This is CRAP!!! There is no difference between this and allowing bank robbers to keep the money after their caught!! We have laws and these people and politicians are allowing people who have broken our laws to reap the benefits of their actions!
maybe this is all Obama's plan for illegal immigration reform.
He crushes the economy and any will to achieve meanwhile devaluing the dollar. The country will be in such a state of disrepair that no one will want to come here anymore. Then he can tout off about solving the immigration problem and blame the right for the economy. And all the useful idiots will buy it.
obama and the left will only secure our borders in order to force American citizens to stay in America to pay for all the welfare, health care and goodies of obama's newest democrats, the illegals/anchors.
United Nation 1 of 3 Irvin Baxter ( The UN formed to stop the world from going into wars. UN believes that if we have no borders, no guns and only a military under UN rule, that we will have peace in the world). Also look up UN's " Responsibility to Protect" and what that means to our sovereignty.

NEW WORLD ORDER National ID & Economic System To Be ENFORCED In U.S.A. January 15th 2013
Why are we not following the immigration laws that are on the books? Rubio, who is NOT a natural born citizen, is only concerned with his chances in 2016. Shameful politicians! And yes, Obama is also NOT a natural born citizen.
Ghandi defeated the British Empire without firing a single shot, much like Mexico is doing to the U.S.
If you give these kids legal status, they can then petition for their ENTIRE family to stay. This is simply an amnesty for all illegals. There is also no way to know when they were brought here.
The borders need to be closed FIRST! All this is going to do is exactly what Reagan's amnesty did - open the floodgates for more- they knew if they invade in high numbers that they'll get to stay because our goobermint will do NOTHING to stop them. And if welfare isn't included, the GOP STILL won't get the "latino" vote- the gimmedats want handouts!
If illegals get privileges so do I.
The next tax season, I should pay no taxes. Next speed limit sign, I should be happy to exceed it and not pay any fines. I should be able to qualify for whatever government programs I would otherwise be INELIGIBLE to receive.
Of course, if a Congressman or Senator can do things like crash cars and drown people, or profit on insider trading, or refuse to pay their taxes for years. HELL! So should we!
I don't see how they think this will get more Hispanics to vote GOP when all the Dems will do is promise them more.
This is so dumb. Let's say it passes and we give millions of illegal aliens a new non-citizen resident status. In a few years democrats will be screaming racism if another law isn't passed to give them a path to citizenship.
And the Republicans wonder why 2 or 3 million people didn't come out to vote! If these type of measures get enacted, they can see more losses! I heard a guy in Nevada is starting up the Whig party! Who woulda thunk!
The DREAM Act will only convince more Mexicans to drag their little children across the dangerous border one they learn that kiddies are keys to the kingdom.
What about the law breakers that brought them here? Time for citizens to stake out the border I guess.
Hay, maybe that's what all those solar power installations in the desert are for; to electrify the new double fence.
One can dream.
I have NO problem coming to America, my problem is that they assume because they border us that they get preferential treatment over those who have been trying to come to America for years and have waited in line. THAT is what TICKS ME OFF!
They are allowed to come here illegally while others who are LEGAL are given a back seat!
I DON'T THINK SO! Liberals are aiding and abetting a crime, and their crimes must be prosecuted!
This is coming from a hispanic that is very much against ilegal immigration:
From all the massive problems that this country has, The massive debt which is $16 trillion, the massive entitlement problem, inept Republican messaging problem, this is not what these temporary politicians should be concentrating on, it reminds me when Obama had the Congress and the Senate to himself, and he concentrated on Obamacare. This bill does not address the real problem, which is that this country is the only industrialized country in the world that does not enforce their borders, therefore I will not support any bill that does not first address that problem. the Republicans are naïve when they think that by pandering to the Latino voters like this they are going to increase their voting block, unfortunately most of the Hispanics are big government people, and believe the government has an obligation to help them.
Sorry PHC, but you are wrong.
The EU, in it's infinite wisdom, has invited every Koranimal from the Islamist countries of North Africa to reside in the EU with complete freedom of movement between countries.
They have given up their sovereignty to the NWO's in Brussels.
There are now Sharia enclaves in every EU state.
It will be here soon.
"unfortunately most of the Hispanics are big government people, and believe the government has an obligation to help them."
This principle, unfortunately, defines the US policy which promulgates illegal colonization, and prioritizes our legal immigration as well.
America is poisoning our own well. It truly is national suicide.
Simple Immagration reform would be to place a 30% tax on all out going fund transfers to areas south of the border and or pay illegals $10.000.00 cash to exit. It is far cheaper to pay the illegals to leave then to pay for there schooling, healthcare, food stamps and the catch and release system ICE has in place.
Imagine if passenger ships arrived every day at the ports of NY, Boston, LA...etc with 1000's of new people looking for work, free school, healthcare, foodstamps etc. The visual would have impact of people just getting off ships and just flooding communities. But if you are from the walking class you can enter and help destroy the USA.
Without ending "anchor baby" paths to citizenship, this fixes absolutely nothing. It's a rewording of law that won't change policy one bit.
And for the love of God, people, please stop falling for this issue being about "immigration." Stop using the language of the left. We have an illegal alien, illegal entry, uncontrolled borders problem, not an "immigration" problem.
Yeah, like there is nothing else more pressing to worry about at the moment. I want to know what Obama was doing when our citizens were being murdered in Benghazi. I want to know what is going on with Fast and Furious. I want to know why the southern border is still wide open. THOSE are issues. This is utter nonsense.
Anyone care to speculate why, given the unprecedented disaster in our economy, foreign policy and national security, this is what the Republicans think is an important "reform" issue???????
No speculation needed. They got their azz kicked in the election and are scrambling for answers instead of looking at the cold hard truth.
P.S. The narrative that Latinos are conservative by nature...just like Blacks...is an absolute lie. There may be some commonalities but they are not overall conservative or even understand the concepts of conservatism. Most want those entitlements...PERIOD!
And is this just a ploy to get Hispanic voters to "like" the Republicans?
I'm all for immigration reform but would prefer that what we currently have was better enforced, and there's no doubt that we HAVE to deal with those illegals who are currently squatting in this country. I may be heartless, but any illegal who is here illegally should, imo, be deported. They broke the law. If I break it, I'm deported to jail.
Now the anchor babies, I might have a little flexibility towards them but frankly, would prefer they also get deported with their families.
It would also be nice if someone would take a moment and stop the in-flow of these aliens by securing our borders. Just sayin...
So, there's where I stand. Open season on Sober Thinking begins.... now.
YES! It is!
Repugnantcans are pathetic! They are so driven by political self-preservation they would sell their soul to satan to preserve their seats in Washington. They are as disgusting as liberals are and I can't help but wonder if there isn't a special place in hell for both of these groups.
