As a long time supporter of the views and columns of Mr. Babbin, I do not like submitting this letter. It has become absolutely obvious that Mr. Bush is and always was part of the problem, not part of the solution. But then it has gone beyond argument that Mr. Bush, as a “compassionate conservative,” is no conservative at all.
Two steps need to be taken immediately to staunch the inundation of our country by this flood of illegals. First, charges, arrests, and high profile prosecutions of high profile businessmen for employing illegal workers in violation of U.S. law must commence at once and be prosecuted with vigor and determination to see said businessmen given jail terms.p>Second, a formal charge should be initiated in the U.S. House of Representatives against Mr. Bush for violation of his Oath of Office. In particular, he has violated that part that call on him to “protect and defend” our country from both foreign and domestic threats. It is provable that the increased immigration flows under George Bush have brought with them the explosion of growth in the violent gang known as MS-13. If one peruses the definitions of “terrorism” and “terrorist,” one can not help but conclude that they are, in fact, terrorists. Mr. Bush adamantly refuses to protect and defend us against the influx of additional gang members. And that is just one example. br> — Ken Shreve /p> p> J.B. does a good job of explaining the right and wrong way to deal with illegals. What he left out of his “cost of the crimes” was drugs. Drugs and their consequences dwarf the cost of other committed crimes. Perhaps all of the other incurred costs combined. Methamphetamine manufactured in Mexico and smuggled across a Texas farmyard winds up in a farming community in Wisconsin or Wyoming, ripping the American lifestyles there to shreds. It is said that if the addiction were a disease it would constitute an epidemic, and it’s only getting worse. Here is a cost that has no price. Forget the fence, bring out the landmines. br> — Russel Ready /p>
First an excellent set of observations. Here is my proposed solution:
1) We have Alternate Minimum Tax (AMT) for individuals. I suggest an Alien Marginal Tax (AMT) for business.
2) Whenever ICE conducts a raid and makes an arrest the ITN of the business is passed to the IRS.
3) The IRS automatically doubles the effective tax rate of the given business for the next three years using the AMT.
4) The IRS will continue the double tax rate thereafter till such time as the given business can prove they no longer hire illegals.
