The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
This has been or was going to happen anyway. The mexicans don't want to come here anymore! I mean, we all saw the south park ep.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
The chance to do "Give everyone amnesty and we promise we'll get really serious on immigration enforcement to make sure we don't suffer this same fate a few decades later" was back in the 1980's
Amnesty was given.
Getting serious on immigration enforcement wasn't.
Three decades later, here we are.
Either Enforce THEN deal with those here, or if you want a compromise....Enforce and allow residence without benefits/citizenship until Triggers are met.
But simply "Amnesty and trust us, we really really really mean it this time that enforcement will happen" is a non starter. That cry of "Wolf" isn't being bought any longer
However, if we do two things we can greatly reduce the number of these illegal aliens: 1) greatly improve the border security, which can be done successfully with the right combination of physical presence and information presentation to all nations, and 2) put equal effort into preventing illegal aliens from receiving public benefits (other than life-saving emergency medical) and partaking in private transactions (such as employment, banking, etc.).
These are things we can easily do now.
The information presentation is hugely important, as communicating to the world that America will no longer tolerate illegal aliens in any way will greatly reduce the incentive to come here to violate American citizens.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.
This bill will hit a brick wall in the house. It isn't exactly a done deal.
He was good, our laws were being enforced but the usual people yelled "racism." The usual people were the same back then as today, liberals, Communist Party USA, National Council of la Raza. MEChA, Party of Liberation and Socialism, MALDEF, A*N*S*W*E*R* Coalition, etc.
Harold Ezzel was forced to resign.
Any time the federal government tries to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws, your going to hear the same people yelling racism. We see the same thing in Maricopa County, Arizona. You have an elected and popular Sheriff upholding the oath of office he took and is doing what the vast majority of Americans demand, enforce our laws and he's called a racist by the radical left.
When government stops lying to the American people and actually starts securing our borders and start enforcing our immigration laws that are on the books and you start hearing the word "racism" being yelled by the left, you know the government is doing their job.
