There used to be value in being an American. You were respected if you traveled overseas, you got to vote in American elections, you could volunteer to hold appointed of elected office, and generally you got through customs in the Western Hemisphere pretty easily. Well, I guess things are changing very fast.
CBS News Los Angeles reported on Tuesday that Huntington Park, California, has appointed two illegal aliens (the article calls them undocumented immigrants, but they are illegal aliens) to the health and education commission and the parks and recreation commission. Councilman Jhonny Pineda explained that the two new appointees will not be paid (it would be illegal to pay them) and that both are young men who Pineda says have a long history of volunteering for the city and the undocumented community.
I have a question. If these two men have been volunteering and being an asset to the community, why isn’t there some sort of way the city can help them become citizens? I am not talking amnesty for everyone who is here illegally, but I am wondering if specific cases where people have been an asset to a specific community can be looked and helped through the process of becoming a citizen.
The article reports:
Pineda says the move is historic, and would make Huntington Park the first city to have undocumented immigrants on city commissions.
I guess this is another example of illegal aliens doing jobs Americans won’t do.
