Congress sees immigration overhaul this year; Obama will make pitch in Las Vegas speech

Jan 27, 2013 Full story: Reno Gazette-Journal 487

Republican and Democratic lawmakers were cautiously optimistic Sunday that a long-sought overhaul of the nation's immigration system that includes a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the country will clear Congress this year, the result of changes in the political landscape shown in November's election.

VERY disappointed in Rubio's position on amnesty. Makes me sick. Why do all these politicians INSIST on doing things to benefit illegals? What is so hard about understanding they were elected to represent US, yes, US, U.S. citizens. Why do they constantly want to take money from us and give it away to foreign nations and benefits for illegals? I don't get it. I seriously think it is such an appalling illegal and unconstitutional offense that it should be punishable by ***, just as treason is. i'm serious. These politicians need to be sent a clear message - they represent us! Damnit. What the hell is wrong with them? Democrats are, of course, hopeless. But I was counting on Republicans and so many of them are spineless clueless ***s who think "compromise" is so important. Compromise is only a good idea when you are looking at two pretty decent ideas. But when the ideas from liberals (aka amnesty) are idiotic and unconstitutional and illegal - you don't compromise. That's like walking up to a scene of a car accident and there's a conservative and a liberal there - the C wants to put out the fire and the L wants to throw 10 gallons of gasoline on the fire. Do you really want to compromise and throw 5 gallons on the fire? It's insane, yet the media constantly talk about how the public wants compromise, and no we don't! We want to see intelligent decisions and thought-out plans that will work. Gun control, for example, has failed all the time. Out of 40,000 cases in NYC, only one of them involved a legal arm. As for the Newtown incident, the shooter disobeyed 41 gun laws, who is so stupid to think a 42nd law would have deterred him? Really? Or how 'bout this factoid... with only one exception, all "massacre shootings" since 1950 have been committed in gun-free zones. The Batman shooter didn't choose the theatre closest to his residence, or the largest theatre, he had a choice of a dozen theatres, and he chose the one that posted the sign "Gun-Free Zone" - case closed. A gun-free zone and cities with strictest gun laws are a killer's playground. What is it about that that a liberal can't understand? Oh, and for the record, the other countries that confiscated guns... exterminated 56 million of their citizens afterwards.
Wake up America. Are you really all that stupid?(Answer - yes, half the country is braindead morons!)

FIRST, A FEW LAWS FOR OUR SENATORS/CONGRESSMEN...
If you support/propose any legislation that spends our tax dollars to benefit illegals in any way at all, I think you should lose your job, lose your citizenship, lose your pension, have your assets seized, and be deported! Where in the constitution does it give you the right to confiscate my income to give it to illegals? You took an oath. Live up to it. Represent us, not illegals!
NEXT, TO KEEP ILLEGALS FROM COMING IN
If I were in charge, I'd paint a 1/4 mile wide line in the sand at our border and give orders to shoot to kill anything within it... with armed guards, unmanned drones, and airforce. And quite frankly, after a week of that policy being implemented, the flow of illegals would stop. Show them we mean business, and the body count really won't be that high. The threat of force and serious consequences is all it would take. Right now, it's a catch/release at best - most the time, it's a "look the other way." Another thing - attach a $25,000 invoice to each of the bodies and dump them on the front lawn of the Mexican government.
NEXT, TO GET ILLEGALS TO LEAVE -(I'm tired of liberals idiotically whining about how it's impossible to round up illegals and deport them... it's not necessary!) if an employer is caught employing a single illegal, that employer would lose his citizenship, be deported, and all his assets would be seized. Next - kids need to bring proof of citizenship with them to be enrolled in school. Hospitals - Sure, we'll treat the sick and injured, as the compassionate people we are, but send the hospital bill plus a $25,000 penalty for each illegal we treat. One more thing - all the trash along the border - dump it on the lawn of the Mexican govt and charge them for the clean-up. Lastly, how will we ensure payment from the Mexican government for all that I've described? With serious threat of nuclear bombing of their largest cities for each week their full payments are not received. After one bomb is dropped, I bet they won't miss any payments! Also, quit the stupid practice of giving Mexico billions in aid! Illegals already cost our country $100 billion a year - and our politicians cost us more by giving Mexico billions in foreign aid.

Illegal aliens have been given seven amnesties and all of them only caused more illegal aliens to flood into our nation.

the citizens of this country are being used! Those of us who worked most of our lives and who contributed to the funds for Social Security and Medicare are now being robbed to pay for illegal aliens who are defrauding Medicare and the Social Security. We do NOT need to be giving out amnesty!

When I heard Rubio say
that most of the invaders that were here were probably going to be here
for life. I had to shake my head in disgust. Why is that? The only
reason why they will stay, is if they are allowed to. Arizona made them
leave, Alabama made them leave, Georgia made them leave, President Eisenhower made them leave and so with the political will, they will also be made to
leave. Why should they be rewarded for invading and colonizing our
country? That's just it!! They shouldn't. Greta talked about the large
amount of Hispanics. Hell, they're only 14% of the population and that
includes their illegal family members. I will NOT vote for anyone, or
any party that panders and supports the la raza invasion and
colonization of our sovereign country.. I view this as treason!!

Do these RINOs dare to think, illegal aliens and their future family members will somehow start voting for conservative principles once they're granted amnesty?? Just look at the product of the Reagan's amnesty from hindsight. Not only did he make 3 million liberal democrats instantly in '86, he unintentionally caused the birth of such racists and radical pro-immigration groups such as La Raza, MecHa, LULAC, MALDEF, etc, etc, etc who constantly demand more amnesty and support traitors like Obama and Biden to name a few.
Reagan's amnesty was supposed to be a one time only pardon but with the agreement that our southern borders with Mexico would be properly secured once and for all. Reagan kept his end of the bargain but the democrats failed in their promise to properly secure the border, again! Reagan took a gamble and trusted the left out of his compassion but history has proven it was one of his few really bad ones.

Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me!!

The house has not spoken yet. The senate is controlled by democrats who want to flood the country with illegal aliens. You notice there is no talk of law enforcement.

Any bill that comes out of the senate and goes to the house where it will pick up conditions like closing the 14th amendment birthright loophole, national E-Verify 100% of all employees and deporting any and all illegal aliens the government comes in contact with. Plus requiring a SS number to register for school. Any DUI by a illegal alien is a felony, procession of false documentation a felony and deportable offense.

Those are just a few.

"closing the 14th amendment birthright loophole". Huh?

You consider a Constitutional Amendment to be a "loophole" that needs to be abolished, but then you make it sound like the end of the world if somebody else commits a civil infraction. You have zero tolerance for that, but the Constitution? Who cares about that thing?

You have to make up your mind. Laws are either important or they are not. You just can't choose which ones you think are important.

Stop debasing the Air Force.

The Constitution is supposed to be for American citizens and the U.S., not the rest of the world. Especially not for illegal aliens who have no repect for any law.

Interesting. Now where did you study Constitutional law? Maybe you should see if you can get your money back.

I agree that many people who are here illegally/undocumented are criminals, but it's wrong to put us all in the same basket. I am here undocumented, but I had absolutely no choice in the matter - I came here legally, applied to stay, my attorney screwed up big time, my application was rejected, I found out over a year later despite contacting the state bar and the then INS, by that time I was here undocument, now my country won't take me back despite that I have absolutely no criminal record. I have no family to turn to, I have NEVER asked for any kind of assiance here in the US, I had a job which I got legally until recently when the business closed down, and i'm still labelled as a criminal by all of you!!!!!
