Former amnesty proponents Senators John McCain and Jon Kyle silent on new amnesty push.


Effeminate GOP Senator Lindsey Graham is writing a new amnesty bill with radical far-left Senator Charles Schumer from New York. Schumer has taken the place of Ted Kennedy, who was the lead Democrat in the last amnesty push. However, Graham is now at a loss to find fellow GOP amnesty pushers.

Last time around GOP Senators John McCain, Jon Kyle, and Richard Luger joined with Graham in pushing amnesty. Both are silent now, for fear of doing more damage to their careers. Two other pro-amnesty GOP senators retired and a third switched to the democrat party.

From Washington Times…

Most Republicans considered likeliest to join Sens. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, and Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, in writing a bill either have taken a pass or are still on the fence. Key figures say the country does not have the kind of consensus needed to tackle the issue.

“It just doesn’t exist anymore,” said Sen. Jon Kyl, the Arizona Republican who in 2007 took the lead on writing a bill with Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, only to see it fail when a bipartisan majority of senators joined a filibuster against it.

Mr. Schumer and Mr. Graham are guardedly pressing ahead with a bill that would legalize illegal immigrants, establish a new system for allowing in foreign workers, and tighten controls on employment, including requiring the use of biometric identification Social Security cards.

Mr. Schumer sees a path for a bill, Mr. Graham sounds uncertain, and both of them are looking to Mr. Obama to help.

“I urge the president to write a bill and see if he can get another Republican, see if he can convince the 16 Democrats who voted no the last time,” Mr. Graham said on a “Meet the Press” appearance with Mr. Schumer late last month. “Let him do some heavy lifting here on immigration.”
