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.

If you against any kind of Amnesty, go to this website and register.
Google this: NUMBERSUSA .
Once you are registered, go to the "action board" to send free faxes to your state representative.
They are all typed up and ready to go, you just need to click your mouse to send.

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!)

If an ILLEGAL alien was able to stay in the US without criminal means and/or lying I can go with amnesty.
BUT if they used fake or stolen social security numbers, tax id numbers,green card/visa numbers or fake names etc they should not get amnesty because being here ILLEGALly is not the only CRIME they committed. If they lied on any government or corporate paperwork for anything to registering the kids for school or a credit card they should NOT get amnesty. No amnesty from income tax evasion. No amnesty from not contributing to social security and workmens comp etc. No amnesty for ANY crime other than ILLEGAL residency in the US.
If you want to give them amnesty for residency status that's onething but NO amnesty from any CRIMES that were committed while being in the US ILLEGALly including FRAUD and/or ID theft.
Immigrants yes, CRIMINALS no (no matter the motivation or intent)
Very odd comment very odd indeed, since there HAVE been "Illegal" Aliens staying in the U.S., since 1620.

They will gain more American voters. I'am a democrat but i voted republican in Nov. Hispanics are 10% of the total vote, they should try and get the other 90%. Hispanics will never vote republican no matter what republicans give them.

"Reagan signed into law amnesty for three million illegals, called Simpson-Mazzoli. Now, according to the wizards in the Republican consultancy class, that should have meant droves of Hispanics voting for the next Republican in 1988.

Reagan got 37% and passed amnesty. We showed the Hispanics we love 'em, we cherish 'em, we care about 'em. We granted them amnesty. We gave citizenship to three-point-some-odd million of them in 1986. The next presidential election is George H. W. Bush in 1988. The percentage of the Hispanic vote that he got two years after amnesty was 30%. So '84, Reagan: 37% Hispanic vote.

Two years later, amnesty (which was supposed to really make us loved and adored and really supported at the polls). Two more years, 1988, George H. W. Bush loses 7% of the Hispanic vote from Reagan's '84 totalitarians."

yeah. I agree with you. it's is intolerant.

but that is the nature of laws. right?

you make laws to put in granite what is the right path to take. and if someone strays off the path that is described in the law, it is not tolerated.

there is no way that the usa can handle an open amnesty. you pro-illegals talk about 11 million illegals. but the amnesty doesn't restrict the numbers that may appear to apply for the amnesty.

open amnesty.

50 million. even more could and my guess would apply if another amnesty is approved.

no more...it would be suicide.

Education Gap
THE REALITIES OF EDUCATION IN LATIN AMERICA
Without a high-level education, Latin American children will continue to lack the skills necessary for entering the workforce and participating in the increasingly competitive global economy.
a.. 50 million people in Latin America cannot read or write.
b.. Latin Americans receive an average of six years of schooling, compared to nine-and-a-half years in the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) countries.
c.. Nearly one-third of children in primary school in Latin America repeat a grade. The additional cost to the region's education systems has been estimated at $4 billion per year.
d.. Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru rank behind Uganda, Zambia, Botswana and Burundi in the quality of their math and science education.
e.. In Mexico, only 13% of adults receive a high school diploma versus 87% of American adults.
f.. Over 50% of Mexican and Brazilian 15-year old youth are functionally illiterate and thus unable to compete in today's economy.
CONTRIBUTORS TO LATIN AMERICA'S EDUCATION CRISIS
1. HIGH DROP-OUT RATE THROUGHOUT LATIN AMERICA
The heart of the problem is the drop-out rate -- children living in poverty are not staying in school.
a.. 92% of Latin American children begin primary school, but only 32% continue on to secondary school (the U.S. equivalant of middle/high school). Even fewer ultimately graduate.
b.. Approximately 40 million children and adolescents in Latin America drop out of school to live or work on the streets each year.
c.. It is estimated that 95% of children have access to school in Brazil, but only 59% of them finish the eighth grade.
d.. It is well established that school dropouts have worse outcomes, including in terms of mental health status, than do those youth who stay in school.
2. INEQUALITY IN LATIN AMERICA
Unequal societies are less efficient at converting growth into poverty reduction. In Latin America, the education gap mirrors the income gap between rich and poor.
a.. Levels of inequality in Latin America are the highest in the world -- at least one in three households and two in five people live below the poverty line.
a.. 220 million Latin Americans (about 44% of the region's population)
live on less than $2 per day. Over half of them are children.
a.. In Brazil, children in the bottom income quartile complete an average of four years of school versus over ten years completed by children in the top income quartile.
3. LATIN AMERICA'S EDUCATION SPENDING
Despite increases in past years, spending on elementary education is still relatively low throughout the region.
a.. Per capita spending on primary education in Latin America still averages only 15% of U.S. levels.
a.. Latin American universities, which serve less than 10% of the population, receive a disproportionate share of education dollars compared to primary education.(In Brazil, public universities have only 2% of all pupils, but receive 25% of all federal education funds.
