It was sweet to watch Brian Bilbray take his oath as the new Congressman from California today, and hear him bear witness that he had been elected because of his strong stance on immigration enforcement [Politician won by anti-illegals stance
, Washington Times, 6/13/06].
"... the greatest scandal in America is not that one man broke the law but that 12 million illegal immigrants are in this country and Washington isn`t doing enough about it," Mr. Bilbray told his colleagues on the House floor. [...]"There was one issue and only one issue that allowed me to be elected," Mr. Bilbray said... "It was the fact the people in the 50th District wanted something done, they wanted a job and a message sent to Washington that now and here is the time to address illegal immigration."
Also notable today was Speaker Hastert`s announcement that he wanted the House to take a "long look" at the McKennedy amnesty bill [Hastert Deals Blow to Immigration Bill
, AP 6/13/06].
Hastert said hearings on the Senate bill should be held before appointing anyone to a House-Senate committee to negotiate a compromise immigration bill. Later, he said he was unsure what the House`s next move would be.
Hearings?! It would be delicious to drag the evil Senate bill
out into the light of day for the examination it deserves. The American people need to know how low their Senate has sunk — that it has regressed beyond mere irresponsibility into treasonous acts by handing control of our borders and immigration to Mexico City.
Could these events — Bilbray`s election and the House`s growing resistance to the North American Union
— be connected? Or perhaps the House friends of sovereignty have been doing their homework by reading the Senate`s poison. Either way.
