Posted on 03/28/2006 3:35:57 PM PST by rhema
10. Sen. Mike DeWine (R.-Ohio) Judiciary Committee member, voted for amnesty for agricultural workers and for spouses and children of illegals. Co-sponsored in-state tuition bill for illegals. Opposed increasing funding for Border Patrol and adding more ICE agents.
9. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D.-Vt.) Ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Worked with Sen. Specter on his amnesty-granting immigration bill and called building a fence along the United States border a cockamamie idea.
8. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D.-Ill.) Co-sponsor of the House version of McCain-Kennedy. Roll Call reported that after a live debate on CNBC with immigration hawk Rep. Tom Tancredo (R.-Colo.) Guirerrez asked, Have you ever eaten in a restaurant? mocked Tancredo by saying, How could you eat from the plates touched by those nasty illegal immigrants? and called Tancredo a racist and bigot.
7. Rep. Howard Berman (D.-Calif.) Accused Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R.-Wis.) of playing to the cheap seats with his bill to construct a border fence. Co-ponsored legislation to increase amnesties for spouses and children of illegals.
6. Rep. John Conyers (D.-Mich.) Co-sponsored legislation to grant amnesty to illegal aliens with a family member or employer willing to sponsor them. Will assume Judiciary chairmanship if Democrats win control of the House in November.
5. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) Consistently opposes any restrictions on immigration. Calls measures to criminalize illegal immigrants and those who assist them draconian and inhumane. Co-sponsored the SOLVE Act with Rep. Gutierrez to create a temporary guest-worker program.
4. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D.-N.Y.) Once said she was adamantly against illegal immigrants, now supports legalizing the 11 million illegals living in the U.S. Has vowed to block any bill criminalizing illegal immigration, suggested the House immigration bill would have made Jesus a criminal.
3. Sen. Arlen Specter (R.-Pa.) Judiciary Chairman, introduced a bill to convert illegal aliens into legal guest-workers for six years without first making them return to their home country and to allow more temporary workers and their families into the United States.
2. Sen. Teddy Kennedy (D.-Mass.) Cosponsoring legislation with McCain to grant amnesty to illegal aliens and has repeatedly supported amnesty efforts. Favors giving illegal students amnesty and a free college education.
1. Sen. John McCain (R.-Ariz.) Lead sponsor with Teddy Kennedy of a bill to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. Joined Hillary Clinton, Kennedy and Charles Schumer expressing gratitude to a group of illegal Irish aliens for their actions to lobby Congress for amnesty.
I had no idea Jesus was ever in the United States.
Oh, wait, she meant Haysoos! Oh, well, yeah, it would make him a criminal.
You need to add the name of the ringleader of the gang of 10 George W. Bush (a.k.a. Guest Worker Bush).
"4. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D.-N.Y.) Once said she was adamantly against illegal immigrants, now supports legalizing the 11 million illegals living in the U.S. Has vowed to block any bill criminalizing illegal immigration, suggested the House immigration bill would have made Jesus a criminal."
Making them voters is the only way she could ever win the White House.
You got that right.
I am suprised Raul Grijalva (RAT AZ) didn't make the list.
Hey Teddy so you don't want those wind generators blocking your pretty view up thar in Mass. What if gather up all the illegals and station them off the Mass. coast - they could ride stationary bikes to generate electric power... will that work?
"You aren't supposed to reveal that illegals hate the current bill/proposals as it isn't really amnesty and actually punishes and enforces immigration laws."
Well, that's remarkable because all the signs I saw specified the Sessenbrenner bill. Nice try though.
Sir/Madame, please get it right... its Dick Turdbin ;-)
Go look up the legal definition of Amnesty and then look at the bill..
Should include David Dryer (R California)
"Go look up the legal definition of Amnesty and then look at the bill."
"n., a general pardon for offenses against the government, etc. "
I read the bill. It's a general pardon. Perhaps you have it confused with the McCain proposed bill which had the illegals pay a token fine as a ruse to pretend it wasn't an amnesty.
Chris Cannon of Utah should be in the top ten, for sure.
