There are 62 traitors in the Senate. Sixty-two Senators voted in favor of S. 2611 which will grant amnesty and extend the guest worker program, cost American taxpayers millions, forever alter this country, and bends to the will and whim of the Mexican government. This is the most disastrous and incomprehensible legislation to come out of the Congress in a lifetime.

Oh, and here is one more thing. In this bill passed by the Senate, the U.S. has to consult with Mexico before they can build any additional security fences.


This was a last minute addition by Sen. Specter (R-PA).

This is not a Republican vs. Democrat issue, this is about right and wrong, and there are 62 Senators who are WRONG.

this is a knee jerk reaction but i think that politicians and voters should all have to take iq tests. you have to have a certain iq to run for office and you definitely should have a certain iq to vote. it seems that the stupids have taken over america.

I heard a sound bite from Bill Frist saying that the Senate had done a good job of getting a bill that reflected the "Senate's" will. Imagine the arrogance of that guy,
Mr. Frist obviously is not looking at every poll in the country that is screaming for more action than they have to spine to deliver...

not to mention that he has alot of nerve having anything to say about anyone or anything with the whiff of scandal at his door too. he is so far removed from the will of the people that for a moment i thought he was bush or santorum.

Hey, there were 36 Senators who did what was right, and I am trying to get the list as we speak. I know that here in Virginia, Allen voted against so I will continue to support him but Warner voted in favor, and I will not vote for him should he ever run for anything else even if it head of the local neighborhood watch or local school board.

Salazar (D-CO) and Rockefeller (D-WV) both did not vote.

Spineless wonders control the U.S. Senate!

Here's the list of yeas, nays and not voting:

Interesting that both Alaska's Senators both went yea. Also same Brownback of Kansas.

It's pretty obvious that there is a great deal of influence by businesses that want cheap labor. But at what price to the rest of us?

The hope now is that the House of Representatives will through cold water all over this.

Members of the House are all up for re-election and are running scared, so keep up the pressure.

If you haven't written your Congressperson do so immediately.

As someone who has worked in House and Senate offices, I can tell you that letters (faxes ok) get much more attention in the members tallies of constituent opinion than phone calls or email.

My own letter to Senator Graham:

got a rather lengthy response, which I also posted.

But I have yet to hear one of those who supports this legislation tell me what will happen if we discover several years from now that the illegals are NOT learning English, or paying the fines or back taxes.

What then?

Mike, I hope you come back, because I would really like to know more about what has more “weight.” I emailed all 100 Senators again yesterday about my disgust over S. 2611, but would it have been better to have called or faxed?
If faxes are better and you are against illegal immigration, may I suggest to you. They will send faxes for free to your Congressmen and Senators even if you don’t have a fax machine and they offer editable templates to use to make it easier on you.

This is a great blog, Publius, and I wish I'd found it sooner (thanks, AOW!).

"Traitors" doesn't stop with the legislators voting "yea"; take a look at this, and tell me what you think:

Presidential Oath of Office:

"I (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and I will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

The Constitution of the United States, Article IV, Section 4:

"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form ofGovernment, and shall protect each of them against Invasion...

I guess he 1) forgot, or 2) didn't know it was part of the job description, or 3) as he swore by his God, he was keeping his fingers crossed.

That’s tough. I have been questioning my choice of words on “traitor” since I wrote it. I don’t know if we can classify the illegals as an invasion. But, when I see them protest carrying and waving flags from another country and demanding our government change our laws, then I think maybe I did use the correct choice of words.
