Amnesty is the cowards way out of a situation that demands hard, clear and fair choices.We the people have been asleep at the helm. We the people have allowed idiot, criminal politicians to mold the dialogue with the help of a compliant media. OH the poor simple peasant fleeing oppression to make his way in the great and wonderful land of opportunity. Make no mistake, we ARE a NATION of immigrants, most of whom entered this country through the front door, filling out mountains of paperwork, spending thousands of dollars (or the equivalent in pesos/francs/Deutsche marks/lira/pounds to do so. The original mob often gave their lives (as invasions often do) to establish their foothold in the “New World”. The cost of immigration is always high. A nation governed by the LAW which is spelled out clearly in * Title 8 of the Code of Federal Regulations* as it concerns immigration into this country. And now, because we the people said nothing there is a teaming hoard of people in this country with NO LEGAL authority to be here. We quake at the thought of the cost to send them home. We fear the effort it will take to close a wide open border and we cry at the injustice that will occur to those children of the original criminal as they are separated from family IF we actually stand up for the rule of law. And greedy businesses continue to take advantage of those poor souls with no consequence. It is so much easier to just give amnesty. Fine. Before we begin to mop up all the flood the logical course of action would be to fix the leak. If you do not stop the influx of people then why have any immigration regulations at all?
