Skip to comments.Horowitz: Forget Amnesty, Congress Voted to Give Welfare to Illegal Immigrants
Posted on 06/13/2014 7:20:00 PM PDT by blueyon
Many Republican supporters of loose borders, along with quite a few Democrats, vehemently deny that they support amnesty. They contend that merely asking illegal aliens to pay a fine and back-taxes in return for legal status is not amnesty. Fox Newss Brit Hume passionately denounced those who refer to some of the immigration proposals in Congress as amnesty.
But amnesty means an act of forgiveness for past offenses, especially to a class of persons as a whole. What else would you call granting legal status, let alone the privilege of full blown citizenship, to millions of people who came to the U.S. illegally?
Even beyond amnesty itself, Congress seems to trip over itself providing benefits to people who came to the U.S. illegally. Just look at the inability of the GOP-controlled House to deny aliens welfare and benefits even before they are granted legal status.

Even the compassion of the wicked is cruel.
The conditions for citizenship need to be strengthened, even among those who were born in this land. Too many have been born and raised in this land who have never been taught the difference between world citizenship and US Citizenship. The two are by no means synonymous.
I remember George W. Bush saying, “It’s not amnesty, because we’re not giving them automatic citizenship.” BIG DEAL. You’re still letting them stay! You’re still not punishing them for the crime of coming here illegally.
These people really think the American people are stupid.
Soon law makers will hand Mexico the deed to America ..Congress of late is trying to give illegals everything like they on the game show price is right...spin the big wheel for green card,for free college education, free medical care for life.etc,etc... All congress can talk about is how much more we should to give to all the illegals illegals ..They are coming by the thousands catch and release and no real enforcement of our laws..
Good Lord! What were they thinking?
Gohmert's amendment would've saved a piddly $17 million and forced HUD to stop subsidizing illegals with Section 8 housing.
And 70 Republicans voted against it!
The GOP has a death wish.
The NSA must have some stuff on Hume. He’s moving to the left very quickly.
America, is gone. :-(
We’re broke! On top of envy thing else wrong with these moves, does anyone in DC remember that??.
Envy = every...
No citizenship? NO PROBLEM! They get welfare, get to vote, EITC, drive with no insurance...all the benefits and none of the responsibilities.
If the federal government cannot handle the thousand of illegal immigrant children crossing the border everyday, how in the world will it be able to process 20 million illegal immigrants already here if it passes amnesty laws?
Well, if we give them enough money we won’t have any left and they’ll have to go home.
