Image of the Day: The illegal immigrants’ Bill of Rights

Chutzpah is not a word found in Spanish (or in Mexican, if you’re Barack Obama), but it’s one that the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. should learn. They already practice it bigtime.

A group that calls itself United We Stay has produced its own Bill of Rights for “undocumented Americans.”

On its website, the group writes:

Since Congress refuses to act, it’s time we take matters into our own hands. Our Undocumented Americans’ Bill of Rights is a good start. Instead of making impregnable border security the beginning and end of all immigration discussions, let’s find a real roadmap forward.

They go on to pooh-pooh the idea that they should have to “get in line and enter the country like our ancestors,” which is known for short as legally.

  • An illegal immigrant who sneaks into the country, or fails to file his papers, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
  • An illegal immigrant who forges his documents, or falsifies them by lying when he fills them out, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the
  • An illegal immigrant who takes a job faces fines, up to six years in prison, and deportation.
  • All immigrants must provide proof of their legal status if the authorities demand it.  Failure to do so will result, once more, in fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
