Hey George - ENFORCE EXISTING LAWS AND WE DO NOT NEED THIS DISCUSSION. No American citizen is clamoring for COMPREHENSIVE RAT VOTER REFORM - only the Illegal Aliens are pushing it and their GOP-e supporters.

Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.

Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.

Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.

Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives won’t vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.

Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3036438/posts

call congress . no bill at all from the House

and of course boner must not bring the Senate bill for the House to vote on. no senate bill, no border security bill from the House .nothing.

George, in all sincerity, go pound it.

He’s always been a North American Union kind of guy, and that’s just bs. What do we expect for a guy who did absolutely nothing tangible or lasting about the border or the wall for eight years.

What - you mean taking more immigrants LEGALLY than most of the rest of the world combined isn't giving immigration enough of a 'chance'?

The years haven't made GWB any more coherent.

Why? Why not hold Mexico responsible for their own poverty. Pressure should be brought upon the Mexican government to start treating THEIR citizens like human beings. It’s not the job of the American taxpayers to care for them.

Hey, W, tell Laura to pick up a mop and learn how to use it instead of buying her a slave from Mexico to do it for her. She could get off the couch, put down the romance novel. A little honest toil does every person some good.

Bush, As you learned in 2007 the only thing stopping immigration reform is your insistence on amnesty first.

I would be much more sympathetic to this whole immigration legislation thingy if there wasn’t an immigration system already in place. The people that this immigration legislation targets have circumvented the current system that is in place. I have no faith that a new system will be respected anymore by these individuals. If anything, since the US will have kowtowed to these individuals in the form of this new legislation, this will only embolden these people to take further liberties with our country.

Passage of this legislation will only lead to the future confirmation of what fools the elected representatives of this country were at the time that they passed this legislation.

Not surprising. For four-plus years Baraq The First has called George Bush everything but white and when Bush finally speaks regarding policy, what does he do?

He opposes conservatives. It’s enough to make me take the pledge.

I'd like to ask Bush or any democrat what's so good about letting 100 million 3rd world immigrants who will vote for socialism/democrats who will turn the USA into a socialist communist state. I'm emailing most of these Congressmen with that question. anyone who is an individual should be against turning the USA into a socialist state.

No surprise here. It was just a matter of time until W. jumped in to do what he could to get the illegal alien amnesty bill passed. Bush always had a soft spot for illegal Mexicans. Probably from his years growing up in Texas and knowing all those friendly Mexican workers around his fathers house landscaping, doing laundry, cleaning, etc.

In the final analysis G.W. has the right to his opinion and his pimping for an amnesty bill is not going to carry much weight with anyone but fellow RINOs - who would vote for it, anyway.

Bush spoke about this in one conversation a few years ago, and the bottom line seemed to be that because his nanny was an illegal, we should let them all come in.

Bush is also the same man who called the Minutemen "vigilantes" and who said ILLEGAL aliens are coming to America to do jobs that Americans won't do. We know these are leftist lies but Jorge doesn't hesitate to repeat them.

Does this moron realize that 30 million amnestied illegals and their family back home (50 million more) will vote in democrats/socialism to turn the USA into a socialist state?

Rubio, Ryan ,Democrats, Bush? do you realize that? I know democrats want that as that is their goal to advance progressive policies and install a socialist/communist state.

do you Bush, democrats,Ryan , rubio realize that you are for communism?

How can we have an honest discussion when one side can change the terminology to favor their point of view before the first argument is made. We need to get off the (illegal) immigrant term and start calling them what they are. How about Mexican colonists if invaders is too harsh. You really have to subjugate your intelligence to think this is just an “immigration” issue.

Good point. Obama and the demonRATs can and have said anything about Bush they wanted and he remained silent. But he speaks up now to push for amnesty?! The man obviously has his priorities and I believe getting amnesty passed (something he couldn’t do) is a priority.

It's mainly Mexicans, but since the 1965 immigration act they are letting in leftist scum from all the 3rd world countries, by the millions. this is why the country has moved left, why gov keeps growing ( the main reason anyway). look at california and you'll see the future of the USA. all because of the 1965 immigration act. before that immigrants were white Europeans so the democrats changed it to set up racial marxism and it's working ( look at california and hell holes like detroit that are mostly minority and run by democrats, pure hell there . this stupid amnesty bill just makes things worse.

Yeah. Give LEGAL immigration a chance. If that statute cannot serve the current purposes of the United States, then re-write the provisions, or set up criteria based on the current realities of the world, and pass that into law, then, for the sake of the future of America, ENFORCE the law, giving no loopholes for “exceptions” like the atrocity commonly called “amnesty”, and especially nothing like a “chain migration”. Every entrant into the United States is not expected to become a citizen, nor should this be a stated goal. Except for serious breaches of the law and a resultant record of misbehavior, visitors are welcome AS VISITORS. If the purpose is to come to the United States to pursue studies or a career, then a suitable category as a resident foreign citizen may be reserved for this arrangement, but again, these people are not and do not choose to eventually become naturalized citizens. Then there is the highest category, those who, being of good character and genuinely interested in becoming a US citizen, willing to swear full allegiance and forsaking their land of nativity, are admitted for that purpose, on a conditional basis.

Only after fulfilling all the other requirements for citizenship (time of residence, familiarity with US law and customs including language, and swearing an oath of allegiance), would that coveted title be conferred upon the willing and dedicated applicant.

The Democrats are dumb but the Republicans are dumber. The Dems will have total control of national politics for a generation or more if this amnesty bill passes. If Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, and the rest of the pro-amnesty people think this will benefit the GOP then they are truly stupid. GOP to the Democrats means Grand Old Patsies.
