Enforcement Boom

The Washington Independent
reports that though the administration claims that it has been
focusing its enforcement efforts on employers instead of
immigrants, statistics of federal criminal prosecution shows
otherwise. "The result is that criminal prosecutions for
immigration violations now make up more than half (54%) of all
criminal cases brought by the federal government. In FY 2009, the
federal government prosecuted almost five times more immigration
cases than in 2002."

Reform Must Include Relief For Seasonal Employers

The H-2B Workforce Coalition believes that it is important for

program to supplement their year-round domestic work force during
peak seasons when too few American workers are available.

(b) Far Reaching Immigration Bill Introduced In The House

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D. Ill., introduced a bill last week to
reform the nation's broken immigration system.

(c) Principles For Immigration Reform

Our broken immigration system undermines core national interests
and must be reformed.

persecution or torture.

(a) Dear Editor:
Mr. Trivikram Krishnamurthy's letter (12/21/09 ID) is by and
large accurate insofar as it characterizes (and then disagrees
with) what I said. His letter overstates or over-interprets what
I said about the Visa Waiver program, however. My point is that
the Visa Waiver program measures the proportion of violators and
adjusts yearly. Social science data, such as English language
proficiency, intermarriage, or the more economic variables I
cited earlier can all be revisited yearly, or even more often.
One cannot read the New York Review of books or Commentary
without seeing them. The regular revisiting of whatever
characteristics is a very important difference between what I was
talking about and something like the Chinese Exclusion Act. As
for being biased against Mexicans, the present system whereby we
tolerate the creation of a semi-rights possessing helot class of
overwhelmingly mono-cultural illegal aliens is a classic recipe
for bi-culturalism, not multi-culturalism, and bi-culturalism
leads to very bad places more often than not. Western Europe
could use more immigrants that already speak an EU language or
two. Perhaps we could deport our illegal Mexicans there as a
humanitarian gesture. Our non-enforcement and general
impenetrability of our immigration laws engenders a certain
rational contempt for them, and it seems harsh to send them to a
home they worked so hard to leave.

  1. Brittancus's Avatar
    Once Health care is reformed or not, President Obama and the Democratic leaders intend to force on us into another Amnesty, or what they like to call IMMIGRATION REFORM at the beginning of 2010. THAT WHAT THEY CALLED THE 1986 IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL (ICRA) THAT WAS NEVER ENFORCED.

    The cost of immigration to our society is propagating through the years enormously The most recent estimate places the net cost of post-1969 immigrants at $61 billion in 2000 alone. That is $35 billion from legal immigrants and $26 billion from illegal immigrants) This is--AFTER--immigrants' contribution in taxes has been subtracted. As outrageous as the cost are now to the unsuspecting taxpayers, the rising tide of immigration will lift it even higher in years to come. Where now illegal immigrants poured into the country, faster than regular immigration numbers. In 2002, the annual net cost of immigration had risen to $66 billion, with no end in sight. A study from the National Bureau of Economic Research, based on the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation, analyzed the cost of immigrants based on their specific use of (means-tested) welfare entitlements (both direct and indirect), and revealed that the total immigrant receipt of benefits in 1996 came to $180 billion.That annual amount has to grown to out-of-control proportions, as the population of legal and illegal immigrants imported to one million new people a year. After these numbers were released, there seem to be an intentional reluctance to offer costs for both legal and illegal immigrant cost to the US taxpayer. Just last year the number of--LEGAL--immigrants ratcheted-up to 3.5 million. JOBLESS AMERICAN WORKERS NEED TO SPEAK OUT. WE NEED TO INSTALL E-VERIFY IN EVERY COMPANY THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES. IT WILL GUARANTEE THE REMOVAL OF EVERY UNAUTHORIZED WORKER, ACCEPT A LIMITED NUMBER OF PERSONS USING FAMILY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS AND OTHER DOCUMENTATION. SOME WILL GET A POSITIVE VERIFICATION, BUT NEW UPGRADES AND INNOVATIONS TO THE SYSTEM, WILL CATCH ILLEGAL FOREIGN LABOR IN THE FUTURE.

    Whereas the administration keeps imposing millions of poor, uneducated people into America, because of poor national enforcement of which the majority of foreign nationals become public charges. Just before Obama signs new Immigration reform, taxpayers better realize that there are expectations from millions of more destitute people just waiting to slip across our undermanned borders and past airport control If there was a time to call and harass your Senator or Representative at 202-224-3121, this really is the most urgent of times. Just your vote and voice can--HALT--this innocuous law becoming active. We cannot keep on accepting the world indigent, as it will lead to OVERPOPULATION as stated by the US Census Bureau. Just read the demographics and expenditures that will tax you even more. No more lies and read the facts and inferior enforcement grading at NUMBERSUSA. Understand the undisclosed corruption in Washington and different states at JUDICIAL WATCH.
