It matters not a whit what you call it — it still amounts to amnesty for eleven million illegal aliens in America.
This “new” immigration reform from both the US Senate and the US President is utterly ridiculous. But in the end, it will be rammed down the throats of the American public simply because the US government has gone rogue and is no longer responsive — nor responsible — to the US citizenry. (And some people still wonder WHY Americans are arming themselves???)
The Heritage Foundation released the following statement on January 30th, 2013:
“America’s heritage of immigration has fueled our nation’s strength and diversity, yet our immigration system has become so politicized and dysfunctional that it causes untold personal tragedies, strains the fiscal capacity of public services in many states, and prevents many from pursuing the American Dream. Complex, comprehensive legislation based on back-room deals never works, and the Senate immigration proposal announced this week and echoed yesterday by President Obama—to the extent that it repeats the mistakes of the past—will further polarize Americans, fail to solve the real policy problems, and make matters worse.
Immigrants come to our country for freedom and economic opportunity. We are concerned that many aspects of the framework for comprehensive reform will undermine the very foundations that make for America’s exceptional success. Policymakers should refrain from committing to such broad statements before the actual legislative language is available for public review. A proposal that would grant individuals who are in this country illegally a pathway to citizenship violates the rule of law and is unfair to those who have obeyed our immigration laws.
The Heritage Foundation believes that America’s immigration system must be reformed through an open and public step-by-step, problem-solving approach that unites Americans and creates a system that welcomes immigrants, protects our sovereignty, encourages assimilation, and expands opportunities for everyone. Once such common-sense reforms are in place and working, lawmakers can determine how to respond in a fair, compassionate, and constitutional way to those who have come to our country illegally.”
Let’s just blow away some of the smoke and call it what it is: What we have here is a HUGE payoff by the Obama Administration to the Hispanic community for their vote in the November election. That’s one side. On the other side is the GOP trying like hell to convince the Hispanic vote to shift to their side by offering them citizenship in the country they broke into.
If you, like me, don’t like what the Senate and the President are proposing, well, stuff it! It doesn’t matter. The decision has been made — and a bill WILL be passed to offer illegals amnesty.
Look. The poor, hapless, dumb, republicans cannot, for whatever reason, understand that the GOP has lost (if they ever really had) the Hispanic vote. Heck, the Hispanic vote is a “natural” for the Democrat/socialists, anyway … always has been. The republicans cannot get it through their heads that agreeing to and passing this comprehensive immigration reform simply adds eleven million NEW VOTERS to the democratic side of the tally sheet. It is lose, lose, for the republicans. And it is lose, lose, for America as that will place the democrat/socialists in a position to rule America in perpetuity… forever!
