Two key U.S. senators are restarting bipartisan talks on U.S. immigration reform that will include a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country, Senator Charles Schumer said on Sunday.
Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," the Democrat Schumer said he has spoken with Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and they have agreed to resume talks that broke off two years ago.
"And I think we have a darned good chance using this blueprint to get something done this year. The Republican Party has learned that being ... anti-immigrant doesn't work for them politically. And they know it," Schumer said.
President Barack Obama, re-elected last week with overwhelming support from Hispanic voters, in 2010 called the proposal unveiled by Graham and Schumer a "promising framework" on immigration reform. But the plan never got off the ground.

Free Shit for Everyone!
The more people on the dole the better it is for them to remain in power, stupid republicans, stupid people, voter fraud. We have been compromised, checkmate! The road is even longer and will soon disappear if it hasnt already. We are suckers! we believed in the responsible honor and integrity of our elected officials to do the right thing for America and they sided with the destroyers. dark days ahead
How about this:
We close all LEGAL immigration until we have dealt with and assimilated the illegals who are here. Assimilation is defined as follows:
1. They are identified
2. They are reasonably fluent in English
3. They are self-supporting
4. They have paid fine
5. They have had the required background checks (criminal)
6. They have had the required health checks, vaccinations
7. They have passed the citizenship test
Only when 80 per cent of illegals have become thusly assimilated into AMERICAN CULTURE, do we open up our pathways to LEGALS.
What does this do? It draws a clear line between immigration and legality. It gives people trying to get people in legally, a reason to pay attention and we create a different interest group, that of “legals” all around the world. It moves the needle away from race and onto legality and the real problems that we must solve, mostly assimilation. The Pols must be made to choose between LEGAL and ILLEGAL.
Starting talks is a ploy and a trap. Once talks begin, expect a tsunami wave of pressure from Hispanic groups and the huge cottage industry of immigration lobbies aided and abetted by the MSM and the Republican punditocracy including the Wall St. J. to exert an unbearable pressure on the Republican leadership to confer legitimate status on a broad swath of illegals. Last Tuesday, we reaped the whirlwind of the first Reagan amnesty (illegals who became citizens and voted) and now we plant the seeds of yet another destruction. Will we ever learn?
There are an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States, most of them Hispanic.
I heard that respected commentator Ben Stein was emoting forth today on this subject. He mentioned the now mantra that is being repeated again and again. That is that the day of the old white man ruling things is over. That the Republican party needs to get with the fact of the power of the Hispanics. This could well be, time will tell. I go to my well thumbed copy of Rules For Radicals, author Saul D. Alinsky (1909-1972), quoting Alinsky.
Pick the target, freeze it, polarize it.
What has happened here is that an identifiable group has been targeted. It has been targeted along both racial lines and by definition of age.
Orwell's nightmare seemingly coming true. That two opposing views can be held at the same time, by those who form a mobocracy. For those who gloat over the apparent demise of the said old white men, would scream blue murder if someone identified a minority group.
Please excuse this ramble.
Oh please. These jerks are the worst of the worst.
