Senate puts off immigration action
Senate leaders agreed Monday that they would wait until June to take final action on a bipartisan plan to give millions of unlawful immigrants legal status.
The unlikely coalition that brokered the deal, led by Sens. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., and Jon Kyl (news, bio, voting record), R-Ariz., is plotting to protect the agreement from "deal-breaker" changes that would sap its support. The group will hold daily meetings starting Tuesday to determine whether proposed revisions would sink what they are calling their "grand bargain."
We did this. Our supreme rulers wanted to railroad this through and shove it down our collective throats. They announced a "deal" thinking that the good sheeple of the United States would accept the grand wisdom of the commissars and return to watching American Idol.
We didn't. (some of us never watch American Idol) We flooded them with angry phone calls, faxes and emails. We said NO to amnesty.
We've put them back on their heels but we haven't won yet. This bill is still capable of destroying our country as we know it. We need to keep up the pressure and make sure that our politicians know that we said NO to amnesty this last weekend and we will still say NO to amensty in June.
