Want Mass Amnesty? Elect a Democratic Congress

Edwards Jr., James R.
October 2006
Human Events;10/2/2006, Vol. 62 Issue 33, p9
The author argues that the only thing standing between the country and mass amnesty is the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives. House and Senate Democrats, some Senate Republicans, and the administration of President George W. Bush will then be able to force alien legalization, four times greater than the supposedly one-time-only mass amnesty of 1986. While the House passed a strong enforcement-only bill, many senators proved themselves out of touch with political reality.
