Senate won't hear immigration bill until Tuesday

"We'll be handling that bill in full tomorrow," Senate President Mike Haridopolos said on the Senate floor Monday afternoon. "We want to make sure the language is correct."

The changes to SB 2040 are "very, very technical," Haridopolos said, adding that he had spoken to Sen. Nan Rich, a Weston Democrat and minority leader, about holding off on the debate until Tuesday.

SB 2040 should be passed regardless of what is in it.......

Get it in conference with the House......then drop the Senate bill and adopt the HOuse Bill 7089 minus the crime bill portion so the end result is mandatory e-verify.....

The demonstrations that took place yesterday were far less in numbers than previous years. Could it be that illegal immigrants now realize their demands have angered the American people so much that there is no sympathy anymore? That citizens and permanent residents are sick and tired of being the payee of everybody who skips federal processing and have no intentions of being strong armed by the radical open border zealots There is absolutely no excuse when we know that thousands of these people are in this country illegally and not rounded up. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE INFINITE POWER TO STOP THIS SILENT CONSPIRACY CALLED ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. DON’T BE DISTRACTED BY THE LIBERAL MEDIA, WHO ARE TRYING TO BRAIN WASH YOU; CALLING EVERY PERSON AN IMMIGRANT? THE MAJORITY OF INDIVIDUALS ARE ECONOMIC ALIENS, WHO ARE FLOODING THIS COUNTRY WITH BIRTHRIGHT CHILDREN. THIS NATION IS BROKE, PAYING FOR TWO WARS, PAYING ENTITLEMENTS, PAYING FOR EVERYONE WALZING THROUGH THE UNDERMANNED BORDER, OR FLYING IN?

Remember that Americans will get no empathy of their job losses from the Obama Czarist administration or the Bush Republicans. All those teeming street rallies mean future votes for Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and the buffoons, hiding their true identities as Liberals. Nor from Bush Republicans who don't want to see, a giant loss of illegal workers; they bolster the profit margins of corporate welfare. ICE agents could have checked people in the crowds for their identification, with no prejudice to skin color? That's why all soft Governors, Mayors, police chiefs and elected official who run Sanctuary States of California and elsewhere need to be removed from office and replaced by TEA PARTY representatives of the American people. FIND OUT IF YOUR MEMBER IN THE STATE OR FEDERAL CONGRESS, IS AN AVID BELIEVER IN THE TEA PARTY POLITICAL TICKET. IF NOT THEY MUST BE REMOVED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

This is another reason why all legal law abiding people must insist on a mandatory E-Verify program for every legitimate business throughout America. No more half measures of voluntary E-Verify, so thousands of businesses can walk over the unemployed faces of Americans. We need more lightening ICE strikes on companies not toeing the line? So more "Whistle Blowers" feel they are not being disregarded by the immigration authorities, for informing on businesses where they are employed. Further every police department must be equipped with Secure Communities permanently, with access to ICE data bases. Thousands of Companies feel they are outside the law, but if they lose their business licenses, get fine, along with asset confiscation and jail, it might make the owners sweat a bit. Most certainly the extra cash will not benefit them if the monetary fine is $ 50.000 dollars or more, or sitting in a cell? ICE should audit not just a few restaurants, but hospitals, large corporations and a big resister of the law, Unions hiding illegal immigrants.

IF YOU WANT TO STOP THIS MOCKERY OF OUR LAWS, THE SANCTUARY CITIES AND STATES, CHAIN MIGRATION, THE DREAM ACT, AND ALL STEALTH VERSIONS OF IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT IS ANOTHER NAME FOR MASS AMNESTY, JOIN THE PEOPLES PARTY, THE TEA PARTY IN YOUR TOWN, CITY OR AT THE NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS.

The most powerful nation in the world is falling foul to Communist china. This has been forced upon us by unfair trade practices and the manipulation of currency by the Chinese. This unfair advantage has deteriorated our manufacturing base, the shutdown of thousands of companies that were making quality products, compared to the foreign countries that have imported cheap goods into this nation. Hundreds of thousands of average Americans lost their jobs, AND FOR WHAT. To bring cheap goods to America? The only people making huge profits are international mega corporations, which have taken US jobs offshore and across borders. The TEA PARTY will end this erroneous belief and tax US companies bringing low-priced inferior goods. We are the greatest population of consumer buyers in the world and we have the ability to place tariffs on all goods entering America, instead of these unequal trade policies that we have with NAFTA, CAFTA and China.

We are destroying our own country, with millions of foreign national pouring through illegally and others through attorney loopholes. Donald Trump in one of his many speeches, this time in Nevada about China and its huge financial impact on the American economy, “I’d drop a 25% tax” on imports from China.” There is no doubt in my mind that we must stop poorly made imports from china; toys tainted with lead paint, bad food imports. The only winners in this trade war are importers and China. My wife buys instant gratification from a deluge of catalogs. Unfortunate Cheap buys from Chinese manufacturers only last a few months, if you are lucky?

I hope that the bill would also be beneficial to immigrants who wish to stay legally. I mean we must put a stop to illegal immigration but we can't just scare away people from migrating in the US to do that.
