Binding

The Illegal Immigration Mess

(Citizens Reclaiming America Point #3)

Our founders originally gave Congress but four duties or responsibilities.
1) To settle foreign affairs
2) To print money
3) To settle boundary disputes between states
4) To declare war

The founders foresaw very limited government in the daily lives of its citizens.  It was not until 1913 that the Federal government was given the authority to levy taxes.

I consider illegal immigration to be a foreign boundary issue. Congress has interfered with all aspects of our lives, however when confronted with its basic responsibilities it has faltered.  Our elite “do nothing” Congress has failed to pass a balanced immigration law.  If our Federal government does not have the spine to address and enforce our present laws regarding immigration and our Constitution, then state governments must address this problem.

Perhaps Congress should reflect back to the words of President Theodore Roosevelt in 1907 when he said, “Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all.  We have room for but one flag, the American flag-we have room for but one language here, and that is the English language—and we have room for but one loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people”.

One Response to The Illegal Immigration Mess

    Come now, take a deep breath. Opposing illagel immigration does not automatically equate with hatred of illagel immigrants. One can certainly take the position that our immigration laws should be strictly enforced, while recognizing that most (not all!) of these immigrants are personally decent people trying to help their families out.But they should not break our laws to do so. Simple as that. Unless you know the hearts and attitudes of all the anti-immigration (really anti-ILLEGAL immigration) folks, you owe them the courtesy of not assuming bad intentions.
