“Another Word on Illegal Immigration,” by Andrew J. Schatkin

My dear friends and fellow thinkers and readers, I bid and ask you to join with me in another adventure of intellectual discovery where those who may wish to engage in critical thinking and do not engage in and accept media lies falsehoods and political code words and hype can join in the effort to gain truth and facts amid the barrage of corruption and virtual darkness we are confronted with and befuddled and made effective fools of. I welcome you in this quest and task of attaining and coming to know and grasp intellectual honesty and honest discernment Join with me in this voyage of discovery to get at and find what is valid and authentic in this world of confusion and do come with me in tearing apart the curtain of darkness that hides from us what is truth and facts.

Fellow thinkers I have previously spoken and discussed on these pages the matter of immigration or to be more pointed and specific the matter of illegal immigration. The left labels these people “undocumented immigrants.” ‘Undocumented’ is a political code word to excuse or successfully evade the true and actual illegal status of these persons who know they are coming here illegally and then in an act of gross manipulation claim the right to be here and make use of our medical, employment, and education resources. In doing this, they are in fact seeking to lie and manipulate their way in our system. If I do not pay my taxes, my house and bank account can and will be seized by the IRS and if I do not come to work it is likely I will be discharged. Every illegal action has a consequence and coming here in violation of our laws should be addressed by some sort of legal action even to the extent of deportation.

Today, I wish to speak about and discuss a more recent event on the issue of illegal immigration. House Democrats recently voted in favor of offering stimulus payments to unauthorized immigrants despite Republican opposition to strike the provision from the latest 3 trillion coronavirus relief bill. The so-called Heroes Act, which passed the house a few days ago, would make taxpaying immigrants eligible for federal stimulus funds regardless of their legal status.

Under the Cares Act, only immigrants with social security numbers were able to receive payments, meaning essentially with legal status. Democrats argued that failing to offer this form of financial aid to undocumented people was wrong since these immigrants provide essential services including farm workers and in the service sector.

I find giving these funds to those here illegally and in defiance of our legal system an insult and in defiance of the hard working legal immigrants who need those positions and our many American citizens in dire poverty and suffering in poverty who need and should be entitled to those jobs and have the opportunity to get paying work they so desperately need.

Illegality should not be rewarded. A person who comes here illegally in manipulation of our laws and system is and does not deserve this money and these funds. I am a Christian and have great concern for the elimination of economic inequality; but in the exercise of intellectual honesty, I cannot agree and condone this giveaway to persons who are acting in defiance of our entire system of law. I do have charity and concern for these persons illegally here; but it is our citizens who need this help and with whom we should be and have our first and only concern, not those who lie and manipulate their way into our system. There is no answer and there is no argument to what I say, which stems from intellectual honesty and a true assessment of all the facts as they stand.
