Those who like Sarah Palin as a political candidate need to think twice before voting for her if they don't believe in any form of amnesty for the illegal aliens now residing in this country unlawfully.

In an October, 2008 interview by Univision.com Sarah Palin is asked about her thoughts on illegal immigration

Here is link to article, which is found on page 2

http://www.google.com/search?q=Inte...=univision.com&hl=en&rlz=1T4GGLL_enUS321US321

The following excerpts are her response:

"Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?

"No, I do not. I do not. Not total amnesty. You know, people have got to follow the rules. They've got to follow the bar, and we have got to make sure that there is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in line for services being provided and those opportunities that this great country provides.

"To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?

"I do because I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be treated equally and fairly in this country."

For those who totally oppose illegal immigration as I do you had better check her position on the matter and if it hasn't changed you might choose another candidate.

I can't see that she, by saying this, doesn't oppose illegal immigration?
Indeed. What I take away from that is she opposes illegal immigration and thinks citizens/residents should get 1st dibs on services while recognizing that helping otherwise law-abiding illegals become legal is fairer, more piratical and cheaper then deporting them all.

1 of the few logical things she's said, actually.

I would think the best thing to do for having less illegal immigration, would be to make immigration easier and to lift some of the restrictions. Compared with other countries, the United States make it almost impossible to immigrate legally. The only way one can immigrate is to take a tourist Visa, find a job as an illegal alien, and then work it one step at a time with a lawyer.

Responding to the recent posts, let me say this. There are now too many immigrants now in this country, be they legal or illegal. This country cannot handle such large numbers. Our cities become overcrowded, particularly schools. Jobs become more scarce so why should we import more workers we so many in this country are out of work, seeking employment.

Yes these people can be deported. President Eisenhower did it and so can our current president. Also why should these law breakers who not only violate our immigration laws but other laws as well, i.e., traffic laws, theft and even murder. 25 Americans die every day either through traffic accidents, violence or outright murder by these illegals.

At an anti immigration rally I attended two years ago in Washington D. C. the illegals tried to break up the rally but Capitol Police intervened so they went in front of the White House shouting in Spanish "f--- America and kill the white American gringo". Personally I do not want any such people living near me as I would fear for my life and not to venture out of my home.

Therefore I oppose any candidate for public office that in any way takes up for these illegals and their constant lawbreaking.

For those interested in the true picture of illegal immigration and its many problems they need to go to NewsWithViews.com and read the many articles posted there by Frosty Wooldridge, who can be considered an expert in the field on illegal immigration, to learn the real facts on this problems. Some of the stories Frosty tells are heartbreaking on the effects of this problem effecting many Americans personally.

in my working career as a blue collar guy I have worked with many illegals.
What is significant of all of them is that they believe we Americans are lazy and that without them nothing gets done.
Also, they have this belief that the land their ancestors had was stolen from them.

For the most part they are pleasant but some have a real nasty attitude towards us and the US.

It probably was. We have an empire that covers 1/2 the planet after all. From the Pacific Rim to the Mid Atlantic and from the Arctic to the South Pacific. Most of that was taken by force of arms.

It seems to me that Sarah wants to be every thing to every one at all times, like a balloon drifting with every breeze. Take away all her cliches and there isn't an idea in her head. She is a perfect follow-on to Ronald Reagan, of whom Maggie Thatcher said, "The poor dear, there's absolutely nothing between his ears."

Well, that's a silly stereotype i wouldn't make. But so far as i know, immigration is an integral part of most Western nations' economies.

Especially those conservatives like Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney who need the services of extra-nationals as cheap labor. One must not expect real Americans like Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney to shell out their few remaining and hard earned shekels to American workers, whose wages are so obviously ruinous and unfair to the employer.

Well, he had a powerful wife, so something must be good between his ears. I would think it insulting to compare Palin with Reagen. Not saying Reagen was fantastic, but how can one have a soccer mom for a President? That's taking things a little far.

Problem is that the US immigration laws as given make it virtually impossible for your average person to immigrate to the United States. Unless you have an expensive lawyer who can help you, and those are mostly to be found in the United States. So virtually the only way to immigrate to the United States is illegally. Unless you are a brilliant something or the other or have specialist knowledge in an area that they need people in. Compare this with Canada with its transparent immigration system where you can even test your elligibility on a Website, then maybe there is a good example that can be followed. Canada makes it easy if you immigrate from the outside in, but very difficult for those who have the appearance of illegal, i.e. came in on a visitor's visa and start the immigration process while they are on a visitor's visa. In the United States it is quite common for someone to arrive on a Visitor's Visa, and then to get illegal employment and the same time hire a lawyer to start working through the immigration steps.
