If it's amnesty, it's not a "compromise"

Enemies of the people: They're laughing at your expense.

The so-called compromise worked out between el Presidente Bush and his cronies in the allegedly opposition party is anything but a compromise. To call it that, as so many of our Old Media hack reporters have done, is the latest stroke of dishonesty in the campaign to flood the country with low-wage, low-IQ, uneducated workers from the Third World.

As summarized by NumbersUSA, the provisions of the bill will include:
  • An immediate amnesty for nearly all 12-20 million illegal aliens who will get legal status for residence and jobs (with the assurance of getting green cards no later than 13 years);
  • Mandatory workplace verification and some extra enforcement to try to slow the flow of the next 12 million illegal aliens enticed by the amnesty;
  • Tripling of the rate of chain migration of extended family from around 250,000 a year to around 750,000 a year for about a decade; and
  • New flows of 400,000 temporary foreign workers each year, bringing their families and having anchor babies who will be given U.S. citizenship.
This is amnesty, pure and simple. Illegals will be rewarded with citizenship, or the right to remain in the country, for breaking the law, a departure from traditional legal and ethical codes that is breathtaking in its audacity. But that's the plan of el Presidente, his Democrat pals who are privately congratulating themselves at their fantastic good luck in working with a nominally Republican president on behalf of a measure that will ensure permanent control of the government by Democrats, and his Republican allies who bark and fetch for their corporate masters.

Presumably the second item is the excuse for labeling the bill a compromise. Does anyone seriously expect an administration that has never made an effort to "try to slow the flow" of illegal aliens is going to start once it has legalized The Invasion? El Presidente is so contemptuous of the anger and flat-out opposition he has generated by putting the United States up for sale to big business that he isn't even bothering to wait until amnesty has passed and he's signed it. He's already chipping away at provisions that might inconvenience any migrants. The Boston Globe today carries this note:
The Bush administration insisted on a little-noticed change in the bipartisan Senate immigration bill that would enable 12 million undocumented residents to avoid paying back taxes or associated fines to the Internal Revenue Service, officials said. An independent analyst estimated the decision could cost the IRS tens of billions of dollars.

A provision requiring payment of back taxes had been in the initial version of a bill proposed by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat. But the administration called for the provision to be removed due to concern that it would be too difficult to figure out which illegal immigrants owed back taxes.

How much do you want to bet that the various other pseudo-border-enforcement details will be determined to be impractical by politicians who'll be happy to see them scuppered?

This amnesty should be defeated. El Presidente Generalissimo Bush and his ruling junta should be impeached for treason.

Incredible. So it would be 'too difficult' for the government to determine who owes back taxes? Yet the IRS has no difficulty in determining which of a few hundred million Americans owes back taxes.
If they can't -- or more likely, won't -- deal with those little details, they can't enforce the other provisions.
And I agree completely with your last two sentences.
