Can anyone explain how legitimizing an illegal alien be any different from the same person remaining as an illegal alien -- other than being able to conveniently assess taxes?
1. Its easier to track them, with a legal name...not a alias, and a trail ( ownership, taxes, ext) the government will have a greater knowledge if needed about them
2. If you are illegal, its hard to Get a licence...thus you have to drive without one, you often don't have good training....Also far more likely to not be able to get insurance...meaning if you get hit by someone, there is no Insurance company cover you outside your own.
3. Normal Health care....you are forced in a Emergency to go and the government ends up with the bill....as non legal aliens are not able to get Health Insurance without using forged documents
4.Employers cant work you overtime, pay you less then min wage, work without meeting safe working conditions required by law, and other things...as Illegals cant report them...
5. Cant report a crime, Illegals are often targeted for crimes, due to the fact that they fear going to the police as it risks
Other issues would be that
Kids of Illegals,
A. May be legal citizens....but have there parents deported....Punishing the kids more then anyone, and the government then needs to find ways to deal with them
B. If not legal can have a hard time getting into schools, health care or other things that other kids get...they are Punished for the crimes of there parents.
Just a few things I'm sure someone who has looked at this more can bring up more issues. We do need to secure the borders, but we also need to give up the pipe dream about going threw sweeping the nation and sending everyone back. Even if that is one you want, its realy time to give up the dream and push to get real reform done now, rather then hope for this great purge that will never happen, while the border stays open and the problem gets worse.
