S.1348 – details of Z Visa

20 05 2007

FAIR gives us some details on the Z visa contained in the Senate immigration bill (S.1348).

However, the details of this Senate compromise prove that it is nothing more than an amnesty. The language creates a “Z” visa program for illegal aliens and illegal aliens only. Specifically, the Senate deal:

  • Provides that Z visas last for 4 years and may be renewed indefinitely.
  • Waives numerous criminal provisions for eligibility purposes and no medical exam is needed up front.
  • Requires state and local governments are required to assist illegal aliens in providing documentation to support a Z visa application as a condition of receiving state impact assistance money.
  • Immediately grants probationary benefits (including work authorization, protection from removal, and a social security number) based only on an application and a 24-hour wait on a background check. Probationary benefits are not affected by the “trigger” in Title I of the bill.

“Nothing more than amnesty”? “Amnesty” used to mean forgiving enemy sympathizers of a war now over, while leaving all laws against treason in place. Now it seems to mean changing a stupid law, if it shows the slightest sympathy for illegals. Every time you change a law, you redefine who is a lawbreaker. That is not called “amnesty”. That is called “changing a law”. The stupider the law, the more reason to change it. See http://www.Saltshaker.US/HispanicHope/Amnesty.htm
