NO ENFORCEMENT PROMISED TO BORDER JUMPERS AND ANCHOR BABY BREEDERS:
Jose Herria emigrated illegally from Mexico to Stockton, Calif., in 1997 to work as a fruit picker. He brought with him his wife, Felipa, and three children, 19, 12 and 8 -- all illegals. When Felipa gave birth to her fourth child, daughter Flor, the family had what is referred to as an "anchor baby" -- an American citizen by birth who provided the entire Silverio clan a ticket to remain in the U.S. permanently.
THE DEMOCRATS’ AMNESTY HOAX: DESTRUCTION OF THE GOP, THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS AND 40 MILLION “UNREGISTERED DEMS” VOTING FOR MORE LA RAZA SUPREMACY AND LOOTING OF AMERICA.
When I say this whole debate over a “compromise” form of amnesty is kabuki, scripted out months ago by the open-borders crowd, I don’t mean that metaphorically. The pre-planned nature of this struck me at the House Judiciary Committee hearing a few weeks ago. San Antonio mayor Julian Castro (whose part-time job consists solely of chairing city-council meetings, by the way) insisted under questioning that a path to citizenship is the only option that Congress should consider, and was itself a “compromise” between open borders and mass deportation.
But then, his handler, Angela Kelley, head of immigration matters at the Center for American Progress and a key White House proxy on the issue, leaned forward and whispered in Castro’s ear. After that, he changed his tune slightly, saying a path to citizenship was the best outcome but that a lesser status might be acceptable. It wouldn’t surprise me me if Angela Kelley and White House immigration coordinator Cecilia Muñoz have actually done conference calls with staff for Rubio and Bush gaming out this strategy.
The question before us is not how illegal immigrants should be legalized, but whether they should be amnestied at all. And until we have a real enforcement infrastructure in place, the answer has to be “no.”

The Obama administration has also cut worksite enforcement efforts by 70%, allowing illegal immigrants to continue working in jobs that rightfully belong to citizens and legal workers.
THE ENTIRE REASON THE BORDERS ARE LEFT OPEN IS TO CUT WAGES!
"We could cut unemployment in half simply by reclaiming the jobs taken by illegal workers," said Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, co-chairman of the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus. "President Obama is on the wrong side of the American people on immigration. The president should support policies that help citizens and legal immigrants find the jobs they need and deserve rather than fail to enforce immigration laws."
