Skip to comments.Grassley: Bombings Call Immigration Reform Into Question
Posted on 04/21/2013 5:25:59 AM PDT by IbJensen
Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley says that the circumstances behind the Boston Marathon bombing should give lawmakers pause when considering comprehensive immigration reform.
It's important for us to understand the gaps and loopholes in our immigration system, the Iowa senator said Friday during an immigration reform hearing. While we don't yet know the immigration status of people who have terrorized the communities in Massachusetts, when we find out it will help shed light on the weaknesses of our system. How can individuals evade authority and plan such attacks on our soil?
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother Dzhokhar, 19, are suspected of planting bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three and wounding 170. Police killed Tamerlan in an shootout early Friday, and Dzhokhar was captured by police Friday night. The brothers were ethnic Chechens who were born in Kyrgyzstan, and by 2001, the family had moved to Dagestan, which borders Chechnya before being granted asylum in the United States. The younger brother became a U.S. citizen last year.
Grassley said the brothers' immigrant status should be cause for alarm, ABC News reports. "How can we beef up security checks on people who wish to enter the United States?"
Grassley said. "How do we ensure that people who wish to do us harm are not eligible for benefits under the immigration laws, including this new bill before us?"
While federal authorities were pursuing the Tsarnaev brothers Friday, the Senate Judiciary Committee was holding its first full hearing on immigration reform. Earlier this week, the bipartisan Gang of Eight senators unveiled a proposal that included added border-security rules and new citizenship eligibility for immigrants who came in illegally.

It shouldn't have taken these bombings to awaken the worthless politicians to the fact that our nation DOES NOT protect Americans. They stand idly by while the central socialist government lards up the population with misfits from other nations who are pleased to see the dregs of their societies skimmed off and whisked away to America. They're like children watching mindless television as they see the nation destroyed by porous borders allowing the seepage of trespassers from the south with their TB, lice and bedbugs bring these gifts to this once great nation.
Then there's the Frankenstein monster that the idiot class of America voter has re-elected in order that he finish his job of finishing off America. How anyone could see intelligence and poise in a stumbling, bumbling marxist idiot should escape anyone still in control of their thought processes escapes me. He is a muslim posing as an occasional Christian.
BLOOD- CURDLING "LA RAZA STUDIES"---ACTUALLY TAUGHT IN ARIZONA SCHOOLS: These shocking quotes are taken directly from A LA Raza textbook "Occupied America" (pg. 167): Supporters would execute all white males over age 16, (also known as the Plan of San Diego). LA Raza school textbook chapter from Occupied America, by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: We have got to eliminate the gringo, and if worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him, (pg. 323).
La Raza books also talk about the need for the govt of Mexico to re-take seven states in SW United States. so that the Southwest USA would become a Chicano nation.
YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to "La Raza charter schools" via the US Dept of Education grants. These charter schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.
La Raza is using taxpayer funds to organize the murdering of Americans; the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.
ARIZONA SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASE--- Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.
Cong Raul Grijalva (and friend) is one of Mexicos most productive and loyal representatives in our Congress....aiding--abetting and funding La Raza studies.
OHAHA AND THE DEMS ARE SUCKING-UP TO TERROR BIGTIME (undermining US laws left and right): No one is safe w/ these terror-sucking freaks undermining ntl security. The Dems are using US govt authority and tax dollars for "immigration reform"---to welcome terrorists who have SAID LOUD AND CLEAR that they want to kill AMERICANS.

They'll write a 1500 page bill ,promising us background checks on Muslim terrorists ,sure like they promised to close the border , border security in exchange for Amnesty and Reagan fell for those lies .so now we repeat? hell no.enough .best thing we can hope for is that no immigration bill passes.
The will SAY there are background checks for immigrants IF We allow Amnesty. Bull. bait and switch. every crisis they promise security and instead we get more government and more socialist and terrorist immigrants. when will we learn our lesson?
The Left is again pushing this huge Amnesty by saying that we will have enforcement afterwards. How many times have they told us this?
Enforcement First! No Amnesty!
Really? Where’s Michelle’s BURKA? In how many Muslim families does the woman carry the clout that Michelle obviously does. Does Obama fall on his face on his prayer rug and pray towards Mecca 5 times a day? Where’s his beard??? And on and on and on.
Why is Obama for gay marriage and abortion on demand? Why do people like Biance infest his entertainment scene?
His Christianity is a radicalized, Black- powered version. It is leftist and anti-American. It’s not hard to identify what it consists of. Of course it isn’t true Christianity. It’s an invented, politicized version.
Obama is a Muslim sympathizer. That does not make him an actual practicing Muslim. He is a sympathizer because of his personal background, and because he is a radical in sympathy with certain radical caused of many stripes, of which militant Islam is one.
Obama is power hungry and wants above all to turn America inside out and upside down. He wants to loot resources from whomever and whereever he can get them and redistribute them to his pet people and pet causes.
Obama hates the Founders and principles of America. Hates the Constitution. Because he wants the power in his own hands that the Constitution denies him.
Obama is terrible enough without the accusation that he is a Muslim. And that accusation doesn’t stand scrutiny.
It is very, very simple and easy to nail Obama as a Muslim SYMPATHIZER.
radical caused = radical CAUSES
We need so much more of this. There are so many Republicans and otherwise conservative pundits who are pro-illegal alien or silent on the issue that I think most people don’t even know it is going on.
This amnesty has to be defeated or I fear that our country will be lost irretrievably.
Don’t let the Chechen terrorists be a distraction. Although they themselves were here legally, they cut to the core of the illegal alien amnesty issue.
As with gun control, we need to enforce the laws on the books, make it easy to deport criminals, make it hard to come illegally, track non-citizens who are here and keep a bright line distinction between citizens and those who are not.
What we need is an entirely new government.
The progressive, homosexual baby killers need to be dragged out of their offices by the heels and tossed into the Potomac.
Voting rights? What a ridiculous term when applied to the vast, unwashed, lazy American who doesn’t even know who the first president of the United States was, let alone what the Constitution and the Bill of Rights guaranteed.
A poll tax. No.
Property ownership should determine voter eligibility. And, if it were possible, an IQ test.
The only way this nation can survive is to have a complete takeover by the religious right and the re-institution of laws that actually punish evil doers.
You are SO right!
What do you know !
Chuck Grassley’s up from his nap.
what we need to do is scale back government not add more government. repeal laws not new ones
how’d those 2 bills work for you? the 80’s Amnesty? etc?
We are allowing to many ME types, it use to be a decent mix, now the Angelo European is an unwanted import. It’s as if 0 is trying to import his own jhadist.
