Senator Sessions On The "No Illegal Alien Left Behind Act" (STRONG VEIN-POPPING STUFF ALERT)
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | 04/11/06 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 04/11/2006 4:02:23 PM PDT by goldstategop

RUSH: Just to once again demonstrate that I'm not off the reservation on immigration, let me tell you -- it's a very fine line here -- but I have some experts from a floor speech made by Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama about the bill. This is a 500-page bill and most of the Senate has not even seen it. They've not read it all. Perhaps their staff is digging deep and reading it now, but some of stuff in here is shocking. Now, the point of this is to show you just how desperate some of these senators are in both parties to try to go out and get the votes of these illegal immigrants. So yes, it's about illegal immigration, but it's just the vehicle. The wreck that would result is irrelevant right now. Let me just read some of the excerpts from this speech describing the bill.

This is Jeff Sessions: "Let us take loophole No. 1: Absconders and some individuals with felonies or three misdemeanors are not barred from getting amnesty. An absconder is somebody who was apprehended by Border Patrol people, detained, they did not have time to take him or her out of the country, they were busy, they did not have jail space, detention space for them, so they release them on bail. That is what they do all over the country because we don't take this seriously, and they don't show up when they are supposed to be deported. Surprise. They abscond. Absconders and some individuals with felonies or three misdemeanors are not barred from getting amnesty. Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, different crimes make aliens 'inadmissible,' 'deportable,' or 'ineligible' for specific benefits.

"Absconders — aliens with final orders of removal who are currently watched by ICE immigration officers — should not be eligible for amnesty. They remain eligible for this amnesty. The Kyl-Cornyn amendment that was blocked by the other side so we couldn't get a vote on it, was designed to fix this loophole. It would keep aliens with felony convictions or three misdemeanors from being eligible for the new amnesty program." But they're not because they prevented a vote on this. So absconders and some individuals with felonies or three misdemeanors are not barred from getting amnesty. You think that's by accident? It's not by accident, when you listen to Mrs. Clinton and other Democrats talk about how we need to extend the vote to convicted felons. If we're going to extend the vote to convicted felons and if illegal immigration is all about voting and getting the votes of illegal immigrants, then (raspberry) why the hell are we going to kick out legal immigrant felons?

"Loophole No. 2: Aliens specifically barred from receiving immigration benefits for life because they filed a frivolous asylum application will also be able to receive amnesty." So it's not just that they are here illegally, it is if they have committed illegal acts while here illegally they still will get amnesty in the Senate bill. Now, if you understand -- it's not because -- well, it's hard to say it's not because of X, Y, or Z, but it's primarily because this pool of people is looked at two to ten years from now as a massive voting bloc by both parties. Mostly Democrats, but some Republicans just inexplicably here, most of them in the Senate.

"Loophole No. 3: All aliens who are subject to a final order of removal — for some reason you are brought up and the court has ordered you removed from the country — who failed to leave pursuant to a voluntary departure agreement, they entered into those agreements and oftentimes people promise to leave and never leave — or who are subject to the reinstatement of a final order of removal because they illegally reentered after being ordered removed from the United States are also eligible for amnesty." So if you've been ordered to leave and you haven't left -- if you've been ordered to leave because it's been adjudged that you have violated the laws of the country -- you still get amnesty under the Senate bill. (interruption) It makes total sense, Mr. Snerdley, when you understand my whole point.

It makes total sense when you understand the objective of the people who wrote this bill, the Republicans and Democrats who wrote this bill. They don't want any of these people to ever leave, and they want these people to know that they (the ones in the Senate, the Republicans and Democrats) are the reason that they are being basically insulated from any law in this country short of murder. But there are six loopholes, these are just the first three. Sessions says after mentioning this in his floor speech, "I call on my colleagues to look at the bill. On page 353, line three, the bill clearly states that any alien with a final order of removal can apply for amnesty. This means that the aliens who have already received their day in court have had their case fully litigated, and they have been ordered removed and have failed to depart will now be rewarded for not following the law and leaving like they were ordered to do. They will qualify for this amnesty." Don't say it makes no sense. It makes perfect sense when you understand the objective of the writers of the legislation.

"Loophole No. 4: Aliens who illegally entered the country multiple times are also eligible for amnesty. Page 334, line 8 requires continuous physical presence and states that an alien must not have departed from the United States before April 5, 2006, except for brief, casual or innocent departures. Every time the alien reenters the United States illegally, they are committing a criminal offense. But this bill rewards those aliens with amnesty also.

"Loophole No. 5: This bill allows aliens who have persecuted anyone on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion get amnesty. It fails to make persecutors ineligible for amnesty.

"I would have thought that was an oversight until I noticed on page 363, line 22, that the bill makes those heinous acts bar aliens here between 2 and 5 years from amnesty but not those who have been here longer. The same bar left out for the 8.8 million who have been here for more than 5 years. This will be interpreted as an intentional decision of Congress when we pass this bill. That is not inadvertent. I don't know why they did that."

Aliens who have persecuted anyone on account of race, religion, nationality -- the point is, you try any of this in Mexico, and you're in jail. I read to you the Limbaugh Laws not long ago. It may be time to go through those again at some point if you could find that and print the file.

"Loophole No. 6: There is no continuous presence or continuous work requirement for amnesty. To be eligible to adjust from illegal to legal statutes under the bill, the alien must simply have been 'physically present in the United States on April 5, 2001,' and have been 'employed continuously in the United States' for 3 of the 5 years 'since that date.'

"Loophole No. 7: The bill tells the Department of Homeland Security to accept 'just and reasonable inferences' from day labor centers as evidence of an alien meeting the bill's work requirements."

So DHS has to accept inferences, not evidence, that an alien is actually working. "Under the bill, an alien can 'conclusively establish' that he was employed in the United States, and it can be either full time, part time, seasonally, or self-employed by presenting documents from Social Security, the Internal Revenue Service or an employer related to employment. The alien meets 'the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that the alien has satisfied the requirements' if the alien can demonstrate 'such employment as a matter of just reasonable inference.' If you can just have a reasonable inference that you have worked, get a document from a day labor center, you meet the work requirements. Everybody will meet it. No illegal alien will be left behind. The bill then states: ..... it is the intent of Congress that the [work] requirement ..... be interpreted and implemented in a manner that recognizes and takes into account the difficulties encountered by aliens in obtaining evidence of employment due to the undocumented status of the alien. The invitation is there to abuse the system. The invitation for fraud is clear."

The Department of Homeland Security has to accept by inference. In other words, folks, this is blanket amnesty and there are no requirements, and there are few restrictions whatsoever.

"Loophole 8: The bill benefits only those who broke the law, not those who followed it and got work visas to come to the United States. That is a plain fact. If you were here legally on or before April 5, 2001, you will not get the benefit of this amnesty. This amnesty benefits you only if you came here illegally." Now, imagine that.

"Loophole 9: The essential worker permanent immigration program for nonagriculture low-skilled workers leaves no illegal alien out. It is not limited to people outside the United States who want to come here to work in the future but includes illegal aliens currently present in the United States who do not qualify for the amnesty program in title VI, including aliens here for less than 2 years. Under the bill language, you can qualify for this new program to work as a low-skilled permanent immigrant even if you are unlawfully present in the United States."

Now, I read you this, ladies and gentlemen, (A) because I wanted you to know what Sessions said in his floor speech, the details of the bill, so you're not confused. When I say, "It's not about illegal immigration," it, of course, is. Look at how the whole concept of our immigration process is being destroyed, wrecked. It's being rendered worthless, all for the purposes of the empowerment of this country's left, the socialists, the anti-conservatives, whoever, the Democratic Party, and this is the extent to which they are willing to go in order to try to put back together a coalition of voters, and they don't care who they are or where they've come from.

It doesn't matter to them: the poorer, the dumber, the better. They are so willing to wreck the nation's national security with their position on the war in Iraq and the war on terror. Now they're willing to wreck the immigration system with the help of some foolhardy Republicans who for some reason have this fear of alienating these people and making them mad. This is what they're willing to do in order to get their power back, hopefully again to never lose it. That's what's inspiring and motivating this, and that's the point that I have been drilling and pounding home all glorious broadcast day.

The "No Illegal Alien Left Behind Act" - once you read it, you will understand why the U.S Senate tried to rush this massive 500 page exercise in hispandering through without a debate on it section by section. Be warned: it has vein-popping stuff. Its literally the Mother Of All Amnesties.

Sessions asking his fellow Senators to actually look at a bill? Were there any audible laughs?

Sadly I don't see any reason to see that the Republicans are stopping the bill. Yes there are many Republicans in the Senate who opposed the bill on its face, but there was a clear majority of Senators who wanted to pass an amnesty bill. The only reason that the Senate failed was because Reid withheld unanimous consent to allow the Senate to offer amendments to the bill, apparently the amnesty bill either wasn't enough amnesty for Reid or he wants the Republicans to feel the heat on this issue come November. Either way, the Democrats and about 10 Republicans are thus far supportive of of an amnesty program of some kind.

Republicans support the amnesty because they want the same votes Democrats are seeking. And of course, they want to guarantee their big business friends a permanent pool of cheap labor. What I can guarantee is the GOP will lose control of Congress if they pass an amnesty. They don't deserve forgiveness for betraying the country.

As long as the Democrats continue to hold their Marxist rallies across this country every day of the week from now until election day and have boycotts on communist holidays, the Democrats stand to lose just as much as the limp-wristed Republicans do.

Not all Republicans support amnesty.

It's worse than that. I can overlook a simple-minded person, I'd rather they were not holding an elected office though. But this is shear fraud.

Since when did "Republicans" like McCain or Lindsey care about respecting other more conservatives members in their party?

It wasn't about the amendments not receiving a vote. That is a cover story because McCain and the others were embarrassed by not being able to produce the filibuster majority they guarenteed.

It failed because they did have 60 plus votes.

They didn't have 60 plus votes because the idiots on the streets burned our flag and paraded Mexico's down the street. Gotta give them credit. If not for them, the Senate may have had that filibuster Majority. As it is, they were delayed in their goals.

Is the Senate going to come back for amnesty? Yeah, but they are hoping it'll cool a bit and the media will manipulate enough polls to use as cover. They are doing their best to help this along by chastising the protestors and telling them to use American flags. The real question is whether enough Republicans will be spooked by their constituents into filibustering this bill indefinitely. Can we muster 41? If we CAN, then this could conceivably be in trouble. If not, the Senate passes and all pressure is on the House to "compromise". If that's the case, I have doubts they'll hang together.

Best way to explain this is to type the following:

Then type a close carrot after the final quote. In the sentence above, the carrot before the "img" is an open carrot. Type one facing the opposite direction.
