Immigration Reform: Yes or No!

What’s it going to be?

The President says he believes there’s a good chance of passing immigration legislation this year. Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan says no.

You can’t have it both ways. Somebody’s going to lose, and as usual, it’s going to be us, the American citizen.

I’m tired of this whole subject, aren’t you?  Year after year after year the Republicans feign interest in immigration reform and the Democrats, drooling at the chance for some kind of win, give in to almost all the Republican demands, and just when you think something’s going to happen–Bang! “Nope, we’re not going to even talk about immigration.” Then more negotiations. More compromises by the Democrats–Bang! “Nope, we’re not going to talk about immigration.”

Me thinks I see a pattern here.

We have been debating this immigration thing for so long I’m getting tired of listening to it. Our lawmakers aren’t going to do anything about this problem, so why talk it into the ground?

The only way the Republicans are going to move on immigration is when they know deep down in their hearts, they have to.

So let’s do it.  Let us for once draw a line in the sand and say,

“ENOUGH! We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it any more.”

What do you think would happen if all the incumbents in the upcoming mid-term elections were to be replaced? Do you think that would send a loud enough message? Do you think then that our lawmakers will remember just exactly who they work for, and I don’t mean lobbyists or party king makers–us!

If they have to join the unemployed because they refused to do what we elected them to do, then I think they might actually HAVE to do something, because come November, if nothing, again, has been done about our immigration catastrophe, the ones still standing may stand to lose their jobs too.

It’s so crazy, it just might work.
