The problem of Illegal Immigration
I live in a border state and you can imagine that this issue is one that is very important to me personally. I believe that while we need immigrants to continue to grow, We expect that people wishing to immigrate do so properly. We are a nation of laws and they are supposed to be respected by everyone. Our Federal Government has allowed our borders to remain soft and we are paying the price for this indifference today. All we should ask of anyone is come here legally, Then all of these issues are a moot point. Anyone crossing our border without proper documentation is breaking the law, period end of story. The reasons are irrelevant to why they are breaking the law, Justice is blind to all reasons except the facts. Our Federal Government does deport many people every year but still the Illegals cross in thousands every month.
Nobody should expect to catch everyone crossing the border as that would be impossible. We must finish the border fence, add more agents and use our modern technology to help secure our border. I’ve heard people say that would cost us money better spent elsewhere, I would say securing our border is worth every penny we spend. The cost in just not having to return people from wherever they came from or keeping the criminals out of our Country. We also need a secure border to continue to make it difficult for drug cartels to import their product. They have killed so many people on the Mexican side of the border that you would think Mexico would be also asking for a more secured border. We have simply ignored this problem for many years and no solution will please everybody.
We know the Democrats and the progressive leftist would like to see Amnesty for all Illegals so they can get the votes. They paint anyone who supports deporting Illegals and securing the border as Racist, Paranoid and etc. Business has used Illegals for cheap labor and that has kept them to continue to donate to Republicans to talk like they want change but do nothing. This is why we must hold them all to the flame to get our border secured and to enforce the laws we already have. We don’t need new laws if all the current ones where being used to fix this problem. It’s illegal for anyone to cross the border, its illegal federally for them to apply for a job and illegal for the business to hire them. The cost to the American taxpayer is just to high for us to continue on this same path.
We must hold our elected officials to fulfill the oath to protect our Nation
