Congress sees immigration overhaul this year; Obama will make pitch in Las Vegas speech

Jan 27, 2013 Full story: Reno Gazette-Journal 487

Republican and Democratic lawmakers were cautiously optimistic Sunday that a long-sought overhaul of the nation's immigration system that includes a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the country will clear Congress this year, the result of changes in the political landscape shown in November's election.

"Then their was no nation No national law" RIIIIIIGHT! Ignorance is just bliss isn't it?
It is a deep thing that people still celebrate the survival of the early colonists at Plymouth — by giving thanks to the Christian god who supposedly protected and championed the European invasion. The real meaning of all that, then and now, needs to be continually excavated. The myths and lies that surround the past are constantly draped over the horrors and tortures of our present.

"One tribe fought the others" Ignorant minions, attempting and failing to find excuses to vindicate themselves.
Brother Against Brother
In hundreds of individual cases the war did pit brother against brother, cousin against cousin, even father against son. This was especially true in border states like Kentucky, where the war divided such famous families as the Clays, Crittendens, and Breckinridges and where seven brothers and brothers-in-law of the wife of the United States President fought for the Confederate States. http://www.jcs-group.com/military/war1861peop...

"allow ranchers at the border to start shooting the invaders like varmints"
What happened to the "nation of laws" theory? Keep talking nonsense and spewing hatred minions.

That would BE the law, should the country decide to pass a law allowing them to shoot illegal invaders.

That specific action could be included in immigration reform.

Yes, a nation of laws.

All we have to do is ENFORCE THE LAWs we already have.(then we wouldn't have to reform the law to allow citizens to forceable stop people from unlawfully crossing our borders).

I agree that many people who are here illegally/undocumented are criminals, but it's wrong to put us all in the same basket. I am here undocumented, but I had absolutely no choice in the matter - I came here legally, applied to stay, my attorney screwed up big time, my application was rejected, I found out over a year later despite contacting the state bar and the then INS, by that time I was here undocument, now my country won't take me back despite that I have absolutely no criminal record. I have no family to turn to, I have NEVER asked for any kind of assiance here in the US, I had a job which I got legally until recently when the business closed down, and i'm still labelled as a criminal by all of you!!!!!
I'm sorry for your situation BUT why do you blame us because your own parents broke Immigration Law?
We did NOTHING to hurt you. You are the victim of your own parents actions.

You wouldn't have the problems you do if you didn't invade and steal what belongs to others. The world is tired of your "woe is whitey" antics as you decimate the globe.
You should study Europe's history learn how they where a country of disease and famine. Learn how in the 1400's a third of Europe's population died before the age of five, and 50% before the age of 21. While the African empire of Ghana in the 1100's had established the use of Iron tools, their European counterparts only had wooden tools so they could only till the commons, or common grounds 2 months out of the year, so the people starved.
White and stole lands If you call invading other people's land, stealing it, killing of the inhabitants, genocide, slavery, enacting laws with which to keep them at the socio economic bottom "babied", I'd hate to see what whites do to those they hate.

Australia is the result of the overwhelming criminal element in Briton. However, the number of criminals pales in comparison to the number of FREE WHITES who came during the gold rush. They decimated the Tasmiania population and murdered en mass and with government sanction untold numbers of Aboriginal Australians. White people love to use the word "conquer" instead of what it actually is. Murder.

Whites are the invaders. They are quick to invade other peoples land and then whine about "Go back to yada yada yada" neglecting to mention the fact that anyplace outside of Europe where they dwell has been stolen. If you want to stop hearing people b@#$h about you, YOU go back to Europe and tell whites that if they want such a homogenous society, BUILD IT IN EUROPE and stop forcing yourselves into places where you don't belong. http://politic365.com/8-things-white-parents-...

Promoting hatred, violence and murder, will do absolutely nothing to deter human beings, living in dire and dangerous conditions, from wanting and yearning a better life for themselves or their children, from immigrating.

If somebody said something you disagreed with, that person is not a hater.
If somebody said something mean about your story, that by itself doesn't make someone a hater.
If we feel like someone is constantly reporting non-haters for being haters, well, then... that's hating. http://www.missliterati.com/p/hateraid#.US4em...

True power doesn’t come from bullying others. People...won’t respect you if you can’t control yourself or handle opposing viewpoints.

Do you believe that your way is always right and get angry when others disagree? If you have a strong need to be in control or a fragile ego, you may interpret other perspectives as a challenge to your authority, rather than simply a different way of looking at things.

We get angry when a current event brings up an old unresolved situation from the past.

In the past few years, there have been successful campaigns against those who ignite racially charged and bigoted statements against the immigrant population. A few years ago, several national advocacy organizations, like the National Council of La Raza (NCLR)—a civil rights group representing 300 affiliates nation wide—launched the successful Drop Dobbs campaign against CNN host Lou Dobbs. This effort focused on encouraging advertisers to no longer support The Lou Dobbs Show. Dobbs hosted a nightly program with a focus on U.S. immigration. On top of his own anti-immigrant rhetoric, he allowed guests with similar views to publicly make statements that ignited, what the NCLR, Media Matters, and the SLPC called,“a toxic climate in our communities.” If this was not enough to provoke a response from these advocacy groups, Dobbs later broadcasted his radio show from Capitol Hill as part of FAIR’s anti-immigrant “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” lobbying conference and rally.12 The Drop Dobbs campaign was so successful that in 2009 CNN released him from his duties as a primetime host and his show was canceled.http://www.nacla.org/ news/2011/12/30/undocumented-n ot-illegal-beyond-rhetoric-imm igration-coverage

You are right and I hope all of those who support illegal aliens will see that crying racist and hater just because people do not agree with rewarding criminals and believe in protecting the severity of this nation and its citizens. I am amazed how much anger and racism comes from illegal aliens and their supporters. I think it comes from the fact that deep inside they realize that they are wrong. They know that demanding what they do not deserve, lying, stealing and harming others and taking from others is wrong no matter what excuses you use.

lou dobbs was not "anti-immigrant". he was "anti-ILLEGAL".

I don't know if CNN did as you say. I will look into it.

but what you need to understand is - being ILLEGAL means AGAINST THE LAW.

citizens from other countries coming into america ILLEGALLY and demanding stuff from us is not right, and should be punished.

illegal aliens are not suppose to be here. PERIOD.

Virtually none of the students had any say in their parents' decision to bring them to the United States. They are bright enough and ambitious enough to qualify for college — exactly the kind of immigrants the nation prizes. Texas, and the nation, are better off if they're educated and productive members of society. http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/opinion/e...

Unauthorized immigrants don't pay into Social Security UNLESS they have ILLEGALLY obtained a Social Security Number that BELONGS TO someone else.

Your efforts to help the plight of the unauthorized immigrant, is only making matters WORSE, by pointing out the OTHER ILLEGAL activities they are involved in.

DOBBS: One, we have to stop this nonsense that we're going to regularize our borders. We're in a war on terror. For the million illegal aliens or so, whatever estimate you want to use, who cross that border, any one of which can be a terrorist. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0705/0...

Terrorist could attempt to bypass legal procedures and enter the United States surreptitiously.
