Time is now for immigration reform
The Hill ^ | 12/19/13 | Jeb Bush Jr.

Posted on 12/20/2013 3:18:48 PM PST by jimbo123

As our members of Congress head home to enjoy the holiday recess and start of the New Year, I look back at all the progress we’ve made on immigration in 2013 — building a nationwide coalition of leaders who carry a bible, wear a badge or own a business — and I look forward to what 2014 holds in store for reform.

Wide acknowledgement from Republican House leadership — and support among Republican constituents — shows that immigration reform is definitely not a “dead” issue, but one with great opportunity in 2014.

Every member of the House leadership team has expressed commitment to move reform forward in 2014, and each week the number of rank and file Republicans in favor of reform grows.

In 2013 we made great strides toward a successful 2014 for immigration. Considering that just over a year ago this issue was on the sidelines, the fact that the home stretch is in sight is no small accomplishment.

2014 stands to be that blockbuster year that finally takes reform across the finish line.

Just like it was time for Obamacare.

This isn’t “reform” anymore than it was the “Affordable Care” Act.

Why? Is America running out of poverty and freeloaders? You turds are going to give them government freebies paid for by the taxpayers and they are going to go home, take siestas and what for their U.S. Government check to show up. People like Jeb Bush are total morons.

Time is now for Americans to have jobs.

Bush 41: “Read my lips, no new taxes”.

Bush 43: “Just doing jobs Americans refuse to do”.

Me, 2013: NO MORE BUSHES.

A great reform would be to enforce the law, and to end benefits for people who break the law.

Illegal aliens and their children should be shipped back to their home country. I am all for reuniting families, in their home country.

Illegal aliens should be forever banned from legal US immigration.

Yes, it is time for reform.

The policies of open borders and kissing the butts of illegals isn’t working.

Time to stop ignoring the law.

Time to start enforcing the law.

Time to stop rewarding criminal trespassing illegals with free stuff.

Time to impeach politicians who ignore the law, their oaths of office and the US Constitution.

Time to prosecute politicians who knowingly break the law.

That’s the kind of reform we need !

call congress and tell them no immigration related bill from the House as it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty bill.

if these democrats and Jeb Bush want illegals to come here so much then these democrats should let illegal live in their own homes. adopt a Mexican man, somali man etc. go ahead and leave us alone. go ahead pelosi adopt some Mexicans

The only goddamned immigration problem we have is that no one in the GOP in DC has the nerve to enforce current laws designed to make the crooks self deport.

The pro illegal alien crowd is nothing more than a bunch of communist fronts allied with big business designed to screw the middle class from both sides.

Hell no, time to fight the communists and the blue bloods in the streets.

Degenerate little twerps Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush Jr.(who never had real jobs in their lives) and their minions in the RNC want to legalize 11 million criminal aliens and import another 20 million on top of that, further depressing the stagnant wages of the middle class that are being further eroded by higher taxes and the unprecedented grand theft of disposable income if you actually use your medical insurance to go to the Hospital.

All in the name of allegiance to the blue bloods and country clubbers who are the ticket to more power.

Sociopaths like Rubio and Jeb Jr. and that degenerate SCUMBAG REINCE PRIEBUS (who should have RESIGNED after losing to the communists) make me want to vomit.

Seek mental help RNC , or join the communist party USA, they have the same position on illegal immigration as you do.

A Look Back At The Stalkerish Past Of The Bush Dynasty’s Future Star (George P Bush, another one of Jeb’s offspring)

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/george-p-bush/george-p-bush-stalking-758409

Back when he was a Rice University student, Bush was investigated for burglary and criminal mischief related to a 4 AM visit to the Miami home of his ex, Cristina Cohen, and her parents.

A Miami-Dade Police Department report includes an account of the December 31, 1994 incident provided to cops by Murry Cohen, Cristina’s father.

According to Cohen, Bush—wearing black shorts and no shirt—arrived at the residence and “went to his daughter’s bedroom window,” pulled it open, and “pushed the screen inward.” As Bush was “climbing in the window,” Murry Cohen awoke and spotted the trespasser. A neighbor of the Cohens also spotted Bush trying to get into the residence and began to argue with him.

With his intrusion thwarted, Bush “backed out of the window.” Cohen reported seeing Bush then “jump into a vehicle and flee.” But he would not be gone for long.

Bush returned to the home 20 minutes later and drove his car through the Cohens’s yard, causing damage to about 80 feet of the lawn.

Here is my plan (again) for immigration reform.

Forget ICE. They will NEVER secure the border at any price.

Place a bounty of $1000/head on any illegal alien, payable to whatever legal citizen brings them in. I know rednecks who will make $300,000 per year collecting bounties. The fear of being accosted by armed, real Americans might even cause some illegals to go home on their own.

Ship most of them back to Mexico by train on a daily basis.

Deduct the expense of transporting others from the Foreign Aid payments to their respective homelands.

For $20 Billion or so, you will deport 20 million illegals within a few years.

Give the taxpayers a break with the money saved through disbanding ICE.

It’s worse than just violating the border. Illegals in the country aren’t even subjected to most any of our laws.

Try moving several small families into your home and see how long the local government comes knocking. Illegals do it with impunity.

Try leaving your yard unattended in the home owner’s association and see your board fine you. Illegals just ingore it.

Illegals break all kinds of laws and almost never get arrested or put in jail. Every time some illegal kills someone driving drunk in my state of TN it usually comes out they had multiple DUI tickets.

the democrat party wants amnesty for illegals as that will create tens of millions of new democrat voters and inundate the USA with countless millions of 3rd world socialist immigrants. the last amnesty turned California blue. this next one will turn texas blue and the rest of the U.S.. blue and socialist

It's just so frustrating that the central issue rarely gets openly discussed. I think that for most Americans, the real question is this: Do we want more or fewer Mexicans living, working and voting in the United States?

I think it really is that simple and we should be allowed to discuss and decide the issue for ourselves in an open, honest way. Everyone knows how the Chamber of Commerce, the hospitality industry and the other big employers feel. Should we let them decide this issue without ever addressing the central concerns of ordinary Americans?

The only thing about immigration that needs “reforming” are the ethics and accountability of those responsible for enforcing the laws which are already on the books.

Sadly, the reason for this is that it is a PITA to arrest snd book an illegal. It’s also pointless, because they will be released and never actually show up for trial anyway.

Bush is just another member of the political elite that has nothing but contempt for the middle-class.

He’s made his millions and the rest of us need to pay more taxes and have our wages driven into the basement.
