GOP Sen. Vitter Takes Last Ditch Aim at Census to Exclude Illegal Immigrants

October 14, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Republican lawmakers have engaged in hysterical attacks on the upcoming 2010 U.S. Census count in recent months. Now, disgraced Sen. David Vitter, (R-La) and Sen. Bob Bennett (R-UT) are sponsoring a controversial amendment to exclude illegal immigrants from the Census count.

Sen. Vitter, the family values politician, who was forced to acknowledge his involvement with the D.C. Madam illegal postitution ring, when his telephone number appeared on a client list two years ago, has somehow been able to keep his job as a lawmaker. He has also been linked to a high-priced brothel in New Orleans.

Vitter’s amendment would require Census workers to ask people, for the first time, whether they are citizens and exclude those illegal citizens from the population count used to allocate congressional seats. “Illegal aliens should not be included for the purposes of determining representation in Congress, and that’s the bottom line here,” says Vitter.

If the amendment is enacted, it would withhold funding for the 2010 Census until the changes are made. The amendment is due for a vote in the Senate on Wednesday and is not expected to pass.

There are several problems with Vitter’s proposed amendment. The proposal comes less than six months before the U.S. Census Bureau is poised to mail out the questionnaires to 135 million households. And about 425 million forms have already been printed in various languages.

Additionally, people are already distrustful of the intrusiveness of the government census; a fear which has been further stoked by conservatives. And it’s unlikely a person in the country illegally would volunteer that information. Such a question would only serve to undermine the entire Census count.

The Census Bureau has asked in different surveys whether people are native-born or foreign-born, but the bureau never asked about legal status.

Arturo Vargas, executive director of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, opposes Vitter’s amendment.

“Asking about citizenship status “would raise more questions in the public mind about how confidential the Census is,” Vargas says.

    Soon America is going to be confronted with another out-of-control AMNESTY for the 20 to 30 million illegal aliens already here. This is not taking into account the millions who will follow on, once the word gets out through Central and South America and the rest of the world. Only the armed National Guard on our lax border will be able to stop the incursion of the destitute, the sick, drug dealers, slavers, foreign terrorists and a multitude other entering this country illegally. The church, unions, the Communist ACLU, US Chamber of Commerce, Council of Foreign Relations and radical, International groups all have their agendas. These Anti-sovereignty organizations must embrace there corrupted puppet politicians, that ostensibly wants to make this cataclysm come true?

    The driving force now behind this contradiction to his oath of Allegiance to American people is Rep.Luis Gutierrez’s of Illinois, whose immigration enforcement since being in office is a (F-) grading according to NUMBERSUSA. The American Workers—MUST– condemn this Immigration reform action by complaining to their indifferent Liberal Democrats and some Republicans at 202-224-3121. Don’t let the aides reject you offhand as you want your representative to know? Currently 15 million US workers with the most sitting at home, sending out references, walking the streets and looking for work. Then this joker Luis Gutierrez is pushing for a second Amnesty? What are these politicians thinking, or do they think at all? My hope the taxpayers show him the door—ALL OF THEM–when he/she wants to be re-elected.

    Gutierrez is just one of many who have blemished their own records of their loyalty to the American people? I just know that the last AMNESTY was an absolute failure, owing to the fraud that transpired. I think the majority of the US population knows that the majority of our politicians in every administration had no true intentions of ever securing the border, or enforcing any immigration law. This has been proven over and over again, with Senators like Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Janet Napolitano that have all genuflected to the demands of businesses big and small. It seems for decades that it’s been mandatory that we must support the world’s poor? The evidence has irrefutable shown that their disregard for US labor in Obama’s stimulus bill, the potential health care reform and whatever deviant law, they place in the Senate and House to support the illegal immigrants and families once they break into America? WE welcome a millions or more legal immigrants each year? Even police departments are reprimanded as Arizona Sheriff Joe Araipo, who is carry out duties, our government seems to cold-shoulder.

    INSTEAD OF JUST A CIVIL INFRACTION, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTION SHOULD BE PENALISED AS A FELONY? THAT’S WHY THEY KEEP ON COMING? We should demand of those who represent us that E-Verify should be implemented immediately as mandatory, with no exemptions. Everybody in the workplace Must be verified. No more voluntary E-Verify? Every police department should be trained to apprehend and question any individual they see fit to check? No more of this Liberal Socialist political correctness garbage on racial profiling? We should have a federal force to audit I-9’s, with the defiant ones going to prison. ICE should have larger funding with more interior and border agents, to sweep down on illegal business activities. Identify for yourself those politicians who are involved in corruption at JUDICIAL WATCH site. Our nation is silently being dismantled by the globalists and those who wave the banner for them.

    Small states will miss out big time on federal dollars in the 2010 Census, while mass illegal immigrant states will gain more seats in Congress and too much power and influence in general elections? California specifically, because of the handicapped zombie Liberal Democrats In Sacramento, who should be thrown out of office into a garbage dump, owing to the billions they used underwriting the illegal alien population. They caused the financial crisis in the once-Golden state, by ignoring the millions of illegal aliens, gang bangers bleeding San Fran and Los Angeles dry of revenue. Of course ICE could check the immigration status of those who are counted, even though it’s supposedly against US law? Or is counting 20 million plus (?) non-legal residence against the US Constitution? But then these politicians do not recognize what is illegal from illegal anymore?

    Don’t let sympathy cloud your mind to our own countries deterioration, the infrastructure and uncorrectable overpopulation. Each year our State and federal taxes go ever higher, to pay for the illegal immigrants, their emergency care, education, their extended circle of relatives that enter under family reunification. THE TAXPAYER HAS BECOME THE BREADWINNERS ILLEGAL ALIENS IN THIS COUNTRY AND THE WORLD. IT MUST STOP!
