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.
