Countdown to immigration vote begins [Amnesty to go to Senate by July 4]
Politico ^ | 6/21/13 | SEUNG MIN KIM

Posted on 06/21/2013 12:20:28 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

The Senate is rushing to the finish line on the Gang of Eight bill, setting up a key vote Monday that could clear the way to final passage of the immigration overhaul by the end of next week.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Friday that his chamber will hold a procedural vote on the border-security agreement crafted by Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and John Hoeven of North Dakota on Monday at 5:30 p.m.

The timing meets a goal long set by Senate Democratic leaders to finish working on the bill — a significant rewrite of the nation’s immigration laws — before the July 4 recess.

Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer: they hate to see black Americans employed gainfully. They love to see amnesty for millions of illegals.

Way to go, Democrats.

Rubio is a con man. Rand Paul may not be far behind and it depends on what he does the next year out.

I’ll say this about Rand, at least he is trying to oppose this Immigration Bill and is proposing amendments to it. But it must have happened when he read the tea leaves. Because has been giving mixed signals and had his won Immigration Bill that he talked about to La Raza.

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on the 4th of July. I guess it’s only appropriate that America die on the 4th of July too.

On the very Day One America News starts as well. So the new conservative channel won’t be able to do much about this.

Rubio might as well switch parties. His career as the darling of conservatives is over.

Members of Congress keep running around and saying, "The impetus for this immigration reform is that we have a broken system." We don't. We have border that hasn't been enforced and secured. That's what's broken. What else is broken is the American people have no trust in the people in Washington to do what they say they're gonna do. In this case, they're not even saying that they're going to do it. There's no trust, and then there's the argument that says people like me are opposed to "reform." We "just don't want reform." Wrong. The people who are against a truly secure border before legalization are the ones who don't want reform. We have a broken system, and it's only broken because the border isn't secure. And the reform that's needed is to secure the border, and people that don't want to do that are the ones who don't want to reform anything. As usual, what's coming out of Washington is 180 degrees wrong. We are the reformers, and the one true reform is fixing the border and then deal with our legal immigration system, which is perfectly fine.

Praying you are right!

I listened to Betsy McCaughy (??) tear this bill apart, on Mark Levin's show, yesterday. It's nothing but a payback to SEIU (new *citizens* will provide cheap labor for the hospitality industry) and groups like ACORN will roll it out as a "civil rights" department.

It pretty much picks up where OCare left off :(

Low earning AMERICAN workers should be outraged by this bill, as it replaces them with amnestied illegals.

The Gang of Eight (O, what a parcel o’ rogues) don’t want Senators going home to hear from voters over the holiday before the vote. They know, just as they did with ObamaCare, that the people do not want this but they are determined to shove it down our throats, unread and unconsidered, and then swan about like they did something good. Then, too late, they will learn the consequences of what they voted for.

Harry Reid’s MO: Always push through a bill around a holiday, for the extra pressure.

Seems the site doesn’t keep an archive beyond a few days of every story they post on the main page. They have fewer stuff in the archives of more communist take over news.

Yeah Rubio’s career is over. Allen West wants to challenge him for Senate and at the same time Cruz is opposing him in the Senate on this bill.

WHY the RUSH???

Just a few felony crimes that will be waived for ILLEGAL aliens under Immigration Bill S.744:

‘Falsely representing or knowingly using a Social Security Number obtained with false information’

‘Falsely claiming citizenship on Form I-9’

‘Knowingly altering a Social Security Card’

‘Document fraud to prove eligibility for employment’

http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2013/06/immigration-bill-waives-felony-document-fraud.html

Comment at site may say it all: “Isn’t Barack Obama subject to charges for all of these offenses? Maybe that’s why the immigration bill is getting the ultra-fast track treatment; maybe evidence of his ineligibility is mounting toward levels which can no longer be ignored.”

Well we just know the RINO’s are salivating to help push this POS over the top. It will pass with votes to spare.

Don’t hold too tight on those hopes. Boehner is capable of anything.
