Senator Democrat Harry Reid stuck a figurative stick in both eyes of patriotic Americans who want to avoid the awful mistake of 1986 when the Immigration Reform and Control Act was passed with the promise that it would end illegal immigration once and for all.
As described at the reference, Reid decided that border security was less important than legalizing at least 11 million invaders, the great majority of whom will vote Democrat for life:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) made a move to formally kill an amendment Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) offered to the immigration bill. It would require border security before America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants are granted amnesty.
Reid filed a motion to “table” the amendment, a move that he used to quickly push for an up-or-down vote. A vote in favor of tabling the amendment would kill it. A vote against tabling the amendment would allow it to move through for debate. Essentially, a vote for Reid’s motion is a vote against securing the border before amnesty. Likewise, a vote against Reid’s motion is a vote for securing the border before granting amnesty.
The Senate Reference guide describes a motion to table as: “The motion is used to dispose quickly of questions the Senate does not wish to consider further.”
Reid’s motion to table the amendment passed 57-43, with Gang of Eight Republican Sens. John McCain (R-AZ). Marco Rubio (R-FL), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) voting with Reid. Democrat Sens. Joe Manchin and Mark Pryor voted against Reid in favor of border security before amnesty, as did Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH). Ayotte had previously indicated support for the Gang of Eight bill.”
Reid’s action affirms the fact that most Democrats are loathe to even thinking about border security, because all of those new potential Democrats are far too appealing to those who do not give a damn about American sovereignty, language and culture.
We expect traitorous behavior from Democrats—that is their mark.
However, Republicans are supposed to be the party of law and order and common sense. That supposition is clearly out the window for the likes of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Marco Rubio.
McCain, Graham, and Rubio must be removed from the US Senate by Tea Party candidates who respect and love America!
