We have more work cut out for us – the Senate immigration bill is not dead after all…more debate begins today. Senator Chambliss still claims that border security is his main concern, but do not let that fool you into thinking he won’t cave beforehand. He helped create this bill, afterall. Check out the spin below:
Both senators have made clear that they don’t like all aspects of the bill, which President Bush also supports. But they have insisted that it is far better than allowing the current system to continue and said it is the best compromise available…
See? They like it, but they don’t like it. It’s all about compromise, right? Wrong. Do not forget that both Isakson and Chambliss are being influenced by their agriculture buddies:
U.S. senators from across the nation could enjoy the sweet taste of Vidalia onions, thanks to gifts this week from Georgia Sens. Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss. The pair delivered 2,000 pounds of the local crop to all 100 Senate offices.
Tell me, readers – who do you think picks these onions? I’ll give you a guess: they’re not American.
So, let us flashback to the year 1998, when our beloved Senator Chambliss said immigration officers were using ‘bullying tactics’ while enforcing immigration laws on the vidalia onion fields.
Hmmm…Chambliss and Isakson want the border enforced, but do not want enforcement of existing immigration law?
Give me a break. Let us not be fooled into thinking that this vidalia onion delivery is an innocent ‘gift.’ Especially since the packages were carefully shipped and received on the very week that immigration reform is being discussed. Let us call it what it really is: A bribe. And another way to show the fat cats in Washington how illegal immigrants put more money in THEIR back pockets.
Nevertheless, if there is any good that can come out of this mess, it is the fact that Georgian’s are NOT accepting of this bill and are finally standing up and saying something about it:
Chambliss, just as he gears up for a re-election bid next year, has found himself in the unusual position of taking strong criticism from the right. He
was booed at a state Republican convention last month, and conservatives have
protested outside his offices in Georgia. [Thank you, D.A. King!] Even his Democratic opponents have called Chambliss soft on the issue.
Yes, it’s true – your phone-calling has made an impact, even though Chambliss claims he’s able to talk Georgian’s into being more accepting of the legislation:
…he acknowledged that most of the feedback he’s received has been negative as he spent part of an afternoon answering angry calls to his office recently. But he said the outrage frequently softens when he explains the proposal in detail.
And here’s the kicker, the paper continues to report on this bill as if the illegal immigrant has no other way to become a citizen:
…Among other things, the bill would tighten borders while giving many of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the country a pathway to legal status.
‘A’ pathway to legal status? These people have many pathways to legal status already, they just choose not to use them!
The illegal immigrant announces time and again that their alliegence is to Mexico. Yet, they come here to make the most money in the quickest way possible. Illegal immigration. Robbery. Drug dealing. Rape. It is all about finding the quickest profit – damn all other consequence. This is the mindset that defines most criminality, and now your government wants to reward it.
Obviously, something has to be done. Right now, Osama bin Laden could cross into the United States from Mexico disguised as a bean-picker and no one would be the wiser. But we are not about to deport 12 million illegal aliens out of the United States. No way. Special-interest groups, businesses who depend on cheap labor — including a bunch in Georgia — union organizers and political parties who are courting the Hispanic vote aren’t going to let it happen. Self-interest comes first in this country. You can go to the bank on that political fact.
