WTF! I Thought We Didn't Negotiate With Terrorists

The students have been marching in opposition to a House bill, passed in December, cracking down on illegal immigration, making it a federal offense to enter the country illegally.

On Mondaqy, March 27th, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved election-year immigration legislation Monday that clears the way for millions of undocumented workers to seek U.S. citizenship without having to first leave the country. The committee also voted to strip out proposed criminal penalties for residents found to be in this country illegally.

"All Americans wanted fairness and they got it this evening," said Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (news, bio, voting record), the Massachusetts Democrat who played a pivotal role in drafting the legislation, approved 12-6.

Wild Thing's comment.......Fairness? You call this fair? To have our leaders breaking PAST laws to kiss up to those entering this country illegally?? Give me a freaken break!

Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa., voted for the bill but signaled that some of the provisions could well be changed by the full Senate.

In general, the bill is designed to strengtehn border patrol, create new opportunities for so-called guest workers and determine the legal future of the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally.

At several critical popints, committee Democrats were united while Republicans splintered. In general, GOP Sens. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, Sam Brownback of Kansas and Mike DeWine of Ohio, who is seeking re-election this fall, sided with Democrats.

Wild Thing's comment.....Thanks to the RHINO's that helped this illegal bill pass so far. What the hell is happening in this country???!!!!!

That gave Democrats a majority that allowed them to shape the bill to their liking.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Tea and cookies shaped like donkey's were served after the vote on the patio, as conservative's blood pressure rose to new heights. This is crap and I hope those Republicans that voted for this never see re-election! Those of us who want America to remain a first world country will go to the mattresses on this!

We all knew this was coming there were plenty of warning signs, speeches, quotes etc. about this. Many of us wrote, phoned, faxed those in leadership telling them how we felt along the way. Was our voice heard? The 'we the people' voice that should exist, was it heard? Nope, nada, obviously not. Did we get a chance even to vote on it, to voice our opinion on how we felt. Of course not, that would mean failure to those wanting to pass this thing, to favor the illegals.

Yes I know our vote for those in government means they are to vote for us on things like this. But hey we vote with a knowledge that Mr. X agree's with us vs. Mr.Y and Mr. Z that do not. So somewhere along the road to Washington,D.C. after stopping for a Starbuck's and a pit stop, Mr. X warmed up to Mr. Y and Mr.Z and what we wanted is in a trash bin in the old LAWS of this Land file that were not enforced.

* Michelle Malkin

And once again:

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

As much as I support president Bush, I often wonder what he would have been like without the the war on Terrorism. Would he have openly supported the Ted Kennedy's in office? John McCain has shown his true colors on several fronts, he truely is the Manchurian candidate and willingly supports the Communist elements of our government. I'm disgusted with the whole lot and I will vote them out in protest of their forfeiture of our freedom and our sovereignty. We've had enough of the RINO's.

Yes Jack,I know how you feel.

I voted and campaigned for Bush both times. I have been a Republican all my life and will continue to be one. To be anything else goes against all I am to the bone. But at the same time I am not a sheep like Democrats are and if I don't like something being done I will always speak up.

One time one of my nephews (he is a Democrat) said to me..... Aunt Chrissie you sound like you do not like your party.

I told him no you are wrong. If I had children and one of them did something wrong I would not stop loving them, but I would tell that child or teen that I did not approve of their behavior.

I knew Bush was pro Mexico on his first term and his second term. But I had hoped that the rest of the Repubican party would stand strong againt Mexico's Fox and not be so willing to break our existing laws or insist on writing new ones when the old ones are not obeyed.

Thank you Jack so much for commenting on this.

I've been a reluctant Bush supporter, chiefly because the opposition is so awful. I think he correctly understood the threat which had been building, and which culminated in the wake-up of 911, but he's bungled everything since.

The War on Terror is a ridiculous description; it means nothing and has muddied our thinking on the war we actually need to fight (against Islamism), and I think it has led to the silly ideas surrounding the faith we have in Middle Eastern democracy.

Moreover, as long as Bush plays host to Vicente Fox, who is the President of a failed state, the policy of which is to export its poverty to the America (and possibly terrorists), he is cuddling a guy who is potentially as dangerous to America as Saddam Hussein was in 2003.

What Bush's sentimental attachment to Fox does is render most of his war policies incoherent and ridiculous. A country that will not defend its own borders should not be waging foreign wars. Period. I'm stil a supporter of the Iraq War, and have three kids involved in it, but my patience and loyalty is subject to some logic, and the logic is gradually slipping away.

Rhod you described it exactly how it is and the ramifications of it as well. Thank you so much for commenting on this.

When Bush was governor in Texas I hoped he would not run for the White House. Why? Because I thought he was like his father, a RINO and error prone. I voted for both Bushs only in the general elections, not in the primary. I think Dubya has been taken to the cleaners by Fox and Putin and others, including liberal democraps.

Sadly, I also think Bush, and many Repubes, have squandered power they had to do things, like control spending and immigration. My fears are that this wasting of opportunities will benefit democraps in the '08 elections. And the Republican Party will be torn apart if McCain makes another run for the presidency. I see no probable Repube candidates right now I would be happy to support.

I agree Tom, the Republicans have most definetely squandered the power that they have. They are in the majority and yet they still don't act like it at all.
Thank you so much for commenting.
