Darth Vader: Good. You are proving that the Dark Side of the Force is too good that the Rebels cannot resist.
Darth Issa: They will join us...
Darth Vader: ...Or die.
Representative Darrell Issa (CA-49, which includes Fallbrook and a portion of Southern Riverside County), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, today announced the reintroduction of three immigration reform bills to improve American competitiveness, encourage those who enter the U.S. legally to stay, and impose criminal sentencing for those who enter the country after having been removed.Now I'm sure what Darrell Issa is doing is reasonable. It certainly makes sense to deal with immigration in a more serious matter rather than the divisive manner which the Republican Party is handling immigration reform. For this, I commend Issa.
"We must take a balanced and practical approach to immigration," said Rep. Issa on the introduction of the three bills. "This includes making our country more accessible to those who can fill critical needs and also stiffening penalties for those who continue to violate our laws. From high-tech entrepreneurs to those who fight in our armed services, these reforms offer new benefits and securities that must go hand in hand with tougher enforcement."
But I am also not a dumbass. I'm not naive enough to be seduced by the Dark Side of the Force:
Yes, government shouldn't spend more than it does. Thanks for the heads up! Where were you in 2002-2008?
Probably because the GOP is conning the constituents into thinking it really is "fiscally conservative."
Ok Darth Issa. That's where you come in. You and your colleagues are divisive and you know it, right? GOOD.
See, this is why not enough voters in California's 49th Congressional District knew about Jerry Tetalman, who ran against Darrell Issa in the 49th Congressional race in 2012. Tetalman ran on a very pro-environment platform and actually recognized the efforts that were being made in San Diego to promote green jobs.
Where's Issa on the green jobs? Um, NOWHERE!
Keep talking Sr. Issa, keep talking.
Earth to Issa! The economy IS growing! Now you and your fellow "Republicans" need to stop being roadblocks in the process!
Once again, let's let Henry Waxman do the talking:
