Noting that he became a United States Citizen the Legal way., I think we need to remind the support from the left of Illegal infiltration how to Immigrate the legal way. Legal being the word;



Rocker Billy Idol shared Thursday that he had officially become a U.S. citizen when he raised his hand and took the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance.

-from the United Kingdom — moved to New York in 1981 to have a solo career after he helped launch the punk group Generation X

But he moved to the US in '81 - that's nearly fourty years ago.
I hope he's been paying his taxes- but with a net worth of 50M I'm guessing he hasn't, and will never be expected to.

Am I predictable?
Really?
I think you've got me painted with the wrong brush, bud.

Would you have guessed I'm against all immigration, especially illegal?

I'm happy at least somebody did their paperwork and followed the laws I've been expected to follow since birth- but why did it take fourty years, and how did he get away with it?

I've got questions.

Wow. William Broad is now an American. Well, it's what he wanted way back when in the 80's. I don't have a problem with it, as he appears to have done it via the legal avenue.

Welcome back, Billy. I guess your revenge is complete.

What do you mean, "...how did he get away with it?" Get away with what? If the US is anything like Canada, you can get status as a Landed Immigrant and there is no deadline on that forcing you to become a citizen. Being a Landed Immigrant means you still have to pay taxes, but I can't vote however. I can go to school, work, all that. Just not vote and can't get a Canadian passport. I suspect the US is similar.

A lot of E.u countries will give you a passport if you have between 500.000+ and 2 million to deposit in the country or buy a property

So all those 37 years while he was living in New York, working and earning $50 million of US money, without citizenship, he was legal?

Doesn't that seem like a double standard on the part of those who let him stay yet prosecute and deport the poor?

Idol no doubt contributed millions into the Economy, rather than living off the system and taking tax payer money. But still I get your drift on the matter, up until recently no one in Gov really pushed the idea of doing or saying anything about it.

Probably somewhat true about his contributing a couple of million back into the economy. However, I'm fairly sure that, if one examined the books, he took 'fiddy' out.

Regardless, I don't think he did anything wrong in that.

I also am fairly sure that the other immigrants, who are being declared as illegal, would be just as happy to have the capability to contribute back a ratio of their incomes, too.

The thing is that the current American population is aging. This means that they are also retiring from work in greater and greater numbers, becoming dependent upon the government to provide for and pension them.

Not only that but these retirees were once the business owners. With no-one to pass their businesses to, they will have to wind them up. That also means that the jobs of working in those businesses go, too, leading to no work, no workers, no trade and no commerce.

Where will the money that America needs to support such an aging population, come from? Who will be the workers? Who will provide the work?

I'm sure that you can see why isolationist policy, in the foreseeable future, is actually a slow motion national disaster.
