Look up the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Google it. That was suppose to be comprehensive immigration reform, but you will find plenty of excuses explaining why it supposedly fell short. Both Democrats and Republicans will make excuses. Leaders in both parties will explain why we need another amnesty (even if they refuse to call it that). However, the primary reason the law did not work is our political leaders never enforced it. Our leaders usually will not admit it, but only the willfully blind could miss something so obvious. Because they provide cheap labor, leaders in both parties want the illegal immigrants, and Democrats want the cheap votes.
So why do our leaders lie to us? Do they know we will not honor our principles and hold them accountable? That does seem to be the case. Consider the latest, the invasion of children across our southern border. Of course, the big corporate news media is not reporting the full story. Instead, they are trying to blame President George W. Bush, Immigrant Surge Rooted in Law to Curb Child Trafficking (www.nytimes.com).
WASHINGTON — It was one of the final pieces of legislation signed into law by President George W. Bush, a measure that passed without controversy, along with a pension bill and another one calling for national parks to be commemorated on quarters. (continued here)
That bill Bush signed in 2008, was that not immigration reform too? That reform also did not work. Is it not strange how these reforms never work? But to be fair, it is difficult to blame a law that isn’t being enforced. Consider what that same New York Times reported in 2012, Obama to Permit Young Migrants to Remain in U.S.
Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children will be allowed to remain in the country without fear of deportation and able to work, under an executive action the Obama administration announced on Friday. (continued here)
So what has the big corporate news media left unsaid? Doesn’t Mexico control its borders? So how are all those children getting through Mexico?

- Yes, the Mexican Government is Facilitating the Immigrant Influx from Central America (www.rushlimbaugh.com)
Well, I took it upon myself to find out, and this is what they are doing. And this is not from some right-wing outlet. What I have here is it a story from the Examiner.com, but it’s basically a rewrite of a Spanish language report from El Universal. “On Monday, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference in Playas de Catazaja, Mexico, to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America, to cross into Mexico.” (from here)
- Mexico, Guatemala fast-track delivery of illegals to U.S. (www.wnd.com)
Mexico and Guatemala have reached an agreement that is intended to make it easier and safer for Central Americans, including unaccompanied minors, to enter the United States illegally.
Though largely unreported in the U.S. mainstream media, the two nations agreed on July 7, in a presidential-level meeting in Mexico, to make it legal and safe for Central American immigrants, including unaccompanied minors, to cross Mexico’s border with Guatemala and transit Mexico en route to the U.S. border at the Rio Grande.

- Report: Guatemala-Mexico Border Wide Open (www.breitbart.com)
CNN National Correspondent Gary Tuchman reported live from the Guatemala-Mexico border, where many of the illegal immigrants entering the United States being their journey, that passage from Guatemala into Mexico is “easy” because the border is unsecured. (continued here)
We are being played for suckers. Right now we are being ruled by a bunch of liars, and President Barack Obama is our lying king. If we want our government to work, to perform honorably, then we must behave honorably ourselves. Instead of robbing our neighbors and even our own children by voting for government handouts, we must start voting for leaders who just promise they will do their best to protect our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Otherwise, we and our children will soon have nothing, including those precious rights.
