Brenda Lenard from the Volunteer State of Tennessee is just such a standard bearer for our American ideals and guiding principles. Bound by the grip of a never ending hope, a belief in brighter tomorrows, of a glorious city upon a hilltop and in a land where liberty and the rule of law are equally applied to all men and to all women, regardless of name, stature or position.
America is exceptional due to the Rule of Law, guaranteed by our Constitution
Immigration laws do not need to be reformed, they need to be enforced
As a diverse people we are united in a common heritage, the love of liberty
Legal immigration is the weave and tapestry of our national character
Recourse for illegal immigrants, employers and politicians who seek to cheapen the currency of our American citizenship
With this stance the promise of freedom for our citizens and future legal immigrants can remain intact
For those who seek to weaken our nation by not abiding her laws and coming here illegally or by overstaying their VISAS, there can be no compromise on the matter, deportation and suspension of the luxury of entering our nation for a period of no less than 10 years.
In terms of employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants, the penalties must be strong and must be convincing. That employer documentation complete, showing they performed their due diligence in the screening process of all employees. Should there be a violation, well, it should make an OSHA inspection look like a day at the beach.
Last but not least, those who seek to undermine our national sense of justice by fundamentally transforming us into a banana republic; vote them out of office and make your voices heard on this fundamental issue.
