Even if the new regulations were passed there is no guarantee people who jump the border like common criminals will honor the new law, or that the government that does not honor our current immigration laws will honor the new law. It is criminals providing cover for other criminals.

As long as amnesty is part of the plan it will never pass. No matter how much propaganda the pro-illegal groups put out there most Americans are not stupid enough to believe that granting amnesty to millions of criminals who have shown nothing but contempt for this country, is laws and its people will have anything but a detrimental effect on the country and the economy.

And yet there is open amnesty for the corporations who hire those illegals to reduce our wages and eliminate our benefits. Nor is there any penalty for corporations to hire lobbyists to further destroy our middle class by flooding the labor pool; and forcing the government to pay them to ship our jobs overseas. So just how long will it take for Americans to turn on the corporations and the lobbyists they hire and the politicians they purchased?

A lot of the Republican Senators who have temporarily sided with the open border treason lobby are apparently trying to kiss a little latino azz and will ultimately in the end vote against this piece of garbage immigration insanity bill knowing that to amnesty 20 plus million mostly future demoRatic latino voters would mean the end of the Republican party.

Either way, I hope it goes faster than the investigation into Benghazi.
You and your Benghazi. hat a joke you are.

IRS scandal proven fabricated after Rep. Cummings released all documents pertaining to this investigation.

Conclusion - a CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN SENIOR OFFICIAL AT THE IRS ORDERED THE AUDIT!

No White House influence whatsoever!!

Poor Issa - not on TV anymore talking shit as usual. Where is that fool? With his head up your azz to keep you company?

Benghazi? You twits still have nothing - but, like good little dogs, you follow your tails in circles.

What an azz you and your ilk have been shown to be.

Your fabricated IRS scandal is all but over. Didn't see the full transcripts released from Rep. Cummings yet?

If you did, you would know why Issa is so frekin quiet now. Because he's been exposed for the lying POS he always was.

Remember they just want to keep their jobs. If they think they will not be reelected if they vote for amnesty then there is hope. That is the only control the people have.

They (GOP) have no choice in the matter.

If they don't vote for immigration reform, they loose the Hispanic vote forever - not that they ever really had it, but currently less than 20% of Hispanics vote republican. They will never win a national primary with under 20% of the Hispanic vote, and they know this.

Without some form of amnesty, the GOP will for the second time in history loose the presidential elections 3 voting cycles in a row - only since FDR has this happened to republicans.

Besides, the only viable candidate they have to date would be Christie - the only republican to have any chance.

Rubio? Never happen - he has been all over the place with immigration, even putting a clause into current legislation that all illegals given amnesty MUST speak English - while at the very same time, making multiple ads while running for Congress in Spanish! What a hypocrite! Watch this nugget follow him around - forget him - he'll never consolidate the Hispanic vote.

Who else does the GOP have? Perry? He's an imbecile, and everyone knows this. I'm looking forward to seeing who the GOP frontrunners supposedly will be - good SNL material.

And he amnestied 3,000,000 of them.

Yeah, isn't that true! Grand Theft Issa went radio silent after getting his azz handed to him by Rep. Cummings! Won't meet with him, won't respond to requests - and the right wing loons here have nothing left to grasp onto.

Why are the Republicans allowing a proven
criminal like Issa investigate anyone?

Yep, he kicked the can down the road, just as every president after him. The dems want them here for votes, and the republicans are being pressured by business for the cheap labor. Kiss your unions goodby.
