'America, Z Beautiful'Topics: Immigration and Border Issues
Mark Steyn has a question for members of the cohort of 12 - 20 million illegal aliens in our country: "Are you a fine upstanding member of the Undocumented-American community? That's to say, are you (if you'll forgive the expression) an illegal immigrant?"
And if you are a member of this disgraceful club of lawbreakers, who unlike those of us who entered America legally and whose families waited years to have the right to live in America, broke the country's laws to come here and then broke it's laws again by staying here, then Steyn's got great news for you!
Being illegal is now perfectly legal! Just for being one of the circa 12 million people who shouldn't be here, you can now be here indefinitely! If you were living and working in America illegally before January 1st 2007, you're now entitled to one of the new Z-1 "probationary" visas. And your parents and spouses are entitled to one of the new Z-2 visas, and your children to the new Z-3 visas.More ...
Don't worry, it's not an "amnesty". Every politician in America is opposed to amnesty - if not the concept, then at least the word. That's why the visa starts with the letter that's furthest away from the one "amnesty" begins with. "Z" stands for zellout ...no, hang on, zurrender or Zapatista, or some other word way up the other end of the alphabet from "amnesty". But the point is, at a stroke there will be no more illegal immigrants. Because being illegal means you're now legal.
Unless, of course, you came to America after January 1st 2007 and thus aren't covered by the zamnesty. But in that case why not apply for the Z-1 anyway? After all, you're here illegally so how would US Immigration know when you arrived?
