Conservative and innovative immigration policy is essential for today’s Republican party. I believe illegal immigration is immoral, but I would have to agree that I need to find ways to understand and to best present that. All my life as a Mexican-American, I have favored immigration. I want to see all nationalities come legally to this country, the United States, because this country is the place, even today, to fulfill the American dream. However, if we don’t pay attention to illegal immigrants, then we dilute our country with non-American representation and non-usable resources that will stifle the needs of American citizens and permanent residents of all heritages. So, we must find ways to present the pluses without discouraging with the minuses.

I congratulate Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart for his dedication and service to the country. Mr. Diaz-Balart knows there is a price for freedom – the price is high. He diligently worked during his term in office to guaranty these freedoms. I wish him and his family continued success. THANK YOU, HONORABLE LINCOLN DIAZ-BALART!
Why are the lines drawn as they are?
The Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center said the illegal immigrants give to the American economy. I would bet that they really give to the economies of other nations, while they contribute to our economy. Advocates of illegal immigrants tend to miss that Americans really care about illegal immigrants, they just don’t want to neglect Americans, which is what happens. American poor and the working class out of work are the ones who are hurting. All immigrants who want to become American citizens should honestly try to become American citizens first, if they can leave their families and culture back in their country. The United States is still the place to fulfill the American dream.
Republican candidate for the United States Senate from the State of Florida, Marco Rubio, proposes that illegal immigrants should not be counted in the 2010 census. Illegal immigration demonstrates something critical about conflicting goals. Some Americans want to support the illegal immigrants in America, while other Americans want to support Americans who are already legal citizens. Many citizens, of course, are naturalized (born here). The first priority (and I can demonstrate this on a moral basis) are Americans who are already legal citizens. The second priority is to seek federal money to support American citizens. That dollar amount of federal money obtained may be diluted, true. But, certainly and first, American citizens are not diluted. Dilution of American citizens means that they will be even less supported. At this time, they need support, i.e., our own poor and out of work. I suggest the song, “Money Does Not Buy You Love,” does apply here. Marco Rubio will propose that illegal immigration not be counted in the census, which is morally correct.
