    Bush Makes Desperate Attempt to Save Unpopular Plan

    Bush Makes Desperate Attempt to Save Unpopular Plan
    Granting Amnesty to Illegal Aliens

    November 28, 2005

    President Bush spoke this afternoon in Arizona, trying, once again, to sell the idea of a massive illegal alien amnesty and the admission of millions of additional foreign â‚“guestâ‚? workers as â‚“immigration reform.â‚? While the presidentâ‚„s address includes tougher-than-usual talk on border security and immigration enforcement, the administrationâ‚„s continuing actions over the past several months reveal he has no intention of carrying through on his promises to the American public. Immigration reform organizations are calling on the White House to follow the lead of members of Congress who have shown they are serious about getting immigration laws enforced, pointing in particular to the Hunter-Goode immigration reform bill introduced last week.

    Under the Bush proposal, the estimated 11 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S. would be reclassified as â‚“temporary workers,â‚? and be allowed to remain here for up to six years. In addition, the president and top members of his administration have repeatedly called for the unlimited admission of additional foreign workers in an effort to â‚“match willing workers in other countries with willing employers in this country,â‚? at whatever wages the employer wishes to pay.

    â‚“This administration has a sustained track record of ignoring reality when it conflicts with what the corporate interests want it to do,â‚? charged Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). â‚“The presidentâ‚„s plan is nothing more than a massive illegal alien amnesty on a six year time delay, while his temporary worker program which will be anything but temporary is the death knell for Americaâ‚„s middle class.â‚?

    Bowing to massive public pressure, the Bush administration is now talking about coupling amnesty and guest workers with a weak enforcement plan. The president and top administration officials have pledged enforcement at the border, the interior of the country and at the work site. â‚“Donâ‚„t read their lips, watch what they do,â‚? Stein responded. â‚“The Department of Labor is actively working with the Mexican government to protect illegal alien workers in this country. Peter Accolla, a DOL spokesman told the Associated Press earlier this month, â‚œItâ‚„s not the policy of the DOL to penalize and expose workersâ‚„ irrespective of their legal status in this country.

    â‚“Moreover, the administrationâ‚„s idea of workplace enforcement is based on voluntary self-enforcement by employers,â‚? Stein continued. â‚“A recent Department of Homeland Security fact sheet states, â‚œDHS will implement an employer self-compliance program that will link government and business in a united effort to reduce the employment of unauthorized aliens in specific industries.â‚„ Translation: The administration is placing the foxes in charge of the henhouse.

    â‚“Unless the president throws his support behind genuine immigration enforcement, such as H.R. 4313, Duncan Hunter and Virgil Goodeâ‚„s TRUE Enforcement Act, there is no reason to believe he is leveling with the American public,â‚? said Stein. â‚“The White House may have read some polls and reworked the presidentâ‚„s rhetoric, but the bottom line is that Mr. Bush is touting a plan that will be full of rewards for illegal aliens and employers, and full of empty promises for the American public.â‚?

    FAIR said the following three items should be administration priorities:

    1. Require employers to verify work eligibility and penalize non-compliance
    2. Integrate state-federal immigration law enforcement
    3. Cut overall levels of immigration

    â‚“Unless the American people see real, tangible immigration law enforcement in the interior, no one will believe there is a serious commitment from this president,â‚? said Stein.

    The American people may as well not waste their time looking for "real, tangible immigration law enforcement" because it ain't gonna happen, Cap'n. As usual, the President has spoken with a FORKED TONGUE. He changed the words a little but this plan is absolutely NO DIFFERENT than his ORIGINAL plan. It he doesn't sign The True Enforcement Act, he will be damned. But, Bush is not any more serious about immigration reform than he was 6 years ago. He has a SERIOUS HEARING PROBLEM. He just refuses to HEAR the American people who have spoken out loud and clear. It's, once again, HIS WAY OR THE HIGHWAY.

    WEll the big tip off of how little Bush cares about who comes into our country. Was who was with him. Chertoff and McCain. I am sure somewhere around there. Teddy was hanging out.

    You are so right, Scub. THAT was the giveaway. This man is NOT going to agree to the things that WE know will solve this problem. He is just NOT going to go against his FRIENDS IN BIG BUSINESS nor is he going to risk losing any Hispanic votes for his party.

    Your so right Bootsie. If Jorge Bush is going to continue to be hellbent on pushing his guest worker scam then he can not be taken seriously when it comes to enforcing our immigration laws. You took the words right out of my mouth. It's been 6 years and he's done nothing, why should I believe anything is going to change just because he gives more empty rhetoric than usual to border security and enforcement? He's not fooling anybody, he's pulling a scam and everyone knows it.

    Talking about deporting OTM's only while giving amnesty to all the Mexicans is nonsense. That's not enforcement. OTM's only make up like 20 percent of the illegal alien problem. That doesn't solve a thing. Bush's obsession with appeasing the cheap labor lobby and the Mexico first crowd is going to be the death knell of America.

    I think that not only is Bush's sham a crock, but it's also downright racist IMO. Why? Because Bush is sending the message that he will give perferential treatment to one race and one race only. He's saying it's ok to break the laws as long as your Mexican, but you better not break the laws if you are any other ethnicity. Bush's amnesty sham is a slap in the face to all Americans and legal immigrants of all races. This clown should be impeached for even thinking about this. This clueless idiot is a traitor and a sellout in every way.

    I just agreed with you on another thread but I'm agreeing AGAIN!!! This man is a LIAR and, if the American people haven't figured that out yet, they are dumber than I thought. AND, it absolutely INFURIATES ME that he is distinguishing between Mexicans and OTM's. THAT just goes BEYOND INSANE. An illegal is an ILLEGAL and I don't give a HOOT where they come from. They don't belong HERE. That just makes my BLOOD BOIL.

    blah bla blah

    Lip service and more lip service. big on talk small on action. I think it will take a grass roots revolution to get the point across. Empowering action one can take against our constitutional rights being trampled.

    I think we DO have a large grassroots organization on this issue and I do think it will make a difference.
