Solving Our Immigration Problem
I have personally struggled with the issue of Solving Our Immigration Problem. What do we do regarding the illegal immigration problem and the “WALL”. There is a humane and sympathetic side to me that feels for these 11 million souls. But there is a practical side that cares deeply about America and fairness to those who have come to this country legally.
My Grandfather came here from Italy through Ellis Island as did my Mother in law who was an immigrant from Hungry during WWII. One of the proudest days of her life was when she became an American citizen.
What is the answer?
Again I am torn between the moral and the practical. But there is a solution that I believe makes since. I learned about it from a video produced by Pager University and presented by Pulitzer Prize winner Charles Krauthamer.
There are four basic step involved:
First: Build The Wall. We must stop the flow of illegal immigrants into our country in order to fix the problem. As Charles states a WALL to keep people in is called a prison a WALL to keep people out is called sovereignty.
Second: Develop an E-Verification system that will allow individuals that are here illegally towork.
Third: Develop a visa tracking system. 40% off illegals are he on visa overstays.
Lastly: Deport anyone with a criminal record that is illegal. Then legalize the 11 million that are left. Allow them to stay but we can not give them citizenship.
Charles Krauthamer says it better in this compelling video:
Understand this is a very serious issue to our future. Please don’t take a position because it seems to be the cool thing to do. Weigh the facts and make an informed decision. America’s future is at stake!
