68 U.S. Senators Sold Out to Special Interests and Voted for Amnesty this Week – Your Chance to Vote 20 of them Out of Office is Just Months Away!

The bad news is that 68 U.S. senators are either painfully stupid and ought to be under medical supervision… or (more likely) have sold out to special interests and are corrupt enough to sell the country out in a short-sighted amnesty agreement. Here’s the link to see exactly how people voted.

The good news your chance to vote many of them out is just around the corner!

  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? :-)
