  • THE TRUTH IS THE MORE IMMIGRANTS ARE ALLOWED INTO THE COUNTRY--THE LONGER THE WAITING LINE

    04/23/2013 9:54:33 AM PDT · by cradle of freedom · 13 replies
    We are always hearing from the immigration pushers that we need more, more, more immigration. Why? Because there are many immigrants who are waiting decades to get into this country. But how many people would actually like to come into our country? Millions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions or billions of people? There are 7 billion people on earth, billions of them would like to come to the United States? What would it take to grant each of them their wish of immigrating to this country? Would it be possible to bring in everybody who wanted to come here?...
  • Rep. Phil Gingrey Offers Bill to End Chain Migration

    NumbersUSA ^ | February 15, 2011
    Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) has introduced H.R. 692 that would would eliminate the extended family visa categories (e.g., married sons and daughters of citizens, etc.), thus ending “chain migration” as recommended by the bi-partisan Barbara Jordan Commission in 1997. Current immigration law allows U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor non-nuclear, adult family members, creating an endless chain of mass legal immigration. Rep. Gingrey's bill would end this practice by disallowing all adult family members from receiving legal permanent residency. H.R. 692, which is one of NumbersUSA's top legislative priorities, would reduce the number of annual issuance of family-sponsored...

    Outgoing Republican Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado said today that he has contacted GOP members of California's congressional delegation and urged them to vote for a bill that would offer a path to legal status for undocumented youth. "Don't make this a political football. Get it done. California needs it," Maldonado, one of California's few high profile Republican Latinos said he told members. Maldonado, who is Mexican American and owns a farm, was appointed lieutenant governor this year but lost his bid for election in November. . . .

    Crackdown on 80,000 immigrant wives with free pass to Britain By SIMON WALTERS, POLITICAL EDITOR 01st August 2009 A highly controversial crackdown on immigrants accused of abusing welfare handouts is to be unveiled by Home Secretary Alan Johnson this week. He plans to ban wives brought here, mainly from India and Pakistan, from receiving child benefit and a wide range of other state aid unless they learn English, support British values and do voluntary work in the community. The move could affect up to 80,000 immigrants who are allowed to settle permanently in Britain each year after marrying a UK...

    Senate Democrats re-laid the ground work for so-called comprehensive immigration reform. The plan would include amnesty for 12 to 20 million illegal aliens. President Obama has made this issue a priority - despite the struggling economy and millions of Americans out of work. Once amnestied, by the process of never-ending chain migration, those former illegal aliens and their newly arrived relatives would bring untold millions more into America. Lisa Sylvester reports...

    In cities across the country, U.S. Representative Luis Gutierrez, a member of the Hispanic Caucus in the House of Representatives, is pimping for yet another full-blown amnesty for illegal aliens. ‘Family re-unification’ is the latest public relations ploy being used in an attempt to convince citizens and government officials that the plight of illegal aliens is somehow the responsibility of the United States.

    A fact sheet released this week from the U.S. State Department reported widespread fraud in the refugee program that has brought tens of thousands of people from Somalia and other African nations to the United States. The reported fraud spurred the State Department to suspend a humanitarian program in August which was supposed to reunite African "anchor" refugees already in the states with their family members who are still overseas. DNA testing conducted earlier this year by the government to verify blood ties between anchor refugees and their supposed family members revealed that fewer than 20 percent of those checked...

    Barack Obama would use his presidential power to discourage enforcement of federal immigration laws and offer blanket amnesty to 12 million illegal immigrants as part of his quiet plan to dismantle U.S. immigration policies. In numerous speeches and interviews, Obama has repeated his pro-illegal immigrant stance, aimed squarely at filling voter rolls with hordes of newly minted Democratic voters. But giving amnesty — and eventually, citizenship — to 12 million illegal immigrants would not only overwhelm social service programs but also forever alter the nation’s political profile, especially in the South and the West, experts warn. Despite such dire predictions,...

    Editor’s Note: By participating in the historic Spanish-language debate on Univision, Republican candidates finally realized that they need Latino votes. But is it “too little, too late?" NAM editor Elena Shore monitors Spanish language media. The first Spanish-language Republican presidential candidate debate couldn’t have come at a better time for the GOP. Latino support for the Republican Party has dropped substantially when the Latino vote is more important than ever. The candidates’ jostling over who is tougher on immigration has alienated Latinos even further. Seven of the eight Republican presidential candidates showed up at the University of Miami Sunday with...

    ABC News' Teddy Davis Reports: Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney backs an end to the policy known as chain migration but he has not yet reached a conclusion on the more controversial question of whether the United States should end birthright citizenship for children born in the United States to illegal immigrants. "On the birthright citizenship issue, we're still looking at it," Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom told ABC News. .. At present, all babies born in the United States -- except those born to enemy aliens in wartime or the children of foreign diplomats -- enjoy American citizenship under the...

    Update 9:00am Eastern 9/19: Former INS senior special agent Michael Cutler sounds the alarm on stealth amnesty and writes: “Democracy is not a spectator sport! Lead, follow or get out of the way!” The Washtimes editorial board reports: The Bush administration has not taken an official position, but Defense Department officials are quietly urging members to support the bill. Meanwhile, Homeland Security officials, alarmed by the prospect of massive fraud resulting from Mr. Durbin’s proposal, have been opposing it. This is a clear cut issue: The DREAM Act is a nightmare."

    As the Senate is mulling the details of a compromise immigration bill hammered together by the odd couple of Sens. Edward Kennedy and Jon Kyl, and as members of Congress hear from their constituents over the Memorial Day recess, it may be worthwhile to put the issue in historical context. For most of our history, the United States had no restrictions on immigration at all. I am told that my Canadian-born grandfather was a "nickel immigrant": He took the five-cent ferry from Windsor, Ontario, north to Detroit roundabout 1896. This situation resulted from America's strong demand for labor, coupled with...

    The debate in Washington over reforming America's immigration laws has produced not only heated rhetoric but a few fantastic claims. Few are wilder than a prediction from a well-known think-tank that the reform bill just passed by the Senate will result in 103 million legal immigrants to the United States during the next 20 years. In a "Web Memo" from the Heritage Foundation, author Robert Rector claims that the Hagel-Martinez immigration bill (S. 2611) would unleash a flood of chain migration that would overwhelm America's capacity to absorb so many people. He calculates that the bill would not only allow...

    No to Bush Amnesty by James R. Edwards, Jr. Posted Jan 9, 2004 Just in time for his trip to Mexico, President Bush has proposed another mass amnesty of millions of illegal aliens. The White House is willing to overlook Mexico's opposition to us on Iraq, in the United Nations, on communist Cuba, on returning Mexican fugitives to face justice in America, on policing the border against illegal immigration, on opening its socialist oil company to private investment and its aggressive lobbying in American domestic affairs. The Bush amnesty-guestworker proposal would do a lot more than connect "willing workers" with...
