Immigration Reform

For Rubio, immigration shift could win the right but hurt...

" 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. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX "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. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS! "The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in. years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and. into the sunshine of America". May 17, 2007. Ted Kennedy -- Senator from Massachusetts. Member of the Democratic Party.  (15 hrs ago | post #2)

Case Worker: Illegal Aliens Got Food Stamps by the "Vanload " Please Note: We are reprinting the following article from our Corruption Chronicles blog as a timely update to the growing food stamp controversy ignited by Judicial Watch's recent disclosure of documents documenting the Obama administration's working with the Mexican government to promote food stamps for illegal aliens. The blog post, by Judicial Watch's Irene Garcia, gained even more headlines about corruption in the food stamp program, which has been corrupted for decades: For decades the U.S. government has knowingly given illegal immigrants food stamps, according to a former certification case worker who denounced the costly practice back in the 1980s but was essentially ordered to keep a lid on it. The retired assistant case manager, Craig McNees, was in charge of vetting food-stamp applicants in north Florida and Indiana in the '80s and says the program was infested with fraud and corruption that was perpetually ignored by management. "Illegals would come in by the vanload and we were told to give them their stuff," McNees said. "Management knew very well they were illegal. It was so rampant that some employees would tell their illegal relatives to come get food stamps."

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED Caveats: NONE A definition of globalization that even I can understand and to which I now can relate: Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization? Answer: Princess Diana's death. Question: How come? Answer : An English Princess with an Egyptian boyfriend Crashes in a French tunnel, riding in a German car With a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was Drunk on Scottish whisky, (check the bottle before you change the spelling), Followed closely by Italian Paparazzi, on Japanese Motorcycles, treated by an American doctor, Using Brazilian medicines. And as an added bonus . . . . This was sent to me by a Canadian, using American Bill Gates' technology, and you're probably reading This on your computer, that uses Taiwanese chips, And a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi Workers in a Singapore plant, transported by Indian Truck drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to you by Mexicans who Are in the US illegally because the current president, Born in Kenya and educated as a Muslim in Indonesia Refuses to enforce US law. That, my friends, is Globalization.  (Jan 13, 2015 | post #144642)
