True Immigration Reform
by TXPoet, Fort Hard Knox: The liberal left wing media, using Saul Alinsky’s guide, has portrayed the GOP as the Party of “NO”. I think it is about time the GOP actually do something positive. The GOP representatives in Congress for whatever reason seem to always be on the defense. They are reactive instead of being proactive. GOP initiatives, if they are being proposed, never see the light of the media nor the blogosphere. The few initiatives that we have heard about are “compromises” or proposals to counter initiatives by the other side.
I believe it is time for the GOP to take the reins on Immigration Reform and make it their issue. Before the Nov. 2008 elections I wrote three articles on this subject:
Part I: The Silent Majority Wants Immigration Reform
Part II: Let’s Formulate a Plan for Immigration Reform
Part III: Immigration Reform Points
In the third article I offered some simple basic points that would reform the immigration laws. The only thing I would add to my previous reform proposals would be the repeal of the family reunification provisions of the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act. If the GOP actually proposed reforms such as I have put forward they could actually get ahead of the power curve. If the GOP continues to sit back and do nothing they let the liberals dictate the terms.
