Jan 27, 2013 Full story: Reno Gazette-Journal 487

Republican and Democratic lawmakers were cautiously optimistic Sunday that a long-sought overhaul of the nation's immigration system that includes a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the country will clear Congress this year, the result of changes in the political landscape shown in November's election.

but if you say it is just 11 million... think about it. that makes my argument stronger.
if obama cannot enforce the laws where 11 million illegals are concerned, how the hell is he going to force 300 million americans to turn over their guns?
we could use the same bullshit that you illegals are using to stay in the country... to prevent any of us from having to adhere to some bullshit law on gun control. you know... declare rights to privacy.
Hey nimrod, 300 million don't own guns.

Assault weapons should be banned. Remember Sandy Hook, stupid! As for the illegals, from the looks of things, they'll probably get some form of amnesty through the newly proposed bipartisan immigration reform laws. So get ready for your worst nightmare.

Menendez denies prostitution claims after FBI raid on donor's office

Published January 30, 2013

FoxNews.com

Sen. Bob Menendez on Wednesday denied allegations that he saw prostitutes while on trips with a campaign donor to the Dominican Republic, responding to new questions after an overnight FBI raid on the donor's South Florida office.

Fox News confirms that FBI agents removed items from Dr. Salomon Melgen's West Palm Beach, Fla., business during a raid that lasted several hours. Agents could be seen rifling through items in the office and carrying boxes out of the building.

It is unclear whether the raid is related to anything involving Menendez. But Menendez' office issued a statement denying the prostitution claims, while acknowledging he flew on Melgen's plane on three occasions.

I forgot.

English is not your native language.

Try looking up the word "amnesty" and learn the meaning.

Nobody has proposed amnesty since Reagan.

You can look him up too.

You might be surprised to learn he was not a Democrat.
DEMOCRAT Senator (I can't swim) Kennedy:

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

The "POOR" need to wait in line in their own country,not slip into ours in the middle of the night!

The inscription at the base of the Statute of Liberty concludes, "I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" It says nothing about welcoming people who bypass our entry doors by climbing walls, swimming rivers and sneaking under border fences.

Well then, it's also logical that the 2nd amendment has been made obsolete by rapid fire assault rifles like the AR-15.

So what is the point of this post? A guy who knows a guy got into trouble. Even your post says there is unclear if there is any connection.

Even if there was a connection why would any right winger care?

Your leader Rush Limbaugh was busted coming home from a weekend in the Dominican with a pocket full of Viagra for which he did not have a prescription.

Why is it that when el Rushbo gets caught red handed it is not a big deal, but when a doctor in Florida who knows somebody is accused of the same thing it is now a scandal.
