IMMIGRATION’S TWENTY POINTS OF REASON
On April 15, 2003, author and social activist Phyllis Schlafly presented the American public with 20 points of reason concerning our illegal migration crisis. Two years later, her penetrating questions remain unanswered by President Bush and our ineffectual Congress. By the hand of Bush, the greatest crisis facing this country grows worse by the day. Thousands of illegal aliens pour across our unguarded borders daily with diseases, criminal intent, drugs, anchor babies, terrorist plans and colonization of our country.
Schlafly’s questions deserve more exposure as Americans awaken to their country being cut in half as fast as a magician slices his ‘guest’ in half at a circus show. Only, in this case, we won’t be able to put our country back together again. You didn’t see Rome get back together after it was invaded, did you?
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor President George W. Bush's plan to give amnesty to undocumented aliens, putting people who violate our laws in line ahead of those who lawfully apply for entry?”
Zogby, Roper, Lou Dobbs and Pew polls show 80 to 90 percent of Americans do not want amnesty given to illegals. They want drastically reduced legal immigration as well as deportation of all illegals.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor the repeal of Massachusetts Democratic Senator Edward M. Kennedy's Diversity Visa Lottery, which admits 50,000 aliens per year, mostly from non-Western countries, including countries that sponsor terrorism?”
What is the point of importing people from terrorist sponsoring countries after 9/11? Ask Bush because he hasn’t stopped this practice and neither has the Congress.
Schlafly asked, “Should the U.S. State Department stop issuing visas in countries that sponsor terrorism?”
Guess what? After 3,000 innocent victims were killed in 9/11, our president and Congress continue issuing visas to people from terror sponsoring countries.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor closing our borders to undocumented aliens carrying contagious diseases and illegal drugs by whatever means necessary, including electronic fences and National Guard troops?”
Again, Bush shakes down gray haired ladies at airports while our borders remain open to anyone who wants to walk across 365 days a year. The border patrol catches one in four. The ones they do catch, they give a sack lunch and free transport back to the border. Of course, they try again!
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor requiring visual inspection of the contents of at least 50 percent of trucks entering the United States from Mexico and Canada, instead of the current one percent to two percent?”
Instead, Bush promotes giving Mexican truck drivers who can’t read, speak or write in English—free reign on our nation’s highways with defective trucks, uninspected cargo and carte blanc to smuggle whatever and wherever they want into our country. One in 100 shipments is inspected today.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor prohibiting the State Department from negotiating a planwith Mexico to give Social Security benefits to undocumented aliens?”
Instead, Bush offers $345 billion of our Social Security dollars to Mexicans who broke into our country, broke our work laws, worked off the books, cost $200 billion annually in lost American wages according to Harvard Professor Borjas and don’t pay $311 billion annually by avoiding IRS income tax payments.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor repealing the federal requirement that hospitals must give free medical care, including scarce organ transplants, to undocumented aliens, an unfunded mandate that is bankrupting many hospitals and increasing the price of medical care to U.S. citizens?”
Once again, 24 ER wards and hospitals bankrupted last year in California because they were forced to serve millions of non-paying illegal aliens. They suffered 300,000 anchor baby births and welfare funding. No wonder California suffers $38 billion in debt, collapsing schools and vanishing hospitals. What did Bush do about it? He encouraged more illegals by insulting us with, “They come to do the jobs that Americans won’t do.” Of course, Bush has never held a job in his privileged life so he wouldn’t know what jobs Americans won’t do.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor cutting off federal funding to state universities that give lower in-state tuition to undocumented aliens in violation of current federal law, or that refuse to cooperate with the foreign student tracking system?”
Instead, Bush has done nothing to stop this travesty to American students and taxpayers. It shows you HOW far out of touch he is with what’s happening in America.
Schlafly asked, “Will you vote to revoke the citizenship of naturalized citizens who betray their oath of U.S. citizenship by claiming dual citizenship with their native country?”
Instead, Bush and Fox work together to subvert American citizenship and expand illegal aliens’ rights in our country. They don’t have any ‘rights’ because they are not citizens.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor stopping the issuance of driver's licenses to undocumented aliens since many of the 9/11 hijackers boarded the fatal planes by showing their driver's licenses?”
Again, Bush refuses to carry out his oath of office. He is in violation of Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution. He has not stopped one single illegal alien from gaining a driver’s license in the 14 states who issue driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. What are these state leaders and this president thinking?
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor penalties for local public officials who refuse to cooperate with immigration officials in identifying undocumented aliens?”
Instead, dozens and dozens of cities support Special Order 40 as a sanctuary law which enables illegal aliens to remain in this country contrary to our federal immigration laws. Maine Governor Baldacci wrote an executive order to allow illegal aliens to roam untouched in that state. Colorado Governor Bill Owens endorsed a booklet showing illegal aliens how to avoid arrest and deportation, how to gain employment, how to access medical services and how to gain welfare services in his state—all in violation of federal laws.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor prohibiting government agencies from accepting foreign-issued identity cards, such as Mexico's matricula consular, as acceptable identification?”
Instead, Bush supports 46 Mexican consulates issuing the card in major cities across America. The card is SO fraudulent; it’s not accepted by banks in Mexico. Bush pushes the Free Trade Areas of the Americas, which will effectively destroy America as a sovereign nation. It means a flood of Third World refugees with diseases, illiteracy, drugs and crime will be free to cross into America.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor strict health screening of foreigners entering the United States in order to stop the extraordinary rise in cases of tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis B, intestinal parasites, Chagas' disease, West Nile virus and SARS?”
Unfortunately, Bush does not, has not, will not, in fact, refuses to protect our border with Mexico. He could do it with the sweep of his pen, but he refuses. Congress could do it, but won’t. They all dance to the corporate takeover of our country by sheer hunger for money and power by those at the top.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor stopping the racket of smuggling pregnant aliens into the United States so they can give birth to their babies in the United States, thereby making their children immediately eligible for citizenship and welfare?”
Bush has not lifted a finger in four years to stop the average of 300,000 anchor babies being birthed in our country annually by welfare seeking mothers from all over the world. It’s the biggest scam costing American citizens billions of dollars, shrinking our own household income, ripping our hospitals into bankruptcy and giving us a horde of dependent children on welfare rolls.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor a timeout on immigration and visas until the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has a functioning computer system to track aliens, not U.S. citizens, through smart identification cards?”
Over 80 percent of our American public screams for immigration control, but this president and this Congress dance, like Pinocchio, to corporate power, which dangles them and costs us.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor rescinding Bill Clinton's Executive Order 13166 requiring anyone who receives federal funds, such as doctors and hospitals, to provide their services in foreign languages?”
Who, in their right mind would destroy the cohesiveness of our single English language in favor of a polyglot Tower of Babel in our own country? Unfortunately, Clinton started it and Bush continues it. We all suffer from it. If you go to many American cities like LA, Chicago, NYC, Miami, San Francisco—you feel like you’re in a foreign land. Yet, Bush does nothing while we balkanize, separate and degenerate into a Third World mess.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor abolishing federal requirements to provide foreign-language ballots, since the ability to speak, read and write English is a requirement to become a naturalized U.S. citizen and only citizens are eligible to vote?”
Why is it that the majority of Americans want their English language preserved and that our language has served this country for 229 years, but Bush and Congress promote cultural and language wars, and separation of our country via incompatible languages?
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor a general policy of drawing a bright line of difference between U.S. citizens and aliens so that law-abiding U.S. citizens are not treated like potential terrorists or hijackers?”
In our own country, we don’t know who is a friendly and who is an illegal alien, terrorist or subversive. Over a dozen cities have more foreign born immigrants than American citizens.
Schlafly asked, “Do you favor a Republican Party policy of rejecting political contributions from individuals and corporations that hire undocumented aliens?”
Those corporations that hire illegals give the BIGGEST contributions to keep this president and Congress in power.
Finally, Schlafly asked, “Is the reason why questions about border security and immigration were omitted from the Republican survey because our leaders don't want to know the answers?”
If you answered “Yes!” to all Schlafly’s questions, you are in the majority of straight thinking, reasonable and loyal American citizens who want your country secured from this illegal invasion that numbers over 20 million. But 51 percent of us voted for Bush and this corporate bought-off Congress is back into power for four more years.
At the presidential debates, the moderator Bob Schieffer told Kerry and Bush that the single most numerous question asked by Americans was what would they do about border security and illegal immigration? Both men answered in a fog thicker than an Los Angeles smog alert.
In the meantime, this national
nightmare quickens. Americans suffer in every community and state
across the nation. It’s going to worsen unless you take action. We’ve
got a chance to save our country by replacing 33 senators and the
House of Representatives in 2006. Let’s vote in candidates who will
stop this invasion. We demand a 10 year moratorium on all immigration
and we want our borders secured. It’s going to take every single one
of us who cares about our cities, states, our country and the future
for our children.
