But where is the other RINO McCain? Oh geez, here we go again. Obama and the Democrats are being destroyed over Healthcare reform and he is making noises about pushing Comprehensive Immigration Reform (aka Amnesty) this year? Honestly, I don’t get his ‘death-wish’ political strategy.
Hot off Drudge this morning is this from the LA Times:
Reporting from Washington – Despite steep odds, the White House has discussed prospects for reviving a major overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws, a commitment that President Obama has postponed once already.
Obama took up the issue privately with his staff Monday in a bid to advance a bill through Congress before lawmakers become too distracted by approaching midterm elections.
In the session, Obama and members of his Domestic Policy Council outlined ways to resuscitate the effort in a White House meeting with two senators — Democrat Charles E. Schumer of New York and Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — who have spent months trying to craft a bill.
According to a person familiar with the meeting, the White House may ask Schumer and Graham to at least produce a blueprint that could be turned into legislative language.
The basis of a bill would include a path toward citizenship for the 10.8 million people living in the U.S. illegally. Citizenship would not be granted lightly, the White House said. Undocumented workers would need to register, pay taxes and pay a penalty for violating the law. Failure to comply might [might?-ed] result in deportation.
Then the following line reminded me that I wanted to post on this demonstration the other day and didn’t. I will shortly. What is so stunning to me about this planned DC rally for open borders is that it is being organized by the Catholic Church (among others) and follows by one day the Communist/Muslim anti-war demonstration. Are they just going to recycle the protestors from one day to the next? You betcha!
Participants in the White House gathering also pointed to an immigration rally set for March 21 in Washington as a way to spotlight the issue and build needed momentum.
