Lars on Administration’s new plan for illegal aliens

The White House has rolled out a brand new plan to get rid of illegal aliens and I think it’s a plan that will work.

Well, I can’t seem to get the Governor of Oregon to come on the air with me. But, I was able to get Tony Snow, the President’s spokesman, to come on last week. What he outlined was a brand new program aimed at getting illegal aliens out of American workplaces. It’s a plan that I think is going to work if the Administration gets behind it, and Tony says they will.

It’s the so called “no match” program that we’ve been talking about on the air for a good long time, the better part of four years, where you simply say, if you’re an American employer and you employee somebody whose name does not match their social security number, the federal government will raid your workplace.

The federal government will kick that employee out and deport them from the county and the federal government will impose both civil (that means fines) and possibly criminal (that means jail time) penalties on anybody who employs those people. It’s a plan that I really think has a good chance of working. We’ll watch them to see how much they do to enforce it.

    I hope the administration follows through. There could be a dramatic change in the country if they do follow through. If it becomes apparent the administration is serious about enforcing the law, there will be a lot of self deportation and a decrease in the flow into the United States of illegal aliens.

    While many illegals are hard working people they are still here illegally. I believe we need to increase immigration but “legal immigration”. We can’t reward illegal activity, let them go back to their own country and apply for citizenship the legal way and fulfill the legal requirements.

    I think the administration plan is great if they follow through. It will expose the unscruptlous employers skirting the laws and reaping huge profits by employing illegals. It will send people back to their countries of origin where they can apply legally and it will secure our borders.

    This action, if followed through on will allow a “guest worker” and migrant worker program that can be implemented and managed for the benefit of all the parties involved. Folks, it’s a common sense solution……………I’m kinda shocked this administration came up with it, too bad it wasn’t 6 years ago.

    iT IS A GOOD PLAN, IT REALLY DOES NEED TO BE FOLLOWED UP WITH A GUEST WORKER PROGRAM. A LOT OF GOOD PEOPLE ARE DENIED LEGAL ACCESS BECAUSE OF A LACK OF EDUCATION. THAT DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE BAD PEOPLE, BUT IF THEY HAVE THE OPTION OF COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY THEY HAVE A POSSIBILITY OF DOING SOMETHING FOR THEMSELVES. IN MEXICO THOSE OPTIONS ARE NOT THERE.

    A-We do NOT need a Guest worker program, here is yet another example of why and more are in this story…
    By Drew DeSilver https://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2003265139_imprices19.html
    Seattle Times business reporter
    More than 7 million illegal immigrants work in the United States. They build houses, pick crops, slaughter cattle, stitch clothes, mow lawns, clean hotel rooms, cook restaurant meals and wash the dishes that come back.
    You might assume that the plentiful supply of low-wage illegal workers would translate into significantly lower prices for the goods and services they produce. In fact, their impact on consumer prices — call it the “illegal-worker discount” — is surprisingly small.
    The bag of Washington state apples you bought last weekend? Probably a few cents cheaper than it otherwise would have been, economists estimate. That steak dinner at a downtown restaurant? Maybe a buck off. Your new house in Subdivision Estates? Hard to say, but perhaps a few thousand dollars less expensive.
    The underlying reason, economists say, is that for most goods the labor — whether legal or illegal, native- or foreign-born — represents only a sliver of the retail price.

    B. We already have 8 worker Visa programs, allowing over 600,000 to come here to work last year and every year for decades (with no exit verification, so many have stayed). This does not include the 700,000 + granted Citizenship last year or the 1.2 Mil. granted Permanent Legal Residence last year & every year for decades.

    C. “Guest” Worker programs are nothing but modern day Slavery, putting the burden of Health Care, Schooling, Housing and crime costs on the backs of the Taxpayers, instead of the Employer.

    I hope no-match plan is fully utilized as I read of Pilgrims’ Pride Chicken plant in TX. has just let over 200 go because of the threat of enforcement.

    There are over 23 Million Adult Americans w/out College diploma NOT working per http://www.numbersusa.com using D.O.L. data.
    They should not be forced to become bilingual or compete with people that will work for any pay.

    Who cares about these supposed jobs Americans will not do? I don’t. If people are here illegally it doesn’t matter to me if they pick lettuce or conduct brain surgery…they need to go home. Period.
    End of report.
