Default bulletin on Myspace-Illegal immigration put into simple terms

This kinda upset me comin from one of my really good friends (but of coarse she is white)..........





This is a great analogy!

Illegal immigration put into simple terms:

A lady wrote the best letter in the Editorials in ages!!! It explains
things better than all the baloney you hear on TV.

Her point:

Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country
protesting the fact that Congress is finally addressing the issue of illegal
immigration.

Certain people are angry that the US might protect its own borders,
might make it harder to sneak into this country and, once here, to stay
indefinitely.

Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.
Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave.

But I say, "No! I like it here. It's better than my house. I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).

According to the protesters:

You are Required to let me stay in your house
You are Required to feed me
You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan
You are Required to Educate my kids
You are Required to Provide other benefits to me & to my family
(my husband will do all of your yard work because he is also
hard-working and honest, except for that breaking in part).

If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends
who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.
It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and
I'm just trying to better myself. I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except
for well, you know, I did break into your house And what a deal it is for me!!!

I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my
keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold,
uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.

Oh yeah, I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE!!! so you can communicate
with me.

Why can't people see how ridiculous this is?! Only in America ... If you agree, pass it on (in English ). Share it if you see the value of it.

If not, blow it off... along with your future Social Security funds, and a lot of other things.

pretty interesting take, but the whole analogy is taken out of perspective.
and shouldnt be compared to someone breaking an entry..

Yea? Sounds interesting.. funny though since this "analogy" just now pops up.. If these people believe that so much why don't they practice it and give back the "house" they originally "stole" from the native peoples of this land? Hypocrites, I tell ya.. I don't hear none of the white people in my neighborhood speaking Lakota or Ojibwe..

I recommend you to send this:

http://www.time.com/time/nation/arti...xid=rss-nation

And that's from Time Magazine. It would shut her up unless she says it's a liberal media which is bs bc they posted many articles and cover stories about Bill Clinton and Monica when that whole scandal went down and it went over a year. I know bc I have all the issues. LOL.

I completely understand why some are upset, they see people who are here illegally demanding things and waving a foreign (Mexican) flag. I cant imagine that many here would support illegal Guatemalans in Mexico demanding things and waving their flag. The marches were a bad idea, that (I believe) ended up harming the undocumented workers

With that being said, it's a poor/idiotic analogy, for many reasons. The overwhelming majority of undocumented workers aren't looking to have others support them.
