The important thing is that they know we are a force to be reckoned with and not just a temporary obstacle. They need to know that we are Mad as Hell and we are not going to take to take it anymore! :x"The people are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our Liberty"

8O I hate the way they sneak other bills in these, trying to pull a fast one on us with the Dream Act in there and all the stuff for the NAU and us closing Mexicos southern border.
The bill alone is so bad just on the immigration part that when you read it you feel like, how did they ever think something like this wasn't going to raise the hair on the backs of Americans, not to mention their tempers!!AUT*AGERE*AUT*MORI (EITHER ACTION OR DEATH)

Bill would permit illegal immigrants to stay
WASHINGTON - Millions of undocumented immigrants could get legal permission to stay in the U.S. by paying fines and symbolically re-entering the country, under an immigration reform bill introduced in the House Thursday.
The bill also would allow up to 400,000 foreign workers to come to the U.S. legally every year.
The legislation would require Homeland Security officials to certify that border security and worksite enforcement measures are in place before allowing foreign workers to apply for new visas. It would force undocumented immigrants to leave the country and then re-enter before they could apply for conditional legal status that would eventually lead to citizenship.
Those mandates were added to the proposed legislation during careful negotiations aimed at giving cover to Republican supporters of the bill in hopes of avoiding the partisan standoff that killed similar legislation last year.
Supporters said they have crafted a bill that can pick up enough supporters in both parties to pass.
"This bill will end illegal immigration," said Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., the bill's chief co-sponsor along with Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill.
Supporters of immigration reform believe they have their best chance of passing legislation in years, with Democrats in control of Congress and the White House pressing hard for GOP allies to sign on to the bill as well. The Senate passed similar legislation last year, but border security hard-liners in the House kept the two chambers from negotiating a final compromise proposal.
But Thursday's move underscored the difficulties still ahead for reformers, who had expected the Senate to take up immigration well before the House did. Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., are still discussing what to do about immigration in the Senate, weeks after lobbyists and aides had hoped a bill would be introduced.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the new bill provides "an excellent framework" for immigration legislation, and community organizers said they hoped the bill would help move the debate along.
"We can never forget that the immigration reform debate is about real people," said a statement from the Fair Immigration Reform Movement, an umbrella group of organizers of many of the massive marches for reform last spring. "Every day our immigration system remains broken is another day when good people fall victim to exploitation on the job and children wait hopelessly to be reunited with their parents."
The tougher provisions added to the bill did little to placate longtime critics.
"They keep changing the shade of lipstick, but like I've said time and time again, it's still the same old pig," said Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., who is running for the GOP presidential nomination on a fiercely anti-illegal immigration platform
