Sell Outs! See the 68 U.S. Senators Who Voted for Amnesty

There’s good news and bad news. Which would you like first?

Very well, we’ll do the bad news first. Here you go: 68 U.S. senators (click here to see who) that are in office to defend our country, Constitution, and laws officially voted to reward illegal aliens with amnesty. You may muse: Are they frauds? Dangerously incompetent? Have they just sold out to special interests? Who knows. The only sure thing is that these men and women are not fit to serve the people.

Are you ready for the good news yet? Well, there are three things.

One – Baucus (MO), Harkin (IA), Johnson (SD), Levin (MI), Rockefeller (WV) are retiring.

Two – Your chance to replace many others is coming up in a few months. Here is a list of the senators who voted for amnesty and are up for reelection:

  • Vote Begich (AK) out in 2014
  • Vote Pryor (AR) out in 2014
  • Vote Udall (CO) out in 2014
  • Vote Coons (DE) out in 2014
  • Vote Durbin (IL) out in 2014
  • Vote Landrieu (LA) out in 2014
  • Vote Cowan (MA) out in 2014
  • Vote Franken (MN) out in 2014
  • Vote Hagan (NC) out in 2014
  • Vote Shaheen (NH) out in 2014
  • Vote Udall (NM) out in 2014
  • Vote Graham (SC) out in 2014
  • Vote Merkley (OR) out in 2014
  • Vote Reed (RI) out in 2014
  • Vote Warner (VA) out in 2014

Three – Several of these senators are already unpopular, thanks to a pattern of voting against their constituents’ wishes.

Time to replace us!

Time to replace us!

What to do next?

Step 2: Research the Senate candidates in your state.

Step 3: Vote in November and send these unfit public servants packing. Whether they are corrupt or merely incompetent, we cannot afford to have them voting on our future.

  1. Funny, I don’t think I heard anyone talk about holding employers responsibility for the hiring of illegal workers which is pretty responsible in all of the sound bits regarding this debate. The focus has always been on securing the border, especially on the Republican side of the aisle. But history has shown, even if you build a fence, people will always find a way to go under, over, or through. So, you are right, the job and service incentives need to change. I would say the agricultural industry has always relied on very cheap labor (slavery, sharecroppers, illegals) to survive and thrive. It sounds like this industry really lobbied and is lobbying hard to keep certain commonsense requirements to a minimum.

    • That’s an excellent point about how agriculture has always relied on cheap or free labor. I never considered it. Per opensecrets.org, “agribusiness” has already spent over $35 million lobbying so far this year. It is suddenly becoming clear why McCain, Schumer, Rubio, Durbin, Graham, et al are so determined to sell out the country!
      You’re right, a border fence would not help with illegal immigration much, if at all. We do need a better handle on the border because of criminal activity – drug cartels, U.S. criminals evading prosecution, etc. But that’s a truly minor concern compared with the need to stop illegal immigration.

  2. Ruby Lee, I would like to hear your thoughts on what legislation you would have voted for if you were a senator?

    • Hi Henry – thanks for your comment! I would support an immigration bill that is primarily focused on STOPPING illegal immigration. Ronald Reagan made the same mistake of offering amnesty in 1986, in a nearly identical bill to what the U.S. Senate passed this week. Giving amnesty to 2 million illegals in exchange for some reasonable fines would end illegal immigration, Reagan said. Wrong! It acted as an incentive – illegal immigration increased by 600%! The 2013 amnesty is meant to apply to over 11 million illegals.

      The primary way a bill focused on stopping illegal immigration would work would be focusing on people who hire illegal workers, because they are the root cause of the problem. Hiring an illegal worker should be a felony that carries heavy fines and jail time. Enforcing this would fix 90% of the problem. If people can’t get a job here, they will stop coming. The border must also be secured. I don’t buy the whole “illegals are taking jobs Americans don’t want” line. Unemployment is nearly 8%, and Americans have always held those agricultural jobs. They do not want them now because people can hire illegals for a small fraction of what they paid American workers.

      Once significant and measurable progress is made and sustained over a period of at least ten years, we can talk about legitimizing people who are already in the country illegally. For people that remain throughout that time, I do not think they should be put in “the front of the line”, so to speak, obtaining citizenship before those who are waiting to legally immigrate here.

      Whew – that was a mouthful! Now, what kind of legislation would you vote for, Henry? :-)
