California Democrat Senator Boxer is no stranger to controversy. This year alone she was exposed for accepting illegal campaign contributions from a Pakistani fugitive on the FBI’s most wanted list, unethically using her position as chair of a powerful Senate committee to raise money for her reelection campaign and introducing legislation to put 1.5 million illegal immigrant farm workers and their relatives on a path to United States citizenship by granting them immediate legal residency.
Boxer’s amendment goes on to say that Homeland Security officials have publicly stated that they will not even consider scaling back efforts to aggressively enforce federal immigration laws during the 2010 census. Therefore she felt it necessary to sneak the amendment into an unrelated spending bill.
Boxer’s amendment specifically calls on the Customs and Enforcement Bureau of the Department of Homeland Security to limit aggressive enforcement of federal immigration laws to promote full participation of non citizens in the census.
Boxer stated "as a member of the U.S. Senate. I am proud to serve the people of the State of California and all Americans." Is she kidding or what? Now there's a lie if we ever saw one, all Americans. She's attempting to trump our Homeland Security by sneaking in an amendment of cease action on raids to an unrelated spending bill, to serve whom again?
