Ground Zero In Occupied America

A painful part of our life at VDARE.COM is desperate
email from ordinary Americans seeking protection from
the impact of immigration.  Often they beg for help in
reporting illegal aliens to the indifferent authorities.
All we can do is refer them to Juan Mann`s handy

I found these two recent emails from women, reproduced
without editing, especially affecting:

I moved to a new
apartment.   I have a handicapped adult child 21.   He
is visually impaired, has cerebral palsey and autism.  
He has very poor balance and needs help walking.   My
apartments go A, B, & C.   The parking goes the same
way.   The spanish people in C took my parking and
wouldn`t give it back.   So I called my land lord who is
taking forever to fix the situation.   I have
handicapped parking and the people in C don`t want to
honor that either.   I am sure they are illegals.   They
have 5 or 6 cars parked on an empty lot each with a
different expired tag from 2000 on.    How do they have
more rights than me?   Thanks

The second writer is “not sure” who she should
talk to about her troubles—but sensibly has no
expectation from her government:

I`m not
sure who I should talk to but I have a house full of
mexicans who live next door to me and I`m having nothing
but problems with them they play their music all times
of the day and when I complain they just stare and don`t
know how to speak a word of english I have an 11 year 
neice  when the men see her they look her up and down
and make cat noises she doesn`t feel safe to walk in her
own yard or outside the house the girls who live there
roll their eyes at us or stare. when I talked to their
landlord she told me she really can`t do anything
because when she tries to talk to them they don`t
understand her because no one in that house  speaks a
word of english who do I contact because I feel they
should not be living there.

It`s easy to brush off these simple appeals—if you live
in a gated community or the Upper West Side of
Manhattan. All across America, however, this is the
reality that blue collar workers face. And they will
face on a vastly increased scale if Bush gets his

open-borders plan
package through.

Which is why we call it

“The Bush Betrayal.”

An American Reader Eyes
British Immigration Stirrings

From: “A School Nurse”

A School Nurse Sends a
Post-Christmas Report From Occupied America

Just recently, my sister asked me
how I could be so full of

. As I started to think about her comments, I
realized that maybe it isn`t exactly hate after all,
it`s sadness. I then started to think why I feel so
compelled to write to VDARE.COM about

illegal immigration

The reason is that I can see
first-hand what an impact this is going to have in our
country. The rest of America does not realize what will
soon happen because they are not yet affected as we are
here in Arizona.

This is a typical day in [an Arizona city] for me, a
school nurse in a school which is
now 95 percent Spanish-speaking.

From my office window, I get a
clear view of the parking lot and the drop-off area.
What I see are Tahoes, Suburbans and other expensive
vehicles that the "poor" immigrants drive. (Gee, my car
has 125,000 miles on it and I am a college grad.) Most
of our immigrant families live with others to be able to
buy homes here. I know that because they have to get a
letter from the person that owns the home in order to
register for school. (Gee, when my family immigrated
from Europe, they lived in a sod home on the Prairie and
nobody felt sorry for them. They learned to persevere
and to work hard.)

Often, we have 100 kids that are
tardy and many more who are absent. My office is filled
with Moms who don`t speak English requesting that I
check ears, temps, etc. (Gee, I thought that all the
illegals were working hard in the jobs no one else
wants, but instead, they are here in my office.)

They don`t smile at me or make much
eye contact. (Gee, I thought that I was the one that was
full of hate.) They are usually accompanied by the five
other siblings and they are either crying or running
around my office getting into things because Mom doesn`t
discipline them.

My phone rings constantly with
phone calls for the attendance line and the first thing
I hear is: "Habla Espanol?" (I do because I have

Today is our

Medicaid funded
dental clinic and our clinic for
free shots. (Gee, nobody ever

did this
for us.)

The lockdown bell sounds. There has
been another

gang related shooting
in the neighborhood. The
police officer who shares my office responds. (We have
police officers and probation officers in the middle
schools.) I later find out that the victim was one of
our former students who hardly ever came to school.

I read in the newspaper today how
sad it is that the schools

can`t educate the Latinos
and it`s the fault of the
system. (Gee, I went through the same school system.) My
tattooed Hispanic office aide knows the gang member who
was shot. She tells me that she can get big screen TVs
for two hundred dollars. (Gee, isn`t this a good role

After work, I make a trip to the
local WalMart. Diapers and garbage litter the parking
lot. I stand out like a sore thumb because I am the
English-speaker around except the people working in the
store. (Gee, I thought I was in the United States).

When I get home, I read another
newspaper article about the great number of Hispanic
children who are killed in
accidents because they don`t have car seats or don`t
know how to use them. An organization that feels for
them is providing

free car seats
. (Gee, what else are they going to
get for free?)

Another article talks about the new
center that the City Council is going to build to

shelter the illegals
from the hot sun while they
wait for work. (Gee, I thought they were

Another article covers the illegals
that died trying to cross the border because the State
did not provide water. The families are going to

the State.

This is a typical day for me in
what used to be the United States. I have not
exaggerated or embellished at all.

I am sad for our future and sad for
my country.

Is this the way Americans want to
