Is it me, or is there a lack of common sense here?
According to foxnews.com, Latino leaders are calling on illegal immigrants to boycott the census citing that being counted but not represented is unfair.
Why the hell are they being counted to begin with? The purpose of the census is to get an accurate count of AMERICAN CITIZENS to gerrymander Congressional seats. To count illegal immigrants only serves one purpose: To bolster population counts in what are normally Democratic strongholds. Thanks ACORN!! Oops...I mean COI (Communist Obama Idealogs).
"It doesn't make any sense, in some way it is immoral that we are counting 12 million undocumented immigrants who have no benefit at all financially speaking," said Rev. Miguel Rivera, president of the National Coalition of Latino Clergy & Christian Leaders.
No financial benefit??? How about the illegals who fill our emergency rooms and get their bills paid by the American taxpayer? Or how about the illegals who fill our prisons and are cared for by the American taxpayer instead of being deported? The burden on our system by illegal immigrants is what's immoral, Rev. Rivera.
I'm not going to go into the reasons why we need to address illegal immigration. I posted on this yesterday, and I don't want to be redundant. Maybe Rev. Rivera needs to read it.
Someone please pass the duct tape!
