That's not even the most shocking line. Try this on for size: "Instead, those 2.7 million settled in America and, under the dominating "family reunification" policy, were able immediately to sponsor almost any number of relatives, some bringing in 80 or 90 persons." 80 to 90! Apparently, it really does take a village... to destroy America's cultural fabric.

Pete Nunez, the former U.S. attorney for San Diego and a lifelong fighter for immigration control, told me in a recent talk: "Why are those numbers today so high? Because of the amnesty of 1986! Those 2.7 million illegals amnestied were then able, in the decade of the '90s, to sponsor their family members. That decade turned out to have the highest number of legal immigrants practically in our history, because of the amnesty."

There is a major problem with his logic. Granted, the number of legal immigrants from Mexico has been greater in the last 15 years, than from all of Europe, however, the number of legal immigrants under the family reunification is strictly limited to 226,000 per year, and Mexico only receives a portion of those visas. To think each Mexican sponsored 80 or 90 family members who immigranted legally is simply not possible.
