Gang of 8 Senators: Same Old, Illegal Alien Song and Dance

The gang of 8 senators has hinted that they’ve come up with a plan for immigration reform.  I’m here to tell you this is the same old, song and dance that Americans witness every 20 – 30 years.  The 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Act should’ve been the last straw.  But, here we are again.  They must take us for fools.  And they do.  When the Senate drafts its final bill, compare it to Simpson – Mazzoli.  I bet it will be the same.
Now, let’s cut through the crap.  If we’re going to stop illegal immigration, some fundamental changes have to take place.  The following must be implemented to stop this third-world invasion:

 Repeal the 14th Amendment.  This amendment is the root cause of our illegal immigration problem.  The federal judiciary has usurped States rights by judicial fiat.  Judges have deemed that illegal aliens have a constitutional right to our public schools and taxpayer largess.  Plyler v. Doe is the case that trampled over U.S. citizenship.

Repeal the 17th Amendment.  This amendment has fundamentally changed our federalist system.  States no longer have representation in Congress.  Senators like John McCain and Lindsey Graham consistently undermine their States by advocating for laws at the federal level that are contrary to the will of their fellow citizens.  Repealing the 17th Amendment would allow state legislatures a mechanism to recall rogue senators.
Do away with the ITIN.  Illegal aliens use this tax ID system to gain employment.  It is a form of legitimization.

Finally, only Congress has the right to set rules for naturalization; not the president.  States should have the ability to disregard unlawful executive orders by an imperialist president.
Let’s face the facts.  The federal government is the problem.  They will never be the solution.  Illegal immigration is their creature, and the only way to stop it is at the local level.  That means States must have the ability to deny education, housing, licenses, and all forms of public assistance to illegal aliens.  Take away the teat and they will leave.
