A Reagan amnesty pushed by Senators Teddy Kennedy and John McCain in 1986 legalized 4.3 million illegals.

In the roaring 90s, illegals poured over the borders as high as three million annually according to Time Magazine: “Who left the door open” by Barlett and Steele, September 20, 2004. Who watched it without flinching? Republicans along with democrats!

Today, America faces another amnesty that will legalize in excess of 20,000 million illegal criminal aliens. Such an amnesty will alter and destabilize the entire political process for the United States of America.

****************

Letter writer Tom Shuford of Lenoir, NC, said, “In this effort, President Obama is assured the strong support of the media, organized labor, business lobbies, ethnocentric pressure groups and the leadership of the U.S. Senate and House where he enjoys strong Democratic Party majorities.

“The political payoff could be spectacular. If Obama succeeds in pushing through an amnesty for 12-20 million illegal aliens, he will achieve permanent one-party (Democrat) control of the United States government --- as a newly legalized, mostly poor and minimally-educated population will partake heavily of government services, affirmative action, and array of other federal and state interventions. They will vote overwhelmingly Democratic. Nonetheless, "comprehensive immigration reform" poses large risks for the president.

“Speaking to the economic effects: in normal economic times, giving millions of illegal aliens permanent legal access to the U. S. job market would depress the wages and job opportunities of already underpaid, underemployed and/or unemployed American Citizens. Recessionary times magnify these effects. Moreover, a mass amnesty will strain public services, infrastructure, and the environment.”

“The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, or preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.” President Teddy Roosevelt

Please don't twist my words to suit your needs. I will always have the utmost respect for those who stay in their own countries and try to make them a better place to live, as opposed to those who illegally invade another country and rape it for everything not nailed down.

That being said, I never said a word about people who wish to legally migrate to another country.

The only thing that changed are the words which you twisted to suit your needs and falsely attributed to me.
