<quoted text> the bottom line is that no matter who's president illegal aliens will never get amnesty because Americans won't let it happen. Obama won't do shit about illegals all he's doing is going on t.v. and making it seem like he's doing something so that he can blame republicans later for not allowing amnesty to pass just like he did in his first term . latinos voting for Obama because he will give amnesty to illegals now that's funny,the Washington post having a survey in which the majority of 1,023 people are in favor of amnesty and then saying the entire American population feels the same way is funny as hell.
Fasten your seat belt. Exit polls showed 70% of people favor a path to citizenship. The Republicans have decided that the anti-immigrant crowd is a drag on their party and they are now in favor of immigration reform. You are now part of a group that has no political support.

lie,lies and more lies exit polls are bogus and republicans have not caved in are you kidding me. There will be no amnesty,ice will continue to deport and Obama will change the subject or blame no amnesty on republicans. This whole exit poll and survey thing is laughable why don't We vote on it and see what happens? Let's have a popular vote to determine the fate of illegals and see how wrong you are? Your a delusional p.o.s get out of my country.

you make it sound like the 70% came from surveying 200 or 300 million Americans . Asking 1,500 anchor babies how they feel about illegals in this country and 70% of them say they support amnesty dosent mean they speak for all Americans.

You make it sound as if Hispanic people are still the ones coming into the country illegally.

That is a thing of the past. Currently more Asians come into the country illegally than Hispanics.

Now what were you saying about Asians?

Here is a fun fact for you. Everybody knows that Hispanics voted for Obama by a 71 percent to 27 percent margin.

Troglodytes attribute this to the immigration issue.

What many people overlook is that Asians voted for Obama by a 73-26 margin.

It seems the Asians and Hispanics have more things in common than you thinkk they do.
Open Letter to John Gibson,Shawn Hannity,John Boehner,Luis V. Gutierrez & Lindsey Graham

11/9/2012

The gentleman I've listed above are advocating amnesty for the 12-20 million (wag) illegal aliens in our country . I strongly disagree with their position for the following reasons.

In 1986 President Reagan signed off on a bill granting amnesty to 1 1/2- 2 Million illegal aliens, today I wonder how many more of their family members are here now because of the Chain Immigration policy in place?

In the past 26 years since President Reagan signed that bill, because of politicians like Congressman John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez and Senator Lindsey Graham who have none nothing to help control our borders except to stick their finger in the dike to appease the voters at home,12-20 Million more illegal aliens (wag) have entered our country and now because the finger caper didn't work their solution to the problem is amnesty.

The message that people like Sean Hannity , John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez & Lindsey Graham are sending to immigrants around the world is that if you can enter our country illegally without getting caught and hide out for another 26 years, then sooner or later another amnesty will be granted.

Case in point, a large number of American Hispanic voters including Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez have again rally their support for amnesty, and are using their vote to blackmail the Democrats into granting it. My question is what are those Hispanic Americans basing their support on?

My answer is it's based on the fact that a large number of the illegal aliens are also Hispanics which would appear to make their support based on race.( Google some of Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez's comments on the subject).

Now if I say I don't support amnesty because it's wrong then those same people yell "Racist".

We currently have no control of immigration into our country, yet continue to allow in around 900,000 legal immigrations a year, and now John Gibson,Shawn Hannity,John Boehner,Luis V. Gutierrez & Lindsey Graham want to add 12-20 Million illegal aliens to our population which is now around 315 Million.

My question to John Gibson, Sean Hannity , John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez & Lindsey Graham that support amnesty is how many more immigrants legal & illegal entering our country will make you happy?

My closing comment is that violating our immigration laws should not be rewarded with American Citizenship, it's worth more than that! Just because you can walk across our borders or swim / wade across a river doesn't give someone a place at the head of the line here. The line for those people starts inside the border of their own country.

To compound the problem, under the 14 Amendment we have around 300,00 new American Citizens a year born in our country to just illegal Hispanic women, and yes John,Shawn , John B.,Luis & Lindsey a lot of them walk or swim/ wade across our border to have those babies.

Illegals by Race or Country

Mexico continued to be the leading source country of unauthorized
immigration to the United States (see Table 3).

There were 6.6 million
unauthorized immigrants from Mexico in 2010, representing 62 percent
of the unauthorized population.

The next leading source countries
for unauthorized immigrants in 2010 were El Salvador
(620,000), Guatemala (520,000), Honduras (330,000), and the
Philippines (280,000).

The ten leading
countries of origin represented 86 percent
of the unauthorized immigrant
population in 2010.

The number of Mexican-born unauthorized
immigrants increased by 2.3
million between 2000 and 2007 and
decreased by 340,000 between 2007
and 2010.

Changes in the unauthorized
population were much smaller
during either period for other leading
source countries.

That's what happens when you only poll the Democrats! LOL!!!

And why would Americans want to give 6.5 Million Hispanics (wag) the right to vote!

I mean look what they've done to their own countries.

Alot of you guys are hard workers and that's admirable. But employers have a responsibility here too. I say that instead of taking the cheap, easy and illegal way out they should invest some time in developing American workers. I know their pat reply,"Americans are too lazy or they refuse to do certain jobs". But I know that isn't true. I worked pipeline construction and every year the big bosses would send their wimpy little sons over to me for a summer job so they could make some money for college. They all tried to use their connections and just slide through. But I kicked their butts and made them work like dogs. They resist for a while but eventually they start getting pretty good. When they finally get to the point where you compliment them, they get better yet. That happened every time but once, can't win em all. The point is, we have alot of kids that aren't qualified to do anything but manual labor. They deserve those jobs and they will be good workers if someone kicks their butt and teaches them what is expected of them. Employers have that responsibility. I hope you're one of those good workers that will teach our youth how to do things. If we don't do that as a country, we will be creating a dangerous gang of unemployed youth.

When you hear "the time is right for amnesty", you can be sure its coming from the megacorporations that will benefit most from slave labor. When you see Hannity and Krauthammer supporting amnesty, it's because they're trying to please their neocon boss, Ruppert Murdock. Brown nosers. When you see neocon idiots like Boehner, Graham, McCain, Bush, Toomey etc. etc. supporting amnesty, they're just paying back their neocon contributers and working on getting good press from the corporate media. It has nothing to do with compassion or what's right because it isn't compassionate or right. And it certainly isn't what the American people want.

You are right. Those advocating for Amnesty have not a shred of compassion, it's all about money. Compassion should be expressed for those Americans who have lost their jobs,homes,savings,pensions,et c. Hannity surprised me, I never would of guessed him being in favor of Immigration Reform knowing full well the negative impact an open border(chain migration)/Amnesty would do to our country/jobs/spending/budgets, etc. This is the reason we must be in tune with who speaks what, why and who their associates are, that way we can choose the right person to represent the American people(true patriots).

Here is a thought, Texas has the land, and the gas. Texas also has access to global markets by sea and if Mexico makes a deal the US industrial market is already there.
California may be pretty, but it is morally corrupt. The Fast & Furious will be discussed at the United Nation soon.

The convention in North Carolina has set the ball into play.

You're right. But I don't think you should be too surprised about Hannity. He keeps his nose closer to Murdocks butt than NASCAR bumpers on a superspeedway.
