AZ Dept of Immigration / Illegal Immigrants
This is about the Arizona Dept. of Immigration's Failings::
***I pray you will understand, and leave your feelings, ..Kindly though, as I mean no unkindness***
There is an obvious problem in the state of Arizona, ..people coming across the borders from Mexico into the US, ..also from several other countries. Those who fly here or bravely come across the sea on boats are usually sent back.((The amount of courage it would take to navigate a small boat that far is immesurable, in my eyes, and I wish I could help them all, ..yet I cant.))Yet, there are TONS of Illegals who are NOT caught that have swam across the river or been trucked in across the Mexican/American borders. It grows larger and larger daily. Texas has successfully curtailed this problem quite a bit with the building of huge concrete walls along their borders. Not so in AZ.Here in Arizona, the problem has caused incredible community stress, riots, demonstrations, etc, ..by those who say that they should be able to stay in the US and live as US citizens do, ..even though they are NOT American citizens.They say that they have as much right as we do to work in America, when we CANNOT go to their countries and work or live legally.We would be sent back if we overstayed our time limits, as it should be! Yet, they are apalled if we send them back, and they dont even have a legal passport or ID to begin with! If someone crosses the borders into the US, without the proper documentation, they Should be sent home until they can return in the right manner. The key word is SHOULD be sent home.To their home, not ours. I know how this works, as I have traveled, lived, and worked in many countries besides my own, and always with genuine papers. I, personally have no problems with immigrants, ..IF they migrate legally. I really do understand that those who do anything they can to cross into our state and country is because they want a better life. I swear I do, and I am not writing this as some racist blather. I hate that sort of thing. But, ..our economy really cannot support the stress of illegals anymore, because it is gotten out of control.Especially Arizona. When they cant find work, many have gotten food stamps and welfare, and right now our state is hugely in debt.Also, under the table paying just has to quit, if we are to keep jobs for US citizens. The companies will naturally hire people they dont have to pay a fair wage to, hence leaving those looking for work legally out of a wage.How say you?
***Again, this is not a racist slur of a complaint.***
