It is important to understand Obama's agenda when it comes to Immigration. His immigration goal is to "fundamentally-change America" by flooding America with illegal's that we cannot deport and burden America on every level; economic, social, faith-issues, schools systems, welfare systems, employment and more. His goal is the destruction of all that is good about America. He has been devaluing America, step-by-step, since he became President and will continue to damage us in incremental stages if we continue to allow him the freedom to do so. He is a sociopath and a pathological liar. Only the most ignorant (ill-informed) or completely stupid (unable to comprehend) do not know these things about him. Give in to a sociopath and pay a huge price. Believe a pathological liar and you can expect bigger and bolder lies. Give an untrustworthy man the benefit of the doubt and he will laugh at you and take more and more advantage of you. You cannot negotiate with a man whose only goal is your demise.
Congressional DemocRATS have convinced Congressional Republicans of a lie. DemocRATS started talking about the need for immigration reform. They kept talking about it and kept talking about it. What DemocRATS mean by "reform" is to bypass our immigration laws and grant amnesty (the legal right to be and stay in the USA) to millions who have crossed our border in violation of our laws. They have finally admitted that. Notice, however, they did not admit that until Republicans started talking about the need for immigration reform.
News flash! We do not need immigration reform. We need immigration law enforcement.
The only reason we need reform is that Congress has ignored immigration laws for so long that we have more illegal immigrants than the system is designed to take care of.
Let me put it this way. Ask any DemocRAT to name any existing immigration law that needs to be reformed. Their only answer is "Amnesty for everyone!" I seriously doubt any DemocRAT has read any significant amount of the immigration policies of our country. They passed Obamacare without reading it. Lazy sloths. However, in defense of a majority of DemocRATS, many of them cannot read well enough to comprehend more than the content of a political hand-held sign. I understand that. They all get paid enough to hire a literate person to explain the meaning of printed words to them. They won't even do that.
Anyway, back to the subject at hand -- Immigration. The problem is not a big one. It is not difficult to solve. Here is all that needs to be done. Enforce this one existing immigration law.
"The penalties for hiring an illegal immigrant for first offenders is no less than $250 and no more than $2,000 per employee. The second offense is no less than $2,000 and nor more than $5,000 per employee." Source: http://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/penalties-for-employers-hiring-illegal-immigrants.html
In five years, 95% of our immigration problems will be solved. The 5% who beat the system, good for them! We will let them stay as long as they do not get caught.
Do you know how many people it would take in the USA to solve the immigration problem in five years? One. Pay me $100,000 per year and my business expenses. I will send a letter to 10 business per day stating that I may be coming by in approximately three months to validate the citizenship status of every or some employees of that business. I will inform the employer that their penalty per illegal employed is between $250 and $5,000.00. I will show up, by appointment. Employers who do not cooperate will be shut down until they do cooperate.
Republicans need to stop talking about immigration reform and start talking about immigration enforcement. It is not hard. It only takes one person!
What about the person who wants to become an American citizen? Great. Go through the existing immigration process like any normal and decent law-abiding person. It is not that hard.
We do not need immigration reform and the Republicans need to shout that loud and quit speaking as if there is something wrong with our immigration process. What we need is enforcement of our immigration laws and that is all we need.
