Compromise Immigration Bill S1348 is a Load of Crock

Sunday, May 20, 2007

Update: 5/28/07 The Senate is still debating this bill and will continue into the first week of June. Continue calling your Senator and Representative in Washington or while they are back in their home state this week. Let them know what you think – your pressure will help stop this bill!

Here is a complete list of the Senators who Support this piece of crap: Senators Supporting Immigration Bill S1348  

The full draft of the celebrated compromise Immigration Bill S1348 is now available for review. The bill has 832 sections and will total about 1000 pages when the government printing office is done. Harry Reid will be trying to get a vote of Cloture on Monday, May 21st — 60 votes to limit consideration and fast track it for a final vote.

I have been diligently wading through this mess of legislation but I’m sure that 99% of the Senators won’t even give it a glance and will have no clue of it’s contents by the time there is a roll call vote.

That’s why it’s important for you to keep the pressure on your Senators and continue to call and tell them to VOTE NO!

Here is what I discovered:

The Border Fence:

The 700 miles of Border Fence approved in October of 2006 has shrunk down to less than 370 miles, including what’s already in place and about 200 miles of roads with vehicle barriers. The rest of it is the “virtual fence”, but there was no clear explanation of exactly how that will be accomplished.

More Border Agents:

The Border Patrol will not be increased until 2008 and only by 2000. There will be an additional increase of 2400 a year from 2009 through 2012 for a total increase in five years of 11,600 more agents.

I don’t see any language stating that the Southern or Northern Border will be sealed from illegal entry. In fact there’s this:

Detention of Illegals Entering and Re-Entering the U.S.:

“Beginning on October 1, 2008, an alien (other than a national of Mexico) who is attempting to illegally enter the United States and who is apprehended at a United States port of entry or along the international land and maritime border of the United States shall be detained until removed or a final decision granting admission has been determined.”

Tha detention of illegals has a sliding scale of jail time based on the number of times they are caught re-entering the U.S. It’s very vague on deportation even for what the bill calls “criminal aliens in Federal and State correctional facilities”.

New Illegal Detention Facilities:

In fact it looks as if they expect to detain more illegals in the U.S. by constructing Detention Facilities on closed military bases:

“The Secretary shall construct or acquire, in addition to existing facilities for the detention of aliens, at least 20 detention facilities in the United States that have the capacity to detain a combined total of not less than 20,000 individuals at any time for aliens detained pending removal or a decision on removal of such aliens from the United States subject to available appropriations.”

New “Passport Cards”?

There is a section on new “Passport Cards” that will replace the standard Passport. They are slipping this in, without public discussion. What other surprises are here that we are just reading about?

Section #776 – Access to the Statue of Liberty?

“Not later than 60 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of the Interior shall ensure that all persons who satisfy reasonable and appropriate security measures shall have full access to the public areas of the Statue of Liberty, including the crown and the stairs leading to the crown.”

No mention of the “Z-Visas” (**See Below) only “Conditional Permanent Resident Status“. No language on how they will enforce any of this in a Sanctuary City, like Los Angeles, New York, Boston etc. They could force the end of these Illegal Alien havens by refusing to give those cities Federal funds. Talking about funds, it’s estimated that it will cost 2 to 3 Trillion dollars for this Amnesty bill. That’s not even hinted at in Bill S1348 — it’s all smoke and mirrors.

 

Hit those phones and give them hell — Say NO to Amnesty to the 20 million Illegal Aliens !

    Hi –
    Can you name a good link on the costs – especially for the 2 trillion number. It’s cited widely as being from Heritage and including tax estimates, but I would like a better link than the one I have.

    Border fence? Fully loaded Predator UAVs work. Illegal alien amnesty? Uhm, we’re at war. “Illegal alien” can also be defined as “foreign invader”. They are not in uniform, therefore are not covered by Geneva OR Hague Conventions, and may be executed immediately upon discovery by ANY citizen.

    In my humble opinion,
    Anybody that crosses the line to USA should show a legal passport. What is wrong doing it right? The law was created to avoid CHAOS! (Disorder, confusion disarray) How can anybody agree for 12 million undocumented aliens take the identity of innocent legal US Citizens! Then, assume that half of these 12 million undocumented aliens are women and each is pregnant THIS COUNTRY automatically gives them MEDI-CAL for the mother and the unborn child. Then continue for the next 18 years! And these women not only have one child… They keep having children to keep sucking from Medi-cal! HEALTH CARE THAT US CITIZENS don’t have! And if the children are born retarded they also qualify for SSI (Social Security Income!) And when they have children they also qualify for Section 8, (almost free housing!) And the offspring of all these undocumented are “AMERICANS” raised with an arrogant attitude that they feel they own USA with rights to graffiti and deface private property, trash and pollute our public parks, kill, rape, and steal from other humans just because they were born in USA! Is Nice to be lenient, loving and compassionate to the weak, but LET’S NOT BE STUPID and take control of our country NOW! ARE WE ALSO GIVING FREE FUNDS FOR COLLEGE TO ILLEGALS! We are STUPID! With capital “D” for DEMOCRATS! (Sorry, but all you want is to suck from others that work hard) In my humble opinion,
