Changing the Language on Immigration

8-3-11
When someone from another country decides to move to America for work, it’s usually because they see more opportunity and higher wages.  Because most countries’ economy isn’t as strong as ours, and in spite of the current Budget “Crisis”, America is still the land of opportunity.

Should we expect every immigrant who moves here to be “loyal” to America?  Should we assume every immigrant wants to become an American citizen?    Do we submit allegiance to other countries when we go there for work?  Do they expect us to convert and disavow allegiance to America?  Of course not.

We must remember that our country doesn’t require someone to be a citizen to participate in our economy.   Simply, we just ask that everyone living here is documented…with a green card or worker’s visa.  Because someone is NOT a citizen doesn’t exactly mean they are illegal, and how we position ourselves on this topic is critical to the expansion of the Republican Party.

Here’s an excerpt from the 2010 Republican Party Platform…let me know what you think about it…

Legal Immigration – One nation, one flag, one language, one loyalty;
America is a country of immigrants, we should insist that any immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an
American and assimilates himself/herself to the United States. He/she shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else. This is predicated upon the fact that the person is in every facet an American, and nothing but an American.

There can be no divided allegiance. Anyone who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t American at all. We have room but for one flag, the American Flag. We have room for but one language here and that is the English language.  We have room for but one sole loyalty and that is loyalty to the American people. (Teddy Roosevelt, 1907)

Illegal Immigration – Secure the Borders Now.
With growing impatience the American people in overwhelming numbers have asked our Government to secure our
borders. They now demand it and we as a party agree with the American people. Illegal aliens have by definition violated U.S. law.

We oppose illegal immigration, amnesty in any form leading to citizenship, or legal status for illegal immigrants. We
support an end to the “catch and release” policy; criminal penalties and aggressive enforcement for those who knowingly employ illegal workers; expeditious hearings on deporting non-violent illegal immigrants; amending the U.S. constitution to suspend automatic U.S. citizenship to children born to illegal immigrants; elimination of federal and state funding to cities with “sanctuary” laws; empowering state and local law enforcement agencies with authority and resources to detain illegal immigrants; rejection of non-verifiable foreign-issued cards as valid identification; strict prosecution of any entity involved in phony identification documents; elimination of day labor work centers; elimination of laws requiring hospitals to give non-emergency care to illegal’s; elimination of social security benefits or federal and state funding to illegal’s for education, housing or business loans; preventing any foreign entity from using our judicial system to enter the United States; document verification prior to issuance of a Texas drivers license; withholding federal highway funds from any state issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens; and aggressive prosecution of persons smuggling humans across our borders. We support requiring all employers to utilize E-verify system to confirm the legal status of all new hires.


Enforcement of Immigration Law
– We support strict and immediate enforcement of all immigration laws.

Birthright Citizenship – We call on the Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of these United States to clarify
Section 1 of the 14th amendment to limit citizenship by birth to those born to a citizen of the United States: with no
exceptions.

    The Liberal progressives are at it again in looking for a motive to tax us even more, so we keep supporting illegal aliens. We were just diverted from a calamity, with the $14.5 trillion dollars treasury deficit, if it actually works? But every year and rapidly climbing is the cost of the $113 billion dollars we supplement for lawbreakers, who entered the United States without permission of the people. There is no excuse for our government or any previous administration to keep catering to these non-Americans, who have no right to be here. Eric Holder, a Justice Department Czarists in Obama’s Imperial Court, is currently serving papers on Alabama. This Southern State is trying to save its citizens and permanent residents, by enacting illegal immigration enforcement. Is the Obama administration so ignorant and indifferent to States suffering from this pestilence, that they encourage and place no real enforcement obstacles in the way of this occupation? The Tea Party does, Presidential contender Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) that the Tea Party Caucus has full intentions of halting any types of Amnesty or anything that is tainted with CHAIN MIGRATION laws.

    IN WHATEVER STATE YOU ABIDE, YOU HAVE BEEN LIED TO FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS FROM EACH US ADMINISTRATION. YOU HAVE SEEN THE TENTATIVE COST OF $113 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR, THAT COMES FROM AMERICAN WORKERS SWEAT AND BLOOD. NEXT YEAR YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO COMPLETELY OVERRUN THE REPUBLICANS AND LIBERAL DEMOCRATS AND VOTE IN MORE STRONG TEA PARTY LEADERS, WHO WILL NOT ONLY SHRINK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY, BUT RETURN POWER TO EACH SOVEREIGN STATE. THE TEA PARTY WILL REVISE OUR TAX SYSTEM, SO EVERYBODY PAYS WITH NO EXEMPTIONS, AS WE HAVE TODAY. THE 1986 IMMIGRATION CONTROL & REFORM ACT WILL BE FULLY ENFORCED AND ONLY THE HIGHLY SKILLED PROFESSIONALS WILL RECEIVE ENTRY VISAS TO AMERICA. SIMILAR TO THE 1942 ”BRACERO” PROJECT TEMPORARY VISA WILL BE INTRODUCED, BUT WITH A TRACKING SYSTEM FOR THOSE WHO SNUB OUR LAWS; SAME WITH TOURISTS WHO OVERSTAY VISAS.

    Should Obama win the 2012 election, he will return the favor to non-citizens and illegal aliens with the passage of another Amnesty. Another Amnesty similar to the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli bill is projected to cost $2.5 Trillion dollars, according to the Heritage Foundation. Then there is the evident question why would the US government consider this, when every State is struggling to climb out of a financial hole? Every day billions of dollars are added to the US deficit, and still President Obama, Sen. Reid, Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano and Eric Holder and his Liberal friends, want to add even more dollars to the growing deficit. California now is carrying a $26 Billion dollar deficit neglecting its own legitimate citizen’s interests as a priority. If the Liberals sitting in Sacramento was ousted, then they would not be adding another $21.Billion and then Carson City, Nevada $1Billion, 191million dollars annually.

    Both States have very high populations of illegal aliens and no State can survive this type of maltreatment. Welfare for illegal immigrants has got completely out of hand. American taxpayers are spending 3 to 4 dollars on these people, for just one dollar illegal aliens pay into the US Treasury and State general funds. These dollar figures are not speculation, but real numbers on years of calculation’s, data and assessments contributed to the general public by (FAIR) Federation of American Immigration Reform, Robert Rector Chief analyst for the Conservative Heritage Foundation and NumbersUSA. I’m a TEA PARTY MEMBER, are you? The Leftists have been unable scare the TEA PARTY or come to that, average Americans; the Tea Party recognizes all racial groups or individuals religious conviction are welcome, as long as you came to the United States through the front door.

    We as US Citizens, must be made aware that Liberals especially see no difference in who registers to vote. This has become even more predominant in the last decade, as illegal migrants and immigrants have been registering to vote, especially by forging “Absentee Ballots.” Federal law is rather lax in this matter, with foreign nationals overcoming their reluctance of committing perjury. Many State are now demanding government picture ID as verification, but “Blue” states have ignored this enforcement, with only the minimum of election investigative checks.

    Now the panicking Leftists are frantic, as now their calling me and multiples of millions Tea Party members –TERRORISTS. What a wretched lot, when they can’t fight you fairly and sink down into a cesspit of slurs, along with their radical reporters in the press. The Tea Party wing of the Republican Party, aided in winning the first round, to a balanced budget amendment, but it’s a progressive uphill battle in opposition to the Tax and Spend Liberals. Every American who sees that this is a silent occupation by illegal foreigners should call their Washington Representatives. If they want stop the Obama federal government encroaching on State rights, your rights, that only the people’s raised voice can halt this sham? This especially covers issues such as border fence remaining insecure and yet Americans still forced through federal law to pay for 300 thousand children who are smuggled across the border annually, that taxpayers must educate. Issues like the DREAM ACT or any action such as a Sanctuary States or Immigration Reform just encourages millions more to slip past borders, or enter by jet with a visa and then over-stays.

    Courts have ordered that Taxpayers must cover costs for illegal pregnant Mothers, the whole family and their offspring for non-reimbursed hospital care. Then there are billions of dollars being spent, to cover Medicaid and other welfare programs. But the activist Liberal judges interpreting the law to their own advantage just dumped the free programs on state taxpayers, as the US government reimburses only a small portion to the respective states. Soon Georgia, Arizona, Utah could face similar court injunctions, from the communist ACLU, the radical La Raza organizations from saving their taxpayers from this disturbing situation.

    Immigration news: A federal appellate court vacated its original ruling that found Hazleton’s, Pennsylvania local ordinance requiring businesses to use E-Verify was unconstitutional. The court was instructed by the Supreme Court to revisit its ruling after upholding Arizona’s statewide law earlier this year.

    The biggest lie ever told about illegal aliens is that their is a population of 12 million. That figure has been the official old tired statement of the Liberals and the open border zealots since 1987. The Undeniable fact that there are now close to 40 million illegals aliens here and that they’ve nearly bankrupted this sovereign nation. The authorities South of our border has admitted that 12% of their entire country now lives in the United States?

  2. Obviously we have a problem with Illegal Immigration…we know that. We know they are draining our resources… You don’t have to be in the Tea Party to know that or to be passionate about its resolution. Thanks for the info.

    As far as the comment on the Tea Party “REVISING OUR TAX SYSTEM, SO EVERYBODY PAYS WITH NO EXEMPTIONS”…is that the official position of the Tea Party? To revise the Tax System? And if you are proposing that, what are the specifics?

  3. Immigration is at the top of my list along with Education and believe it or not they work hand in hand. To understand immigration we need to be educated on the ups and downs of this issue. I am sure that many will agree that this has been set asside far to long.

    Immigrants come here for a reason, not to steal jobs from others, not keep from paying taxes while they work here. It’s because it is the land of the freedom and opporunity. All they ask for is a chance to prove their allegience to the United states and yes we have many who have taken advantage of the situation by doing it illegally, and that is what I am against. I have talked to many in my hometown(Corsicana, Texas) and I get the same answers and questions. Why hasn’t anyone brought the Immigration issue to the for front of discussion? What are the politicians afraid of? Why is it taking so long for their paperwork taking to go through our system? Especially when many have been waiting for 15 to 20 years for them to be approved, and while working here have been paying taxes. You see you have some who are being paid cash for the work they do. So you could possibly say that these folks are not paying taxes on what they make. That is a sore subject for those who do pay taxes. Or for those who come to the U.S. illegally unlike those who are trying to get their citizenship in the right way. That makes all immigrants look bad just because of those who insist on breking the laws by comig here illegally. I will continue to bring this to te for front in my community because its anissue that is here to stay and will not go away until someone stpes up to plate and confronts it head on. No more LIp Service by politicians just because they want to save their carers. That is doing what the citizens of our country expects them to do. they voted them in office to do the right thing and they have neglected to do so. I believe that the immigrants deserve better than what they are receiving, they are being used as pons and that is totally wrong. We have hard decisiions to make on the illegal immigration issue and we need someone to step up to the plate and confront it head on, no more dodging the question. Actions speaks louder than words. You have perople using Drug Cartel money to come across with and breaking laws. They pay for everything they do in cash. Our government needs to stop turning their backs to this situation and take action. And wecan go on discussing the causes it’s a never ending list. Solutions are what we need.

    I have been ask what are some causes that has contributed to the illegal immigration issue. Well you have to stop and think of the conditions of the country they come from,and we all know that drugs, weapons, attitude toward the U.S. has alot do with it. You couldalso include how poor the counrty is. The list is enormous and these are just a few. Freedom is a key word for a reason to come to the U.S. When they get here then you have our Welfare stem and people take advantage of it, they use the system. The more you give the more they take and that is an issue we have to get out of.

    My final thughts on this is we need someone to step up to the plate and meet this issue head on. no more Lip Service, no more hiding from it, no more dodging it. Until someone does does it will still be stairing at us until we do something about it. I will say this tha I will continue this fight in my hometown until I myself can find some solutions and that buy cotinueing to tlk to the immigrants here. You never know what you might hear and learn just by talking to the people who are in the middle of this issue. This will be a commitment from this day forward.
