The amnesty myth of Roy Beck / Numbers USA while he fights a legal method to fix a clearly broken immigration systemTuesday, April 16th, 2013
Roy Beck of Numbers USA is lying.
He is lying about the legal immigration reform plan that has garnered bipartisanship support from both Republicans and Democrats because he claims the Outline of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 is amnesty.
Nothing can be further from the truth. As a former bomb dog handler and veteran of the United States Air Force, I want to underscore that the 2013 Legal immigration reform bill is a major step forward in securing our Nation because only after everyone is registered and documented will we know who is in our Nation and where we can find them. We know that once we fix the broken immigration system, and once we document all immigrants — then they can feel safe to help law enforcement agencies to target criminal activity without the fear of deportation when they report suspicious activity to the law enforcement authorities. Therefore, bringing the immigrants out of the shadows will only strengthen our Nation’s security.
The great and former Republican Ronald Reagan gave amnesty, and the 2013 bipartisanship bill does not give amnesty.
Furthermore, and more importantly … the only immigrants who are given privileged amnesty are the Cuban immigrants under the Cuban Adjustment Act where Cuban immigrants receive government benefits once their wet-foot reaches dry-land.
Why hasn’t Roy Beck and Numbers USA addressed the privileged Cuban amnesty if he is really against amnesty? Mexican immigrants do not get government benefits that Cuban immigrants receive.
It is clear that the immigration system is broken and this is why a bipartisanship effort is needed in order to fix the immigration system via a legal immigration plan.
