A Few Questions About Immigration
As our congress debates over whether to approve the DREAM Act, or vote it down, I've decided to pose a few questions, let folks respond, and see where it heads.
Without further fanfare, here we go.
1. If it can be shown that US policies and practices have had a negative impact on the economy and employment picture of another country, do we have a responsibility to help mitigate that impact?
2. If someone is willing to study hard, get a degree and/or serve our country in the military, is this the type of person we would want as a US citizen?
3. Should the US have set standard rules for obtaining a VISA that are transparent and objective that applicants from other countries can understand and work towards?
4. Can anyone give me a rational explanation as to why a person can come here illegally from Cuba and receive legal status, but someone coming illegally from any other country, communist or not, is subject to deportation?
And finally, number 5.
If everyone who arrived here illegally looked like Salma Hayek, who recently admitted she was once an illegal alien, would we really be so concerned about this?
