Amnesty would be rife with problems
Those U.S. senators who lust to give amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens in our country just don't want you to know several proven truths.
First, there is no way that criminal record checks and application paperwork for that many can be handled without massive fraud.
Although amnesty would supposedly be reserved for those who had been present for three to five years, fraudulent document industries will flourish as they did during the 1986 amnesty making the residency requirement meaningless.
The 1986 amnesty "only" involved 3 million amnesties, and even that brought the Immigration and Naturalization Service to its knees. What do you think 10 million to 15 million or more would do? A new rush for the border will undoubtedly result in millions more new illegals likely resulting in two to three times the amnesties the politicians promise.
Don't assume that amnesties will or can be reserved for Mexicans or other Central and South Americans. Because of legal objections and political correctness, anyone who wants amnesty, be they Iraqi, Syrian, Libyan, Iranian, Nigerian or Polish, would surely be accorded amnesty. What better way for a terrorist to gain free access to our nation than to claim amnesty?
Any nation that lets illegal aliens marching in our streets determine its national immigration policy and law does not deserve to have national sovereignty. Have we already lost our national sovereignty and rights of U.S. citizenship? If the marching illegals win their way, we will never again be able to control our borders or our citizenship.
