He read the story about the INS cracking down on illegal immigrants working in Nebraska Meat Packing plants. They managed to identify 4000 and forced the companies to fire them. An owner of one of the larger plants called his congressman and complained, and the congressman was able to force the INS chief to resign. The congressman asked the head of INS to quietly resign because of the issue, and that person did. Intevention by congressmen, according to the story Rush read, appears to have happenned a number of times. Congress is force folks to violate the laws that congress itself passed.

Sickening.

Every one of those worthless Washington politicians should be voted out of office for failing to enforce our laws, which has led to 12 million illegals and an annual $60 billion expense to the taxpayers.

Minor hijack, but I just heard on the radio that if someone (generally many someones) uses your SSAN to get a job, Social Security will not inform or notify you. These eftards go merrily along ruining your credit, SS account, and it's Aok with .gov. Hey you're just a cow to be milked.

After a little Googling, it looks like it happened in 1998. Search for "operation vanguard".

BEN NELSON:
Immigration Hardliner? Or Lobbyist for Meatpackers?
NEGOP Questions Democrat Ben Nelson’s Immigration Flip-Flop
***


Lincoln, Neb. – The Nebraska GOP called on Democrat Senator Ben Nelson today to come clean on his apparent flip-flop on federal immigration policy. Nelson announced plans to introduce legislation addressing illegal immigration.

In 1999, former Governor and soon to be candidate for United States Senate Ben Nelson acted as a lobbyist for the meatpacking industry in a dispute with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). INS was subpoenaing employee records at meatpacking plants across the state, investigating document discrepancies.
“Former Gov. Ben Nelson says the crackdown on undocumented workers in Nebraska meatpacking plants is detrimental to Nebraska.” (Nelson critical of Operation Vanguard, Calls it Detrimental; Grand Island Independent; Thursday, June 3, 1999)

Nelson said he thinks the INS should start a separate program that would allow temporary visas for undocumented workers. (Associated Press, “Nelson says INS operation draining state’s labor pool”; 6/4/99)

[Nelson] said he has been approached by several meatpacking companies, asking for his help in developing a pilot program that would make temporary visas available to undocumented employees. “We need to find more ways to employ people rather than limit them,” Nelson said. (The Grand Island Independent, 6/3/99).

“The issue in this instance is consistency and leadership. In 1999, the year before his Senate race, Ben Nelson lobbied for meatpackers – advocating for programs to permit the importation of foreign workers into permanent US jobs. In 2005, the year before his Senate race, Ben Nelson feigns concern about border security,” said Executive Director Jessica Moenning. “Ben Nelson changes what he thinks from one term to the next based on who he’s lobbying for or what a poll says - that is NOT leadership.”

“Nebraska needs a leader who will say what he means and mean what he says, not someone who changes his position if a focus group says so. Ben Nelson owes the voters of Nebraska an explanation for his flip-flop.”

No surprise there. Washington works for them, knowing they have already our vote(mostly). Time to get everyone voting 3rd party. And when the R/D parties put on a new face for the following election, remember who they really are and vote 3rd party again.
