ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Commentary column “A compromise to please both left and right?” by William D. Siegel (Thursday) presents a very interesting analysis of the most critical issue of this century, but Mr. Siegel does not seem to take a stand one way or the other, choosing instead just to toss out ideas.

Either Mr. Siegel is not sure of his opinion or his efforts are just a rehash of the situation. Like the politicians and media high-ups who live in gated communities, he probably is exposed rarely to the life-threatening impact of the “compromises” politicians wish the rest of us to accept.

Compromise is a good thing, but this is not a discussion about keeping the neighbor’s dog out of my yard. It is about keeping my neighbor’s uninvited dog, cat, kids, grandparents, cousins, second cousins and future ancestors from entering my yard, house, car, school, hospital, courts, etc., without permission.

Nor is this a discussion of immigration reform. Rather, it is illegal migration of criminal aliens planned, organized and controlled by foreign governments in an ongoing criminal enterprise to profit from the illegal activity and manage it as a major source of income. It is time for the foreign countries participating in this to be severely penalized economically and politically.

The United Sates, like most civilized countries, has had immigration quotas for a very long time. These rules allow for the orderly assimilation of people who have shown a real interest in becoming citizens and providing services to this nation. Without such quotas and their enforcement, the country descends into the kind of anarchy we see today. American citizens pay, to their detriment and that of our valued legal guests, more than $300 billion a year to support 20 million uninvited aliens.

The presidential lineup of George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and now Barack Obama has produced poor stewards of our country’s stability. Through orderly legal immigration, America has become a melting pot that is the envy of the world. Without order, it becomes a chaotic cesspool. Any form of amnesty is nothing more than a free ride for admitted felons. That’s not compromise - it’s capitulation, and the criminals win.
