Just what we need more U.S. government military training for Mexican drug cartels. Isn't it bad enough we give the Mexican government money to train drug cartel members?

Sure they do. Ignorant immigrants make great cannon fodder.

The Army just needs some more warm bodies. It happened in Viet Nam and now they're ready again. It would be like a legal draft without the draft cards.

I don't care what some military chief thinks. They are charged with fighting and winning wars, not determining what out immigration policy should look like.

Of course the military chief favors legalizing young illegal aliens. The Army will need far more bodies for cannon fodder in the upcoming Korean war than the USA can provide. We found out in the first Korean War and the Vietnam War how many Asian soldiers can be thrown at our troops and outnumber them drastically.

Now, with close to 20 million illegals squatting in the USA, many who have been breeding little cannon fodder for over a decade, the Army is getting what it wants.

No one wants to hear that there have been plans in Washington for a Korean and Iran war for many years. The PNAC drew up those plans and they've been followed so far. War with Iraq was in those plans, too. The illegal alien invasion helped out the powers that be in many ways, not the least of which was supplying massive amounts of foreign cannon fodder in breeding pairs the USA just can't match.

Could it be that our open southern border is really a web, and the spiders in Washington are sweetly saying,'come into my parlor'? What delicious irony. Illegals will only get what they paid for, and since they paid nothing, but gave us grief, they will get nothing but grief in return.

"...legalize young immigrants who came to the country illegally."

Lol-could the article writer have contorted the truth any more? NOT '...young illegal immigrants....'

Just more cannon fodder for the military. That's all they care about.

Development,Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act of 2010


The DREAM Act allows illegal "teens" to petition for their parents, leading
eventually to their aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins:

The big argument for this amnesty is that it is for teenagers who are here
illegally because their parents broke the law. Even with the new
"less-than-30" age requirement, far more than teens can get this amnesty
(and Sen. Durbin has included "humanitarian" and "family unity" exceptions
to the age limit). Nonetheless, the argument is that the teenagers should
not be punished for the crimes of their parents.

But as soon as DREAM amnesty citizens are over 21, they can bring in their
parents who broke the law to get them into the country. The chief criminals
will be rewarded after all.

And because of Chain Migration, the amnestied "teens" can see their aunts,
uncles, cousins and grandparents getting permanent U.S. residency as well.

Three Decades of Mass Immigration

The Legacy of the 1965 Immigration Act


1965 Immigration act,

Quote: Among those who more accurately foresaw the future effects of the change in immigration law was a certain Myra C. Hacker, Vice President of the New Jersey Coalition, who testified at a Senate immigration subcommittee hearing:

"In light of our 5 percent unemployment rate, our worries over the so called population explosion, and our menacingly mounting welfare costs, are we prepared to embrace so great a horde of the world's unfortunates? At the very least, the hidden mathematics of the bill should be made clear to the public so that they may tell their Congressmen how they feel about providing jobs, schools, homes, security against want, citizen education, and a brotherly welcome ... for an indeterminately enormous number of aliens from underprivileged lands."

"We should remember that people accustomed to such marginal existence in their own land will tend to live fully here, to hoard our bounteous minimum wages and our humanitarian welfare handouts ... lower our wage and living standards, disrupt our cultural patterns ..."

"Whatever may be our benevolent intent toward many people,[the bill] fails to give due consideration to the economic needs, the cultural traditions, and the public sentiment of the citizens of the United States." (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 681-687.)

Hart-Celler Act hearings 1965


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.)

Of course he supports it. After seeing his photo on TV, there's no mystery as to why. He's a black man.

Watching C-Span

The bill they are voting on was changed TODAY!

So much for open process and transparency!

Who has read it?

I thought bills were going to be posted for 5 days!

There is no verification at all- anyone who applies qualifies.

Applicants are not going to be investigated to make sure they were herE before 16 or have a real high school diploma.( buy a diploma . com)

DHS had to bring people out of retirement to process American passports when the rules were changed and you needed a passport to come back from Canada and Mexico! How are they going to process a core dump of 2.1 million- they can't . Not that they want to.

Illegals can already join the military and get swift citizenship.

The GED they claim to have does not have to be in English!WTF

Can you say The "United States Foreign Legion"?



After three years of service, a legionnaire can ask for the French nationality and may also be entitled to a French resident permit if he has obtained a certificate of satisfactory military service. The resident permit is valid for ten years and is renewable.

At the end of his career the legionnaire is assisted in his return to civilian life.
