Even Federal Employees Revolt Against Bush`s “SBI” Big Lie
Memo: Exclusive to Vdare.com]
The Bush Administration`s ongoing
public relations offensive for its
massive illegal alien non-deportation plan was
resurrected recently with the testimony of Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Michael Chertoff
Senate Judiciary Committee on October 18.
Now Secretary Chertoff is bringing
Border Initiative“ (SBI) propaganda push to a
new audience—his own DHS employees.
It`s not working.
Secretary Chertoff addressed the
DHS organization through a memorandum dated November 2,
peddling the Bush Administration`s Big Lie that a
"temporary worker program” would "help us
interior enforcement“ and "increase our
security.” A VDARE.com reader provided a copy of the
memo via e-mail on November 4. [PDF]
Chertoff`s DHS memorandum claims
that the SBI "is built on a foundation of border
security, interior enforcement, and a temporary worker
Chertoff pays lip service to "a
comprehensive view of immigration that aims for nothing
less than to gain
full control of our borders.“ He goes on to
mention the components of "border enforcement”
and "interior enforcement.” But then he delivers
Temporary Worker Program.” Astute readers will
now realize that the "Secure Border Initiative”
is nothing more than a smokescreen for selling this

last year, will help us strengthen interior enforcement.

the "better idea” about who is here will be
apparent only after the fact, when illegal aliens are
given legal status through employment authorization.]
Despite the "better idea” of
how many illegal aliens will be given legal status
through the "Temporary Worker Program”, the
federal government will still have no idea at all
how many illegal aliens have already invaded the
United States and remain at large.
Giving illegal aliens legal status
amnesty through work authorization and a de facto
non-deportation pass will do absolutely nothing
to "increase our security.” Another amnesty
will simply allow
non-immigrant visa violators and over-stayers—like
9/11 terrorist cadre—the opportunity to
gain legal status and remain in the United States to
pursue whatever hidden agenda they choose, including
“SBI” is the Bush
Administration`s Big Lie.
And not just the American public is
getting angry—so, based on the e-mail I receive, are
federal government employees.
insiders, they know with quiet desperation that
something had better be done to actually
deport illegal aliens and
criminal alien residents from these United States
before it`s too late. Another
massive amnesty of work authorization and
non-deportation is the last thing on their minds.
For example, I received this e-mail
from one of these VDARE.com readers after my last
article on Secretary Chertoff`s recent testimony.
11/2/05— "I retired from the Patrol
in 1994, after 26 years of service; all in the trenches,
none in management. For the record, it`s my personal
opinion that control of the border was lost in about
1972, and it`s been on a down-hill skid ever since that
time. I also think that it is the singularly most
serious problem facing this country today. Many times, I
have opined that only the
agents on the immediate line really give a damn
about I&NS enforcement.”

VDARE.com reader in the civil service gave some advice
reporting illegal aliens to the
Customs-dominated Immigration and Customs
Enforcement agency [ICE].

"Yes, yes, sad, I know. But what do
you expect when you have an agency dedicated to
immigration enforcement and merge it with a totally
unrelated agency spread out among financial crimes,
cyber crimes, child porn, etc? What become the
priorities? Whatever is `sexy` at the moment and
whatever generates money—not
mussing yourself up picking off the decidedly
un-sexy illegal aliens.
"Seriously, if you want to get an
illegal —particularly a criminal—arrested by ICE? Get
him arrested by any other agency.
"Call the cops and press charges if
they break the law—don`t blow it off, or change your
mind, or feel sorry for them. If an alien goes to
jail—local, county, etc.—there is a good chance the
alien will be encountered by an ICE agent, or the LESC
[Law Enforcement Service Center] will come across
them and put a `hold` on them, depending on the charge,
immigration status and immigration and criminal history.
Maybe not the first or second time, but eventually, if

So if the DHS` ICE division is not
necessarily in the business of arresting and detaining
run-of-the-mill un-"sexy" illegal aliens now,
what makes anyone think that "interior enforcement"
would change overnight because of the Bush
Administration`s SBI promises?
The danger in this latest
propaganda effort is that, if Congress believes the Big
Lie of SBI, then America may one day wake up with:

the civil service is in revolt against it.
