I've got 24 Senators that need to go away...For a long time

In a stunning decision, the California State Senate endorsed the May 1st planned boycott of schools, jobs and stores by illegal immigrants. They also approved to refer to this boycott (officially) as the Great American Boycott 2006.

The vote went straight down party lines 24-13. The Democrats reasons for the bill were largely based on emotion (as normal) and largely had nothing to do with reason

During the debate the following arguments/stories were relayed
Sen. Nell Soto, D-Pomona, recalled watching as a child as immigration police swept up brown-skinned farmworkers, "not even asking if they were illegal or illegal."


Sen. Martha Escutia, D-Norwalk, described how her grandfather remained in the country illegally after overstaying a work permit during the 1940s, when he picked fruits and vegetables while American men were fighting World War II.


I have several problems with this bill.

1) Any public official that actively encourage children to skip school needs to be removed from office
2) Why is any body of government endorsing illegal immigration? Last time I checked, crossing the border illegally was a felony, has that changed?

You obviously want to forget the illegal immigrants of 1492. Doesn't suit you much to talk about them.

To say this is based off emotion and lacks reason proves that you only care to reason things that matter to you. Typical Republican. But when there were Republicans fighting for the right to pray in schools, despite a seperation of church state clause, they weren't being unreasonable were they?

I can name some senators who need to go: Lieberman for one. He is dead weight and in bed with the criminal side of congress. Sessions. A bumbling inbred with nothing good to offer but a nose up W's ass. You get the gyst, and this year will not be pretty for the Republicans in congress.

I must say, I enjoy reading the METAL pundit, but this guy OGLILATH always spews the most retarded, red-state propoganda. I vote you cancel this guy's membership.

Crall -

And what nation did they illegally immigrate to? I fyou want to be ridiculous about this, I'll go one better. What about the illegal immigrants who went to Europe 10K years ago? Or those fucknuts that crossed the Alaskan Landbridge illegally?

Show me one reason given by the California Senate for encouraging kids to skip school that is not based on pure emotion and I'll be willing to reconsider my position.

What does prayer in school have to do with a state Senate encouraging children to skip school?

Neither of the people you named are in the California Senate, please try to stay within the scope of the topic

How... democratic of you... All differing opinions must be silenced, or at least segregated, hmm?
