Proving that Amnesties DON’T WORK.
Did Reagan’s Amnesty stem the tide of illegal immigrants?
Did Amnesty increase the tide of illegal immigrants?
Si Habla Espanol!
Its amazing how the left (who HATE Reagan) always love to trot him out whenever they agree with something he did, even though he once said it was one of his biggest mistakes... (they leave that part out)
The Reagan 1986 amnesty was supposed to be a one-time event, never to happen again. The proponents stressed that there would never be another amnesty and this would solve our illegal immigration problem. When you reward something, you get more of it.
I bet I know:
In the end, Hillary Rodham Clinton's California campaign was carried to victory by voters like Maria Hernandez of Boyle Heights, who cast her first vote for Bill Clinton and returned Tuesday to do the same for his wife.
Clinton's victory — a romp compared with some of the predictions just before election day — rested on the twin pillars of women and Latinos, groups that overlapped in the person of voters like Hernandez.
How the voting shook both parties CAMPAIGN '08: THE CALIFORNIA VOTE, Clinton tapped into the growing political clout of the state's Latinos. Endorsements were important. February 07, 2008
Way to go gipper!
Rubio and Mccain promise THIS time it will be different!
Instead, Amnesty proved there is a probable benefit to illegal entry, and illegals TRIPLED after Regan.
It's like rewarding your dog Spot for peeing on your leg and wondering why your neighbor's dog starts peeing on you too.
That’s a pretty common name - like John Smith. Are you sure this is the same Maria Hernandez?
What do you get when you reward bad behavior ..... ?
Si, es verdad.
I am sure the one in this yahoo article votes Democrat after getting amnesty. She talks like one ‘...hard working undocumented...”
And she's teaching kids too.
Besides how many Maria Hernandez's can there be in CA? HA-HA
“We need a `path to citizenship’!” Every Democrat in Congress and Juan McCain

In re-inventing the amnesty wheel, the Democrats (and McCain) can say that this dog has five legs or call a mule a horse—but that doesn’t make a tail a leg or a mule a horse.
Never mind the immigrants...
