Illegal Immigrants

Written by Ed Howes

It is a U.S. Constitutional mandate thatrepparttar U.S. Congress shall securerepparttar 113508 borders ofrepparttar 113509 United States. It appears this was never done and never will be. Whenrepparttar 113510 Federal Government failed to do its job and made things worse, it becamerepparttar 113511 responsibility ofrepparttar 113512 affected Border States to secure these borders and start programs that reducerepparttar 113513 pressure on those who are driven torepparttar 113514 U.S. The Border States did nothing but point torepparttar 113515 irresponsible Feds….and continues to do so. Not our job, they say, andrepparttar 113516 job goes undone.

Inrepparttar 113517 past few years, citizen groups have begun to step in, to attempt to do what government will not. These citizen groups scarerepparttar 113518 hell out of everybody, butrepparttar 113519 people andrepparttar 113520 drugs just keep on coming. Since no one can stoprepparttar 113521 illegal traffic, it is way past time to create a uniform policy for these people that were essentially invited here byrepparttar 113522 government’s irresponsible, unlawful behavior.

Because every undocumented immigrant represents government carelessness and dereliction of duty andrepparttar 113523 lack of domestic security, they should be recorded and rewarded for their effort. In many cases they have risked their lives. Congress has risked nothing. The immigrants deserve recognition forrepparttar 113524 triumph of will over bureaucracy. They should be an inspiration to us all.

Offer amnesty, a green card and a State driver's license to every one who desires them. Document where they came from, who they are, what skills they have brought with them and why they have come here. Take DNA samples so we can identify them and their offspring so long as they remain inrepparttar 113525 U.S. They came for a better life and we will see they get one. We can help them with skills training and work options, education, health care, housing and more.

Because they essentially invadedrepparttar 113526 country, there must be a penalty that will discourage others from doingrepparttar 113527 same. That penalty isrepparttar 113528 forfeiture of citizenship for them and any offspring, forever. Unless they return to their homeland, apply for legal admission, and obtain it, based on their record while living inrepparttar 113529 U.S.

The citizenship provisions ofrepparttar 113530 U.S. Constitution were deficient fromrepparttar 113531 day they were written. They encourage illegal immigrants to have children here because citizenship is a privilege of birth. Citizenship should not be a privilege. It should mean as much to someone born here as it does to legal immigrants who study for naturalization. The tests should be meaningful and difficult to pass.

Citizens need to be knowledgeable in Religious, Common and Constitutional law. This law isrepparttar 113532 contract we agree to live by. Not to knowrepparttar 113533 terms ofrepparttar 113534 contract generates criminal society and government. That's what we have today and that's what we'll have tomorrow. Citizens have left it all to incompetent professionals. Liberty demands personal vigilance. A lazy free man is a hermit.

Gift citizenship makes political equals ofrepparttar 113535 ignorant andrepparttar 113536 educated. What isrepparttar 113537 point of obtaining degrees and being a conscientious citizen, when ignorant fools can outvote you? How can you have a jury of peers when people who know nothing of law are seated on a jury and simply take instruction from some authoritarian, black robed, law priest? When citizenship is a gift it has no meaning but privilege. When citizenship becomes an achievement, it has honest value. Let's fixrepparttar 113538 many deficiencies inrepparttar 113539 U.S. Constitution. It won't be easy.

In Gratitude

Dear Taxpayer,

Your none too humble servants all too rarely express their deep appreciation for all you have done to make America all that it is today. We hope this message will correct that oversight.

First and foremost, we thank you for guaranteeingrepparttar national credit. We would be lost without it and debt free. We would be a prosperous nation with a government restricted to its enumerated powers. We would have few jobs for our friends and relatives. There would be so few benefits for us we would be forced to serve out of civic mindedness. We would be unable to reward our international friends or punish our perceived enemies, foreign and domestic, if not for your credit guarantee.

We thank you for providing us junior taxpayers forrepparttar 113507 future so we can let you offrepparttar 113508 hook forrepparttar 113509 deficits we will continue to run up in your name. For that matter, thank you for your name, in which we do all things. That has been exceedingly helpful.

We thank you for assisting us to bullyrepparttar 113510 rest ofrepparttar 113511 world to bend to our will. We thank you for minding your own business and leaving us free to do ours, which really isn't ours exactly. We thank you for assisting us to serve private corporate interests, that will give us well paid jobs should we leave public service and finance our campaigns till then. We thank you for voting and legitimizingrepparttar 113512 great good we do in your name.
