Let's slow this train down

The President made a speech about immigration Today.

He came out by saying, " The nation's immigration system was "out of date and badly broken," and was "Holding us back instead of letting us grow."

How broken is it?

You come here illegally, you're breaking the law.

You ever try and work in Canada?

They hound you to get out.

I know a TV Consultant who had to get a special work permit to be there.

I worked in the Seattle TV Market.

It's next to the Victoria, BC and Vancouver, BC TV markets.

Here's how it works.

Canadians can come here and live and work.

Up there, the employer has to tell the government an American or anyone else is the only person who can do this job.

And remember, our liberal friends always like to point out we need to be more like Canada.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday "We can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate."

Well, sure we can.

Our system is built on debate

We get in trouble when we try and ram something through.

Look at health care.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday that if Congress does not act on Immigration Reform "In a timely fashion," he will propose a bill and "Insist that they vote on it right away."


The senate still can't come up with a budget.

But we can come up with an assault weapon ban in weeks.

We need to slow-walk this, take our time and do it right.

That's my point of view what's yours?

There is no effective means of protecting the border by geography for all obstacles can be overcome. We could protect the border from illegal entry, the way we used to, for pennies on the dollar spent to put our military there, enforce stiff penalties on those who house or employ illegals. Also, pursue the coyotes with the same mandatory prison time. If your politician advocates fences and manned patrols then, they are just pulling wool over your eyes.

There is only one word that fits Obama. IMPEACHMENT. He is trying desperately to circumvent the Supreme Court and Congress and now I hear of some and I am quite sure he is behind this too. Now they believe the U.S. Constitution is outdated and want to ditch that. Anyone that cannot see that he is setting himself up as a dictator is not looking close enough.

In Mexico, illegals get YEARS in jail for sneaking into the country. In fact, most countries do just that. Why do we not? Why do we suffer the illegals who, besides breaking the law entering the country, break more laws here?

Oh yea,, we get cheap manual labor, we get their taxes, we (at least democrats) get their illegal votes. We also get to finance their schooling and healtcare. We do that by increasing TAXES.

So we do need immigration reform. We need to get the illegals OUT.
