Illegal Immigration

3518 Responses




Illegal immigrants are a convenient scapegoat for our economic crisis. But with free markets and private property, the need for immigrant labor becomes obvious. Most immigrants, regardless of the color of their skin, are open to the ideals of liberty: private property, free markets, sound money, right to life, low taxes, less war, protection of civil liberties, and a foreign policy designed for peace.

Ron Paul proposed the following action steps for dealing with illegal immigration:

  1. Abolish the welfare state. The incentive to take a job at whatever wage available must prevail.
  2. Establish a generous visitor work program. Once we solve the economic crisis by introducing sound money, demand for domestic and immigrant labor will rise.
  3. Enforce the laws on the books with more border guards. Allow states and landowners to enforce the law and provide security assistance.
  4. Abolish birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants. [Current U.S. citizens will not be affected. Instead, babies born to illegals after a future cutoff date will no longer gain automatic U.S. citizenship. They will still have citizenship in their parents' home countries.]
  5. End all federal mandates on the states to provide free education and medical care for illegal immigrants.

    One way to deter illegal immigration is to promote international protests against it. If nations of the world stand up and voice their concerns publicly for their rights for legal immigration it will put pressure on the illegals to think twice as the world watches them and frowns upon their behavior. It should not be just Americans standing up but also the world to back them up.

    I found this website that is trying to do this.

    Customs and Border Protection Officers deal with inadmissibility at the port of entry and they use the 212 charges of inadmissibility.

    Deportation uses the 237 charges of inadmissibility charges.
    INA 237(a)(5) Has become a public charge within 5 years of Entry.

    Customs and Border Protection Officers use the 212 charges.
    INA 212(a)(4)(A) Likely to become a public charge.

    Customs and Border Protection Officers do not know if the arriving Alien will become a public charge or not, but have some guidelines to go by.
    Does the Alien have sufficient funds to be here to overcome a chance of becoming a public charge?

    For whatever reason Customs and Border Protection Officers are not allowed to use the Public Charge for Pregnant women because according to Chief Consul, a pregnant woman is entitled to all of the benefits that America offers.

    If an Alien shows up at the port of entry with no job, no means of support and no money, then it appears that the 212(a)(7)(A)(i)(I) which is an intending immigrant or 212(a)(6)(C) fraud upon obtaining a visa would apply.

    I understand that Pregnant Women already in the United States are entitled to wick, and prenatal care. That is what our laws state.

    However that does not mean that an ARRIVING Alien is entitled to these programs. The ARRIVING Alien is not in the United States to be entitled to these programs. They are arriving at the BORDER. THEY ARE NOT IN THE UNITED STATES, they are on the border.

    If every pregnant woman in the world showed up at the Embassy and stated that they have no money, no means of support and want to come to America to just deliver their child here, the Embassy would not issue them a visa. Who are we then, to just let them in? Based on what?

    If the arriving Alien has no money and they misrepresented themselves to get the visa or they come visa wavier with the expressed deed to deliver a child in the United States, then the 6C or 7A charge would apply.

    In Customs and Border Protection we have seen where the Embassy has issued B1/B2 visas for medical care here. However in each case that have had to prove they would or the government would pay for the treatments.

    I think is it irresponsible that we just let Aliens in with no money, no means of support, unemployed in their own country and possibly coming here for a medical benefit.

    I am proposing a new Section of law be instituted.

    Section 212(a)(7)(A)(i)(III) of the INA is an alien who is not in possession of a immigrant visa, who willfully plan to come to the United States for the explicit purpose of deriving US citizenship for their unborn child.

    This would take care of ALL these anchor babies, and FUTURE Anchor babies born here.
    Those Aliens charged with this section of the INA would carry a 40 year bar from returning to the United States.

    The way it stands now these USC children can petition for their parents when they turn 21. BUT if these parents are charged with a 40 year bar they would not be eligible to come back here till that child turned 40 years old.

    The reason why I suggest a 40 year bar is because many times these pregnant women come here foreign and state that they are too far along into their pregnancy and can not travel back to their country of origin. Fine. Officers do the case on them and charge them with Section 212(a)(7)(A)(i)(III) of the INA and let them in to have their babies, but they would be barred from coming back here for 40 years.

    End the DIVERSITY VISA PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is where countries put in the WIN legal permanent residency. They come here many unskilled and start their own business and then recruit there family and friends to come on a tourist visa and work for them. Outrageous. We have more Diversity Visa’s entering this country then any other Legal Permanent Residency. THE DIVERSITY VISA PROGRAM needs to END!

    NOT ENOUGH! your plan will never work ~ is it a joke?

    If you have 11 people and 10 “jobs” someone ain’t working.

    That 23 year old American born male with the American born wife and 2 American born kids can’t feed them when an illegal alien will do the same work for $5 an hour.

    When that illegal alien is sucked into the wood chipper, the other illegal aliens don’t even blink, no one calls the cops, OSHA, insurance, etc. No payroll taxes are paid – nothing. The business owner wins and simply gets another “disposable” worker the next day.

    The adult son of an illegal alien told me the option is for the 23 year old American born male to immigrate to Mexico and work there.

    There’s only two things that would save the United States of America
    1) Machine guns on the border
    2) huge import tariffs.

    But not even Paul has the balls to implement this. Greed seems to overwhelm everyone and no body is going to “lose” money because of an import tariff and there are so many decedents of illegal aliens here the machine guns would never activate.

    Why does Judge Clay Jenkins have the right to house these illegal children and families in Dallas County? Who is he? We still have to pay for this. Besides we don’t want them in our country. Please stop letting them in! We don’t want amnesty, we don’t want anymore people here! PERIOD! STOP THIS INSANITY! STOP HOUSING THESE ILLEGALS!!!!!!!!TAKE THEM BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY! Illegals are treated better than our VETS!

    I think illegal immigration goes hand in hand with our nations security …Our president when sworn in,,,took the oath to protect the United States of America and its borders as commander and chief..Terrorists are opportunistic, and where better than our borders?? As much as I wanted to blame BinLaden for 911,,,I find myself blaming the C.I.A. & F.B.I. for being asleep at the wheel…Once again we are asleep at the wheel over immigrants ( being allowed ) to illegally enter this country when there is a correct way.. I would hate to think of our officials as cowards and traitors,,, yet time will tell..This would have NEVER gotten to this point had our President respected the oath of presidency..An impeachable offense,I wonder ?

    A possible, costly but efficient way to stop illegal immigration would be to have the national guard of every state to serve time on the Canadian or mexican border. We have so many national guardsman that if each were to serve his/her own time on the border then it would cut the flow of illegals by a large number

    Once the welfare state is abolished, is it not safe to say that immigrants coming into America should be welcome due to free enterprise, and whoever works hardest deserves it? And if they send money back, can people not then buy American products with it?

    I’m shocked at the weaksauce responses. How can y’all demand more government spending on immigration enforcement and more restrictions on immigration? Have you forgotten what the Libertarian philosophy is all about? What reason is there for government to put artificial restraints on the free flow of labor across international borders? Are you afraid of free market competition? The only solution that is consistent with Libertarian thought is to abolish government restrictions on immigration. If you want the government to build a wall, you should not call yourself a Libertarian. Go vote for some big government Republican instead.

    Not good enough for border control Ron, and we all know it. We need a wall built, no matter how much it costs. The rest of your plan is ok. We also should not allow people to sponsor extended family members either. Only immediate, husband, wife, children, and that’s it! We are going to lose our country. Europe is dying, and Canada and Australia are next. It’s sick and twisted politics, and it will end in a blood bath! Borders were created to keep the peace, not the other way around!

    Diets that deprive your healthy body of sufficient amounts of nutrition will never result in long term healthy weight loss. Where you will have no appetite for food, you will eat less and as a result you will get add calories to your body.

    I think it’s crazy that Mexicans come here for better life and they join gangs and kill people. I mean go home with that bullshit. We didn’t ask you to come and especially with all that mess. I like Obama but I don’t agree with making the ones here legal and I wish he stop saying that because more and more of them set coming here because they have heard they may become legal if they are already here. It’s crazy because it’s like a bus drops them off in small cities from the border. I wish they go home because they are not use to nothing so they mess up a city homes apartments stores and anything they touch. They are filling up the city where I live and I’m ready to move because I feel like I’m in another country. I go to the mall and that’s all I see. Most Americans who depend on secret Santa couldn’t get it because illegals beat them to it. Most American who normally sign up for gel with electric bills were not able to get it because of them. I really wish they would go home so legal Americans can get our country back in order. They Keep talking about they do jobs we won’t do. I say we will do the job but not for the little pay they do it for. By them working for little money takes us back for what we work so hard for(higher wages) they don’t mind working for pennies because they live 20 to a house. They drive expensive cars and live in projects. Why is it soo many of them coming here and bringing drug cartel with them. Bush did it because he said bring them, they do jobs we don’t. We can’t go to their county and take over. I know this is a free country but I wish government take control so they come the right way instead of crossing over boarder illigally. How can someone get government foodstamps and anything when they aren’t legal. Why do they have soo many kids when they are barely able to feed and take care of themselves. Obama you are wrong on this one and again I agree with everything you stand for except making them legal. What about when we wake up one day invaded by this country? I don’t won’t to see more of them then true Americans. Hell I might as we’ll be in mexico

    Hotly debated. What do you think? Thumb up 13 Thumb down 10
