The senator’s bill, titled the “Immigration Stabilization Act,” overhauls the nation’s immigration laws, and calls for a massive scale-down of immigrants allowed into the country. The bill also changes asylum laws to prevent phony asylum seekers.

The senator said the U.S. open door policy is being abused at the expense of honest, working citizens.

The senator continued:

“We are a country founded upon fairness and justice. An individual in real threat of torture or long-term incarceration because of his or her political beliefs can still seek asylum. But this bill closes the door to those who want to abuse America’s inherent generosity and legal system.”

“Our borders have overflowed with illegal immigrants placing tremendous burdens on our criminal justice system, schools and social programs. The Immigration and Naturalization Service needs the ability to step up enforcement. Our federal wallet is stretched to the limit by illegal aliens getting welfare, food stamps, medical care, and other benefits often without paying any taxes.”

“Safeguards like welfare and free medical care are in place to boost Americans in need of short-term assistance. These programs were not meant to entice freeloaders and scam artists from around the world. Even worse, Americans have seen heinous crimes committed by individuals who are here illegally.”

Powerful Democrat Calls Illegal Aliens ‘Free Loaders and Scam Artists’

Treason must pay a princely sum. Wow, just wow .. .

"How is it that Harry Reid was exactly right 16 years ago, but is so completely wrong now? Why does Reid oppose programs he once sponsored now that the problem is seven times greater after 9/11? "


Someone lined his pockets.

It sounds like they lined a vault in his honor. He continues to troll around the house and senate looking for votes to pass another shamnesty.

Sounds like the National Council of La Raza, industries such as the Farming industry and the Meat Packing industries that have a vested interest in keeping illegal aliens employed at the expense of the American Taxpayer, etc.. ALL decided to give Reid some "contributions"..

He saw the light that tells him to ignore immigration laws and reward criminals, which you seem to embrace happily considering that you're no better than the criminals he's trying to assist.
