Heart, Brain and Cain Solution to Immigration Problems.
How can you separate the illegal immigration problem from the economic, unemployment or national security issues? If you can, I’m missing something.
Let’s look at TEXAS. In Texas there are an estimated 1.6 million illegal immigrants are in Texas, according to the Pew Hispanic Center in Washington. An estimated 60k babies are born to illegal in Texas yearly. Since 2002, the births of these children to mothers without adequate financial resources are covered by the U.S. taxpayer; since of course the child is now a legal U.S. Citizen.
Unemployment is higher than it’s been in decades in TEXAS as well as the rest of our country. According to the numbers released by the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus, Texas is the only state where the number of illegal immigrants in the workforce exceeds the number of unemployed citizens and that was in 2010. 81% of the job creations in TEXAS since 2007 have gone to illegal immigrants. Rick Perry has used the job growth in TEXAS to substantiate his bid for the presidency. But 81% of these jobs have gone to illegal immigrants. And
Yes, we must secure the border with whatever means necessary.
- 2. Enforce the laws that are there.
3. Promote the path to citizenship that's already there. We have a path to citizenship for illegal aliens. It's called legal immigration.
4. I happen to agree with empowering the states and allow them to deal with that issue. If we work on the right problem, we will be able to solve it.
