.@pyconnor: FYI, @kausmickey has consistently refused to help with smart plans that'd stop amnesty. His strongest plans are akin to begging.

.@pyconnor: I suspect you're going to respond to that illogically. Prove me wrong. Weigh the evidence, what Kaus could do but refuses to do.

@Glaivester What are your thoughts on providing in-state tuition to public colleges/universities to undocumented students or DACA students?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM And no, illegal aliens should not get subsidized tuition, especially when American citizens are denied it.

@Glaivester we've been pushing to make DACA students eligible for in-state tuition rates in Virginia.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester DACA students have been considered by the DHS to be lawfully present and can lawfully work in the US

.@MontanoJM You've been fighting to discriminate against out-of-state American citizens in favor of illegal aliens. @pyconnor @24aheaddotcom

.@MontanoJM @pyconnor @24aheaddotcom #DACA students have no legal status; "legal presence" = Obama & DHS won't enforce law.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @pyconnor @24AheadDotCom given that they're lawfully present in the US, why are you classifying them as "illegal". It puzzles me
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @pyconnor @24AheadDotCom Because Obama does not have the authority to grant them lawful presence.

From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @pyconnor @24AheadDotCom I do not accept that they are lawfully present in the U.S. Obama & DHS exceeded their authority.

From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @pyconnor @24AheadDotCom ahh I see. Whether you accept it or not is irrelevant. They've been deemed to be lawfully present
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @pyconnor @24AheadDotCom Only by DHS and Obama - courts have not yet ruled that legitimate. Final determination not yet done.

.@MontanoJM @pyconnor @24AheadDotCom Given that final word on #DACA legitimacy not out yet, your acceptance of DHS declaration puzzles me.

.@MontanoJM @pyconnor @24AheadDotCom Judge has said #DACA is "probably illegal:" https://t.co/uuqPKPh2hG "Lawful presence" is in dispute.

@Glaivester @pyconnor @24AheadDotCom this seems to be a point on which we'll fundamentally disagree.

From @pyconnor
@Glaivester @MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Federal law states that if you give in-state tuition to foreigners, you must give it to Americans.

From @pyconnor
@Glaivester @MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Since they did not enter the country lawfully, they are here illegally regardless of Obama's fiat

.@MontanoJM: I heard McDonald's is a strong supporter of immigration reform. Do you know about that? What's their angle?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@24AheadDotCom Don't know the specifics about McD's but there's overwhelming support from the business community for CIR as a whole. Cont.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@24AheadDotCom There's no "angle". It simply makes economic sense. Great report on small business support of CIR: http://t.co/Ef6l6PH9EO
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom The angle is low wages: http://t.co/7PmDsBxuY3

Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom seems like we need to address the issue of raising the minimum wage.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom especially since "[McDonald's] cannot even provide their workers with adequate wages to support their families."
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Maybe we do. But raising wages works better with a restricted labor supply.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Increasing labor supply then increasing minimum wages is like printing money then imposing price controls.

.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Note @BeckyTallent's comments on #immigration: http://t.co/Pt407ETMPJ #Poultry plant conditions are so bad (1/2)
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom I know I'm digressing but personally, I think that states should determine their labor supply needs.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom why is the fed. Govt. responsible for capping work visas without knowing a state's labor needs?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @beckytallent ...prisoners won't work there. So import those who will rather than demand better conditions (2/2).
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom The same reason it is responsible for determining what a low-skill worker's time is worth?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom determining the number of migrant workers a state needs is different than determining a national min. wage.

From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom So you think that Arizona's SB1070 should have been upheld in its entirety?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Can a state determine that it does not need or want immigrant labor and keep the immigrants out?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom not sure where you got that from my comments. And no, it should have been deemed unconstitutional.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom especially the part that was upheld. The "reasonable suspicion" detention portion. It invites racial profiling

@MontanoJM @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom States absolutely have the right to model laws on federal law and enforce.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@pyconnor @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom and SCOTUS has the right to deem those laws unconst. Esp. if they're given to rampant discrimination

@pyconnor @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom case in point, DOMA decision

From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @pyconnor My point: you claim to think that states should determine how much immigration they need, not feds.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @pyconnor However, you change your mind when the states determine they want LESS immigration than feds.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom What about a state deciding not to honor federal green cards? Is that okay too?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Under your system, if a state thinks it has too many workers, can it prohibit hiring non-citizens?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Or can it prohibit hiring particular classes of non-citizens (e.g. guestworkers, non-permanent residents)?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom I don't think you understand the difference between work visas and green cards.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Why can it force them to permit foreign workers without knowing its employment needs?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom You're right, I meant work visas.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom interesting concept. I would say that state-based visas should be issued in addition to the fed. Gov visas issued
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom You mean states should only be given the ability to determine labor needs when they say they need MORE.
