   A popular movie of the past was the Magnificent Seven. A story of seven cowboys who decided to stay and defend the defenseless women and children of a Mexican city threatened by "bandits". Yesterday we had 14 U.S. Senators brave enough to stand against the President and the rest of the Senate who were ignoring the wishes of those who elected them, and stop the "amnesty bill" in the Senate.
This bill had hidden costs of over trillion dollars in taxpayer costs if it had passed. But thanks to the brave 14 the bill is DOA!
Despite the defeat, one of the sponsors of this dastardly bill that was opposed by 70% of the American public. Senator Kennedy had the colossal chutzpah to say afterwards:"We will be back. This issue is not going away. And we will ultimately be successful." Then he said something that shows the true nature of this man. "This is really a part of the whole march for progress for our Nation and our Country." Say what!?!?
Either this man is too stupid and alcohol sodden to know they are one and the same, or he means the Country internationalists like him hope will be a new Country of Mexico and the United States united as one!
A Rasmussen poll taken yesterday showed that only 20% of those polled want to revive this bill that would grant amnesty to up to 20 million illegals. This shows how far removed from the voters thinking our elected representatives have become.
Despite the predictions of doom from pseudo conservatives like Linda Chavez this is now the time for the government agencies to do what they are paid for and enforce the immigration laws already on the books. No we can't send them all back, but we can deport all illegals who commit crimes and start arresting employers who use illegals. States like Arizona, Texas and New Mexico should enact laws forbidding employers from hiring illegals in their state, and enforce the law.
Arizonas woman Governor should quit diddling around and sign the bill on her desk that addresses this issue or be recalled.
