Illegal immigration is simply 'share the wealth’ socialism and a CRIME not a race!

William Wilberforce, the British parliamentarian and abolitionist, told his colleagues, “Having heard all of this, you may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.”

If a program has to ignore laws to work - it's a program that's not meant to work.

Where is your intellectual curiosity about immigration? 
The Center for Immigration Studies has a great article today titled, "A Blueprint for Immigration Reform"about the one and only Congresswoman Barbara Jordan and the commission she headed to study immigration policy in the '90's, who we have written about before.
We haven't seen a common sense statesman from the left like this outstanding democrat legislator in decades.    Do yourself a favor one day, find a video of Jordan and listen to her speak.  She was amazing.
The CIS article tells us, "It was generally known as the Jordan Commission, named for the late Barbara Jordan, the powerful woman who served the longest period as the Commission's chairwoman. The Jordan Commission, unlike the current White House, took its time to do its work, and decided, unanimously, that there was no need for an alien legalization program. Its work was summed up in these words:
The credibility of immigration policy can be measured by a simple yardstick: people who should get in, do get in; people who should not get in are kept out; and people who are judged deportable are required to leave.2"
 AH.............HOW simple and SWEET it is!   THAT's a lost art in politics today!  And THAT is also the LAW!
The detailed and thoughtful recommendations in the Commission's 1997 final report,3 called for the nation to:
  • Integrate the immigrants now in the United States more thoroughly;
  • Reduce the total number of legal immigrants to about 550,000 a year;
  • Rationalize the nonimmigrant visa programs and regulate them;
  • Enforce the immigration law vigorously with no further amnesties; and
  • Re-organize the management of the immigration processes within the government.
 Now, don't fool yourself for a moment, Jordan wasn't and isn't the only democrat/progressive who thought the way she and her commission did.  Today we have  Progressives for Immigration Reform with their platform:

  1. Reduce annual immigration into the United States from its current
    1.2 million to between 300,000 and 550,000 people.
  2. Rework trade and foreign aid policies to improve conditions for people
    in our major immigration sender countries.
  3. Mandate the use of E-verify for all new hires and enforce serious penalties
    on employers who hire workers illegally.
  4. Avoid any expansion of "guest worker" programs.
 It appears that not only do hacks like John McCain fail to listen to the people who put him in office, but the democrats like Obama don't listen to their constituents either.  But then, Obama doesn't need you liberals or Black Americans any more, does he?  He's got a NEW constituency who likes his socialist, anti-American agenda.
A recent survey sums up the real problem with one question:
When asked why there is a large illegal population in the country, voters overwhelming (71 percent) thought it was because we had not made a real effort to enforce our immigration laws. Only 18 percent said it was because we were not letting in enough immigrants legally.
If a program has to ignore laws to work - it is a program that is not meant to work.
