McCain Commits Royal Error

While most people in his party would prefer that our leaders simply secure the border and enforce immigration laws as currently written, John McCain and his fellow RINOs insist on pushing their amnesty legislation. Although it appears that McCain is going to get his way in the Congress, he still needs to convince Republican voters that amnesty is preferable to simply enforcing existing law. Last weekend in Iowa, the opportunity presented itself when McCain was asked why the U.S. couldn’t simply deport illegals like France and other nations have done. His response was quite interesting:

“In case you hadn’t noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France,” McCain said. “They’ve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can’t even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don’t want that in the suburbs of America.”

So McCain is basically telling his voters to support what he wants or suffer the consequences. Maybe he figures that since that strategy worked so well in France, he would try it here. It looks like McCain’s precious is starting to slip through his fingers.

The law we need to enforce is the one against those who HIRE people illegally. The US INS deports people all the time. They simply come back again. Some have been caught and deported several times. Start inditing the EMPLOYERS and suddenly business people will have to think twice about committing this crime. A few business owners doing jail time will be a deterrent to others who would hire in violation of the law. It is a federal crime to do such hiring, and yet as far as I know, not one business owner or manager has ever been so charged.

I agree that a multi-pronged approach is necessary to deal with the illegal alien problem. Deportation is fine and should be encouraged, as well as the business side. My liberal friends and I agree on punishing employers for hiring illegals, but for very different reasons. Their pov deals with hurting big business, mine deals with plugging another hole in our national security net. For me it’s about security, for them it’s about sticking it to the businessman.

If we had a real fence and the jobs dried up, they’d stay home. Also, mean wages would go up, union membership would continue to slide, and we can feel a little safer that our government is aware of who or who is not in our country.
