Let's see: The Congressman is doing something legal and he's using the rights the Founding Fathers gave us. In other words.... he's being a good American. And they wish him death.

Most of the far-right really do need to secede. They are so tremendously unhappy living under the laws of this country. They hate anyone who doesn't toe their line. So scoot! Good riddance. Leave the country to those of us who appreciate the Constitution and our rights as citizens.


Selling out the country to illegal aliens who have no right to be here in order to get votes isn't being a good American.

Lol, He's got the right to support them. The far-right is not in charge of deciding immigration policy. (We have this thing called Congress for things like that.) And... woo hoo.... Congressman Kennedy can use the Bill of Rights without the far-right dictating to him.

It's a great country. We are all beneficiaries of the Constitution! As upsetting as that may be to some of you.

Joe is one of the Kennedys who can't drive and paralyzed a girl when he was young.

I'll bet he never thinks twice about her.

Someone should have notified Obama of this before he illegally and unconstitutionally enacted the Dream Act after Congress voted it down. I can also use the Bill Of Rights to criticize Kennedy.

DewDropInn, in case you can't comprehend what you're reading, us right-wingers are making fun of him. He's a moron, illegal immigration is a crime and there should be no amnesty in any circumstance. If he wants to fast over the issue, so be it, but it's still a crime that he is advocating for. You and your liberal kind know that most Americans don't support your agenda, so you want illegal aliens to come into this country to use our welfare system.

He's foolish? Hardly. He building his base. The tea party is going down for the third time and HIS backers and the people he's fasting with are going to be making laws in this country. . I cannot wait to hear the far-right howling in 2016 because they can't figure out what they did wrong. Pay attention boys and girls. That Kennedy is about to show you how power is attained.
if the fascist liberals keep pushing the amnesty crap..it will be their undoing

do you really want to go there


Ronald Reagan was opposed to illegal immigration and amnesty. In fact, if you do a little research you will find that stopping illegal immigration was part of the Republican National Committee’s platform back then and Ronald Reagab ran on that platform.

The 1986 Immigration Reform Act that rewarded illegal aliens with amnesty was known as the Simpson-Massoli bill of 1986. When first drafted, the bill was suppose to make it a criminal offense for aliens who were not authorized to work in the United States a federal criminal act and that it would be a federal crime for employers to hire illegal aliens.

Here's what happened, the Democrats in Congress refused to sign on this bill unless the 1.5 million illegal aliens already thought to be in the country illegally and would qualify for amnesty were rewarded amnesty. (reason being, if these illegal’s were to become U.S. citizens, guess what party they would most likely vote for ? )

So the amnesty part was added on to the bill other wise the Democrats wouldn't sign on. And to muffle the out cry, the American people were told that this amnesty was a one time thing and would never be repeated again.


Well the bill passed both houses of Congress and President Reagan signed the bill. In the inner circles of the administration, Ronald Reagan was to have said he may have made a mistake by signing the bill.
Guess what ?, it wasn't 1.5 million illegal aliens who would have qualified for amnesty. It turns out that over 3 million were rewarded with amnesty, mostly because of the fraud that took place during the amnesty process. Phony rent receipts, phony pay check stubs, liberal judges expunging criminal records of illegal aliens!!!

And after the bill became law, you had Teddy Kennedy watering down the enforcement part of the bill that had to do with enforcing and prosecuting employers who hired illegal aliens.




why is it the liberals CONSTANTLY push for amnesty???

liberals constantly want to give the illegals amnesty

9 amnesty bills writen by....ted kennedy....8 passed

you might want to COMPLETE that picture...there have been 9 amnesty bills, 8 PASSED, since 1965....ALL authored by Ted Kennedy

In 1986 Senator Kennedy said, ‘This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.’


Here is Ted Kennedy commenting on the 1965 immigration bill,Quote
“The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission.” End of Quote.

In 1994, Ted Kennedy’s Section 245(i) Amnesty gave legal residence and jobs to 578,000 illegal aliens. It was a temporary rolling amnesty primarily for extended family members of immigrants who instead of waiting in line, come on to the country illegally.

In 1997, Ted Kennedy’s extension of the Section 245(i) rolling amnesty was followed by an increasing flow of illegal immigration.

In 1997, Ted Kennedy also won an amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America. Illegal immigration sped up some more.

In 1998, Ted Kennedy won an amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti.

In 2000, Ted Kennedy got the so-called Late Amnesty, legalizing another 400,000 illegal aliens who claimed that they missed out on Kennedy’s 1986 amnesty.

In 2000, Ted Kennedy also won the LIFE Act Amnesty for an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens. It was another reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty...an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens. Illegal immigration accelerated.槒

I am old enough to remember that and yes I objected to Reagan's amnesty also. The difference today is though that we have quadruple the number of illegals here that were amnestied back then with 23 million Americans out of work, a flailing economy and millions more people in our country today all vying for scarce jobs and resources.
