The Immigration and Nationality Act, or INA, was created in 1952. Before the INA, a variety of statutes governed immigration law but were not organized in one location. The McCarran-Walter bill of 1952, Public Law No. 82-414, collected and codified many existing provisions and reorganized the structure of immigration law. The Act has been amended many times over the years, but is still the basic body of immigration law.
One notion that must be adhered to above all of the rest is that I or anyone else here at The Contemplative Thinker has any disrespect, disenchantment, or disservice with the majority of illegal aliens that are in the United States of America. Born and raised in Southern California one would be completely antisocial not to have many, many Latino amigos.
It is worthy of noting that at one time I too was an illegal immigrant in a foreign country; albeit, I didn’t intentionally go and break their law of the land, or travel to that nation without proper immigration documents – which I hope you will appreciate saved my rear in the end.
Therefore it is with compassion, understanding, and the overall sense of wanting to make a better society that I have such a passion with this issue. In addition, I would not be telling the truth if there were some attitudes I don’t like or public policy decisions being made here in the USA. The disrespect we are shown by our own elected officials especially the arrogant African-American who resides in a White House and collects a salary of which I am a part of supplying for this egomaniac is so out of control.
What I am trying to get at is person to person there is not any degree of a problem that I have with you – the illegal immigrant. You will no doubt notice that I do not use such words as undocumented, irregular, unauthorized, or any other word than illegal. This exists simply because you have broken a law to gain entrance into a place that has laws that prohibit it.
Subsequently, most of your parents, aunties, uncles, and other relatives that are here – also illegally – are not assisting you and/or your future, but who knows right? I do not like the expression “through no fault of their own” simply because I feel that is a politically correct way of identifying a person’s interests.
Let’s look at it this way – if you are here in the USA illegally by no fault of your own – then by reason or law of cause and effect someone must be at fault. If not you then let’s say it is your parents fault. Do you feel as though they should be fined? Or do you feel as though they too should get a free-pass into a sovereign nation that has laws that prohibit such selfish conduct.
Please hear me out here – the reason I allude to the act of selfish conduct is simply because in a nation that has experienced more civil rights conventions than perhaps every other part of the world combined – has anyone thought if even for a nanosecond about the civil and/or human rights of those who were born, raised, experienced their first love, car, prom, varsity game, lover, cheerleader, fight, or enlisting into the armed forces to defend this nation and the people who live in it.
From the very founding of this nation – the United States of America – and even prior to that occasion, the founders had set laws against the very illegal immigration that is occurring now. What has got to be the quintessential rub in the face is in the notion of special interest groups such as the National Council of La Raza, MALDEF, with the National Caucus of Hispanic Leaders, the Congressional Black Caucus, NAACP, as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Enough for now; however, we believe that there is enough rubbish (human excrement, caca) that is going on as far as demands with attitudes, “Now Show Me Your Papers” it is vitally important to the success of our proposed immigration reform that we get along, as we should.
