Our Position On Immigration

Strong Immigration Reform Leads to a Stable Economy and Safer Country


America was established by immigrants and has always been a nation of immigrants. Over the years, millions of people have come here in the hope that in America, you can make it if you try. Each successive wave of immigrants has contributed to our country's rich culture, economy and spirit. Like the immigrants that came before them, today's immigrants will shape their own destinies while enriching our country.

Nonetheless, our current immigration system and policies has been broken for far too long. We need comprehensive immigration reform, not just piecemeal effort and approach. We can no longer continue to allow people to enter the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked.  

The American people are a welcoming and generous people, but those who enter our country's borders illegally, and those who employ them, are violating the law. We must secure our borders by first enforcing our existing immigration laws for which there are many. We need to put a cap on the number of immigrants we allow to enter and apply for citizenship. We need improved reporting procedures for immigrants. We need additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on the border and at our ports of entry. We need additional Customs and Border Protection agents equipped with better technology and real-time intelligence. By enforcing our existing laws and re-enforcing our borders and points of entry we can begin to minimize human smuggling organizations and the crime associated with this trade. We further need to crack down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants. It will continue to be a problem when we only enforce our laws against the immigrants themselves. We must put into place an accurate method or system for employers to verify whether their employees are legally eligible to work in the United States that is fair to legal workers, safeguards people's privacy, and is not used to discriminate against legal citizens and workers.

For the millions living here illegally but otherwise playing by the rules, we must require them to come out of the shadows and get right with the law. We support a system that requires undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, pay taxes, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens. They are our neighbors, and we can help them become full tax-paying, law-abiding, productive members of society

If whoever gets the nomination for president, and whoever gets elected president, doesn't understand that if legal status with birthright citizenship is granted to just half of the 12 million illegals, they will be a 750 million majority, with voting rights, in three generations.

Their religion/culture encourages large families (whether they can support them or not).  With an average of 5 children per family, they will go from 6 million to 30 million in one generation.  From 30 million to 150 million in two generations.  From 150 million to a 750 million majority with voting rights…

Our Migrant workers Policy

posted on Thursday, October 06, 2011

Our farmers are now trying to get congress to help then get migrant workers  5 yr permits to come into this country with their families to work on the farms.
the farmers claim they will go out of business without them and our food will then have to be imported causing the price of food to go much higher.
Now with the unemployment % already very high ,there should not be any trouble for getting workers ,just go to the unemployment office and demand as many workers that are needed and if the unemployed refuse to work then…

Border Fences are a false sense of security

by Michael Simone
posted on Tuesday, September 06, 2011

The construction of walls and fences along our southern borders to stop the problem of illegal immigration is neither a realistic or effective solution.

There is also the problem of the thousands of miles of coast line that goes unmentioned. This portion of the border is far more difficult and expensive to secure and, on which no fence or wall can be built, making it far more easier to enter this country. We have to get realistic and accept the fact that there is no fence tall enough or wide enough that we can build to keep illegal…

JOE LEGAL vs. JOSE ILLEGAL

posted on Saturday, July 09, 2011

You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal".
Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California. 

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes
$25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and
gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".

Ready?   Now pay attention...

Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per
year.  Now take 30% away for state…

Arizona governor vs. Phoenix Suns owner - I'd say she makes a pretty good case with her analogy!!

The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, Robert Sarver, came out strongly opposing AZ's new immigration laws.

One of Dallas TX's solution to Illegals...Brilliant!!!!

Recently, in the City of Dallas, Texas, they passed an ordinance that if you are pulled over by law enforcement and not able to provide proof of insurance, your car will be towed right away. Afterward, to retrieve your car after being impounded, you must require proof of insurance to have your car released. This has made it easy for the City of Dallas to remove uninsured cars that are typically driven by mostly illegals. Shortly after "No insurance" ordinance was passed, the Dallas impound lots began to fill up…

The Dallas Solution

I have a friend who is president of his homeowners association in the Dallas , Texas suburbs.  They were having a terrible problem with litter near some of his association's homes.  The reason according to my friend is that six very large, luxurious new houses are being built right next to their community.

The trash was coming from the Mexican laborers working at the construction sites and included bags from McDonald's, Burger King and 7-11, plus coffee cups, napkins, cigarette butts, coke cans, empty bottles, etc.  He went to see the site supervisor and even the…
