The real goal of reform, Hayworth told a Senate Judiciary panel on immigration, is to make it easier for illegal immigrants to remain in the United States "because some Republicans want cheap labor, and some Democrats want cheap votes."

"First the Bush administration and now the Obama administration have both expressed the desire for so-called 'comprehensive immigration reform,' " said Hayworth, a conservative Republican who served 12 years in Congress. "While the term 'comprehensive' suggests complete or all-encompassing reform, the American people see it for what it is: amnesty for those who have entered this country illegally."
Hayworth denounces immigration reform efforts

Mr. Hayworth couldn't have said it any better.

Is that why the people of Arizona rejected Mr.Hayworth and embraced a so called "pro-illegal" in 2006?

COMPREHENSIVE REFORMER. During the 2006 campaign, immigration proved to be a contentious issue. Hayworth tried to cast his challenger as a supporter of “amnesty” – and Social Security benefits – for undocumented immigrants. Mitchell supported the Senate-passed comprehensive immigration reform bill, which would enhance enforcement and require undocumented workers to enroll in a legalization program or face deportation. [National Journal – 2006 New Member Profiles – Harry Mitchell] When the Senate reform bill died in June 2007, Mitchell said: "I am deeply disappointed that the Senate today let down the American people, who made clear last November that they are looking to Congress to end illegal immigration. At the very least, Congress owes the American people a vote on comprehensive immigration reform." [Mitchell press release, 6/28/07] Around the same time, he also penned an opinion piece titled “Immigration Status Quo Unacceptable for Congress." He praised the work of those senators trying to find compromise on the issue: “And while their final product was far from perfect, they tried to do what voters send them here to do get something done to fix the problem.” [Mitchell op-ed, Arizona Republic, 6/10/07]

Things have changed since 2006. Many eyes were closed then, that are now wide open. I wasn’t even involved in the immigration debate until after the entitlement marches in 2006.

And; eyes are opening wider by the day--------even more and more self described bleeding heart liberals have made a very hard right turn when illegals are being discussed. That is how deep the anger is festering here in the USA.

Those marches happened well before the november elections in 2006. Also, the "pro-illegal " congressman won his re-election race last year too.

I said I wasn't involved until after the marches. In other words, I am one of the people who changed. Regarding his re-election, who knows how many illegals voted for him, or dead people, pets, etc. In any case, in 2009 things are changing rapidly, and more and more people are getting fed up with illegal aliens.
