Immigration reform talking points busted

Here’s a handy guide to refute the Gang of Eight’s talking points on immigration reform.:  At the bottom of the post is a list of telephone numbers and faxes for key US Senators, please call them once a day and speak to one talking point daily.:  If you can’t speak to a staffer, leave a message.:  As always, be polite.

Beginning on Monday, I’ll be posting a letter you can copy and paste into a fax on each of these talking points.

DHS enforces immigration law

  • DHS refuses to enforce existing immigration law and the President issues executive orders.

“Multiple triggers”

  • Legalization is: immediate. DHS just has to write border “plan.”:  The most: any “triggers” can possibly do is delay green cards and citizenship.

90 % effectiveness”

  • If not reached, triggers only toothless commission that will make a recommendation to DHS.:  DHS can discard it.
  • DHS has admitted: in Congressional testimony that not only can’t they secure the border, they can’t even define border security.
  • Napolitano has already declared: the border to be “secure”.

“Pay back taxes”

  • Only if already “assessed” by IRS (unlikely).
  • Newly legalized: may instead: get: refunds.

Learn English”

  • Only need to sign up for English class.

“Clean record”

  • Allows two free misdemeanors. Additional misdemeanors (including assaults) can be waived by DHS.

No “public charge.” Must earn 125% of poverty line

“Pay a fine

  • Can be waived by DHS.

“Back of the line”

  • Illegals get to wait out the line while living: in the U.S. (unlike suckers trying to come here: legally).

Border fence

“Comprehensive Southern Border Security Strategy”

  • Only has to be “substantially” operational—whatever that means, as defined by DHS—before green cards are issued. (Legalization has already happened, remember!)
  • Napolitano has already declared: the border to be “secure”.

“E-verify” employment checks

  • Replaces E-Verify with new system. Requires only that this system be “implemented” ( 30%? 70%? Who knows?).
  • Subject to lawsuit. : If still in court after 10 years, never mind!

Entry-exit system for visa

  • Has been required since 1996. : DHS: must only be “using” a system before green cards can be: issued. (Using in 10% of airports? 50%? Again, who knows?)

Cost of the bill.: 

  • Proponents are saying that this bill will bring down the deficit because illegals who are being paid under the table will now be paying taxes.:  That claim is a blatant lie.:  According to a Heritage Foundation study, the cost will be $6.3 TRILLION for 11 million illegal immigrants, and there’s a problem with this study.:  The real number will be more on the order of 30 to 40 million.
