Picoblog Question – 2015 – Post #8

Picoblog Question – 2015 – Post #8

Is the current immigration law broken?

My two cents, but please share yours:

No. At the time I wrote this picoblog, our country had 33,315,226 legal immigrants. The process for becoming a citizen may need to be updated for the 21st c., but the law is working for these millions of folks. It isn’t broken. ( http://www.usdebtclock.org/ )

  1. The law may not be broken, but enforcement certainly is. We’ve got so many millions of illegal immigrants we don’t even know how many. We need to stop this, deport those already here, and cut legal quotas. Our population growth is out of hand.

    • The enforcement of the existing law has certainly been appalling, David. I’m not sure what the correct quota level should be, but it should be closely examined and likely adjusted quite a bit. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Nothing wrong with the laws…it’s the enforcement of them that causes the problems. It’s a longstanding problem. Years ago in LA, Calif. the illegals would call LaMigra for a ride to the border if there was a need to get back to Mexico…very efficient. Try to sneak into other countries (including Mexico) and see what happens to you! We are a nation of immigrants, but most of our Great, great relatives came in legally to make something of themselves that they could not do in their home country. If they came for seasonal work, they came without their families, and went home when the seasons were finished. I would like to know where all those ‘train children’ from last summer are now…

    • Good question, Kay. I’m curious about the impact those children may have had on our school systems. Cheers, Ashley
