This Amnesty Bill needs to die a permanent death!

Gingrey releases statement on immigration bill

06/27/07
From the office of Phil Gingrey

U.S. Congressman Phil Gingrey released a statement today about a Republican resolution opposing the Senate immigration bill.

The House Republican Conference passed a resolution in firm opposition to the Senate immigration bill by a vote of 114 to 23.

"As the Senate continues debating their misguided immigration bill, House Republicans have made it clear that we will not waiver from our principles of reform," Gingrey said. "Any legislation we enact must uphold the rule of law, secure our borders and benefit the American people and economy. The Senate bill simply does not pass the test. After examining the legislation and its 24 likely amendments, I can not foresee a responsible piece of legislation emerging which I could support."

The statement continued:

"Immigration reform is a top priority for this Congress, but the only thing worse than inaction would be taking hasty action that does not truly address the problems of our current system. In 1986, Congress passed a terrible amnesty bill that was hailed as the solution to our illegal immigration problem. It only takes a quick glance around Georgia to realize the '86 bill was a complete failure. The Senate should heed the lessons of that mistake; sadly, their current bill replicates it instead."

God bless Phil Gingrey and the House of Representatives. We should vote into the Senate many of the House members who truly wish to represent the American people. The Senate has become a disfunctional body that doesn't represent the people. Start by removing Specter,who has been in there way too long,and Casey,who figured out how to side with his party and against the wishes of his constituents way too soon. People like this are killing this democracy, if you can even call it that any more.

It is dead. Bush will try again, but it is dead twice.

Now, if only Bush would read his oath of office and enforce the existing border laws.
