"After 27 years of broken promises in seven amnesties, two other major immigration bills and dozens of pronouncements during presidential and congressional floor speeches, the American people don't deserve to keep their country if they are willing to trust even one more promise about enforcement.

We have learned that the only way to trust that the government will implement enforcement is when it is already implemented."

The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO) issued a press release yesterday urging Republican House leadership to forgo plans for amnesty for the 11 million illegal aliens in the United States. The organization instead, calls for the House to focus on enforcing the nation's laws.

Meanwhile, Rep Luis Gutierrez is doing a victory dance, claiming before an audience at the La Raza convention in New Orleans that he has the 50 GOP votes to pass a bill. (He was not specific about which bill.)
We can only hope Gutierrez is wrong. Amnesty in all its forms is sending the wrong message.
