Education – Will Derail Comprehensive Immigration Reform
How Many More – The Theory
By Ruthie Hendrycks
October, 2010

As I have stated many times in the past “Education” is a very strong tool, and I believe it is just that, educating the public and our Legislators, that will bring the demise of H. 4321 presented by House Members Ortiz and Gutierrez and/or S. 3932 presented by Menendez.
But, one of the provisions not being discussed, that will have devastating effects to our nations sovereignty, safety, sustainability, population concerns and almost every aspect of citizenship is “The Family Unification Plan” referred to as Promoting Family Unity.

Let me say first and foremost, there should be absolutely no discussion of a Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) until our borders and ports are secured, primarily our southern border with military and/or a wall. We will not be fooled by the empty promises and lies, once again. I also believe these bills further erode the “Rule of Law” via amnesty.

The size of these bills, (the 645 page H 4321 and the 874 page S 3932) makes it almost impossible for the average citizen to comprehend exactly what each bill entails.
But, as several organizations have already alluded to – included in the bills are:
The DREAM Act; Preemption of all State and Local laws pertaining to immigration enforcement; Mandated free legal services for civil proceeding; the right to free prompt and adequate medical care; a new guest worker program titled H-2C; qualification would NOT exclude those who used a false SSN to work and so on, all under the title Lawful Prospective Immigrant.

Of course, they do attempt to “throw a bone” to those hoping for a solution to many of the concerns within illegal immigration, provisions such as: taunting border security, the English language and the payment of taxes and fines, but one must wonder…. In reality, if they do not enforce our current laws and refuse to secure the border first, why would or should we believe that these bipartisan grabbing provisions will be enforced?

CIR (both bills) will provide the illegal alien with the reward of ……bringing their family members to the U.S. How many additional people will enter the US thru this program is unknown, but I have created a projected theory. I do find it amazing that we know how many cows are in the US, how many cells phones are in use and texts sent but our leaders are unable to tell “We The People” – how many illegal aliens are in the US.

For the theory on just how many will flood to the U.S., we must start with an educated number, which fluctuates wildly. So for the sake of argument, lets say that 10 to 30 million individual are residing here illegally. Let’s take the middle road for a starting point and use 15 million. Now, lets assume that of these 15 million – 1/3 (which I believe to be conservative) have no family members or their family members are already here illegally, that leaves us with 10 million.

Taking into consideration that the illegal alien may or may not have parents, a spouse or less than 5 children – lets assume that illegal alien has one spouse and three children (again conservative). Therefore, the number this theory produces is 10 million x 4 million which equals – 40 million. Then add in the original 15 million already here to the prospective family members – those being rewarded for breaking our laws it equals –
55 million. Fifty Five Million people rewarded with amnesty, because this Administration, past Administrations and our elected officials refuse to take the high road and enforce our immigration laws. This does not bring into the fold – the additional individuals that will demand to join the new family members – it is endless.

Those in the “Pro-Amnesty Camp” will demand that the Family Unification Plan positively be included in CIR – and I believe that removal of this provision, would successfully end CIR – not to mention, garnet a great backlash.

Could someone please explain to me why we are going to reward those who disrespected our immigration laws and knowingly entered illegally – many who continue to ignore and break our laws – with amnesty and then continue to throw the rewards at these illegal aliens by allowing the family members to join them in the United States – not only rewarding the original 10 to 15 million plus but their family members as well for illegal behavior?

Additionally, please enlighten me (especially those who share the thought that we cannot simply enforce our current laws and demand that those in the Country illegally – depart and if they want to share in the American Dream, return legally) who these projected 55 million individuals are; what is their criminal background, if any; what is their health status; what are their views of the USA – friend or foe; will they assimilate to U.S. customs, culture and language, etc.?

Of course we are also not hearing anything of the cost to the U.S. Taxpayer or financial strain for the needs, welfare, education, transition, and lack on employment opportunities that will arise for all involved. Nor, do we hear about the additional aspects of our over-crowded prisons, crime, environmental concerns, urban sprawl etc. that these REWARDED Illegal Prospective Immigrants will create.

One could also wonder, if the terminology in a recent political debate, that being ….
“New Americans” warrants, “behind the scene” actions of S 3932 are in play?
Why, would I be concerned…. Because per Sec. 621(a), beginning on the date S 3932 would be enacted, the Office of Citizenship of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services will be changed and referred to as the `Office of Citizenship and New Americans’.

Again, I believe that both bills are nothing more than Amnesty, that sends a clear message that if you successfully disregard our immigration laws and make it to the U.S. – we will not only reward you for your illegal behavior with Amnesty – we will reward your family members as well. Quite frankly, it is not our immigration system, for the most part, that seems to be broken, – but the lack of enforcing our immigration laws.

We must once again rise up and have our voices heard.
Now is the time to educate (prior to the upcoming Lame Duck session, prior to any discussion of Comprehensive Immigration Reform) your family, friends, fellow Americans and your Legislators to what these bills entail.
We must not make the mistake of assuming our fellow citizens are “In The Know”.

Several paragraphs from the bill on the Family unification Plan are:

CIR Act of 2010 (Introduced in Senate – IS)


`(v) WAIVER- The Secretary has sole discretion to waive clause (i) in the case of an immigrant who is the spouse, son, daughter or parent of a United States citizen or of an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence, if it is established to the satisfaction of the Secretary that the refusal of admission to such immigrant alien would result in hardship to the alien or to the citizen or lawfully resident spouse, son, daughter, or parent of such alien or if the Secretary determines in her unreviewable discretion that a waiver is necessary for humanitarian purposes or the public interest or to ensure family unity in the case of an alien who is eligible for an immigrant visa under section 201 or 203. Clause (i) may also be waived by the Secretary, in her sole and unreviewable discretion, if she permits the alien to depart the United States voluntarily pursuant to section 240B(a)(1). No court shall have jurisdiction to review a decision or action by the Attorney General regarding a waiver under this clause.

(D) JUDICIAL DISCRETION- In the case of an alien subject to removal, deportation, or exclusion, the immigration judge may exercise discretion to decline to order the alien removed, deported or excluded from the United States if the judge determines that such removal, deportation, or exclusion is against the public interest or would result in hardship to the alien’s United States citizen or permanent resident parent, spouse or child except that this subparagraph shall not apply to an alien whom the judge determines
