GOP Sellout - A Senseless Giveaway On Immigration

By Brian Darling - NRO

Sellout.” It may be harsh, but it’s the most accurate and succinct way to sum up how conservatives feel right now about President Bush and Senate Republicans, who have cut a deal that would grant amnesty to the estimated 12 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. — not to mention the parents, spouses, and children of these illegals.

Title VI of a draft copy of the bill breaks down amnesty visas into three categories:

Z-1 — Illegal aliens present and working in the United States up to Jan. 1, 2007.
Z-2 — Parents and spouses of illegal aliens qualifying under the Z-1 category.
Z-3 — Children of illegal aliens qualifying under the Z-1 category.These “Z Visa” holders can stay in the “Z” status indefinitely, which means they never have to pursue “a pathway to citizenship.” They also would be able to get Social Security numbers and benefit from some welfare programs. Shockingly, there is no cap on the numbers of amnesty recipients in the draft language. The only thing the Z Visa holder can’t do is vote — until, that is, a liberal judge declares this limitation unconstitutional or until a liberal president can railroad through a “technical corrections” bill.

Dear Mr. Tiger:
To quote Mr. Glenn Beck, "Blood is shooting out of my eyes" over immigration. The "solutions" are ludicrous to the point that there has to be a pupose-other than economics-which to my understanding-our economy will soon be saturated and have no further need for the type of labor illegals provide. What is the purpose? To get votes? To have "expendable" people when we fight terrorism openly in America? To lower standards in America by flooding the educational system with non-English speakers who usurp health insurance and social security to get America down to third world standards? To have an "enemy" for Americans to focus racism on in order to take our attention away from politics?
I just do not understand why we are not securing our borders, but rather are encouraging a flood of humanity who refuse to assimilate into our culture and who this country cannot afford. I do not understand why this immigration continues even though it has caused problems by allowing terrorists, drug dealers, and other criminals to victimize our country.
