“The time to fix our broken immigration system is now… We need stronger enforcement on the border and at the workplace… But for reform to work, we also must respond to what pulls people to America… Where we can reunite families, we should. Where we can bring in more foreign-born workers with the skills our economy needs, we should.” — Barack Obama, Statement on U.S. Senate Floor, May 23, 2007

The Obama-Biden Plan

For too long, politicians in Washington have exploited the immigration issue to divide the nation rather than find real solutions. Our broken immigration system can only be fixed by putting politics aside and offering a complete solution that secures our border, enforces our laws, and reaffirms our heritage as a nation of [LEGAL] immigrants.

Create Secure Borders: Protect the integrity of our borders. Support additional personnel, infrastructure and technology on the border and at our ports of entry.

Improve Our Immigration System: Fix the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy and increase (DECREASE) the number of legal immigrants to keep families together (in their home country) and meet the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill (ensure employers hire AMERICAN employees).

Remove Incentives to Enter Illegally: Remove incentives to enter the country illegally by cracking down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants (and government agencies who provide tax-payer funded assistance).

Bring People Out of the Shadows: Support a system that allows undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line (on the other side of the border) for the opportunity to become citizens.

Work with Mexico: Promote economic development in Mexico to decrease illegal immigration (ONLY if they agree to stop ALL illegals from leaving their country).

(Ed. note — from a reader ….. Harold why not post this on your site and get people to write to them in answer to the illegal alien dilemma? At least we can all say that we tried it their way… for all the good it might do. Linda)
