Incomprehensibly stupid. Those are the only words that adequately describe any plan that would reward millions of criminals here illegally with the most prized possession on this planet: U.S. citizenship.
In terms of raw numbers, the 12-20 million illegal aliens currently in the United States EXCEED the population of every individual state, excepting only California.
See here for individual state by state statistics.
Does it make any sense for America to add what would essentially be a 51st state, comprised of third-world, impoverished, uneducated, and non-English speaking criminals?
A 51st state where many of the criminals actually believe that Mexico stills owns the Southwest portion of the U.S., and that we “gringos” should be forced out?
A state where the Mexican flag would be more esteemed that the Red, White and Blue of Old Glory?
Consider how the number of illegal aliens in America compare with the population in some foreign nations:
See here for population listings by nation:
Can America afford to take in a population of uneducated peasants equal to the entire nation of Australia?
67 percent the population of Canada?
Or five times the population of Ireland?
And if our government would do something so utterly stupid, how long would it take for an additional 20 million illegals to invade?
We the people must not tolerate any hair-brained scheme that would make illegal aliens greater in number that any single state except California.
Stop amnesty now!
