>>Obama Says He Backs New Push to Overhaul U.S. Immigration Laws – Bloomberg.com
Posted March 13, 2010on:
Something has to be done about the illegal aliens in the United States, but first we have to secure our borders and that doesn’t seem to be happening under Obama and Home Land Security Sec. Nancy Napolitano. The borders are in fact more open now than in the past and border guards are not being screened under the lax DHS attitude. At the same time DHS is hounding the Arizona sheriff who makes his prisoners wear pink underwear and is hard on illegals from arresting illegal aliens. The sheriff of course told the feds where to stick their rules and regulations.:)
Still two Senators are going forward with their plans.
Democratic Senator Charles Schumer and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who are drafting an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws. They gave him an update on attempts to lay out a path to win bipartisan support for the measure.Schumer, of New York, and Graham, of South Carolina, are working on a measure that would create a guest-worker program, tighten border security and resolve the status of the estimated 12 million immigrants in the country illegally. They also want the nation to adopt more secure Social Security cards to block undocumented immigrants from getting jobs.
Senator Lindsay Graham has always been too “middle of the road” for my taste but now it seems he has been trying to out-liberal the liberals. Has anyone else noticed this? BB
