Hart-Celler Act hearings 1965 Quote:

Senate immigration subcommittee chairman Edward Kennedy (D-MA.) reassured his colleagues and the nation with the following:

"First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same ... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset ... Contrary to the charges in some quarters,[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia ... In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think."

Sen. Kennedy concluded by saying,

"The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1-3.)

Liar!!

Oh, gas was a $1.87 when President Bush left office.

What is it now with B.O. in his second term?

Yea, bush had crashed the economy before he left office. A few months before bush left office he had cranked gas prices to over $4.16 per gallon. Now, after 6 years of inflation, caused by bush printing trillions of dollars off the books, gas is $3.62. Yea, its down compared to bush, but still way too high. The oil companies own so much of the government they can still steal trillions, cause wars, pollute everything in sight, with no repercussions.

McCain has surpassed himself in being truly out of touch with what matters most to Americans. He cares more about hawking wars and pushing illegals on an already money-poor country. Who does he think is going to pay for his two pet projects? The war fairy, named Jose?

But Kerry says the Arabs are going to pony up the $$$. This region has been fighting for a very long time, sunnis against the shiites.

Graham is the one that will fail. He's the idiot who puts illegal aliens above Americans. He's the one who thought Kagan and Sotomayor were such great candidates for the SC. He's the one who wants to be a warmonger like McCain. He's a total buffoon.

It is not from ineptness; they are intentionally stealing everything they can, while we just let them take the fruit of our labor.

It is very difficult for many of them to admit that they chose poorly. The problem is we all pay for their poor choice.
