Here's one Congressmen that gets it. The Hagel/Martinez Senate Bill will make illegal aliens legal, and may result in 100-200 million more aliens within 20 years in this country, beyond who would normally come in thru legal means. Ive heard Bush's plan does the same thing. Many will be granted immediate entry into the already stressed out Social Security Program, without even paying a dime into it. Notwithstanding the stress which will be placed on infrastructure, schools and the highways, which are already clogged. This is messed up.
My 2 cents worth would be to immediately protect the borders, bring in troops from Japan, Germany or Iraq if need be. Heavily fine employers, take the ability to hire away from them. With no where to go they may return home. Begin deportation even if it takes 20 years. It took years for the US to get where it is, it will take years to get it back........

Tancredo Slams Senate’s Compromise on Amnesty

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO), Chairman of the 97-member House Immigration Reform Caucus, slammed the Senate’s compromise amnesty deal that was announced today. The amnesty compromise, brokered by Senators Harry Reid and Bill Frist, brings the Senate one step closer to passing an illegal alien amnesty next week.

“By caving in to the Democrats this morning, Bill Frist pushed the Senate towards the biggest illegal alien amnesty in American history. It is a sad day for legal immigrants who embrace this country by following our laws, and it is a sad day for all Americans who are concerned about our national and economic security,” said Tancredo. “Frist has put the Senate on a collision course with the House. I again ask Speaker Hastert to abide by his word and to resist bringing up any bill that doesn’t have a majority of the Republican Conference behind it.”

The amnesty compromise would bring the failed Hagel-Martinez bill back to the Senate floor this Monday as the cornerstone of the Senate’s approach. Hagel-Martinez creates a three-tiered system: illegal aliens who have been here longer than 5 years would be granted blanket amnesty; those here between 2 and 5 years would be given foreign worker privileges with a right to citizenship; those who arrived within the last two years – since 2004 – would be told to leave. Critically, Hagel-Martinez allows illegal aliens to “prove” how long they’ve been in the U.S. with almost any document imaginable including pay stubs, time sheets, and union or day labor center records.

Tancredo continued, “No illegal alien with half a brain would admit that they came here after 2004. And how could law enforcement tell? The Senate deal asks people who have broken the law for years – often using fraudulent documents – to provide proof that they’ve lived here. And it permits unscrupulous employers who have illegally hired and concealed them to vouch for their new legal status. I can guarantee that many of those fraudulent documents – which law enforcement hasn’t been able to detect yet – will be used to obtain legal status.”

The amnesty compromise allows Frist and Reid to appoint 7 conferees each, while 12 more conferees will come from the Senate Judiciary Committee (7 Republicans and 5 Democrats). This conference set up virtually guarantees that a majority of Senate conferees favor amnesty because only 6 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee voted against the Specter amnesty plan in committee. (Under the best case scenario, if all 6 of those Senate Judiciary Committee members were appointed to Conference and Frist’s 7 appointees were all solidly against amnesty, the Conferees would be split 13-13 on amnesty. Harry Reid previously blocked consideration of bills that didn’t include amnesty, so it’s highly unlikely that any of his 7 appointees would favor enforcement-first).

“The Senate amnesty deal continues the running joke that is our immigration system by treating the same crimes differently. In a perverse rendition of hide-and-seek, it grants a reward to those who evaded law enforcement for the longest time. And, as we did in 1986, it will encourage more illegal aliens to come into this country in the hope of yet another amnesty,” said Tancredo.

Had Tancredo been a look out on the Titanic he would have been on the fantail. No mater how good a job everyone thinks he did... he's still going down with the ship.

Didnt you all slam Bush for overspending. Now the Congress and Bush wants to grant amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens and their families, stress out an already stressed out SS system which many of them will never pay into, stress out overcrowded schools in areas where they live, usurp the infrastructure. You cant have it both ways.....Tancredo gets it you dont.

See Slug's post. Tancredo is going down with the ship and you are going with him, Frank. I'm not certain it's right, but that's the way it is.

That may be true, but he's the only one with any balls.
