Skip to comments.RNC member calls for anti-illegals vote
Posted on 01/13/2006 7:23:05 AM PST by Rockitz
A Republican National Committee member has gathered enough signatures to engineer a party vote next week on a resolution that calls for tougher immigration and border enforcement and opposes a guest-worker plan in what could be a head-to-head showdown on President Bush's signature immigration proposal.
"It's pretty clear where the American public is on this issue -- they want the border fixed. They want the government to do something about employers who hire illegal workers. I believe that's essentially where the Republican Party is," said Randy Pullen, the national committeeman from Arizona who is sponsoring the resolution.

It should have been clear long ago.
It's too damned bad we have to beat them over the head with a Louisville Slugger to get their attention.
As a political party, they're not very smart, but at present they're all we've got.
It's about damn time.
Hopefully this will actually have some teeth, and isn't just a knee-jerk reaction to Hildebeast's posturing.
Well Amen and Hallelujah BUMP!!
About damn time bump!!!!!!!
Can you ping your list? This should probably be breaking news in border states.
It should have been clear long ago.
It was. But they are being beaten up by an OPEN BORDER WHITE HOUSE AND CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP to keep quiet on the issue. THAT is the real problem.
The repubs had better realize that the old shell game where they approve a tough bill in the house then defeat it in the senate isn't going to work on this issue. If they try that approach the RNC had better tighten their belt several notches because contributions will disappear.
Anyone have an idea of how to get the message across to the RNC that there are hundreds of thousands of us out here sick of the same ole garbage out of Washington. I've called the RNC in Washington to voice my opinion. All I get is some "bored" voice on the other end of the telephone. Just not contributing doesn't seem to get the message across.
You and 50 million more like you!
Some "genius" (possibly Karl Rove) has told W that illegal immigration is a win-win situation for the GOP- First, a steady supply of hard-working cheap labor for business owners who tend to be big donors, and second a peace offering to the illegals with the hope that they will vote for GOP candidates when they do become citizens.
I don't hire illegals, but I do pay a helluva lot of taxes to keep them in health care, public services, infrastructure, and schools. I just can't afford it anymore. Lettuce for a buck and a half at the supermarket is just not worth it.
This is just another form of socialist wealth redsitribution from the middle class to illegal immigrants and business owners who hire them.
So, I reckon they got to vote on as to whether it is necessary to enforce federal and state laws, or is it they need to vote on how they feel about the law, or is it they need to vote on they have to turn a blind eye to corporate America for promoting 'slave labor', or is it they have to vote on another excuse to fund giveaway programs and tax dollars to illegal aliens that have committed a felony simply by entering illegally?
PLEASE FORGIVE THIS SOMEWHAT LENGTHY POST, but I wanted to provide some details of
WHAT NOT IS BEING ENFORCED ACCORDING TO LAW!! So, spread the word WE ARE GETTING SCREWED!! Here are some of the statutes The President, Vic-President, the Congress, the federal Judiciary, INS, ICE, all states that are bound to enforce federal regulation, etc., are sworn to uphold while employed as an agent of the United States government.:
§ 1182. Inadmissible aliens
1) Health-related grounds
(A) In general
(i) who is determined (in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services) to have a communicable disease of public health significance, which shall include infection with the etiologic agent for acquired immune deficiency syndrome,

§ 1227. Deportable aliens
(a) Classes of deportable aliens
Any alien (including an alien crewman) in and admitted to the United States shall, upon the order of the Attorney General, be removed if the alien is within one or more of the following classes of deportable aliens:
(1) Inadmissible at time of entry or of adjustment of status or violates status
(A) Inadmissible aliens
Any alien who at the time of entry or adjustment of status was within one or more of the classes of aliens inadmissible by the law existing at such time is deportable.
(B) Present in violation of law
Any alien who is present in the United States in violation of this chapter or any other law of the United States is deportable.
(C) Violated nonimmigrant status or condition of entry
Generally speaking, anyone physically and legally entering into the U.S. will be treated as a citizen, with all rights guaranteed a citizen. There are some exceptions to this general rule. For example, while entering the United States (and physically in the United States), a foreign national can be detained and expelled. In some cases, detention is for an unlimited amount of time, and some illegal immigrants have been held for years on end at taxpayers expense.
So, for Article II, sections 1 and 2: ".... Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:-"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Section. 2. The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

I'll assume you mean "What is not being enforced according to law."
On that note, youre absolutely wrong.
"The president has been very clear that he wants to see real and comprehensive immigration reform that includes border security, interior enforcement and a guest-worker program,"
Sorry, NO guest worker program.
Come in at the border check point, do it LEGALLY OR STAY THE HELL HOME!
