PROPORTIONATE PUNISHMENT COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM. Pay a $5,000 fine, learn English, pay back taxes, undergo a background check and go to the back (end) of the line for citizenship. Is this an proportionate punishment for the offense? What in our constitution and immigration laws give those who think like this the right to make this is an proportionate punishment for the offense? Lets see. The offense is entering this country illegally, working illegally by using false or stolen documents. Comprehensive Immigration Reform will absolutely do nothing to stop or even control illegal immigration and secure our border. Unless it has an enforcement first clause and repeal the 14th Amendment giving automatic birthright citizenship to children of illegal aliens. If the formers of the constitution had foreseen mass illegal immigration we have today and the abuse and fraud they would have clarified the 14th Amendment.
