Amnesty Gang Throws Law-Abiders Under the Bus

The Right, Just, and Moral approach to this problem: 1. Secure the border. Finish the fence and track down the visa over-stayers. 2. Make it impossible for illegals to work. Mandatory E-Verify coupled with strict penalties for hiring illegals. Companies that discover that illegals have duped them (as happened at the factory I worked for when, in preparing the W-2s last year, the HR person found about a dozen people sharing the same SS#), should have to turn over all the contact information they have for those people to Immigration. ...

3. Deport every illegal that comes into contact with any level of government. It is INSANE to give drivers licenses to illegals. You find out that the applicant is illegal, take him/her into custody and start the deportation process. It doesn't have to be difficult and expensive. Transport them to the nearest border with their home country, usher them across, and let their own country deal with the problem.

4. Re-establish the principle that birthright citizenship applies only to people whose mothers where in the country legally when they were born -- as was historically the case in the US and as is currently the norm for nearly every other country on earth.

5. Re-vamp the legal immigration process to emphasize skills and the ability to be self-supporting. Require that immigrants are not eligible for any form of government aid. If they can't support themselves they need to go back to their home country. And as long as there are able-bodied people on welfare the US needs absolutely no unskilled workers whether permanent or temporary.

Mother of 4,
Outstanding! You'd have MY vote. Unfortunately, as Michelle points out in her numerous columns, we are being taken as CHUMPS by way too many politicos. From Obama on down, we're spending almost 4 TRILLION dollars a year FOR THIS?
President Obama and the bipartisan Gang of Eight in Washington who want to create a "pathway to citizenship" for millions of illegal aliens have sent a message loud and clear to those who follow the rules: You're chumps!

Have you patiently waited for months and years for the State Department and Department of Homeland Security to slog through your application? You're chumps!

Have you paid thousands of dollars in travel, legal and medical fees to abide by the thicket of entry, employment, health and processing regulations? You're chumps!

Have you studied for your naturalization test, taken the oath of allegiance to heart, embraced our...
