Numbers USA, a group that I am proud to belong
to, issued this online statement earlier................
"October 24) The Senate failed to obtain cloture
on the DREAM Act amnesty (S. 2205) earlier
this afternoon by a 52-44 vote, for which 60
YES votes were needed to prevent a filibuster.
At this time, leadership from both parties are
meeting to discuss further proceedings.
Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and
Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)
were attempting to bring this nightmarish
amnesty bill to the floor under Senate Rule
XIV without it ever having been debated in
committee. Earlier this morning, the Bush
Administration issued a statement opposing
the DREAM Act ..."
For a supposedly intelligent body, the
Democratic-controlled Congress just can't
seem to get it through it's collective head,
that the American people have had enough
of immigration....... illegal or otherwise.
It's bad enough that they want the approximate
12 million illegals who are already here, to stay,
they are tacking on provisions that will allow
them to send for their extended families, making
the true total more like 21 million. Add this
amount to the proposed increases in legal
immigration that the Dems have planned, and we
will soon be a country as populous as India and
China. Something that we do not need. But
bear in mind, the more "sheep" that qualify for
the voting booth, the better the Democrats do
in elections. Speaks reams!
The Democrats have attained their present
good fortune, mostly on the "exorbatant cost of
the Iraq war". Do they have ANY idea of what
the cost of their proposals would be? I doubt it,
because they will follow the old tried-&-true
method of "tax the American worker to death".
Well.............. the voters can't say that we didn't
try to warn them, can they? I hope that come
November, '08, they have gotten enough education
to make the right choice.
