Congressional Hispanic Congress Releases Immigration Principles

Posted on Thu, Dec 06, 2012 at 16:20 pm

Last Wednesday the Congressional Hispanic Caucus held a press conference to release a nine-point list of principles they say must be part of any immigration overhaul. The first principle is a "path to permanent residency and eventual citizenship" for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently in the U.S. Other proposed principles include prioritizing family unity, permanent relief for DREAMers, strengthening the economy through STEM jobs, ensuring smart and reasonable enforcement, establishing a workable employment verification system, and providing legal avenues for foreign workers to fill gaps in the U.S. workforce. Read the principles.

It is time to send them all home, we have given amnesty in the past and they still come acrsos our boarders. Send them all back home and tell them there are legitimate channels to come to the United States of America and if they come any way but through the proper channels they will be sent back home once again.I know that there are some businesses that think they have to have illegal immigrants to sustain their businesses and the Republicans are listening to them, I also know that the Democrats are thinking if they are given amnesty once again that they will surely vote for them in the next election cycle.I really do not care what the political reasons are for wanting to give amnesty, I just think they should all be sent home and told that there is only one way to come to this country and that is through a illegal avenue. Put up a fence and shoot to defend the boarder. Provide worker visas if needed but keep track of the people that have received these visas. Make sure they are paying taxes on the money they earn as well as the employers are paying their share of taxes and health care. There are already laws on the books; they just need to be enforced. If the employers are hiring illegalís then shut down their plants until such time they comply with the laws and send anyone with phony papers back to where they came.

About 65% of illegals comimt either identity theft or identity fraud (serious crimes) and use a bogus social security card to obtain employment. To some small extent they pay taxes but they consume far more in services than they contribute at both the Federal and the State levels. That leaves 35% that are working for cash under the table. That IS tax evasion. 35% of 12 million illegals is a LOT of income tax and employment tax evasion which is another serious crime. Illegals make up about 3% of our total population and about 20% of our prison population. They are vastly more disposed to be criminal then either native born or legal naturalized citizens. I repeat, no law that stands between them and a better life gets respect from them.As far as the illegal immigrant contribution, why are the governors of all the borders states all in Washington this week begging for help. The border counties are all on the verge of bankruptcy and are rapidly becoming the worst places in America with crime, poverty and ignorance. It turns out the more illegals you have, the worse off you are. If illegals are making such a big contribution why aren't these counties in fat city? It turns out the only people who benefit are the illegals themselves and the rich elite who get subsidized cheap labor. All other Americans are shafted with lower wages and higher taxes.

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each and every time a comment is added I get four emails with the very same comment. Is there any way you are able to eliminate me from that service? Thanks! lululemon sale http://www.buylululemonoutlet.com/
