Illegal Texan of the Year? Dallas paper says yes

December 30th, 2007 . by TexasFred

DALLAS (AP) – Because everybody in Texas “has felt the tidal wave of his presence,” the illegal immigrant has been named the Texan of the Year by The Dallas Morning News.

“We can’t seem to live with him and his family, and if we can live without him, nobody’s figured out how,” the story posted on The Dallas Morning News Web site on Saturday said.

The newspaper identified illegal immigration as perhaps the largest story in the nation and in the state in 2007. Texas’ immigrant population has increased by nearly 33 percent since 2000, according to an analysis of government data by the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies.

In that period, the number of total immigrants entering the country has exceeded all previous historical eras. Half the immigrants in Texas – about 7 percent of all Texans – are here illegally.

“The illegal immigrant is the waiter serving margaritas at our restaurant table, the cook preparing our enchiladas,” the story said. “He works grueling hours at a meatpacking plant, carving up carcasses of cattle for our barbecue (he also picks the lettuce for our burgers). He builds our houses and cuts our grass. She cleans our homes and takes care of our children.”

Illegal Texan of the Year? Dallas paper says yes

The Dallas Morning News just lost a subscriber, my wife has been a reader for many years and she just dumped em…

As anyone that has ever read here knows, I have nothing against ANY man or woman making a living in the USA, but do it legally, I have NO use for the wetback ILLEGALS that the DMN appears to think so much of…  

As a resident of Texas, a LEGAL one, I see the jobs that the ILLEGALS do, and yeah, they work, and for the most part, they are hard workers but here’s the bottom line, they are here ILLEGALLY, and that is the part of the equation that must be rectified…

And now we don’t have ANY Presidential candidate that will take a HARD stand against this ILLEGAL invasion, Tancredo dropped out and endorsed Romney, a move that made me lose ALL respect for Tancredo, Thompson is on the verge of imploding, I wonder if that implosion will be as lazy as the rest of his campaign, NONE of the rest, from either side, are willing to take a stand, a really TOUGH, NO B.S. stand against the wetback invasion, they are afraid the may offend some Hispanic voters, those that are here legally…

What NONE of them realize is this, the Hispanic folks that are here in the USA legally, and the ones that have become citizens, they hate the wetback invasion as much as anyone…

To name ILLEGALS as ‘Texans of the Year’ is nothing less than a travesty on the part of the DMN, and I hope any and all subscribers to that RAG will follow our lead and immediately cancel your subscription to them, nothing gets attention as quickly as a monetary hit, and in MY opinion, this calls for a hit so tremendous that it may well bankrupt the DMN, and letters to the editor would also be a nice touch as well…

    The Texas immigrant population has risen 33% in seven years? By immigrant, I assume they are talking of those who came here according to the laws of the Unites States of America. A person who came here in violation of US Laws isn’t an immigrant but a criminal and can be referred to as aliens.

    “He works grueling hours at a meatpacking plant, carving up carcasses of cattle for our barbecue (he also picks the lettuce for our burgers).”

    Yes, he works grueling hours in meat packing plants, replacing American Citizens who were let go and replace by illegal aliens for a third of the pay. A Kansas City radio stationed interviewed a woman who was making $17 per hour at a meat packing plant and was let go in favor of laborers who would work for $7.50 per hour. This woman happened to be Black and you would think the NAAPC would be on to what illegals are doing to Black laborers in America but they’re too stupid.

    Someone… anyone, please in the name of whatever, ‘splain to me why the word illegal is so hard to understand. I honest to God don’t get it. I was raised to obey laws, if I didn’t like a law, stay in school and try to change it. Not if you don’t like a law, just go break it. What the eff happened ??? I don’t understand..I really don’t.

    Yesterday I received our California Presidential Primary Election Voters Guide. When you turn it over you see that it’s also available in:



    Who’s paying for these?

    The residents of Cali I am guessing, the tax paying ones…

    The saddest portion your paper wrote was this: “. . .and if we can live without him, nobody’s figured out how.”

    NO ONE can figure out HOW? Oh, really?

    I bet you and I can.
