As many as 400 regions, townships, countries and cities in every region of the U.S., including the majority of cities, have taken unlawful steps to offer illegals some form of sanctuary; help them obstruct federal immigration law and policy; and to even use tax dollars to encourage and offer legal aid to illegal immigrants.
This is a huge issue and one everyone should discussing now at all levels and all walks of life.
The facts about illegals and the efforts to aid and shield them from the law are not in dispute any more than are the consequences. In the U.S., however, there is disagreement between those who believe there should be borders and border controls, and those who believe there should be no borders and no controls.
According to Judicial Watch, a non-profit non-partisan foundation, the practice of flaunting the law and worse that the government, politicians and officials who support such activity is deeply corrosive to America because it undermines the rule of equality under the law and the foundation of our system.
It encourages foreigners to ignore our laws and statues that define us as a nation; and these illegals usurp the legitimate way of applying for permission to enter our nation legally.
Worst of all, it rewards criminality. Thus, encouraging the legal, the moral and judicial breakdown of the rule of law in the U.S. At various times, 250,000 illegals were serving murder sentences nationwide. In Los Angles, for example, 95% of the outstanding warrants for homicide are for illegal aliens.
This is going to be a growing issue in the U.S. Reports are that in the near future the U.S. is going to require workers. They won’t be available to fill the need, especially in the medical and housekeeping areas, due to the huge demographic surplus of our growing senior population.
A few people have realized this dilemma and are predicting that the federal government will be pressured by businesses to help recruit and qualify these necessary employees. Around the world other nations are anticipated to be dealing with the same problem of lack of workers for which the U.S. will be competing.
We must lead the world, first to grasp all facets of the situation, and then do what’s legally right for all concerned. Illegals now, citizens tomorrow. However, another problem is that culturally Mexicans first loyalty has always been to Mexico.
