What's being said

  • Emphasis

    I oppose any legalization of the status of illegal immigrants until such time as the border is secure. Only then should we address their status in the US. I would also ask that the laws now in the books regarding this matter be enforced, and if the executive decides not to do so, that funds allocated for compensation of those responsible for the lack of action be cut, or they be fired.

    I would hope that instead of a massive bill, we would instead first pass legislation to make sure we will have security in our borders and control over those that overstay their Visa provided deadlines.

    At the same time legislation should also be introduced in connection with liberalizing the way in which applicants for residence in the US are accepted, but always making sure that they are required to learn English, US history, and Civics before they obtain their residence.

    We need immigrants that want to come to the US because they love and respect what the country represents. They don?t have to ignore or forget their personal history, or stop loving the country they come from, it is only that they should love the ideals of their new nation more.
