    Silent Amnesty by Marcus Epstein (more by this author) Posted 07/05/2007 ET Updated 07/05/2007 ET One of the Orwellian slogans promoted by the amnesty advocates lobby in the latest debate over immigration was that opponents of the Senate bill were supporting a “silent amnesty.” Their logic was that the illegals are here, no one is going to do anything about it, so unless you support whatever the President wants, you are advocating a “silent amnesty.” But that was an obvious strawman. The choice was not only between the status quo and the Bush-McKennedy amnesty bill. President Bush could enforce the...

    Wall Street Journal  Edit Page Leads GOP To Amnesty DebacleBy Steve Sailer Recently Richard Gephardt did exactly what I predicted he'd do a year ago—he formally introduced legislation calling and raising Bush's bid to give amnesty to just Mexican illegal aliens. The House Minority Leader wants to extend amnesty to illegals of all nations. Gephardt's absolutely predictable ploy has led the Wall Street Journal editorial board to lament (in "The GOP's Immigration Fumble: Gephardt Steals an Issue"), “… if Mr. Gephardt is successful the Democrats will have politically outmaneuvered the GOP on an issue that could hurt Republicans in November."Indeed.As you'll...

    House Appropriations Committee Defeats Section 245(i) and Ban on State/Local Police Cooperation with INS REP. SERRANO (D-NY) AMENDMENT TO MAKE SECTION 245(i) PERMANENTIn a stunning defeat for supporters of open borders and non-enforcement of laws against illegal immigration, the House Appropriations Committee last night defeated an effort to make Section 245(i) permanent. The effort was made as the full Appropriations Committee was marking up the fiscal year 2002 Supplemental Appropriation. As expected Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) offered his amendment to make this amnesty permanent. However, on a voice vote the committee approved a substitute for the Serrano amendment mirroring...

    Immigration legislation put on hold Measure would have allowed foreigners to stay in U.S. while applying for residency By Julia Malone WASHINGTON BUREAU Thursday, April 11, 2002 WASHINGTON -- An immigration measure to ease legalization for as many as 300,000 foreign residents that once seemed on track has been put on indefinite hold in the Senate, its supporters and opponents say. The provision would have allowed spouses of Americans and some other illegal immigrants to remain in the United States while they apply for permanent residency green cards. Under current law, foreigners must return to their home countries and wait...

    WASHINGTON - What does combating illegal immigration have to do with combating Middle Eastern terrorists in America? Well, duh. Let's review: Three of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers were illegal visa overstayers. Seven of the 19 obtained fraudulent I.D. cards with the help of illegal-alien day laborers in Virginia. Two of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers were illegal aliens. At least two bin Laden-linked bomb plotters attempted to cross illegally through our land borders. More than 115,000 people from Middle Eastern countries are here illegally. More than 1,000 of them were smuggled through Mexico by convicted global crime ringleader...

Bush is preparing once more to take up the matter with Mexican President Vicente Fox in Monterrey, Mexico, on March 22. James W. Ziglar, commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, for weeks has been insisting the issue is alive. 'Some believe that our migration talks with Mexico have been forgotten in the wake of September 11. I assure you that is not the case,' he told...

He says such a, shall we say, belated INS action is "inexcusable" and shows that our entire immigration service needs reform.</p>
