Possibly offensive to some. Immigration rant.

LOS ANGELES - Tens of thousands of immigrant rights advocates from across Southern California marched Saturday in protest of federal legislation that would build more walls along the U.S.-Mexico border and make helping illegal immigrants a crime.
Now let me get this straight. People are marching because we are trying to prevent ILLEGAL immigrants. It's BAD because we are trying to uphold the law?! Because we should let EVERYONE into this country, no papers, nothing to say who you are or why you're here. Am I the ONLY one that see's this as a problem? You don't see marches going on because they're trying to uphold the law saying that armed robbery is a bad thing, do you? Now I have NO problem with people immigrating to this country. But for fucks sake people, do it legally. It's not that hard to get into America. Try becoming a citizen of the UK. YOU CAN'T! You can get a long term visa, but you can't actually become a citizen of the UK if you're not born there. You've got to work for what you want. You want to come to America? Learn some fucking English and come over legally. Sure it will take a little longer, but at least you'd have some fucking dignity and respect. America can't provide for the actual citizens it has now. We don't need a bunch of illegal immigrants getting a free ride and not doing a damn thing for it. Think I'm blowing it out of proportion? Go to Wenatchee. 80% of the population is Mexican, and I would bet that 1/2 of those are here illegally. You find most of them have huge families that they can't provide for. Now not all are like this. I realize that there are many people out there that have moved to this country from Mexico and they're doing everything correctly or most things correctly anyway. I salute them for rising above the others.

However, in my life time I have met two Mexican males that were nice, and didn't slobber all over me/paw me/make lewd comments towards me. It's shit like this that gives me the opinions that I have about certain types of people.

I base my opinions on life experiences and what I know. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but c'mon. This is just annoying.
