    "TO NEGOTIATE IS NOT TO DO AS ONE WISHES"!

    Is it so hard to comprehend?
    Sen. Kennedy may be a good person, but he lost his mind somewhere along the road because he still acts as if it was 1961 out there..

    He killed it.. If the Guest Worker program doesn't pass Senate, Senator Kennedy will be personally liable for it...

    On March 27, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed by a 12-6 vote a McCain-Kennedy-style amnesty and temporary bill (no bill number). It may be amended into Sen. Bill Frist's (R-TN) bill, S 2454, as soon as March 28 on the Senate floor. The plan incorporates: (1) a new "temporary" agricultural worker program (as proposed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein [D-CA]); (2) another "guestworker" visa program "capped" at 400,000 per year (as proposed by Sen. Ted Kennedy [D-MA]); and (3) an amnesty for illegal aliens who have worked in the United States for six years and who wait another five before applying for adjustment of status to lawful permanent residence, provided the illegal alien pays $2,000 in fines, has a background check done, and demonstrates a working knowledge of English (as proposed by Sen. Lindsey Graham [R-SC]). Other bad "reforms" include an amendment by Sen. **** Durbin (D-IL) to de-criminalize illegal presence and another by Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS) to open up more visas for alien nurses as long as related shortages exist. Amendments to curb the overall impact of these visa and citizenship giveaways offered by Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) were defeated. The full Senate may have as much as two weeks to consider amendments on the floor.
