Translation: This is all about Latino votes.
Immigration is a win/win proposition for Democrats. If the bill fails they can
continue painting the GOP as a bunch of out of touch, old, angry white guys and
if passes they get more latino voters. It's all good.
It is blatantly obvious that the Democrats are salivating over this amnesty
bill. Owing to the fact that the birth rate among core Democrat voters is about
half that of Republican voters, the Democrats need a massive infusion of new
voters.Before 1987 California was a Republican stronghold. The 1987
amnesty bill turned California into a Democrat stronghold.Those
Republicans who believe that Latino's are ever going to vote Republican en
mass are deluding themselves. Democrats insisted on amnesty
provisions in the 1987 immigration reform bill.Democrats made it illegal
to ask if a person was legally in the US in the Motor Voter Bill.Democrats
punish American's defending themselves from illegal aliens in southern
Arizona.Democrats punish boarder agents for doing their job.Lindsy Graham and like minded Republican's are committing political
suicide.If the Republican leadership supports this bill, this life long
conservative Republican predicts that one of two things will happen:1. The religious conservatives will take over the Republican party.2.
The religious conservatives will bolt the party and form a third party.Neither option will ever produce a Republican majority in congress or take the
Unless the border is secured and worker identification is enacted this will be a
collossal disaster that will bring another 40 million lawbreakers across our
borders in the next 15 years.At best these people should receive a chance
to return home and file for citizenship the legal way without penalty. But they
should not be rewarded with a new path to citizenship while they remain within
"Lawmakers from both parties voted to begin formal debate on a proposal that
would give an estimated 11 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally ***a long
and difficult path to citizenship***."Long and difficult? My
behind! It's gonna be a walk in the park.
Isn't it more than a little unfortunate that illegal trespassers have
forced us to decide between enforcing the laws, or (possibly)who will be
President in 2016?I'm not so sure Democrats care more about
illegal trespassers than they do their own legal neighbors. But I do think the
"party leaders" think they can win elections if they're able to
"reform" immigration laws.There is NOTHING wrong with the
current immigration laws, except they don't get enforced.When
law enforcement is politicized, BOTH parties lose.
Republicans who support amnesty are way off base. The majority of Americans
oppose amnesty for immigration law breakers. Not for one second do I believe
illegals will need to wait years for citizenship --- especially since today the
Supreme Court ruled proof of citizenship is not required to vote! Can you
believe that? The vote was 7-2. Oh, how I miss the America I grew up in.
I wish the Deseret News would quit running propaganda pieces put out by the AP.
This article couldn't be more wrong if it tried. Even if Romney
would've gotten 70% of the Latino vote (a number never achieved by a
Republican), he still would have lost. Passing this bill will give the
Democrats a decades long boost of voters.I don't see any
articles reporting the Mob of 200 illegal aliens and supporters show showed up
at the personal residence of Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach over the
weekend. Why the silence, Deseret News editors? Is this type of intimidating
behavior condoned now, at least in certain cases when the victim has a
conservative viewpoint on issues?
Let's see...Democrats - Willing to damage America's
sovereignty for the Hispanic vote to stay in office. They want amnesty before
borders are secured which means millions more illegals will show up in this
country to get the same benefits.Republicans - Know full well if
borders are not secured, millions more illegals will pour into this country and
that a nation without control of its borders is no sovereign nation.
Republicans are not willing to exchange votes for destroying America.
Long and difficult? Send them home to come back legally. If we allow
them to stay, they will receive amnesty to stay and work. Business will
receive amnesty for illegally hiring them.Organizations Churches and
individuals who encouraged them to come and stay will receive amnesty. I guess the authors of the article figure 13 years is long enough, that we
won't care, or will forget about it. But allowing them to stay and work is
what they want, and under the law, the 13 years can be waived. Waived and exempt
is used 1.17 times per page.
@SLars:"Waived and exempt is used 1.17 times per page."Good point, Lars. Once amnesty is given to the 11 million illegals (mostly
Hispanic), any effort to shut off the influx of illegals will be forgotten. Our
borders will never be secured nor will the visa problem (overstays) be solved.
Democrats are leading the effort in order to get the Hispanic vote to stay in
office and to control all three branches of government in the 2014 election.
They are essentially trading the sovereignty of our nation for a vote.I hope the Republicans will not yield and stick to 'secure the borders
Democrats want amnesty, Americans are against amnesty.Republicans want
enforcement, Americans want enforcement. By 2016 people will know
the secret loopholes hidden in the bill. We need harsh penalties for
employers and those here illegally in the bill. Paying $1000 that is put in a
fund to help them gain citizenship is not a penalty.
