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. It’s 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 it’s future passage during his speech on immigration in El Paso, Texas yesterday.

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.

Reid wants to surrender to the Mexican invaders? Sad, but not surprising.

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.

Liberalism has turned this POS's brain into soggy oatmeal.

No Harry, what the American people need to do is rise up against YOU. And put Obama-lama-ding-dong and the rest of the dimbulbs on that list too. They should all become public enemy number one's.

What this country needs is another "Night of the Long Knives" with all of them rounded up and imprisoned.

I’m sure a lot of people would rise up for amnesty, but I don’t think they would be Americans.

"We Need The People Of America To Rise Up"

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?

Will they succeed?

Well slap me silly! I didn't know that Mexico had neither a military nor schools and universities.

It's amazing the things you can learn on the Internet. And from Harry Reid no less!

Dems are relying on voter fraud to get back in----Ohaha promised Nanzi she would be speaker again (gag).

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.

Obama addressed the failure of the DREAM Act and called for it’s passage during his speech on immigration in El Paso yesterday.

......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.

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.

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.”

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.
