In an interview, Al Franken said that he's a supporter of "comprehensive immigration reform". That phrase is a euphemism used by Bush and the Democrats for a massive illegal alien amnesty combined with a "guest" worker program.
The Bush/Democrats scheme will flood the U.S. with new legal immigrants, particularly through chain migration: family members can invite in other family members, and the latter will invite in family members of their own, on and on and on. An original estimate was close to 100 million new Americans over the next twenty years; that estimate was since reduced to "only" about 65 million.
But, wait, that's not all: millions and millions of potential illegal aliens around the world will see the scheme that Franken supports for what it is: a massive amnesty. And, they'll come a-running.
Think illegal immigration is bad now? Wait until "reform".
Still not convinced? Look into Mexico's constant attempts to meddle in our internal politics, and the political power they have inside the U.S. Several well-known organizations - including the ACLU, SPLC, AFSC, MALDEF, SEIU and more - have indirect links to the Mexican government. Franken's massive amnesty would give that foreign government tremendous pull inside the U.S. and allow them to engage in hitherto unknown level of political influence.
Oh, did I add that all those that would be put on the "path to citizenship" that Franken supports would jump in the citizenship line ahead of those potential legal immigrants who've been waiting patiently in other countries for their chance to come to the U.S.? Yeah, it would screw them too.
Is it that Al can't figure that out, or that he doesn't care?

Golly, I find the loss of Al Franken to Air America sad. However, I am encouraged by his run for the Senate . My brother enjoyed his toors in Iraq and told me that he is quite popular amongst the service men and women.
