Illegal Immigration

This is actually a thread started for "Except"

Would someone like to post up something original and intelligent on this issue.

A solution. What should be done that is legal and humane?

Should we make all illegal immigrants who committed a illegal act getting here citizens?

Should kids be sent home?

Is the Dream Act passed by the Senate the answer?

My feet are not completely set in concrete over the issue. I tend to like Mitt Romney's idea of self deportation. But for that to work there would have to be heavy fines applied to those who are employing them. I'm all for helping them return to where they came from in a humane manner.

If they "self deported" they could take whatever they have in acquired assets and go. I would be willing to help them leave but If they do not self deport and are caught I would humanely send them home with just their shirt on their backs. Basically the same way the arrived in violation of the law.

In all of this lets remember that we cannot go to either Mexico or Canada and just become citizens. Go there illegally and you will be kicked out or jailed. Same way with most other countries.

I have no problem with green card workers who preform work that most Americans refuse to.

Anchor babies are a tough one for me. Although the law says if they are born in the USA they are a citizen. I have a hard time accepting that an illegal act can produce a legal result if the parents are here illegally.

The one thing I know is that if they are allowed to stay under conditions -- they will not fulfill the conditions and in the end will just be made legal citizens.

I question whether politicians of either party have the guts to deal with the problem because of political backlash.

In addition it would not surprise me if illegals were at once protected by Churches. If that was the case then let the church house and feed them.

This subject has more to do with VOTES in the 2016 election, than whether the children are here illegally and who will feed them. Some of the 'Children' are a part of a vicious gang (MS13. They are bringing scabies, lice, tuberculosis and a drain on our social security system that will be the total and complete downfall of our nation. More to add, but to overwhelmed to print it...
