It's a race to see who can sell out the American people - and citizenship in general - first over in the Senate. Senator Arlen Specter, in cahoots with John McCain, Edward Kennedy, Mel Martinez and the White House, seem to be trying to push for the Illegal Alien Amnesty bill before the end of the year.
After meeting privately with Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) earlier this week, Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) said Thursday he is moving forward with plans to resurrect the languishing immigration reform measure before the end of this year.
"I'd like to do it," Specter said. "We have time."
Specter said he already has talked to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) about his intentions, adding that he expects Frist will discuss the matter with Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) when the two leaders meet later this week. The Judiciary chairman said he is also engaging the White House on the issue...
Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.), a chief backer of comprehensive reform, said Thursday he also believes Congress has time to move forward. The chamber is expected to remain in session through the end of December...
Claiming that the election shows that American people want amnesty, Specter said it's time to act. Hmm, that's funny I thought the election, where more than 70% of Arizonans voted yes on anti-illegal alien Propositions, showed that Americans don't want illegal aliens here.
Funny how they overlook what the American people want just a week or two after the election.

Cynthia Tucker Sells-Out Fellow African Americans
Cynthia Tucker used her most recent editorial to rant against people that want to reform our immigration policies. She warned that our economy would collapse without an unlimited supply of illegal immigrants. Of course, she offered no evidence beyond her wagging finger. That’s because there is none. Even liberal, pro-immigration New York Times economist Paul Krugman admits that illegal immigration is a drain on our economy.
Cynthia let’s look at the facts. African Americans are hurt by illegal immigration hurts more than most, and many reject the open border/amnesty immigration policies that you promote. But don’t take my word for it. Listen to a former director of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation:
Frank Morris has been outraged as he has watched leaders in the African American community stand arm-in-arm with Latino groups in support of immigrant rights.
Morris, the former director of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, a retired college professor and a current board member of the Center for Immigration Studies, said immigrants compete directly for jobs with African Americans, driving down wages and working conditions while in the country illegally.
“As long as there is an available labor supply, (immigrants) will be preferred to African Americans,” Morris said. “Employers prefer illegal immigrants because they can be exploited without any recourse.”
Robert Brown, an Emory University professor who studies African American politics, said many blacks are “less than sympathetic” to the plight of immigrants. Although many aren’t willing to speak publicly on the issue for fear of angering Latinos, a peek inside the editorial pages of African American newspapers, glimpses into town hall meetings and a look at national polls all indicate that many black Americans are uneasy about supporting immigrant rights.
When will Cynthia Tucker start shining her light on what illegal immigration is doing to the paychecks of middle class Americans instead of fighting for the multinational corporations that want to bring third world wages to America?
