Rudy Giuliani says illegal immigration is NOT a crime

He made this statement in an interview with Glenn Beck. Click here to read the transcript. If it is not a crime then don’t we have to rename it. I mean, the word “illegal” sure implies that it is, well……illegal. I know what you are saying, those people should not be called illegal aliens because it might hurt their feelings or their self esteem. The proper term is undocumented workers. But does that really solve the problem? If they are undocumented that means they did not follow the proper channels to immigrate here legally. So then we are right back to the term illegal.
Please don’t get me wrong, I am not against immigration when it is done according to our laws and regulations. Done properly, immigration is good for our country. Done wrong, these people are a drag on our economy. They force the rest of us to pay higher taxes and insurance premiums. The will never produce more for the economy than they take from it. Now I will get off my soapbox.
Having said all that, can we really nominate a guy to run for the Presidency of the United States who feels this way about such an important issue! The answer is a resounding NO!!! How do the American people feel about this issue? Ask John McCain – his campaign has been sunk because of his support for the so-called Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill.
Thankfully we have an alternative – Vote for Fred Thompson!
