Obama's Next Agenda .....Amnesty

Democrat introduces SEIU-backed illegal alien amnesty bill

The SEIU needs more dues-paying members.

The open-borders lobby needs something to do.

Immigration bill backers try again despite jobless rate

Washington Times

Democrats on Tuesday begin their new push for an immigration bill, hamstrung by the image of legalizing millions of illegal immigrant workers at a time when the unemployment rate stands at 10 percent — more than twice what it was the last time Congress tried to act.
“It certainly will confuse the debate a lot more, but at the end of the day what we have to understand is fixing this system will be good for American workers,” said Eliseo Medina, executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, which is one of the major advocates for legalizing illegal immigrant workers.
Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, the Illinois Democrat who has taken over leadership on the issue after the death of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, plans to introduce an immigration legalization bill Tuesday, and backers are planning a strategy to avoid repeats of the failed attempts of 2006 and 2007.

The bill would torpedo the joint federal-local deportation program known as 287(g) and opposes beefing up our land borders with more Border Patrol agents or fencing.

SEIU has been lobbying for illegal alien amnesty as a massive membership booster all year. In May, the Purple Shirts held a pro-illegal immigration rally from Malcolm X Park to the White House to put pressure on homeland security officials to call off workplace raids (not that Janet Napolitano needed any convincing):

Denver photojournalist El Marco was at the event and has an amazing pictorial essay detailing how Pelo-cchio’s Astroturf brigade had to be coached by professional organizers — including several day laborers who didn’t speak English and couldn’t tell what the signs they were holding read. And they accuse Tea Party folks of being puppets?!

Wild Thing's comment..........

I wonder if we ever again will have a President who enforces the laws, including those that tell him to deport illegals back to their home countries.

And I am sure Geraldo is having massive tingles up his legs after hearing this news.

They might just push this through precisely because they know their jobs could be on the line.

Every precious vote they can get will count toward keeping them in power which seems to matter to them far more than the dire unemployment figures and the suffering of millions of their constituents which they caused. They want those because they need the Democratic votes. Illegals, if made citizens, would vote Democrat.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Everything with this administration is broken. Problem is their propsed fixes always cost us taxpayers more money and the problem never seems to go away. It only gets worse and cost us more money.

Is there a pattern here ?

The Democrats' reasons for amnesty are certainly not humanitarian. They are seeking more votes.

Mark, yes there sure is a pattern.

Tom, that is exactly what they are going
