Ignorance Plus Blind, Crass Political Lunacy or Expediency at its Worst – M3 Report – Nat. Assn. of Former Border Patrol Officers
Here’s the News of Import for 6-26-2013.
"At what point then is the approach
of danger to be expected? If it ever reaches us, it must spring up
amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot,
we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must
live through all time, or die by suicide." Abraham Lincoln

The stories/ Lies they tell.
1. Rubio: "I would vote against anything that grants amnesty because I think it destroys your ability to enforce the existing law and I think it's unfair to the people who are standing in line and waiting to come in legally. I would vote against anything that has amnesty in it."
2. Corker: "We need a new immigration policy that reflects America's values. First, secure this border. Allow people to work here but only if they're legal. No amnesty. Those employed but here illegally must go home and return through legal channels."
3. Wicker: "I agree that illegal immigration is a major issue that needs to be addressed. However, I oppose amnesty as the solution."
4. Ayotte: "For the people who are here illegally, I don't support amnesty; it's wrong. It's wrong to the people who are waiting in line here, who have waited for so long. And we need to stop that because I think that's where the Administration is heading next."
5. Flake: "I've been down that road, and it is a dead end. The political realities in Washington are such that a comprehensive solution is not possible, or even desirable given the current leadership. Border security must be addressed before other reforms are tackled."
The scheduled 7:00 a.m. opportunity to dialogue with Jeff Flake, Arizona’s junior senator and member of the pro-amnesty Gang of 8, was a bust.
Although his constituents were provided a toll-free call in number (1-855-428-0808) and ID (# 6224561**) to access the town hall, what we got instead was canned elevator music and ultimately -- after at least 15 minutes -- a message that informed those who dialed in that “the host” had failed to show. That was followed by a disconnect. Many tried again, receiving the same message after another extended wait.
6. Hatch: "We can no longer grant amnesty. I fought against the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli bill because they granted amnesty to 3 million people. They should have to get in line like anybody else if they want to come into this country and do it legally."
7. Heller: "I believe it is an amnesty program, a back-door amnesty program for the 12 to 15 million people who are here illegally."
8. Alexander: "We cannot restore a system of legal immigration "which is the real American Dream "if we undermine it by granting new benefits to those who are here illegally."
9. Collins: Before 2008 reelection, voted no on McCain-Kennedy amnesty.
10. Hoeven: Hoeven said the U.S. needs to secure its borders and crack down on employers who hire illegal immigrants.
11. McCain: "Complete the danged fence."
12. Graham: Amid withering criticism from his constituents, Graham, who is up for reelection next year, began to argue that it was time to approach the immigration problem in stages. On Thursday, he likened the decisive vote to pass his amendment to "having been robbed 12 million times and finally getting around to putting a lock on the door."
13. Kirk: "The American people believe our borders are broken. It is a fundamental duty of our government to know who is entering the country, making illegal entry nearly impossible. In the coming Congress, we have an overwhelming bipartisan consensus to restore confidence in the security of our borders "before we pursue other immigration proposals."
14. Murkowski: "With regard to undocumented aliens, I believe that those who illegally entered or remained in the United States should not be granted amnesty. Granting amnesty to illegal aliens sends the wrong message and is not fair to the vast majority of immigrants who abided by U.S. immigration laws. Granting amnesty would only encourage further illegal immigration."
15. Chisea: Joined most other Republicans, including opponents of the legislation, in supporting a proposal, which was defeated largely along party lines, that would have blocked legalization until the government can prove U.S. borders are secure. Chiesa said he sees border security as a top priority given his law enforcement background, and has yet to decide his stance on citizenship for immigrants without authorization.
Red State Democrats
1. Pryor: "I voted against the president's immigration plan today because the border security and enforcement measures are inadequate and the bill fails to effectively address the individuals who are already here illegally." Pryor says it's time for changes, "It's time for a new approach. I advocate that we strengthen and implement the enforcement measures in this bill and show we can fully enforce immigration laws."
2. Tester: He wants secure borders and no amnesty for law breakers.
3. Landrieu: "Sen. Landrieu is a leader in the U.S. Senate fighting against illegal immigration," Schneider said. "She has fought against amnesty for illegal immigrants and to provide more resources for border security. The new NRSC attack is designed simply to mislead voters about Sen. Landrieu's record."
4. Donnelly: "Eliminate amnesty because no one should ever be rewarded for breaking the law."
5. Hagan: Hagan said she supported increased border security and opposed amnesty.
6. McCaskill: Claire does not support amnesty. As a former prosecutor, Claire believes people who break the law should be held accountable, both illegal immigrants and the employers who exploit them for cheap labor. Claire does not believe we need any new guest worker programs undermining American workers.
7. Stabenow: Do you support path to citizenship for illegal immigrants? STABENOW: I voted no, because it went too far and cost us jobs. I do think it's important to have border security and legal system that is fair and effective. My focus is on our jobs that we're losing because of failed policies.
News of Import:
The lead story is the three Supreme Court Cases that impact us all in America.
In a 5-4 ruling in United States v. Windsor, Justice Kennedy on behalf of the majority, wrote decisively, that “DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment.” More specifically, Kennedy writes that the very notion of DOMA -- through which the federal government denied recognition of same-sex marriages performed by the states for no reason other than explicit discrimination -- was a violation of state's rights.
In a 5-4 ruling in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the challenge to the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion; "We have no authority to decide this case on the merits, and neither did the 9th Circuit," Roberts said, referring to the federal appeals court that also struck down Proposition 8.
In a 5-4 ruling in Shelby v. Holder part 4 of Voter rights act declared unconstitutional.
Just hours after the Supreme Court handed down a ruling that guts parts of the Voting Rights Act, Texas is moving forward with a controversial voter ID law that state Attorney General Greg Abbott hopes to implement right away. “With today’s decision, the state’s voter ID law will take effect immediately,” Abbott said in a statement to the Dallas Morning News. “Redistricting maps passed by the Legislature may also take effect without approval from the federal government.”
The Texas law requires voters to show photo identification to vote. A measure that was blocked by the Justice Department, arguing the law could discriminate against racial minorities. At the time, Attorney General Eric Holder called the law a “poll tax.”

Illegal aliens will obtain a legal "property right" under court precedents such as Goldberg v. Kelly, 397 U.S. 254 (1970). In 1970, the U.S. Supreme Court in Goldberg v. Kelly decided that welfare benefits become a vested property interest for those who qualify within the terms of the statute. This is so even though Congress had no obligation to offer the welfare benefits in the first place. Yet Congress did. So it became a vested right. Therefore, welfare benefits cannot be taken away from people without due process of law (meaning specific allegations of wrongdoing proven in a legal hearing).
Now, those who climbed through America's window illegally (normally called breaking and entering) will immediately gain a permanent, vested legal right to live and work in the United States. As soon as the bill is signed, amnesty becomes final for illegal aliens, along with their families. An estimated 33 million to 46 million future Democrats would result from amnesty to 11 million trespassers.

George Kollitides, the CEO of Freedom Group, which owns Bushmaster,“He killed the gun’s owner, stole her car, stole her gun and then went to a school and killed innocent kids. No background checks could have prevented that. He illegally obtained the guns,” he told me in his small New York office. “Only two things could have potentially stopped him: his mother locking up her guns and an armed guard. Even then, he could have driven his stolen car into a playground full of kids. He was intent on killing, which we know is already illegal.”
