Z Visa = Z End of the Line
GOPUSA ^ | May 18, 2007 | Bobby Eberle

Around much “celebration,” the U.S. Senate announced on Thursday that a “deal” had been reached on “comprehensive” immigration reform. As I heard the details of the bill, I could feel the collective groans of the conservative movement, just as if we were all punched in the stomach. Why did we work so hard to build Republican majorities? Why did we spend so many hours at phone banks or going door to door? The past six years have seen an erosion of everything we’ve worked for, and now our “leaders” give us immigration “reform.”

Following announcement of the deal, President Bush said, “Immigration is a tough issue for a lot of Americans. The agreement reached today is one that will help enforce our borders, but equally importantly, it will treat people with respect. This is a bill where people who live here in our country will be treated without amnesty, but without animosity.”

Treat people with respect? You mean the millions and millions of Americans who don’t break the law and who are paying for illegal activity through their tax dollars? Oh, I see…

…“interior enforcement” of immigration laws. Provisions include:

– The stiffening of laws and penalties relate to:
* the detention of criminal aliens
* the definition of aggravated felony
* gang violence
* passport, visa, and immigration fraud, including marriage fraud
* the streamlining of background checks for immigration status

– Other provisions include language regarding:

* Increased penalties for illegally entry and reentry
* encouraging aliens to depart voluntarily
* prohibiting aliens to possess firearms
* alternatives to detention
* state and local law enforcement reimbursement and training

They aren’t enforcing the laws we already have. Why will they enforce any of these new ones (other than the amnesty provisions, of course)?

Any talk of enforcement is just honey they put on the bitter pill to get us to swallow it.

Last time I checked, they were minorities specifically because the Always Whining thru a hissy fit last Nov and handed the Congress to the Democrats. You all wanted to "Teach the Republicans a lesson" well you are reaping what you all spent most of last year sowing so don't come crying to those of us who told you how stupid you were being.

It’s going to get a lot worse for you and your RINOS. Get used to it.

Agreed. I think there are going to be a lot of retirements from the senate and house in the next several years. Those dolts know that the end of the line is coming with the retirement of the boomers. I don’t care what you think of them, they are still the golden goose. When they retire all of this is going to come apart. I can’t wait to watch the reaction to WAY lower taxes being collected. All those illegal immigrants will have to fend for themselves instead of collecting welfare.

If the Republicans didn’t have their butt kissers who support them no matter what this wouldn’t be happening.

It is no coincidence that liberals are pushing this kind of immigration “reform” at such at time. With the presidential election approaching, they need votes.

And it looks like you RINO's still haven't learned anything yet either.

Stop moving Leftward. Stop selling out our Country. Or else we'll keep hacking holes in the boat. We won't let you sell us down the river without a fight. You or your fellow traveler socialists in the DNC.

What’s Spanish for “comprehensive immigration reform?” Amnistia.

Probably the best enforcement would be automatic deportation for any illegal that has any contact with law enforcement.

Jaywalk and get caught? Deported.

When I get punched in the gut, I can’t breathe or make a sound because there’s no air in my lungs.

It stinks and it’s a little scary. No groaning without air.

In 20 years or less, it will be the end of America as a representative republic, with the real possibility of outright civil war.

Keep in mind it is Bush and the Republicans who are leading the charge on this deal to pay off their big business buddies.

No point in electing Republicans if they’re no differennt from Democrats.

Time for the conservatives to bolt and form a new party. The Republican party will join the Whig Party on the scrap heap of history.

I think all communications with the Republican Party should be done in Spanish now....so they get the message (wishful thinking there, I'm sure)
