Open Letter to John Gibson,Sean Hannity Jorge Ramos, John Boehner,Luis V. Gutierrez,Lindsey Graham &
Susan Collins

11/9/2012

The gentleman & Lady I've listed above are advocating amnesty for the 12-20 million (wag) illegal aliens in our country . I strongly disagree with their position for the following reasons.

In 1986 President Reagan signed off on a bill granting amnesty to 1 1/2- 2 Million illegal aliens, today I wonder how many thousands more of their family members are here now because of the current Chain
Immigration policy in place?

In the past 26 years since President Reagan signed that bill, because of politicians from both parties like Congressman John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez ,Senator Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins who have none nothing to help control both of our borders, except to stick their finger in the dike to appease the voters at home and not offend special interest groups ,12-20 Million more illegal aliens (wag) have entered our country and now because the finger caper didn't work, their solution to the problem is amnesty.

The message that people like John Gibson, Sean Hannity , Jorge Ramos, John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez,Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins are sending to immigrants around the world is that if you can enter our country illegally without getting caught and hide out for another 26 years, then sooner or later another amnesty will be granted.

Case in point, a large number of American Hispanic voters including Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez & Jorge Ramos have again rally their support for amnesty, and are using their vote to blackmail the Democrats into granting it. My question is what are those Hispanic Americans basing their support on?

My answer is it's based on the fact that a large number of the illegal aliens are also Hispanics which would appear to make their support based on race.( Google some of Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez's & Jorge Ramos comments on the subject).

Now if I say I don't support amnesty because it's wrong then those same people yell I'm a "Racist".

We currently have no control of illegal immigration into our country, yet continue to allow in around 900,000 legal immigrations a year, and now John Gibson,Sean Hannity Jorge Ramos, John Boehner, Luis V. Gutierrez, Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins want to add 12-20 Million illegal aliens (wag) to our population (315 Million), which doesn't include the millions more of their family members that will come here legally under the chain migration policy...

My question to John Gibson, Sean Hannity, Jorge Ramos, John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez, Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins that support amnesty is how many more immigrants will our country hold, and how many more legal & illegal ones entering our country will make you happy?

Just because you can walk across our borders or swim / wade across a river doesn't give someone a place at the head of the line here. The line for those people starts inside the border of their own country.

To compound the problem, under the 14 Amendment we have around 300,00 new American Citizens a year who are born in our country to illegal Hispanic women, and yes John, Sean, Jorge, John B., Luis, Lindsey & Susan a lot of them walk or swim/ wade across our borders just to have those new American babies..

My closing comment is granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens is not fair to immigrants waiting in their own country to enter here the legal way and violating our immigration laws should not be rewarded with American Citizenship, it's worth more than that!

The inscription at the base of the Statute of Liberty concludes, "I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" It says nothing about welcoming people who bypass our entry doors by climbing walls, swimming rivers and sneaking under border fences.

If hispanics had their way all of Mexico, south & central America would be crammed into the US. Hispanics care more for their so called "race" then the benefit of a country. Can you imagine the US turning into one of those God awful countries?

I speak to differ. You're comment is so negative. I bet you're white or racist. No offense but Hispanic people are very amicable, hard-working muy trabajodor & they're intelligent human being. Plus to inform you hispanics aren't the only alein immigrats residing in the U.S.A.

Broken? No, the laws aren't being enforced, had they been, and had our border been sealed as was promised in '86, we would not be having this discussion today. It would be prudent to eliminate birthright citizenship. Enforce the dang laws...go after the employers in a big way, make ID theft a major crime and tax the remittances they send home,

Tell that to the neighborhoods that have gone to shit after illegals move in. Tell that to business owners that claim you have to watch these people like hawks or they will take , not buy.
As for being the only illegals in this country, dimwit, millions are border-jumping south of our borders and in cause you are to stupid to know they can't border-jump over an ocean and they aren't coming from Canada so who does that leave? God you people are idiots.

Lets see. If congress passes a law and doesn't enforce those laws due to budget cuts, one has to wonder what good is your argument that they're not being enforced if such laws are being defunded to a point that it allows millions of illegal aliens to enter the USA?

Simply put... the system is broken.

It's time to reassess "Immigration Reform" the laws and rectify the problem.

Amnesty & citizenship is not the only issue. We can also end welfare to illegals, change the 14th amendment.... you see, it's a chance to open up a dialogue and throw your ideas on the table and find a compromise.

Wouldn't you accept a one time path to legalization "no citizenship" for an end to birthright citizenship? Heck I would.

However, if you insist on a tea bagger right wing mentality of my way or the highway, all you'll get is the continued stalemate in congress which only allows illegals to enter by the droves with no real solution to stop it or deter it.

If birthright citizenship was ended per your plan, I could acquiesce, because if that doesn't happen, another crush off illegals will swarm in just like they did after the '86 shamnesty. You see rico, some of us are open to compromise, if the money tree is finally chopped down for illegals.

Do you seriously expect me or any person with a brain to believe that illegal aliens which represent no more than 6%-8% of the total US population are the root cause to all of the socioeconomic ills that plague the USA.

Please... take your head out of your derrieres and surrender the hyperbole.

I agree with you. You see the 1986 amnesty & IR was an open ended policy that extended well into the Bush administration allowing millions to become citizens. It was a reward for breaking immigration law but it is what it is and new laws were to be implemented and enforced. That's not what's happening now.

Below is a brief history of 1986 to 2000 regarding the actions resulting due to the 1986 amnesty.

Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA), 1986: A blanket amnesty for some 2.7 million illegal aliens

Section 245(i) Amnesty, 1994: A temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens

Section 245(i) Extension Amnesty, 1997: An extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994

Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty, 1997: An amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America

Late Amnesty, 2000: An amnesty for some illegal aliens who claim they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty, an estimated 400,000 illegal aliens

LIFE Act Amnesty, 2000: A reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty, an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens

So if amnesty was to be handed out this time... the reward should not be citizenship. I don't see the USA incorporating a mass exodus of illegal aliens so I'm well aware that an amnesty will likely occur.

I don't agree on citizenship... maybe work permits... paths to legalization [i.e. temp resident, permeant resident, visas] but not citizenship.

I think that Harry Reid is stupid for halting IR just becuase Republicans insist that Citizenship is not an option.

So what if your US citizen kids went screwing around at the border [because kids and even young adults do that shit].... and some trigger happy troop decided that a .50 cal slug should go into your kids head because the "troop" had the STK order?

Think you fool... think!!!!

We cannot allow law enforcement to posses so much power. There is a thing called rules of engagement. If you're not cool with that then take your kids and go move to North Korea becuase that's the only place you'll get that kind of draconian border enforcement.

The fact that we agree on some things is a good thing and one that I wish happened more often. Ah, but tomorrow is another day, right?
