This article smacks of truth. "The new illegals would be cheaper than the guest workers." "Serial amnesties." "Unable to enforce..."

I just thought of the perfect name for this amnesty - No Illegal Alien Left Behind.

Per other articles recently, many foreigners are amassing toward the US border in anticipation of the new legislation.

Unless and until 'enforcement' becomes the primary concern, any new laws will only add to the problem. Until Congress and a President gets serious about the issue, it will never have a solution. And the flood will continue.

The down side is that it threatens our national sovereignty. It is an invasion. And currently, we are losing.

The amnesty and illegals issue parallels something I heard about 10 years ago.

I was listening to a news broadcast. Some black Congressman (I don't remember his name) was interviewed and said 'it would cost too much to clean up the corruption with Social Security and Medicare.' At the time, that system was estimated to have something like $400 million in corruption.

It seems, for our government, there comes a point at which a problem becomes too big to solve. The solution, per their theory, costs more than allowing the corruption to continue. Thus, crime does pay --- and pays in the $millions.

My granting amnesty, Congress not only gives consent to lawbreakers, but actually moves them to the front of the line for citizenship. Those coming in 'legally' get pushed out of the way.

And yet, 90% or more of those Congresscritters who re-run for election will win their seats back.

The law-enforcement authorities and immigration officials said IRCA was designed to address a population of fewer than 3 million illegal aliens. "The illegals kept flooding in ... and now we have another fine mess, this time with marching in the streets,"

mmigrants rising! A chronology and account of events and people so far...

By Clare - Heads up collective/catalyst project

Here is a snapshot of the past month’s immigrant justice movement building. Over 60 events (around 3 million people) here barely begin to represent the power of what’s going on, although you can almost see it when looking at the past couple days of thousands of highschool students walking out in protest repeatedly!

It’s unbelievable how little coverage there is (it took me hours to compile this). The fully grassroots nature of most of these actions (many fueled/organized by radio, tv, myspace and cellphones) is promising…

For all of us who had the chance to be part of this past week’s explosive demonstrations, and for us non-immigrants who have the gift of being part of this incredible movement, this is the time. Allies need to step it up! More to follow….
