Burly, I totally concur. I WELCOME LEGAL IMMIGRATION!
It's the pandering to illegals that really gets to me, the enablement, the "we'll just forget how you got here since you're doing dirty work" mentality that really annoys me.

Thanks Taps -- and sorry to not respond sooner.
Guess I haven't been paying attention to my comments section.

I think you'll agree that we welcome LEGAL immigration. Its not xenophobic to say, "please obey our laws!"

Jane,

Excellent post.  Some in authority seem to have forgotten the law of the land for the sake of the vote.  I agree with you completely.

Happy Easter!

Of course you know nothing swells my ego like having some advice. I haven't any. When illegal has become legal in some instances it may be illegal to make anything former legal I give up. Keep it up. I could only read the first paragraph but go girl go.... It is okay to get bing blasted mad!

Great post, JanesOpinion
Well thought out.  You seem to take on the issue from every angle.    Large taxes to the employers of illegal aliens seems to be the thing that might start to turn the tide towards a reasonable solution.

kingmi, I'm glad you have peace for now. I trust it lasts!

Janes'O, I thank you for your committment to this issue. We are all either
very pro- or con-amnesty because of what it will do to future generations of immigrants and Americans.  But the real issue here -- and I think requiring English learning is a good requirement -- is the border.  I think the congress is going to come back and make the border the issue, pass it, and get on with the election.  My heart is at rest for now.

And how and why did this debacle get so danged out of hand???
Why did we not simply enforce the laws already in the books?  I'm sure it was all politics. Which I so totally hate.

Blanche, I think you're so very right!

If the people who hire illegal workers were penalized, the problem would melt away in a heart beat and fewer illegals would pour over the border.

Well said, sistah! And yes, talk about one heck of a complex issue.

JanesOpinion,

I think there's a lot to this complex equation, more than I fully understand, including the employers, the small and large companies who hire illegal aliens without checking for papers and paying substandard wages, lowering the wage pool and safety requirements for all.

If we are truly going to address this whole complex issue in a rational manner, the "guest worker" program makes no sense to me, why allow illegal aliens into the country, only as long as they have an employer, whom I sure they dare not question. That sounds like a form of indentured servitude, which does not benefit the American worker in any way.

To really stop and enforce illegal aliens trafficking across the border, it seems to me, that the employers who subvert the laws should be economically penalized, that would stop it PDQ.

Amen, Writersblok, Amen. What does this tell people if we allow
this huge group of people to break the laws?  What message does this send?  A horridly conflicting, confusing and chaotic message -- that's what.

Yeah, Burly, I hope it bites them in the butt.
Thanks, as always, for commenting!

CD -- Ted Kennedy (and his ilk) is drinking his bathwater.
It's completely descpicable that he is making such a comparison, and American blacks should be very offended.

I don't think
lawlessness should be rewarded with citizenship. What kind of message would that send to our kids that it is ok to break the law as long as you have a good reason?

Mexicans trying to reclaim their native lands

Their native lands???  Were they living up here then or were the Spanish dons occupying the area???

This whole bubbling cauldron of public outrage over Mexicans trying to reclaim their native lands is going to boil over and scald somebody and our politicians don't seem to get it!

Janes.....

I hear people like Bill Richardson and Ted Kennedy compare this to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s......

It's not even close........The people involved were citizens.....their ancestors were brought here against their will...they didn't sneak across our borders in the dead of night......a civil war was fought to give them their equality....but the constitutional rights had been given at a level less than those of the majority. 

It was Americans asking for equality.....asking to inforce laws already in place...........not to ignore laws already in place........In the fashion that the "undocumented workers here with less than a legal status"
