Gang of Eight’s Immigration Reform: Gang Members and Drunk Drivers are Welcome if …
Appearing in CFP.
Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), are urging Congress not to stop or delay the Gang of Eight’s immigration reform because of the Boston Marathon bombings. Sen. Marco Rubio’s spokesman, Alex Conant, warned on Friday, “The situation in Boston is still developing and it’s too soon to jump to conclusions, let alone use the tragedy to make political points,” referring to the Boston Marathon bombers, who were legalized in the U.S.— two brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, from Russia.
Let’s cut to the chase. If the Gang of Eight’s so-called immigration reform legislation becomes law, expect the number of illegal aliens that will be legalized in a broken, crime riddled agency, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), to explode. Everyone from family members, step children, gang members and drunk drivers are welcome to apply. Moreover, as Crime & Incompetence: Guide to America’s Immigration Crisis documents, the USCIS can’t process legal immigrants competently let alone millions of illegal aliens. Even the Government Accountability Office has warned that the USCIS does not operate using “best practices.” These are just some of many reasons why this reckless bill should be scrapped immediately.
Gang of Eight welcomes gang members and drunk drivers
On page 606 of the Gang of Eight’s 844-page legislation called, “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act,” under “Subtitle G—Interior Enforcement, Sec. 3701: Criminal street gangs,” we learn that gang members (with no prior convictions) can apply for a waiver by simply “renouncing” their associations with street gangs.
“‘(ii) WAIVER.—The Secretary may waive clause (i)(II) if the alien has renounced all association with the criminal street gang, is otherwise admissible, and is not a threat to the security of the United States (bold mine).’’
On page 608 drunk drivers are welcome too if they have only been busted three times before the Gang of Eight’s bill is enacted.
‘‘(J) HABITUAL DRUNK DRIVERS.—An alien convicted of 3 or more offenses on separate dates, at least 1 of which occurred after the date of the enactment of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, related to driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated is inadmissible (bold mine).’’
For illegal aliens who have already been kicked out of America? No problem if they have only been kicked out twice (page 614).
‘‘(c) REENTRY AFTER REPEATED REMOVAL.—Any alien who has been denied admission, excluded, deported, or removed 3 or more times and thereafter enters, attempts to enter, crosses the border to, attempts to cross the border to, or is at any time found in the United States, shall be fined under title 18, United States Code, and imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both (bold mine).
As for Sen. Marco Rubio, the useful idiot, the new kid on the Washington block, he has quickly become a full blown liar like his seasoned colleagues. As I have repeatedly reported, despite what Rubio, and the others, including President Barack Obama, say there are not 11 million illegal aliens in America. There is no place to count them. Even if there were such a place, what illegal alien would go there to be counted? Not many, if any. Therefore whatever the real number of illegal aliens in America really is, that number will explode as the illegal aliens, (drunk drivers, and gang members), are all permitted to bring in family members.
Beginning on p. 59 of the Gang of Eight’s bill under Title II- Immigrant Visas, Subtitle A—Registration and Adjustment of Registered Provisional Immigrants, illegal aliens will now be called “Registered Provisional Immigrant.”
Later on p. 70 we learn:
“(B) FAMILY APPLICATION.—The Secretary shall establish a process through which an alien may submit a single application under this section on behalf of the alien, his or her spouse, and his or her children, who are residing in the United States. … “
Naturally stepchildren can come too. On page 322, the age for stepchildren has been amended from 18 to 21 years. When did 21-year olds become children? Who cares, it is more the merrier according to the Gang of Eight.
“Sec. 2310. Equal Treatment for All Stepchildren. Section 101(b)(1)(B) (8 U.S.C. 1101(b)(1)(B)) is amended by striking ‘‘eighteen years’’ and inserting ‘‘21 years.’’”
Meanwhile instead of fixing the existing nonsensical, arbitrary bureaucracy that plagues the broken, crime riddled USCIS for legal immigrants, the Gang of Eight has made it worse by creating new categories, bureaucratic nightmares, and quotas out of thin air to add to the USCIS’s tasks of things to do. The bill creates a merit-based system green card (merit-based points track I & 2, page 27 & 256), and the blue card (page 151). The Gang of Eight’s bill is like a bad reality TV show. How many points do you need to win a green card? You get 10 points if you speak English (page 262). If you are “in a zone 4 occupation” the alien shall be “allocated 8 points” (p. 261, line 14, ii) and so forth.
When the Gang of Eight claims that their bill must be passed because “the [immigration] status quo is unsustainable,” one must ask: who is responsible for the status quo? America’s leaders are responsible for the status quo. It’s their fault. It’s the Gang of Eight’s fault.
Had Republican and Democrat administrations (Bush, Clinton, Bush and now Obama), Congress and the federal government done their jobs and enforced America’s immigration laws, secured the borders, and had an immigration agency, USCIS, that wasn’t an anti-legal immigration, lawless, arbitrary, incompetent agency that creates illegal aliens, there would be no immigration crisis—hence the status quo. This is a false talking point that plays politics with immigration. It’s despicable considering how immigration affects America’s national security and economy. The status quo could change tomorrow beginning with enforcing existing laws and securing the border. Look no further for proof than at the lawsuit filed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents against the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and ICE chief John Morton. ICE agents are forbidden to do their jobs. They aredisciplined for doing their jobs. As the Associated Press reported, “Their political superiors are ordering them to violate federal law,” said Kris Kobach who is representing the ICE agents.
Need more proof? Go to court houses around the country and look up writ of mandamus. Do not be deceived by the Gang of Eight. The Ponzi-scheme run USCIS can’t do their job properly either thanks to Washington’s failed leadership.
Indeed the Gang of Eight, who already has failed America by sanctioning lawlessness, has failed again by crafting an immigration bill that will make the immigration crisis worse. Dangerously so.
Get the truth about the immigration crisis here. Read it and weep.
