"Protestors March Barrio Logan For Immigration Reform
04-12-2009 5:19 AM

(San Diego, CA) -- Around 300 protestors marched through Barrio Logan yesterday to rally for federal immigration reform. The fifth annual Zapata March started in Chicano Park and ran two-miles into the neighborhood. Student groups such as MEChA and Somos Raza organized the event, where marchers of all ages waved Mexican flags and held Spanish signs calling for an end to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Meanwhile, the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition protested higher taxes at Spanish Landing Park."

There are several points to make. First of all, why are they waving Mexican flags? The signs they carried were in Spanish?? If you want to be recognized by the US Government it seems you should go out of your way to at least appear to want to be AMERICAN.

I also love that fact that they want ICE to stop enforcing the Immigration laws!!!! It takes cojones for the immigrants (Many ILLEGAL) to ask for special treatment under the laws of the country that allows them to stage such marches. There are not many places that would put up with this kind of protesting. If you want to live and work in the US, then learn the language. That would be ENGLISH. But, even before that, enter the country via LEGAL means.

I wonder if any of the protestors are aware of the immigration laws and enforcement in Mexico. Mexico deports more illegal aliens than the US. It is a felony to be in Mexico illegally. Persons in this country illegally have somehow managed (via attorneys) to get our Court system to treat them as if they had the same rights as those of us legally born in the US. I believe Congress has a responsibility to change the Immigration laws that allow anyone born on US soil to be an American citizen. Such a law should require parents of the baby to have lived LEGALLY in the US for at least 1 full year. Only then would the child be considered an American citizen. Too many lawyers use the words, "rights of illegal aliens". Why do they have ANY rights? Every single ILLEGAL alien should be deported. NOW is not soon enough. Such action would include many people I know. But, there is a principle involved here and I'm on the side of enforcing the laws.

I mentioned speaking English. I think this is a major issue for many Americans. It is a sign that there is no intent on the part of the Spanish speaker to become American, rather they just cross the border, take a job (no enforcement of employer verification) and send money to Mexico. I concede that many immigrant workers live in squalor, but they CHOSE to take this journey. This is especially true in the current economic crisis. Speaking Spanish and making no effort to learn English is a way to stand out, not hide. I was with a friend in Old Town recently and we ran into someone my friend knew. The other person spoke Spanish. My friend looked at me apologetically, saying, I am sorry, she doesn't speak English. I asked how long she had been here (US) and she said 18 years! She went to school here. How can that be, I asked. Apparently she was able to pass because the tests are in Spanish and even their schoolbooks have a Spanish version. I want to verify the veracity of that and will write more in a future blog.

I will also share with you regarding how Mexico treats ILLEGAL aliens while asking the US government to allow their citizens to continue to live here (as long as they continue to send money to Mexico?).

So long
