McCain to GOP: Accept path to citizenship In immigration-"reform" bill
The Hill ^

Posted on 01/27/2013 9:37:31 AM PST by JohnPDuncan

Yes John, creating millions of new Democrat voters demanding free stuff is absolutely what the GOP needs

- Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said that the Republican Party has to accept a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants as part of an immigration-reform package.

McCain said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday that a group of bipartisan senators would be announcing “principles” on immigration reform this week, which he said was similar to a plan unveiled during President George W. Bush’s second term that ultimately failed.

McCain said there’s one big reason that his party has to loosen its opposition to providing a path to citizenship.

“Look at the last election,” he said. “We are losing dramatically the Hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we’ve got to understand that.”

I would say ignore him, but I would be preaching to the choir. It’s the morons in DC I’m worried about. Somehow, many of them lose the ability to represent their constituents, the ability to think, or common sense.

The GOP is losing the “Hispanic vote”...that shouldn’t even exist in the first place!!!! If the GOP had pushed to enforce the laws over the past 20 years, they wouldn’t have to suck up to the illegal vote now. Dubya Bush turned a blind eye to the illegal immigration that happened while he was in office. The stupid party strikes again!

Why are you making up headlines? This is the headline at the link:

“McCain to GOP: Accept path to citizenship in immigration-reform bill”

The Newtster was just reported as having said similar things but did so in code.

Decoding it it came up “Let’s toss out any of the few remaining minor differences we have with the welfare & race pandering progressive Democrats so we can maybe get our guys in office to distribute more taxpayer booty to OUR pals.”

Methinks we need a viable third party.

Oh wait. That’d be a SECOND party!

There is no reason - none whatsoever - to believe that there is any possibility of the GOP getting a significant share of the Hispanic vote.

They are recruits for the FSA, and planning to increase the number of legal Hispanic voters is idiotic.

Like it or not....Hispanics turned the election and you have to deal it.

We always talk about kicking the can down the road....We've turned this road into a cul-de-sac to avoid a solution.

We ALL know that we can't capture them and bus them back to Mexico.

Deal with it or it will only grow and we'll never win another election.

What do people think should be done with the Mexicans and other “Third World” invaders? The Euroamerican obviously doe not have the strength, spiritually or physically to remove them. Sorry, but that is the truth. There is nothing left inside the Euroamerican.

It’s a dilemma: from my vantage point, it’s “make them citizens and we’ll never win another election.”. Fact is, it’s probably both. Look at California.

look you jackwagon; some of us don’t vote to “win an election”; some of us vote for the best outcome for our country. Turning it into Guadalajara II is not in my to-do list. This is the exact reason Republicans should NOT ever win another election. There is scant difference between them and the Dhimmicrats now; why bother to vote against the Democrat if you are achieving the same goal.

Were screwed no matter what regarding Latinos. I actually agree with the hardcore leftist Jamie Boululle in today’s Real Clear Politics. He says even if the repubs lead the way on immigration it won’t matter. Latinos like blacks are liberals.

Yes, this was floated curing the Bush years and was resoundingly defeated because people called, emailed, wrote snail-mail letters and sent telegrams to their representatives.

FU, Juan. Your track record sucks and we already have enough laws that you wrote and won't enforce.

Tell you what, first you enforce the immigration laws Congress has already passed, that you promised would end immigration issues.

You get that down first, especially "the enforcing the border" part, and then we'll talk about your new laws.

Otherwise, what's the point?

You cannot point to a single state in which the hispanic vote was the determining or deciding factor.

Look at California and it’s 23.4% poverty rate? No thanks.

It’s 16.8% in Texas and we think we have too many illegals.

It has been clear for at least a decade that the hispanic vote is a loyal part of the Democrat party moocher base.
And the GOP’s response is to help the rats increase their moocher base?

Time for the senile McCain to go out to pasture in Az. The pubbies might gain a few Hispanic votes but WILL LOSE hundreds of thousands base voters. Lose an election and these moronic politicians want to reward lawlessness.

Well, McCain is a "maverick" don't you know... That's what the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms call any Republican who is willing to smear his political brothers-in-arms. They love him (as long as he isn't running for election, of course).

McCain once again proves to be uneducable.
But then again, he finished at the bottom of his Annapolis class, and probably survived because of his four-star father and grandfather.

McCain was the author of the McCain-Kennedy Amnesty Act of 2007. Even with Democrat majorities and Bush and Rove pushing the bill, it was defeated when millions of Americans melted down the Capitol Hill switchboards and servers to protest this amnesty scamm.

What did McCain’s pandering get him in 2008? 28% of the hispanic vote, and a loss of 4 million voters from Bush’s total in 2004.

Around McCain’s eight mansions, you won’t see any ladder trucks or overcrowdwed homes with 20 illegals jammed in every corner. McCain’s kids did not have to attend public schools where the main language was Spanish. His visits to Navy Bethesda Hospital were not delayed with a crowd of illegals in the Emergency Room. He didn’t lose his cushy Semate job to Jose Garcia who would work for $10/hr off the tax books.

It is apparent that the RINOs in charge of the Republican Party, like in 2007, are going to jam amnesty down our throats again. It is a well coordinated full court press by the RINOs, the Chamber of Commerce types and the Wall Street Journal, the Democrats, the Media, the hispanic anarchists, and the unions to force America to its knees.

This time, they will succeed, and the Republican Party will be through. Probably a good thing, except that the new party will not be a conservative one, but a hispanic Partidad de la Raza once the hispanics reach 40-50% and decide they no longer need the Democrats.

It is a good time for an American to be old and near death so as to not have to live in this coming new (third) world.

This is just AMNESTY again.

It is also SERIAL amnesty since this provides THIRTY family members join the anchor.

The fact turbin durbin is in this mix speaks volumes.

McCain should have retired when he lost the presidential election.

Sure, as long as there is NO PATH TO VOTING until actual citizenship has been attained and held for 10-20 plus years.

Conservatives/Republicans staying home turned the election. In order to win, conservatives needed to field a super majority of voters to overcome the illegals, felons, dead, animal, multiple voter blocks; instead, many sat it out because of one more RINO running as our candidate--moreover, one who either wouldn't or couldn't make the case against this admin.

Yes,the GOP is stupid, stupid, stupid to have let it come to this.

What is almost never mentioned is the academic and skills level of these illegals. They will not have the same traditions beliefs in hard work, family and religion as those who came legally and those who are 2d and 3d generation immigrants--legal ones.

Nice link. However, it still does not point to a single state where currently illegal Hispanics made the difference. I wish you could point it out. That way it could be proven the last election was illegal.

The US already has a path to citizenship. It is clearly spelled out right here. What the libs want is to ignore the line-cutting law breakers. I'd propose that an amendment be inserted that in addition to any fines that will be assessed upon these folks, that a permanent suspension of voting privileges be enforced.

Nice try there Juan Mc Cain. You can get your illegals citizenship just as soon as mexico grants Americans free and unimpeded access to mexico, along with the right to buy and own any property there outright. Oh, and don’t forget to allow them to arm themselves to fend off the drug lords and gangbangers that litter the landscape in mexico. If you agree to those terms, people might be willing to deal, otherwise you can just keep endorsing your central american slave labor trade to the usual suspects.

Again, you cannot point to a single state where the hispanic vote determined the outcome.

Hispanic votes are concentrated in already democratic strongholds like California and New Mexico. The could get 100% of the hispanic vote in those states and it wouldn’t change the outcome.

“We ALL know that we can’t capture them and bus them back to Mexico.”

Oh, yes we can. There is no political will to enforce the law.

Providing free citizenship to those who do not respect the law only puts out the sign to invite another 20 million to invade.
Making everyone pass a legal resident/citizen database test for a drivers license, for a job, for any government benefit? Absolutely.

DEPORTING EVERY ILLEGAL that is identified? Absolutely. Keeping families together so that illegal kids are going home with their parents? Absolutely. This is what other countries do.

“Deal with it or it will only grow and we’ll never win another election.”

I’m not a Republican. I’m a conservative. I’m not here to elect DemoLites to destroy the country slowly.

Alright, that’s it!

I don’t care what happened to this guy in Vietnam.
I don’t care how much he persevered.
I don’t care how big a war hero he is.

I want this man to shut the f- up and go away, NOW!
I wouldn’t necessarily mind if he just hung around but that’s not an option with him!
He simply can not keep that f-—g trap of his shut!
He revels in telling his own side how dumb it is for not agreeing with him and prefers to do so on camera as much as possible!
He is an egotistical jackass who has been in office too long and is now less than useless.
