Immigration Policy - Granite Grok

Immigration Policy

Strong immigration policy is foundational to remaining a nation. It is part of what has made the United States exceptional. Today the debate over immigration and border security is toxic. Many are simply paralyzed on the issue. The result is the security of all Americans is being held hostage. The Marxist open borders agenda is rising as a result of our unwillingness to respond and act.

Leftist position is internally inconsistent…

The Leftist win at all cost approach is extreme. So extreme they have voted down positions they themselves have proposed. It is time for the hypocrisy to end. Quit moving the goalposts. We need to implement legislation banning illegal immigrants from voting. Not a citizen… no voting in local, state, and federal elections. It’s a simple concept. Why can’t the Democrat party grasp it?

Principles…

What are your guiding principles on immigration? Haven’t thought much about it? Try these on for size: Immigration law must respect the will of the people. People who are not born in America do not have a fundamental right to citizenship. The law comes from the consent of legal citizens.

Security…

Shouldn’t immigration policy respect and not compromise our national security? Immigrants should not be allowed in if they are carriers of contagious diseases. They should abide by our laws. They should share our principles and values. We should determine where they are from and whether they were valued citizens at home.

American principles and values…

Doesn’t becoming a citizen mean becoming an American? In order to continue to be “one nation under God,” does that not require assimilation? Are we looking to import a new set of values and principles? Are we offering opportunity and prosperity?

Rule of Law…

Shouldn’t our elected officials respect the rule of law? Doesn’t that include immigration? Why do we tolerate sanctuary? How does sanctuary not harm us financially, and in terms of preserving our values and principles? America has to love itself and take care of itself in order to be able to better help others.

Conclusion:

America has done more in a relatively short period of time to improve the standard of living of more people than any super power in the history of the world. Isn’t that a good thing? We have not accumulated an American empire as have previous powers did do. We have worked to make more people, more free and more prosperous. That’s a good thing. Yet many inside America want to tear her down. If you understand why… let’s hear your reasoning…
