Thread: SENATE VOTES TO END SPECIAL REGISTRATION

  1. #1
    Guest
    Last Thusday in a little-noticed ammendment to a massive appropriations bill, the Senate voted to cut off funds to the Justice Department and end the controversial Special Registration program.

    The House version of the bill contains no language cutting off appropriations to the program.

    The matter goes now to a Senate-House Conference Committee to resolve differences between the two bills.

    The Bush Administration has announced that it plans to lobby to continue the Special Registration program.

    Let's hope now negotiations between Senate, House and Bush will be successful, to at least curb the program...

    Well, to say the truth I do not want to see this Programme repealed -- I'm so fed up that I just want an excuse to go back to my country -- and this Special Registration thing is a very credible excuse.

    This is definitely not a hoax. The White House and Bush Administration are PUSHING to keep registration funding going, but if the bill goes through as it is - pretty perfect situation for INS dont you think?!

    They get to register ALL the muslim countries, and before any of the major countries come on the list, like India, or Mexico, or China, which have MILLIONS of people here, the funding will run out! Great strategy on INS's part.

    to "ms":

    No, but it may be that no other countries will be added to the list. Unless Administration and INS are being totally stupidified...

    I don't think it's clever on the INS and Administration part to be slick and treat people not equally - why should Muslim be sacrificed and Indians, Filipinos, and Mexicans saved? This is not equality and justice, but injustice and discrimination!
