studentsprotest_LAAP reports: “Legislation to secure U.S. borders and offer millions of illegal immigrants access to the American dream cleared the Senate on Thursday, a rare election-year reach across party lines and a triumph for President Bush. The 62-36 vote cleared the way for arduous summertime compromise talks with the House on its version that focuses on border enforcement — with no guarantee of success.” (Photo credit)

Two words: Dios mio.

Our “elected leaders” in Washington have gone bandito, exercising a total disregard for the clear majority will of the American people. How should legal voters (and taxpayers) respond to this recklessness?

“Why not say to those undocumented workers who are working the jobs that the rest of us refuse, come out from the shadows,” said Arizona Republican John McCain, a key architect of the bill.

Barf. Newsflash to McCain: They’re not your amigos, and they’re still not going to vote for you.

Michelle Malkin: “Any hope now rests with the House.”

Chris Simcox, President of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (“MCDC”), issued the following statement on the passage today of an illegal alien amnesty bill by the U.S. Senate:

“The vote to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens by the United States Senate today, should it pass into law, would ensure that the status quo is maintained: the borders would remain wide open and the attractive nuisance of endless welfare and social programs at the expense of the American taxpayer would remain. Those climbing over the backs of those waiting patiently to abide by our laws; and instead breaking the law, illegally entering this country, and committing document fraud; those not paying taxes; and those hiring illegally would be granted full amnesty. American citizens would, of course, still be subject to prosecution for document fraud and tax evasion. This sends the message that if you play by the rules, you suffer; if you enter the United States illegally, you are not subject to the rule of law.

“The American people do not trust the government to grant amnesty now and secure the borders later. We already went down that road in 1986, and the borders remain wide open still today.

“Their constituents are watching, and these Senators will pay the price come election time. We are now focusing our attention on the House of Representatives where we do not expect amnesty to pass. The House is more respectful of their voters, as they stand for re-election every two years. The arrogance and cavalier disregard of the will of the American people by this Senate will not be forgotten—there will be an accounting. The American people are still sovereign in this country, not a gaggle of politicians pandering to their special interest donors.

“The existing border crisis is a dereliction of duty by those entrusted with this nation’s security, sovereignty and prosperity. The U.S. Senate just left America vulnerable to a tsunami of migrants at the border, to terrorist infiltration and to an unprecedented crime wave by drug smugglers, thieves, rapists, human traffickers and murderers who cross our frontier at will—and whose bravado and aggression will now increase with the Senate’s message of our apparent national weakness.

“But the Minutemen will remain on patrol, at our posts—and continue to build border fencing and barriers on private land with private donations until the U.S. government performs its most basic constitutional duty to these United States, and safeguards the people and protects the territorial integrity of America.”
