Can We PLEASE Kick McCain Out of the Senate Now?
Check this out:
Sen. John McCain gave a big thumbs up last night to demonstrators planning to march across the Brooklyn Bridge today in support of comprehensive immigration reform.A big thumbs up? Of course he did! McCain LOVES illegal immigrants. Or, to be more accurate, he'd LOVE their votes come '08 if he could get 'em citizenship by then.
But wait, there's more...
"If such demonstrations continue, I think we will have a bill for the President to sign soon," the Arizona Republican declared at an Irish and American flag-studded town hall meeting in the Bronx sponsored by the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform.Whoa! Did I just read that right? If my eyes don't deceive me, I believe that a U.S. senator, inexplicably elected by the people of Arizona, is inciting people who are in the country ILLEGALLY to take to the streets to influence the decisions of our supposedly representative government.
"The more debate, the more demonstrations, the more likely we will prevail," he told more than 3,000 cheering supporters - many clad in green-and-white shirts - who packed the St. Barnabas High School auditorium in Wakefield.
Note to Senator McCain: these people are not only not citizens of this country, they have broken our laws to come, stay and work here. THEY DON'T GET A SAY. But you seem determined to give them a back-door say and, frankly, I think your ass should be kicked out of the Senate for it.
The Irish group supports a bill proposed by McCain and Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) that would allow law-abiding undocumented immigrants already in the U.S. to stay and work toward citizenship.Law-abiding? I guess that means law-abiding except for breaking the law to get here, breaking the law to live here, and breaking the law to work here. But, other than that...
"This is a huge movement and the last hope for 11 million of us," said Pamela, 25, who came here three years ago with her daughter as a tourist and never left. Her daughter also is considered undocumented.Aaaaawwww. "Her daughter also is considered undocumented." I wouldn't call either of you undocumented, Pamela. I'd call you ILLEGAL ALIENS. But, hey, I'm just straight-forward like that. I find it appalling that a mother would put her child in this situation. I can certainly understand wanting a better life and the opportunity that is available here, but it's supposed to be available to citizens and those who immigrate here legally.
Here's some more frankness for you: if you came here only for the opportunities and benefits that this country has to offer, without a willingness, desire and, yes, eagerness to contribute to America (hint: a great start would be respecting our laws), then I don't want you here anyway.
