This Congress has redefined illegal, Clinton redefined sex. Hilton and Libby get the same headline space. Fly-over America is told to shut up because they don't count. The wind is changing and it's not pretty.

ahead, we will work to improve the bill to protect and strengthen family ties
while improving the structure of the temporary-worker program."

THE ILLEGAL ALIEN AND THE COCKROACH HAVE A LOT IN COMMON:Comparing the behaviors of the illegal aliens to the cockroach is not in the least racist or name calling.
The facts speak for themselves as both are;
1.undesirable
2.hide in the shadows
3.help themselves to whatever they want
4.have no boundries
5.multiply without the means to provide
6.run and hide like the criminals they are
7.neither were invited into our homes
8.neither have anything to offer in return
9.neither are productive to their communities
10. both are a nuisance and burden to all regardless where they come from. They did not come legally and we are not responsible for their woes in life.

Illegals may have a personality disorder, but their big problem is their disregard for the rule of law and their stealing from Americans by acting like cockroaches and forcing their way into this country and taking everything that belongs to someone else. We are sick of it and we are sick of our leaders waving a white flag to this invasion. We the people are going to unload the illegals and the wimpy leaders. GOT IT?

CNN Lou Dobbs:

"TANCREDO'S CAMPAIGN IS GOING NOWHERE & HE IS LOGICALLY OUT OF THE RACE"

"I'm a constituent of Tom Tancredo's, sickened by his lack of integrity in violating his term limits pledge and his shameless attempts to stay in office and feather his nest through pandering and demagoguery. Tancredo has accomplished nothing of substance while in Congress; he has simply found a hot-button issue of no strong relevance to his district - illegal immigration - and is milking the publicity for all that it's worth."

Tancredo: "THE ALIENS ARE COMING, THE ALIENS ARE COMING, THIS IS THE END OF AMERICA, THIS IS THE END OF THE WORLD"

FED UP: Are the aliens here yet? Are they green? Ohhh No!, They're brown!!!!

Why are you endorsing this looser? Even your dear Lou says “He’s logically out of the race”

ALL PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES, BOTH REPUBLICANS & DEMOCRATS ARE PRO "AMNESTY" "LEGALIZATION" "PATH TO REGULARIZATION" “TEMPORARY VISA”or whatever you want to call it.

*Except Looser tancredo.

Don’t be fooled, just because they say they are against this bill!

GIULIANNI, who says the bill is just another "typical Washington Mess" is for "A PATH TO LEGALIZATION"

ROMNEY: The Flip Flopper, who once was “PRO AMNESTY”, said on Tuesday, that he would give them “Temporary Visas”

“READ MY LIPS”…

+- 12 million “UNDOCUMENTED AMERICANS” will never be deported!

I loved the Undocumented Fertilizer Specialist = Senator! By the way, Mr. Dalton was commenting on Harry Reid's absurd comment that illegal aliens were undocumented Americans. Even illegal aliens know that they are not American citizens. Reid was pandering and that is horrendous!

Thought you might like to know:
"The procedure for "invoking cloture," or ending a filibuster, is as follows:
A minimum of sixteen senators must sign a petition for cloture.
The petition may be presented by interrupting another Senator's speech.
The clerk reads the petition.
The cloture petition is ignored for one full day during which the Senate is sitting (If the petition is filed on a Friday, it is ignored until Tuesday, assuming that the Senate did not sit on Saturday or Sunday.)
On the second calendar day during which the Senate sits after the presentation of the petition, after the Senate has been sitting for one hour, a "quorum call" is undertaken to ensure that a majority of the Senators are present.
The President of the Senate or President pro tempore presents the petition.
The Senate votes on the petition; three-fifths of the whole number of Senators (sixty with no vacancies) is the required majority; however, when cloture is invoked on a question of changing the rules of the Senate, two-thirds of the Senators voting (not necessarily two-thirds of all Senators) is the requisite majority.
After cloture has been invoked, the following restrictions apply:
No more than thirty hours of debate may occur.
No Senator may speak for more than one hour.
No amendments may be moved unless they were filed on the day in between the presentation of the petition and the actual cloture vote.
All amendments must be relevant to the debate.
Certain debates on procedure are not permissible.
The presiding officer gains additional power in controlling debate.
No other matters may be considered until the question upon which cloture was invoked is disposed of."
It ain't over 'til it's over.
Cloture lost 63-36 on S.1348.

People can make up stats for anything they want to prove. Come to South Georgia and show me 78% of REGISTERED VOTERS want all of these law breakers here as Citizens.. My family came over legally. I am the 3rd generation Immigrant and we did it legally. SEND THESE ILLEGALS PACKING AND QUIT MAKING UP STATS TO TRY AND PROVE SOMETHING THAT NON-ILLEGALS DON"T WANT

And we all know how honest Lou Dobbs is! The man lies repeatedly. Looking to him for accurate information is a lost cause.

Most American actually believe in compassion and human dignity, and understand that the vast majority of immigrants, legal or illegal, are coming to the U.S. for basic human reasons like getting jobs and taking care of their families. Thankfully, warm and reasonable people who believe in the constitution still make up the majority of this country.
