Democrat Decries His Party`s Amnesty Bill Christmas Present


You have got to be kidding,
Democrats!

Nearly half of my party members in
Congress joined with Treason Lobby Congressman
Luis
Gutierrez
(D-Ill) to

introduce
the Comprehensive Immigration Reform for
America`s Security and Prosperity Act of 2009 (CIR ASAP)
on December 15, 2009.

Just in time for

Christmas
, they have let the 25 million Americans
who are either unemployed or relegated to part-time work
know that the
elected elites
in my party simply don`t care about
them.

According to the

language
of this piece of treasonous perfidy,
amnesty would be offered to every illegal alien now
here. That

number is in dispute
, but probably some 12 million
and likely many more would come out of the woodwork if
this abomination were to somehow slither through. And we
know that President Obama would be willing to sign such
legislation—based on his past statements and his
appointment of an
open border
Homeland Security Secretary,

Janet Napolitano.

Folks, we are talking equity here.
In a high tech era, where
China, India
and others are racing forward to surpass us in promising
areas such as environmental controls (China) and
high grade engineering education
(India) and many
others where we have sold our technology cheap, now is
obviously not the time to increase future flows of

low-skilled, low-wage immigrants.

Last time I looked, we were running

a huge federal deficit
, with projections of same
running far into the future. In the opinion of many
analysts the USA is actually bankrupt, issuing dollars
which the world is taking with less and less enthusiasm.

But then there is no really good
time for legislation such as this. It simply shows how
far out of touch these elites are with real folks who
are suffering real deprivations as this recession
stretches into what many believe will be years of flat
or worse job opportunities.

The bill specifically offers these
law breaker aliens a

fix-up-your-immigration-status-
price of $500.
Imagine. I can`t even rent a low price car for a week on
that amount. But I say that no price is high enough for
keeping our Rule of Law intact.

The Obama Administration has shown
no real capacity to enforce our borders and ports. This
bill would weaken even the present situation. I bet the

immigration lawyers
will find the bill most helpful
in expanding their capacity to protect those presently
here illegally. And we the taxpayers will pay the bill.

While many of the states—including

Georgia
, where one of my children lives—are getting
tougher on enforcement, a new amnesty bill will
undermine and override such efforts.

At a time when there are vast
legitimate concerns about who is coming here, based on
reports of
terrorism in Europe
and

home-grown jihadists
here, are we anxious to keep
the flood gates open?

Or is this the moment when a
responsible Congressional leadership and Administration
would use their present power to enact an immigration
moratorium, which could allow unemployed Americans the
chance to find jobs?

I suspect that come the midterm
elections, if long past history is a guide, the
Democrats will lose some 30 seats in the House. But they
could lose many more, if they try to ram this obscene
CIR ASAP down the throats of Americans.

In fact, if another amnesty passes,
I am going to change parties, vote Independent, and pray
we can find a candidate who represents our country—not
these politicians who have the

chutzpah
to attack America when it is in its present vulnerable
condition.

Who are these people? They must be
crazy or feckless or probably most likely in the pocket
of the same business interests and ethnic/ideological
advocacy groups whose efforts so far have allowed over

50 million newcomers,
most in the last 12 years, to
invade America.

How Gutierrez and the other
Democrats in Congress who joined him can go home to
their states for Christmas and face their constituents I
simply cannot fathom.
