False Alarms on Amnesty

Many people who claim that they support amnesty (by any other name is still the same) don't stop to consider the massive drain on our already fragile natural resources, i.e. H2O, productive farm land, clean air, the total environment, the facilities such as schools, hospitals, etc. When those go into ruinous conditions we will be a totally third world country, and by the looks of things, that is already happening in many areas. As elderly people that I have contact with have told me time and time again "they are glad that they are on their way out instead of their way in, and worry about their grandchildren etc.

Or, we could just sterilize all the illegals before deporting them, then bill Mexico for the costs! Sounds like a much better plan to me!

@nawlins: Apparently you revel in your own ignorance. OMB said that lawful citizens should self-sterilize to preserve resources, rather than trying to deny those resources from illegal aliens. My absurd comment was in response to his equally absurd statement - reductio ad absurdum.
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...
