The United States was attacked on
September 11, 2001 by
nineteen illegal aliens.
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

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

A group called “9/11 Families

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

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