Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said from the Senate floor, "I support this reform, not just because I believe in immigrants, but because I believe in America even more."
Rubio can't even call them what they are,"Illegal Aliens"!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"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."
--

Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in
years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and
into the sunshine of America"

Ted Kennedy -- Senator from Massachusetts

My prediction: there will be no immigration reform bill this year or the next three years. The illegal aliens will remain in the shadows. In 2016, the country will be in such bad shape the American people will elect a right-wing President who will start enforcing the laws, rounding up millions of the subhuman invaders and deporting them and using E-verify to make certain they can't find jobs. The plague well be over, the parasites removed.

Sounds like a winner. Unemployment, welfare and foodstamps numbers are growing everyday. Democrats support a welfare state. It's going to backfire.

Should this pass, epect the nanny state to become an even greater burden to taxpayers. It is incumbent upon us to notify our reps during their recess, to inform them that this action will never be in the best interests of Americans...epsecially for those who are out of work. Remind them of 2014...they too can be in the unemployment line should they fail to listen.

Pass the reform, or not, it doesn't matter. Nothing will change for the undocumented citizen.
