Apparently Weâ€™re Getting Amnesty Whether We Like It Or Not
By: J.J. Jackson
The Senate is acting a lot like four-year-olds told they can’t have something they really want. They’re bound and determined to keep pushing until they get it! There is a new amnesty plan for illegal aliens being floated since the original McCain/Kennedy Amnesty appears dead on arrival.
Speaking of Senator “I am influenced by bad money so therefor we have to regulate it” McCain, I heard him again trumpeting the claim that there are jobs Americans just will not do. And even claiming that if lettuce farmers offered $50/hour for the whole season Americans STILL wouldn’t do the job of picking the heads of lettuce in the fields. Again I counter that if you take the Welfare away (and even if you don’t) any American in need of a job that wouldn’t work 40hrs for $2000 a week should probably have their citizenship revoked and they should be promptly deported to the Socialist paradise of France.
But I don’t want to digress about McCain’s continuing idiocy.
The latest non-amnesty amnesty plan is basically a repackaging of what has already been offered and the American people have sounded off squarely against. The only real difference is that, like the spoiled four-year-old, they have tried to make their request more palatable giving in only a little bit. The four-year-old who wants the candy bar and is told no by his mother then comes back and says, “Ok, how about you only give me half?” The Senate has tried the same tactic saying “Ok, we’ve heard you. So how about we only let 8 to 9 million of the over 11 million illegals stay. Huh? What do you say?”
I’ll tell you what I say. No. let me spell that for you â€“ N O!
What is it with you dunderheads? Can’t you get it through your thick skull that we do not want to reward illegal aliens for breaking our laws?
The new Senate proposal says that if you are here illegally and have been so for less than two years you had better leave – no, we REALLY mean it! While those that have been in the United States between two and five years will be trusted to turn themselves in and “declare” themselves and allowed to stay. Forget the fact that they have broken the law. Those that have been breaking the law for longer than five years would be granted guest worker status and put on an 11-year path towards becoming a citizen.
What’s wrong with that picture? We are letting those that have been in more gross violation of the law off the hook? This is like saying we’ll only execute people that murdered one person but mass murderers get only life in prison.
Here’s a plan you guys and gals in Congress should consider. I call it the “You’re here illegally? We’re going to deport you” Plan. It’s simple. We start collecting illegal aliens and we ship them back to where they came from. Gee what a novel idea!
Instead what we are left with is the Senate trying to negotiate with the American people about exactly how much amnesty to grant and to whom. I though that you had to be at least thirty years old to be elected to the Senate? Apparently however a bunch of four-year-olds got some really good fake IDs.
