John McCain’s Position on Illegal Immigration and Criminal Alien Removal?

Posted on February 11, 2008. Filed under: Blogroll, Economics, Immigration, Links, Politics, Quotations, Rants, Raves, Taxes, Video |

 “Trust, but verify.”

~Ronald Reagan 

The American people want controlled limited legal immigration not uncontrolled unlimited illegal immigration.

The American people want all illegal immigrants or criminal aliens to either go home on their own or be deported–criminal alien removal!

The American people want their elected public officials including the President of the United States to enforce existing immigration laws and honor their oath of office.

 “”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

“…Article IV, Section 4, Paragraph 1: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestics Violence. …” 

If 12 to 30 million illegal immigrants crossing US borders is not an invasion, what is?

The President does not have a clue.

He supported the invasion.

Bush Says Amnesty ! Talking about Immigration Bill S 1639 

Time to bring the President out of the shadows.

Start enforcing the law and obeying your oath of office.

Yes to criminal alien removal.

No to comprehensive immigration reform!

Congressman Rohrabacher gets it.

Senator McCain still does not.

Bush vs Rohrabacher, IMMIGRATION, AMNESTY. The truth?

Senator John McCain’s mantra on illegal immigration is secure the borders first.

What exactly does he mean by secure the borders first?

 Border Security & Immigration Reform

“As president, I will secure the border. I will restore the trust Americans should have in the basic competency of their government. A secure border is an essential element of our national security. Tight border security includes not just the entry and exit of people, but also the effective screening of cargo at our ports and other points of entry. …”

Beats me. No mention of a double layered fence with a wide border patrol road in the middle adequately patrolled day and night.

No mention of when the fence will be adequately funded and completed, if ever.

Ilegal Immigration Amnesty is ALIVE – despite 80% of America

What Senator McCain does mention is he will have the State Governors along the border with Mexico certify when they consider their border secure before proceeding with any other measures.

John McCain: Immigration

Not so fast.

First, stop passing the buck, Senator McCain.

 If you are elected President, it is the Federal government’s responsibility to stop the invasion and secure the borders, not the states. Read the Constitution.

Second, the state governors have done little or nothing to stop illegal immigration. Some even favor Open Borders and have opposed the fence in the past.

The state governor certification is a delaying tactic and will not be worth the paper it is printed on.

There is no funding or requirement to a build double layered  fence with a wide road in the middle adequately patrolled day and night.

The states are certainly not in a position to fund such a project and will not do so. 

Governor Perry of Texas supports a fence with holes in it–“strategic fencing”. 

Give me a break!

 Actually he really favors open borders to keep the campaign contributions coming from the business owners that profit from the employment of illegal immigrants.

Perry and the border fence

“There is some strategic fencing that we support. We have said all along that there are areas, particularly in metropolitan areas, that you can use strategic fencing to help control the flow of illegal activities, so what’s going on – there are places in the rural areas that I think it is an absolute waste of time and effort, and there’s some places that we probably support what the federal government is doing and some we don’t. Again, they need to work with those folks at the local level. …”

“Strategic fencing in high-population areas makes sense. But I would like to see the federal government invest resources in increased border security operations like Operation Rio Grande rather than build a 1,200-mile wall.”

 “Building a wall along the entire Texas-Mexico border would not only be cost prohibitive – in the range of billions of dollars – it would create a false sense of security. And unless the federal government is willing to put enforcement personnel all along such a barrier – something it has refused to do for decades along a border without fencing – it will be no more successful at keeping illegal immigrants out of Texas than the Rio Grande River….”

Third, why do we need to wait for the borders to be secure before enforcing laws regarding criminal alien removal and businesses employing criminal aliens?

Senator McCain is kicking the can down the road and delaying what President Bush should have been doing for years.

Some perspective as to how long it takes to build a fence to secure the borders.

 History Panama Canal Construction

President Roosevelt Decides to Build the Panama Canal 

“Theodore Roosevelt became President of the United States in nineteen-oh-one. He firmly believed in expanding American power in the world. To do this, he wanted a strong navy. And he wanted a way for the navy to sail quickly between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Roosevelt decided to build that waterway. …”

“…It took ten years for the United States to complete the Panama Canal. The first ship passed through it in August, nineteen fourteen. …”

You would thing it would take tops two or three years to build the fence that Congressman Duncan showed works in California.

 Furthermore, Senator McCain seldom mentions, unless specifically asked, whether the federal government with the assistance of local and state governments should remove all the immigrants that are here illegally–the criminal aliens.

Notice Senator McCain never mentioned this when he talked about immigration at CPAC.

Why? Money in the form of political campaign contributions.

Businesses of all sizes that profit from and rely on paying lower wages to illegal immigrants are donating money to both the Republican and Democratic Party to make sure the status quo does not change.

“Status quo, you know, that is Latin for “the mess we’re in.”

~ Ronald Reagan

If the border security fence was built, the borders sealed tight and all the illegal immigrants or criminal aliens were removed, cash or checks to both political parties in the form of campaign contributions would significantly decrease. These same businesses would be forced to pay more to American citizens mostly low skilled and poorly educated whites, blacks and hispanics.

The American people do not trust either political party when it comes to illegal immigration.

The American people have had it paying higher local, city, and state taxes to pay for schools, social services, hospitals, jails, and prisons to educate, feed, treat, and lock-up criminal aliens.

Cutting federal taxes while ignoring the economic and tax impacts of illegal immigration is fooling nobody.

Open borders is really a not so hidden huge tax increase on the American people supported by President Bush, a minority of Republicans, and the vast majority of Democrats. The American people are subsidizing those businesses that benefit from a cheap low skilled and compliant work force.

The American people have seen crime including drugs and gang violence increase in the cities where large numbers of criminal aliens are working.

The United States government cannot even tell you how many criminal aliens are in the United States!

Do not believe the 12 million figure, it is more like double that number.

The Democrats are even worse on illegal immigration.

The Democrats are betting that when an amnesty bill is passed under their “comprehensive immigration reform”, most if not all of the criminal aliens will become registered Democratic voters.

If they do, the Democrats see many decades of political power.

The American people are mad as hell about illegal immigration.

The Republican and Democratic party establishment and elites better wake up or you will be facing another American revolution.

Enforce the existing laws on immigration and obey your oath of office.

Otherwise you will be replaced.

 Background Articles and Videos

  Meet the open borders family: McCain, Hernandez, Soros, and the “Reform Institute”

“…Via Discover the Networks, you’ll see that Soros’s OSI is a key open borders funder–providing support to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund; the Immigrant Legal Resource Center; the National Immigration Law Center; the National Immigration Forum; the National Council of La Raza; and the American Immigration Law Foundation.

Remind me again which party’s presidential nomination John McCain is running for?…” 




John McCain funded by Soros since 2001
Candidate’s Reform Institute also accepted funds from Teresa Kerry

“…In 2001, McCain founded the Alexandria, Va.-based Reform Institute as a vehicle to receive funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute and Teresa Heinz Kerry’s Tides Foundation and several other prominent non-profit organizations.
McCain used the institute to promote his political agenda and provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections. …” “the Reform Institute still employs the McCain campaign’s Hispanic outreach director, Juan Hernandez, as a senior fellow of its Comprehensive Immigration Reform Initiative.As WND reported, Hernandez serves as a non-paid volunteer for the McCain campaign. A dual Mexican-U.S. citizen, he was a member of former President Vicente Fox’s cabinet, representing an estimate 24 million Mexicans living abroad. Hernandez, with a “Mexico first” message, has argued aggressively against building a fence on the Mexican border, insisting the frontier needed to remain wide open so illegal immigrants could easily enter the U.S.The July 6, 2001, homepage of the Reform Institute archived on the Internet lists founder McCain as chairman of the group’s advisory committee.Prominent senior officials on the McCain 2008 presidential campaign staff found generously paid positions at the Reform Institute following the senator’s unsuccessful run for the White House in 2000. …”

Inside McCain’s Reform Institute

 “…But the oddities don’t end at the donors page for Reform Institute. We’ve already detailed how McCain’s chief political advisor earns a six-figure income from the nonprofit which heavily promotes McCain and the BCRA. As the New York Times noted yesterday, RI provides a back-channel method of keeping his campaign staff employed without McCain having to do any fundraising for his political campaigns — and avoiding the donation caps that come into play for his donors. And Davis isn’t the only beneficiary of this loophole. …”

President Bush Addresses the Nation on Immigration Reform 

“…We must begin by recognizing the problems with our immigration system. For decades, the United States has not been in complete control of its borders. As a result, many who want to work in our economy have been able to sneak across our border, and millions have stayed.

Once here, illegal immigrants live in the shadows of our society. Many use forged documents to get jobs, and that makes it difficult for employers to verify that the workers they hire are legal. Illegal immigration puts pressure on public schools and hospitals, it strains state and local budgets, and brings crime to our communities. These are real problems. Yet we must remember that the vast majority of illegal immigrants are decent people who work hard, support their families, practice their faith, and lead responsible lives. They are a part of American life, but they are beyond the reach and protection of American law. …”
