Theres been a lot of hooting and hollering about illegal immigration lately. No one has really said anything about how the problem came to be. First of all it was Texas who allowed over 5 million illegal immigrants in over a very short period of time. It wasnt as if these folks were showing up in Nebraska, Maine or upstate New York. There has always been movement between Mexico and California but what happened in Texas was really unique. The Texans pretty much sold and gave away most of their state in return for cash. We have 50 states and one of them tried this experiment. Apparently it failed because after selling everything off the Texans couldnt pay their regular bills. So we ended up with men like Representative Tom Delay and Kenneth Lay from Enron. The big fight now is that republicans in general realize what they did in Texas and the Texans want to do it to the rest of the country. That just wont fly. Things look bad now but it has become apparent that there are some elements in Texas that live their lives taking what doesnt belong to them. You can get away with that sort of thing for a short time but in the long run its got to stop. What happened in Texas can be a warning to the other 49 states as they chart out their course for the future. Lesson 1 : Dont sell your land, your heritage or your people.
