On his website, Mark Walker takes a cautious position on immigration. He calls for border security, praises the many contributions of legal immigrants and blames Congress for not fixing the mess. Read it for yourself. http://walker4nc.com/content/page/issues#immigration



But Mark Walker has another website where he has stated a very different position-the legalization of 12 million illegal immigrants.

Here's what Mark Walker says about legalizing 12 million illegal immigrants. “After border security and working with those who’ve legally applied, I would propose legislation that would provide an incremental pathway to legalization for 12 million illegal immigrants. .. If these registered immigrants adhere to the required guidelines, and have partaken in no significant criminal activity, we should allow the legalization process and move forward as one country. ''http://m.yourmobile.me/walker4nc


In this second statement, Mr. Walker talks about making illegal aliens pay taxes and denying them entitlements. That's the same thing Senator Schumer and Senator Rubio say in their amnesty bill. It's curious that Mr. Walker thinks voters are so detached from reality that we would believe the vast majority of illegal aliens even make enough money to owe taxes. At their generally lower income level, they are likely to be part of the expanded group that gets money back beyond what they have paid through various tax credits.

Mr. Walker said at a forum in Rockingham County that we needed to show “compassion” on the illegal immigration issue. That's well and good. But it reminds me of a story a friend recently told me about her boyfriend's son who went to North Dakota for a $21/hour truck driving job. A few days after he arrived, bus loads of Mexicans came in and wages were cut to $14/hour. He moved on to Colorado to look for something better.

Don't Mr. Walker and the rest of the compassion brigade think it might not be so compassionate to keep undercutting the wages of working people in this country?

It will be interesting to see if the media asks Mark Walker about this second website where he endorses a plan for amnesty for 12 million illegal immigrants.

When I first arrived in America in 1998, I was not sure if I was going to like it here, but at the request of my future wife, we decided to give America a try before we made a firm decision on whether or not to stay in America or return to Ireland.

After getting over the initial culture shock (like driving on the wrong side of the road!), I grew to like it here more and more and to appreciate everything America had to offer. I then decided to begin the process of changing my status.

As I began this process, I was amazed at the costs involved. Each form had to be accompanied by a check. In addition, my wife and I were required to take many trips back and forth to the Charlotte INS office (now under the auspices of the Dept. of Homeland Security) because there is no office available to serve the Asheville area, despite there being many illegal Aliens in this area.

I went through so much paperwork; you cannot believe. It has taken me over 6 long years, and thousands of dollars, to get to where I am today. One form alone from the INS(ICE) in 1998 cost $470.00 to submit for consideration.

This was particularly hard on my wife and I as I was prohibited from working and earning a wage until all of these forms were approved and I was issued a permit to work, in spite of the fact that we were required to file our taxes jointly. I actually had to pay taxes before I was allowed to work and earn wages to pay taxes on!


When the time came for me to submit to my INS physical, the closest INS doctor was in Greenville, SC, which required two trips so that my TB test could be read a week later, in addition to the $300 costs of the physical and x-rays.

Also, were it not for the intervention of then-Senator Jesse Helms, I would have been required to repeat this process (and pay for it!) a second time, because your INS(ICE) physical is only good for two years.

During this entire process, I had to prove to the authorities by signing a sworn statement that I would not be accepting any sort of local, state or federal government assistance in any way. This would include food stamps, unemployment, health care, etc. Essentially, my wife had to become my "sponsor," and had to submit her own affidavits showing her current wage, length of employment and anticipated length of future employment.

She basically had to prove that she could provide for the two of us so that at no point during the entire process would I ever become a burden to the United States government, regardless of whether I contributed to our household income or not. However, once I received my green card and my status was changed to a Resident Alien, I no longer needed her sponsorship, which was a relief to us both.


To dare think illegal Aliens should obey the law here!


During this entire process, I had to depend on my wife to be my official “sponsor” and had to prove to the authorities that I would not be a burden on the state, by accepting any form of welfare, food stamps, unemployment compensation or free health care.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS GO THROUGH THAT.


I was required to have a work permit, which cost me in 1998 $195 for every year prior to my being issued my green card.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS GO THROUGH THAT.


I had to prove that I had a Social Security number before I would be issued a N.C. drivers license.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS GO THROUGH THAT.


I had to pay in 1998/99 $135 for a travel permit in order to leave and re-enter the country in case of a family emergency.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS GO THROUGH THAT.


I had to demonstrate a basic knowledge of the English language before being granted citizenship.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS CAN GO THROUGH THAT.


I had to demonstrate a basic knowledge of U.S. history before being granted citizenship.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS CAN GO THROUGH THAT.


I had to wait until I became a U.S. citizen, before I was allowed to vote in an election.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT.


I had to undergo a complete Federal Background Check, several times over.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS EVER GO THROUGH THAT.


I had to be fingerprinted on Six separate occasions, despite the fact that fingerprints do not change over time.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT.


I had to demonstrate my fitness to be a U.S. citizen by upholding every law.

NO ILLEGAL ALIENS CAN DO THAT, BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALREADY VIOLATED THE LAW BY BEING HERE illegally IN THE FIRST PLACE.


Do you think it’s right to award illegal Aliens the same rights as American citizens when they have already broken the law, by stealing American’s identities and doing jobs that LEGAL Americans would do.

Do you think it’s right for illegal Aliens not to learn the English language, or not to assimilate, English is the language of America. English is the language of business, English is the common language that unites us all as a people.

Bi-lingualism or multi-linguilism is causing the destruction of the Amer

The problem is not immigration. The problem has always been taxes being unpaid by illegal immigrants. This makes immigration as a whole seem like a bad thing when, if dealt with correctly, can be advantageous for the economy.
