Nativism

Anti-illegal aliens is not the same thing as anti-immigration. Some people believe that those of us who want folks to enter our borders legally are anti all immigration and our writing is ‘racially charged nativist rhetoric’. That is completely wrong.

Strictly speaking, the term ‘nativism’ distinguishes between Americans who were born in the United States, and those who have immigrated themselves – ‘first generation’ immigrants … but nativism has become a general term for ‘opposition to immigration’. I dare say there are only a handfull of Americans who want immigration stopped. For most of us, we simply want people to come here legally.

A recent ‘Comprehensive Survey and Analysis‘ on the public’s view of immigration states, “… the public wants the U.S. government to intensify its efforts to enforce current immigration laws”. We just want the laws enforced, is that too much to ask?

The real problem is with Americans who want anybody and everybody to ‘come to America’, no strings attached. No matter who you are, where you are from, what you legal status, what your legal history, what organizations you have associated with … just come on in. That is what we are against.

Take the two operators of the Great Wall Chinese Super Buffet in Springfield pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to hiring and harboring illegal aliens from Mexico and China. None of the illegals appear on Great Wall’s employee roster, they were hired without any paperwork and paid in cash, and Chen picked them up in her van each morning to take them to the 3130 S. Glenstone Ave. restaurant, where they worked about 12 hours a day, seven days a week.

That is equal to slavery. Is that what people want? Not those of use who are against illegal entry into our country. This type of thing happens because folks are here illegally.

Zhang and Chen each face up to 10 years and six months in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $268,000, according to federal sentencing guidelines.By pleading guilty, Zhang and Chen admitted they hired and harbored employees who they knew were illegal aliens at various times during 2006. …

Brian Wilburn, a member of the newly formed Springfield chapter of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, said, “It’s our belief there are others where illegals are staying en masse.” source

Wouldn’t it be much better for these folks to come here legally, have proper identification, be able to get legal jobs with protection under US law on hours worked and wages paid? That is what we want.
