IMMIGRATION MADNESS: A Legal Immigrant Weighs In

Former Virginia state attorney Ken Cuccinelli has become acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The new USCIS boss warns that “If the sponsored immigrant receives any federal means-tested public benefits, the sponsor will be expected to reimburse the benefits-granting agency for every dollar of benefits received by the immigrant.” This got Cuccinelli tagged as extremist, when it shouldn’t even be news.
This writer spent childhood stints in Alliance, Ohio, and Detroit, Michigan, but as an adult when I sought to reside in the United States, the government imposed certain requirements. I had to certify that I would not become a public charge, a burden on American taxpayers. I never became a public charge and neither did any member of my family.
So this writer tends to look askance at the acceptance of thousands of people, most of them with few if any job skills, who violate U.S. immigration law for the express purpose of gaining publicly funded benefits. Their sponsors, or home countries, should be on the hook for those costs. And as this legal immigrant sees it, those who accept public benefits should be disqualified from citizenship.
When entering the United States, this writer had to certify that he had a working knowledge of the English language. So this writer is not pleased by thousands of people crashing the border with no knowledge of English and no intention of learning. These illegals are not like other immigrant groups, who never thought they had a claim to the southwestern United States, that they were only entering their own country, and that they are some kind of superior race, as Mexican education minister Jose Vasconcelos wrote in La Raza Cosmica.
