If You Cross the Border Illegally...

Categories: PoliticsHumor

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.

However, if you cross the U.S. border illegally, you get...

a job,  a driver's license, 

a Social Security card, 

welfare,  food stamps, 

credit cards, 

subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house,

free education, 

free health care, 

a lobbyist in Washington, 

billions of dollars worth of
public documents printed in your language,

the right to carry your country's flag
while you protest that you don't get enough respect,

and, in many instances, you can vote!

Jonas - Feb 2, 2017 09:29:56 — Thanks for the link, bb.  So much of the counter-claims made by author, ddshostakovich, is irrelevant.  He/she is arguing over the bark on trees, and ignoring the problem facing the forest.

1) Forget about North Korean, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, China, Venezuela, and Cuba.  Reverse the perspective.  Name the countries in history who have opened their borders to immigrants without restrictions.  I'm not a history buff, but I don't know of any - past or present.  As far as I know, every country on the planet has secure borders (except America, which is the reason we're having this discussion).  So even if we cite our closest allies rather than the most oppressive regimes, the end result would be the same.  In order to survive as a nation, every country must have secure borders.  If any country is to have safe, secure, orderly immigration, it must have laws that include a process for immigration, and it must enforce those laws.  It's not complicated.

2) What illegal immigrants contribute to America is irrelevant, as are the benefits they receive.  Those of us who are concerned about immigration have one focus: That immigrants come into our country through the established immigration process.  Unfortunately, that process is too complicated and expensive for the vast majority of immigrants, so many choose to side-step it which makes those immigrants criminals from the get-go, hence the term "illegal immigrants."

3) I've never heard anyone argue that "our country's problems are the result of foreigners."  Never.  Not one person.  But we can reasonably and logically say that the vast majority of our country's illegal immigration problems are the result of illegal immigrants.  The other fault lies at the feet of those who want to reward illegal immigrants with entitlements and benefits such as drivers licenses, food stamps, housing, child care benefits, education, health care, etc.  Whether a single illegal immigrant actually receives those benefits is, again, irrelevant.  The mere possibility of receiving those rewards is incentive to immigrate illegally.

The bottom line:  By entering the U.S. illegally, illegal immigrants are criminals from the start.  Many believe such criminals are not deserving of the great rewards and benefits of living in America, and are deserving of punishment for the crimes they commit.  I agree.

Finally, I can't resist pointing out the hypocrisy of ddshostakovich who claims to be offended by "this entire screed" (i.e., conservative point of view), yet includes known offensive language in the same paragraph.

Thanks again for visiting my site!

Kim Jong Un - Jul 15, 2018 11:17:26 — If you enter my country illegally you will be rich!!!! :D
San Juan - Jan 14, 2019 11:20:51 — The left wing nut comments posted by the leftist TROLL, ddshostakovich & all the responders on HIS page, exhibit classic examples of the mindset & the kind of lies being spun by evil, leftist, socialist, liberal, progressive, global elitist in America.
