    Pres Bush is not the only one for open borders and wanting to welcome most of Mexico into the US with open arms

    What these clowns did NOT mention was, the amnesty bill would have passed if all the Senate Dems would have voted for it



    Democrats woo Hispanics with immigration reform

    By Jane Sutton

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Florida (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidates wooed Hispanic voters on Saturday with pledges to keep working for immigration laws that would allow more of those already in the United States to become citizens and voters.

    Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and five other Democrats spoke to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials two days after the U.S. Senate killed a proposal that would have created a path to citizenship for more than 12 million illegal immigrants, many of them Hispanic.

    The association had supported the proposal and the candidates said they would keep working for a better version that weighed the contributions of immigrants as heavily as the need for border security.

    "I want my daughters to be raised in a community in which all people, and not just some, are considered part of the American family," Obama, an Illinois senator who would be the first black president, told the conference at Walt Disney World.

    Clinton, the New York senator who leads the Democratic field in national polls for the November 2008 election, said the United States must find a way to tighten border security while giving undocumented workers a sensible way to become legal workers even if they lack the high-tech skills favored for visa applications.

    "Many of us had relatives who came to this country without skills but have made a great contribution to themselves and their families and we're proud of them and we want to give more people that chance going forward," Clinton said.

    Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut characterized the recent immigration debate as a race to see "who out there can be the most anti-Hispanic." Hispanics are the largest and fastest-growing ethnic minority in the United States and make up about 15 percent of the population.

    All four Democratic candidates in the Senate -- Clinton, Obama, Dodd and Joe Biden of Delaware -- voted to advance the now-failed immigration proposal.

    One would think libs would learn from their mistakes


    Upsetting the Elite
    By Thomas Sowell

    With the White House, the leaders of both political parties, and the media all solidly behind the "comprehensive" immigration "reform" bill, how could it be stopped in the Senate, as it was last week?

    The people stopped it. That is what democracy is all about.

    When members of Congress began to be deluged with angry letters, phone calls, and e-mails from their constituents, they knew the game was over -- and that their careers could be over if they didn't pay attention to what the voters were saying.


    This bill was an insult to people's intelligence from start to finish, and the elites are continuing to insult people's intelligence after being defeated.

    Fraudulent arguments were followed by fraudulent procedures to rush this bill through the Senate without committee hearings, with restrictions on debate, and with the specifics of this huge bill being sprung on the Senate at the 11th hour, so that senators would be voting on something they barely had time to read.

    Among the fraudulent arguments was that illegal immigrants were taking "jobs that Americans won't do." What that really meant was that they were taking low wages that Americans wouldn't take.

    Another fraudulent argument was that "We can't find and deport 12 million people."

    A much bigger problem than these 12 million people are the tens of millions of additional immigrants who are virtually certain to come in, legally or illegally, if amnesty is extended.
