Amnesty Bill "Alive And Well"
Bush "sure" immigration reform bill will pass, tax amnesty provision remains

President Bush has announced that he is sure that the amnesty immigration bill is going to pass when he returns from a European tour despite the Senate having voted twice within nine hours last week not to move it towards a final vote.

"I'm going to work with those who are focused on getting an immigration bill done and start taking some steps forward again. I believe we can get it done. I'll see you at the bill signing." Bush insisted.

Bush intends to personally visit to the Capitol next week to revive the plan for legalizing millions of unlawful immigrants.

The White House insisted on Sunday that the bill is not dead, despite media reports suggesting the fate of the bill is in severe doubt. Fox News even ran a piece by Bill O'Reilly which catagorically stated that the deal has "collapsed into chaos" and "gone down".

Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, who championed the legislation, insisted on CNN on Sunday however: "This bill is alive and well, and we are more determined than ever to get it through."

He then said two or three more days are needed to "wrap it up" with some commentators predicting the bill could pass before Independence Day on July 4.

One part of the bill that has also been overlooked is the fact that it not only provides total amnesty for those who have illegally entered the country and those who have employed them, but also it provides total tax amnesty for illegal aliens.

The Boston Globe reported that the Bush administration insisted on the removal of a provision in the initial version of the bill, proposed by Kennedy (D-Mass.), requiring payment of back taxes and any related fines to the Internal Revenue Service as part of the road to citizenship.

"It is important that the reformed immigration system is workable and cost efficient," spokesman Scott Stanzel said. "Determining the past tax liability would have been very difficult and costly and extremely time consuming."

Illegals applying for a green card to become a legal U.S. resident would have to pay a $5,000 fine, noted Stenzel, but it had nothing to do with taxes owed.

According to Kennedy's office, Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff had also called for the tax provision to be removed, saying it would be "too challenging to accurately determine the amount of an applicant's back taxes" because many do not receive paychecks, making an accurate audit difficult.

While Proud US citizens and New Hampshire residents Ed and Elaine Brown, who have refused to pay unlawful incomes taxes, currently have federal SWAT teams hiding in the woods around their property with armored vehicles and helicopters ready to conduct a military style raid on them, 12 million illegal aliens who have already violated the law are set to be given a total tax amnesty.

If US citizens do not pay taxes, which are unlawful anyway, an amnesty might enable them to avoid penalties and interest. However, they still have to pay any amount due in back taxes. By contrast, the immigration reform bill rewards each and every illegal alien with permanent US residence and totally erases any back payments.

The Feds can use guns, tanks, planes and drones against a peaceful, self-sustaining elderly couple who simply want to be left alone but they can't manage to protect the borders and are getting ready to grant tax amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
