Illegal Immigrants - Net Fiscal Contribution or Net Loss?

Net Loss! About $20,000 per year per illegal immigrant household. Don't believe me, read the Hertiage Foundation research for yourself.

Immigration Enforcement - not immigration reform.

Rule Of Law or Just Political Football?

I have previously stated my opinion (Illegal Alien or Undocumented Immigrant) on the Rule of Law and the difference between a Republic and a Democracy. On May 20, 2007 Senator Charles Schumer appeared on Fox News Sunday to debate several issues with Senator Lindsey Graham. During the discussion Sen. Schumer used that key phrase, rule of law. Unfortunately for us the good Senator uses that phrase when it suites his political agenda and ignores it when it gets in his way. Senator Schumer said,
This is serious stuff. The rule of law, putting law above whether you're a Democrat or Republican, is at stake. The attorney general has violated it. We ought to be doing everything we can to get a new attorney general.

Schumer was talking about Attorney General Gonzalez and the firing of those federal judges. The Senator is certainly welcome to his opinion, but it is far from certain that Gonzalez did anything wrong, much less broke any law. Now being a Senator, Schumer has taken an oath to obey the laws of the United States and to protect it from invasion (read the Constitution). On February 27, 2006 the Senator choose to ignore that fact when he addressed a mostly Irish audience and spoke of "immigration". Senator Schumer said,
I love America, and I truly believe that the more Irish there are here, the better America is...The worst thing we could do is close the door, not only for those who want to come, but for those who are already here.

Once again, we should put forth some effort on immigration enforcement before we attempt immigration law reform.

Senator Schumer, please honor your oath of office and protect us from invasion - it's the Rule of Law - close the door already!

Immigration Enforcement vs Reform

Immigration reform seems to be making the news these days as our "American royalty" jockey for political position. It has also been suggested that it would be impossible to deport all of the current illegal aliens in the United States. Impossible? Really? Have we given it an honest effort with the resources and willingness to enforce the laws of our country? It may be extremely difficult, but not impossible. Now an impossible task will be trying to administer the proposed Z Visa. If we can not track current illegals and deport them, why do we think that we will be successful in the logistics of the ridiculous Z Visa?

Do yourself and and your country a favor by contacting your US Representative and telling them that you do not support the Immigration Reform Act and to start immigration enforcement rather than immigration reform.

The Cleaning Lady

Hillary evidently sees herself as having a future in the cleaning business. Playing to a mostly black audience with Al Sharpton, Hillary said,
When I walk into the Oval Office in 2009, I’m afraid I’m going to lift up the rug and I’m going to see so much stuff under there... You know, what is it about us always having to clean up after people? But this is not just going to be picking up socks off the floor. This is going to be cleaning up the government.
Now, I'm not an African American, but I think if I were I would find the "what is it about us" comment to be a bit offensive - but I'm sure they gave Hillary a pass since Bill was "the first black president".

But lets reminisce for a minute. Hillary, is that the same oval office rug that Bill didn't have sex on?

Are you not married to the man who left the Old Executive Office Building with a quarter of a million dollars in damages when he left office?

Maybe you'll find one of the five missing copies of the after-action report that Sandy Berger admits he stole from the National Archive. Too bad no one on the 9/11 commission ever got a chance to look at the most relevant piece of terror prevention documentation that we had at the time.

Maybe you'll find those missing Whitewater papers that were subpoenaed by the Senate.

Hillary, looks to me like you've got plenty to clean up at your own house.
