Taking It To The Streets

Cross Posted From Common Sense America 

In what has been called the Illegal Immigration Road Show, the House of Representatives is bringing more weight to bear on our elected officials by ‘outing’ their proposed amnesty bill across this nation.

Actually, I think this is a brilliant move by the House to hold hearings to expose the idiocy, AKA S-2611, and take the debate to the American people. Surely nothing good can come of this if you are one of the Senators that backed this ridiculous piece of legislation.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

A House hearing called “Should We Embrace the Senate’s Grant of Amnesty to Millions of Illegal Aliens and Repeat the Mistakes of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986?” produced vivid warnings Tuesday about the Senate’s version of a comprehensive immigration bill.

Republicans on the House immigration subcommittee showed no hesitation in slamming the Bush administration and their Senate colleagues for departing from the House’s enforcement-only approach. Even Democrats complained that the hearings — part of a summer-long series — had the country “up in arms about the fact that there’s an amnesty bill out there,” said Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Los Angeles.

And rightly so, Ms. Waters.

The article goes on to quote another House Representative:

Rep. Howard Berman, D-North Hollywood (Los Angeles County), said Republicans were vying to “see how many times they can use the word amnesty in one sentence,” while doing nothing to work out their differences with the Senate.

Good. It’s about time. After hearing our elected officials proclaim repeatedly that this legislation garbage is NOT amnesty, it’s nice to see there are still people, in office, who will speak the truth to the American people.
