If Obama thinks we can not afford-?

If Obama thinks we can not afford-? Topic: If Obama thinks we can not afford-?
July 19, 2019 / By Chrysanta
Question: Obama says we can not afford to deport the illegals. That says he agrees we should deport them but we can not do it because of the cost. A year ago he said a great number of the illegals have already left this country because they could not find work. He also said there are 4 million illegals working in this country in spite of what federal laws mandates. Based on that, why is he still letting illegals work here instead of enforcing the laws and let the illegals "self deport." Between self deportation and deportation of those who commit serious crimes as Obama said, we should be able to reduce the numbers of illegals. Why does Obama refuse to take reasonable action and action he has said he would take in fixing the immigration mess?

Yes, it would cost insane amounts of money and take decades to deport 12 million people at the rate of 400,000 per year. So the solution to illegal immigration is a simple one: make it impossible for illegal aliens to work in this country. That's what Canada does. Nobody without "papers" can work, and employers who hire somebody who is not authorized to work are being punished severely. We could do the same. We can make eVerify, a system that is already in place and working perfectly, mandatory, meaning every employer has to verify the identity and authorization to work of every prospective employee. Fine employers who do not comply severely, take away their business license, and throw them in prison. Unable to find work and provide for themselves, illegal aliens would indeed "self-deport" as Romney called it. Problem solved. Why won t Obama choose to do that? Because he, as well as most politicians in Congress, are being financed by corporate America, and corporate America is the one entity that benefits from exploiting cheap labor.

Avila Originally Answered: When will Obama admit we can't afford his Health Care Plan?
From what I've read, Obama's plan is a combination of both public and private insurance. Only children will be required to have coverage and would subsidize lower-income people to help them pay for insurance. Obama will add an additional tax to businesses that do not offer coverage as a percentage of their payroll. It's still not determined if this will cover the costs of the plan. Here's the big problem with Obama's current plan: people cannot be rejected or charged higher rates because of pre-existing conditions. Since Obama's plan is not true universal health care (you have a choice of public or private options and only children are required to have insurance), this is a HUGE problem. It does not give incentive for people to buy insurance when they are healthy, you can just sign up when you need it. Hint: NY and NJ has this type of plan, and their residents pay one of the highest premiums in the nation. Also, big nationalized plans seemed to be doomed to failure, Medicare and Social Security are two examples. Obama's plan could only work if premiums are kept low enough to encourage healthy people to get coverage. This current plan has NO way of working in it's present form unfortunately because of the issue stated above.

It is cheaper to deport all illegal aliens than to allow them to remain. Illegal aliens have cost Americans over a TRILLION dollars per year every year since at least 2002. Furthermore, studies show the majority will depart if there is a major crackdown & immigration laws are strictly enforced. It is not necessary to deport all of them - make them self-deport. Other myths: less than half of illegal aliens actually work. The majority are dependents. Of those who actually work & earn money, less than half hold regular jobs, and almost all of them use false or stolen identification, SSN, etc. Penalties against employers who knowingly hire persons not authorized to work in the US are necessary, but not enough to solve the problem. Take away welfare, WIC, food stamps, Medicaid, & other benefits. Researchers have found that about half of the claimed "US-born" children of illegal aliens who are collecting welfare, etc, are in fact identity-theft children, and not actually US-born citizens. And the money goes to the illegal aliens, not the child anyway!

You have to remove their source of income and so you bring in a law that requires employers by law to be able to prove each and every employee they have is legally able to work along with very heavy fines $10 -$15k per person when they are found not to have that proof when spot check inspections happen.... that fine then pays towards deporting the illegal

Well, he's my problem. Uncle Oh, known for lying, says that all these illegals are working. Now, whenever someone I know goes to get a job, their applications are ran through DHS before they can be hired. They have to have a ton of ID to prove they are who they say they are. So, all in all, either Obama is lying (again) or DHS is putting illegals to work and denying citizens work (which is also highly probable since it is a government agency). It seems to me that anyone who applies for a job, and is illegal, should be busted and then locked up. If this is all that serious, and they are making it out to be worse than firearm problems, they should do something. Then, with arrests of illegals who commit crimes, we should have them locked up. Deporting them should be easy, and cheap. Trucks for of illegals taken to the boarder and then dropped off, with the military there to make sure they head South. If they can walk into the US, let them walk out. If they have coyotes bring them in, let the same guys take them back out. And, while they're at it, nail them so they end up in prison if they come back.

So have them self deport or just deport a few hundred thousand and millions will follow in compliance with the law.
