“AMNESTY ON STEROIDS”

That’s what the president of the National Border Patrol Council calls the Senate immigration bill. Sounds right to me.

Diana West dubs it the “Dissolve America Now bill:”

The bill’s crazy provisions for allowing 66 million new legal immigrants into the United States by 2026 (twice the population of Canada) aside, the Senate bill grants citizenship rights to 10 million to 20 million mainly Mexican illegal aliens who have sneaked into the country since the last U.S. amnesty for illegal aliens in 1986. It also waives any penalties for employers who have been illegally employing them. Such provisions only create conditions for ever greater, ever denser waves of new illegal immigration. This isn’t exactly what a rational being would call fixing the problem. And don’t even ask about the multi billion-dollar price tag on ballooning social services; the Senate hasn’t.

What we’re left with is not a nation, but a honey trap. If a body can just make it across the border, the Senate guarantees amnesty will always be the light at the end of the tunnel. And who knows? Maybe next time around, such as in 2026, the amnesty bill will be written in Spanish. After all, with 10 percent of Mexico already here, what’s to stop 20 or 40 or 60 percent of Mexico from following? Not a law. Not a fence. Certainly not a border. Who needs a border, anyway? This, I’m afraid, is the rhetorical question driving too many of our public servants to abdicate their duty.

More blood-boiling stuff over at The Immigration Blog, if you can take it this morning.
