Illegal immigration: The missing components

It’s time to acknowledge that violating our laws reaps rewards

The supporters of amnesty for those who have entered our country illegally are once again attempting to shove this ill-conceived and costly notion down the throats of American citizens. And once again the impact and the numbers are underestimated. For the better part of a decade we have been fed a stagnate 10+ million.

Through his pre-election political posturing and executive orders, Barack Obama authorized “deferred action” for illegals up to the age of 30 — who allege they were brought here as children — allowing them to remain in the U.S. for two years, with indefinite renewals. They can also apply for work authorization, adding an estimated 2 million job-seekers to the workforce at a time of record unemployment. There is no possible way to refute their claims or enforce restrictions.

U.S.-born children of illegal aliens are not only eligible for instant citizenship, but are the key to sponsoring extended family members legally into the country once they turn 21, through the insidious practice of chain migration. As we have previously reported, a thriving industry known as birth tourism caters to pregnant women from China, the Middle East, and various other nations who want to ensure their children have U.S. citizenship.

The United States (along with Canada) is the remaining developed nation to grant automatic citizenship to children born within its borders, regardless of the parents’ status.

These nations repealed Birthright Citizenship in recent years:  Australia (2007), New Zealand (2005), Ireland (2005), France (1993), India (1987), Malta (1989), United Kingdom (1983), and Portugal (1981). Numbers USA has the complete list with notes and citations regarding birthright citizenship laws in the countries listed — along with those counties with and without these provisions.

In 2011, H.R.140, the Birthright Citizenship Bill — with 90 co-sponsors — was introduced in Congress. Its intent was to end the practice of granting automatic citizenship to all children born in the U.S., by amending the Immigration and Nationality Act, not the Constitution. 

The 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which rightly applied to American-born children of freed African-born slaves, was enacted in 1868 after the Civil War. Many legal scholars believe it has been misinterpreted.

The exact and brief wording of H.R. 140 can be read here. Upon being referred to the sub-committee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement, it appears to have died. Among the Republicans in the Arizona congressional delegation, just one name is missing: Jeff Flake.

You know the rest of the story.  He is now in the U.S. Senate, where he is part of the Gang of Eight pushing Shamnesty under the guise of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, with his new buddy John McCain.

We’ve been down this path before.  In 1986 Ronald Reagan signed what came to be known as the Simpson/Mazzoli Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA). It promised to be a one-time arrangement to fix “a broken immigration system,” by granting 3 to 5 million illegal aliens legal status. The bill included “employer sanctions” and “border security.”

Sound familiar?

The Center for Immigration Studies has this excellent article titled “Before Considering Another Amnesty, Look at IRCA’s Lessons” by David North. We highly recommend it to you.

    Every time they do this, they say it is the last time…..they lie.

    Do not believe their propaganda – Like Flake when during the campaign he was against amnesty… what??

    • American Patriot says:

      The aptly named Flake learned his deceptive techniques well from the Masters of Deceit, his endorsers McCain and Kyl. They all lied about their stance on illegal immigration in to get elected, and then reverted back to their long held positions.

      Actually, I blame the easily duped Republican voters who have repeatedly reinstalled these frauds in their lofty offices along the banks of the Potomac. Unless we reside under rocks, we all know who and what they are about. I’m a lifelong Republican, a Constitutional and platform conservative. I did not vote for McCain, Kyl or Flake. My votes went to JD Hayworth (against McCain), Jim Pederson (against Kyl), and Libertarian Marc Victor (against Flake). With Pederson and Victor we would have gotten the same exact treatment but it wouldn’t have stung so much. With JD, we would have gotten a true conservative.

      Want some harsh reminders of the pre-election lies?

      Señor Juan McAmnesty:

      Vile Jon Kyl:

      Jeff the Flake:

      Another accomplished liar as it suits his purposes:

      • State Committeeman says:

        We will continue to be played for fools as long as we allow it. Why vote for “Republicans” who lie to us and treat us with the same contempt as Dems do? I join you, American Patriot. These are difficult times made even worse by those in our own party who stab us in the back while telling us what they think we want to hear. All they care about is their upcoming election.

        I’ve had enough.

  2. Westnash says:

    The Republican’s have the majority in the House so there is no reason HR 140 cannot get passed, if the Republican’s get behind it. Has SRAZ come out in the Newspapers and with the reps in favor?

    • Dennis O'Brien says:

      There is valuable information contained in the SRAZ links. You should read them. Check out the one in the 6th paragraph “with 90 co-sponsors.’ They are all listed there.

      • Westnash says:

        Latest Major Action: 1/24/2011 Referred to House subcommittee. Status: Referred to the Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement.
        Looks like it is as dead as Kelsey’s nuts!

      • eubykdisop says:

        That’s just wishful thinking on your part, Westnash. The only thing which is dead is your effort to appear Conservative, LOL!

    • eubykdisop says:

      “Westnash says:
      January 29, 2013 at 10:35 am”

      “What has SRA done to contact the NATIONAL media and say that many Arizonan’s don’t agree with McCain?”

      “Seeing Red AZ says:

      “Since we’re at work, we’ve put you in charge, Westnash. Feel free to forward the link with this post to every media outlet you can think of — including print and electronic — locally and national.”

      “And don’t forget the numerous local newspapers round the state.”

      “Great suggestion.Thanks for stepping up!”

      You were put in charge of those sorts of things five days ago, Westnash. What have YOU done to contact the national media?

      • Westnash says:

        Cut n Paste Euby is happy to blame a poster but has a hard time contributing to the thread.

      • eubykdisop says:

        ROFL! Debunking Liberal internet trolls who repeat their tripe over and over again makes it a very easy time contributing to the thread!

  3. Westnash says:

    Why cannot the State of Arizona pass this and then refuse to issue a Birth Certificate to any illegal?

    • eubykdisop says:

      Why cannot Obama be a Conservative and secure the border and enforce immigration laws?

      Why cannot lead be made into gold?

      Why cannot Westnash oppose the ban on large capacity gun magazines?

      Like, heavy stuff, Westnash, LOL!

  4. CD9 says:

    Close our primaries, only allow Republican’s to vote for Republican’s. That will help us rid ourselves of McFlake.

    • eubykdisop says:

      That’s a good thought, CD9, but Liberal Democrats have been known to register Republican for the express purpose of voting in Republican primaries. “By any means necessary!” ;-)

      • CD9 says:

        I know Euby, I know. It’s very disheartening, or we can make this a Caucus state.

      • eubykdisop says:

        There’s a very, very long history of lack of election integrity. In the last twelve or so years, it’s been raised to an art form at the national level. Unless and until we can get a much greater degree of election integrity, elections are going to continue to be a farce completely unrelated to the “will of the people”. The problem is that both the Democrat and Republican “establishment” like it the way it is, LOL!

  5. LD 7 PC says:

    Republicans who screw our citizens over by rewarding lawbreakers need to be kicked out of office. That’s not a difficult concept. If enough of them are given the boot, it would make an impact.
    We have to inconvenience ourselves a bit and go to their events and hold their feet to the fire in public forums. Videotape their statements. Hold them accountable.

    • Justin says:

      Great idea!! We all need to get onboard with this. Those 6 year senate terms make accountability difficult.

  6. eubykdisop says:

    As concerned as we have been about immigration issues, Obama has come up with a new attack on American sovereignty which makes immigration issues pale into insignificance!

    “China poised to play debt card – for U.S. land”

    “Communist nation could control American soil as ‘development zones’ ”

    “The Obama administration, under the plan, would grant a financial guarantee as an inducement for China to convert U.S. debt into Chinese direct equity investment. China would take ownership of successful U.S. corporations, potentially profitable infrastructure projects and high-value U.S. real estate.”

    “U.S. For Sale: Obama Lets China Gobble Up U.S. Energy”

    “Oil And Politics: Beijing plays the debt card as the Obama administration quietly lets China acquire major ownership interests in oil and natural gas resources across the U.S. at the same time it blocks the Keystone pipeline.”

    “Reversing a Bush administration policy, the Obama administration is encouraging Beijing to acquire equity interests in U.S. energy. In 2005, the Bush administration blocked China on grounds of national security from buying California-based Unocal Corp. for $18.4 billion.”

    “That was then, and this is now.”

    • eubykdisop says:

      If there are any doubts about Obama’s intentions, he is also permitting the Russians to grab an interest in U. S. oil fields. Rosneft is majority owned by the Government of Russia:

      “Neftegaz Holding America Limited, an independent indirect subsidiary of Rosneft registered in Delaware, concluded separate agreements on the acquisition of a 30 percent equity in ExxonMobil’s share in the La Escalera Ranch project in the Delaware Basin in West Texas in the United States.”

      “Neftegaz Holding America Limited will also be given the right to acquire a 30 percent interest in 20 blocks held by ExxonMobil in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, one of the most oil and gas rich basins in the world. The ExxonMobil blocks are located in prospective areas of the Western part of the Gulf.”

  7. eubykdisop says:

    Sooner or later, hopefully sooner, we are going to wake up to the fact that we are no longer simply dealing with the old Liberal versus Conservative paradigm. With Obama, it’s a whole new ball game with much higher stakes. It’s “full speed ahead” with implementation of the “New World Order” which requires the dissolution of The United States of America.

    THAT is what is behind Obama’s immigration policies.

    THAT is what is behind Obama’s gun control agenda.

    THAT is what is behind the deliberate and calculated increase in U. S. debt and the subsequent selling of America to China, ostensibly to resolve that debt.

    Wake up, Folks! Get the big picture! Don’t get so focused on individual issues that you miss the overall Obama game plan!

    Here is some of Tailgunner Joe’s bluster before he was called out:

    • eubykdisop says:

      Thanks, Westnash! Nice to see a decorated combat veteran and staunch anti-Communist Republican U. S. Senator in action! :-)

    • Observer says:

      I have read your repeated and tiresome assaults on Joseph McCarthy. Over the years, I’ve made a point of reading about the post WWII years in which he became well known for his efforts to expose Communists, many of whom were within our own government and not unlike today with the entertainment industry being run by the left, so it was in those days. They were called Communists then and their aim was to destroy our government and way of life. In many ways, McCarthy was heroic in his stance. My liberal mother despised him. My very conservative father revered him.

      None of us are perfect. McCarthy was a Marine officer, a brilliant lawyer, and had been the youngest elected judge in Wisconsin before being elected a US Senator. Unfortunately, he was also an alcoholic. He died at a young age from the effects of alcohol. When he and his wife married, the huge guest register included notables from both political parties including Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, and John F. Kennedy. The more I’ve looked into both the times and the man Joseph McCarthy, the more I agree with my dad.

      • Westnash says:

        Well everyone has a right to their own opinion. There is a difference for respecting someone for service and conservative views as you do and those who worship at his alter, like some others. The record is pretty clear that his military record was mostly trumped up and he cost many innocent people their careers by unfounded charges. Communism is a failed ideology, but didn’t fail because of Joe.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Westnash, the only One whose altar I worship at is God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I have no other gods before Him.

        Secondly, there is no proof that the military record of Republican U. S. Sentor Joseph McCarthy was “trumped up”.

        In addition, the military has never seen fit to remove from Senator McCarthy the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross, despite all of the smears across more than half a century by the Liberal left.

        Communism has always been a failed “ideology”, nevertheless, it is STILL alive and well AND a real and present threat to the U. S..

        NO ONE has claimed that Communism is a failed ideology BECAUSE of Republican U. S. Senator Joseph McCarthy. What is factual is that Senator McCarthy outed Communists in the U. S. and in our federal government.

        Have we sufficiently debunked your attempts, yet once again, to distort, misrepresent and smear a decorated combat veteran and satunch anti-Communist Republican U. S. Senator or do you need your nose rubbed in the dirt some more?
