While I mostly disagree with Spencer's position and would argue the stats he cites I do appreciate the civility and tone of his argument. We are all migrants including the Native Americans who came here some 20 thousand years ago. For the record I am of mixed European descent going back to the early 1800s.
The issue for me is about the rule of law and why we have immigration policies. If we had open borders America would not be what it is today and to give amnesty to the 20-30 million that are here illegally today, America will not be what it was tomorrow. Mostly we would lose the American pride which is in large part why our country has reached the greatness that it has. Hyphenated Americanism and political correctness will destroy this country as it has in many past civilizations. To eradicate prejudice we must see ourselves as the same i.e. Americans. Leave your ethnicity at the door and come on in is in the spirit of “ We the people of the United States of America…”
It is our rule of law which separates us from the rest of the world. One of the things that is so wrong in my opinion about our current situation is that these people that are here illegally have little or no alliance to this country and no skin in the game because if they get in trouble they can simply go back to their homeland. They have been assimilated into a life of crime by the American willing to exploit them. You only have to ask them and they will gladly tell you they do not care about our laws and that they have the right to be here. Not only have they undermined our immigration laws they break our laws on all levels. Moreover and lastly foreign nationals should not be allowed to dictate our immigration policies.
The truth always hurts those that are the most ignorant.
President Obama is wrong on this issue nor does he know the meaning of the word “comprehensive”. “Misguided efforts” what is misguided is that he and our government has undermined the Constitution and the rule of law. The biggest responsibility of our government on all levels is to protect our citizenry. Our government has been totally irresponsible allowing millions of foreign nationals to enter and working this country. It should be stopped and Arizona should not be criticized for acting where our federal government has dropped the ball. This issue is not about race except by the Latino population. Enforce the law and allow the American working wage to rise to where American they can afford to do these jobs. Enforce the law and it will decrease class sizes in our schools and stop the irresponsible birthing that is used to avert the law. It was the lack of enforcement that has caused the problem and enforcement is the only way to correct the problem. No matter what laws you create the one thing that any new law will state is that if you don’t follow these new rules you will be either denied entry or be deported.
