RNC Calls for Immigration Reform, but No Pathway to Citizenship

Aug 16, 2013 Full story: WAPI-AM Birmingham 484

The Republican National Committee passed a resolution Friday calling on President Obama and Congress to pass immigration reform legislation before the end of the year, but it did not include a pathway to citizenship for any of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country, unlike the bipartisan legislation passed by the Senate in June.

He'd give some convoluted answer, and your head would spin trying to figure out what the heck he was saying. The truth of the matter is they want their votes and in return they will gift them with citizenship and freebies...this adminsitration delights in seeing this country become a third world cesspool. We now allow behaviors that were once considered wrong to be the new right. Criminals and lawbreakers have more rights than law-abiding citizens. Look at all the tax evaders in this administration...Obama surrounds himself with people of equal character. Chicago politics in the White House...horrific.

When has working for a living been compared to robbing banks. The fact is working for a living has always been a highly regarded trait.

Illegal aliens are the scum of the earth. They deserve no compassion or understanding. They are not supposed to be here. They do not belong here. They need to sneak their way back to where they came from and quit whining about how badly they are treated by the people they are invading.
Nobody is whinning - except you

Tell you boy Rafael Cruz to go back to Canada where he belongs. Don't need no crazy Canucks here.

The kind of "working" they do is wrong when they knowingly break into a country, and knowingly use false or stolen documents to undercut an American from his or her job...the jobs that Americans needed to feed their families. Stealing, lying and cheating are not admirable traits.

I never said that sneaking anywhere was a trait. So stop with your attempts to twist what I do say.
Work is an honorable trait and always has been.
Coming here without documentation is a civil offense. Rather like when you go over the speed limit. Does that make you a scum....I don't believe it does anymore then it makes those here undocumented one.

Remember "Stealing, lying and cheating are not admirable traits." They aren't admirable no matter who the ones are that are doing it. But to take a job offered to you isn't stealing, lying or cheating.
We have a massive amount of people that are retiring. Those are the people that used to do many of those jobs. Not so much our younger generation. The younger generation is one of entitlement mentality. They both don't want to do the hard, hot work they simply can't take it. Many of our young adults will by pass an available job because they don't want to do that type of work. You can deny this fact all you want but it doesn't change the fact that we have a problem because of this. I know that we always have exceptions but the majority are as I said.
By the way the only reason that business can give those people less money is because the undocumented don't have a lot of choice. So they work for what they are given.

When you enter a country Illegally and take ANY job, you are not only breaking the law but you are distorting the free market that this country used to operate on. As long as the idiots in government allow these lawbreakers to subvert our free market society, the rich will continue to get richer and the poor will continue to get poorer. Both parties suck, but the Democrats suck much worse on illegal immigration.

Wait a minute here, if they do not have the proper paperwork that gives them the right to claim said job, exactly what do you call it when they take jobs of which they are not legally privy to take? Of course, the employer is equally culpable and should be made an example of for such shady hiring practices. A workforce of liars and cheats only weaken a country. Do things that are shady, and getting away with it only emboldens one to do more shady dealings.

The illegal aliens knew the rules before they broke them. The knew before they trespassed that this land was not theirs. They knew before they packed their bags that they were traveling to another country. A country that asks it immigrants to follow rules. They knew the rules and they broke them. They are culpable for their own demise. They are the ones who stole their way into a land that did not invite them. They knew that they were cheating, evidenced by their sneaking. They also knew that they were lying as they failed to report all the income in their household when they claimed assistance from the legal residents of this land. The illegal aliens that you attempt to defend are cheaters, liars and thieves. They deserve no mercy. They deserve no amnesty. They deserve to die a horrible death. The death of liars, cheaters and thieves. But before they go, they need to know that their deeds will never be rewarded. They need to witness the deaths of their offspring and the enslavement of their grandchildren.
Yes! Work them in the fields! Work them as slaves so that those who might believe it is right to lie, cheat and steal will have due warning.
Kill all illegal immigrants and enslave their offspring. This is the only way to protect your posterity.

I agree we have to stop illegal entry. Having said that I also feel that it's the right thing to do to legalize those that have been allowed to work here for years and make America their lives. I know that you and some others don't feel the same way and I respect your right to your own views as I hope you respect my views.

They did have an unofficial invitation. For generations America has used their labor and never complained about them. The government has looked the other way for generations without real enforcement. Rather like an area that has a speed limit of 60 mph yet allows vehicles to go 70/80. You'll find few vehicles going 60mph.
So you want them to all be killed and their children be put into slavery. What happened Ral&& you never learned anything from the mistakes we made in the past. You want to go back to the good ole days. I think the illegals have already been working like slaves and used by this Country. But you want to kill them.
Why am I not surprised by your radical right wing Nazi style of thought processes.
You're a fine example of your type.

It use to be that working didn't need any documention. Yes many do use false SS#'s. That is the only way that they have been able to work unless it was to do so under the table. They also pay taxes and IRS is aware of it and they call SS in order to have the money they paid into SS taken out and put into the Expense revenue fund.
That's just lost money that they will never see in the future.
I know you don't believe this but many of those jobs that Americans need, they won't do. Those jobs used to be done by the baby boomers that are retiring. The younger generation is a generation of entitlement they don't like and won't do the hard work that immigrants do. Not to say that there aren't some that will do that hard work but not enough.
