Webster says we ned to do something....then he should secure the border with a
fence and start penalizing those who employ illegals.
Pretty obvious that it's all about politics and winning elections from some
of these folks, and they'd readily side with Satan himself if they thought
it would garner them a few more votes. Rewarding invaders with a "path to
citizenship" (administered by our ultra-fair, ultra-efficient,
ultra-transparent Federal government, of course) is like rewarding bank robbers
and embezzlers with a path to prosperity.
"Doing nothing is amnesty."Doing nothing still gives the the
option to start enforcing laws in the future. The promise of enforcement in 1986
and 1996 have not been kept. The fence, e-verify, interior enforcement, more
judges, and a visa entry/exit system check. TSA over enforces the
airports, and forgets the 9/11 bombers were here on overstayed visas. It's
business and cheap labor against the American people. Wouldn't it better
serve the national interest to get our citizens off of welfare and into good
jobs with rising pay?Once passed, we will see 46 million people in
the next two decades, double the green cards and 2-4 times the work visas
(already at 3.2 million per year)
Please Republicans...or Tea Particans or Conservicans or whatever label you
prefer...Please continue to do everything you are doing, except do
it even more and much faster.Thank you!
Those who are here without legal paperwork or permission already have a
"pathway to citizenship". It's just that they have refused to take
it. So now they expect the US Gov't to create an easier "pathway to
citizenship" just for them because they refused to obey our laws. What
indication do we have that millions more of their countrymen will not follow in
their footsteps if we as a Nation allow them an easier path for ignoring our
laws? Can we support another 50 to 60 million unauthorized entrants over the
next 10 years?What proof do we have that our Gov't will enforce
the Immigration Laws if they are changed? They have refused to fully enforce the
current ones from 1986 and 1996 for even 1 year since they were changed then.We need to do 4 years of full enforcement and then review the results.
The Senate's BIPARTISAN Immigration bill is a good compromise. The House
should pass it so the country can move on.
informed voter. I wonder how much it would cost to build a fence from CA to
Texas. I believe an 1100 mile fence would cost billions. And then immigrants
would find a way around it. Illegal immigration is an economic not a criminal
problem, a concept that that the far right refuses to accept. Ridiculous
comments about immigrants carrying disease just make the anti-immigration crowd
look like bigots and racists.
