RNC Calls for Immigration Reform, but No Pathway to Citizenship

There are 484 comments on the WAPI-AM Birmingham story from Aug 16, 2013, titled RNC Calls for Immigration Reform, but No Pathway to Citizenship. In it, WAPI-AM Birmingham reports that:

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.

<quoted text>thought you said earlier that they could not get services because they are illegal ??? Now you say they are off the books and getting services .As I said : illegals still get benefits . Yes people know why their property taxes are high . Figure x amount of kids in school have to be paid for by those working but they go by numbers no who's kids they are . So people are working for people that are not on the books . per law they have to let the kids go to school not never as if they are citizens or not . How can they assume all the kids all legal and their parents are paying taxes for them to go to school?? The schools get more money for the numbers . So the school board and those high up can make their big bucks . and students do with bare minimum. We have to pay for special classes for illegals that cant speak English. These kids ubder 18 and will be taking jobs from US citizens and its going to get worse . More are coming everyday. They take jobs in factories , Any any place that will high them at a low wage you cant live on unless you get welfare and who pays for welfare the taxpayers the few that have good jobs . But even the poor pay a tax. they have no shelters . The CEOs are making big bucks by hiring the cheapest labor they can find. Illegals , because our Government lets them into the country. The boys in Washington do not care they are not subject to the laws they make . Ie Obama care they do not have it do not want it . I wonder why???? Cause it sucks!!!!!!!!!!They pay nothing for their healthcare . Taxpayers do.
The services I referred to and could not get are SS and Medicare. The services they are able to access are schools and the ER which cost tens of $$ billions.

<quoted text>Democrats or neocons will never secure our border. They will promise a lot of things but they will always have their loophole where they can wiggle out like the weasels they are. The Republicans had their chance to pass Everify but Boehner stonewalled it. If the Republicans don't get rid of the neocons, and their whole leadership is neocons, we will eventually end up with an amnesty and our middle class will disappear.
Securing the border is my first priority. The second is replacing cry baby Boehner

I don't think we have to accept it, we can and should be forcing CONgress to eliminate birthright citizenship to the children of non-citizens. The 14th was meant to cover slaves not illegal aliens who willfully cross our borders.
There is no section of the Constitution that is meant for only some people within the United States. The Constitution was written for all that inhabit this Country.

I don't disagree but the photos of crying families being separated will serve no one but Democrats who pander to to their future constituents and the LSM.
We got rolled when the Democrats promised Reagan to close the border. Let's make sure it never happens again.
Hey Adam the border is how it is, because of both parties not just the Dems.
When the past amnesty was passed it was an amnesty because there were no penalties given to those here illegally. What has been passed by the Senate does penilize them and it will be costly. They not only pay a fine they have to continue to pay for renewals of their papers staying in good standing without the option of changing status for many years.

The requirement to have a passport was done by the USA. America wants their citizens and permanent residents to travel using a passport no matter what Country they go to now.

<quoted text>Thing is they wont secure the border . They never have . Their just being here and not removed is telling others they can come . illegals have repeatedly crossed over and over again . Its a swinging door. My understanding is they don't count repeats. We gave in once in 1986 . so they think we will keep giving in they just have to be here when we do. That's why we have 30 million illegals now. Just been waiting . America is soft. More will get in any way they can and have anchors . The 14 Amendment needs changed we know what they are doing and why . They plan this . They use our laws against us. Make 30 million legal and you will soon have 60 million hop the fence to try to get legal. They never have to give up their home country citizenship . They can go back when ever they want . Their country will take them in. You really think 30 million illegals are working on farms????
I don't believe there are 30million illegals in our Country now. I believe it's more like 11 million. So what that they don't have to give up their citizenship to their birth Country.

The Dems refused to close the border after Reagan accepted their word on amnesty. I am opposed to granting citizenship to anyone who broke the law. The Senate bill does that, sorry.

DIsagree. The majority get paid off the books and never pay any taxes including SS but drain the system of services. And people wonder why their property taxes funding schools are high.
So where do you get your facts that the majority of illegals work off the books?

A 2005 UCLA study showed that a then-particularly weak economy in the state of California was the result of more than two million workers who were receiving their pay off the books without paying taxes.

That is 11 million illegal aliens who are looting and stealing from the citizens of our nation, whether they are working on of off the books or not.
Those that do hire them or give them shelter are aiding and abetting and giving comfort to INVADERS and there is no way in hell where you can spin that to make it not wrong.
They are ILLEGAL INVADERS any way you want to cut it.
They should be detained and deported. PERIOD,END OF STORY!
