Borderline insanity.

ITEM: "The U.S.'s borders, rather than becoming more secure since 9/11, have grown even more porous," reported a September 20 Time cover story. "It's fair to estimate ... that the number of illegals flooding into the U.S. this year will total 3 million.... While the vast majority are Mexicans, a small but sharply growing number come from other countries, including those with populations hostile to the U.S."--such as Afghanistan, Bulgaria, Russia, China, Egypt, Iran, and Iraq.

Time pointed out that in January, President Bush announced a "guest worker" plan that amounts to an amnesty for illegal aliens, thereby triggering "a run to the border." "All these people say they are coming for the amnesty program," explained Arizona rancher George Morin, referring to the overwhelming influx of illegal immigrants.

AHEAD OF THE CURVE: For the better part of two decades, THE NEW AMERICAN has described the unremitting invasion by illegal aliens and examined both the federal policies and subversive groups abetting that invasion. In our January 12, 2004 issue, published weeks in advance of the president's amnesty announcement, Senior Editor William E Jasper predicted "a big move this year to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens." A subsequent cover story entitled "Amnesty and Betrayal" (February 9 issue) noted that an "'amnesty rush' is underway elsewhere as millions--or tens of millions--of others race to take advantage of the Bush plan."

In a November 3, 2003 story entitled "Rewarding Lawlessness," we noted the ironic impact of Bush administration immigration policies on our national security: "More than two years after Black Tuesday, our nation's borders remain terrifyingly insecure, and our anemic economy continues to shed manufacturing jobs. We cited an observation by U.S. Park Service Ranger Bo Stone, who works along the U.S.-Mexico border: "We have caught people from China, Pakistan and Yemen coming through.... If 1,000 illegal immigrants can walk through the desert here, so can 1,000 terrorists."
