Final Score On The Illegal Immigration Bill In The Senate: Mexico 62 — America 36

The Senate has voted 62 to 36, to pass an amnesty bill that rewards illegals, doesn’t secure the borders, and that may lead, over the next twenty years, to America being flooded with somewhere between 60-95 million uneducated workers (depending on whose numbers you believe). This bill won’t stop the flow of illegals, it’ll cause the deficit to balloon, and in my opinion, no Senator who voted for it can sincerely say that they were looking out for the best interests of the American people when they did so.

Despite the fact that this may very well be the worst piece of legislation to make it through the Senate in the last 30 years, President Bush supports it wholeheartedly and the following Republican Senators voted for it:

Bennett (R-UT)
Brownback (R-KS)
Chafee (R-RI)
Coleman (R-MN)
Collins (R-ME)
Craig (R-ID)
DeWine (R-OH)
Domenici (R-NM)
Frist (R-TN)
Graham (R-SC)
Gregg (R-NH)
Hagel (R-NE)
Lugar (R-IN)
Martinez (R-FL)
McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Smith (R-OR)
Snowe (R-ME)
Specter (R-PA)
Stevens (R-AK)
Voinovich (R-OH)
Warner (R-VA)

As far as I’m concerned, if the Senators who voted for this bill want a kind word on Right Wing News between now and November, they can buy an ad.

Now the ball in is the House’s court and we have every indication that they intend to stand strong in committee. Let’s hope so, because they’re America’s last line of defense against this nightmare of a bill and there will be hell to pay if they don’t get the job done.

Hat tip to John W. Lillpop, because I loved a line in his email so much that I “Bogarted” it from him, added a bit to it, and used it for the title of the post.
