For those against the Amnesty Bill….?

Like some shambling undead Thing from a horror movie, the amnesty bill we all thought buried with a stake in its heart has been resurrected. Once again it’s headed to the senate floor to wreak havoc. But this is the kind of summer sequel most people don’t want to see. Neither Democrats nor Republicans in Washington seem to understand — or care — how unhappy the American people are about this bill.
And we are unhappy about it… Many Americans are outraged by the idea of rewarding criminals by allowing them to keep what they took. While hundreds of thousands of people around the world patiently await permission to come to this country, or go home when their visas expire, illegals decided the rules didn’t apply to them. Allowing them to become permanent residents violates our sense of fair play almost as much as it violates our laws. We’re assured that they will be at the "back of the line" for citizenship… but that line is supposed to form on the other side of the border.
We’re unhappy about rewarding criminal behavior. We’re told that these illegals should be honored because they wanted to become Americans so badly that many of them risked death to come here. (We’ll just ignore the fact that money was probably the real motivation for most of them.) But becoming American must include showing some regard for American sovereignty, and American laws. Those who deliberately crossed our borders illegally or overstayed their visas did not show that respect. Many ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS falsify records and documents on a daily basis, supply false Social Security numbers to employers, and lie to obtain drivers’ licenses, credit cards and other documents. Moreover, those hundreds of thousands who marched protesting law enforcement waving mexican flags and holding signs saying "This is our continent not yours" didn’t appear to want to become Americans, did they? Why should we reward them for that?
We don’t like the idea of creating a huge permanent underclass of low-level workers, either. Once granted legal status, all those people doing "jobs Americans won’t do" won’t want to do them either — not at the low wages they’re currently paid. They’ll want better jobs, with better pay. Prices for agricultural products and construction will rise as employers are forced to pay minimum wage, but that’s not the worst effect of a mass legalisation. Competition for available jobs in other areas will rise sharply. Competition for many blue-collar jobs will force wages to dip towards minimum wage level, creating a sharper division between blue-collar and white-collar workers, or lower class and middle class. Unemployment and entitlements will rise, and taxes will follow. Class warfare and envy politics fueled by racial divisions — the staples of Democratic campaigns — will escalate, granting the Democrats a huge vote windfall for many years to come. The fact that so many Republicans (including the President himself) are willing to sign the death warrant of their own party is amazing.
Many people are unhappy about this bill because of the way members of Congress and the President tried to shove it through the Senate quickly, without time for the bill to be amended before debate. The Bill was introduced on Thursday 17 May, and a vote to open debate on the final version was scheduled for Monday 21 June. The bill was not even written in final form until that Sunday, and most Senators hadn’t even seen it by the time they were expected to vote, much less had time to draft amendments. Public outcry pushed back the vote to give Senators time to propose amendments and gauge public opinion. After the move for cloture — an attempt to bring the bill up for a vote — failed, the bill was removed from the floor. But President Bush, when attacking opponents of the bill didn’t work, pushed his supporters in the Senate to bring it back after adding some money for border security — the security that was mandated in a bill last year, and about which nothing much was done.
But it’s still the same terrible bill, which grants a de facto amnesty to millions of criminal trespassers (no matter what its proponents want to call it), allowing them to stay as permanent residents and bring tens of millions of new immigrants into the country. Thanks to Liberal "multiculturalism," many of those people will never integrate into American society. It’s like a home invasion on a massive scale, while the government’s response is to tell us we just have to live with our new housemates. And the border fence that was mandated in the Secure Fence Act of 2006 is still not built, which means that in another decade or so, we’ll have to go through all of this again. Before we decide what to do about the estimated 12-20 million illegal immigrants in this country, we have got to ensure that it’s the last time we have to deal with the problem.
Back in 1986, we were told that we would have real border security, in exchange for a one-time amnesty. Well, the politicians got their one-time amnesty. Now, we want our security.
Yeah, I realize its long, but its OUR country, and its worth it…
Hey Spazz or Spass or whatever your calling your next account that will pop up with the same question….you are so funny, wow….ya know what? Just call your senator and say no to the bill…ok?
Let me tell you this…The ILLEGAL mexicans are actually laughing at people like you. They will get as many Stupid American citizens to fight for their cause and when they inevitably take over the country, you will be singing a different tune. Let me ask YOU this….How does it make you feel when they go around waving their flag, burning our flag, and demanding that we speak their language let alone saying that this continent belongs to them….Let me ask you this? How fair is it that other LEGAL immigrants worked hard and patiently waited for their citizenship, only to have this crap thrown in their faces? These are people who fought/worked and sweat off their backs for this country, only to have these disease spreading roaches want to take credit? I think not… OH and let me TELL you this, I will GLADLY welcome a price raise in milk and Macdonalds burgers as long as they arent touching it with their dirty ecoli spreading hands….notice the increase in disease lately?

Well stated. I completely agree with you.. Also, if this thing passes, imigrants are going to be flooding in and claiming amnesty. I’m kind of scared of all the chaos that will ensue.

    Email your senators NOW and tell them you’ll vote them out of office if they vote for this.

    Yes, they told us the same lies about border security to get the amnesty passed in 1986.

    Deb:: they listened to us on the last go-round for this bill. Just try one more time.

    For over 25 years I have phoned and written my Congressmen, state legislators, city councilmen, governors and mayors over bills and other issues.

    Well, they’ve never listened to me and have always done as they damn well please.

    It literally hurts my soul to see what those corrupt B*(*&(*&Ds are doing to this country. They’ve sold themselves to the devil and us along with them.

    Its time for a younger generation to take up the fight. I give up.

    Yeah, sure, and just which of our lousy senators do you think will listen to your wishes and vote accordingly? Answer, none !
    Once in office they forget and ignore the reason they’re there and who put them in that position. So dream on.

    I called and emailed Boxer, I faxed Feinstein.

    And once isn’t enough. The bill has been delayed until Wednesday by the opposition, and we need to make the most of that delay.

    It is people like you, who swallow the bogeyman tales whole, that could undermine what this country stands for if they were taken seriously. Thankfully, it appears that our senators are thinking patriotically of the greater good instead. For once!

    "Shambling undead thing"?? Toooo funny.

    Most experts agree that this bill would decrease illegal immigration by no more than 18%. This bill makes American citizens pay a lot for very little. Also, the latest figures regarding the tax benefits of illegal aliens indicate that the only positive benefit is at the federal level. State and local governments are losing badly with the extra financial burden being place on schools and services. I sent emails to the idiots representing my state and district. However, I feel that writing your Senator or Representative is like trying to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and it annoys the pig.

    Pres. Bush doesn’t believe in this bill. He has been so good about sticking to his guns even in the face of opposition for almost seven years, and now this. I am terribly disappointed in this man who I have championed since the beginning. This is a last ditch attempt to sidle up to the Democrats who are invading the House and Senate like a disease. What small percentage of the population who were still supporting Bush are now hanging our heads, ashamed that our President is selling out. Want a President candidate who really understands how we as Americans feel about immigration, amnesty, and securing our borders? Fred Dalton Thompson.
    Listen to him, read his words. He gets it. Pray he throws his hat into the ring.
    And please do contact your representatives. Scream NOOO!!!!! to this tripe! This is not what we want, not now, not ever!

    Let me ask you this? If we kick out all the Mexicans, are you prepared for the resulting price increases? Do you know how much poverty you will create when milk is 8 dollars a gallon, or strawberries 10 dollars for a small box? How about when the dollar menu becomes the 5 dollar menu?

    People who are against the bill fail to understand just how much we use and abuse these people to get the low prices we want. We won’t do there jobs, we don’t want there jobs, that’s why they came here because they would kill for the 5.15 McDonalds pays, and we spit on it. I bet "McJob" isn’t a word in Spanish. Think about that. You can’t have it both ways, you can’t low prices and a highly paid work force of skilled labor.
