BROKEN ARROW Congress is leaning toward a guest worker-type program as one means of addressing illegal immigration, 1st District Congressman John Sullivan said Friday at a Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce breakfast.

"One of the proposals being looked at is a card for those who want to work here that would be good for, let's say, three to five years," Sullivan said. "There'd be some sort of biometric identification and a background check to make sure they're not a criminal. They'd be able to work here, and they'd also pay taxes. "

Sullivan said the card would allow the holder to leave and re-enter the United States and could be renewed but would not confer citizenship.

"If they want to become a citizen, they can apply for a green card (signifying permanent resident status) and go through the process," Sullivan said.

The Tulsa Republican said he expects some action on the issue after the coming presidential election, regardless of who wins.

"Sullivan was among the earliest members of Congress to make illegal immigration an issue but has not talked about it as much recently. On Friday, he said rhetoric on both sides of the issue has gotten out of hand.

"We need to put all of that aside and have a good debate on it," he said.


I am (the people of the United States of America) not debating anything until you (the Federal Government) cleans up the current mess you allowed with your prostitution to the Mexican government which allowed it to interfere with our judicial systems.

The crap is piled to heaven . . you are allowing illegal aliens to vote!

The Federal Government's dismal track record and purposeful failure, if not actual interference to enforce our existing immigration laws is outrageous. Not to mention the breach of trust regarding our financial systems in allowing mortgages and property purchases by illegal aliens. Not to mention, the bankrupting of our country via social services consumed by illegal aliens. Not to mention, gross negligence of our national security.

The great injustice, is the postion of responsibility entrusted by the people of this country to you, because it only has one expectation -- honor. Instead, you betray us at every turn to be whores!

"To address illegal immigration concerns", seriously, what the hell is that supposed to mean?

"Sullivan says a proposal being considered is for a card for illegal immigrants who want to work in the U.S."

Ah. Verbiage to once again skirt reality. They are illegal aliens! There is no such thing as an illegal immigrant. Yet another attempt at amnesty.

Deport every one of them who breached our border and then we can talk about a program to legally allows workers under a guest worker program into the country. If you are not going to be responsible to the citizens of this country, then remove yourself from office.

Second verse, same as the first . .

November 16, 2004
"The chairman of a House International Relations subcommittee yesterday urged the Bush administration to drop its proposed temporary guest-worker program and not "reward Mexican nationals living and working illegally in the United States" with legal status.
Cooperation with our close neighbor Mexico is essential, but we also feel that Mexico must respect our sovereignty and our laws, and should encourage its citizens to do the same," Mr. Gallegly said in the letter, which was co-signed by 21 other members of Congress."

Allies of Reason :

In addition to Mr. Gallegly, others to sign the letter were Republican Reps. Lamar Smith, Sam Johnson and John Culberson of Texas, John Hostettler of Indiana, Charlie Norwood and Nathan Deal of Georgia, Ed Royce and Gary G. Miller and Dana Rohrabacher of California, and Tom Tancredo of Colorado.

Also, Reps. John J. "Jimmy" Duncan Jr. of Tennessee, Roscoe G. Bartlett of Maryland, Kevin Brady of Texas, Robert B. Aderholt of Alabama, Charles W. "Chip" Pickering Jr. of Mississippi, John Sullivan of Oklahoma, J. Gresham Barrett of South Carolina, Barbara Cubin of Wyoming, Sue Myrick and Walter B. Jones of North Carolina and Steve King of Iowa.
