Amnesty Round-Up

I spend a lot of my internet time reading National Review's main blog, The Corner. Today, NR has a lot of great columns and links about the Amnesty.

Here are links to some of them:

  • Robert Rector (senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation): Amnesty Plus---This amnesty is going to cost us, US citizens/taxpayers, a ton of money . . . and the illegal aliens will be rewarded with a ton of money. Where can I sign up for free money?
  • The Editors: No Amnesty for Senators---The Senators should do the right thing, which is also, this time, the popular thing.
  • Robert B. Bluey (director of the Center for Media & Public Policy at the Heritage Foundation): Do-Nothing? You Know-Nothing.---Supporters of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill Amnesty want us to believe we can either approve this bill or do nothing. But there's a third choice: enforce our current laws. Brilliant.
  • Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND): Unlabor Day---This amnesty will be bad for American workers.
  • Kris Kobac (professor of law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City): A wake-up call for the Senate---Supporters of this bill don't see the connection between illegal immigration and terrorism. This leaves us vulnerable.
