Reminds me of spousal abuse
The only argument the supporters of the amnesty bill have ... from Kennedy to Reid to Lindsay Graham ... is ok, we lied to you in the past, we abused you in the past, but you can trust us now.
Every one of the "track" and "screen" and "enforcement" provisions of this abortion of a "comprehensive reform" bill existed in one form or another in the 1986 amnesty bill and were never enforced.
That was for 3 million illegals. This bill will give amnesty to 12-20 million, including gang members and people who violated deportation orders.
This has happened before, this will happen again. How much abuse can we take, listening to promises that are never fulfilled, before we say "enough"?
It is not the American people who have to show politicians "trust", it is up to politicians to prove themselves trustworthy.
Give us five years of measurable enforcement ... punishing employers, deporting illegal criminals from our jails and prisons, and building the fence; and then, and only then, can we revisit what to "do" about long term illegals in this country.
Just stop abusing American people and all the people worldwide that are legally waiting in line to come to this county.
Michelle Malkin is doing a great job in covering the plethora of amendments that boil down to trying to put lipstick on a pig.
