The Republican Party is asking the question, should all illegal aliens be deported?
I don’t think you can deport 22 million illegal aliens. Just not practical. But, in my opinion, they should go through a vetting process to stay here, and the ones with a felony or radical political views should be deported. Vet them and give them a vetting card so they can stay, get a legit social security card, and apply for citizenship like anyone else, but they won’t be deported — unless they commit a felony.
Have a narrow 3-month window when illegal aliens can be vetted — a program with a time limit. After the program ends, illegal aliens without a vetting card will be deported.
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
