The new Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration actually referred to our invaders as “illegal aliens.” Imagine that.

Quote:
In remarks to a group of immigration policy wonks and advocates this past week, Schumer broached something that is usually reserved for Republicans: the fact that sneaking into this country over the border or overstaying a visa is wrong. And he also raised the notion of what to call people who are in this country illegally.

"When we use phrases like 'undocumented workers,' we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose,'' Schumer said.

He continued: "People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the United States legally.''

And this is the same dimwit who claimed that our borders are already secure enough.

He can talk and pretend to be tough all he wants but until I actually SEE reasonable border and port security and anti-illegal law enforcement I'm not buying anything.

Yes, it is the same dimwit. Clearly, he leans in whatever direction the winds blows.

And if I remember correctly, this Schumer is the same imbecile who was actively involved in crafting the 1986 amnesty.

After nearly 23 years I'm not so sure about trusting him this time.

Guys: reading between the lines; the Federal hammer is fixin' to fall very soon------and hard against illegal aliens.

I am starting to thinking the 'grass roots' anger is starting to concern Congress---------hence their show but definite shifting against anything that 'smells' of amnesty.

Suffice to say: if I were in the USA illegally; I would be making contingency plans to get out before facing the growing prospects of both forcible deportation and seizure of my ill gotten assets.

He sees votes blowing away in the wind.

Bingo!

Anger is indeed growing against those illegal alien losers----------and, their enablers.
