One-Party Congress will Push for Amnesty

by Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

To understand Washington, D.C., you have to first stop listening to the rhetoric, and start watching the behavior. As TV character Michael Weston aptly puts it, “Watch my actions, not my words.” Underneath all the bluster, we live in a single party country where the Republicans and Democrats are just different factions of a big-government loving elite feasting on the plunder of an enormous bureaucracy.

The reason both Republicans and Democrats fear the Tea Party movement is because its members aren’t from the club. Many of the policies that are quietly agreed upon by the current cast of characters still in power during the lame duck session will be radioactive after January, when the Tea Party representatives arrive.

Case in point: amnesty for illegal aliens. Masquerading under the positive sounding name of “the DREAM Act,” is a piece of legislation that will reward law-breaking with the highly prized gift of U.S. citizenship and all its benefits forthwith.

One of the champions of amnesty, Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell, may have unintentionally summed it all up last Thursday when she ranted: “I’ve been in the Senate since 2001, and I just remember Republicans being passionate about it [the DREAM Act] and sponsoring the bill. One of the most passionate speeches I heard was Orrin Hatch in the Judiciary Committee.”

Cantwell went on to say that in the past, “Republicans were so supportive of it,” and now she is at a loss to understand why some of these former amnesty champions are suddenly opposed to the DREAM Act.

No, Cantwell is not living in some dream-land. She’s right. While it goes without saying that part of the reason for this reversal of opinion by some Republicans is due to the message that patriotic Americans sent our elected officials last month, the sad and unfortunate truth is that far too many Republican senators have supported amnesty in the past and may still secretly support amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. A number of them will look for any excuse to support it again.

According to a report released by Michelle Malkin just before Thanksgiving, at least five GOP Senators “haven’t made up their mind on whether they should oppose a bill that amounts to a 2.1 million future Democrat voter recruitment drive.”

For the record, at that time, those Republican senators were John McCain, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Sam Brownback. And, of course, there are a number of Republican senators who supported amnesty (the DREAM Act) in the recent past such as, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, George Lemieux, Lindsey Graham, and Orrin Hatch.

Simply put, the DREAM Act is a nightmare of epic proportions, and it is a back-door amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

Mark Krikorian, writing for National Review Online, gives us two important reasons to oppose the Dream Act. First, this incredibly poorly thought-out bill will simply encourage more people to enter the United States illegally.

Sound like deja vu? That’s because it is. We’ve already been down this road before. In 1986, with the passage of Simpson-Mazzoli, we granted amnesty to three million illegal aliens in exchange for the false promise that we would put a stop to the flood of illegal aliens coming into the United States.

Today, after supposedly stopping the flood of illegal aliens coming into this country back in ’86, there are now 12-20 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

Of course, the biggest irony here is that the DREAM Act is nothing more than a Trojan-horse attempt to grant amnesty to those who came to the United States illegally, by first giving amnesty to their children. After the passage of Simpson-Mazolli, which was supposed to stop massive amounts of illegal aliens from coming into the country, the problem mushroomed.

Speaking of Simpson-Mazolli and ironies, Krikorian continues: “Perhaps one-fourth of those legalized under the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act received amnesty fraudulently, including Mahmud Abouhalima, a leader of the first World Trade Center attack. The fraud in that first big amnesty program was so pervasive as to be almost comical, with people claiming work histories here that included picking watermelons from trees and digging cherries out of the ground.”

Some of these corporate stooge Republicans love illegal immigration because it keeps wages depressed across America. Profits, to these big business Republicans, are more important than living wage jobs. The false Dream Act (back-door amnesty for millions of illegal aliens,) can only pass the US Senate with Republican support.

Let’s hope they heard the message of November and stop this lame duck madness.

    We are the only country in the world where people expect to enter without a passport and be given everything and more that a citizen gets. They demand it… a couple of years we will be no better than a third world country….the Senate and House – who are suppose to work for us will be under Geo Soros, the new Lord and Master – they will be the elite of the U.S. and we will all be the true underdogs, working for the government – obeying blindly – I think that the lines in the airport are part of schooling us to obey…

    The Republicans need to be careful. We (the American People) are watching their every move. Republicans need to remember we didn’t exactly vote for them in the last election, we simply voted against the, socialistic policies and the corrupt party in power. We will do it again if they stray from the people’s will. The Republicans should not let their power make them drunk, and make bad decisions because what we voted in, we can vote out. This time it ill not be about Democrat or Republican. The people in power have used the American public buy playing us one against the other when in fact it doesn’t have to be that way. We need to eliminate party affiliation and elect people who are for “We the people”.

    Whom so ever votes in favor of this let us all remember their name cause next election, their out of here!

    Whats infuriating is that we are already seeing cracks in the Republican fascade of post-election resolve, to block any legislation before considering taxes and budget. The Demoncrates know that anything they can get passed now will not be easily reversed because of Obamas veto. The usual Republican weak links are starting to make their appearance Snowe, McCain, etc. As time goes on the duplicity of the established politicians,who have no loyalty to the Constitution, becomes more and more visible against the backdrop of Tea Party leaders. It wont be long and it will do them little good to maintain their patriotic pretense. When that happens they plan to have their takeover in place, I presume.

    we have too many illegal criminals and it is time to clean house-we should stop with all of the nonsense and get rid of Obama and jail him for life- just because he is in does not mean our lives need to conform to his insanity

      No jail time for barry soetoro and company – -it's trial for high crimes and TREASON, conviction and all that follows. Not one single taxpayer dime should ever be spent "maintaining" any of these jackals in prison! NOT NOW, NOT EVER! If they are traitors to the USA, then they get the punishment traitors deserve. We were "promised", in 1986, that amnesty would be "this one time and never again"! Now, we need to make certain IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN- -Ted Kennedy made that speech AND WE TOOK HIM AT HIS WORD! As for the current "illegal" situation, ROUND EM UP AND SHIP EM OUT! Then "blockade" the border PERMANENTLY! If any of the "peoples representatives" don't like that, then SHIP THEM OUT, TOO!

    If you haven't seen it, you MUST watch the marbles video at (scroll down on the right). It is crucial for understanding why we must put a stop to the illegal alien invasion and substantially reduce the number of legal immigrants who enter this country.

    The dems are socialists and the republicans are liars and thieves, take your pick. Their both to blame for the shape our country is in. I’m convinced that washington is so corrupt that the only thing that will save America from these scum is a full blown revolution. Trying to talk to idiots is a waste of time. I tried telling people to vote libertarian but they are so stupid most of them said sure, libertarians must be liberals and i hate liberals…Its no wonder America is doomed, most people have never even read the constitution, they quit teaching it in schools in favor of gays for teachers, we have an illegal alien, muslim terrorist sitting in OUR whitehouse… If they take our guns without a fight all is lost……I’m glad I’m old and won’t have to see what happens in the next few years…RIP AMERICA….

    I am no political whiz, but it seems to me that the only way we can stop some of this, or all of it even, is for we, the people of America, the LEGAL CITIZENS of this country to get togather, undivided and stop it. Whether it is with the Tea Party, or another “party” is up to us alone. We “hire” them, so we should “fire” them however we can manage. This sham of a government has turned into a 21st century monarchy, and it is not politicians who are in office, but a lot of would be “kings and queens” who are turning our lives into what the French peasents lived when they French Revolution brought them down. In essence, these “rulers” are saying to the American people…”let them eat cake”. (although that was not what Marie actually said) But in order to even “eat cake” we need a job to buy the ingredients to make said cake, and as of this time, too many don’t even have jobs to feed a family.
    The line saying these thieves are “loving the elite feasing on the plunder” of this enormous bureaucracy hit the nail exactly squarely on the head. They feast while we sweat blood and tears to just exist. This is wrong, it is not what America should be. And to allow these illegals to come and have everything freely, while we who pay taxes, do without, so the government can give it away to those who do not belong here.
    It is time for us all, Democrats and Republican voters to do what we need to do in order to save ourselves and our country from these pirates who are “PLUNDERING” us and our country. Pirates or would be kings and queens, it’s all one and the same, for we are being plundered to death. And if it continues, it can only get much worse. And worse, until there is nothing left for us or our future generations. Right now, many of us have no American Dream, for that dream is being given away to anyone that crosses any of our many wide open borders. Just so that the pirates can take even more from us, and they can live as they have always lived, like KINGS AND QUEENS! This is how September 11, 2001 happened, a government not paying attention to business, but living their own DREAM, and as a result, we had a NIGHTMARE in our own back yard. And if we do not stand up and put a stop to this, what we can look forward to is another Nightmare. The government is STILL not awake, and it is a dangerous way to live. All they care about is getting elected again, and care not one bit for those who put them there to do a job, to take care of our country, and the CITIZENS of this once great country.
