Here is my issue with the whole thing and why I’m conflicted. If we don’t do this then we are left with the current system. The current system allows illegals access to federal and state benefits, a border that is not at all protected and many other issues. On the other hand I believe that we should enforce current law, go after business’ that hire illegals, and close the border.
In light of the Supreme Court and their verdicts on gay marriage I feel like there is no better option, I realize that’s surrendering but I just don’t see any other hope.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the current system. If they enforced current law, there would be a fence and deportations would be rapid and sure. They would be defending States from the invasion, deny anchor baby status. They would arrest people using stolen SSN# and jail then deport them.
But if you are naive enough to believe they will enforce new laws better than they do the old ones, then God help us all.
But, Almondjoy, if our immigration system and its laws were actually enforced they way they were designed we wouldn’t be in this position. If they were given access to our state and federal bennie’s, they’d have no reason to come here. Also, if we had an immigration policy similar to say, Mexico’s or anywhere else, we wouldn’t be in this position. Its not your fault or my fault that they live in a 3rd world hell hole. They have industry, auto plants, factories and piles and pile of US dollars pouring in every day. And they still can’t get it right.
An old college friend went to Australia after graduating. He and I played lacrosse together. At the time there was a program for guys that wanted to go down there and play. They would get a short term visa, 3 months I think. After that, they had to leave. Anywho, he was having the time of his life so he called to get it extended. Aussie’s told him no, that if he wasn’t on a plane by the time he needed to be, they would come after him and deport him. He came back. That’s the way it is in most places, why can’t it be the same way here.
