North Carolina Representative Sue Myrick has pledged to reintroduce a congressional bill entitled the Scott Gardner Act which would make detention and deportation of illegal aliens convicted of DWI mandatory. This is a common sense bill. First of all the immigrant is here illegally. Secondly, they are putting the lives of American citizens and legal residents at risk. The bill passed in the House last year, but failed in the Senate.
on Monday, flanked by the families of some victims lost to crashes involving illegal immigrants accused of driving drunk, Myrick said she's ready to push for a second time for a federal law to crack down.
"It would make (driving while impaired) grounds for mandatory detention and deportation of illegal aliens who are convicted of DWI," Myrick, R-Charlotte, said.
... named for the Gaston County man killed when an illegal immigrant driving drunk crashed into his family's car during July 2005.
When that driver, Ramiro Gallegos, pled guilty it was his sixth DWI conviction.
If Ramiro Gallegos had been detained and deported the first time it would have helped, but under the current porous borders he probably would have returned to this country rather quickly.
Also see the story of Amy Kortlang whose killer was arrested 4 times in California for Drunk Driving and even after being deported returned to hit her head on killing her.
While this is a good bill we need to secure our borders for it to be effective.
Does anyone see the irony of this? Rep Sue Myrick, a big opponent of illegal immigration is riled up over Bank of America's new credit card that illegal immigrants might be able to use. Does anyone else see the irony in her solution?
US Rep Myrick wants to punish Bank of America for issuing a credit card that illegals could use.... by moving her account to another bank that is sending thousands of North Carolina jobs to India.

Myrick joins fight against BofA credit card
U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick, a Charlotte Republican, has joined the protest against a new Bank of America Corp. credit card that can be used by illegal immigrants...
Myrick has typically been an advocate of the city's big banks, and her campaign reaps donations from their workers
Myrick plans to move her accounts to Wachovia Bank.
Wachovia is in the process right now of offshoring 80% of its processing work to India.
"Wachovia looks at outsourcing tasks" Mar 27, 2007 As part of an ongoing outsourcing effort, Wachovia Corp. is looking at shifting some payments functions handled by a business group in Charlotte and Winston-Salem to a firm in India.
...By the end of this year, Wachovia is looking to cut annual costs by up to $1 billion through outsourcing, improved processes and tightening expenses. The initiative is expected to eliminate up to 4,000 jobs http://www.charlotteobserver.com/123/story/58190.html
I wonder if Myrick will be getting her donations from India?

I seriously doubt if we Americans will ever get it.
The real battle isn't between the conservatives or liberals or Democrats or Republicans. As George Carlin said in his famous rant http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acLW1vFO-2Q politicians are about making us think we have some control and the liberal versus conservative is all about dividing us so that the people can be controlled.
The USA has been in a longstanding economic war and sadly we've been beaten, thanks to our own government and elite just so they could have cheap labor and new markets. They called it free trade and open borders and together the rich and powerful got richer.
BOA is one example of a mega international corporation without any loyalty to America or Americans. We were forced to bail them out. Forget the Parties and vote for candidates.
