The U.S. Senate - Selling Us Out Again!
They are about to do it again. The U.S. Senate has formulated an Immigration bill that threatens you, your children and this country’s future.
A well-researched study by The Heritage Foundation (www.heritage.org) states that the Senate’s bill would allow an estimated 66 million persons to legally immigrate to the U.S. over the next 20 years. That’s one third of our country’s present population! That’s three times as many as are allowed by existing law.
Combined with that, this bill will put 8 to 10 million illegal immigrants on the path to citizenship. But the kicker is that once these former ‘illegals’ become citizens, they have the right by law to bring their parents to live in the U.S.
That may not be a problem if our economy is continued strong. The problem is that fully one half of all illegal immigrants have less than a high school education. They also have a higher level of out-of-wedlock children. That alone will assault our already over-burdened welfare and healthcare systems. And how about welfare and healthcare for grandma and grandpa?
And here’s the final straw—
The Senate voted into that same bill a provision to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on their past illegal employment! You read it right. Illegal aliens will be allowed to collect Social Security benefits even though they obtained their already illegal employment through forged or stolen documents!
How many years have we been hearing about the ‘Crisis in Social Security’? Many of us have been told that there won’t be anything left for us by the time we retire. And now the Senate wants to burden the system further by allowing 10 million illegals to collect on a system in which they’ve been participating fraudulently? A system that we’ve been told is going bankrupt anyway?
Who is writing this legislation? The President of Mexico?
Foreign influences may be only part of it. Some believe that the Democrats are pushing this legislation with the backing of certain labor unions. Their combined goal is to build a political and membership base that has been declining for some years. Others feel that it is the Republicans with the backing of ‘Big Business’ who are pushing this legislation. Their objective is providing corporate America an increasing flow of low cost workers.
Most likely both have some truth. Politics makes strange bedfellows indeed.
So what can we do?
The House of Representatives seems to be our last hope. Many in the House are against what the Senate is trying to do. Many are strong proponents of sealing the border. No legislation can become law if the House and the Senate do not agree. They call that compromise legislation.
I don’t think there should be any compromise on the Senate bill. It should be defeated by the House, torn up, and then burned.
I’m going to e-mail my Congressman and tell him to fight against the Senate bill.
If you feel the same way I do, and want to let others know about this dangerous legislation, feel free to alert your family and friends to this blog (http://middleclasswarrior.blogspot.com/ ).
The future of our country is at stake. We might be the only ones who can do anything about it.
