Ten Ways The Bush Administration Promotes Illegal Immigration

This is just a partial list of the ways that the Bush administration or those over whom that administration has some control have encouraged illegal immigration. These are presented in no particular order and even more examples will be provided in the future:

  1. In March 2005, Bush called the Minuteman Project "vigilantes" (link). That quote has been used endlessly by the media and others (search).
  2. Not interceding in the Ramos/Compean case (two Border Patrol agents who appear to have been railroaded by the U.S. government.)
  3. Working on the "Security and Prosperity Partnership" (spp.gov), which appears to be the precursor to the "North American Union" (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico joined into an EU-style union)
  4. The Federal Reserve trying to profit from illegal immigration by taking a cut of the money ("remittances") that illegal aliens send from the U.S. back to Mexico. Major commercial banks will also be able to take a cut of that money, and may end up lobbying politicians to allow more illegal immigration. And, needless to say, it's extremely dangerous to allow a governmental entity to profit from illegal activity.
  5. Fighting to allow banks to accept Mexico's ID card ("Matricula Consular"). That card is largely used by illegal aliens, and Mexico freely passes them out to their citizens who are here illegally.
  6. The USDA working with Mexico to give benefits to their citizens in the U.S.
  7. Bush enabling Mexico to move their citizens into New Orleans, displacing American hurricane victims and undercutting their wages.
  8. George P. Bush - nephew of the president - was scheduled to speak at the Dallas pro-illegal immigration march on April 9, 2006 (link)
  9. The FDIC working with Mexico to give home loans to illegal aliens in Chicago. That program began in 2003.
  10. Karl Rove was a featured speaker at the National Council of La Raza convention (link). That group has issues with assimilation and patriotism, funds an extremist charter school, and has other issues.)
