It looks like to me he has lost sleep.
I'm going to give your response a lot of thought. Thanks!
It seems to me, from my reading of the founders, that they would have offered amnesty too. It would have been a profound mistake for them to have not to. Lincoln recognized this importance after the end of the civil war, when he believed the southern rebels should all be given amnesty.
I agree with having better border security. I have been looking up how REagan felt about his amnesty for illegals, and while all you say is true about the promise of border control, it appears Reagan was still fundamentally against this void millions of illegal Americans find themselves in. "Reagan "knew that it was not right for people to be abused," Simpson says. "Anybody who's here illegally is going to be abused in some way, either financially [or] physically. They have no rights." Peter Robinson, a former Reagan speechwriter, agrees. "It was in Ronald Reagan's bones — it was part of his understanding of America — that the country was fundamentally open to those who wanted to join us here." Reagan said as much himself in a televised debate with Democratic presidential nominee Walter Mondale in 1984. "I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and lived here, even though sometime back they may have entered illegally," he said."
Yes, and these millions that have lived here most of their lives, have no line to stand in. The government says they have to go back to the country their parents took them from, Columbia, Guatemala, etc.. And only then can they apply, and have to wait 3 years or so. I wouldn't want my kids in that situation.
I'm not sure that no amnesty will decrease the number of illegals taking jobs. That horse is out of the barn, as they say. And, I have read, that illegals, like any other consumer create jobs as well as take them. Rick Perry has appreciated them quit a bit and encourages them. As for the Keystone oil pipeline, the number of jobs they are promising are exaggerated, and since when has the GOP encouraged UNION jobs?
The things is, so many of those millions are citizens in every way, they grew up here, went to school here, and pay taxes on many things, and would like to pay federal taxes too, and be full citizens.
I have never heard that side, and that does make a difference. I will do some research on that today. Thanks.
Did Reagan regret his decision?
Since when have executive orders become lawless? Bush issued twice as many.
Reagan gave millions amnesty too, and the world didn't come to an end. Some people even think Reagan was a good president.
