Democrats gear up for amnesty battle
American Thinker ^ | 1/6/10 | Ann Kane

Posted on 01/06/2010 12:57:10 PM PST by pissant

There is no doubt the Democrats should be fearful of losing seats in Congress in the midterm elections; however, their blasé attitude about the Great Tsunami of November 2, 2010 suggests they have a plan.

There are an estimated 15 to 20 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. On December 15, 2009, Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez (D-IL) introduced the Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity Act of 2009, to the U.S. House of Representatives. A brief summary of the bill From the Miami Herald:

Applicants would pay a $500 fine -- lower than the thousands of dollars sought in prior bills -- and must have clean criminal records. If approved, applicants would receive a six-year visa, which eventually could be replaced by a green card -- the path to possible citizenship.

The bill also incorporates provisions of the DREAM Act, separate legislation filed earlier that would provide green cards to children of undocumented parents who are in high school or college and were brought to the United States as minors.

This past December, Gutierrez spoke about:

...mothers separated from their children, workers exploited and undermined security at the border- all caused at the hands of a broken immigration system. This bill says 'enough,' and presents a solution to our broken system that we as a nation of immigrants can be proud of.

The Chicago Democrat's words sound as if they're right out of David Axelrod's playbook. He pulls on our heart strings to distract us from the truth of the matter-This bill will give illegal aliens the right to become U.S. citizens without substantial punishment for their crimes.

According to the USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Office), applying for and receiving citizenship status takes an average of five months thanks to a sped up process instituted during the Bush administration; yet, USCIS does not restrict the processing of citizenship applications to a specific time frame.

Add amnesty to the Universal Voter Registration proposals explained yesterday in AT by James Simpson, and the Democrats can add millions of voters to the rolls, replacing disillusioned supporters, and ensure itself a permanent majority. This is unlikely to be accomplished the November elections (although, never underestimate the Chicago way), but most assuredly for 2012.

Gutierrez signals the urgency of accomplishing the goal while the Democrats have absolute control of both Houses of Congress:

We have waited patiently for a workable solution to our immigration crisis to be taken up by this Congress and our President. The time for waiting is over.

On the face of it, the New Year is here, and the present health care bill includes coverage for illegal aliens; yet, for Gutierrez and his cosponsors, simple health care does not suffice. They want the U.S. government to waive appropriate penalties for undocumented workers, and they demand citizenship for these people, which will send them straight into the electorate.

Six months ago, Rahm Emanuel conceded that there weren't enough votes to pass immigration reform then, but the House of Representatives this year has at least 80 congressmen on board with the immigration bill.

As soon as Mr. Obama signs off on health care reform before the State of the Union address, Congress can tackle immigration reform, and set into motion another of the President's promised fundamental change.

Yes.

Q: What is the current polling on Amnesty?

Amnesty is going to be a death match.

If the ‘rats can amnesty and register ten million new welfare voters, it’s game over. And they know it.

Perhaps with the Blue Dogs committing politicial suicide with ObamaCare they will nothing to lose following Pelosi’s orders again and passing amnesty. There will be Republicans like McCain and Graham who will go along with this.

They sure act like it. Yes, America is a nation of immigrants. What they don’t tell you is we are a nation built on legal immigration, not 20 million illegals.

I believe every Congresscritter opposed to amnesty should answer any directed question quite simply by saying:

“F-— You.” Nothing else. They’ll get the point.

I believe that will pass. The Democrats may not win this year but they can plant their seeds of the return to power later by enrolling millions of Democrat-leaning illegals as voters across the country. They do have a plan.

Illegals are here for Free, why would they suddenly want to give the US Govt. $ 500 ?
Why would ANY Congressman expect to remain in Congress if they voted for this Act of Amnesty Terrorism ?

They should also know, that if the game is over...another one with different rules will begin...

Yep. The plan is to shove down the throat of the American people, now while they have the power, government control of healthcare, government control of energy and amnesty for illegals.

They will lose ground in the next couple of election cycles, perhaps permanently losing white senior citizens, but in the long run a racialist coalition of blacks, hispanics and white liberals will place them back in charge with a permanent majority in favor of socialism.

If, for example, they don't get cap and trade this go around, then in later years they will have the power to simply nationalize the energy industry.

The Rats need a third world voting population in America in order to be able to rule in a third world-style government.

They think they can pull a good chunk of the remaining 40% of current citizens of hispanic descent who do not vote democrat by backing amnesty for illegals.

Yes, that is an implied insult to legal hispanic residents.

The scary thing is that there will be a number of Liberal RINO GOP who will support Illegal Alien Amnesty....and do not be surprised this time that more of the national Republican talk show hosts turn tail and support Illegal Alien Amnesty....none of them showed up at the Hold Their Feet to the Fire rally this past fall.

Illegal Alien Amnesty will be the death of this nation if it passes. The only thing that saves America and Americans, now, is that unemployment is 10%....and the Illegal Alien Amnesty bigots can’t go around saying “Jobs Americans won’t do”

I agree. They would also be required to buy Obamacare, pay taxes, and show up for jury duty. I want to know how to become an American illegal alien so I can have all the rights or an American citizen with none of the responsibilities.

You say, "war", but just who do we kill? Democrats, government employees, mailmen, congress slime? Personally, I'd start with elected dems, rinos and their staffs.

They went into it for the power, and actually believe there can be no punishments, since they make the rules. I'm willing to bet Mussolini and Nicolae Ceauşescu didn't think they would end up standing in front of a wall looking down a gun barrel.

The big problem with a revolutionary blood bath is that no one invites the hangman home for dinner. Look up Maximilien Robespierre and Louis St Just. They wound up under the same blade they sent so many others to.

Sue we have been at war since Dianne Feinstein rammed Motor Voter into law. That law requires that anyone getting a driving license or requesting government service be automatically registered to vote.

Someone called into Rush today and said Driving License database' were being scrounged for unregistered voters, and when found, they would be registered whether they wanted to be or not. I didn't catch who was doing this, but I can guess, if it is true.

Put another way,

is the left looking for an excuse to use the power of the state to exterminate their political opponents?

Yes.

The Rats play for keeps. The Republicans should take a lesson. They had 8 years to close down the border and deport every one of these illegal aliens and instead chose to push their own amnesty bill.

No, they’re trying to see what they can get away with. They may lose their shirts in November, but they figure they’ll have a lock on power once they make another comeback because history is on their side. They could miscalculate, but I doubt they’ll shed any tears if they start a blood feud against a large segment of the country. Will it be like the last civil war they started? Hard to say.

Dead on.

One of the major reasons there is unfortunately a Rat majority now. Why get excited about a gang who get handed a mandate and they do....the opposite?

A lesson for the new gang of Republicans coming in: run to the right and stay there on illegal immigration.

Do that and you get to keep that D.C. stationary.
