In Austin, Castro, Barbour Call for Immigration Reform
The Texas Tribune ^ | Reeve Hamilton

Posted on 04/10/2014 8:48:53 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

Democratic San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a Republican, both expressed optimism on Tuesday that Congress could pass comprehensive immigration reform this year.

Speaking at the Civil Rights Summit in Austin, Barbour said such reform is in the country's best interest, and told reporters it was too early to count the federal legislation out.

I call for reform too.

Now it's NO immigration until the borders and internal visa over stayers are fixed.

Castro’s mom, Maria, is also a La Raza community organizer.

Haley Barbour hanging out with Castro and 0 at a civil rights summit....pushing amnesty in Austin. Pathetic.

What the hell is going on with Barbour, anyway. I hadn’t heard that he had gone over to the commie ‘RAT Party.

I had to check with the EDD to see if someone was collecting state disability benefits and I gave them the social security number she used to get the job and I was told that there were at least 10 people in California who were using that specific SS number for employment purposes.

And, of course these people are just breaking the law because of an act of love.

“What Haley Barbour Didn’t Tell Fox News: He Lobbied For Mexico On “Amnesty”

“. According to a Justice Department filing by Barbour’s former lobbying firm, The Embassy of Mexico decided to retain Barbour’s services on August 15, 2001, to work on, among other things, legislation that would provide a path to citizenship for foreigners living illegally in the United States—what opponents of immigration reform call “amnesty.”

“Haley Barbour and I will lead the BG&R team,” wrote Lanny Griffith, Barbour’s former business partner, in the filing. According to subsequent filings, Barbour’s work included “building support in the legislative branch for passage of a bill related to Section 245(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.” As part of that work, Barbour’s firm arranged meetings and briefings with “Senators, members of Congress and their staffs, as well as Executive Branch Officials in the White House, National Security Council, State Department, and Immigration & Naturalization Service.” Barbour’s firm charged Mexico $35,000 a month, plus expenses.”

I like your idea of reform a whole lot better than the one Barbour and his ilk are pushing.

I guess people in MS, like in the other states, are usually wrong too.

I agree. Here's the necessary reform: JAIL for anyone who knowingly hires an illegal. That disposes of the American criminal class doing the hiring, and will result in the self-deportation of the invaders.

“Barbour said such reform is in the country’s best interest”

How many times are we expected to buy this tripe? The issue was supposed to be settled when Reagan made his deal. Instead, we got a twenty-fold (at least) increase in the illegal alien population. Every proposal since that has been more of the same.

Very few people in the GOP (and basically none on the other side) are willing to take the position of sending illegals home and not letting them come back. No one wants to offend the admittedly powerful Latino voting bloc, and no one wants to be the target of the inevitable “families ripped apart” stories the media will run 24-7.

It’s going to take, IMHO, some very principled and self-sacrificing politicians, (including one in the WH), who are willing to become pariahs and risk losing power to push through the kinds of reform we actually need - illegal aliens go home, borders secured for real, and anyone wanting to return has to go to the back of the waiting line.

(Sorry if that sounded angry, btw. Been kind of a long day today.)

I’m with you to a point, except I do support an amnesty. If you are in the country illegally you have 2 months to get out of our home!

The “native Americans” allowed unlimited immigration and it didn’t work out so well for them. Mexico allowed unlimited immigration to TX and that didn’t end well for them.

Those that fail to learn the lessons of history...

As previously opined, I'd suggest that Jeb, Rubio, Ryan, et. al. move to Mexico and make that place so attractive that I'd want to illegally immigrate there.

Thus solving the majority of the problem.

Haley Barbour has turned into being just a big GOP establishment redneck.

He was a clown-show after Katrina. I have no use for the guy.

Thanks for the headsup.

BEWARE THE CASTROS US Cong Julian Castro, San Antonio, his identical twin brother -- San Diego Mayor Julian Castro (now making the rounds of presidential primary states)....and Mamsita Castro---Maria “Rosie” Castro--hardline La Raza activist.

Freshman Cong Joaquín Castro warned last year that if Speaker Boehner adhered to his promise to invoke the so-called Hastert rule, the House will not pass comprehensive immigration reform last year.

So I guess that will put the kibosh to the ambitious Castro family's plans for America, thank God. God only knows how much San Diego tax money and Congressional tax money----from her sons----is going into furthering mamasita's La Raza activities.

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro---2012 Democrat convention keynoter---genially introduced the twins' mother, Maria “Rosie” Castro to the convention-goers. Mamasita Castro is a radical ethnocentric, anti-assimilationist....a key figure in the activities of the blood-thirsty, tax-funded “La Raza."

====================================================

AMERICANS ARE ALREADY FUNDING MAMASITA'S HATE-FILLED ORGANIZATION BIGTIME: In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to La Raza charter schools in the form of US Dept of Education grants.

LA RAZA schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce the teaching of murder and violence in US public schools, the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.

LA RAZA TEACHES HATE-AMERICA WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS La Raza Studies do not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323). The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America: “.......execute all white males over age 16,” (p 167--AKA the Plan of San Diego).

===============================================

La Raza also got Democrat Congressional earmarks and tax dollars for "mortgage counseling." The super-secret Congressional Hispanic Caucus calculatedly launched a housing initiative called "HOGAR"-- Spanish for home. Conspiract and collusion were the watchwords....... race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-called mortgage activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the falsifications of mortgage-application and the dumbing down of myge requirements and documentation standards.......which caused taxpayers to be socked w/ billions in bailouts as the US economy tanked.

La Raza aided and abetted risky federal and private-home loans to latinos over the last decade. thanks to the lending industry’s version of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” In addition to millions of federal tax dollars, La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling."

This is Amnesty no matter what is passed because 0bunghole will jerk around any immigration reform legislation he gets same as he jerked around Obama-Care...did it un-Constitutionally of course

Obama simply cannot be trusted to enforce parts of legislation he does not like. Anyone who does not know this by now is an idiot. Holder and Obama have shown this many times
