This would have been the way to handle it all along.
At it's core, illegal immigration does really tick me off. It's not the people. It's not that they are more likely to work for cash and not pay
taxes. It's not even that they don't speak English (although it would be nice if they signed up for a free ESL class).
For me, it really comes down to the fact that if you or I broke the law, even a minor one such as jay-walking, we would certainly face the
consequences. The cops, because of the recession, have been writing tickets like crazy over the past 6 months. And since we just passed a law that
requires all vehicles to come to a complete stop at every pedestrian crossway, they are nailing people right and left. Yet, they walk right past 20 -
30 'day-laborers' every day. We all know they are illegals. But nobody cares.
I just think it's fundamentally wrong (and yes, I know 'life isn't fair') that the people that are here legally, and followed the law to legally
become residents of this country, get penny pinched and taxed and fined for every little thing. Yet, the Federal government is willing to turn a
blind eye to trespassers. Millions of trespassers!
Frankly, I don't know why this was ever allowed to lapse in the first place. It should have been, and should always be, our first priority:
protecting our borders.
