Alien Nation

Attributed to the LA Times, June 2002:

1. 40% of all workers in L.A. County (L.A. County has 10 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This was because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3's of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

5. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in L.A. are Spanish speaking.

10. In L.A.County 5.1 million people speak English. 3.9 million speak Spanish (10.2 million people in L.A.County).

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration. According to Professor Donald Huddle at Rice University, the cost of illegal immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997 was a NET (after subtracting taxes immigrants pay) $70 BILLION a year.

*sigh*

Sometimes I feel like trying to get our politicians to do anything about it is like beating a dead horse...

The L.A. Times? Are you sure about that? Wow...

Hey, Brooke, keep it up. I'm currently engaged in a "Nag-a-thon," where I make up a short (but to the point) e-mail to the president and my legislators (all disgustingly leftist).

I'm beginning to use words that have some meaning to them, like "legacy" for the president, and "blame" for the legislators; you know, "...when there is another attack on this country and anyone who crossed the border is found to be involved, your legacy will suffer" (or "the finger of blame will be pointed straight at you").

I'm also getting a little satisfaction out of mentioning "third party," because even though the Republicrats (the fused political entity of two sides of the same coin represented by the Republicans and Democrats) have erected massive barriers to any political competition from another party, it can be done if we, the "little people," get pissed enough. I think we are approaching the critical mass of "pissed" now, so much so that if a candidate were to take something like the top three concerns that a lot of us have been voicing (Islam, borders, and the increasing involvement of Hezbollah in South America and the gangs there), I really think he'd have a shot at the Oval Office.

We've got three years, if we want to get a politician to "do something" about these problems. Of course, three years is a lot of time for Bush to ignore Islam and to push his One World dream, but if we can use some Fabian tactics, maybe the problem will grow slowly enough to let us find someone before it's too late.
