And McCain, Tony Snow, Kennedy.... Are there any amnesty supporters who don’t look upon us as a bunch of ignorant racist rednecks? Remember, Pride is one of the deadly sins. Greed too.

OK, I am checking the points I made against another site. The site this time is here.

Further details as they develop.

ding_dong, thanks for the sharp eyes and pointers.

Cheers!

Thanks. Don’t trust any draft that doesn’t say “Z visa.”

Hey don’t let those people in Washington fool you. The Law of The Sea treaty being revived by the Bush Administration is more of a threat to our sovereignity than our than illegal immigration could ever be. Don’t let them blind sight you folks.

Did you see the TITLE?

"To provide for Comprehensive Immigration Reform and for other Purposes"

The section on 501 (backlog) remains the same.

The section on 225 (drunk drivers) has no change. It says
"...including a
12 third drunk driving conviction, regardless of the States in
13 which the convictions occurred or whether the offenses are
14 classified as misdemeanors or felonies under State law,’’
15 after ‘‘offense)’’.
16 (b) EFFECTIVE DATE.—The amendment made by
17 subsection (a) shall—
18 (1) take effect on the date of the enactment of
19 this Act; and
20 (2) apply to convictions entered on or after
21 such date.

Section 228 (Protecting Immigrants from Convicted Sex Offenders) is still there.

And BTW, it just occurred to me that this might be there to help cut down on human trafficking, or the rape of immigrants by coyotes and such.

But in that case, it could at least ask for a "Good Neighbor" helping hand from Mexico to check for an immigrant's conviction record in Mexico...

Section 229 on the Local Authorities still has the

">`(b) Construction- Nothing in this section shall be construed to require law enforcement personnel of a State or a political subdivision to assist in the enforcement of the immigration laws of the United States..

So Sanctuary Cities are still A-OK. And the funding is still $850,000,000 per year, less than a billion.

Section 643 on the $500 dollar grants to learn English is still there.

Section 231 on removal of Erroneous Information from the National Crime Information Center is still there.

The prohibitions on employers using the verification system (Section 305) are still present.

Section 505 (Shortage Occupations, Nurses) is still there, fortunately including the good stuff.

Section 508 still covers advanced degrees, the 3-year window is still there, as is the cap at 115,000 per year, as is the 20% annual hike.

Section 218, the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program is there too. As is the dollar amount allocated.

So, it looks like the stuff I brought up is still in the latest draft of the bill.

Thanks for pointing it out!

NO cheers, unfortunately.

This is The Great Molestation of 2007. Asking us to “Sssh!” while they do unspeakable things and telling us we’ll actually grow to enjoy it. Disgustorment!

In the famous words, "Just lie back and think of Mexico!"

¡No Me Gusta!

>> Excellent work, sir. I have passed this around the outside FR world already. Great work. “The Globalist Wet Dream and Mexico Ass-Kissing Act of 2007.” So named. (sound of gavel coming down). <<

Spintreebob had another good name for this bill: IMMIGRATION LAWYER FULL EMPLOYMENT ACT and TRIAL LAWYERS WET DREAM. I like that too.

From Ghostbusters 2:

Dana: Okay, but after dinner, don’t put any of those old cheap moves on me. It’s different now.
Peter Venkman: Oh, no! I have all NEW cheap moves.

There are some new “cheap moves” in the new, improved amnesty bill.

re: grab bag for the globalists, those who wish to destroy the American middle class, and those who want amnesty.

Consider who wrote the bill. NOT immigrants. This bill is the

IMMIGRATION LAWYER FULL EMPLOYMENT ACT
or
TRIAL LAWYERS WET DREAM

You got fooled into thinking its about immigration? They are just plaintiffs... another opportunity for class action suits. Consider the suits against employers. Employers are dammned if they do and dammned if they don’t. If they discriminate they get sued. If they don’t discriminate they get sued.

You’ll see volumes of new law being enacted in District Courts. Lawyers will vy to see who can win the biggest precedent and get the opportunity to tutor Julia in her next movie.

Yep. Better titled, "The Mexico Welfare Assistance Act Of 2007." Its THAT bad.

Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." -Manuel II Paleologus
