In the mid 1960s when my family and I immigrated. I was asked to show my “green card” before enrolling in school. My family and I didn’t mind, we were proud to show off our legal status,(after years of waiting by the Mexican border to enter legally), we were proud of that hard earned green card. Thank goodness in those days California upheld its laws.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t oppose immigration, “legal” being the key word. In present day California, our roads, schools, hospitals, jails and public services are choked and falling apart. As citizens and/or legal immigrants we cannot continue on this path, unless our goal is to become yet another third world country.

I’m disheartened by the protests and people waving “Mexican and foreign flags” this past week. These ungrateful people are showing us their “true colors”. America has given them an “inch” and they are demanding the whole mile.

Here is an example of the “division” we’re facing in our country today: Article today in AOL News about Mr. Tom Stumpf, Principal of Skyline High School in Longmont, Colorado. Who is suspending several of his students for waiving our American flag in his high school premises.

Does Mr. Stumpf mean that his foreign students can bring Mexican flags on his campus but his American students can’t bring their American flags and (heaven forbid) wave them? Mr. Stumpf said that, “when it involves the American flag and its abuse in vilifying other people, we simply
will not tolerate it. They were using the symbol derisively as misguided patriotism”.

I have a question for the Mr. Stumpfs of our nation who share his beliefs: Why can illegals wave their flags in our noses? Why can they have all of our rights to social services, rights to freedom of speech, but when our “legal citizens” choose to wave our flag, then that’s “vilifying other people”?

Sadly, the Mr. Stumpfs of our nation are the reason why so many “pro-illegal mmigration” supporters have shown us law abiding citizens such a lack of respect this last week by waiving their foreign flags in front of our noses. We Americans are being vilified!

People like Mr. Stumpf are encouraging disrepect to our nation, values,laws and flag.

I am proud to be a tax paying, law abiding American citizen. We must remember that United we Stand, but Devided we Fall!

God Bless America!

    I just saw on the news that a new effort is being made to give college courses to ILLEGALS…..free. I am FUMING…..and I’m going to demand that Penn State admit ME for free. Think I will go to jail? YES>..because I was born here and have always wanted to go to college but couldn’t afford to…even working two jobs.
    I want to ask….HOW can an illegal contribute money to our society when IF he/she does, they’d be known to be here illegally?!
    I think it’s time for Americans(legal ones) to stand up….and fight for ENGLISH FIRST>….and LIMITED legal immigration. We canNOT survive as a country letting millions of people into this country, paying their way, letting them have their babies free, and collect money my dead veteran father NEVER got to receive. I am sick to death with all this sympathy for these illegals….many of who are NOT hispanic in origin.
    First….we send American manufacturers to Mexico…..and now we let them come here to take our jobs inside the USA> Why does the Mexican government NOT take care of their own. Are these hispanics who LOVE their Mexico SO much….cowards to not fight for reform in their OWN country that they pride. NO>…they’d rather get fringe benefits while working for cheap labor from the tight gringos they work for. I am mad as hell….and demanding my politicians in Pennsylvania to tightly restict the numbers of immigrants period. We MUST settle the problems we have now….and not ADD to them. May God bless America…..and WAVE that USA flag proudly. MANY Americans died for the right….don’t let someone tell you you cannot wear patriotic items. This is America damit! Be brave…wear the colors….and wave the flag.
