Upstate Voice has previously exposed some of the lies and loopholes contained within the Illegal Immigrant Amnesty bill. Now, a cadre of the establishment political class in the Senate have just voted for a phony border security amendment, in a transparent effort to give themselves political cover.
As we have previously reported, the new Amnesty bill will give immediate legal status to 11-20 million illegal immigrants, allowing chain immigration for upwards of 40 million more over the next decade. All of this will be done with no real guarantees of border security, only empty promises that can be easily ignored, at the discretion of the same unaccountable bureaucrats who refuse to enforce our current immigration laws.
To add insult to injury, the bill has been larded up with giveaways to Senators and special interests, in an effort to garner their support. The following is a current list of pork barrel spending and outrageous provisions that has recently been uncovered in this 1200 page monstrosity of a bill.
$100 million to promote travel (to Las Vegas)
Cheap Immigrant Labor For Alaska’s Fish Processing Industry.
Grant amnesty to ‘climate change refugees’
20,000 extra visas for meat cutters and trimmers
10,500 E-3 visas to Irish nationals + Family Members
Visas For Foreign Ski/Snowboard Instructors
Three-year, renewable visas For Real Estate Investors > $500,000
New “W” visa for up to 200,000 low skilled immigrants
Canadian Snowbird Association Members Stay in U.S. 8 months per year.
120,000-250,000 so called “merit based” visas annually
There are just a few of the outrageous new provisions discovered so far in the new Amnesty bill. More discoveries are sure to come to light, once we have had a chance to actually review the bill. I suppose our political ruling class will have to pass the bill before we are allowed to find out what is in it.
Let’s see, where have I heard that before?
Considering the Senate fix is already in, it appears our only hope to stop this misguided, open borders, amnesty bill is to contact our representatives in the house and strongly urge them to oppose the legislation. House leader John Boehner needs to take a stand and stop this bill now.
