The things being said about the illegals from south
of the border are the same as said about the Irish
immigrants in the middle of the 19th Century.
That old canard never changes.

What has really hurt unions is the exportation
of millions of jobs. Like Romney did. Whole industries
packing up and moving lock, stock and barrel to China or
India or even to Mexico.

O SLUMPS TO 44%...
Will: President scarily detached from reality...
I wonder if he will sink to 22% like Bush did.
Biden to 13% like Cheney did.

But what the hey, it's his second term and he has no need

Sadly, today the NYTimes revealed that the Dems side included funds for ACORN under a new name in the Bill. Harry Reid is doing everything in his power to make the Bill impossible to pass. Very sad. Guess Obama was never really serious about Immmigration Reform or he would have made Reid the others create something which could pass.

Its already said that if this Bill passes the House, then wages for American Citizens go down and up for Illegals.When Obamacare takes place, Illegals can't have, so employers don't have to pay fine. In that case Americans will lose their jobs. This is only good for illegals and Business owners.Illegals go home, your'e ruining America - along with Obama.Democrats said in 1986 they'd secure the Border if we gave Mexicans Amnesty, in 2006 they said we'd build the fence. They lied both times. Now at least we know its another lie. So secure the Border and build the fence first!!!!!

These lo info voters will be pretending the IRS, NSA, DOJ, and Benghazi scandals mean nothing all the way to the Impeachment trial. They have to be completely stupid not to see the obvious connection to the secret communication systems, and Obama's hand in all the scandals. They must never read a paper. Even the lefty papers are aghast at the Socialist approach to government.

No one wants Compromise, what we want is the Border proporly Secured.

There will be no compromise. The criminals will keep coming through the open borders, and even those who came legally with visas will be allowed to stay after their visa's expire. They have closed their eyes to every criminal element in the world, and we are supposed to re elect them in the next few years.

The Democrats, and RINOs have debated this bill to pieces. It won't pass the Senate. They need 60 votes, and they don't have them.

Wages won't go for ILLEGALs though. They will continue to work under the table off book once they realize the taxes that come along with citizenship. Look at the number of Americans already working for cash only. They get higher wages or benefits in that they can take full advantage of social welfare programs. Most of their employers or the type of employer they deal with won't pay above board so little to nothing will change.

The path to citizenship should include taking into account every false, fake or stolen name, address and social security number they ever used or every falsified or misleading document they ever filled out. The path to citizenship should be for those who showed they can follow the law. But once they cross the border unofficially they did not follow the law.

If the U.S. continues to bleed trade-deficit and current-account-deficit,
the U.S. needs immigrants forever.

American-Politicians donot work ther jobs and their duties.
American-Politicians, American-Economists, and American-media are useless.

If you really want to fix Immigration-problems,
the U.S. must have huge-trade-surplus and huge-current-account-surpus.

[2]
Yes.
If you accept immigrants, then pension-problems and fiscal-problems will be solved ONLY temporarily.

[3-1]
Please imagine.
The U.S. as an insurance-company.

The U.S. cannot pay insurance-payments and pensions to its customers.
So, the U.S. now is luring new-customers.

The U.S. now is trying to pay insurance-payments and pensions to its customers
by divert new-customers' initial-membership-fees.

[3-2]
In companies, in business-world,
this is illegal.
You are violating laws.

[3-3]
If you collect money from customers,
if you donot invest this money,
and if you divert this money to other-customers' payments,
the you will be charged of fraud.

[3-4]
Both in Insurance-companies and in company ltd.,
this is a crime.

[4]
And, now, your American-politicians are doing exactly the same thing.

American-politicians are diverting Investment-opportunities from your (and their) commpanies.
This is strictly illegal.

COMPROMISE??? Are the Senate Dems at WAR against the American People? Why are Democrats AGAINST BORDER SECURITY.
Is this a War? Are Democrats warring against Americans so WE are forced to compromise???

Aren't they committing TREASON by standing with Illegals against Americans merely for percieved future political support of the foreigners?

I must have been in a Coma. I didn't realize that today's Democrats were America's enemies within????
