Aren’t you glad that Mexican illegal immigrants are doing jobs that “Americans won’t do” like washing dishes and cooking food in restaurants, cleaning your houses, and watching your kids for $7/hour? I mean, what’s a little swine flu when we’re talking about saving a nickel on a hamburger or maid service?
Our open borders, particularly to the Third World, means long eradicated third world diseases, third world habits of sanitation, and third world problems become our own. It’s not the fault of individual Mexicans or anyone else that they’re born in that part of the world, acquire certain bad habits, or get exposed to problems due to their native countries’ public health infrastructure. But it is an avoidable problem for America, and much of the immigration problem amounts to whether we’re willing to exercise any will or political power to preserve a distinctive and valuable way of life that we have created for ourselves in the United States, including such features as habits, manners, politics, economics, education, language, religion, respect for the freedoms of others, and all that goes into the American way of life.
