Introducing immigration lawyer Arturo Corso of Gainesville Georgia
First in a series and part of my sooner-or-later book.
By any definition, Gainesville’s village thinker, Arturo Corso, is part of Georgia’s vast illegal alien lobby. A reminder: According to DHS, Georgia has more illegal aliens than Arizona, who are the stock in trade for immigration lawyers like Corso.
To get readers started on the character, intent and accuracy of Arturo Corso, let’s take a look back to 2011 when the Georgia General Assembly was considering the internationally media-covered HB 87, a bill that eventually became law and was designed to protect jobs, wages, benefits and services from the crimes of illegal empllyment and illegal immigration.
Corso testified before an all Democrat legislative hearing designed to collect exactly the nonsense testimony Corso and other anti-enforcement activists went on to offer. Corso’s testimony included the “Corso-Fact” that in the one million legal immigrants per year the U.S. takes in, there is no avenue for citizens of Mexico to enter the USA legally:
“There have been frequent calls to my law office. Once, every two weeks, a well-known, Anglo-American business owner of significant wealth calls me and asks me how they can go about legalizing their employees,” Corso said.
“The truth is, they really can’t. There is a great myth that there is a legal path to come to the U.S. There is no lawful path to come to the U.S. if you are a Mexican.”
Corso then went on to tell senators there was a 15-year backlog for Mexicans hoping to get enter the U.S. legally. (HERE)
Got that? There is no way for Mexicans to come to the U.S. legally, but the existing system has a backlog.
The truth is that in 2011 – and every year for a very long time – it was Mexico that was number one in sending us their citizens.
According to the 2011 statistics yearbook (Table 3, page 4) then provided by DHS, the same year that lawyer Corso claimed there was no way for Mexicans to legally immigrate, Mexico was not only the number one sending country, but it provided us with 143,446 Mexicans as legal immigrants. Nearly twice the number of nation number two. I know what you are thinking: What was nation number two? – Communist China – which has now switched order with Mexico and is number one in sending its poor to America.
When the illegal alien lobby says “the immigration system is broken” they mean it is broken because we still have borders and don’t officially allow everyone on the planet to migrate to the United States. Yet.
There is much more education on and exposure coming for Arturo Corso. Stay tuned…
