Why is it a given that we cannot deport the 12 million or so illegal aliens in this country? Why can’t we? If we simply enforce laws already on the books, the illegals would have no choice but to go home!
Enforce laws against employing illegal aliens. With no jobs, most would find living here quite unpleasant. They’re here to make money to send back home. If there’s no money, there’s no reason to be here.
In addition, make citizenship a requirement for education, health care, housing, licensing of any sort, union membership, bank accounts, utility accounts, all the necessary parts of modern life. Sure, one can live ‘off the grid’ but there’s only so much room in the depths of the forest!
And when someone applies for any of the above and they’re illegal, not only are they denied what they’re applying for, they should be turned in to the police. These people are breaking the law! If the first thing they do in our country is to break several of our laws, why should we want them here in the first place???
And, of course, they do NOT vote in our elections!!
Please notice that all of the above refers to ILLEGAL aliens. Legal immigrants are wonderful. My great-grandparents were legal immigrants from Germany. I have no problem with someone who wants to come here, work hard and make a better life for themselves and their families! But do it LEGALLY!!
Don’t call me a ‘racist’. That’s a copout. If you have legitimate reasons for your differing opinions, please state them. The moment someone starts calling me names, I know I’ve won the argument. Townhall.com communist Mike Adams defines racism thusly:
Racism – is a pathological tendency to interject race into situations where it is not relevant, merely for personal gain.
Racist – one who interjects race into situations where it is not relevant, merely for personal gain.
I find it very hard to argue with that!!
The United States, as a country, has the right to decide who can and who cannot come here to live. Think of a country as a big club. There are membership requirements for any club be it the high school chess club, the PTA, the Elks, the Masons, Mensa, etc. These requirements do NOT make any of these organizations racist, elitist or evil. It means that one has to WANT to join more than one want the money required for dues or the time it takes to qualify for membership. Something you acquire easily and for free is generally worth the money and effort put into acquiring it. This is the best place to live on earth. Just ask all those Mexicans! It is only right to make entry dependent on something besides being able to sneak over the border.
As Americans, we’re very generous about letting in new members to our ‘club’. We accept huge numbers of legal immigrants every year, welcoming the peoples of the earth to come here, work hard, and make a better life.
Just don’t ask us to give away membership for free!!
