This is just another way of saying that this is revenue neutral, that these people coming, in, that whatever it is that we have to or we must do for them is not costing the American sheeple any money. That’s all it says. So Article I, Section 9 still applies.
Say there are some of you naysayers out there, [mocking] “Well, you could read it the other way, too.” Okay, fine. Let’s just say I agree with you for a moment, and I don’t. This is an act of Congress from 1882. No Congress can bind another. If you want to change this, have a simple yes or no vote, up or down, and change the statute.
It’s not that hard. You have a simple resolution that says Congress is amending statute from 1882, give the chapter and verse of the act. We’re amending paragraph 4, subsection 3, sentence 2. It says this and we are amending it to say this. It’s as simple as that. Vote on it, up or down, bam, whammo, kablowee. They don’t have to do that. These Republicans out there saying “we have to abide,” isn’t that funny? They want to abide a law in 1882 but they don’t want to abide a law of 1789.
