Americans are also getting tired of the whining and demanding...when one lives a lawless life, how will a free pass suddenly turn these folks into stellar, upstanding citizens??? Um, they will still have the same mindset that they can pick and choose the laws they want to abide by or ignore. Character and personal responsibility are not their strong suits. If they really wanted to be a part of this country, they could have become proactive and started the process to do just that, rather than expecting to be handed the brass ring. Had they started the process, people would not hold them in such disdain.

Boehner has to go. He refused to bring Everify up for a vote last summer because he is a GWB clone who favors amnesty. I wouldn't trust that guy to mow my lawn.

" 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.

"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 amnestybill like this."

Oh please, you must be kidding about being an upstanding citizen...... Practice what you preach people,many undocumented folks have been living here for decades and they've never broken the law while you 'upstanding citizens' stay breaking the laws, anyways I don't know why i'm explaining to you cuz you would never understand how it feels to be in our shoes..... You might wanna quit judging us tho.

Really??? How about entering without permission, driving without a license, forging or stealing documents to get a job that wasn't meant for you...do you consider those to be the actions of law-abiding citizens???? Get some personal responsibility for yourself, and accept the fact that you and others like you are...lawless.

I understand what it is (as a Hispanic myself) to be in your shoes. You see all Hispanics are look upon as basically Mexicans(especially now)with the open border nonsense and the plan to make illegals legal regardless of the cost to taxpayers. We experience prejudice and all types of abuse from others who feel superior to us. But, we overcome,we learn(through experience),we work hard, we adapt/ assimilate and most of all we become productive individual /pay into our economical system.
You see when you have a particular group who are he77 bent on expect from those who have sacrifices and participated in the American way, you will receive resentment.
We give Mexico grants,we help her people,we support their people here in America also through various programs,grants,medicals care,etc. and they do not attempt to meet us half way. It's either their way or the highway,and that(Sir) is where the problem lies.
I could go on and on as to what the Mexicans feel /demand from us and the ways they do not/will not assimilate.... but I think you get my drift. Things are not getting better economically for most Americans and to be forced to accept Mexico's problems at a time when we can not even handle our own will draw all type of negative feeling towards this group of our population.
America is hurting,hurting bad and now is not the time to absorb a population which will further burden the taxpayers when we are being taxed up our butts.

I'm watching the talks today on the new immigration and border security bill. What an absolute pathetic mess. They talk as though these refugees and asylam seekers should be able to waltz in, use welfare and live without impunity. Whaaat? That's what happened with Boston and God only knows how many other POLITICAL refugees to come here and start blowing us up. We are going down the shitter so fast it's not funny.We do not have the man-power to oversee this many people to come in. Our protection as citizens will virtually become non existent so that we can protect illegals. Fraud will be more rampant and we will be paying for hundreds of new appointee's such as Judges and new immigration Attorneys to determine the status of applicant's.On and on and on. To the peril of this Country. Thousands of people will never be vetted, and will continue to hide. What a sad day for all of us.

Most Conservatives here would rather be talking about good things,positive happenings in their lives instead of having to keep reminding those who favor this Immigration reform Plan(without looking at the big picture,e.g the cost,the drugs/car.tels,ect.)but , we just can not sit idle and let these Politicians who sold their souls for the mighty dollar/ burdened us with such cost in supporting the illegals here /there and the added cost once this Plan is passed/implemented.

It was one of the biggest mistakes he ever made, because it solved nothing, as border security remained nonexistant. Fraud was rampant, and shall be again if this gaggle of 8 gets their way.

It was 3 million and Reagan lived to regret it since the border was not secured as promised.

We (Conservatives) are not going to sit here and let Obama divide us. We have worked to hard,assimilated among other things into the American way. We are United and will fight together regardless of our nationality. We are Americans.
We all go through trials /error,adversities, prejudice or what have you. But will/is that going to stop us from moving on? NO! We are Americans who love this country and are willing to lose even more in order to fix what this administration has ruined and continue to do.
Illegals need to get over it,get over themselves(as a special class(with is part of your delusional thinking)). No one guaranteed you or yours a good,prosperous life when you were born/growing up.... so pull yourselves up from the boot straps and either do for yourselves without our tax dollars or go back to your country of origin and fight for better.
No one owes anybody Anything !
People works,work hard and themselves/on their own advance/progress.... it is not given to you becuz of color,nationality,etc or because our Pretender n Chief panders to you.

This isn't a broad bipartisan coalition. This is the Houses version of the gang of idiots. In other words, it's a hand picked collection of alien lovers who are pretending to speak for the masses. And the media will print any lie these people tell them to.
