Op-ed:
Immigration reform...a necessary evil
By: Diane Sori

“Yesterday the ghost of immigration reform past reared its ugly head. In 1986 we went down this exact same road with amnesty for 2-3 million illegal immigrants. I heard the word “contingent” used often. Furthermore, the Senate Judiciary Committee is headed by Bernie Sanders of Vermont. The final decision on immigration could mean a permanent dependent class and a permanent electoral block for the next generation. One can only estimate where political loyalties would lie, and imagine what happens to job opportunities for those here in America legally.” - LTC Allen West

So said Allen West after Monday's press conference where a bipartisan group of Senators announced a 'Pathway to Citizenship' proposal that would give legal status to the 11 million ILLEGALS currently in this country (three times larger than the amnesty plan passed under Reagan in 1986, which legalized about 3 million immigrants but did NOTHING about enforcement), and would include those students currently under auspices of the 'Dream Act'.

And while Allen is one hundred percent correct in what he says (he usually is), and I might add that I personally believe ALL who came here ILLEGALLY are criminals knowingly breaking our laws, hence the term ILLEGALS, the fact remains that most people, conservatives included, do want some sort of plan that would lead to citizenship for the people already here, in addition to an overhaul of the non-functioning non-enforced immigration laws currently on the books.

And non-enforced is at the crux of the problem for the non-enforcement is what allowed us to reach the point we're at now.

But at this point in time make NO mistake about it...an overhaul is needed because Republicans are sadly losing the Hispanic vote, a vote they once had, as witnessed by the November election where Hispanics ran from ALL Republican candidates like they were poison, sending a clear message that we must find a solution to the very real immigration conundrum.

According to committee member Florida Senator Marco Rubio (whose original plan this proposal is somewhat based upon), this proposal starts with the fact that our borders MUST be secured and sealed BEFORE any other measures move forward. And by 'securing' that also means that a better tracking of people here on visas must be implemented (especially to insure that they leave when their visa is up). Only after that's been accomplished would ILLEGALS be permitted to apply for legal status by applying for a green card to earn a chance to stay, and a green card would NOT happen unless a thorough background check was done and proof of gainful employment along with an established work record is presented. Also, a fine and any back taxes owed would have to be paid before the green card was given, and the person receiving the green card would NOT qualify for any federal aid. Learning English and civics would also be a
requirement.

After having a green card for a probationary number of years (still to be determined) ONLY then would they be allowed to apply for citizenship, but they would go to the back of the line BEHIND those who've come here legally and applied the right way. Also of note is that NO ILLEGALS convicted of crimes would be allowed to get a green card...they would be deported.

And no matter what the naysayers claim, this proposal is NOT blanket amnesty because as Marco Rubio says, “Amnesty is the forgiveness of something and nothing is being forgiven.”

Basically, when everything is stripped away, this 'Pathway to Citizenship' proposal is really just giving the ILLEGALS a chance to file for a green card as they should have done when they first came here.

In addition, when this proposal was presented, Rubio made it clear, and this is extremely important, the Democrats must at all costs be kept from passing a bill that gives these ILLEGALS the right to vote before they complete the so-called 'Pathway to Citizenship'...meaning NO voting until they have become full citizens.

This one point is beyond critical because if allowed to happen we all know the outcome...a lock hold on our government by the liberal Democrats will be the rule of law for years to come and this, while the Democrats goal, is NOT the intended goal of this proposal.

But even with this proposal and the best of bi-partisan intentions, Obama can always be counted on to throw a wrench into the mix and to play politics, as witnessed yesterday in his speech in Las Vegas. While NOT outwardly challenging this bi-partisan Senate bill, Obama did NOT endorse it and in fact tried to sabotage it.

As expected, Obama wants a faster path to citizenship for ILLEGALS, that gay couples (who he called our brothers and sisters) living here ILLEGALLY to be included in any proposal, and said absolutely NOTHING about border security being implemented first before anything else goes forward. Of course he wouldn't because if it was up to him he'd open all the borders...as in the more that come here and support Democrats the better it is.

But most importantly was Barack HUSSEIN Obama's threat, and threat it was, and I quote, "If Congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, I will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away."

Just who the hell does this man think he is to 'insist' on when or on what Congress votes. NO president has the right to 'insist'...to demand...to dictate...when or on what Congress votes on. Talk about overstepping his bounds...but than again, Obama doesn't see himself as president but as our supreme ruler and savior (gag).

And with statements like this, Barack HUSSEIN Obama has proven himself yet again to have committed crimes against America by NOT abiding by our system of checks and balances of power. So once the Senate proposal is passed (and I believe it will be), and according to its content, lets deport this Constitution hating ILLEGAL president back to where he came from...and it 'aint Hawaii.

Oh, and by the way, he can take ALL his muzzie brethren with him.

  1. If the laws were enforced that are on the books right now this wouldn't be a problem By the way Diane where do you live? Because unless you are in California, Texas, or Arizona you are living in Harry Potter land when it comes to ILLEGALS and the destruction and robbery they wrought. And if you look up the statitistics after the Reagan amnesty you will find that we didn't gain even 10 thousand votes for that. So your idea that we must address this issue is not very good. Especially since the old, tripe of "secure the border" is being used once again to try and convince people that we won't visit this issue again is nothing more than lip service. You are wrong on this issue, and conservatives are breaking 10 to 1 against this so don't pull a Marco Rubio that we all want this, because that just isn't the facts.

  2. Helloooo...note the title...a necessary evil. If you really read this article you'd see I do NOT support it as I clearly state the laws already on the books need to be enforced. And you'd also see what I'd do to the ILLEGALS here. Unfortunately, immigration reform WILL happen to one degree or another and I'd rather it be our side that controls what happens than Obama and his minions.

  3. If there were any Republicans that had any sort of balls he/she/it would've filed bills for Obama's impeachment all ready! We have no Reps doing the will of the people anymore. Our only true rep is the barrel of a gun and we all know what they intend to do with that.

    1. Yes we do but impeachment is NOT the way to go. ARREST, TRY, CONVICT, and CARRY OUT SENTENCE for TREASON, MURDER, and CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA is a much better option.

    1. He will NEVER be impeached but ARREST for TREASON is still a strong possibility if only someone in Congress would grow a set and get the ball rolling.
