Orange County California Newspaper

This is a very good letter to the editor. This woman made some good points.
For some reason, people have difficulty structuring their arguments w hen arguing against supporting the currently proposed immigration revisions. This lady made the argument pretty simple. NOT printed in the Orange County Paper..................

Newspapers simply won't publish letters to the editor which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or which does not agree with the philosophy they're pushing on the public. This woman wrote a great letter to the editor that should have been published; but, with your help it will get published via cyberspace!

From: 'David LaBonte'
My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to 'print' it myself by sending it out on the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in the Orange County Register:

Dear Editor:

So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren't being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented . Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and suppor t their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to pr otect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany, Italy, France and Japan. None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and th e Emperor of Japan. They were defending the United States of America as one people.

When we liberated France, no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German American or the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.

And here we are in 2008 with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges, only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I' m sorry, that's not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900's deserve better than that for all the toil , hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.

And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn't start talking about dismantling the UNITED STATES just yet.

I sincerely hope this letter gets read by millions of people all across the nation!!

It isn't harsh enough , Americans have got to be careful now .
You either sound like a Patriot no one listens to ,or they label you as a fascist.
In the last three yeas it isn't even the illegal pushing for rights and entitlements anymore ,they demand them ,even over the ones you have as a citizen.
Sense the Venezuelan Dictator Chavez has emerged as a leader preaching the dominance and colonization of America, a new violent more organized effort has emerged. Our Border Patrol says it isn't the poor farm worker anymore , it is armed insergants intent on planting themselves into all walks of our society.
Here they change our ways and laws under the shadow of the protection programs set up for their so called nationality. They urge those here now to have children born here as Americans ,but raise them in the beliefs and goals of what they wish to archive. Guys i really wish i could get across to you what i have seen and heard in the city where my cousin was murdered. Whites live in total fear ,LE is useless from fear of reprisal , white women are forced to remain silent and to conform . White girls cant go through school without all but being forced to date one of these. I will make this effort ,if you do not believe me i will pay for you to come see this first hand ,and YOU WILL leave in a different light ,shocked. Things now coming out in that murder point to an old woman who didn't conform ,who's daughter was forced into submission , silence ,and even her daughter of 16 is now pregnant in what elsewhere would be called rape. She is afraid and is told to have the child or else , my cousin and her tried to sneak out and run under the cover of night.
They were stopped ,and forced to return ,and my cousin was murdered as a show of force and to shut her up.
It was no robbery ,that was for show on the camera , go to Murders of convenience store clerks at Allsups NM in your search engines and tell me what you think. It was for money in forcing the family to file damages and the things i said above . Look at the case in Hobbs ,all over the state and tell me what you see in common here.
Dont think the FBI isn't watching this , the trial is on going right now but follow that story in lovington , i cant post what we have right now but it is horrifying we have let this go this far.
PLEASE keep silent about what you think ,PLEASE , what you see is nothing to what is coming out in this. My wife and i talked about this all weekend , she is angry ,afraid ,crys ,and cant sleep.
We hear things from other people over there i wish i could just go tell the police ,and i so pray they already know .
My cousin we know wrote something some where telling what was really going on ,she wasn't stupid ,she knew she was marked , and we know something big , and the law suite being opened on Allsups is bogus and a lie.
Someone cought on to our snoopeing and it was quickly moved to Santa Fe , i swear guys some one over there in the family isn't telling the truth at all.
And the family members involved are shunning us or wanting us to come have a serious talk with them , they are not acting innocent.
