A Few Suggestions To Cure The Illegal Alien Problem

Topics: Immigration and Border Issues

If an American citizen breaks the law - we go to jail. Why is it that illegal aliens can continue to break the law, and remain above the law?

C. H. McMillan at American Chronicle offers a few words of advice to America's politicians on the illegal immigration crisis, and says that every necessary tool to solve the problem is currently present in Federal authority (and this is a Federal responsibility required by the Constitution!). Most are related to the power of the purse, others are covered under applicable criminal statutes and still more are inherent in Federal authority to control the movement of illicitly acquired wealth.:

It is illegal to enter this country with out a visa. Enforce it!
It is already a crime to traffic drugs or human contraband. Enforce it!
It is already a crime to drive without a license or liability insurance. Enforce it!
It is already a crime to employ an alien without a valid work permit. Enforce it!
It is already a crime to transfer funds out of the country on which income tax is unpaid. Enforce it!
Sounds like a good start to me - can't help but wonder why our politicians hadn't thought up such an ingenious remedy!

McMillan goes on to suggest that taking away the perks and enforcing existing law would result in voluntary out migration of illegals to their country of origin - soon thereafter. His suggestions have a strong ring of truth, after all, the opportunity for employment is one of the most important magnets attracting illegal aliens to the United States, and presently, employers are being protected by the Feds - which is a major contributor to the illegal alien problem.

While the politicians of both parties fiddle in Washington, allowing the country to continue to be burned by the endless wave of illegal immigrants, many of whom appear to have as much interest in having America become Mexico as themselves becoming American, they could at the very least simply force the enforcement of existing laws.

If an American citizen breaks the law - we go to jail. Why is it that illegal aliens can continue to break the law, and remain above the law?

Will one of you brilliant, self-serving politicians in Washington please explain that to this simple South Georgia farmboy? I'm really having a tough time understanding that.
