Immigration: Letter to Senator
By A. M. Johnson
April 07, 2006
I have written to Senator Stevens and now you [Sen. Murkowski].
I expect both of you to stand firm on immigration. The law for
residents of Mexico will not be any different than those for
any other country. Any changes to allow amnesty, and that is
clearly what your current Senate bill is, have to be made applicable
to ANY country's applying residents. You can not allow favorable
action to an illegal act. If so, then give amnesty to all current
bank robbers, sexual child abusers and such that are living and
on the run in America. Where does it stop? How many damn amnesty
efforts with Mexico have there been? Many and the results of
I may not be the brightest
turnip to fall off the truck, but even I can reflect on history
and project into the future on this one. Politics is about compromise,
this I understand. Short term consequences and long term consequences
count. You may tick off Mexico and the illegals in the short
run by standing firm for current immigration law, longterm is
the backfire of concession and a failed solution to this problem.
What is the result if I, an
American citizen, enter Mexico illegally? You know the answer.
It isn't just Mexico as a single country that is involved, it
is the total of Southern hemisphere countries that will flood
up and through Mexico. The border question demands a solution
first, not amnesty.
You stop the leak in a boat
then bail it out, not keep bailing and sinking.
