DON'T YOU LOVE THE VIEW FROM UNDER THE BUS
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
Excuse me while I wipe off the oil drippings from my face so I can write. That is precisely how you and I are being treated with this bogus immigration bill. Congress keeps stashing our bodies under the bus unless you are of course a special class of people, illegal aliens! You are special then!!!
All we seem to hear from our President and other supporters on Capital shrill is talk about how this bill will resume "rule of law", "finally establish border security" and "make illegals pay for breaking the law by paying a fine". Provisions are lining up and going back and forth in congress but this bill thinks it is Lazarus and Groundhog Day, resurrecting from the dead and returning again and again and again!
Just a few of the ever so tough provisions in this bill that keep stashing our citizens under the bus include the following. These were covered on the Lou Dobbs show thankfully.
Legal Status after 24 hours. Even if the background checks aren't completed they STILL GET LEGAL STATUS. Wow! I feel safer all ready.
One of my other favorites is that they are offering amnesty to gang members. The Heritage Foundation estimates there are only about 30,000 of these in 33 states. I want you to know that our congress wouldn't dream of just giving amnesty for no reason to criminals. Drum roll…..here is the test. They have to say they won't be a gang member anymore. They have to be sorry. Isn't that precious? (Do our death row inmates get the same opportunity to be free by saying they won't be a criminal ever again?)
One of my other favorites is the tuition for illegal aliens. Remember The Dream Act? This bill incorporates this act and gives in-state tuition to illegal aliens. Of course your children can eats rocks and die if they are a U.S. citizen. Who cares if they have good grades, there is a cool college in the next state over and they want to go there but can't afford out of state tuition. Please refer your child to the Nightmare Act. They qualify for those benefits.
Of course I adore the fact that we tax payers will be paying for all the immigration attorneys representing all the illegals. What do you care? You are filthy rich like I am!!! Go back under the bus will you?
There is so much grease and oil in my eyes and face from all the drippings of the bus, but I will try and finish this article. Another favorite provision is that illegals will be able to cut in front of those who have been waiting for years to come into our country legally. This one is a no brainer! Of course you penalize immigrants who observe the law and follow the rules. What am I thinking?
The final provision I will cover in this article is regarding taxes. Under this legislation illegals won't have to pay any back taxes. Not only that but illegals would be eligible for earned income tax credit. This used to be reserved for citizens, but what do we care. We are trying to stay alive while being drug along by the bus.
This is a critical time in America and we must fight for REAL border
security, REAL rule of law, REAL compassion and common sense. Call
your congressperson. They work for us!
