Dissolve the Senate!

These jackasses just don't get it. Notice how many are Republicans. This update comes from FAIR.


GUEST WORKER AMNESTY UPDATE
Halls of Shame, Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Massive Guest Worker Amnesty Program Would Destroy American Dream for American Workers and Families
As you have undoubtedly heard, the Senate Judiciary Committee last evening approved an amnesty guest worker program modeled after the worst of all possible alternatives, the McCain-Kennedy legislation. Not to be outdone, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) successfully advanced an amendment to provide amnesty for some 1.5 million illegal alien agricultural workers.
Incredible as it may sound, the Judiciary Committee took this action even as the Government Accountability Office (GAO) was issuing a devastating report on border vulnerability to terrorism. The report revealed that its investigators had successfully smuggled enough nuclear material across both the Mexican and Canadian borders to assemble two "dirty bombs." Even more incredibly, the GAO investigators smuggled their cargo not in some remote unguarded sector of either border, but through regular "secure" border crossings.
What follows is a short synopsis of the highlights of the Judiciary Committee bill approved yesterday:
Citizenship for Sale and for Free
General Amnesty (Graham R-SC, Kennedy D-MA Amendment)
All 12 million currently resident illegal aliens would be permitted to apply for a work visa after paying back taxes and a $1000 penalty.
The visas would last for three years and be renewable for three more years.
After the forth year, these 12 million newly-minted legal aliens-their family members who will ultimately be permitted to join them pushing the numbers through the roof-would be permitted to apply for a green card setting them on a path for citizenship.
Approved 12-5.
Yesterday's Villains include Senators Arlen Specter (R-PA), Sam Brownback (R-KS), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Mike DeWine (R-OH) who joined all Democrats by voting for the most sweeping amnesty in American history.
Cowardly Lion Award goes to Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) who was conveniently out of the room and did not vote.
Agricultural Worker Amnesty (Feinstein D-CA Amendment)
All 1.5 million illegal alien agricultural worker would receive a new "blue card" that would allow them to remain in the United States as long as they work in agriculture for a small portion of two years.
Following this period all of these 1.5 million newly-minted legal aliens-their family members who will ultimately be permitted to join them will at minimum double the numbers-would be permitted to apply for a green card, placing them on a path toward citizenship.
Approved 11-5 on a roll call vote (votes by Senators not immediately available, but mirror those of the general amnesty vote above).
Guests Who Never Have to Leave (Kennedy D-MA Amendment)
Provides 400,000 new guest worker visas annually.
New guest workers given renewable 3 year terms of work authorization.
Following 6 years, the new "guests" may apply for green cards, placing them on a path toward citizenship if they can show that they are learning English and pass background checks.
Approved 11-6 by roll call vote (votes by Senators not immediately available but mirror those of the general amnesty vote above).
Want to Go to College? U.S. Citizens Go To The Back of The Line!
In-State Tuition for Illegal Aliens Anyone? (Durbin D-IL Amendment)
Repeals current law barring in-state tuition for illegal aliens unless the same benefit is made available to out of state residents.
This will effectively require middle and lower income Americans to directly compete with illegal aliens for limited freshman class seats at state colleges and universities.
Approved by voice vote.
Invitation to Overstay Visas
Decriminalize Visa Overstayers Anyone? (Durbin D-IL Amendment)
Makes overstay of a visa-40 percent of all illegal aliens are visa overstayers-a civil violation and removes all criminal penalties.
Approved 11-6 by roll call vote (votes by Senators not immediately available but mirror those of the general amnesty vote above).
Final Bill Approved by Committee Roll Call Vote of 12-6
Voted For Committee Approval: Arlen Specter (R-PA) DeWine (R-OH) Graham (R-SC) Brownback (R-KS)Leahy (D-VT) Kennedy (D-MA) Biden (D-DE)Kohl (D-WI)Feinstein (D-CA)Feingold (D-WI)Schumer (D-NY)Durbin (D-IL)
