I am sending this to all the political groups and church groups who want to give amnesty to the 25 million illegal aliens in America. This is the Oath of Allegiance that foreign citizens are required to swear when they become naturalized.

"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."

Why don't these groups want tens of millions of illegal aliens to swear the same Oath of Allegiance that naturalized citizens must take? Is it the phrase "bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law?" If these tens of millions of illegal aliens are given amnesty they won't be subject to the draft, they won't have to renounce Mexican, Honduran, El Salvadoran or Guatemalan citizenship. Do these groups want their church members to be given blanket deferment to avoid the draft in another time of war through amnesty?
