    Obama Seeks Amnesty For Illegal Aliens
    General; Posted on: 2009-04-21 18:11:33 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]

    One of the greatest disappointments expressed by former President George W. Bush was his inability to provide amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens.

    by Chuck Baldwin

    But as is so often the case, the departure of one Presidential administration and the advent of another Presidential administration seldom means great change, loquacious rhetoric by the current President notwithstanding. The plan to provide amnesty for illegal aliens is a classic case in point.

    President Barack Obama is determined to succeed where G.W. Bush failed. According to many published reports, he fully intends to grant amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens. In fact, granting amnesty to illegal aliens is on Obama's short list of priorities. That short list includes the nationalization of America's financial systems, the nationalization of America's healthcare and energy systems, expanding the wars in the Middle East, strengthening and increasing global agreements and associations, gun control (perhaps using international treaties where congressional legislation has failed), and amnesty to illegal aliens.

    Watch for Obama to make a full-court press for an amnesty proposal next month. He has already appointed working groups to study strategies. Administration sources have said Obama wants amnesty legislation on his desk by this fall at the latest.



    One way Obama is preparing the path for amnesty is contained in the massive stimulus bill already passed by Congress and signed into law. According to USA Today, "Tens of thousands of jobs created by the economic stimulus law could end up filled by illegal immigrants, particularly in big states such as California where undocumented workers are heavily represented in construction, experts on both sides of the issue say.

    "Studies by two conservative think tanks estimate immigrants in the United States illegally could take 300,000 construction jobs, or 15% of the 2 million jobs that new taxpayer-financed projects are predicted to create."

    What both Presidents Bush and Obama (and John McCain, too) refuse to acknowledge is the devastating effects that illegal immigration inflicts upon the overall health and safety of the people of United States. In strict financial terms, the numbers are staggering.

    According to research by Frosty Wooldridge, over $2 billion is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens every year; $2.5 billion is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens every year; $12 billion is spent on primary and secondary school education every year for children here illegally (and most cannot speak a word of English); $17 billion a year is spent on education for so-called "anchor babies"; and $90 billion a year is spent on illegal aliens for welfare and social services. Add all of the various costs to U.S. taxpayers for illegal aliens and the total is a whopping $338 billion each year.
