U.S. Senate's plan for amnesty for illegal aliens would admit 103M over the next 20 years....
There should be no "guest worker" (a/k/a amnesty) program for people who have deliberately violated our laws---period. Unlike legal immigrants, illegal-aliens have had no screening for health, education, skills, command of English language, or knowledge and respect for U.S. laws---as is required of legal immigrants for U.S. entry, naturalization and citizenship.
Illegal-aliens have already flagrantly broken U.S. border, immigration and labor laws and placed and economic and social drain on our economy, public services, health system, and American taxpayers. They do not deserve to be rewarded with citizenship and the ability to bring in millions of extended family members to further drain and change this country.
The proposed U.S. Senate programs will result in open borders, annihilation of U.S. culture as we know it, and turning the United States of America into a third-world nation. It will bring socialism and economic and political destruction to the most powerful nation in the history of the world.
With no control over unlawful intrusions into our land, population and body politic, there will be an ever-growing permanent class of leftist-backed intruders who advocate and use mob rule and threats of anarchy to undermine and blackmail our government. The large numbers of arrogant illegal-alien throngs demonstrating, protesting in our streets, and demanding amnesty/U.S. citizenship recently were only the beginning.
Without protected borders, the rule of law, U.S. sovereignty integrity, and government answerable to its own legal citizens, we will have no democratic republic to protect. We will have no control over our own country and we will lose the freedoms and rights guaranteed under our Constitution, for we will be living in a socialist state. And the George Soros/Ted Kennedy hard-left socialists will have won.
This article by Robert Rector is a *****Five Star, must read, in which Rector takes apart the Comprehensive Imigration Reform Act now pending in the U.S. Senate and provides statistics that back up his arguments against the CIRA compromise bill devised by Senators Chuck Hagel and Mel Martinez. The Hagel-Martinez compromise is an endorsement for socialism and open borders---coming from, of all places, the soft pseudo-conservative wing of the Republican party. It could just as well have been written by Senator Ted Kennedy and Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
A brief synopsis below:
"How many people would the Senate’s immigration plan allow into the U.S.? Until now, the focus has been on the 10 million illegals to whom the bill would give amnesty.
Robert Rector adds up all the provisions. He finds the Senate plan would admit 103 million--or one-third the current U.S. population—over the next 20 years.
“There is no precedent for that level of immigration at any time in U.S. history,” observes Rector.
The low-skill immigrants who would take advantage of the Senate plan are likely to be a fiscal burden on society...."
"In this paper, Rector projects increased government spending of $46 billion per year or more. The Senate immigration plan 'would be the largest expansion of the welfare state in 35 years....'"

This is a related *****Five Star, must read column, "Amnesty S.O.S.," by Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, about the opportunity costs for supporting illegal-aliens among us and potential amnesty for them. Some excerpts below, the rest here. It starts with a timely joke:
"Senate staffer: “The public is rising up against amnesty!”
White House operative: “Quick, call the National Guard!”
The president will address the nation on immigration tonight and is expected to endorse, among other things, use of the National Guard to help patrol the border. Why such a dramatic gesture? Is there some new emergency that needs to be addressed with new methods? Has something changed in the situation along the border? No—but something has changed in the public mood.
In the wake of illegal aliens massing in the streets, waving Mexican flags, singing “Nuestro Himno,” and insisting that Americans comply with their list of demands—or else—public attitudes toward immigration are hardening, and beginning to have political consequences.
This is an emergency because the Senate will resume debate on an amnesty bill this week (hence the timing of the president’s address....) It’s clear that both the White House and the bipartisan amnesty crowd in the Senate think.... that a spoonful of enforcement will help the amnesty go down. Think again.
Part of the reason the pro-illegal side thinks this way is that the media have told them so. Most of the media polling on the immigration bills before Congress has been indistinguishable from the push polls conducted by pro-amnesty advocacy groups....
Polls are fine, but public support for border control doesn’t usually make itself felt at the ballot box. But that too appears to be changing....
....in Nebraska last week, immigration toppled the favored candidate in the Republican gubernatorial primary, Rep. Tom Osborne, in what was called “one of the most surprising defeats in Nebraska political history.” (His opponent) Heineman vetoed a bill providing in-state tuition for illegal aliens at state universities, while Osborne approved of the bill....
And just his weekend, pro-amnesty congressman Chris Cannon was forced into a June 27 primary by a wealthy businessman running on a border-control platform....
We don’t know exactly what the president will say tonight—but if it involves anything other than enforcement now, with discussion of legalizing illegals deferred until enforcement actually starts working, then the political tremors are likely to continue, and grow...."
