Deport him. He's here illegally. He needs to go through the proper protocols like most of the immigrant who became US citizens.
It's not fair to those who did the right thing.
There's a big difference between an "immigrant" and an "invader."
We should adopt Mexico's immigration policy. They're enlightened about it.
Yesteryear, a country's might depended on the coal and iron ore a country possessed. Now it's smart people that drive economic growth. As populations in industrialized countries start to shrink, people are waking up to the fact that there will be worldwide competition for the best brains, if we are going to provide care for the increasing number of retirees.
The US is still a pretty good magnet for talent. Let's not spoil that with shortsighted policies.
I have met Jose Vargas and I am mentioned in his article in Time Magazine of June 25, 2012. I disagree with his attitude and some of his positions. However, I see the need for talented people like him to contribute to our future growth. I am an educated Republican who appreciates smart, well educated people. I applaud President Obama's plan to bring our immigration policy up to date. There is no Amnesty in his plan, just equity and appreciation for the potential of all men and women.
According to this line of thinking, Bernie Madoff's kids should be allowed to keep what he gave them because they weren't the ones who broke the law. Sorry buddy, but you're in the country illegally which makes you an illegal alien. The truth hurts, it may even offend, but it's still the truth.
