Great American Backlash

Something happened to day in the streets of Chicago. 100,000 protesters were granted a wish. Their wish? They want to get a message to America. They wish to create a turning point in the fight for immigration status and reform and show American what they mean to us. It happened. It happened in the streets of Los Angeles, Houston, New York and many other cities in our Nation. The cries and the message of the illegal immigrants have been heard loud and clear by the American public and we will do something about it. The message: We feel we have an inalienable right to your services, jobs, liberties, and in more extreme cases, your very land and liberty. We have the same rights as citizens of the United States simply from being able to hide in your country and break your laws long enough. You’re politicians pander to us for [illegal] votes, so you are basically helpless to do anything but accept our will, make us citizens and make your country more like ours. That was the message I heard, and I think you heard it too. Now the momentum has swung to the other side. Today Americans, including many Democrats and Republicans alike, Legal Immigrants, and a plethora of unlikely citizens from all walks of life heard much more than they bargained for and are angry and acting. They saw firsthand, what those in the know, knew for many years, that there is a potentially disastrous and total disregard for our laws, sovereign borders, customs, patriotism, and peoples. Many voices were heard today and many eyes opened. No longer can our elected leaders ignore this problem. Now is the time to put the pressure on them and spread the word, while true Americans are rallied. Tell them that we will not stand for unsecure borders, fleecing of our government and health services, full amnesty programs, ineffective enforcement and immigration processing. Perhaps, some of today’s protesters will have second thoughts of flaunting their “economic power” now that the Great American Backlash is about to be unleashed. The American people were outraged and insulted today by the blatant, “in your face”, show of disrespect for our laws and culture, to the point that many are finally starting to act and pressure our leadership. The floodgates are about to be closed, the jobs will become scarce and the “free ride to freedom” will be quelled. It has made people see the need for real reform and less rhetoric and the urgency to get good legislation passed despite the reluctance of business and politicians to do so. The message is also clear that we must do something about the people who are here, and those waiting. This country was founded on, and thrives from legal immigrants of all peoples who wish to live free and pursue happiness. I take pride being a patriotic citizen of one of the most culturally diverse nations on the globe. However, we must stop the pillaging of our jobs and government services and stop the unchecked flow of illegal immigrants at our borders, lest we lose the very security that allows us to be free and continue welcome the worlds peoples with open arms.
