Why Americans Hate This “Immigration” Debate

By Aussiegirl

As always, Herb Meyer has a way of getting to the heart of the matter - these people are not behaving like IMMIGRANTS! They are not assimilating or learning our language and instead, make demands that we accomodate them. They are not playing by the rules that all other immigrants have played by for a hundred years and more. And the politicians are proposing that we abolish the rules entirely, and give them special privileges to reward them for their illegal and uncooperative behavior.

The American Thinker

One of the most striking features of the immigration debate now raging in Washington is that none of the Democratic or Republican proposals seem to hold any appeal for ordinary Americans—which is why this debate is generating so much frustration among voters that no matter which proposal Congress adopts, the issue itself threatens to shatter both parties’ bases and dominate the November elections.

Simply put, the debate in Washington isn’t about “immigration” at all – and that’s the problem.

[...] Until our elected officials come to grips with the real issue that’s troubling ordinary Americans – not a growing population of foreigners among us, but rather a growing population of foreigners among us who aren’t behaving like immigrants – public frustration will grow no matter what bill Congress passes in the coming weeks. It could lead to the kind of political explosion that none of us really wants.
