Yeah. I'm being sarcastic.
And by ‘Guest Worker Program’ they are really talking about permanent workers. If the House Guest Worker plan is like the Senate one, or pretty much any other put forth in recent memory, allows the ‘guests’ to bring family with them and apply for permanent residency and citizenship.
So these ‘guest worker programs’ are really disguised ways to increase permanent legal immigration. A true guest worker program would not allow guests to bring family and would require that they eventually go home.
we have to call Congress and tell them no immigration related bill must come from the House as it will be merged with the Senate amnesty bill.
I hope the Whigs read the scoreboard in Colorado before they act.
But, this past week, Goodlatte reverted to his old ways. He made it clear he opposes a path to citizenship for the vast majority of undocumented immigrants, including for DREAMers. He signaled his intention to get to “no” on reform, expressing a desire to pretend to want a substantive fix more than actually wanting it. And he continues to champion the hardline SAFE Act: Draconian, Arizona-like legislation that, in the words of the New York Times, would turn millions of undocumented immigrants “into criminals overnight.”
Then, yesterday, he took another two giant steps backwards.
First, he decided to be a shill for Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) regarding the trumped up “asylum abuse at the border” story. As Roll Call reports, Rep. Goodlatte plans hearings – and presumably legislation – regarding the right-wing trope that Mexicans are falsely claiming asylum in order “to game the system by getting a free pass into the U.S. and a court date that they do not plan to show up for.” It doesn’t seem to matter that the claim does not hold up under scrutiny. As Ted Hesson of ABC News noted in a fact check piece, there are “plenty of reasons to be skeptical of this report…” But, hey, if Sessions wants to make it a big deal in hopes of derailing reform, who’s his go-to guy in the House? Goodlatte.
Then we learned that Rep. Goodlatte declined an invitation from one of the leading champions of reform, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), to hold a joint bipartisan town hall on immigration in Goodlatte’s district. Rep. Gutierrez has been bending over backwards to make friends with gettable Republicans. He held a similar event with Rep. David Valladao (R-CA) and it was a huge success for Valladao. But, then, Valladao supports immigration reform with a path to citizenship and wants reform to pass this year.
Cut it Loose like last time only worse. NO DAMNED MERCY. find a weakling in another district. Google the district cities. Then email the weakling . Give an address in that city in his district like # 12 Ben Hogan with a zip code you find on google. Tell that wobbler you are one of his fund raisers and then give him scorched earth. It is one every day until they vote. Your email will get to his desk. God Bless AMERICA.
YOU ASSHATS LEARNED *NOTHING* FROM COLORADO???
