Amnesty for Illegal Aliens Coming Up in Lame Duck Senate?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
According to the Washington Times, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has promised to bring up the Dream Act during the lame duck session of the Senate when Congress reconvenes after the election.
“The Dream Act would grant legal status and a path to citizenship to illegal immigrant schoolchildren and to illegal immigrants who agree to serve in the U.S. military.” (SOURCE)
In the article by Stephen Dinan entitled: “Reid promises vote on aliens” the Washington Times says the following: “Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid over the weekend promised to force the Senate to vote on an immigration bill, the Dream Act, in a lame-duck session of Congress this month. The article goes on to quote Reid as saying: “I just need a handful of Republicans. I would settle for two or three Republicans to join with me on the Dream Act and comprehensive immigration reform, but they have not been willing to step forward. They want to keep talking about this issue, and I say [it] is demagoguery in its worst fashion and is unfair to the Hispanic community."

This, dear reader, is just one of the things worrying me about this upcoming lame duck session of Congress.
If the election goes as expected, there will be a host of PO’ed Democrats prowling the halls of Congress looking for one last victory over their victorious conservative opposition. If Reid, as the Senate Majority Leader losses his seat in the Senate, he will be as dangerous as a wounded wolf.
Over the next few weeks we will have to be even more observant of Congress than we have since January of 2007. As we have often been reminded: Out of power, liberals are funny. In power – they are dangerous.
I made a mental note of anything that would raise my taxes. I ALWAYS vote against a tax increase in any form. This election is no exception.
