Legal Immigrants vs Illegal Immigrants

The following is the text from a letter that I'm sending to each of my congressional representatives.  I'm also sending copies the letter to my family and friends.  And I encurage all who agree with my position to do the same:

"In regards to the government’s plan to enact an immigration reform bill, I am sending you this letter on behalf of my sister in-law. Hye Kyung Kang, a South Korean Native.

Her sister (my wife), Hye Jung Williams’ petition (USCIS Form I-130/Immigrant Petition for a Relative) for her to emigrate from South Korea to this country has been approved with a Category F4 priority date of May 21, 2005.  Please see enclosure 1.  She is now on a visa waiting list to join us here in Virginia.  However, according to the Visa Bulletin at enclosure 2, visas are currently being processed for Category F4-approved Immigrants with priority dates on or before April 22, 2001.  She has now been on the waiting nearly eight years; and at the current rate of visas issued, it will be another five years before one is issued to her.

And that’s OK; providing that not even one undocumented alien who violated this nation’s law by illegally entering this country or overstaying a legally-issued tourist or work visa is issued a Green Card before all of those with an approved Form I-130.  That issue is the urgency that prompted me to write this letter.  I’m sure that not only my wife and I, but every American Naturalized Citizen with an approved Form I-30 for a family member to immigrate here would consider that unimaginable, unconscionable and unacceptable Therefore, I cannot imagine that you and your congressional colleagues would disagree that it is indisputably your responsibility and duty to ensure that never happen.  It would also be unimaginable, unconscionable and unacceptable if you and your congressional colleagues would allow illegals to remain in this country while they are awaiting issue of a Green Card under a so-called ‘Path-to-Citizenship Program’, unless however, you are willing to make the following two exceptions for those who chose to abide by our immigration law, and already have approved Forms I-130:

 

    First  Include in the reform bill an article that would allow them to join their sponsor/benefactor here under an expedited temporary or extended tourist or immigration visa, pending final approval of a permanent immigration visa and Green Card. Such an article would negate or mitigate the unjust and unfair advantage illegals already have over them just by being allowed to stay here enjoying the benefit of employment and the companionship of family members and friends.  They have no approved benefactor/sponsor; and many have become financial and lawless burdens to our cities and states.

    Second: Also include in the bill, authorization for them to seek employment while waiting for their permanent immigration visa and green card.

Notwithstanding the advantage illegal immigrants irrefutably urrently have over law abiding immigrants discussed above, it is absolutely unimaginable and unconscionable that neither President Obama, nor any congressional official have even brought into the discussion a plan to negate or mitigate the unjust and unfair advantage illegals already enjoy over them, by rewarding them for patiently waiting to legally enter this country.  Yet, all the talk is about giving illegals “A Path to Citizenship?”  It makes one wonder what has happened to integrity, logical thinking, common sense and empathy among our leaders.  However, if deportation of illegals back to their country is going to be a requirement for them to seek citizenship at the back of the line of those for which Forms I-130 are awaiting approval, not those that have been approved, as with the case of my sister in-law; then there would be no need or justification to include in the reform bill the two exceptions discussed above.

I am also sending this letter to President Obama, Virginia Senators, TV networks and The Daily Press.  It will also appear as a blog on the major social networks.  This is without question an issue deserving nationwide priority, publicity, and positive concerted action.  I have no doubt that all naturalized citizens across this country who have submitted Forms I-130 for family members to immigrate here are already angry, disgusted and frustrated with our leaders for allowing this undocumented immigrant mess to occur again.  And I’m sure that all other citizens of integrity, empathy and non-biased political views support them.  Remember the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986?  It was supposed to be a-one-time deal that granted legal status to about three million illegal immigrants.  However, because border security has not been adequately upgraded and enforced as mandated in that reform act, here we go again, only this time far worse than before! The bottom line is that no legislation should be enacted that would give illegal immigrants a single advantage over those for whom their naturalized family member citizens have submitted Forms I-130.

Since I have not engaged in any subjective or political rhetoric in stating and defending my position on this matter, I certainly deserve and expect no less of a response from anyone who choose to disagree.

Anything & anyone deemed to be Legal is welcome in my Country!

Tina Felder, I briefly refused to dignify your vicious/hostile comment with a response; but since you chose to violate the most important and respected protocol criterion of debate by engaging in personal vicious rhetoric, I feel obligated to respond: How dare you insult my Korean wife of 35 years, who stood-by me and made many sacrifices on my behalf, and on behalf of this nation during my 30-year Military/Army career!! My wife has legally applied for her sister to immigrate and live with us. And just for your information, her sister is 62-years old and don’t need a job, or any government benefit, because we can afford to, and will take care of all her needs!!! You chose to deviate from the specific issue of whether aliens who are here illegally should be given any preference over those who chose to come legally! That was the sole purpose of my blog; and you failed to answer that question. You will not hear anything more from me on your response; but I’m sure you’ll be blasted by other sane well-meaning bloggers for your mean-spirited comments!!

Everyone keeps talking about guns. They're after the country and our representation is ignoring that fact. Guns are only the first step.

Great point, Paul Z.   I certainly feel like we've been "invaded".   Time to repel the invasion by deporting them to their homelands.

Wish we had Legislators who would stand up for our laws and the citizens who put them in office.

I hope everyone will remember the names of the political traitors, both parties, who took a stand FOR Illegal Aliens (foreign citizens) and AGAINST American citizens and our laws in the upcoming elections.   Here are a few Democrats who call themselves Republicans who need to be kicked out of office:

- John McCain, we fondly call him "Juan" McCain for his ILLEGAL Alien support

- Marco Rubio, chooses Illegals because his parents & family are from Communist Cuba

- Lindsey Graham, blithering idiot from SC who needs to spend time along our Southern border

- Jeff Flake, obviously a brain-dead Liberal in Republican clothing

- Eric Cantor, just plain deaf to American citizens calling for deportation & blind to our laws

As per OUR Constitution regarding ("immigration"), Congress has the responsibility to provide a uniform rule of naturalization, but they have the responsibility to repel invasions.  20 Million people ILLEGALLY entering OUR country, taking our taxpayer's money in welfare, crime, health care, education, and special privleges, certainly constitutes an Invasion. 

That is their main priority but they refuse to enforce it, instead, constantly granting Amnesties for political gain.  It is impeachable because they are sworn to uphold OUR Constitution, but do NOT!

Lewana -

Excellent post & exactly what our dumb-ass, blind Legislators like Juan McCain need to hear.

I was thrilled to see residents of Arizona standing up to Juan McCain & telling him THEIR opinion of ILLEGAL ALIENS.    Every bleeding heart politician in Washington, including Obama, needs to hear what THE PEOPLE think, what they are going through with Illegals & the fact that we are SICK of supporting them!

DEPORT THEM, DON'T SUPPORT THEM!

The problem is that the American people are the only ones who want this problem solved.  The GOP, the DemonRat Party, businesses, illegal alien lobbyists, the UN, globalists, drug lored, the Mexican government, and smugglers want the problem to remain.  Even though the American people still give far more money to the ruling class, we still can't buy the degree of influence of these groups.

Comment by Tina Fiedler on March 4, 2013 at 8:25pm

Ummm, I'm sorry, but I don't want your damn sister-in-law, OK?

 

That's the game all of them play, don't you get it?  She needs to stay right where she is.  We need to send most of them home.  Even the LEGAL ones are taking OUR jobs!

   You MUST understand , the progressives in our government could not care less about fairness , their ONLY motivation is to bring down the nation as a constitutional republic and make it a communist or at the very least a socialist banana republic to atone for what their perceive as sins from our past .

Comment by Lewana Hinton on March 4, 2013 at 3:06pm

Neal, all the social services you've mentioned (free AHCCCS health insurance, welfare, food stamps, rent & utility assistance, etc) the illegals here in AZ are already getting. Many have several Social Security Numbers, & are drawing SS benefits already. I keep wondering what will happen to the REAL people these numbers belong to, when they retire & find out their benefits have already been used. AZ is first in the nation for Identify Theft. It's a BIG problem here. All the bleeding heart liberals need to step up & pay for these illegals, & have their identities stolen, then maybe they won't be so fast to endorse them. They came here illegally, have protested at our capital & physically stomped on the American flag (shich they had thrown down on the ground). We don't owe them anything. And to make it all even worse, John McCain is fighting for them to be made legal, ahead of all those who filed the legal way & are still waiting to be approved. They refuse to learn our language, but want our money, & are getting it. We know they are voting, even though they aren't citizens. If we want foreigners to decide our laws, then why don't we just send all of our mail-in ballots to the Middle East, & Russia, and everyone else who hates us. That's what's happening when these illegals from Mexico are voting. People who favor the illegals, say families are being kept apart, but you know what, if these people had stayed in their own country, then their families would still be together.
