House Passes HR.10, The 9/11 Commission Bill, With Immigration Provisions Intact! [update]

Bookmark and Share

This is a great victory, yet not a finality, for our country's security and immigration policy. HR.10 is to implement the 9/11 commissions recommendations including Immigration provisions which restrict issuance of Drivers Licenses to illegal aliens, implements quicker deportations and limits on the acceptance of foreign consular identification cards.

The Senate Passed a 9/11 commission intelligence bill of their own a few days ago, though it lacks the strict immigration policies in the house bill.

The next step for the bills will be to head to a joint conference committee where the House and Senate will appoint conferees which will argue which provisions will stay and which will be removed. They could even add provisions.

It's going to be a tough fight for the immigration portions of the bill, but they are needed. You can't have a million unknown people flooding into your country, driving around with a valid ID allowing them to get benefits and board planes and still remain safe.

It's just common sense.

Ted at Crooked Timber is against the provisions and he's rallying against it.

Obsidian Wings rants on about how it's outsourcing torture.

Whatever. Expedited deportation is not meant to outsource torture. It's to get people out of our country because they are lawbreakers. They're here illegally, not because they are going to be tortured. If they were truly here avoiding persecution they would claim rufugee status, not sneak in and live here without telling anyone with hope they don't get discovered and deported.

unfortunately it's the common sense part on immigration the left has problems with. I say if you don't want to be here legally then we don't need you here.

This is good news.

I recently got yelled at for talking about "illegal aliens" instead of "undocumented workers" as though they just all lost a paper.

The US should have a workable procedure for issuing work permits and documenting alien workers. The kabuki dance down south is counter-productive and unacceptable. The truth is, the economy is based on the addictive drug of cheap labor which makes the issue of "common sense" quite slippery indeed, not to mention the security issue.
