Amnesty Bill Defeated In Senate Vote

Thank goodness...

46-53, immigration bill goes down in defeat

The comprehensive immigration reform bill that has dodged attacks from the left and right for weeks, survived "poison pill" amendments, and was once pulled from the Senate schedule failed its most important test Thursday. Passage of the legislation now appears unlikely.

The bipartisan coalition that had shepherded the measure through so many obstacles failed to get the 60 votes necessary to end debate. The final vote was 46-53

Until Thursday morning, it was unclear whether the bill would survive the cloture vote. But in the end, opponents of the measure from both sides of the political spectrum gained enough support to derail the legislation. Liberals felt it did not go far enough in protecting illegal immigrants, while conservatives rejected the bill because they felt it would grant amnesty to the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the country.

Republican foes of the measure argued that the American public was broadly united in opposition to the bill and had made its views known by flooding Congress with phone calls and e-mails.

Power to the people!

http://www.captainsquartersblog.com/mt/archives/010376.php
Now What?
They need to address border security and visa-program problems immediately. Congress has left these problems simmering for over 21 years. Their failure to address the issue over two decades has demonstrated that Washington does not consider those issues a very high priority, and the Senate's insistence on tying them to normalization underscores that. Poll after poll shows that Americans don't believe Congress when it says it will do something -- and so Congress needs to demonstrate their competence first before we take a flyer on creating another vast bureaucratic nightmare.

Secure the borders. Fix the visa program. Do those tasks by using the proper legislative processes in both chambers, allowing for real debate, honest and open amendment opportunities, and quit using clay pigeons and other parliamentary tricks to hide the bill and railroad it through Congress.

In other words, act responsibly, instead of trying to pull a fast one on the American public.

Congratulations to the right-wing blogosphere. This is a big victory for you guys and talk radio.

It'll be interesting to see what the fallout is; particularly among Hispanic voter support for Republicans. Hopefully there will be some polling data on this.

It reminds me of Prop 187 here in California. Even though a majority of Latinos voted for it, in the years following the Republicans suffered heavy losses across the board in state elections. (Schwarzenegger has somewhat reversed that; but he can't be called a traditional Republican).

Easy-START ENFORCING THE LAW THAT IS ON THE BOOKS NOW.

If it was that easy it would have been done already. Does anyone remember the raid on a New Bedford, MA leather processing plant back in March? link That was a fiasco. Multiply that times 15,000 and that is what is what you get from enforcing the law that is on the books now. Kicking out millions of people is just not a logistical possibility. We need to find another way to fix the problem.

I read a piece today where ... (Below threshold)
Mac Lorry:

I read a piece today where a Florida sheriff found an innovative way of enforcing the immigration laws. Deputies just show up in force at a construction site as if they were going to raid it and then see who runs. The cops give chase and arrest them for laws they break in fleeing such as trespassing when some illegal runs across private property. The sheriff then investigates and turns in the names of suspected illegals. The technique has been so successful it has dried up the pool of illegals in the county. Here's the interesting point. Some construction company big shot claims they can't build anything without the labor of illegals, which is a stupid lie. There are lots of construction companies that don't use illegals in other parts of the nation. The same company big shot claims that the illegals are their best workers. No doubt because they work cheap and have no rights.

The problem starts and ends with employers. There are some farm related business that may not survive the absence of illegals, but I would rather pay more for oranges grown in South America than pay more taxes to care for and school illegals. As for service jobs, including construction, the idea that we need illegals is a lie. What do you think, some hotel is not going to clean their rooms if they can't get cheap labor, or some building isn't going to get built because they can't get cheap labor? Nonsense, these employers will have to pay market wages for such work. There are lots of high school dropouts that would be happy with a $12/hr. cleaning job or a $20/hr. construction job. They won't do these jobs for minimum wage like illegals do, and they shouldn't have to.

The answer is to privatize enforcement as I have laid out many times before. The plan would allow illegals to turn-in other illegals and get a reward, all paid for by the employer in the form of fines. If the law is aimed at employers there would be no need to deport illegals. When the jobs dry up they will leave on their own. With that kind of enforcement we could be magnanimous toward illegals who have been in the U.S. for a long time, or have families where the spouse or some of the kids are citizens.

If conservatives who want to control illegal immigration band together with liberals who what to show compassion on illegals we might be able to overcome the business lobby in their efforts to secure cheap labor. Also, there would be no general guest worker program and the current program would be greatly cut back.

superdestroyer:

The first step is to include the IRS, Social Security Administraiton, and state tax agencies in the enforcement.

What they should get is an audit from the IRS, a visit from ICE, and a vist from the state tax collector to find out what else they are cheating on.

When a business nows that it is risking its future if it hires an illegal alien, the illegal immigraiton will stop.

Matt:

DJ,

START ENFORCING THE LAW THAT IS ON THE BOOKS NOW

What part of that statement is difficult to understand?

How? Here is how.

The President needs to inform his underlings in the various branchs subordinate to him that they will enforce the law. He needs to request fro congress the funds for the border fence and spend them! He needs to make Department of Homeland Defense start doing their job and expeditiously start recruiting and feilding the required number of Border Patrol agents, and tell them to recall the ones that have been sent to other countries. In the interim, the President can deploy the National Guard to the U.S. Border to help apprehend trespassers, and smugglers. Apprehend, not just observe. If there aren't enough Nat'l Guard on hand, recall them from IRAQ. He can fire anybody, including the Attorney General that doesn't support his plans. Have the justice department vigorously pursue Sanctuary Cities. Have the Justice Department vigorously pursue employers that hire illegal immigrants. The EPA can show them how to enforce laws against major corporations. That's a start.

If the President of the United States does not want to enforce the Laws of the United States, he should resign, or be impeached.

Congress can put pressure on the President to do his Job. Voters can and will put pressure on Congress to do their job, and support U.S. Citizens.

The various states have already started by putting forward legislature that limits types of welfare that Illegal Immigrants can receive, sanctions agains employers etc.

Matt:

The Federal Government knows how to enforce laws. It enforces them against the unwilling all the time. Hundreds and thousands of laws are enforced by the Feds every single day.

It isn't a lack of ability to enforce laws that is hampering immigration enforcement, it is an executive branch and subordinate departments that have decided NOT to enforce immigration laws.

If the laws on the books aren't suitable for enforcement, better ones can be written. For success the Congress needs to stop trying comphrensive bills and take immigration reform one law at at time.

Has anyone noticed that the amnesty-supporters are claiming that we can't round up and deport 12 million illegals, but that we can run 24-hour background checks on all 12 million illegals? And the government can't even get a passport out to a born-in-the-USA citizen in less than 3 months.

The laws are already there. And Lee, it might have missed your keen lefty mind, but there's already at least a half-dozen guest worker programs, including one for agricultural workers.

By the way, Lee, did you know that illegals don't get paid the minimum wage? Why aren't you up in arms about that?

I believe the senate and house should focus on securing the border. When they prove they can in fact do that, a year or two, then I am believe a very significant number of others will be willing to talk about the 12 million that are here. The bill did not need to be so comprehensive and complicated. The process was bypassed. Personally I just did not feel right about this bill. Something needs to be done and something will be done. This can't be treated like it is the only plan possible so no others will be persued.

Lee, agriculture gets as many workers as needed, as always. Like I said earlier, you are a punchline. Go away. Thanks. ww

I sent an e-mail to the WH this morning. I implored the President to use the 16 months leading up to the 2008 election to prove that we can secure the border and enforce workplace employment laws. Use this time to regain the confidence of the American people that we can get this done and are serious abou it.

The next bill would do well if it didn't have Kennedy's fingerprints all over it. The Swimmer has had his paws on almost every immigration bill since he was first elected to the Senate. Fine lot of good that's done us. All he wants is to make it as easy as he can to let illegals get into the USA.
