#8 Rep. Pelosi criticizes border fence

EDINBURG, Texas (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called a plan to build fencing along parts of the Mexico border a "terrible idea" that overlooks local communities.

Pelosi made the comments during her trip to the Rio Grande Valley for the annual Hispanic Engineering, Science & Technology Week conference at the University of Texas-Pan American.

Excuse me, Madame Speaker. It's time to pander.
Oh. Thanks...
"I have been against the fence, I thought it's a bad idea even when it was just a matter of discussion," said Pelosi, D-Calif. "These are communities where you have a border going through them, they are not communities where you have a fence splitting them."
Well, not yet...
Last year, President Bush signed the Secure Fence Act requiring the construction of fencing along the 2,000-mile border. The plans call for about 370 miles of fence and 200 miles of vehicle barriers, including concrete barriers, by the end of 2008.
Anybody been keeping track of that?
Pelosi also touted legislation known as the DREAM Act that would make it easier for some illegal immigrants to receive higher education benefits. She spoke at a conference that drew more than 5,000 students for activities designed to inspire careers in science and technology.
The DREAM Act would eliminate a federal provision that discourages states from providing illegal immigrants with lower in-state tuition rates. It also would allow permanent residency for illegal immigrants who entered the country as children and have been admitted to an institution of higher education."It just isn't fair," Pelosi said. "Those young people who came to America one way or another ... their opportunities are curtailed because of the situation. And it's not only harmful to them — it's harmful to the country."

#9 I know it ain't Christian - or even civil - to hate people.

But I sure don't like Nancy Pelosi very much at all.

#11 Has anyone told those assholes that illegals can't vote?

#12 There's a move in several places to let non-citizens vote locally and maybe in state races too. Some members of this movement don't give much importance to legal vs. illegal immigrant along the way.

#13 Prepare yourself,

RE: Felon HEADSLAMMERS from Islamic countries and their illegal kissing kousins from down South...

Little Dicky Durbin is about to fuck over every US Citizen AGAIN by giving away "free" education [including 4 free years @ university] to every illegal immigrant here in America or any new one that shows up next year on our soil!

Small point, when Senator A$$ Drip Durbin "gives" away any money or tuition to anyone, its is our Money and Largess that he plays Big Shot with when he Pisses up the Wall!

Oh and BTW, The gall of this son of a Bitch is unlimited...
He stuck his amendment on the DoD appropriations bill for our Troops in Iraq.

wait for it....

He named it, Sen. Durbin's "Dream Act"


Plz God SMITE little dicky durbin with something so HORRIBLE that it will make his fellow travellers quake with fear.

#15 I'm beginning to see this as the "perfect storm" of events. First, the Feds didn't do anything, so the locals/States are taking it upon themselves to do it (here in metro Atlanta, several cities/counties have made it illegal to rent apartments to illegals, have started cracking down on 20 person "single family" homes, etc.). In fact, one County got their police "deputized" by ICE so that they could access ICE's database to see immigration status of those they pulled over for other (mostly driving) violations. This local action, combined with the slump in the housing market (which is where a lot of them work) may be the "perfect storm" we've been waiting on.

I just hope they actually move back home, and don't just call "squatter's rights" to stay here and get gubmint bennies.
