The Democratic party along with the neocon leadership of the Republican made sure Everify didn't pass. There's a name for people like that but there are also rules against saying words like that on here. I guess we can just call them idiots and sugarcoat it.
Not to mention that businesses will simply refuse to participate, like the 50%+ of businesses in Arizona who refuse to comply with their e-verify law.

Absolutely, it should and would apply to all races/ethnic and national groups here illegally and rightly so! See I am not a hypocrite like you defenders of illegal aliens are.

Birthright citizenship will be re-interpreted soon. Mark my word.

Nope, we only hate the ignorant uneducated ethnocentric white Americans.
The rest of white America is fine.
Translation - we only hate white Americans and especially those who desire respect and enforcement of our immigration laws. One is uneducated, ignorant and an ethnocentric to want the rule of law upheld? Really? How do you look yourself in the mirror everyday making such racist, idiotic, anti-American remarks?

We don't have to get rid of the Constitution to re-interpret the true meaning of the 14th amendment on birthright citizenship. All it would take is for the SC to re-visit it. Most all countries do not allow birthright citizenship to the offspring of illegal aliens. One, or both parents have to be legal resident or citizen of their country. That just make sense.
Again, with the white people demonizing. Do you racists ever stop? I wouldn't advocate for children of white illegals to gain birthright citizenship either so you can stuff your accusations where the sun don't shine.
It's going to happen. It's only a matter of a short time now and you can take that to the bank. No more anchor babies. Buh, bye.
I cant wait for the birthright to be changed.yes it will happen.all these anchors would have to get lost .

That's kinda the whole point- it has ZERO chance of passing unless it's part of a comprehensive immigration bill which includes amnesty for the 11+ million illegals already here.
That's why I say it's simply not realistic to think those 11+ million are going to self-deport.
And I say there is no logic that says we must couple Everify with amnesty. The whole point of everify is to eliminate illegal aliens from our country so why in hell would we want to also grant them amnesty? It's like the other illogical argument "you guys" used to make saying " we need to pass comprehensive immigration reform so we can secure our border". What? Coupling amnesty with everify makes our immigration laws and everify meaningless. No deal.

Yeah, just like Obamacare was going to be overturned by the SCOTUS?

Your magic 8 ball is broken.

Btw, I support amnesty for all races/ethnicities, not just hipanics...

Etchy is the biggest scammer there is - hasn't paid any taxes in at least 10 years ...... why do you think he refused to release his returns?

Even people in his own Party are bitching.

Exactly, no deal.

Again, that's the point.

Without a deal, there will be no national e-verify and no self-deportation in any significant numbers.

The Dems absolutely will not allow a national e-verify unless it's part of a comprehensive immigration bill.

The GOPasaurs will eventually cave because of the increasing size of the Hispanic vote.

That's the big question, isn't it? Why does the GOP have to thumb their noses at our immigration laws and amnesty millions of illegal aliens with 23 million Americans out of work to gain the Hispanic vote?

"Amnesty" is not a verb.

Of course it can be. He just used it as a verb. It is short for granting amnesty. What's next? Are we going to start diagramming sentences over here?

Your concern for keeping America a white majority country is racist.

Also your support of "show me your papers" laws which will only be selectively enforced on Hispanic Amercans- or anyone who "looks illegal" is racist as well.

Yep, you're a racist.

Because Hispanics support amnesty for the illegal immigrants, whether those illegals are Hispanic, Asian, black, or even white.

In less then a year there will be an important election. If the Democrats elect more Congressmen, and Senators they get to have their Amnesty. If the Republicans elect more real Republicans they get to kill it. I am betting the idea of giving the illegal aliens their jobs, and the horrible mess that is Obamacare Republicans will do very well, very well indeed.
