The overall solution to the illegal immigration is not an easy one – the problem is complex, and the solutions cannot be oversimplified. There should not be a thinly disguised effort to acquire a new bloc of voters by way of a blanket amnesty, hurriedly passed , in order to get those new voters eligible for this November’s election. While I have some degree of sympathy for those hard-working illegals, who, other than violating immigration laws, have obeyed the laws and been productive, when I look at the tax burden put upon the taxpayers of this country by these immigrants, many who pay no taxes, the sympathy tends to rapidly fade away. That sympathy tends to also fade away when I see recent photos of our American flag flying upside down, underneath the Mexican flag. This happened recently at a public school inCalifornia.

Is there exploitation of the illegal alien workers? Certainly there is, and it should be stopped. It should be stopped by instituting, and enforcing, real penalties for persons exploiting these people.
Another bill to be introduced, thank you Arizona.

Rep. Riddle will be introducing a bill similar to the one recently passed in Arizona that would provide additional emphasis on dealing with the problem of illegal aliens. This is in no way a bill about “profiling” – the salient issue is not skin color or ethnic background – it is about persons entering our country in defiance of federal laws that are not being effectively enforced.
