About Americas Immigration Problem
Written by JB Williams
Most Americans have
identified continuing illegal immigration as our nation’s biggest
problem. Protecting America
against future terror attacks is job one, yet that job is impossible with wide
open borders. Reports of our Border used to
smuggle WMDs inside America are growing by the day. President
Bush recently called for 6000 national guard troops to be sent to our southern
border with Mexico,
but with orders not to engage illegal intruders. He is also proposing what some
see as amnesty for some 12 to 20 million illegal aliens already here.
89% of the American
population says illegal immigration is a serious problem. Public demands for
action in Washington DC
have become shrill and yet, when the US Senate recently voted on a measure to
close the borders before discussing amnesty for those already here, the measure
was voted down 55 to 40, with 37 Democrats and 18 Republicans opposing the idea
of closing the border immediately. Presidential hopeful John McCain
didn’t bother to vote at all. Why?
People and Purpose behind our Open Borders
An organization often
referred to by sane people as America’s “shadow government”,
the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), is at a minimum, the most powerful and
influential organization (think tank) in America today, providing direct
“counsel” to all areas of our government, the DOD, the State
Department, the Department of Education, pretty much every facet of the US
government and CFR policy initiatives are evident in nearly every national
policy decision made in the last 60 years.
CFR issued a very telling
2005 report titled Building
a North American Community. This 59 page report is a must read
for any American seeking to fully understand our immigration problem. According
to CFR, (like the recent United Nations statement), there is no such thing as
“illegal immigration”. The CFR report begins with a general
premise, “these three countries,
Canada and Mexico],
face common security dangers, and these
borders will be crossed some 400 million times in 2005.”
CFR further states,
“As liberal democracies, the
governments also share common principles, upholding the rule of law, and
ensuring equal opportunity for their citizens.” An interesting
statement I thought, for an organization promoting “illegal”
immigration. They are certainly not referring to upholding American laws.
CFR then begins to lay
out the vision by proposing, “the
creation by 2010 of a North American community to enhance security, prosperity
and opportunity.” CFR defines this North American community as
follows, “Its boundaries will be
defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter within
which the movement of people, products and capital will be legal, orderly and
If you look at current
events after reviewing this CFR report, America’s
immigration problem will become crystal clear. In case you’re wondering,
this is the official path Washington
is currently on, defined in detail in the Security
and Prosperity Partnership of North America dated March of 2005,
signed by the United States,
Canada and Mexico.
Forget any notions that this is in any way a partisan matter. This is an
international effort…supported by both democrats and republicans in Washington
Once again, the nation is
torn apart over the political bouncy-ball of national immigration policy.
Public opinion is united regarding the severity of the problem, but all over
the board regarding what to do about it.
Americans have not yet
decided whether the Bush proposal currently gaining support in congress is
actually a proposal for amnesty or not. Make no mistake; if it isn’t
blanket amnesty, it is certainly a very short narrow road to amnesty.
I’ll make a much less ambiguous proposal for amnesty that can not be
missed by anyone, including the dunderheads in Washington
Assuming that we actually
want to secure our borders and really control the flow of foreigners in and out
of our country, assuming we still desire a free self-governed sovereign nation
operating under a rule of law established of, by and for the “legal”
citizens of the United States,
a case must be made for amnesty.
Before I can make such a
controversial proposal, I must first insist that we seal our borders tight, not
allowing even one more uninvited guest to enter this nation without severe
consequence ever again. I don’t care how we do it or how much it costs,
just do it! We have more than 100,000 troops protecting Iraq.
Use however many it takes to protect America.
DO IT NOW!
Once the borders are
sealed, I propose full amnesty for any illegal alien currently in the US
without proper documentation. However, there are a few conditions…
One time ONLY, amnesty
is offered for only a 60 day window of time. (Never again)
During this 60 day
period, illegals must present themselves at an INS office for application
processing. (All family members must apply individually)
Applicants with any
criminal background will be denied and deported immediately.
Heads of households
without proof of gainful employment will be denied and deported with their
Amnesty will NOT
include voting rights, ever.
Any illegal alien
who does not present themselves during the 60 day Amnesty period, is
automatically deemed guilty of a felony offense and considered to be a fugitive
from the law.
After the amnesty
period, any US business or individual caught employing a fugitive will be
severely punished, as will any government official that offers any form of
tax-payer funded assistance of any kind, including but not limited to medical
treatment, housing, food, or anything else necessary to sustain life.
Amnesty does not
include full citizenship, as in voting privileges. It provides only legal
status and equal protection, rights and opportunities under the law.
Money earned in the US
can not be sent out of the US
to support anti-US agendas.
There will be NO
extensions to the amnesty period, and NO exceptions for those who do
not apply during that
That’s my proposal
for amnesty. These are the conditions and they are all there for a reason.
I’ll leave the debate up to you. But remember, the powers that be in America
have a very different vision for America’s
future than most American citizens do. Any effort to protect this sovereign nation
at this time must be swift, fair and decisive. Rounding up 12 to 20 million is
unlikely, which means they need a good reason to come forward on their own. Any
who don’t, will have decided their own fate.
Google will undoubtedly
deem this column “hate speech”, as will most illegal aliens and
many in Washington
wrangling over 12 to 20 million new voters. But do I have any takers among real
