I cannot believe the circus that is occurring in congress. The existence of the "gang of eight" and the statements being made by others in congress.
Why do we need this waste of time and taxpayer dollars?
Immigration "Reform" is Constitutional Reform. Pres Obama has allowed Harry Reid to assemble a "cabal" of special interest groups and vote seekers, including a consortium of the Judicial Committee, to replay the antics of a few years ago.
There is no "rational" reason for all of this "buffoonery" to take place. Sen. Schumer stood and proudly announced, in actuality, that both sides of the Senate conceded to arbitrate the obvious. Our Nation, particularly with the high level of risk which exist in the world to destroy our Nation and the sovereignty of our Republic, must effectively secure our borders.
This is an issue to be considered for "compromise?" This is one of the major responsibilities of Janet Napolitano, and since the time she stated the oath of office, she has been "grossly negligent and irresponsible" in accomplishing it.
However, this insidious disease, infecting the safety, security, and welfare of our CITIZENS and sovereignty of our Republic, is being tossed and played like a poker chip by the gang of eight. On top of this, Schumer, Reid and Leahy are exchanging laughable, platitudes of grandiose cliches about their accomplishment.
What the hell is wrong with this picture? Instead of using this deficiency as "barter," it should have initiated a hearing by the Judiciary Committee, to investigate the gross breach of oath and mission by the DHS.
The sad truth is that this is true for the majority of issues related to Illegal Immigration.
This bill, more importantly, this entire tainted and mal-adjusted process must stop now before our entire Constitution becomes irrelevant.
