I am anti pool of cheap labor and future Democratic voter pool. For me the US borders are the responsibility of US law enforcement agents to keep them secure. USCIS immigration agents are supposed to do their work in US embassies that are located in foreign countries. I do not have a problem with increasing the workforce of the USCIS personnel so that they can do a better job of managing legal immigration, but that has absolutely nothing to do with the US borders getting secured. The US needs a leader like Abraham Lincoln or Teddy Roosevelt today. Too many politicians today will choose money over the well being of US citizens. We already have laws in place to secure the borders. We need to enforce them. We need additional laws to end the institution of some businesses to go out and get cheap illegal alien laborers. We need political parties to stop projecting an underclass culture of victims from whom they garner votes. Every US citizen is responsible for his own 'pursuit of happiness.' The government cannot solve all of your problems.
Republicans are for both the man and the dollar, but in case of conflict the man before the dollar.Abraham Lincoln
With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds.
"No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it.""Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor."
Third Annual Message to Congress, December 7, 1903
"There are good men and bad men of all nationalities, creeds and colors; and if this world of ours is ever to become what we hope some day it may become, it must be by the general recognition that the man's heart and soul, the man's worth and actions, determine his standing."
Letter, Oyster Bay, NY, September 1, 1903
It is not about this Bill in Congress or that Bill. The problem for the United States right now is that we desperately need a leader.
