Picture caption: What should I do? Please click on the header FRANCE SENDING ILLEGALS HOME Posted Jun 11th 2007 9:27AM by Dinesh D'SouzaFiled under: Breaking News, George Bush, Illegal Immigration Acting under the direction of President Sarkozy, France's immigration minister has set tough new goals for arresting and deporting illegal immigrants. Sarkozy isn't anti-immigrant, but he campaigned on the need to control the flow of immigrants into France and to make sure that they were integrated into French society. France intends to arrest at least 125,000 people this year for illegally entering the country. It wants to deport 25,000 illegals each year. Immigration minister Francois Fillon calmly says, "The French Republic will be extremely firm. It will ensure laws are applied. Naturaly the laws will be applied with the greatest humanity." Can America learn from France? It wouldn't be the first time. Many Americans seem to have lost sight of the simple core principle of the rule of law. We say things like, "But they're such nice people" or "There's work for them to do here" or "Their motives for coming were good." All true, but irrelevant. Laws are made to be obeyed, and the problem with illegal immigration is that it is illegal. That's why many Americans are upset at the current amnesty plan that is being pushed by President Bush, Senator Kennedy and others. It seems to look the other way on breaking the law, while pretending to be tough. Before we figure out what to do with illegals who are here, we have to figure out a way to stop the inflow of new illegals. If France can find the backbone, surely we can too. Mr. President Bush Sir, when do you and your advisors start listening to American citizens? Do we ask too much when we want our laws obeyed by anyone visiting our country? It seems you think you have the right to inflict our laws on foreign countries (like Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, etc., etc.) no matter what they might want to do. But if all these laws of ours aren't going to be recognized right here in the U.S.A., where do we get off telling other cultures how they must live, what laws they must obey? Please explain this to me so I understand and I will back you 100%. But not as things stand now. Herewith my application to become an illegal alien: Application to become an illegal alien (Courtesy of the Peter Boyles Show -- KHOW 630 AM -- Denver) Dear Elected Official, As a native New Mexican and excellent customer of the Internal Revenue Service, I am writing to ask for your assistance. I have contacted the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to determine the process for becoming an illegal alien and they referred me to you. My primary reason for wishing to change my status from U.S. Citizen to illegal alien stems from the bill which was recently passed by the Senate and for which you voted. If my understanding of this bill's provisions is accurate, as an illegal alien who has been in the United States for five years, all I need to do to become a citizen is to pay a $2,000 fine and income taxes for three of the last five years. I know a good deal when I see one and I am anxious to get the process started before everyone figures it out. Simply put, those of us who have been here legally have had to pay taxes every year so I'm excited about the prospect of avoiding two years of taxes in return for paying a $2,000 fine. Is there any way that I can apply to be illegal retroactively? This would yield an excellent result for me and my family because we paid heavy taxes in 2004 and 2005. Additionally, as an illegal alien I could begin using the local emergency room as my primary health care provider. Once I have stopped paying premiums for medical insurance, my accountant figures I could save almost $10,000 a year. Another benefit in gaining illegal status would be that my daughter would receive preferential treatment relative to her law school applications, as well as "in-state" tuition rates for many colleges throughout the United States for my son. Lastly, I understand that illegal status would relieve me of the burden of renewing my driver's license and making those burdensome car insurance premiums. This is very important to me given that I still have college age children driving my car. If you would provide me with an outline of the process to become illegal (retroactively if possible) and copies of the necessary forms, I would be most appreciative. Thank you for your assistance. Your Loyal Constituent, (and hopefully an illegal one)
