I was always against amnesty but there may be a silver lining in it. Just a few thoughts.
First I want to make sure the border is secured because it isn’t just people coming here for jobs. It is a matter of National Security.
As illegal immigrants they get special treatment from our Government. States get sued for asking them for ID, I talked with someone who used to work for the state of TN and was told they had instructions to just give them everything as soon as they knew they were illegal, now as a Citizen I was never able to get any help from the State and I had to show ID, proof of where I lived, income etc, then they told me no. I think it would be good for illegals to become legal just so they have the same rules and regulations to adhere to that the rest of us have. SB1070 in AZ wouldn’t be needed because I am sure if I got pulled over in AZ I would have to produce ID or be arrested. Eric Holder would stop bothering Sheriff Joe because he doesn’t seem to care if Citizens are arrested, only illegals.
As a Citizen, if I work the IRS knows who I am, where I work, where I live and if my taxes are paid and if I don’t they come after me like The Gestapo. I ask why should someone get out of all that fun because they are not a Citizen. There is the added benefit of millions more taxpayers so we will get a
little help with that bill.
Illegals get in state tuition from many colleges, I don’t so when they are given Citizenship that should stop.
All in all it may prove to be a boost to the economy when they are given Amnesty, pay taxes and deal with the IRS like the rest of us. The States will save money on Welfare and Medicade, The Federal Government will have a larger tax base so they can stop whining about needing to raise taxes on you and me because there isn’t enough money coming in. Plus the fact that we won’t have to worry about illegals voting since they will be Citizens.
You know it just occurred to me that once they had to start paying taxes and deal with the laws and regulations we deal with they just might start voting Republican.
