    Default New Immigrant

    A Somali arrives in Minneapolis as a new immigrant to the
    United States. He stops the first person he sees walking
    down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for
    letting me in this country, and giving me housing, food
    stamps, free medical care and free education!"

    But the passerby says "You are mistaken, I am Mexican".

    The man goes on and encounters another passerby.
    "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in
    America!" The person says "I no American, I Vietnamese."

    The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees
    he stops, shakes his hand and says "Thank you for the
    wonderful America!" That person puts up his hand and
    says "I am from Middle East, I am not an American!"

    He finally sees a nice lady and asks suspiciously, "Are
    you an American?" She says, "No, I am from Russia!"
    So he is puzzled, and asks her, "Where are all the
    Americans?" The Russian lady looks at her watch, shrugs,
    and says... "Probably at work...."

    And really hard at it, I see! LOL!

    Having posted that, I should say that I don't dislike immigrants. My wife is not an American citizen, so people send me this stuff. This one struck me as funny (and a little true), though I know a lot of really hard working immigrants- including my wife. We have a lot of Mexican and Russian immigrants around here. You get some really great ones, and some that should have targets painted on them dureing hunting season- sort of like US.

    I dont want to start an argument on symantics or politics but .. question..

    are your wife and neighbors immigrants? or illegal aliens?

    Somewhere allong the line those two have been blurred and people have started using one for the other.


    (slightly touchy subject fo rme.. I used to live in the southwest and only gun that has ever been pulled on me was from an Illegal Alien..)

    An even more touchy subject for my wife! She's legal, and she really dislikes the illigal community, as well as the legals who only mooch or get involved in organized crime and gangs.

    My biggest problem is with a congress that treats them as the next big voting block to pander to- or, as Prince Ted of Chappaquidock said, "the new Civil Rights Movement." Get rid of this bunch, we could solve immigration problems and a whole lot more. Term limmits is synonomous with idiocy limmitations. Maybe we could replace McCain with an immigrant...

    Now, see what you started?

    well I am inherantly evil so....

    infact.. i believe in very few issues as being truely black and white.. but what part of "ILLEGAL alien" is so hard to understand?

    I like the "We are not Illegal" signs... Umm... yes.. actually you are...

    I have no problem with people wanting to come to the USA for whatever reason as long as it is not to increese the crime rate...

    as long as it is done legally.. ...

    If they came here illigally, they have already increased the crime rate!

    The politicians just don't seem to understand that one.
