Conservative Corner: The Land of Milk and Honey

The United States of America is truly a wondrous country. Where else on this planet can a person climb over a fence or crawl through a ditch, enter into a country illegally, but still get free health care, food stamps, free money, free car, and a free house and still get treated like a loyal citizen even though many still claim loyalty and allegiance to their home country? Why, in America, of course!
As if giving away “free” stuff to illegal aliens isn’t bad enough, on April 2nd Oregon’s Governor John Kitzhaber was proud to sign House Bill 2787 into law, according to
HB 2787 is also labeled the Tuition Equity Bill which now gives the children of illegal aliens the same tuition in Oregon’s colleges and universities as its citizens. An article states House Bill 2787 would grant in-state tuition for undocumented students who have attended school in the country for at least five years; studied at an Oregon high school for at least three years, and graduated; and show intention to become a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
Undocumented, however, seems to be the key word. A few days ago The Associated Press, the largest press collecting group on the planet, has announced that it will no longer use the term “illegal alien” when it comes to people in the United States who have come into the country without proper documentation, as reported by The announcement, it seems, is political correctness and media malpractice at its finest. Why should a person who is in the country without proper documents be given so much, while there are those who have been trying for years to integrate successfully into our country the right way and continually find road blocks on their path to American citizenship.
It is understood that everyone deserves a chance at a better life for his or her self and their families, however, why should only certain people be exempt from certain laws and why should certain people obtain special privileges while others have to work hard to maybe get a small chance at happiness.
It has been said that many people come here and stay for many years “undocumented”, but never break any “laws” or do anything bad like robbery or murder, however, imagine this scenario. Little Johnnie steals a pick-up truck at the age of 18 and does not have it registered or licensed, but he drives it for years without “hurting” anyone. He spends the years driving the truck to help people, the elderly, children, and the poor. If the pick-up lasts for many years of good service to the community, does that make is less stolen? Does that make Johnnie less illegal for not having the vehicle properly registered and licensed?
The idea of illegal immigrants getting away with so many perks only reserved for the citizens of this great county is an insult to the residents and a brisk slap in the face to the hard working people who come into America the way our system was designed, as documented immigrants.
To the people, citizens or not, who support these “criminals” who claim to be “undocumented people” or illegal aliens, I say, “Shame on you!” If I have to have “papers” as a citizen and veteran to legally be in my own country, so should the undocumented immigrants from any country, no matter if they came from France, Germany, Russia, Japan, Mexico or even Canada. If the illegal immigrants want to be legal, leave and come back the right way and stop trying to take advantage of “The Land of Milk and Honey”. or
