GFWC Windham Women’s Club Illegal Immigration Amnesty

What exactly is Illegal Immigration amnesty? We have an immigration issue in which 11 million illegal immigrants are living in this country and the administration currently in Washington does nothing to enforce, regulate or reconcile this problem. Tere are Federal laws to control and adjust a standard or requirement in which allows our law enforcement officers to carry out the enforcement and neutralization of illegal entry into the United States of America. Republican states have passed reasonable and properly limited State laws hereby allowing the state to enforce these laws while the Washington bureaucracy hinders and impedes the law to a point where still no rule prescribed by authority of the Federal Government is enacted on. What I have heard over the last two and a half years is that we must come together from both parties in order to better secure the future of the United States on many issues, including this one. Compromise, that is what I heard, what I have seen is something entirely different. Even within one party it is a mutually exclusive plan of action. Take an example from the Republican Presidential Debate in Washington last night. When the subject of Illegal Immigration was queried, all the candidates responded with the “securing the border must be the priority.” However when Newt Gingrich offered a plan to compromise by proposing a policy that allows those who

have been in country for 20-25 years, established themselves within their communities, held jobs, paid taxes and even attended church all while not breaking another law to not be expelled because they entered illegally decades ago, while those that arrived here within the last 20 years would be deported. He was lambasted and castigated by his colleagues on how he was allowing amnesty to all 11 million illegal immigrants when that was clearly not what he said. How this could be contemplated as a magnet going forward is hard to understand as those here 20-25 years ago would be grandfathered into the policy. Tey would have had jobs for over the last 15-20 years so that would not have been a factor in job loses today. What I don’t see is the

compromise from the other candidates for a better America. What would Romney, Bachman and the other candidates do with the 11 million illegals here once the border is secured? Tat is what I did not hear and have not heard from any other candidate on the illegal issue. Tat sounds a lot like what we have been doing since the Reagan Administration ended. An accusation was made by Michele Bachman that Speaker Gingrich had implied that all 11 million Illegal immigrants would “in effect” get a form of amnesty. Tis simply is not true. Does Bachmann actually think that all 11 million illegals have been here for 20-25 years? Gingrich is the only candidate that I have heard with some type of plan or solution to what to do with the 11 million illegal immigrants who are already here. What is Bachmann and Romney’s plans for dealing with this? Do they even have a plan at this junction in time, would it work? We don’t know because nothing had been communicated or broadcasted to the American people. Te second falsehood coming from the mouth of Michele Bachmann was the tale of how Gingrich likes the DREAM Act, you know the one that gives illegal students in-school tuition and other benefits at the federal level. In fact Gingrich rejects the DREAM act but does concur with a provision in the DREAM act that allows illegals who were children when they came into the United States and wants to show how proud they are toward this country by wanting to join the military and perhaps become a citizen after their duty is completed. Under current federal law, you must be a citizen of the United States to serve in the U.S. Military. As a former Navy veteran I believe this provision is a good idea. What better way for an illegal to prove their devotion to this country than to serve in the military and defend it against both foreign and domestic enemies.
