    Napolitano: Bill could spark new wave of illegal immigrants

    Napolitano: Bill could spark new wave of illegal immigrants

    The new immigration bill would only grant a pathway to citizenship to illegal immigrants who made it into the U.S. before 2012 — a date that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday should be widely publicized in order to stop a new wave of illegal border crossers.The 844-page bill, which negotiators released to the public early Wednesday, includes a long process for illegal immigrants to obtain citizenship, but would only apply to those in the U.S. by Dec. 31, 2011.

    Ms Napolitano said that date should serve to discourage those that might plan to try to cross the border now in order to take advantage.“It is very important to get that out,” she said, pointing to the last amnesty in 1986 as an example of the danger.

    “One of the things that happened after 1986 was there was a surge. We do not want that to happen again.”The 1986 amnesty applied to those who had been in the country by 1982 — a four-year gap. This year’s bill is more generous, holding out the chance for legal status to anyone who came more than 16 months ago.Already this year, ahead of Wednesday’s bill introduction, illegal immigration appeared to be up. The U.S. Border Patrol has apprehended 13 percent more people in the first half of fiscal year 2013 compared to 2012, and the apprehension
    rate is considered a surrogate measure for total illegal crossings.

    Sen. John McCain said both the promise of legalization and a reviving U.S. economy are the reasons for the jump, and he said the increase suggests Ms. Napolitano’s assertion that the border is more secure now than it ever has been.Ms. Napolitano countered that she isn’t sure what the reason is for the current surge in illegal immigration.

    She said it appears to be heavily concentrated in the southern tip of Texas, and she said her department is moving manpower and equipment there to try to halt it. She said the increase appears to be non-Mexican immigrants from further south in Latin America.

    Janet Napolitano is a complete idiot if she things that statement is going to deter illegal immigrants from coming to America. What Obama is doing and what these sellout Gang of 8 lawmakers are doing is causing illegal immigration to increase!

    No illegal alien is going to believe that they will be deported or thrown out considering what this legislation does.

    I understand from people in the "Valley" Rio Grand area Texas they are being over run since the immigration talks begun. Border patrol is adding more people for processing. The only thing this "comprehensive immigration bill" will do is further harm the economy of America. The Dem's want it in hope of turning Texas into a blue state,the GOP is stupid enough to believe they may get an additional 10 votes out of the bill, let me point out to them they "will" lose my vote as I'm beyond disgusted with the GOP leadership.
    I'm old with many opinions few solutions.
