Take a stroll down “it’s not amnesty” memory lane with this short video produced two years ago by FAIR and noted  by Frontpage magazine. In it you can watch the actual sales pitch for amnesty in the United States House of Representatives from 1986, and you can hear the slogans and contrived talking points of the day.

See if they don’t sound rather familiar.

Thrill to seeing a younger Chuck Schumer explain that the only answer is legalization and that the illegal aliens are victims. Try hard to remember that the American people were promised that the 1986 legalization was a “one time” event and would solve the problem forever.

While you watch, try hard to convince yourself that anybody selling amnesty this year has any more intention of keeping their word than in the 80’s.

Try to convince yourself that were the Rubio/Schumer amnesty scam to pass , the illegal alien lobby would stop being the illegal alien lobby.

Try to convince yourself that we really need the 33 million new low-wage job seekers the Senate amnesty bill would bring in during the next decade.

Try hard to forget that it is a coalition of big-business and the tribalists in the radical left who sponsor these charlatans.

Try to convince yourself that Marco Rubio is really an honorable, conservative man with the best interests of the USA in mind when he shills for Schumer and another amnesty.

Try to convince yourself that this time, it would be different…

See the post above by the Azlan superiority Latino who acknowledges that Mexicans do not recognize the rights and property of Gringos because they own this land.

Too bad they are too stupid or too lazy to solve the problems in their own country.

Wages for jobs illegals have invaded have plummeted and yet they are able to send billions back to what they consider their home countries. And although Roswell by 2010 census has 16% Latino residents, not one attended among the thousands at the memorial.

@Pat H:

I attended a Memorial Day celebration in Atlanta, I saw at least 50 people of Latino heritage, some, both men and women were in uniform (American miitary uniforms). Because you saw no person of Latino heritage in Roswell, you automatically think there are none who are grateful US citizens who have or are proudly serving our country in order to keep us free and give you the right to be so wrong.

It should be no wonder why so many think the right wingers are so shallow headed.

We, the citizen-taxpayers, have been subsidizing the labor force and as a result the CEO salaries have risen to a mean over 9 million per year (see story under business in MDJ).

The illegals made legal do not pay taxes and they also do not pick lettuce. You will see them in meat processing plants, construction sites and manufacturing still left here. Salaries of those who used to make a decent living in the meat processing plants, for instance, have plummeted. So have construction workers, which used to be skilled labor jobs, now performed by recent illegals who never lived in a house let alone built one.

At the Memorial Day service in Roswell, home of many Hispanics legal and illegal, not one Hispanic was seen in the crowd. Where are their loyalties to our great soldiers who sacrificed for this great country?

@DA: This article has been up for 8 days, I am the only post to date.

Same old songs get monotonous, even to those who agree with you.
