GOP Bill Could Change Everything At The Border!

The GOP is introducing a bill to make illegal border crossing a felony, rather than a misdemeanor.

As reported by

First time offenders who come into the U.S. illegally are generally charged with a misdemeanor – but a new bill aims to change that.

Legislation introduced by Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., Tuesday would make illegal entry into the U.S. a felony offense, something she said would act as a “disincentive” to people who are thinking of crossing the border.

“The United States government should never prioritize illegal immigrants over American citizens,” Black said in a statement. “By no longer creating incentives to come to our country unlawfully, we also discourage families from sending their children on an often dangerous journey to reach our southern border.”

A felony record would hinder an individual attempting to come into the U.S. legally as it would prevent that person from obtaining a green card, Black told Fox News.

"We are a compassionate nation and we are a country filled with compassionate people. I've been abroad and I've seen the hardships that people go through, but we've got to have some kind of control and order," she said.

What do you think? Is this a good idea?

Get it passed, we need this and the wall. Compassion we’ve given and given and all we get in return is mayhem. They don’t respect what their given, they abuse it. Pass it now. It’s a good start.

It would probably help, but if companies were required to verify the citizenship status of ALL employees, and severely fined should they be found to have illegals working for them, the problem would go away almost over night. The reason we can't get rational immigration laws is that Democrats want them here to vote, and Republicans want to hire them at low wages. Stopping BOTH would fix the problem.
