Yes, Immigration Reform Is Dead, Probably Until 2015 At The Earliest

There are 6 comments on the Outside the Beltway story from Oct 25, 2013, titled Yes, Immigration Reform Is Dead, Probably Until 2015 At The Earliest. In it, Outside the Beltway reports that:

It's been several months since the Senate voted, on a somewhat bipartisan basis, to pass a comprehensive Immigration Reform bill that included, among other things, provisions covering the status of people in the country illegally and a reform of the nation's guest worker program that would have legalized tens of thousands of migrant farm workers ...

amnesty is dead indefinitely.

the only way I see it possibly happening in the future is if we have a scenario where we don't have any americans unemployed, and the country is out of debt.

like what are the odds of that happening?

maybe when we start harvesting our own energy resources like australia is doing.

the fact is - the only people who want amnesty now are the pro-illegals and the illegals. and frankly, they don't care about america or americans. so, who gives a shit about them?

Republicans are merely trying to squeeze by without
resolving the 11- Million-people-problem, at least for this year. this is, because this year, ending on the number "13"is related to Saturn , which standsfor things like: Rocks, blockages,desasters,money as in currency... and actually also for the Republicans.
But 2014 is looming, and Republicans, just as like the Dems would be well advised to stop looking at the elections always and just get this thing done.
Of course it is a guaranteed fact, that Republicans might as well forget about just any foreign person´s vote, if they were going to continue to block this issue.
So-let´s see: what was the question again? Oh, yes
right, there´s going to be that perfect bill in
the spring of 2014. Unbelievable, this was. Suddenly a consensus had been found(I forget whether this was during or shortly after the passage.... of Boehners gallstones)-at any rate: everybody was acting like they were so surprised-that Republicans were actually capable of doing the math on their prospective election results but,
you know what? They were! Isn´t that amazing?
"You can be the champion-you can break rocks...."
dosen´t the Lliving in the hall of fame"-song
go that way? Well: there you go! If you´d ever
wanted to be a hall-of-famer, go and break your
nearest rock or Republican- whichever you happen to encounter first. It´s been done before: even a
heart of granite will eventually melt: all it
takes is an abnormal amount of pressure as well
as heat activated by political friction.

I thought about it long and hard whether you believe it or not.

allowing an amnesty that has no limits is not good for the usa.

allowing open borders is not good for the usa.

the key issue here is control of the numbers allowed to enter illegally.

anybody who has half a brain knows that the usa cannot survive if we allow unlimited numbers to enter. numbers like 100+ million would destroy the usa.

like I said, and repeat.. anybody with half a brain knows this.

..AND YET, when confronted with the question, "how many do you want to allow in uncontroled?" I have never gotten an answer from anybody. especially those who are illegal or pro-illegal.

it is a fact that if you allow an amnesty, you are essentially allowing an open amnesty that places no limits on the numbers that might want to come in because you would have no way to confirm who is telling the truth in their applications.

tell me I'm wrong.

If Democrats and neocons are so sure this bill is righteous and that the benefits and compassion this bill is supposed to result in are real, why would they put this thing off even for a day. What kind of representative would pass up the chance to do so much good. If they were being honest about the affects of this amnesty, they would try to pass it right before the midterm elections and get the electoral boost such a good and popular bill would bring. The reality is, this bill is unpopular and it will hurt the American worker, taxpayer and economy. Politicians will only try to pass this travesty if there's enough time to let people get over it before the next election. The fact that they won't act on this bill in an election year means that either they really don't believe this bill is good for Americans, which makes them liars, or they're afraid to do what they think is good for Americans, which makes them political weasels and bad representatives. This whole amnesty push is being scripted by elitists to benefit themselves at the expense of the American worker.

Amnesty should always remain dead when dealing with those who have no right to he here in the first place.
