Granting Unconditional Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants. . .That’s the subject of this Big B File.
We recently witnessed the defeat . . .thankfully . . . of the Amnesty Bill. I first wrote about this issue on May 3, 2006 in a Big B File entitled “Illegal Immigration . . .Huge Slap in the Face!” I wrote the following:
“To me, illegal immigration is like a HUGE slap in the face to all those . . . who . . . went through all the hoops, hurdles, the red tape, etc. to become legalized United States Citizens at a ceremony to take the Oath of Citizenship, surrounded by their families and others, including people who are already U.S. Citizens. It is often said that it is a proud moment for those people, which is being cheapened at the very least by those who come to this country illegally!
The Illegals, especially those who marched on May 1st do not think they are criminals. I hate to tell you this illegals, but you already are. You became criminals the moment you crossed the border into this country illegally. That’s what the word illegal means . . . you are breaking the law. I work with someone every morning when I serve mass at the Hospital Chapel who immigrated to this country Legally.
It would be as if I went up to an immigrant and slapped them as hard as I can in the face, because that is exactly what the illegal immigration advocates are doing to those who immigrate to this country legally.”

The Big B Files – May 3rd, 2006
Recently I got an email newsletter from 97.1 FM Talk in St. Louis, Missouri. It had a link to a letter written by Mr. Dave Glover, host of The Dave Glover Show on 97.1 FM Talk. Dave Glover’s letter presented what is the Best Analogy to date, since Mark Hyman spoke about the issue on “The Point with Mark Hyman” back in 2006.
A Message From Dave Glover
As we speak, I am engaged in a bitter border war. When I left my house this morning, my backyard was full of illegal immigrants. Friends, I have a goose problem. About six months ago I moved my family to a house on a small lake. I still remember the day I first saw the geese. Standing on my deck, a steaming cup of coffee in my hand, I yelled “Maureen, we have geese!!!!” I was so happy…..I had arrived….a house by a lake…and I had geese, who could ask for more. About a month ago, I stood on my deck, a steaming cup of coffee in my hand, and again yelled “Maureen, WE HAVE GEESE!!!!” You see, what was once a friendly, mutually respectful relationship had gone very, very bad.
Geese, you see, like to poop…..in fact, they love to poop……each goose is responsible for approximately 5 pounds of poop per day. That’s a lot of poop, my friends. So, I had a problem…..how to rid my property of the unwanted invaders.
One day last week, as I was filling bag after bag with goose droppings, I realized something……my problem with the geese has several similarities with our Nation’s illegal immigration problem. In both cases, there are uninvited visitors, who take advantage of the available resources, and (in my opinion) created bigger problems for the landowner than they resolve. In both cases many attempts have been made to remedy the situation, taking special care not to, in any way, do harm or even offend the invaders.
In my case, I heard that geese fear snakes and owls, so I purchased several rubber snakes and a big fake owl and placed them strategically on the edge of my yard. Useless! It didn’t take long for the geese (who aren’t stupid) to figure out that my “border guards” had no actual authority. Within hours, they were walking right passed my border security agents…..in fact; I could swear I heard one of the geese laughing at the owl (if only I could use real owls and snakes. That would shut them up fast!). Next, I erected a fence (my daughter Phoebe’s play pin) alas, I only had enough fencing to cover a small portion of the border, and the geese just walked around it. (Sound familiar?) Finally, in a last ditch effort, I attempted to make my land less attractive to the invaders, I sprayed this nasty substance that smells like garlic all over the grass. Evidently, I have Italian geese, because they loved the garlic seasoning and spent more time than ever in my yard…..the only difference is that now I am picking up goose poop that has a hint of garlic. Likewise, our government could (if they had the courage) make our land less attractive to illegal immigrants by cracking down on companies that hire them. Believe me, if I find that one of my family members is employing a goose, I’m going to lose it!
My border war is about to come to an end. After exhausting all of the inexpensive and non-violent deterrents, I have just purchased a very expensive fence that will run the perimeter of my property, effectively cutting the geese off from my beautiful, garlic flavored grass. This should fix my problem (unless of course geese can fly, but that’s just silly). How our government will solve its problem with illegal immigrants (yes, I still call them illegal immigrants, because, you know, they’ve immigrated illegally….duh) I don’t know, that’s for greater minds than mine. But I can tell you this…….our government should save its money on border guards with no real authority and partial fences…..as I’ve learned, they don’t work, and the illegals just laugh at you.

Well put Dave… hate to tell you this, but Geese DO fly. A number of surveys all say that the majority of Americans oppose the bill that President Bush and The Far Left S-P’s like Comrades Dick Durbin, Ted Kennedy, and Harry Reid are trying to revive once again.
According to a Fox News/Opinion Dynamics Poll released today, 58% of Americans oppose the legislation that was killed last week and instead enforce the U.S. immigration laws already on the books. The Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll also says the following on this issue.
By 55 percent to 34 percent, Americans support the government raids on businesses that employ large numbers of illegal immigrants.
Finally, most Americans oppose giving Mexico special preference by allowing a larger number of Mexican immigrants to come to the United States. Fully 84 percent think Mexico should be treated the same as all other countries.
You can see the entire poll yourself by clicking here. As long as ANY Legislation has the Amnesty provision as a part of the bill, the Big B Files will to oppose it in the strongest terms possible. If you want to send a fax to your member of congress (House and Senate) on this issue, go to NumberUSA to do so by clicking here. Even former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is letting President Bush have it in the strongest possible terms possible (click here for video)! The senate bill would have granted instant amnesty to Gangbangers AND Convicted felons! The Far Left S-P’s like Comrades Dick Durbin, Ted Kennedy, and Harry Reid would have been overjoyed because it would esscentially wiped out the Republican party in the United States of America because as Bill O’Reilly said on the Oreilly Factor that they would vote 3 to 1 Democrat. If you want to see what I mean, just look at New York State . . .the Republican Party is for all intents and purtoses nonexistant.
