Congratulations, Marina!

July 16, 2011

One of the chief misconceptions about this website, and about the broader, anti-mass immigration/border security movement, is that it’s motivated by some sort of deep-seated animus towards immigrants, which couldn’t be further from the truth. And while there might be some organizations and individuals who want to impose a permanent moratorium upon immigration, they don’t represent the  philosophy espoused by our movement. The fact is that nothing is worse for legal, industrious immigrants than the current dysfunctional immigration policy pursued by our federal government.

Decent, hard-working individuals-such as one of my best friends, who I’ve known since junior high school-have to endure a seemingly interminable process that (hopefully) culminates in citizenship, while those who are adept at exploiting the system, such as this charming fellow, or this harmless scamp, are allowed to operate with impunity. That’s why it brings me great pleasure to report that Marina Orlova, the woman pictured above and the creator of Hot For Words, is the newest American citizen! Doubtless many of you are familiar with her viral Youtube videos, which are both educational and entertaining. Let her tell you herself of the efforts that went into her quest for citizenship. Marina Orlova, one of the newest Americans, we’re glad to count you among us.

    Naturally, the open borders crowd will continue to conflate legal immigration with illegally sneaking in to the country. It doesn’t matter whether their incorrect categorization is deliberate or a product of ignorance: either way, they end up looking sad. Either way, well done, Marina. It’s odd how those who respect the rules always seem to respect the nation, too.

    It’s funny how that works, isn’t it?

    Well let’s be honest here, “immigration reform”, has never been about keeping out blond haired blue eyed European immigrants. It’s about keeping Mexicans out. After all it’s Mexicans/Hispanics and not Russian babes that threaten to become the majority in this country in the next 50 years and along with it change the “culture” of this nation.

    Wow. The “you’re scared of Mexicans” accusation. It must have taken a lot of intense research to summon that incisive rebuttal.
