DREAM Act Blocked

I don't know if it was because enough citizens called Washington or if senators are coming to their senses, but the DREAM Act was blocked yesterday when cloture failed.

"A lot of senators concluded that from the last vote: Citizenship is not on the table anymore," said Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, who led the opposition to the Dream Act and who said the failure earlier this year of President Bush's broad legalization bill has fundamentally moved the debate toward the right.

Dick Durbin is still whining about what he calls "bigotry and hatred," and said it took courage for the senators who voted yes along with him.

Courage is one of those words that's lost its meaning in today's society.

Apparently John McCain didn't vote, although he voted on a couple of other measures yesterday. I chalk that up to his not wanting to vote against his convictions (we all know where he stands on illegal aliens), but knew if he did, what's left of his campaign would look like Southern California right now.

Note to the Senate (especially Dick Durbin): Those of us who want our country's laws upheld and who want illegal aliens to go home (wherever that may be) are not bigots, racists and haters. Calling us that may make you think you look like the bigger person, but you're really just revealing your own prejudices. I don't care so much where an immigrant comes from, so long as he is here legally and wants to be a part of America. Handing out amnesty like Halloween candy is not going to solve the problem, but will encourage others to come and likewise break the law, expecting to be rewarded like those before them.

Fred Thompson had a radical proposal the other day: no amnesty, enforce existing laws, end sanctuary city status, and increase border security. It's so crazy, it just might work!

I was reading the same Fred Thompson article the other day. I noticed one thing missing from his list of ideas to stop illegal immigration: employer sanctions/penalties.

We all know this is why we have so many illegals crossing our borders--jobs--and we all know how to nip it in the bud. I wonder if the subject just slipped his mind, or did he not mention it on purpose...
