Another sad example showing how illegal aliens who swarm into this country are just here to grab whatever our derelict government will give them or let them take....
Six undocumented Mexican immigrants were arrested today by U.S. Border Patrol agents at Qualcomm Stadium, after a report that they were stealing food and water meant for evacuees, according to spokesman Damon Foreman.
San Diego police responded to a call about alleged theft from the evacuation center and encountered six people in a van who didn't speak English and didn't have California driver's licenses, Foreman said.
I know what you people are going to say before you say it....
"But Ed, how do you know that they weren't refugees from the fire, and just needed food and water for their displaced families?"
Because when the police stopped their van crammed full of goods, they admitted that they were illegal aliens and had stolen all the stuff. Happy?
"But Ed, you can't just arbitrarily judge people based on their immigration status without knowing their circumstances."
Sure I can. They are criminals who've demonstrated a complete disregard for our laws by sneaking in here. A criminal is a criminal. How is stealing relief supplies from victims of the fires that much different than stealing fabulous cash and prizes from the American taxpayer in the form of free aid, medical services, and education?
"But Ed, just like during Katrina, the assumption is that if you are white then you are just providing for your family and not stealing, but if you are dark-skinned, you are a criminal looter." I resent the accusation of racism. When a dude pushes a grocery cart full of booze, cigarettes, and color TV's through the flood waters, he's not feeding his family, I don't care what color his skin is. And when a gang of six dudes sneak supplies intended for people at the shelter out the back door into a van, I don't care what color their skin is, they're theives. In this case, but for the gutless delinquency of our government's not guarding the border, we wouldn't be reading this story at all.
But Ed, this is a simple theft issue, not an immigration issue. Keep swinging dumb reader...you can foul as many off as you like. It IS an immigration issue, NOT a theft issue, just as an unlicensed driver causing a wreck IS an unlicensed driver issue and NOT a wreckless driving issue....but for the "unlicensed" status of the theives, the relief supplies would never have been stolen.
So if you're planning on getting on here and calling me a racist, save it. Calling me a racist because I criticized the behavior of somebody who happens to be a minority is debate strategy #1 for liberals, but it's also lazy, weak, and intellectually dishonest. Argue the benefits vs. costs of illegal aliens if you want, but don't inject race where it's not an issue.
