Unhinged and Uninformed

Surfing around today, I found this by way of Jim's Parkway Rest Stop.

If this isn't the most obvious reason we should be curbing the flow of illegal aliens into this country, it had damned well be near the top of the list.

Here is all the history anyone needs. It's the February, 1848 treaty with Mexico that declared that the US would take possession of Texas as part of her victory in the war. We kicked Mexico's ass then, and we'll kick it again if we have to. That's the "true history".

On the other issue on this idiot's sign ...

NO ONE calls ANYONE illegal for being Mexican. People being called illegal are being called illegal for being, well, ILLEGAL. These people have entered a sovereign nation without doing so in accordance with its laws. If you entered this country (or any other, for that matter) without following the proper procedure set forth in law, then you are, by definition, ILLEGAL.

By the way, if I were an INS agent, I would make sure anyone holding a sign bragging about their illegal status were taken into custody for a verification of citizenship or legal status. If found to in fact be in the country illegally, I would prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. If found to be legal, then they would be released - no problem. A sign bragging about illegal status would easily rise to the level of probable cause.
