    Civil rights belong only to citizens

    Civil Rights — noun plural; the nonpolitical rights of a citizen; especially: the rights of personal liberty guaranteed to U.S. citizens by the 13th and 14th amendments to the Constitution and by acts of Congress. Merriam-Webster English dictionary.

    Forty years ago, black Americans were rightfully demanding that the U.S. Constitution and American law apply equally for all citizens. Such a radical concept is now too often considered un-American or worse when applied to illegal immigration.

    In the 21st century, do we now not enforce our immigration laws because of national origin?

    A recent report in The Red & Black begins by telling readers “Hispanics are marching for the same reasons that blacks marched forty years ago.”

    It then goes on to tell us that organizers are attempting to “emphasize the human rights of undocumented immigrants,” then, that they hope to promote justice for immigrants.

    Which is it?

    “Immigrants”, by definition enter the U.S. lawfully. “Hispanic” describes people from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Central and South America, no matter their race.

    Is it The Red & Black’s report that both of these groups are the target of legislation in Georgia?

    Is it a human rights abuse to have borders and immigration laws?

    An alien present in the U.S. in violation of the law is here illegally. Isn’t the real issue here the capitulation to illegal aliens, the ethnic lobby and those criminals who profit from them both?

    It is a federal felony to employ, assist, transport, shelter or encourage an illegal alien to remain in the United States. Inviting Ga. Sen. Sam Zamarripa - who is founding partner of a bank that is making mortgage loans to illegals — to “further discuss the controversy of the legislation” serves to make the reality of the agenda very clear for many who are paying attention.

    In today’s America there are two camps on illegal immigration. One that demands secure borders and equal enforcement of American laws — and those who oppose exactly that while shamelessly using any mindless twisting of the concept of “justice” to advance their separatist but highly profitable agenda.

    English is an optional language in Georgia. The ubiquitous Mexican tri-color flying over Georgia illustrates perfectly the reality of the willingness or intention to assimilate.

    Now we are told that it is a violation of “human rights” if we don’t wave the white flag of surrender, ignore existing American law and award all illegals the rights of citizens, or else.

    No gracias. What would our grandfathers say? Which laws do we ignore next?

    Federal law mandates K-12 education for all children in the U.S. — regardless of immigration status, as it does emergency medical care for all. It also addresses in-state tuition for illegal aliens very clearly. Umm ... no — not unless that rate is applied to all students.

    As much as the illegal alien lobby would like to use children and “civil rights” as a wedge to create division in our nation, pending legislation being considered at the State Capitol does not affect either of the above.

    Several pending bills are aimed at the employment of taxpayer-subsidized black market labor.

    Senate Bill 170 requires that an applicant for non-federally mandated services provide proof of legal residency to access taxpayer benefits, no matter from where that applicant comes.

    For those who regard this as “mean-spirited,” check with the 12,000 or so Georgia senior citizens who are on a waiting list for services because of budgetary limitations and see if they agree. Por favor.

    Civil Rights indeed.

    I'll never understand why so few take our friend in Colorado seriously. I think he has always hit the nail squarely on the head. The illegal immigration problem is on a par with the extreme danger to this country from the Islamist terrorists.
