On Jan. 27, the Copley News Service reported that shortly after President Bush announced his plans to amnesty millions of illegal aliens in the U.S., more than half of the Mexicans trying to sneak into the U.S. through San Ysidro (search) told authorities they were doing so to position themselves for the amnesty.

"In the last several weeks, a staggering 90 percent of all illegal aliens intercepted in one sector in southern Texas claim they’ve come for the amnesty"

Why?...why would the President who is waging a war on terror ...leave the back door open to these same terrorists to infiltrate....?

At the same time allow millions of criminals access to Americas heartland....

They are not just poor folks looking for work...these are also hard core criminals coming over as well...Methamphetamine courriers and dealers...Mexican Mafia...Central American drug cartel mules..

We got American haters from every nation on earth crossing our wide open borders....
They are even picking up Chinese crossing over from Mexico

Abre los ojos...El Presidente Jorge Arbusto.....por favor...

You forgot this blurb about the author of this article.

Matt Hayes began practicing immigration law shortly after graduating from Pace University School of Law in 1994, representing new immigrants in civil and criminal matters. He is the author of The New Immigration Law and Practice, to be published in October.

Semma that Mr. Hayes is getting his order from the Kerry/Moby group.

Misleading headline because no numbers are cited. It has the look of a liberal hit piece.

How could a "PROPOSED" new immigration law be ENFORCED or NOT, when it is NOT been even debated much less ENACTED? This article is BS IMHO.

Take a look at reply #9.

VU intentionally left out the little blurb about the author at the end of the article.

Hi KB. An ironic quote from someone, IMO, who speakes out of his posterior oriface about anything in regards to Bush.

BTW, see reply #9 and the information that was intentionally left out.

A liberal hit piece? IF CLINTON DID ANYTHING even close to this plan and this article came out you all would be up in arms.

No I wouldn't. Reagan granted an actual amnesty. Even Tancredo's plan offers guest-worker status like Bush's.

Every year around this time the attempted crossings into our country begins to rise. The end of Feb and beginning of March alway show a spike in attempts. Common sense points to the Spring Season. Lots of farmers will be hiring cheap laborors around this time. Yes, they may say it is for the amnesty, but I believe amnesty or no amnesty, they would have still attempted to cross the border. Even without amnesty the illegals were being taken care of by our tax dollars.

You don't have to be in a border state to see the major influx of Latino's. Here in SE Tennessee and neighboring North Georgia it is very apparent.

Exactly. As if the doors weren't open before Dubya said anything. Let's go back to thinking that doing nothing will help. Let's also look at how Massachusetts has handled the immigration issue...ever been to Lawrence? No Democrat or Republican is going to use SWAT teams to round up illegals. Sorry, ain't gonna happen. Let's not lose the war because we don't like a particular stategery on the battlefied. Let's not be "principled" Republican and help elect Kerry who will truly open the doors.
