Illegal Immigration, are Laws Broken?

Updated on March 22, 2010

How Many Laws can Illegals Break?

Recently, an elected representative made the statement, that many illegals only break one law of illegal entry. Otherwise they are tax paying, hardworking, law abiding people. I disagree with that comment, I have yet to find or hear of an illegal alien that has broken only the one law of illegal entry. Granted there maybe a few, someone that is supported entirely by relatives, doesn't drive, work, or receive any governmental aid in any form directly or indirectly.

So what laws do they break? Let's see,

1. Illegal entry.

2.Drive w/o a valid license

3.No vehicle insurance

4.No vehicle registration

5.Working w/o a valid Social Security Number

6.Fraud/Theft-Working using someone elses Social Security information, identity theft.

7.Working in the underground economy.(income not reported)

8.Failure to file Federal Tax Return.

9.Failure to file State Tax Return.

This does not include other ways that illegals negatively affect us, such as;

1.Use of social services, food stamps, housing.

2.Use of emergency services, fire, police, hospital emergency services.

3.Hold jobs that legal immigrants, and citizens could fill.

4.Pay money to labor unions that is used for political purposes.

With this all said, the next question is what should we do? Again, this certain representative stated that they should be fined, allowed to stay, mandated English classes, and given citizen status. How does that square with equality and fair play? Lets take securities fraud, if I run an investment fraud, and I am caught, I would be required to return the money I took, plus any money that I or others had earned by direct or indirect means, even if I, or they were unaware it was a scam. In other words, any fruit from the tree of the crime is forfeited. All property, money, and any fine should be required to pay, and immediate deportation. What about their families, the poor children, elderly parents, sick wife etc? They made the decision to enter illegally, their poor judgement, and failure to follow the law, placed their loved ones into that situation and they are accountable for what happens. I would never place my family or my belongings in a position to be forfeited. They are deported and then apply for entry legally just like everyone else.

We need to secure our borders, review our immigration policy regarding numbers allowed, and most of all, whatever laws we place on the books, enforce them. Use e-verify, fine employers, unions and any other company or association that profits from illegals, or hires them.

    Agreed, all those Americans on welfare ( who are physically able too) should either work those jobs, and stop living off others, via our welfare system, or starve.

    As layed out in the Bible, if abled body people refuse to work, they should not eat.

    Very rightly stated. I agree with you completely Mr. Davis. It is sad that this has been allowed to continue for years and instead of being punished, such behavior is being rewarded. No wonder our country is in financial trouble, it's like we have to financially bail out everyone, regardless of whether they keep the law or not. Excellent hub.
