"Look what happened last fall," Adams said.

"Gov. Romney was a great man and a sound businessman. But when his immigration policy involved 'self-deportation' -- what kind of idiotic comment was that? We have to embrace a way for people to register, pay their taxes and fines and work legally."

Any legislation that legalizes the status of those who broke our laws by entering our country illegally and allows them to stay is amnesty. We must not only prevent the Democrats and some moderate Republicans from hijacking the meaning of the word amnesty, but the public must be made aware about the true impact of an amnesty.

The Heritage Foundation concluded that the cost of amnesty alone would be $2.6 trillion, which would cover just entitlement program costs. And the number of additional LEGAL immigrants who would join those who were the recipients of amnesty through chain migration, i.e., family reunification, would approach 70 million over a 20-year period, assuming there are only 12 million illegal aliens.

We cannot assimilate such numbers. An amnesty would destroy the United States of America with the stroke of a pen.

If anyone has the ability I have a picture I could share but don’t know how to post it. I would need an email to send it to though. Quite funny...a young dredlock Austin guy said at the street corner after reading the banner: “Man, I wish I could get deported”
