As was proven by their decision to ignore the dangerous aspects of illegal immigration and pass a sweeping amnesty bill. And what is worse, not only did the Senate pass the amnesty, they also removed the criminal penalties for being in the United States illegally.
I sometimes wonder about the short-sightedness of our so-called leadership here in this country. The illegal immigration lobby is anti-American (MEChA, etc) and is all about taking privileges that they have not earned. I do not buy the 'they do jobs no American would' argument- I think that if those jobs did not have illegal aliens doing them, the wages would rise so that Americans would actually do them. And I completely disagree with people like Teddy Kennedy, who only want illegal immigrants because they think (probably correctly) that the illegals will vote mostly Democrat.
However, the Democrats fail to realize that the illegal immigration lobby will only vote Democrat until they can get enough votes to realize their true dream- taking the southwestern United States and making it part of Mexico. The Democrats are too cowardly to stand up for their own countrymen, and they certainly lack the intestinal fortitude to stand up to the illegal immigration lobby- even though the protests are decidedly anti-American- nothing promoted by MEChA could be anything else.
I hope that the coming elections provide Senator Kyl of Arizona with some assistance to bring the Senate to its senses. And I hope and pray that the illegal immigration lobby has over-reached with these massive protests. I think most real Americans, like myself, are pretty tired of law-breakers lecturing us about what they 'deserve' and how they should be allowed to gain citizenship even though they clearly do not respect us.
