What is YOUR opinion on the new Immigration bill (Amnesty) being sold?
I don't believe in amnesty. We've been down that road before and look where it took us.
No amnesty!!! If someone is here ilegally, they should be sent back to their own country, and not allowed back in here, period, the end. There are legal channels for people that want to move here from other counrties. If they dont want to follow those laws, I have have to question what other laws they will ignore. Come here legally, learn the language, become a productive, tax paying member of our society, or stay the **** out !!!
This was a silly poll. Why did you bother with more than one option?
1) build a wall 20' high & 10' wide from the Gulf to the Pacific
2) once done, have a huge publicity campaign (in spanish) advising that all illegals have 2 months to liquidate any & all assets as best they can & cross the border. No questions asked by US officials.
3) anyone attempting to illegally cross the wall.... shoot first ask questions later. Sorry amigo.
4) After that 2 month date any in the US illegally has all possessions confiscated and is placed in jail until such time as they can be relocated to the other side of the nearest border.
5) implement a new expedited work visa plan so that anyone who wants to work in the US can quickly & easily apply for the visa & work here. BUT, you don't get to vote, you pay taxes, you must report your location at all times, you can not own property, you get limited healthcare (part of what your taxes will go towards), your children born in the US are NOT US citizens (no more anchor babies) and you can only remain in the US for a limited time on this visa (though you can quickly reapply for a renewal). You can be working towards permanent citizenship while on the visa. If you have any serious criminal record you get can't get the visa. If you break any serious laws in the US while on a visa it's revoked and you can NEVER get another or apply for US citizenship.
6) English is to become the official US language. You MUST learn or be working towards learning English if you are here on the migrant worker visa. All official US business is conducted in English.
7) Kalifornia is detached from the North American continent via a chain of explosions planted in the various fault lines & allowed to float out to sea. We kick the state out of the Union and send all the Libtards to live there free of guns & with all the lack of common sense they want.
If you like that you should see the rest of my presidential platform!!
For a group of people who advocate strictly following the Constitution, it seems many of us forget that the 14th amendment states that anyone born here is a citizen.
Bound to be strong opinions on this one. However, taking the emotions out of it, one fact remains:
WE'RE NEVER GOING TO GET THE ILLEGAL ALIENS TO LEAVE!
That being said, let's find a way to get them to pay something to be here and to pay taxes, social security, etc. Regardless of which side of the argument you're on, today they get all of the benefits of citizenship without any of the financial burdens.
Running, ducking & covering!
It's all relative.
This is a way to show the silliness from our government leaders and to let everyone have a little fun.
Besides you might find someone on this site who might be in favor, NOT.......
Just have some fun with it. Ok, Tinker for President!!!!!!!!!!
One of the first things we need to do is get rid of the baby anchor law. We are the only country that has that stupid law....cross boarder drop kid and you are here to stay
By the anchor baby law you mean the 14th Amendment?
Note, the 14th Amendment is also why so many illegals have the "rights" they do. Because it applies due process of law to all persons living here, not simply citizens.
Ohh Hail no!!! "here congrats, lets reward you for breaking the law and give you a free pass ahead of all other legal immigrants who have been for years for entrance into this country of ours"....
I don't think so!!!!!!
Next step: Fix the tax and SS system.
Should I be devil's advocate again on this subject? oh...why not....
What is wrong with this? Most, if not all, major concerns are being addressed. They have to pay into the system. They have to wait in line behind people who went the legal way to get a green card. They have to leave the country for one year. They have to learn English.
I don't support Illegal invaders....Build the damn fence secure and secure the boarder.
Now i realize we can just pick them up and boot them out...well not yet....but if someone is arrested and their citizen ship is no legal take them the other side of the wall and let them out...
It make me F'n sick that these illegals are getting almost free if not free health care and medicine while my grandparents have to pay $700 a month in supplemental insurance to cover what medicare does, and F'n illegals get the sh!t for almost free....What the hell is wrong with this country Illegals get better care than out Veterans, senior citizens etc....
The reality is, they're already here. More are coming every day. I don't have a solution.
As long as our president and congress aren't willing to act, to do something, it's not gonna change.
Some people don't want them to leave (note statement above about president and congress) and those people are blocking true reform efforts. Until those people change, nothing else will change.
I received this e-mail today. It won't change anything either, but it makes interesting reading...

I second that...Did ya know that most of our local Hospitals are on the brink of financial hardship because they HAVE to pay for the illegals healthcare...
I have a friend who has to pay increased insurance rates because he filed a claim for an accident that totalled his new car. Why did he file a claim? The a**hole that hit him was DUI, illegal, no license and no insurance. Now my friends rates went up 20%!!! We all pay higher prices for insurance due to illegal, uninsured drivers.
Let me start by saying this: My wife is not from this country. We are *still* in the process of going through all the headaches, paperwork, money, and redtape to finish it up legally.
It is a pain in the arse.
That said...I am STILL against this amnesty stuff. Kick 'em out. Shoot 'em if they try to sneak in again. Period.
I would like it to be a bit *easier* for those of us working within the system to do so, however.
