The U.S. House of Representatives kills the Immigration Bill

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 1:32 pm

On Tuesday Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, made an unusual announcement:  This August the House will hold herrings on the Senate Immigration Bill – that’s the subject of today’s Talking Points memo.

Off the record, House leaders let it be known that the Immigration Bill is dead – at least this year.  All AP reported is that the bill was a victim of election year concerns and the House, and Conservatives impeccable opposition of citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants.

Which is totally wrong.

It was a victim senate pandering.  Senators watched the drive-by coverage of immigrant rallies, absorbed misguided punditry from hot-dog belt-way intellectuals, and sacrificed their principals.

The American people want their borders secure.  It’s that simple.  Post 9/11; this is not rocket-science – its not debatable.  The American people want their legislators to act on their will and their courts from stopping their will.  Americans don’t want a so-called ‘compressive’ bill that repeats the mistakes of past immigration bills, including no enforcement mechanisms.

They want document fraud, identity theft behavior punished. They want illegal aliens deported. Now!  And they want their neighborhoods back.

They want to stop paying taxes for law breaker who demand every social service available while waving foreign flags on U.S. streets.

But most of all, Americans want their politicians to stop calculating how to win the illegal immigrant vote, and do right by citizens who voted them into office in the first place!

No bill is better than a bad bill.  The U.S. House of Representatives derives an applause for killing this turkey.

And that’s the memo.
