The common denominator linking the horrendous affronts embodied in the amnesty for illegal immigration and the "hate crimes" proposals, attacking the very heart of the Constitution, is found in the overwhelmingly apparent violation of the prime mandate of the Framers demanding equal justice for all. Nothing more can, or should need to, be said, in order to relegate these atrocious attempts by the liberals seeking to obliterate the original intention of the Constitution to the trashheap of humanist agendas!
Illegal Immigration and the "Hate Crimes" Bill

Senate Urged to Rethink Immigration Bill After NJ Arrests

May 09, 2007(CNSNews.com) – The arrest of six foreign-born Muslims accused of plotting to attack Fort Dix, N.J., should stop the Senate from producing an immigration bill that includes a "pathway to citizenship" or any other let-them-stay-here program, said a group that strongly opposes "amnesty" for illegal aliens.
Three of the Islamic radicals arrested in New Jersey were illegal aliens; two had green cards; and one was a U.S. citizen. Four of the suspects were born in the former Yugoslavia, one was born in Jordan and one came from Turkey, authorities said. The suspects apparently had no connection to al Qaeda.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) called the arrests "strong proof that lax enforcement of our immigration laws does pose a severe threat to the security of the nation, and that the government's screening process for granting green cards and other immigration benefits is perilously flawed."
News of the arrests came as a bipartisan group of Senators is trying to write an immigration reform bill acceptable to both sides — a task that's proving difficult to accomplish.
Many conservatives insist that such a bill must concentrate on enforcement of current immigration law as well as border security. — keeping foreigners out of the country unless they go through proper immigration channels.
Others, including President Bush and Senate Democrats, want the bill to include a guest worker program and a "pathway to citizenship" for the millions of people who have sneaked into the country illegally — and can't easily be shipped out, they say.
"Given [Tuesday's] events, the American public has a right to demand, not ask, that Congress and the Bush administration drop all talk of amnesty and guest worker programs and get to work on the single most important priority: controlling our borders and fixing an immigration system that allows terrorists and just about anyone else to enter and hide out in this country," said FAIR President Dan Stein.
"Luck was on our side this time, but luck is not a substitute for due diligence and an immigration enforcement policy that protects the nation and its people," he said.
FAIR said the arrests in New Jersey prove that terrorists can and will take advantage of "unenforced immigration policies that have flooded this country with illegal immigrants."
The arrests also show that terrorists understand the nation's vulnerabilities, FAIR said.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says the Senate will begin floor debate on an immigration bill on May 14, and if the new bill is not ready, he'll substitute the bill passed by the Senate last year. Reid insists his fellow senators have had plenty of time to produce a bill.
Slow down, Republicans say. Press reports on Wednesday quoted Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) as saying that the bipartisan working group is "close" to agreement.
"We've been close for several days," wire reports quoted him as saying. "There is not full bipartisan agreement on all of the major issues. Until we have that agreement we should not move forward.
Relative to the above article, we again point out the travesty of justice left unabated against two U.S. Border Patrol agents trying to protect our borders. Aren't loyal Americans about fed up with "politics as usual" from both parties? We have asked this same question again and again: "Where is a leader of the character and integrity of a Washington or a Lincoln?". As humans, we have all miserably failed, but we most certainly do not need to keep wallowing in the cesspool of our failures and sins. The Declaration of Independence says it very clearly:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. (emphasis added by the CftC)
Are we, the people, not entitled to protect our families ("safety and happiness") from the injustices, lies, deceits, perversions, sicknesses, injuries, crimes, and all forms of evils, whether visited on us by terrorists, homosexuals, liberal politicians, pornographers, activist judges, illegal aliens, liberal educators teaching revisionist history, or any criminal? More relevant, and more to the point, the Framers saw government as our responsibility and "duty". This is one Nation that under God is indivisible! "The light shines again in the old North Church."
the "Hate Crimes" Bill
Contrary to the liberal propaganda, there is absolutely no evidence to confirm that homosexuals or cross-dressers do not receive equal protection under the law. Looking only to the most famous Matthew Shepard "hate crime", the evidence conclusively showed that Shepard's murder was certainly not a "hate crime". This lie is widely propagated by the homosexual lobby, the liberal media, and liberal politicians, who fail to disclose the truth. In the Shepard case, the two criminals who committed the crime received life in prison for the murder which turned out to be the end result of a robbery for drug money gone bad.
Similarly, the murderer of Mary Stachowicz, a devout Catholic grandmother brutally killed by a homosexual man in Chicago for simply sharing the Bible, was also given a life sentence. The judicial system, fortunately absent the rampant, liberal judicial activism, worked in both cases, with both victims receiving equal justice under the law without any unconstitutional "hate crimes" legislation.
Based on readily confirmed statistics, there is not even any need for any such violation of the Constitution, as the left would put forth in their continual lies and deceit. Alleged "hate crimes" are not only negligible, but are on the decline. According to the latest FBI statistics, there were almost 1.4 million violent crimes in the U.S. in 2005. Of those, slightly over 1,000 were reported as "hate crimes", and well over half of those were reported to involve "intimidation," "hateful" words or pushing and shoving, with only 177 cases of aggravated assault against homosexuals nationwide. It is clearly apparent that these socially dysfunctional individuals are not targeted because of their private, constitutional expression of their perverted, sick behavior. Rather, that behavior openly shoved down the throats of a public seeking relief from their socially unacceptable public display and promotion of their sickness, react inappropriately. Perhaps, homosexual activists should be arrested for disturbing the peace. Finally, there were NO, ZERO, ZILCH "hate crimes" murders committed against homosexuals or cross-dressers in 2005.
