Here is a site worth checking out: The site offers a series of questions asking the reader if they think particular liberal ideas are productive are not. Upon rating how good or bad of an idea the reader finds each individual liberal idea to be, stats and facts pop up at the bottom of the page citing the predictable epic failures the liberal ideas spawned.

I went through a few of the questions and stumbled upon something interesting I was completely unaware of and would not have expected to read, which leads me to this from

“For over 200 years, the United states only granted amnesty in individual cases and had never given amnesty to large numbers of illegal aliens. Then in 1986, Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) which gave amnesty to all illegal aliens who had evaded law enforcement for at least four years or who were working illegally in agriculture. This resulted in 2.8 million illegal aliens being admitted as legal immigrants to the United States.

Because of chain migration, those granted amnesty have brought in an additional 142,000 dependents - relatives brought in to the United States to join their family members.

The amnesty of 1986 was supposed to be a "one time only" amnesty. Yet since 1986, Congress passed a total of 7 amnesties for illegal aliens:

1. The Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA) Amnesty of 1986 - the "one-time only" blanket amnesty for some 2.8 million illegal aliens.

2. Section 245(i) The Amnesty of 1994 - a temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens.

3. Section 245(i) The Extension Amnesty of 1997 - an extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994.

4. The Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty of 1997 - an amnesty for nearly one million illegal aliens from Central America.

5. The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA) of 1998 - an amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti.

6. The Late Amnesty of 2000 - an amnesty for approximately 400,000 illegal aliens who claimed they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty.

7. The LIFE Act Amnesty of 2000 - a reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty to an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens.”

I had no idea how many illegal aliens had been granted amnesty since 1986, which has led to the growth of the staggering numbers of illegals we currently have. Amnesty for these millions is currently being drafted and when you think of it in exponential terms, the only thing amnesty achieves is encouragement for more illegals to enter America on the backs of the tax-payers.

773.0 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day70.
