- This is beyond an outrage. I hope people call talk radio
this weekend and next week and really bring down the house on this one.
- Much of this bill that hasn't even been read by these
craven so and so's in DC was written by staffers during the night - reported
on one of the cable networks last night.
- Take it to church. To the VFW Hall.
- To the State Houses and tell them if they would just
standup to Washington, DC by challenging the 17th Amendment and get decent,
real U.S. Senators to DC., we could stop this in the future or we will
have no future and neither will their children.
- The States of the Union have NO representation in Congress
because of the fraudulent 17th Amendment, but militant an America hating
organization Hell bent on sedition sits in on negotiations to stop this
invasion? These people in Washington, DC have gone literally insane.
- The first round of voting by these counterfeit Senators
is Monday afternoon. Worst counterfeit senators who support this amnesty
- Sen. John McCain R-AZ
- Sen. Lindsey Graham R-SC
- Sen. Jon Kyl R-AZ
- Sen. Arlen Specter R-PA
- Sen. Mel Martinez R-FL
- Rep. Jeff Flake, R-AZ
- Constituent in those states need to get your phone trees
up and running Monday morning.
- Thank you.

- 'La Raza' Has Virtual Veto Over Bill
- Controversial group 'practically in the room'
- © 2007 WorldNetDaily.com
- Controversial Latino groups, including the National Council
of La Raza, were granted virtual veto power over the immigration bill
hammered out yesterday by Senate Republicans, Democrats and the White
House, the Washington Post reported.
- A number of prominent Republicans have rejected the bill
which still has not been issued in its final form as "amnesty"
for millions of people who came to the U.S. illegally.
- The National Council of La Raza, or "The Race,"
was condemned last year by Rep. Charles Norwood, R-Ga., as a radical "pro-illegal
immigration lobbying organization that supports racist groups calling
for the secession of the western United States as a Hispanic-only homeland."
- Norwood, writing in Human Events, called on La Raza to
renounce its support of the campus group MEChA Movimiento Estudiantil
Chicano de Aztlan which sees "The Race" as part of a transnational
ethnic group that one day will reclaim Aztlan, the mythical birthplace
of the Aztecs. In Chicano folklore, Aztlan includes California, Arizona,
Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas.
- As WND reported, Norwood said last year the National
Council of La Raza campaigned hard against a plan to provide funding,
training and resources for state and local law enforcement agencies who
help federal officers in capturing and detaining criminals who are illegal
- "For those who haven't figured it out yet, the entire
illegal immigration crisis we suffer is due 100 percent from failure to
enforce existing law," Norwood said. "The other side (including
La Raza) knows this very well, and knows that the continued suppression
of U.S. law enforcement efforts is essential to permanently destroying
- Regarding the new bill, Eric Gutierrez, lead lobbyist
for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, or MALDEF,
told the Post there's "a real sense that the Latino community is
key to the solution in this debate, so now they are reaching out to us
more than ever."
- "Neither party wants to make a misstep politically,"
- The Post said the Latino groups "were practically
in the room" as Democratic and Republican senators negotiated the
bill, which would grant quick legal status to millions of illegal immigrants,
create a temporary worker program and increase border security.
- Before criticism came rolling in, Sen. Arlen Specter,
R-Pa., insisted the bill is not "amnesty," but lawmakers such
as Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., immediately
applied that label.
- King called it "a pardon and reward for lawbreakers,"
and DeMint declared, "I don't care how you try to spin it, this is
- Last year, Latino groups demonstrated their power by
filling streets in cities across the nation when the House passed a bill
that would have made illegal immigration a felony.
- The Post noted La Raza, MALDEF, the League of United
Latin American Citizens, or LULAC, and the National Immigration Forum
are part of a broad network of immigrant rights groups that have been
speaking daily with top aides in the offices of Democratic Sens. Ted Kennedy
and Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader.
- The bill promoted by Kennedy would allow illegal immigrants
to come forward and obtain a "Z visa" that puts them on a track
for permanent residency within eight to 13 years. Fees and a fine of
$5,000 are required and heads of household first must return to their
- The illegals would be able to obtain a probationary card
right away to live and work in the U.S., but the path to citizenship cannot
begin until completion of border improvements and the high-tech ID system.
- The temporary worker program also would be delayed until
the new security measures are in place. The workers would be required
to return home after two years and would not be on a track for permanent
status. The guest worker visas could be renewed twice, but the worker
would be required to leave for one year between each renewal.
- Democrats wanted guest workers to be allowed to stay
- Two tough issues remain for which Kennedy's Latino "stakeholders"
likely will have sway. Republicans and Democrats still are divided on
whether 400,000 foreigners entering the country as temporary workers would
have to leave the country after three years or be granted a chance to
remain permanently, the Post reported. Also, the parties must resolve
how extended family ties should be weighed in granting visas.
- William Ramos, a spokesman for the National Association
of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, told the Post his constituency
would oppose elimination of "some aspects of family reunification"
and also a policy that would force immigrants to return to their home
countries for an extended period and to petition for reentry.
- The White House held a meeting just over two weeks ago
with Latino groups, and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and
Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez have had contact.
- "At least they are paying attention to us,"
MALDEF President John Trasviña told the Post.

reclaiming the American Southwest
