CONCEPTS FOR IMMIGRATION SANITY

  • Illegal immigration has a huge negative impact upon America and contributes significantly to school overcrowding, health care crisis, highway congestion, wage depression, unemployment of citizens, and environmental degradation.

  • Illegal employers deserve massively more scrutiny and enforcement to combat their employment of illegal workers. Many employment laws such as the I-9 form were designed more to shield corporations from responsibility than to enforce immigration and labor laws for the protection of citizens and this must be corrected. Illegal employers should be considered anti-American, otherwise they would be hiring Americans at a livable wage.

  • Illegal immigration has resulted in mass lawlessness which creates an ominous double-standard where citizens are expected to obey the law but illegal aliens are not.

  • Immigration is an issue of limits and lawfulness, not of race and culture. When immigration is viewed only racially and culturally, limits and legality will never be imposed. The debate must focus on limitations and lawfulness, otherwise open borders will make the United States a marketplace and not a country.

  • Illegal immigration is actually an issue of nationalism, not racism. All countries have the right to protect its borders from those who enter illegally. This means foreign nationals do not have the right to violate immigration laws.

  • Violating U.S. immigration law is not a human right. The United Nations state; “Every one has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.” The human rights proclamation provides global citizens the right of emigration and return to their home country but does not include the right to violate the immigration laws of the host country of their choice.

  • Illegal aliens should return voluntarily to their home country. Once in their home country foreigners can apply for residency via proper procedures. The American public increasingly is opposing amnesty and the likelihood of future amnesties is declining rapidly.

  • Americans indeed should help global citizens, where they are at. Americans need to address the root causes of migration including poverty, corruption and illiteracy, which will require significant changes in US foreign policy. Immigration is not the solution to global problems.

  • Illegal aliens are an exploited underclass. The existence and condoning of this underclass is fundamentally against the principle of “All men are created equal” upon which America was founded. Ending the exploitation of the illegal alien underclass will end only when politicians, media, and others truly oppose illegal immigration in word and deed.
