No, Amnesty Is
Not the Answer

Breitbart's Big Government, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 9:41:48 AM

As an immigrant, married to a fellow immigrant, I have to say I am puzzled that some conservatives are urging the Republican Party to embrace amnesty for illegal immigration in the wake of Tuesday's election--even those who otherwise think the GOP should reaffirm its commitment to conservative principles. Doing so would gain few Hispanic votes while sacrificing more of the core supporters Republicans left at home. Yes, Democrats did better among Hispanics. They were the only ethnic group among whom Obama and his party netted more votes in 2012 than they did in 2008

Even Sean Hannity just said those here should be granted amnesty. I dread the next four years even more than the last four.

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. Reagan agreed to an amnesty with the libtards and look what happened. I do wish 'conservatives' would learn from experience and their mistakes - the libtards DO NOT have the Republic's best interests in mind. They DO have the Republic's destruction as a goal. Let's keep that in mind.

Actually, if in turn Mexico would grant amnesty and voting rights to people sneaking into Mexico from the US we might be on to something.
I am beginning to think conservatives' best hope is to all immigrate to a fixer up country and get to work.

Sometimes the Stupid Party makes very simple things very complicated. Amnesty = permanently blue AZ, NM, CO, and FL = game over. All the anecdotal shinola about Latinos being for families and hard work is easily debunked if you look at the people governing Latin American countries. See any Reagans down there? Only a complete idiot would think that Latinos will reward the GOP for amnesty. They want Santa Claus. Not merely amnesty. If you want to cave on something make it taxes. Let Dear Leader own his economy.

As a licensed master plumber I can assure you that it is best to locate and stop the leak before worrying about the mopping up process.

I, too, am an immigrant who waited patiently for seven years of testing and being interviewed and processed and poked and prodded for the privilege of becoming an American.

Don't listen to those who say we can't drill for oil or use coal or nuclear or anything that actually works.

They are children and not very nice children at that.

NO to amnesty. Double down on deportation.
Latinos are the LARGEST consumer of gov't services in the USA.
They vote democrat for the free stuff. Sadly, the hard working ones are outnumbered by the gimmee ones.
Churches and other human rights groups should be encouraging people from Ukraine, Estonia and Poland etc. to come to America. Just because one group can walk over the border (and our flag) doesn't mean that they get to suck up all the resources of this country. Open Immigration WIDE and Far for other countries. In Obama speak, for people who look like us. Let them have families and grow here too.

I have the solution. Announce an amnesty to all illegals living in California. But first build a wall around California. Allow all illegals to enter California but not leave California and then expel California from the USA.

Simple isn't it. We fix the illegal issue and get6 rid of the idiots in California. After all, only idiots would vote to raise their taxes.

How many times of Lucianne do we see comments that the democrats can give lip service to the blacks and hispanics yet not do anything that will enhance their quality of life significantly? Yet, they retain the black and hispanic vote.

I am starting to see that this is how conservatives are viewed by the republicans. Ignore us, and we still come around to jump on the "team" bandwagon.

No one gets amnesty, but we can legally increase the immigration quota.

We can then have anyone looking to become a U.S. citizen to sign up, pay a non-refundable application fee (I recommend $3000-5000 which is about what the coyotes charge to smuggle someone here), and process them in a humane, legal manner.

The process will take years to complete, and they'll all need to remain good citizens during the process.

This increase in the quota would apply ANYONE looking to become a U.S. citizen, so open to India, China, Russia, Vietnam, etc... not just the current illegals.

They would bring a new enthusiasm and desire to achieve the American Dream.

If you don't demonize the Mexicans by demanding deportation you take the sting away from the Dem attack of "mean-spirited" Republicans who hate you.

And, with this increased quota would be a legislative change to the 14th amendment.

Once they're signed-up, we'll know who's who, and where people are. And the extent of the issue.

You can be sure that it is 11 million now, and unlimited millions later! There is no end to this as most Hispanic activist groups have no allegiance to the USA and only want to inundate this country with more Hispanics to change the demographics forever in their favor. The problem is that these people have no intention whatsoever in becoming Americans; on the contrary, they want America to become Mexico! Implement amnesty at your own peril America!

Obama budget would hike duck

Hunters beware: President Obama´s budget released Tuesday would hike duck stamp fees by $140 million over the next decade. Federal duck stamps are issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and required for anyone older than 16 who wants to hunt migratory waterfowl. A new $15 stamp must be purchased each year. Among the myriad of increases in taxes and fees in Obama´s fiscal 2015 budget request, the proposal seeks to raise an additional $14 million a year from hunters. The White House Office of Management and Budget projected that this would raise $140 million from 2015 to 2024. The additional federal

Senior Defense officials will unveil the budget at the Pentagon at 1:30 p.m., followed by comments from the service branches.

President Obama strongly denounced the Senate on Wednesday for failing to confirm a top nominee to the Justice Department. In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Debo Adegbile´s defeat is a "travesty" and is based on unfair attacks. "The Senate’s failure to confirm Debo Adegbile to lead the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is a travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant," Obama said. "Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable." Obama said the main attack used against Adegbile -- Republicans denounced his work on behalf of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal

The moral righteousness of resistance to Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-WI) and his House Un-American Activities Committee remains vibrant in the imaginations of modern progressives. McCarthy’s myopic campaign to expose communists in high-profile areas of American life was opposed by liberal dissenters who viewed his investigation as an infringement on their rights of free association, speech, and even thought. The modern progressive movement admires their predecessors’ stand against McCarthy so deeply that references to that inauspicious period of American history are regularly deployed in liberal publications and media outlets. Those noble principles apparently go right out the window when Democrats face what increasingly

The White House on Wednesday criticized Iran for an illicit shipment of weapons headed to Gaza, calling it “unacceptable,” but insisted it would press ahead with nuclear talks. “These illicit actions are unacceptable to the international community,” White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters. Carney, though, said the administration would continue negotiations over Tehran´s nuclear program, but also standing up to Iran. "We continue to have enormous issues with Iran, its sponsor of terrorist organizations, its bad behavior in the region that manifests itself in many ways.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been nominated for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize – but the conflict in Ukraine is also likely to be on the Nobel committee’s agenda. A record 278 candidates, including 47 organizations, received nominations for the 2014 prize, said the Norwegian Nobel Institute’s director, Geir Lundestad. Committee members who met on Tuesday added their own proposals with a focus on recent turmoil around the globe. “Part of the purpose of the committee’s first meeting is to take into account recent events, and committee members try to anticipate what could be the potential developments in political hotspots,”

The Senate voted 47-52 Wednesday to reject controversial nominee Debo Adegbile as an assistant attorney general. Seven Democrats voted against moving forward with President Obama’s nomination of Adegbile, which the Fraternal Order of Police and other groups opposed because of his involvement in the defense of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer in 1981. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) then switched his vote from yes to no in a move that allows him to bring the nomination up again for a future vote. Every Republican also voted against the nomination, sending

A House chairman probing the IRS scandal on Wednesday said that President Obama has reneged on a promise to have his aides cooperate with the investigation, forcing the Ways and Means Committee to conduct a dragnet for emails and documents needed to smoke out the truth. Rep. Dave Camp also revealed that federal agents conducting an investigation into the Internal Revenue Service´s bid to punish Tea Party and conservative critics of the president have yet to talk to a single target of the scandal.

Austin Rick Perry is in a good mood, and it’s not just because it’s his 64th birthday. Tuesday is primary day in Texas, and for the first time in what seems like forever, his name’s not on the ballot. The office he’s made his own—with paintings of the Texas landscapes and framed photos of recent war heroes from Texas—for the last 13 years will belong to someone else next January. But Perry doesn’t sound wistful in the twilight of his term. “Knowing when to leave is a real gift,” he says. First elected lieutenant governor in 1998, Perry became governor on

SONORA — Three third-grade students at a Sonora elementary school were busted for smoking pot in the school’s bathroom last week. Two 8-year-olds and a 9-year-old were caught by another student, who immediately informed school administrators. Those officials then alerted local police. The students were questioned by officers, and later released to their parents on February 27th. Sonora Elementary School Principal Chris Boyles would not speak with the station regarding the case, but Superintendent Leigh Shampain confirmed that the students were caught smoking marijuana in the school’s bathroom. He would not discuss how the students might be disciplined..

President Barack Obama says he’s hoping to “deescalate” the Crimean crisis, which would help him focus on his top priority — escalating U.S. political fights so his base turns out to vote in November. By advancing into the Crimean region of the Ukraine, “the Russians are engaging in a fundamental breach of international law,” Obama told donors Tuesday night. ”We may be able to deescalate over the next several days and weeks, but it’s a serious situation and we’re spending a lot of time on it,” he said at a fundraiser in McLean, Va.

Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness.

Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B.

Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.
