GovExec.com, the government’s business news daily and the premier Web site for federal managers and executives, just yesterday published the article, Senate Group Close To Immigration Deal.

The Senate group, consisting mostly of Republicans (Mel Martinez (R-Fla), Johnny Isakson, (R-Ga), Jon Kyl (R-Ariz), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), John McCain (R-Ariz)) but that is also gaining support from Democratic Senators such as Ted Kennedy (D-MA), Robert Menendez (D-N.J), Ken Salazar (D-Colo), have agreed to issue Illegal Immigrants a new “Z Visa”, granting them legal rights to remain in the United States.

Huh? What the heck is a “Z Visa”? This, by any other name, is an Illegal Alien Amnesty.

The media will spin it this way and that…but by granting non-citizens the right to remain in this country, we are giving them an amnesty.

“But they do jobs Americans won’t do …”

Yes, but to our detriment – the jobs Illegals do are jobs that American teenagers and the poor working to better themselves have traditionally done. However, not being here legally, empolyers don’t follow wage laws when paying them, and pay them half wages of what they otherwise would pay an American.

What happens when Illegal Aliens are deported, and their jobs become available? Americans line up to take them!

“… and they pay taxes”.

Sure, they might. Even if they do, they’re still a net drain on our government, and therefore, taxes that American Citizens pay. The Heritage Foundation study, “The Fiscal Cost of Low-Skill Households to the U.S. Taxpayer” shows that the uneducated poor (this includes most Illegal Aliens) pay approximately $9000 in taxes, while consuming $32,000 in direct and indirect benefits from the government.

These benefits provide a safety net for American Citizens. The Liberal Establishment has ensured that these same benefits are fully available to Illegal Immigrants, Illegal Aliens, or whatever you want to call them.

“But we can’t just round them all up at once and send them home”

Right…to do this all at once is an absurd proposition. But this is not a reason to let them stay!!

Attrition through enforcement works, and is a true middle ground solution….simply enforce the laws we already have. When law enforcement finds Illegal Immigrants, they are apprehended, finger printed, photographed, and sent back to their home countries. If they’re caught here again, more severe penalties should be imposed, on the illegal immigrant and his/her home country.
What happens when Illegal Aliens are deported, and their jobs become available? Americans line up to take them!

Call your Senators…please ask them to oppose the upcoming Illegal Immigrant “Z Visa” Amnesty!
