Another sell out of the American worker. Amnesty 8, enforcement 0
This article states that this bill "would crack down on future illegal
immigration".My question... why is currently breaking our
immigration laws going to be rewarded instead of prosecuted, while people doing
the exact same thing in the future will supposedly be gone after and prosecuted?
Why is one time-frame being treated and acted upon any differently than the
other? Breaking the law is breaking the law, regardless of when it's done.
Consequences are spelled out in our already existing immigration laws, but are
now being largely ignored. Why?Why does the federal government even
bother passing immigration laws to begin with, if they are ultimately going to
just pick and choose how, when, and even if those laws will even be enforced? We
allow "sanctuary cities" where violators are given free passes from the
law. None of all of this makes much sense to those of us who were brought
up to respect our laws and what they stand for.
Don't insult our intelligence.This is a DONE DEAL in committee and
better than even odds it will pass the Senate.The entire process was
political theater from the Gang of Eight through the committee discussions.
They have already shown their willingness to ignore the law and the best
interests of the citizens of the United States.The politicians have a
modicum of bravery since no one is on a ballot this year. Hatch and Lee
both endorse the premise that it is good to reward lawless behavior. We would
expect conservatives to endorse the GOP platform.Our best hope is the
House where we hope to have enough real leaders to stop this thing.
