I just saw an interesting article in the business press. It seems that wages in
China have risen to the point that Chinese corporations are importing illegal
immigrants from Vietnam and Myanmar. If a country lives by cheap wages, it can
also die by cheap wages.
Well now, that is just too sensible. And it won't give the liberals more
votes, so they will never go for it.
Where is the words innocent tell proven guilty found in the Constitution?
Unless they are your very best friends how many guests have the right to walk
into your home unannounced without knocking, Help themselves to the
refrigerator, TV, Computer, tell you what to do basically and do what they want
in your home.Anyone is welcome in this country as long as they have
proper visas, and are law abiding. I work with many of those type of people.
It is nice if they follow the rule of law though. That is the issue people have
is them overstaying there welcome and not being law abiding.
Idea sounds great on the surface, but I think your being a little naïve
about how many "quests" will be showing up for dinner (as a figure of
speech). If you leave it that wide open, you will get half the world coming our
way. Second problem with your ideas, is the thought about requiring that kind of
ID for voting. That will send the un-hinged nut-cakes on the left, completely
over the edge!!!
Party crashers are not guests.
I saw an interesting sign in a business the other day: This employer
e-verifies!I hope to see that sign in many more businesses; these
are the businesses I will patronize.
" If a guest wants to work, no one objects. "That would
require social security fraud, id theft, and perjury (i-9 forms). How about we
enforce our current laws. border/e-verify/interior enforcement/more judges/visa
entry-exit check. Give away your job if you want, but don't
give away your neighbors. It's not your right to give. Thomas
Sowell said: Let's go back to square one. The purpose of American
immigration laws and policies is not to be either humane or inhumane to illegal
immigrants. The purpose of immigration laws and policies is to serve the
national interest of this country. There is no inherent right to come live in
the United States, in disregard of whether the American people want you here.
Nor does the passage of time confer any such right retroactively.
The sentiment is great, but what do you do when the guests take the food from
your table, then your table and your home?Cheap foreign labor has
done great harm to America’s working public. This would of course include
both immigrates and the foreign labor as well. While being of great profit to
business operations, American business is reluctant to share the bounty with
working Americans.It’s not the fault of the immigrates or the
foreign labor to want better lives, it’s the fault of businessmen who take
advantage of the oppression of other nations.
Some good ideas there. Obviously, politicians such as Obama and his lackey ,
Holder will not round illegals up and send them home. Costs too much, they
say.So, they are here to stay. I say, don't give them
citizenship, ever. Unless they are willing to go home and get in line. And
maybe not even then since they are law breakers of US immigration laws. We
wouldn't allow citizenship for those who break our illegal drug laws, would
we? So, why make an exception for those who break our immigration laws?There is only one fly in the ointment. Unless we stem the influx,
millions will continue to come. We can't handle them. We don't have
the room for the entire world to come here. The best and cheapest way to stop
illegal immigration is to cut off the magnet the brings them here. And how do
we do that? Take away employment. We strictly enforce E-Verify. And make it
apply to all employers even down to a single employee. And make the penalty
strong so it gets employers' attention. Like go to jail or have the assets
of the company seized by the government.
Deporting 12 million, according to a government study done in 2007 by the
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency put the cost at 94 billion. This is
a one time cost, that does not include self deportation. The Federation for
American Immigration Reform puts the cost of illegal immigration at $113 billion
per year. When you add in the boost to our economy from putting millions of
Americans back to work in non agriculture jobs, we can't afford not to.
We could solve the whole issue by requiring all employers including those exempt
in the senate bill which states employers with more less than 50 employees of
which landscapers, sub contractors and hotels who hire the majority would be
exempt because they have less than 50 employees, to e-verify. Guess don't
come into your house, move in,eat your food, take your money and your job.
Guest come into the country for a visit and then leave.
Guests aren't guests unless they're invited or welcome. And yes, they
are criminals. The first time they come here (uninvited), it's a
misdemeanor. The second time, it's a felony. The writer should let these
"guests" stay at his house.
It's a privilege to be a guest. If your not been privileged to be a guest
than your not a guest but a trespasser.
