Look, I understand very clearly that liberals feel that we should just fling open our borders and allow anyone that can get here into the country. Unfortunately, that’s not the law. And unfortunately, the woman that is slated to become the next attorney general in the country doesn’t understand the law.
Loretta Lynch was testifying up on Capitol Hill the other day and was asked whether or not illegal aliens should be allowed to work in this country. She answered that they should. And that, I’m sorry Loretta, is totally wrong. This is where the left veers totally out of control looking for votes.
The major problem I think I have with illegal aliens (and while they are “undocumented” as the left calls them, they are also “illegal”, which is what I will continue to call them), is that they are criminals. They have come to this country illegally. That have snuck in and hid. If you tried to do the same thing to get into their country, you’d be thrown into a Mexican prison and left to rot. By the way, I don’t think they should be thrown in a jail and left to rot. I think they ought to be deported. But neither side in this debate wants that.
The conservatives and business folks out there see illegals as a tremendous group of low-wage workers that won’t bitch because they can’t. They have to remain hidden, and therefore, can be taken advantage of (also not the least bit right). The left wants to grant the citizenship just for showing up, so they can get more votes…the only reason the left feels that way. And you know what that means to illegals?
Nothing is going to get done to hold them legally responsible for the crimes they have committed.
The left and the right both agree that they should stay in this country. The question is just how. The right believes that if you grant amnesty, then it opens the floodgates because there will be amnesty up the road, and you find yourself in the same position in 10 or 15 years. The left believes if you put any stringent conditions on these people, you lose all the hard work they’ve put in picking tomatoes, cleaning houses, etc. for the past 10-15 years. Either way, you aren’t going to find them leaving. Nobody apparently wants that.
I’ve said for years that there is a solution. You make it known (and include in the bill that it’s the last time you’re going to do this). These people can stay here. They need to pay a $50,000 fine which goes straight to paying down the federal debt. They must enter the armed services or some other federal system of employment for a period of five years. After that time, they are free to apply for citizenship provided they’ve done a couple of things. First remained crime free. Second, they have mastered the English language and use it as their first language. Third, they are gainfully employed. Fourth they are not eligible for any federal or state subsidies like food stamps or welfare for a period of 10 years. And fifth, they are not allowed to vote in local, state, or national elections. Also, the bill says, anyone caught sneaking into this country is going to be thrown in jail for a year, living on bread and water in tents in the Arizona or New Mexico desert, and then deported.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
