Processing for Consular Nonimmigrant Visas
Gregory Siskind, Esq. writes "Most aliens wishing to come to the US for business, study or pleasure on a temporary basis can obtain a nonimmigrant visa at a US consulate. Exceptions exist to nonimmigrant visa requirements for entry into the US, such as the no visa requirement for 90-day visits for aliens with electronic passports from specific countries in the Visa Waiver Program, parolees, and Canadians seeking entry in categories other than the E visa. Residents of Mexico or Canada can enter for limited time and distance with a border-crossing card, or “laser visa”, which is considered a B1/B2 visa. Otherwise, the vast majority of the remaining people who enter the US each year require a visa."

Dear Weekly Editor:
The Guest Worker Program is a SHAM. It WILL NOT WORK. Its simply another LOOP HOLE to appease the PRO Illegal Immigration groups for the future 700 Mile Fence about to be built.

Here is why the Guest Worker Plan is a loop hole and what the Politicians are NOT telling Americans:

(1) About 1/3 of the Illegal Immigrants currently and Illegally hiding in the USA have used current "VISAs" to enter the USA knowing full well they will simply hide in America once they expire. That's Millions and Millions of Illegal Immigrants entering and NOT returning mainly to Mexico.
(2) Millions and Millions of Immigrants will use the "Guest Worker Program for TWO things:

They will enter using "Temporary Guest VISAs " as a quick loop hole around the 700 mile fence. They will hide like the Millions who hide with other types of US VISAs. They will be used by family members of those already here simply to circumvent immigration laws and get to their family members quicker. Millions of those who use the "Guest Worker Program" will will will get pregnant on PURPOSE and deliver their baby in America to use the babies ( Anchor Babies ) to get a wealth of US Tax Paid benefits and use these babies for access into the USA. We cant get the Illegal Immigrants that have used other forms of VISAs fraudulently, so why would ANYONE believe that these "So Called" Temporary Guest Workers will leave when their term of "Temporary Employment Ends" Some Politicians will attempt to make these so called "Temporary Guest Worker Passes for YEARS and YEARS Long !!!! So that each Illegal will get a "Free Pass for MANY YEARS" under the disquise of a "Temporary Guest Worker" Enough time to complete their Citizenship and Amnesty paper work and get hooked into Pro-Illegal groups to help them hide in America" . Thats BOGUS !!!!! People, we had our so called "Last Amnesty" in 1986. You, me and the Citizens were told by our Politicians no more Amnesties. Do not be fooled again. Dont let these Politicians look in your face and lie again. Dont be fooled by ANY FORM of Special Treatment for those who broke US LAW to get " into America " BEFORE those waiting LEGALLY. That would be a travesty of Justice and simply unfair. Some in Congress have called for bogus and simply minor penalties for the GRAND Reward of Citizenship. That's simply BS and Americans will NOT be fooled.

We have 15-20 Million Illegal Immigrants and that's 15-20 Million too many. Why should these Illegal Immigrants get benefits and short cuts that those waiting legally do NOT get. ( Such as Living In America FIRST !!!!!! )

We have Americans that need our precious tax dollars. Why are some of ou Politicians adding to our Social Services strain and why should US Tax Payers be FORCED to pay more to help Illegal Immigrants when we have OUR poor,our Injured, our Minorities, our Elderly that need our help !!!!! Why should OUR Citizens continue to be the victims of crimes ( 25 Killed daily by illegal immigrants , not to mention the larger amount raped, wounded, robbed )

Here are some of the VERY few penalties they want to make in exchange for a US Citizenship and permission to stay IN AMERICA, in front of MILLIONS who wait legally.

Only $2000.00 penalty and they can pay over YEARS !! Must speak English ( but NO Time limit and the test not specified. Probably kinder garden level ) Does ANYONE really think one Illegal Immigrant will be deported for not learning English ? The 15-20 Million Illegal Immigrants that are here will bring in a conservative estimate of 30-45 Million Family members ( if they get their Amnesty to Back Door Citizenship ) THESE FAMILY MEMBERS DO NOT HAVE TO KNOW OR LEARN ENGLISH. Does ANYONE think they will really , all of a sudden learn English when many have been hiding for years illegally and have no interest in learning English.

NO Clause that these Illegal Immigrants must retain English. They pass one test and they can forget it. Has anyone here taken a high School Language Class. Are you still good at it, proficient in it, , probably not. These illegals get to commit up to 3 more crimes against US Citizens before not being eligible for the Amnesty. They ONLY have to pay back 3 years back taxes ( and many will be given Special deals and exceptions ) They only have to work a minimal amount of time while waiting for their citizenship papers. While most of us work 40 or MORE Hours a week. These Illegal Immigrants will NOT have to work nearly so many hours to qualify. Some can even work LESS then part time hours to be eligible for Amnesty / Citizenship. Many of these Illegals will get "Earned Income Tax Credits ( US Tax Dollars paid to THEM, even those they were here Illegally !! ) All their family members, 30-45 Million of them will be eligible for fast paced entry into the USA and hooked into our Social Services and other Tax Paid benefit systems. These family members in turn, will be able to bring in their family members in the future ( fast Paced over those waiting legally ).

NO AMNESTY, NO CITIZENSHIP FOR THOSE WHO BROKE US LAW. NO MORE ANCHOR BABIES ( Abuse of 14th Amendment ) . Dont be fooled by ANY name its called. If its a benefit not offered to EVERY SINGLE PERSON wanting a US Citizenship ( in the WORLD ) then its Amnesty !!!! American Citizens will NEVER be fooled by our Politicians again. Honor your 1986 Promise of NO MORE AMNESTIES and dont try to make fools out of American Citizens again.... Build the FENSE NOW and STOP trying to slow down protections for US Citizens.
