Land of Pilgrims’ Pride

September 27, 2011

A bipartisan coalition of state senators from Massachusetts is working on a bill that has a raft of tough immigration enforcement measures, including a provision that would eliminate the ability of illegal aliens to partake of the bounty of public housing subsidized by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, i.e. American taxpayers. The most famous beneficiary of this particular type of welfare is, of course, related to President Obama himself, as I’ve detailed in the past. 

Unfortunately, the components of this bill dealing with the distribution of DMV licenses to dangerous, illegal drivers is much too weak in its current form, especially when the havoc wreaked by illegal aliens on the road has been amply documented. Hopefully, as this bill progresses through the state legislature it will require more of potential car owners than an Individual Tax Identification Number, which can and is often used by illegal aliens who reside in this country. Still, this initiative is worth following, especially when the state’s governor is so horribly misguided on this issue. 

A first step in the right direction of immigration enforcement? Working across party lines to protect the lives and livelihoods of American citizens? Finally, something to praise about politics in the Bay State.

    American is broke, busted, so how can we imprudently repeat the same old performance of bringing in one million legal immigrants a year? How can we substantiate this, when we have a rising unemployment rate for average Americans of all races? This is not even counting the 20 million plus illegal aliens who are already here. It occurs to me and a good portion of the lawful populace, that illegal immigrants are receiving a better deal than lawful Americans.

    We deserve a President that upholds our laws, instead of bypassing Congress with Executive directives. He must be willing to protect America from its internal enemies, and sustain the 1986 Immigration laws against all entities who are pushing for wide open borders and allowing uncountable amounts of poverty-stricken people to enter this sovereign nation.

    Dr. Steve Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies finds that 81% of the jobs created in Rick Perry’s Texas between the years 2007 and 2011 went to newly-arrived immigrants. Something is seriously wrong here, but it will never change in the deep seated GOP members or the far left or Democratic leadership.
