This is in response to your article published on the Boston Herald website on Saturday, 30 June of 2007.
Our borders are not secure because the President does not want them secure, and Congress is only to happy to oblige, even though legislation, and funding was passed last year to build a fence. It is a crime that the fence has not been built.
Amnesty would see the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens become 20 to 40 million overnight. Every person who crosses the border illegally is guilty of a felony. Every person who hires them is breaking the law, often numerous laws. The government currently gives both classes of criminals a ‘silent amnesty’ by refusing to enforce laws already on the books.
Yes, Linda, Deportation of Illegals is the next logical step, but only after we primary out certain GOP supporters of amnesty. The majority of the deportations will be self-conducted, after we apply pressure to those who hire them. I have already achieved moderate success locally, just by threatening to report the failure to with hold taxes or file 1099s to the IRS as tax evasion. The IRS even has a rewards system in place as an incentive.
Under current law (the Basic Program), Social Security Numbers can be checked for legitimacy. Sure, mistakes are made, as with any government program—show me a government program free from error, and I’ll show you a fantasy.
How do you enforce the law? By allowing law enforcement to do their job, not by locking up Border Patrol Agents and Sheriff’s Deputies for doing their job. You also allow citizens to report, publicize, and shame employers as well. You’d be surprised at what a few photographs of illegal aliens being picked up for temporary work will do for a company, especially if shown to the right people.
An Amnesty to these illegal aliens would have to be preceded by reimbursing the hundreds of thousands of people who have down it legally.
Are you aware of what a person has to go through to become an American Citizen?
Are you aware of the thousands of dollars, the seemingly endless numbers of forms to be filled out, again and again (with hefty processing fees)–even when repeatedly ‘lost’ by the government?
Are you aware of the number of times an applicant must be fingerprinted, subjected to medical exams?
Are you aware that the person cannot work during this process, and that they must be supported by someone making a certain percentage over the average worker in a year’s time?
Are you aware that the applicant must proove that they are not, and will not, be a burden on society?
Are you aware that a simple infraction of the law will send this person’s efforts down the toilet?
Linda Chavez (and all your friends, too), In My Opinion, you are full of crap of the most disgusting odor.
It is the proponents of Amnesty who will pay in 2008, not the opponents.

There are literally thousands more out there just like these websites, and there are more everyday. There is a revolutionary atmosphere growing in the country, out here in the redstates. Be careful that you heed our words, and enforce the laws already passed.
