Can we agree on this statement and policy? Or is it yet another racist lie?

“Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple. People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens. When we use phrases like ‘undocumented workers,’ we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration.”

  • Illegal immigration is wrong, and future illegal immigration must be curtailed.
  • Control of borders is needed through increased infrastructure (fences, borders), and security personal at the border
  • We need an employment verification system to guarantee that all workers hired are in the country legally. This must be strictly enforced with penalties for those who don’t comply.
  • Those currently in the country illegally to be required to register with the government and submit to a rigorous process of becoming a legal citizen, or face deportation.
  • Reducing illegal immigration will make more room for legal family immigration.
  • We must encourage the world’s “best and brightest individuals to come to the United States and create the new technologies and businesses that will employ countless American workers. But we must discourage businesses from using our immigration laws as a means to obtain temporary and less expensive foreign labor to replace capable American workers.”
  • In summary: “We must create a system that converts the current flow of primarily low skill illegal immigrants into the United States into a more manageable and controlled flow of legal immigrants who can be absorbed by our economy.”

    Do you agree? The "he" does not matter.

    The statement is entirely reasonable, and yes, I agree, all immigration should be intelligently managed, with viable and coherent laws. Illegal is illegal, not to put too fine a point on it.

    The mysterious “he proposed...“ raised a question about the context and origins of this statement, and it appears you removed it, but in doing so hobbled the syntax of that line of thought.
