Senators Offer a Bipartisan Blueprint for Immigration (Amnesty bill written by RINO Hatch)
NY Times ^ | 1/28/13 | JULIA PRESTON

Posted on 01/28/2013 6:03:17 AM PST by jimbo123

A bipartisan group of senators has agreed on a set of principles for a sweeping overhaul of the immigration system, including a pathway to American citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants that would hinge on progress in securing the borders and ensuring that foreigners leave the country when their visas expire.

-snip-

“We on the Democratic side have said that we are flexible and we want to get a bill,” Mr. Schumer told reporters in New York on Sunday. “But there’s a bottom line, and that’s a path to citizenship for the 11 or so million people who qualify. We’ve made great, great progress with our Republican colleagues.”

...and what if they don’t want to become “citizens”, and would rather exist as parasites, no regulations to deal with, can always file for a tax refund claiming 16 nephews and nieces to the tune of $25,000 that no one checks on and really can’t be bothered....
NO PROSECUTION,NO ENFORCEMENT,...it’s too big to deal with, but we’ll do our best to get FREE MEDICAL,FREE EDUCATION, FREE HOUSING, and FREE MONEY....DON’T FORGET TO VOTE DEMOCRATIC Amigo

At least we held off on this amnesty crap until after the economy tanked. I don’t think there’s much incentive for these people to become citizens anymore, as illegals have been granted so damn many benefits already without the benefit of being on the IRS’s radar.

The thing that pisses me off most is the fact that these RINOs are using the democrat strategy of overwhelming the public.

I can multitask beyotches.

I offer here an admonition for Senator Hatch.

THE GOATHERD AND THE WILD GOATS (an Aesop fable)

A goatherd was tending his goats out at pasture when he saw a number of wild goats approach and mingle with his flock. At the end of the day he drove them home and put them all into the pen together. Next day the weather was so bad that he could not take them out as usual, so he kept them at home in the pen and fed them there. He only gave his own goats enough food to keep them from starving, but he gave the wild goats as much as they could eat and more, for he was very anxious for them to stay, and he thought that if he fed them well they wouldn’t want to leave him.

When the weather improved he took them all out pasture again, but no sooner had the got near the hills than the wild goats broke away from the flock and scampered off. The goatherd was very much disgusted at this and roundly abused them for their ingratitude. ‘Rascals!’ he cried. ‘To run away like that after the way I’ve treated you!’

Hearing this, one of them turned round and said, ‘Oh yes, you treated us right - too well, in fact. It was just that which put us on our guard. If you treat newcomers like ourselves so much better than your own flock, it’s more than likely that, if another lot of strange goats joined yours, we should be neglected in favor of the last comers.’

Compromise is vastly over rated.

Ayn Rand:

“Amnesty 2013. RINOS surrender to Obama and the RATS once again.”

And they are all surrendering to the 3rd world.

Here’s today’s quiz, class:

When the GOP helps Obama surrender to millions of foreigners living here illegally, how many minutes will it take for ten millions more to figure out that they, too, can get amnesty?

All they have to do is sneak into the US and then start clamoring for citizenship. The Evil Party and the Stupid & Craven Party will give it to them. The more that come here, the more the GOP will be whoring after them and turning themselves into a left wing party.

And you will be taxed to support them. Get ready for graffiti and gangs to come to your neighborhood real soon. Get ready to be surprised when you hear English spoken in public. What happened to California will happen to you.

What part of ‘illegal’ do these Senators and Representatives not understand?

They are putting out the same old canards: enforce border security, yada yada yada.

How did that work out in the previous amnesty bills? Answer: It didn’t, because they never bothered TO enforce the border security.

Definition of 'insanity': Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

How many previous amnesties have expected a different result?

Yet, a decade or so later, politicians push ANOTHER amnesty-with-more-border-security bill to make up for the lack of enforcement of the PREVIOUS amnesty-with-more-border-security.

I hate to throw cold water on Orrin and Marco’s grand scheme but polls have shown that only about 20% of illegals have any desire to become American citizens. Most of them are proud to be Mexican and they are basically here for the goodies. They don’t want to speak English or give up their citizenship they just want to work, send money home get free eductions for their kids, healthcare etc.

So bottom line if given amnesty out of 11 million only about 2.2 million are going to come out of the shadows.

The other obvious problem is that we all know the border will not be secure and millions more will come across.

What good ole Orrin and Marco won’t bother to tell you is that we already have at least 4 guest worker programs right now that allow people to come in, work and then go home. The other thing they won’t tell you is that approx 75% of the folks who pick our crops are American citizens.

The political elite want a good flow of illegals coming into this country for reasons that are not clear to me but I’m sure are to them. Its going to continue and I doubt that anything other than the 1776 solution is going to change it.

RINOS surrender to Obama and the RATS once again.

"Sarah Palin endorsed Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch Tuesday night, throwing her support behind the six-term incumbent who is facing a primary race against former state Sen. Dan Liljenquist, who is supported by tea party groups."

So much for Palin's unparalleled and unerring conservative vision, huh?

Palin and Hatch are personal friends. Sometimes friendship trumps politics. But he’s still a terrible RINO.

>> Sometimes friendship trumps politics.

Sure, and that’s to be expected. But it’s problematic when friendship trumps character and good judgment, too.

I’ll choose not to follow (or fund) such a one who allows friendship to cloud her judgment and interfere with her claimed purpose.

Hatch is Mark Levin’s fault.

At least in part. When it comes to picking candidates, Levin is not the best one to listen to, even though he is the best one for legal issues and some other analysis.

Yes, Mark Levin was pushing Hatch over a Tea Party Conservative during the GOP primary race in Utah. I specifically remember his cheer leader like interview with Hatch, and his vocal support of Hatch

I do not trust Levin. He acted like a vagina on the Obama Eligibility issue....when he spends alot of time bragging about getting Clintons law license taken over Monica Lewinsky/Paula Jones.....an Ineligible President less important than a horny one? He is Pp also good buddies with Amnesty Liberal Sean Hannity.....wonder when he boards the bus for the “Hannity Amnesty” tour

When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss amnesty ?

Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.

Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.

Americans can’t own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash they’ll get unceremoniously sent back or put in jail untill some relative comes up with the “fresh”. That’s just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea let’s give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections .
