What's Wrong With This Picture

A thousand students from various high schools in  the Southern California area of Montebello marched in protest to the new Arizona Immigration laws.  I suppose this is a summary of what they think they are protesting.  It's a well known-fact that California hosts a predominant Hispanic population, but this is outrageous.  If people truly feel that the Mexican flag needs to be flown, then why don't they go live in Mexico instead of mocking the freedoms of this country.  Of course one student in particular was fingered for the "crime," but the fact that onlookers stood by and did nothing speaks volumes about what our children are learning in school about America and what a great country this is.

Check out this set of Immigration laws:

1.  There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
  
  2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.

  3. All government business will be conducted in our language.
  
  4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
  
  5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.

  6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will be deported.

 
  7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
 
8. If foreigners come here and buy land... options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.
 
9. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.
 
10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted &, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.

Too strict?

The above laws are current immigration laws of MEXICO !

I stand with Arizona and with all Americans who want to uphold the law. Illegal means AGAINST THE LAW. Why can't people 'get' this? I love the laws at the bottom of this post. Why can't we adopt those laws here, anyway? It would certainly straighten some people out!

WARNING: I support the office of the President, not the person currently holding it!
