Expect more amnesty talk Tuesday

By D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, January 19, 2007


"I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

- Presidential oath of office

"First, the United States must secure its borders. This is a basic responsibility of a sovereign nation."

President Bush , May 2006

In his State of the Union speech Tuesday, some of the topics that we can expect the leader of the American people to address will likely include global warming, spending, the war in Iraq, skyrocketing health care costs - and his sales presentation, again, for a "comprehensive" plan for a path to citizenship for illegal aliens.

His constant message on the issue is that awarding American citizenship as a punishment to deter future illegal immigration will somehow lead to American border security.

It makes you wonder doesn't it?

Having twice sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution, President Bush has spent a large part of the last five years telling Americans that there are millions of "jobs Americans will not do" - in hopes that we will eventually accept this as truth - and an excuse for his refusal to secure the homeland.

He will be pressing hard to make us believe that the response to the illegal immigration disaster in America is to transform the more than 20 million mostly Mexican illegal aliens into U.S. citizens.

This creates a question: If Americans will not do the jobs now being done by the illegals, who is going to do the same jobs once they become Americans?

It kind of makes you wonder.

It is of course, mindless and insulting nonsense to say that there are jobs American workers will not do if we are paid a living wage - but constantly advancing mindless nonsense has proven to be an effective tool for the open-borders lobby and we shouldn't expect its talking points to change anytime soon.

What is more interesting than what we will hear from the president is what we won't hear.

You probably won't hear the president point to any examples of wages having gone up in the United States as a result of illegal immigration.

You shouldn't expect him to boast about the necessity to "press one" to speak English on the telephone in Georgia.

I am guessing that we won't hear President Bush tell us about the Mexican government's newest effort to help its citizens get safely into the U.S illegally -by providing the illegal crossers with handheld satellite navigation devices.

The British Telegraph News quotes Jaime Obregon, the coordinator for the commission for migrants in Puebla, the Mexican state which will begin the project soon, as saying, "There are lots of people looking to cross and we are working with the U.S. authorities to make sure they do not die on the way."

I doubt that the president is going to mention the thousands of U.S. citizens who have been killed by illegal aliens while Mexico deports more people each year than we do.

Most of us who study illegal immigration would be very surprised to hear the American president talk about the June 2004 Social Security agreement with Mexico.

Called "Totalization," unless stopped by Congress, the intentionally unpublicized plan would eventually add millions of Mexicans - and their dependents who have worked in the U.S., false ID or not - to the American Social Security rolls.

It kind of makes you wonder what else you haven't heard about, doesn't it?

How about this one: According to the Heritage Foundation, the 2006 version of the path to citizenship that is "not amnesty-again" could have added almost 200 million more people to the U.S population in the next 20 years - more than 180 million more legal immigrants than current law permits.

The coming proposal for 2007 is said to be even more liberal.

Let's try not to think about the plan to make Interstate 75 some 36 lanes wide in Cobb or the expert warnings of a metro-area water shortage in the near future.

Another thing you won't hear the president say is that many members of the wealthy American elite who are really in charge are working furiously to eliminate the old-fashioned concept of borders entirely and create the free flow of goods, services - and people.

Looking back at the president's record on border security and immigration-law enforcement, it kind of makes you wonder if he really means what he does say, doesn't it?
