Remember 9/11? Another Reason To Oppose The Bush Betrayal

The United States was attacked on
September 11, 2001 by

nineteen illegal aliens

The foreign nationals who murdered

2,775 people
in one day flouted existing immigration
laws by obtaining

entry documents
under false pretenses and
overstaying legally-issued

non-immigrant visas

By overstaying the time limits of
their visas, and not disclosing either their whereabouts
or the true purpose of their visits to the United
States, they became

removable illegal aliens
under the

Immigration and Nationality Act.

But now only two years after 9/11,
this very same motley type of

visa over-stayers
, truant foreign students and
lingering foreign “tourists” could be rewarded as
amnesty candidates under the Bush Administration`s
recent illegal alien amnesty proposal–the coming

Robert L. Bartley Memorial
Open Borders



Bush Administration
would give these illegal aliens
entry documents to

come and go as they please
across the border, and
also line them up with any

“willing employer”
ready to put them to work
regardless of their immigration status.

So given what happened on

why is the Bush Administration going in the
direction of less, not

immigration law enforcement?

A group called “9/11 Families
for a Secure America” (9-11
advocates the opposite route. Their
path to a secure America is crystal clear.

“Families who lost loved ones on September 11th
know that the federal government failed to live up to
its most basic obligation to its citizens – to protect
them from foreign attack.

“And we
know our government failed to maintain control of our
borders. The failure to keep out unauthorized aliens
led directly to the 9/11 attacks and the deaths of our
loved ones.”

The 9-11 FSA families and
supporters suggest some very specific ideas for

essential immigration reform

It won`t be a shock to
readers to learn that 9-11 FSA says nothing about
granting more entry documents to more illegal aliens, or
hiring more illegal aliens to fill more

American jobs
more often.

Simply put, the 9-11 FSA families
understand why their loved ones never made it home.

But while 9-11 FSA patiently waits
for the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon
the United States (also known as the

9-11 Commission
) to

finish its hearings
and make a final report, the
Bush Administration apparently wants to jump the gun and

give legal status
to potentially millions of illegal

Do President Bush and

Secretario Ridge
really care to read the 9-11 Commission`s
report before opening our borders more than ever before
. . . or was the 9/11 Commission just some sort of
charade in the first place?

Will anyone in government heed the
voices of the 9/11 Families before opening the legal and
illegal immigration floodgates even wider . . . or are

narrow interests
of the Hispanic Alliance for
Progress, the Association for the Advancement of Mexican
Americans, the Latino Coalition and LULAC just too
important to the

Bush Administration?

I fear that America and its 9/11
families already know the answer.
