Skip to comments.Pelosi rallies Dems behind sweeping immigration proposal
Posted on 10/02/2013 1:41:03 PM PDT by Alissa
House Democratic leaders unveiled legislation Wednesday to overhaul the nation's broken immigration system and create a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal residents.
The sweeping proposal, which largely mirrors the bipartisan package approved by the Senate in June, is designed to keep the immigration issue in the headlines and intensify the pressure on GOP leaders to bring a reform bill to the floor.

These people who let anyone onto our military bases to massacre anyone they want are now going to apply this philosophy to the US border....
I suppose this is another huge s*** sandwich like Obamacare:
We won’t know what’s in it until we sink our teeth into it.
Democrats: can’t live with `em, can’t shoot `em ............
I hear Eric Cantor is working “behind the scenes” on an amnesty bill himself.
The demonrats one-two punch...and they think we can’t handle it!
How about we sweep out the capitol instead?
OK, apparently that is going to be the leverage on the “pass a clean CR” demand.
Pass it, swallow bammycare and then negotiate on amnesty.
Interesting timing, what with the “big meeting with little bammy” going on right no in Congress...
I am betting there is an amnesty vote and a debt ceiling increase in exchange for a 1 year Obamacare freeze, which will go into effect on Jan 1, 2015.
Yep, that's my thought.
If anyone thinks Boehner is standing strong they are going to be in for a big surprise.
Boehner, Ryan and Rubio want millions of Socialist loving third world scum to get citizenship -- it consolidates more power in D.C.
There are at least 30 million illegal criminal invaders waiting for the chance to help bring America to it's knees
There is a 100% certainty that the end result of all this posturing by the RINOcrats in D.C. is that Conservatives and the Constitution will be screwed.
Immigration is the death of this Republic.
The 30M + illegal criminals aren't here to work, they are here to conquer and transform our Republic into a third world sewer.
Does anyone here know why we need to do anything about immigration, except for enforcing laws that are now on the books? What’s the rush?
I realize that something needs to be done to secure cheap farm labor, but I see no need for anything else.
Also, I see a troubling pattern relating to cheap labor - first the blacks, next the Chinese (mostly for the railroads), and now people to our south. This ‘pattern’ hasn’t really been a good thing for America over time.
Perhaps we should all pay more for some manual labor intensive services and products to avoid having to secure cheap labor from other countries.
Only “broken” because the Laws against Illegal entry, Id fraud, tax fraud, benefit fraud... are NOT enforced.
This is perfect. The Democrats are choosing the Latinos over the blacks in their coalition.
What’s really happened here is that Democratic policies have destroyed black families and culture. They’re replacing the bottom rungs of employment with Latinos, mostly from Mexico.
Blacks, displaced by discriminatory licensing and employment rules, are further displaced by hardworking, low wage illegal immigrants. It is terrible for them and for the nation.
That may change one day.
sounds like what terrorists do: bomb several places at same time.
The only pathway they need is one that leads back to the border. They need to go home to the socialist crap-holes they came from.
Think of all the 'illegal aliens become citizens' applying for 0bamacare. Think of all these new citizens dragging their families over here to get their free stuff!
Nancy, you disgust me you old hag.
Illegals get the country and we get Obamacare.

BTW, the Senate Immigration (gag) Reform Bill Protects slimy, corrupt Latino Public Officials in US positions of power (like the ones pictured) from prosecution for crimes committed in office.
What is broken about our immigration system? Seems to work fine. The problem is the borders are open and people are breaking our laws.
The federal government has all but destroyed this country, devalued our dollar and borrowed trillions from Communist countries.
The Fedgov intentionally aided and abetted an epic decades long country killing illegal invasion of tens of millions, which changed our history and resulted in our very electoral process being undermined and compromised.
A government that will not secure and defend it’s own legitimate borders and sovereignty, will itself become illegitimate and illegal.
The only thing that is stopping this is the stupidity of Democrats.
First they promote Rubio who had no chance of being president. Let Republicans act as if immigration is the only reason Rubio is losing support.
Then they attack Grassley and King making predictions about the Boston bombing.
Schumer made a bill so bad that even Boehner said he wanted majority support. Whether not that was true. But the problem for hispanderers was the it was Steve King’s caucus who pushed all along for the majority of majority vote. Now La Raza can make ads about Cantaloupes and Boehner pretending to cave to King.
Steve King is the only congressman to have passed an illegal immigration amendment so far this year. How can they hispander out of this?
Then Dems pull out an amnesty bill and interfere with Goodlatte, Gowdy and Cantor pushing amnesty lite. They have Raul Grijalva saying he doesnt want a secure border because Mexicans should be allowed a free education every day.
Id suggest Lynn Jenkins is a leadership person who should have bunch of ads run against her.

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.
Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
[but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
Well, we CLEARLY need an immigration bill that is 12,302,953,495,594,823 pages long, and we shouldn’t allow anyone to read it until we pass it!
Oh, hey, by the way, Nancy, you freakin cocaine-snorting nutjob:
THE F*****G GOVERNMENT IS SHUT DOWN
CONCENTRATE ON THAT
LOL! Government shutdown is sweet music. I loathe the US Government.
They are nothing but a bunch of socialists totally removed from the founding of this Nation.
While I get the loathing, I can’t go quite that far...I served for ten years and was very proud to do so...
It’s just too damn big and with the crew presently in charge, we see what happens when the Constitution, laws and leadership responsibilities are disrespected and ignored so I don’t blame you!
I think there will always be a tenuous relationship between a “free” people and their govt...we just need to get things back to emphasis on free instead of govt....if we can.
The rush is to get the 60 million illegals registered to vote before the November 2014 elections.
One way or another, the dimrats will get that done.
Remember, the laws are what ever Obama/holder say they are.
If the illegals were going to solidly vote republican, the dims would be employing the military to get them all out and would lock down the border like the old USSR.
