Democrats face hurdles in passing immigration bill

By SUZANNE GAMBOA
Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Democrats may have support from President Bush on immigration, but they face other obstacles in getting a bill through Congress.

The Democrats lack enough votes within their party and must overcome lingering Republican disdain for what some consider "amnesty" for some people in the U.S. illegally, as well as union opposition.

The difficulty of their predicament is showing.

The bill's Senate sponsors couldn't agree and gave up their alliance on joint legislation, while its House sponsors introduced their own version, knowing its prospects are heavily dependent on Bush.

"We need to get a bill and he needs to start twisting a few arms," said the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Although Bush supported last year's Senate bill, he also signed a House Republican bill calling for a 700-mile fence on the U.S.-Mexican border. And he did little to persuade Republicans to negotiate an immigration bill.

Originally, Sens. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., and John McCain, R-Ariz., planned to introduce a sweeping immigration reform bill with their House partners, Reps. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. an Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.

McCain's enthusiasm withered as he faced a mounting challenge from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and conservatives on the presidential campaign trail unwilling to accept anything less than deportation of illegal immigrants.


The bill is HR1645.

Gutierrez's bill is 700 pages long and has just about every out in it you can think of. It would end up be absolutely non-enforceable and be meaningless.

He wants to allow 400,000 permenent guest workers into the country every year and to legalize the estimated 20 million illegals already here.

If it smells like amnesty for those who came here illegally and engage in all manner of identity and tax fraud, that is exactly what it is.

A good bill would take one sentence: Illegals will be immediately deported to their home country and identified as felons should they ever return.

All these MSM pieces make it seem like there are opposing forces who take opposite sides in this issue.

These are elists, all of them, and they are for having slaves and paying slave wages. They own the corporations to begin with.

Both are for amnesty, but you are totally correct, the people are against it and very pissed, at the moment.

Nobody is fighting amnesty, except for the ordinary American citizens.

Anyone that supports any form of amnesty is signing the death warrant for their career.
