Neither is John Derbyshire over at National Review.
|When, exactly, did the U.S. people ask for this huge burden to be placed on their local services & tax base? When did we ask our lawmakers to open the nation's doors to tens of millions of low-skilled immigrants, paying low levels of tax, and making big demands on our welfare services? When did we insist that people who have come into our country illegally, and stolen the Social Security numbers of citizens in order to get work, be eligible for Social Security benefits based on those stolen numbers? (Yes, that is actually in CIRA.) And that, just as the social security funding system is heading into major crisis? When did we ask for legal immigration numbers to be tripled? When?|

This bill is just not good for us. It is an attempt at pandering to the hispanic vote in our country because, our PollCrazy politicians see that the demographics for hispanics is arching upward over the next 50 years. Allowing a flood of unskilled labor into our country is going to cost us billions more than what we're going to benefit. The unabashed lack of courage on the floor of the senate was appalling. The following lapdogs should be voted out of office :
While these senatorial bombasts hobnob at cocktail parties and swagger around in their elitist circles, Joe Workingstiff is getting the congressional Soapy Finger prostate exam. The WH hired Tony Snow as press secretary in order to try to placate the Republican rank and file. But, with Snow likening illegal immigration to a speeding ticket, the festering rage among conservatives is anything but abated.
Call or write your House congressional representative and let them know that you want no part of the Senate bill.

It is surreal, almost Daliesque, to see how little our government leaders actually listen to its constituents.
