Be fair on immigration...NO amnesty

11-Year-Old Georgia Girl Ordered to Leave U.S. for Poland Over Paperwork Error http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,525750,00.html Is a headline today. Obama wants to give amnesty to 11 million mexicans who came here illegally, yet a family who is trying to do it the right way is going to see their daughter deported.... maybe if they change their last name to Garcia she would be allowed to stay and probably made ...more »

Financial Punishment for those who HIRE Illegal Aliens

I grew up with a Green Card. I have nothing against LEGAL immigrants. I do have something against people who think that the immigration rules do not apply to them. It makes the rest pay for their misbehavior. However, locking up and deporting illegal aliens has been, and continues to be, ineffective, because desperate migrants have little to lose, and even if we dissuade that individual, there are many many more where ...more »

Reform of regulations for ...more »

American citizenship or being a citizen of Heaven

If you had a choice between being an American citizen or being a citizen of Heaven, which would you choose? For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20 I am choosing being a citizen of Heaven since Obama and his team is taking America straight to world citizenship, and then straight to hell. Citizen of Heaven = Thumbs up Citizen of America ...more »

The Tree of Obama

"You will know a tree by it's fruit." Matthew 7:16 The Obama Tree is a black Oak. The leaves protect the tree from the light of truth. The bark is hard and callus to prevent transparency. The fruit is the ACORN, to reproduce itself again and again. The roots of deception go deep into the American soil.

Obama should NOT bring more Cubans to America

Obama is seeking to negotiate with Cuba in order for more Cubans to show up on our door step.

 

Our people have no jobs or job security. We cannot afford to pay for health care for our own people yet Obama wants to bring in more people of color to add to white people's burden! Incredible!

 

NO MORE FOREIGNERS for whites to take care of.

Staple a green card to every advanced degree awarded in the US

The US has made a *huge* investment in my education: I have both a Master's and most of a PhD from good US institutions, and neither has cost me a cent due to receiving fellowships and working as a research assistant. The US has therefore invested something like a quarter of a million dollars in me, only to send me home after my degree (because the F1 student visa is of "nonimmigrant intent"). After paying for me to ...more »

Easier to become a Citizen

Regarding the current illegal immigration issues, part of the problem lies in the required processes to become a United States citizen. It requires too much money (especially if the person in question does not speak English). Perhaps an easier and faster process could be put in place. I once read a quote that said something along the lines of "When we needed immigrants, we welcomed them into our country. When we didn't, ...more »

Employment Based Immigration - Increase visa numbers

Can you believe that if I as an employer want to recruit a foreign national (after a few months of unsuccessful recruiting effort to find ANY US citizens for the position), for a very critical position, it takes me 19 years to bring that person on board in Green Card? Many of these highly skilled individuals are not ready for the "uncertainty" we invite them into in terms of "temporary visa's". So I am forced to wait ...more »

Employment Based Immigration - Remove Country Quota

The original purpose of "country quota" was to support diversity in USA, mainly for family based immigration. The quota doesn't make sense for employment based immigration. EB immigration is to support economic growth of US, and to decrease the shortage of specific skills. So if the special skill is concentrated on one country, you might need more people from that country to decrease the shortage on that skill. Current ...more »

LEGAL immigration - not to be mixed with ILLEGAL immigration

There are many issues with legal immigration, which are very simple issues, and can be solved with very acceptable policy changes. But these changes doesnt happen often because they are mixed with issues of "illegal" immigration. (CIR attempts in last few years). Illegal immigration is a very hot topic, and there are strong arguments from both sides. So CIR is a good thing. But please please.... separate out the "legal" ...more »
