White House Amnesty Strategery

Someone from the White House leaked their strategy of how they want to pass their "immigration reform" bill yesterday. I read about it in the Denver Post and then listened to it on John & Ken. This is going to be a titanic struggle between the open border establishment Republicans and most of our conservative base. The Democrats are basically irrelevant because they will vote in lock step for amnesty. The only hope is for 218 Republicans to stand up and be counted to vote against the final bill.

This is all going to play out starting next week with the House passing an enforcement only bill. This gives the White House and David Dreiers/Jerry Lewis/John Campbells of the party time to crow about having passed a tough enforcement bill on immigration. After a few months the Senate will then pass the McCain Kennedy amnesty immigration bill. The two bodies will then go to a conference committee so the two bills can be put together into one. What do you think is going to come out of conference? That's right.....a guest worker amnesty bill. Duh. Our only hope to stop this sell out/monstrosity is to recommit the bill to conference and/or vote against final passage. I already have a list of the local GOP reps who are sure bets to sell us out. They are:

David Dreier
Mary Bono
Jerry Lewis
John Campbell
