The biggest thing that proponents of giving illegal immigrants amnesty do not understand is one of the words in the description to begin with…illegal.
Meaning that it is against the law. Meaning that if you do it you are probably going to get thrown in jail or in the case of an illegal border crossing sent back to where you came from.
Other countries do it and their penalties are a heck of a lot harsher if known it is done intentionally. Shoot even if it’s purely on accident you can get in trouble.
It wasn’t all that long ago that a woman who was jogging near the US/Canada border accidentally went over to the Canadian side and was so into her jog that she simply just did not realize she was in Canada. She didn’t have any paperwork with her since she was on a run and was detained for a good bit before they finally release her.
Now, a good number of the people that are crossing into the United States illegally aren’t exactly jogging and got lost. They aren’t exactly here with their biggest crime in mind to steal pies that are cooling on a windowsill either.
They are coming to at the very least take advantage of a system that they haven’t chipped into yet. The more severe cases are coming to commit crimes. Liberals know this, they have seen the facts yet they want to give them free passes.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised over the weekend to pass the Dream Act in the new Congress, which would provide amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.
Pelosi, who will likely become the next speaker of the House in January, said in a statement on Saturday that she will work to pass the Dream Act with her new House Democrat majority.
“America draws strength from our long, proud heritage as a nation of immigrants. In the Majority, Democrats will work to reverse the Republicans’ destructive anti-immigrant agenda,” Pelosi contended. “Our House Democratic Majority will once again pass the Dream Act to end the uncertainty and fear inflicted on patriotic young men and women across the country.”
Pelosi released the statement in response to a letter from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which urged Pelosi to take up legislation in the first 100 days of the new term to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal aliens and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) refugees. The Hispanic Caucus stressed that any new legislation should include a “pathway to citizenship,” “an end to immigration laws that tear families apart,” an end to the “militarization of our borderlands,” and a “recommitment to our nation’s founding ideals as a place of refuge for those seeking protection at our borders.”
