There was never a question of this bill passing the Senate. Everything was fixed to assure passage of this amnesty from the selection of the gang of 8 to the closed door negotiations that allowed lobbyists to write the bill. This article is just our corrupt medias contribution to the con.

As always. Why should this Legislation be any different than every other piece of Legislation Lobbyist craft which comes out of the Senate?

We will have to vote to replace them ALL a couple of different election cycles to get legitimate "representation" from at least 90% of the politicians in Washington.

I will support a good immigration bill as long as it secures the border, punishes the illegal immigrants that are already here, forces them to go to the back of the line, pay taxes and penalties, requires background checks and to learn the English language. Those that don't need to be here. Beyond that non- citizens should not be legible for benefits paid for by citizens.

I'm more concerned with the pressure cooker carrying Jihadists that seem be be left in the background when someone mentions illegal immigrants.

The wet backs are mostly mild family people. The Jihadists are violent people meant to do harm to Americans.

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.
right he is just telling ppl what they want to hear.no reform hes not even involved.he just said what he had to coz he wanted votes now hes done he leaves it to the republicans to kill it.and they will trust me who cares if they dont get hispanic votes

Once, Republicans said
"47% of Americans donot pay taxes", and
"47% of Americans are tax-eaters".

[2]
By the way,
almost all of Illegal-Aliens' wages are lower than any one of Americans.

So, companies want to hire illegal-Aliens.

[3]
That is,
if you accept illegal-aliens,
then those illegal-aliens become tax-eaters.

Because, illegal-aliens' wages are lower than any one of 47%-Americans.

[4]
You are lying.
You are deceiving ypur own American-people.
You are violating PATRIOT-Act.
You are violating American-constitution.

[5]
So.

The 47% of Americans have been paying taxes.
The 47% of Americans have NEVER been tax-eaters.

THEN.
Republicans must apologize to 47% of Americans.
Republicans must change its tax-policies.

The U.S. must decrease the gap between the rich and the poor.
Tax the rich.

You said
"Low-wage-workers have not been paying taxes".

And, now,
you are accepting illegal-aliens, whose wages are far lower than American-low-wage-workers.

Americans must anger.
Your politicians, media, and economists are useless.

Fire them.

In short, Republicans (and Democrats) are now trying to invite tax-eaters from foreign-countries, and are now trying to cut American-people.

Am I right?

<quoted text>How are illegals Americans? They aren't so again you are clueless. Bottom line the damn goverment doesn't inforced the lwas already on the books and you think by adding more it's going tomake a difference.
??? I guess you haven't seen my posts were I stated that we don't need new laws. Simply enforce the laws already on the books. The laws I am referring to are the laws against hiring the illegals. Reagan made it clear that he would not enforce those laws and millions flooded across the borders to take jobs at less than min wage, with no taxes for either the illegal, nor the corporation. The corporations hired these new millions and gave gigantic bonuses to the CEOs who in turn hired lobbyists to control politician and write laws favorable to themselves.

You may hate the illegals, but I understand their situation and I have empathy for their position. I do not have empathy for the CEOs who want bigger and bigger bonuses by hiring these illegals. If we simply overturned Reagan the jobs would then be filled by Americans, reducing unemployment, and the illegals would go away.

I don't know where you get your opinions.

I agree, but I don't see it happening. The corporatists have control of the media, control of the politicians, control of the laws, control of most of the money, control of the ballot counting boxes, control of what is reported about the elections. Even if the people found and voted for a "representative" politician, the USSC would simply void the election and install the corporatist.

There is much baggage in the terms liberal and conservative.

From my point of view, those who are democrat are not liberal, they are far right. The republicans are even further right. The GOP has swung to the extreme and the democrats have moved right to pull in those conservatives who are not happy with the results of the fanatic policies of the GOP.

The democrats are now being fed the propaganda that for some strange reason it is important to keep all the illegals here employed and happy, while Americans can't find jobs, and salaries are decreasing and benefits are being eliminated.

It is simply a corporate ploy to further flood the labor pool and let market forces reduce the cost of labor, providing bigger bonuses to the CEOs.

The corporations who own the government are happy with this plan, but it puts the GOP in a bad situation. The illegals, if they get legalized, would never vote for a republican. The GOP while being ordered by their corporate owners to keep letting the illegals come in, want the illegals to stay illegal, because the corporations can pay them less than min wage, pay no taxes for their employment, and can hold the illegality over their heads for compliance with the corporations over safety laws. The corporations like this even more.

We aren't going to enforce the laws on the books, and we aren't going to enforce the new ones. This is an exercise in futility so the Democrats can register the illegal aliens to vote before 2014. The problem for them is they have angered all those thousands of people who stayed home in 2012, and some Democrats sit out the off year elections. Also there is no guarantee the illegals will go the poll to vote. They really just want to come out in the open, and not be deported, but they don't feel any loyalty to this country. I think this whole thing will be stopped dead in the House of Representatives. They might not even bring t up. Kind of like Reid holds all the Jobs bills hostage.

Islamic Terrorism caused the downing of TWA 800, and everyone knew it, but Clinton lied, and pretended it was an accident. Everyone knew he was lying, but he sure as hell didn't care. The truth isn't in a Democrat.

In 1997 Clinton was handed Osama on a silver platter from the Sudan, but he did nothing. Now it turns out that TWA 800 was terrorist act and Clinton did nothing about that either. Makes you wonder why Dems always vote for Thugs?
