Reid: We Need The People Of America To Rise Up For Amnesty Bill Wednesday, May 11, 2011 By Eric Scheiner
(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is calling on Americans to rise up and let them know how important the DREAM Act is to them.
Reid made the comments at a confrenece on Wednesday in support of the measure that would allow qualifying illegal aliens to obtain legal residence status.
As was said yesterday in El Paso by the president, we need the people of America to rise up and indicate to each of us how important this legislation is, Reid said.
I believe that the people in America need to understand that these young men and women who want to be educated, who want to be able to serve the military. Its good for everybody.
Senator Reid along with Senators Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) say the Senate will bring the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act to the floor for a vote. The measure previously failed to pass during the lame duck session of the last congress when both chambers were under Democratic control.
The bill would allow qualifying illegal aliens to obtain legal residence status.
President Barack Obama addressed the previous failure of the DREAM Act and called for its future passage during his speech on immigration in El Paso, Texas yesterday.
Deluded old koot. Just when I start feeling depressed about my senators I think about Nevada.
That’s the Dem platform..the DREAM act and Cowboy Poetry..
Reid: We Need The People Of America To Rise Up
For AGAINST Amnesty Bill
We need the people to rise up and kick this clown and his sorry friends out of office. We the people need to rise up and man the borders to stop anyone from crossing illegally. We the people need to rise up and force anyone who is here illegally to leave.
This assclown wouldn’t like what the people who rise up have to say on the matter.
um.... Americans ARE rising up, silly - it’s called the Tea Party
We’re gonna rise up, alright......
Harry, stop poking at the bear. You would have a far better chance passing it in secret at 1 AM some late night when the people aren't paying attention.
We need to rise up alright...to save our country from the United States Senate.
I have a dream, Dingy Harry, that every one of the 23 Senate Democrat seats up for re-election would be lost to your party.
I’m sure a lot of people would rise up for amnesty, but I don’t think they would be Americans.
Time for Americans to rise up ... with pitchforks and torches, and tarred rails for democrat criminal enterprise scum like Reid.
Amnesty is a jobs bill, right? Jobs for illegal aliens.
better be careful of what you wish for Harry...the next time the Tea Party has to “rise up “ to DC because of your sorry a%^ prolly won’t be quite as cute a the preceding was....
Harry Reid, you despicable POS....
...as the preceding was
A large gathering of illegal aliens waving Mexican flags demanding free ObamaCare should do it,.
Yes. Oppose amnesty, and be less than a person; yes, a subhuman anti-American!
“Please Barry, send them away! They are too gruesome, and bad, bad less than people! Send the bitter clingers to the tea party cornfield!”
Be careful what you ask for, Harry.
there’s actually a better chance of the American people rising up to demand that they cancel the Super Bowl and replace it with an AKC dog show...
caught a rerun of the movie Casino a few nights ago.
Boy did Dick Smothers ever nail this smarmy character.
I always think of the Senator from Godfather II.
Notice the clever turn of phrase.
"The people of America."
Not "The American people."
Citizens vs. non-citizens. Which group would be for this, and which would be against it?
Somewhat facetiously, which group is the larger voting bloc?
The House passed the Dream Act when they had the majority! Now they are going to try and push it through the Senate!
Will they succeed?
We needed the people of Nevada to rise up in 2010 and look what they left us.
Harry is just beggin for another black eye.
It's amazing the things you can learn on the Internet. And from Harry Reid no less!
I’m rising up right now saying I am opposed to it...Waiting for the racist label from reid...3.2.1...
Dean Heller just replaced John Ensign, Pinky Reid stands alone here.
Dean knows that the ONLY acceptable “Immigration Reform” is to begin sincerely enforcing the CURRENT laws!
I am still betting he can’t get 50 democratic senators.
A little clue Harry - if we rise up it ain’t gonna be for amnesty and you and you communist overlord better get the hell out of the way!
....with the help of so many out of state “Tea Party” contributions to gaff prone Sharon Angle.
Helped you to complete the sentence.
Don’t worry you senile old coot. You push amnesty again and the American people WILL rise up. Just you wait and see.
PASS THE WORD----EVERY STATE SHOULD GET THIS GOING Repubs should send letters out to every person listed on the voter rolls asking for proof of citizenship. Those who do not provide it are deleted from the rolls.
Usually the Sec of State in each state handles voter irregularities.
Unfortunately, this clown will be trying to shaft us until 2016 Thank you SEIU!
I think he actually meant “Central and South Americans need to rise up...”
“I know he said he ‘fell’.....but he sure looks like he was punched.”
I wonder if that happens in gay bars very often?
......Ohaha's Texas suckup is fraught with hypocrisy b/c Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the White House, and even constant harassment from multiple illegal alien lobbyists got them zilch......no amnesty crumbs.......not even DREAM Act freebies.
The facts on the table are that Americans are dead-set against all of it......there will be no reward at the end of the El Paso rainbow......
Omao sides with illegals b/c they are fellow comrades and America-haters. Omao loves that the invaders are building a Third World inside the US. Omao loves foreigners w/ no allegiance to American culture and mores. They all hold sacrosanct US laws in utter contempt.
You can bet that in the federally-funded enclaves of La Raza's secret cabal, the invaders are plotting the destruction of the US of A.....using our tax dollars.
People suckered in for the "here for a better life" scam should read this.

What we have to look forward to if they get college degrees.

Ok Harry, I’ll get right on that . . . soon as I take out the trash!!!
Why do the indigenous people of some small regions of Mexico and Guatemala have any claim on lands formerly belonging to the Penobscot or Choctaw or Sioux? I’d be willing to put the vote on amnesty and border enforcement to the US tribes before I’d trust Congress.
Hey Harry! I feel the same way about you as your 'illegal fan club' does about America.
For those rising up for amnesty, consider the consequences. They could be dire.
For once, I agree with Harry Ried
We need the people of America to rise up
At least about the first part. We need to rise up and defeat any notion of letting MORE people into this country when unemployment is 10%.
We need to rise up and defeat any notion that illegal aliens should be allowed to stay here.
Round em up, seize their assets, send them away, and hire some Americans.
Rise uup AGAINSST amnesty?
We have successfully done it before, and we can do it again!
We need to rise up and call, fax, and email our Senators and Congressmen, and make sure they understand in no uncertain terms that we are opposed to any DREAM act or amnesty legislation, and we will not vote for those who are going down that road.
