Posted on 03/24/2019 4:58:32 PM PDT by Theoria
A bipartisan deal to bring millions of immigrants out of the shadows, and pay for a secure border.
Americans are frustrated by the inaction of their federal government on comprehensive immigration reform and border security. So are we.
We both represent districts on Long Island, and we have both worked on immigration-related issues for over 25 years one of us, Representative Suozzi, from the perspective of immigrants rights as a mayor, as a county executive and now as a member of Congress; the other, Representative King, from the perspective of border security as a former county comptroller, and now as a congressman and former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.
We come at this from different points of view and different parties, but with a shared commitment to finding a solution to our countrys border-security issues. Together, we have found common ground to address the problems faced by undocumented immigration and the need for robust border security.
For more than 30 years, our government has failed to solve these problems. This year, the American people endured the longest government shutdown in American history when lawmakers and the president failed to reach a spending deal that centered around border security and immigration along the United States and Mexican border.

Heads up, amnesty pimps are out again.
Mexicans and Arabs and somalis go home, and we get our country back in exchange?
What do they propose doing about the remaining 20 million illegal aliens?
Trump proposed something similar to this back during the 1st shutdown in Jan 2018 in exchange for several pro-border and immigration reforms but was shut down by Schumer.
Before any citizenship is entertained to the children of illegals, the border should be shut down first with a concrete and steel wall built. English should be the official language. Sanctuary cities and states should be outlawed. Mandatory E-verify. Remittances taxed. And no taxpayer benefits to illegals.
They never rest.
The only thing i trust is when soneone says 20 million are going to be deported
Illegals Out of U.S.!
BUILD THE WALL. PERIOD EXCLAMATION POINT!
Bring illegals out to kick out?
Im old enough to remember the fraud of the Simpson-Mazzoli Act. No deal without wall funding and buildout FIRST!
The millennia of blood and sweat that resulted in our Constitution should not be sacrificed to fools, lawbreakers and political expediency.
We give the Democrats 20 million new voters and permanent control of the White House, Congress, and the Supreme Court.
Then, the Democrats give us....
What exactly do the Democrats give us?
We’ve compromised our republic away. Reach across the aisle.
Yeah, Flimsey Grahamnesty is totally on our side....../s
I know what I propose - eVerify and deport those who remain.
You like being played for a sucker? The only thing I'll trust is an announcement that 20 million HAVE BEEN deported. Even then, I'd prefer documentary evidence of them all leaving en masse.
