    Congress Defunds Border Fence, But Looking To Fund La Raza

    Congress Defunds Border Fence, But Looking To Fund La Raza
    Posted by Bernard in Border Fence, Congress, Homeland Security, House, Illegal Immigration, Mexico, News, Politics, Pres. Bush, Senate Friday December 21, 2007 at 9:50 am

    The 110th Congress may not be satisfied that it stealthily gutted the Secure Fence Act of 2006 this week, purposefully shortchanging its appropriations to forestall construction of a mandated double-layer border fence. Nor may this elitist band of tone-deaf legislators be entirely satisfied that it passed an ignominious amendment of Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison’s (R-TX) authorship that effectively gives the secretary of Homeland Security the sole discretion to build a fence or not build a fence (and regardless of American voters’ well-documented insistence on enforcement first).

    As incongruous as it may seem to sane people with the requisite common sense that perpetually eludes this Congress, Rep. Ruben Hinojosa (D-TX) has introduced HR-1999 (the “Hope Fund Act of 2007″) that would fund (see bill’s summary) the National Council of La Raza with a gift-wrapped bounty of taxpayers’ dollars. Writes John Wallace in an Op-Ed piece for News Blaze:

    The American people should also be aware that there is also a bill currently in Congress (HR-1999) to fund the National Council of La Raza, an anti-assimilation, pro-illegal alien organization. This bill asks the American people to give this pro-amnesty organization $5 million dollars in 2008 and $10 million a year for each fiscal year thereafter. This is like paying for the rope of your executioner so he can hang you.

    Seems the Grinch, in the form of our open-borders’ president, do-nothing Congress, and egregiously incompetent Department of Homeland Security, is determined to forsake “representative democracy

    The United States Government has become the greatest enemy and threat to the American Citizen. (I think I can be arrested for saying that!)
