“America is a nation built by immigrants and The American Legion recognizes and celebrates that,” said National Commander David K. Rehbein. “We do take strong issue, however, with illegal immigration. It’s a matter of national security. The 9/11 hijackers and three of the men who plotted to kill innocent Americans at Ft. Dix were perfect examples of terrorists exploiting our weak immigration laws and our lack of enforcement. This booklet is a good reminder that America has a serious problem that needs to be addressed.”

The booklet addresses topics such as overstays, crime, terrorism, education and the effects illegal aliens have on employment and wages. An electronic version of the 30-page booklet is available for download at www.legion.org/bulletins. (http://www.legion.org/bulletins. - broken link) Hard copies may be requested by calling (317) 630-1212 or mailing The American Legion, National Americanism Commission, 700 N. Pennsylvania Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204.

the Southern Law Poverty Center had a whole article in their "intelligence Report" which debunked a bunch of the myths the legion was publishing.

having no reliable sources of info or data is not reputtable.

Weren't the 9/11 hijackers here on visas?

I hate how they try to tie a link between illegals and terrorism. Terrorists don't need to come here illegally. Some are already here.

Several of the 9/11 hijackers had expired visas, thus they were in the US illegally at the time the hijackings occurred. (most sources seem to say 3 of them) I think that is what they are talking about.

Yes, and if Im not mistaken, a high percentage of illegal aliens are illegal due to expired visas. Many enter this country on a tourist visa expressly for that purpose. Its the key to the candy store.

Agreed. Just wanted to add The Southern Poverty Law Center is the equivalent of the ACLU, LaRaza, the "US" Chamber of Commerce and Wikipedia all rolled up into one big fat ball of bought and paid for illegal alien enablers and supporters.
