Double Speak From Our Leaders

I keep hearing the words “comprehensive immigration reform bill” like this is something even remotely possible. The name in itself is misleading when you think about the fact that it mostly deals with illegal aliens who should be facing charges of trespassing at minimum. The word immigration suggests an orderly flow, like our government has knowledge of who these people are.

The only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. The word comprehensive gives me a picture of someone attempting to swallow an elephant in one bite. This is a huge issue. We are hearing numbers being tossed around from 12 million to 40 million people. This is an elephant sized problem that needs to be dealt with one issue at a time. Even the greatest journey begins with a single step. This doesn’t seem to meet the criteria of how Washington wants to deal with this problem. They want to stuff the whole ball down the cannon and fire. Looking at the current bill on the table (S-1348) we can see the mess and destruction that will befall our nation if this bill is launched.

The word reform suggests that we need to alter something that doesn’t work. The facts tell us that we don’t use what we have. Instead of actually putting the laws on the books to work, we are choosing to completely alter them to hide our failure to act. This failure has cost us lives folks. People are being killed and harmed by many of the illegal aliens (or read – foreign invaders) that our government has failed to secure us from. The number one job of government is the security of its people. Before any other program can be placed on the table our leaders need to see to the security of this nation. Our current leadership has failed us.

We need to stand up and be heard. Now is the time to write/fax/email/call your representatives both federal and state and let them know how you feel about this issue. Tell them they need to take care of job one first and then we can discuss the rest of the mess. Let them know that we will not let them hold our security hostage. There are a few groups looking to find alternative candidates for anyone who votes for the amnesty plan currently being offered. It may be our last chance.

What really troubles me aside from it's a terrible bill is how it was constructed, behind closed doors, in secret & without public input. The amazing thing is that it was done in Washington and in secret. The only way this could have happened is if all the loose lips were in on it. It has to be a really bad bill if the people in control of both parties have to spring it on the public and try to ram it down our throats.
