more manure. the bill will hurt the country and her citizens.

lowing wages and the standar of living helps only those at the top who are the ones pushing this nonsense.

how can more people help when we do not have enough jobs for our own citizens,people thinking they are right need to use their heads on this. 22 million citizens out of work and under employed.

they have even went so low as to say citizens can no longer cut it. meaning no citizens can work,and it they had their way if will be no citizen can get a job.

"Among CBO's findings:

CBO projects 4.8 million new illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born children will be living in the country by 2023 if the bill becomes law, compared to 6.4 million without it a mere 25% reduction in future illegal immigration (page 23).
CBO projections mean that in the first ten years after the passage of S.744, new illegal immigration will add nearly 500,000 illegal residents and their children to the U.S. population each year.
CBO projects that by 2033 7.5 million new illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born children will be in the country if the bill passes, compared to 10 million without the bill, so even in the very long term S.744 only reduces illegal immigration by 25%(page 23).
To be clear, the 4.8 million new illegal immigrants and their children in the country by 2023 and the 6.4 million by 2033 are new arrivals, plus the children they will have once here.
One of the reasons that illegal immigration will remain so high, according to CBO, is the bill itself will encourage illegal immigration. CBO states, "aspects of the bill would probably increase the number of unauthorized residents in particular, people overstaying their visas issued under the new programs for temporary workers"(page 23).
None of the costs associated with the 4.8 million illegals and their children in 2023 or the 7.5 million in 2033 are considered by CBO because they are assumed to be part of the "baseline" costs that would exist anyway. CBO only "scores" changes from the baseline. Thus, the projected slight fall off in illegal immigration (25%) is scored as a positive by CBO, no matter how large the actual costs of new illegal immigrants and their children."

It has been stated the CBO is like a calculator. They used the information given to them by congress. Bullsh*t numbers in and bullsh*t numbers out. Same thing happened when they first scored Obamacare. They used the bullsh*t information given to them by the Democrats. Three years later they have better information to re-score it. It went from a cost of 900 billion dollars to 1.85 trillion dollars. This is going to happen with CIR also. Three years after it has been passed the truth will come out, that it was an extremely bad idea. Especially when its found out there are really 20 million illegals.

What a crock of garbage...it will just encourage another crush of illegals to swarm into this country looking for their brass ring. When they don't get it handed to them, they will just take it.

Amnesty will cure almost everything according to the MSM.

It will be a disaster if it is passed!

E-mail and/or call your Congressman (Capitol toll free 877 210-5351).........ESPECIALLY IF
YOUR CONGRESSMAN IS A REPUBLICAN..........and tell him or her NO to ANY type of legalization or work permits (AMNESTY). Some type of legalization probably will be passed in theSenate.......however the House of Representatives is a different story where the Republicans are the majority. THE REPUBLICANS will decide the issue.....for or against it (For you partisan types this is just the facts). 99% of Democrats are for legalization so pounding the Republicans is the only way to stop it.

BY THE WAY..........IF YOUR CONGRESSMAN DOESN'T E-MAIL YOU BACK OR SENDS YOU A FORM LETTER BACK.....THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOUR E-MAIL DIDN'T HAVE A IMPACT! IF ENOUGH PEOPLE E-MAIL THEM ABOUT A CERTAIN SUBJECT IT HAS A IMPACT! IT'S ALL ABOUT DOING THINGS IN NUMBERS!!!

ANYTHING THAT ALLOWS ILLEGALS TO STAY AND WORK PERMANENTLY IN THE U.S. IS AMNESTY! That's all you have to say. Don't worry how well you write or speak.

All that matters is that the clowns hear from a lot of people. If a lot of people complain they get nervous. That means........YOU!

Amnesty is any legislation or act that removes the illegal status from illegal aliens and allows them
to remain in these United States. Under any terms or conditions, legalization is amnesty and amnesty is legalization. Remember 1986.

Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me.

From news reports the former La Raza VP is making the laws and telling the senate which amendments are good and which the Hispanics don't support.

It part of their strategy for Mexicans to be the Majority and wean us all out of the Sanctuary cities/States and implement their own agenda. Don't believe me? Go to their site,read up and become a voice for America... not La Raza.

Take a good look folks... are you going to let these poor/uneducated peon convert your way of life,our neighborhoods,great cities/States into the ugliness they fled from?... while their advocates pocket money they siphon from the taxpayers. It's all about money....disguised as bringing them out of the shadows. Wake up... Call your Congressmen.
