Independent Discussion Guidelines


Everybody can have a say in this illegal immigration controversy, by calling their federal and state representatives? President Obama is determined to give people who have no respect for our laws, a path to citizenship; even low key criminals. Zero-in on your politicians and demand they vote for passage of Texas Republican Lamar Smith “(The Legal Workforce Act (H.R. 2885)” to remove unauthorized workers from nationwide business by implementing mandated E-Verify. Both businesses and the American people overwhelmingly support E-Verify. Nearly 360,000 American employers voluntarily use E-Verify and over 2,700 new businesses sign up every week. The program quickly confirms 99.5% of work-eligible employees. It's free, fast, and easy to use. With 23 million Americans unemployed or underemployed and seven million illegal immigrants working in the U.S., now is the time to increase E-Verify. Then also demand passage of the “Birthright Citizenship bill (Rep. Steve King, R-IA; H.R.140)”, which will collapse the intentional smuggling of the illegal unborn into the United States to collect hundreds of billions of dollars in entitlements from taxpayers by parents.

Called “anchor babies,” the children of illegal immigrants born in the United States cannot actually prevent deportation of their parents. It is not until they attain the age of 21 that the children are able to file paperwork to sponsor their parents (CHAIN MIGRATION) for legal immigration status. The cost is unparalleled for the U.S. taxpayer who is charged with the free education, health care and low income shelter and cash payments. The parents remain exposed until that point. A well regulated Guest Labor force could be provided for agriculture, but not permanent residency. Plus the STEM program for technical professionals who wish to immigrate, but not unlimited numbers. The impoverished should not apply, as America has millions of its own under privileged. All the facts, the shocking costs to federal and mainly states welfare benefits, which the Liberal Progressives press, does not wish to be known at NumbersUSA website.

Are we about to lose our rights, our guns and a say on illegal immigration?

How about addressing why Mexico is such a dystopia that people are willing to risk their lives in order to leave there?

I would say that those certainly are among the causes. Of course, would any of the mainstream politicians dare to touch those issues with a ten-foot-pole?...and how many of those who talk about "justice" actually NOT vote for these mainstream politicians?
