The Gang of Eight bill was never “immigration reform.” All it did was give into the demands of special interest groups like Big Business and open borders supporters.
Last night the bill got worse.
With a final vote of 13-5, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved sending S.744 to be considered by the entire Senate.
Backed by the White House, Senate leadership from both parties vowed to act on this bill as early as Monday, June 3. That’s just 10 days from now!
With only days to fight this, your help is critical in stopping the Gang of Eight legislation! Before the Memorial Day weekend starts, will you e-mail your U.S. Senator today and tell him or her to oppose S.744?
The bill might be called “immigration reform” but these “reforms” only gut border security and law enforcement and open the door for more than 34 million immigrants to come to the U.S. over the next decade.
With the media and pro-amnesty supporters from both political parties hammering the Senate, many U.S. Senators are on the fence about this bill, including some who voted against amnesty in 2006 and 2007.
Does this sound like “immigration reform” to you? Consider what the bill does:
• Only requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to submit a plan to secure the borders in order to start amnesty for the estimated 11-12 million illegal aliens in the U.S.
• Allows members of street gangs and criminals to receive amnesty.
• Permits illegal aliens to sue the government for amnesty, but does not require them to pay back-taxes or learn English.
• Allows the open borders and pro-amnesty lobbies to stop enforcement measures by filing lawsuits.
• Essentially halts all deportations by allowing every intercepted illegal alien to apply for amnesty and prohibits their deportation until the application is adjudicated.
• U.S. taxpayers will be forced to pay for legal fees incurred while illegal alien fights deportation at the Attorney General’s sole and unreviewable discretion.
• Fast-tracks green cards and citizenship to illegal aliens after just five years if they claim to have entered the U.S. before the age of 16 and meet certain criteria.
