My grandparents (from both sides) came from Europe and they always thought their greatest accomplishment was becoming an American citizen. They’ve told me many times as I was going up, how they loved the fact that they were given the chance to be an American.
Unfortunately that is no longer the case with the new wave of immigrants that are coming here illegally. As a matter of fact the numbers of immigrants coming over the border is growing at an unbelievable rate. That is because we allow our politicians to not just help them get into this country, but they even help them get established as to where to find jobs, pass bills that will allow them to get bank accounts and last but not the least get subprime mortgages.
Yes, you read that right, mortgages.
When I went o get a mortgage, the lenders had my wife and I jump through hoops in getting paperwork as well as the 10% down to get it. We’ve paid off our mortgage and didn’t ask for any handouts in the process. Our credit crisis is the way it is because of bad lending practices and lack of true credit from the borrowers.
While I was looking through my daily blogs I came across this post from Michelle Malkin that I wanted to share with our readers that might have missed her article. Her post on illegal immigration and the mortgage mess really got my balls twisted and I wished that there was something that I could do, but it’s gotten to the point that our own government doesn’t really listen to us anymore.
