Only reform needed is to enforce the laws that are on the books. We have a great immigration police and these people just want to bypass.
Anyway May 1, is communist day.
Why should we expect new laws to be enforced when the old ones are being ignored? Non enforcement of immigration laws only invites chaos. No amnesty for people here illegally.
Why is it that illegal immigrants get to jump the queue and get ahead of those people trying to get here legally? Why do the illegals think they are entitled to extra benefits because they are felons?
Legal immigrants should be preferred over those that break the law and then try to hide behind protests.
Frankly, I do not see how these illegal immigrants think they should be allowed to vote. Besides, felons are not allowed to vote.
Vote? You gotta be kidding! My answer would be to pass voter ID laws.
Marx and Lenin would be so proud!
The LA Times recently posted an article that shows that the Obama administration, the Illegal Alien lobby, and the major media outlets have been in collusion to depict the "high" deportation numbers. The exact opposite is true since the beginning of the current President's policy. Interior deportation has and will be lower than 1973 rates. This is leading towards more people overstaying their visas and currently, more Illegal Alien minors crossing the border. Obama has just recently instructed border patrol to not turn back those Illegal Aliens on record as having entered illegally as priors, but to let them pass IF they don't have a major criminal record. After the first Illegal Entry, it is a felony each time thereafter.
Here's how I calculated the stats that are quoted in the article.
1. In 2012, 46% of the foreign-born population in the US were naturalized: Web Link
2. In Mountain View, 38.8% of residents are foreign-born: Web Link
Assuming the national rate of naturalization holds in Mountain View, that means that 54% * 38.8% = 21% of residents are disenfranchised. That's 1 in 5 people that live here!
I suspect the rate of naturalization may be higher in Mountain View due to the presence of Google. But still, that's a lot of people living without democratic representation. Including myself.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
