I'm going to embark on some pretty 'radical' thoughts here just to get you thinking. Now that the Senate knows how we feel and the House has made it clear they will not go along with a bill similar to the senate bill concerning illegal immigration, what's next? Is it impossible for the Senate to come up with a bill that includes, at this time, only what is needed to enforce existing laws and secure our border? I mean, why does every bill have to include so many unrelated and/or not required stipulations? It IS against the law to illegally immigrate into the US. The government already has the right to protect our border and deport illegal aliens. As I see it there is no need for a bill to do what we need to do first and that is secure our border. If they feel they need a new bill RIGHT NOW how about making English the official language of the US. How about making it illegal to knowingly rent to an illegal or employ an illegal with harsh penalties attached. How about abolishing the anchor baby law which was only meant for those African-Americans brought here illegal as slaves and make it retroactive to the last amnesty signed by Reagan so that no child born to an illegal immigrant (without at least one legal US citizen parent) will have American citizenship unless that illegal immigrant parent or child has since become a legal citizen through legal means. Another stipulation that would help in our fight would be empowering the border patrol and military to use whatever means necessary and not allowing illegal aliens to sue our authorities. Lets make it a requirement to report all possible illegal aliens to the proper authorities by schools, employers, hospitals and government entities. Increase the penalties for anyone found with false identification or found making such. Develop a new way of correctly identifying citizens and, therefore, non-citizens. Abolish 'no child left behind'. Ensure that no assistance is given to any illegal alien or his/her children besides emergency medical care including, WIC, schooling, welfare or non-emergent medical care. Last but not least let's take control of our Senate. They are overstepping their bounds in many realms. The individual states have had power robbed of them by a Senate out of control.
In closing, a new threat to our freedoms by our Senate is looming. Stop the Senate in their push to re-institute the fairness doctrine and take away our freedom of speech. Every day conservative Americans are up against a predominately liberal media whether it be in print or television but you don't hear the Senators screaming for the fairness doctrine. The radio is our means of having not only a voice but WE can actually call and challenge these hosts ensuring we are not getting a one sided media. The fact that liberals don't like what they say does not make this wrong. Conservative talk show hosts are happy to have liberal callers and guest. The fact that the few liberals who have tried this genre have failed is not a matter of fairness but of talent and demand. Citizens can watch TV and get liberal bias, they don't need to turn to radio nor do they seem to wish to. Conservative radio is intelligent discussion where most liberals are happy with unchallenged rhetoric. The fairness doctrine is very one sided because you won't see them using it on liberal newscasts etc. This is merely a freedom of speech issue whereas the liberals want to shut up those with a differing opinion.
