SOTU Response Part 5: Illegal Immigration AKA Criminal Aliens
January 26, 2011 | Tags: state of the union
Obama, in the state of the union, continues to beat the drum of the DREAM act, granting thousands of illegal immigrants, or as I like to call them, criminal aliens, full on citizenship.
I don’t care how someone came to this country, or how bright you are. If you break the law, you are a criminal, plain and simple.
Once again, the government attempts to deal with a symptom, instead of dealing with the hard problem: that it is WAY too difficult to emigrate here legally. The entire legal immigration system needs a complete overhaul. In this day and age, we should be able to grant, at least a temporary citizenship, right at the border crossing or airport. We should be able to do background checks on the spot, and we should make it really easy for people to emigrate legally into this country.
This country was built by immigrants. Legal immigrants. It has never been so difficult to come here legally, which is one of the reasons why so many come here illegally.
Fix the system: make it easier for people to come here legally, then send everyone back through this new system. I didn’t hear one peep on that from the SOTU, but I did hear all sorts of rewards for those who break the law.
Hmm. Rewarding criminals and penalizing the innocent. Doesn’t seem like America to me.
