Democrats Filibuster for Felons

In another of many “what is wrong with these guys” moments, the Senate Democrats have filibustered an amendment to the immigration bill that would bar felons from gaining citizenship. Beyond their refusal to allow a vote on a critical point of a major piece of legislation; one has to wonder why the Democrats have decided to rally around felons. Minority Leader, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) has stated that the amendment would take away from what he said “is the goodness of this bill.” Let me get this straight Mr. Reid, the “goodness” of this piece of legislation is to empower felons? The Washington Times covered this bizarre filibuster here. Lost in this debate is Mexico itself; the country cannot employ its population because its economy is a failure.
