Bush Solves Illegal Immigration Problem! [Peter Brimelow] - 01/12/05

President Bush used three techniques to solve the illegal immivasion problem in his interview today reopening his immigration offensive, now that the election is safely over. ["Bush vows push on immigration," By Joseph Curl, Washington Times, January 12, 2005]

  • Define it away—call them "undocumented workers", the term favored by the Treason Lobby, ignoring their tax-eating dependents.

  • Minimize their numbers—Bush cited "8 million", the lower bound of the 8-12 million currently estimated by the Census Bureau, itself possibly a massive undercount.

  • Legalize them. (But we knew that already).

One interesting hint—Bush added:

"And if Congress is worried about logjams for certain countries' becoming citizens, they need to change that part of the law."

In other words, Bush also wants a huge increase in the rate at which immigrants—including the illegals he wants to amnesty—can enter the American political community.

Why have borders at all? Or nations?

With President Bush's plans for another huge amnesty for illegal aliens, an obvious major disagreement within the Republican majority is shaping up.

So some are testing constituent attitudes. Peter Gadiel, President of 9-11 Families for a Secure America, whose son was killed in the Twin Towers attack, advises me that Congressman Christopher Shays (R-CT) did a recent survey among his constituents to determine their attitude on treatment of illegal aliens. Not to the surprise of anyone who has followed our immigration invasion, his findings repeat many earlier polls :
