Do you think your Senators realize that, in the hundred years between our country's first Census in 1790 and 1890, the numerical level of that incredible flow of immigration from Europe that filled the Eastern Seaboard and spread out across the continent was - - - - - nearly 2 million immigrants per decade. The world had never quite seen a movement like that of masses of people fleeing a crowded continent and completely taking over another.
After two weeks of "markup," Senators have done little more than prove to the public that we critics have been right all along about what this immigration legislation would turn out to be. As amended, this bill virtually assures that Congress will be considering demands for the next amnesty in just a few years.
Many senators are doing everything possible to pretend there would be no price tag for making some 80 federal welfare programs plus all entitlements available to millions of mostly low-education, low-skill illegal aliens.The Senators have heard from lots of billionaires and special-interest lobbyists who stand to make money off the cheap-labor aspect of the amnesty.Now, each Senator needs to hear from thousands of taxpayers who say NO to subsidizing that "cheap" labor with $6.3 trillion of taxpayer funds.We hope citizens are making sure that their Senators' fax machines are full of m
If Congress passes the Senate Gang of Eight bill, it would be like re-creating ALL of the Top 20 cities in the United States, filling them entirely with foreign citizens and giving them lifetime work permits to compete with America's struggling workers -- and in just 10 years time.

Just how long was the Gang of Eight Senators in that back room pounding out the massive immigration bill they released today?Supposedly, it has been three months, but I'm wondering if they've been in that back room for five years and missed the fact that the country during that time lost millions of jobs and the top concerns of voters are putting Americans back to work in an improved economy.Nearly every section of the Gang Amnesty bill seems to add more foreign workers to compete with unemployed and underemployed Americans.
What happens to the few immigration lawbreakers who won't be offered work permits and legalization by the Gang of Eight's amnesty bill? The Associated Press and others are reporting that foreign citizens who unlawfully entered or overstayed a visa after Dec. 31, 2011, will not get the Gang's legalization. Others will also be excluded because of various behaviors past and present.
Everybody in Washington is looking to see the fall-out from the marathon TV gig by 2016 Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio. Did he convince the American people that he did not break his Senate campaign promise in 2010 that he would oppose amnesties for illegal aliens?
