Then Hastert Steps Up...

...on immigration at least. According to a story today posted on Breitbart.com, the Republican Speaker of the House is not too kindly inclined towards the Senate's rush to amnesty. Speaking on the recently-passed Senate bill that allows virtually any illegal alien to blithely ignore American laws and still be rewarded by citizenship,

"We're going to take a long look at it," Hastert said late Tuesday.

House Majority Leader John Boehner agreed. "I think we should know clearly what's in the Senate bill," Boehner said. But he added there are lots of ways to understand its contents.

This is wonderful news, if only the House leadership can continue to stand fast. The Senate bill is a complete disaster, and should definitely not be passed in its current form. The House at least is concentrating on enforcement (and a REAL FENCE) first, which is definitely the way to go. As I have posted before, what is it about ILLEGAL that our Senators cannot understand. For bloviating drunkards like Teddy Kennedy, at least one can understand his eagerness to employ illegals so he doesn't have to pay American wages. But for a Arizonian such as John McCain, what the heck is he thinking?

If the House can stand firm, perhaps we can get our borders secured and then start figuring out how to handle the illegals. And we should definitely make LEGAL immigrants' paths easier to citizenship, as opposed to spending time on our illegal immigrants. LEGAL versus ILLEGAL, Congresspeople. What is it about ILLEGAL that is so hard for you to understand? Personally, I as I wrote in a previous post, I want to see the US government fix the USCIS, not waste time on illegal aliens who do not respect us and are trying to subvert our standards for their own selfish reasons.

So congratulations to the House for at least standing up for CITIZENS' RIGHTS for a change instead of worrying about those who under US law, are here illegally and are deserving of nothing except a quick boot out of the country. Give your Senators and Representatives a call to urge them to support the House's stance- not the amnesty proposed by the Senate. We already had that once and it didn't work out too well, if we recall Simpson-Mazzoli.
