Immigration Time Out

A United States Representative from Missouri, Sam Graves (Rep) is now calling for a moratorium on immigration I mentioned that a few days ago. I'm going to try to post an article from the St. Joseph News-Press. I don't know if this will work since you have to pay to subscribe to the News-Press. http://www.stjoenews-press.com/main.asp?SectionID=81&SubSectionID=272&ArticleID=64254&TM=31747.62 That will fill you in on the congressmans plan.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

hey, don't forget that immigrants pretty much built this country up. without them we wouldn't be shit. we'd be a bunch of lazy fucks complaining about how we're not on top of the world.

and...while I don't support illegal immigration, it's the American business who employ the undocumented that you should have a beef with.

plus, let's face it, none of us Americans are willing to do the shitty fucking jobs that these people do.

so...we can't have it both ways. we need to figure out exactly what we want.

Your right, this country was pretty much made up of immigrants, legal immigrants not illegal aliens, there is a difference between the two.

Something is being done about companies that hire illegal aliens in the state of Missouri, go to my archives, Thursday April 21, 2005 and check out, Missouri HB 197.

There are Americans that would work at just about anything to feed their families. The problem is they have to compete against illegal aliens that will work for almost nothing to get the jobs.

The moritorium is meant to give us time to figure out how to fix the problem.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

My family immigrated to this country legally. They wanted to make a contribution not just take, so they made certain that their first action in entering this country wasn't to BREAK THE LAW! They didn't live lives full lies, fraud and more law breaking. They became productive, law abiding citizens.

And yes, they did those s****y f*ing jobs, the same jobs that many AMERICANS are now pushed out of.

I know exactly what I want. I want criminals to be prosecuted (both the illegal immigrants and the people who hire them), I want the laws to be enforced and I want the borders to be secured.

I don't think we need a moratorium on immigration, just an enforced moratorium on illegal immigration. Immigrants built this nation as Ix Robotnik pointed out and that history should be honored. The problem isn't the legals but the illegals.
I am glad that some states are beginning to fine states for using illegal labor. The real problem is that many illegal immigrants come to the USA just to get our benefits without having to pay. A large percentage of the immigrants who come to the states from Mexico for example are pregnant women who come here and have their child. Our laws then make the child an American citizen and provide basic benefits for child and mother. I think that changing the rules so that these children do NOT become citizens automatically along with the enforced moratorium would do a lot to stop the illegal immigration problem. I wish no ill on these immigrants but this country can't afford them. Cheers!

Dear Mr. Schantz,

I just came over to your blog; your comment post in this discussion thread (where I found that my blog has gotten several hits from today) caught my eye. I don't know if you've ever been to my blog before... I actually have not blogged as much as I would have liked to on the immigration issue, but I feel strongly about it - I was just thinking about it a little while ago, in fact. In Illinois, our only announced Republican candidate for Governor is Jim Oberweis, who caught a lot of heat for taking a strong stance against illegal immigration.

I believe that, after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, we should have had a temporary time-out on immigration, and on "non-immigrant" visas, because the aftermath of those horrific attacks showed how horribly-managed the INS was. A temporary time-out would give our government some time to get its act together on this issue (which I'm sorry to say, it hasn't done - and the Bush adminstration is in large part responsible for neglecting this issue, and even exacerbating it, through its policies). I don't know whether I would support a time-out in the present time, but something very-significant definitely needs to be done about this problem. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be happening.

Please keep up the good work at this blog.

i hope one of you caught the CNN special last Sunday evening on illegals. it was pretty interesting.

i am a legal immigrant...strike that; i've been an American citizen since 1984, but came via my mother's defection from a communist country (Romania). my parents did work the shitty jobs (my father, a best-selling author back home, took a job as a busboy, at 43 years of age, then worked in various factories in Cleveland where we first settled).

i have a problem with companies hiring illegals. you have to stop THEM first. i'm not so sure how we can make our borders totally illegal-proof. But if we cut off the job supply, the demand might not be so great. of course, simply FINING corporations or even prosecuting them is probably not going to be enough. there are plenty of companies who are willing to take that risk in favor of a much bigger bottom line.

I admire anyone that comes here legally trying to make a better life for themselves and their families.

I admit that the FIRST step that we have to make is to enforce existing laws! If that means doubling or tripling budgets to guard the border, fine!

Prosecute (with JAIL time) the CEO's or owner's of companies that hire illegals. Quit screwing around, the solutions are obvious.

If it weren't for LEGAL immigration, I wouldn't be here. My grandfather came here from Holland and my grandmother came here from Italy. However; they didn't freaking SNEAK IN... they came through the FRONT door!

I don't think we need a "time out", I think we need to send armed American troops to the borders NOW before some terrorist walks in with a backpack nuke! I also like Joseph's idea of denying citizenship rights to babies born on US soil by criminal moms from Mexico.

There is a petition on the Bill Oreilly (www.billoreilly.com) website which is asking President Bush to do something about illegal aliens. Go to his website to read it and if you agree, sign it. He is trying to get 2 million signatures and has 250,000 so far. When he gets the 2 million he is going to send it to President Bush.

I just signed the petition Jim mentioned. I hope you will too.

I too am a product of illegal immigration, but I'm Irish.

You know if you put a freeze on immigration, all you will accomplish is keeping the legals out. It will have no effect on those who sneak into this country.

It is like gun laws. All gun laws do is keep law abiding people from owning guns. Gun laws do nothing to keep criminals from having guns. A moratorium on immigration will be the same thing.

Besides, completely closing our borders is totalitarian and anti-American. What is this, China?
