Column: Why the hesitation in dealing with the illegal immigration problem?
There are 4 comments on the www.newburyportnews.com story from Sep 3, 2011, titled Column: Why the hesitation in dealing with the illegal immigration problem?. In it, www.newburyportnews.com reports that:
I sometimes wonder if the reason we are still in Iraq and Afghanistan is that the president fears adding to unemployment numbers with military personnel who come home. I'd offer them all positions in the National Guard to patrol the borders. I also wonder why unemployed Americans aren't there now, instead of sitting around getting extended (eternal?) unemployment benefits.
We keep hearing that employers need illegals to do the jobs that Americans won't do. Let's celebrate this Labor Day by cutting back those unemployment benefits, and I'll bet Americans would start doing those jobs. The alternative seems to be continuing the delusion that we are in a normal, cyclical recession and the traditional manufacturing jobs are coming back any day now.

How dare our politicians ever use common sense, or represent the citizens they are paid to represent. That's too much to ask.

Because we let the problem grow out of control and now the monster is too large to combat.

A former enemy of the United States found this to be prophetic and so will the current enemies.
