Q & A

For all those who are up in arms about the new border laws in Arizona I would like to ask you how you think the United States is going to continue to pay the costs of illegal immigration. California is a great example of what illegal immigration costs its citizens and tax payers. Isn’t the State of California broke?  If you look at the Federation for Immigration Reform the cost statistics for the whole country are staggering. I would just like to know, from the proponents of illegal immigration, how they think the USA can pay for it?

    • heart  We‘re already bankrupt!  Truly believe they want us in turmoil so they can call in the troops & start their control of ALL people.

      Wish people would stop allowing the government thugs to push their buttons.  The People need to wise up.

      There’s more of us than there is them (gov).

    • Good question.  I have very strong feelings about this topic so I’ll just leave it at that.  I’m curious though why the people who are up in arms as you say haven’t answered.  I too would like to know how they feel our country can pay for all that as well.  Would they be willing to pay much higher taxes. Have a , oh I don’t know let’s just say for grins a “immigration tax” taken out of each of their paychecks????

    • I was watching the news this morning about all of this. There was a report from Arizona that a policeman was in a shootout with drug trafficers at the border. He was injured but not seriously. What came to mind for me was this: There are immigrants who are coming to the United States for opportunity and a better way of life for their families. My grandparents came from Italy through Ellis Island - legally and documented - for that purpose. Then there are those who are using our border to traffic drugs and other reasons of ill intent.

      If we reduced the demand for drugs in our country the trafficers would be out of business and would go elsewhere. If the Mexican government took better care of their citizens with work opportunities and other freedoms they recieve here I’m sure many would prefer to remain in their own beautiful country.

      Strengthening our borders is crucial for the safety of Americans and those in our country as guests but I believe that there has to be a tandem effort in many areas to accomplish the task effectively and respectfully for everyone involved.

      One thing that saddens me is I’m certain that these protestors over the weekend have no idea what the law actually says; they‘re just going along with the mob mentality that insued.

    • America is without a doubt the greatest place to live and I love my country.  My mothers’ family were all Irish (and legal) immigrants escaping British brutality in their homeland.  So I believe that out country holds the last hope for some folks in less fortunate countries.  

      The number of government assistance programs available to illegal aliens is a staggering cost to citizens. For instance, here in Idaho, there was a push to allow illegals to attend college and pay instate tuition.  But my daughter, a citizen, has to pay full cost.  And my husband, in his line of work, had the opportunity to review welfare/medicaid documents printed in 12 different languages at incredible cost to the citizens of Washington state.  The “free lunches” have got to stop somewhere.

      The Arizona law as I understand it, simply gives law enforcement the freedom to ask for documentation.  That is what all of us have to do during a traffic stop.  License, registration and proof of insurance.  If someone comes to this country, shouldn’t they have to honor the same laws I do?

    • I don’t think there are any proponents for illegal immigration here at all. If that is what you have taken from all of our other debates on this topic then that is sad.
