    IMMIGRATION REFORM CAUCUS CHAIR REACTS TO FLAKE-GUTIERREZ “

    IMMIGRATION REFORM CAUCUS CHAIR
    REACTS TO FLAKE-GUTIERREZ “AMNESTY” PROPOSAL

    (Washington D.C.)- Congressman Brian Bilbray (R-CA), Chairman of the Immigration Reform Caucus, issued the following statement today following the unveiling of an illegal immigration proposal introduced by Congressmen Flake and Gutierrez:

    “Unfortunately, the proposals introduced by Congressmen Flake and Gutierrez amount to nothing more than repeating the failed policies of the past. This bill sends the message that the 12 million illegal immigrants who are currently living in our country were justified in breaking our immigration laws.

    “Proponents of this bill say that illegal immigrants will have to wait, pay a monetary fine and “learn” English. That’s the same thing Congress said in 1986 when they passed an amnesty bill with the promise of securing the border and enforcing the law. Twenty-one years later, that promise has been broken and the problem has multiplied. The interior enforcement provisions of the ’86 amnesty were never implemented.

    “Under the Flake-Gutierrez bill, employer verification would have to be certified by the Department of Homeland Security before the “guest-worker” provisions can be enacted. The same department that has failed to implement the REAL ID Act and the U.S. VISIT program.

    “Employer enforcement must be more than a benchmark; it needs to be the centerpiece of our effort to address illegal immigration. The opportunity for employment is the driving force behind illegal immigration. The problem may be coming from the border, but it manifests itself beyond the border and in our communities.

    “The starting point for addressing illegal immigration should be something we all agree is a problem – which is illegal employment. We have a consensus so why don’t we work to address the things we do agree on first?

    “This bill will lead to another new wave of illegal immigration that will far exceed the effects of the ’86 Amnesty and we will be right back where we started with an even larger illegal immigrant population.”

    Dobbs had US Reps Bilbray (good guy) and Flake (bad guy) on this afternoon.

    Brian Bilbray held his own quite nicely and pointed out Flake-Gut bill is just another visit down the same old path of failed former amnesties.

    Flake looked and sounded irrelevant (to me).

    Bilbray needs to discuss more than amnesty...this bill is not about immigration except as a footnote! It's about our $$$ going to Mexico and it is about knowing that Hispanics in Congress do not have the USA as their first allegiance! This legislation is scary on so many levels...and informative as to what we are up against long term.
