...the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants...

Call a spade a spade - they are not "undocumented immigrants" they are CRIMINALS. What, are child pornographers just patrons of the arts? Don't be afraid to call them what they are - criminals.

...begin the process of getting permanent residence -- green cards -- as a step toward citizenship...

No, never. Anyone caught here illegally should be shipped back across the border and forfeit any chance of ever becoming a citizen. There needs to be zero incentive for continuing to violate our laws (ie. attracting even more criminals), and a very real incentive for getting the {expletive} out and coming back in legally at some later time.

Don't worry, MCCain says they will have to ‘pay back taxes’ before they can vote (for Hillary in 2016.)

Since many are in the 47% that will mean filing for back tax credits.

McCain and Rub are the heroes of Democrats and on MSNBC tonight.
(On MSNBC tonight) Voto Latino Pres Maria Teresa Kumar said she is proud of Republicans for making this change in position. Where could this go wrong?

The Title should read “Republicans Prepare Own Funeral”
with the subtitle “Democrats To Become Only Political Party”.

Picture this; A dem prez with huge majorities in both houses, SCOTUS full of minorities and homo’s.

After amnesty and chain migration, this is our future.

Good news? The nation will soon collapse.

I just found out that two of my kids’ friends are in such a case.

Their families came before 2001 and started businesses. They pay taxes, and have kids born here. they’re IN MY DAUGHTERS’ school! Great students!

They did overstay their Visas, granted... but they applied for citizenship, did all the paperwork, and are in limbo as they are used as a political football by both parties.

They had no decent life in their home country, and are very hard working people. It’s just not so simple to ‘send them back.’ They are tax payers, not welfare cheats.

How does giving liberals everything they want = compromise?

LOL, 11 million.

If they're undocumented, if they're so hard to locate to deport, how'd they come up with 11 million.

We were talking 10-12 million 20 years ago.

In theory, immigration reform of the sort proposed would not be a bad idea, in my opinion.

But, as syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer has pointed out, the proposed amnesty would be immediate, whereas the proposed strengthening of our border would be much later; and if the latter were never accomplished adequately (as it probably would not be), there is simply no way that the citizenship that had been bestowed upon millions of illegals might be suddenly rescinded...

Barry Hussein promised to fundamentally change our homeland.

Total destruction is indeed change.

Back when Reagan was president, he agreed to an amnesty deal that gave citizenship to 3 million illegals as long as the Democrats agreed that border security would be substantially increased.

Reagan kept his part of the deal. As we have come to expect, the Dems DIDN’T keep theirs.

We are now back in the same situation except that instead of Dems stabbing ‘Pubbies in the back, it is Juan McVain nd his merry band of RINO banditos. We know what will happen if zero, the left and the RINOS get their way. We wull become the northernmost part of Mexico. People will flood across the border in waves that will make the Mariel boat lift look like a bad day at Disney.

This plan must be stopped dead in its tracks. NO OTHER NATION on this planet rewards invaders and lawbreakers from other countries with citizenship. This is how insane America hs become.

With 8% official unemployment, which is pry more like 14%, how can our representatives possibly think adding 11,000,000 more people to our country is a helpful step for Americans? Especially when there are 15,000,000 of us struggling to find a job now. When things were going well, the idea may have made more sense, but with a recession, it’s pure suicide for the U.S.!

“Illegal aliens” are Citizens of Other Countries.

What is so hard about making them return to their own countries?

Why should Americans have to have their customs changed, their language pushed aside, their money taken to educate and medicate and jail these border trespassers?

When do our politicians get around to representing our interests, instead of the interests of foreign nationals who ignore our laws? When do we count? Never?

If this abomination passes the GOP deserves a lot of the blame. Bush had a Republican House and a Republican Senate. And instead of honoring his oath of office and enforcing our laws, he spent his time trying to reward these foreign citizen lawbreakers with amnesty. And now Obama and the treason wing of the GOP are going to finish Dubya’s travesty.

They would no longer be harassed, they would be allowed to stay here and work," said Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer

Meanwhile, UpChuck, millions of legal Americans continue to live off of unemployment because your party won't take their foot off the throat of businesses in this country. There is plenty of fodder here for commercials that would bring this nonsense to a halt, but who is going to make them?

Is Marco Rubio trying to out-Crist Charlie Crist on immigration, but didn’t Crist switch parties?

Oh good, unemployment must be fixed and all Americans are back to work, right? Otherwise, why on earth would they be encouraging workers from another country.
