Our Position On Immigration

America was established by immigrants and has always been a nation of immigrants. Over the years, millions of people have come here in the hope that in America, you can make it if you try. Each successive wave of immigrants has contributed to our country's rich culture, economy and spirit. Like the immigrants that came before them, today's immigrants will shape their own destinies while enriching our country.

Nonetheless, our current immigration system and policies has been broken for far too long. We need comprehensive immigration reform, not just piecemeal effort and approach. We can no longer continue to allow people to enter the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked.  

The American people are a welcoming and generous people, but those who enter our country's borders illegally, and those who employ them, are violating the law. We must secure our borders by first enforcing our existing immigration laws for which there are many. We need to put a cap on the number of immigrants we allow to enter and apply for citizenship. We need improved reporting procedures for immigrants. We need additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on the border and at our ports of entry. We need additional Customs and Border Protection agents equipped with better technology and real-time intelligence. By enforcing our existing laws and re-enforcing our borders and points of entry we can begin to minimize human smuggling organizations and the crime associated with this trade. We further need to crack down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants. It will continue to be a problem when we only enforce our laws against the immigrants themselves. We must put into place an accurate method or system for employers to verify whether their employees are legally eligible to work in the United States that is fair to legal workers, safeguards people's privacy, and is not used to discriminate against legal citizens and workers.

For the millions living here illegally but otherwise playing by the rules, we must require them to come out of the shadows and get right with the law. We support a system that requires undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, pay taxes, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens. They are our neighbors, and we can help them become full tax-paying, law-abiding, productive members of society

If whoever gets the nomination for president, and whoever gets elected president, doesn't understand that if legal status with birthright citizenship is granted to just half of the 12 million illegals, they will be a 750 million majority, with voting rights, in three generations.

Their religion/culture encourages large families (whether they can support them or not).  With an average of 5 children per family, they will go from 6 million to 30 million in one generation.  From 30 million to 150 million in two generations.  From 150 million to a 750 million majority with voting rights…

Border Fences are a false sense of security

Michael Simone : September 06, 2011

The construction of walls and fences along our southern borders to stop the problem of illegal immigration is neither a realistic or effective solution.

There is also the problem of the thousands of miles of coast line that goes unmentioned. This portion of the border is far more difficult and expensive to secure and, on which no fence or wall can be built, making it far more easier to enter this country. We have to get realistic and accept the fact that there is no fence tall enough or wide enough that we can build to keep illegal…

Uncontrolled immigration, legal and illegal is killing this country as we stand by

Don Torgersen : June 07, 2010

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia," explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood…

This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent.

As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:
I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its student’s averages lower socioeconomic and income levels.

Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park, etc., where these…

America Understand! Arizona has every right to its Immigration Law

ARParty : May 19, 2010

America, we need to wake up and begin to understand our Country's Constitution, States rights and the Rights of the People.

Unless we understand these laws and rights we will continually be at odds against one-in-other. And, this is exactly what the Obama Administration wants and is striving for. Divide and Conquer. Divide the people over social issues rather than enforcing existing immigration laws and the Constitution and Conquer by government and the Progressive liberals seizing the opportunity  with false justification to pass immigration laws that further violate State rights and the rights of Americans to individually protect…

    Simple: to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds? We’d vote for the American people every single time.
