JUST SAY NO! ALIEN AMNESTY BILL BUSTED WITH FILIBUSTER
Republicans hear American people; promise to eliminate amnesty provisions found in border security legislation
REPUBLICANS FILIBUSTERED THE AMNESTY bill for illegal aliens, blocking a vote on the measure concocted in secret by President Bush, Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and other alleged “leaders,” bringing action to a
standstill. But the immigrants-first crowd plans to bring it back, so the fight goes on. Bush, on his first day back from a European G-8 junket, made a rare visit to the Capitol on June 12 to pressure Republicans to embrace amnesty. They stood firm with a strong “no.”
Americans have a right to celebrate this initial victory while remaining vigilant. It was an angry outpouring of protests by loyal Americans that helped support Republican lawmakers in defiance of their own president. They fought to eliminate all amnesty measures from the “compromise” bill, leaving only those portions intended to secure the borders. But no law is better than bad law, and that’s where we stand.
