Homeland Security Secretary: Illegals Have ‘Earned Right to be Citizens’
Speaking at the United States Conference of Mayors on Friday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the approximately 11 million people who are in the country illegally have “earned the right to be citizens.”

“An earned path to citizenship for those currently present in this country is a matter of, in my view, homeland security to encourage people to come out from the shadows,” said Johnson, in what he remarked was one of his first public speeches since being confirmed as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) chief in December.

Chris Christie has a health plan that he wants to sell you...its called Goodfellas Care. You check in but you never check out...its sorta like the roach motel but more New Jersey style.

Poll: Many say let illegal immigrants stay in US
CBS News Poll. Jan. 17-21, 2014. N=1,018 adults nationwide. Margin of error ± 3.
"Which comes closest to your view about illegal immigrants who are living in the U.S.? They should be allowed to stay in the U.S. and eventually apply for citizenship. They should be allowed to stay in the U.S. legally, but not be allowed to apply for citizenship. OR, They should be required to leave the U.S."
Stay and apply for citizenship.......... 54%
Remain and not apply for citizenship.... 12%
Be required to leave..........31%
Unsure.....no answer.......... 4 %

Next time you bite into a piece of fruit......most likely it was picked, washed and packaged by a illegal immigrant.....WHY? Well who else you going hire to work for $5000.00 to $8000.00 a year!!!!!!
A Triqui Mexican picks strawberries at a farm in Washington state.
As the supply chain that delivers our food to us gets longer and more complicated, many consumers want to understand — and control — where their food comes from.
But even if we meet farmers at the farmers market, urban consumers are still largely divorced from the people who grow, pick and package our food. And we may even willfully ignore their suffering, argues Seth Holmes, a medical anthropologist and professor of health and social behavior at the University of California, Berkeley, in his provocative new book, Fresh Fruit, Broken Bodies.
For two summers between 2003 and 2005, Holmes lived on a farm in the Skagit Valley of Washington state. The farm produces strawberries, apples, raspberries and blueberries to sell to berry companies like Driscoll and dairy companies like Häagen-Dazs. He traveled there with a group of Triqui Indians, across the border from their hometown of San Miguel in Oaxaca, Mexico. As Holmes soon learned, the Triquis make up the very bottom rung of the agricultural labor ladder and earn between $5,000 to $8,000 a year.
Holmes stayed in the camp with the other laborers, in a shack with a tin roof and no insulation. Over the winter, he traveled with the Triquis to Madera, Calif., to prune grapevines in a vineyard. In 2005, Holmes went back to medical school, but he has continued to visit the same workers nearly every year since.
On the berry farm, Holmes picked fruit once or twice a week; the Triqui workers picked seven days a week, rain or shine, without a day off. And that took a heavy toll on their bodies: back and knee pain, slipped disks, Type 2 diabetes, premature births. As one Triqui worker he calls Abelino told him, "You pick with your hands bent over kneeling, your back hurts; you get knee pains and [hip] pains ... You suffer a lot."

US Farmers Depend on Illegal Immigrants
Undocumented workers do the jobs Americans don't want
As summer fruits and vegetables ripen across U.S. farmland, the work of harvesting them depends on illegal immigrants.
Americans are sharply divided over what to do about illegal immigration in the United States. Conservatives have been harshly critical of the Obama administration for blocking a controversial Arizona law intended to identify and deport more illegal immigrants, who critics say are taking American jobs.
But farmers across the country have a different view. As Americans have moved away from agriculture, farm employers say they have come to rely on illegal immigrants to harvest the fresh fruits and vegetables on the nation's dinner tables.
The squash harvest is underway in the eastern state of Virginia. A crew of Hispanic workers are picking, washing, and packing the bright yellow vegetables destined for supermarkets across the East Coast.
Thirty to forty years ago there weren't that many illegals in the USA to do all the farmers work, to keep up with the demand . Once the population grew and more people came across the boarder to find work, the famers had the best of both worlds, they knew these immigrants would work for peanuts, and less and less of Americans wouldn't work for cheap labor. Even Mitt Romney had illegals cutting his grass and trimming the bushes on 3 homes here in the USA. But he claims he never knew about it ( HEE HEE !)
With U.S. unemployment near 10 percent, many believe illegal immigrants are taking jobs from Americans. But when the United Farm Workers union launched a campaign offering to connect unemployed people to farm jobs, only three people accepted -- out of thousands of inquiries.
Union president Arturo Rodriguez says most balked at the difficult working conditions.
"They really don't have any idea what it is to work in agriculture today," he says. "We've just gotten so far away from that type of society that people have forgotten."
The United States has a guest worker program that would allow farm employers to hire immigrants legally. But farmers like this one — who asked to remain anonymous — describe it as a bureaucratic nightmare.
"Every farmer I know would gladly use the program and be legal," he says. "Every Hispanic would love to be legal. But the program is so onerous, it's so hard to use, and so expensive....And you don't necessarily get your people.[If] the crop is ready,[and] the people are not here, boom, it's a loss. Most growers will not take that chance."

A true tea bagger would never understand the situation.......what ever FOX says, they believe !! Ship back all illegals then go pick your fruit or hire Americans to pick your fruit at say 10 bucks an hour and you pay triple for you produce at the grocery store..........by the right wingnuts don't see it that way....they never will....once that FIXED news gets into your brain..........you remain a puppet of the propaganda machine forever..to stupid to make up their own might while the voices in their heads still tune into FIXED news,,,,,,,,,,

A bill that would reform the immigration system is stuck in Congress. Meanwhile, farmers are increasingly concerned about losing their workforce to immigration crackdowns. They say without workers to pick the crops, fresh fruits and vegetables will rot in the fields of American farms.
The teabaggers see it different, but haven't a clue..

Eventually only the most gullible believe Barack Hussein Obama, who promised more than 35 times "if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan." Most Americans now realize that Obama intentionally, repeatedly lied to pass Obamacare.

"Just 37 percent [of Americans] say they have either a good amount or a great deal of confidence in the president to make the right decisions for the country's future, while 63 percent say they do not."

Obama's approval at new low for State of the Union address, poll shows

President Obama will speak to the nation on Tuesday night with approval ratings lower than for any of his previous State of the Union addresses.

Americans are broadly pessimistic that he or lawmakers of either party will make good decisions for the future of the country, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Obama's general weakness and the overall lack of confidence in the country's political leadership provide a stark backdrop to the beginning of a potentially significant election year.

Those numbers are the mirror image of what they were when he was sworn into office in 2009 and lower than at any other time the question was asked by The Washington Post and ABC News.

Rand Paul Is the 2016 Republican Frontrunner ??????????
LMAO!

Don't laugh. He has built-in advantages in Iowa and New Hampshire, a party moving in his direction, and formidable fundraising potential.

If Chris Christie was ever the frontrunner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, he isn’t anymore. All along, the theory behind his candidacy was that he could overcome his lack of conservative bona fides with a combination of personality, competence, electability, and money. Bridgegate undermines all four.

In the minds of many voters, Christie’s personality has morphed from brash to bully. It’s harder to look competent when your top aides egregiously abused power under your nose. Christie’s supposed electability was based partly on polls showing that he was the only potential Republican nominee running even with Hillary Clinton. But Marist and Quinnipiac, whose surveys showed Clinton and Christie virtually tied in December, now show him trailing her by 13 and 8 points, respectively. The electability argument also depended on Christie’s supposed success in bringing New Jerseyans together across party lines, a harder claim now that Democrats in the state legislature are talking impeachment. And as Christie’s electability erodes, so will his vaunted support among GOP moneymen. As a Republican insider recently told BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins,“There are definitely people jumping ship.”

So if Christie is no longer the candidate to beat in the 2016 Republican race, who is? Believe it or not, it’s Rand Paul.

The new face of food stamps: working-age Americans

In a first, working-age people now make up the majority in households that rely on food stamps.

That's a switch from a few years ago, when children and the elderly were the main recipients.

Some of the change is due to demographics, like the trend toward people having fewer children. But the slow economic recovery is also playing a role, with high unemployment, stagnant wages and an increasing gulf between low-wage and high-skill jobs.
