Immigration Bill Contains Slush Funds for Pro-Amnesty Groups
Center for Immigration Studies ^ | (May 1, 2013) | Center for Immigration Studies

Posted on 05/01/2013 7:08:36 AM PDT by chicagolady

The pro-amnesty lobbyists who helped craft the Schumer-Rubio immigration bill included within the bill two "slush funds" amounting to $150 million that may be supplemented with additional taxpayer dollars for years to come. Slush fund grantees are "public or private, non-profit organizations" described in the bill as including "a community, faith-based, or other immigrant-serving organization whose staff has demonstrated qualifications, experience, and expertise in providing quality services to immigrants, refugees, persons granted asylum, or persons applying for such statuses." In other words, the grantees would include many of the groups involved in writing and promoting the amnesty. [IRS]

Section 2537 of the Schumer-Rubio bill provides "Initial Entry, Adjustment, and Citizenship Assistance" grants to public and private, non-profit organizations that promise to help illegal immigrants apply for the amnesty (p. 384). For example, this includes help with "completing applications", "gathering proof of identification", and "applying for any waivers". But the recipients of these funds are given a lot of discretion, as the funds can also be used for "any other assistance" that the grantee "considers useful" to aliens applying for amnesty. The bill appropriates $100 million in grant funding for a five-year period ending in 2018, plus any additional "sums as may be necessary for fiscal year 2019 and subsequent fiscal years". (p. 392). There are no limits to the amount of money that may be given out to pro-amnesty groups.

Section 2106 of the Schumer-Rubio bill creates the "Grant Program to Assist Eligible Applicants" and the funds also go to public and private non-profit organizations (p. 131). The grants are to be used for promoting the amnesty through public information campaigns and helping illegal immigrants with the application process.

I’ll bet La Raza is going to clean up with the 8 Gangstas bill. Big bucks! They’ll probably end up being bigger than the KKK was in its prime.

Akin to loading the guns that you know your enemy will fire at you. Rubio is either intentionally undermining American security or is simply an idiot. In either case he’s unfit for higher office. But after so many years of praising Rubio as an intelligent, forthright young man, I don’t see how guys like Rush can simply write this off as him being naive.

Marco’s chief of staff is an IMMIGRATION LAWYER. Between him and Grover Norquist (the KING of Non profits!) they’ll have enough ‘non profits’ set up to aid aliens to keep them laundering money for the next 2 decades.

I think there are more special interest ‘non profits’ in this country than REAL businesses! It’s out of control.

Make a call today and ask your Senator to slow down the process and read S. 744, the Gang of Eight bill!

Consider what the Gang of Eight is attempting to hide by moving so quickly. The bill:

Grants amnesty to illegal aliens simply after the Secretary of Homeland Security submits plans to secure the border;

Grants amnesty to criminals and gang members;

Does not require amnestied illegal aliens to pay back-taxes;

Does not require amnestied illegal aliens to learn English;

Allows illegal aliens to sue the government for amnesty;

Allows the open borders and pro-amnesty lobbies to sue to prevent enforcement measures from taking place before illegal aliens can receive green cards;

Requires taxpayers foot the bill for illegal aliens to fight deportations at the Attorney General’s sole and unreviewable discretion;

Requires only 3 of 9 southern border sectors to have a 90% apprehension rate, leaving the rest in the porous status quo;

Grants green cards and citizenship after 5 years to illegal aliens claiming to have come to the U.S. before the age of 16 who meet certain criteria;

and

Effectively halts all deportations for years by requiring Homeland Security to allow every illegal alien its agents intercept to apply for amnesty and prohibiting agents from deporting them until the illegal alien’s application is adjudicated.

Okay, Rush Limbaugh. Let's see you explain THIS from your friend, the 'conservative' Marco Rubio.

Yep. McConnell put Rubio in the gang. Now he is hiding under his desk. Google McConnell and immigration and you get nothing.

With this type of “leadership” is it any wonder these guys almost always lose? Winning just isn’t important to them. Perks, Pension & K Street payola are far more important to the beltway GOP. History will damn them all.

Check this out...the media is really pushing Rubio...

I think this has been decided in the back rooms...Rubio will be the 2016 nominee, that’s probably why Rush won’t turn on him.

Marco Rubio to speak at St. Lucie Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner tonight

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, a potential presidential candidate in 2016, will be the keynote speaker at the St. Lucie County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner at the Polish American Club in Port St. Lucie Wednesday night.

Nearly all of the 300 tickets available for the black tie optional dinner, which is the party’s biggest annual fundraiser, were sold by Tuesday, said party Chairman Bill Paterson. Tickets cost $125 each for dinner only and $225 each for a VIP package that includes meeting Rubio before dinner.

Paterson said Monday he didn’t know the topic of Rubio’s speech.[snip]( I BET IT’s CIR!)

Rubio slight favorite among Republicans for 2016; Bush close behind April 30, 2013

Hillary Clinton is the clear favorite among Democrats in the 2016 presidential race while Florida Sen. Marco Rubio leads — slightly — the Republican field, according to a new Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind poll.

The national poll of registered voters found that 63 percent of self-identified Democrats and those who lean Democratic support Clinton. Joe Biden came second with 12 percent, followed by Andrew Cuomo with 3 percent.

“As for the current crop of frequently mentioned Republican possibilities, Republicans split their loyalties about evenly among Florida Senator Mario Rubio (18%), former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (16%), and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (14%). Another nine percent endorse former US Senator Rick Santorum, and a fifth each prefer someone else (21%) or are unsure (21%)”

The most poll was conducted by telephone from April 22 through April 28, 2013 using a randomly selected sample of 863 registered voters nationwide. It has a MOE of +/- 3.4 percentage points.

HELLO FLORIDIANS!

Immigration reform foes plan protest when Rubio speaks in Port St. Lucie
by George Bennett | April 30th, 2013

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio‘s efforts to assuage the concerns of the right on immigration reform haven’t worked with Floridians for Immigration Enforcement, a group based in the Treasure Coast that plans to protest Wednesday when Rubio speaks at the St. Lucie County GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner.

Sign the Petition against amnesty for illegal aliens!

We, the undersigned, hereby call on all members of the US Congress and Senate to reject any form of amnesty, path to citizenship, or legal status for the more than 12 million illegal immigrants currently in America. All current “immigration reform” plans being considered would eventually create a new voting bloc that would destabilize American politics further while preventing any future effective immigration or border law enforcement! We furthermore call on Congress to adequately enforce all existing border and immigration laws and to protect all states and US Citizens from invasion and damages from illegal immigration as both are demanded by our US Constitution.

I really like Cruz. I don’t like that he was born in Canada.
We’d have tons of crow to eat over that. And he’s a lawyer. I try to keep my pledge, “NEVER VOTE FOR A LAWYER”. That is one of the biggest things wrong with our government...lawyers in office.

I think all of that will be resolved and he’s the ONLY one in that dank sewer that I truly respect and trust. I was happy to vote for him for Senator and I’d punch that button again for president! :)

Rubio?
Sell out...disappointment...

So we can call it the Sedition and Treason funding bill.

When will the “Republican” party fund say, the John Birch Society, founded in devotion to the American nation and utterly against the Communist onslaught of Stalin?

Self impressed DC trash like McVain would go into meltdown at such a suggestion.

But give millions to agents of a hostile foreign power trying to subvert and colonize this country? No problem, right Johnny?

Agreed.

And we know which t*rd is floating on the top.
