The Alabama immigration law has many people upset. I haven’t heard much about this bill until recently. So I just recently read the break down of the whole bill. There are somethings in the law I agree with, others I disagree with, and some things I just don’t understand. Blocking the use of federal funding is something I agree with and I disagree with keeping the children out of school. The bill mentions E-Verify, which I don’t know much about. So I looked it up and tried to find out how a immigrant uses the form.
I believe that if a immigrant signs up to pay taxes, that solves most of the problems. Whether the immigrant is going through the citizenship process or waiting to get into the program; by signing up to pay taxes they can get into the federal and state programs, and other benefits. In my opinion it seems like the state and federal want their money, and give people the chance for jobs. Welfare programs are lacking funding, the government is lacking funding, businesses are slow, and immigrants should be treated with respect. This way, when a immigrant signs up to pay taxes, the employees still get their workers, the immigrant gets paid legally and possibly into other programs, and the government gets their money. I know it probably sounds simpler than it actually is, but this is being done and it seems like it works for the most part. If people are not scared of deportation, then I think more people would sign up for the program. But like I mentioned previously, easier said than done.
