Today, in Washington, before the Associated Builders and Contractors of America.
The Global War On Articles Continues
I think the best way to overcome economic difficulties that we’ve had in the past is to cut the taxes on everybody who pays taxes.
Send Your Money Now
It requires fundamental trust, for those of us in government, in your capacity to send your money better than the government can spend it.
We’re Just Only
Really, I’ve been around here long enough to know how it works in Washington, and that is, they’ll say, well, we’re going to raise your taxes; don’t worry, we’re just only going to tax the rich. Well, first of all, it doesn’t work that way. You can’t raise enough money on the so-called rich in order to wet the appetite of some of the spenders here.
Ah, I Finally Found Where He’s Been Hoarding All Those Articles
And if we continue to be wise about how we spend the money, and keep the economic vitality alive, we can balance the budget by 2012.
Heard The Word
I heard the word they’ve said about regulation and red tape.
As If No One Knows What The Word “Coyotes” Means
You’ve got a whole system of coyotes — those are smugglers — human smugglers taking advantage of a broken system.
People Wanting To Work And They Know They’ve Got To Have Some Papers
You’ve got document forgers — people wanting to work and they know they’ve got to have some papers, and there are people, a whole industry of people providing them with false documents.
Achieve Important Objectives
There’s a lot of people saying, well, there’s just no possible way that they can achieve important objectives — after all, they tried in ’86 and they failed.
What People Are Have Got
People are — have got a lot of emotions on this issue. You probably hear it in coffee shops, talking about the issue.
If You Hadn’t
A lot of people then say, well, if you hadn’t been in control, do you have the capacity to secure the border? You’ll hear a lot of people here say, well, since you didn’t do it in the past, you can’t do it in the future.
To A Border
I was in Artesia, New Mexico, to a border training center.
These People Not So Good
There used to be a problem with catch and release — Border Patrol agents would find somebody trying to sneak into our country illegally; they would say, we caught you, now report back to the local immigration court so you can have your hearing, because there was no place to hold these good people — or these people.
We’re modernizing the border. It hadn’t been that way. We’re making progress to modernize that border.
Most people want to comply with the law. I know you do. Yet, it’s awfully hard for you to be a document verifier.
Knows His Audience
This will make sure that you’re complying with the law, that you don’t have to guess, that you don’t hope you’re dealing with some forged document.
He Forgot The “Oh-One”
When the economy grows, people are looking for workers. That’s economics one.
You’re Probably Some
You’re probably some who are looking for workers.
The reality is, in America, that the construction industry and other sectors depend on foreign workers to fill jobs Americans are not doing.
Our Border Security And Work Site Enforcement Measure Is In Place
So once our border security and work site enforcement measure is in place, this bill will create a new temporary worker program.
It makes sense to me to say, instead of sneaking in, here’s a temporary worker card that’s tamper-proof, that you can go fill jobs that Americans aren’t doing. Therefore, you don’t sneak across.
We’re Not Worthy
At the end of eights years, if they want to apply for a green card — in other words, get in line for citizenship — after eight years — they’ll have to return to their home country so they can apply from there, pay an additional fine. In short, they will prove themselves worthy of a great land.
He Put The Ass in Assimilate
One of the great beauties of America has been people can come to this country with a dream and become Americans — that’s assimilate.
The Emergence Will Not Be Televised
Mel Martinez’s parents put him on an airplane from Cuba to Florida because a tyrant emerged on that island.
