    I can't beleive this one....

    I just wanted to share this.

    I sent a little analogy of what illegal immigration is like to my church elder, he's a friend. He forwarded it to the whole church and now he's in big trouble. I don't get it. Here's the email he sent:
    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, "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 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.
    All the immigrants I talked to say they find nothing offensive in this. But we have a Spanish speaking church in our churches basement and they are all offended.

    What I say is, if your not doing those things in the letter, then it's not talking about you and you have no reason to be offended. If you are doing the things in the letter then you have no right to be offended because it's true and what your doing is wrong.

    Illegals holler because they know that what they have done is wrong. They think they can justify it by screaming louder than we do, hoping we'll give up the fight. It ain't going to happen.

    Bryan, I would guess that your church provides free use of that space to the Spanish speaking conregation, and considering their reaction, I can guess that some of them are illegal and that those who are not believe being illegally here is ok!??

    Bryan, your churches elders need to be questioned on WHY these people are offended. Are they aiding and abetting? The email said NOTHING about nationality, nor about which language the character in the ficticious email spoke, so why the huge deal about being offended?

    Excellent points AmericanElizabeth. The only people who would be offended are the ones guilty of said infractions.



    Bryan-Do you really have illegal aliens out in Hawaii?



    Head 'em up,move 'em out Rawhide!

    I forgot to change my BIO, we've moved to Wisconsin.


    What really bothers me is that 2 of the people that seem most angry about it are both legal, so I'd really like to know what their problem is. Also, I don't know if any of the members of the Hispanic church are illegal, but I do know they all have good jobs and give to the church generously so I think there all legal. But I'm also sure most of them know illegals, but as so called Christians, they should not it's not right to break the law and have no right to find the letter offensive.

    I shared the email with many immigrants and none were offended. In fact every immigrant I've talked to are pissed about this whole illegal thing, like my wife feels, if they went through the proper process then why can't everyone else?

    My wife is an immigrant, a Filipino. She's had 2 of her relatives ask her for help to be here illegally. They are having a tough time back home, but she still said NO.

    My wife just passed her interview with the INS and now all she has left to do is take the oath and she'll be a citizen.

    If she can do it, so can everyone else. We live paycheck to paycheck, we're not rich, but we still found the money. I hear this talk about how it's so expensive to become a citizen. That's a bunch of crap, you don't need to be a citizen to be here, just a legal resident and that's very affordable for anyone.

    This is interesting, I lost my job 5 years ago. That's what got us to Hawaii. My wife got her masters in teaching in the Philippines and was able to get a teaching job there. So hows that, an immigrant supporting a citizen instead of the other way around!

    We had a child in 2004. That's why we moved here this year, so our daughter could be closer to my family in Michigan. My wife is still teaching, I'm a stay at home dad until our youngest goes to school at 5. Our youngest is due in November.

    I'm changing my BIO now.

    How?????? How did they get across that "border"????

    Well, I suppose that it was cheaper to get their passport and fly in than to pay a smuggler to bring them into the mainland![/quote]
