Pelosi and Reid Need to Step Down

By       (Page 1 of 2 pages)   3 comments

I don't know which of these two I have come to despise more; Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi. For me, these two are no different than any other neo-con and I have no use for any one of them and none for what now masquerades as the Democrat faction of our government.

Senate Leader Harry Reid is preparing to schedule a couple of weeks of immigration reform hearings, again trying to establish amnesty for illegal immigrants. The hook on this new intended reform is border reinforcement (bull!) and implementing tight employee verification requirements for employers unless of course they are big corporations that finance both the Democrats and Republicans.....meaning there will be no tightening and no border reinforcement.

Maybe Senator Reid didn't get the message last year when American's rebelled en-mass against several attempts to pass amnesty to people that broke our laws, and who drained the federal treasury (our tax dollars at work) of more than $240 billion as several states faced massive deficits from the overload on social benefits including education and healthcare. This while these same people sent $45 billion back to Mexico alone in "remittances".

Speaker Pelosi it is claimed is coming out with her version of the new amnesty plan early this summer. Apparently Pelosi and Reid both have a hearing or comprehension problem, if not both. It is obvious neither understands that the majority of legal American citizens will not support amnesty in any form regardless of how they package it. No doubt, amnesty will be attached to some non-related emergency bill and rammed down our throats.

Reid and Pelosi need to go. Along with them the Attorney General, one in a long line of AG's that has refused to perform his duty as require in the US Code.

Title 8 U.S.C. 1103 (a)(5) states: "The Attorney General shall have the power and the duty to control and guard the boundaries and borders of States against the illegal entry of aliens."

This one section alone should be enough to have Mukasey removed from office for dereliction of duty. And by the way.....where's that fence? If not the fence, at least call the Canadian Military down here to patrol that border for us. After all, Reid and Pelosi along with everyone else in our representative congress never said a word about this anti-American agreement called the Civil Assistance Plan that allows foreign military's to be used on our soil..... against us. The least they could do is have them secure that border and stop the flow of mass illegal immigration before they turn them on us.

Contrary to what we hear daily, our immigration system is NOT simply isn't enforced. We have a very liberal immigration policy, admitting an estimated 2 million new immigrants each year. This in addition to all the work, education and shopping visas. Yes, Virginia! You can get a shopping visa to enter the US from Mexico. Go figure! And here I thought these people were so poor! How could they come here to shop if they are? With what?

I also find it hard to believe that these illegal entrants into our country cannot make a decent living in Mexico, where wages are less, but so is the cost of living. Yet they can somehow raise $1500 (American) or more per person to get smuggled into the country. Where did that money come from if they are so destitute?
