Biden: Irish Should Join Hispanics to Push Immigration Reform
Newsmax ^ | Friday, 22 Mar 2013 02:52 PM | Bill Hoffmann

Posted on 03/22/2013 1:46:57 PM PDT by Olog-hai

Vice President Joe Biden says Irish Americans should rally behind Hispanics in their push to get immigration reform through Congress.

The reason: Hispanics and the Irish both have had to bear more than their share of discrimination.

“There are 11 million [undocumented] Hispanics, who by the way, are just as proud, just as noble, care just as much about their families, as we do,” Biden told 300 Irish American leaders in New York Thursday. …

That's a key point that Biden and his boss seem to think is unimportant. Their lack of concern for the law explains most of their behavior.

Any Irish who are in the USA illegally get deported ASAP for the crime of not being brown.

Does he mean Irish Americans? ‘Cause, I don’t think the irish give a crap about this.

The Irish Americans withstood discrimination (some self-inflicted and deserved, just like anyone) by loving this country, not just their families.

Also, by getting to work, getting their children educated, even if it took two generations.

by building their won churches, building the cities, in the businesses of bricklaying and construction, ornamental plastering, etc.

Does this stupid man think that the great Gothic Cathedral on Fifth Avenue was built by the government or anyone but the Irish?

For the most part, no. Certainly not in the 1800s.

Enda Kenny, current Taoiseach and stooge for the European Union, estimates a present-day number of illegal Irish immigrants in the USA at about 50,000 strong, which means that the true numbers could be a great deal higher.

“Does he mean Irish Americans?”

Yes, he wants the Irish to welcome people that will be hired over them because of their Hispanic race, and will be admitted to colleges with lower qualifications as well.

Any “white” person that supports admitting any “preferred” people is a fool, and has a hand in the death of their own people (whichever people they may be).

why some think illegals are just Hispanics is beyond me and has no idea about this country.

I;ve met many many illegals who were Irish, I used ot deliver to the Irish pubs in Boston and they proudly state how they don;t pay tax, scam the system and get what they can for free.

Anyone thinking it would be OK for Irish illegals to stay here is stupid just as anyone thinking any type or race of illegal

I live in a town with numerous illegal Irish (and Indians, and Chinese); I’m not assuming anything. Obama and Biden are pandering to Hispanics. This immigration debate is about the 20 million undocumented Hispanics in this country (of which 19 million seem to be in NJ).

There are 50,000 plus illegal alien Irish. They need to go home too! Besides, the hispanics don’t need the Irish, they’ve got the socialist party and the Muslim illegal alien faction standing with them.

Oh, yes, and they were here legally. I have census report sheets with my ancestors’ names on them. The box for when did you apply for citizenship is not a yes or effing no it is when, and the date is filled in.

And, as Dennis Rodman would so eloquently say, guess what, guess what, in the Irish parades here in the States, the American flag is displayed, prominently, and most often, as is protocol, ABOVE the Irish flag.

And the Irish didn’t push their language on the Americans.

This is well known.

Oh, contemporary Irish. Yes, go home or come in legally.

Why would the favored Hispanics need them. It seems the Irish are piggybacking on this illegal immigration thing that is designed to get the Mexicans in here to vote democrat.

Maybe Biden needs to shut up and send them all home- do his job.

As far as I’m concerned, Biden just directly insulted my mother, a legal Irish immigrant (from Dublin, back in the 60s).

You’ve got me wondering what the USA would look like if the Irish language was pushed on the USA back in the 1800s; that would be bizarre, seeing bilingual road signs saying “Nua Eaḃroc / New York” for example . . . and you reminded me of when I first read about Benjamin Franklin once thinking that German would overtake English as the USA’s chief language, once going so far as to print a German-language newspaper called the Philadelphische Zeitung . . .

Democrats wrote a law to replace the American voter.

From unionizing government, to Vietnam, to the 1965 Immigration Act, JFK was the end of us.

“However, if there is one man who can take the most credit for the 1965 act, it is John F. Kennedy. Kennedy seems to have inherited the resentment his father Joseph felt as an outsider in Boston’s WASP aristocracy. He voted against the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952, and supported various refugee acts throughout the 1950s. In 1958 he wrote a book, A Nation of Immigrants, which attacked the quota system as illogical and without purpose, and the book served as Kennedy’s blueprint for immigration reform after he became president in 1960. In the summer of 1963, Kennedy sent Congress a proposal calling for the elimination of the national origins quota system. He wanted immigrants admitted on the basis of family reunification and needed skills, without regard to national origin. After his assassination in November, his brother Robert took up the cause of immigration reform, calling it JFK’s legacy. In the forward to a revised edition of A Nation of Immigrants, issued in 1964 to gain support for the new law, he wrote, “I know of no cause which President Kennedy championed more warmly than the improvement of our immigration policies.” Sold as a memorial to JFK, there was very little opposition to what became known as the Immigration Act of 1965.”

These clowns will pander to anyone but USCITIZENS..They know what we think!

New poll...NO ONE wants amnesty, they want the border secure. It’s obvious our ‘leaders’ care more about the lobbying $ from GE and MIcrosoft.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a plan that would legalize the status of those here illegally if they have otherwise obeyed the law – provided the border is really secured to prevent future illegal immigration. Twenty-six percent (26%) oppose this comprehensive immigration reform plan even with the promise of tougher border control. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.

This was pre-Wilson - at the time there were no immigration restrictions for Europeans.

There was also no welfare. I’d be thrilled to go back to that - no welfare, no foodstamps.

Things were much different back then. Again, look at the pre-Wilson immigration laws. It was better and fairer too.

They ignore their own laws like drugs, immigration but then sue states which enforce their laws and then go after constitutional rights lke the 2nd .

Is it any wonder why we’re in this trouble now.

If your opposition is to legal, educated immigration via H-1B, then it’s good to get that out in the open.

Explain to me why MS and GE are lobbying to support illegal immigration? They are lobbying to expand H1B visas.
