The proposed Immigration Policy being thrown around Congress is not good for The United States. Frankly, it isn’t fair either. It is not good because the message it sends is that with enough political pressure any one can push to change long-standing law. It isn’t fair, because those who have stood in line, and followed the U.S. Immigration process just as their parents had done are watching as others take cuts in front of them. It tells us that if we break the law eventually the government will give in and with open arms welcome you into this country. All is forgiven. That, to me, just seems to not be right.
I keep thinking about the thousands who are playing by the rules. I think of the thousands who, if Congress passes Immigration Reform, as it is written, will be given free rein to step over the line, take cuts, and become citizens of the United States. I have a friend, following the rules, who is angry because he has to follow the rules with trying to obtain citizenship for his son. Others though, are about to become citizens although they are here in the United States illegally. To him, there is something seriously wrong with this concept.
Apparently, there a lot of others who agree with me. On this one, I am on Rush Limbaugh’s side. He has launched a campaign to get folks who listen to his radio program to call their Senator and Congressman. Guess what? It seems to be working because there is a big chance that Congress might not consider the issue anyway. They might drop the ball, and let it float. Because there are just too many calls coming in opposing this Bill.
To oppose Immigration policy does not mean you are a bigot. It does not mean you are anti-Hispanic. It does mean that you feel that if one wants to pursue citizenship in the United States of America, that there is a process that is followed. That process has worked for many years. That process is fair and just, and still allows this country to remain as the melting pot of the world.
However, no-one should be permitted to just walk in, and because they came over the Southern Border in Droves, intimidate ranchers in Texas and Arizona, come into America and become dependent on our Welfare programs, as well as our health systems, and leave it all for the American Tax Payer to pay for.
They should, like all the others before them, be made to follow the process.
Anything other than that is not fair, unjust, and a slap in the face to all those who did things the right way. They followed the rules!
That’s my point of view……….I look forward to your insights on this and all the issues of the day. Meanwhile, have a great day and as usual…………God Bless America!
