Please, let there be no mistake about it. The simple idea of reforming a system that is now defunct, given the resources, planning, and the motivation to get it done is unmistakably easy. This is of course if all parties looking to benefit from the reformation and do so with a docile mind, and perhaps moving along from what is…and what could be.
Earlier this morning I had the privilege of listening to Martha McCallum of Fox News talking about illegal immigration.The notion was brought forth that the major difference of course is that now we have precedence. The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) with all due respect was a cop-out amnesty; an administration that saw an opportunity at minimal risk to his Party and the illegal’s involved were openly using fraudulent documents, approximately 25 percent of the illegal population. Have we learned anything? Predicated upon the actions of our current government and several of those in the past have done nothing to deter or manage this magnitude of a problem. Yet, there is still a precedence.
In fact as Ms. McCallum brought forth what so many in the news business seem to forget is the simple notion that if the problem of illegal immigration was supposedly cleaned-up in 1986 during the Reagan administration well quite openly she asked “why” then are there 12 million illegal’s still in the country.
This is a great question! As many of our loyal readers know by now it is easy to point a finger at this particular problem. We answer this question this way: 25 years of unequaled neglect, four different presidential administrations, and pure unadulterated none performance, and simply not doing one’s job.
The U.S. Constitution became effective on March 4, 1789 and Article I Section 8 of the same Constitution has not changed since then. Article I Section 8 states: [The Congress shall have the power] to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform laws subject to Bankruptcies throughout the United States. In other words every Act, or otherwise changes in the Immigration and Naturalization Services is under the direct charter of the Congress. So what the heck is Barack Obama doing with his bull squat?
Furthermore, for at least 15 Sessions of Congress, innumerable Congressional members, who have not dealt with this issue…more tomorrow…
