Participants debate effectiveness of E-Verify, other fixes
My comment is from two perspectives: First, a retired law enforcement command
rank officer, and the second from someone who resides in Arizona, not Utah.1. The immigration laws of this nation are NOT broken: they are just
not enforced. 2. Proof of this can be seen from the millions who, in the
past 10 years, have come to this nation legally.3. Granted, there needs
to be a better way to permit short term work for agricultural needs.4.
Our borders are NOT secure. only about 10 to 20% of those entering the US
illegally are caught: the other 80 to 90% get through. So what you hear on the
news of the massive drop in illegal immigrants is only partially true.5.
E-verify is about 98% accurate, and those that are identified as being here
without proper documentation have time to show proof.6. Lastly, right
down the street from me is a crew of illegal immigrants replacing a roof. So
much not taking jobs from Americans.
Those here illegally that are denied, are eligible to keep working until the
situation is cleared up. Ut's law is a joke, with no penalties and
an attorney general that does not check compliance, it's worse than nothing. It
gives those unfamiliar with it's non enforcement a sense of security.
>"If they have jobs there, there's no reason to come here," Tsai
said.<Unless they can get more freebies from US government entitlement
programs by coming here illegally, regardless of whether they work or not here
or not. If elected officials were responsive to citizens instead of campaign
donors, and if they enforced EXISTING laws, this problem would be greatly
Enforce existing laws. Send illegal's home, pronto.
We do not have the climate of enforcement needed to encourage self-deportation.
Far from it. Obama has declared that he is going after the criminals. The
other side of that coin is that non-violent illegal aliens have a sense of
security. Crime pays. Why, even politicians and church leaders are in the news
defending their presence.We need to deport people for no other reason than
the fact that they are here illegally.We need to change the political
will.Having a candidate and an immigration lawyer debate the issue is
meaningless. I could write the script for both of them without even being
All this talking about the ilegalls willn't change a thing until we sending them
packing and take a toughter stand. I believe that if you are here illegally than
send them back to were they came from. Don't give them any foodstamps, medical,
and free schooling,or tution help if they aren't here legally. I don't care
anymore if it breaks up families, because you knew they weren't here ilegally,
and I am tried of hearing about my family will be broken up, maybe if you
married an illegal, maybe you need to go to jail, because you are breaking the
law. I also believe you all who say show them what the bible say remember that
it also states that you must obey the laws of man made and then God's laws too.
If the ones that says that maybe you want to pay for it by paying more taxes,
but I am tried of seeing my tax dollars going this way.
