Maywood, CA, August 2006
Obama’s “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” consists of giving benefits and amnesty to unskilled aliens in exchange for votes for himself; and then sneering at Republicans and calling them “racists” if they don’t agree.
Before we can offer solutions for Immigration, we need to understand what the problems are:
- Everybody in the world wants to come to America. If life in their native country were better, they would stay there. They want freedom from tyrannical Socialist/Communist leaders and an opportunity to work and create their own American Dream.
- We have no idea how many illegals are here. But there are at least 15-20 million. Once we give them Amnesty, millions more will flood in.
- Obama has no intention of securing the border. There is no border enforcement now and there never will be any. He has ordered ICE to accept the word of any illegal and let him stay if he claims he is entitled to the Obama’s unconstitutional DREAM Act Executive Orders. ICE even releases over 70% of OTM’s (Other than Mexicans, mainly Muslim Militants) alleging the native country won’t accept them back
- Unskilled Illegal Immigrants are bankrupting States with Sanctuary Cities such as Maywood, California. California is already broke, largely because it has over 30 Sanctuary Cities where residents are taking benefits but giving nothing back.
- Unskilled immigrants will continue taking benefits for housing, health care, education and California SSDI etc. throughout most of their lives and will not pay back expenses Americans have incurred on their behalf. (Though they will vote for Obama!)
- “Family Reunification” permits each unskilled illegal, once legalized, to sponsor his spouse and children, his parents, step parent(s) and adoptive parent. They, in turn, can sponsor their children, parents, dependent siblings etc. Obama’s January 6, 2013 order just made family reunification easier and quicker. Everyone is entitled to taxpayer benefits. But no one is held responsible for providing financial support for anyone they sponsor.
- No country on earth can feed, clothe and educate so many unskilled and uneducated people; teach them our Constitution, our language and our culture; and help them assimilate.
- Obama generates hatred for America. He demonizes “white people;” alleges they are “racists;” encourages unskilled illegals to hate America and Americans; pretend that white Americans stole America from them; never learn our language; show no respect for our Constitution or our flag; nor any respect or gratitude to those who are working and paying taxes to help them. In short, Obama is importing unskilled alien foreigners to loot the prosperity of this country and never assimilate; thus creating two countries.
- As their numbers grow, America will become exactly like Mexico, poor and corrupt.
- Giving status to 15-20 million illegals ignores the needs of 24+ Million unemployed Americans.
When we loan money to our own students, it is in the form of a Student Loan which they cannot cancel in bankruptcy and which must be paid back. Why should illegals be treated any differently?
A fair and reasonable solution is to give every illegal and every student/traveller visa applicant a fingerprint/photo MasterCard into which all benefits will be paid. MasterCard already successfully tracks, and prevents fraud on, billions of transactions for millions of users worldwide. And it can readily keep track of how much a recipient receives and prevent duplication and fraud.
If someone overstays, the card will show it and they can be deported. If someone is illegal, all the public assistance s/he receives will be treated like a student loan and recorded on the card. When s/he starts earning, fixed amounts will be deducted until s/he pays it all back. And s/he won’t be allowed to bring in any relatives until s/he has repaid all s/he “borrowed” from the taxpayer and demonstrate s/he can support the father/mother/grandparent s/he is sponsoring.
Our Illegals’ Support Fund will be replenished. And we won’t go broke supporting illegals.
Once an illegal knows s/he has to pay it back; s/he wont borrow wastefully by producing babies, using the health system or getting housing assistance. And instead of becoming a drag on society, s/he will learn our capitalist ways and start climbing the ladder to achieve the American Dream.
