Posted on 12/27/2006 8:58:23 AM PST by presidio9
Retooled immigration legislation that could get a vote in Congress by spring amounts to "amnesty" for millions of undocumented workers, Rep. Peter King (R-L.I.) fumed yesterday.
"I just have no support for this at all," King told The Post. "This is clearly amnesty."
King was responding to word that a bipartisan bill is being prepared for consideration by the new incoming Congress.
According to a Senate Democratic aide, Sens. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) have already opened "preliminary" discussions with two House members over the revised legislation. Negotiators are considering scrapping a complicated proposal that would require an estimated 7 million illegal immigrants now living in the United States to jump across the border before returning to apply to become citizens.
That provision would also mean that illegals in the country for less than two years would not be guaranteed a slot in a guest-worker program.
Congress also may nix a border fence that many conservatives say is needed to stop the flow of illegals.
Legislation to build the fence passed Congress and signed by President Bush this year. But it hasn't been fully funded, and can be amended by a new law.
Most Democrats oppose the fence, as does Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, who prefers a "virtual" fence in some areas.
But conservative Republican opponents of easing the path to citizenship for illegals lost major clout in the elections. "The fact that the Democrats are controlling Congress will definitely make it easier" to pass, said King.
But Democrats in conservative districts won't be "enthused" about supporting a bill that could be a political liability, he said. "The dynamics have certainly changed for the better!" crowed the Senate Democratic aide.
Critics said the original Senate bill is unworkable because of its provisions based on how long illegal

Rep. Peter King (R-L.I.)
?? What state is "L.I."
Well, there is a whole industry which produces forged documents to accomodate this constituency.
Hopefully we can do that without Boxer Rebellion II, but you never can tell eh!
Lon-GUY-land. Home of the five towns.
Problem is I can acquire an almost unlimited number of Chinese and Indian nationals (and a nearly unlimited number of Indonesians, Pakistanis or Nigerians) at far less cost and outfit them with all the documentation they need faster than the domestic forgery industry can provide for the Mexicans.
In the end, the Mexicans will still be uneducated illegal aliens without documentation of presence, and we Republicans will have 10 to 20 million new hard-core Republican voters, fully educated ~ most with a Masters degree or better.
The Dems are doomed I tell you, doomed!!!
Agents in Mumbai are working hard as I speak.
More accustomed to seeing the state after a congressman's name. City seems to come after state reps names.
PING for later...
As opposed to
Staten Niland -- home of unfinished roads, the mafia, and Great Kills
Any Congressman or Senator who votes for this should be recalled.
Long Islanders will sit you down and tell you they want to secede from NY State. And they're about as vocal about it as people from South Jersey...at least that's the way it was 20 years ago when I lived in the area.
NYC newspaper - NYC readers want to see if a Congresman is from the city or the 'burbs or whether he's from some unimaginably far away place like Herkimer County or Plattsburgh.
Either way, if you come from there or the Swamp you are a card-carrying member of the bridge & tunnel crowd. Bear in mind that the real Sonny Corleone was from Strong Island by way of the Bronx, not Staten Niland. He died on the Jones Beach causeway.
Amnesty is not the solution to the problem. Once McCain and his DemocRATS give the illegal aliens a piece of paper advising them that they are now an "americano de los estado unidos" (a la the Wizard of Oz), we are going to need 20 million more illegal aliens to do the jobs they are no longer going to want to do.
This is great. I can't even threaten my republican rep anymore. Since last time I told him that he would wind up losing his job over this.... He lost his job over this.
My new Democrat congressman is a raving lunatic. He just wouldn't understand why amnesty is wrong.
Wasn't the Godfather was filmed in Forest Hills--Staten Island?
Regardless of the trivia, the island has its share of wise guys. How else can you explain the highway construction in the borough?
I'm not sure where it was filmed, I talking about where it was supposed to be. In any case, if you want to talk about real cosa nostraland these days, youse gotta go over the Goethals Bridge.
Too bad King was a longtime supporter of terrorism before 9/11.
On a national level, King is probably most famous for teaming up with Senator Clinton to help kill the UAE ports deal.
He is a personal friend of Gerry Adams and of Martin McGuinness.
He has been the staunchest advocate the IRA has ever had in the US Congress.
Oh you mean the IRA? Yeah I didn't support King at all back then. I think the IRA is aligned with the Jihadists for a long time. They trained together.
If anybody saw 'The Panel' on Brit Hume's show last night... the consensus was that people who think like Peter King are smoking that high-test tobacco. After watching these pompous buffons chortle in derision of his statements... I wish I had been.
Anyone who reflects on amnesty will realize it spells disaster for this country. Those who push for amnesty pose a danger to this country.
The Rats are going to pass an amnesty bill with no fence, and that coward Bush is going to sign it.
Then, by my estimate, over 80% of those now in government are a danger to this country and should be told, quite forcefully, to cease and desist.
I am 1/2 serious.
As I send letter after letter, sign petition after petition,and support anti-illegal efforts, to Bush and other Pubs, I find myself so frustrated that when these 12-19 million get here legally due to 'bi-partisanship of W and Dems', I will resolve never to buy or support anything that smacks of this deal. Ever.
Better get used to it folks. This is how it's going to be from now on--no gonads in either party.
We need have King and others state the true numbers which are probably closer to 25 million and pound the table that they will all whistle and wave the rest of their families in. The people need to know this little tiny 11 million amnesty is really 80 million new friends over the next 10 years.
We are facing an invasion, terrorists are setting up cells, our borders need protection, and what do Senators McCain and Kennedy want? They want amnesty for illegal aliens.
Many politicians push for special perks for them. US citizen do not get the free medical treatment given to illegal aliens, permission to break laws that we do not like, or reduced college tuition.
This country does not need more people, especially not those who show contempt for our laws. Illegal aliens are using up limited resources, commit horrific crimes, etc.
Believe me, these criminals will not enrich our culture - many even refuse to learn the language - nor will they improve the gene pool.
Why the desire to keep illegal aliens and encourage more to come? Those who support them are traitors or bribed, hate this country, want to turn us into a Third World country, and/or mental ill.
This is the sentence that belongs in the "nutshell"
The reality is, there are people in our government who believe all countries should be on equal footing, what they hate is how others perceive us. Some of them even think that is good for our country and feel patriotic for selling us out.
Beware Rhodes Scholars in particular
Just out of curiosity, why do they want to seceed? I know a group of gay vegan socialist weasels in San Fransicko want to, but thats expected from them.
But would the liberal media ever print it?
The end result is that each and every city will form it's own border defenses, small and large alike.
Some cities will be worth living in others won't.
The one's worth living in will not rent to illegals or hire them and law enforcement will take the two week course which allows them to kick the illegals out of town or jail them.
The others will be invaded.
I am afraid it is a bipartisan policy. Republican congressmen got "interested" in this issue just before the elections. What a coincidence.
Long Island in New York State.
Not having a fence along the border to stop more illegals from entering our country is even worse than amnesty.
As the article indicated, the fence hasn't been funded completely, and a new amendment by a new lib Dem Congress can nix the legislation for a fence.
Peter King is a RINO jerk. He is right on a handful of issues like abortion and illegal immigration, but a stopped clock is always right twice a day. Peter King generally votes the "party line" because he has to, but will happily side with the Dems whenever his vote is not needed. For example, his record on guns and government spending is extremely poor. He adores government handouts and even votes with the NAACP about 40% of the time.
Peter King is a media whore and loves whoever is "popular" at the time. When Clinton had sky-high approval ratings, Peter King came on TV and defended Slick Willie tooth-and-nail, even gloating he would find "35 to 40" Republicans to stop impeachment (the actual number of RINOs who sided with him turned out to be four) When Bush had sky-high approval ratings, Pete King came on TV and defended HIM tooth-and-nail. Once Bush's "popularity" began to fault, King quickly reversed course and stabbed Bush in the back ("They'll be sorry they did this to New York."), attacking the Bush administration for "corruption" and promising to launch a congressional Probe into "orgies" at the CIA ( BTW, there have been NO allegations that ANYONE at the CIA ever engaged in "orgies.") if he didn't get additional pork barrel spending for NYC.
Peter King is unabashedly a long-time terrorist sympathizer... as long as the terrorists are Irish instead of Muslim. A terrorist is still a terrorist.
He is a condescending and arrogant jerk who should have been taken out in the primary over six years ago. We'd do a lot better in that district if we had a Republican who wasn't so obnoxious and shallow. Peter King has proven the only person he is loyal to is Peter King.
The RATs did takeover all the local offices in the area in 2006, but this is not indicative that the area now "leans Democrat" because the GOP their butts whupped EVERYWHERE in 2006, even in some "safe" Republican areas. Otherwise, King's district is a swing area that is marginally Republican. Dems win 2/3rds of New York State as a whole, but in King's region, Hilderbeast lost both Nassau and Suffolk to Rick Lazio. Bush essentially tied Kerry, 49%-49% in the area, and George Pataki won both Nassau and Suffolk in all three of his Governor's races, and in 2006, Jeanine Pirro won in Suffolk in her A.G. race while getting her butt kicked in the rest of the state.
If the GOP ran a decent, likeable candidate with crossover appeal, they could rid themselves of RINO scumbag Peter King and keep this district in GOP hands for the foreseeable future. An example to look at is when backstabbing RINO leach Amo Houghton was succeeded by the generally faithfully conservative Randy Kuhl in New York's 29th. Kuhl is very low key and quietly conservative. He won handily and even survived the Dem onslaught of 2006. Clearly we did not "need" backstabbing Houghton to "hold the seat for the GOP"
Our constitution is as formidable and concrete as WE THE PEOPLE say it is, and our options under it are: CEASE and DESIST.
Many Thanks! Makes me feel a lot better about that part of the country (especialy Long Island).
That number would about cover the illegal aliens in California alone. How about the millions of them in other states? What a crock!
