We are appalled

People have difficulty with their arguments when backing the illegal immigration issue.

They base their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants.

We all agree America is made up of immigrants, both legal and documented. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no free medical and no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and crafts they had brought with them for a future of prosperity.

Documented legal immigrants would never dream of picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were.

These legal immigrants truly know what it means to become an American.

They learned the English language and wanted to assimilate into the society of their adopted country.

They are appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign flags and not wanting to speak our language or do not want to assimilate into our society.

My family is appalled. I am a second-generation legal immigrant. My wife is a first-generation legal immigrant. This new kind of immigrant wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules. They do not want to pay for them.

They use our system for welfare, for free medical and free schooling without assimilating into the American culture and society.

Today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant. They are illegal.

Today's American is not a racist for wanting people who come across our borders to do so legally.
