Leftist 'Human Rights' Group:
Illegal Aliens are Like Children. The only blatant racism I've seen has been entirely from
the other side of the debate, and this has taken two distinct forms. One consists of ethnic solidarity
groups like "La Raza" (Spanish for "The Race," if you had any doubt regarding their central motive) and the
other is composed of white liberals condescendingly out to help their little brown brothers as a sort
of "pet" project in feel-good paternalism.|
Immigration madness. It
is almost inconceivable that an argument is taken seriously that we don't have the right to secure our borders
and determine who shall enter our country. Not only has such lunacy become respectable, but our mainstream
media instantly, instinctively embraces such a position. Every radio headline newscast, almost every
newspaper and television report willfully refuses to distinguish between illegal and legal
immigrants. Each report stamps the mark of evil on the forehead of all who would guard
immigration: Our immigration mess is like a three-legged stool. Fixing one
leg is no better than doing nothing. … I wonder how many conservatives who embrace the
anti-immigrant message know that their fellow travelers' roots are in the pro-abortion,

citizenship. Today it is vital that we adopt a policy that separates those aliens seeking
permanent status from those only interested in temporary employment opportunities. Unfortunately,
much of the present debate treats the groups as if they are one and the same.
this corporate scandal now. Is the administration tolerating an increased risk
of terrorism because it doesn't want to stop big businesses from hiring illegal aliens?
The Making of 'Londonistan': Like
much of Europe, Britain's demographic composition is changing radically and very fast. At the most
conservative estimate, its population of sixty million will rise over the next three decades by six or
seven million, with 83 percent of that new growth coming from immigration and most of that from the
Gingrich: The GOP is 'Drifting
Toward Disaster'. With Senate Republicans "drifting toward disaster" on immigration, former
House Speaker Newt Gingrich said it's up to President Bush to reconnect with the majority of Americans who
support a strong enforcement-first approach.
Just give me
some truth on immigration. Twelve million. That's the number of illegal immigrants
living right now in the United States, according to a just-released study by the Pew Hispanic
Center. The majority are from Mexico.
hurt Americans. When there are many willing workers, employers cut wages. That
is simple supply and demand. Illegal immigrants who take low-skilled jobs reduce wages and
take jobs from both citizens and legal immigrants.
The Top Ten Reasons To Enforce Our
Immigration Laws: Our immigration laws exist for good reasons: to protect our safety,
our national sovereignty, our standard of living, our health, and our culture. Those who break them
may "want a better life for themselves," but then again, so do all who enrich themselves by disregarding
thoughts on immigration: You know why immigration brings people to a boiling point, separates
races, and creates classes in our society? It's simple,
Hard line Mexican and Latin Americans coming across the border to Texas and California believe the states
belong to them. Because of the United States' contentious history with its southern neighbors, these
extremist Mexican immigrant groups coming across the border couldn't care less about assimilating with
American society, and in fact prefer not to. For they believe that it's their land and that
Americans better leave or get used to their presence.
The Illegal Immigration
Emergency: The Southwestern states are being inundated by illegal aliens
trashing ranches, killing cattle, committing crimes and eating up tax dollars. The
traffic in narcotics and human beings from Mexico is a national scandal and a human rights
disgrace. What is true of New Mexico and Arizona is true of our nation, which is now
home to an estimated 10 million to 15 million aliens who have broken our laws and
broken into our country.
The immigrant "cheap
labor" myth: The truth is, immigrants — legal and illegal — inflict
a net drain on the U.S. economy, when you factor in all of the expenses associated with providing
them taxpayer- and consumer-supported benefits and services.
taboos: There are thousands of Americans who might still be alive
if we had banned immigration from Saudi Arabia — and perhaps that might be more important
than the rhetoric of the intelligentsia. In that rhetoric, all differences between peoples
are magically transformed into mere "stereotypes" and "perceptions." This blithely ignores
hard data showing, for example, that people who come here from some countries are ten times
more likely to go on welfare as people from some other countries.
Brown is the
new black. This is the only country on Earth that thinks it's not sporting to consider
our own interests in choosing immigrants. Try showing up in any other country on the planet,
illiterate and penniless, and announcing: "I've seen pictures of your country and it looks
great. I think I'd like to live here! Oh, and by the way, would you mind changing all
your government and business phone messages, street signs and ballots into my native
language? Thanks!" They would laugh you out of the country.
Immigration Debate Is Symptomatic of
Society Unable to Say 'No'. What is it that makes people here for decades and centuries
cower in front of those here illegally, arriving only yesterday? What is it that makes people
unwilling to lay claim to their own land and country? It is guilt. It is
fear. It is a brainwashing that has convinced so many that every member of the world
is entitled to U.S. constitutional and welfare "rights." It is a society that no longer
believes in itself as a specific culture or even a sovereign country. Worse, it is a society
so emotionally weak that it will accept disease, terrorism, crime, bankruptcy and the disintegration
of its own chosen laws rather than being called racist, even though such charges are false.
The Invasion Force Shows
Itself. Did you know that one in ten Mexicans now living who were born in Mexico are now
in the United States? Eighty-five percent of them are here illegally. Of those marching
yesterday [4/10/2006], it is estimated that 80% of them were Mexicans, and the vast majority of them
were here illegally.
Myth vs. Fact:
Politicians and pundits are defending illegal immigration with worn-out myths that can easily be proven wrong.
Mom, Dad and illegal
nanny: An American tale. Without the "undocumented nanny" to fall back on, many
middle-class parents would have to stay home. Such a shift would have untold repercussions, not
least of which would be on the little one. Without two-career parental largesse, he might actually
grow into the kind of teenager who is willing to work hard and cheap — busing tables, washing cars,
working construction and cutting grass. In short, the model young citizen.
Mamá all about it. The timing was perfect. Just as a growing number of
American women were entering the labor force, a massive wave of immigration — much of it
undocumented — was headed north from Mexico and Central America. With so many U.S. women
leaving the home in the 1970s and 1980s, the demand for paid domestic work skyrocketed, particularly
in urban areas with large immigrant populations.
Tsunami, Part 1. According to a January Report by the investment firm of Bear
Stearns there may now be as many as twenty million illegal immigrants in the United
States. The Center for Immigration Studies and the Federation for American
Immigration Reform had estimates of ten to twelve million illegals in the country
in late 2004. As illegal immigration is, of course, illegal and kept as quiet
as possible, it is hard to get a handle on how many illegal immigrants are
here. The three sources agree, however, that the numbers are growing rapidly.
Part 2: Recent estimates by a major investment firm and two research firms have placed
the number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. at between ten and twenty million. All the estimate
revisions seem to move constantly upward. Obviously, our immigration problem is so enormous and
out of control that it is very difficult even to measure. Some have very appropriately termed the
immigration tsunami an invasion.
Part 3: The cheap labor we are selling out our country for is actually not so
cheap. It is only cheap to the big corporations and smaller businesses that recruit and
use illegal immigrant labor. The rest of America pays the education, medical and
welfare bills and the higher taxes.
Stem the Flow of Illegal
Jobs. It is this reporter's opinion that if we eliminate the jobs provided to illegal aliens by
greedy employers, we will go far in reducing the flow of illegal aliens into the United States. Shut off
the jobs and they will stop coming!
A 'no truth'
zone? There are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United
States. The majority of these come from Mexico and Central America. Contrary
to the stereotype, however, they are not all farm workers or domestics. Nearly
one-third of them own their own homes, and many have U.S.-born children. In other
words, they have roots in this country. Many of them provide cheap labor, which we
all benefit from. But none of this changes the fact that they are here in violation
of U.S. law. Nor should their success make us feel better about our porous borders.
wilderness. The problem is that we have unsuccessfully tried this approach before,
from 1942 to 1964, with the so-called braceros — the hired "arms" from Mexico. Various
programs to bring Mexican laborers across the border were initially small, supposedly temporary, and
aimed only at alleviating wartime shortages of labor. But some 4 million braceros later,
the idea of guest workers had evolved into a huge labor exchange, delivering hardworking — and
very cheap — farm workers to American employers, most of them large agribusiness concerns.
insanity: A congressional report notes that groups of illegal immigrants routinely
tramp across Fort Huachuca, a military base in Arizona. More than 3,000 illegals were
detained on the base last year. The Washington Times reports that immigrants "routinely
wander through base housing units, drink from hoses and pools, and trample through the yards
of military families and other private areas."

Representatives is based fairly on the geographic distribution of our population.
against U.S. citizens. Corporations are induced to import foreign workers not only because
the cost of their wages and benefits is substantially less, but because many federal laws (open-borders
policies plus the promiscuous granting of H-1B and L-1 visas) encourage discrimination against American
workers. Outsourcing jobs to a foreign country enables the corporations to avoid the numerous
regulations with which U.S. businesses must comply.
Porous southern border
adds to danger shared by local police. The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and
Claims held a hearing in February  to question officials from New York City and Houston about their
"sanctuary" ordinances, which deter or even prohibit local police from reporting undocumented immigrants
to federal authorities.

Social Security Won't Alert
INS to Illegals. Although the FBI and CIA are now reputedly chatting away, there is a
growing school of thought that the more mundane IRS and SSA need to get on the information-sharing
superhighway as well.
Making Colonies out of
Nation-States: While the British worry about losing cities to Third World immigrants, the
United States is losing entire states. Assimilation has broken down. In its place, Americans
now endure Third World enclaves or colonies.

this is not our parents' country. Ethically, it stopped being their country in the 1960s.
Ethnically, it now resembles not a united nation, but a United Nations, with divisions along class,
racial, religious, language and ideological lines. Our national motto,
E pluribus unum ("out of many, one,") no longer applies.
Use Semis to Smuggle in Illegal Aliens: Border Patrol agents are finding
an increasing number of semi-trailer trucks loaded with illegal aliens, officials said
Thursday [8/22/2002]. Border Patrol agent Xavier Rios said agents are not sure why
trailer smuggling is increasing so rapidly, but there are more trucks on the road in
South Texas because of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Legalizing Aliens Would Alienate
Citizens: Missouri Democrat Dick Gephardt received a standing ovation when he told the
