Bush immigration plan

17 05 2006


After listening to Bush's speech on immigration this week, I figured out what his plan really entails:

1) "They" make immigration a big deal, so all the illegals get scared

2) Bush offers illegals the chance to be legal by joining the military and fighting our battles

3) Immigrants sign up and US continues to exploit them for monetary/political gain

4) White middle class people care less about what battles we go into because it's not their kids dying

5) The government gets free reign and in the meantime puts the crack-down on our civil liberties

That's my on-the-fly theory.

“No doubt many would be willing to serve for some set period, in return for one of the world’s most precious commodities – US citizenship.”

“Stretched thin in Afghanistan and Iraq, the American military will begin recruiting skilled immigrants who are living in this country with temporary visas, offering them the chance to become United States citizens in as little as six months.”

“If the pilot program succeeds as Pentagon officials anticipate, it will expand for all branches of the military. For the Army, it could eventually provide as many as 14,000 volunteers a year, or about one in six recruits.”
