The Simple Solution to the Illegal Immigration Problem


The illegal immigration problem has been a prime issue the conservatives rail against. The conservative movement has used this issue to ignite a wave of hate against the hispanic community and instill fear in the america public. They are proponents of spending hundreds of millions of dollars to build higher and longer walls and increase the number of agents on the US-Mexico border. The conservatives are also proponents of maintaining the status quo when it comes to the companies and corporations that hire these illegal immigrants.
The penalty for hiring illegal immigrants is minor compared to the harsh treatment of an immigrant often ripped from his family and jailed awaiting a hearing and deportation. Deporting the estimated 10 million plus illegal immigrants is unrealistic

The current penalties are as follows:

There are civil and criminal penalties for hiring illegal aliens. Sec. 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and 8 U.S.C. 1324a, makes it unlawful for any person knowingly to hire, recruit or refer for a fee any alien not authorized to work. An employer that violates these laws can face penalties of:

· $250 to $2,000 fine for each unauthorized individual;

· $2,000 to $5,000 for each employee if the employer has previously been in violation; or

· $3,000 to $10,000 for each individual if the employer was subject to more than one cease and desist order.

The employer could also be fined $100 to $1,000 for each individual “paperwork” violation.

The criminal penalties for a pattern and practice violation can be up to $3,000 for each unauthorized alien, imprisonment up to six months, or both.

A recent study found this:

A new study by Rajeev Goyle and David A. Jaeger for the Center for American Progress in Washington calculates the cost of mass deportation to be at least $206 billion over five years. The annual cost of $41 billion would exceed the entire budget of the Department of Homeland Security ($34.2 billion) and would be more than double the annual spending on border and transportation security ($19.3 billion).

The only way to stem the tide of illegal immigration is to make the penalties to employers so repugnant that they will go to great lengths to make sure they are hiring properly documented workers. If there are no jobs available for illegal immigrants than they won’t have a reason to cross the border.

I suggest we stop the focus on the immigrant and place it on the employers that hire them. Here are some penalty suggestions to stem the tide of illegal immigration:

$5,000 and 6 months mandatory jail time on the first conviction. ( Business principal or CEO would serve the time )

$10,000 and 3 years mandatory prison time and forfeiture of business property and equipment on the second conviction. ( Business principal or CEO would serve the time )

$250,000 and 15 years mandatory prison time and forfeiture of business property and equipment on the third conviction. ( Business principal or CEO would serve the time )

This would also have the added benefit of creating jobs for US Citizens and increasing tax revenue and lowering the deficit. The problem is, you won’t see a conservative touting a measure that would actually stem the tide of illegal workers. It would cut into the profits of the companies and corporations that support them. They would rather just hurl hate and lies and make you fear a minority rather than solve the problem they rail against.

Constitution Party Member Alan Keyes Threatens President Obama And Should Be Arrested

Constitution Party Member Alan Keyes has clearly threatened President Barack Obama and should be arrested and charged.

Here is the threat:

Obama is a radical communist and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it is coming true. He is going to destroy this country and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist,”

See it on video for yourself:

This is not the first President Alan Keyes has threatened. Here is another quote I found of Keyes:

“…the Second Amendment is really in the Constitution to give men like Bill Clinton something to think about when their ambition gets particularly overinflated.” – Keyes giving a cryptic threat against President Clinton.

Beware of the Constitution Party : Part I – No Votes for African Americans

Founding Father Thomas Jefferson said:

“Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites.”  (ref. Bartlett’s 16th Ed., p.343)

The Constitution Party Preamble says:

“The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States.”

According to the Constitution Party platform in the Election Reform Section they will repeal the Voting Rights Act of 1965 which:

“outlawed discriminatory voting practices that had been responsible for the widespread disenfranchisement of African Americans in the United States. Echoing the language of the 15th Amendment, the Act prohibited states from imposing any “voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure … to deny or abridge the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color. “Specifically, Congress intended the Act to outlaw the practice of requiring otherwise qualified voters to pass literary tests in order to register to vote, a principal means by which southern states had prevented African-Americans from exercising the franchise.”

The Constitution Party is clearly a refuge for Hate and Intolerance. They are recruiting Christians that should beware of the hate filled intent of a political party that advocates white supremacy. If you do some research you will soon find that the  Constitution Party is really a pseudo-confederate organization that want to turn the clock back and undo the US Civil War and give total sovereignty back to the states. This will allow the bigoted and ignorant to return to the hatred and racism our forefathers fought and died to end.

The Constitution Party a.k.a The Southern Confederate Party Promotes Hate and Injustice

I did a little research on a group of extremists calling themselves the Constitution Party. It seems to be a very dangerous group that if it had its was would through America into a government ruled by hate mongers and bigots. All of the quotes I have laid out are from their actual party platform. Here is the address if you care to check them out for yourself. HERE IS THE LINK

The Preamble eludes to Christianity being the only religion allowed under a Constitution Party government.

“This great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been and are afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

“The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.”

Hate and Hate Crimes are allowed under a Constitution Party government.

“We are opposed to “hate crime” legislation and to enhanced penalties for so called hate crimes. We recognize that a real result of the designation of “hate crime” is to extend federal jurisdiction to crimes which would otherwise be in the province of the states.”

If you are a victim rape or a victim of incest that’s just too bad.

“We affirm the God-given legal personhood of all unborn human beings, without exception. As to matters of rape and incest, it is unconscionable to take the life of an innocent child for the crimes of his father.”

You won’t be allowed to elect your Senator, the state will do that for you.

“If we are to see a return to the states those powers, programs, and sources of revenue that the federal government has unconstitutionally taken away, then it is also vital that we repeal the Seventeenth Amendment and return to state legislatures the function of electing the U.S. Senate.”

Don’t worry about having an army, the local militia rednecks will protect you.

“We support a well-trained and highly organized volunteer state home militia,”

“We fully support well regulated militias organized at the state level. Further, we fully support and encourage the restoration of unorganized militia at the county and community level”

There are no more woman’s rights

“We reject the policies and practices that permit women to train for or participate in combat. Because of the radical feminization of the military over the past two decades, it must be recognized that these “advances” undermine the integrity, morale, and performance of our military organizations by dual qualification standards and forced integration.”

Who needs education ?

“Because the federal government has absolutely no jurisdiction concerning the education of our children, the United States Department of Education should be abolished; all federal legislation related to education should be repealed.”

African Americans  don’t get to vote anymore under a Constitution Party government.

“The Voting Rights Act should be repealed”

What this would repeal:

The National Voting Rights Act of 1965 outlawed discriminatory voting practices that had been responsible for the widespread disenfranchisement of African Americans in the United States. Echoing the language of the 15th amendment, the Act prohibited states from imposing any “voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure … to deny or abridge the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color.”

Screw the environment:

“We also call for repeal of federal wetlands legislation and the federal Endangered Species Act”

Gay people have no rights under a Constitution Party government.

“We oppose all efforts to impose a new sexual legal order through the federal court system. We stand against so-called “sexual orientation” and “hate crime” statutes that attempt to legitimize inappropriate sexual behavior and to stifle public resistance to its expression. We oppose government funding of “partner” benefits for unmarried individuals. Finally, we oppose any legal recognition of homosexual unions.”

“We affirm the value of the father and the mother in the home, and we oppose efforts to legalize adoption of children by homosexual singles or couples”

No More Immigration

“We favor a moratorium on immigration to these United States, except in extreme hardship cases or in other individual special circumstances,”

Only the free speech the Constitution Party allows.

“We call on our local, state and federal governments to uphold our cherished First Amendment right to free speech by vigorously enforcing our laws against obscenity to maintain a degree of separation between that which is truly speech and that which only seeks to distort and destroy.”

Eliminate Social Security

“The Constitution grants no authority to the federal government to administrate a Social Security system. The Constitution Party advocates phasing out the entire Social Security program, while continuing to meet the obligations already incurred under the system. Until the current Social Security system can be responsibly phased out”

Reverse who won  the US Civil War

“The Constitution delegated few, enumerated powers to the Federal Government, reserving all remaining powers to the States and the people. Thus, powers of the Federal were the exception.”

On Washington DC and Puerto Rico

“We oppose any effort to confer statehood on the District of Columbia or any representation in Congress comparable to that of an independent state in the federal union.”

“We oppose efforts to confer statehood upon the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or expand statehood beyond the current fifty states.”

These people are a serious threat to the United States and the rights of its citizens. They have taken a bunch of hate mongers, KKK and white supremacists, and thrown in some religious intolerance and are calling it the Constitution Party. This is the modern Nazi Party if there ever was one.
