Lamar Alexander defends vote for Amnesty citing we have “perpetual Amnesty” already
As hoardes of illegal immigrants stream into the United States, Americans are being put at risk of danger as Lamar Alexander continues to support Amnesty as the answer to our illegal immigrant woes.
US Senator Lamar Alexanders vote for Amnesty, supporting the gang of Eight, Chuck Shumer and John McCain is clearly not in line with how the majority feels on this issue in Tennessee.
Sure, Alexander can shrug this off easily from his office in DC. it’s real easy to see the disconnect from his constituency as parts of TN readies for an onslaught of illegals resettling to mainly Nashville and Bristol.
Alexanders votes for amnesty is taking away our jobs and using our tax dollars to disseminate illegal immigrants into our state and across the nation.
It has been reported that Alexander supported the Amnesty bill because in his liberal mind, he believes it’s already here, so I guess it’s ok for them to continue to break the law?
According to Brietbart.com “We have amnesty today,” Alexander said. “Turning your head while 11 million people are already here illegally is perpetual amnesty. I voted along with 67 other United States senators to end perpetual amnesty.”
Alexander voted with 14 other Republican Senators in favor of the “Gang of Eight,” immigration bill led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)”
This bill to citizenry for an estimated 11 million is a huge mistake and sets a dangerous precedence that laws do not matter as long as politicians vote opposite of the law.
TN US Senate Candidate Joe Carr has been a staunch critic of Liberal Lamars amnesty views and has led the charge to expose the Alexander campaign of these issues as well as his vote for Obamacare.
In a statement to Brietbart.com he had this to say about Lamar Alexander, “There’s this arrogance about these people who stay in Washington,” Carr said, referring to the border crisis and the immigration reform debate. “The arrogance that they say – you know what, it doesn’t matter that they are flooding our labor markets with unskilled labor and driving down American wages, it doesn’t matter as long as we cater to the United States Chamber of Commerce.”
“Alexander insisted that the bill he voted for identifies illegal immigrants and requires them to pay a penalty, payment of back taxes and required them to work.”
Lamar Alexander seeing illegal immigrants as a way to expand our tax base, provide amnesty for millions, take away jobs for Americans and pay penalties for breaking the law is the mind of a man that is not thinking logically and is worlds apart from the conservative base that has supported him in past races.
A trick of Alexanders and many lifetime politicians is to vote for a bill on cloture, or bring it up for a vote and move the bill forward, then vote against it so he can tell his constituency that he didn’t vote for it, when in fact he did.
As Brietbart reported, Lamar Alexander, in this case, voted to advance debate on the bill — in the initial cloture vote to begin consideration that passed 82-15 — before the border security amendment was introduced.
This is sneaky and underhanded and gives we the people the opportunity to say enough is enough Lamar!
If you remember, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his primary race in Virginia based on this same premise and for his support of amnesty when many voiced they did not want it. This move refueled the Tea Party base in Virginia and acrosst the nation as a defeat of liberal Lamar Alexander will do the same for Tennessee.
Brietbart states further that “Carr signed the FAIR pledge live on conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham’s radio program, and challenged Alexander to do the same.”
“The pledge asks candidates to vow to oppose amnesty, increases in legal immigration, and increases in the number of guest workers.”
“But Alexander defended the bill as one that would encourage jobs and economic growth in the United States by allowing “talented people and essential workers” to come to the United States legally.”
“I chose to secure the border, end perpetual amnesty and encourage jobs, rather than do nothing,” he said.
Despite his support Presidents idea of illegal immigration reform and amnesty, in the last 24 hours, he has called for sending TN National Guard troops to the Mexican border to stop the flow of illegals into this country.
Hello McFly? Alexander? A little late! A resettlement package has already been sent to TN and they are now on their way to Tennessee.
It’s time for a change! We need real leadership in Tennessee.
Get out and vote! Otherwise, it will not matter and things will stay the same.
The alternative is Joe Carr for US Senate, Tennessee.
