That would be a good poll question...perhaps as high as 10% for food.
I am very curious. What do you disagree with? An unsecured border? How can we afford to secure it? Understaffed INS? How can we afford to staff it? Visa-on-demand? Please go into a little detail.Ah, well, I disagree with a fair bit of this but yeah, that would then be forgiveness. That said, you're not saying "forgive their crimes" you're saying "Change massive amounts of laws and then forgive their crimes".
Two VERY seperate things.
Simply saying to forgive their crime and give them a visa implies under the current law, and that would be rewarding them.
I am saying "Change massive amounts of laws and then forgive their crimes". It would be insane to give amnesty without changing our policy as we would just refill the bucket with more.
When you consider operation wetback and many other accomplishments in the past it is possible to deport every illegal. Deportation is not the only solution nor did I ever claim it was the only solution. The only thing that is not a solution is amnesty or some form of it. Because it encourages more illegal immigration.It is COMPLETELY unrealistic to say that we will deport all the illegal immigrants in this country.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
