All Japs, all Japanese-men, all Japanese-women, all Japanese-boys and all Japanese-girls except mental-patients must be drafted by Japanese-Forces now!

Economic-bubble must occur in Japan now!
Japan must have current-account-deficit now!
Japan must be a debtor-nation now!

Economic-bubble of the U.S. must crash now!

These can solve all problems which the U.S. now has.

The denial from conservatives is just outstanding. I guess trying to justify their delusion is better for them than to face reality, until he bubble pops. The reason that Latinos were such a big topic after 2012 is because the GOP faces extinction if it doesn’t improve its rates with Latinos. You GOP lovers don’t understand that it is mathematically impossible for the GOP to win an election at the rates of Latinos from last year alone. Latinos are the fastest growing demographic while the GOP’s only demographic is literally dying off. Immigration reform is the last nail on the coffin.
How can anyone claim “legal Latinos are against immigration reform”, For real? Have you lived under a rock on every single election? Have people not been following the overwhelming statistics that show otherwise? And many, upon many other Americans support immigration reform, mostly because it is economically sound since what we have now it is obviously not working. And your wet dream of deporting everyone is non-feasible, expensive, and self-harming.
This will hurt the GOP for a very long time, because once the balance is tipped too far on the Democrats side, there will not be an easy way to balance it out; locked out of the white house for generations to come. About congress, someone said that they only need control of congress. Here is the funny thing, while the GOP will win in 2014, the Democrats are very likely to outdo that victory in 2016, so no congress. If it takes 2016 so be it, but I would hope the GOP stops this circus now.

He's delusional. If the Republicans sign on to amnesty, they wont be around for the next election. Voters don't want immigration reform, we want implementation of the current laws and secure borders; then we talk reform!

who cares about the white house when you control congress. you can make Hillary look useless and unproductive. Hell its working now with just 1 house controlled by the R's
Harry Reid is the one making Congress unproductive, not the House. Reid refuses to bring any House passed bill to the senate floor, even if passed with bi-partisan support. If a bill doesn't make the R's look bad and the D's look good it refuses, We the People are never considered. Reid seems stuck on the Koch Brothers never mentioning George Soros. Our once great nation is going to hell in a hand basket

If being Hispanic in these regions is so great then why are MILLIONS slithering across our North American border to escape?

What part of this amnesty will not be just for "poor, Hispanics that came to work" don't you all understand? You do realize that under the Senate passed plan & Obama's proposed executive order that both the 9/11 hijackers and the Boston Bombers would be eligible...all were vetted by the government and given visas with no criminal charges until they blew-up Americans. Get a clue!

After reading this mans' ideas for the Chamber of Commerce, I discontinued membership because I realized he was anti-American worker. He should join La Raza and some of the other groups representing illegal aliens. He is only interested in cheap labor with no concern for Americans and legal immigrants. He is disgusting!

There's one tiny problem with your theory. A majority of Americans do want immigration reform.

The United states should seize baja California for all the money Mexico has cost us that and a few hundred drone attacks along the border ought to cool their jets, then when we deport all of them sterilize them all first shoot the ones in prison for life they are the feeble dregs of a decaying civilization anyhow
