IMMIGRATION REFORM FOVORS ILLEGAL ALIENS AHEAD OF AMERICANS
By Frosty Wooldridge

You must understand the duplicity of our U.S. Congress and President Obama. They place the interests of illegal aliens and businesses who hire them over and above American citizens. The White House and Congress place illegality of businesses who hire illegal aliens and the illegality of the alien migrants—above 47 million Americans who cannot secure jobs, but must live on taxpayer funded food stamps.
Ironically, Obama and Congress import 100,000 legal immigrants every 30 days in light of the fact that we suffer 14 million unemployed Americans. They import green card-holding Somalian, Congolese, Sudanese and Indian immigrants who displace and take jobs from our own minority working poor. When those immigrants can’t find jobs, they apply for and receive welfare in free food, housing, medical and allowances. It costs you billions of dollars as a taxpaying American. With 100,000 immigrants added every 30 days, there is no let-up.
Yet, Congress and Obama want to legalize 20 million illegal aliens to give them access to our Social Security, housing, food stamps, medical and schools. In a swoop of the pen, our financially broken and $16 trillion in-debt country will take on 20 million dish washers, nannies, gardeners and unskilled and uneducated poor. The Heritage Foundation projected the total cost of legalizing 12 million illegals at over $3 trillion. With greater numbers, it will rise to $5 trillion. It defies anyone’s imagination.
Obama won’t enforce the laws on the books, but he and Congress want to legalize illegality. They won’t enforce any new laws either, thus, millions more can be expected to pour into America like a Human Katrina.
“Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide [that adds 80 million net gain annually to the planet], but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all—ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.” Dr. Otis Graham, Unguarded Gates
Another reader remarked, “My suspicion is that the figure is closer to 15 million illegals not ten million. If one ever thought that politicians were far sighted, here is an example of extreme myopia. All of this endless business of immigration as a means to an increased quality of life for millions is driven by delusion and illusion. Technology and hope can only support so much insanity as is seen in the government. Water tables collapse, green spaces disappear and wilderness shrinks in the face of numbers. More laws, more pesticides, herbicides, anti- biotics as the population swells while the overall quality of the environment declines and so does life. Politicians are not educated; they are just well trained glad-handers with, in most cases, a need for self-aggrandizement. A very sad commentary on the condition of life boat Earth. If you had a 12 pound turkey( can be a politician) for food in a life boat with 15 people in it with no sign of land for weeks, why would you pull on board another 15 people and another and another? Wake up! The Earth is a life boat; unless, you think divine intervention will save us. We are alone in this cosmic sea until we get it right!”
Dan Stein, president of The Federation for American Immigration Reform, www.FAIRUS.org spoke to me about what we face:
“President Obama’s outline for overhauling the nation’s immigration policy places the interests of illegal aliens above the vital interests of American workers and taxpayers,” said Stein. “The president’s speech in Las Vegas sketched out a reform plan designed to aid and abet those who broke our immigration laws, increase competition for American workers, and pander to those who politically profit from illegal immigration, rather than truly fix a system that has been broken for decades.
“President Obama’s plan offers nothing to American workers except the certainty of even greater competition for scarce jobs and further suppression of their wages. It offers nothing to American taxpayers except assurance they will pay ever increasing costs as millions of low-skilled illegal immigrants move through the amnesty process and become eligible for government assistance programs.
“President Obama’s immigration reform plan is sadly premised on the notion that it is the illegal immigrants who are the victims of our nation’s dysfunctional immigration policies, and our policies must be changed to address their grievances. In fact, it is the American people who are the true victims of our dysfunctional immigration policies, and especially this president’s defiant refusal to enforce laws meant to protect them.”
“Immigration “reform,” as outlined by the president, would not only leave our failed policy of family chain migration in place, but would actually speed up admissions of extended relatives who enter the country irrespective of their job skills and education. The plan also calls for increases in employment-based immigration, even as we are still grappling with historically high levels of unemployment affecting workers in virtually all segments of our labor market.”
While promising amnesty and increased legal immigration, President Obama offered nothing regarding enforcement of the law, except maintaining the same non-enforcement policies he has implemented during his first term.
“Given President Obama’s record on immigration enforcement, his promises to secure the border and enforce federal law are simply worthless. For one thing the GAO recently chastised the administration for its claims that our borders are under control by noting that the administration does not even have a ‘yardstick’ for measuring operational control of our borders.
“Second, President Obama has asserted virtually unlimited discretion to ignore the immigration laws. He has also demonstrated a willingness to grant blanket work authorization to entire classes of illegal aliens. Much like REAL ID, it could be years, even a decade or more, before the mandate for universal E-Verify is carried out. In the meantime, countless millions of new illegal immigrants are likely to show up with the assurance that as long as they do not commit a violent crime, there will be no consequence for violating our immigration laws.
“President Obama’s actions during his first administration made it clear that his immigration policies are geared toward satisfying the economic and political interests of illegal aliens and their supporters. The legislative plan he outlined today confirms that the interests of the American people are not part of his vision of immigration reform.”
