Bipartisan immigration plan
faces deep skepticism

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/29/2013 7:26:30 AM

"On day one of our bill, the people without status who are not criminals or security risks will be able to live and work here legally."With those words, Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer, who moments earlier had heaped effusive praise on Republican colleagues standing with him in the Senate press room, made it infinitely more difficult for many GOP lawmakers to sign on to the bipartisan immigration proposal put forward by the so-called Gang of Eight

The borders will be now "under funded" to cripple efforts to stem the tide. Just like the budget agreement, taxes first, forget the rest. Visas should come with ankle bracelets.

Would someone, anyone ask one (1) simple question, please? Ask the wise solons "WHY". Why do we need more mouths to feed from our larders? Why must we share our scarce resources with them? Do we get ANYTHING of true value in return? We cannot take care of ourselves let alone tens of millions more of needful folks.

Obama will load his plan with poison pills so the GOP will reject it and then he´ll use exe. powers. One of the main stumbling blocks right out of the gate is verifying that the border is sealed. Obama doesn´t want that nor does he want anybody deported regardless if they have been already and are hanging around.

Obama doesn´t want along dragged out process for people to become citizens which I believe the senate plan calls for.

No matter how many laws you pass,obama has to enforce them and he´s more likely than not to ignore them.

What Democrat Sen Charles Schumer actually meant was: "On day one of our bill, the people without status who are not criminals or security risks will be able to live, work and vote here legally." The voting part was missing from his initial statement.

Why do these 8 pompous, TV seeking senators care so much about illegals? There are over 300 million citizens in this country yet the 11 million+ illegals get all the attention. Why?

It´s incredible that the Republicans are willingly walking right into this trap. Once this is approved, the Democrats won´t even have to cheat to win every future election. They will have permanently added 11 million votes to the D column. If you want to see what America will look like then, take a look at California. We have been invaded and overwhelmed in our schools, hospitals, legal system, and way of life. Our taxes are off the charts. Those of us who work have become tax slaves to pay for all the free services the invasion force is now voting for themselves.

Those Republicans who believe that voting for this bill will result in winning the votes of these illegal immigrants are complete fools.

The president ignored the Simpson-Bowles commission when it comes to fiscal reform. Now we get another commission to tell us if the border is really secure?

How about those on the path to citizenship NEVER get a chance to vote? Sorry, but the Dems want the votes, that´s all this is about. Let´s see if they would pass a bill that says even if they become legal, they can´t vote. I´ll bet that wouldn´t fly.

This comprehensive immigration reform package has way too many moving parts. First they must do this, then they must do this, and then they must complete this and finally go to the back of the line all the while learning to speak English. Then we will get around to closing the border in a year or two.

Too, too complicated——like so many things designed, written and passed by modern congresses.

And, last but not least, Chucky-Babes is a liberal, Democrat snake!

Why shouldn´t we be skeptical? This "plan" sounds exactly like all the previous plans, none of which worked except for the additional democrat voters. The big winners will be american businesses who can hire foreign professionals with HB1 visas for far less money than american citizens would demand. It´s another taxpayer ripoff.

GOP is no better than dims. They are members of the ruling class elite. GOP is also stupid because
mexicans, especially the newest waves of them, are an entitlement class. They want free stuff and are a secure democrat voting block. Assimilation is a myth. They are mexicans who operate somewhere between no loyalty to USA and resentment of it. Therefore, amnesty won´t garner even one hispanic Republican voter. An amnesty agreement actually represents a net loss to Republicans because guys like me will reregister in protest as independents or libertarians.

Obama is always talking about the collective...well. It is time to put our collective foot down and say NO to this comprehensive legislation. We are not chumps and we understand exactly what this legislation means. It is amnesty. It is time to make our voices heard. Close the border FIRST and then we will have the conversation you so desperately want to have regarding the illegals that are presently residing here. Your motives are clearly self-serving and you do not have the best interests of this country in mind. You are pushing law abiding citizens to the breaking point with the talk of gun control and now amnesty. The American people by a large majority want the border secured first and not just a promise. The country will not collapse if we close the border first. This comprehensive crisis legislation must stop.

Do you really think it´s only 11 million? Probably at least double that number.

And, Obama has proven he will not follow the law regardless of what the law is - he will rule by fiat and we can all sit at our laptops and complain.

When Obama reveals his own plan today, it will completely undercut the "bipartisan" plan. Democrats don´t want legislation; they´d rather have the issue. Just like minimum wage, where an inflation kicker would eliminate the issue, democrats much prefer a gift that keeps on giving.

My family came to this country in 1719, we have been here a long time, yet I have more in common culturally, morally and my work ethic with the illegals crossing our southern border for work than I do with the urban populations on the East or West coasts or even Chicago. I have been a conservative, Republican most of the time, all my life (65 years) but on this issue I agree with what these Senators have proposed. BUT immigration reform must be tied to border security or it won´t work.

I have an idea on this....

Why don´t we just invite them ALL here.....? Let them come in freely and vote like they want. Keep the Democrats in power forever, and the free stuff flowing.

Eventually they´ll run out of money and maybe figure it out.

In the meantime, the rest of us can expatriate to Mexico and get that place straightened out. They´ll be begging to come back, but we can have a nice constitutional republic set up by then, with strict border enforcement.

First off, its not 11 million, more like 13 million and thats before friends and family. Grand total - maybe 30 million.
Second, what happens if we throw 8 million blue color workers willing to work for minimum wage in the labor force. Think your union will protect you - think again. The union shops will not be able to compete with non-union minimum wage shops. Think you are safe in government service, don´t bet on it. I am sure the new immigrants will be given EEO special status.

Re: reply 17.

Many of the illegals who cross the southern border settle in urban centers on the east and west coasts, plus Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Omaha, and so on. They may have come here for work but they also come to USA to connect to the social services lifeline. They also bring their 3rd world culture which for many of them includes resentment of this country. Here is my anecdotal experience: I work in a high school in metro Denver with 78 percent hispanic student body. I estimate 80 percent of them obtain at least one form of social services. We had a mock election. Romney received 8 percent. I doubt you share much in common with the latest waves of mexican "immigrants."

John McCain´s statement stood out for me in this article. He said, "in 2007 the plan was to enforce the border first with that Immigration proposal as well, but the American people didn´t trust the government to follow through with that promise, no matter how many times he, John McCain, said the government would. The trust was just not there."(paraphrased)
Guess what Senator McCain, if the trust wasn´t there in 2007, it is even less there in 2013. I don´t think the trust level could get any lower than it is today.

Millions of patriotic Americans stopped the baloney in the summer of 2006 when McCain and W were pushing it. We melted switchboards and made the clowns back off. We have been beaten down for six plus years and no longer have the will to fight. The nation´s collapse is coming on ever faster and the GOP is complicit. Is Marco Rubio so stupid that he really thinks conspiring behind closed doors with the likes of McShame and Chuckie Schumer is in this country´s interest?

So the people that broke the law get to stay here legally, while the ones who have gotten on the legal citizenship path don´t get legalized? That makes no sense at all, and expect more illegals! Rewarding any behavior only encourages more of it, including illegal ones. We´ve learned and seen that already with Reagan´s amnesty. The borders aren´t any more secure than they were with Reagan and that´s why we´re in this situation. Lather, rinse, repeat. The politicians are selling the rest of the country out for their 30 pieces of silver. They don´t have to live with the consequences. Our family came from legal immigrants, through Ellis island, as most immigrant families of my generation did. There is a process, there are rules. Those who didn´t play by the rules shouldn´t be rewarded for their behavior. This conflation of the legal and illegal immigrant by the leftists proves the vapidity of their arguments. They have to obfuscate because their argument for legalizing the illegal immigrants can´t stand alone on merit. You wouldn´t reward the thief discovered in your house, inviting them to move in and live with you. Why do the same with those who have come here illegally? That´s nuts.

Lets not forget that there are lots of middle eastern men, posing as Mexicans, who are also flooding across that border. Al Quada, the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah - take your pick.

In November I drove from San Diego to the Grand Canyon and part of the trip took me right along the border. You can see the fences from the interstate. In Arizona, which is supposed to be tough on illegal immigrants, the US Border Control checkpoints along the highway were mostly sporting signs that said CLOSED. Secure the borders? Dream on.

"So people who came illegally yesterday, or next week, won´t qualify. They will have to leave the country."

...like the millions who already don´t qualify and who will never be found in order to be politely asked to leave the country?

How the heck does anyone think that illegals are going to voluntarily show themselves as illegals so they can "go to the back of the line" (right, like so many already did)? It´s already easy to get welfare for an illegal on day one he´s here, so what is the enforcement mechanism by which they will be found and shipped back to their country of origin?

Don´t try blowing that same old smoke up my keister, please.

Every illegal has a nation of origin.

For each illegal who gets a free pass for breaking our laws, their country of origin should see the quota we admit legally drop by one. No more adding legal immigrants on top of illegal ones.

Illegals seeking citizenship should not be given the luxury of dual citizenship, either. One or the other.

Simple question. Why will it be easier and quicker for an ILLEGAL "immigrant" to attain U.S. citizenship than a LEGAL immigrant, who has been in line for years waiting for the opportunity. Simple answer, The Democratic party wants to have a larger base as quickly as possible. Who in their right mind thinks it is more humane to grant an individual who BROKE OUR LAWS U.S. citizenship than to an individual who OBEYED OUR LAWS and is now being discriminated against because of our Government. This is BLATANT Government bias.
Every single person on the current immigration list should be placed in line AHEAD of the people who snuck into this Country. We already have immigration laws, but they are NOT being followed.

There should have been a temporary worker program. They sold out the country for their own selfish interests. Guess what? They´re still doing it.

Do you really believe that Obama and the liberal Democrats would be pushing so hard for a streamlined process for 11 to 20 million illegal aliens to be given US citizenship and US voting rights as soon as possible, if they ever had reason to believe that more then a small percentage of the current illegal alien population they would legalize would ever have an epifinany and vote for conservative Republicans? Right now it appears that only some politicians of the Stupid Party would believe that Hispanics would flock to the Stupid Party after the illegal alien population is granted amnesty and that is not going to happen.

The vast majority of illegal aliens are poor people, who are generally uneducated, earn low wages, and have come here from socialist oriented countries. In order to survive here in high cost of living America, they are going to need access to all the social welfare benefits and programs, including Obama Care, that make up the US social safety network. Those people are going to vote for the liberal Democrats who want to expand those social programs and not the Republican (Stupid) Party that wants to contract those social programs.

Once the legalized alien population is granted US voting rights, the liberal Democrats will set up massive registration drives in immigrant communities to register as many of those people as possible as Democrat voters. With that many new voters, the Democrats will easily be able to flip States like Florida, Arizona and even Texas to where they resemble present day California politically. All that amounts to political suicide for the Stupid Party!

It´s a fact that the overwhelming majority of illegals in this country come from Mexico. I know, not all of them, just the majority. And ask yourself why do they come here? Well, Mexico is a country that has a totaly corrupt government, corrutp military, and corrupt police force. And it´s a pay to play system there. Bribery is rampant all up and down the line. So, there are a lot of Meicans that have heard about all the freebies available in the U.S. and how easy it is to sneak across the border, and ´volia´, here they come. And they bring their solicalist beliefs with them. And some of the even want California and Arizona to be returned to Mexico! Talk about stupid. So we, true Americans, are supposed to pay the tab for these people by pay ever and ever higher taxes. Yeah. That sounds about right./s

I think we should have a Constitutional Amendment that allows only native born Americans the right to vote.

The Republican party thinks this action will "save" the party and that the hispanic vote will turn conservative. Wrong! Most, if not all, Hispanics will still vote for whatever party gives them the most just like the blacks do now. We(conservatives) are done for in this country, especially with the population of white voters decreasing every year until they are the minorities. Time to sit back and watch your country crumble or move to where? I can´t name a country that´s any better.

Look, the Republicans under GW Bush had both houses of congress and the office of the President. yet, they failed miserably to do a single thing about immigration reform- not one that was effective and resolved the problem. They had a chance to strengthen the border and establish a green card system that would verify the person as a foreign entity not eligible to vote in our elections- they did nothing! Now we are faced with a terrible invasion that will get worse as the discussion of amnesty keeps getting tossed about. This is the result of a failed Republican party-

Think of this; if Mexicans were voting conservatively, the Dems would be throwing the U.S. Military at the border with orders to shoot to kill anyone attempting to cross over!

Immigration “reform” is predicated on the idea that there is something wrong with the laws we have. What is wrong is not the laws, it’s the complete lack of enforcement and a porous border. Pat Buchanan has said before that a nation that can’t control its borders is not a sovereign nation, and he’s right. We went to war over Kuwait’s sovereign borders, but won’t defend our own. Tell the gang of 8, fix the border now, then we’ll talk.

Obama is a lawless president so why pass any laws that depend on him? Obama prints money so why have any taxes. These amnesties for border security always give us the amnesty but never the border security. The border security promised several times before must be all achieved - not just promised - before anything else goes ahead. Undocumented immigrants have more privileges than documented citizens. Soon everyone will want to be undocumented! This playing field needs to be levelled as well.

Of course no one trusts Congress on this or any other issue, John. (““What I underestimated was the lack of trust and confidence in government," McCain said in November 2007.”)

If our borders were already secure, this debate wouldn’t sound like a broken record.

Find a single elected official willing stand up and commit political suicide by arguing that our borders shouldn’t be made secure. Border security should be the mother of all bipartisan issues. Instead, it’s being used as a bargaining chip by the same “progressives” who always promise budget cuts later if we raise taxes now, and then never, ever keep their word.

To paraphrase the Gipper, “Verify, then trust.”

They are on social services because they do not get a fair wage because they are illegal! Conservatives want to keep them illegal so they have low wages but then prevent them from accessing basic services. Liberals like them because they can buy their loyalty by providing the services and telling them how bad their employers are, but they must be kept dependent for both groups. Thus the border must stay open for both sides to get what they want, cheap labor and cheap votes. It´s always about the money and power, never really the ´cover´ issue.

This is just a proposal , it´s months
maybe even longer away from
resembling anything like a bill.
The legislative sausage making will take a long time.
Rubio has been very effective in explaining his principles on immigration reform
and they are solid and conservative.
Including border security , first.
When the final bill is crafted , if it´s amnesty , Rubio says he won´t support it.
Rubio says that 40 % of illegals are here on expired visas and have not come over the border.
And they are allowed to remain here on their expired visas because of lack of enforcement.
We already have de facto amnesty now.
At least this tries to control the border and the population.
"Individuals with probationary legal status
will be required to go to the back of the line of prospective immigrants,
pass an additional background check,
pay taxes,
learn English and civics,
demonstrate a history of work in the United States,
and current employment,
among other requirements, in order to earn the opportunity to apply for lawful permanent residency,"
If the those applying for probationary status do not meet all the requirements ,
will they then be deported ?

Racism, racism, discrimination! Why shouldn´t the illegals be health screened?All the white people from Northern Europe and Eastern Europe in the 1920s had to have the health tests that they had available in those days. And the sick ones were sent back. Two voyages for thousands.
Standards. Health screenings. But not for the brown people of the southern hemisphere.
If thewe people are going to jam Obama care we better have a bead on their health. Many could carry parasites from which as ahost they could have only a mild flu-like symptom.

He´s imprinted against it.

Data presented at the National Review Conference in DC this past weekend was that 50% of Hispanic mothers are unwed, with conclusion that most are on the dole, and 70%+ of black womena re unwed mothers and most are on the dole.

The solution to our country´s financial problems is to stop paying/rewarding these unwed mothers to breed indiscriminately at taxpayer expense -- that is called "INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE", or slavery, which was outlawed some time ago.

Build the fence, with exit doors.

It´s the free stuff, Stupid. Read the Manhattan Institute fellow Heather MacDonald´s essay on why the Hispanic vote goes to the Dims. Free Stuff. What´s surprising is the number of Hispanic votes the GOP does get. Take out the Cuban-American voters and the number is probably pretty close to the 90-odd percent that the Black voters give the Dims.

Before anyone legalized:

1) Make illegal immigration a felony with 1-10 years in prison.
2) Amend the constitution so babies born to illegals are not citizens.
3) Illegals can bring in any but immediate family.
4) Sanctuaries or aiding illegals is a felony.
5) Federal law enforcement agency dedicated to pursuit of illegals.
6) Failure to enforce these laws is a felony.

I´m open to this, once the border has been secured. That was the "deal" with Simpson-Mazzoli, upon which the Dems reneged. Fool us once ..

Well, if the the little thing standing in the way is securing the borders first, how is this going to work? They haven´t been able to do it so far.

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A man is facing charges after deputies say he was flying a video camera-equipped drone that hindered the landing of a medical helicopter at an accident scene. Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he´s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route. "I´m not an idiot," he said. The hobbyist was flying the $4,000 drone over a crash scene on Saturday morning to shoot photos and video. Authorities said both fire officials and a Clark County sheriff´s deputy told Stanley to stop flying his remote-controlled

The administration’s “smart diplomacy” does not include providing aid to those who fight internal oppression or outside aggression and whose victory potentially would obviate the need for direct U.S. action. Hence, President Obama gave Iran’s Green Revolution the cold shoulder in June 2009. He denied aid, and then dragged his feet on delivering aid to non-jihadi rebels in Syria. Now, it should come as no surprise, he is unwilling to provide Ukraine with military aid or intelligence to defend itself against Russian aggression.

Census Survey Revisions

WASHINGTON — The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said. The changes are intended to improve the accuracy of the survey, being conducted this month in interviews with tens of thousands of households around the country. But the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable, the officials said. An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire

Obama Isn´t Inspiring People to Run

Very few of the young Americans who carried President Obama to electoral victory in 2008 have chosen to follow him into public service, The New York Times reports on Monday. Which made us wonder who inspired the current Congress to seek office. The answer? Two Republican stalwarts. There are a lot of caveats that should be applied to the Times story, not the least of which is that most candidates for office tend to skew a little older than the 18-year-olds that cast their first votes six years ago. But regardless, Jason Horowitz writes, "[u]nlike John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan,

The ironworker who parachuted from One World Trade Center said his death-defying leap was “amazing,” but it’s not something he would try again. “No, I wouldn’t do it again,” said James Brady, 32, who BASE jumped off the roof of the tallest building in the nation last September, along with two fellow thrill-seekers. “It’s amazing,” he told The Post when asked to describe the now-infamous plunge. “If you could take the realest, happiest moment of your life and relive that, that’s what it’s like.” “It’s just the realest moment you can experience,” said Brady, who faces serious criminal charges for the stunt. He was indicted

SYDNEY—An unmanned vehicle was due to begin searching the Indian Ocean seabed for wreckage from Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -2.33% Flight 370 on Monday, as authorities lost hope of detecting any new signals from the missing jet´s black-box flight recorders. Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is leading the multinational search, said a series of "ping" signals detected last week by a U.S. Navy black box detector remains the most promising lead in the search for the plane, which disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8.

Anti Semitism and the Blind Jew

Several years ago, I happened to tune into a radio broadcast called "Jewish News and Views," conducted by Shifra Hoffman. The callers were berating Ms. Hoffman for spreading what they called the myth of rampant anti-Semitism. One man said he was tired of hearing about the Holocaust, and that "we Jews ought to stop whining about it." I called in and identified myself as a Christian who was very much aware of widespread but hidden anti-Semitism. I gave her examples of the anti-Semitic remarks I had heard from people in all walks of life who assumed I shared their views because

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
