GROVELAND, Fla. — In the five weeks since he declared his support for a comprehensive immigration overhaul, U.S. Rep. Daniel Webster has gotten an earful.

One constituent told the second-term Republican that immigrants carry disease. Another said immigrants would steal jobs away from Americans.

It's not "band of republicans." A collective of roaches is called an intrusion of roaches.

Tell that to New York and California who are expieriencing a resurgence of 'whooping cough' , and medication resistant TB.
When you open your border to third-world immigrants , you also allow entry of those same third-world diseases.
Many countries don't have the same vaccines or medical care that used to be here.
We have already taxed the American public into "Mengele-Care ™” , and are awaiting it to kick in.

There will be no amnesty in the House. Zero. and these “do good” illegal alien loving republicrats are getting Tea partied real Bad. The Tea Party lives large . They will not be put down by political persecution. The Tea Party lives and will knock out Boehner and all amnesty loving POC. We are not going to lay down , I assure you. Impeach obama, defund Obamacare and no damned amnesty or you need to get your old job back quick.

Getting rid of these cowardly Republicans would send a message to others that they better put their country first.

Be that as it may, it is not a major point in opposition.

I do not doubt that. But, good luck with getting the LIV to absorb and believe it. What works is the economic impact.

I maintain that is a losing proposition to bring disease into the debate. You will never be able to document it (HIPPA) and you get painted with a “you hate sick people” tag.

We need to keep our eyes on the prize. Syria is a sideshow Obama is using to sneak amnesty by us.

They helped bring back Whooping Cough in our area.

We are now told that we "need to renew our immunizations every 'few years!'"

More that forty years ago and doing just fine until a huge influx of illegals, an outbreak of Whooping Cough, so now WE must "renew our childhood immunizations."

Very true. If these immigrants are given a path to citizenship, there will be no rhetorical cover for any of the current crop of RINO's, and for that matter all current Republicans, to hide behind in the next election. Perhaps they have some pipe dream about being nice to the illegals that they will turn out and save their jobs in the next election, or at least that's what Schumer is blowing up everyone's a $ $.

I wish someone would post the names of those Republicans in this "band" of vipers so we could concentrate our freeping efforts on them.

Too bad the writer was too lazy to do so.

This country is so over.

Someone needs to tell Benjamin Franklin we couldn’t keep it.

Looks like Congressman Webster has a bad case of the RINO virus.

It could be fatal to his political future.

The real disease:

Loss of national sovereignty.

Loss of our territorial integrity.

Destruction of the rule of law.

Damaged national security.

Massive economic and governmental burdens imposed upon an already over-burdened, struggling citizenry.

Increase in the debts that this generation cannot possibly repay, thereby imposing burdens upon our posterity to which they did not consent.

Electoral disaster.

That’s just for starters...

There was some sort of conference recently in Orlando involving major American businesses talking about building new manufacturing plants in America to replace ones in the Far East.

We know manufacturing plants were in the Far East because of cheap labor.

Are they coming back to America because the business leaders know there’s a pool of cheap labor to do the trabajo (work) in our future because of amnesty???????

Yep. I noticed that, too. No names to shame. The *report* only mentions "about two dozen GOP lawmakers who support an eventual path to citizenship for millions of people who are living in the U.S. illegally."

Here's more....

Most Republicans oppose this approach on citizenship, and there is little political incentive for them to change their minds. Only 24 of 233 Republicans represent districts where more than one-quarter of their constituents are Hispanic.

Supporters of a path to citizenship point to demographic changes and business backing that have helped sway Webster, who for years opposed immigrant-rights legislation, as potential motives for wavering lawmakers to sign on.

-----------------------------------

Boils down to the fact that some of these *conservatives*, many who rode in on the Tea Party wave, have had their districts redrawn, and are now kowtowing to the more hispanic numbers in their newly drawn districts.

COWARDS!

“Another said immigrants would steal jobs away from Americans.”

What they are doing is driving wages down. Especially in the trades which have already been hammered by unemployment.

The Syria war bs is put out there to distract us from the Amnesty bill that is coming up. It’s to get us thinking about syria while they pass the amnesty bill behind our backs So we don’t lobby our congressmen to not pass amnesty

call Congress . tell them no immigration related bill from the House as any could be merged with the Senate amnesty bill. Focus people

Focus on stopping the amnesty bill and call out crap like the syria crap.

99% of the media news stories are to distract us from what the government is doing or to advance the socialist/democrat agenda. it’s not news
