A Cute Version of “Let’s Say I Break Into Your House”

. . . Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Arizona instead of Congress
is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration.

Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.

Let’s say I break into your house.

Let’s say I break into your house…

Let’s say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave.


But I say, ‘No! I like it here. It’s better than my house. I’ve made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I’ve done all the things you don’t like to do. I’m hard-working and honest

(except for when I broke into your house).
According to the protesters:

You are Required to let me stay in your house.  You are Required to feed me
You are Required
to add me to your family’s insurance plan
You are Required
to Educate my kids
You are Required
to Provide other benefits to me & to my family

My husband will do all of your yard work because he is also hard-working and honest. (except for that breaking in part).


If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.




It’s only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I’m just trying to better myself. I’m a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your house
And what a deal it is for me!!!


I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.


Oh yeah, and I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE!!! so that you can communicate with me.



. . . how ridiculous [is this]?!  


The illegal’s claim to clean up after American’s–My question is who cleans up after them?

After viewing and reading “Junkyard Passage”, I say, “Back-up and clean-up after yourself:

You packed it in–now pack it out!
