I have finally reached my tolerance level for the crap the liberals are spouting about the Dream Act. IT IS NOT ABOUT KIDS! Thirty-five year olds and criminals are NOT KIDS! This is nothing more than the Democrats trying to build a voter base that is beholden to them in time for the 2012 election cycle. END OF LESSON!
Now is definitely the time to let every congressperson and senator type person know beyond a shadow of doubt that if they support the Dream Act they are out of a job the next time they stand for election.
I read one article with a photo. The photo showed a Hispanic lady holding a sign that read: " Borders are lines drawn by Imperialist Racists!" BS! Borders are internationally recognized territorial limits. They are not lines on a map. They are as real as a brick wall. Crossing them without an invitation should be grounds for expulsion ... immediately, no review, no delays while we discuss the merits of their presence. Repeat offenders should be escalated to a felony status and imprisoned or better yet given forced, supervised, community service (chain gangs without the chains). Since our prisons are already 30-35 percent illegal population, imprisonment is no deterrent. Let them clean up highways or national parks. Let them work on government projects. Then when their sentence is fulfilled, expel them ... immediately.
Those on the side of the illegals who call for civil disobedience should also be charged as political subversives. They too should face criminal penalties. They are in fact inciting to riot. This is still a crime in most states. Enforce the damn laws.
And finally, it is far past time to revisit H.R. 1940, the "Birthright Citizenship Act of 2007". Let's put to rest the question of babies born to illegal immigrant parents. Actually, the Constitution itself makes the case. Children must be born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States before they can claim birthright citizenship. International law assumes the baby to be a citizen of the same country as the parents. If one or both parents are not citizens and hence not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, the child has no birthright claim. Period.
Let's get our heads out of the sand and stop the economic blood loss that illegal immigration represents. And please don't assault my intelligence with the old BS about the illegals contributing more that they take. I don't buy it for one millisecond. They are by definition, criminals. Treat them as such.
