Senate to resume trying to pass illegal alien amnesty
The AP reports that the Senate will spend the next two weeks trying to pass their massive illegal alien amnesty bill.
About 99% of the time this site takes issue with the AP's biased reportage, but this is not one of those times:
...Senate Democrats have expressed fears that protections for illegal immigrants will be sacrificed in the negotiations... Reid has insisted that once the bill is passed, those who support protecting illegal immigrants from deportation must control the Senate team that will negotiate with the House in conference in developing a final bill.
Reid and the other Senate Democrats are not trying to protect the legal rights of those illegal aliens. They're explicitly trying to give those illegal aliens rights to which they aren't entitled. They're explicitly trying to "protect" illegal aliens from deportation.
At its highest levels the Democratic Party fully supports illegal immigration. They are willing to give more weight to the demands of foreign citizens than to the demands of those they claim to represent.
