There is absolutely no need for immigration reform (AMNESTY). We already have all the laws we need in the books.

What we need is immigration ENFORCEMENT. You know, the job our Federal Govt. refuses to do.

" The crackdown, however, does not lessen the need for reforms that also clean up the mess in which our immigration policies now find themselves. Secure borders, workable guest worker programs and sensible paths to legal residency and citizenship should be central to such changes."

Hart-Celler Act hearings 1965 Quote: Senate immigration subcommittee chairman Edward Kennedy (D-MA.) reassured his colleagues and the nation with the following:

"First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same ... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset ... Contrary to the charges in some quarters,[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia ... In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think."

Sen. Kennedy concluded by saying,

"The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1-3.)

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986

Our population is at 301 million because of decisions like these!

If you have a fire, you first do a "comprehensive" cleanup, before you rebuild. ICE must clean up the country, before anything further is approved by the citizens, not lobbyists.

There is no need for "reform" unless it makes it even harder on the illegals and employers than the current laws. When the political sell outs say comprehensive reform they mean amnesty. My one voice says no amnesty and reduce legal immigration and work visas.

Under a President Obama or McCain, some form of amnesty will pass. Guaranteed.

In the meantime, the 14th Amendment is all the amnesty we need.

The President does not enact law! Congress does.

AMNESTY is a dead issue. It will never happen ever again.
