Posted: Mon May 22, 2006 9:36 pm Post subject: Illegal Immigration...
What are your feelings about the illegal immigration issue that is currently being discussed. I feel that it is an important one for the country and some must be done. Do you consider it to be an issue? What do you think of the presidents plan? What are your views?
I guess nobody cares about illegal immigration. I'll let you know my views on it then...
I'm not a really big fan of the presidents plan. I think you need to hire more border troops and even bring in the national guard is fine. But efforts should be made to making a formidable wall. A wall is the most effective way to keep illegals out. I also don't like the guest worker program. Although the president says it is not amnesty, it is. Crack down on the workers who higher illegal aliens so the illegals don't have any jobs. If they dont have jobs then they will have to go home. Once home then they can get in line and commence the process of coming here legally.
Also, work should be put into the process of legalizing someone. If this can be done quickly and safely it will help ease the pain of the lack of illegal works. I also think that if there were no illegal workers, the jobs that no americans will work, the pay will go up because they need workers. If the pay goes up then it will attract america workers which would provide more jobs.

There is probably no other more dangerous, more threatening issue to our sovereignty, our security, and this entire country.
The President is part of the problem, as he is only pandering to the epic crisis. Most of D.C. is no longer representing Americans. They are driven by greed, votes, control and power.
Illegal immigration is costing American's many billions over and above what the illegals contribute.
It is choking off our schools, our already over crowded class rooms, our jails, our social services, driving down our wages, driving up taxes, using up our very limited resources, creating titanic fraud and crime, and leave a landscape full of America victims of crime commited by illegal aliens.
$Billions$ of American dollars are being sent out of this country into mexico by remittance. As a matter of fact, Mexico is making more off of remittance than they profit from their oil industry.
Not to mention the 600 plus tons of drugs being smuggled into America annually.
For example, the majority of LAPDs most wanted violent criminals are illegal aliens. Many that have already been deported multiple times. This invasion of illegal aliens is no longer limited or isolated to California, Texas or Arizona.
It has now spread nationwide in a big way. Some credible sources now estimate that upwards of 30 million illegals are in country.
Our borders have not only become a national disgrace, but now a national security nightmare.
