The evening news last night showed something that nearly made me spit out my Coke laughing. A man, who identified himself on camera as an illegal immigrant made the statement “We’re tired of being treated like second class citizens.”
Now, let’s break this down for those of you who don’t understand why I think this is really funny. There’s just so much wrong with this whole thing.
- You’re a criminal. You just admitted to breaking the law on camera and that you knew it was a crime.
- YOU ARE NOT A CITIZEN. Webster’s defines citizen as “a native or naturalized member of a state or nation who owes allegiance to its government and is entitled to its protection.” You are none of those things. You’re not even supposed to be here.
- Your claim of second class is spurious at best. You pay no taxes, yet you leech off the system. And it’s awfully hard to be a second class member of a group you don’t even belong to.
