Just a hint:
Online petitions generally aren't worth the time it takes to fill them out.
To be considered valid, a petition needs actual signatures, with verifiable information - it's too easy to fake an identity online.
If this petition was printed, and carried specific complaints (those listed are very generalised) with actual signatures, it'd hold much more
That's the way I'd recommend
With the petition itself, there are some problems:
Erect a wall of separation between illegal aliens (and their children) and tax-dollar paid benefits reserved for U.S. citizens and legal
Fine - except that illegal aliens sometimes have citizen children. Thus, the request is going to be ignored in all likelihood, as it's not allowing
for that situation (and nobody is going to take away the rights of born citizens, who just happen to have illegal parents).
Immediate investment in aggressive effort to deport the 12 million illegal immigrants currently within our borders – if you’re caught, you
are sent back.
Way, way too generalised. This makes no allowances for those who have, for example, been illegal as children and are now adults, or any other
genuine hardship reason which may result in residency being awarded legally (and I hasten to add, would result in that person being able to contribute
to his/her community...is that a bad thing?).
Sorry, but the petition doesn't look anywhere near as logical or realistic as it needs to be.
