Most Americans do not see a need for immigration reform or amnesty. Many of us can recall from our youth, The New Colossus:
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
We are the shining light on the hill, so what is the problem? It turns out the problem is the Democratic party and the Immigration Act of 1965. One has been infiltrated by socialists and the other was written by a group of men whom have disorganized shit-fights the envy of wild monkeys everywhere.
The Immigration Act of 1965 caused massive illegal immigration from Mexico as their was a high demand for agriculture workers and insufficient supply. Congress had set quotes of immigration visas well below what was needed to sustain the demand. Since then, on two occasions the Congress has enacted forgiveness policies to "document" many of these workers. Still, it is estimated that there may be up to 20 million more illegal immigrants since the last time this was enacted.
The Democrats led by President Obama are seeking to reform immigration to provide provsions for "unifying families" by permitted legal relatives to come ot the United States. This is called pyramiding. The President plans on granting amnestry to 4-5 million illegal immigrants and then through a streamlined (fast) process allow them to obtain permanent resident status. Once resident status is obtained these immigrants are then able to bring in their parents and family members. Government statistics show that once immigrants become citizens, these individuals bring as many as 30 to 45 relatives. The children's spouse could, in turn, start a new pyramid, beginning with their parents, the final results is one illegal immigrant granted amnesty could result in hundred of new immigrants.
You might think this is not such a horrible idea. It will not ruin the fabric of our culture. True. However, this is just the window dressing. Presently, around 70% of all foreign-born immigrants settle in six states. Four of these states are democratic strongholds leaving Texas and Florida as states the Democratic party are targeting with immigration amnesty. The influx of mutli-generational democratic voters to Florida and Texas would be enough to turn both states blue and give the Democratic party a secure footing on 61 electoral votes. The long-term outcome is for the radical socialist agenda to be pushed further and faster because the conservatives will simply not have the numbers to stop the Democratic party in national elections. Amnesty will lead to ultra-polarization of the Democratic party and widen the already cavernous split between Democrat and Republican.
