Mayor: Give illegals a "path to legalization"
by George!


Thursday January 17, 2008, 8:00 AM

Morristown Mayor Donald Cresitello has a reputation as a hard-liner on illegal aliens. But he seems to extend an olive branch in this talk, before the governor's blue-ribbon panel on immigration in New Brunswick last month.

"I'm suggesting that we immediately move forward with an order that would permit all illegals who are in this country to be granted a pathway to legalization," Cresitello said. "The pathway to legalization would not be granting citizenship, would not grant amnesty, but would certainly give people the opportunity to travel back and forth to visit their families, and have an opportunity to be paid a living wage, have an opportunity to be paid all wages they are entitled to."

Cresitello added:

"It is wrong for people to have to get a job on the street. .. Let's give them an opportunity, and an opportunity can be granted through a pathway to legalization.......

Excellent post Neal. Everyone needs to start questioning our elected officials. Bug the crap out of them if thats what it takes! I know a few on here already do. You need to keep on and on. They need to be hammered with your opinions over and over.

I have a feeling the mayor will be out of a job soon. If they don't recall him hopefully he'll be voted out of office in the next election. The very last thing we need to do is start rewarding criminals for breaking the law.

Cool Send em all home where they belong

Legalization for illegal immigrants who have already broken our laws is wrong. I say they should all be sent back to wherever they came from and let their countries worry about how they will live. We can't support the whole world.

NO pathway for those here illegally- Send them back, and make them apply for citizenship the same way we do for others. Amnesty is BULL, and only scoffs at the very laws we have voted into effect.

That's because once people actually sit down and think about the situation clearly and rationally and look at all the viable options, they realize that deporting 12-20 million illegals from this country is completeley unrealistic and the only real alternatives are (a) keep them in the shadows or (b) legalization. Which is better? Hard to say. But deportation is not a realistic option

Besides, someone has to mow Mitt Romney's grass and serve the champagne and caviar at the Romney mansions, so of course deporting them is out of the question.

I would be satisfied with 80% of the illegals tossed out.

As for raw numbers; I suspect that 12-20 million figure includes their Anchor Babies who are US citizens. That would probably leave about 7 million actual illegal immigrants which is still way too high.

I agree and to go further even ONE illegal is to many!

For every illegal immigrant we toss out there is a job for an American worker!

Every one tossed out is one less to support and creates one more job.

Who said deportation is not possible? If history has taught us anything it is that anything is possible.
