Immigration bill dead; Mississippi senator upset

Our own Senator Trent Lott was a staunch supporter of the Democratic Party (Ted Kennedy) and White House-backed immigration reform bill, a measure which has been apparently killed tonight by the failure of the vote to limit debate on the bill (and thus ensure its passage). Members of both parties indicated pressure from the public had been key in its defeat. Though this is a national issue, the effect of this bill’s passage would have been keenly felt in our own town of Vicksburg. How do you feel about Senator Lott’s backing of the immigration reform bill?

  1. I have always been a strong backer of both Senator Cochran and Senator Lott. However, Senator Lott’s support of the immigration reform bill, and Senator Cochran’s amendment to the FDA reform bill that handed big drug companies a huge victory at the expense of the American people, have given me reason to question whether I will feel the same next election (though I don’t think I could ever vote for a liberal Democrat). If similar sentiment is prevalent among Mississippians and within the minds of people in other states, then 2008 may be the year that third party candidates finally come to the fore.

  2. Your are right on Malcolm…Now Lott says “talk radio should be stopped”…Our Washington leaders will do “anything” to keep power…That is what’s puzzeling about this latest statement…I would think his base would love talk radio…start trading your dollars for pesos…chw

  3. Lott’s actions are really strange, CH. I’ve wondered if he’s being blackmailed, or if someone’s holding his family hostage. At any rate, he’s commiting political suicide by pushing the immigration bill and decrying talk radio. I’ve been trying to call his Washington office to express my opposition to the bill, but all I get are busy signals.

  4. The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It’s time for a paradigm change.

    Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism, and without threatening U.S. sovereignty or basic principles.
