MASS IMMIGRATION DESTABILIZING AMERICA'S POLITICAL SYSTEM
By Frosty Wooldridge

If you vote as a democrat, you try to aid the poor in order to uplift them to a better life. If you vote as a republican, you call on citizens to take personal responsibility and accountability.
It’s been said that when you’re young, you vote democratic from your idealistic zeal because you possess a heart, but no brain. You want to help everybody with taxpayers’ money. When you’re older, if you vote republican, it means you lack a heart but you utilize your brain. You think citizens need to take personal responsibility for their lives.
Since 1965, our U.S. Government, led by forever Senator Teddy Kennedy, passed the Immigration Reform Act, which bumped annual immigration from 100,000 to 1.2 to 1.5 million annually from third world countries. As the U.S. filled up with poverty-prone citizens, President Lyndon Baines Johnson passed the Great Society Act that handed out welfare checks, housing, free lunches and food stamps like candy on Halloween to millions of new-comers. Our national debt exceeded $1.1 trillion by the end of his term.
Those Great Society welfare queens churned out babies faster than a Ford assembly line. Each new baby gave the ‘poor’ mother a car payment, new TV, fashionable clothing, dish washer and unlimited credit. One minority woman in Detroit, Michigan, where I worked in the 70s, 80s and 90s, pumped out 24 children with more than a dozen fathers. Her first three girls birthed their own babies by age 15. The woman and her children became the first wave of ‘cyclical welfare’ poverty in America. Score one for the idealistic zeal of democrats!
On the flip side, republicans found that big business loved mass immigration. Why? The incoming millions of obedient immigrants worked for minimum wage with no complaints. Immigration broke the labor unions in half! Soon after, illegal alien labor accelerated in the 1980s. A Reagan amnesty pushed by Senators Teddy Kennedy and John McCain in 1986 legalized 4.3 million illegals.
In the roaring 90s, illegals poured over the borders as high as three million annually according to Time Magazine: “Who left the door open” by Barlett and Steele, September 20, 2004. Who watched it without flinching? Republicans along with democrats!
Today, America faces another amnesty that will legalize in excess of 20 million illegal criminal aliens. Such an amnesty will alter and destabilize the entire political process for the United States of America.
“The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, or preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.” President Teddy Roosevelt
A short 40 years ago, Anglo-Saxons enjoyed 88 percent of the majority population. By 2042, Mexican nationals, the present minority originating from our southern border, will become the majority at 53 percent. (Source: PEW March 2008) By that time, America will have added over 100 million people that will be fighting for diminishing resources such as water, energy and food.
A CIVILIZATION AT RISK
"Adding to an already ambitious first-year legislative agenda," writes the Knoxville News-Sentinel (News-Topic, 4-26), President Barack Obama recently said that "comprehensive immigration legislation, including a plan to make legal status (path to citizenship) possible for an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, would be a priority in his first year in office."
Letter writer Tom Shuford of Lenoir, NC, said, “In this effort, President Obama is assured the strong support of the media, organized labor, business lobbies, ethnocentric pressure groups and the leadership of the U.S. Senate and House where he enjoys strong Democratic Party majorities.
“The political payoff could be spectacular. If Obama succeeds in pushing through an amnesty for 12-20 million illegal aliens, he will achieve permanent one-party (Democrat) control of the United States government --- as a newly legalized, mostly poor and minimally-educated population will partake heavily of government services, affirmative action, and array of other federal and state interventions. They will vote overwhelmingly Democratic. Nonetheless, "comprehensive immigration reform" poses large risks for the president.
“Speaking to the economic effects: in normal economic times, giving millions of illegal aliens permanent legal access to the U. S. job market would depress the wages and job opportunities of already underpaid, underemployed and/or unemployed American Citizens. Recessionary times magnify these effects. Moreover, a mass amnesty will strain public services, infrastructure, and the environment.”
Paul Krugman, liberal economist, Nobel Laureate, New York Times columnist, states the obvious, "Unfortunately, low-skill immigrants don't pay enough taxes to cover the cost of the benefits they receive."
“Beyond economics and quality of life concerns, the country is fracturing,” Shuford said. “Three decades of heavy, difficult-to-assimilate Third World immigration is fraying the social fabric. How does one put a price on loss of national cohesion? President Obama's "comprehensive immigration reform" agenda faces big hurdles for another reason. Amnesty-with-promises-of-future-enforcement has been tried. [Obviously failed!]
“In 1986, President Reagan signed bipartisan legislation billed as a "one-time only" amnesty for an estimated 1.5 million illegal aliens [actual number given amnesty: 4.3 million]. The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) included promises of fines for employers of illegal workers and promises of stepped-up border security.
“What happened? Washington delivered on the amnesty. An overwhelmed Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS)—under political pressure from Coongress—sped through and approved 4.3 million applications, many fraudulent. What about the employer sanctions? Over time they were forgotten.
“By 2008, 12-20 million additional illegal aliens had taken up residence in the United States. Rewarding illegal entry into the United States with a path to citizenship in 1986 increased illegal entry. Is there any reason to expect Obama's plan to reward illegal entry with a path to citizenship in 2009 will produce a different result?”
It won’t! Not taken into account with the current amnesty proposal: out of the next added 100 million people to the USA by 2035—a whopping 70 to 75 million will consist of third world poor. They will vote 99 percent democratic. They will kill the Republican Party, but in the process, they will bankrupt our already bankrupted country. Today, our national debt exceeds $10.3 trillion with 32.2 million Americans subsisting on food stamps and 15 million unemployed.
Does it make sense to continue legal mass immigration while giving amnesty to 20 million criminal aliens? Even a maudlin democrat or a brusque republican cannot be that stupid!
The only viable solution? A ten year moratorium on all immigration of any kind! We must enforce employment laws to stop illegal migration as well as initiate “attrition through enforcement.” Otherwise, the annual “Human Katrina” of 2.4 million immigrants will continue their onslaught into America from a line that grows by 77 million people worldwide annually.

Our civilization will not survive the consequences. I am astounded that few ‘see’ it let alone understand it, but their children will suffer horrid consequences in every sector of our civilization.
