Tough stuff here this morning , Sessions and Vitter are sick of the BS

Other bills in the package would:


• Block federal funding from cities that bar their police from asking about immigration status.


• Give the Department of Homeland Security the authority to use information from the Social Security Administration to target illegal immigrants.


• Require construction of 700 miles of fencing along the Southern border, not including vehicle barriers.


• Impose sanctions on countries that refuse to repatriate their citizens.


• Deport any immigrant, legal or illegal, for one drunken-driving conviction.


• Enable local and state police to enforce federal immigration laws

WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans are set to announce Wednesday the hardest-hitting package of immigration enforcement measures seen yet -- one that would require jail time for illegal immigrants caught crossing the border, make it harder for them to open bank accounts and compel them to communicate in English when dealing with federal agencies.

Halleluhah!

There must be a God after all!

Apparently; the Karma invoked by those fools flying the Mexican flag during the illegal immigrants' rights rallies 2 years ago is coming back to haunt the pro illegal camp.

Yes, it is good news and it should have backfired on them.

LOL, guess who has to bring it up for a vote?

Quote:
Jim Manley, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the Republican proposal "falls far short of what is needed." Democrats want to combine enforcement with a guest-worker program and a way to deal with the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants. Reid "continues to support legislation that is tough on people who break the law, fair to taxpayers and practical to implement," Manley said.

Most of the bills stand little chance of being debated in the Democrat-controlled Congress.

Not true, the SAVE Act has a VERY GOOD chance.

Sen Sessions and Sen Vitter are two of the senators that can always be counted on to help our country fight this illegal invasion. They rock!

Even if it passes the house and the keyword is even, it won't pass the senate because the senate leadership won't allow it. Unlike the house, the senate minority can't force the majority to bring anything up for a vote.

Must be an election year. That's what I like about election year. It's when the polititians finally introduce bills that the people have been asking for, instead of the bills they've been working on behind the publics eye.
