RE :”In what planet are children getting a free education and a higher standard of living victims?
They are beneficiaries of a crime.”

If a poor Hispanic kid is brought here at 5 and lives here say 20 years to 25 then this is the only home they know.
They might not even know the Mexican language.
Getting a public school education here cant be much of a crime since its mandated by the courts, the schools are mandated to take them.

Now that Obama lets them stay if they apply as Dreamers it changes things some too.

They (Obama Dreamers) are not going anywhere and Hillary would most certainly extend that program when Hispanics come out and elect her in 2016, assuming they themselves dont have the vote by them per an amnesty bill.

Its not clear if states like AZ will be forced to give the Dreamers drivers licences. There was a court case and I dont remember it being settled.

RE :”Sen.Paul. Just another GOP sell out.”

I dont get my hopes up on stuff like this. If he is thinking of running for POTUS this is just the start

“I dont get my hopes up on stuff like this. If he is thinking of running for POTUS this is just the start “

He made too many ill informed, naive statements in his hispandering speech. He needs to stick to what he knows about when he filibusters. NOT good presidential material...going off on something he’s ignorant about..reminds me of Obama. Sorry!

And don’t ask me who is better...they all STINK.

Didn’t have to read the whole thing. He lost me at “undocumented immigrants”.

They’re ILLEGAL and no amount of whitewash changes that little fact!

Your welcome. It looks like Boehner and another secret group in the House is working to push this down our throat in much the same way Obamacare was passed. In the case of amnesty, it will be a combination of a small minority of Reps combining with the Dems to pass it. We are screwed.

RE :”Maybe they speak Austrian”

My guess is the US public schools taught them English esp if they started 5th grade here and made it through 12 years.

They might need some type of survival training to go live in Medico.

Now you see why I didnt take sides on that fight thread last Friday. You gotta watch them closely and read between the lines.

Ryan affects me that way. He starts saying Hannity type dumb stuff and I just have to change the channel.

Rand claiming that he never met an immigrant illegal or legal who wanted free stuff from the government was priceless.

How to speak Politician 101

'I never met a woman who got a headache'. soo I can do it too!

How about Rand claiming he never met an ‘immigrant’ (legal or illegal) who wanted free stuff from the gubment?

He’s gotta be running with lines like that.

‘I never met a man who liked beer’

‘I never met a woman who got a headache’

‘I never met a politician who lied or fibbed’

I can do it too LOL

Thanks, I am starting to think Rand is just blowing smoke like the others.

So given they are so dependent on all these welfare programs do ya think that they would support the Ryan plan, cutting those programs back with more income tax rate cuts included??

Maybe they expect to be billionaires someday?

Rub and Mccain say these illegals are natural conservatives, as Rand kind of did about.

New Tea party voters?

Prius says as soon as they get citizenship the GOP will welcome them in.

Never happen.

Listen to the most chilling statement you will ever hear about amnesty from Eliseo Medina, the Executive Director of SEIU

Unfortunately, the education establishment seems to casually discard Latinos, blacks, and others into crummy schools with no hope

Uh no, Rand. You've got it backwards. That's what they do to the schools, not the other way around.

My kid goes to a poorly funded, antiquated school in California which is shockingly Caucasian.

The school has one of the highest ratings in the state.

The parents all volunteer, the kids all behave, and it's rather like paradise.

As a buddy of mine used to comment about MIT...it ain't the school, it's the students

Yep, what he said in that video doesn’t surprise me.
I have no doubt.
That is clearly their plan, to create more Dem Latino voters with amnesty who will vote for progressives.
Pretty good find that 2010 vid.

More recently while the hosts on MSNBC are dying to ridicule Mccain and Grahamnsety for what they see as half-hearted amnesty efforts, Latino progressive activists like Voto-latino’s Maria Teresa Kumar are telling them to back off till amnesty is passed.
I saw her do it on one of the MSNBC shows, maybe Sharpton. She said ‘We should praise them for their efforts not be critical’, she means efforts trying to convince enough Senators.

After amnesty passes they will give Obama all the credit and attack and go after even McCain+CO and then lay out many more conditions $$$$$ for getting their votes.

RE :”As another FReeper has put it so eloquently: all I want to know is which laws I get to break without penalty.”

Well if you are a white hetro male then you have had racial privilege since Columbus hit the shores.
So Now its fairness time and the Wise Latino has ruled that one
white male Republican who watches FNC is worth 3/5ths Latino undocumented worker.

So its time to create new laws that you are breaking now to make it fair.
You got that thing registered law breaker?

Rand Paul thinks the GOP can win California and New England if he decides to sell amnesty. This was his reasoning months ago.

He really should be talking about PA with working class whites. It is much more competitive if the opponent is a white democrat. When you have a black celebrity on the ticket it is harder with Phillie turnout.

Rand Paul has called Israel an ally in the Paul. And Ron Paultard became an open borders prostitute in 2008.
