Man, are you tired of hearing this repeated nonsense about how our immigration system is broken? Because, our immigration system is NOT, repeat NOT, broken.
Our immigration system lets in approximately 1 million LEGAL immigrants a year. That is more than all the countries of the world added up, every year. It is working fine, too fine for some. There is an argument that legal immigration should be limited (reduced) to replacement level.
If anything is broken it is the oaths of offices taken by senators, congressmen, presidents and every other sworn official down to the local sheriff and city council member who will NOT enforce our immigration laws.
The southern border is a sieve. The Border Patrol is being instructed to not aggressively patrol the border.
Internal DHS offices are not, repeat NOT, picking up illegals being held in local jails. The worst result of that is in the news now with killings, murders and rapes by illegal alien repeat offenders. But, it has been going on for years.
The answer to our immigration woes is simple: Secure the border. Build a fence where necessary. Patrol more often where necessary. Send the message that if you do come, you will be stopped. Right now the message is “come on in.”
Cut off the jobs magnet. Most illegals don’t come to rob, rape, kill and sell drugs, many do but not most. Most illegals come to work because the country they are fleeing doesn’t hold out the promise self improvement like America. Use E-Verify for every job in the country.
Cut off welfare. Cut off food stamps. End all government assistance to illegal aliens. Zip, zero, nada.
End the preposterous “anchor baby” nonsense. Do NOT give citizenship to a child born to an illegal alien in our country. It is NOT in the law. The dopes who refer to the 14th Amendment of the Constitution are lying. But, to make it clear, congress should pass a law making it clear. Any child born to an illegal alien in our country is NOT a citizen or legal resident.
These simple steps can be taken easily and send a discouraging message to those wanting to come into America illegally. Right now the opposite message is being sent.
The reasons the law isn’t being enforced cover the gamut of human greed and corruption. Number 1 reason is new customers to replace the Baby Boomers who are leaving the economy at the rate of 10,000 a day. There are other reasons, but that is number one and something all the political elites want, regardless of party.
Illegal immigration can be stopped. To stop it, begin with honoring the oath of office.
If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law. — Winston Churchill
