A Passive Illegal immigrant is one who entered the country legally but it has overstayed their visa. These immigrants are by and large good folk who are working and contributing to our society. They frequently have fallen prey to the very real logistical nightmare of bureaucratic paperwork. These folks can be easily identified and they should be officially contacted and given a reasonable window to straighten out their legal status. This is not amnesty, it's common sense. But they must pay a fine. There must be a consequence for breaking the law.
On the other hand, the aggressive illegals entered our country illegally to begin with. They should be located by all available L.E. assets, identified, arrested, and deported.
Foster Campbell: Yes
Q: Should illegal immigrants have access to government-subsidized healthcare?
Foster Campbell: Yes, and grant them citizenship
Q: Should working illegal immigrants be given temporary amnesty?
Foster Campbell: Yes, create a simple path to citizenship for immigrants with no criminal record S
A: Fix our economy to attract the countries of Mexico and Canada--then we could without any aggression annex both countries. Expand America.
David authored legislation to block federal funds from going to "sanctuary cities" like San Francisco that ignore federal law and refuse to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement in identifying dangerous illegal aliens.
Mayo said President Barack Obama's hands are tied. "The borders need to be fixed," he said. "If you've got a bipartisan bill that's passed, and then you want to have a party leader who will not even take it to a vote, then what else can you do?"
Maness said that he opposed a path to citizenship. He also said that unaccompanied child migrants who arrive at the Southern border should be sent back to their country of origin.
GRAVES: Strongly Agree
ABRAHAM: Strongly Agree
If we fail in this experiment called th United States, there will be no place left to go. The United States represents the last frontier.
But we must not be a frontier with open borders and I will support efforts to enforce existing laws to close our borders and keep our nation safe.
But Melancon maintained he has a strong stance against illegal immigration. "I have been a staunch hawk on immigration," said Melancon.
Melancon voted for the measure, trying to debunk claims by opponents that it would amount to government-run insurance, health care for illegal immigrants or coverage for high-income families. "Making sure children have health insurance is not only the right thing to do, it's also much more cost-effective for taxpayers than leaving them uninsured and using the emergency room as a primary-care provider," Melancon said.
Vitter opposed the bill, saying it was disproportionately skewed toward states such as New York, which has higher incomes for eligibility than Louisiana, he said. In New York, the program's cutoff for a family of four is $88,200. Louisiana taxpayers shouldn't subsidize those states, Vitter said. "It just makes no sense to me," he said.
Many in the Hispanic community are calling it demeaning, dehumanizing, and degrading. Those in attendance are particularly angry that the Senator has targeted one group of people. ABC26 News called Vitter's campaign, but no one has responded.
