Another illegal alien amnesty looms on the political
horizon. But as long as the Department of Homeland

Look no further than the staggeringly comprehensive
Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released
in March—IMMIGRATION BENEFITS: Additional Controls
and Sanctions Strategy Could Enhance DHS`s Ability to
Control Benefit Fraud (GAO-06-259) [PDF].
Treason Lobby and its handmaidens in the
Senate of the United States would rather have this
report seized and burned than allow it to ever see the
light of day in the mainstream media, which hasn`t
reported it at all.
But here at

So to review, here`s what the GAO wrote about the agency
that will be charged with passing out millions of

So now that another month has passed since the release
of the March 2006 report, it`s safe to say that things
are probably all still status quo at CIS.
Let`s face facts: the institutionalized pro-illegal
alien customer service elements of the
federal immigration bureaucracy aren`t going to go

The very existence of
several GAO reports exposing CIS as a
“customer-friendly” sham is something that
should have been shouted from the rooftops . . . rather
