Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani says illegal immigration is not a crime. Technically, he is correct. When you throw an immigrant out of the country, it's not a criminal proceeding. It's a civil proceeding. But, obviously, he is not taking the problem seriously.
"Illegal immigration shouldn't be a crime, either," Giuliani said,"... because the government wouldn't be able to prosecute it. We couldn't prosecute 12 million people. We have only 2 million people in jail right now for all the crimes that are committed in the country, 2.5 million. My solution is close the border to illegal immigration."These statements are a curious way to win the nomination. How is it we can undertake civil proceedings against millions of illegals but not criminal proceedings. Maybe he should suggest a change in the law along the lines of Sensenbrenner, HR 4437. He doesn't explain why we are spending billions of dollars on the Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement if no crime is being committed by illegal aliens. Nor does he deal with the case of the repeat offender who returns to the U.S. after having been deported or removed. That person faces jail time -- a startling turn of events for something that is not a crime. Good luck, Rudy, with trying to close the border without criminal penalties.
Rudy missed the point altogether. You don't have to prosecute 12 million cases to send a message to illegal aliens that they are not welcome here and that we will prosecute as many as we can. All we need is a law that says illegal entry is a felony and visa overstays will be heavily fined and immediately deported. Sorry Rudy, no cigar!

Here's another joke. Why should we pay this guy if our borders remain porous and illegals spread throughout the country with impunity? Who else gets paid for doing such an ineffective job? The least he could do is remove the restrictions on the Border Patrol that prevent them from doing the best they can with the available resources.

Alfred E. Neuman is a proxy for all of those Hispanic Americans and other Americans who support the interests of illegal aliens and foreign governments instead of the U.S. national interest. They don't worry about immigration's unarmed invasion and its deadly consequences. They don't worry about unneeded and unfettered population growth and what it will do to the standard of living and quality of life in the U.S.. They don't worry about climate change, pollution, traffic congestion, extinction of species and dwindling natural resources. They think this is still the 18th century when a vast unsettled continent lay before the founding fathers. They know not what they do.
Trent Lott is one of the Republican Senators in a leadership position who tried to twist arms to enable the passage of the misguided S.1639 immigration reform bill. He is also an alleged racist for remarks he made at the time of the retirement of a fellow senator.

Supported an ill-conceived immigration reform bill that was tantamount to a blanket amnesty for 12-20 million illegals. Twisted arms to try to force the bill through congress. Reportedly said, "If you can get across the Rio Grande, you are welcome." This from someone who is charged with enforcing the law and protecting the U.S. against enemies foreign and domestic.
"...spending billions of dollars deporting these [illegals] is unrealistic and unworkable." He does not explore the possibility of having the illegals, their home governments , and their employers to pay the cost. He regularly weakens any attempt to make English the Official Language of the United States.
President Felipe Calderon of Mexico is not doing enough to give his young people hope for a job and a way to earn a good living. He continues to dump his poor in America's back yard.
Calderon, like his predecessors, Carlos Salinas and Vicente Fox, has failed miserably to establish policies that would create jobs for the Mexican people and to eliminate shameful, unchecked corruption and incompetence in the Mexican government.
