April 7, 2006 -- IMMIGRATION-BILL SURPRISES HOW do you slip legislative poison past a U.S. senator? Bury it on page 302 of a bill.
The Senate's Democratic and Republican leaders yesterday announced a compromise on an immigration bill - with some details still to be worked out. But details that may continue from the bill passed out of the Judiciary Committee should definitely be deal-breakers.
Like that surprise hidden on page 302 - which would replace the country's entire bench of experienced immigration judges with pro-immigration advocates.
With a few exceptions, today's immigration judges (who serve for life) are dedicated to enforcing the law, and they do a difficult job well. This bill forces all immigration judges to step down after serving seven years - and restricts replacements to attorneys with at least five years' experience practicing immigration law.

What would we do without leaders like Rush who help us take back our republic?
He seems to be the first to let the Mexico official racism genie out of the bottle. Now the MEXICANS have more than their share of explaining to do, don't they?
"Official racism," amen!
That's how I got my FR name, when Mexican Foreign Minister Ernesto Derbez stated, about one year ago, that if Mexico couldn't get the "whole enchilada" at one time, i.e., unlimited unlawful migratory access to the U.S. plus all the freebies, then they would get it one part of the enchilada (la enchiladita) at a time.
I like using the enemy's language against them.
The biggest 'bomb' hidden in America today is the one ticking on the Hill in SC. The Enemy Within.
If they will not attend to an invasion in progress or much less do much to thwart it , then when will they ever heed the call to duty?
A duty they willingly sought to defend the US Constitution and its laws and then swore an oath to fulfill same as elected reps of this nation.
While citizens convicted of felonies are routinely stripped of many of their rights. Paging Alice in Wonderland.
Well keep at it because our fellow gringos are treated like dirt down in Mexico, I know for a FACT.
I hope Kris Kobach runs for office again. He was rather narrowly defeated last year in a very blue district, in large part due to hostile intervention by Bush Administration for Adam Taff... the district ended up staying Democrat. He narrowly edged out Lackey Taffy* but lost 55-45 to Dennis Moore, after depleting resources on Taff, who spent $775,000 in the primary. (In comparison, Kobach only spent $1,211,000 TOTAL; Moore spent $2,362,000 and was unchallenged in the primary.)
(*Kobach ran a very more positive campaign; the derisive nickname for Taff is mine.)
SESSIONS was awesome a couple of times yesterday..but last night, whe he was picking that bill apart, bit by bit..
I almost decided to move to Alabama, just so he could be my Senator..LOL
The press release says it was introduced in May, 2005. Thomas says it was introduced in May, 2005. Where's the problem?
boy, that's the equivalent of allowing only criminal defense lawyers to hear violent-crime cases!
It could happen!
Oh wait, you're already in a great place! LOL.
Question: Which is the worst state in terms of Senate "representation?"
California, Massachusetts or New York?
Double-triple yuck, huh?
I'm all in favor of putting Cardinal Maphony in with some of the rapists whose sense of sexuality and right and wrong was destoryed by Maphony's priests.
(No, this isn't the wrong thread... Maphony is calling for his priests to practice civil disobedience by breaking immigration law.)
I don't think Tony is going to help on this issue.
The problem was that it hadn't been updated and I wanted to find a list of the related bills. I finally found the related bills at www.senate.gov/pagelayout/legislative/b_three_sections_with_teasers/active_leg_page.htm.
Evil has always thrived under the excuse of ignorance.
Democrats = Evil.
Republican Senators = Evil, and just smart enough to make themselves look Stupid.
Notice I say only Republican Senators. In my years on the hill, I met dozens upon dozens of highly principled, idealistic conservative house members. And only one trustworthy Senator who is still around, Coburn (OK). The rest would sell their own mothers into the sex-slave industry, as long as they got rights to the internet postings.
I seriously tried to give just one answer to your question, and I can't.
They are all equally bad...and the Senators, unless they QUIT to run for POTUS, are all ensconced for life, it seems.
>> can stay there (which most WANT to do anyway, to be with their families where they speak the same language and don't have to wash bathroom floors and pick pesticide-laden vegetables). <<
Have you visited Los Estados-Unis de l'America*, lately? The new way is to bring your entire family over, and defiantly refuse to learn or speak any English at all.
*If my Spanish translation is bad, fine, so be it.
Be Ever Vigilant!
>> The Bible has a scripture that says "my people perish for lack of knowledge" <<
Interesting insight... and by no means a misapplication of principle: The theocracy of Israel failed militarily when its people were weakened by the failure to uphold Mosaic law, which had in its place mechanisms to prevent indenturedness from passing from generation to generation, excessive interest, excessive taxation, "bubble economies," and unassimilating immigration*.
(* Oh, and believe me... you REALLY had to WANT to assimilate! YOUCH! Refugees were always welcomed, but it was considered a fantastic taboo to bring economic migrants in. Such an act was considered akin to committing adultery against God.)
That would be Senator Kennedy's staff. They slipped all kinds of nasty things into the "compromise" bill behind the back of Hagel and Martinez. For a run down, read Senator Sessions' comments last night in the Congressional Record. His staffer read the entire, 500-page piece of s**t bill and found all the uglies.
The Democrats were insisting on having the right to name all the conferees, a position which was absolutely ridiculous.
THAT IS FANTASTIC NEWS! Thanks for pinging me to tell me-- I am office-bound... and NOT liking it!
There usually are a few different versions of a bill at the Thomas/congress.gov site, but I do see where that page does not show it reporting out of committee, yet.
Sold down the river (again) by a bunch of Quisling traitors ping for future reference.
Here are a couple of USCIS officials (from their website):

Does something about these appointments seem a little bit un-balanced?
No small credit to Just Piper, who was exhorting the troops here (all through the night) to stay on the phone calls to the wavering Republican senators!
My hat's off to Just Piper!
Would there also be a maximum font size requirement? I sure hope so....
Thanks for the ping. And...bumping this thing.
The issue of a guest worker program is completely separate from the issue of illegal aliens.
We have a guest worker program. It may need to be reformed but illegal aliens are those who have not applied to be guest workers. There are 11 million of them. (or more) The only thing needing reform concerning illegal aliens is to enforce the existing laws respecting their presence and their employment here. And border security.
Border security is the number one problem in this debate. The flood of illegal aliens is a major factor in relation to our lack of border security but it is only one factor. There is also a matter of national security in a time of war and in an age when terrorists have set their sights on inflicting mass destruction on our society.
After the issues of border security and millions of illegal foreign nationals on our soil the matter of guest workers is very small. Until the first two problems are thoroughly and firmly addressed the guest worker issue should not even be discussed.
The President the Senate and the House need to get that message with unambiguous resolve.
Border security! No employment for illegal aliens!
Immigration and a guest worker program are separate issues from the above.
Quit making so much sense BUMP!
Rush Limbaugh said the Senate smackdown of McCain/Kennedy was probably due to the pressure we (grassroots activists) put on them.
So we've got that going for us.
Your ping was at the top of my list and I was so excited to come home and find the following:
Tell me phone calls do not matter!
WASHINGTON - The Senate sidetracked sweeping immigration legislation Friday amid partisan recriminations, leaving in doubt prospects for passage of a measure that offered the hope of citizenship to millions of men, women and children living in the United States illegally.
The bill gained only 38 votes on a key procedural test, far short of the 60 needed to advance.
The vote marked a turnabout from Thursday, when the Senate's two leaders had both hailed a last-minute compromise as a breakthrough in the campaign to enact the most far-reaching changes in immigration law in two decades.
But Republicans soon accused Democrats of trying to squelch their amendments, while Democrats accused the GOP of trying to kill their own bill by filibuster.
Read more of the whining Dems!
Good job JP!!
It's a tough fight, hopefully they won't cave in.
They have to know the people in this country do NOT want amnesty for millions. Those millions will become billions because they have 5-10 kids each. There's a girl here locally [not illegal] but she's only 22 years old and has 5 kids!! NOT married. ~sigh~
Extremely important article. Thanks.
Want to share something funny with you...
I come in and first see Immigration news and with each sentence I'm whooping, I'm crying, then I read Tiger's post and yours and crying more and whooping
At the same time my 19 yr old daughter is whooping Ronnie Cedeno and Matt Murton as the Cubs play and are winning
What a house hey?
I love joyful whooping and hollering! I do it myself!
The Cubbies... *sigh*
Dodger fan here, Vin Scully's still calling the games!
I certainly didn't know until I read the complete article that the immigration judges are appointed by the attorney general, Alberto Gonzales, who is probably an anchor baby himself. D@mn, just d@mn.
Does the body good!
Check out post #127 for some other "appointees" that have direct control over immigration.
I call this odious amnesty bill "One flew over the cuckoo's nest" Well, it ain't going to fly this year. Screw you Vicente and all the Latino fifth columnists in the USA.
I have no problem with Hispanics who come here legally though I do believe there are other 3rd world countries should send us more legal immigrants and Mexico a lot less since we have accepted so many already. Greedy Mexico sends us the MOST LEGAL IMMIGRANTS! And of course the most illegals too.
THANKS TO SENATOR SESSIONS! My new hero!
LaEnchiladita was first. Credit where credit is due. To you and to him ; )
You cried? I hope your a woman, men don't cry. /sarcasm to the enth degree
And for my part, my life seems to be a continuum of making women cry. You're the first to thank me. 8^(
Let's keep the pressure on, everybody. We have a chance to be heard now thanks to some Pubbie Senators who refused to sell us out. Back them up and reinforce our positions.
May the blessings upon you flow with unending increase.
