Posted on 07/01/2007 6:40:56 AM PDT by george76
Hours after a massive immigration bill collapsed in the Senate, lawmakers and lobbyists began seeking ways to pass bits and pieces of the measure important to their constituents.
In an interview earlier this week, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. _ a backer of the sidetracked immigration bill _ said the one-at-a-time approach may prove impossible, even for tougher border-enforcement measures that now seem popular.
"The only way we're going to get Ag jobs or DREAM Act" or pathways to legal status for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, Graham said, "is to do it together.
This idea of 'Just do the enforcement,' there are no votes for that."

Potlatch has a solution : a moveable fence.
The point was never for them to become citizens. That is why the fines and back taxes were injected for those seeking citizenship. The point was to make them legal but still dirt poor, willing to work for the low wages.
miss lindsay is toast!!!
wait until SC votes him out!!!
he will become a lib/dem!!!
If we keep up the pressure to "build the fence" there will be. Idiot senators are disoriented and confused by the fact that citizens really have begun to pay attention when their vital interests are at stake. A followup grassroots "Secure the Border" campaign is the next step to keep momentum going.
pressure our politicians to enforce the existing immigration laws including deporting illegal aliens, building the fence and prosecuting businesses
That's what they just tried. Disparage and discourage and blow off the People. Very little in the MSM about this bill until internet and talk radio let the sunshine in. And then much to their surprise, the sh*t hit the fan.
Translation: we will not release the hostage until all of the Senate's, the President's and the Chamber of Commerce's demands are met.
The American people have a historically low view of Congress. We seem unable to do the publics business and find consensus on difficult issues.
Great Goober, you understand the problem, but you seem to be unable to come up with a solution!
Just might be a CLUE as to why people are sick of your crap!
Bye Bye Goober
That includes the so-called virtual fence which doesn't work. Actual fence is 15 miles, but most of that is beside an existing fence.
After we replace the scum-bag traitors like you, we will have the votes.
We’ll melt their phone system again.
You cannot become something you already are. Once he's out he will be free to apply for the job he loves. Ted Kennedy's butt boy.
I think Lindsey might have a plank from the virtual fence sticking out of his........
Any photos of it? I’d like to see what they call a fence.
Old Lindsey McCain had better get use to being jumped on, he made his on.
Dream Act hungar strike at Pelosi’s office in San Francisco to begin tomorrow.
I'll venture an answer. Hell No!!!! And if that stupid bill had passed, the millions of spouses, offspring, and so on would join the workforce at full wages and hump for benefits. What a nightmare!
