Stop the ObamaCare Approach to Immigration!
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham told a reporter with the Associated Press that he wanted an amnesty bill fast-tracked through the Senate, because he knows the American people oppose it. Graham told the reporter, “You don’t want to leave it hanging out for two weeks to get shot up.”
Yesterday, we learned that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Pat Leahy declared that he absolutely intends to rush through an amnesty bill. Leahy’s letter came in response to Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions’ letter, urging Leahy to conduct open and transparent reform proceedings and to allow proper time for hearings and debate.
Leahy responded to Sessions’ letter with a long, rambling tantrum declaring his support for comprehensive immigration reform, stating that any effort to slow the process would be labeled “obstructionism,” and indicating that the Senate has held enough hearings on the issue and if any of the more junior Senators are having difficulty getting up to speed on the issue, they should talk to him.
Leahy also cited the recent “GOP autopsy,” which is the subject of Phyllis’ column this week, in his intemperate response to Sessions, declaring his encouragement that the RNC has stated in the recent “autopsy” that Republicans must embrace Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
The grassroots are hearing one insult after another from both sides of the aisle. Now more than ever, we must make our voices heard!
Please, tell your friends and neighbors and be sure your Senators are hearing from their colleagues that we will not accept a rushed-through amnesty bill!
