It's not racism stupid! You are here ILLEGALLY!

A friend of mine recently became a fan of this facebook page “It's not racism stupid! You are here ILLEGALLY!” And since I recently posted my support of the new law in Arizona on illegal immigration and that people are all in a huff about it. I figured I’d check out the facebook page. I didn’t become a fan of it, because I don’t care for the extremely hostile attitude it seems to represent, and that the admin of the site refuses to engage in any debate on the subject stating, “Don't email me with any liberal rhetoric or hyperbole.I will not respond and you will be blocked!!”

But, the facebook page does make an interesting point on the subject that I figured I would copy and paste here with a comparison of the U.S. vs. a few other countries.


-IF YOU CROSS THE MEXICAN BORDER YOU PAY A FINE AND ARE DEPORTED, THE SECOND TIME YOU ARE JAILED FOR UP TO 10 YEARS.
-IF YOU CROSS THE FRENCH BORDER YOU ARE FINED,JAILED AND THEN DEPORTED.
-IF YOU ENTER ENGLAND ILLEGALLY YOU ARE FINED 10,000 AND DEPORTED
IF YOU ENTER ITALY ILLEGALLY YOU ARE FINED 13000 EURO AND DEPORTED
- IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR.
- IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY.
- IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR.
- IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY.
- IF YOU CROSS THE AFGHAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU GET SHOT.
- IF YOU CROSS THE SAUDI ARABIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE JAILED.
- IF YOU CROSS THE CHINESE BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU MAY NEVER BE HEARD FROM AGAIN.
- IF YOU CROSS THE VENEZUELAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE BRANDED A SPY AND YOUR FATE WILL BE SEALED.
- IF YOU CROSS THE CUBAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE THROWN INTO POLITICAL PRISON TO ROT.

He also has a list titled, “IF YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET................................”

But his list is not actually correct, and it only takes a couple of minutes on the internet to verify.

1 - A JOB,
True. That’s why they are here after all.

2 - A DRIVERS LICENSE,
True. Some states will legally issue illegal immigrants drivers licenses. And a couple other states have loopholes that allow illegal immigrants to get one. about 15 states total, including my state of Washington. I can see both sides of this debate.

3 - SOCIAL SECURITY CARD, -
Not true. This is a lie. Only legal immigrants can get one.

4 - WELFARE, -
Not true. According to the Congressional Research Service points out in a 2007 report, “undocumented immigrants are not eligible to receive public "welfare" benefits”

5 - FOOD STAMPS,
This is partially true. The illegal immigrant is not eligible, but if they have a child while in America the parent can get food stamps for the child. Which obviously means, they could eat that same food.

6 - CREDIT CARDS, -
This isn’t a government supported issue, so who cares. If a credit card company chooses to give an illegal immigrant a credit card, that’s their choice. They are a company after all.

7 - SUBSIDIZED RENT OR A LOAN TO BUY A HOUSE,
This is partially true as well, depending on the context it is taken. based on how the law is written federal housing laws state that illegal aliens can live in federally-subsidized public housing as long as at least one family member is in the U.S. legally. As in, the legal resident is the tenant.

8 - FREE EDUCATION,
This is another one that could be true or false depending on the context, and varies from state to state. But for the most part, the parents don’t get a free education but their children can attend public schools. And some states will allow those children to enroll in college. Keep in mind, they would still have to pay that college tuition like the rest of us.

9 - FREE HEALTH CARE,
Technically anyone can walk into an emergency room and get health care - citizen or not. The hospital, or community health center, can attempt to bill them, and I would image just like many U.S. citizens do, they don’t pay. Is the argument here that we should just let the person bleed and die in the street? Is that what Jesus would do?

10 - A LOBBYIST IN WASHINGTON,
My motorcycle club has a lobbyist in Washington. BFD! As long as the lobbyists are citizens or here legally they can lobby for whatever they want. We live in America afterall.

11 - BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGE,
True. If I moved to another country, I would put a lot of effort into learning the language. I think it’s only fare to expect the same from anyone moving here… legally of course.

12 - AND THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST THAT YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH RESPECT.
True. I wonder how this person feels when they see people burning the U.S. flag on the street of the Middle East? Maybe we should beat these protesters in the streets and burn there flag? Would that be the American thing to do.

Note: When I eventually create a list of top 10 reasons you are a douche-bag, I will include people who use ALL CAPS to make a point.

This group banned me.This is a hate group on FB that discussed day in and day about how to kill illegal Mexicans, how Mexicans ( or Latinos) should not speak Spanish even though English isn't the offical language, etc. They refered to Mexcians as roaches, rodents, anchor babies. ...They claimed there is an invasion even though only 12% of the US is foreign born.

They started complaining about how Mexicans fly their flag. When I posted links and pics of the Italian American, Polish American flag, German American and Irish American flag on US soil, they got livid and blocked me.

Pretty funny-they can't handle the truth or freedom of speech.

So besides posting inaccurate information, they also refuse to listen to alternative points of views. Sounds a lot like most other right-wing radical groups.

And yeah, I’ve noticed that as well. Organizations like this rant and rave about “America” and the “freedoms” we have, and the constitution, yet they don’t actually follow the laws and beliefs built into that constitution themselves.

I am a member of this group and can assure you that we are neither a hate group nor do we sit around discussing killing anyone. If you were banned then you most likely came into our group spewing hate towards an individual or particular racial group or you personally attacked or threatened someone. Get over yourself and stop spreading lies about us just because you don't agree with our opinions.
