What Do You Think? Do you support providing a possible path to legal residency or citizenship for those brought to this country illegally as minors?

My father robbed a bank ten years ago.
Why do I have to give up my house, car, education, etc? It’s not fair that I have to give the money back - he’s the one who took it!
You know what I think? I think you just don’t like Hispanics. If I was white, you wouldn’t have any problem with me keeping the money....
Voted NO. Thank you!
Rino Women are just as stupid and traitorus as a Male Rino...
No Amnesty Period.
2. Call a halt to all immigration until the illegal alien problem has been solved.
3. Round up all the illegal aliens and send them back.
If you think that took a blue ribbon panel of PhDs, MDs, Nobel prize winners, world class experts, and lawyers to figure out, I've got some truly lovely unicorn ranch land to sell you in the mountains of Iowa.
Thanks for Voting!
Do you support providing a possible path to legal residency or citizenship for those brought to this country illegally as minors?
Not Sure: 6%
Number of votes: 129
Need some more NO votes!
Here is an excerpt of their letter by the Texas Chapter leader to encourage a supporting vote. This group drew up a resolution supporting the TEXAS SOLUTION. A guest-worker amnesty designed for Texas heavy hitters in the service sector and construction industry. Their control of Texas politics continually thwart citizen efforts to reign in illegal immigration. In the meantime, the Texas Solution planners have sent out their chief fast-talking lobbyist, Norman Adams an insurance salesman to push the overthrow of citizenship requirements for a Texas Drivers License. This one enforcement legislative victory was obtained in the 2011 session. Please take the poll and spread the word.
Will never happen. Policians want the votes and unions want the new dues.
Here’s the excerpt:
As you know, the NFRW recently adopted a resolution regarding immigration reform based on our Texas FRW policy statement on that subject. The NFRW website now has a question posed on its home page with the verbiage coming directly from our statement. Would you please take a few seconds to go to their website, www.nfrw.org and vote on the Weekly Poll. At this time only a few have voted, so our votes will be important. A Yes vote would support our TFRW immigration reform statement as our BOD approved.
Not Sure: 5%
Number of votes: 142
No they havent acted in a way to display fitness to be American citizens or to stay here...
Its one thing to be brought here as illegal alien children by their illegal alien adults...
its a whole other thing when they knew they were here illegally and never said anything about their situation...
and when they turned 18 it was now their crime as well as their parents when they didnt turn themselves in and go home to get to the back of the line...
If the US government had inititated a way to retain them here if they came forward is one thing...
They might have had a clean slate and been able to apply to immigrate here the right way...
but since they are blatantly in-your-face with us forget it...
They have no respect for America and our laws...
They dont love America...
they dont even respect her...
Let’s start at the beginning. The rewarding of an illegal act: Children born in the United States with parents here illegally. Any fruits of any conspiracy, criminal or civil, have always been denied, why should citizenship be a reward for the fruits of illegally entering the United States?
Same with those who have been brought here illegally - a path to citizenship creates fruits of conspiracy.
If we begin the conversation by adopting the exact same punishments as Mexico for illegal aliens, I’d entertain options. But so long as the conversation solely concentrates on the fruits of illegal behavior, and nothing on the conspiracies themselves, I’m not interested in offering any more amnesty.
That said, when someone writes..."Republican women", only two come to mind.
Lindsay Graham and (the once-heroic) J. Sidney McCain.
“My father robbed a bank ten years ago.
Why do I have to give up my house, car, education, etc?”
I voted no also. Mostly because these folks do not travel as one. You let one come in and 15 follow.
We don't need martyrs, we need people fighting to shape the amnesty as best we can.
We need to promote the American dream instead of the centralized government corruption that most of these people are fleeing from.
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
so we let the kids stay , but deport their parents, aunts, uncles? Not bloody likely. Everyone will get to stay. Sounds like full amnesty to me.
61% NO now.
Voted NO. Thank you!
I’m a member of our county Federated Republican Women and several of our group are state and national members. NONE of us are for amnesty. I’m surprised this attitude towards amnesty on the national level hasn’t come up at our meetings.
Guess it’s time for me to ask!
This country is way beyond that. The GOP is lining up to give them the vote.
But I always wondered:
1) Why isn't it a felony for adults to bring or leave a child in here illegally?
2) Why doesn't the federal government cut off funding for schools who don't report kids who are illegal
My point is that once you let the kids grow up here and to go to school here then you have created a human sympathy drama that you cant win against. That is the reality. You see it now playing out tragically.
So as late as it is add these to the bi-partision amnesty bills as amendments.
Chris Hayes on MSNBC today said :"Republicans are deluding themselves if they think that Hispanics will vote for them just because they sign onto an immigration reform bill"
But this is exactly what McCain, Rub, Paul and the others are trying to convince us.
The RWF has always been liberal, even when and if conservatives took over individual clubs, the most liberal from each club/groups of clubs was picked for leadership.
The higher up the ranks the more liberal the women became.
C'mon, freepers, vote! This is a mini-freep. This is what we're here for, not to just sit by staring at one's screen like a lump all the time. Even if you don't like polls, vote anyhow. The results will be used in some way or other, you can count on it.
Let's pull together when we get the opportunity!
Thanks Guys...spreading it to some Euro Immi-fighters too....
Magna Carta, I went to the site looking to read about the National Federation of Republican Women officially making the push for amnesty for illegal aliens but couldn't find anything about them supporting or pushing for amnesty. All I found was the poll you listed.
Could you please point me in the direction of where you read about them promoting amnesty. Thanks!
The National Federation of Republican Women, which I am a member of through my State Federation, is a wonderful organization that does more to elect Republicans in a day this whole forum has done since it started. They asked a damn question. So what.
Magna Carta, on the National Federation of Republican Women site which you have also linked above, under their link "Current Issues" I found the page below which not only has nothing supporting your claim that the National Federation of Republican Women are promoters of amnesty for illegal aliens, or as you have labeled the group "amnesty pushers," in fact, the National Federation of Republican Women appear to be anything but "amnesty pushers."
Magna Carta, I realize that this is my second request where I am asking again, that if you do have information which supports your claim that the National Federation of Republican Women are "amnesty pushers," please post a link to an article which you feel proves your point.
If your allegations are true, it would be something I think that many would be interested in reading. Thanks!
I was president of the San Jose RWF for three years, I had to resign when I ran for office, I stand by my statement.
The farther up the chain, the more liberal they become, I do NOT care what they say their mission is.
No, it is the conservatives who do the work, and it conservatism that is rejected.
I know from experience.
Thanks for your reply, but I think you are wrong. I have heard it called “chain immigration”, in which, once legal, a person may bring in relatives ahead of the line. No politician is going to deport parents of these kids who were brought here illegally.
How about simply reading the page linked to?
NEWS RELEASE: NFRW Urges Federal Government to Tackle Immigration Reform; Calls for Guest Worker Program, Legal Status for Minors
Thanks for the ping!
I was president of the San Jose RWF for three years
Should have been RFW.
I had to resign when I ran for office
I never said forced, it was the policy then that when you ran for and elected office you could not serve as an officer of a club.
I stand by my statement
The farther up the chain, the more liberal they become
Officers (country, region, state, national are chosen from presidents of local clubs, the most liberal are chosen, each move up the chain the most liberal are chosen, so the farther up the chain they you go the more liberal they are.
I do NOT care what they say their mission is.
I do not care what they say their mission is, they are liberal.
FReeped! Please add me to your FPFF ping list. Thx :)
Here is the position paper: http://www.tfrw.org/UserContent/UserFiles/Immigration%20Policy%20statement%20with%20Hodges%20sig.pdf
written and promoted in the Texas group. The construction/ restaurant industries control our politics and scuttle our immigration enforcement bills EVERY SINGLE TIME.They send out Insurance salesman Norman Adams and Restaurant owner Brad Bailey to the hob-nob republican luncheon circuit to keep these “Republicans” in line.
Center for immigration Studies references the Texas Solution here: http://www.cis.org/krikorian/gop-platform-jobs-jobs-jobs--illegal-aliens
Currently, this(Tx Solution) lobby is also pushing to overturn requirements for citizenship for a Texas Drivers License.
They need that poll to show they did not stray from viewpoints supported by their flock. However really they did, many were surprised by this little alignment.
You be added!
“3. Round up all the illegal aliens and send them back.”
Not even needed. Just end the freebies and enforce employment laws. Once they have no goodies and no job here, they WILL be drawn back to a Mexico that is actually booming economically right now.
Like most large Republican groups these days, the NFRW is fractured. However, we all band together to do the work. And as far as Conservatism being rejected? It’s our fault because we suck with our message and our messengers. As long as we keep doing exactly this...fighting about who does what and how Conservative they are, we will never regain power..and that’s what it’s ultimately about. Democrats know this, so they band together to make sure, no matter what, their candidates are elected, even if it’s not their ideal candidate. Until we realize that, we’re screwed.
I am a President of a Federated Club in Arizona, have been for four years. I did not step down when I ran for office, which I ultimately won. I’m still a President, I am Conservative and I am proud to be a member of NFRW
When I ran for assembly in CA, early ‘90, I was told that I could not hold office in FRW and run for an elected office.
Really? I’m surprised. I’m in Arizona. Our Governor, Jan Brewer is a member of AZFRW and I think she was a President when she ran, like me, for County Supervisor.
Did you win your office?
A liberal democrat did, it was a great experience, however.
Yes, it is. Until you run for office, you have no idea how much work it is, and how expensive it is to do it right. And that’s the problem.
