You don't want illegals deported?
No. Never have wanted them rounded up in raids and deported.
If they are caught crossing then they need to be sent back before they ever get a foothold........ if you ever actually bothered to read you would know that. I want the laws on the books enforced - which includes not hiring illegals. I want the fence that was funded under Bush built. There is a reason Arizona has the lowest illegal immigration - the voters here passed laws making it very difficult for you to live in this state if you are here illegally. Those laws passed with 60% of legal Hispanics voting for those laws. It is a falacy that legal Hispanics want illegals given amnesty - in fact they resent the fact they did it the right way and these people have come in illegally and are getting welfare and other benefits.
Every time our government starts talking amnesty more Mexicans stream into the USA thinking they can get in on amnesty. Amnesty increases illegals.
Are you aware that right now the US Government is using OUR tax dollars to fly children of illegals into the USA from Latin countries? This sort of puts the big lie to we can't expect them to go back and leave their kids... nope, they left their kids to come here illegally and we are paying to have their kids brought to them here in this country...
Did you know that our government made a deal with the Sinola drug cartel to allow them to bring drugs into this country unmolested as long as they agree to drop the dime on other drug cartels?
Do you have a clue why the big companies want illegals to come into the USA and work for lower wages - putting more Americans out of work - when we already have 32% real unemployement in this country among our own citizens... they want them because the way OCare was written they can work them 40 hours or more a week, don't have to give them benefits or pay the fines to the government if they don't provide health insurance... Amnesty is the final disaster for this country and all of our ways of life...
Look at who the government just hired to take over programming for OCare - which is being paid for out of our tax dollars. They hired a company who only hires foreign programmers for a much lower cost than American programers... so we are footing the bill for this companies owners, board, stock holders to get even richer and the jobs are going to foreigners because they will work cheap... So much for this crap Obama is spewing about income equality, eh........ it's all baloney......
Since we seem to need farm workers (thought the drought is making this questionable) then return to the tried and formerly true bracero program. The workers come here on a work visa signed out to the employer who is responsible for making certain they return to Mexico at the end of the season.. Their family stays in Mexico - he can send money home as he sees fit since under bracero the employers provide housing.
If a person want to immigrate to the USA all countries are given equal opportunity and they have to have a trade we need in this country, an education and/or proof of financial ability to survive without welfare benefits...... every other country has this requirement - it's time we do the same and hold to it.
and no amnesty... if they want citizenship and ability to vote, etc... return to Mexico and come here legally.
