What the President must say in his speech tomorrow

Here's what the President should say tomorrow in his speech:
  • This country loves legal immigrants...we could live without them, but we are all the better for them. Legal immigrants are and will always be welcomed to this nation.

    Potential legal immigrants to this country are one of the groups of individuals most adversely affected by illegal immigration. I will do everything in my power to restore the integrity of our immigration laws and make this country a place legal immigrants can be proud to come to.

    If you're a citizen of another country and you want to come to the United States to contribute to making this nation greater, I ask that you respect my nation's law and do so through proper and legal means. If you do so, I promise you a fair opportunity. I can't guarantee that everyone will be welcomed, but if you don't respect the laws of my country you are definitely not welcomed.

  • I will not sign a bill into law that rewards illegal immigrants that circumvent our laws. In particular, I will not sign a bill into law that seeks to reward law breakers that have been in our country illegally 5 years or more with a path to citizenship and treat them any differently from an individual that just entered our nation this morning illegally.

    If you disrespect the laws of our nation and have come here illegally, you must go back to your country of origin and apply for permission to return. There will be no guarantee that you will be extended an invitation to return. This applies whether your from the Dublin or Dorado.

    One thing I can assure you of is that applications for entry from your fellow countrymen that have been applying to enter this nation legally will be considered before that of individuals that disregarded the laws of this nation.

  • We will enforce the laws that are currently on the books. If you're an employer that employs illegal immigrants, you will be prosecuted; period. My administration will work actively to remove all incentives that support illegal immigration.

  • We will enforce our borders and not apologize to anyone for doing so. My country has a right to defend its territorial integrity and saying who is welcomed to come into our nation is a fundamental component of that territorial integrity.
