US Citizenship Immigration Services

BUT, that is not in the scope of this article. I’ll leave that for another writing. For now, I will only be dealing with the issue of “immigration” as it relates to “amnesty.”)

Another (not so veiled) Amnesty Plan

Plane

 

Recently (May 14,2014), Sal Russo of the Tea Party Express wrote an op-ed titled, “Conservatives Need to Fix the Broken Immigration System.”  In this op-ed, Russo addresses several different aspects of the "immigration" issue.  While there are many parts of his op-ed that I actually agree with, make no mistake, color it any way you want to, he is advocating amnesty.  According to Russo:

In a political time in our country when we are deeply divided over the best way to achieve immigration reform and how best to secure our borders, it’s more important than ever to more fully understand the underlying cause for mass illegal immigration into the United States. It’s also critical to realize that as we endlessly debate the issue, hundreds, if not thousands, of migrants will continue to die each year—migrants who are real people, and who will continue to risk their lives to come here no matter what we try to do to stop them.
