The Z Visa And Other Travesties Of The Senate Immigration Bill

Bookmark and Share

Kris Kobach points out the most glaringly ridiculous portions of the Senate amnesty bill.

You call this good for America? Yes, I said "good for America" because that is what United States legislation is supposed to be about. This all sounds like it's good for illegal aliens, not American citizens.

NY Post

1) To qualify for the Z-visa amnesty, an illegal alien need only have a job (or be the parent, spouse, or child of someone with a job) and come up with a scrap of paper suggesting he was in the country before Jan. 1 of this year. Any bank statement, pay stub, or similarly forgeable record will do.


2) Supporters of the bill call the Z visa "temporary" - neglecting to mention that it can be renewed indefinitely until the visa holder dies. Thus, we have the country's first permanent temporary visa. On top of that, it's a super-visa - allowing the holder to work, attend college or do just about anything else.

Are you a law-abiding alien who's interested in switching to this privileged status? Sorry. Only illegal aliens can qualify.

3) Many criminals and terrorists will find it easy to get a Z visa. The bill allows the government only one day to conduct a so-called "background check" on the applicant. If the (already overstretched) feds can't find anything in that single day, the alien gets a probationary visa that lets him roam at will and seek employment legally.


4) The bill effectively shuts down our immigration-court system. If an alien in the removal process is eligible for the Z visa, the immigration judge must close the proceedings and offer the alien the chance to apply for the amnesty. The wheels of justice won't just turn slowly, they'll go in reverse.

5) The bill transforms the federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from a law-enforcement agency into an amnesty-distribution center. If ICE officials apprehend an alien who appears eligible for the Z visa (in other words, just about any illegal alien), they can't detain him. Instead, ICE must help him apply for the Z visa.


6) The bill even lets gang members get the amnesty. This comes at a time when violent international gangs have brought mayhem to our cities. More than 30,000 gang members operate in 33 states, trafficking in drugs, arms and people.

U so need to shut the hell up. I am and illegal alien and i came to this country 6 years ago and I work my butt off offering customer service you never would be able to give - you're not capable off. I have reached a very high position in my job and train almost 250-400 Uinted States citizens how to provide great customer service just cause i go extra mile in anything i do. I also speak, read and write 5 languages - how many do you ??? LOL - i knew it. In any case look at the fact as per how much taxes you are paying for ppl in USA sitting on their ass and not going to work rather than generalize like a school yard kid for everybody in this country.

Oh i'm sorry you have no common sence - i guess I just wasted my time.... SAD

You may just be ignorant of the facts, but Kris Kobach is a professor of constitutional law and currently holds the Daniel L. Brenner Professorship at the University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Law. It doesn't really matter what paper it appears in.

Hello? Citing the White House? Wow, impressive.
