Blake Farenthold wants pathway to legal status only after border is secure
Facebook ^ | Congressman Blake Farenthold

Posted on 07/03/2014 1:15:59 AM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

As I said today on MSNBC, a pathway to legal status could pass the House only after the American people believe the border is secure. I oppose amnesty in any shape or form, as well as any reforms that reward unlawful behavior. Our broken immigration system cannot be fixed until the border is secure and we have an Administration that will enforce the Rule of Law.

Bullsh&t. This is beyond. They have crossed a line.

I want the border MILITARIZED, with machine guns at every 5 feet interval, and landmines carpeted throughout.

Then deport the diseased, terroristic illegals BACK to whatever hellhole they swam out of with a ceremonial BOOT to their collective asses.

Then cancel ALL foreign aid to these countries that invaded us.

This is compassionate conservatism. Its compassionate toward Americans! Americans who don’t want headlice the size of tennis shoes crawling into their ear the next time they board a Greyhound bus!

Its not enough. I want EVERY Repuke to pass this smell test. Do you support militarizing the border? If they answer no, eject them. We need artillery on our southern border now

Very true. I heard the airports were on terror alerts for direct flights into the US. Along with the Ebola virus spreading in Africa any politician supporting amnesty/open border is committing an act of treason

This is a form of biological warfare. If they succeed in flooding the entire nation with this filth, I am going to be pi$$ing them off daily by putting a gas mask on every time I see one within a 5 block radius.

Our ‘immigration system’ is not broken; it is ignored. Fences work. They are why your dog doesn’t run off when you send him out to do his business.

I have nothing against calling an action to secure the border with fences and adequate guards to stop this invasion a “reform”, but I have one hell of a big problem in legalizing criminals in any way, shape or form.

If we can’t round them up and deport them, then we should force them into the shadows of an entitlement-free existence where they get absolutely no support, regardless whether some of them actually pay some pittance of a task or not. They are stealing my children’s and grand children’s futures and putting their lives at risk.

You cannot rely on the border always being secure.

You do not have a secure border until all Illegal Aliens are deported

Obama has conspired with his allies in the CPUSA to effect an invasion of the United States.

Every single one of these degenerate parasites should be deported the first order of business when the right takes power in 2017.

Militarize the border with Mexico, minefields, the whole works.

Put thousands of DC bureaucrats out of their do nothing jobs in Washington and have them patrol the border on foot.

This criminal Administration and it’s high officials must be pursued and prosecuted by the right when it gets control of the DOJ.

And instead of the next GOP POTUS just “blaming Obama” for his despicable acts, the right needs to INDICT Hussein Baraka and his minions.

While the custom of letting the crimes of past Administrations go unprosecuted has been the norm in the USA, these sons of degenerate whores are outside of that box,and merit prosecution with extreme prejudice.

Here’s a clue for you, Blake, there ALREADY IS a “pathway to citizenship”.

Every one of my immigrant ancestors walked that “pathway” and they became citizens.

They didn’t need any special treatment, they didn’t sneak through a hole in the fence.

The committed no crimes coming to this country.

Only after the border is secure? Does he mean “Janet Napolitano Secure” or actually secure? If the latter, that’s be an interesting concept, since America doesn’t have the political courage to defend itself from foreign invasion.

Can’t selectively allow people in when they can walk over the border.

any pathyway to citizenship needs to lead to Mexico first and needs to involve comprehensive welfare reform.

We all have to understand that every single politician has his/her price for being bought off on amnesty. Not a single one should be trusted.

Any Republican that slips into the PRE-CANTOR DEFEAT mentality better BACKTRACK QUICKLY, or else they will have to deal with a Primary opponent in 2016.

Before Cantor’s defeat, it was ok to play footsie with the President on Amnesty, because the Tea Party was TOOTHLESS, a lot of bluster, but no money, and therefore NO PRAYER of winning.

June 10th changed that, and even people like Blake now have to keep an eye over his shoulder - and he just did. Went back to the “Kick it down the road answer”, which is to promise to talk only “After the Border is Secure”...knowing that condition will not be met until there’s a new President.

Amnesty under any circumstances is a mistake.

Suppose King George III King Barak agrees to tighten border security, and even does it and amnesty is granted to 13 - 14 million illegals. Fast forward a year. King Barak kills border security, but the illegals still have amnesty and are here collecting welfare at the expense of the rest of us.

I got into it with Sherrod Brown (Socialist- OH) a few years back. His final statement to me was, “Let’s have amnesty first, then we can decide how high to build a fence and how many border patrol agents we need.” I told him he was full of s***.

A fool's bargain. Five minutes after the Amnesty legislation passes, Obama can remove border security by executive order.

What's needed is legislation that says that anybody caught in the US illegally can NEVER, EVER become a citizen or legal resident of the US.

And then should be deported to the southern tip of his country of origin.

Agreed, deport all illegal immigrants.
Create new immigration law.
Start with the Mexico immigration law, then make it tougher to be a Citizen or get a work permit.
Apply a Hawaii type homestead rules to property ownership. ie. you need a lot of proof that your family was born in one of the fifty states in order to own land
