Amnesty by Any Other Name
- A provision requiring payment of back taxes had been in the initial version of a bill proposed by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat. But the administration called for the provision to be removed due to concern that it would be too difficult to figure out which illegal immigrants owed back taxes…
Michael Chertoff - Bush's head of the Department of Homeland Security - says it'd be too difficult to keep track of who owes what back taxes. And this is the Department in charge of making sure 10 million illegals go back to their own country for a year before returning for a visa. And it gets better according to the HotAir site:
- The real reason they stripped it is because they know illegals wouldn’t comply with it, just like many of them aren’t going to comply by paying the $5,000 penalty. Which is why that’ll end up being stripped too.
The Administration is signaling it's complicity in this joke of a bill.
