One of the biggest lies perpetrated on the American people is over immigration. The lie is “the immigration system is broken.”
Enforce the law and see how well it works. Allowing sanctuary cities to exist is not a fault of immigration law. That has nothing to do with immigration law. End them.
Democrats, the Chamber of Commerce, and RINOs are the ones claiming the system is broken, and that “comprehensive” immigration reform is needed. What that means is amnesty, striking current immigration laws, not enforcing them, open borders, and chain immigration.
The first two want illegals but for different reasons. For Democrats, illegals are a ready-made constituency, already familiar with socialism and eager to get the free stuff Democrats are offering. They are, essentially, undocumented democrats. 30 million of them.
The Chamber of Commerce looks at the illegals as cheap labor. They don’t care about the law or the negative pressure they place on wages of American citizens. Cheap(er) labor means more profits.
The establishment Republican Party want’s “comprehensive immigration reform” because they believe the meme that they’ll not get elected without supporting it. Not only a total pander, but a meme not based in reality. Romney’s loss was not because he didn’t get more Hispanics to vote for him. Romney lost because 3 million republicans stayed home.
All the groups pull out the straw-man argument that “we can’t round up 30 million people and deport them.” No one is suggesting any “round-up.”
The solution is simple and, not extreme. Enforce existing law.
