The below link very specifically outlines why we should not trust the promises of politicians on securing our borders. They need to "JUST DO IT"
, then talk about it!http://cis.org/Announcements/failed-promises-immigration-enforcement-timeline
We do not need any new laws or amendments to enforce existing law which has been the law for over 200 years! We become bigger fools when we believe another law that's not going to be enforced will change anything.
Here is but one highlight from a long list of those broken promises:1986
– Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act, which for the first time prohibited the employment of illegal aliens
. This was part of a package that included amnesty for long-term illegal aliens who passed criminal checks, paid fees, and took classes on English language and U.S. civics and history. The promised enforcement started weakly and petered out. It got so bad than in 2004, only 3 employers in the entire nation were fined for hiring illegal aliens. An estimated 7-8 million illegal immigrants continue to hold jobs. And by the way, this bill passed congress only because of the PROMISE of securing our borders, so we would never have this problem again
A new amendment, a new law stating our borders are to be secure changes nothing.
