Are you serious? Can you name any country in the world that would permit this? It is not only the border. 40% of the illegals here are visa overstays. If we have the political will, we can secure the border.
Any legislation that legalizes the status of those who broke our laws by entering our country illegally and allows them to stay and work here is amnesty. We must not only prevent the Democrats and some moderate Republicans from hijacking the meaning of the word amnesty, but the public must be made aware about the true impact of an amnesty. The Heritage Foundation concluded that the cost of amnesty would be $2.6 trillion just for increased entitlement program costs. And the number of additional LEGAL immigrants who would join those who were the recipients of amnesty through chain migration, i.e., family reunification, would approach 70 million over a 20-year period, assuming there are only 12 million illegal aliens. We cannot assimilate such numbers. An amnesty would destroy the United States of America with the stroke of a pen.
The courts in CA overthrew the will of the people and sane fiscal policy when they overturned prop 187. Of course the unions want more social workers paying dues that dole out the services. We can see how that’s turning out, esp. in the school system.
Am I serious? Yes, why not?
It’s what they are doing now, only now they stay because they fear they cannot go back and come again. If we just opened the Border at least some of them wopuld go homeonce in a while.
Well No I am not serious, but you have to admit, it has some merit. We arent really stopping them now-—and Obama has no intention of ever stopping them, especially now that they have elected him.
Why waste effort and money and make them swim?
