LawHouse speaker unveils plan to curb illegal immigration in SC (hat tip Mary Chamberlain and Alipac)

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. –House Republican leaders unveiled an immigration reform plan Monday that would bill the federal government for the cost of detaining illegal immigrants and prevent illegals from attending any public college.

“I’ve heard a loud message from South Carolinians all over the state and they are overwhelmingly saying we need to do something,” said House Speaker Bobby Harrell, who estimated 75,000 illegal immigrants in the state.

However, the number of illegal immigrants is difficult to determine.

The latest Census estimate puts South Carolina’s Hispanic and Latino population at roughly 130,000. Advocates say it’s probably more than three times that number.

Changes to the state’s immigration laws have failed to pass the Legislature in recent years.

“We believe the time is now – that the public has made it very clear they want this dealt with,” said Harrell, R-Charleston.

Under the plan, the state would seek an agreement with the federal government to enforce immigration laws and be reimbursed for training officers and detaining illegals. The proposal would also restrict state money for communities declaring themselves sanctuary cities, which aid illegal immigrants without reporting them to the authorities.

There are currently no sanctuary cities in South Carolina.

I keep pointing out Huckabee reminds me of Bill Clinton and now we can add lying to the list…

From The Washington Times:

Mike Huckabee yesterday contradicted his own top immigration surrogate, announcing he will not support a constitutional amendment to end birthright citizenship for children born in the United States to illegal aliens.

Lindsey Graham may be a pro-illegal REPUBLICAN official, but unless you
all realize that the Congress is in charge of making Laws (representing )
“WE, The People”……and that Congress is “DEMOCRATICALLY” controlled.

Simply go to http://www.congressgrades.com and look up any and all of the
Senators records on the immigration page. If their record of voting is
either a “D” , OR an “F”,
you know very simply then, who should be voted (out) of the “PEOPLE’S’ Congress….!!!

If we the People stick together as AMERICANS , rather than Party members,
and voting according….We can get rid of those who refuse to heed their Constituency.
Otherwise there is no need to complain…its really up to you to act…..

Lone Protester- Lindsey Graham Returns to His Roots

06/01/08

The South Carolina State GOP is currently holding its convention in Columbia and Senator Lindsey Graham took time from his busy schedule with John McCain to make an appearance. Without McCain, if you can believe that. According to an article in our local newspaper, our state GOP is very worried that the party has done itself ¡harm¢ in recent years. They used the wrong choice of words when they say that, I think, something like ¡almost destroyed the party¢ fits a just a little bit better. I mean, what more ¡harm¢ can a Republican Senator do that is worse than insulting the people that voted for him? What better way is there to destroy the Republican Party than by turning your back on the people that you are supposed to be representing? What better way to ruin it than by calling the citizens of your state ¡bigots¢?

Congressman Mike Pence was the keynote speaker and he said that Republicans need to return to their roots or risk rejection by the voters. Hey Mike, give them until election day in November to think about it. That way they will have a lot of free time to dwell on why the voters tossed their sorry asses out in the street where they belonged all the time. Hell, we have given them since 2006 to get their act together and they still continue to live in their fantasy version of America where they dictate what will be, instead of listening to the people that own this country. Instead of acting like our servants, which they are by the way, they would be our masters.

Now here is my favorite part of the article, Senator Lindsey Graham of the great state of South Carolina gets up. He agrees that the GOP needs to ¡adjust¢ their leadership. Do not worry one bit, Lindsey, my backstabbing friend, there is going to be a major readjustment in the leadership of the Republican leadership, come November 2008. It is called election day and at the end of it, most of the dirtbags, hopefully will be readjusted and gone. You know the ones that I am talking about? Senator Graham says ¡the problems that Republicans have suffered have been self-inflicted wounds¢. Well, he sure knows what he is talking about here, I mean, what could be more like a self- inflicted wound than telling a racist organization, where he was guest speaker, that he would tell the bigots (us) to shut up. I would say that is a major self-inflicted wound, on the order of a sucking chest wound. How can he tell us to shut up when free speech is guaranteed under the US Constitution, that same document that he swore to when he took office?

I do not know what the Senators answer to that question is, since he doesn¢t have time for us common people. I do know that most of my fellow South Carolinians are fed up with him. If he is smart enough to say that the GOP needs to adjust their leadership, then he should be smart enough to realize that he is major part of the problem. With all the rest of the pseudo-conservatives like him. If they want to continue trying a lighter brand of conservatism, let them, let them lead their party down the road to destruction for a few more months. Because, at the end of the trail, they are going to feel our wrath at the voting booth. And when it is over real conservatism is going to be a majority in the GOP because most of the ash and trash will be gone.

And on June 10th, Senator Graham is going to feel the initial wrath of the citizens of this great state. That is our primary date and we are finally going to get our chance to give him our response to his claims of bigotry. He called us bigots, but we just passed some of the most stringent anti-illegal immigration bills in the country. Without his help by the way, because he was too busy working for the other side. And South Carolina is the state he was supposed to be representing. He is too busy these day, representing the interest of LaRaza and John McCain, than to worry about the people of his state. Remember one thing, Lindsey Graham, on June 10th, your ¡bigots¢ in South Carolina will be giving you our response.

Sad but true. No matter how many generations we worked to make the USA strong, illegals just walk in and suddenly have free healthcare, interpreters at hospital expense, free schooling. I had to sit on a trial of a cocaine smuggler who worked out of his locker at a restaurant and was wanted for crimes in 2 other states. I had to take 4 days from work for this and didn’t even get paid. Hope La Raza can help him return to his native land after 10 years in jail.
We can’t afford 20 million illegals, and half of them think they ‘owned’ California b/c they are so ignorant they don’t even know any real history, just oral history of how they settled it… pathetic
