Barack Obama (part 7)

I will not be continuing my Creationism posts today. I do plan to return to them soon.

Then, I plan to answer the response about Iraq. I am sorry for the change in plans. Plans, in reality, often are altered for one reason or another. “The best laid plans … often go astray.” Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

I began my first two posts of this series with the following comments: “The following article is from World magazine which is the only weekly magazine that I read regularly. Because of the work I had been doing for my clients, I have fallen behind (once again) on my reading. I had just finished reading this article the other day. I was going to do material on Mr. Obama and after reading the article decided this was a good time to do just that. The two previous posts—Seven things GOD hates and MURDER on a MASSIVE SCALE—were preludes to this series.

I had planned on tonight’s post being the last one at this time on Barack Obama. I was planning on dealing with a couple of issues and his position on those issues. I’m changing direction somewhat. The Peoria Journal Star regularly prints on Sunday a small segment that is titled “Roll Call Report” by Thomas Voting Reports. The first paragraph reads: “Washington, D.C.—Here’s how area members of Congress voted on major roll calls in the week ending Friday.” (Peoria Journal Star, 10/28/07, page A8) The newspaper is referring, of course, to Illinois for the Senate.

The article listed three major roll call votes for the Senate for that week. As identified in the article, they were “Illegal Aliens’ Children,” “Amtrak Subsidy Caps,” and “Domestic Spending Showdown.” Senator Barack Obama is identified as “Not voting” on two of the three issues. He did vote on one issue—he voted on “Illegal Aliens’ Children.”

This is what the article said about that issue: “Illegal Aliens’ Children: Voting 52 for and 44 against, the Senate on Wednesday failed to reach 60 votes needed to advance a bill (S 2205) putting children of illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship if they first serve in the U.S. military or complete two years of higher education. The path would be available to high school graduates without criminal records who have lived in the U.S. for at least five years and entered before age 16. They would have to wait six years to apply for citizenship after meeting the educational or military requirement. The bill is named the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or DREAM Act.

Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., said, ‘The DREAM Act would make it possible to bring these young people out of shadows and give them the opportunity to contribute, work and pay taxes. (It) is not amnesty. It is a narrowly tailored piece of legislation that would help only a limited, select group of young people earn legal status.’

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said, ‘I do not believe we should reward illegal behavior. It is our duty to promote respect for America’s immigration laws and fairness for U.S. citizens and lawful immigrants. The DREAM Act fails that test.’

A yes vote was to advance the bill.

Voting yes: Richard Durbin, D; Barack Obama, D.”

It is not surprising that Senator Obama voted for this bill. He has publicly supported a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. I don’t know the details of this bill since the article gives, at best, a short summary of a bill that is probably a hundred or more pages long. What is misleading from the information given is the title of the bill. It is not a bill to provide a means to citizenship for aliens. It is a bill to provide a means to citizenship for illegal immigrants who are brought into this country by either illegal immigrant parents or other illegal immigrants or who came to this country on their own although under the age of sixteen.

I’ve said many times, Congress, including Senator Obama, should NOT reward illegal immigrants or their children with citizenship ahead of others who are following our laws to obtain admittance into our country and perhaps ultimately obtain citizenship. It is INSANITY to reward illegal actions!!!
