Question: What Does "Immigraiton Reform" Mean?

I hear all the time in the media that what this country needs is "comprehensive immigration reform." There's a candidate for mayor (who has a hard time being honest) who openly campaigned against Farmers Branch Oridinance 2903, but says he's against illegal immigration and wants the Federal Government to provide "comprehensive immigration reform."

I want to hear from you. I want to know what "comprehensive immigration reform" means. What is that, exactly?

That is A very good Question? If you ask the people who tout it this is the fix to a problem, but can never tell you how they will fix it. If you ask the SMART PERSON like you or I this tells us that the person whom is telling us this is a person who does not want anything done about the problem of ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION or the law breakers that sneak into America! I would also like to tell your readers that a vote for anyone who hides behind this is a vote for changing NOTHING & The DEATH OF AMERICA as we know it!!

These are the same people that brought us campaign finance reform. And you see how well that's working out for us. The solution is not we need new laws but we need to enforce those laws we already have. The same philosohpy could have been applied to campaign finance reform.

I believe Immigration Reform begins with enforcement of current laws and procedures. That said, a few other things come to mind: 1.) By always upholding the law (even things like speed limits and grass height etc) there is an understanding that the authority/laws must be respected and followed. Knowing that we MUST follow the law or we WILL pay the consequences. 2.) By making it difficult for employers who continue to hire people who are illegal. 3.) By only giving benefits to CITIZENS of the US and people with LEGAL visas. Cut off the benefits and the land will not look so enticing. In other countries, if you do not have papers that say you are allowed to be in their country, they haul you off to jail. Why should the US be any different? 4.) When an illegal person is caught, send them back to their countries with an attainable goal of returning legally if they so choose. If you choose not to follow the laws a country you want to live in, then you should not be there. Go somewhere where the laws fit your lifestyle. Living and working in a foreign country has responsibilities and well as benefits. This goes for any country you choose to reside in. You follow the rules or they kick you out, put you in prison (not like US prison where you get clothing and TV and 3 meals a day). Simple as that.
One side note: I hear people say that they don’t have the money due to the economic state. I understand low income and no income. I have been there; I know about being unemployed and not knowing how I would eat that day or pay my bills. Never once did I do something illegal to make my life somehow easier or better.

The ONLY true "immigration reform" is the PROPER enforcement of our CURRENT immigration laws, which means that the ONLY RIGHT place for ILLEGAL aliens is BACK in their OWN countries!
