This Boehner Attempt to Smuggle Scamnesty Into His Bill Irritates Me a Bit
Bill Quick

Hat tip: Mark Levin Show 7/31/14:

Mark points out several instances of scamnesty smuggled into the Boehner bill that crashed and burned today: Here’s an example from near the bottom of page 18:

‘‘(6) CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO AP14
PEAR.—Any alien who fails to appear at a pro15
ceeding required under this section, shall be ordered
16 removed in absentia if the Government establishes
17 by a preponderance of the evidence that the alien
18 was at fault for their absence from the proceedings.

Get it?  What this says, once you translate the conglaw speak is that any alien who fails to appear at (a deportation hearing) shall be removed (deported) in absentia IF (this is the scamnesty part) the government is able to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that it was the alien’s fault for not appearing at the hearing.

How in the hell can the government establish that?  Short answer, it can’t.  So any alien who fails to show up at a deportation hearing automatically won’t be deported.

And people wonder why conservatives don’t trust the lying, ball-licking, boodle-bagging, cock-puppets of the Gentry GOP RINOsaurs on the scamnesty issue.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
