President Bush Resurrects Amnesty Plans For Illegal Aliens

Bookmark and Share

Angered and frustrated. That's how I feel about President Bush's continued pushing of giving rights to illegal aliens who have broken our laws and used our services costing taxpayers over $10 billion a year

Washington Times

President Bush yesterday moved aggressively to resurrect his plan to relax rules against illegal immigration, a move bound to anger conservatives just days after they helped re-elect him.

The president met privately in the Oval Office with Sen. John McCain to discuss jump-starting a stalled White House initiative that would grant legal status to millions of immigrants who broke the law to enter the United States.


While the president was huddling with Mr. McCain, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell was pushing the plan during a visit to Mexico City.

"The president remains committed to comprehensive immigration reform as a high priority in his second term," he told a meeting of the U.S.-Mexico Binational Commission. "We will work closely with our Congress to achieve this goal."

But key opponents in Congress said Mr. Bush's proposal isn't going anywhere.

"An amnesty by any other name is still an amnesty, regardless of what the White House wants to call it," said Rep. Tom Tancredo, Colorado Republican and chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus.

"Their amnesty plan was dead on arrival when they sent it to the Congress in January, and if they send the same pig with lipstick back to Congress next January, it will suffer the same fate," he said.

As many of you know Tom Tancredo is my hero! I sincerely love the guy over this issue alone.

I don't understand why Bush is pushing this shit. In my opinion it is not just to stroke the Hispanic vote, it is to try and avoid the issue altogether.

John McCain said at the RNC "He has not wavered. He has not flinched from the hard choices. He will not yield."

Yeah, well how about facing up to this issue and making the hard choice huh George? How about enforcing the law and actually protecting our southern border?

You too McCain. I normally like you, but pushing this garbage continuously is ignorant.

Tipped by: In Search Of Utopia, who loves when right people bash Bush. The fact is I could give a crap about Bush, I'm an issues man. I care about the issues not King Georgie.

Amen Digger! It's the Purpose, Never The Personalities. We live very close to the border, and we see the effects of the Invasion From Mexico on a daily basis.

GUEST WORKER PROGRAM?? It NEVER works. The "guests" marry, have kids, don't go home. It will be a disaster. The illegals here are already calling Bush's ridiculous policy "Amnesty 2."

I would settle for enforcement of the laws that are already on the books. If you were to muster the entire Border Patrol in one place, it would amount to just over 1 Division. We have more troops defending the Korean border than we have Border Patrol Defending BOTH U.S. borders.

The Border Patrol is reduced to playing "Catch And Release" with 99% of the illegals they do detain. It's disgraceful.

Prediction? Nothing will change. The Republicans want cheap workers, and the Donks think they can get additional voters.

Who will pay? All of us will.

I agree with everything said here, in my opinion, the United States is already in financial trouble. All that will happen here if Bush goes forward is that more illegals will come over her come high or high water as they do when just a crack of hope is opened for them. This will break the back of our financial instutue because they have no insurance, they will apply for welfare, they have no education so many of them will turn to drinking and drugs with nothing else to do. We the tax payers will have to pay for them just being here. Many of them here are not only illegally here, but breaks the law other ways. It really upsets me to think what is up ahead if this continues. The Bible talks about "The Great Tribulation;" (Mattew 24) if the United States falls, the whole world will follow. It will not be a pretty site. Thank you
