Posted on 04/17/2013 5:44:28 PM PDT by chicagolady
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) said today that the Senate immigration bill is even worse than feared, since it legalizes illegals' relatives and even those previously deported:
"It's hard to believe, but the Senate immigration bill is worse than we thought. Despite assurances, the border is not secured before almost everyone in the country illegally is given amnesty. The bill guarantees there will be a rush across the border to take advantage of massive amnesty."

We cannot afford another ACA like megabill disaster.
Dear God in heaven, we need a miracle down hear. Everyone in Washington D.C.has gone out of their minds.
Just the fact that at a time Americans are suffering and losing their homes is enough reason for any sane human being to say hold off on any talk of immigration. But these Bastards do not care at all about the average American worker.
Americans be damned is the message I am getting.
We DO need a third Party!
Its worth defeating for the entertainment of another democrat tantrum alone.
My blood boils over these traitors at the helm. And they think we are absolutely stupid.
I’ve reached the conclusion that we need to severely restrict immigration till we can get our economy under real control and actually growing.
No 3rd party is going to help us defeat this bill. One thing can, though. To call a day of fasting and prayer and then try to spread it as far and wide as we can! What say ye?
I sent the following letter to both of my senators:
Dear Senator _________,
I am opposed to S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act and strongly encourage you to vote against this bill when it comes to a floor vote in the Senate. Politicians from both political parties are treating American citizenship as though it were a prize to be won on a TV game show. It is not. In no other country on earth is illegal immigration treated as lackadaisically as it is here in America. In Mexico, illegal immigrants are first sentenced to a term in prison before being deported to their home country. They are not rewarded with offers of citizenship, reduced or even free college tuition or access to public health and welfare institutions as we currently do with illegal immigrants.
Many claim that the illegal immigrants only seek a better life in America and are doing no harm. However, simply coming uninvited to America is a crime because they are ignoring and violating both our national sovereignty as well as our existing immigration laws. In addition, for many to obtain work, they purchase forged Social Security cards or other false documentation indicating that they are legal residents of the United States. These forged/falsified documents are violations of federal laws to which members of both political parties turn a blind eye.
The fact is that by refusing to enforce existing laws and imprisoning or deporting illegal immigrants, we are encouraging more to come. Many more. And, come they have bringing diseases, crime and questionable backgrounds that are increasingly burdening law enforcement. In many places, the catch and release programs only encourage additional crimes and are an insult to American citizens who would not be eligible for the same treatment. And, none of these equate to the drain that illegal immigrants have placed on our social, health and welfare services that have caused many cities and states to increase taxes in order to be able to continue providing these services to the American taxpayers who pay for them.
Above all, Senator, I have reached my limit of being treated like a foreigner in my own country. Everywhere I turn, there are Spanish language commercials on radio and television channels as well as Spanish billboards, and both English and Spanish labels on items available on store shelves. More often than not, because many store stocking positions are held by Spanish Speakers, it is not uncommon for an item to be placed on a store shelf with the Spanish label to the aisle and the English label to the back of the shelf.
Finally, I would also ask why the federal government requires that election ballots be printed in both English and Spanish? One of the requirements of a naturalized American citizen is that he/she be able to speak, read and understand conversational English. That being the case, why is it necessary to print election ballots in any language other than English? The taxpayers could save a lot of money each election if ballots were printed only in the traditional language of the United States, English!
Thank you, Senator.
Paul Ryan is out campaigning for amnesty with your favorite, Luis GUTTERSNIPE!
AND the media is dissing anyone trying to point out the dangers of Mexico or the border.
Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert Warns of Islamic Terrorists in Mexico and the media calls him ‘unacceptable, offensive, and ignorant’
WE have NO ONE to represent us, least of all the ‘tea party’. It’s probably a good thing you didn’t get in office, you’d be hamburger by now. What the hell are we supposed to do now? They have ALL sold us out with OUR MONEY!
I'm ok with a day of prayer.
Clarification: ONE tea party group gave it a shot today at Rubio’s office. Tea party patriots. The rest are K Street Lobbyists taking the sheeple’s money.
Coming right up.....................
National Day of Prayer May 2nd 2013
AMERICANS TO UNITE AND PRAY ON THURSDAY, MAY 2ND, FOR THE 62ND ANNUAL OBSERVANCE OF THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
This years theme, Pray for America, is based on Matthew 12:21 which reminds us that In His name the nations will put their hope.
The American people continue to be plagued with challenges that defy simple answers, and our hope lies in humbly seeking the Almightys guidance, protection, and blessing not only on the National Day of Prayer, but throughout the year.
No question about it.
Rubio is a traitor.
The good news is that even if this passes the Senate, it can be beaten in the House.
The bad news is that Boehner leads the House.
This sausage making episode is going to be even uglier than usual and will take an enormous amount of heat being put on these Republican patrician pansies who have sold their souls to big business lobbyists.

Investigators said a federal immigration hold was placed on him because he had been previously deported and re-entered the country.
I’m shocked /s.
If Rubio remains within the GOP, he needs to be primaried.
Way to go Rubio and McStain, you idiots, treasonous men! It’s anti-American and pro foreigner as is most of the nonsense coming out of the Congress in the name of globalization these days.
They are not doing anything to help Americans rebuild an economy but they are very busy shipping out business for India and China and funding the Muslim Brotherhood. Now that they shipped all our jobs overseas, it’s time to flood the nation with more workers/welfare receipents. This is evil.
