Immigration Reform Proposal Due to overwhelming factors in my life (mainly stemming from not having had a day off of work all month), I have not been blogging as much or reading as much news as I ought. That being said, I want to address the immigration reform bills being considered in Congress. The House passed a bill that would make the act of being in this country without authorization a felony. The Senate wants to drop the criminal sanctions component and grant some sort of amnesty, and provide a mechanism where immigrants can register with the federal government.
Critics of the Senate plan have pointed out that there is nothing to encourage illegal immigrants to do anything different under their plan. Might I suggest a compromise: All immigrants who are in this country illegally must report themselves to the appropriate government agency -- failure to do so will constitute a felony. At that point, all people with jobs will be allowed to stay for at least two more years, or even indefinitely if they are fluent and literate in English. Those who do not have jobs will be deported. This bill should also require a border fence. That might just pass the Senate. I think I will write my Senators tomorrow. _____________________________________________
