Feb 8, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Capitol Hill Blue

For a president looking for a legacy piece of legislation, the current state of the immigration debate represents a high-wire act.

If immigration does not pass this year, thatīll be the end of Republican
ambitions for the next presidency.
John Boehner though has got a problem: His emotional weakness is
costing immigrants a real immigration deal: Obama is going to back downand sign an immigration deal nobody can call an amnesty,
and heīll go down in history as the president who talked a lot and eventually got nothing or just a very poor deal done while deporting lots of immigrants:
Guys: Letīs face it: Obama is a populist posing as a democrat, and if anyone in the immigration forum had any brains, theyīd shout it out
loud in order to get him to prove, that he is not a populist.
I believe. That he is a populist, and that whatīs going to be his legacy:
Obama wanted to go down in history as the president loved and revered
by everyone, but- boy will he ever miss that target with the minorities
in the country!
No pathway to citizenship and lots of talk about that populisdt president
who helped America more than anyone could`ve ever done by basically lying all the time about his oh so great democratic intentions.
American society is reverting to a two-tiered social system that is the
moden version of slavery.
Creating a two-tiered social system is going to spell trouble for the
political stability of the United States: But, hey, who cares for that, in
a country where even Obama only thinks about himself and his image
and just about any political thought being developed suffers from
short term memory.Itīs hard to say who is the bigger liar: Obama with
his high-held intentions and threats of acting on his own, or republicans with their bunch-of-baloney arguments about border-security.
Why not put immigrants into gas chambers right away?And then
go on to salute just like the did in Nazi Germany?

What type of Democracy is this? If congress, the house and the president all admits the immigration in U.S. is broken and none can use common sense approach to fix it within twenty hours then, they should close down the house, the senate and the office of the president because we voted them into those offices to work and fix our problems and since they cannot do the very job we voted them to do. they don`t deserve to be there at the expense of the hard working ordinary American tax money. Apart from we NATIVES AMERICANS everybody who now calls himself AMERCAN is illegal and should leave if they cannot legalize all the so call 11million human beings who are just like everybody else.

the only thing wrong with the immigration system we currently have in place is - IT IS NOT BEING ENFORCED.

as for your statement that there are 11 million human beings who are just like everybody else.. 1st, there are MORE then 11 million and 2nd, they are FOREIGNERS who are in the usa ILLEGALLY. they are NOT citizens. they are NOT the same. they are INVADERS. CRIMINALS who broke the laws of the usa.

frankly, I have this feeling YOU are one of them.

Obama is taking Boehner's amnesty slow down too good which leads me to believe that there was a back room deal to revisit amnesty after the election when everyone feels safe again. I remember that rat, Paul Ryan, was meeting with Schumer behind closed doors not so long ago. I'm sure they have plans to try amnesty again in the future. That's why everyone who supported amnesty should be voted out at the earliest possible opportunity.

these illegals are INVADERS. the only thing you do with INVADERS is you destroy them. one doesn't just give up and let them take your country away from you.

that's what this all about. pure and simple. colonization.

Amnesty is their plan and the only viable solution! It will surely come.

REAGAN:

I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and lived here even though sometime back they may have entered illegally.
-Ronald Reagan 10/28/1984

OBAMA:

No matter how decent they are, no matter their reasons, the 11 million who broke these law should be held accountable.

Everyone knows voting for Amnesty for illegal aliens is a loser if you are a Republican. They will be voted right out of office. If they wait until after the election they will not have the support they need. How can they justify rewarding lawless behavior anyway

That is right Jose, and the Right doesn't want to reward criminal behavior. What the Republicans are just now figuring out is if the TEA party people leave the Republican party, it becomes the minority party in a 3 party system, and will soon disappear in a 2 party system. There are still Americans who hold to their principles, and those principles make it impossible to make people who have no respect for the law legal citizens under any circumstances. You will remain hidden until you go home, and become legal.
