GRAMM MOVES TO SELL OUT U.S. SAYS VOICE OF CITIZENS TOGETHER
Legalization of millions of Mexicans called treason
(SHERMAN OAKS) -- According Voice of Citizens Together, U.S. Senator Phil Gramm's role in leading five Senators ("The Grammnesty Five"), Zell Miller (D-GA), Gramm( R-Tx), Pete Domenici (R-NM), Jim Bunning (R-KY), Mike Crapo (R-ID), to Mexico City to propose amnesty for seven million bordered on treason.
The Associated Press reported as follows.
"Their most significant achievement, they [Gramm and the others] said, was unanimous support for a new guest-worker program for Mexicans that would have the effect of granting amnesty to those currently working illegally in the country - up to 7 million people - while allowing others to apply for work from Mexico in the future."
In 1997, Mexican president Zedillo told the National Council of La Raza, "I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders." The Mexican consul general of Los Angeles has said that Mexico was practicing "La Reconquista in California" (NY Times, April 14, 1998). In 1999 Governor Gray Davis of California said, "In the near future, people will look upon California and Mexico as one magnificent region." Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democrat Party once said "Proposition 187 is the last gasp of white America in California."
According to Glenn Spencer, president of VCT, "The legalization of Mexicans would ultimately create more than 10 million new voters"voters whose allegiance would be to Mexico, not the United States of America," Spencer said. "If we fail to deport illegal Mexicans and instead grant them permanent residency, Mexico City will have more power over parts of our country than Washington, D.C., and we will lose our sovereignty."
Spencer said that in 1993 Gramm promised that NAFTA would bring an end to illegal immigration. The record shows it has failed to do so. "Gramm's NAFTA succeeded in bringing millions of Mexicans to the U.S. border creating an environmental, social and national security nightmare," Spencer said. "Gramm was wrong about NAFTA and he is wrong about legalization. He is compounding his 1993 NAFTA error with total capitulation in 2001."
According to Spencer, Mexico has been trying to impose its jurisdiction over the Southwest ever since the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo which ended the Mexican war. "Mexico has never accepted that treaty and, aided by the Ford Foundation, the Catholic Church, dual citizenship, the AFL/CIO, and now Phil Gramm, they have come a long way toward declaring victory over the United States," Spencer said.
According to Spencer, "The people of the United States of America need to know that some politicians are acting against the interests of their nation in favor of Mexican hegemony." "Those who aid Mexico's invasion are committing treason."
"This is a test of George W. Bush." Spencer said. "If he supports this proposal, I for one will seek out a third party and never look back."
