Poll: Majority Supports Path to Citizenship for Illegal Immigrants

Nov 14, 2012 Full story: KVOR-AM Colorado Springs 1,475

Most Americans support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, an issue that may be high on the agenda of newly re-elected President Obama and the 113th Congress, given the increased importance of nonwhites -- including Hispanic voters -- in the nation's political equation.

The Republicans held up relief legislation for Sandy which they believed was filled with pork. Apparently, they have identified the pork much to the chagrin and embarrassment of Representative King, and it is being whittled out of the bill as we speak. This is one of those times when you have to give credit to those Republican lawmakers whose eyes detected waste. Once that's removed, expect the bill to move forward and be passed quickly with funds that will be used directly for survivors needing assistance. Now, I don't have a link. I just read this information on another site.

BTW - this has nothing to do with Obama. Lose his name from the discussion on this matter. He can't sign anything until it's put in front of him to sign.

Isn't bowing to royalty something that all heads of state have to do. I know Obama bowed in front of the English Queen and Michelle courtsied. So why shouldn't he bow to the Saudi King?

And as for the national anthem, i also noticed he was the only one singing along. Does that mean the others are unpatriotic for now singing along?

I'm an American and no one asked me how I feel about illegal alien parasites in my country and I also didn't know that a bogus survey that only 1,023 people participated in speaks for all Americans. F%&k Obama and the Washington post. I say let's have a popular vote and see what happens and make sure all voter's show birth certificate and ssn and an state drivers license just to make sure there's no voter fraud. The number of Americans far exceeds the number of anchor babies and bleeding hearts who support amnesty.

nym8387 I can't believe how you have the nerve to call immigrants parasites...
First of all, that makes you the great great great grandchild of a parasite yourself honey.
Second, If you are in any slight way religious, spiritual or what else may you be, how about you open those blind eyes of yours and realize that everyone is human. We do not decide where we are born or to whom. It's people like you that have such hatred towards others and towards the world that are ruining it for the rest. Words are just as bad as actions, and hun, with your attitude, you might as well be on the same level as the Taliban. You have such hatred towards others, and are such extremists and set on nonsense beliefs. You're not better than the rest there, so don't doubt it for a second. If you knew anything at all, immigrants are what made this country, and are what's keeping it to its feet. Did you know that they pay 3X more than the average student, 2X more than the out of state students in college/universities, with no right to any aid. No food stamps either, or medical care if you were ever so misinformed.
Wake up. No immigrant is stealing your job either, unless you want to go be a dishwasher or a janitor, there may be some competition there.

What matters is that assholes like you need to realize that this world isn't going to become a better place like we hope it is unless and until attitudes start changing, philosophies start changing and the way you treat others starts changing.

We're all one. No one is different than anyone else. We all crave the same things in life.

Instead of seeing the differences in each other, how about you all see the similarities. I can bet that all of you at least like someone that is an immigrant and do not even realize it. Like as a person, or may even be friends with them.

Don't be cruel. There's enough of that in the world as we speak. No one's forcing you out of your home for your land. Don't be greedy there. & Besides, you live in New York? Then, you better move from there and go somewhere else, because that lovely state is filled with those parasites.

As for the National Anthem, there's no requirement to sing.

There is however one to salute the flag.

When the national anthem is played or sung, citizens should stand at attention and salute by placing their right hand over their heart at the first note and holding the salute through the last note. The salute is directed to the flag, if displayed, otherwise to the music. If in uniform, the person should salute in the formal manner. It is proper to salute wherever the national anthem is played, for instance, on a college campus, in a public park, in a church, at a ball game, sports event, etc.

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."

Ok ok - I concede there does appear to be a difference. I just found another clip where Obama meets the Queen and again he barely bows his head.

Doesn't mean I agree that he genuflects to the Saudi King, but I understand why you might think that.

I suppose the Queen is only a superficial monarch with no real political power. Whereas the Saudi king is head of state and of govt.

But you need to remember that Saudi has always been america's friend. Saudi Arabia is not your enemy, luckily. They could easily fund militancy in the arab world and cause problems for US interests. But it generally stays out of the conflicts.

Bush also had a great relationship with the Saudis, to the point that he chartered a plane for all the Saudi Bin-Ladens to be flown back to SA immediately after 9/11.

If Obama had done that, there would be accusations that he helped orchestrate 9/11.

more nonsense from another Mexican. Illegal aliens are parasites and legal immigrants have dignity. New York does have a lot of illegal aliens why do you think I'm talking about? Throughout your whole rant I didn't hear you talk about enforcing this country's laws,amnesty will never happen,get that through your head.

I disagree with you. I think you are the sheep. Middle class American voters who would vote against your own best interests in favor of further advantage for the wealthiest among us, made wealthier by thirty years of favorable and preferential tax and investment laws. I believe YOU are the sheeple.

In all those thirty years in which they have been advantaged, the average American worker's wages have stagnated and his benefits have declined markedly. That's not America. See it as you will. The end result is that we have the least amount of opportunity to elevate our birth stations of any first world nation. That's a fact. In the 80's, America was considered the number one country in which to be born in terms of living standard, quality of life, life satisfaction. Today, we are ranked number 16. Something has to change, and it certainly can't begin by further advantaging the wealthiest at a time when we already have the greatest polarity in wealth since the Great Depression and major and significant income inequality. You suit yourself, but I hope we find a way to get the influence peddlers out of Congress. They're killing free market capitalism with their predator ways.
