The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a bill that if enacted could make it a felony to assist an undocumented immigrant, even if such assistance might save their life. Called H.R. 4437, the bill could also have other consequences for the even legal immigrants. This bill will deny legal rights and due process to millions. It has many unjust and terribly punative provisions, detailed below:
· The bill makes undocumented status a felony. Even minor immigration violations such as accidentally filling out an immigration form improperly could result in an immigrant being classified as a felon. It would permanently bar all undocumented immigrants who are currently in the U.S. from ever being able to apply for citizenship, including 1.6 million children. (more below the fold)

What is truth? In January of 1999, several United States Senators outdid themselves in calling for `truth' `honesty' and `integrity in the oval office. Anything less would confuse our children and destroy our society.
Here is my second diary from researching the Congressional Records, I have pointed out statements that are so powerful they still reverberate today. As with my first diary, I did not take their statements out of context, or play with quotes to change their meaning.
