If, but for the Grace of God.....

If by the grace of God, you and I were not born where we were born in the US, but were born in a small rural community in Mexico and struggled greatly, but were fortunately able to live long enough to be married, and have a small family. In our community in Mexico there were a few individuals who were living comfortably because the bread winner left this small familiar community and illegally crossed the US border to get work, and send money back to their family. Would YOU leave your small community and family in Mexico to illegally cross the US border in order to obtain work, so you could better feed and take care of your family? Again, would YOU illegally cross the US border to take care of family?

Now, who turned a blind eye to all those immigrants illegally crossing the border to get work? We have laws! Through the 90’s and the early part of the 21st century, Congress, “The 435,” did not go after companies who hired illegals, and they did this by the lack of funding, and not putting emphasis on going after businesses who hired illegals. Congress turned a blind eye to illegals crossing the border during that period. Congress if they had the balls could have created visas (“giving away American jobs”) and gone after the businesses who hired illegals. If Congress had gone after businesses who hired illegals, we would not have 11 to 12 million illegals today. So it is Congress, “The 435’s” fault, that we have all these illegals.

Hmm... Who elected almost the same people to Congress, "The 435," every 2 years during this period of great illegal immigration? “We the People” are responsible for reelecting these House members! And they continued to turn a blind eye to all those immigrants illegally crossing the US border in the 90’s and the early part of the 21’st century. So are not "We The People" responsible for the illegal immigrants?

If you do not believe me, research how many businesses were charged and "punished" for hiring illegals during this period. You will be shocked!

Are "We The People" responsible for the 11 to 12 million illegal immigrants?

Do we need to take responsibility for our past mistakes?

Now what is crucially important is jobs!

Looking at our employment situation, and again looking at it through a slightly different paradigm, a plan was developed. With “Ric's Plan” we put Congress, “The 435,” to work for The People...
