The current Administration continues to partner with Business to bring in and employ undocumented workers. We live in a Political Hypocrisy. We allow the 12M to live in the shadows, drive on our roads, invisible and without identity. We live in a world of true double speak that continues to thrive in our current Administration and which most ANTIs apparently are supporting.
Our economy cannot withstand the Mass Deportation of 12M people. I ask anyone, anyone in Congress or any legitimate economist to prove otherwise. If you do not advocate Mass Deportation, then you need to say so, forthrightly. No one, not one stands up and says they demand Mass Deportation of the 12M.
It is time we bring the 12M out of the shadows. We need Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
That said, in light of the fact that we do not have Comprehensive Immigration Reform solutions in place, the reality is that the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants already in this country will remain here, still more illegal immigrants are likely to come, and those illegal immigrants who can and wish to drive will do so.
Governor Spitzer's plan would result in our gaining more information because it would encourage illegal immigrants to apply for driver's licenses, and to do so in their own names with bona fide documentation.
Governor Spitzer spoke on Hardball yesterday and provide thorough explanation of his state´s policy. Matthews did his best to tear down every argument, but LOST. Spitzer confounded him with Facts, Logic and Reason. Matthews was left in a whimpering puddle.
Once the Transcripts are out today for yesterday´s show, I will provide all of the Governor´s responses.
