|Lot of debate on this one here in the US these days. This country is a nation of immigrants, most bust their ass to live a better life here because we do have some good things going on here! I'm not talking legal immigrants here, illeagle ones. On one hand it's pretty simple, Illegal is illegal....broke the law while thousands trying to get in legal are trying proper. On the other.....soooooo many already here and what and how do we deport all of them? Surely there must be a compromise yes?|
Lets take the wind out of this and put together a realistic compromise....because I'm a reasonable man.
The current bill needs only 4 amendments.......and I could live with it.
Amendment 1) As you are a federal convict, you are not pardoned. You cannot vote until you have been a naturalized citizen for 12 years. A work visa or temp visa does not make you a citizen.
Amendment 2) You cannot sponsor a family member for citizenship until you are a citizen, speak english, and have a job and means to house and sponsor them.
Amendment 3) If your child was born here illegal...current law does make them a citizen, but that policy has to go away after the bill. If this is how you got your citizenship...you can't sponsor another...for lets say 12 years.
Amendment 4) As a guest worker, temp visa worker, non-citizen, your wages do not qualify for SSI, Medicare, Medicaid.
Sound harsh???? Look back at what the system was during the days of Ellis Island...
