America does not hate any religious beliefs.

WPGA saying30Most normal American’s do not despise any person because of any religious belief. We do detest any group that uses violence to force their religion on others. Each person can decide for themselves what they believe in or not. Americans have labeled many groups that use their beliefs for the use of violence. Some of these groups are the Klu Klux Klan, Neo-Nazi and White supremacy groups, Phineas Priesthood, Jewish Defense League, Army of God and many more. Notice most are using some religious pretext as a reason to use violent behavior upon others as their right from their beliefs.

What we do despise is any group using violence to force their belief on others. Americans did not start out really with an open mind as many believe. The Pilgrims’ came to the Americas to have their religious freedoms but was not tolerant of any other beliefs.
Governor Peter Stuyvesant banned the rights of Quakers to assemble and worship in 1657. Then on 27 December 1657, thirty townspeople of Flushing NY, signed the Flushing Remonstrance protesting this ban in the fight for religious freedom in colonial America.

Now in this new America, pre Constitution, were religious freedoms the norm? No, there were instances where Catholics and Jews were killed for their beliefs. They were forbidden to live in many communities. Most communities and states attempted to enforce strict religious observance. Laws mandated that everyone attend a house of worship and pay taxes that funded the salaries of ministers. Eight of the thirteen British colonies had official, or “established,” churches, and in those colonies dissenters who sought to practice or proselytize a different version of Christianity or a non-Christian faith were sometimes persecuted. Virginia imposed laws obliging all to attend Anglican public worship. Indeed, to any eighteenth century observer, the “legal and social dominance of the Church of England was unmistakable.”After 1750, as Baptist ranks swelled in that colony, the colonial Anglican elite responded to their presence with force. Baptist preachers were frequently arrested. Mobs physically attacked members of the sect, breaking up prayer meetings and sometimes beating participants.

So the norm in many States and communities was not for liberty and freedom but control and forced behavior. The “Bill of Rights” in order to prevent misconception or abuse of its powers had to limit the government from becoming an oppressor and autocracy over the people. The very first Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

American’s evolved to become accepting of others and their beliefs as long as it was not forced on them. Most normal American’s do not hate any religious belief. Americans do hate radical groups that decide that their rights supersede the rights of others. No group has the inherent right to force another to believe any religious concept or allegiance.

Americans do need to learn what any religion is about before jumping to conclusions and take the false perceptions being promoted by mass media. Fanatic extremists are not the true representation for any religious group but they do get the media attention and a misleading branding. Education of the world will open the eyes of non followers, followers as well as the ignorant.

The suggestion on illegal alien reform with a path to citizenship.

With the understanding that the U.S. will not deport all 11 million illegals, I put forward a program that takes a lot of the program from the Mexican laws on Immigration. When we say Illegals is it assumed we refer to only Hispanic persons? Any person who is in the United States of America illegally, not one group but ALL persons who violate the law. They are not “undocumented immigrants” or “unauthorized” aliens, they are illegal aliens! They are breaking the law under the U.S. Code Title 8, section 1325; Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, “Improper Entry by Alien,”

Many people make their first act here committing a crime against our society by entering illegally, then committing fraud and identity theft to work. Many also evade taxes. Many do not respect the laws of the United States of America and do not value any state or local law. Illegals do not show consideration for our laws and should not be given any special determination.

On Immigration we should not reward any person that was breaking the law by giving them blanket amnesty, citizenship or legal status without proper application of the laws of The United States of America. Why should the U. S. A. give any person, who violates our laws and disregards the legal process, amnesty? Illegals do not respect our laws and should not be given any special consideration.

Suggested program for current illegal alien immigration 

Upon entering The United States of America, immigrants must prove who they are, that they are mentally fit, and that they can contribute to American society. Abide by the current immigration laws of the U.S. Any person now illegally present in the U.S. must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. They must request through legal process to remain in the U.S., by submitting the proper procedure of proving their identity (must show a certified birth certificate through the consulate of their origin), criminal background checks from their home country as well as in the United States of America. They must enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” provide a bank statement proving economic independence, and must be physically and mentally able to show they can support themselves without any government support. They must pay the fees required under the laws of the United States of America.  Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Illegals may be deported out of the country immediately as due process and no endless bites at the litigation apple. If a person is here illegally there are no mitigating circumstances if entry into the country was through fraud or without proper entry procedures. An illegal immigrant who forges his documents, or falsifies them by lying when he fills them out, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three. If after 3-5 years of legal status with no legal infractions can apply under the immigration laws of the nation. Section 312 of the Immigration and Nationality Act

Current law requires that naturalization applicants must demonstrate an ability to read, write, and speak words in ordinary usage in the English language, and have a knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government (civics). To meet the requirements of Section 312 of the INA, applicants must pass a naturalization test to become naturalized citizens. The naturalization test consists of two components – English and a civics component.

Law-enforcement officials at all levels — by national mandate — must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal-alien arrests and deportations.

Current immigrant program for agricultural workers:

The current H2-A program lets farmers bring in an UNLIMITED number of legal agricultural guest workers. Under the H-2A temporary agricultural worker visas:

  • If you are a temporary agricultural worker, you must receive a written description of the terms of your employment no later than the first day of work. This document must contain detailed information about the benefits, wages, housing, work duration, and transportation benefits that your employer will provide. • You are entitled to payment at or above a wage that is set by the government. This rate applies whether you are paid hourly or by piece rate. •You do not have to pay either U.S. social security taxes or fees to a labor recruiter in your home country. • Your employer must provide clean and safe housing at no charge. •Your employer must reimburse you for transportation costs from your country to your place of employment, but only after you complete half the contract period; and your employer must pay for your return transportation costs for your trip home after completion of the contract. • You are entitled to guaranteed work for at least 3/4 of the number of workdays stated as the contract period unless you are displaced by a U.S. worker during the first half of the contract period.
