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 Americas 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 Hills Jennifer Martinez wrote. Its 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.

Just the ones who vote Democrat, right Issa? This guy has gone over the edge.
NO AMNESTY FOR CRIMINAL INVADERS !
Who are these “stakeholders”, exactly?
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.
The do nothing on Obamacare but getting their pet criminal aliens amnesty they’re tireless.
No more immigration laws for your rich cronies!
Told ya Issa was a disaster. He has screwed up EVERY investigation. Horribly prepared and no endgame. And now this?
Why is all we have just a bunch of screamers with no plan? It’s sad.
Pitchforks, Tar and Feathers too!
Id consider amnesty for aliens who served in the military for several years and were honorably discharged.
Me too, if they serve in the military, but no amnesty for going to college.
Just tryin’ t’get some more cheap labor fast and furious.
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.
We have so many young citizens with college degrees (some useless) that taxpayers will probably end up paying for and they can’t even get a job at McDonalds.
Is Issa nuts? More conservative (former) Republican defections next year.
You are right on all counts.
Issa is filthy dirty.
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.
“””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 Lerners outrageous stonewalling was shameful.””””
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.
Who is Issa’s primary opponent?
I need to make a donation.
I’m disappointed with his results but he isn’t exactly working in a friendly environment.
Congress, a den of iniquity.
They are ignoring our laws to secure the border now so why would anyone believe that a new law would be followed?
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.
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.
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.

I don’t know.
But I’ll take my chances on the conservative, if the alternative is a rino.
I was born here. I am an American citizen. I am a Vietnam vet.
I want to know what laws I can break, and that by breaking not only will I NOT be punished, but I will be REWARDED!
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.

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.

...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 Treasurys 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
The GOP is going to be crushed in 2014 at this rate.
We will become an official one-party state instead of a de facto one.
The greatest economic downturn since the 1930s and they bring legislation for cheap wages! They would debase our citizenship by giving it to foreign lawbreakers! They would give 10s of millions of illegal aliens a path to the voting booth!
How’s that Benghazi investigation,, Issa?
And the amazing thing is that it ought to be easy to put the Democrats away forever, once for all. But the Republicans pick up the Dem agenda and run with it. To wit: Boehner today talking “immigration reform”, and Issa the same.
We can’t win when the QB is playing for the other team.
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.
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!
It’s not just the QB, the whole team except for one Cornerback is playing for the other team, which has the same owner and GM as theirs.
With all those investigations Issa is doing I am surprised he has the time to sell us out on amnesty.
Issa is about as useless as a popcorn fart.
With enough staff, you can ruin everything!
(FWIW, I have long since given up on the "tenacious and tough" Darrell Issa, figuring that if he was actually going to be effective, Boehnhead would have him kicked off the GOP island.)
Did it ever cross your mind that Issa and his fellows Rino’s do not want to expose the truth?
As broke as we are, and with the politicians spending like drunken sailors ( no offence to the sailors) I just wonder how long until our financial collapse. Right after 2014 elections? Give them an excuse for martial law and complete takeover.
A few years ago there was even some local news broadcast on this, with interview of people claiming 16 kids living in a I BR trailer, another one claiming his nephews that lived in Mexico. Some Senator demanded investigation...
NOTHING happened! They’re still doing it!
