Spanish workers expand our economy when their families live here. That equates
to more jobs. Legal immigrants can contribute freely to our free enterprise
system, and are not coerced into taking "any job I can get". Legal
immigrants seek to better themselves and their families, just like the Italians,
Germans, Japanese, British, and Chinese before them.Even in the
Spanish dominaterd neighborhoods, the children that attend school and are taught
in English are bi-lingual.
@gmlewis:"The only way to achieve immigration control is to first
perceive them as an asset to the nation."How can they be
perceived as an asset when they are gobbling up jobs that American unemployed
(and there are millions) should be taking?"We need to have an
'Immigration Nafta' type bill that welcomes PERMANENT influx of
immigrants from Canada and Mexico."We need a bill that takes
people from countries around the world on some sort of an equitable basis. As
it now stands, we take mostly Hispanics from South and Central America. And
soon they will be running things. Check your cable TV stations, for example.
We now have a dozens of Hispanic speaking stations. Do we have Russian,
Lithuanian, French, German, Chinese stations? (No) Nyet, Ne, Non, Nie,
Meiyou."The vital key is that immigrants have to move here with
their families and take up residence. This will motivate them to learn English
within the first generation, and assimulate into our culture."It
will cause no such motivation... at least for Hispanics. They come here and
form their own enclaves so they don't have to learn English.
The only way to achieve immigration control is to first perceive them as an
asset to the nation. We have tried for so long to restrict immigration that
immigration law is filled with obstacles. We need to have an "Immigration
Nafta" type bill that welcomes PERMANENT influx of immigrants from Canada
and Mexico. The only provisions is that they must pass a police background
check, and they MUST enter through official border entry points. (Severely
punish as spies anyone crossing at any other point.) If an immigrant
joins the United States Arms Forces, they should be given citizenship as soon as
they finish their first tour of duty.The vital key is that
immigrants have to move here with their families and take up residence. This
will motivate them to learn English within the first generation, and assimulate
into our culture.
Harry Reid is the WORST!! The absolute WORST self-dealing, hypocritical
self-over-country party-over-country politician!! And by the way -
he would be out of Washington if the tea party hadn't nominated that
extreme woman.And Harry laughed and laughed all the way to the
George is totally convoluted today. Is he for or against immigration reform?
While touting compromise, he gives no idea of what to compromise over. Clay,
Douglas, and the rest of the guys who couldn't make up their minds whether
slavery was good or bad -- these are not role models for today.
While I agree with Mr. Will, I would only add that he's trying to compare
REAL STATESMEN, (patriots)to todays' politicians. That doesn't
work.Todays' politicians aren't statesmen as near as I can
tell. They simply make decisions based on who lines their pockets first and how
deep the cash gets stuffed into their pockets.Nothing more, nothing
When a piece of legislation is described as "comprehensive" that's
the signal that it's filled with pork and fraud.
Why is George Will reading this bill before it passes? Nancy Pelosi has
explained that we have to pass the bill to know what's in it. Just
look at the results of Obamadoesn'tcare to see what will happen if Congress
passes this massive immigration bill.
Nevada gets pork for being a Border State. Well guess who engineered that.
Smells like Harry Reid. Here is another bill much akin to Brackobamacare that is
so lengthy that no one reads and we end up in the same mess that is now
Brackobamacare. Mr. Will is right this is nothing more than future liberal
voters dependent on govenment hand outs.
