The Pew Foundation and others have done studies and more reliably estimate the number at 50-55 million....and considering that they are cranking out babies every 9 months, the number is more likely over 100 million.

OMG, I didn't know it was that high. Time to enforce the laws on the books. Bring our Military home from Iraq and go house to house and Deport them!

“Time to enforce the laws on the books. Bring our Military home from Iraq and go house to house and Deport them! “

One of the insidious parts of this new CIR/ASAP amnesty will call for NO national guard to ever be deployed on the border.

Citizenship would not be granted lightly, the White House said. Undocumented workers would need to register, pay taxes and pay a penalty for violating the law. Failure to comply might result in deportation.

Oooh how harsh!

Let's try this:

Only those who wait their turn, in their country of origin, at the end of a stingy quota line, would be granted citizenship.

Some people here were quick to proclaim the assertion that this is how Obama plans to be re-elected after his Health Care plan is jammed down America.

Maybe they shouldn’t have pulled out the tin foil hats so soon?

To me, it has always been the obvious intended path.

Say hello to 30-40 million Illegal Alien Americans.

Check this report out. Evidently Cornyn is working with Graham/Obama on amnesty.

The immigration reform debate has no doubt been stalled. But there is some behind-the-scenes movement.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he met this week with Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. on the issue. “I am interested in some ideas he has. I shared some ideas I have,” Cornyn said.

Schumer has been working with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on coming up with a compromise. Meetings are also ongoing between business and labor leaders.

Reform advocates are furious that Congress and President Obama have done so little to push for change. National Council of La Raza (NLCR) has a new video out urging action. Another Washington rally is also planned for later this month.

Great Math!

Another equation is:

ObamaCare + Amnesty = A Way to Pay for Obamacare

Obamacare (or any social program) can't work unless you have new taxpayers.

Fellow Southerners, we may yet get another chance at throwing of the yoke of the Federal beast. Be patient. The backlash is brewing.

Same old BS on criminal entry into our country -- reward the criminal by providing a 'path to citizenship'. I see Lindsey Graham's name associated with so much liberal folly, I have a hard time believing he's a Republican.

One very important point. This push toward citizenship for 20-30 million illegals puts the lie to all those promises about the health care bill NOT providing health care to illegals. Because they won't be 'illegals' anymore. They will be 'landed immigrants' on the path to free stuff.

They are blinded by their arrogance. There's no way to justify adding 20 million illegals at a time when there's a shortage of jobs. They will basically be signing 20 million people onto the welfare roles. If Obama does push for this there can be no doubt of his treasonous intentions.

I guess working on job creation, as he has promised many times, is proving to be too challenging.

If this is brought up, it will absolutely kill Juan McAmnesty. On the one hand, he'll be dying to jump all over it to take credit for another amnesty push. On the other hand, he knows if he were to do so, J. D. Hayworth will gain at least 25 points on him.

McAmnesty may finally have to be put in that straight jacket we have expected him to be carried away in for so long.

Yes, Obummer, bring up your amnesty proposal. Shoot yourself in the other foot. Before the November elections please, and, better yet, before the August primaries.

Excellent pic. Of course we all get b lasted for hating Mexicans etc.

Something NO ONE addresses. How in the heck can these illegals pay these fees and taxes all amnesty plans include?
These people illegally entered because they were broke.
Tehy count on stupid US to educate feed clother and treat medically their millions of kids, both illegal kida and anchor babies.
Where will these illegals get money to pay these fees and taxes?

Better than a 2 million dollar donation to J. D. Hayworth.

Idle hands are the devil’s tools seems an appropriate phrase for 0bama.

He is busy at everything other than common sense principles like tax cuts to spur job creation.

Hell, he’z just continuing to carry the torch.

Handed off by Bush himself.

Lindsey Graham (R)
John McCain (R)
George Bush (R)
Teddy Kennedy (D)
Charles Schumer (D)

See the pattern here?

The viewpoint expressed in the article in your #37 is that of a race-baiting La Raza pimp.

The jerk seems to believe that because they got here, however illegally, they’re OWED food, housing, medical care, schooling for their niños along with free breakfast and lunch, ad nauseum.

Meanwhile they’ll continue to speak Spanish, denigrate America, wave their Mexican flags, and commit the crimes Americans won’t commit.

They are parasites. Deport them all along with their anchor babies.
