The Reason to Legalize Illegal Aliens

The vast majority of illegal aliens are poorly educated.  They compete for many of the jobs held by poorly educated and limited capability Americans.  That drives down the labor rates for the poorest Americans.

I have read the summary of the new immigration law being proposed in the Senate.  There are so many trip wires in the proposed law it does not seem likely that this bill will ever become law.  If it does, those entering the country illegally won’t receive “Registered Provision Immigrant (RPI) legal status” for at least five years and probably even longer.

The proposed law does nothing to prevent aliens who are bent on harming America from becoming legal residence and ultimately citizens.

19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving brother in the Boston bombing became a citizen just last year.  Having gone to American schools he had learned enough to earn his citizenship.

Then there is Alejandrino Honorato who came to the United   States in the early 1980s.  He obtained amnesty thanks to the Reagan amnesty plan.  He has a business that employs 60 people and that is good.  However, he still does not speak English well enough to converse with a reporter from Businessweek.  His story was told in the March 18-24 edition of that magazine.  How did he obtain his citizenship without being able to speak our language?

What do these two people have in common?  Neither really wanted to become Americans.

The Republicans want to compromise with the Democrats on legalization and citizenship of millions of immigrants because they are hoping to garner their votes in future elections.  This has nothing to do with “doing the right thing.”
