Boundaries too often crossed

Phantom lines drawn in the sand
As they invade our promised land
In pursuit of our American dream
Oh how the plot, oh how they scheme

All the immigrants flood our border
Coming in by plane or crossing water
Thousands a day come from Mexico
Transported here by trucks you know

They crowd into a room or sleep in a car
Saving their wages in a mason jar
On these wages they pay no tax
It chops at our economy like an axe

They do not buy themselves frilly things
Just send money home so their family lives like Kings
As our economy continues to erode
They have the gall to shift into complaining mode

Claiming that we treat them unfair
When it's about this country they don't care
From the economy they continually drain
Todays immigrants are mostly a pain

Our language they refuse to learn
For where they live they show no concern
Under the radar they try to slip
Not caring about their citizenship

It is time for†all our borders to close
All illegal immigrants must be exposed
For the ones who wish to stay, leave no doubt
Learn our language, pay our taxes or get the fuck out

Author's Notes:
I am really sick about hearing how MISTREATED the immigrants are!!!

How I feel your frustration Henry!!!
Its NOT about being racist its the same here its about being FAIR!!!
We are not allowed to scan immigrants for HIV cause it offends their human rights but once inside by fair means or foul.............they cost the NHS £90,000 a YEAR for treatment.
The nhs was set up after the last war where my father fought to give us a fairer health service. Now we are all f==ked!

Henry, this is a terrific write. The flow, rhyme, verse, etc. I keep hearing about coming up with a new immigration policy. Excuse me, let's enforce the one we already have. Little Shrub has not shown much leadership in this area.

Henry phew this was some vent.My sides are hurting with laughing. My hubby is foreign but he contributes to the economy paying more than his fair share of tax. Annoys me when they have the cheek to moan as well.

Love Angelxx
