Deadline for Immigration Overhaul Is August, Says Diaz-Balart (Video)

The deadline to pass immigration legislation is this August, said Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., who is part of the effort to develop an immigration bill that could pass the House.

“The legislative process in essence, frankly, has to work on deadlines. There’s a deadline. And the deadline is that if we don’t get it done by August it doesn’t happen,” Diaz-Balart told CQ Roll Call at the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute’s awards gala Thursday.

“If Congress doesn’t act by the August break, the president is going to do something. And once that happens, two things happen,” said Diaz-Balart. “No. 1 is that the possibility of any further negotiations — of any — disintegrate.”

The Florida Republican added that if there is executive action on immigration, the president “will also then create a narrative of his choosing and again creating a situation where no further negotiations are possible.”

Diaz-Balart told CQ Roll Call in April that lawmakers had developed a policy that would adequately address concerns about border security and the 11 million unauthorized immigrants.

“So I feel optimistic that we’re going get it done because I think most people in the House understand that what we have is unacceptable,” said Diaz-Balart, once again adding, “And if we don’t get it done by this August, it just doesn’t get done.”

Although he is optimistic, Diaz-Balart cautioned that an immigration overhaul still faces an uphill climb to pass the House. However, Diaz-Balart said, “I wouldn’t be working this hard at it if I didn’t think there was a legitimate chance of getting it done.”

The Florida Republican would not say whether House Republican leadership was receptive to his plan but he did say, “I’ve spoken to everybody.”

On Thursday, Diaz-Balart stood with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., in the garden of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in D.C. as Cantor received a Leadership in Public Service Award from CHLI. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, also received an award.

Outside the hotel, more than a dozen protesters chanted “Cantor, give us a vote!”

Pressure to address immigration policy has been growing for both Republicans and Democrats.

More than 250 protesters are expected to march to the White House Friday afternoon to pressure the president to reject the so-called “detention bed quota” that requires 34,000 immigrants to be held in detention centers. Last week, a dozen people were arrested outside of the White House as part of a rally against deportations that involved roughly 1,500 protesters.

Diaz-Balart’s optimism comes at a time of uncertainty surrounding an immigration overhaul. Although there have been recent signs that immigration could be addressed this year, Speaker John A. Boehner told House Republicans last week that there is no “conspiracy” to address immigration policy without their support.

    What a surprise that Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., would be doing the bidding of The National Council of La Raza (The Race) and other illegal alien support groups. Does the Congressman really beleive its possible to cut a deal with President Barak Obama? More Hispanic voters is a disaster for the GOP. Enforce the Law. No Amnesty

        Screw economics. This is about race. I believe it was all summed up by the commander of a US naval vessel in China in 1855, when he came to the aid of a Brit ship getting pounded by the Ch*nks. “Blood is thicker than water.” Can you even IMAGINE an American saying such a thing today? Or even thinking it?

            Look at the bigger picture. People used to come to the US for political freedom and economic opportunity, including many of our families a few generations ago. They just up and left their home countries for something better.

            But the US is not the same country it was. People have become uneducated, uninformed, and lazy. Dishonest, unprincipled people run for office and get elected by a combination of lies and passing out handouts. They borrow from our future to buy votes in the present, not worrying about the longer term impact of massive debt.

            It’s only a matter of time before braver Americans realize that they can’t fight the tide of history and seek opportunities to make their lives better elsewhere.

            If you think I’m happy with most republicans you missed my point. Yes they usually manage to take defeat from the jaws of victory and all too often do not fight the good fight for this country any more than the dark side. My point is to stay involved and try to primary the rinos. I was once so disgusted with the repubs that I did the Ross Perot thing and look what that got this country. I’m just saying not being engaged is not the answer. Fight for the right people. Believe me I have felt the same frustration with our choices. I only give to specific candidates not the party. I almost didn’t vote when McCain was running. Thank God he brought Sarah along. It would be great if there was a choice of a really good third party that had at least a snowballs chance of winning but that is not the case. We all must examine our conscious and decide what decision we will be able to live with.

            Sadly, then, you shall have no liberty, because a freedom can only exist in a society where people are governed first by their conscience. We all know right from wrong and if we don’t abide by the restrictions placed on our actions by our conscience, then we are forced to abide by the restrictions placed on us by society. And there is no freedom there. If you reject a moral code, then you have no choice but tyranny.
            John Adams said, “Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand.”

            If you think yourself smarter than Mr. Adams, please enlighten us as to how to attain liberty without morality.

For you to tell a woman that because of your morals she must carry a deformed baby to term, something is wrong with your logic. Morals like everything else changes with time, slaves were a part of life at the time and was completely moral.

And you’re wrong, morals do not change over time, societal norms do. That’s why it is important to have a moral foundation for society. Just because slavery was the norm at one time, it does not make it right.

            The overwhelming number of abortions in this country are not to prevent a deformed child. That is a poor excuse for murder. A woman has a choice before she gets pregnant to use protection or do not have sex. Unless she is nothing more than an animal and can’t control her desires.

            Okay, lets take your comment on its face, ” most abortions are not to prevent a deformed child” you admit that some abortions are to prevent a deformed child. Do you favor a women’s right to abort a deformed child? I didn’t think so because with your fuzzy logic that would be murder. So your okay with subjecting someone to a life you wouldn’t wish on your worse enemy. Accidents happen, are you in favor of abortions if it was proved it was an accident? I didn’t think so, you would rather a child live in a home that he is unwanted in.

You are fine with letting unwanted, deformed and sick children live a life of pain and despair just to satisfy some sick guilt trip you carry and try to foist on others.

            You are so ignorant. It is a proven, government statistical and highly documented, irrefutable fact that less than 3% of abortions occur on the grounds of rape, incest, defects, or safety of life for the mother. 97% is done solely for irresponsible actions and selfish needs. First, I must insist that you cease utilizing the very bigoted and harmful stereotyped of an “unwanted” child. There is no such thing as an “unwanted” child. God Loves each and everyone. From your views, it is doubtful that you have any Faith in Him. That is why God put it in the hearts of men and women to want children. Each and every “unwanted” child you speak of has someone that wants them.

            If you are really concerned about the plight of unwanted children, then loosing up on adoption restrictions and end overseas adoptions. You will also need to put an end to Hispanic and Arabic immigrants (legal/illegal) that come here and mass produce. With fewer children per household, there will be fewer “unwanted” children.

            As George W famously said “fool me once….. Shame one you, fool me twice…….uh….. Just don’t fool me again.”
            I am hopeful a good candidate will emerge victorious, and hope there will always be people who can articulate good, virtuous free market principals, and the advantage self determination has meant for our nation and culture.

            Chris Christie is “dead in the water” not that an obese East coast Jewish fellow had any chance what so ever at a national election and JEB Bush well, his family has well known UBER problems and yet to be known UBER problems who will be ripped to shreds by the US Main Stream media. Smoking gun already has shown US some of the records but least not fear NSA has more to distribute just in time for a TV DEBATE…. you know like last time with MItt and his taxes. Mitt stood down and took the fall like a well paid ….

I have that same battle with myself but if I don’t vote and just hand it all over to the pure evil then I am responsible for the demise of this country. Believe me I am hoping and praying it isn’t another Bush or Christie. I will then have one major battle with myself right up to the time to enter the booth. I will work and donate to many another candidate so that we don’t face that dilemma.

            For Pete’s sake. You must be a liberal that is trying to dissuade conservatives. Nice try but no cigar as the saying goes. If you equated Romney as almost as evil as Obama and the rest of the thug gang from Chicago then you are uninformed.

            WE only lost because too many looking for 100% agreement with the candidate stayed home thereby actually casting their vote for the bum in the Whitehouse now. That is the losing strategy. I am not the cause of the lose. Those that stay home and pout are the ones that cause the loss. And no, I sure wouldn’t put Romney in the same evil class as Obama. Did I agree with everything, no, but I sure didn’t agree at all with Obama. So good will continue to lose because too many stay home. If the shoe fits stop complaining because you are then the problem.

            I voted for Ross Perot not out of spite for the GOP establishment but because I felt he was a much better suited candidate based on his experiences and beliefs. The same would have been the case with Herman Cain had he too not dropped out of the Primaries. Does anyone else find it a bit too similar that comparative Men like Cain and Perot would suddenly drop out from a race when they such momentum that victory was assured? And the personal family reasons are just too much coincidence. That and the actions of the Supreme Court since 2009 and the actions of the GOP in Congress these past few years has led me to firmly believe that this government fed to us from CSPAN is just a ruse, a front for more self-indulgent and self-interest aligned government that follows not the Constitution or the Rule of Law. For that, I believed we are being duped and this smoke and mirrors side show has to end.

            The system of elections in America is binary: you have only 2 choices. This results in voters choosing what they perceive as the lesser of 2 evils. This is a very negative process. Where is the choice for something better? . . . something positive?

            The question is how to fix it. Placing NOTA (none of the above) on every ballot and allowing NOTA (no one) to hold the office if it wins would be a start. Then place a requirement that candidates must win at least 40% and win by a margin of 5% to the process, and the parties would have to produce candidates offering something that voters perceive as value.

            Under such a system, I would have voted for Ronald Reagan but not either of the shrubs and certainly none of the progressive liberals. Maybe such a system would force the parties to give conservative values greater consideration and voters would be given real choices. Who could get excited by Milquetoast Romney or the perennial POW J. McCain?

            True. We should never be forced to vote for the lesser of 2 evils. Just don’t vote for that position. Yes, that will give the greater of the 2 evils the advantage, but it will give a sure sign to the other that they are not wanted either. Obama and his loyalists feel that the majority of Americans fully support him yet the truth of the matter is, many voted him as the lesser of the 2 evils. They did not like his direction, his lies, or his failed policies of his 1st Term, but they felt it more important to not allow a “rich” person [Romney] become President. They have since realized that they were played by the current rich person in Office and chose the great of the 2 evils.

            1) Term limits for all branches of the federal government of 12 years in a lifetime with the following stipulations;
            a) POTUS single term of 6 years, no campaigning,
            applies to spouse of POTUS (no spouse could run)
            and must not exceed 18 years in public office,
            b) Federal judiciary 12 years in a lifetime in any federal
            elected, appointed or advisory position,
            c) US Senate 2 terms of 6 years each with state
            legislatures appointing them (as was the case until
            1910)
            d) US House terms of 3 years each with no more than
            2 terms consecutively and an enforced ineligibility for a period equal to time already served (forces a gap
            of 3 years for single terms and 6 years for 2 terms)

            2) Fiscal responsibility enforced by balancing expenditures with revenues less prior year budgets except in the event of war or national emergencies declared by POTUS and confirmed by a three-fourth (3/4) majority vote of affirmation and definition of what must occur to end the emergency

            3) Redefine citizenship to be granted at birth to offspring only if both parents can be determined to be citizens; change naturalization to 10 years with more stringent requirement including demonstrating competency in English and abandonment of any other language making English the only acceptable language for all government transactions; and denying benefit under any government funded program to anyone who is not a citizen.

            Do you not believe him?

When we know that half the country no longer pays income tax you know they don’t care who gets elected just so they get their handouts. Sadly, maybe your prediction will come true but I for one will go down fighting. If that sounds “talking big” as one respondent put it well then I guess I am guilty. There really are more of us than the Pelosis of this world but they are relentless and never give up. We need to adopt that mentality and strategy.

Yes, evil has encroached on our country but if we do not rise to the occasion to fight then kiss it all goodbye. Yes, it is hard work keeping freedom alive. Good thing the Founding Fathers didn’t think oh, they have pretty much won so we can’t possibly so let’s not even try. It’s just too hard, it’s impossible so just put up the white flag. All those that think that way don’t deserve freedom. As another saying goes freedom is not free it takes darn hard work and the blood and lives of a whole lot of good people before us.

            What I want, (a Constitutional Republic), is of little consequence, comrade. What the Progressives of both parties are implementing, over clearly majority opposition from it’s own citizens, is what matters. What do you want? What will you tolerate? What will you DO? Those are personal questions, every citizen will have to answer, the time of being able to ignore our lying eyes is coming rapidly to an end.

            Some Churchill for your consideration, comrade.
            “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Half the patriots I work with door-knocking, making phone calls to voters and elected officials, sending emails, putting out yard signs for conservatives all over the city, donating to conservatives, taking PTO to drive to rallies, etc, etc, etc are MUCH OLDER than you are! You want a road map?! I just listed out your dam n road map for you!

            Would amnesty be catastrophic? HE11 YES! Our founders gave their lives, fortunes and sacred honor! Now get off your a$$ and do SOMETHING or shut the he11 up! People spewing your poison turn off people who might fight if given half a chance. The fact that you got 12 dam n “up” votes proves my point! Get involved or get lost!

            I moved to the Philippines, May of 2007,saw this coming a LONG LONG TIME AGO. Pack your bags my friend, the USA is already dead, and the POS POTUS, is busy banging the final nails in our coffin.

            As a former soldier, these last 6 years, have been the worst, our nation has endured, it is clear , that no one in the GOP, is capable, or even wants, a course correction. As the “elites” of our country, with lifetime salaries, LEGAL insider trading, making them all millionaires, they have zero incentive to push for a return to Constitutional law, and don’t give a rats butt, what WE want.

            You make the argument of reforms that would start with term limits quite eloquently. A total of 12 years in a lifetime that encompasses every elective, appointive or advisory function including lobbying in any and all branches of the government to include the administrative, judicial and legislative. Change the POTUS term to 6 years and a single term with the codicil that there can be no fund raising or campaigning for anyone while in office. Put the same onus on the spouse of anyone serving; IOW if your spouse serves it counts for you too. In fact, I’d like to see a rule that says if any of your antecedents served within 3 generations, you are ineligible.

            But that would just be a start.

            That will take a Constitutional amendment to enact. Why not just eliminate their pensions? Give them a decent salary and benefits while they serve but this is supposed to be public service and sacrifice, not an opportunity to have the taxpayers ensure that your personal “ship comes in.”
            Take away their incentive to stay long-term and they will term limit themselves with no amendment necessary.

When the first of the month food stamp cards have no funds on them,…major American cities will burn. China, our lender, will not accept anymore IOUs.

            I looked at many different options, the biggest reason I chose the Philippines, is it has the only VA facility OCONUS (outside continental US) that can treat my injuries.

            For the liberal idiots, who want a “single payer” system, just look at the VA, it is a sample of what single payer would resemble. Ask any vet, how efficient the VA is, and they will all say the same thing, it sucks.

            As too an earlier comment, regarding the people here. The elder generation generally likes the US, because of WWII. The younger ones are a mix of lovers and haters, with little understanding of our country, and like most young Americans, can’t find the US on a globe. Hell, most can’t find the Philippines on a globe, and they think the Europe, GB, and Australia, are states in the USA.

            “These days, there are few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bear arms and use deadly force to defend one’s self and possessions.

            This will probably come as a total shock to most of my Western readers, but at one point, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. This was, of course, when we were free under the Tsar. Weapons, from swords and spears to pistols, rifles and shotguns were everywhere, common items. People carried them
            concealed, they carried them holstered. Fighting knives were a prominent part of many traditional attires and those little tubes criss crossing on the costumes of Cossacks and various Caucasian peoples? Well those are bullet holders for rifles…”

            Russians are our WWII allies without which we would not have beaten the Germans. Russians deserve their “pound of flesh” from the Germans for The 900-Day Siege of Leningrad and the USA deserves to be repaid for WWI and WWII.

            Here’s an idea: Don’t pass it at all until our southern border is enforced again. The way it works today, they’re just applying a gauze dressing on an unclamped artery.

            Actually if the economy were doing better there would be no talk of amnesty. When the economy is booming and many ILLEGAL ALIENS are working with false SS numbers about a TRILLION dollars of unclaimed SS taxes gets scooped up by the government and goes unaccounted for. However, now that the economy is bad and so many ILLEGAL ALIENS with those fake SS numbers are collecting benefits the gov is paying for, now they have to make them citizens to suffer the same fate as the rest of us. They should be throwing them out the door but now they need that communist voting block.

            Who withholds their taxes? their employer and their employer doesn’t turn in that money to the govt because they know their “illegal” workers are using fake ss numbers…..so they pocket that money and with 46 million new illegal legals which means more to come here illegally when the borders aren’t closed, they’ll be able to pocket more money in the future, so no wonder why the American Chamber of Commerce is FOR giving legal status to illegals so that more illegals can cross to use more fake ss numbers so that employers can pocket that money!

            No they get paid under the table, no taxes withheld. They then use the stolen SS numbers to file taxes returns with no stated income and receive refunds. And the use the stolen SS numbers to receive government freebies. Many times one person has more than one stolen SS number.

            Illegal Aliens Receive Billions in IRS Tax Benefits

            Friday, 23 Sep 2011 05:17 PM

            By James Walsh

            On July 7, 2011, the U.S. Department of Treasury’s inspector general for tax

            administration issued a startling report entitled “Individuals Who Are Not

            Authorized to Work in the United States Were Paid

            $4.2 Billion in Refundable Credits.”

            No wonder the nation’s finances are in turmoil.

            It is clear that unauthorized aliens are filing ITIN tax returns with fraudulent data.

            The Treasury report found that

            “One common type of fraudulent refund involves taxpayers fabricating a Wage and Tax Statement (Form W-2) that shows excess withholding and results in a tax refund.”

            That is true for those that are supported by the Day Labor institutions (which should be illegal), that is only those freshly invading our Country. Once they get hooked up with a half way house, they get established employment that may or may not be under the table. These established ones are the ones that steal SSID information, file felonious tax returns, and receive huge sums of monies back. The IRS knows all about this, yet like with all other aspects of illegals, they are purposefully disregarded. A small East Texas County had recently had a crime spree of a number of illegals. Besides home burglary, they were caught for multiple counts of fraud, one being identity theft with SSIDs.

You will find only Hispanics there as they drive off the Asians, Anglos, and Blacks. None of these low-life contractors or mini slave drivers like you would hire non-Hispanics for fear of having to pay an honest wage or worry about being sued for injury or non-payment. The later position soon to be completely eroded away with ACLU, La Raza, and other illegal groups currying more and more favor in the District Courts with the Liberal judges. Stop be cheap skates and hire American!

            Oh no, no, no. Don’t you dare believe that the illegals pay taxes and get nothing back! The first thing they do once here is start popping out babies, get them all on every single welfare “benefit” and file taxes with the itin, claim head of household and get no less than $4K-8K in “refund!” And that is BEFORE they file several thousand claims using the same household and get hundreds of millions of OUR tax dollars back on those bogus claims from a single household! It has been proven that those on welfare actually get MORE than those who are working their butts off and paying taxes. It has also been proven that the illegals get paid under the table, and then claim only enough to still pass for “poor” so they can get lots of free tax money back!

            Especially the Cubans, if you think about it logically. In Cuba, they spend all day trying to defraud their government to survive. So, they are masters of it. We are the medicaid fraud capital of America as well. The Cubans who have come during and before Carter’s Mariel boat lift, when Castro emptied his prisons and mental institutions and sent them over here, aren’t concerned with communism. They come here because they are “Dreamers” like every other immigrant. But the Cubans get a welcome mat and a packet telling them how to get money from the government. (true) because the politicians don’t want to lose the Cuban vote. Cubans vote Republican because they are still pissed at JFK for the Bay of Pigs.

            Don’t cha remember when POTUS shut down the open air memorials with barricades and National Mall in Washington DC preventing Veterans, civilian visitors, and tourists alike from accessing for the very first time in US history?

            A few good men, women, children, dogs, and yup some ooooollllllddddd US Vets showed up and took down those barriers and tossed em right in front of the White House.

            Meantime Nancy Pelosi personally thanked the POTUS for personally opening and allowing access to the National Mall that was closed to all to illegal immigrants there in Washington DC to demand their rights in the USA.

        If you really want to see what “refuse to assimilate” means, check out Europe. Not only are cultures being lost, but a new religious way of life is being imposed on the “natives.”

        And Mexico is not the only latin american country flooding the usa, although as a latino, I do have to say that they are so proud of their country that as I tell a few of these mexicans, if mexico is so great, why do you come to the USA?

        Cubans are next, but barely do you see on the news that a cuban is waving his cuban flag in school. In fact, you mainly read this stuff about mexicans.

        You ignorant little racists are really scared!

        Latinos want and are learning English. In fact, some of them don’t know Spanish.

        Latinos as a group, have more Congressional Medals of Honor awarded to them than any other group. That is in spite of the fact that many were denied them because of the racism of the Anglos (non Latino whites).

        Not all Latinos are of Mexican descent. None of them put Mexico or any other Latin American country ahead of the US. (Your ignorance is showing).

        Some actually vote republican. Even if republicans are anti-Latino, (just like you).

        Latinos do work harder than anybody else. Anglos (non Latino whites) like you, in spite of the fact that your racism denies all “minorities” access and opportunity have a higher rate of participation in dependence on social services than anybody else.

        Your problem is fear. Fear of fair competition. You are a coward. Perhaps you should try and find out where your ancestors came from and go back there. If they accept you.

      We beat them :

      Urgently Needed today and every day : millions of: emails, tweets, faxes, sit ins, petitions, letters to editors , neighborhood rallies, petitions
      signed from your neighbors, friends, circle of influence dropped off at
      your congressmen’s home state offices : ‘NUMBERS” of calls counts .

      WE had a lot of “RINOS” in 2007 too: most are still in office .

      BOTH PARTIES need to hear you rage: STOP the sinister Amnesty / legalization Plots .

      If any type of sinister Amnesty plot is passed, the only folks to blame are the conservatives for refusing to show up.

      Here is the immigration law most Americans support.

      SEAL the border. This will take approx 80,000 personnel every 400 yards along the southern border working 24/7/365 in 3 shifts with 2 men to a post. The DHS can easily do this with current budget and headcount.

      EMPOWER all sworn law enforcement officers in the United States to enforce current immigration laws.

      LIMIT all deportation hearings solely to the fact of legal status. You are either legal or illegal, there is no other state… immediately deport ALL illegals.

      END birthright citizenship. If you are born on U.S. soil you assume the nationality of your parent, as Obama likes to say, PERIOD.

      CEASE all government services for illegals. No more free school, housing, food stamps, welfare, healthcare, child care. Just humane emergency medical followed by immediate deportation when the patient stabilizes.

      TIE all future immigration to the U.S. labor participation rate. Unless 98% of Americans who want work have it, we don’t need any more immigrants.

      You forget that the first Europeans to land in what is now our Nation were the Spaniards. Yes people from Spain. The original Latinos. That the first European founded city in the “New World” was San Juan in Puerto Rico, an American Territory (and the future 51st State). The second European founded city in the “New World” was St. Augustine in Florida.

      They were here before the Brits and the French.

      Latinos have always been here. Just because you are too ignorant to know it, does not mean it is not true.

    What do you bet the House includes the extra 400 million (over two years) for John McCain’s Tucson Sector Arizona Border Patrol, Operation Streamline, the Correction’s Corporation of America’s additional Arizona prosecution pork and pork for FEMA’s “Operation Stonegarden” in Arizona. See S.744 Section 6 (a)(3)(C)(2)(B)(i) referenced in 1104(a)(1) Section 6 (a)(3)(C)(2)(B)(ii) referenced in Section 1104(b).

    Nice how these Washington Senate immigration profiteers hide different tax payer costs in the 1,200 pages of incomprehensive double-talk (or double take) .

    For hard taxpayer reform cost facts just scroll down to Section 6 “Comprehensive Reform Funding” (a)(2)(A) to see the initial $46.3 billion tax payer price tag.

    All of this of course is part of the Senate’s already passed S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act
    https://www.govtrack.us/congre

    Oh and don’t forget Section 1102 of S.744 which doubles the size of the border patrol. And watch – the House will try and do this despite this recent report about decades old, US Border Patrol systemic overtime corruption.

After observing what Gutierrez, Diaz-Balart and every other member of the Hispanic Caucus, as well as 99% of those Latinos serving in local/state government, have betrayed this country and our culture I will never vote for any Hispanic candidate until such time as they prove they work in the best interest of those they are sworn to represent – ALL Americans (vs Latinos).

Yes, La Raza is great. The NAACP is wonderful. How about an organization devoted to promoting the interests of normal white Christians? To ask the question is to answer it.

    “Out of deference to the critics, I want to comment on … what the bill will not do.
    First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under
    the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the
    same … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset … Contrary to
    the charges in some quarters, S.500 will not inundate America with immigrants
    from any one country or area, or the most populated and economically deprived nations of Africa and Asia. In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of
    immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think. Thirdly, the bill will not permit the entry of
    subversive persons, criminals, illiterates, or those with contagious disease or
    serious mental illness. As I noted a moment ago, no immigrant visa will be
    issued to a person who is likely to become a public charge … the charges I have mentioned are highly emotional, irrational, and with little foundation in fact. They are out of line with the obligations of responsible citizenship. They
    breed hate of our heritage.”(Senate Part 1, Book 1, pp. 1-3) — Senator Edward Kennedy on the 1965 Immigration Act

    Democrats Force U.S. TaxPayers to Fund Illegal Alien Welfare

    “This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We
    will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another
    amnesty bill like this.” — Senator Edward Kennedy on the 1986 amnesty.

    The power of Congress “to exclude aliens from the United States and to prescribe the terms and conditions on which they come in” is absolute, being an attribute of the United States As a sovereign nation, through the action of the legislative department, can exclude aliens from its territory is a proposition which we do not think open to controversy. Jurisdiction over its own territory to that extent is an incident of every independent nation. It is a part of its independence. If it could not exclude aliens, it would be to that extent subject to the control of another power. *** The united States, in their relation to foreign countries and their subjects or citizens are one nation, invested with powers which belong to independent nations, the exercise of which can be invoked for the maintenance of its absolute independence and security throughout its entire territory. — SCOTUS 1889

    This country is doomed, it’s going to be a one party country from that point on.
    Picture EVERY political office under the control of democrats. Senators, Congressmen, Mayors, Governors, state boards, judges, etc., etc., etc.

    “The legislative process in essence, frankly, has to work on
    deadlines. There’s a deadline. And the deadline is that if we don’t
    get it done by August it doesn’t happen,” Diaz-Balart told CQ Roll Call
    at the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute’s awards gala
    Thursday. “If Congress doesn’t act by the August break, the president is going
    to do something. And once that happens, two things happen,” said
    Diaz-Balart. “No. 1 is that the possibility of any further negotiations
    — of any — disintegrate.”

    Why’s the president set this deadline? So the majority of illegals can register to vote for the mid term elections? Isn’t this akin to rigging elections by executive fiat?

    I call his bluff. If the president was so serious about signing off on amnesty he would’ve done so already.

I would say that at least 85% of U.S. citizens are against giving “amnesty” to illegal border-jumpers, and would prefer they were rounded up and sent home. For both parties to make this a top priority is proof that amnesty for illegals is a conspiracy to destroy the USA.

      In the past, if I heard someone talk about “an alliance between government and the criminals to keep the citizens in line”, I might have thought they were some kind of conspiracy nut. But guess what? The government does bring in criminals to keep us in line. They bring in criminals and terrorists from all parts of the world and drop them into our communities. When those criminals and terrorists wreak havoc, it’s another excuse to empower the NSA, FBI, ATF, Bureau of Land Management, Homeland Security and all those police agencies.

    Why is the expectation of people to abide by our laws, anti-patriotic? Since when has criminal activity, been held in higher regard, than my rights, as an American?

    I agree that there needs to be something done to fix our immigration problems we face, but rewarding criminal behavior, is the LAST way, too approach this.

    Placing American citizens, front and center, is absolutely imperative. We have said for years, that amnesty for criminal behavior, does not represent our values. Securing our border, and making sure that our laws, are followed, just as we expect, and abide by, the laws of nations we travel too.

    It’s clear that our dictator, has no fear of trampling the Constitution, bypassing Congress, and circumventing the “will of the people”, to add 12 million criminals, to the Democrat roles. Hell, I would be better off, taking a trip to mexico, legal or otherwise, and recrossing the border, while getting a little wet. I could apply for welfare and SSA, saying “no speaka da anglish”, for fast tracking of YOUR MONEY, to my mailbox.

    I used to think that the clock was ticking on the United States, as I knew it. But with this POS POTUS, and the worst congress in history, the clock has been unplugged, the buzzer long since, torn apart from sounding the alarm, and no one heard it, we were all too busy, watching the Jersey Shore, and picking our noses, looking for brains.

    We must close the borders, stop the flow of illegals (not ‘undocumented immigrants – ILLEGALS!) and then & only then should we even begin to consider the possibility of allowing long time lawbreakers to somehow atone for and be forgiven for their crimes.

Look at what is happening to Europe, especially England where they are being inundated, infact an outright passive invasion on there countries. I’m not an isolationist, nor am I racist but you must earn the right to be here. That does not mean sneaking across the border, weaving into society for 30 years, having children and then expect to be given a pat on the back and slap on the wrist for your lying and thievery. Yes, you are living a lie, you deserve nothing. The Republican Party is so afraid of offending these usurpers and liars because they will be outvoted in favor of Democrats, who of course want to eliminate the corrupt and tattered immigration laws. I say vote out every one of these scumbags for even uttering amnesty unless in the negative. They are frauds, liars and corporate sell outs. There needs to be a revolution in this country. It starts at the ballot box, if that fails then it may need to move from the ideological in to the physical realm. I don’t want that, I believe we can restore the greatness of America but first the American People must remember what it means and takes to be great.

The Illegal alien in general is poor uneducated and has very little to offer an advanced society outside of cheap labor (slave labor).

Amnesty will not only be the death of the GOP but will also break our financial back as about 3/4 of new immigrants end up on assistance programs. We have bigger problems.

    It’s political opportunism at the expense of the American people. I hope someone drives the point home with the Congressman, and if he bleeds when it’s withdrawn then the point was made sharply. 1 million legal aliens annually; the Senate bill would allow some 30 million over the next 15 years in addition to adding the purported 11 million illegals. No provision for a “Bracero” program, the abolition of which in 1965 lead to the explosion in illegal aliens. A Border State Security Commission that is constituted and formed ONLY AFTER the DHS says we cannot secure the border, meaning those with the most skin in the game are left out until the lying Federal government admits that it can’t do the job…the same DHS reporting “record” deportations when in fact they have dropped precipitately… send a message the City of Washington, DC. and its occupants. Perhaps those that replaced them might be a little more circumspect in their decisions. I’m thinking it would be most effective it the road leading to the Capitol was lined with the hanging bodies of current members of Congress.

When you include those who leaned toward either party, though, the Democrats’ lead increased to 54 percent to 19 percent.

    The President promised that passing the amnesty bill would result in these three items.
    1.The government would make a concerted effort to control the borders.
    2. An effective employer verification program would ensure that only legal workers were hired.
    3. One-time amnesty would be granted for people illegally in the United States.

    The President, was Ronald Reagan and the year was 1986. The results of legalizing approximately 3 million illegals?

    1. The border is still as porous as it was in 1986.
    2. The effective employer verification program doesn’t work (E verify) if the employer doesn’t use it. When was the last time you heard of a company being fined or closed because of hiring illegals?
    3. So, now they want to make 12-18 million illegals legal,with a promise that this is the last time.

    Sure it is.

    I am Hispanic American citizen, born and raised in the US who opposes amnesty. However, if they insist on passing some sort of amnesty then they need to guarantee the American people that those who would become a public charge will not be allowed to remain in the US and become a burden to the taxpayers. They must guarantee the American people that these individuals and their families will not be eligible for welfare, food stamps, free housing, free healthcare, etc. Anything that is paid for by the American taxpayers. Those who apply for any of these benefits must be deported immediately.

      You just did. We need to mention how they are ignoring out traffic laws. Just today I was in Cathedral City, Ca and saw no less than 8 beaners run the red light. Took so long my green came and went and I never got the chance to go. Beaners also seem to have a hard time with the yellow figuring out that you must stop at a yellow if you can safely. They see a yellow 1/4 mile away and think they can continue even if by the time they get to the intersection the light is red.

        True. I got hit in my truck by a Mexican with no drivers icscnse. The car she was driving wasn’t hers and the owner had insurance. The insurance companies are going to arbitration. My insurance comapny, Allstate, is standing behind me and I am 100% not at fault even if an arbitrator says I am at fault. (which I was NOT!) Bottom line, she had no liscense andnshouldn’t have been on the road in the first pace. What about a lw that states that a driver with no lisence his at fault,, no matter who is, because they shouldn’t be on the road. If they weren’t driving the accident would have nver happened?

    Barrack Obama consistently violates the Constitution by selectively enforcing the law and the French Republicans say nothing.

    It is going to be interesting watching the GOP committing suicide as a party if they pass amnesty. This will cause the formation of a 3rd party, and end the GOP’s chances of ever being a majority party again since their entire conservative base will walk out on them.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot
    survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable,
    for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves
    amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through
    all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the
    traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his
    victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the
    baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a
    nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the
    pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no
    longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

    I find it amazing that Mexican Socialist Racists (La Raza) from a culture of wide spread corruption and merciless ultra violent gangs, that turned their country into an unemployable, unlivable 3rd world cesspool of misery, torture and Machete hacking death, feel that they have the moral right to illegally cross our boarders so that they can do the very same thing here. I could understand the justification if they were an advance civilization that could offer Americans greater technology, safer streets, greater freedom, and a better way of life. But they don’t. The only thing these Racist Mexican Socialists/Marxist Pragmatists offer America is more corruption, more crime, more violent gangs, more iron bars on windows and doors, and the same rot and decay that they gave to Mexico and her citizens.

    America and the nations of the West have gone insane.

    Treasonous leaders working against the interests of their own country
    and people, and the people quietly allowing themselves to be replaced.
    Our enemies no longer have to invade, they just have to immigrate.

    CORRUPTION at every level.

    These Politicians don’t give a damn what YOU think. They don’t give a
    damn what YOU want. They will decide what is best for THEMSELVES and
    their Swiss Bank Accounts, and the majority of Americans can go to hell!

    The Republican RINO fix is in, cheap labor wins. Democrats get their votes and the Republican Party cuts its own throat.

    All the hard work, blood and sacrifice in over 200 years for nothing.

    Our corrupt so called “Representatives” will lie, cheat, and steal to
    create a Third World existence, full of overpopulation, poverty,
    violence, and pollution….so long as the labor is cheap for one party,
    and the votes are guaranteed for the other.

    Never in the history of mankind has a nation and its people purposely
    strived for, and celebrated their own destruction. It is straight out

    Real immigration reform

    All who entered the country illegally must return to their country of origin and apply for citizenship behind all those legally waiting

    Only those for which we have skills shortages will be admitted and then so only by strict quotas from each country so that we do not develop anti-american enclave cultures in the USA.

    No one may take any position for which a healthy American currently on public assistance of any kind can do the work and actually begin to “pay” taxes instead of merely filing taxes to get their big welfare bonus check of up to $20,000 per year from the tax filers who actually do pay taxes.

    Today in the United States, 22 million Americans want, but cannot find,full-time jobs. Among Americans with only a high school education, one in five (20%) cannot find full-time work.
    Among Hispanic Americans with only a high school education, 36 percent cannot find full-time work.
    Among Black Americans with only a high school education, 40 percent cannot find full-time work.
    Among American teens—16 and 17 year olds—40 percent cannot find full-time jobs. And yet, today in the United States, because our government has abdicated its duty to enforce immigration laws, an estimated 7 million non-agricultural jobs are held by illegal aliens. The vast majority of these illegal aliens have no more than a high school education.
    In addition, our government cur rently grants permanent work permits to an average of 75,000 working-age legal immigrants every single month, under the most generous legal immigration policy in the world. About half of these immigrants have no more than a high school education.
    How is it morally or civically acceptable for the U.S. government to not just ignore the plight of 22 million Americans who desperately need jobs, but to actively pursue a policy that actually imports more workers to compete with them for scarce jobs, and that drives down wages?
    How is it morally or civically just to import large numbers of foreign workers at the expense of native-born minorities?

    How is it morally or civically right to import foreign labor and thereby deny our own young people the entry-level jobs the y need to develop a work ethic and begin to climb the economic ladder?
    It simply is not moral or civically responsible to offer the American Dream to mass numbers of foreigners at the cost of denying it to the most vulnerable of our fellow Americans.

    US citizens are about to be swept into the gutter

    ‘Immigration’ is about Obamacare:

    If you’re a US citizen woman, student or a working black, or gay or white or Asian or Latino ‘US CITIZEN’, any US citizen, you’d better read this:

    Who are the CEO’s that want illegal invaders to take US citizen’s jobs, look for yourself below.

    Google: Obamacare Loophole Provides Incentive For Employers To Hire Illegal Aliens Over US Citizens.

    Google: Companies lay off thousands, lobby for millions more immigrant workers.

    This is why big corporations and Zuckerfacebook are lobbying so hard for ‘immigration’.

    The letter is available online and the names of the companies, their traitorous corporate CEO’s are lobbying for ‘illegal invasion to take your job':

    HERE’S THE LIST:

    Google: Cheesecake Factory, Hallmark, Disney, and Others Now Pushing … Sep 12, 2013

    DO YOU OR ANYBODY YOU KNOW WORK AT ONE OF THESE COMPANIES?

    Look what your company’s CEO intends to do to your job.

    Contact them, boycott them WHEN YOU CAN, share this list.

    Show this list to your buyers and purchasing dept.

    Show this list to your co-workers going out for lunch.

    Put this list on your bulletin board at school and work.

    … The participating companies mentioned in this article, must be put on notice for their treasonous intentions.

    Illegal ‘immigration’ is also about Obamacare.

    Elections 2014, throw out the progressives; RINOs and ‘all’ democrats:

    The scariest part of this whole article is the thought that once again, an executive action, over and beyond that which was intended under the Constitution is directing the game plan on this (and so many other) issues. Congress needs to gather up its collective courage and assume the duties and responsibilities of being an co equal branch of government with check and balance power against a too aggressive executive. Our immigration policy would work fine if the laws already passed were enforced.

    Amazing. The democrats have shifted the dialogue and the republicans are going along with it. The premise that if republicans don’t act by August then the President will act with no compromises on illegal immigration. If the President decides to work outside of the law, then so be it. The House and the Senate have recourse which is called impeachment. The President has already acted in a lawless manner in which he could and should be impeached. It’s a pity that the republicans are not up to it. They will be the dinosaur of politics. They are committing hare care. If this passes republicans have lost the white house forever. If nothing else, this will create a third party in which the conservatives will find a home.

I don’t see Mexico changing its citizenship laws for illegals who cross into their borders, nor do I see Canada, which will be the next stopping place for the masses who have no respect for borders. The Republican Party should tread lightly on this issue as they will not garner any benefit, and they will surely open the floodgates if they allow amnesty thereby destroying the Republican Party.

    Well, I hope “it doesn’t happen”. I hope enough common sense and patriotism prevail over the special interests, lobbyists, and socialists in the legislature that it dies before it ever gets a vote. Why? Simply because “amnesty’s” already been tried, and demonstrably, it failed.

    All we got for our misjudgement then was millions of poor who refuse to assimilate into American society and became a millstone around the necks of US taxpayers, straining the education and health care systems in the country to the breaking point in the process. And we want to do it again? WHY, for God’s sake? Isn’t the country in enough mortal danger of succumbing from the ravages of socialism run amok already?

If we don’t protect our borders now and stop this illegal entry into our country we will be over run.

Especially when much of the payroll money goes to Mexico! Hire and pay American workers, discourage illegal immigration. Raise the standard of living for Americans and watch your profits roll in!

    Here’s a unique thought congressman. Instead of handing the Democrats a victory in the election by legalizing millions of criminals and destroying the standard of living for tens of millions of American citizens by inflating the unskilled/low skilled labor pool with a bunch of foreign nationals, Congress passes a law REQUIRING Obamao to abide by his oath of office and faithfully uphold the laws of this country and when he refuses to do so AGAIN, or pulls out his little pen and phone, you sue him in federal court for violating the Constitution’s requirement that CONGRESS pass universal immigration policies. THEN when he violates THAT court order, you begin the impeachment process. Show the world what partisan hacks the Democrats are by PROVING that this President’s Administration is LAWLESS and in violation of the Constitution on C-SPAN and force the Dems in the Senate to either vote for conviction or prove to the world that they are criminals themselves. Add a measure to a must pass law that Obamao will be REQUIRED to sign if you have to and don’t let the bill come out of conference committee without the amendment. It’s what the Dems do all of the time.

    Since the GOP seems obviously more interested in joining the Dems than defeating them, exactly why does the GOP think that their base should continue supporting them? Did they NOT learn anything by the last two presidential elections? The GOP has never beaten the Dems by acting like Dems, they have ONLY beaten them by being a clearly different alternative. They remind me of the joke about the NYC Lawyer and the Texas State Trooper. The Trooper pulls the lawyer over for running a stop sign and the smug NY lawyer decided that he was going to talk his way out of the ticket by arguing the semantics of the word “Stop”, so he told the trooper that he didn’t see what the difference was between him slowing down to make sure the road was clear and asking the trooper to explain what the difference was. The trooper thought for a minute, pulled his baton and began beating the attorney in the head with it. The Attorney yelled “Hey what are you doing?” The trooper replied “I am explaining the difference between slowing down and stopping. Do you want me to slow down or would you like me to stop?” If the GOP would stop acting like NY lawyers, we’d stop beating them in the head. When a train is headed for a cliff, you don’t care if the engineers arguing about what speed they are going to hit it at, you want an engineer who is going to stop the train. Illegal aliens (that is the correct term for foreign nationals) are costing this country BILLIONS of dollars in welfare benefits (especially fraudulent ones) Fraudulent tax refunds (Why are we giving them TAX credits for children that they claim live in other countries?) lost wages through taking jobs Americans can and will do, and depressed wages by taking jobs at below market wages thereby driving down the wages of the American workers. If you want to push this country every further towards the cliff that WILL result in another Revolution, keep acting like Democrats. The only aristocrats that survived the French Revolution were those that fled France. Keep acting like wannabe aristocrats and you could very easily end up like them.

    Yes, because with the real US unemployment rate at over 12%, the lowest workforce participation in some 35 years, and record numbers of US families receiving foodstamps, not to mention the continued outsourcing of jobs to 3rd world countries, we definitely don’t need to legalize 20+ million mostly low-skilled, poorly educated illegal immigrants, dramatically increase the number of H-1B and related workplace visa, and add some 35+ million more legal immigrants in the next 30 years and prolong indefinitely the wage stagnation that has plagued working Americans for several decades, all so that the cheap labor lobby can have an endless supply of cheap. docile labor, and the Democrats can finally achieve their goal of a one-party state that will devolve into some sort of corrupt dictatorship like many 3rd world countries.

    We sent men to the moon…and brought them back alive.

    We rallied, gathered resources, and created the atom bomb.

    Yet now we’re told it’s “impossible” to get rid of 11 million criminals.

    Why? Why can’t we get rid of people who, if granted amnesty, will bring relatives…making the total 40-milion low-skill leaf-blowers and nannies who have no loyalty to America and even less fluency in English? Plus you KNOW these “hard-workers” will scramble for free government benefits once they’re legal.

    Then millions MORE will flood the country, seeing America played for a sap.

    It will be the end of the USA and the beginning of Mexico Dos.

    10 buses a day from each state for a year would get rid of the lawbreakers. We have the ways. Do our representatives have the will?

    Frankly, I don’t think they do. They no longer represent us. They are first and foremost out to keep their jobs. And they do that by catering to Wall Street and big businesses.

    Those businesses broke the social contract. They benefit from taxpayer infrastructure (electricity, roads, etc.) then incorporate overseas to pay lower taxes. Less taxes mean less things done for tax-payers. They also break unions in order to pay lower wages. They want illegals here to save more money…for themselves.

    Once upon a time, not so long ago, you could work your whole life for one company. You’d have job securitiy. You could invest in good schools, safe towns, etc. Loyalty to companies was reciprocated. They invested in towns, and gave workers pensions, healthcare, etc. It was mutually beneficial. Then we stopped manufacturing TVs, etc. and blue-collar workers were SOL. Now even companies think something is wrong if you stay for more than a few years. So there’s this sense of permanent temporariness that is not healthy. The solution is not to make endless wars and bring in endless riff-raff festering around the planet. The solution is for us to invest in and work for US!

    How much money do the rich need? If you’re making $120 million a year while regular folks risk losing their homes, having little money to buy products, who gains? We are becoming a third-world country with a few very, very rich people and a whole lot more unemployed and/or indebted citizens.

    The young inheritors of the country can’t find work and so try to pay off college debts by working in coffee shops.

    Amnesty will slit the throat of the American middle class. Democrats can give a damn about Latinos. They know that the vast majority are low educated, low skill workers and because of that will seek state and federal “benefits.” Knowing Democrats, any amnesty bill must have access to these “benefits” or they’ll cry racist. This will establish a large voting block that will more than likely vote Democrat. Democrats will go with the tactic,”if you vote for the person with the (D) next to their name, they’ll make sure you get benefits;if you vote for the person with the (R) next to their name, they’ll take all your stuff and send you back home.” If they estimate that there are 4 million illegals, then you know the real number at a minimum has to be double, but more than likely, as with the first amnesty push in the Reagan era, it will be four times as much;16 million. People crying about raising the min. wage will see their argument collapse when millions of people who were probably making less than min. wage flood the workforce and will work for the current min. wage with out question. When all those people flood our already struggling health care system the burden of taking in so many will more than likely collapse it. Many illegals don’t go to the hospital out of fear their status will be reported to the authorities. What really scares me is that the Democrats seem to be pushing for a one party system and as we have seen with N. Korea, China, Cuba and the former Soviet Union, it never works out so well for the citizens. Republicans that are pushing for amnesty seem to care about their bank accounts and status, at least that’s the only thing I can think of. Their support of amnesty will not sway the Latino vote in significant measure to make an impact. I seriously think it’s time to establish a third party.

    If they pass Amnesty, this is just the beginning:
    Here is what happened on January 1st 2014:
    Top Income Tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
    Top Income Payroll Tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
    Capital Gains Tax went from 15 % to 28%
    Dividend Tax went from 15% to 39.6%
    Estate Tax went from 0% to 55%
    Remember this ‘fact;’ if you have any money, the Democrats want it! All these taxes were passed with only Democrat votes. Not one Republican voted to do these taxes. Remember this come election time. And make sure your friends and neighbors know this info too!
    These taxes were all passed under the affordable care act, otherwise known as Obama care.

    We the People are marooned to take care of ourselves since both political parties have abandoned the Majority for the illegal aliens Minority. They have stiffed the 310 million for the benefit of the 20+ million who have broken our laws to be here and will continue to break our laws because they have NOT felt the sting of any enforcement for decades.

    The Democrats want amnesty to legalize the millions that are here to create 20+ million liberal votes from people who are stealing us blind given that our elected officials buy their votes from our entitlement funds that use to be reserved for U.S. citizens. They have them practicing law, sitting on municipal boards, and all manner of activities that use to be reserved for U.S. citizens. Can we imagine having Fidel Castro crashing our borders to engage in sedition and other un-American activities and vote for Mario Diaz Balert or more likely, his Democrat replacement?

    The Republicans want amnesty to legalize the millions that are here so that the Corporate Criminals who have been employing them can continue with impunity, while banking huge profits to fund these Congressional bozos.

    We the People have NO representation anymore in Congress or the White House. I am just wondering how much longer the Majority is going
    acquiesce and continue to be sheared by these people in our government. When are we going to reach the point when we have had enough and start to take our Country back from these reckless and irresponsible puppets with moving lips that attempt to sell us the bad ideas they continually dispense that have been dreamed up by the big money people who hold their strings.

    The only thing we have at present is our vote and this November may demonstrate if We the People have become more vigilant and willing to throw the bums out. For starters, VOTE EVERY DEMOCRAT OUT OF OFFICE IF FOR NO OTHER REASONS THAN THEY ARE EXCLUSIVELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE [UN]AFFORDABLE CARE ACT AND CONTROL OF THE SENATE NEEDS TO BE TAKEN FROM THE HANDS OF THE WORST MAJORITY LEADER EVER, HARRY REID.

    We may then be more vigilant and hammer their successors to stop giving away the liberty, freedom, and treasure of We the People.

    Why not just give everyone amnesty? If you ever broke a law you are forgiven, period. Empty out the jails, forgive tax cheating (would work well with the current administration), treason, illegal immigration, etc., etc. It may be a problem initially but given time would work its way out.

          Just more than half of all Americans in a CNN/ORC International poll argued that the first priority on immigration should be providing a pathway to legal status for unauthorized immigrants living in the country, while only 41 percent believed that stopping unauthorized immigration should be the top priority. These results stand in sharp relief to similar polling done in 2011 and before, when a majority of Americans believed that stopping unauthorized immigration should come before allowing unauthorized immigrants access to legal status. As CNN Polling Director Keating Holland argued, “The Republicans’ insistence that border security be the primary focus of U.S. immigration policy may have been a popular stand in 2011, but not necessarily in 2014.”

          Overall, 8 out of 10 Americans believed that unauthorized immigrants who have been in the country for years and are employed, speak English, and would pay back taxes should be allowed to become citizens, while nearly two-thirds of those polled stated that they would oppose a bill that only granted legal status but no way to achieve citizenship. Both of these results were more or less consistent regardless of whether the respondent was a Democrat, a Republican, or an independent. It is clear from the poll that the American public supports a full pathway to citizenship, not the granting of merely second-class legal status.

            To nit-pick your comment a little, pay back taxes? You dont think the illegal aliens would really do that if granted cititizenship, do you? And what percantage of these illegal aliens would be on food stamps and welfare within three years? We need an accurate count of the illegals and how many are producers and how many will be takers. Virtually impossible to do that though, so how do we ensure that amnesty is not going to be a net drain on the treasury?

We are paying folks to sit unemployed while luring others to take their place? America offers a path to citizenship now — millions come to America using this legal path and in fact more people come every year to America legally than go to every other country in the world COMBINED. The Rs like Jeb Bush say some really offensive things about these folks I guess because his wife is Hispanic. BTW Jeb–the fathers standing in line to get into America love their children at least as much as do Mexican fathers sneaking in illegally. What part of that do you not understand Jeb?

        all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the

        victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the
        baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a
        nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the
        pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no

    What a great way for the GOP to legislate. Better hurry up and take credit for amnesty…..before Obama goes around the congress and does it anyway??
    What ever happened to standing up for principles and challenging this dictator? The GOP is going for the trifecta. First destroy their base. Then allowing millions of mostly under-educated and poor to join the Obama welfare state (legally). Then bankrupting the country by having to “accommodate” the new Democrat voters.
    The government is already ignoring current enforcement laws on the books. How can anyone trust them to enforce ANY laws? “Comprehensive” reform is simply a code word for AMNESTY and the people are smart enough to realize this.

New Zealand and Australia changed there immigration laws several years back. Even legal aliens get no govt subsidy much less voting etc. There is a chance for citizenship after a certain number of years and if you have a skill they need. Allowed visa go back home every so often before they can reenter. Visas are enforced. Illegals are not allowed to stay. Australia has agreements with other countries and deports right away. Why can’t we do the same? We are a sovereign nation with laws that even the presideng is allowing others to break. Sad.

    So tell me again why we need to pass a bill on immigration to find out what is in it. And why do we need to rush anything.

    And tell me again what happened to securing our borders First and making sure that American citizens don’t have to read signs that part of this country is not safe for citizens because of illegal activity and drugs and guns and not being protected.

      Not sure of that, Reagan wasn’t perfect , but he wasn’t Progressive like several presidents before him and every president after him.
      His economic reforms kept the country going for awhile……
      The Demoncats failed to keep their end of the “Amnesty” bargain and secure the border. But neither did the Repub presidents following.
      It’s an academic question at this point anyway; the USA is being Invaded, With the cooperation of the Feral Gov. What is that called? And what can effectively be done about it?

As to your last question, I’m afraid the ultimate answer will be socio-economic devastation followed by revolution.

    If Mr Balart actually gave a crap about Americans he would fight tooth and nail against reduce or stagnate wages in South Florida due to illegal immigration the past 15 years, exploding public education&health care costs and the list go on and on.
    So Mr Balart where have you been as 20 million illegals crept across our borders,e verify a became national joke, American pride in workmanship disappeared and middle class tradesmen& women wages plummeted-where have you been Mr Balart?

    Hey Diaz-Balart, how about ENFORCING THE IMMIGRATION LAWS?

  394. jrcowboy49

    May 10, 2014
    12:16 p.m.

    One of the problems with any amnesty-based immigration policy is that
    it encourages more illegal immigration. Offering a shortcut to citizenship in
    return for military service is no different. What’s more, the immigrants in
    question would be those who are brought to the U.S. as children—often called
    DREAMers (after the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act). Allowing unlawful immigrants to join the military in exchange for citizenship is a
    radical and perverse incentive that would encourage more illegal immigration of
    children. Not only would this plan worsen immigration problems; it would also
    create new security concerns. They would be required to take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States even though they are still technically citizens of other countries. Serving in the military is a high calling and a privilege—certainly not something to be treated as a bargaining chip in immigration politics. The Obama administration already has a problem with enforcing existing immigration laws, and the president has promised a “year of action”—executive action, that is, without Congress. With more administration “fixes” in the pipeline, Congress shouldn’t be doing damage of
    its own to America’s immigration policies. It should be focused on reforms Americans agree on—like securing the borders, making the system work better for legal immigrants, and providing effective temporary worker programs. Most importantly, however, Congress should be using every tool at its disposal to pressure the Obama administration to enforce the law faithfully.

    To my “Representatives”:

    With all due respect, I’d like to remind you that Ronald Reagan
    granted amnesty with assurances that our Southern borders would be secured. Secure
    borders never happened under Regan and it won’t happen EVER if it is not
    required first. Here are some other things I and many of my fellow Americans
    would like to see happen:

    Split the immigration issue into two separate parts- one for legal
    immigration of educated and skilled individuals who can immediately
    contribute to our society It’s a sad commentary, if true, that our own students can’t fulfill these
    jobs. Our education system has been dumbed down so that the average high school
    graduate does not have the basic skills to take college level courses.

    The second part should
    be dealing with ILLEGALS. This should be separate and apart from legal
    immigration.

    FIRST – SECURE THE
    BORDERS NOW, NOT “AFTER”

    SECOND – Enforce
    the existing laws including e-verify. In my State of California, the
    brilliant lawmakers passed a law prohibiting municipalities from mandating
    private employers to use e-verify. So,
    tell me how the federal government plans to “enforce” e-verify.

    THIRD – Do not allow “Chain Migration”

    FOURTH – Say NO automatic “citizenship” for
    “anchor babies” many of whose births are paid for by US Citizens. The 14th
    Amendment was never intended to grant automatic citizenship to anyone other
    than the children of slaves.

    FIFTH -NO more welfare or other government
    handouts to illegals.

    SIXTH NO voting rights

    Questions:
    1. Why not to give all illegals working visas – just like the one for the professionals? Employer would pay some amount and apply for visas? The fee should be sufficient to support the welfare of the worker.

    2. The main reason given to us why we need “undocumented” workers – there are jobs that americans would not do. Ok. Once you legalize illegals they will give up those jobs and will compete for the jobs that Americans would do.
    3. What are you going to tell to those who have applied for the immigration to US and wait for 10-20 -30 years to have that opportunity.

    I agree that it is immoral to have a system when people are here illegally without rights, etc and we close our eyes on them. So force employers to pay for the working visas, no path to citizenship (unless your employer sponsorship), no welfare, have to pay a full fare on ACA, etc. Those who get working visas will stay, the rest will go home.

    Republican party members, I and many like me will stay home in November if you give in on this issue.

    I am a second generation Hispanic American and find that the lack of border enforcement and pandering to those who are in this country illegally is degrading to my heritage. Those upstanding individuals and families that came here by legal means have embraced their new country fully and make society stronger by their work ethic and dedication that led to their extreme efforts to enter this country legally.

    If those who wish to live in American want it bad enough, they will put the effort into legal entry. Those who take shortcuts don’t have the same level of commitment as is demonstrated by their also placing such a high demand on our social service programs.

    The harder one must work to achieve some goal, the greater is their dedication to that goal.

    My mother’s old neighborhood in Montgomery County is over run with illegals. The single three bedroom house nextdoor is the nest for five families at last count. The family across the street is running a used car lot on Grenoble Drive. The Brave Citizens fighting the People’s Soviet of Maryland need help not more illegals. Martin O’Malley can take a hike. Any GOP traitors can go with him. Another example of the GOP snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, shooting themselves in the foot, or forming a circular firing squad.

    The Republicans that support this are only doing the bidding of their masters at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce who want to continue the flow of cheap labor for their corrupt and cheating members. The flood of cheap labor SCREWS the working class by 1) lowering the wages paid and 2) lowering or eliminating the taxes paid. Those companies that hire ILLEGAL labor CHEAT their law-abiding competition. Instead of focusing on the poor Mexicans who are simply fleeing their incompetently and corruptly governed $hit hole of a country, we should be sending the employers who hire these folks to prison for 5 years at a minimum. Frog march some CEO’s to prison in orange jumpsuits and leg shackles for the TV cameras and you would see a huge deterrent impact. BOTH parties are corrupt and deserve to be tarred and feathered for selling out working class Americans. As the saying goes, Democrats want illegal immigrants to vote but not work and Republicans want illegal immigrants to work but not vote.

    Hey Mario, here’s a news flash for you and ALL the other clowns in Washington: The Federal government already has all the tools necessary to enforce border security. You, Mario, are failing to do your job because you are not holding the executive branch accountable for failing to secure our borders. You, Mario, are also guilty of abusing the trust your constituents showed in electing you by assuming they will go along with your advocated trade of amnesty for border security.

    You, Mario, are part and parcel of the problem with the GOP; you don’t know the Constitution nor the benefit of a two party system. At present, we have a one party system, all politicians.

    So, Mario, you said, “And if we don’t get it done by this August, it just doesn’t get done.” Here’s the interpretation: If we don’t get amnesty done by August, we won’t be able to commit party suicide on November 4,2014.

    Notice how they never try to answer that question, which absolutely should be the FIRST question asked. Do any of you even know what the existing laws are? Let me guess…NO. You just know that Democrats in general and idiots like this guy specifically are driven by some idiotic desire to grandstand on this issue and grant amnesty.

    I’ve lived in America all my life (62 years), obeyed the laws, paid untold taxes, done volunteer work, and have never claimed a government benefit. I have seen my neighborhood infiltrated by crime, my local shopping center populated by vagrants and people who accost you for money; I am sexually taunted by loitering Hispanic men as I walk from my car to the door of a shop; my local parks are over-crowded and filled with broken glass; the emergency rooms of hospitals have nine-hour waits for treatment; the staff at MacDonald’s and my nearest radiology center make mistakes on rudimentary orders because they don’t speak English clearly, if at all. My local stores have constant damage from children who run amok and shoppers who routinely trash the shelves. These observations may be politically incorrect but they are the facts. I have seen my life as an American citizen impacted in negative and threatening ways almost every time I go out the door. Why should I want amnesty?

    I will vote against any Republican or Democrat who pushes for amnesty. I honestly feel sorry for the people who must live in the America of the future, after I am dead and gone. They will never know what a great country this truly was.

    “Last week, a dozen people were arrested outside of the White House as part of a rally against deportations that involved roughly 1,500 protesters.”

    Not country would tolerate this,,I live in Wa state a few years ago some illegal aliens were seen running past the border at the Blaine (Canadian Border) and the Canadians sent out helicopters and about a hundred mountys for just three of them.

    Also Canada stopped issuing Mexicans Visa’s because they would never leave.

    These elitists and statists are desperate to cram amnesty up the Nation’s colon before the People can speak at the ballot box in November. They know they may not have the votes in the House and the Senate after the next Congress is seated.

    The polls show by a wide margin the People do not want amnesty, but want a secure border and enforcement of the laws on the books.

    Not one new guest worker, Green Card holder or immigrant until we have an unemployment rate below 1% counting everyone who is 16 to 70. Also, 20 years in a SUPERMAX Prison for anyone who hires, or supports an illegal outside of Charities, Churches and ERs. Need to stop LEFT and the CRONY CAPITALISTs of the Chamber of Commerce from doing what’s in their selfish self interest rather then what’s in the best interest of the country. Full Employment then we can talk about legalization and with Full Employment you kill three birds with a pebble: 1. Wage inequality without the “Reserve Army of Labor” wages raise and stabilize where they are fair, 2. Gender wages, without a glut of cheap labor wages will raise through out the economy without regard to the sex of the employee, 3. Illegals coming out of the “shadows” once full employment is achieved there will be no need for them to hide we will have need of their labor and skills at the real market price for those assets rather then the current LEFTIST concept of keeping them in poverty, afraid of being deported and in a hothouse of “hate” rhetoric. So let’s united against the Crony Capitalists and the LEFTISTs and only open up the immigration portal when we are actually short of labor instead of doing so when 100 million of our brother and sister citizens lack employment.

However, now that the economy is bad and so many ILLEGAL ALIENS with those fake SS numbers are collecting benefits the gov is paying for they have to make them citizens to suffer the same fate as the rest of us.

    My vote is NO to everything until we can have 100% full accountability on each INDIVIDUALLY enacted issue that needs to be addressed. My vote is NO to “Comprehensive” ANYTHING from a Congress that has continually proven to be intolerant to the NO votes of Americans and the 10th amendment. My votes are NO because I KNOW that the system WORKS, but these illegal immigrants and Congress refuse to use it or respect it.

Obama has zero credibility, How can I believe he’ll enforce a new law?, Why he may not like it and his Boy Holder (My People) will ignore it. The Government is broken. When you put your hand on that bible and swear to uphold the laws of the US and then ignore them, you need to be removed from office, period. When the leader of the Senate (Reid) refuses to have a vote on impeachment he is a traitor and should be in jail. I would be totally comfortable with armed rebellion, not because I want violence, but because there is no choice left for the people of the US. The Mexican illegals are for the most part, decent, hard working people, but they are also law breakers. They are also the cause of the lower middle class/poor unemployment problem. They need to go back. If they want to come to the US they need to follow the rules. We are (were) a nation of laws until Obama.

    Our businesses have to hire translators, customers have to speak pidgin Spanish and the illegals who were incarcerated were freed because they “haven’t committed any crimes”.

    The filthy traitor Pelosi is obviously lying about this “trillion dollar windfall” from all the additional Third World immigrants she wants to import on behalf of her zionist overlords.

    The Danish government recently released a study on immigration that is quite telling: In 10 years, immigration from Western countries earned the government $440 million additional revenue. Immigration from non-Western countries costed them $10 billion in that same time period.

    Which immigrants do you suppose Pelosi intends to impose on us?

    It’s obvious that these Republicans work for the international banking cartels, the oligarchs and the globalists. Otherwise they would have the sense to realize that none of the immigrants Obama intends to flood us with will be voting Republican.

    These geniuses apparently are attempting to remove themselves as a viable political party. The ones we are getting now from central America are communists. They want to bring a Venezuelan style socialist, top heavy government to the US, via their proxy Obama.

    Soon, like Venezuela we will have mile long lines for toilet paper. Obama supporters are characterized by a profound lack of critical thinking that prevents them from associating tax heavy socialism, with poverty, lack and misery; even though that has been the outcome everywhere and at every time it’s been tried.

    I guess the Republicans agree with the all encompassing plan of world wide socialism. Take note of this voters, if you want to have a country at all, in the near future.

          “Corruption” IS the order of the day in every way in all walks of life throughout all ethnicities and ‘bordered’ countries the world over………… So… I really don’t know for sure. Sometimes I wonder if it’s something fantastic and impossible. Like the Earth having entered a “Cone of Stupidity” being beamed at us from a “pre- invasion space force of ‘space’ aliens……… But truthfully as I see it… Mexico is made up of TWO ethnicities. The SPANISH Mexicans and the NATIVE Mexicans. The Spanish Mexicans HATE the Native Mexicans as “inferior”…. “They are peasants…Just Peasants.” The SPANISH Mexicans, (who are in charge), are sending THEIR undesirables North simply to be rid of them so as to NOT have to share that wealth…….. But Mexico isn’t the only source of lying, cheating, thieving illegal alien invaders.. Illegal alien invaders are not identified by ethnicity nor nationality. They are identified by their illegal, CRIMINAL activity.

    If the GOP does pass the immigration bill, they won’t have a party to speak of in November. Your idea of taking the Senate in November and perhaps the WH in 2016 will fizzle totally and collapse as former GOP voters won’t show up. Goodbye GOP, you will be a hobby party of rich old white men. Sorry we knew you, don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out the door.

    Don’t be fooled we must remain vigilant and push to remove the flood of illegal aliens from the United States. We also need to reduce H1B visas to pre-1990 levels until we reduce the unemployment rate from the current 20% to 4-5%.

    The Diaz-Balart family are Cuban exiles. They got special treatment to come to the United States. Haitians, Jamaicans and many others want to come here but they get short shrift and dumped back in their home country. Living in Miami Dade county is not representative of the United States. You cannot get a job in This county unless you are bi-lingual english/spanish. The residents are mostly bi-lingual but mostly talk spanish because it maintains their HERITAGE. Being an American is less significant than their background. All the hispanic politicians want are more votes and more political power. So stop the BS and tell the truth.

      For the most part we are a land of immigrants LEGAL immigrants who added and ASSIMILATED into the culture. We need to fight everyday anything that doesn’t follow that great tradition.
      We need to organize and find common ground to revert the nation back to the “once great republic” we all still have burning in our hearts…so I ask again what are you going to DO?!

        Sorry, Gypsy, but I’ve concluded there’s nothing we can do. The MSM, the universities, Hollywood, the inner cities are all in the hands of committed, guilt-ridden socialists, whose elected representatives see their power extended through naturalization of unlimited numbers of illegals (hence open borders, as Obama, Holder, Pelosi, and George Soros all espouse).

        New citizens from the third world take full advantage of government programs, and they know which party delivers the goods.The drives to allow online voting and eliminate voter I.D. laws stem from the same impulse: To stuff ballot boxes with Democrat votes, whether real or fake.

        While maybe 20-30% of voters like you and me decry these trends, they seem to me to be unstoppable because most of the country is lazy and underinformed about the ultimate consequences of unlimited immigration. These consequences, in my view, will manifest themselves in short order, and “immigration” will fade as other crises overtake that issue: Stock market crash, dollar devaluation,Treasury bond defaults, food shortages, power outages, and civil insurrection.

        Sorry the news isn;t brighter, but I’m afraid it’s “game over” for the USA you and I grew up in. Too late to turn the clock back.

    Hispanics who have supported breaking our laws, which is contempt for American’s who made those laws, should stay in the Democrat party; the leader of the Democrat party, Barack Obama is a lawbreaker too. Such supporters of lawbreaking have earned the name Illegals. To ask lawkeepers to change the laws so lawbreakers can have equal rights is narcissism and such arrogance is idolatry, such rebellion is directly organized against Americans and demonstrates resentment of US citizens. Any political or economic threats are evidence of hatred of US Citizens. Usurping citizens by demanding what is not yours, be given to you must not be coddled or given a pass.

    Yahoo news Sat 5/10:
    ” Mexico’s government plans on
    Saturday to begin demobilizing a vigilante movement of assault
    rifle-wielding ranchers and farmers that formed in the western state of
    Michoacan and succeeded in largely expelling the Knights Templar cartel
    when state and local authorities couldn’t.

    The ceremony in the town of Tepalcatepec, where the movement began in February 2013, will involve the registration of thousands of guns by the federal government and an agreement that the so-called “self-defense” groups will either join a new official rural police force or return to their
    normal lives and acts as voluntary reserves when called on.

    The government will go town by town to organize and recruit the new rural forces.
    “This is a process of giving legal standing to the self-defense forces,” said vigilante leader Estanislao Beltran.
