Dems & RINOs Get Together to Legalize Illegals


On Sunday, Democrats and Republicans announced that they will be putting forth a one-step bipartisan bill which will put down a path to allow some 22-31 million illegal aliens living in the United States to not face the consequences of their illegal actions, but rather be placed on a road to citizenship. A six member group in the Senate is working on the legislation.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) told Fox News Sunday that, “We are committed to a comprehensive approach to immigration that we can live with."

“Sitting in these meetings with three Democrats and three Republicans, working on this immigration issue has been as encouraging as the rules vote on Thursday night," he said.

“We are trying to work our way through some very difficult issues but we are committed to working on a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law we can live with,” he added.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) told Fox he is optimistic but “details matter.”

“We’re at the talking points stage,” he said. “We need to get to the legislation.”

On ABC's This Week, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) said, “I’m quietly optimistic we can get it done.”

Many of the usual culprits in legislation like this, are South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham, New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez, and Florida Republican Marco Rubio.

Heading the subcommittee is New York Democrat Chuck Schumer.

The Hill reports,

Rubio in the past supported a piecemeal approach, however. And while Rubio has openly discussed a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, he has included strict caveats.

Rubio would grant temporary legal status to those who passed background checks, underwent fingerprinting, demonstrated English skills, and could prove having an extended residence in the country. These newly legalized immigrants could apply for permanent residency leading to citizenship but would not receive any expedited consideration. They would have to apply through the same channels as aspiring immigrants outside the nation’s borders.

Rubio’s purported plan received an important endorsement from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) last week.

President Obama is also preparing to launch a major push for comprehensive immigration reform with a speech in Las Vegas next week, where he is expected to outline his proposals.

The obvious problem that this presents is that it rewards people for being criminals. It doesn't impose penalties and punishments for breaking the law in America, so why should we expect such people to follow any of the other laws in our land if they won't follow one of the most basic for those coming to America? Keep that in mind in case Marco Rubio's name comes up for nomination in 2016 and keep it in mind when others such as Lindsey Graham come up for re-election in 2014. We already know that Democrats need to go.

    Pick them up at the polls when they vote for Obama again! LOL

  • Scott

    The toughest problem on this issue is multiple issues it covers.

    1. Most importantly. We have to secure our borders against the movement of illegal people and items from outside our country
    . 2. We need to have a process for dealing with those illegals already here. While I have no objection with deportations of criminals or those engaged in crimes, we should offer a chance for legal status for those loving here illegally who have worked and lived peacefully within our laws otherwise.
    3. We need to modernize our immigration laws for legal immigration to invite and encourage those talented foreigners who want to join our great country to come here or stay here and make contributions to our economy. America is the greatest country in the world and we need to make our country open to those who want to legally come here and add to our greatness.
    To do all this we need both parties. A bi-partisan approach should be cheered because it means hopefully all of these issues will be addressed.

    • faithandhonor

      The illegals here could volunteer for guest worker program, but would have to go back to their countries of origin once per year... No permanent residency and NO CITIZENSHIP. The ones that can' quallify for the GW program would have to go home, with their children.

      And any new legal immigrants would have to prove financial sufficiency, and coulld have NO public services fror 10 years.

    • Scott

    Make English the official language of the USA and it would clear up a lot of useless pandering.

    All the people in Washington needs to go.The way things are going the Americans will have to start leaving.These leeches in Washington are slowly changing America, for what?A few votes,I have nothing aganist foreign people, but we do have laws and they must be followed, but politicans don't look down the road futher than the next election.. But don't these dumb politicans understand when so many foreigners come in they will not be elected any more..Most foreigners leave their countries because of corrupt goverments,so with them coming here it creates the same kind of goverment they just left.We have not reached the critical stage yet, but we are moving real fast...Are all the politicans dumb or are they corrupt?Either way the people looses...............For a few dollars or votes in a politicans pocket......

  • ken.

    enforce the workplace laws already on the books take away all the jobs, enforce the laws of not giving them government assistance and benefits and illegals will leave on their own.

  • popham

    No matter what the outcome of these 'bi-partisan' talks, we must never, ever forget
    that under U.S. Laws, illegal immigration is illegal. The mere idea of granting amnesty
    of any degree to people, who have crossed our borders illegally is totally absurd and
    warrants charges of treason against those in the Senate or Congress, who would even
    contemplate such a manifest denial of the law.
    Illegal immigrants are draining local, state and federal coffers by being given all the
    free 'entitlements' normally reserved for citizens of America. This is unsustainable.
    Yes, secure our borders, but also, as President Eisenhower did in 1954, deport those
    illegals, who do not belong here.
    Let the 21st Century American Revolution begin, so that we can re-instate this
    once great nation to the republic for which it stands, one nation abiding by
    Constitutional Law.
    We need a new Senate, Congress and president..................soon.
    Good luck, America.

    There wasn't any provision in this report about the limit being the so called 11 million ILLEGAL INVADERS as they claim. The numbers of illegals getting in according to the Border Patrol adjusted by the numbers being deported equal far more than 11 million. Something like an excess of 20 million. Among them are the numbers who have been previously deported who have returned (a felony) so what about them being ineligible for this "reward"?
    Then there is the promise from Congress that the amnesty of 1986 being the last amnesty: We cannot trust government to be true to any promise they make! If there is a political gain to be had, they will shaft the AMERICAN people in a heartbeat!

  • LawfulAmerican

    My mother came to this country from the UK and became an American citizen through the legal process over many years. This pass given to all those who walked across the border and broke all our laws only to be rewarded with citizenship is a disgusting norm that our elected leaders seem to do on a regular basis. I can't do much as one person but I hope that others will remember who is responsible for making this happen when the next election occurs.

  • mogul264

    In EVERY case where the US granted amnesty to illegals in the past (and there HAVE been several !), there was a rush immediately before the fact, and a grand swelling of ever MORE crowding across the border, afterwards, for their 'TURN' at the process. Look it up! Where the illegal population in older times was in the thousands, today it is in the MILLIONS!

    Plus, now many land areas (ESPECIALLY the SouthWest, where the illegals typically cross), are at, or PAST the water needs per person for living! And so they go much further afield, drawing on taxpayers in other states for sustenance, medical needs, schooling, and shelter, all the while sending cash back to their homelands!

    It is sad that Mexico and Central and South American countries have such low standards of living, but it it OUR fault? Many of these countries actually DEPEND HEAVILY for a part of their income per capita of those countries, STILL, is that OUR FAULT, as well??!! They must think so, as they PUBLISH instructions as to HOW to cross our border and then SCAM our government for supporting funds!

    What IS our fault is that we LET them do it, or actually, letting OUR Federal Government NOT do what their job is, and EVICT the law-breakers! And the government is aided and abetted by the law-breaking employers who USE this cheap labor to defray expenses!

    The problem is so pervasive, I don't know where to start!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ed-Scott/100002103340101 Ed Scott

    Comprehensive approach means amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens, and no enforcement of existing laws or shutting down of the borders to future illegal aliens.

    • Scott

      How exactly would you "shut down the borders". There are people on both sides of the border who make a very large living on smuggling people and illegal items into our country. The "coyotes" are professional smugglers who make piles of cash moving these people and items. How can this be stopped when the very people charged with stopping it are compromised by the money involved?

    • TheBigGeezer

      it's called the boarder fence. Make it taller. Make it wider. Then enforce our sovereign lines with armed military. This would stop almost 100% of the INVADERS from coming. A few shootings would stop the rest. We are being invaded... it must stop.

  • aurora9

    I don't think that there is any difference now between the GOP and the demos. One wears the white hat and the other the black hat. It's just one big show to appease the opposition. They're all in bed together and are working towards globalization and communism. They will all sell their country down the drain for their 40 shekels of silver!

  • Spenserr

    and be certain that the so called 11 million illegals are a fabricated
    number created by 'la raza' the single most racist group in America
    today. The real number is closer to 21 million to 23 million... all who
    will become democrats. Just ask a border patrol employee who is
    willing to tell the truth and not play politics. Don't believe these
    numbers... look at the public records of how many illegals are being
    apprehended and the nearly 90% that is not caught! Another example of
    progressive ideology that is based on lies and destroying our once great
    country.

    NO MORE DAMNED AMNESTY!!!!!!

    • Scott

      What kind of punishment can we create for those living here already? We claim we cannot find them and they are settled into mostly productive lives in the US. How can we deal with the problem if we don't offer an incentive to come out of hiding voluntarily.

    • teddie77

      They came out of hiding & gov knows where they're at as of Obama's executive order that gave them a 2 yr. work permit ...they all signed up for it.
      Saying they don't knw where illegals are is like saying they don't knw who's doing the shootings in Chicago or who's doing/selling illegal drugs....they know

    • popham

      The answer is to begin forced deportation of thousands of illegals.
      That will be followed by many illegals, currently 'in hiding', to voluntarily
      return to their respective homelands. However, this administraion and
      Capitol Hill are highly unlikely to ever implement such a policy.

    • Scott

      So we want the federal government going house to house forcibly deporting people? That doesn't sound like a good precedent to set. And how much would that cost???

    • Jude O'Connor

      If they are working and paying taxes they aren't a problem.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004246691037 Paul Thomas

      No fools like you are the problem. What part of illegal do you not understand?

    • Scott

      Umm Paul. If they are working and paying taxes they probably aren't illegals. Just saying.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004246691037 Paul Thomas

      Hmm just saying:} we are speaking of the illegals

    • TheBigGeezer

      they aren't paying taxes... it's all cash for them. I see it everyday when I buy our supplies with checks and credit cards the ones who don't and won't speak english they pull out a wad of 100's and pay cash.

    • TheBigGeezer

      the problem jude is most them aren't.

    • lokiswife

      I saw in the news that 3/4 of illegal aliens here were on welfare. Check the welfare application papers, if no information on their citizenship, stop the checks until they can prove they are legal citizens. Do the same with Social Security, Medicare, etc. Check the police records in the inner cities where the gangs are taking over. I bet the police would love to clean house of gang members and petty criminals. They certainly don't need amnesty, they need deportation ASAP.

    • teddie77

      NJ Dem Robert menendez is the 1 who has a pediphile illegal working in his office for yrs

  • retiredmillwright

    What part of illegal don't the politicians understand? We need to close our borders to illegal aliens. There are many millions more headed this way, it not immigration its a INVASION by a army of illegals. When we can't even stop the flow of illegal drugs what would possibly make people think that the estimated seventy million more illegals in the next twenty or thirty years won't walk across the border. They will arrive from many countries and demand their benefits, there is little stopping them as long as we have tax money to spend on them and people dumb enough to call them undocumented immigrants.

    • Scott

      We need to defend our borders from illegals but we also have to modernize our immigration rules to get the best of high quality foreigners who want to come here legally. Because these people help to create the jobs of the future.

    • Raymond
    • Raymond

      "Because these people help to create the jobs of the future."

      That's pure RUBBISH...........

    • Scott

      No it's not. The immigrants who come into our colleges seeking to improve themselves need to be given incentives to stay and make their productive businesses here. There are tens of thousands of jobs created by jobs started by legal immigrants everyday.

      Would we prefer instead that they get ther educations here and then leave the country to start businesses and create jobs?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ed-Scott/100002103340101 Ed Scott

      Hmmm! Yes!

    • Scott

      So educate them here and then have them take their genius and talent home to India, china, Russia or elsewhere and make their economies stronger. That's brilliant man.

      We need to stop extending student loans and scholarships for their educations.

    • Scott

      Scholarships come from private sources or the universities themselves. They are based one merit and the university thinking that they can get some value from the student's presence.
      If they can bring value to our campuses and ideas to enhance our country then why shouldn't we welcome them?

      Well I guess everyone loves Rev Raymond. How about commenting on the issue and skipping the scripture. Unless the Book of Psalms has a section on illegal immigration?

    • Raymond

      Proverbs 10
      7The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

    • Scott

      So which are you Raymond? There's more to being a Christian than quoting scripture.

    • TheBigGeezer

      the vast majority of illegals that 'la raza' represent are uneducated with no intention of becoming loyal to America. They only want to take and trash our great country. The educated immigrants are not the ones who are currently here illegally. We don't need those individuals who disrespect all aspects of American culture... demand we speak their language. Have illegal children (know that the 14th amendments does not afford citizenship to anchor babies whose parents are illegals) and receive welfare, food stamps and subsidized housing... without paying any taxes. They operate in a cash only life. We don't need anymore of these illegals. Deport them. Confiscate their belongings. Seal our boarders. And put together a real immigration policy that will benefit our legal citizens.

    • Jude O'Connor

      We need to make English the official language. No more bi lingual road signs, instructions in everything you buy among a lot of other things.

    • Scott

      I think the instructions are based on the fact that the stuff isn't sold just in this country. Global companies sell globally.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ed-Scott/100002103340101 Ed Scott

      In that case the majority of aliens already in the U.S. would need to depart.

    • Scott

      So how would we accomplish that? If you really want to get the illegals to depart then we have to aggressively prosecute the businesses that hire them. That's the only way it will stop.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ann-Wilson-Kingsley/100000397000382 Ann Wilson Kingsley

      The simplest way to stop our illegal immigration problem is to allow Bounty Hunters. Do public service announcements for about 3-6 months in the U.S., Mexico, and South America warning illegal aliens that they need to register and receive a Green Card to work in the U.S. by a specified date. After that date the Bounty Hunters will go to work on the problem. The illegal aliens will leave on their own - Guaranteed. This is the low-cost and low loss of life solution. No more illegals dying in the desert in border crossings or in coyote trucks and vans - usually over 200 per year. This also stops expensive border enforcement. The only solution to any of our government problems is to turn the problem back to the citizens for solution. The citizen solution to a problem that involves policing too many people or too much land area always in the past in our country was Bounty Hunters. Bounty Hunters are the kindest solution and the lowest cost solution, even if they are well paid for "dead or alive" illegals.

      Communist Party USA Cheers Obama's Gun Grab.

      It should come as no surprise that the Communist Party USA is on board with President Obama’s plan to attack Americans’ right to keep and bear arms as a means to “end gun violence.” A cardinal feature of communist regimes, like all dictatorships, is the prohibition of private ownership of arms, creating a monopoly of force in the hands of the State.
