U.S. – Arizona – Kerry Offers “Amnesty for Illegal Aliens”

If you’ve been in the U.S. illegally for five years, John Kerry will probably offer you amnesty.

Speaking to the national Council of La Raza’s national conference, he said that “within 100 days of taking office, he would propose a four-part plan that would give a citizenship path to illegal immigrants “who have paid taxes while living here and who pass security screening.”

It is time to fulfill the promise of America, so that those who work hard and take responsibility and build a better life for them and their families, and live by the rules, and pay their taxes and raise their families have a right to share in America and its citizenship in the fullest," the Democratic candidate for president said.

This is a hot issue in America today. How are we going to deal with the 8 to 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States. The word illegal implies that these people have broken the law. There are thousands waiting that have been screened that are legally waiting visas in other countries. Some of them have been waiting for years. The illegals are thumbing their noses at the American legal system, trampling on the rights of those that are patiently waiting, and putting us all at risk.

Kerry’s plan goes much further than President Bush’s “Guest Worker Program that would allow current illegal immigrants and foreigners living overseas to apply for a renewable three-year temporary visa.

Kerry labels Bush’s plan “exploitative,” dismissing it as “work in America for low cost and never having a chance to be a citizen.”

Both plans are labeled "amnesty" by “those that want stricter controls on immigration.” There are several immigration plans pending in Congress.

America is a land of immigrants. Most Americans are not adverse to having more immigrants come to the United States, but they would rather know who they are BEFORE they come. It is comparable to knowing the people who are invited to your home. Some strangers are simply too dangerous to invite into anyone’s home. Is that too much too ask?

Read the rest. You decide.
