LETTER FROM A RETIRED BORDER PATROL AGENT:
This letter sent to Tennessee Senator Bill Frist from a retired border
and it has more common sense than all the bull being spewed
with the exception of a few sensible representatives.
There is a huge amount of propaganda and myths
about illegal aliens,
particularly illegal Mexican, Salvadorian,
and Honduran aliens.
#1. Illegal aliens generally do NOT want US
citizenship. Americans are very vain
thinking that everybody in the
wants to be a US citizen. Mexicans, and
other nationalities want to
citizens of their home countries while obtaining
the benefits offered
United States such as employment, medical care,
subsidized housing and free education for their
offspring. Their main
attraction is employment and their loyalty usually remains
benefits earned and subsidized by middle class Americans.
want are benefits of American residence without paying
are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal aliens are doing jobs
can't take and still support their families. Illegal aliens
low wage jobs, live dozens in a single residence home, share
send money to their home country. There are no jobs that
do for a decent wage.
#3. Every person who illegally
this nation left a home. They are NOT
homeless and they are NOT
Some left jobs in their home countries.
They come to send money to
home as evidenced by the more than 20
billion dollars sent out of the
each year by illegal aliens. These illegal
aliens knowingly and
entered this nation in violation of the law and
therefore assumed the
detection and deportation. Those who brought their
responsibility and risk on behalf of their children.
are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal aliens constitute less
the workforce. However, they reduce wages and benefits for lawful
#5. This is NOT an immigrant nation. There are 280
Americans. While it is true that this nation was settled
immigrants (legal immigrants), it is also true that there
is not a
this planet that was not settled by immigrants at one time
#6. The United States is welcoming to legal immigrants.

immigrants by definition. The US accepts more lawful
immigrants every year
than the rest of the world combined.
is no such thing as the "Hispanic vote." Hispanics are white, brown,
every shade in between. Hispanics are Republicans, Democrats,
Marxists and Independents. The so-called "Hispanic
vote" is a
myth. Pandering to illegal aliens to get the Hispanic vote is a dead
#8. Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States. Since 1848
resented the United States. During World War I Mexico allowed
Spies to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the US. During World War II
allowed the Axis powers to spy on the US from Mexico. During the Cold
allowed spies hostile to the US to operate freely. The attack on the
in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico. Today Mexican
children are taught that the US stole California, Arizona, New Mexico
If you don't believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for
#9. Although some illegal aliens enter this
a better life, there are 6 billion people on this planet. At least 1
those live on less than one dollar a day. If wanting a better life is a
excuse to break the law and sneak into America, then let's allow those
billion to come to America and we'll turn the USA into a Third World
overnight. Besides, there are 280 million native born Americans who want
better life. I'll bet Bill Gates and Donald Trump want a better life.
the USA lifeboat be full? Since when is wanting a better life a good
trash another nation?
#10. There is a labor shortage in this
This is a lie. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of
housewives, senior citizens, students,unemployed and underemployed who
gladly take jobs at a decent wage.
#11. It is racist to want
borders. What is racist about wanting secure
borders and a secure
What is racist about not wanting people to sneak into America and steal
we have set aside for legal aliens, senior citizens, children and other
residents? What is it about race that entitles people to violate our
identities, and take the American Dream without paying the price? For
decades American politicians have refused to secure our borders and look
the welfare of middle class Americans. These politicians have been of
parties. A huge debt to American society has resulted. This debt will be
satisfied and the interest will be high. There has already been riots in
streets by illegal aliens and their supporters. There will be more. You,
politician, have a choice to offend the illegal aliens who have stolen
country and demanded the rights afforded to US citizens or to
us who are stakeholders in this country. The interest will be steep
There will be civil unrest. There will be a reckoning. Do you have the
to do what is right for America? Or, will you bow to the wants and needs
those who don't even have the right to remain here? There will be a
It will come in November of this year. We will not allow America to be
third world agitators and thieves.
