>Calls needed Monday, May 21 against motion to proceed to
>anti-English amnesty bill
>The Senate's amnesty bill is worse than you
>Amnesty immediately. English maybe. Lots of PC
> Please forgive me for writing to you on a Saturday night.
>I have just finished reading the draft text of the immigration bill
>that will be renumbered S.1348 on May 21st (about 36 hours from now.)
>Let me share with you some of the things I've discovered hiding in
>this bad bill:
>(1) The English requirements are few and easily evaded:
>Section 702 Declaration of English
>(a) English is the common language of the United States.
>(b) Preserving and Enhancing the Role of the English Language. The
>Government of the United States shall preserve and enhance the role
>of English as the language of the United States of America. Nothing
>herein shall diminish or expand any existing rights under the laws
>of the United States relative to services or materials provided by
>the Government of the United States in any language other than English.
>(c) Definition: For the purposes of this section, law is defined as
>including provisions of the United States Constitution, the United
>States Code, controlling judicial decisions, regulations, and
>Presidential Executive Orders.
>Section 702 pretends to protect English but actually mandates
>multilingualism. A more concise version would read, "English is OK
>unless the government decides otherwise."
>(2) We are to pay at least $5 million to every state, as well as
>"the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the
>Virgin Islands,Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the
>Northern 20 Mariana Islands" to "provide health services,
>educational services, and related services to non-citizens."
>(3) We will conduct "an evaluation of language and cultural
>diversity training programs" which are part of "the basic training
>curriculum provided to new Border Patrol agents."
>(4) We are to combat human smuggling but "Nothing in this section
>may be construed to provide additional authority to any State or
>local entity to enforce Federal immigration laws."
>All we need are 41 votes on Monday afternoon "against the motion to
>proceed" to kill this legislative turkey.
>Please contact your two Senators right away.
>Jim Boulet, Jr.
