Quote of the Day: On Illegal Immigration (081405)

Filed under: Biz Weak,Immigration,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 7:45 am

From a Business Week (that’s Biz Weak around here) letter to the editor (requires subscription) in the August 8 issue, in reaction to the magazine’s “Embracing Illegals” cover story of July 18:

“Embracing illegals” made me absolutely furious. Illegal aliens sneak into the U.S. in defiance of our laws; they take our jobs and lower our wages. To add insult to injury, we, the American taxpayers, have to pay for their health care, education for their children, help with the rent, and food stamps. Now our federal and local governments are rewarding illegal aliens by making it possible for them to buy homes.

Meanwhile, my newlywed daughter and her husband, both American citizens, are paying off their school loans, and it will be a freezing day in hell before they can afford to buy a home of their own! In its quest for taxpayer-subsidized illegal labor, our government is destroying the United States of America.

By the way, I’m Hispanic.
