Amnesty for 3 Million Tied to War Funding
CNN ^ | May 19, '08 | Lou Dobbs

Posted on 05/19/2008 6:04:56 PM PDT by T.L.Sink

(VIDEO) Pro-amnesty senators are once again trying to shove their amnesty agenda down the throats of the American people, duplicitously attaching their amnesty legislation to an Iraq war funding bill. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Larry Craig added an amendment that would grant five-year amnesty to illegal aliens who have either worked 150 days in agriculture or earned $7000 since January, 2004 - an estimated 3 million farm workers, PLUS their families!

Another instance of how the ethnocentric and self-interest business lobbies are determined to achieve their agenda piecemeal and incrementally - below the radar of public awareness - so as to defeat the clear desire of the vast majority of citizens who oppose amnesty for illegal invaders.

I think that they really want the GOP to vote against this so that they can use it to beat them with Hispanics.

Absolutely. The ruling class have been corrupted by their thirst for power. Flooding our gates with millions of dependent, disloyal, and ignorant peasants will only solidify their power base.

“Absolutely. The ruling class have been corrupted by their thirst for power. Flooding our gates with millions of dependent, disloyal, and ignorant peasants will only solidify their power base.”

I agree. Given past and current events I have reached the same conclusion.

“Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Larry Craig .......”

Did they tap this out while seated in restroom stalls?

I’ve got news for you. Hispanics overwhelmingly support the Dims already.

Larry Craig is the face of the current GOP. He should have resigned when they caught him soliciting sex in a public bathroom. When he didn’t resign, the GOP leadership should have forced him out, but they didn’t because they’re afraid. So, that’s what we have for a government now. The Crips and the Bloods.

Good one!

Maybe Dianne has some evidence about Larry, and Larry thought it best to play along...

Yes, Larry “footsie” Craig! If he had any sense of decency he would have resigned long ago. By the way, Craig has always been part of the open-borders lobby because his agribusiness supporters love those low wages with no benefits that suppuress the wages of ALL workers - skilled and unskilled.

Capitol switchboard toll free: 800-965-4701.

They're calling this "path to citizenship"---- not amnesty ----- to throw Americans off the scent.

We beat the McCain-Kennedy bill twice last year because Americans told the Senate who their boss is. Time to beat them again. Do not let these corrupt officials get away with this underhanded legislative trick.

ACTION Call your US Senators, Senate Minority Leader McConnell, candidate McCain, bill sponsors Sens Larry Craig, Finestein,

Capitol switchboard toll free: 800-965-4701.

The difference between now and the last Amnesty try by McCain-Kennedy, is the House is controlled by the Libs. This means that, unless Bush is somehow “forced” to veto it, the Feinstein-Craig Amnesty Bill will become law, and if you thought we had “open borders” and an “invasion” before with 40 million-plus now here and thousands breaking in every day, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
