BUMPED FROM LAST WEEK: Get rid of this terrible bill in the Senate, the so-called Immigration "Reform" bill (its Amnesty plain and simple - Congress is lying to us). It is loaded with entitlements that will blast many government agencies and social services, poorly written with huge loopholes in it, and it does not properly provide for enforcement and border security FIRST. Its nothing more than the latest in a chain of broken promises from Congress. We need some sort of path to citizenship for some of these folks, but this bill giving a blanket amnesty is not the right one - we need security first or all this other legislation is meaningless. Call your congressional representatives and senators - and if you are a Republican also call Senator Kyl (of AZ), who negotiated this, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (of KY) who rolled over for this. Here is Fred Thompson (read the previous blog entry on this for a full commentary). As usual, Fred is RIGHT!

Former Senator Fred D. Thompson today released the following statement regarding the immigration bill currently pending in the United States Senate:

With this bill, the American people are going to think they are being sold the same bill of goods as before on border security. We should scrap this bill and the whole debate until we can convince the American people that we have secured the borders or at least have made great headway.

Be sure to go to Numbers USA and send faxes NOW! Especially if you are, like I am, an American Legion member - the AL has come out squarely against this legislation. And call the RNC, RNCC, NRSC and remind them that you will never send money to an organization that betrays and sells out like they have. This is one of the most monumentally stupid moves the Republicans in the Senate have ever made, and for President George Bush's stupid moves, it even tops the Harriet Myers nomination. Operation Foot-Bullet in the Bush White House continues apace.
