How Democrats Sponsored Illegal Immigration

In his Great Society speech delivered at the U. of Michigan in Ann Arbor, President Johnson revealed the policy direction that was to result in the emigration of Hispanic undocumented immigrants to the U.S.

That 11 million illegal immigrants are present in the U.S. is taken as proof that the system doesn’t work. The immigration system is broken, we are told, and in need of reform. But the truth is, those 11 million illegal immigrants did not enter through the system, they violated U.S. law when they bypassed standard immigration procedures. It’s important to note that they were not encouraged by business to cross the border; they were aggressively supported by government officials.

While the Constitution gives Congress the exclusive power to establish a uniform set of rules for naturalization, in reality government entities at all levels have been directly involved in the enablement and promotion of illegal immigration. These administrative actions have been stealthily passed and to this day are not publicly discussed. Politicians only discuss issues of “immigration reform” or border security.

The first official act that bypassed Congress’s power to control immigration was the Bracero program, a guest worker program started under FDR in 1942. This program was not voted into law by Congress, it was an agreement made between the U.S. Ambassador in Mexico City and the Mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs. The Bracero program had much success and lasted until 1964 , when it was canceled by President Johnson just months before he announced the creation of the Great Society programs of Federal benefits.
