CA has lots of reasons to hang onto its roughly 2.2 – 3.5 million illegals (PROBABLY CLOSER TO 15 MILLION). They provide cheap, easily-exploited labor. As illegal immigrants are fed into the system, they provide reliable (legal or illegal) Democrat votes. And they make Californians feel virtuous even as they allow corrupt Latin American states to continue exploiting their own citizens and destroying their economies by relying on remittances from people illegally in America.

ILLEGALS - CAN WE AFFORD TO BE MEXICO'S JOBS, JAILS, WELFARE, BREEDING GROUNDS AND LAND of LOOTING?
AMERICA CANNOT AFFORD MORE
January 30, 2012
face it—the entire third world, which comprises much of Africa, Asia, Mexico,
Central America and South America would love to migrate to the United States of
America. Three to four billion human beings subsist on less than $2 daily.
Millions line up to immigrate legally each year. Millions more line up to
immigrate illegally. They move to America for a better life.
four billion wanna-be immigrants. As it is, America takes more immigrants than
all other countries combined. It cannot continue on its current path if it
expects to survive the 21st century with any sense of ecological, economical
and standard of living viability.

our current rate of legal immigration, our kids will have to deal with 75
million immigrants within 24 years and 100 million more immigrants landing in
this country within the next 38 years. That’s a numerical fact. If Americans
continue to be apathetic, lethargic and just plain stupid, their kids will reap
you can see below, our Congress continues dallying, delaying and obfuscating
any meaningful action. But it continues mass immigration without pause.
chairman of the Immigration, Border Security, and Claims Subcommittee of the
House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Hostettler held a hearing on July 18, 2006:
“Should we embrace the Senate’s grant of amnesty to millions of illegal aliens
and repeat the mistakes of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986?”
11 MILLION ILLEGALS? THEY’VE
BEEN USING THAT PHONY NUMBER FOR THE LAST TWO DECADES AS MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS
HOPPED OUR BORDERS, JOBS AND BREED LIKE BUNNIES FOR ANCHOR BABY WELFARE!
there are approximately 11 million illegal aliens in the United States, making
illegal immigration one of the most serious issues facing our nation,” said
Hostettler. “In May, the Senate passed legislation that would provide amnesty
for most of the illegal aliens currently in the U.S., in a way that is eerily
similar to the amnesty Congress granted in 1986.
this hearing we have the opportunity to examine how the U.S. dealt with illegal
immigration 20 years ago, why that approach did not work, and the direction we
should take in light of our past failure. In 1986, there were approximately
3-million illegal aliens in the U.S. Congress responded by passing the
Immigration Reform and Control Act, or IRCA. There are several key features to
IRCA. First, it provided amnesty to 2.7-million illegal aliens in several
who had been illegally present since 1982 were granted a general amnesty, while
agricultural workers who arrived more recently were granted amnesty under the
Special Agricultural Worker Program. The amnesty was accompanied by a plan
designed to stop employment of illegal aliens in the U.S. IRCA created an
employer sanctions scheme for employers who knowingly hired illegal aliens, and
required employers to check the identity and work eligibility documents of all
employees, to ensure lawful immigration status.
the time, policy makers truly believed that it would be a one-time amnesty, and
the problem of illegal immigration would be solved. Congress rejected
recommendations made by the Select Commission on Immigration and Refugee Policy
in 1981, which stated, in part:
The Commission believes that
a legalization program is a necessary part of enforcement, but it does not
believe that the U.S. should begin the process of legalization until new
enforcement measures have been instituted to make it clear that the U.S. is
determined to curtail new flows of undocumented illegal aliens. Without more
effective enforcement than the U.S. has had in the past, legalization could
serve as a stimulus to further illegal entry. The Select Commission is opposed
to any program that could precipitate such movement.
Alan Simpson (R-WY), co-author of IRCA, affirmed his commitment to amnesty in
exchange by stating, “I firmly believe that a one-time only legalization
program is not only good public policy, it is good sense, and it is fully in
the best interests of this country.” Time showed us that IRCA has utterly and
completely failed, mainly due to the fact that Congress did not heed the
warning of the Select Commission regarding the need for real enforcement prior
to any discussion of such legislation.
immigration has not been controlled, but has increased significantly in the
past two decades. Employer sanctions have been enforced in a farcical manner.
Furthermore, the I-9 [Employment Eligibility Verification Form] system has
proved to be a failure, because an illegal alien can cheaply and easily obtain
counterfeit documents to show his or her employer. Employers, in a Catch 22
situation, cannot require additional proof that the documents presented are
legitimate for fear of running afoul of discrimination laws.
May , the Senate passed the Reid-Kennedy Amnesty, which is remarkably
similar to the 1986 amnesty. The Reid-Kennedy bill also provides several
categories of amnesty, including a general amnesty for anyone who can show that
he has been in the country for more than five years, and including an
agriculture amnesty. Again, proponents of the current proposals believe that
this amnesty will solve the problem once and for all. But Congress and the
administration have no credibility with the American people.
should Americans have any reason to believe that the supposed enhanced
enforcement provisions in Reid-Kennedy will be effectively enforced by the
administration any more than successive administrations have enforced IRCA? The
administration will probably implement amnesty for millions of illegal aliens
quite quickly. Enforcement will likely lag behind, if it occurs at all.
will find ourselves in exactly the same place we found ourselves 20 years ago.
Amnesty sends out the message that the U.S. is not serious about enforcing our
laws. It is an affront to the millions of immigrants...who wait their turn and
use the legal immigration system. When the U.S. grants amnesty and forgives law
breaking, it encourages more illegal immigration in the future. The grant of
amnesty in 1986 did nothing to resolve the illegal immigration problem; it made
the problem worse, as increased numbers of illegal aliens pour across the
border waiting for their turn.
an amnesty, a new wave of illegal aliens will come to wait for theirs. I
believe that Benjamin Franklin once said that “The definition of insanity is
doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.” We
cannot expect to solve the problem of illegal aliens by encouraging law
breaking through amnesty. It didn’t work in 1986, and it will certainly not
work in 2006.”
won’t work in 2012. Our U.S Congress continues to dither while millions flood
into our country. We face ominous consequences as to numbers, languages,
cultures and poverty. It is not possible to continue on our current immigration
by the numbers—off the chart” by Roy Beck
don’t know why Americans aren’t marching in the streets, screaming at every
mayor, governor, U.S. senator, House rep and media outlet. I am beyond
understanding why our citizens choose this accelerating death spiral of our
country. But because of our apathy, the immigrants keep pouring into this
country at over 100,000 per month (legally), they birth children at 900,000
annually and the illegals never stop their onslaught. Folks, we face incredible
consequences, but we continue our apathy that will lead to our demise. I have
been writing these warnings weekly for 20 years and still, no action by
Americans or our leaders. We must want to destroy our civilization and way of
life. We will get our wish if we continue on this path.
