BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -
It's an issue that gets people
on both sides fired up. On Tuesday, the fight over
immigration reform was red hot in Washington and right here in the Tri-State after President Obama's announcement, saying "now is the time" to fix broken immigration laws.
Under his plan, immigrants living
in the United States illegally would be able to move towards citizenship once
they have passed national security and criminal background checks, as well as
have current taxes and are able to speak English.
Supporters argue that passing the immigration reform
would financially account for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the United
On the flip side, the burden
falls on the government to support millions of individuals, and introduces them
to programs like welfare and social security.
Butler County Sheriff Richard
Jones will head to Washington D.C. this week to meet with the National
Sheriff's Immigration Committee. He's been an active member for
many years and feels this immigration reform is more about both parties
pleasing voters, and not solving the bigger issue.
"This is Ohio," said Sheriff
Jones. "We're a little ways from Mexico. We're a little ways from China. We're
a little ways from all these countries, but the drugs still come in, the
criminals still come in, and the violence and the gangs."
Sheriff Jones said the
immigration reform currently on the table needs to include more things, but
most importantly anything implemented needs to be enforced.
"I'm afraid that what our
government is introducing is going to kill the welfare system, social
security," explained Jones. "It's just going to be more of a burden on these
people, people who have jobs here, Americans, U.S. citizens."
"Eleven million people are
not just going to be given a blanket waiver," explained George Fee, board
member for the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati and an immigration attorney. "There
are going to be lots of hoops that they need to jump through."
George Fee is a board member for
the Hispanic Chamber and also an immigration attorney. He feels it will be good for the
economy to document and employ immigrant workers.
"The business community will
be coming online," Fee added. "Lots and lots of businesses, maybe the more
cyclical ones, really depend on the immigrant labor."
Fee said the discussion on
immigration reform is still in its early phases and will likely continue well
into the summer months, but a resolution could be a win-win for everyone.
