We the People...
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said it’s “unlikely” that the Senate would move on immigration reform this year.
Durbin said that a tough political environment, especially for Republicans, made it all but politically impossible to move forward with an immigration bill.
A group of Democratic senators released their outline for comprehensive immigration legislation several weeks ago. That proposal, by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), would emphasize border security before providing a path to U.S. citizenship for illegal immigrants. Reid himself has acknowledged that the current Senate make-up, where Democrats need at least one Republican vote to advance legislation, made immigration reform tougher. But the majority leader had for a time planned to move immigration next, after Democrats wrap up their Wall Street reform bill.
And if you believe that excuse than perhaps we can interest you in some land in the southwest Florida everglades! If all you need is one ANYTHING and you can’t even get that then the root of the problem is far deeper that what Senator Reid is alleging. Furthermore, what does this alleged immigration legislation say? We believe it’s another red herring put forth by the Democrat machine with further misinformation campaigns by special interest / advocacy groups.
The real issue is – not Republican or Democrat or bipartisanship – the issue is political gain for whoever allows amnesty for some 11 to 20 million illegal aliens that have helped themselves to this country.
In addition this issue is very much about spending, spending, and finishing what one has started. It is alleged that Republicans are foot dragging because of border security. Let’s see here – approximately 6 billion dollars has been spent on an incompatible design as put forth by Boeing based on a report – not even a model! How much of the “fence” is actually built? It would be easiest to ask any member of Congress what’s up with the fence; yet, not any two can tell you. Are our borders secured? No!
|Allow us please to vacillate: “Boycotting an entire state that you don’t particularly agree with…” For what we ask? Arizona is merely trying to reinforce a law placed on the books by the 107th Congress which pursuant to United States Code, TITLE 8, CHAPTER 12, SUBCHAPTER II, Part VII §1304(e) and §1306(a); §1304(e) Personal possession of registration or receipt card, penalties;
Every alien, eighteen years of age and over, shall at all times carry with him and have in his personal possession any certificate of alien registration or alien registration receipt card issued to him pursuant to subsection (d) of this section. Any alien who fails to comply with the provisions of this subsection shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall upon conviction for each offense be fined not to exceed $100 or be imprisoned not more than thirty days, or both.
§1306(a) Please see the entire law or section by clicking here.
Closing up for today it has been announced that the infamous Health Care bill, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is now going to cost 100 billion more than what the president and his Democrat cronies stated. Oversight, grotesque oversight that the American people knew would happen; yet they voted on it anyway.
