THE TEX-MEX ARMADILLO
News Item: President Obama liberalizes immigration rules concerning the illegal alien
parents of US. citizens.
Yes, it has been a difficult life: I have children here and parents there. Every year
they make the crossing more difficult.
I dig and scratch out a living -- so many years I don't remember -- construction work.
Let me ask you something: If you don't need me here, how come I have a job these
last dozen years?
You know, if you kept the border open for workers like me, I would probably live in
Mexico and do seasonal work here.
Others would do the same ... maybe even farm their land for food. Before NAFTA
they could live off the land. Now import of subsidized US grain has made it
impossible, and the farmers are all here working like me and stuck.
Stuck, because the border is dangerous. They use terrible weapons, terrible bullets
... even my armor-plating is not enough protection.
What I want to know is this: what happens after the two years this amnesty runs for
... the immigration has your address ... you get the boot ... sayonara!
Not for nothing is this guy called smart. He has deported more than anyone. And
they did nothing when the Democrats controlled the House, the Senate and the White
House with him in it.
I think I'll pass on it. Just keep digging deeper to visit home. I do miss it ... a lot ...
