Today I witnessed a press conference where a woman (American Citizen) wanted to complain about her husband (illegal alien) being deported leaving her alone with their two children. She spoke how they met when he illegally entered the United States at the age of 14, became friends, dated, fell in love and had two children together. She also said they were tax paying, law abiding citizens. She was surrounding by people supporting her and it appeared she was looking for sympathy.
My thoughts in order are:
- He entered America illegally;
- He had many opportunities over 17 years in the states to go back and re-enter legally;
- If he was paying taxes, that means he was also committing identity theft (can’t pay taxes without a social security number and if he had one, as an illegal it belonged to someone else);
- If she wanted to avoid having her husband deported, why didn’t they return to Mexico, get married there and then sponsor him as her spouse into America?
- How can you be a good citizen when entering a country illegally does not make you a citizen?
- Where does being an identity thief quantify being a good citizen?
- Does not being married to an illegal alien using someone else’s social security number not make her an accomplice to the felony of identity theft?
So it really comes down to a woman who got caught with her criminal husband, who ended up being deported, wanting sympathy for their criminal activity. I have absolutely no sympathy for her or her husband as they were both witting participants, but I do have sympathy for the children who have no part in their parents activity.
So, my thought for today is:
If you don’t want to get deported, don’t enter the country illegally. If you think America is wrong for deporting those who enter America illegally, take a peek at Mexico and other countries do to those they catch in their country illegally. ~ ME
