Krauthammer: ´I Would´
Legalize 11 Million Illegals

Breitbart, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 8/5/2014 7:41:32 AM

Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said that he would legalize 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the United States in exchange for enhanced border security. On Monday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Krauthammer argued, “I think if you´re going to do the step of legalizing these 11 million, which I would do, that has to come after you have secured the border, there are a lot of ways to do it.

This is another time I don´t agree with the good Doc. I would make anyone who is here illegally pass a test of some kind or pay a fine. Long-established families who are here illegally should be made to pay the price of breaking our laws, but I wouldn´t deport them. Make them jump through the same hoops that people jump through who are here legally. But newer illegals should be catapulted back where they came from if necessary.

Because that´s worked so well since Reagan did it. Charles would legalize 11,000,000 now and in 10 years probably 11,000,000 more and on and on. All this "compassion" is easy for Charles because no illegal will be taking his job anytime soon and he´ll always get his grass cut cheap. How about some compassion for Americans born in America?

First thought, You Do Not Negotiate With Terrorists.

Dr. K is brilliant, why does he believe that there are only 11 million illegal aliens? It must be much closer to 50 million by now. That should be enough illegals to Fundamentally Transform America to suit the Marxist communists.

A repentant 2008 Obama voter is a good thing, but looking to that same person for conservative wisdom is

Quite another thing.

Looking to that same person for conservative leadership is

Quite, quite another thing, And

Choosing that person as a spokesman for the conservative point of view as a talking head is

Quite, quite, quite another thing.

No way anyone who came here illegally should ever get citizenship period! Maybe give them a work visa at the most. But until the southern border is absolutely secure don´t do anything except deportation. Politicians can´t be trusted. My guess is that the border will never be secured unless there is wholesale change in the current membership of Congress.

I heard him and George Will basically say the same thing on the FNC. They were saying you just can´t deport that many illegals. I say...BeeEss! All it takes is the motivation to do the act. I would volunteer, as I´m sure other retired military would, to round these criminal illegal aliens up and show them the door. And while we are at this, get rid of the anchor baby crap......

Round up all the illegals and put them in interment camps, then sort them out and deport them. They put Japanese citizens in such camps during WW2, so why not these illegals?

Shut down the border, register the illegals who are here, allow them to pay taxes in exchange for benefits, deport anyone with a DUI or any other crime, and never allow anyone of them to become citizens unless they return to their home country and apply like anyone else. Solves the problem without allowing Democrats the illegals´ votes and the monopoly on the legal Hispanic vote...

Tell you what Dr. Krauthammer, lets try enforcing the laws on the books. If we can make that work, then lets talk about what to do with the people already here. If we can´t enforce the laws on the books then there is no reason to believe we can enforce new laws either.

If a bank robber avoids arrest for 5, 10, 15 years, do we say, "Oh, well, his kids need to pay for college, let´s just let him go and keep the money?

How is an invasion of dependent "children" most of whom are older boys, perhaps in their 20s lying about being 16, any less destructive than an invasion of armed combatants?? Is the drain of foster care, food, clothing, shelter, medical care, schooling, legal aid, court hearings, police efforts any less than the drain of explosive destruction of infrastructure??

How about the monetary drain of criminal alien invaders working for cash to avoid payroll taxes, then instead of buying things on the economy, sending most of their earnings home as "remittances"? There should be a 100% "tax" on money sent out of our country without an invoice showing it was an import purchase.

The "law" or "the rules" of legal immigration ensure those entering this country are a net gain for our economy, legal immigrants can´t qualify for most welfare programs. Why do we allow criminals who should not remain in this country receive multiple forms of welfare??

Women who enter this country to give birth to an instant citizen should have to pay hospital bill--in cash--before they gain custody of that child. Many citizen families would gladly adopt a newborn, and not ask for WIC, Food Stamps, Section 8 housing assistance and TANF. Children should be born with their mother´s citizenship, if she can prove she is legally in this country...a visa obtained prior to entry, or some point along the process of naturalization...then her child could receive a "citizen´s birth certificate" otherwise, a birth certificate marked "non-citizen" birth.

If every illegal were to disappear tomorrow, US citizens would step forward to take their jobs, and our unemployment numbers would fall to "normal" percentages.

Krauthammer´s Immigration plan is immaterial as there is no way to secure the borderline as long as there is a President in office who politicizes the immigration laws and allows all comers who show up at the borderline to stay in the USA as is happening now. A President, such as Obama, who continuously disparages and undermines the immigration law is encouraging more mass illegal immigration, the vast majority of who are poor and uneducated people, who the Democrats know will be natural socialist oriented Democrat voters in the years ahead. You can bet that the Democrats are content in importing mass poverty into this country to someday get those tens of millions of new foreign born voters to keep them in power. As long as that attitude continues the borderline cannot ever be made secure and the illegal alien population group that realistically exceeds 20 million aliens will continue to grow.

Before allowing the good doctor´s suggestion. WTP might offer another. As a unit we volunteer to be on the same team. A team that does close the border, the illegals and the lawlessness and plunder witnessed day after day. H´ll WTP fought King George and won, have we forgotten so soon. The time has come for WTP to unite and do the necessary. If there is no alternative, the buck stops with US.

A small number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. will have an opportunity to join the military for the first time in decades under a new Department of Defense policy unveiled Thursday. The new rules will expand an existing program allowing recruiters to target foreign nationals with high-demand skills, mostly rare foreign language expertise or specialized health care training. For the first time, the program — known as Military Accessions in the National Interest, or MAVNI — will be open to immigrants without a proper visa if they came to the U.S. with their parents before age 16.

Missouri Gov.

President Obama is back at the White House today on a pre-scheduled break from his August vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. He’s scheduled to be briefed by Attorney General Eric Holder on the situation in Ferguson early this afternoon. Holder and the administration have been critical of the militarized response to protests in Ferguson.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
