R.I.P. United States of America (1789-2007)

by @ 14:49. Filed under Immigration, Politics - National.

Now that Jorge Bush (the last President of the USA) got a party in Congress that he can really deal with, he’s reached a bipartisan deal to surrender the United States of America to the DhimmiRATs and Mexicans by granting citizenship to every illegal alien within 13 years. Brush up on your Spanish, folks; it will be one of the two official languages of Caliphate Mexicano Del Norte, along with Arabic.

Mexicans to drain Social Security dry

by @ 9:54. Filed under Immigration, Politics - National.

The Washington Times reports on a secret protocol Jefes Bush and Fox negotiated in 2004 to allow Mexicans who worked in the US illegally and get amnesty to collect Social Security for the time they worked here illegally. Though the totalization agreement that this is part of hasn’t been submitted to Congress, once it is, Congress has to reject it within 60 days or it becomes law.

So, what’s wrong with this? Actually, it’s two things. First, the illegals were not working here legally, and in most cases, it cannot be proven how much they earned. Why in the hell do they deserve Social Security benefits when there isn’t going to be enough to pay those under 35 the way it is?

Second, this sure sounds like a treaty to me. Last time I checked, treaties needed a 2/3rds concurrance of the Senate.

I guess we now know without a doubt which party Jefe Bush was rooting for this past November.

Still don’t want to build a fence?

Cybercast News Service is running with a story about Texas border-county sheriffs finding evidence of Arabs and Iranians swimming the Rio Grande, often with the help of drug cartels and the Mexican Army.

Guess it’s time to renew my call to militarize the border, with shoot-to-kill orders given to the troops. If the Mexicans have a problem with that, roll south and remind them exactly what happened 160 or so years ago.

Senate passes “Amnesty first, border enforcement never”

by @ 9:03. Filed under Immigration, Politics - National.

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that the Senate passed their version of the immigration “reform” bill 62-36. One of the public parts of the bill, which (thankfully) still has to go through a conference committee with Jim Sensenbrenner, would authorize construction of 370 miles of fencing and 500 miles of vehicle barriers.

However, Michelle Malkin has the details on how that means nothing. It seems that Arlen Specter (tell me again why the RNC and President Bush supported him in the 2004 primary) snuck in a provision that Mexico be consulted before any new barriers are built.

As for the rest of the trash that the Senate passed, let’s see:

  • Guest-worker program – 200,000 per year with an initial 3-year visa. That visa can be renewed once, and once that “guest” is here for 4 years, they leap to the head of the citizenship line.
  • Amnesty for the invaders already here –
    • Those here 5 or more years as well as those working on farms for at least 863 hours in 2004-2005 (or willing and able to lie) leap to the head of the citizenship line without going back to where they came from and become citizens in 6 years after paying a modest fine
    • Those here between 2 and 5 years (or those not willing and able to lie enough to qualify for the 5-year rule) get citizenship 13 or so years after sneaking out across the border and coming back through a port of entry.
    • Those here less than 2 years, not working on a farm, and too stupid/lazy to lie allegedly get deported.
  • Penalties for being caught here illegally – misdemeanor, and any deportation ordered can be appealed ad nauseum
  • Other conditions of deportation – a felony non-immigration or 3 misdemeanor non-immigration convictions, which applies to both illegal and legal aliens.
  • Employers’ actions – they will eventually have to screen new hires’ Social Security numbers, with $20,000 fines per illegal they’re caught with.
  • All in all, if anything resembling this makes it out of conference committee, it’s over.

    Amnesty – the election question

    by @ 10:49. Filed under Immigration.

    I’ve heard the arguments from conservatives in favor of giving amnesty and citizenship to illegal aliens that if we throw the 12 million illegal aliens out of our country (namely, the 7 million Mexican invaders), that Mexico will go Communist like Venezuela. If that’s true, what makes them think that if we give them amnesty and citizenship like El Presidente Vicente Bush and the ‘Rats on both sides of the Senate aisle want, they won’t do the same here?

    Jessica whacks amnesty like a rotted pinata

    by @ 10:43. Filed under Immigration.

    First, she serves up the item that the INS will not go after one J. Carmen Navarette (the brother of the illegal alien who did a couple “jobs” Americans wouldn’t by robbing a bank and shooting it out with Waukesha police), despite the fact he admitted to the press he’s here illegally, sought to acquire his brother’s liquor license, and is in the phone book because they “can’t” identify him, he didn’t appear to break further laws, and he “might” have moved on. What makes me think the INS won’t start enforcing deportation laws against illegal aliens when the number temporarily drops to nearly zero after we give most of the 12 million amnesty-“lite”?

    Next, she exploded the “didn’t appear to break further laws”, finding out that J. Carmen Navarette appeared to break state of Wisconsin tax laws. Why am I not surprised, and why won’t I be surprised when the INS continues to refuse to try to deport Navarette?

    Finally, she questions whether those pushing for amnesty-“lite” will start pushing for deportations when the predictable happens, and many of those 12 million they want to give amnesty to refuse to follow those rules, with some claiming poverty and others simply staying underground. My prediction – this becomes amnesty-“heavy”, with all the hoops removed.

    If 12 million illegal aliens are too many to deport,…

    by @ 17:22. Filed under Immigration.

    …then what should we have done when 9 million Southerners out of 31 million Americans (both numbers including slaves) revolted over the election of Abraham Lincoln, and they mustered up over 1 million under arms (compared to 2.2 million Union soldiers)? Surely the US couldn’t muster up the spine, much less the ability, to defeat the separatists, could they?

    Of course, Abraham Lincoln didn’t listen to the nay-sayers, and despite a very heavy toll, the Union prevailed in the Civil War.

    The middle of the road isn’t safe

    by @ 7:37. Filed under Immigration.

    And that’s exactly the path that President Bush’s prime-time speech on illegal aliens took. Liberals are whacking at the plan to tighten the border, especially the part about using the Guard temporarily; while conservatives hate just about everything else. Let’s review the “high” points:

    • Moderately-increased enforcement of the border – It truly is only moderate, even though we’ll start out with a temporary non-combat/border enforcement deployment of National Guard troops. We’ll have more than double the number of Border Patrol agents we had at the start of 2001, but 18,000 agents for 2,000 miles of border isn’t enough. As for not “militarizing” the border, when the Mexican Army is taking potshots at both civilians and Border Patrol agents, maybe it’s time to “militarize”, complete with shoot-to-kill orders.
    • Increased enforcement against companies who hire illegal workers, along with “tamper-proof” ID cards for legal aliens – Good idea, even though most of those employers still won’t be able to tell the difference between a legitimate card and a forged one. Something’s missing; requiring state and local governments to sift through those they come in contact with to determine who is and isn’t here legally.
    • A “guest-worker” program – Well, we’ve seen just how successful that’s been in France. Sure, they might be “required” to go home after their two years, but between a continued “anchor baby” policy and a complete lack of enforcement of current laws, something tells me they won’t go home after their two years.

      Added to that, the economics just don’t support this. The whole reason why some employers are willing to hire illegal aliens at “sub-standard” wages (whether those wages are below minimum wage or not), and why illegal aliens are willing to work for those “sub-standard” wages is because they don’t have to pay taxes on those wages. If we make every worker “legal”, those taxes will be there on both sides, eliminating the competitive advantage illegal aliens have. Further, paying those taxes would necessarily reduce the main legitimate reason why aliens come here; to earn enough to send back home to the family.

    • Semi-amnesty for the 12 million illegal aliens already here – Don’t mistake my use of the accurate term for complete opposition to this, but not sending them back to their countries of origin to begin their legal immigration is a form of amnesty. President Bush would, however, not make citizenship automatic, would first make them pay some sort of penalty taxes, and would send them to the back of the line of the path to citizenship. That is far preferable to what the Senate wants to do, a full, blanket and, for many, immediate amnesty for almost all the aliens.
