Just let the frigging thing DIE already!

Can you believe that some Senators (and their money men) STILL want to try forcing amnesty through in one form or another?

A priority for many farm groups is the "Ag jobs" component, one of several programs now needing a new legislative vehicle. It would legalize about 1 million undocumented agricultural workers in the U.S., a key goal of growers whose crops can rot in the fields if not harvested at key times by people willing to work hard at low wages.
That's because "Big Agriculture" doesn't want to invest in developing machinery that would do it quicker,,,but sit idle until needed.

But at least we got through to some of them:
"The American people believe that until we're able to secure our borders and enforce our laws, taking additional steps is really not in the best interests of the country," House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, said after Thursday's crucial Senate vote that derailed the bill.

Some lawmakers immediately urged President Bush to accept defeat on the wide-ranging bill and ask Congress for an emergency spending bill for more border enforcement activities. "That would be a great next step after this vote," said Sen. David Vitter, R-La., who opposed the bill.

Some lawmakers said it hardly matters, however, because enough money and authority already are in place to do the job.

There should be "a very strong sense of urgency in this country to simply carry out the law, the mandate, for 854 miles of fence that we passed" in the 109th Congress, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., told reporters Thursday. "They've only built 13 miles of the fence so far. Let's get it built before the next hot season."

Like I said, let it die, I hope the amnesty supporters will get theirs in the next election, it would make a dam fine attack strategy to let their constituents know just WHO they're pulling for.

If "Big Ag" starts trying to pull the old "but look at the family farms" cr@p Let them know that WE know that they own most of those "family farms", and have since the '80s.
