How do I (Guffaw) feel about immigration? Fine. Great. Come here for the American Dream! But assimilate, dammit! Do as my great-great-(great) grandparents did, coming from Germany and Ireland. Come here to become AMERICANS!
But do it legally!
We shouldn’t be heartless. But we shouldn’t have to pay for all medical care, public schools, college, housing, welfare, job training, food stamps, ad infinitum – ad nauseum for illegal aliens and their children, and provide them with free education through college. It’s said many are hard working folk who send much of their money back to families in their home country. We cannot afford to pay for our own poor! We shouldn’t be subsidizing others off shore. We already pay more in foreign aid than any other nation.
There must be limits.
Why the big push to force a path to citizenship? Statistically, it’s been shown that the vast majority of illegal aliens vote for one particular political party. (Yeah, I know, they shouldn’t be allowed to vote – but proof pf citizenship or I.D. isn’t required in many areas!)
We should have an enforced border. AND, stop this drug war nonsense.
