Immigration Reform Next Debacle on the Horizon

Amnesty for those illegal immigrants among us, called undocumented workers by our political elite even if they do not work and are collecting welfare and other government benefits, disguised under the name of “Path to Citizenship” will be at the heart of the immigration legislation to be considered by the Congress and backed by the President, the Democrats and most of the Progressive Republicans, also referred to as RINOs. Their claim, false as it may be, will be that these undocumented workers are simply honest people here seeking to find a better life for their families and deserve our sympathy for the plight they might face in their homelands and only number a mere eleven million unfortunate souls living in the shadows. If the politicians were to be honest they would be talking about the twenty million plus illegals of which a sizeable percentage are unemployed and collecting government handouts, whose children are in the school systems, use our hospital emergency rooms and often are paid in cash and do not pay any taxes to offset the expenses incurred through their unlawful presence within our borders. We will be fed the line that they are mostly law abiding despite the fact that their very presence is violating our immigrations laws every day and they came into the United States surreptitiously going around the immigration laws and are now to be rewarded with being placed anywhere in the line for citizenship instead of being deported and made to go through the legal process. There will be examples paraded before the public chosen to bring forth torrents of sympathetic tears as we are told of their plight, their fears of discovery, the hardships they endured and a million other superfluous reasons that we should reward their illegal actions. The biggest lie we will be told has little to do with the individual illegal immigrants but will be a repeat of the lie which was used to sell amnesty as part of immigration reform last time, that the laws will be fully and meticulously enforced and the borders sealed so that we never have this problem again in the future. The last amnesty named the Immigration Reform and Control Act passed in 1986 permitted approximately 2.8 million illegal aliens to be admitted as legal immigrants into the United States. This too was proposed as the final, one time, never to be repeated act of grace and amnesty after which the Congress and the President were to get serious about enforcing the border. Somewhere the ball got dropped somewhere between the President signing the bill and the ink drying on the paper.

 

Once again the American people are being told false promises by politicians who do not truly represent the majority of the American people or of their own constituencies and are instead answering to either moneyed interests who find employing illegals as a money saving way of doing business or to party bosses who see these illegal aliens as future voters who will beck their party for office in future elections. Every promise that the supporters of the new euphemism for amnesty will use to sell this legislation is a reworking of the plain truth or a bald faced lie to disguise their real intentions and make the legislation appear humanitarian and respectable worthy of support by any good hearted American. Never mind that the act of entering the country broke the laws of the federal government and thus the laws of the land where they now claim their special need expecting all else to be forgotten or at least forgiven. The politicians will tell us that there will be a penalty to be paid, a fine to allow these people of honest intent to prove their promise to be good citizens and obey the laws but then the bill will have clauses allowing for the same political system to forgive the fine allowing a path around making any act of contrition thus relieving them of any debt paid to erase the stain of their illegal entry. There will be clauses which we will be informed demand and will force the politicians to address and secure the border though another vote made late some Friday afternoon or evening will relieve them of this burdensome obligation. After the failures from the rollout of Obamacare and the news that Obama lied and millions of people’s health insurance died we should be more wary of politicians bearing promises of rosy futures. Yet there will be sympathetic articles in the news and speeches crafted to pull at the American people’s heartstrings, something the world over know are some of the most giving owners of heartstrings the world over, and the result will be another twenty million legalized illegal entrants and a border no better secured going forward than the last time these very same promises were paraded before the American people. Last time it was 2,800,000 instantly legalized immigrants who had illegally entered the country and this time it will be probably 28,000,000 instantly legalized immigrants who had illegally entered the country. That is ten times the number last time so can we expect in 2040 we will have yet another serious discussion over what to do with the illegal immigrants who simply came here for a better life for their families, after all there are only around 280,000,000 of these wonderful people needing our sympathy. My only question is where does it end? Will it require the United States of America to collapse and no longer be the nation of hope for all the downtrodden of the world before we are no longer asked to forgive and forget all past illegal acts and embrace the lawbreakers because we are such soft hearts? That would be a horrible price and should that ever become reality, my bet is Americans fleeing into other countries in order to find a better life for their families will not be met by even the smallest glimpse of sympathy. No sir, they will be arrested, thrown into prison, mistreated and thrown back across the border to where they came from. Don’t believe me then just research the laws in Mexico for those entering illegally and think again.
