Posted on 10/27/2013 7:51:29 AM PDT by jimbo123
Republican Rep. Jeff Denham will break with his party and back a broad immigration reform proposal supported by Democrats.
The California congressman told Univision that he would become the first Republican co-sponsor of an immigration bill written by House Democrats that would bolster border security and provide a pathway to citizenship for many of the 11.7 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.
Yes, I will be the first Republican coming together on this full bill dealing with all aspects of immigration, he told Univision anchor Jorge Ramos in Spanish during an interview that will air on Al Punto this Sunday.
Its about coming up with a solution thats bipartisan; Republicans and Democrats coming together, he added.
Im going to continue to encourage more and more Republicans to come on board, Denham said.

Remove him from office. He is trying to consign us to a low wage future, and huge tax increases for whoever does manage to earn a living. He is the enemy within.
Rand Pauls immigration speech

...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]
You killed that "conversation" in a heartbeat, because it's so easy to do. With our current unemployment rate, a proper bounty system would have them self-deported in a matter of months. We simply cannot start with a system that declares that we will reward only the most successful lawbreakers.
Both the < blockquote> tag and the < dir> tag accomplish that well.
California has — for all practical purposes — been annexed by Mexico. It should come as no surprise that California politicians — of whatever party — are eager to follow the dictates of their Mexican masters.
Yep, Denhams district is heavy illegals..lots of farmland.
“Its about coming up with a solution thats bipartisan”
The solution is: enforce existing law.
There are nowhere near the number of “undocumented immigrants” as there are illegal aliens.
You are not an immigrant until you make a declaration that you are.
Illegal aliens are here to take advantage of the cash flow from us thru the governments to them, and/or they are here for other purposes *than being immigrants and loyal American citizens.*
An “illegal immigrant” is an immigrant who does something illegal.
There are distinctions, and conservatives and Republicans should make an effort to be so clear.
Dollars are getting scarcer and scarcer in our country and our wallets. How many are shipped over the border every year? I wonder who has these outflow figures.What an enormous scam being perpetrated on us, the producers!
Great. Another effing RINO.
Make this a:
Publish / forward widely.
That is the place to start.
Change should be done only to make existing law successful.
Thanks, no harm done. :’)

We're gonna need it for the looming battle, folks. We have to arm ourselves NOW.
EVERYBODY, TAKE A LOOK-SEE AT THE WEBSITE LINKED IN BLATHERNAUT'S POST ABOVE !!!
