United States citizens should be outraged by the actions of the federal government for suing the state of Arizona to stop it from enforcing the federal law on illegal immigration. The Obama administration is playing political games in hopes of gaining voters.
The issue is that the federal government has the obligation to deal with immigration problems, not the states; but the feds aren’t doing it. Arizona citizens are being murdered and robbed.
Additionally, tens of thousands of illegals captured through the years were not Mexicans. How many Islamic terrorists weren’t caught?
On a recent bus trip, the driver announced that “federal law prohibits smoking or the use of alcoholic beverages on the bus, and this is enforced by the state police.” Will President Barack Obama and his unscrupulous attorney general sue the state police for enforcing this federal law?
The answer to illegal immigrants is clear: First, secure the border. Then, give the illegals notice that they each must apply for a temporary work visa, which would be limited in number. After a designated period of time, all of those who don’t have it would be deported. Employers who hire immigrants without work visas would be fined heavily. The work visa would not be a guarantee of citizenship, but would give them a chance to work and pay taxes like the rest of us. Immigration officials would then know who they are and where they are. Children of illegals born here should not automatically be citizens.
