For those who were so fighting for the so-called "comprehensive immigration reform" bill-scam, one of the "highlights" for those looking for the security side was the "Z-Visa".
Allegedly, this "Z-Visa" would only be given to an illegal immigrant after a-get this-a 24 hour period in which the applicant would have a background check completed.
Now, lets us stop laughing and say that there is absolutely no way that thousands upon thousands of applications can be processed in 24 hours with a thorough background check. The fact is, the current "system" is fundamentally non-enforceable since there is not enough Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel to handle the way things are now.
What is the side that those "comprehensive immigration reform" people never want to talk about is the criminal activity of illegal immigrants. And, sometimes that inability to enforce the law leads to deadly results.
The latest example is the case of four young people having a pleasant summer evening in Newark, New Jersey. That evening was ruined allegedly by one Jose Carranza, 28, an illegal alien from Peru. To make matters worse, there was a 15 year old boy with Mr. Carranza. What did Mr. Carranza and the boy do? Allegedly, Mr. Carranza and the boy forced the four black youths to their knees and blew their heads off. One girl did survive but is in critical condition. If that does not make you sick, consider this. Mr. Carranza was out on bail. And the bail was given as Mr. Carranza was charged with raping repeatedly a girl. And that started before the girl was five years old! Oh, but Mr. Carranza was using an alias and a fake social security number. But, according to Essex County sheriff Armando Fontura, the authorities KNEW that Mr. Carranza was an illegal alien!
There are countless cases of this nature throughout the United States. Another case involves an illegal alien in Virginia Beach, Virginia where the suspect was driving drunk and killed a pedestrian.
Yet, the proponents of "comprehensive immigration reform" would argue that we are just being alarmist and there are not really the numbers out there. WRONG!
And, this does fall into national security.
When Cuban dictator Fidel Castro dumped a slew of Cubans during the infamous Mariel boat lift in 1980, Mr. Castro made damn sure to dump his criminals onto our shores.
Do not think that the reform proponents were serious about the 24 hour background check to get the "Z-Visa", which also would have been able to be renewed into perpetuity by the illegal alien.
And that was a major problem with the bill-scam. It was not serious except to legalize 12 to 20 million illegal aliens.
Everything else thrown in later was a bone to get more senators to vote for the bill-scam.
But, the current situation and what was proposed does not nor did not be a solution to a serious problem. This should be an issue in the presidential campaign. But, lets see if it will.
