Is There No Sense of Security Anymore?

Would you ever leave the front door of your own home wide open whenever you left? Would you ever allow anyone at any time to come in at their own leisure and help themselves to your belongings, all for free, simply because they could? Well, without any borders or security for those borders, America is pretty much just that: a house with the front door left wide open. And do you want to know the worst part? The very people who are supposed to protect America by closing and locking this metaphorical front door are the ones who have taken the key and thrown it away!

What gives some random person the right to invade our country just because they aren’t satisfied with theirs? Look at it this way: you work a full time job (easily at least forty hours a week), and the only thing you like about that job is your big fat paycheck at the end of the month. Now, you’ll notice that all of your paychecks have a bunch of tax payments taken out of it by the government. Now, some of it does go towards government business, but do you know where a far-too-big portion of it goes? It goes to supporting illegal aliens who are basically living here for free.

That’s right, money from your hard-earned paychecks goes to supporting a whole lot of random people you’ve never seen before in your life. And why? Because they left their own country, came here illegally (meaning they aren’t even citizens), and so we are obligated to bend over backwards for them? Do you see any logic in that? Yeah, neither do I.

Now, there are those who say that illegal immigrants should be taken care of as if they were citizens. If you are one of those people, then all my respect to you. But I still think we should stop illegal immigration right now.
