Lincoln, Pryor Back Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

In a move certain to increase the flow of illegal aliens across our border, our Arkansas senators announced their support for the amnesty bill now working its way through Washington. Although the measure does address border security, their is no assurance that the enforcement provisions of the bill will ever get done. I am outraged, but not surprised. They represent the big companies who want cheap labor, not us.

The great giveaway: hurry 'cause it's goin' fast!

First they lie to us and tell us that we MUST have immigration reform when the current laws are quite sufficient. Then they use the new law as an opportunity to sneak in amnesty for the illegals. What a bunch of We-Are-The-Worlders. Traitors.

You know, it is weird. I really don't see anybody on either side making much sense on this issue.

First, you have the people that call the immigrants (illegal and otherwise) "invaders" and spew hate and anger constantly.

Second you have the amnesty crowd that seeks to forget that the illegals are just that "illegal."

What do you guys think about this? I think that we should give the illegals 3 months to register and return to their home country. Those that comply could then be allowed to make application to return to this country in the legal pattern with the normal waiting period. Anyone found in this country after the three months should lose their right to EVER become citizens. If they are caught in this country a second time, then they should face felony charges resulting in an extended jail sentence. In otherwords they get "amnesty" for breaking the law the first time and only face deportation as a result.

I truly feel sorry for the people who so desparately want to come here to make a better life for themselves. I think that we should be allowing more hardworking people who seek to become citizens and become Americans to come here and assimilate into our society. The are not invaders, and deserve our pity. But we MUST enforce our laws. We have to be both sympathic and tough. It is a very thin wire to balance upon, but balance is what we need.

Illegals are, by definition, invaders. Yes, I would probably try to do it myself were I living in a poor country and able to get past the border, but I'd also understand why the government tried to prevent me.

Having said that, the Immigration Reform Act of 1996 bars anyone who is caught illegally in this country from being eligible to become a US citizen for 3 or 10 years, depending on length of time the illegal had been here. It also permanently bars illegal aliens who fraudulently claim U.S. citizenship.

If you don't respect that law, why would you expect anyone to respect your 'new' law? Our laws have become a joke, and those who would rather break them and await amnesty know this. But you'll say, "we have to do this for practicality, then we'll get tough." That's what Reagan said in '86, Clinton said in '96, and it's the same manure the congress is shoveling to us now. You know what the definition of insanity is?

We need resolve on this issue. I'm tired of laws, IT'S TIME FOR SOME ENFORCEMENT OF EXISTING LAWS.

The Constitution Party should be sending out membership applications right now and over the next couple of weeks. There are ALOT of Republicans out there that are spitting mad at Huckabee and the RINOs in the legislature.

Republicans account for about 45% of the population. Democrats account for about 44% of the population. Constitionalalites (I don't know what you call them) account for about 2-3%. Do you really think that there will ever be enough Constitutionalliereytes to get something done in the legislature?

Why do you think we have a primary? It would be great if everyone was equipped to get their message across, but the parties know that you have to get your "primary" candidate out there the best so they have a consolidated support.

Holt obviously knows this, that seems to be the reason he is running R.

So basically, Holt is cheating the system, running for a party he doesn't represent.

Don't know who wrote that, but let's not start the "Holt is really Constitution Party" rumor again. The man's officially on record to the contrary, so you'll just have to dig for dirt elsewhere.

He's already been caught in several other lies, why wouldn't he lie about this also? If Holt is not a member of the Constitution Party, then he needs to find a Republican to run his campaign. He can't find a Republican to run his campaign, because the Republican Party does not agree with him.

Maybe a good RINO? Those Constitution Party people are a good bunch!

If they are so good, then why is Holt afraid of switching over to them? He has surrounded himself with them. He is one of them.

Holt has been GOP the whole time. If the Republican Establishment would quit disrespecting its base then they would not have to be so insecure when one of their candidates gets help from a CPer.

They KNOW they have done a rotten job of defending conservative policy. That is why they are so insecure.

"They are insecure" huh? You aren't from the constitutional party are you? I would want to Holt in with the support of the R too
