Amnesty Train Pulling Into the House This Week

Source: OCRegister (H/T Cheree)

A bipartisan immigration bill set to be introduced in the House later this week includes a path to legalization for undocumented immigrants but would also require these residents to leave the United States and return legally before being eligible to change their status.

A draft summary of the bill, obtained late today by the Register, includes most of the basic elements in the comprehensive immigration bill that passed the Senate last year. But what will make or break this legislation will be the details.
Thank you, Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Luis Gutierrez (my own race-pandering-whore-D-IL), for your efforts to destroy this country.

I encourage you to click over and read the major provisions of the bill for yourself. A few that make me particularly skeptical snort derisively:

A legalization plan
Illegal immigrants who pay a fine and pass background checks would be eligible for a conditional status and could work and travel for six years. If during that time they learned English, stayed employed, had clean criminal records, paid fines and back taxes, the immigrants would be eligible for legal status.

Employer verification
Employers would have to verify that the people they hire are legally entitled to work in the U.S. The new system would eventually apply to all employees and all new hires and would be implemented in phases. Penalties would be increased for employers who don't comply with the verification system.
Talk (or, in this case, legislation) is cheap. Why in the world would anyone believe that these would be enforced? Those who are elected to represent us throw this language around like we have an iota of trust in them to do anything other than pass volumes of legislation that will not be enforced.

And the icing on the cake?

Border security

More border enforcement personnel would be hired and increased technology used to secure the U.S./Mexico border. A North American security perimeter would be established in coordination with Mexico.
Hmmmmm. Let's see. More Border Patrol officers to stop illegals coming across the border prosecute for stopping illegals coming across the border. But that's OK -- the Mexican government will be on the job, making sure that only Mexicans enter the country illegally. We can't have those pesky Guatemalans and El Salvadorians stealing the illegal Mexicans' stolen American jobs!
