MSNBC The Ed Show 4/23/2010 (amnesty to make the progressive movement a lot stronger).
LexisNexis News/MSNBC ^ | April 23, 2010 | sickoflibs

It`s gut check time for the Obama administration and the Congress. Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator Chuck Schumer in New York have drafted the outline for an immigration bill which calls for illegal immigrants to admit, number one, that they broke the law. They`d have to pay a fine, along with back taxes, and perform community service if they want to move towards legal status in the country....

At the same time, we need to come together and grant some sort of amnesty for these 10 to 20 -- how many of them are -- undocumented workers already here in the country. They`re not going away. The problem is not going away.

And I think that if he does, how about this for a plan? We`ve got a lot of experts on illegal immigration. How about if you`re in the United States right now, we have Amnesty Day, you`re declared an American, you`re legal? If you`re on our soil, you`re legal?

Do you know what that would do to the tax base? Gosh, all these righties who want cheap labor, they`d actually have to pay minimum wage. This would level the playing field for small businesses across the country, and a lot of people would fall by the wayside, and we would certainly change the landscape of labor in this country and it would make the progressive movement in this country a lot stronger.

This is going to take a lot of guts by the Democrats in the Congress. Don`t count on the Republicans. They`re not going to be there. I don`t believe that you`re going to find the 11 that voted for it before to come back and help out President Obama.

President Obama has a chance to really change the economy and change the landscape of this illegal immigration issue for good. And, of course, with Amnesty Day, what do you say we really protect the border the way we`re supposed to?

Aren`t we concerned about national security? Tea Partiers, where are you? Don`t you want to keep the illegals out? But if the undocumented workers are here, isn`t this what America is all about?

Get your cell phones out, folks. I want to know what you think about this tonight.

Tonight`s tech survey question is: Do you believe all undocumented workers currently in the United States should be granted citizenship? Text "A" for yes and text "B" for no to 622639. We`ll bring you the results later on in the show.

Another one I saw I figured I would share. Just proves what we always thought : That democrats want amnesty because poor uneducated Mexicans, or even those that make it with lots of government help (free college), will be loyal to the welfare state forever.

“They`d have to pay a fine, along with back taxes”

Key words. They want to steal your money or more of ours. That’s what this is about. We make you citizens and you get the same crappy deal we are trying to give to real Americans.

Yep, and they will get their free health care too now with the tax rebates. Progressives (liberals) know it.

Hard to believe but there's a Leftwingtard who knows nothing about the minimum wage. Unbeknownst to him you must pay even an illegal alien the minimum wage!

What you want to bet he never does!

The law of me:

Illegals should be sent home to their motherland (wherever that may be) and if they want to come back, they need to do it legally - learn to speak english beforehand, understand our laws and culture and pay a fine for being here illegally before we let them back in.

I don’t have a problem with immigrants. I have a problem with illegal immigrants and HOSTILE immigrants.

Does this imbecile believe this? If you had amnesty day, the greedy employers employing illegals will just hire those who cross the border after amnesty day. DUH! It’s not like the government can or even wants to stop the endless flow of illegals into this country.

If the reason the "righties" don't want to just grant them citizenship is because the want cheap labor, why do we want to deport them?

Yeah?
How about another 20 million Mexicans invade the country the month before amnesty day, so they can immediately get US citizenship?
How about another 30-40 million more illegals added to the rolls of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, various disability programs, leading to another Trillions more dollars added to our federal deficits and ultimate bankruptcy and collapse of the US economy?

They may not have Lindsey in their side pocket any more. He’s having a hissy fit because they dumped cap and trade and are going for immigration instead. He’s made, I tell you, made as he can be and is going to hold his breath until he turns blue.

This is just projection. Blame the other side of what you are doing.
