IMMIGRATION: Laws should be fully enforced

The persons who are in this country illegally, and those who would support their illegal actions, have a lot of nerve protesting against the laws of the very citizens who have been subjected to their illegal activities, their importation of drug and gang related crimes, and theft of government services. America has always extended a benevolent hand to those who would LEGALLY seek residency and citizenship within our borders.

A clear immigration policy and stringently enforced process is necessary to ensure that Americans are protected from the criminals that other countries are glad to ship out of their borders, and that immigrants fulfill their obligations under the law. That includes giving government the reasonable ability to establish a person’s legal status when they have an interaction with an officer or agency, such as when a person’s eligibility to vote is established.

It is nothing short of amazing that today, our President and the Socialist majority in Congress applauded the Mexican president’s condemnation of the American people who would like to have our immigration laws enforced, when in fact Mexico’s own immigration laws are far more intrusive on human rights and lack any reasonable due process.

The majority of people in this country who are not represented by the Socialists and their mass media minions need to be sure and get out and vote this fall.
