Another Stealth Amnesty

The amnesty campaign is in full swing, both an overt effort and now a covert effort on the right to give all illegal aliens in the U.S. status that will eventually lead to citizenship and a Demoncrat majority based on third world immigration. (h/t Consul-At-Arms) First the Schumer/Graham overt amnesty specifically designed to give citizenship to every illegal in the U.S. and end any subsequent enforcement of immigration laws through no-go zones for law enforcement. However the lying duplicity does not end there. There also is a covert amnesty program that is being pushed by the Beltway right; the Siegel Amnesty purposefully crafted to go under the radar by "compromise." The duplicity is giving illegal aliens "registration" in lieu of Legal Permanent Residency (LPR). While William Siegel does not give any details as to what "registration" is, it is abundently clear that it is a status equivalent to LPR; the right to work, greater access to welfare and most likely the right to travel in and out of the U.S.

The problems with this are legion, and not just those relating to the administration of the program that will cover 11-30 million persons, not counting any spouses or children living outside the U.S.

The first and most obvious problem is that once the illegals are legalized with "registration," what arguement will there to prohibit the illegals from being granted LPR status? None. They will be here, they will be working, they will be paying taxes, they will be on welfare. The illegals will be defacto Legal Permanent Residents. Without any doubt some liberal federal judge will see the obvious and grant LPR status based on some manufactured penumbra of the Constitution. Or any future Congress will just surrender and give up to their demands, saying that they are here and it is only "fair" that they get what they want. Or the Obama Regime will after "registration" allow those aliens registered to adjust to Legal Permanent Residency, claiming that "registration" is the legal equivalent to legal admission or parole and any alien legally present may adjust to LPR status if the Attorney General determines it is in the interests of the U.S. to do so.

There we have it, "registration" is just another RINO inside the beltway stealth amnesty. You heard it here first.

Great piece here, Federale.

I've been trying to decide just when Obama will pull the trigger on this whole amnesty legislation - will he wait until after the 2010 mid terms or do it this summer?

If you combine national healthcare, with amnesty and then throw in cap and trade, this country is done, it's toast - there is no way to climb out of that economic hole....ever.

He has to do it now. After 2010 there will be no chance with the likely Republican majority in the House. The question is whether he can get the RINOs on board. Gramnesty and McCain are already on board, so it is a good possibility.
