Exclusive--Issa Confirms: Drafting Bill to Grant Legal Status to Some Illegal Aliens
Breitbart ^ | 10/23/2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 10/23/2013 5:01:52 PM PDT by Rusty0604

A spokesman for House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) confirmed to Breitbart News on Wednesday that the chairman is currently drafting legislation that would grant legal status to at least some of America’s 11 million illegal immigrants.

On Tuesday morning, The Hill reported that Issa was working on such a bill. “Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has also started work on a bill that would deal with the immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, and has been briefing stakeholders on it for feedback, according to three people familiar with the matter,” The Hill’s Jennifer Martinez wrote. “It’s unclear when Issa will put the bill forward, sources say, but his aim is to jump-start a discussion in the House about the divisive issue.”

Is it 11? Or 20?

They seem determined to legalize the illegals. I wish they were as determined to secure the border.

I’d consider amnesty for aliens who served in the military for several years and were honorably discharged.

That’s about it. Too bad that’s not what they have in mind.

11 million illegal immigrants.

since x42i it's been 12 million illegals and 23 million uninsured.
20 years later it's 11 million illegals an 50 million uninsured.

GOP is being pressured by the Chamber of Commerce and big corporations to get this done. Issa is from ultra-liberal CA who no doubt if he doesn't do something, some lib will easily beat him next year.

Working and middle-class Americans are truly getting the shaft by both parties.

This guy has always been a risky basket to put all our investigative and legislative eggs in.

First of all, he’s stretched way too thin.

But worst of all - and perhaps inevitably - he talks a good game but has proven toothless on numerous slam dunk scandals. His meek response to Lois Lerner’s outrageous stonewalling was shameful.

How about the people who obey laws and get to have our votes watered down or countered by illegal alien lawbreakers? How about crimes against illegal aliens are not researched or enforced, so limited police resources can be focused on crimes against legal immigrants or legal citizens?

How about the illegal alien criminals return to their home country with their US born children. Such children are not then under US jurisdiction, and do not fall under the 14th Amendment rule for citizenship.

I have been slapped down on this site several times when I said Issa is all huff and puff with NO RESULTS EVER!!!!
He is very good at starting investigations but has no ability to close the deal. I say he is just another GOPoser.

The border issue is a red herring. The Schumer-Rubio bill would let in over 30 million legal immigrants mostly from Mexico through chain migration even with a perfectly sealed border.

This on top of giving amnesty to those here.

It is amazing the power of the money being spread around by the construction, hi-tech, fast food, restaurant etc etc industries and how corrupt the politicians are.

I think I read that Issa is the richest member of Congress worth north of $300 million yet he still wants more.

I’m curious about something. How many republicans who proposed or voted for something that many here on FR disagreed with had a primary opponent who went on to win the general election? Or, did the primary opponent win the primary and then lose to the democrat?

I’m honestly curious as to the tally here.

Jeepers.

I’ve been the first to defend Issa on the investigations, but, on its face, this is indefensible.

Perhaps he is passing preparing a joke bill to demonstrate the idiocy of amnesty, but that only opens the discussion to more damaging legislation. Yes, that’s a stretch.

sigh.

I see no reason whatsoever to drive to grant anything at all until our borders are sealed and locked down - for 5 years!

No "limited approval, pending borders being closed."

What's the problem with unemployment hovering at 8% in this country when millions are out of work, haven't worked in years and unable to get a job today - why because the companies pushing Shamnesty, are happy to hire illegals and continue to do so!

Unless and until unemployment hits, say 5% (considered full employment) then and only then do we begin talking about granting some kind of legal status for others already here seeking employment, not before!

I wouldn't go that far to "grant" citizenship to people who enlisted in the Military because people can enter the Military with criminal records, especially in the Army.

It's one way to get away from bill collectors, paying child support, etc.

The 2005 "Shamnesty" attempt, also was happy to grant "amnesty" to people in prisons, criminals on the lam, and others with criminal records (besides continuously breaking into this country, which I personally consider criminal but I seem to be one of only a handful of people with this point of view.)

Nope, before I'd consider any kind of legalization, I'd rid our Congress of guys like Issa and others eager to grant amnesty of any kind.

GREAT IDEA FROM FREEPER TADSLOS:.....compile a simple chart to show tax $$$$ and entitlement relationships between La Raza, MechA, et al..... with big business groups, pols and insiders.....to depict the extent of the web of deceit going on under Americans noses.....that can go viral in a hurry and expose these rat bastards....

===============================================

Just for starters, guys.

1. The Senate immigration “reform” bill includes two “slush funds” amounting to hundreds of millions of tax dollars that may be supplemented with additional taxpayer dollars for years to come, earmarked for non-profit organizations such as the blood-thirsty La Raza.

La Raza Studies do not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323). The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America: “.......execute all white males over age 16,” (p 167--AKA the Plan of San Diego).

America-hating Raza Studies teach (1) violence, (2) undermining US ntl security, and, (3) the need for Mexico to "re- take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation. "

2. THE STINK FACTOR The Senate Immigration "Reform" Bill Protects Crooked corrupt Latino Public Officials in US positions from prosecution.

NANCY SUCKS UP FOR VOTES Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials Gala in DC L-R--Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ); Salomon Melgen, VOXXI Chman (now under investigation); Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CAL); Francisco J. Sanchez, US Under Secy of Commerce for Intl Trade, Emilio Sanchez, Pres/CEO of VOXXI at the Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials Gala in DC. (Photo/ Voxxi---Melgen's ethnic solidarity web site)

3. The Senate immigration "reform" bill (passed in late June) contains a Medicaid mandate similar to a provision found in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) financial impact score of S. 744 shows that it would in fact impose a $20 billion Medicaid expansion on states. According to the CBO, this provision would occur over a decade-long period after the President signs the bill.

"In assessing the impact of the bill on the federal budget, CBO estimated its effect on federal and state spending for Medicaid. S. 744 would have the result of increasing the number of individuals who would become eligible for either full Medicaid or for more limited emergency benefits,” the CBO writes in the section of its Senate immigration bill score on mandates to states.

Talk to anyone who works at a tax prep service and they will shake their head at the abuse of EITC and how the single moms and minorities beat a path to door so they can get that “working welfare” check And many will lie their butts off to “qualify” or game the system, knowing exactly where the high point in the refund curve is.

...minorities lie their butts off....the connivers game the system----know exactly where the high point in the EITC refund curve is.....

US Dept of the Treasury Says Illegal Aliens Collecting Billions in Tax Credits According to the US Dept of Treasury’s Inspector General, more than $4.2 billion in additional child credits were paid out in 2010 to illegal immigrants. In 2005, the pay outs totaled $924 million.

This program allows low income earners to claim a $1,000 per child credit. $20 billion EITC is estimated to have been paid out to these cunning "impoverished" illegals.

Most of them are collecting over and over again-----using multiple identities-----falsifying official apps---claiming children they do not have and/or falsely stating kids are back in their homelands.

REFERENCE March 8, 2012 KENNER, La. -- Kenner police arrested illegal Marvin Baca who sold false W-2 forms to another illegal immigrant for $1,500. Baca sold fraudulent W-2 forms for $1,500 to other Hispanics here illegally.

Police said that on one of the forged W-2 forms had a SS no of a person living in Virginia. Police said illegal Hispanics purchase fictitious W-2 forms and file false tax returns with the government to receive EITC refunds. Baca was charged with one count of ID theft and two counts of forgery.

===================================================

IRS knowingly sends Billions in Fraudulent Refunds to Illegal Immigrants
Town Hall ^ | Mar 30, 2013 | Bob Beauprez / FR Posted by Texas Fossil

A WTHR-TV Indianapolis investigative report exposes a fraudulent scheme wherein the IRS is sending $4.2 billion per year to illegal immigrants as an "additional child tax credit" for children who don't even live in the U.S. Further, the IRS and Congress have been ignoring the scheme for years. The Inspector General's office has repeatedly identified the problem in audit after audit.

The IG, Russell George says, "The magnitude of the problem has grown exponentially," but the IRS is doing nothing to stop it. "It's so easy it's ridiculous," the tax preparer whistleblower who exposed the fraud admits.

Names are simply listed on the IRS form. "The more you put on there, the more you get back." No questions asked…the check's in the mail. Video on youtube of this shocking report. (Excerpt) Read more at finance.townhall.com

I saw that CA already signed up 600,000 for MediCal under expansion. I lived there and I can guarantee you that they are seeking out the illegals and signing them up whether the law says they are eligible or not, and no one will get into any trouble whatsoever.

Yessir!

When and if, unemployment goes down considerably, then and only then can we consider some kind of "Operation Wet Back," begun under Eisenhower to meet the demands of some west coast growers.

Men came with permission (no families, distant cousins, etc.) and left after growing season.

That's the only way to handle a "shortage of workers."

We do NOT have a shortage of welfare recipients, slackers, criminals, drug dealers, etc. currently and until and unless we do, we don't need millions of invaders streaming in, crowding schools, emergency rooms, jails and court dockets!
