If The DREAM Act Amnesty Passes, Is This Our America Anymore?


Buried in the Oct. 30
Washington Post
was a bland headline:


"Report Points to
Faster Recovery in Jobs for Immigrants."

[by

The story, however, contained
social dynamite that explains the rage of Americans who
are smeared as
nativists
and

xenophobes
for demanding a timeout on immigration.

In the April-May-June quarter,
foreign-born workers in the U.S. gained 656,000 jobs.
And native-born Americans lost 1.2 million.

From July 1, 2009, to June 30,
2010, foreign-born Hispanics gained 98,000 construction
jobs. Native-born Hispanics lost 133,000. Black and
white U.S. construction workers lost 511,000 jobs.

According to the Center for
Immigration Studies, from Jan. 1, 2000, to Jan. 1, 2010,
13.1 million immigrants, legal and illegal, entered the
United States, a decade in which America lost 1 million
jobs.

From 2008 and 2009, the figures are
startling. In 24 months, 2.4 million immigrants, legal
and illegal, arrived, as U.S. citizens were losing 8.6
million jobs.

Query: Why are we

importing a million-plus workers
a year when 17
million Americans can`t find work? Whose country is
this?


Why do we not declare a moratorium on all immigration
,
until our unemployment rate falls to 6 or 5 percent?
Charity begins at home. Ought we not take care of our
own jobless first before we invite in strangers to take
their jobs?

According to the

Pew Hispanic Center,
each year between 300,000 and
400,000 "anchor babies" are born to illegal aliens. These newborns are
entitled to

citizenship
,

free health care
and education, welfare and

food stamps

Their parents—almost all are

poor
or

working class
—rarely

pay any state or federal income tax.

How long can we keep granting
citizenship and full social welfare benefits to the
children of people who break our laws and break into our
country or overstay their visas? How long can we keep
bringing in workers to take jobs when our

unemployment
rate hovers around

10 percent?

Again, according to the Pew Center,
the number of anchor babies here now is about 4 million.
Add to that 3 million to 4 million born each decade, and
it will not be long before

Colorado, Nevada, Arizona and Texas
resemble
California, which is on the brink of default.

If no action is taken, the
Republican Party will soon be

unable
, even in

wave elections
, to win the presidency, as it won
nothing and indeed lost state legislative seats in
California in 2010.

The border will disappear, and
America will be
a
geographical expression
, not a country anymore.

Legal scholar William Quirk
describes a new phenomenon in the invasion of America:
"maternity
tourism."
Pregnant Asian women

pay $15,000
to agents to ensure they are in the
United States when their child is born so that they can
return home secure in the knowledge he or she will be a
U.S. citizen with the right to a U.S.-taxpayer
subsidized education in college.

Turkish Birth
Tourism in New York
,

Though the nation has awakened to
the threat to social cohesion and national solvency,
Harry Reid is

still attempting to ram through a lame-duck Senate

an amnesty for illegal aliens up to age 30 who claim
they were brought here before they were 16, have a high
school diploma or GED and state that they intend to go
to college within six years.

An estimated

2.1 million illegal aliens
would be amnestied, put
on a path to citizenship, and be eligible for student
loans and more.

According to Alabama`s

Jeff Sessions,
ranking Republican on the Senate
Judiciary Committee:

"Aliens granted amnesty by the DREAM Act will have the legal right to
petition for entry of their family members, including
their adult brothers and sisters and the parents who
illegally brought or sent them to the United States,
once they become naturalized U.S. citizens. In less than
a decade, this reality could easily double or triple the
2.1 million green cards that will be immediately
distributed as a result of the DREAM Act."

Lawbreaking would be rewarded.
Chain migration would continue. A permanent powerful
magnet would be provided to all foreigners to sneak into
the United States and be sure to bring the kids.

As Rep.

Dana Rohrabacher argues,
one effect of the DREAM Act
will be to move illegals applying to college ahead of
many Americans, as 80 percent of illegals are Hispanics
and eligible for affirmative action.

U.S. soldiers coming home from
Afghanistan will
"sit in back,"
as Obama puts it, when competing
against amnestied illegals.

Several days ago, UCLA`s Kent Wong
addressed a pro-amnesty rally in Los Angeles` MacArthur
Park. Wong turned the race card face up.

When Reid`s bill passes,

said Wong
,
"the young people of the DREAM Act movement will go on
to accomplish and do great things. … You will go on to
become lawyers, teachers, doctors and members of the
U.S. Congress to replace those old white men …."

If the DREAM Act passes, Wong is
right about whose time has come and gone. May the Tea
Party take names at the call of the roll.
