The 66 Senators Who Voted for Amnesty

This week, the Senate voted on many amendments, but the most important vote was the Vitter Amendment, which attempted to removed the amnesty/legalization provisions of the bill. Sixty six Senators went this dangerous and radical route to give citizenship to 10-20+ million illegal immigrants.

Amnesty or legalization:

* harms the unskilled workers and people at the bottom in america TODAY
* adds burdens to taxpayers who will have to pay $50 billion or more a year in added net costs to the Government
* makes addressing illegal immigration harder, not easier, and burdens future Americans who will suffer from more floods of illegal immigrants
* is unfair to the legal immigrants who waited in line, sometimes 20 years, only to see that the illegal immigrants have a cheaper, faster, easier path to citizenship than they have.

Legal immigrants are required to abstain from violating our laws to become naturalized citizens.
Illegal immigrants are violating numerous laws to become naturalized citizens.

Where is the "equal application of the law?"

The Senators in bold are the Senators who have lost sight of the fact that the people are the ones who elected them to represent them. 80% of the people let them know where they stand. I am betting that 80% of the people are going to let them know where the Senators can stand in '06' and '08'.

I want elected representatives not elected renegades who think that the people are too stupid to know what they want or whats good for the country.
