For Democrats Amnesty Is Election Victories

Amnesty should not be given to a non-citizen! Many illegals cause incredible harm to citizens, and cost America billions. Americans already are over $17 trillion in debt [U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time]

Even some Catholic bishops are all for immigration of illegals, and Latino amnesty. Originally, bishops for their amnesty said the border must first be secured. That forgotten fact is never mentioned in columns now when espousing illegal amnesty.

Harvard professor George Borjas determined illegals caused a 7.4 percent wage reduction for American workers. He also found immigration resulted in a wage loss of $402 billion for workers competing directly with illegals. Democrat adviser Gene Sperling noted three unemployed people for every job available. Financially illegals demand more money, meaning more Americans will suffer.

Andy Selepak, NewsWithViews, states there are currently about 240,000 illegal sex offenders in the United States. This numbing number, hardly discussed by media, was released in a study by Deborah Schurman-Kauflin of the Violent Crimes Institute. "It is clear," Schurman states: "that the U.S. public faces a dangerous threat from sex predators who cross the U.S. borders illegally."

The study investigated 1,500 cases of "serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides, and child molestations committed by illegal immigrants" between 1/99-4/06. Translated, 93 sex offenders and 12 serial sex offenders are illegally jumping the border every day. Schurman estimated 960,000 sex crimes were committed by illegals eight years ago. As thousands more illegals have since “jumped the fence,” that number has likely tripled. Schurman continues: "Only two percent of the offenders in this study have no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally."

Democrats know most Latinos favor increased government socialism, and have pushed amnesty for illegals to obtain the overwhelming nod in elections. Instead of an altruistic ideal, Democrats are only interested in a Democrat election win.

David Leonhardt, NYT, stated Latinos and Asians are very liberal. Immigration is a huge electoral bonanza for political reasons. In a 2007 National Journal interview, Rep. Barney Frank conceded immigration is “bad for blue-collars,” but believes it can help elect Democrats.

Not only do Hispanics negatively view capitalism, 55 percent, but for all issues Pew Research said immigrants favor liberal policies. There is simply no question immigration brings in voters who want more government.

On illegals Representative John Culberson, R/Tx, said: “The Democrats want them turned into voters.” In actuality, bishops never want to become political animals. If they understood the harm illegals cause America, they would never espouse amnesty. Illegal aliens should never be abused or subjugated. But neither should they receive amnesty, after being criminals. Millions of Latinos become citizens every year the correct and legal way.

Catholics simply don’t understand how amnesty increases Democrat grip in politics, and therefore additional abortions.

Rosemary LaBonte explained original immigration: “Back in 1900 there was a rush to get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country. They came from all areas of Europe to the United States. People had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home. They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.”

What’s happening now with current illegal “influx?”

Even the “to-be-voted-on” immigration bill pushes amnesty. The Top 5 shockers inside immigration bill contains unreported loopholes and exceptions, and huge gaps for millions of illegals that stormed through the border. This 1,900 page bill has extremely important unreported sections:

1) Loopholes mean amnesty before border security

2) Immigration bill shackles border agents

3) Illegals can obtain public benefits

4) Young illegals to receive expedited treatment

5) Immigration bill quietly opens U.S. to Afghans

Loophole #5 should be checked closely. The text of the immigration-reform bill contains a small section which triples the number of Afghans eligible for immigration to the U.S. under an asylum program. Somebody say enough with potential terrorists!

We now see Israel’s Netanyahu saying their new fence along the Israel-Egypt border has stemmed the tide of illegals. Every passing day “underscores how correct and how important the decision was to build the fence in the south,” per Netanyahu. The fence is equipped with special means protecting against the double threat of illegals and Sinai terrorism.

Since 1999 there have been nearly one million victims of rape, child molestation, sexual homicides, and rape and molestation of handicapped children by illegals in the U.S. It's not the "undocumented workers" who are the victims of our immigration policy. It’s the million Americans being raped at the hands of illegals who are the real victims.
