Senate "Shamnesty Bill" Provokes Harsh but Justified Accusations

The Senate "Shamnesty" bill on Illegal Immigration is being sold as a "comprehensive approach" by its advocates and a betrayal of the American people by it's opponents. It is not just talk show hosts and bloggers that use such harsh rhetoric against the bill and it's supporters, but even Congressmen! United States Congressmen have used language as harsh and angry as bloggers! And it is about time. Just read these quotes from a Tom DeWeese article which bracket some of the major provisons of the bill....

"As Rep. Rohrabacher said, "This ‘shamnesty' bill spells out the level of contempt the Senate has for middle-class Americans.

The "comprehensive" Senate bill includes:

* In-state tuition for illegal aliens – while American kids have to pay full price if they cross state lines.
* All temporary "guest workers" have to be paid a prevailing wage.
* All agricultural "guest workers" cannot be fired – except for what the bill calls "just cause."
* Illegal aliens are made eligible for Social Security benefits. Not only will they receive retirement benefits, but their children will receive survivor benefits should the parents pass away. This is all in a time when the massive influx of baby boomers reaching retirement age threaten to bankrupt the system.
* Increases the number of immigrants who may come here, even as our cities are overrun with foreigners.
* Employers of illegals are granted amnesty too. Employers would be exempt from civil and criminal tax and criminal liability under the Senate bill.
* Taxpayer dollars to radical immigration groups like La Raza (THE RACE) so they can help illegal aliens "adjust" their status. Millions of American tax dollars will go to the same groups who organized the massive demonstrations.
* Will not bar illegal aliens convicted of felonies from obtaining citizenship.

"This bill," said Rep. Charlie Norwood (R-GA), "constitutes treachery against U.S. sovereignty. This allows every illegal alien in America to use the fraudulent document industry they have created in the criminal back alleys of our country to claim they have been here 5 years and can now stay forever. They (the Senate) have granted blanket amnesty for citizens of foreign nations against tax fraud, Social Security fraud, Medicare fraud, identity fraud, and bank fraud – all crimes for which there is no forgiveness or mercy for citizens of the United States." "

Indeed! See my June 18th AW blog on SS for illegals for details of this outrage.

These are CONGRESSMEN saying this, so I guess it is OK if I say it. Bush's actions on this are treason, or close to it. I say impeach him, and I voted for him.
