De facto Amnesty and the Great Used Lawnmower Glut of 2013

Ted+Cruz+2012+Republican+National+Convention+8eS0uX0i0iplHow come every time Marco Rubio appears on television I have to remind myself he’s not Joe Biden? Which always makes me shiver, go YUCK and run for the shower.

Look, I’m tired of beating up on Marco Rubio, but he’s flimflamming us on immigration reform.

I have never bought into the Oh My God, we’re giving 11 million Mexicans de facto amnesty by not legalizing them! argument. Right, Marco, the nation is in imminent danger of the used-lawnmower market collapsing, if we don’t rectify this social evil now.

In the first place, Republicans should have never entered into discussions on immigration reform until they had a border bill. You’d think they would have learned after 40 years of buying into what is essentially a Democratic Party enrollment drive.

Secondly, Hispanic immigration is a smokescreen. Immigration reform must address immigration across the board, legal and illegal.

Mexican illegals are not to blame.

The government could solve a great deal of the Mexican immigration problem by creating a guest-worker program and easing border restrictions with Mexico. From there you simply declare a real war on drugs and start killing drug dealers who violate our borders.

Before we take on the legalization of 11 million Mexicans — thus satisfying the Democrats’ dearth of qualified gardeners — it would behoove us to address the millions of legal potential Muslim radicals from Iraq, Chechnya, Somalia and all points East the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations thought we just couldn’t live without.

Let’s not forget the Chinese, either. You know, they’re the guys who always score high on SATs, graduate in the top one percent, and either start up a dry cleaners or rush back to the China to hack our corporate and national secrets?

Ted Cruz is likely to lose this debate but you have to love the guy for his passion.

Breitbart via Drudge:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a national petition on Thursday to stop the Senate Gang of Eight’s amnesty bill and send Washington a “strong signal” of the grassroots opposition to the bill.

“This is urgent,” Cruz wrote in an e-mail to supporters. “We must stop this Gang of 8 immigration bill, which would give amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants with no guarantee of a secure border.”

“The Senate debate is in the final stages and we need to send Washington a strong signal of the overwhelming grassroots opposition to this amnesty bill from Americans across the country,” Cruz explained.

Cruz urged supporters to share the petition with friends and to “act now–without delay–to help us defeat amnesty and stand for legal immigration!” [Read more]

I hope Cruz is successful, but establishment Republicans are convinced amnesty will guarantee a larger block of the future Hispanic vote. Hey, it could work. Look at the splendid results they’ve achieved with black Americans by caving in on welfare and Medicare.

    The major complaint that I read regarding any immigration reform is “we need to secure the border first” and, of course, that should be done with or without immigration reform because it is the responsibility of the federal government to secure and protect our borders. What I rarely hear is “how can we pay for millions of new legalized immigrants”, most of which probably don’t even earn minimum wages. Approximately 50% of workers in this country don’t pay any federal income taxes, in fact, most of these workers are a net drain on the federal budget because they receive the EITC, food stamps, medicaid, and other welfare, and therefore the lower 50% is supported by the upper 50%. Guess which 50% the present illegal immigrants will fall into if suddenly legalized?

    Rubio’s comment that we need to pass immigration reform in order for the legalized immigrants to help pay for border security makes about as much sense as Obama’s explanation of Benghazi. I doubt that all the new taxes collected from the 11 million would even pay for a cattle guard.

    I completely agree with your recommendation for a guest worker program, a comprehensive one where the workers are registered, fingerprinted, photographed, DNA sampled, background checked and then issued a photo ID allowing them and immediate family to stay in the U.S. as long as they are employed. They are guest workers of the United States, nothing more. They can’t vote, collect welfare and their children born here are not automatic citizens. They work here, pay income taxes (not social security because they are not eligible for it) and then return home. They periodically report to a federal agency stating where they live, where they are employed and when they plan to leave. Even this would be a more liberal policy toward Mexicans than Mexico has toward U.S. immigrants moving there.
