Illegal border crossings leap ahead of immigration bill
Washington TImes ^ | 4/10/13 | Stepen Dinan

Apprehensions of illegal immigrants are up 13 percent this year, the chief of the U.S. Border Patrol told Congress on Wednesday as lawmakers continued to bash the Obama administration for failing to come up with a way of measuring how secure the borders are.

The increase in apprehensions appears to contradict the administration’s assertion that the border is more secure than ever — a claim that is critical to advocates’ hopes of passing an immigration legalization bill this year.

“We have seen an increase in attempted entries,” Border Patrol Chief Michael J. Fisher told a Senate committee, adding that part of the reason for the increase was the lure of a potential deal that would legalize most illegal immigrants now in the country.

The concept of sovereignty

That’s one of the first things I learned in 1969 Poly Sci 101.

No need to rush. Long after amnesty is granted, the border will remain unprotected, and there will still be many opportunities for new border crossies to sign up for amnesty and healthcare paid by the US taxpayer.

Exactly right, Dude.

You can tell by the way the MSM and pro-Amnesty politicians CONSTANTLY emphasize the “11 million” number that the actual number will be many times higher.

In 1986, before the Reagan Amnesty, the claimed number of illegals was like 750,000.

As of today, the actual number is over 3 million.

And, 27 years AFTER that Amnesty, people are still allowed to sign up for it!

And, their parents, their brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and their in-laws are all allowed to immigrate once the original immigrant is legal.

Republicans like Marco Rubio are literally handing America to the Democrat Party.

Why, this is completely unexpected. Nobody could have seen that coming. Not in a million years.

ICE Union Pres: We’re Being Told Not To Enforce Immigration Laws

President of the Union representing ICE Agents detailed in an interview last night how administrative orders have prevented officers from enforcing immigration violations, creating a system in which even the 9/11 hijackers would not have been arrested.

Tyrant Kim Un Obama must be very pleased that his efforts have so easily “FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”

But hasn’t this administration repeatedly told us that the border is more secure now than ever?

Reward bad behavior, get more bad behavior. Hmmm, this phenomenon deserves a government study, maybe a ‘Stoopid Czar.’

The concept of sovereignty - - - is not compatible with the burgeoning reality of Meximerica.
