False Alarms on Amnesty

In Chapman's pink-tinged, wacko-world, history never repeats itself, illegal aliens want to become US citizens, third world denizens do not produce large families they cannot support, the open US borders effectively stop illegal aliens, increasing taxpayer-funded, welfare programs do not attract poor immigrants, and everyone respects VISA expiration dates. My guess is that Chapman's vapid nonsense is published on Townhall to provide an image of the leftist "counterpoint."

Chapman is a libertarian and someone with a tad more knowledge of basic economics that a result of the "Amerikan Pulbic Skool Seistem Dat Teeches Childrun To Red An Writ" such as yourself and loadstar.

If Chapman is representative of "libertarians," then libertarians are scum, and judging by "quality" your posts, I'd say you are deserving of eachother.

If you, or he, had any inkling of basic economics, then you would recognize that the cost of illegal immigration and giving amnesty to ~11 million criminals far outweighs the benefit.

Actually, he is simply one of those "cheap" labor advocates.

A key problem is that ILLEGALS are only "cheap" because they are ILLEGAL...once they are legal and have to be paid like citizens, nobody would want to hire them! BUT, we would be stuck with them-- an enduring albatross of the low aptitude, dependent class.
To hear opponents tell it, you don't want to be standing along the U.S. border when an immigration reform bill becomes law. Millions of foreigners who were previously content in their native lands will hear about it, pack a bag and storm across the U.S. border, trampling anyone unlucky enough to be in the way.

The reason, we are told, is a change that Republicans have previously rejected but Democrats and Latino groups see as indispensable: a procedure for illegal immigrants to become legal residents and, eventually, citizens. Critics call it "amnesty" and say it will spur illegal immigration as surely as...
