Why Undocumented Immigrants Should be Allowed to Vote

126
354

Since its inception, America has been a country of immigrants. People all over the world have come here seeking a better life, and a more prosperous future for their children. But many second, third and fourth generation Americans now believe that they have an exclusive birthright to this land, and that they should be able to deny hardworking first generation immigrants a say in our political system!

Many hardworking American immigrants contribute immeasurably to our economy and society, but they are nevertheless denied the necessary paperwork to vote. Immigrants on H-1B visas are forced to wait years or even decades before receiving ‘official’ citizenship, despite working harder on average and for less pay than privileged Americans with the legal right to vote.

Undocumented immigrants are treated even worse, and are denied even their basic rights such as healthcare, a minimum wage, and the right to collective bargaining. Under our current rigid legal system, undocumented immigrants have no protection under the law, except in a couple of forward thinking sanctuary cities. There are many political issues that affect undocumented immigrants directly, such as amnesty, employment regulations and border controls, and yet they are powerless to influence the political process to achieve outcomes that are more favorable to themselves and their families!

How can we be proud of a country that denies its most hardworking people a right to have a say in our political system? Are we not a country that believes in equal rights for all Americans? Undocumented immigrants and immigrants on work visas deserve to be treated like every other so-called citizen, and deserve to have their voices heard. Only then will their needs be met, their appalling work conditions be improved, and the human rights abuses they suffer be rectified.

Are you serious? If someone breaks into your home and demands all of the food from your refrigerator, are you going to give it to them? What if they also want your furniture and your children’s clothes for their children? If you refuse, and they demand the right to vote on whether you should relinquish what you worked hard to earn, are you going to let them vote?

Hell no. Jesus, get a grip. These people broke into our country and far too many of them came here to receive free healthcare, food stamps, welfare, and even an education for their children. Please tell me why they deserve such things that others have to pay for with their taxes?

Not only should they not be allowed to vote, they should be removed from the country. They are dramatically changing the demographics and the culture of America to that of a third world country!

MillionDollarBonus_

WOW!! That is an UNBELIEVABLY IGNORANT comment!! These people came here for a better life, and to give their children a better future, and as Gary Johnson said, if you were in their shoes, you would have done exactly the same thing!

Deporting people just because they’re undocumented??? Are you racist?? What gives you, a privileged (probably white) American the right to deny others access to the opportunities that this country has to offer? Healthcare and education are HUMAN RIGHTS!! These people are simply trying to meet their basic human needs, and you want to take that away from them??

SHAME ON YOU!!!!!

I don’t care what they came here for, they came here illegally. I heard Immigration & Customs Officers will be at the polls looking for Illegal Aliens to arrest, because their here ILLEGALLY.

Don’t you realize how ignorant that is??? They are PEOPLE just like you!! Looking for a better life – just like you!! Don’t you have any compassion? This land was stolen from the Native Americans and the south western states were stolen from Latinos!

You are under liberal mind control. Check this mind control trigger out: “you are good”. Now are you being “good” believing that people coming here illegally while others, who also want the “good” life, here are kept waiting in line? Are the illegals themselves “good” for coming here illegally? Are the people insisting the POTUS do his job by executing all the immigration laws on the books “good” in wanting people immigrating to do so according to our laws? Are the people wanting to immigrate legally “good”? These variations can’t all be “good”. In fact, only one way can be “good”, the rest must be “not good”. Which of the positions above are “not good”? Are the people respecting the rule of law “not good”? Are the people circumventing the rule of law “not good”? If you say the people circumventing the rule of law are “good”, then you have invalidated the law, which opens the door for a sea of “not good” that is being framed as “good” by whoever chooses to be “not good”. Are you following this? Liberal elites are controlling YOU by redefining “good” to meet their own objectives while you simply believe you were, are, and always will be simply “good.” “Good” means fall in line with whatever definition is currently in vogue. Words are no longer backed by clear meaning, but instead are continually being redefined in order to control YOU. This is a very insidious form of control that YOU are under. To get out of your own invisible oppression, YOU need to define your world according to a master model and STICK WITH IT. Your Creator provided a model for you. That is the only one I can recommend. I hope you find your way.

I want open borders so that EVERYONE can come here easily and live the life they deserve. Diversity enriches our society and boosts our economy. Why do you want to keep people out who only want the same thing you do?? Racism? Xenophobia? Islamaphobia? What is it?

Saxon

“Diversity” does not “enrich” our society. Encouraging people that don’t want to assimilate to American culture to come here and NOT assimilate does nothing but Balkanize the country into little ethnic areas. Little ethnic areas that the Democrats/establishment can then play off each other to remain in power. If someone wants to move here and become an American and learn English and adapt to our ways, that’s fine. Let them do it legally. NO other country on the planet allows people to flood in and then demand that the people already living there adapt to their incoming culture(s). There’s no reason America should do so. If I were to go live in Mexico, I’d learn Spanish before doing so. I would also not then demand that the Mexicans adapt to my American ways. I would conform to theirs, because it’s their country. The same should apply to America. If you want to “embrace diversity” feel free to move elsewhere to experience different cultures.

Dont you understand that controlled immigration is the only way to allow it , that uncontrolled immigration will bring disease , undesirables , and burdensome costs?

Are you an adult or what? , how do you think? , does it have to be explained to you that all people are not wonderful and desirable and that we have the right to choose who we admit to our country?

First they broke the law.Million Dollar wants to just get rid of prisons and allow anybody to break laws because they are only doing it to improve their lifestyles and that of their families. The only nations that opened borders now are going bankrupt and have to deal with high crime rates. Sure Human Rights and their governments should take care of them.

Your argument about the U.S. should be obligated to feed and provide medical to the world; Hell why don’t we annex all nations and support their people that way? Then EVERYONE will be under a ‘wonderful’ healthcare system and Fed. This same U.S. has an ‘obligation’ is the same crap that got us into Somalia. ‘Oh the Poor people are starving and the big mean warlords won’t feed them;. The United States already give the most Humanitarian Assistance and financial aid to other nations. You condone breaking laws and just handing over benefits. Let the U.S. finally worry about taking care of ourselves.

Tell you what; I’ll support amnesty to your illegal aliens in exchange for the United States stopping all Humanitarian, Financial, and military aid to countries that are the source of such high illegal border crossings. That way we can build a wall and let them walk into a door not just across an imaginary line.

OMG you REALLY need to get an education! First of all, prisons ARE oppressive and racist. Look at the number of African Americans who are incarcerated? These peoples’ lives a ruined once they get a criminal record, as they can’t get a job or advance in society, which only serves to protect white privilege.

Secondly, YES WE CAN AND SHOULD provide healthcare to the rest of the world. We, along with other white countries owe reparations for slavery and racism against people of color. We are the richest country on earth, and can EASILY afford to pay a little more to support the healthcare costs of other nations.

CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE.

Ron Garland

That’s the only thing I can think of that would make someone say prisons are oppressive and that America should provide healthcare for the rest of the world and pay reparations for slavery.

It’s probably both…and I’m through communicating with you because arguing with an idiot will at some point make both parties sound like idiots.

You know what … I completely agree with you MillionDollarBonus. Prisons are oppressive AND racist. But, I’ve got just the solution. What’s your address? What are the addresses of your friends, relatives and co-workers? I have some connections at the Bureau of Prisons, and I know I can gather-up just about ALL the inmates (I’ll make sure to select illegal’s and blacks so you don’t think I’m being racist) …and I will PERSONALLY drive all of them to your house, friends, relatives and co-workers homes – so they can STAY WITH all of you instead of in that stinky-racist jail. And just so you don’t think I’m fooling-around, and to prove that I am a real Liberal-Cult member (I’m on your side fellow follower) I will make sure to give them all weapons and take all of yours away – so they have a fighting chance and all…right? Oh, and also – please make sure to stock the fridge, get some extra furniture, bedding, linens, clothing and school supplies, because the illegals will be attending school and assuming jobs in place of you and all friends, family, co-workers. It will be great! Not sure what you’d like me to do with all the blackmen I have, so I guess I’ll just let them loose in your neighborhood, they will have some weapons too, so don’t worry – they’ll be safe. PEACE!
P>S> Don’t forget to reply back with all those addresses …kay? xoxo

” We, along with other white countries owe reparations for slavery and racism against people of color.” Really? Only white people had slaves? Only ‘people of color’ were slaves? I don’t suppose there is any slavery going on now? Especially in countries predominately filled with ‘people of color’?

You are a complete moron, but with a good heart. What you should do is go to south Chicago and offer yourself up as a slave to reply what you owe. My ancestors fought for an end to slavery, participated in the underground railroad, and died fighting in the civil war. Maybe I’m owed reparations.

In reality, America is nation of immigrants, so immigrants are the only real americans. There’s a poem on the Statue of Liberty written by a Marxist jew THEREFORE, foreigners and the detritus of the world ARE the real Americans.

They are the ONLY ones who should be voting. You can look at their track record back in their nations of origin of successfully voting in corrupt leader after corrupt leader and see how they are PERFECT to do the voting here. Their original cultures are socialist paradises. We need that sentiment HERE.

I agree million dollar , whoever comes here regardless of how should have full rights and benefits .

By the way , I represent 500 million people looking to get into the U.S. , can you advize me on just how to get full benefits for all 500 million?

I’m a realist though and fully realize that all 500 million may be a bit high ,we can probably cut that number down substantially if needed to around 300 million .

By the way , I also agree with your comment on zero hedge that the poll showing Hol-liary ahead by 11 pissent is perfectly credible and statistically accurate , forget that it was sponsored by Hil-liary donors , that’s immaterial to the fact that any poll polling an incredible 500 people cannot possibly be anything but indicative of how millions will vote .

It is NOT anti-immigrant, it is pro-America. Your logic is so flawed that it’s breathtaking. Your whole concept of a great America is to allow anyone and everyone into America who wants to come. You have no concept of borders, language, culture, economic and political systems,, rule of law or anything else about sovereignty. You just want something so, therefore, it must be the right thing to do.Everything you believe in is hate-based. You absolutely HATE America, especially white America.

That is the lamest excuse. There needs to be order and law to immigrants coming into this nation. Just as there was way back in the beginning.

Oh and they are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS not undocumented immigrants. The illegal part comes into play because what they did (crossed the border, overstayed their visa, etc) was ILLEGAL.

MillionDollarBonus_

Excuse me?? ‘Illegal’ is an OFFENSIVE term for undocumented immigrants!! Have you been living under a rock? Even gary Johnson, the libertarian party leader believes that it’s an offensive, unacceptable term!

And your understanding of history is completely wrong. The Native Americans lived at one with nature before the white man came – they didn’t have wars or conquest. Eurocentric history tries to paint them as savages, but this is just a way to justify white privilege and white supremacy! LEARN REAL HISTORY!

MillionDollarBonus_

It’s WHITE NATURE to conquer and steal resources. Native Americans and Africans lived in peace before the white man came. They had very little, if any, conflict. They were more technologically advanced than Europe (research the Nubian empire), and they lived in harmony with nature. They didn’t burn fossil fuels and contribute to climate change like we do, and they shared resources instead of hoarding them. White capitalism is an abomination to this land, and needs to be replaced with something more like what the Native Americans had before we invaded this country.

Notice “Citizens”

This is not a country without borders and there is a reason for that. Same reason every nation in the world has borders and immigration policies. Are you really trying to say anyone should be able to just waltz right in and do as they please? Get a grip on yourself sir.

But I am glad to see you took the liberal way out immediately and injected white privilege and racism into your response to Ron. That was truly surprising.

The constitution?? The constitution is a LIVING DOCUMENT. Every top constitutional scholar admits this! It’s meant to be interpreted in a way appropriate to the times! HELLOOO????

That means Latinos and Muslims have every right to vote as Whites.

Supporting Donald Trump is HATE SPEECH. People like Donald Trump should NOT BE ALLOWED to participate in political discussions. Most progressive countries ban fascists like Trump from even running for political office.

Actually, I was hoping you actually KNEW the definition and could articulate it with your own words. But that’s beside the point, so here’s the point…

You holier than thou people on the left are experts at seizing the moral high ground. You do it by redefining words, concepts and issues into what you want them to be. You flippantly state that Trump and I are racists because we want to protect the foundations of this great country, contrary to your wishes.

You don’t even believe America is good, much less great. You believe it should be totally transformed into your view of what a great country should be and you conveniently ignore that America is the greatest economic and military force in history, and the greatest force for good the world has ever known.

You put a label on people like me and Trump and then march off to attach more labels to more people until you’ve labeled all of your enemies, and then you wonder why you have no credibility. How can anyone living in America credibly state that someone with a differing view from you should have no rights?

So just how much money do we have?

Let’s see now , $20 trillion in debt .

Can anyone calculate just how many we can allow to enter the country needing benefits before we go broke completely?

Dont the free border liberals here understand that our resources are not infinite , it’s like listening to schoolchildren who want to be good but with OPM – other people’s money – and dont understand that there isn’t a magic wallet that never runs out of cash .

That’s why our immigration laws are designed to allow a certain amount of
self reliant immigrants into the country as well as those with special skills and talents , and as well individuals in desperate need .

But we cant , for example , just import the entire Syrian population and support many of them while some – not many , but some – plot against us .

For a genocidal scenario like that , we have to create a “safe zone” in their own country , which will help more in need than just the one’s lucky enough to come here .

Our resources are not infiinite , not can our responsibility to others be ,
America is a great and generous country , but not an omnipotent one .

Donald Trump is not the “distant past.” Whites need to accept PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY and pay reparations NOW, or we’ll take it ourselves.

I came here legally. I waited in line for years. So did my wife. We worked our way into the 1%. Guess what. I don’t want people breaking the law for a better life. That would mean all criminals who steal personal property or ID theft who just want a better life, are not criminals either. People who come illegally ALREADY have questionable character. If they were HONEST. They would come here legally. Do you understand that?

So you’re part of the 1% capitalist scum that is oppressing womyn and people of color?? Shame on you!! Why don’t you give something BACK to the world that gave you what you have, by letting others come to America to live their dreams. You are unbelievably selfish!!

First of all, Black Lives Matter is a hate group going nothing but stirring the pot – not solving any real issues.. That much has been proven.

Second, the constitution and its’ subsequent amendments apply to U.S. CITIZENS ONLY. Common knowledge.

Third, ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION is NOT a race issue, no matter how much you slackjawed mouthbreathers want it to be. It is a LEGAL issue. Every nation has borders, it’s not an exclusive white thing. And if you get caught illegaly crossing into ANY other country? They aren’t going to drive you to the polls. But WE should?

You lefitist ideologues are the biggest bunch of uninformed halfwits on the planet. Please, for the sake of future generations, seek sterilization. The world can’t handle anymore stupid.

I don’t see Donald Trump promoting a ban on immigration from Iceland. But he did promote a ban on brown Muslims from the Middle East.

MillionDollarBonus_

Exactly. It’s all thinly veiled racism and Islamaphobia. I was really shocked at how Trump simply dismissed the question that the Muslim American lady asked him about Islamaphobia during the debate. Hillary laid out specific steps that she would take to end racism and disrimination, but Trump just ignored her question and went right back to fearmongering about ISIS!

There aren’t very many – if any – Muslim terrorists in Iceland, genius.

America has vastly more gun crime than Muslim countries. So why do you insult Muslims and call them “terrorists”? Islam is a RELIGION OF PEACE.

Ron Garland

You are irredeemably biased against America. It’s interesting how you conveniently ignore the multiple terrorist attacks on this country and others worldwide. What the hell is wrong with you? Really? Are you mentally ill? Why don’t you move to the Muslim country of your choice if you love Islam so much? For the record, Muslims have never said they are a religion of peace. That was an invention by liberal politicians right here in America in order to “keep the peace” after the TERRORIST attacks on September 11, 2001. Get lost.

The alt-right are the terrorists. Remember Dylann Roof? Was he a Muslim?

You are a lost soul. You know it, I know it, and everyone reading your posts know it. The single most racist group in this country is the Black Lives Matter crowd, of which you are a member. There is more racism directed at whites by blacks than the reverse. White Americans are told that we are racists by your crowd simply because we were born white. How do you get more racist than that!? You one sick human being.

Only because of Icelandic White privilege and racism.

LOL. Of course. Why didn’t I think of that! I think all white people should just take themselves out and shoot themselves for the crime of being white. But first they should transfer their entire net worth to Black Lives Matter. It’s only right.

So the 1% is allowed to come into the country, but poor People of Color who sweep your floors, construct your buildings, mow your lawns, clean your toilets, work your fields, and serve your food are not allowed to stay in the country that they built?

Trump supporters here need to STOP THE HATE. The 1%ers, like Marcus, have you fooled. The capitalists are the problem. The proletariat needs to unite together. That’s why we need more undocumented workers voting and why we need Hillary Rodham Clinton as President.

Right. There’s no hate coming from BLM, is there? LMAO Now let me give you your definition of hate: No open borders, vetting of refugees or they don’t get in, no illegal entry into the country, if you get into our country illegally you must leave, if you get into our country illegally you can’t vote, if you get into our country illegally you are not eligible for government benefits. Do I have that right?

Black Lives Matter is about LOVE FOR BLACK LIVES.

Donald Trump’s “Republican Party is a HATE GROUP. Basically anything Trump says is hate speech. Yes, that includes Trump’s comments on “borders,” “vetting,” etc.

LOL And HATE FOR WHITE LIVES. Right. Anyone who disagrees with you is a hater. But that creates a real dilemma for you, doesn’t it? Because you are a classic example of self-hatred. LMAO

Black Lives Matter is a “hate whites” group. More whites are shot by cops than blacks. Look it up. With few exceptions, those shot by cops were doing something stupid: Failure to comply. Threatening. Attacking.

Do us a favor and work to reform ‘your’ community (since you’re the one using race in your group’s name – inherently separatist and racist). Don’t defend wrongdoers, call them out. Expose and educate them.

Nobody can make any group equal EXCEPT MEMBERS OF THAT GROUP.

A little poem for you:

Obey,
Comply,
and you
Won’t die.

So if we obey and comply now, like good little slaves, then we won’t be shot by pigs? What about our civil rights?

I do expose wrongdoers: RACIST WHITES.

Go back to the Donald Trump rally.

Dont you dare call cops pigs , you moron . Now you’ve gone over the line from moron to scumbag . Cops protect us ALL , and risk their lives doing so . A TINY PISSENT of Blacks are killed by cops and most armed at the time .
The handful of actual bad shoots is so small that you morons making a big deal out of it expect 100% of Officers to be perfect , which has never and will never be the case in history , you freakin’ freak .

Immigration laws are unjust laws. Unjust laws need to be repealed.

The real problem here is the Republican Party which blocks any repeal of these unjust laws. However, the good news is, the Republican Party is imploding!

A two-party political system is very inefficient. Once the Republicans are totally done for, we can build a one-party political system whereby real Change can take place. The Congress and the POTUS will be aligned politically.

Ms. Clinton will be able to bring about real Change after the Republicans have been defeated once and for all!

Stop calling them undocumented immigrants, you PC dumbshit. They’re illegal aliens.

Immigrants are – have always been – VERY welcome here. Follow the process (law). Wait your turn. Pay your taxes. Assimilate. Contribute. Become American.

Otherwise, you’re here illegally. Get out.

What you’re saying is that if People of Color act white, then they won’t be attacked by white pigs.

Sorry, but it’s not your country any more. The good ole white days are OVER.

I’m calling the pigs who shoot unarmed Black people pigs. You’re the scumbag for defending them. What about Mike Brown? What about Laquan McDonald? What about Philando Castile? What about Alton Sterling? What about Eric Garner? BLACK LIVES MATTER

No , you called “the cops” pigs .

You are noting a few horrible occurrences , they are heartbreaking , but do not constitute an epidemic , it is a few occurrences , some WARRANTED! , the “pig” you note per Mike Brown is A HERO , he confronted a VIOLENT THUG ,
he risked his life FOR YOU and you call him a pig after being attacked by A VICIOUS THUG and shooting .

You’re right , you aren’t a scumbag , you’re a moron .

At least note only the (very few) wrongful incidents , and I agree that the handful of actually guilty cops should be addressed , but that’s it .
