Immigration Reform Bill Finally Hits Senate Floor

 

 

 

 

” Debate finally began on the U.S. Senate floor last week on the bipartisan immigration reform bill seen as the best opportunity in a while — or for a while — to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws.”

 

     Keeping in mind all the recent revelations , can Congress and Washington really be trusted to do the right thing for America or are they most interested in further strengthening their own political careers ?

 

” The day the Senate began discussing the bill developed by the “gang of eight” senators — four Republicans and four Democrats — that would, among other things, provide a road map to citizenship for the nearly 11 million undocumented workers already in the United States and enhance border security, President Obama urged the Senate to “do the right thing” and pass the bill.”

 

   Fortunately there are still a few representatives of the people in DC but their numbers are small . We need to show them our support in every way possible if we are to avoid giving the Democrats carte blanche over the affairs of state for the next several generations .

 

” The Senate’s first full vote was to stave off a filibuster, an overwhelming 82 yeas to 15 nays. All 15 senators voting to block debate were Republicans who have criticized the bill: John Barrasso of Wyoming, John Boozman of Arkansas, Michael Crapo of Idaho, Ted Cruz of Texas, Michael Enzi of Wyoming, Charles Grassley of Iowa, James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Mike Lee of Utah, Jim Risch of Idaho, Pat Roberts of Kansas, Tim Scott of South Carolina, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Richard Shelby of Alabama and David Vitter of Louisiana.”

 

    Please offer these Senators all the support you can muster and tell your friends to do so as well . This is the fight of our lives . If political pandering is allowed to trump one of the few  legitimate government functions , border security , we as a nation are doomed .
