Border Patrol Agents: Bush Plan A Trojan HorseTopics: Immigration and Border Issues
Here's another indication that the President's plan is a disaster in the making:
In a joint statement, members of the US Border Patrol, Local 2544, called President George W. Bush's border security and illegal immigration plan a Trojan Horse.And while we're on the subject of illegal aliens, Human Events offers a simple answer to that question the liberals and activists like to keep throwing out - what do you do with the 10-12 million lawbreakers that are already here:
"Every day that President Bush and the Senate hold real border security hostage to their misguided amnesty program, thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens continue to flood into the country. Make no mistake, most of them get by us. We are losing this war, and it's not even close. Contact your senators and congressmen now. Tell them to secure the border and tell them to reject amnesty programs (so called 'guest-worker')," said member agents.
The agents said that Bush and the US Senate don't "get it," but Republicans in the US House of Representatives "get it." The American people "get it."
Border Patrol agents point out the illegal immigration problem is a simple issue to solve: Shut the border down to illegal aliens crossing into the US, then begin "hammering" the greedy employers who hire them.
To recapitulate, strict worksite enforcement, status checks during traffic stops, and citizen involvement would create a milieu where life for illegal aliens would be incessantly difficult. In such a milieu, they would be compelled towards self-repatriation. After all, they came here to make money, and once that is no longer feasible, they will realize that returning home and waiting in line to come here legally is better than living here in incessant fear. And that is what we must create in them--incessant fear. Our leniency is what has emboldened them to protest in our streets.I don't know about you but every time I hear that we can't deport 12 million illegals, I can't help but ask myself, why not! Strict worksite enforcement, status checks during traffic stops, and citizen involvement would be a good begining.
