Congress Bears the Constitutional Responsibility for Regulating and Controlling Immigration

The purpose of this Immigration Blog is to help keep freedom-minded citizens up-to-date on federal and state legislation regarding immigration. We favor stopping illegal immigration and oppose amnesty in any form. We also oppose temporary worker programs because, given the almost complete lack of federal enforcement of our current immigration laws, these programs would only serve to dramatically increase the number of temporarily legal immigrants with little prospect that these immigrants would honor the terms of their temporary worker permits, thus circumventing existing congressionally-authorized limits for legal immigration. We also advocate congressional action to end automatic birthright citizenship for children born to illegal immigrants in the U.S.

If you consider the extensive evidence that the Bush administration is working toward merging Mexico, Canada, and the United States into a North American Union (NAU) by building on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and through its creation of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America in 2005, then the almost total lack of federal enforcement of our existing immigration laws begins to make sense. That is, if our government is working toward a North American Union with open borders between the present-day nations of Mexico, Canada, and the U.S., then there is little motivation on the part of the government to enforce immigration laws that would be scrapped anyway in a few years. Moreover, non-governmental organizations, such as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), that are involved in the NAU merger process openly call for full mobility of labor throughout North America.

While we strongly advocate stopping illegal immigration, we also strongly caution against police-state type solutions, such as building fences and establishing national ID cards. Rather, we encourage reducing illegal immigration through minimizing the economic incentives for illegal immigration and better enforcement of our current immigration laws.

We invite readers of this blog to help keep us up-to-date on federal and state immigration news and legislation by posting comments with links.
