Snakes in Congress Shoving Amnesty Down Our Throats AGAIN.



It’s back.

Like a demonic hydra, the push of the political class to grant instant amnesty to millions of MEXICAN Insurgents is again at the fore of becoming defacto law in Congress.

Harry Reid (D-NV) the Tyrant Wannabe who two weeks ago tried to silence talk radio hosts with an unprecedented letter from Congress to the CEO of Clearchannel to remove radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin, has set for a cloture vote TOMORROW – Wednesday – the push for Little Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) Amnesty Act – “The Dream Act”.

A dream for lawbreaking Illegal Mexicans to get away with a crime and get rewards for it, a nightmare for the rest of us.

UPDATE: 10-24 – Cloture vote FAILS

Wednesday Cloture Vote Set For DREAM Act Amnesty Bill

Last night, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) filed to invoke cloture on S. 2205, Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin’s (D-Ill.) new stand-alone DREAM Act amnesty bill. The cloture vote, for which 60 YES votes are necessary to prevent a filibuster on the measure, is set for Wednesday, October 24. Reid is attempting to bring this nightmarish amnesty bill to the floor under Senate Rule XIV without it ever having been debated in committee.

Durbin’s DREAM Act has made two notable changes from earlier attempts: (1) a provision repealing existing statutory provisions barring illegal aliens from being eligible for in-state tuition unless a U.S. citizen or legal resident is eligible regardless of state residence has been removed; and (2) the age limit for amnesty applicants has been added.

Under this bill, once an alien files an application for amnesty, the Federal government would be prohibited from deporting him. Moreover, with few exceptions, Federal officers would be prohibited from either using information from the application to deport the alien or sharing that information with another federal agency, under threat of up to $10,000 fine. Consequently, an alien’s admission that he has violated Federal immigration law could not be used against him – even if he never had any chance of qualifying for the DREAM Act amnesty in the first place.

The DREAM Act also would make illegal aliens eligible for Federal student loans and Federal work-study programs – another benefit that law-abiding foreign students cannot receive – all at taxpayer expense.

We might have thought this battle was won back in June, but as this political class (both parties) have demonstrated, they can care less what American citizens demand in terms of preserving our culture and our laws. The political class will appease Jihadist enemies and placate those seeking our deaths; they will reward illegal insurgents with perks and benefits American citizens themselves are not privy to; and they will destroy Amrican citizens who oppose their efforts to rule like a Soviet Politburo.

More calls are needed to stop this insanity.

But I am becoming of the opinion we are moving beyond the ability to get the Political Elite to listen to us without getting nasty.

Jefferson may end up being more of a prophet than a statesman.

It’s too bad most Americans have no idea what he said or stood for.

It certainly wasn’t amnesty for foreign insurgents, who break the laws and commit crimes Americans won’t do.
