Yeah, by reform, most Americans want them arrested, processed and deported. Enforce the law. BTW, the NSA should be able to locate every single one of them seeing as how they know anyone that's called or received foreign phone calls.
This whole affair has had two objectives:
1. Neutalize Rubio. The Dems saw him as a threat and realized that his ambition and ego could be exploited to ruin his conservative credentials. I’m sure they are assuring him that he’s now one of the “smart ones” who “see things as they really are” from Washington, not just a wet-behind-the-ears-senator from Florida who had it all wrong when he spouted all that Tea Party rhetoric. They made him the front man for all this crap, so when it goes south, he’ll get the blame, deservedly so. He’s toast. He couldn’t win his seat if he ran today.
2. Legalize 15 million people who are criminals by definition and who have not a clue about what it is to be an American with God-given rights. Sorry, it’s a cultural thing and I’ve experienced it first hand. There’s no outrage about big government or individual freedom since their experience is that government is big and corrupt, like ours is now...so, if they get to legally stay here by actions of that big corrupt government, so what?....”hey man, they let us stay, they talked those other guys into it.. we’ll vote for them, man.”
The House seems to have bought into the global-warming- type propaganda also and thinks that, magically, they’ll win the hispanic vote if they pass SOMETHING, ANYTHING, to do with legalizing what is illegal. Enforcing the law, or pressuring others to do so with the tools they have is never considered for some reason. This will cause ones who vote for the bill to lose any conservative support, and with the IRS suppressing the conservative grassroots operations, there will be fewer primary challengers with a chance. We’re screwed.
The republicans are spinning the cylinder of a revolver with only 1 empty chamber and are about to pull the trigger not realizing that the crooked game they are playing has the rules stacked against them.
