Is Amnesty Worth A National Bankruptcy?

Anyone with an IQ above that of a turnip should be able to realize that amnesty would only serve to attract millions more job-stealing illegals here. The ONLY way to stop the illegal alien invasion: MAKE THINGS AS TOUGH AS POSSIBLE on the illegals, so they will self-deport back to Mexico, etc. at their own expense because they get to hate it her so much. We certainly can't afford to deport over 20 million illegals. Plus most would only come right back if we tried.

When surveyed down in Mexico, over half of its 110 million still down there said that another amnesty in America would make it more likely that they would come on up also.

Surveys in California among current Hispanic ILLEGAL aliens showed that 70% cited our Big Guvment Freebies as a key reason they came here ILLEGALLY.

When Reagan got talked into a 1-time amnesty for 3 million, we ended up with as many as 20 million new ILLEGALS-- the pattern is CLEAR!

Those who do not learn from the mistakes of the past are condemned to relive/repeat them!

Could legalizing an estimated 11 million illegal aliens tip our precarious national finances into insolvency?

Could be. Robert Rector, who works on such problems at the Heritage Foundation stated, "Granting amnesty or legal status to illegals will generate costs in Medicare and Social Security alone of $2.5 trillion above any taxes paid in” (Daily Caller, January 31).

Two and a half trillion dollars? Yep. That's Trillion with a T!

So far most of the talk in Washington is about border security and preventing later amnesties. Thinking people in both parties better begin calculating the costs of this amnesty.
