If Illegal Amnesty’s Border Security Fails… There Will be a Commission


Shown: A more useful commission

Don’t worry. Once we’ve legalized 12 million illegal aliens if for some unthinkable reason, Obama Inc. doesn’t get a handle on border security measures… there will be… a… commission.

That’s right. An honest go goodness commission with chairs and desks and water glasses and everything. Mickey Kaus was predicting all along that the only real border security measure would be a commission and he was proven right.

There is no border security in the amnesty. It’s just amnesty. And I wouldn’t count on the e-verify either. The employer verification in the ’86 amnesty went nowhere.

The only thing that the “conservatives” get out of this is, supposedly, that citizenship may be delayed long enough that the Republican senators backing this will have their chance to run for president without being torpedoed by 12 million undocumented Democrats.

And that’s a win for their careers. It’s not a win for conservatism.

It looks like the requirement that the Border Patrol catch 90% of illegal crossers… has turned out to be evanescent…

Of course, the 90% “trigger” was never a barrier to legalization–illegal immigrants will get that more or less immediately under the Gang bill, or maybe as soon as Department of Homeland Security comes up with a border “plan.” The supposed “trigger” would only be hurdle if these amnestied legalized immigrants subsequently sought “green card” status, which would in turn open the possibility of  citizenship. But it turns out even this half-fake lock-the-barn-door trigger doesn’t really trigger anything. If the DHS doesn’t meet the 90% goal, what happens? According to the NYT:

If, after five years, border officials have not reached the surveillance and enforcement goals, the bill establishes a border commission to advise the Department of Homeland Security on how to reach its goals, with additional financing of up to $2 billion.

A commission!

That’s a commission with 2 billion dollars. Which it can put forward to promoting food stamps and medical clinics in Mexico on the theory that this will make America less of a magnet.

The bottom line is that there is no border security. The border security depends on the willingness of Obama to secure the border. And that is the same man shipping fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and body armor to the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria. The same man who unilaterally rammed through a partial amnesty and who has every political reason for bringing in as many undocumented Democrats as he can.

You would have better luck putting a bulging wallet in your back pocket and walking around the rougher parts of Brooklyn, than of getting border security from Obama.

But when the border security doesn’t pan out, there will be a commission. Maybe by then a bunch of undocumented Democrats will even be on it.

    Immigration reform a La McCamnesty, and Goldi Locks Graham is a bad hoax on America.
    Obama's own SSN failed E-Verify, and he's still sitting in the white house with secret service protection. ICE, and the FBI have been notified a zillion times about Obama's being an undocumented alien, but nobody appears interested in questioning him…a ball less congress included!

    Look, if one is bent on channeling Saul; pleasing Karl; and placing Allah as supreme, then Obama Inc's trajectory makes perfect sense.
    So if an illegal invasion has to be added into the equation, well, that's the way it's gonna be – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/20/what-are-the-

    Neither side is doing this for American citizens . Both are doing it solely for political and personal gain.
    The crime,diseases ,job losses and huge entitlement costs to tax payers will crush what is left of the middle class.

    12 million people is more than the population of all but 6 of our states. The demographics of the US will be permanently and irrevocably changed. White people will become a minority and blacks will be displaced in minority status.Even though the government quantifies hispanic as a ethnicity they bypass the laws and count them as a racial class for entitlements.

    4% of these people work in the farm industry . 46% collect entitlements. 48% are obese.Over 2 million are known drug cartel members ,over 1 million are convicted criminals, less than 50% have a high school education .Unemployment in Mexico is 4.4%, they have socialized healthcare .They have an educational system,a growing GDP and democracy.

    They have NOTHING to contribute to this country . They are here to take money,jobs and property from American citizens .

    "12 million"?? Not hardly: “I’ve heard for 14 years that I’ve been in this organization – in the border patrol – that we have 12 million illegal aliens in the country,” Moran said. “Well, I don’t think that’s true because I know that there are hundreds of thousands getting past us every year, so there’s no way that number has remained static.” http://cnsnews.com/news/article/agency-insiders-c

    "…January 2005 Bear Stearns Report (using 2004 data) and the October 2007 CAPS Panel Study with 7 panelists that were divided on the numbers. In the Bear Stearns Report, Justich and Ng found the number of illegals in the U.S. to be "18 to 20 million or more". 2.5 years later, the CAPS Study panelists were divided; half of them found the number to be 20 million while the other half found the number to be 38 million–nearly double what the other panelists found. TIME Magazine's front-page report in September 2006 estimated the number of illegals who would successfully break into the U.S. that year at 3 million…"

    Ah the twilight years of the United States….

    Gang of Eight member, Senator Lindsey Graham claimed making illegal immigrants legal would be a net financial plus for the U.S.A. Right! The truth is with amnesty in place for 12-20 million unauthorized aliens, the costs over the next ten years of medicaid, social security, obamacare, medicare, and food stamps to American citizens would be 2-3 TRILLION DOLLARS. This price tag assumes the preposterous premise illegal immigration would finally end and there would be no more "adjustments" or new amnesties coming out of D.C.

    If the government hadn't site up a web site just for r illegals telling them the benefits that were available, How and where to get them maybe, just maybe, fewer would come. The government wants to use drones. Use therm to help the undermanned and under staffed border patrol.

    I must say Mr. Obama has taken an excellent decision my giving permission to those illegal aliens to become legal here is America. I think this is humanity. It's about backing up each other in critical time. US is one of the richest countries in the world and adopting more aliens US is nothing giving away rather than gaining. Thanks.
