Defend Citizens & Environment from Amnesty Flood Bill
President Obama says he expects Congress to debate the Immigration "Reform" Bill in April, so he can sign it as soon as possible (AP 3/25/13). But hold everything. “Immigration Reform” is DC code for Amnesty!
Open Borders advocates hope for a quick vote so we will not have time to marshal effective opposition. As it looks now this Amnesty Flood Bill will:
--Amnesty and Give a Path to Citizenship (and Voting Rights!) to the 24 Million plus Illegal Aliens now in the U.S.A. AND to the Millions of their Immediate Families - truly an Amnesty Flood!
--Greatly increase the number of H(1)b and other skilled workers Visas despite 6 to 12% Unemployment of American workers in these fields.
--Dramatically increase the number of low-skilled workers admitted despite the fact that they will receive free (i.e., Taxpayer Funded!) medical care and public education and that 36% will likely be recipients of some welfare program, and despite the fact that the Real U.S. Unemployment Rate is 23% (Shadowstats).
--The Heritage Foundation found that 17.7 Million Illegal aliens were in the United States already in 2004. EACH Immigrant headed household generated a NET (i.e. after subtracting Taxes paid) Cost of $1.3 Million to taxpayers.
Thus the Total NET Cost to taxpayers was $3.9 Trillion! for the decade 2004 through 2013. We can expect at least that much cost going forward IF the "Reform" bill is Passed. States that have complied with Obamacare urging to expand their Medicaid rolls can expect even more monumental costs. to cover Illegal aliens.
Other Administration initiatives have further adverse consequences on budgets. The administration continues to pursue a "partnership" with the Mexican government to "raise awareness" about food stamps available to immigrants from that country.
When a top Senate Republican proposed cutting off funds for that program -- in the form of a recent amendment to a budget resolution -- Democrats on the Budget Committee shot it down.
Why are American Taxpayers forced to pay taxes to keep 1.23 Million legal non-citizens on the Food Stamp rolls?
We agree with Senator Sessions that the program
"'...aggressively undermines a core legal tenet of immigration policy: that those granted admission should be self-sufficient and contribute to the economic health of the nation.'
"According to a letter from Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the 'partnership' since 2004 has included roughly 91 meetings between U.S. and Mexico embassy and consulate staff; 29 health fair events; and 31 roundtable discussions, conferences and forums in 20 cities. [We know these are good parties because some of us have attended similar events. What an expensive scam!]
"The initiative is one of several the agency had 'to promote awareness of nutrition assistance among those who need benefits and meet all program requirements under current law,' said Vilsak.
But "Vilsak’s letter indicates that the number of legal, noncitizens participating in the program -- now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program -- has increased from 425,000 to 1.23 million between 2001 and 2010.
"Meanwhile, the USDA is planning to furlough Meat Inspectors for ostensible lack of funds!"
Programs that citizens want and need to maintain their health, are being sacrificed in favor of bringing in and supporting more aliens.
Americans Citizens are paying Sky High Food prices already and extending the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance program to more non-citizens increases demand for Food, unfairly raising costs paid by Americans in need in addition to its cost to taxpayers.
Moreover, the Environmental Cost in Crowding and Pollution resulting from Mass Immigration is incalculable.
Important to Repeat: For each person added to the U.S. population one Acre of Precious Farmland or Wildlife Habitat is converted to developed uses.
And in another blow to American Citizens, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla) recently
"...hired a top immigration lawyer in the closed-door effort to draft a new immigration bill. This lawyer earns his living by bringing foreign workers into the country on behalf of corporations and universities.
"The lawyer, Enrique Gonzalez, is a partner in the nation's largest immigration firm, whose future depends on the outcome of Gonzalez's closed-door work.
"Rubio hired Gonzalez in January, when he was a partner at the Coral Gables, Fla., office of Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen and Loewy.
"Gonzalez's LinkedIn profile describes his 'skills and expertise' as 'immigration law, H1-B, naturalization, citizenship appeals... [and] international law visas.'"

And Mr. Munro also reports that "some U.S. - based companies are discriminating against job-seeking American professionals....and instead hiring foreign guest workers."
