Amnesty? Senator Schumer Chairs Comprehensive Immigration Reform Hearing Today
Canada Free Press ^ | April 30, 2009 | Marinka Peschmann

Senator “Chuck” Schumer (D. N.Y.) will chair a hearing on Comprehensive Immigration Reform later today, called “Can We Do It and How?” If past is prologue, with Mr. Schumer crafting immigration reform expect amnesty and a policy that may ultimately hurt America.

Why? Because Senator Schumer’s early leadership role to fix America’s immigration system arguably contributed to the broken system that afflicts America today.

Recall it was in 1986 when President Ronald Reagan signed the far-reaching and ineffective Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Schumer, the then little known Democratic congressman was singled out by the President for his critical work in negotiating a compromise for agricultural workers that gave life to this formerly dead bill.

Eventually we'll have to imprison Schumer ~ maybe even torture him ~ just for the heck of it.

This guy has been trouble since he first showed up in politics. If I had to ask who was the worst politician in the last 100 years he'd be up in the top 4 or 5.

It's going to be quite exciting to see the Great Ice Sheets return and crush his district out of existence.

I wonder how many times he'll blame Bush today. The other day he blamed the FAA for the Air Force One Dembacle.

He said the FAA couldn't do anything right because Bush messed it up.

Hopefully they’ll fly up some witnesses and the whole lot of them get infected.

Schumer is the worst sort of politician of all - a bureaucrat who stabbed backs to get to the electable level so he could pander to liberal ideals (gun control, pro-abortion) in his New York environment saying anything...anything at all to get more votes from the near-senile and Democrat delusional.

Had a little tussle with Hillary and even she couldn’t put him down. This sniveling bastard is no retard - it’s going to take a (figurative) exterminator to remove him from the nation’s backside. Someone in New York state. Are there any persons in New York State not a liberal other than Dr. Rauel?

There are some. They’re even electable.
But I don’t think they’re electable at a state-wide level.
