First, I may not define "amnesty" in the same way you do. Amnesty provides a pathway to citizenship, and I reject that solution for everybody who entered illegally aside from those who were brought here as children. Those folks had no choice. We have educated them, and this is the only home they know. Consequently, I would afford them a pathway contingent on them completing school and demonstrating good character (no criminal background, no felony convictions.) Everybody else I would NOT afford amnesty. Rather, I would provide them with the option to apply to remain as Temporary Guest Workers (see the first four posts of this thread). I would start by excluding anybody who had never paid taxes or who could not demonstrate continuous residency of no less than five years. Why? So that newer illegal arrivals can be removed from the workplace and unemployed Americans and legal immigrants can take those jobs. We have about 7 million Americans who are unemployed in the same income sectors where illegals ARE working. Let's assist them in their need, and that removes some of the burden on taxpayers as well.<quoted text>
DWG WROTE: electiion is over, Mr. Romney sugest auto-deportation. It happens with e-verify program and many deal inside each state to enforce their law like Arizona law.
DWG WROTE: it is not the same , sometimes i miss something and it force me to send again one time this Topix Website note modernize or improve it for re-edit , SORRY if it BOTHER YOU REPEATEDLY, one time you like read and write, and know the best post to read can be the last one.
DWG WROTE:my point here is, we have to make a very loud sounds of Amnesty, to wake everybody that 2012 election is over, and this soverign nation have democracy and Republicans right now need to work for our country not just for a few people inside the party.
DWG WROTE: Once the proposal is not mine and yours, will be fine, American people already showed their power at 2012 election and people like you do not admit the fact that:
1) 47% of voter need respect ( Romney said they are countless ).
2) Second term of black man in the presidential office.
3) and many others resons we had watched during the 2012 campaign in USA.
DWG WROTE :2013 immigration reform with amnesty would make sense to others here if could you explain the weak technology at 1986 that not help manage that last Amnesty ?
1986 amnesty just make everything worst specially about drug war with a proliferation of quimical dependence into many young american during the course of 27 years of open doors ( south borders)
Requirements of 1986 amnesty:
a-made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit unauthorized immigrants.
b-legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants.
c-legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982
Note: only About three million illegal immigrants were granted legal status, and millions still undocumented here.
DWG WROTE : Again , explain please why 2013 immigration reform with amnesty would make sense to others here , if could you explain now the weak technology at 1986 that not help manage that last Amnesty ?
Note: remember 2000 biometric visa system.
GOD BLESS YOU :-)
So, legitimizing some segment of illegals who have worked and contributed doesn't mean affording them citizenship, or even as the President has recommended LPR status in 8 years. From that moment in time, those who achieve that status would be eligible for every social welfare program afforded American citizens: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, public assistance programs, etc.. We can't even afford these things for our own citizens. Why should we be faced with additional millions to have to cover?
Worse, we're on the road to chain migration of millions more folks who have none of the skills (or, at least very few likely will) that we need in America. It's an idiotic idea.
