Barbara Boxer Shows Her True Colors

Barbara Boxer's occasional votes in the Senate on the right side of the shamnesty bill were always viewed with some suspicion. Boxer would occasionally pay lip service to concerns of American workers, but the sneaking suspicion was always that it was a show. Her true colors were exposed on Thursday, when she joined with the puppet-masters and voted yes on the cloture vote.

Frankly, I feel like a fool to have placed even the small amount of trust in her that I did.

If there is even the slightest hope that Boxer understands the situation, let this press release set things straight...

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) today issued the following statement on the immigration bill:

“The immigration problems we have in America today are not going to magically go away. We need to work to resolve these problems.

“I decided to vote yes on cloture today because I felt that if the policies in this bill were carried out properly, the result would be a strengthening of our border security, the rescue of our agriculture industry, and the acknowledgment that hardworking undocumented immigrants should have a path to legality if they follow the tough rules we have set out.

“As we move forward, I hope that the Senate will work to immediately pass the non-controversial pieces of this bill such as increased funding for border security, the AgJobs program, and the Dream Act.

“We also need to legislate a fair way to deal with the 12 million undocumented workers who have become an important part of California’s economy and the economy of the country.”
