Gang of Eight loopholes put many illegal immigrants on fast track to citizenshipBy Stephen Frank on 04/28/2013 at California Political News and Views.The supposedly smart people putting together amnesty legislation for over eleven million illegal aliens either outsmarted them or is providing us with another disaster like Obamacare. In the rush to pass legislation, for the sake of passing legislation, they have given a loop hole for quick citizenship for illegal aliens.“A little-noticed exception in the Gang of Eight bill provides a fast track for many — possibly very many — currently illegal immigrants. Under a special provision for immigrants who have labored at least part-time in agriculture, that fast track could mean permanent residency in the U.S., and then citizenship, in half the time Rubio said. But not just for the immigrants themselves, but their spouses and children, too?A second provision in the legislation creates another fast track for illegal immigrants who came to the United States before they were 16 — the so-called Dreamers. The concept suggests youth, but the bill has no age limit for such immigrants — or their spouses and children — and despite claims that they must go to college or serve in the military to be eligible, there is an exception to that requirement as well.”Do you think the Amnesty Bill will do any good if it doesn't safeguard our borders, improve the process for legal immigration or address how our current system failed?
Me neither, so I will cut to the chase. I need you to help me tell Congress "NO AMNESTY!" You can't wait until tomorrow. Lawmakers are moving on this FAST. I sent mine this morning.

In a survey by Privacy & American Business seven million were identified represent an 81% rise over victims in 2001. And, incidents reported so far suggest a major rise. The victim’s level and upward trend parallel findings of a Gartner survey released. An earlier survey on ID theft (P&AB and Harris) found that a majority of Americans, 91%, do not see light at the end of the tunnel; they expect heavy ID theft incidents to increase rather than decrease in the near future. This survey also found that 49%, or 98 million adults, feel they do not know how to protect themselves against identity theft. While 62% of victims did not incur any out-of-pocket expenses, 38% did, representing 13-14 million Americans. 38% have paid approximately $3.8 billion, or an average of $1.5 billion per year. Based on actual amounts volunteered by respondents themselves, the average cost per victim for this time period is $740.
On Election Day, in order to vote, all the citizen would need do is show up at the polls, have their ID card and biometric scanned and matched and the controversy over voter fraud would fade away. One national ID card comprising of an American/ legal residents (green card information data as well) and all this in one compact card would deliver a death blow to illegal aliens stealing social security personal information, voter irregularities and a victim of credit card theft. Dr. Alan Westin stated, "It affects the rich and poor, high school to university graduates, men and women, young and old, Blacks, Whites, and Hispanics. And the crime is thriving in cities and suburbs, and in all regions of the nation," In terms of cost, a 2012 study conducted by the University of California, Berkeley concluded that the price tag of such a program would be around $22.6 billion to create and another $2.1 billion a year to operate. The Heritage Foundation in an earlier released report that another mass amnesty would cost the taxpayer $2.6 TRILLION dollars, so any politician who ignores this unspeakable sum needs to have their brain examined. That amount of money indicates financing not only the Comprehensive immigration reform, but everything from retirement and pensions. Then least we forget the funding forced oon every state to pay around $113 billion dollars annually.

THE GANG OF EIGHT IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL IS FULL OF EXEMPTIONS, WAIVERS FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS & EMPLOYERS?
The 844 page bill of the 2013 Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, known as the (Senate bill 744) has so many loopholes for illegal immigrants and employers, you could drive an AMTRAC train through it. There are so many exceptions to the rule and waivers, it will propel us into another recession or even worse, if it passes as-is? If the statement from the left, agriculture, the unions, the religious and faith groups, the massive business community, other special interest and of course the Department of Commerce have their way, the doors to illegal aliens will never stay closed. It’s like we owe the rest of the world a living, especially free health care as this is happening under the present circumstances. All the taxpayers get is paying for it all, after the emergency rooms cannot accommodate the fees it’s shifted onto the people. All you have to do is to climb the porous single line fence, (where it actually exists) step of a plane (neither entries are tracked) and you are more or less home free. Then whereas the American people must –pay as they go for services—illegal aliens and visa overstays pay absolutely NOTHING! Without a true double layer fencing as an obstacle to the poor from South of our border or from Central America, they will breech our enforcement.
THE ONLY WAY TO SIGNIFICANTLY HALT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF A MANDATORY BIOMETRIC ID CARD. IT USED TO BE THAT JUST A DRIVERS LICENSE FOR ID AND EVEN A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD WAS SUFFICIENT, BUT IN THE LAST 27 YEARS THAT IS NO LONGER THE CASE. BOTH DOCUMENTS HAVE BEEN COMPROMISED? SINCE 1986 MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HAVE FLOCKED HERE, AND VERY LITTLE MEANS FOR THE AUTHORITIES TO SEEK THEM OUT? THE IDENTITY CARD ISSUED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD ELIMINATE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM BEING HIRED, AND OTHER USES WOULD INCLUDE STOPPING VOTER FRAUD AND THE TERRIBLE ANXIETY OF CREDIT THEFT.
An inkling of the savings in the billions of dollars would come from federal and state court proceedings on credit theft. Even Obama has called for a “fraud-resistant, tamper-resistant Social Security card” and the White House has drafted legislation that would make undocumented immigrants provide biometric information as part of the qualification for obtaining legal status.

U.S.DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE WAS HESITANT, IN RELEASING DATA ON ILLEGAL FOREIGNERS GETTING FOOD STAMPS?
Judicial Watch, a leading legal Conservative organization has just uncovered a concealed program, run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Using the Freedom of Information Act, the USDA, although hesitant to comply released a documents that the U.S. government has been complicit in since 2006. They were spending taxpayer money to run Spanish-language television ads encouraging illegal immigrants to apply for government-financed food stamps. a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions questioned the Obama administration’s partnership with Mexican consulates to encourage foreign nationals, migrant workers and non-citizen immigrants to apply for food stamps and other USDA administered welfare benefits. Sessions wrote, “It defies rational thinking, for the United States – now dangerously near $17 trillion in debt – to partner with foreign governments to help us place more foreign nationals on American welfare and it is contrary to good immigration policy in the United States.”

The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch in August 2012, include the following:• March 30, 2012 – The USDA seeks approval of the Mexican Embassy in drafting a letter addressed to consulates throughout the United States designed to encourage Mexican embassy staffers to enroll in a webinar learn how to promote increased enrollment among “the needy families that the consulates serve.”• • August 1, 2011 – The USDA FNS initiates contact with the Mexican Embassy in New York to implement programs already underway in DC and Philadelphia for maximizing participation among Mexican citizens. The Mexican Embassy responds that the Consul General is eager to strengthen his ties to the USDA, with specific interest in promoting the food stamp program.• • February 25, 2011 – The USDA and the Mexican Consulate exchange ideas about getting the First Ladies of Mexico and United States to visit a school for purposes of creating a photo opportunity that would promote free school lunches for low-income students in a predominantly Hispanic school. Though a notation in the margin of the email claims that the photo op never took place, UPI reported that it actually did.• • March 3, 2010 – A flyer advertises a webinar to teach Hispanic-focused nonprofits how to get reimbursed by the USDA for serving free lunch over the summer. The course, funded by American taxpayers, is advertised as being “free for all participants.”• • February 9 , 2010 – USDA informs the Mexican Embassy that, based on an agreement reached between the State Department and the Immigration & Naturalization Service (now ICE), the Women, Infants & Children (WIC) food voucher program does not violate immigration laws prohibiting immigrants from becoming a “public charge.”
The documents obtained by Judicial Watch show that USDA officials are working closely with their counterparts at the Mexican Embassy to widely broaden the SNAP program in the Mexican immigrant community, with no effort to restrict aid to, identify, or apprehend illegal immigrants who may be on the food stamp rolls. In an email to Borjon Lopez-Coterilla and Jose Vincente of the Mexican Embassy, dated January 26, 2012, Yibo Wood of the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) sympathized with the plight of illegal aliens applying for food stamps, saying, “FNS understands that mixed status households may be particularly vulnerable. Many of these households contain a non-citizen parent and a citizen child.”
So it illustrates that a silent conspiracy has been going on for years, using taxpayers money funneled from the U.S. government to illegal aliens whether in the United States or not? To me and the millions of Americans without this is a incredulous traitorous move, that defies logic. This is a seditious secret activity and Americans who are being taxed to serve the interests of a corrupt foreign country need to be held accountable.
We need a National ID biometric card to stop illegal aliens through fraud collecting food stamps and other welfare programs. To me this would be more effective than E-Verify and businesses that don’t comply with the law should receive a mandatory prison sentence.
Americans must demand the double layer fencing that stretches completely from East to West, with skin tearing barbed wire attired at the top. Known as the 2006 Secure Act, this fence was underhandedly deconstructed by Senator Kay bailey Hutchinson.
No more civil misdemeanor for entering America without inspection, but instead should be facing a mandatory FELONY conviction.

The BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP must be changed, so only children of U.S. citizens ARE entitled to citizenship. Forget the USDA stealth program, offering food stamps to just about everybody including illegal people who arrive here by plane and disappear without being tracked, or the millions who cross the international border and also vanish. Giving automatic citizenship to the progeny of thousands of “foothold” babies is drowning America in hundreds of billions of dollars in debt. What the Liberal Democrats don’t tell you about this important issue, is the citizenship clause was to award citizenship to slaves, not foreigners babies. The sad truth is a family with 3 babies of illegal immigrants gets the food stamps, which other in the family circle share, plus cash payments and government housing. The government mask the foreign nationals as low income.Everyone these four issues if implemented into the Opportunity andImmigration Modernization Act would be a massive financial boon for theshrinking dollars deficits, in the state or federalfunds as well as the U.S. Taxpayer. CONTACT YOUR TWO U.S. SENATORS TODAY and urge them to opposeS.744! You can call the Capitol Terminal board toll-free at 1-888-978-3094.Learn more about this new potential Immigration Reform Bill, in relation to thehuge fraudulent 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act at NumbersUSA.com aswell in petitioning your arguments and standing on this new law. INSIST NO PATHTO CITIZENSHIP? A free petition is available on NumbersUSA.com and read the huge amounts of daily information disclosed on American Patrol.com/ This is the articles, blogs and media reports that is a must read. Learn so much more about illegal immigration bills at Judicial Watch.org/ As I have said many times before, I see no problem for an increase for extra visas for STEM workers, PhDs and cream of the crop—so to speak, as long as there is a serious effort, to locate the same highly skilled workers already here. But before anything as extra visas, AGjobs are available, we must have a tracking system, so they can be detained if they abscond from a farm or other labor that supposedly Americans will not do. However, none of these new complex reforms can happen, until we are assured that a real fence is constructed and the above mentioned policies?
There should be no rushing in revisiting immigration policies, as the 1986 opened up huge loopholes and allowed millions of none qualifying illegal aliens to gain legal status. We are feeling these consequences some 27 years later, through an epidemic of FAMILY CHAIN MIGRATION, leading to the DREAM ACT and the problem of the potential of 11 to 25 million illegal aliens having settled here, paying no taxes, but still collecting hundreds of billions of dollars in free education for their children, health care in emergency rooms and a almost bottomless pit of incredible financial assistance including cash payments for every infant and food stamps. The critics are right that the parents are not entitled to federal or state benefits, but the de facto citizenship of illegal alien children are, and states are bleeding huge amounts of money, especially in the border state?
Whatever it costs to seal our borders, give ICE and HOMELAND SECURITY the tools they need to fight the growing plague. By paying now no matter the cost will save hundreds of billions annually into the future. The only reason its so expensive to these senile idiots in Washington, is that it doesn't conform to the demands of the special interests and all the corporations, otherwise discount labor would have already been severed? You will find a petition at NumbersUSA to stop this sham of the illegal alien invasion. Read more about the undeveloped border fence at AmericanPatrol and the astonishing sensor called the“Sonic Barrier” that is far advanced to the regular units they have on the border. AmericanPatrol can also illustrate to you the incompetence and intentional ignorance of the risks at the border, plus daily news and views that the Liberal press is keeping masked? Here is a few websites for petitions against illegal immigration, news and reports not seen within the pages of the left wing press. NumbersUSA carries much intelligence on specific laws, with American Patrol showing ample evidence of an extremely weak border and ineffectual control at ports of entry, including airline terminals. CALL YOUR TWO U.S. SENATORS TODAY and urge them to oppose S.744! You can call the Capitol Switchboard toll-free at 1-888-978-3094.
There is daily news also to be found here, at American Patrol and all the happenings in Washington. Corruption and abuse of all our laws, pending immigration bills and abuses in congress is available at Judicial Watch.
April 23, the daily American Patrol publicizes the outreach media articles, which usually remain concealed, but located here all in one place.
1. Blind Eye: Conciliatory FBI policies toward Islamic hampered probe into Boston bombers.2. Spokesman for RINO Rubio compares plight of illegals to slavery. 3.

ARIZONA AND OTHER BORDER STATES, MUST PAY OUT ONE OF THE LARGEST PROPORTION OF TAXES, TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT ILLEGAL ALIENS?
CAN WE TRUST CONGRESS AFTER THE 1986 IMMIGRATION AMNESTY CHAOS?
Unlike other countries that pursue immigration, they are not fetching into that nation people who are going to leech of the rest of the taxpayers. Obviously everybody sees a calling for the highly skilled, the PhDs, scientists, engineers and many other highly educated workers and specific regulations to expedited visas. But people with no education, unskilled and who are able to sponsor old folks will add to our own seemingly endless lines of American citizens in poverty. If its so deemed we must bring across the border Guest workers for farms, agriculture, meat packing, it must be regulated properly, not the haphazard system we have today. That the owners of farms, cattle and other business must pay a living wage, and not unload the injured charges in emergency rooms and expect the hospitals and eventually the taxpayers to pay all the bills.
Without a biometric ID card the whole revision of Immigration laws is still going to fall on the taxpayers. Even the spotlight on the E-Verify system has its real flaws, that mandatory execution of this electronic program, doesn't take complete effect for 6 years. Thats ridiculous and must be in force by the first year of any new Immigration reform. Any Comprehensive Immigration Reform should only be put in motion, only when the Southern border is fully enforced. Not just more agents, but with double layered fencing complete with razor wire, designated as the original (2006 SECURE FENCE ACT) covering all federal lands, Indian reservations and private lands. There was a Theodore Roosevelt easement law passed in 1907 that gave federal authority to a 60-foot strip along the international boundary with Mexico for the United States to maintain the area free from obstructions as a protection against the smuggling of goods between the United States and Mexico. In effect, the easement provided the federal government with a 60-foot border right-of-way on which it could build the fence. So why is Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano forever making excuses about building the REAL 2 Layer fences?
I still believe that any new immigration bill should contain an amendment to BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP, that only the babies of already U.S. citizens should be able to claim that right. Just by skirting the U.S. border Patrol, or Immigration and Customs Services (ICE) at airline arrival or shipping entry ports, smuggling the unborn into the country should not be tolerated and certainly not allow the unknown numbers of progeny a right to citizenship. There was a reason for this, according to the law that after the Civil War the descendants of slaves could gain citizenship.

We must rethink immigration and stop the poverty of other countries proliferating here, adding to our own demographic areas of impoverished people. To be effective like so many other nations, THE PEOPLE must demand from Congress a National ID card. A free biometric card no matter the cost must be issued? Without showing proof of citizenship or legal residents, illegal immigrants will not be able to seek work? Employers, who overlook this eligibility in hiring, should be prosecuted with loss of business licenses, pay heavy fines and mandatory prison time. The ID biometric card also has addition uses, including the right to vote, buy auto insurance, a weapon for home protection and of course necessary picture ID for credit. Daily--thousands of ordinary Americans have their personal ID stolen and thieves use this intelligence to steal from banks and wreck the person’s good name and assets.
This is a commonsense solution that should be mandatory as the Social Security number has been compromised, and only specialized companies who profit in supervising peoples credit reports. There is so much more involved with the statistics of illegal immigration, so rather than detailing more facts that the Liberal media and special open border interest groups does not want to release, you must judge all the untruths that we have been led to believe? You should just key into any search browser as Google, either American Patrol or NumbersUSA web address to learn facts and extract them from the propaganda mills. At the American Patrol site is a daily outreach of hundreds of unbiased releases of daily news accounts of criminal activity, Congress and reports on what ails this great country. Stuff the liberal media journalists conceal or lie about? There are many more organizations that deem illegal aliens are voting in our elections, that illegal aliens are not paying enough taxes for the amount of money they are taking in welfare. That they are stealing other peoples Social Security Numbers, dead or alive, and gaining work through this illicit means. Additionally you petition Washington free about your anxiety at NumbersUSA and phone your further anger at central government phone connection at (202) 224-3121.
