The good news is that Calif and most of the other pitiful "Blue States" will suffer most. Chain Migration will add 15 million new peasants using Family Reunification provisions.
Il and Mass will each add at least 8 million benefit and service starved unassimilating peasants in addition to the ones here already. And, with NO jobs for them.
You and your children will pay and pay and pay the price for failing to defend our own Country. Cowardice on this scale should be expensive.
We must reward them with citizenship. We have no choice.
Rubio claims that chain migration will not be allowed...yeah, right, and the '86 shamnesty was the last one. Oh, wait, now this IS going to be that LAST one...until 15 years from now. Lip service and pandering gets so tiresome and so darned costly.

Cost of giving illegal immigrants path to citizenship could outweigh fiscal benefits

Published January 28, 2013

FoxNews.com

Any immigration reform plan that allows the roughly 11 million individuals now in the United States illegally to stay in the country would bring with it a mix of new revenues and increased costs. And as President Obama and a bipartisan group of senators separately press the issue this week, past studies suggest it is doubtful that the fiscal benefits of such policy changes would outweigh the costs.

By legally joining the workforce, the immigrants in question would generate additional and much-needed income tax but also would become eligible for a certain level of government assistance. Research shows creating a path to citizenship for so many illegal immigrants would result in significant costs to state, local and federal governments.

Judge: Immigration Agents Suing Obama Can Move Forward

Published January 28, 2013

Fox News Latino

A federal judge ruled that nearly a dozen federal immigration agents can move forward with their lawsuit against their own bosses and even President Obama over change in enforcement policy that the agents argue prevent them from doing their jobs.

Federal Judge Reed O'Conner ruled on Friday Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents' case has legal merit. They argue their bosses essentially have forced them to look the other way and not enforce the law -- thus overstepping Congress by changing laws through directives rather than legislation.

Open Letter to John Gibson,Sean Hannity Jorge Ramos, John Boehner,Luis V. Gutierrez,Lindsey Graham &
Susan Collins

11/9/2012

The gentleman & Lady I've listed above are advocating amnesty for the 12-20 million (wag) illegal aliens in our country . I strongly disagree with their position for the following reasons.

In 1986 President Reagan signed off on a bill granting amnesty to 1 1/2- 2 Million illegal aliens, today I wonder how many thousands more of their family members are here now because of the current Chain
Immigration policy in place?

In the past 26 years since President Reagan signed that bill, because of politicians from both parties like Congressman John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez ,Senator Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins who have none nothing to help control both of our borders, except to stick their finger in the dike to appease the voters at home and not offend special interest groups ,12-20 Million more illegal aliens (wag) have entered our country and now because the finger caper didn't work, their solution to the problem is amnesty.

The message that people like John Gibson, Sean Hannity , Jorge Ramos, John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez,Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins are sending to immigrants around the world is that if you can enter our country illegally without getting caught and hide out for another 26 years, then sooner or later another amnesty will be granted.

Case in point, a large number of American Hispanic voters including Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez & Jorge Ramos have again rally their support for amnesty, and are using their vote to blackmail the Democrats into granting it. My question is what are those Hispanic Americans basing their support on?

My answer is it's based on the fact that a large number of the illegal aliens are also Hispanics which would appear to make their support based on race.( Google some of Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez's & Jorge Ramos comments on the subject).

Now if I say I don't support amnesty because it's wrong then those same people yell I'm a "Racist".

We currently have no control of illegal immigration into our country, yet continue to allow in around 900,000 legal immigrations a year, and now John Gibson,Sean Hannity Jorge Ramos, John Boehner, Luis V. Gutierrez, Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins want to add 12-20 Million illegal aliens (wag) to our population (315 Million), which doesn't include the millions more of their family members that will come here legally under the chain migration policy...

My question to John Gibson, Sean Hannity, Jorge Ramos, John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez, Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins that support amnesty is how many more immigrants will our country hold, and how many more legal & illegal ones entering our country will make you happy?

Just because you can walk across our borders or swim / wade across a river doesn't give someone a place at the head of the line here. The line for those people starts inside the border of their own country.

To compound the problem, under the 14 Amendment we have around 300,00 new American Citizens a year who are born in our country to illegal Hispanic women, and yes John, Sean, Jorge, John B., Luis, Lindsey & Susan a lot of them walk or swim/ wade across our borders just to have those new American babies..

My closing comment is granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens is not fair to immigrants waiting in their own country to enter here the legal way and violating our immigration laws should not be rewarded with American Citizenship, it's worth more than that!

The inscription at the base of the Statute of Liberty concludes, "I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" It says nothing about welcoming people who bypass our entry doors by climbing walls, swimming rivers and sneaking under border fences.

"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."

No reform until they at least admit to and/or clear up previous criminal activity including fraud and/or identity theft if they used stolen social security numbers. No reform until they pay the YEARS of back taxes even if they arrange a payment plan. As a US citizen they're on you for penalties and interest just being late on a quarterly filing.

Oooops, I forgot that's why the ILLEGAL immigrant population haven't made a serious effort on their own to become a US citizen.

Alot of ILLEGAL immigrants lying and/or committing fraud for the benefits they get now would be elidgable to collect government benefits legally.

But now when they go the hospital they must sign their life away and agree to pay for services rendered including a possible lien on their house, a report on THEIR credit history and THEIR bank account being emptied for their trips to the ER. I don't think they want it that bad now.

Everyone thinks that those who want citizenship want or realize all the obligations that come with it. I've worked in high immigration areas of the country and have seen new ILLEGAL aliens complain about paying taxes in a store. They were ticked and looked at the cashiers like they were trying to con them.

Now the ILLEGALS have the best of both worlds with no obligations and some of the benefits of being a citizen. They actually like having the best of both worlds. Citizenship obligates them and thats what they've been trying to avoid for decades.

And they did that by using tax id numbers on an expired green card or work visa. Got divorced from a US citizen still living here? Sales taxes? Did they pay federal, state and local taxes?

Since they are illegal they obviously don't have any work visa. And yes, they pay all their taxes. The only difference if they get papers is that they will be able to visit their countries and buy more valuable things like cars. For an American it would be no harm.
