Boy, the Establishment really wants amnesty and guest workers, but they sure don't want you to know they do. From the NYT:


Bipartisan Effort to Draft Immigration Bill

By RACHEL L. SWARNS WASHINGTON, Dec. 25 — Counting on the support of the new Democratic majority in Congress, Democratic lawmakers and their Republican allies are working on measures that could place millions of illegal immigrants on a more direct path to citizenship than would a bill that the Senate passed in the spring.

The lawmakers are considering abandoning a requirement in the Senate bill that would compel several million illegal immigrants to leave the United States before becoming eligible to apply for citizenship.

The lawmakers are also considering denying financing for 700 miles of fencing along the border with Mexico, a law championed by Republicans that passed with significant Democratic support. Details of the bill, which would be introduced early next year, are being drafted. The lawmakers, who hope for bipartisan support, will almost certainly face pressure to compromise on the issues from some Republicans and conservative Democrats.

Still, the proposals reflect significant shifts since the November elections, as well as critical support from the Homeland Security Department. Proponents said the prospects for such a measure, which would include tougher border security and a guest worker plan, had markedly improved since Nov. 7. The Senate plans to introduce its immigration bill next month with an eye toward passage in March or April, officials said. The House is expected to consider its version later. President Bush said last week that he hoped to sign an immigration bill next year.

The major lawmakers drafting the legislation include Senators Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, and John McCain, Republican of Arizona, along with Representatives Jeff Flake, Republican of Arizona, and Luis V. Gutierrez, Democrat of Illinois. The four met this month, and their staffs have begun working on a bill. “I’m very hopeful about this, both in terms of the substance and the politics of it,” said Mr. Kennedy, the incoming chairman of the Senate Immigration, Border Security and Citizenship Subcommittee.

The last business day before Christmas isn't a bad day to bury news either. The rape charges in the duke rape case were dropped.

Steve,

I just saw the *introduction* to the NBC nightly news. The lead story is the proposed "debate dividing the country" on immigration.

Its assumptions in the introductory footage were so biased, I turned off the TV. The snippets include a man who assures us that "Americans wont do these building jobs" etc. I have never seen the elite push for something so hard, all the while refusing to wait for a vote on it.

Im like Pat Buchanan on this issue, lets have a vote. If "the people" knew where Bush stood on it, he'd have never won the primary, no matter how much corporate/neo-con money he was given. We need to wait until the next election before passing anything and enforce the law in the meantime. Im happy to conceed when I lose, but on this issue, Ive not been given a chance to even vote. Its absolutely amazing.

I'd love to see what a Jim Webb could do against a McCain in a national election where one candidate promises to enforce the law and build a wall vs. one who wants to up the amount of legal immigration by 46 million over 20 years and build no wall. I have a feeling a Webb would CREAM McCain.


I think this is why the elite is pushing so hard to screw the republic over NOW NOW NOW. They are terrified of "the people" actually getting to vote against this.



One more note..........to any of you Massachusettians (if that the proper term) out there....when you wonder why the country tends not to like your state, its because you keep electing Ted Kennedy. That man is absolutely despised by most Americans (including me). He has tirelessly looked for ways to invent more democrats over the decades and push for pretty much everything that is anti-American, anti-patriotic, anti-God,Momma, and the Flag imaginable. Massachusetts could do wonders for her esteem amongst other states if they would vote his royal highness out in the next election.

The Congress (both Demopublicans and Republicrats) and Bush are bought and paid for by transnational corporations that want a "North American Union." They want to blend white people out of existence, dissolve the sovereign United States, and create Brazil North: a mass of various lower-IQ mongrels working for a dollar an hour for an elite sliver of overlords. Black people under this regime would go extinct to the extent that they couldn't continue to contribute to bread-and-circuses entertainment.

The politicians I mentioned are traitors to America, and I mean traitors in the literal, vigorous sense. This government is a mortal enemy of the nation and the people.

I don't know. A lot of the people who don't mind Massachusetts despise Texas for spawning Bush. The sides are mirror images of each other sometimes. I think MA and TX just happened to be associated with the candidates in a highly contested election.

I do find the immigration debate amusing in a sick way: the elites of both parties support it (for wildly different reasons which will eventually conflict) and are conspiring to keep the masses of both parties who oppose it from doing anything about it. I think they're going to succeed, in large part because the left-wing fear of racism prevents any sort of hookup with the Old Right.

If only Ross Perot hadn't turned out to be such a nutjob...
