Thread: Trouble in the Senate

  1. #1
    WASHINGTON -- Sen. John Cornyn of Texas vowed Friday to oppose a bipartisan immigration measure that would put millions of illegal immigrants on track toward legalization, saying the bill would "encourage further disrespect for our laws." The Texas Republican signaled his intention to oppose the bill, by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., amid signs that a tentative compromise among Senate Judiciary Committee members may be collapsing. The Senate faces a showdown on immigration next week...Most of the committee embraced a tentative compromise before Congress began a weeklong recess, with plans to return and vote on a final version Monday. But immigration advocates said the agreement may be disintegrating as committee staff members struggle to draft a bill.

    Senator Cornyn (R-Texas) understands that the American people oppose amnesty for illegal aliens...and he is listening.

    NO AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS.

    Sen cornyn is just one person that had already stated that the only guest worker program worth being put to a vote is the one he co-authored with sen.kyl.

    The commitee will approave the bill with bi-partisan support, and if cornyn vote no, then so be it,cornyn is just one vote, not 5.

    SunDevilUSA,

    I love the hate you have for those brown people, even though you are a recent immigrant your self. Long live the KKK!

    Here is full story:

    Senator Kennedy is one of those few people who, with best intentions, do worst of all harms.
    I wonder, why did he push for his version (which is widely perceived as "amnesty")? Didn't he know that his version of "Guest Worker program" would be the easiest of all to defeat - even in Senate?

    If Senate passed Guest Worker program, it would still be stalled or removed from the Bill during House-Senate conference talks.
    But at least the Senate would go on record as one that supported better approach than House did.

    Tancredo must now thank Senator Kennedy (latter seem not to realize that it's not 60's out there, but 00's).
    Largely due to efforts of Senator Kennedy, there won't be any "tough" negotiations during House-Senate conference talks: Senate will kill his proposal alltogether, before it even reaches the floor.

    This is very sad, not because of a guest worker program, but sad because after years of ignoring reform Congress has an opportunity now to take upon the issue and is obvious that pre-election anxiety is preventing them from taking any serious action.
    Honestly, I don't think anything at all is going to be presented to the President. Most in the Senate want a limited guest worker program and most in the House do not. The coming elections only complicate things.
    It's also interesting the these people are suddenly opposing a guest worker program, the foundation of a guest worker program has been re-affirmed over and over and over again by BIA and the Courts through Arai.

    Last year Howard Dean predicted that 2006 elections will be staged upon scapegoating immigrants.

    Looks like he knew what he was talking about.
