Skip to comments.Congress Open to Passing Bill on Immigration (Citizenship for 20 million illegals!)
Posted on 12/04/2006 6:58:29 AM PST by kellynla
Congress will approve an immigration bill that will grant citizenship rights to most of the 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens in the U.S. after Democrats take control next month, predict both sides on Capitol Hill. While Republicans have been largely splintered on the issue of immigration reform, Democrats have been fairly unified behind the principle that the illegals currently in the country should get citizenship rights without having to first leave the country.

"George Bush is playing right into the hands of the Dems and their amnesty plan."
Makes you wonder what party he really belongs to.
Does it include $50 / hour lettuce picking jobs for American workers?
And el Presidente Arbusto will sign it, too.
The Barbarian invasions continue and they're winning.
If the left was against this it would be "racist oppression".
This is the article I was talking about.
If conservatives had realized that his guest worker program would have screened out everyone who did not have a job and an employer willing to vouch for them this number would be about 20% of what is given here. All that shamnesty stuff gives us lots more welfare recipients etc. You should learn that politics is the art of the possible not of temper tantrums and thumping your chest asserting "we are the base".
If ever such a thing should come to pass, Heaven forbid, I would hope that the "seceeding" states would be sure to make sure that THEY retain the label of United States of America and maintain the same Constitution.
Once the restraining influence of those states is removed, the "rump" would quickly spiral out of control, and would likely move into direct rebellion against that supreme law of the land, thus justifying the decision to seperate.
Personally, I pray this never happens.
The question really is when is it going to happen and what issue is going to force the split/fight. This is one of the reasons why I'm not very optimistic about the future. Everyone sees the divisions and everyone realizes on some level that these divisions aren't going to be healed by "talking to each other".
Didn't stay home, but I'm going to keep blaming them, yes. While the Democrats were the main supporters for Shamnesty, the President's support for it, along with 'Pubbie Congressional Leadership (esp. in the Senate) dumped this steaming pile square in the 'Pubbies lap. It IS their fault.
Maybe if they showed some spine on the issue we might have retained some more seats... But 'Pubbie Congresscirtters have their spines removed operations at Bethesda shortly after they're elected.
LOL, diddee hit a nerve there? XD
Twenty years from now, people will wonder why we didn't listen to him.
"If they try this we the LEGAL law abiding citizens of this country are going to have to raise absolute hell in the public forum." Oh but the democRATS response will be: Buscamos igualdad para todas los habitantes de este país. (Can't read the Spanish sounds like you need to get with the program and learn the new language of America.)
I don't believe they have enough of a majority to do what this article claims. What I *do* believe they have is the majority necessary to pass the senate bill from last year.
As soon as they're Americans, they'll stop doing the jobs American won't do, right?
Yup. You've got it. Enjoy your minorty party.
Basically, corporate and government sponsored elitist oligarchies to 'manage' the world.
If we don't stop this... it's over... kaput... lights out.
This is the senate bill that Bush said he would get behind.
It is not amnesty for all, but it comes close.
Right! Then we have another wave of illegals to replace them..
Then we have another wave of illegals to replace them..
"Now of course they're going to squeal the loudest and blame the GOP some more."
GWB will sign it into law.
oh ya, w're gnna have a tsunami of illegals that makes what has come up to now look mild. I'm sure its started. Gotta get here in time for l'amnestia.
The guest worker proposal was a lot more limited, but R's wouldn't get behind it. Please see the folly of that.
"If conservatives had realized that his guest worker program would have ...............bla, bla, bla"
It would have done nothing to stop the inflow of illegals.
All I can figure is these people are too young to remember when the dems were last in charge of congress or 1991 when a lot of "us" jumped ship.
This goes beyond amnesty. Amnesty doesn't involve automatic citizenship. You're now in inane response mode.
President will sign it into law as soon as it is passed. Thanks President for destroying our America.
"President Bush will be the biggest cheerleader out there for this."
What do you mean, WILL BE? We wouldn't be in this situation if it hadn't been for him. Just couldn't shut up about shamnesty,,,, wouldn't protect this country by securing our borders, without shamnesty,,,,, divided the party over shamnesty, lost majority because of shamnesty.
If, IN SPITE OF WHAT BUSH WANTS, the American people, every single one of us, not just the minutemen, not just the AFR, and not just the small grassroots groups, but ALL of us, if we don't organize and take to the streets as the illegals and their supporters did to make OUR demands heard, we deserve what we get.
Does anyone know of any plans to do this? Dang it, if their voices can be heard and resulted in S2611, why can't ours?
That is not the subject. It would not have paid off the national debt, either.
You may be right about that. Which is exactly why allowing the Dems to take control of the house will now have the exact opposite result of what the idiots who wanted to "teach the GOP a lesson" wanted. They can't differentiate between Bush and congress. The bill was bottled up in the house before.
What I remember is the hope I had when the Republicans came into power in 94. Bitter memory now.
Yea well .. then the dems will be issuing them all one of these
Well, it was a nice experiment in individualism and small-government while it lasted. We proved that it works and is a path to success. Maybe some other nation will give it a try someday. Until then, maybe my future generations should find a nice Carribean Island somewhere.
I think we will see it sooner than we think
I wonder why they even bother? Just do nothing, instead of making it worse. Once they get legal, they will just demand what most Americans get for pay. They aren't going to work for illegal pay anymore. You know, they do jobs we won't. What makes anyone think when they are legal they will?
But who will lead us?
And the sad part about it all is that other than Dick Cheney, I don't see any Republican on the horizon to vote for POTUS in 2008. And he has repeatedly said "I'm not running."
Well hell, let's put up a BIG Welcome sign on the border too!
Never mind, I guess this bill will do just that......
It looks like Sam Brownback is gearing up for a run. I think there's a good chance he could get it since McCain/Giuliani would split the moderate-liberal vote. But he'll need $.
