Skip to comments.Rep. Bob Goodlatte floats pathway to legalization
Posted on 07/23/2013 7:20:08 AM PDT by onyx
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte recently threw a curveball into the immigration debate by floating what has been anathema to House Republicans a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
The Virginia Republicans idea: legalize the 11 million undocumented immigrants and allow them to apply for citizenship using ways that already exist including marriage to a U.S. citizen or sponsorship by another relative or an employer.
But the chairmans July 11 comments have piqued interest among immigration advocates. Reformers want to hear more about what the powerful chairman is thinking. Many are encouraged that Goodlatte is seeking solutions for undocumented immigrants. But others note that Goodlattes proposal could be legally unworkable.
Are they trying to create space for a Republican version of legalization with a citizenship option for some but not all? Or are they trying to pretend that they want a solution as they gear up to get to no? said Frank Sharry, the executive director of the pro-reform group Americas Voice. I genuinely dont know.

What I what to know is if Jonny B. values his Speakership because; if they pass any form of pathway to citizenship, we will have a new speaker.
You’re right, and likely Nancy Pelosi.
My local news covered the meeting this moron had with his constituents. Some bused-in Mexican girl stood up and turned on the tears, sniveling that her people needed immigration reform so that they could “live a better life.”
Goodlatte just stood there with a stupid expression on his face, and the other constituents APPLAUDED her. That applause, coming from fellow central Virginians in this solidly red area of the state, made me ill.
“likely Nancy Pelosi”
Thats for that, now I need a black out. :)
UGH. That’s sick-ken-ning. Americans had better wise up fast. Our country is about to be handed over to foreigners who don’t give a damn about our Founders or our Constitution. We already have more than enough home grown, useless, lazy, idiots living off the labor and wealth created by others.
I really don’t understand how people can be so blind. The folks in that room were all middle-aged and older (well, from what I saw, anyway). They didn’t look stupid. I’m at a loss to explain it.
Later good lady. I’m off to eat and such.
use laws that already exist
What part did you miss?.
SOME enforcement, but not 100% - I knew illegals from living in Tucson, AZ. I volunteered to teach them at a high school class. Their parents lived here AND their grandparents.
I like Greg Gutfeld’s idea: Send the illegals to Detroit and let them rebuild the city.
...fellow central Virginians in this solidly red area of the state....
Can you be sure they weren’t brought in, as well?
In related news, citizens begin to float the idea of a primary race...
The insider politicians are determined to shove this down our throats.....
Anything that does not deport illegal aliens is Amnesty
This is just more Amnesty
Good point, and no, I cannot. In fact, I hope they were; the alternative is confounding.
Perhaps those people were brought in with her?
” I know of nobody in favor of any reform!
Not a soul.”
I know 2. ....out of many hundreds.
I think it's possible.
Here's my local paper's account of the meeting. Goodlatte is a true RINO squish.
