However, if they were legalized and granted permanent residency there would be a statistically insignificant population of illegal immigrants in the U.S. and those that are here could start actually lobbying to work for jobs paying above minimum wage.
I have a question for all those that support granting amnesty for all the illegals.
Once we go ahead and make the current group of people here illegally no longer illegal but make them citizens or some other label than what do we do 10 years from now when we have a whole new group of people here illegally. Do we go ahead and just make them legal as well. Do we continue you this forever, basically just make this an open border country. There is no country in the world that has open borders as far as I know and there is probably a reason for it. No country can support a never ending flow of low skill or no skill workers. Once we let this group of people stay here and as they as some of you are claiming can now demand a higher wage why would companies not want to hire all the folks that come in to the country the day after we grant this current group amnesty.
Also do you honestly think that giving millions of people here illegally amnesty will not give the people contemplating risking crossing the border one more reason to go for it. How will that not accelerate the problem and create an even larger illegal population.
President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
