It's a first step in the right direction.
It is an answer to those who ask how we can possibly get rid of the estimated 10-12 million illegals
currently here. The answer is simple - strict
enforcement of current laws and heavy penalties for scofflaw employers. Little by little, the
word will get around that this will not be tolerated. Hitting the employers in the pocketbook is the quickest way to gain their compliance.
Have you ever seen Mexico's policy in regards to illegal immigration into Mexico? They are very
intolerant of illegals into their country, and
they enforce their laws strictly. Hypocritically, they cry foul when we attempt to do the same.
On the minus side of this issue is the recent veto by the governor of Arizona to criminalize the presence of illegals in her state. This is very
puzzling, given the scope of the problem in Arizona. Or maybe not so puzzling when you realize that it's all about re-election.
