The Living Dead

February 8, 2011

The bill that can’t seem to die an honorable death is once again being resurrected, thanks to the efforts of Lindsay Grahamnesty and Juan McCain. Mark Krikorian has the bad news.

There isn’t much in his analysis that I disagree with, although I’m probably more anxious about the prospects of an amnesty push in the new Congress than he is. You would think that with Republicans exercising a substantial governing majority the idea of another broad-based amnesty would be dead on arrival. However, nothing is ever certain when you have a political class of such dubious moral character, always eager to cut deals that would encroach upon or negate entirely the birthright of their constituents.

We all know what Speaker Boehner thinks about the idea of amnesty, and if his past statements are any indication, he is not a fan. Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell has also spoken out-as recently as last week-against the concept of conferring permanent citizenship upon millions of illegal aliens. However, we can’t rely upon words in order to keep this nation secure from yet another disastrous immigration bill. Despite the slightly more favorable makeup of the current Congress, there are still dozens upon dozens of members who are fighting to enact their retrograde open borders policies. Whether it’s the Democratic leadership in the U.S. Senate, Charles Schumer, Dick Durbin and Majority Leader Reid-who want to drum up reliable voters for future elections-or the consistently wrongheaded path of Senators McCain and Graham, the drive to turn back the clock has not slackened one bit since the voters chastised our politicians in the previous election cycle.

That is why you need to work harder than ever to prevent these bad ideas from being enacted into law. If Congress had its way, we would already be greenlighting citizenship for over 20 million illegals, including potential future terrorists, right now. The only thing standing in the way of this horrible scenario is the energized, aggravated American electorate. That’s why we need to keep our eye on the ball and continue to fight the likes of Senator Graham until they get the message that their ideas on immigration are not welcome in the halls of Congress.

It’s time to bury amnesty, once and for all.
