Nobody cares. Take your lil Facebook fight to a other platform. We don't
care to read it. And btw, we can't find nor afford to deport all illegals.
Instead, why don't righties like you, ever blame the real culprit? Greedy businesses which hire illegally?Unless businesses are
severely punished then it won't matter what immigration policy we come up
with. Deport them all today and they will all be back tomorrow if businesses
continue their free market practices.
Maverick - You DO realize, I hope, that the latest amnesty proposal came from
Barack Obama?Barack has the means and authority today to arrest and
prosecute those who hire illegal foreign workers. He chooses not to.As one of his staunch supporters maybe you could ask HIM why not?BOTH political parties have their hands dirty undercutting American citizens
and their right to have jobs before illegal foreign workers.As much
as we might want the issue to be partisan, its not.
It's true... when parents make bad decisions their children are
affected.The children had no say in their parents bringing them here
illegally. But that doesn't mean the parents can't be punished for
their bad decision. The children of a burglar have no choice in their
parent's bad decision, and yet the children are affected when their family
is split up while the parent is in jail.There are currently 2.7
Million American children with a parent in prison. That's 1 in 28
American school-aged children have their family split up because their parent
made bad decisions. Why should only the children of illegal alien parents be
immune from the consequences of their parent's decisions?It
bugs me when we bestow more rights or extra-rights on illegal aliens than we do
on our own citizens. If an American citizen breaks the law... their family is
broke up while the parent goes to jail. But if an illegal alien break the
law... we can't do anything because it will affect the children that
didn't make the bad decision?Parent's bad decisions affect
their families (illegal alien families included).
Something to think about...Those American born children are American
citizens. Mexico is under no moral obligation to accept them into their country.
To return with them is simply forcing their children to be illegal immigrants
somewhere else...Why don't we instead focus our efforts on
helping them contribute to society?
Darrel,There are 2 issues here. 1. Parents who brought
children here illegally when they were young (not born here). The child had no
say in their parents decision. Yet they are still here illegally.2.
Parents who are admittedly in the US illegally, but now they have children who
are US Citizens (because they were born here).Nobody's
proposing deporting US citizens (children born in the USA are US citizens).
It's not legal to deport a US citizen. But the parents should not be
rewarded just for being here long enough to have children while here illegally.
They should not be immune from the laws they broke just because they have
children. American children who's parents break the law have their
families split up every day, and the children were at no fault at all.It's also very painful to have to punish parents who are here illegally
who have children born here, because it splits the family. But that's the
decision the parents made.It's a difficult situation when
parents break the law.But we incarcerate American citizens for breaking
the law... even if it splits up the family.
Let's try it one more time---@The Real Maverick:"And
btw, we can't find nor afford to deport all illegals."Take
their jobs away with E-Verify and they'll deport themselves."Unless businesses are severely punished then it won't matter what
immigration policy we come up with."Talk to your leader, Obama,
about that. It's his responsibility, under oath, to see that the laws of
the land are enforced. He only enforces what he wants enforced which is zip,
nil, nada re immigration. Why? To get the Hispanic vote, of course. And as Ann
Coulter suggests: 'When did we vote to become Mexico?'To
DNews monitors: I have to assume you continue rejecting my comments due to Obama
criticism. If that's the case why do I see, time after time, posts
criticizing former President bush? And, by the way, who is the
'appropriate parties' you send my rejected posts to?
Children born here of Mexican parents have duel citizenship. They inherit
citizenship in Mexico from their parents. Just like children of American
citizens receive birthright when born overseas.Children born here
return home with their parents, at 18 they can return to the US or stay in their
parents homeland.In 2007 a government agency, the Immigrations and
Customs Enforcement agency put the price of deporting 12 million people at 94
billion. Much less than the 113 billion dollar cost per year. This number did
not include self deportation. Under Eisenhower, self deportation rivaled his
repatriation deportions. With Obama care coming, and the
uncertainty, we should not be talking Amnesty for 11 million and all those that
have been deported in the past. (as per senate bill)
@The Real Maverick"Nobody cares."Oh, you care.
You care plenty. That is why you posted the comment. That is why you are
advancing the false propaganda that deportation is impossible. Anti-enforcement, anti-deportation groups know full well that a nation's
immigration law must be backed by a willingness to enforce -- which includes
willingness to deport -- otherwise, the law means absolutely nothing. And so they try and discourage Americans against deporting, by telling them --
falsely -- that deportation is impossible, inhumane, splits up families when in
truth the parents are free to take the children with them, etc. They know that
if they can convince Americans not to deport, they have won. Oh,
you care. You care plenty. And by the way: if there are no illegals here,
businesses can't very well hire them, now can they.
This a.m. in the news headlines is a story regarding Utahs' sanctuary
cities' mayors urging Utahs' senators to pass immigration reform.I would urge anyone/everyone who would like laws enforced, and jobs for
LEGAL Americans to contact the senators to urge them to NOT approve new amnesty
legislation.The new immigration bill, if passed, and IF enforced,
would be horribly expensive. Besides having to track 25 million "new"
immigrants, all it will do is attract another batch of illegal immigrants to
receive their amnesty.The ONLY group who benefits from illegal
immigration are illegal and unethical employers. THEY reap the benefits of
cheap labor, while the rest of us pay the social welfare costs.BTW -
some of you may want to ask your local mayors why they support illegal
immigrants over actual law-abiding citizens when you see them on the street.
Many mayors signed the letter to the senators.
The article about the Mayors showed 19 out of 248. I don't think
that's significant enough to warrant an article. Amnesty every
20 years solves nothing, only enforcement solves the problem.
@1conservative:"I would urge anyone/everyone who would like laws
enforced, and jobs for LEGAL Americans to contact the senators to urge them to
NOT approve new amnesty legislation."Especially urge the
liberals who support amnesty for illegals. There's tons of them out there
looking for the Hispanic vote to keep them in office."Besides
having to track 25 million immigrants, all it will do is attract another batch
of illegal immigrants to receive their amnesty."You got that
right. The tracking system would require another layer of bureaucratic control
will thousands of added government employees... paid for with taxpayer money.And, yes. We will see a repeat of the 1986 amnesty action under Reagan
resulting in millions more illegals coming for the same treatment. It is strange
indeed that our politicians can't see the mess the bill will get us into.
It might pay to start learning Spanish now since our population will soon be
approaching fifty percent Hispanic.
