I have been trying to find the 20 amendments that the Republicans wanted to be voted on in before Cloture on that "Comprehensive" immigration bill that, once again promises to blend a new "pathway to citizenship" and a "guest worker" program with securing our borders and a program to sanction employers who continue to hire and exploit illegal aliens. I found the vote talley for those who voted for and against Cloture http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=109&session=2&vote=00089 but I cannot find the final 20 amendments that the Republicans wanted votes on. I know that one of them had to do with "excepting" from the pathway to citizenship - illegal aliens who have committed felonies in our country. As I examine those Senators who voted for cloture on this bill without "excepting out" criminals and felons - I just cannot understand why they would do his "in our best interests?" Didn't we do this "comprehensive" amnesty/border contro/employee sanction thing under Reagan? Seems like illegal aliens got citizenship but we just never got around to the funding and enforcement to secure our borders and the controls on those employers who like the cheap labor provided by illegal aliens. Could it be that after the public flurry died down - our trusty legislators just wanted to keep the corporate good will and their sponsorship of those fundraisers that keep incumbants in office? Are our legislators "Puffing their stuff" and doing this same thing again and are we so stupid as to silently watch this happen? What exactly is wrong with securing our borders by legislation, funding and action FIRST? Then, when we control the flow into our country - begin to deal humanely with the 11 million who are here, develop our "guest worker program from them" and integrate them into our society (minus those who are felons and those who actively seek to hurt us from within). Otherwise - I suspect that another "comprehensive" immigration bill would go the same way as the last one and - we will be back in another 5 years with 25 million more illegal aliens. I would love to read any comments on this - pro or con. My question is answered by pointing me to where I can find the 20 proposed amendments and then - telling me how you did it!!!!
