Jonathan Strong describes himself as "a legal non—citizen worker in the United States who has followed the laws, jumped the hurdles, and obeyed the regulations." He has some choice words for those demonstrating today:
Not so long ago on this day we would see Soviet tanks, missiles, aircraft, and columns of soldiers marching through Red Square, Beijing, Havana, and elsewhere in an effort to intimidate the west. Today, we watch illegals in the United States march to try and intimidate Congress into granting them "amnesty".
I, for one, hope that Congress will show some back bone on the subject. Personally, I'm a legal non—citizen worker in the United States who has followed the laws, jumped the hurdles, and obeyed the regulations. It saddens and angers me that those who flaunt the laws and spit in the face of Americans by demanding their rights despite their felonious actions could be granted citizenship by the US government. Those who show such disregard for the laws of the land do not deserve citizenship or even the right to work even temporarily in the United States. It is my belief that they truly do not want to become Americans, rather they seek only the benefits that America offers through its bounty and generosity.
