Not using those exact words, but he does seem to suggest that illegal immigrants should get some path to citizenship without having to leave the United States. Lets look at his comments on Fox News Sunday:
“You’re going to have to, in some way, work out a deal where they can have some aspirations of citizenship but not make it so easy that it’s unfair to the people waiting in line and abiding by the law.”
Now, you said, “Look, it’s just not realistic that we’re going to round up 12 million people and ship them all out of the country.”
Those statements are contradictory, the only way to make it fair to law abiding immigrants is to require illegals to return home. Otherwise, you are still rewarding them for coming here illegaly, and that is unacceptable.
We need to institute a policy of tamper-proof identification cards and then remove services for illegals. If illegal aliens cannot work, drive, go to school, get non essential medical care, buy a home, or almost any other thing, then they will leave on their own.
Sorry Fred, but your wrong on this one.
