Starting the amnesty track immediately, while promising border security in the future, means that an irreversible benefit is conferred up front, while only time will tell whether the promise of border security will be kept — as it has not been thus far.

We are importing many foreigners who stay foreign, if not hostile. Blithely turning them into citizens by fiat, rather than because they have committed to the American way of life, is an irreversible decision that can easily turn out to be a dangerous gamble with the future of the whole society.

 

Conservative members of Congress, have expressed sharp criticism of the 844-page immigration bill filed on the Senate floor by the bipartisan “Gang of Eight.”

Critics lambasted the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security for its recent decision to purchase over $7 million of U.S. Border Patrol uniforms that are made in Mexico.

Why are there immigration laws in the first place? For the benefit of the American people — not for the benefit of people in other countries who want to come here.

Thousands of supporters of immigration reform gathered in Washington, D.C., on April 10, with the main event of the day being the Citizenship for 11 Million rally held on the West Lawn of the Capitol. The Washington Post reported that the rally was co-sponsored by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and CASA of Maryland, identified as an “immigrant advocacy group.”

The new amnesty and guest worker bills would help establish the North American Union.

U.S. senators have come to a “bipartisan agreement” to allow comprehensive immigration reform — amnesty. But the price of amnesty literally could mean the end of the country.

The traditionally Republican stronghold in Arizona may change to a Democrat-majority state due to the large number of immigrants.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said an agreement on an immigration reform plan has been reached by the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” senators.
