William Gheen Suggests County Sheriffs Arrest Obama For Immigration Action

A national organization of county sheriffs will be gathering in Washington next month to protest President Obama’s executive action on immigration, and anti-immigrant activist William Gheen has an idea for what they can do in their spare time: arrest the president!

Gheen, the head of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, told WorldNetDaily today that the sheriffs have the “power and ability to arrest the president of the United States” and should consider deciding to “use their power to do this.”

Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who is organizing the event, did not comment on Gheen’s suggestion, but did tell WND that the Obama administration is using immigration to “overburden the existing system until it collapses” in order to replace it with a “socialist system.”

He also suggested that the U.S. government emulate Israel’s intense militarized border security on the southern border.

Hodgson said he has been calling for officials in Washington to bring in Israeli border security officials as consultants to help map out a comprehensive border security plan.

“Frankly … because nobody is better at border security than the Israelis,” he said.

Hodgson said he believes there’s more to it than just Washington lacking the will to do what’s right. He believes the Obama administration has sinister motives.

“They want to build a socialist system,” he said.

And how do you do that?

“You overburden the existing system until it collapses,” he said. “We can’t let it happen. Our Founding Fathers would disown us if we let it happen.”

Gheen, of ALIPAC, said he had a suggestion that he wishes the sheriffs would consider when they pay a visit to the nation’s capital next month.

“If the sheriffs are heading to Washington, how about suggesting the sheriffs take some of their best men to D.C. and they use their power and ability to arrest the president of the United States?” Gheen said. “I think if the sheriffs are going to Washington on Dec. 10 and the president continues to violate the Constitution of the United States, that they should consider arresting the president of the United States. What if the sheriffs decided to use their power to do this?”

Steve King Compares Immigration Standoff To Fighting ISIS; Keeps Shutdown, Censure & Impeachment On The Table

In an interview with WorldNetDaily today, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, compared the congressional GOP’s standoff with President Obama over immigration reform to the fight against ISIS, saying that the Republican caucus should be prepared to “use all the constitutional means at our disposal” and not take a government shutdown or impeachment proceedings off the table.”

“The president is holding a right hostage to an ultimatum,” he said. “We have a right to secure borders, we have a right to demand and expect that our president enforce the law, but he’s giving us an ultimatum that Congress can either pass amnesty or he’s going to commit it by a constitutional violation.”

“I think that we can’t take cutting off funding off the table,” he continued. “It’s about the equivalent of saying in the fight against ISIS that there will be no boots on the ground. Republicans should not make those kind of mistakes that the president has made in his messaging to ISIS. So that means that we should use all the constitutional means at our disposal.”

He added that “I want to do the minimum possible to restore the constitution,” which could include “cutting off the funding,” passing a motion to censure the president, or impeachment, which he called “the last resort, not one that I favor at all.”
 

 

Kobach Wonders If Hispanic Majority Would Conduct 'Ethnic Cleansing' In U.S.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a leader in the anti-immigrant movement, said during his Sunday radio program that it’s possible that a Hispanic majority in the U.S. could conduct an “ethnic cleansing.”

Kobach made his remarks in response to a caller who asked, “What happens, if you know your history, when one culture or one race or one religion overwhelms another culture or race?”

Claiming that immigrant rights groups are “calling for the return of the Spanish territory, which could be almost half of the United States,” the caller warned, “When one race or culture overwhelms another culture, they run them out or they kill them. And it’s a bigger issue than just being Democrats. And they know in numbers, once the numbers are so bad, they can pretty much do whatever they want to do.”

“What protects us in America from any kind of ethnic cleansing is the rule of law, of course,” Kobach responded. “And the rule of law used to be unassailable, used to be taken for granted in America. And now, of course, we have a president who disregards the law when it suits his interests. So, while I normally would answer that by saying, ‘Steve, of course we have the rule of law, that could never happen in America,’ I wonder what could happen. I still don’t think it’s going to happen in America, but I have to admit, things are strange and they are happening.”

Earlier in the program, Kobach used a more subtle form of racial dog-whistle by accusing Democrats of “replacing American voters” with "socialist" Hispanic voters. While reading polls about political attitudes broken out by race, Kobach said that “if you look at it through an ethnic lens,” Democrats want to create a “a locked-in vote for socialism” by “replacing American voters with newly legalized aliens.”

Anti-Immigrant Activists: Obama Inciting Civil War By Making Immigration Announcement On Mexico's Revolution Day

Today, President Obama is scheduled to announce that he will grant temporary deportation relief to some immigrants living in the country illegally. Today also happens to be the Mexican holiday of “Revolution Day,” which commemorates the start of the Mexican Revolution in 1910. At least two anti-immigrant activists think this is not a coincidence.

In a press release today — which has already been dotingly covered by the Washington Times – anti-immigrant extremists William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and James Neighbors of Overpasses for America claim that by picking today for his announcement, Obama is creating “a permanent symbolic relationship between his actions and Mexico’s violent revolutionary and civil wars from 1910-1920!”

"Obama is making a powerful and dangerous symbolic declaration to large Spanish media audiences today comparing his new immigration orders to the violent Mexican revolution and civil war!" Gheen writes in the release, claiming that the decisions of major networks not to air the speech are meant to “keep most US citizens oblivious” as Obama sends a revolutionary message to Spanish-speaking viewers.

Unbeknownst to most Americans, Barack Obama currently plans to issue an edict that defies current US Laws and the US Constitution by establishing amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants on Mexican Revolution Day 2014, which is traditionally celebrated on November 20 in Mexico and by Mexicans everywhere.

November 20 is Mexican "Revolution Day" or Mexican "Civil War Day" which is the equivalent of America's 4th of July. Obama's choice of this date for his departure from his Oath of Office and the US Constitution creates a permanent symbolic relationship between his actions and Mexico's violent revolutionary and civil wars from 1910-1920!

"Obama is making a powerful and dangerous symbolic declaration to large Spanish media audiences today comparing his new immigration orders to the violent Mexican revolution and civil war!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Obama is timing his move to thwart the American public's voice in Congress to coincide with Mexican Revolution Day and the Ferguson verdict while CBS, ABC, and NBC will keep most US citizens oblivious tonight!"

In case it wasn't clear what they were getting at, Gheen included this image in an email to supporters promoting the press release:

Phyllis Schlafly: Obama Immigration Announcement Could Lead To Civil War

Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly believes that President Obama’s upcoming announcement on new steps to relieve some undocumented immigrants from the threat of deportation could trigger a second Civil War.

She told WorldNetDaily’s Paul Bremmer yesterday that Obama’s executive action on immigration resembles the Southern bombardment of Fort Sumter, which led to the beginning of the Civil War, adding that the move is even more inscrutable than Pearl Harbor bombing because “with Pearl Harbor, the American people knew what was happening.”

President Obama’s looming executive action on immigration reform represents a Fort Sumter-type moment, according to conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly.

Schlafly at first considered comparing the Obama amnesty to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor but decided that Obama’s plan is much more subtle.

“With Pearl Harbor, the American people knew what was happening,” she said.

But Fort Sumter, where the opening shots of the Civil War were fired, represented the beginning of a ruinous conflict, and Schlafly, like fellow conservative luminary Richard Viguerie, speculates that an executive amnesty might touch off a sort of modern-day conflagration.



She is also skeptical of the idea that beneficiaries of Obama’s amnesty will be barred from receiving health-care subsidies.

“No, I don’t think he will deny them Obamacare,” she said.

So is the president lying?

“I think he lies about everything,” Schlafly said.

Allen West Predicts An 'Incredible Cry' For Obama's Impeachment

Former Florida congressman Allen West, who has previously called for Congress to impeach President Obama, said on Newsmax today that after Obama makes his planned announcement on immigration, Americans will express an “incredible cry” for his impeachment.

When host Steve Malzberg asked him whether Republicans push for impeachment, West responded that the president’s immigration announcement will provoke “an incredible cry from the American people” so that Republicans won’t even “need to talk about it.”

Rep. Kelly: Impeaching Obama Not Off The Table Because He's Dragging America Into A Civil War

Rep. Mike Kelly, Republican of Pennsylvania, reacted angrily today to President Obama’s indication that he will soon temporarily relieve some undocumented immigrants of the threat of deportation, telling Newsmax host Ed Berliner that such a move will push the country into an “internal crisis” not seen since the days leading up to the Civil War.

Kelly told Berliner that House Republicans shouldn’t take impeachment off the table:

“The country is witnessing something right now that I don’t think in our entire history we’ve ever looked at, a constitutional crisis,” he said, calling it “sickening” that many Democrats have applauded Obama’s immigration stance.

Of course, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush also used executive action to change status of certain undocumented immigrants.

He also harkened back to the Civil War and recommended that the president read Rick Warren’s book “A Purpose Driven Life” to temper his ego: Right now in the history of our country we have never had such an internal crisis as we’ve had, not since the mid-1800s, of what we’re going through right now. Why would this president choose this issue and cause a constitutional crisis? I really suggest to him, there’s a book out that I read years ago, it was really a turning point in my life, by pastor Rick Warren and it’s called ‘A Purpose Driven Life’ and the very first words: ‘It’s not about me.’ This is the president who everything is about him, it’s about his legacy or what he’s going to say is his legacy. I would hate to see him go down in history, or maybe he wants to go down in history, as the guy who tore America apart.

Pamela Geller: Immigration Action 'Death Knell' Of America

Anti-Muslim blogger Pamela Geller yesterday appeared on “The Janet Mefferd Show” where she warned that President Obama’s expected executive action on immigration will be a boon to terrorists.

After Mefferd said that radical Islamic militants might as well “gather at the Mexican border and just come across because executive amnesty is a-coming,” Geller cited false claims about border patrol agents finding Muslim prayer rugs at the southern border. Federal officials have also denied allegations that terrorists are crossing into the U.S. through Mexico.

“If you’re going to open up amnesty, I mean, that is the death knell,” she said.

“America better get a clue,” Geller said later in the program. “These beheadings are not going to stay contained in Iraq.”

Lamenting that “we were enormously safer under Bush,” Geller said that the U.S. is like a “stagecoach that’s careening off towards a cliff, the driver has fallen off and America is in the backseat of the carriage drinking tea.”

Pat Robertson: Obama And 'Snaky' Harry Reid Trying To Trick Republicans Into 'Extreme Move'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson argued that President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who he called “a snaky sort of individual,” will push for temporary deportation relief for some immigrants as a “set-up to trap the Republicans into making some extreme move” such as shutting down the government.

“It’s just incredible because it’s a political grab and you wonder what are they playing for,” he said. “I said yesterday and the day before that it’s no question it’s a set-up on this immigration thing, it’s a set-up to trap the Republicans into making some extreme move or to build a constitutional crisis where it looked like they have shut the government down.

“We can’t have that happen, so they’ve got to take a very cautious approach to how they stop the president. But they can shut him down in a number of other ways, and they have got to do it.”

Heritage Fellow: Obama Will Use Government 'Goodies' To Replace Americans With Latino Immigrants

Discussing President Obama’s likely executive action on immigration with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios today, Heritage Foundation senior fellow Mike Gonzalez suggested that the president wants to swap freedom-loving Americans with government-worshiping Latinos as part of his plan to weed out liberty from the country.

After Rios read an excerpt from a Federation for American Immigration Reform report claiming that an executive action would “open up federal and state benefits to individuals that are illegal immigrants,” Gonzalez said “Obama’s calculus” is to use undocumented immigrants to breed support for “big government.”

(Noncitizens under the Obama administration’s current deferred action program — which would be expanded under the proposed executive action — are not eligible for any federal benefits and do not have a path to citizenship and voting rights.)

“The reason he wants to do this is because he believes that these people, when they become voters, will support Big Government,” Gonzalez said. “For them to be assimilated into the ‘new America’ that the president and the progressives around him are trying to create, they need to be acclimated right away to being on government services, to liking government services, to think of the government as being a benevolent dispenser of goodies.”

He added that Obama plans to undermine the country’s “experiment in human freedom and prosperity” by replacing native-born Americans with immigrants who want a bigger government: “In order to change it, they need to create a people that like and look upon government as benevolent and a provider.”

Rios agreed, saying that Latino immigrants are “accustomed to government sort of being the ruler, they’re not used to self-rule or self-decisions.” She insisted that the “poison pill” of government will weaken Latino families just as she believes it damaged the black community.

Lamar Smith: Democrats Want Immigration Action Because They're 'Banking On' New Votes

Rep. Lamar Smith, Republican of Texas, said today that the “extreme fringe of the Democratic Party” is supporting an executive action providing deportation relief to some undocumented immigrants because it “wants to treat those from other countries better than we treat our own American citizens” and ultimately is “banking” on the votes of new immigrants.

“It’s amazing that an American president, a United States president, would put the interest of those who don’t live in the country or are in the country illegally ahead of the interest of American citizens,” Smith told Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth.

When Hayworth asked Smith about far-right columnist Selwyn Duke’s argument that deportation relief would amount to a “get-out-the-vote drive” for Democrats, Smith agreed, saying “demographics” indicate that immigrants covered under the proposed executive action — which does not include a path to citizenship or voting rights — will give 80 percent of their votes to Democrats.

“I wish that weren’t the case, but those are the demographics and the president and the Democratic Party are banking on them, and that’s why I say they’re putting the interest of other individuals ahead of the interests of U.S. citizens,” he said.

Richard Viguerie Thinks Republicans And Democrats Alike Want To Impeach Obama

In an interview yesterday with WorldNetDaily’s Radio America, longtime conservative activist Richard Viguerie predicted that “a lot of Democrats” would back a GOP effort to impeach President Obama, or at least a vote to shut down the government, over his planned executive actions on immigration reform.

Viguerie said that voters of all stripes would back impeachment, which has the support of a majority of Republicans but only a third of Americans, because they would realize that Obama is “threatening our very form of government.”

I think the American people expect somebody who is threatening our very form of government, to be very, very serious and impeach the president if that’s the case or shut down the government, do whatever it is that will be effective in stopping this massive grasp for power. A lot of Democrats will support this action too because this is now threatening our form of government here. I think the grassroots, not only Republicans but the grassroots voters do expect some serious opposition to granting amnesty to maybe up to 6 million illegal aliens. I think if the Republican leaders were serious they would find the American people would be very supportive of strong action.

He said Republican congressional leaders shouldn’t just “talk a tough game” but finally move to impeach Obama to stop his looming dictatorship.

“It’s such a threat to our democracy that the Republicans should use all means available to oppose this effort, including impeachment as well as shutting down the government if that’s what it takes to protect our form of government,” he said. “We can’t allow Obama to become a dictator.”

Viguerie said that such actions wouldn’t damage the popularity of the GOP, insisting that “the American people are behind the Republican leaders in an effort to stop this outrageous usurpation of power.”

Schlafly: Impeach Obama For Advocating 'Suicide For America,' Turning U.S. 'Into Something Like The Third World Countries'

Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly believes that President Obama’s upcoming announcement on temporary relief for some undocumented immigrants will lead to “suicide for America because he would be bringing in people who will vote Democratic.”

“I think it’s worth impeachment, but I don’t think that’s going to happen,” she told the far-right outlet WorldNetDaily, adding that the president wants to “bring us down” and “fundamentally transform our country into something like the Third-World countries.”

“If he goes ahead with his plans, I think it’s suicide for America, because he would be bringing in people who will vote Democratic. That’s his plan,” Schlafly said. “And bringing people the American people do not want, and he’s already bringing in all kinds of diseases.”

Schlafly doesn’t think the United States would survive in its current form under a massive grant of amnesty. She even agreed the collapse may happen by 2025, as conservative author Patrick Buchanan suggested in the title of his 2011 book, “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

“[Obama] is trying to fundamentally transform our country into something like the Third-World countries, because he thinks it’s just really unfair that we’re better, richer, freer and more prosperous, and he’d like to bring us down to the level of other countries,” Schlafly said.

The longtime conservative activist said she expects another border surge, like the one this past summer, once word of Obama’s “deferred action” plan spreads throughout Central America. She also thinks amnesty by executive action rises to the level of a high crime or misdemeanor.

“I think it’s worth impeachment, but I don’t think that’s going to happen,” Schlafly said.



She sees Obama and other Democratic Party leaders as complicit in the importation of people who don’t share the American value of self-reliance.

“The Democrats know perfectly well that the people coming in are people who are not accustomed to our ideas of self-government and limited government, and they expect government to take care of them, and that’s what we’re doing,” Schlafly said in an interview.

Tony Perkins: Impeach Obama For Immigration Action

Yesterday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins once again called for President Obama’s impeachment, telling “Washington Watch” listeners that Obama deserves to be impeached for using executive action to relieve some immigrants of deportation.

“What the president is about to do on amnesty is essentially tell, using his authority as the chief executive, the president, to the executive branch, Homeland Security, immigration, not to enforce the law, which is a violation of his oath to uphold the law,” Perkins said. “I think there is already, but clearly with this, if he takes this approach on amnesty and immigration — if the president does not uphold the law then that’s an impeachable act. Now you don’t impeach somebody because you don’t like their policies, it’s when they fail to uphold or abide by the law.”

Perkins added that Obama’s imminent announcement on immigration policy will undermine the republic, arguing that the message of last week’s election was a rejection of Obama’s “lawlessness.”

Steve King: Immigration Action Would Send Country 'Descending Abruptly Into An Abyss'

In an interview this week with Rick Santorum, who was guest-hosting Steve Deace’s radio program, Rep. Steve King of Iowa said that if President Obama takes  executive action to grant deportation relief to some immigrants, he may push for Congress to shut down the government or impeach President Obama in order to prevent the country from “descending abruptly into an abyss that we have never seen in the history of this country.”

King said that if the president were to issue such an order, he would advocate for Congress to only pass a spending bill funding the government until January “so that we could address this thing by shutting off the funding.”

“I don’t want to go down the path that would bring us to where the confrontation between Congress and Bill Clinton in 1998, but neither would I take it off the table,” King said, referring to impeachment. He then compared his strategy for confronting Obama with the president’s national security policy: “The president has said some things like no boots on the ground and the war in Afghanistan is over at the end of 2014. You don’t make those kinds of predictions and you don’t unilaterally disarm. You use all the constitutional tools at our disposal. ”

“Our constitution will be torn asunder if we let the president do this,” King continued.

“What he’s contemplating doing is the equivalent of standing up in front of America, opening up the Constitution, taking ahold of Article 1 — all of the congressional legislative authority — tearing that out and putting it in his shirt pocket and saying, ‘I’ll do the lawmaking in this country, it’s not your business, Congress.’ If we let that happen, our constitutional republic is descending abruptly into an abyss that we have never seen in the history of this country.”

As the American Immigration Council has documented, every president since Eisenhower has used executive authority to grant “temporary immigration relief to one or more groups in need of assistance.”

Sandy Rios: Impeach 'Socialistic' Obama For Immigration Action

The American Family Association’s Sandy Rios today called on conservatives to voice their support for impeaching President Obama over his upcoming executive action on immigration reform, telling listeners that “the president has committed many impeachable offenses but impeachment cannot take place unless the will of the people is behind it.”

“The word that no one wants to talk about is the word ‘impeachment,’” Rios said on her daily radio show, insisting that Obama “is far more dangerous than Bill Clinton ever was.”

“Bill Clinton was immoral, selfish, a narcissist with a leftist view, but nothing, nothing, nothing compared to the bizarre, out-of-control, narcissistic, leftist, socialistic leader that we have right now who is running amok,” she said.

At least one of her listeners seems to think that Obama may cancel the next presidential election, telling Rios that the president “is a Muslim and believes in the Muslim life” who is “trying to bankrupt this nation so that he can declare martial law and therefore there will be no more elections.”

Rios replied that the caller is right to believe that “part of his goal is bankrupting the country, I don’t know how you can argue otherwise because that is exactly what he is doing and I think whether he is waiting for martial law to be declared or not I don’t know, I hear from people in the know here that he is trying to divide and cause tremendous dissension in the Republican Party.”

Sandy Rios: How Dare Obama Issue Immigration Relief Before Thanksgiving!

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association is angry that President Obama may announce a major overhaul of immigration policy just before Thanksgiving, saying that the proposed deportation relief for many undocumented immigrants, such as the parents of U.S. citizens, shows the left’s contempt towards family values.

“Remember Obamacare was finally voted in on Christmas Eve? This is what they do because they have no regard for, I’m not saying Thanksgiving is sacred, but it’s sacred in the sense that people are thankful, bow before God, celebrate the holidays with their families, at least Americans used to, but the left doesn’t, that’s not so much important to them,” she said.

“What’s important to them is having their way and altering and changing this country as aggressively as they possibly can no matter what it takes.”

Michael Savage Demands GOP Block Loretta Lynch: 'A Lynch Mob Is About Take Over'

Right-wing talk show host Michael Savage wants the GOP to reject Loretta Lynch’s nomination to be Attorney General, telling radio listeners on Tuesday that Lynch’s name is a bad omen.

“What a telling name, Lynch – a lynch mob is about to take over,” Savage said. “This woman is a radical that should never be confirmed for the Attorney General’s office. She is as dangerous if not more dangerous than Holder. She has no business in the Attorney General’s office; she is an extreme left-wing ideologue. Just understand what’s at stake: If he puts this one in, we’re going to have two years of Hell in this country.

Savage especially took issue with Lynch’s opposition to new laws restricting voting rights, which disproportionately affect African-Americans, calling her a “radical leftist” pawn of Al Sharpton who is “too biased to be an Attorney General.”

Savage also reiterated his demand that Republican in Congress move to arrest President Obama, whom he called a “lunatic” and a “megalomaniac,” for his likely executive action on immigration policy.

“Arrest the man,” he said. “Arrest him, go and arrest him, take the sergeant at arms and arrest the man.”

Judson Philips: Shut Down The Government Over Immigration Or Foreign Ebola Patients

In an interview with Newsmax yesterday, Tea Party Nation founder Judson Philips urged soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to keep the threat of a government shutdown “on the table.”

Claiming that last year’s government shutdown helped Republicans, Phillips said that Republicans in Congress should be ready to shut down the government if President Obama takes executive action to prevent the deportation of some undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., or if he brings “non-American Ebola patients to this country.”

The conservative media has latched onto an undated State Department memo discussing options for treating non-U.S. citizen medical personnel who contract Ebola, but the administration has firmly denied having plans to bring noncitizen Ebola patients into the United States for treatment.

Ben Carson Will Crack Down On Non-Citizens Committing Voter Fraud By Revoking Their Citizenship

As he prepares his bid for president, WorldNetDaily columnist Ben Carson unveiled today his “common-sense prescriptions” and “bipartisan solutions” for U.S. immigration policy, calling for the creation of a guest-worker program and insisting that undocumented immigrants in the country leave before they can attain legal status.

The Republican activist bravely offered the very new idea that he wants to “have secure borders,” calling on the government to adopt policies “learned from security personnel in prisons and other secured facilities” while lamenting that children of undocumented immigrants can enroll in public schools, a constitutional right.

Carson also demanded that the government begin deporting undocumented immigrants for the extremely rare incidents of voter fraud… and revoking the citizenship that they do not have: “Anyone caught involved in voter fraud should be immediately deported and have his citizenship revoked.”

It is time for Congress to act and to do so in a bipartisan fashion that engenders the confidence of the American people. There are many common-sense prescriptions within reach of our government. It is time to seize them.

To begin to solve this problem, we must first have some understanding of why it exists. Despite all of its problems, America is still the place of dreams. As such, it is small wonder that so many from other nations would like to live here.

Right now, we have very porous borders and unenthusiastic and inconsistent enforcement of immigration laws. Further incentives for illegal immigration are easy enrollment in public schools, easy employment for those willing to take jobs others don’t want, easy access to health care and easy acquisition of public support through welfare programs. Yet this population cannot participate in the formal workforce, which means they cannot contribute fully to their local economies.



A national guest-worker program makes sense and seems to work well in Canada. Non-citizens would have to apply for a guest-worker permit and have a guaranteed job awaiting them. Taxes would be paid at a rate commensurate with other U.S. workers, and special visas would allow for easy entry and egress across borders. Guest-worker status would be granted to individuals and not to groups.

People already here illegally could apply for guest-worker status from outside of the country. This means they would have to leave first. They should in no way be rewarded for having broken our laws, but if they are wise, they will arrange with their employer before they leave to immediately offer them a legal job as soon as their application is received. When they return, they still would not be U.S. citizens, but they would be legal, and they would be paying taxes. Only jobs that are vacant as a result of a lack of interest by American citizens should be eligible for the guest-worker program.



All of this is irrelevant unless we have secure borders. There is much that can be learned from security personnel in prisons and other secured facilities, and there is a great deal of smart technology that can be employed to achieve secure borders. It is a matter of will rather than ability.

As long as we reward people who break laws, they will continue to break laws. We do need a continual flow of immigrants, but choosers need not be beggars. We make decisions based on our needs. People who refuse to comply with the rules must forfeit chances of legalization in the future. Anyone caught involved in voter fraud should be immediately deported and have his citizenship revoked. The point is this: We must create a system that disincentivizes illegal immigration and upholds the rule of law while providing us with a steady stream of immigrants from other nations who will strengthen our society. Let’s solve the problem and stop playing political football.

Rep.

Instead, Jones said yesterday, they should pursue impeachment. Jones told Newsmax host J.D.
