    Do I agree with this view. Absolutely.

    At one time hubby and I considered moving to Costa Rica. Everything about the place appealed to us. And then we found out you can't get a job there if you're not a native. You can go there and start a business and hire Ticos, but you can't BE hired for a job.

    So much for that that idea, BUT we respect Costa Rica's laws. We didn't go there and sneak into the country and thumb our noses at their rules.

    That's the part of illegal immigration I have a problem with. If the first thing you do when you enter another country is break the law, you have no respect for that country. You have thumbed your nose at their rules. You have placed your own personal wants and gains over the law of the land and you do not deserve to be in this country. If you have no respect for the law, how can you be trusted?

    Let's look around the world. There are probably more countries in economic or war-torn conflict than are not; dozens of countries with people who would sell their soul to leave where they at. Can you imagine if they all came to America? Millions of them. From Africa to the Middle East to Central and South America. How could we possible sustain such an influx? We can barely sustain what we have now.

    Immigration laws are there for a reason. Let's either enforce them or simply write them off the books and live with the consequences.

    This part I agree with:

    "...Let's look around the world. There are probably more countries in economic or war-torn conflict than are not; dozens of countries with people who would sell their soul to leave where they at.

    Absolutely.
    But the bit about people coming here thumbing their nose at our laws, not so much. People come here because they are desperate. We can be kind and sympathetic, and send them home. We don't need to regard them as somehow undeserving or criminal. Just desperate. Ad there but for the grace of God go you and I.

    @sensiblycenter Desperation or not, they are still breaking our laws by entering illegally. My wife came here 28 years ago and went through all the proper channels. Why should we be giving preferential treatment to lawbreakers when we still have thousands waiting patiently for their entrance visas?

    The problem is that we have not enforced our border laws the way that they need to be enforced. People who enter this Country illegally or over stay visas need to be deported. Our politicians have played games with the rules for years and it is hurting the Country. The other thing that needs to end is sanctuary cities. Cities that declare themselves as sanctuaries need to have all federal funding cut off and we will see how long they like that system.

    Unfortunately, all those States that have ''Sanctuary Cities'' vote for Democrats!! Look at CA for proof... Now, CA is giving ''illegals'' driver's licenses...so they can get to work and send their money BACK to their country...they don't want to become American Citizens, they come for the $$$$$...

    The problem is that you don’t understand that in order to keep people out you must keep your people in. Stop invading countries! Stop sending troops everywhere! Stop selling arms! Stop taking the food and natural resources from other nations! Stop exporting your pseudo-culture! Close your borders from everyone trying to go somewhere else to do business, especially American corporations, private and government, and then say to the world: you cannot come in!
    But then, who would create technology or new inventions, you?(Read history if you can read, foreigners made this country’s greatest inventions)? No! New inventions you? Not you! You are mad because some losers are coming to fight for low paying jobs. After all, if people had a career and great paying jobs, they’d likely hire “illegals” to do their lazy ass jobs… And never complain about their status… You see California is full of rich people hiring illegals. Do you get it? Look around who complain about illegal immigrants: losers that cannot get a decent job because they were not smart enough to succeed or demagogue politicians that take advantage of stupid people to get their votes. Get it?

    When were importing illegals (new voter base)... they go through customs (aka border patrol) where we sort out the ones with antibiotic-resistance TB, scabies, etc.

    Of course, that's only the ones who want their three hots and a cot plus a free ride to anywhere they want to go ... its the ones that don't seek out border patrol for their free welfare that you should be worried about!

    It used to be they deported the diseased or criminal. The rest seeking seeking free welfare are even more criminal and not deserving of any US citizen rights.

    If Americans have to ask "Why do we have immigration laws?"... we have more serious issues than the economy or illegal aliens or the up-coming elections in November. We have an epidemic of STUPID running rampant in this country.

    how about why have immigration laws when they are not enforced?

    its like we have laws yet reward those who break them as we can all see now.

    @David_Waldrop Well, I dont know if I agree with that 100%. Way back in the olden days, we had a thing called ACCOUNTABILITY. I think its time for a good old fashioned revival.

    I have yet to see a policy that Obama orchestrated that wasn't a failure! However, he's not giving up! He's working on another one that he thinks will solve some of the border issues and the insolvency of this country....

    "To help save the economy, the Government will announce next month that the Immigration Department will start deporting seniors (instead of illegals) in order to lower Social Security and Medicare costs. Older people are easier to catch and will not remember how to get back home."

    Yep, it does sound that it came right out of the horses arse......

    @S-N-A-F-U Interesting take on Obamaism. Keep in mind, the generation now considered "Seniors" are old school and still believe in an "Eye for an Eye". Seniors still believe in the right to bare arms, the right to protect themselves/family/property, and have very little to lose compared to some 20 or 30-something immigration officer with a wife and a new baby in the home.

    Junk Food For Thought.

    The border designates sovereignty of a nation. Enforcing border laws is essential for security, population and disease control. Anyone who can't figure that out is beyond help. People who engage in the narrative that it is discriminatory are correct but not in a xenophobic way. Most countries don't allow people to enter who will destroy their economies or cultural values. The "refugee" status is one of the exclusions to this rule and it is fairly recent in world history due to the presence of the UN.

    yes there is a difference between immigrants and illegal aliens,one chose to break in the other gave us all the bird and kiss off to our laws.

    should have read ones chose to follow the law the other showed no respect or care for our law. yet we reward the law breaker.

    No matter how one slices it, immigration has to be organized. I think the Ellis Island concept was the best way to go about it, immigrants all came to a central point to be processed.

    that was before when those coming was not trying to hurt the country and leech off tax payers.

    we should not let in any legal or not who will be a burden of any kind.if they cost us remove them.

    @whynot so you point to citizens the same as illegals?

    that system was made for citizens in need. comparing citizens to illegal aliens is a fail.
  • #76

    The way Ellis Island could work with today's technology:

    1. The would be immigrant would go to his local US consulate and apply.
    2. He would have to show he was in good health.
    3. He would have to show no criminal record.
    4. He would have to show he would no be likely to become a public charge.
    5. He would have to show that if rejected he had the resources to go back to his homeland.
    6. Then he would be issued a visa.
    7. Then he would come to a central processing point in the US where all of this would be verified.
    8. If he passed he could enter the US as a legal alien.
    No quotas, no special visas of any kind.

    That's the way Ellis Island worked. I thought it was a good way to handle immigration.

    We are a sovereign nation. Our borders define that. No country that surrounds us is as lack as us. But it will soon change, the flood of illegals will cause crime to rise and legal unemployment to rise. The cdc has already stated that we are not prepared for the diseases that are coming.

    Here is a an appropriate followup to Mr. Denvil's excellent article--

    "The Catholic Church—through the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration—both paved the road for Barack Hussein Obama’s ultimate takeover of Free West society and continues to actively enable the Fundamental Transformation of America by sinking the US in a tsunami of illegal aliens.

    In coming to Obama’s aid in erasing forever America’s borders, the bishops sold the USA out, including its Catholics, for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver.

    In biblical terms, Obama and the Catholic bishops—who both birthed his progress to the seat of power and back him on his Fundamental Transformation mission—are in in league with the devil. The certain-to-come protestations of the bishops should fall on the same deaf ears they use to shun all pleas of mercy from Americans overwhelmed by invaders in their home towns and cities.

    How dare these phony paragons of the pulpit ascribe to our Savior the manufactured invasion of America by millions of U.S. government made-to-order ‘refugees’?

    It’s a crock that the bishops are saving illegal aliens rushing the U.S. border based on lofty claims of altruism or charity, when they are doing it for power and filthy lucre:

    In the case of the Catholic Charities Diocese of Galveston,$15,549,078 in federal grants from Health and Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance”.(Eric Odom, Liberty News July 10, 2014)

    “Last year, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Fort Worth received $350,000 from Department of Homeland Security for “citizenship and education training” with a program description of “citizenship and immigration services.”

    Between September 2010 and September 2013, the Catholic Charities of Dallas received $823,658 from the Department of Homeland Security for “Citizenship Education Training” for “refugee and entrant assistance.”

    It is no coincidence that the vice president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is his Eminence Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and that the Conference Treasurer is the Most Reverend Kevin J. Farrell, Bishop of Dallas.

    In fact, the Obama administration was bankrolling America’s churches back in 2010, and the tens of millions were flowing into church coffers to prepare for the invasion of America now underway.

    Nor do protestants get a free ride in the bankrolled by Obama category with the Baptists taking government grants:From Dec 2012 to January 2014, Baptist Child & Family Services received $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program”.(Liberty News)

    Now infamous for his ‘I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone’ boast, the one fact Obama plays close to his chest is that he’s got some Catholic bishops and Baptist pastors in his back pocket.

    The Catholic compliance that propelled Obama from the streets as a malcontent community organizer to the Oval office begins and continues with the Catholic Church." <Quoted in part for the following URL>

    You made that so clear even a leftie could understand. He wants to create chaos.
    I think he is pushing his illegal activity, daring Americans to impeach him. The democrats may get the communist state they have longed for.

    I think Ron Paul warned in the last republican presidential debates....that Americans shouldn't be so quick to put up fences around their boarder...because it's more likely in the future....that they will be used to keep us in...than to keep anyone else out...something to think about

    17 Americans Die everyday at the hands of an illegal. 28% of all convicts in US prisons are illegal aliens, and another 17% are their anchors. 69% of all anchors do not graduate from high school and 72 % are receiving taxpayer funded assistance. These are a few of the reasons why our current immigration laws must be strictly enforced and all illegals deported. Our schools are not providing a quality education to our children due to all the "special needs" for the illegals and their anchors. It's more about self preservation and protecting your children's future. Every issue facing the US citizenry leads right straight back to illegal aliens. Every single issue. Prison populations, jobs, lack of quality education, gang violence, huge numbers of FoodStamps & medical, Housing and all other federally funded programs, numerous types of crimes, including child molestation, rape, fraud, murder, drugs, kidnapping, robbery, DUI deaths and maiming of entire American families, to name a few, all violent crime is extremely high in areas of large illegal populations. They are only in the shadows when they are waiting to stab you in the back! Please do not take anyone's word for anything, please do your own research. Their is Imformation out there that is truly terrifying about the cost In American lives, funds, and uncermountable damage to America!
