"22 Problems With The Senate's Illegal Immigration Bill" by John Hawkins. The fourth one on the list is a gem:
According to Ed Meese, the current Senate bill would actually prevent police officers from arresting anyone based on the fact that they're in this country illegally. Does that sound like the sort of provision that people who are serious about enforcing our immigration law would add to the bill?
What precisely is the point of queuing in line, filling out a collosal amount of paperwork, waiting for years and years when American cops won't / can't even arrest a person for entering their nation illegally? In fact, American politicians are, in effect, attempting to forgive the millions of illegal aliens in the US.
What message does this send to the people who spend their precious savings in the hopes of coming to the US in a legal fashion?
