Immigration is a hot topic these days with the determination as to what should be done to reduce the increased “illegal” influx of these seekers of a better life. Immigration is (and always has been) the backbone of increasing the countries population, but that would be “legal” immigration, where the prospective settlers go through the motions (sometimes called Red Tape) to successfully obtain their naturalization papers. Because of all these motions, (or Red tape) those who are desperately looking for the ability to secure a better livelihood, have taken to crossing the nations borders illegally.
It is this group of individuals that have been at the center of controversy with the legislature, who are receiving no end of complaints from constituents trying to provide some semblance of safety and security in their own back Yard. This is a touchy subject, as with the majority of Americans, (not American Indians) their roots can be traced back to some other country, prompting the question, what makes them any better than the same immigrants that are presently seeking a better way of life.
Unfortunately for these newbies, nothing is different, therefore they should have the same rights as those that came before them, period! What makes this situation somewhat different, however, is the need for new blood. Sure you can (and probably do) place quotas on future influxes of immigrants, but that will only serve to prolong the needs of these people who appear to be desperate. The real problem is, what to do to keep the criminal elementout, after all we have plenty of our own.
