The common concern of all these States is that we have too many illegal immigrants. The Federal Government is not going to do anything for it. So these States take Federal law enforcement in their own hand.
Yet these States bring forth the importance of Comprehensive Immigration Reform. The only problem is that the legislature cant agree on anything. Even the Dream Act, which gives amnesty to children brought over illegally here by their parents, and educated here have not passed. They don’t have any criminal records. Yet the Republicans don’t want to give the Permanent Residency to these people.
The Democrats are no Saints either. They have effectively killed the work visa process for small businesses. Especially hit is the small IT industry, where the Obama Administration “legislated on their own” stating that employers should “control” their employees. They effectively nullified third party contracts for H-1B employees for smaller employers in IT industry. Yet such contracts are Ok for the health care industry. Talk about the Rule of Law and Obama’s lofty principals.
In a Country where even economic reforms gets shot down, willl there be a Comprehensive Immigration Reform? I dont think so.
