Reforming Immigration


From Insurgentopinions.com – Today Obamamania took to the streets to talk about immigration reform.  The President used his powers of oration to declare that “everywhere people have expressed frustration with a system that seems fundamentally broken”.

Speaking of fundamentally broken

The system isn’t broken though.  Nearly every country on the planet has a similar immigration system and acceptance into the country based mostly on whether or not you’re awesome enough that there aren’t enough people of your skill level within our borders.  Basically in order to fall into the awesome category, you need an advanced degree, have a special skill, or be awesome in some other way.

For the sake of a little humor, I’m blending two very different circumstances though, temporary or permanent workers vs. the naturalization process.  Bastardizing the naturalization process is what Dear Leader is talking about.  The Democratic party wants amnesty for illegal immigrants and, in particular, they want to be loud about it during election years.

“The fact is, that without bipartisan support… we cannot solve this problem. Reform that brings accountability to our immigration system cannot pass without Republican votes.”  Accountability to who???  What the heck is his excellency talking about???  I would be fine with accountability.  Accountability would be addressing the whole “illegal” portion of the illegal immigrant problem preferably through the deportation process.

Congratulations! You’ve won an all expense paid permanent vacation!

Unless there is an amendment I’m unaware of, Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution is quite clear:

The Congress shall have power to establish a uniform rule of Naturalization.

In response, Congress passed a series of laws creating required uniform rule of Naturalization.  Sec. 316 of the United States Code (a)(3) reads:

during all the periods referred to in this subsection has been and still is a person of good moral character, attached to the principles of the Constitution of the United States, and well disposed to the good order and happiness of the United States.

Amnesty would therefore be unconstitutional anyways (even though we’ve done it before) because amnesty isn’t uniform when looked at by a foreign individual attempting to legally follow the established uniform naturalization process.  It also gives an unfair advantage to people who, by way of their illegal status, are not “attached to the principles of the Constitution” which is how we, as American’s, have decided one criteria to consider when deciding who we want to allow into our country.  If we allow amnesty, or immigration reform, as our President would call it, our rule of law in this country might as well look like this

Someone should fix that…
