Si Se Puede: The Illegal Immigrant Rally Cry


Everytime I turn on the news and see a story about a bunch of Illegal Immigrants rallying, they always have the same silly ass chant: "Si Se Puede" (Literal translation: "Yes We Can").

Yes you can...what? Is it just me, or does this "catch-all" phrase used in the hispanic community have absolutely nothing to do with illegal immigration.

"Yes we can...yes we can...". What? Cross our borders and live in this country illegally? "Yes we can, yes we can...". What? Work here illegally, not pay taxes and yet have the people who do pay taxes cover the costs of YOUR healthcare? If that's what "Si Se Puede" really means then, congratulations, because it seems to be working.

For the most part, however, the citizens and the government of the United States disagree with your philosophies. If you want to make a better life for yourself in the U.S., please, do it the right way. Go back to Mexico, fill out the paperwork and get in line. As long as you are here in this country illegally, we have every right to pick you up and drop you off at the border in Tijuana or Mexicali. Those illegals who say, "You can't do that!", on the contrary my friends, si se puede (oh, hell yeah we can)!!!


I agree and I am an ...

I agree and I am an immigrant. I did it the legal way, had all the problems and costs of US Customs and Immigration and survived. I will be a citizen soon and would be a citizen sooner if illegals did not clog the system.
A suggestion for illegals: Do it the RIGHT way. I don't want to support criminals.

yebo_55 - Welcome to ...

yebo_55 -
Welcome to America and all she has to offer. And, congrats on your citizenship.

yeah for yebo_55 for doing ...

yeah for yebo_55 for doing it right! i am happy to pay taxes to cover your healthcare!! you rock!

Here are the immigration ...

Here are the immigration laws of " MEXICO "

There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, all government business will be conducted in our language.

Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.

Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office.

Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs.

Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

If foreigners do come and want to buy land that will be okay, BUT options will be restricted. You are not allowed waterfront property. That is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.

Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies, if you do you will be sent home. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail.

America should copy their laws.

Congrats Yebo_55!! Thank ...

Congrats Yebo_55!! Thank you for showing the right way does pay!! You got one thing wrong..you are NOT an immigrant you are an American. God Bless.

No LW72, she had it right, ...

No LW72, she had it right, she IS an immigrant, just like my aunt that came from overseas. She is NOT an illegal alien. She can call herself American, but she must never forget that she put in the hard work to do it legally.

Congrats Yebo! It's nice to see people do it the legal way!

Yes mry_m - America should copy their laws!

If the immigrants aren't ...

If the immigrants aren't paying taxes it is because our crooked politicians haven't closed the loop holes. I am sure the 15 or 20 that cook their food mow their yard and work in thier companies would have nothing to do with it. My family immigrated from Scotland in 1780 to find a better life for their children. When we demand that our elected officials come in from the golf course and fine the companies that don't deduct the correct taxes then the problem will be solved. WE make the laws not them. If they are not working then WE need to demand that our vastly overpaid politicians fix them. It is THEIR job.

Many illegal immigrants ...

Many illegal immigrants have fake S.S. #s to be able to work. Where do the funds from their taxes and S.S. go? Most immigrants don't file or are not here long enough to receive the S.S. benefits. And most will not file unemployment for the fear of of using fake S.S#s
