Re: Illegal Immigration concerning issues of such great import, i try to vision the complete picture rather than the pixel of any particular moment in time. so let me preface my comment by stating that my greatest concern regarding this bill, s1639, is not illegal immigration alone, but the national sovereignty of the united states of america. this bill is another piece of the puzzle that makes up the abomination of a north american union. now some may say that is just a conspiracy, but you can read the documents and other information coupled with your own research at spp.gov, stopspp.com (the previously undisclosed spp documents gained by human events' jerome corsi after filing a foia (freedom of information act) request), cfr.org (building a north american community). the republican tradition is rooted in conservative issues such as border security and enforcement of standing immigration law. president bush's policy is anything but republican much less conservative on a number of issues the least of which is border security and illegal immigration. bush, in 2005 signed an illegal document with the canadian prime minister and mexican president at baylor university in waco, texas called the security and prosperity partnership of north america accord. just another piece of the puzzle like nafta, cafta, ftaa, trans texas corridor, nafta superhighway and all other monstrosities emanating out of the cfr and internationalist think tanks ect. the eu, which is fifty years old, began much the same way out of trade agreements, only now emerging openly without any regard to the member nations. any way here is some of the failings of s1639 summed up by sen. sessions. Sen. Sessions Releases List of 20 Loopholes in the Senate Immigration Bill as regard to this bill specifically, congress tried to pass a weak bill that incompetently addressed the symptom of illegal immigrants present, rather than the root cause that is our porous borders and ports. it is quite simple. illegal immigrants by their nature break the law. the law was instituted for a very good reason, which has absolutely nothing to do with the ridiculous claims of racism or xenophobia. the issue above all other issues, secure the border first! then and only then, can a legitimate discussion take place concerning illegal immigrants already present in the u.s. if illegal immigrants want to better life, than enter the u.s. or any other nation of their choice legally, or bring about change in their home country through legislation, protest, civil disobedience ect. the state of mexico supports illegal immigration for a number of reasons, one likely being that it is a pressure release valve on their socioeconomically suppressed population. the people of mexico need to fight for their liberty and rights in mexico and not here in the united states.
