…one party tells them (illegal aliens — ed.) to get to the back of the line, pay taxes, undergo background checks and learn English. And, in the meantime, they want to spend billions for enhanced border security. Is this really constructive or obstructionist?
I don’t understand what’s so damn obstructionist about making illegal aliens fulfill what should be the basic requirements for citizenship. All the American citizens here now pay taxes and the lion’s share of them speak English. And really, are we going to benefit by letting more people like Ángel Maturino Reséndiz and Humberto Leal into the country? (Yes, that may well be a very small minority of illegals, but if it saves just one life…Hey, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander!) Why should we give the illegals special treatment?
Oh, wait. Because not to do so would be racist, according to LULAC, La Raza, et al. Plus they’re a prized voting bloc, so there you go.
