They just want a better life

Illegal immigration advocates use the "they want a better life" talking point to justify the illegal alien's violation of the US immigration law.  They just want to mow your lawn, clean your house, take care of their families, etc.  The advocates overlook the myriad of laws broken to come to the US along with the ones they break to remain in the US.  Add to that the laws that they break that may be unrelated to them living in the US illegally.

MLK & illegal immigration

On Monday, the nation celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a visionary who placed the highest value upon the content of one's character and not the color of one's skin.  Eighty-three years after his birth, almost 43 years after his death and with the election of the first Black President in American history, we have so far to go.

Immigration Questions for the Presidential Candidates

When I travel around the United States to participate in debates and panel discussions, or appear on various radio and television programs, I find that many people agree with me on the need for immigration effective law enforcement.  Many become truly frustrated and then ask me what they can do to make the politicians accountable.  They tell me how it seems that no matter what happens our leaders never seem to do what is necessary to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.  During the conversations I have had, these folks also lament about the many other areas in
