Come on! It is so obvious that Chucky is a new world order traitor and will be flying to the islands when the crap hits the fan. The unbelievable thing is that people believe this as to relieve their forced fed guilt. And Chucky cares so much he is involved in our loss of rights with Homeland Security, TSA and other fascist departments. You see the laws destroying your rights and yet you comply.

That border is fine. Believe it or not there are still some people who think most illegal immigrants still come from Mexico. There are actually more people crossing the border into Mexico then there are coming north. More people come from Asia then form Mexico these days.

Revolving door for health care aides / 9/15/09 / http://tinyurl.com/q243zq
Some of the most influential aides in the closed-door Senate Finance Committee negotiations over health care reform have ties to interests that would be directly affected by the legislation.
Before she was hired last year as senior counsel to Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Liz Fowler worked as a highly paid public policy adviser for WellPoint Inc., the nation’s largest publicly traded health benefits company.
Mark Hayes, health policy director and chief health counsel for Finance Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), is married to a registered lobbyist for a firm that represents drug companies and hospital groups, although the couple says she doesn’t lobby Grassley’s office.
Frederick Isasi, a health policy adviser to Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), was a registered lobbyist at Powell Goldstein, where his clients included public hospitals and the American Stroke Association.
Kate Spaziani, senior health policy aide to Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), was also a registered lobbyist at Powell Goldstein, although Conrad’s office says she worked as a lawyer — not as a lobbyist — for public hospitals on Medicare issues.

No waiting.

What's the point.

Bring them in now.

No more hiding in shadows, working for illegally low wages, not paying payroll taxes, not able to get auto insurance.

Those things only hurt the rest of us.
And just ignore our immigration laws?

And what do you tell the immigrants that are waiting in their country to enter here the legal way?

1986:

"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

1965:

Hart-Celler Act hearings 1965 Quote: Senate immigration subcommittee chairman Edward Kennedy (D-MA.) reassured his colleagues and the nation with the following:

"First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same ... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset ... Contrary to the charges in some quarters,[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia ... In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think."

Sen. Kennedy concluded by saying,

"The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1-3.)

Only 30 people were being let in at a time at the assistance center in

SCHUMER ANNOUNCES PRINCIPLES FOR COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL IN
WORKS IN SENATE

Senator Says Legislation Could Be Taken Up As Soon As Later This Year, But Only If Crackdown On Illegal Immigration Is Given First Priority

Biometric-Based Employer Verification System Also Proposed As Key Element;

Plan Needed To Manage Future Flow Of Legal Immigrants That Can Be Absorbed By Economy

In all, Schumer announced seven principles that he said would form the basis for the legislation he intends to introduce by the fall:

1. Illegal immigration is wrong, and a primary goal of comprehensive immigration reform must be to dramatically curtail future illegal
immigration.

2. Operational control of our borders--through significant additional increases in infrastructure, technology, and border personnel--must be achieved within a year of enactment of legislation.

3. A biometric-based employer verification system-with tough enforcement and auditing-is necessary to significantly diminish the job
magnet that attracts illegal aliens to the United States and to provide certainty and simplicity for employers.

4. All illegal aliens present in the United States on the date of enactment of our bill must quickly register their presence with the United
States Government-and submit to a rigorous process of converting to legal
status and earning a path to citizenship-or face imminent deportation.

5. Family reunification is a cornerstone value of our immigration system. By dramatically reducing illegal immigration, we can create more room for both family immigration and employment-based immigration.

6. We must encourage the world's best and brightest individuals to come
to the United States and create the new technologies and businesses that
will employ countless American workers, but must discourage businesses from using our immigration laws as a means to obtain temporary and less-expensive foreign labor to replace capable American workers; and finally

7. We must create a system that converts the current flow of unskilled illegal immigrants into the United States into a more manageable and
controlled flow of legal immigrants who can be absorbed by our economy.

How's that "Crackdown" coming??

Stand With Arizona

The Obama Administration today announced a virtual amnesty-by-decree for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, whose deportations will be
"indefinitely delayed".

******In addition, Obama finally announced a jobs
program - but for ILLEGAL ALIENS, not citizens - as those 300,000 illegals will also become eligible for "work permits".******

******Illegals by Race or Country******

Mexico continued to be the leading source country of unauthorized
immigration to the United States (see Table 3).

There were 6.6 million unauthorized immigrants from Mexico in 2010, representing 62 percent of the unauthorized population.

The next leading source countries
for unauthorized immigrants in 2010 were El Salvador
(620,000), Guatemala (520,000), Honduras (330,000), and the
Philippines (280,000).

The ten leading countries of origin represented 86 percent
of the unauthorized immigrant population in 2010.

The number of Mexican-born unauthorized
immigrants increased by 2.3 million between 2000 and 2007 and
decreased by 340,000 between 2007 and 2010.

Changes in the unauthorized population were much smaller
during either period for other leading source countries.

I read an article that said a majority of Americans approve of amnesty for the 12-20 million illegal aliens.

My question is why would Americans want to increase the voting block of Hispanic voters by 12-20 Million?

And why would anyone want to grant amnesty to 12-20 Million illegal aliens that ignored our immigration laws?

It cheapens our American Citizenship and is a slap in the face to the immigrants in other countries waiting to enter here the legal way!

Immigrant group balks at Obama reform wording

By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News |



An advocacy group for young immigrants expressed concern Wednesday after President Barack Obama, at his first press conference in months, said he would support "a pathway for legal status" for those living in the country illegally.

That Obama used the phrase "legal status" instead of "citizenship" raised alarm bells for some deep in the weeds of immigration advocacy, since some more conservative immigration reformers think the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally should be given legal status but not the opportunity to become citizens.

"He looked like he sidestepped around saying 'citizenship,'" said Marisol Valero, spokeswoman for United We Dream, a group that represents young people who were brought to the country illegally as children and want the opportunity to become citizens. "We are worried that the president and other leaders will not be supporting a path to citizenship for everyone."
