I would like to respond to Immigration Daily's comment piece from today. While we
have all heard the statistics (no one really knows how many illegal aliens are here), we are certainly in agreement that
there are millions of people here without
legal authority. Several people, myself included, have asked the question
as to what happens after the next amnesty.
So far I have not seen a response to that question. So again I ask, what
will deter the next wave of illegals after the
ones who are here are given permanent residence? We did the amnesty thing
in 1986 and were assured by
the pro-immigration forces, as well as the government that this would take
care of the problem of knowing who was
here and would "bring people out of the shadows". Obviously that didn't
work since we have more illegals now than we
did then, at least according to the estimates given. What will be different
about this one? I am not trying to be
argumentative, I seriously want to understand why people believe that
rewarding people for breaking the law is a
Can anyone honestly say that we will then have the illegal problem solved
or will that it be necessary to do an amnesty
every ten years or so? If that is the case there is no reason to spend
money trying to protect our borders because everyone
who gets in illegally will eventually be rewarded with a green card. It is
only the people who go through the legal channels
who run the risk of not getting their permanent residence.
Is there anyone out there who will address my question seriously?
I do agree that it is ridiculous to keep nuclear families apart for years,
if a husband or wife is a permanent resident
there should be some mechanism in place to have their immediate families be
with them while they work their
way through the maze that is BCIS.
