Bait & Switch: Lott, Kyl and Graham Sell U.S. Out for Amnesty S1348

Thursday, June 14, 2007

Yeah I’m tired of writing about it too. Be very aware that Harry Reid will be bringing the Immigration Reform Bill S1348 back to the Senate floor next week. Once again the Senators have been meeting behind close doors to beat out a compromise on the compromise Amnesty plan.

Republican leaders have promised to produce enough votes to curtail debate on the bill and proceed to final passage. Last week’s impasse arose after Reid twice failed to collect the 60 votes necessary to limit debate and move toward final passage.

Don’t be fooled by all the hyperbole on stronger enforcement. Today’s news about the 4.4 billion dollars suddenly becoming available to secure our southern border is as big a sham as this shamnesty bill! The treasury will be payed back from the fines collected from the illegal aliens who register AFTER the bill is signed.

Once again call your Senators and tell them what you think of them and this lousy bill. Call: 800-862-5530.

One of the strongest opponents to the bill is Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) and here is what he said:

“I appreciate the effort to fund border security, but there’s simply no reason why we should be forced to tie amnesty to it. If the administration was serious about fulfilling the border security promises, then this funding should have been supported all along, not offered at the last minute to attract votes to a bad bill.”

“We have a serious problem with our immigration system, but this mess of a bill is not the solution. It puts amnesty before security, contains loopholes for criminals, and will increase the burden on taxpayers.”

“All of the border security triggers in this bill can already be implemented under current law. It is unfortunate that the bill supporters continue to hold border security hostage in return for passage of amnesty. Instead, they need to prove to the American people that they will secure the border first.”

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC)

No more sitting on our collective asses – to the battlements again my patriots. We have to defend our country from these idiots who don’t care about you, only themselves.

Call your Senators and tell them what you think of them and this lousy bill. Call: 800-862-5530.
