"It is never a bad idea to let the people vote, especially on issues of such importance as aiding and abetting illegal immigration.
The agenda of greedy business interests and the few former lawmen who have now become apologists for criminal activity on illegal immigration is as easy to read as the incrementalism of the illegal alien lobby.
Voters should be asking, "What next?", after driver's privileges. I urge Oregon voters to use the Mexican government as an example of how to deter illegal immigration.
Allowing voters to take a second, more reasoned and educated look at rewarding illegal immigration will no doubt restore common sense to Oregon.
While granting a state-issued ID and capitulating to the corporate-funded illegal alien lobby in their demand for special treatment outside the law and popular opinion may create a false sense of nobility and compassion for the politicians who have surrendered their integrity and oath of office, encouraging black-market labor to enter and remain in Oregon only hurts the trusting unemployed Americans - including legal immigrants who are scratching their heads wondering why they bothered to join the American family according to the law.
Nobody can seriously claim that low-skilled, low-wage illegal workers and their families are not net drains on taxpayer-funded benefits and services. Artificially "cheap," tax-payer-subsidized, illegal labor may be good for the bottom line of the Chamber of Commerce and their political cronies, but not for the beleaguered American middle class.
D.A. King is a nationally recognized authority on immigration and president of the Georgia-based, pro-enforcement immigration watchdog group, the Dustin Inman Society. He has been active in assisting Georgia legislators in crafting legislation aimed at preserving jobs, benefits and services from the ravages of the crime of illegal immigration and illegal employment for more than a decade.
Having staged multiple pro-enforcement rallies in Georgia and Washington DC, he has been profiled in the New York Times, Associated Press and the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He is often quoted in nationally read news articles and appears on many media networks.
A firm advocate of protecting the American worker from black-market labor and unscrupulous employers, he uses Mexico's enthusiastic and effective border and interior immigration/employment enforcement as a goal and example for "metrics" in American enforcement. King notes that a drivers license/card is the defacto "national ID card" in the U.S. and that illegally present aliens cannot obtain a drivers license in most other nations of the world, including Mexico.
