    Remove Incentives That Attract Illegal Aliens
    Immigration; Posted on: 2007-08-06 17:03:35 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    "America is bleeding green and red. The green, of course, is the money and the red is the blood of the victims of crimes committed by an ever increasing population of criminal aliens including violent gang members."

    by Michael Cutler

    Apparently, a previously deported criminal alien from Colombia, Pablo Castro, has found a new sort of "work" for "day laborers," he hires them to assist him in burglarizing the homes of well to do residents of towns in Long Island and as far away as Georgia and Florida. When law enforcement authorities ultimately catch up with Mr. Castro, he will not only face criminal charges for his having, allegedly, been involved in the burglaries detailed in a recent news story, he will also be facing prosecution for illegally re-entering the United States after deportation, a crime that caries a maximum penalty for criminal aliens who illegally return to the United States without permission, of up to 20 years of incarceration in a federal prison for that crime alone.

    I heard about this article on the local CBS radio station in New York as I was preparing to attend a news conference in Brewster, New York concerning the plans of the mayor of that town to cooperative with officials from the Guatemalan Consulate to issue identity documents to illegal aliens in Brewster that would enable them to open bank accounts and conduct "business as usual" notwithstanding the fact that they are illegally present in the United States and that their presence in our country represents a violation of law. I am, as you probably know, very concerned about any program that would provide official identity documents to aliens who are unable to verify their true identities. This, in my judgement, represents a grave national security risk for our nation. That is why I have supported the Real ID Act and a significant reason I referred to the Senate Immigration bill as the "Terrorist Assistance and Facilitation Act of 2007."

    The thing that all of us, including of course our politicians, must understand is that it is absolutely essential for all levels of government to be on the same page where the issue of border security and immigration are concerned. The United States possesses some 100,000 miles of border if you include the costal regions of the United States. Additionally their are many international airports in the United States that should be thought of as being part of our borders inasmuch as these airports provide aliens and goods access to the United States.

    There is absolutely no way that our nation could possibly secure all of the border around the United States and deal with the fact that some 40% of the illegal aliens in the United States are believed to enter our country through ports of entry including our many international airports. This is why I stress the fact that immigration must be thought of as a system. It has been said that a chain is as strong as its weakest link. Where immigration is concerned, there are weak links and virtually nonexistent links. When communities create "sanctuaries" for illegal aliens, they provide incentives for aliens to enter our nation in violation of law. The most intelligent strategy to gain control over our borders is to remove the incentives that draw the great majority of illegal aliens across our nation's borders in violation of law.

    When people hire illegal aliens, they are providing incentives for more illegal aliens to enter the United States. In effect, this increases the size of the haystack in which the deadly needles hide. I am referring to criminal aliens and terrorists. Additionally, there is no way that you can simply look at someone and know his intentions. It is, as any homeowner will tell you, a daunting challenge to find honest workers in the construction and home repair trades. That is why it is a great idea to make it a practice to only hire contractors who are licensed. When home owners hire illegal aliens they may be getting into more trouble than they could imagine!
