2006: George Will supports amnesty, guest workers; misleads with false choice; "unlimited" skilled immigration - 07/03/11

... what end? The goal of the bill (HR4437) was attrition: encouraging illegal aliens to leave of their own accord over time. Will couldn't even bring himself to seek out, understand, and acknowledge the goal of that bill.

2006: Grover Norquist supported amnesty with U.S. CofC, far-left ACLU, NCLR, SEIU, NIF, USCCB, AFL-CIO - 04/09/09

... specifically in opposition to HR4437. The brightest lights in the amnesty firmament showed up, all in support of amnesty. I saw video of the event on CSPAN (IIRC) at the time, and it would be great if someone could see if it's available somewhere. A transcript is here. One of those sitting next to a series of far-lefties and nodding right along was Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform....

Darryl Fears: the Democratic line on immigration - 11/20/06

... addressed. And, needless to say, HR4437 wasn't "strident". Then, he quotes "Simon Rosenberg, president of NDN, formerly the New Democrat Network" as saying that the "Republican Party is hostile to Hispanics". Obviously, he's biased. And, just as obviously, that's false. Not even those GOP leaders that support our immigration laws are hostile to one ethnic group. They just oppose, for instance,...

Banks worried about being called felons just because they may have aided and abetted illegal aliens - 05/09/06

... about being named as felons if HR4437 passes. As discussed below [1], if a bank knows that someone is here illegally, and then gives them a home loan that allows them to stay here illegally, hasn't that bank committed a felony under current law? For reasons that I completely, absolutely cannot understand, Yerak didn't look into that side of things. She didn't, for instance, ask legal...

Illegal immigration supporters split over May 1 boycott - 04/20/06

... Mexican-Americans. And, the assertion that HR4437 would "criminalize... those who help [illegal immigrants]" is not entirely accurate: that help would need to be provided knowingly or recklessly. The WaPo offers a similar report in "Fearing Backlash, Some Immigration Activists Aren't Backing Boycott" by Darryl Fears. Those apparently in the National Capital Immigration Coalition include: * Casa...

Cardinal Roger Mahony admits to exaggerating about HR4437 - 04/13/06

In an interview with a Catholic newspaper Cardinal Roger Mahony as much as admitted that he's been misrepresenting HR 4437: [interviewer:] Giving a sandwich to a hungry man could theoretically be a criminal act. [Mahoney:] Absolutely. Let me just give a couple of examples that are so absurd, people just say, "What?" The one I used was, since we have undocumented people who come to our...

Illegal aliens march in Chicago, get support from Blago, Gutierrez, local media - 03/10/06

... Gutierrez isn't telling the truth: HR4437 would not "make it illegal to assist any undocumented immigrant". It's a bit odd that she's not telling the truth in the same was that Romo isn't telling the truth, isn't it? Her report also has a MMP project quote and also doesn't look into the truth about the marchers. Meanwhile, from the American side, comes blog reports like "Vignettes From The...

Illegal aliens, supporters to protest in Washington - 03/01/06

Illegal aliens and their supporters are agitating for more rights inside our country, and thousands will be visiting Washington DC in March. Thousands of pro-immigration advocates will protest next week at the U.S. Capitol against a bill that they fear would result in fines or jail time for operators of businesses, churches, day-laborer centers and other facilities that help illegal aliens....

CASA of Maryland worried Sensenbrenner bill will shut their day laborer centers - 01/04/06

In case you had any doubts about HR 4437, this might slightly allay them: Kim Propeack, spokeswoman for CASA of Maryland Inc., said her group's day-laborer centers "and other worker centers would in a large part be forced to shut down" if a bill offered by U.S. Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. becomes law... ..."The majority of workers that use CASA centers are documented, but we will not...
