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.

Replace “Wrong Way” Joe Wilson with War Veteran and Marine Officer Rob Miller

Poll: Joe Wilson trailing Democratic rival

 

A newly-released poll shows Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C) has seriously endangered his re-election prospects by shouting out “you lie!” during President Obama’s speech to Congress this week.

The poll, commissioned by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, shows that Wilson trails his Democratic opponent Rob Miller, 44 to 43 percent. A sizable 62 percent majority of voters said they disapproved of Wilson’s actions, with only 29 percent approving.

The electorate was closely split on whether President Obama was telling the truth when he said his health care plan would not cover illegal immigrants – 46 percent said he was telling the truth, while 42 percent said they thought the president was lying.

“In a matter of seconds Joe Wilson turned himself from a safe incumbent into one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the country for 2010,” PPP pollster Dean Debnam wrote.

It’s a bit premature to be writing Wilson’s political obituary yet. The congressman won the district with 54 percent of the vote last year, a number depressed by the record level of African-American turnout in a presidential election. And it would be useful to see additional polling in the district before drawing any firm conclusions.

But one thing’s for sure, Miller has raised close to $800,000 since Wilson’s outburst and he’ll have plenty of cash to spend against him during crunch time. That fact alone makes it likely the race will be competitive, and guarantees we’ll be hearing more about Joe Wilson in the months to come.

Fox News Executives and Bill O’Reilly should be arrested for conspiracy to commit murder and domestic terrorism

In the video below you will see Keith Olberman explain how Bill O’Reilly on 28 occasions practically beg people to commit murder and acts of terrorism. Bill O’Rielly is a good example of a form of conservatism that needs to be stamped out and will be. As President and CEO of Fox Rupert Murdoch should be held accountable.

Bill O’Reilly has to bear some of the responsibility. Like the Dr. or not O’Rielly mentioned the Dr. Tiller’s name 28 times on the air and basically taunted people to take action against him. There is a difference between free speech and hate speech. Free Speech does not mean you can yell fire in a crowded theater. Hitler had a propaganda minister that was sentenced to death by a allied military tribunal and he never personally laid hands on one person murdered by the regime. He only spread hate and lies about them. If you are against abortion then get the law changed, don’t murder people. If you work outside the law it kills your cause. According to the law and the Supreme Court abortion is legal now. It doesn’t mean the law is perfect or right, if the people have the will to change the law they will. The law will NOT be changed by murder or violence.

Republicans Lose ANOTHER House Seat : The Republitards Just Don’t Get It

The Republicans lost another house seat by a narrow margin. New York’s 20th District goes to a Democrat after a special election for a vacated seat. 4 years ago this was a Republican stronghold. This is just another sign that the Republican Party is out of touch with mainstream Americans. While the Democrats have been offering solutions, the Republicans have been offering nothing but divisive and hateful commentary. They’re staunch support of corporations and jobs being sent overseas does not ring well with everyday America. With the gap between rich and poor widening, the Republicans are clearly out of step with the working family. They oppose every plan that might help the downtrodden and support every corporate welfare plan that comes down the pike. When you have leaders like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Rielly you get what you pay for. You make your bed, you sleep in it.

NAACP Condemns New York Post President Obama Chimp Cartoon – Join The Fight Against Racism

chimp-2009-02-18-cartoon1

Here is a copy of the letter sent to the New York Post:

I am writing you today to let you know I will not tolerate racist images and caricatures in your newspaper. I ask you to take immediate action to renounce the racist cartoon published in your paper on Wednesday showing two police officers, one with a smoking gun, standing over the body of a bullet-riddled chimp. This blatant exhibit of racism, comparing our commander in chief (also featured signing the stimulus bill on the issue’s facing page) to a dead chimpanzee is unacceptable, given the historic racist stereotypes of African-Americans as being synonymous with monkeys. I strongly urge the immediate firing of the Editor-in-Chief and all those involved in the decision to print the image. I also demand that the New York Post publish a full, unequivocal apology for the misguided decision to print the cartoon.

Your publication sadly reminded me of the reality that even in 2009, when an African American man holds the highest post in the nation, racism is alive and well in the United States, and that we have a long way to go to ensure civil and human rights of all people. There is no room for this kind of insensitivity and divisiveness – they only distract us from the real work that we need to do to foster an era of change, collaboration, and acceptance of all people.

As a supporter of the NAACP, and as a citizen committed to ending racism and promoting civil rights for all people, I ask you to do better.

Citizen Wells, Philip Berg and the Scam Behind President Obama’s Long Form Birth Certificate

Whenever you have an election there are some sore sports or poor losers that will make false acusations against the candidate they didn’t want to win. This has disintigrated into the rediculous with Citizen Wells and Philip J. Berg Esq. Philip Berg has filed spurious claims in the court system claiming that president Obama is not qualified to be the President of the United States. Citizen Wells has been there with him all along the way helping him raise money. Now that these claims have worked all the way through the court system and have been thrown out all the way to the US Supreme Court. The problem I see is that Citizen Wells and Philip J. Berg are still asking for people’s money on their websites to support this spurrios legal claim that has already been through the court system . Where is this money going and how is it all being spent ? Its time for some answers.
