Have you ever wondered what Amnesty Advocates mean when they say we have a broken immigration system? Have you ever wondered why they will never respond when you ask "why don't you just enforce the immigration laws we have now?"
It's very simple. When they say our immigration system is broken they're really saying they want the laws changed to allow some 20 million illegal Mexicans to be rewarded with citizenship and a front row seat to America's generous social welfare programs.
I just took a look at a very objective analysis of the Gang of Eight's new Immigration Program. Oh sure, it's loaded with all kinds of language about enforcing our borders and cutting off illegal immigration in its tracks. How many of you remember that this same sort of enforcement language was used back in 1986 when we granted the first series of amnesties? And since the Obama administration has been picking and choosing who the deport, regardless of immigration law, why would you believe they would enforce it this time?
Let me give you two examples of why all this enforcement talk is just gibberish. Just the other day we learned that illegals, by filing tax form INIT, non resident tax filings, were able to claim $11 billion dollars in 2011 alone in Child Tax Credits! Illegal Mexicans have been scoring big with your taxes for years. Congress knows about it and has done nothing! Further, by Congressional law, illegals filing these INIT returns with IRS are safe because, again by Congressional law, the IRS is not allowed to provide the tax filing addresses to ICE!
Secondly, you know all those illegals crowding you out in hospital emergency rooms? They are legally entitled to do that because the courts mandated that hospitals must provide emergency care regardless of legal status. And do you know what the courts referred to in order to reach that decision? The very Congressional law that was passed that didn't preclude illegals from the law...and Congress has never saw fit to amend the law! So do you really believe any of this latest mumbo jumbo about strict enforcement? If you do I want to talk to you about Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy!
But getting back to the new law; did anyone notice that there is an 18-month window after the bill passes where our new 20 million green card holders are allowed to bring as many of their extended family now living in Mexico into the U.S. to live? That ought to add another 30 or 40 million to the ones already here!
And looking further into the bill one Wall Street Journal article took a good look at the bill's language on illegals filing and paying taxes for the years they were here illegally. Guess what? The business journalist surmised that it might cost us hundreds of billions of dollars if those folks started filing late returns. Why? Because they, already accustomed to gaming the system, need only to under report their income and make them eligible for huge sums of tax credits, to include hundreds of billions of dollars in child tax credits!
The same is true for the Social Security Program! The Congress is likely to vote them back credits for working in the U.S., even if they used fraudulent social security numbers; this crime would be amnestied under the new provisions! Thus, the Social Security Program, already being robbed to pay for deficits in the General Fund, would have to begin paying out Social Security SSI and Social Security Retirement for millions of illegal Mexicans.
And, in light of the criminal element we last granted amnesty, are we going to insure that we aren't taking in even more criminals? Well, apparently not because the new immigration bill clearly allows illegal Mexicans to have as many as three misdemeanors on the books and still qualify for citizenship! Are you kidding me? Does anyone remember when America demanded that immigrants be of high moral standing before being allowed in America?
Folks, read the bill carefully! It's available all over the Internet. Study it. What you'll find is that this bill is just more of the same lack of enforcement that the last amnesty bred. It is strictly political; you have Democrats salivating at the potential for 20 to 60 million more Democratic voters...and you've got Republicans in Name Only (RINO'S) falling all over themselves trying to suck up to Hispanics in order to keep their Congressional seats!
This bill does nothing for the American people except to further burden our social safety net and suppress wages of legal, hard-working Americans whose jobs are already under assault by jobs moving overseas and the sick Obama economy.
And the worst of it is that if this bill passes we will have at last surrendered the sanctity of our borders for all time and we may as just well learning Spanish, living with crime, drug smuggling, greater government corruption....and the okay for everyone to park three cars on their front lawn and play Mariachi music late into the night.
The Republicans are right to be wary of this bill.
