End Illegal Alien Disaster as Part of Economic Recovery Plan

End Illegal Alien Disaster as Part of Economic Recovery Plan

By John Lillpop

President-elect Obama has announced his intent to approve a major economic recovery plan upon assuming office on January 20. This plan is envisioned to put millions of Americans to work on roads, bridges, schools, and other infrastructure, which has been long ignored.

It is expected that the plan will cost taxpayers at least one trillion dollars.

While the programs identified for action are important and worthy, there is yet another urgent project that should be addressed:

The public works initiative that America really needs would save all levels of government hundreds of billions of dollars a year in stolen public services; free up to 30 percent of space taken in federal, state and local prisons and jails; improve education dramatically by reducing class sizes and limiting the number of students unable to keep up because of language and cultural barriers; strengthen homeland security during time of war; significantly reduce the number of people without health insurance; and solve the jobs crisis.

Specifically, unemployed and under employed American citizens should be hired to help the federal government end, and reverse, illegal immigration, a problem that has plagued America`s economic, social, cultural, and educational systems.

Those systems were designed and intended for use by tax paying citizens, rather than by free loading illegal aliens.

In working to address the illegal alien disaster, American citizens should be used to complete the border fence between the U.S. and Mexico. That fence should include appropriate fencing in every location where America shares a border with Mexico, and should be given the priority needed to complete the project within six months.

Furthermore, needy American citizens should be used to ferret out and physically return to Mexico the 12-38 million aliens currently here illegally. With minimal training, citizens could be taught how to find illegal aliens and how to work with law enforcement authorities to deport said criminals.

Not only would this project put needy Americans to work on a rule of law issue vital to our sovereignty and independence, but deporting illegals who currently hold jobs would free those positions for citizens.

With America committed to spending trillions of dollars of taxpayer money to revive an ailing economy, let us use this opportunity to fix the illegal alien mess, once and for all, by building a viable border fence and by deporting every last invading criminal back to his or her third world nation of origin.
