Solution: Support and pass mandatory E-Verify; Deport all illegal immigrants.

I do share the strong belief that illegal immigration needs to be stopped at all costs, as it is a severe detriment to our state & country's national, financial, and economic security as well as our national sovereignty. To this point, the cause of the problem needs to be addressed, not the resulting symptoms. Illegal immigrants that have children when they come to this country are here because of an illegal act. Just because the children of the illegal immigrants were born here, doesn't dismiss the original illegal act committed by their parents in the first place. Real immigration reform needs to be actually implemented and enforced by the Federal Government in concert, and with teamwork with the states, if we are to rescue ourselves from the brink of financial insolvency as a country.

The best analogy I can come up with in regards to immigration reform is that if someone breaks into your house, regardless of their intent, via a window or door they were able to shimmy open or break, which is a criminal act in itself of break-in and entering, you don't adopt that person into your family, and allow them to take advantage of the privileges reserved for members of your family. The answer, in this case, is to remove them from your house, thereby allowing you to make the choice as to whether you want to allow them into your house in the future, via them knocking on your front door, and you choosing whether you want to allow them in.

In this case, the Federal Government has left the doors and windows wide open (with a welcome mat), and hasn't bothered to repair the broken windows or doors. This is negligence on the part of the Federal Government. No state should not have to pay for the mistakes of the Federal Government financially, especially when there are states, like Arizona, that are willing and able to repair and reinforce those same broken windows and doors. Unfortunately, Arizona recently got their hands slapped then bound, when they pointed out that the Federal Government wasn't doing their job.
