Posted on 09/03/2013 11:51:25 AM PDT by markomalley
Members of Congress, home for the August recess, have been surprised at the intensity of opposition to proposed legislation to solve Americas immigration problem. Most members figured they were going to hear about Obamacare, the debt ceiling, and lingering unemployment. Instead, as they attend town halls and talk to the voters, immigration more often than not is the topic of the hour, and plenty of voters have made it clear that they don't like what the Senate passed and dont want it to become law.
The Senates so-called Gang of Eight bill, which the Obama Administration supports without exception, provides amnesty to most of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, provided they meet a set of legal conditions and jump through a series of bureaucratic hoops. While the conventional wisdom states that Gang of Eight is dead on arrival in the Republican-controlled House, nobody really knows what the final product will look likeor whether there will even be a final vote on it at all.
What we do know is that the people in charge of actually enforcing our countrys immigration laws dont think much of what the politicians are trying to do. In fact, many are not convinced the Obama Administration and the rest of Washington politicians who support the Senate bill are even particularly committed to the fight against illegal immigration.
Many law enforcement professionals who put their lives on the line trying to keep the border secureand all of whom have taken oaths to uphold the Constitution and the lawsee this as another example of the Obama administrations lack of respect for the rule of law.

Conventional wisdom is no longer a guide to anything. I would never have imagined Boehner and Cantor walking out of a meeting with Obama arm-in-arm with McCain and Lindsey Graham in favor of Syrian intervention.
Was listening to the guy subbing for Glenn Beck this morning and he had on the producer of Coming To America. We have a huge crisis on our hands if this piece of chit legislation passes....we will continue to slice away at our children’s opportunities and THAT alone pizzes me off! Besides continuing to let drug traffickers, Hezbolah, and Al Qaeda types into our Country...this is a huge isssue and can’t be over looked.

We’ve been screaming to seal the borders and enforce EXISTING law since 9/11. Hard to believe any lawmaker is truly ‘surprised’ at the opposition to this nonsense.
Any politician surprised by this does not really work for the people of tge US but for their major donors and their interests.
