How nice for him. Illegal immigrants raped my neighbors. Oh, I’m sorry, was it bigoted of me to mention that?
Powell, a moderate Republican, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is "what's keeping this country's lifeblood moving forward."At the risk of being picky, or bigoted, aren’t our citizens the lifeblood that keeps this country moving forward? Just a thought. The general doesn’t mention how he feels about hiring illegals while his fellow citizens are losing everything they own due to unemployment but from his tone he doesn’t appear to be overly concerned.
In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants because they "are doing things we need done in this country."
He added: "They're all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I'm sure you've seen them at your house. We've got to find a way to bring these people out of the darkness and give them some kind of status."
Powell did not say whether he's hired illegal immigrants directly or they showed up with contractors.
I thank Gen. Powell for his service. Now he could be of further service if he would recognize the plight of his fellow Americans who are suffering because of this administration’s refusal to protect its taxpaying citizens from what are essentially foreign invaders.
Note: On May 18, 2010, Jose Walle was sentenced to fifteen life sentences without possibility of parole for his part in the above mentioned kidnapping and rape of two women from my area. Walle earlier received a twenty-seven year sentence for a different rape of a third woman assualted while he and two cohorts were on their crime spree. Also in May of 2010 the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that teenagers cannot be sentenced to life without parole for crimes that do not include homicide. Walle is a teenager and will be resentenced next month. The women he brutally and repeatedly raped are not so lucky. They will serve a life sentence that no court can commute. There is no justice for the victims.
