The below is from the Martha Zoller opening monologue to start the week on Monday, Nov. 13, 2023. I say again: I get the impression she pushes amnesty and inaccurate related “facts” to her listeners pretty much every day. We’ll get to this when time allows, but part of the recurring theme seems to be if an illegal alien obtains an ITIN he should be rewarded with amnesty. SMH

Good news! Martha didn’t push her mindless defense of Gov. Brian Kemp today that goes like this: “He had to change his tactics” and refuse to honor his 2018 pledge to enforce anti-sanctuary city laws in Georgia, to create a public database of what he referred to as criminal illegals” and to send legislation to the general assembly that he labeled “the Kemp Track and Deport Plan.” So, that’s something, eh?

Amnesty supporter Martha Zoller:
… now. So, as I’ve said before, you know, I get criticized for it ’cause there’s some hardliners out there, but as I’ve said before, there is a complica- it is a complicated issue, but it’s not that complicated to solve. The first thing you gotta do now on the northern and the southern border, because there’s a big problem on the northern border now, a 500% increase in people crossing on the northern border. There’s bigger challenges because when you cross in cold weather, and there’s a lot of people that somehow have gotten to Canada that are not Canadians that are coming across this border. So you’ve got to secure the border, you’ve got to use troops if you have to. You’ve gotta build a wall where it makes sense to build a wall. But the whole concept of building a wall was never gonna be, you built a 2,000-mile wall on both on the north and south of the border.
It always depended upon terrain, and geography, and where it could be built, okay. So, you know, what’s co- the goal is to drive people to the legal points of entry so that they have to do the things that people do to come in legally or be turned away. So that’s gotta be done first. Then you’ve got the people on… there’s an app for that, you know, that have signed up that we pretty much know where they are. Need to round those folks up and get them outta here because they’re not all asylum seekers, seekers. We’ve probably already let terrorists in. We probably have, I hate to be so negative about that. I got an email saying, “Martha, don’t say that because it’ll scare people.” Well, I’m scared, okay. I’m not changing the way I live my life, but I am aware that there’s probably cells of, of Hamas or Hezbollah in the United States right now, um, think that’s true.
Then I hope people would look at the RAISE Act, uh, which deals with the legal immigration issue, uh, because there are H-1B, H-1A (Note from D.A.: the H-1A nurse program, enacted by the Nursing Relief Act of 1989, expired on September 1, 1995. The last H-1A visas were issued in Fiscal Year 2000. – here.) visa holders that are waiting for green cards, they’re waiting longer than what they would normally have to wait. And, uh, because of that, uh, they have lots of limitations on them. Their spouses can’t work. There’s other things, but these are people that wanna stay in the United States. They filed the paperwork, they’ve done the process, they’ve done their time. The big challenge is w- if they… As they wait for the green card, is it’s their employer that’s implied for the green card. So their employer, they kind of are indentured servants. They can’t change jobs. So that’s a big problem that could be fixed through the RAISE Act that was introduced by Senator Perdue.
Then we’ve got to have more pressure on employers so that they don’t have incentives to hire illegal immigrants. There ought to be E-Verify everywhere. There’s supposed to be E-Verify everywhere, but there are some places where they’re not. We need to make sure that employers have more penalties for hiring illegal immigrants, that will stem the tide if there’s not work. Um, but then ultimately, what we’re gonna have to do is there’s a whole group of people that have been here a long time that have different levels of, of situation. And again, you know, I don’t know if it’s 20 years Newt Gingrich talked about 25 years, 20 years, 10 years, 15 years. I don’t know what it is. That’s for other people to decide, that if you have lived here X period of time, you have not interacted with law in other ways, and you have followed certain… It ought to be taken on a family by family basis and looked at.
There’s also a group of people. I mean, I know this is complicated. I’m making y’all… I’m, I’m sure you’re head splitting around like Linda Blair, but you’ve got also a group of people that have gone and gotten tax ID numbers and they’re filing taxes every year. Those folks… I mean, I think they ought to be put at the front of the line because they’re, they’re paying taxes even though they could get away with not paying taxes, that shows they wanna be a part of the country. So I don’t think there’s one answer to this. I do think it’s complicated, and I am a Conservative, I am a no illegal immigration person, but you also have to know, you know, you’re dealing with people here that are in different situations.
Let’s just… For example, a person that I helped at one point in time, because I didn’t know she was an illegal immigrant, but she finally confessed to me that she was, and she had come in on a false document, but since she had come into the United States, she had married, been married for 13 years to an American, and she had two children. She had, uh, documentation that when she paid for it… she was a Venezuelan at that time, this is 25 years ago, she paid $3,500 for this document. So she thought it was a legal document. In her mind, I’m paying money, I’m getting this document back, it must be legal.
She noticed that the name was spelled wrong, and when she asked about it, they said, “Oh, don’t worry. It’s fine. It’s fine.” So she came in on a false document, and she’s been working, she’s been doing things. Um, and you know, I told her, “I cannot help you except for to say I know you to be a good worker because you’re here illegally, and I don’t want you to be taken away from your children.” But there’s a, there’s a situation here. So finally, you know, an immigration lawyer was able to help her and she was able to stay with her family. And I think that that was a good end to that situation.
But I think that right now that’s what we’re having all around the country is there are people that are intentionally breaking our laws in coming in. There are people that are being taken advantage of by the cartels, and there are people that are in 21st century slavery because they owe money to the cartels, and they can’t pay it back. And so because of that, they’re in a big situation where they’re just being trafficked, either labor trafficking or sex trafficking, and we need to stand up against all of that and we’re gonna need a president that understands how to put this process back together.
And you know what, there’s a couple of people on the Republican side that have done it. I think Nikki Haley could do it. I think Donald Trump could do it. I think Donald Trump did do it. So I think it’ll be a big issue in this next election. We’ll be back on the Martha Zoller Show.
