Buddy Roemer on Immigration
Former Governor (R-LA); frontrunner for AmericansElect presidential nomination
A: The border needs to be sealed. We are a nation of immigrants, but it must be LEGAL. You start with a sealed border--sealed, no holes. Second, you hav a green card program which allows workers to come for jobs when no Americans are available. Under law, you hold the card-holder AND the hiring company responsible for the conduct and presence of the worker with fines for violations and non-acceptance in the program for repeat violations. Offer a 6-month period in which companies would not be fined if they turnover illegals. After that period, there will be fines for discovery of illegals working at a US company. No amnesty, but I would allow a parole- citizen committee from the region to interview any illegal that authorities think might have a case for not being shipped back to the mother-country, i.e., military service, special jobs skills, etc. This would be rare, but could be good for America.
