Illegal Immigrants flooded the phones of Pro-Amnesty groups with calls of concern, disappointment and fear:
Phone calls flooded advocacy groups across the state yesterday as distraught illegal immigrants tried to come to terms with the implications of yesterday’s failure in the Senate of a bill that would have legalized some 12 million unlawful immigrants.
Some immigrant groups vowed to redouble efforts to lobby for immigration reform with protests and rallies. But with most observers saying that the prospects for another vote on the measure are effectively doomed this year, many who live in the netherworld of illegal status had to confront a cold reality that after having their hopes raised, they were plunged again into uncertainty.
Hey, how about wiretapping those phones and getting a lead on these illegal immigrants making the call. Other’s applauded the outcome:
Meanwhile, opponents of the bill applauded. Steve Kropper, cochairman of Massachusetts Citizens for Immigration Reform, said the bill’s plan to allow for the legalization of 12 million unlawful immigrants would have eroded wages for poor workers in Massachusetts.
“If you live in Boston and you clean hotel rooms or you’re a nurse in a hospital or a worker in food preparation, the death of this bill means you have a better chance to own a house, drive a car, or afford health insurance,” he said.
Maybe these people will be scared enough to go back to where they came from and try it again .. LEGALLY this time.-- 'The Commish' A.J. Sparxx
