Stop the Amnesty Madness!
CNN evening news broadcaster Lou Dobbs' short list for the "Top 5 Dumbest Things in the Immigration Bill":
"5) Taxpayers will pay for the immigration lawyers for illegal aliens if working in agriculture."
Why should taxpayers foot the bill for defending known lawbreakers? Oh, that's right, the only people Attorney General Gonzales' DOJ don't legally protect are Border Patrol Agents like Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean who are serving long prison terms for trying to apprehend a known drug runner. Meanwhile, Gonzales continues on at full throttle with The Decider's approval, as our legal system hurls off the track.
"4) Illegal aliens would be given legal status just one day after their application is filed even if a background check is not completed."
That should work out well.... will they also get the vote immediately too?
"3) Gang members are eligible for amnesty if they renounce their gang status."
Is that the "Cross My Heart or Hope to Die" gang? No? Oh, it's the murdering, raping, robbing, drug-dealing thugs gangs. Now, that's really dumb.
"2) Borders do not have to be secure before the amnesty program begins."
Can't cut off the flow of cheap labor.... or do you still think this amnesty bill is in your best interests?
"1) $2,600,000,000,000 - That is the cost the Heritage Foundation estimates to cover the retirement benefits of 12,000,000 illegal aliens if this amnesty bill becomes law."
As budget-busting as this figure is, almost everyone agrees 12 million is much too low a number.... estimates run from 20 to 30 million illegal aliens, which would double the hit on Social Security. The Decider never liked the Social Security program anyway, so for him it's a win-win.
Heard enough? Had enough? Call, email or write your Senator today to stop this runaway, anti-U.S. citizen legislation.
