" 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.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

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"

Member of the Democratic Party

We all know that lowering wages and increasing prices and demand for goods will help the economy for the wealthy. It is the poor and middle class as usual that will suffer as they see their wages shrink and quality of life decline.
Funny how they support the "greedy white Republicans" in their quest to use an influx of cheap labor to exploit the working class.

"I don't think there's any doubt that continuing with the same failed immigration policy that we have in the United States today will continue to hold growth down," he said. "We really need to get this country up to 3 or 4 percent growth...I think (not passing reform) keeps us in the 2 percent range. And for the benefit of everybody in America, we need to grow faster."

Man please!
Not using the energy assets that we have here in the U.S. is holding back the G.D.P. for one not for lack of immigration.

Simply being for some kind of immigration reform is one thing while actually supporting the Senate's absolutely atrocious immigration bill that just passed the Senate is an entirely different matter. There is so much outrageous crap hidden in almost every paragraph of the 1200 page so called immigration reform monstrosity that even a dumbed down low knowledge semiliterate gullible ho'bama supporter would even be appalled.

The piece of sh it bill was written by special interest groups, i.e laracist, etc., for the same special interest groups and pimped by the lying scumbag treasonous marxist socialist communist demoRatic politicians with some useful idiot misguided RINOs.
