The McKennedy Clan: Bipartisan Betrayers

So I
just read 60-odd pages of treasonous twaddle known
formally as S.1033 or

The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act.

Not to
spoil the ending but…

This is the single worst piece of legislation I have
ever read. And I am including

everything
the

gay/lesbian caucus
spewed out during the 90`s.

If I were asked to specify the flaws I would say they
begin with "Mr. McCain introduced the

following bill
…"
and end with "the end."

Senators
McCain (R-AZ) and Kennedy (D-MA) have put together a
plan that, with a bit of luck, should complete

Mexico`s conquest
of the

United States
by the end of the decade.     

A merger
made in heaven, I imagine

San Diego
will look exactly

like Tijuana
but with

workman`s comp,


subsidized housing
, and

penicillin

Oh wait,
that is what San Diego looks like now.

This

transfer of title
does require a few concessions, of course. 

Instead
of the

Bald Eagle
our national bird will now be the cara
cara

[Vdare.com note:

A
vulture-like creature, the


national bird of Mexico
,

"the
consummate opportunist and will happily sit among
buzzards dining on rotten carrion (particularly road
kill) and will also attack and kill mammals, birds and
reptiles-whatever it takes to satiate its indiscriminate
appetite."
]

and we would have to extend

Cesar Chavez Day
to Cesar Chavez

Awareness
Month.

Not a
bad trade, I guess. But what do we get?

I delved
into the details of the McKennedy Plan. The

Congressional Findings
preamble for S.1033 include
these interesting assertions:


  • (3) Federal
    immigration policies must adhere to the United
    States tradition as a nation of immigrants and
    reaffirm this Nation`s commitment to family unity,
    economic opportunity, and humane treatment.

My translation:  We want to reward illegal aliens with
citizenship—and, as a bonus, grant it to all their
relatives!

In no way do I

resemble
an economist, but I think increasing
the number of eligible recipients—as the McCain-Kennedy
amnesty must do—just might also increase the
expense to local government. 


  • (9) Illegal
    immigration creates an underclass of workers who are
    vulnerable to fraud and exploitation.

Hmm.
Illegal immigration does create an underclass of
workers—they`re called Americans.

And this is what the Wonder Twins want to do about the
11-15 (20?)
million illegal aliens living here today:


SEC.124
. "Combating Human Smuggling would provide


  • (b)(4)(A) visas
    for victims of trafficking and other crimes

A
man hires another man to sneak him across the U.S.
border and he is a "victim" who is being

"preyed on."
 

Right…

With this legislation in place, it is better for the
"victim"
if he and his smuggler are caughthe
would receive a visa
.  


SEC. 201-203
includes an appropriation for
reimbursement to states for

incarceration
costs associated with illegal aliens. 

The cost of housing

criminal aliens
is so high we have to write new
laws
to cover it—and McKennedy is cool with
that…this is madness.

SEC.302. deals with the "Admission of Essential
Workers."

We went from illegal aliens to undocumented immigrants
to essential workers?


Remember
when

Black Panthers
became

social activists?

Under McKennedy, illegal aliens currently residing in
the U.S. can apply for an

adjustment of status
without the fear of being
"captured."
 

Then there`s SEC. 308—called (no
kidding!
) the

"Willing Worker-Willing Employer Electronic Job
Registry."

(Note: not the Willing Worker-Willing Employer [Wage
Unspecified] Electronic Job Registry
.] A sample:


(b) Recruitment of
United States Workers—Before the completion of evidence
of employment for a potential nonimmigrant worker
[under the] the
Immigration and Nationality Act, an employer shall
attest that the employer has posted in the Job Registry
for not less than 30 days in order to recruit United
States workers. An employer shall maintain records for
not less than 1 year demonstrating why United States
workers who applied were not hired.

This is a fig-leaf appeasement provision. But at least
McKennedy acknowledge the

need
to employ

Americans first


Hypocrisy
—the homage that vice pays to virtue!

One column isn`t long enough to address this bill fully,
so I have limited my objections to the top two.

  1. The only reason
    Congress is interested in clamping down on

    coyotes
    and

    rogue employers
    seems to be—because they haven`t
    been sharing the booty with Washington!

S.1033 assesses a fine of up to $2000 along with various
filing fees to each illegal alien who applies for the
program. 

Multiply that by 10-15 million and well, just do the
math. [VDARE.com
note: $20-30 Billion Dollars
]

Side note: This is a lot like our drug policy, which
basically says "all drugs are illegal…except for the
ones we make."

More to the point, what concerns me is our government`s
desire to profit off the

desperation
of others. 

I
don`t like

illegal immigration.
I think we need to limit our

legal immigration
as well. 

However, I am in no way indifferent to the plight of
those who reside in bleak, Third World countries.  Those
who would do anything to escape oppression are worthy of
pity and deserve a helping hand.

But there is a big difference between what we could do
and what we can do.

And there are a finite number of American hands.

But our government is not looking upon the illegal
immigration as either a problem to be solved or a people
to save—it sees a

money tree.

  1. For my second
    objection, I will have to reference one of my
    favorite movies,

    Blazing Saddles.

There`s this scene where criminals are being

recruited
to run a new sheriff out of town.  The
applicants step forward, recite their
rap sheet
as a resume and, if hired, are deputized
with law enforcement badges.

A
gang of Mexican bandits are hired. But when offered the
silver-star badges they cackle and say "Badges…we
don`t need no steenking badges."

S.1033 has no language pertaining to consequences should
any illegal aliens choose not to participate in the
new program
.

Were S.1033 to pass, it would give illegal aliens the
option
of stepping forward, paying fines, receiving
a temporary visa and maybe getting on the list for
full-fledged citizenship.

But why should they?  Heck, I wouldn`t.  The status-quo
is far more appealing—and less expensive.  What are they
paying for?

An illegal alien has lived here, worked here and
benefited from
myriad federally-funded programs
for most of his
life without consequence—why should he change?  If it
ain`t broke, don`t fix it, right?

Badges? We don`t need no stinking badges!

Good job, McKennedy Clan.  You just wrote an Orderly
Immigration Act that has nothing to do with order or
immigration.

Just Reconquista.
