Below is the trailer for They Come to America 2:
This showing comes as the US House of Representatives takes up their version of an immigration bill. The US Senate passed their version under the leadership of Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Rep. Michael Burgess (Texas District 26) believes “legalizing 11 million immigrants will undercut wages of blue-collar Americans.” In a USA Today column Burgess states, “In my opinion, the Senate’s amnesty-first immigration bill is not in the country’s best interest. Talking about immigration reform raises several questions. Does it make us more secure? The border security provisions in the Senate bill don’t actually secure our border. A lot of grand claims, but so many purposeful loopholes and waivers ensure they will have marginal effect. In fact, just like the 1986 amnesty, it almost guarantees that we will be having this same debate again in 10 years.”
The controversial Senate bill gives amnesty (in the form of green cards) to all illegals in the United States. Florida will be especially impacted as according to FAIR report it costs the state over $5 billion annually to incarcerate, medicate and educate illegal aliens.
Stephen Dinan from The Washington Times reports, “The Obama administration is deporting fewer people than it did in 2011 or 2012, but has ousted more than 110,000 illegal immigrants this year who didn’t have criminal records, according to statistics that call into question the Obama administration’s public statements about its deportation policies … Although the drop isn’t steep, the trend suggests that the administration is finding it increasingly difficult to meet its goal of deporting 400,000 people a year while focusing chiefly on the most dangerous immigrants.”
According to Dinan:
They show that through June 1 , ICE had deported 246,333 immigrants, which is a dip in the total number of deportations from the 264,518 recorded at this point in 2011 or the 275,067 at this point in 2012.
Of those deported this year, 55 percent had criminal records. That is higher than the 53 percent in 2012, but less than the 56.7 percent in 2011. Read more.
Therein lies the center of the controversy – border security.
