Comprehensive Immigration Amnesty update

Despite what the polls may say about American's views on Immigration, Congress seems set to issue blanket Amnesty to those who enter our country illegally. In addition to the often mentioned amnesty from Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter we have seen many good articles on the issue from leading conservative thinkers.

The Senate is set to vote on Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act and when it passes, and it will pass, Amnesty will be the rule of the day.

Since many of our illegal Immigrants have had to show documentation of some sort to get jobs, Philly has a good story on it, where many immigrants have forged documents, which in effect amounts to Identity Theft but that is going to be forgiven in this case, when dealing with illegal Immigrants. Back taxes will be paid, or so the claim is made, and despite dire warnings of extreme stress on our social programs including Welfare, Social Security, and Food Stamps, it's full speed ahead in the Senate. We won't consider for a moment evicting those who are here in direct violation of the law.

My wise and thoughtful wife commented on this with an interesting observation. "When did we get a Frenchman in the White House who would surrender to Mexico?"

The President isn't alone in his surrender motives, we had to twist his arm to even pretend to defend our boarders. The President is joined by a majority of the Senate, and House, who are intent on buying re-election through this amnesty program.

The shame of our nation is evident, the outrage of her people is palpable, and the desire of the elected is evident. The Elected don't have the slightest interest in your desires. Instead, they desire a nation left open, at risk, and inundated by criminals.

Immigration is a great thing, it allows those with a desire to come here, and make a better life for their families, and makes our nation a better place with a new point of view to consider. Illegal Immigration is a crime, which should be obvious since illegal is part of the name.

How do we teach the next generation that playing by the rules and doing the RIGHT thing is important, when at every opportunity, our nation takes a short cut and ignores that obvious common sense approach in favor of the wrong thing.

I often wonder what happened to the spirit of this nation, best exemplified by John F. Kennedy's speech calling on this nation to go to the moon. "not because it is easy, but because it is hard." Apparently going to the Moon was easy, compared to enforcing the laws on immigration. We can't do that, it's too hard.
