    EXCERPT

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) warned Republicans to either accept the Senate's version of immigration reform - which includes amnesty for illegal aliens - or risk losing Congress to Democrats in the upcoming mid-term elections.

    Amnesty or total amnesty? The Senate version was agreed upon by the Republican majority.

    Either way, I think Kennedy has drastically misread the will of the people on this manner.

    I think this one should be on the ballot instead of being for sale on the hill...

    He's been in the total amnesty business for about 37 years.

    On one hand, illegal immigrants need to go home.

    On the other hand, I don't want to pay to get them there.

    Economically (taxes) it is cheaper to fix the problem that has caused illegal immigration than to tax me to send them home.

    Tax me to keep us free . . . and protected from terrorists.

    There is nothing noble in Kennedy's quest. He wants each and every immigrant and illegal to cast a vote or 2 at each election. That is all he wants. He could not care less as to their lives.

    We dont need to pay a dime to send them home. If we start busting employers and cut off their money supply they will go home on their own. The key to this whole thing is the employers.
