I know of what the distinguished senator speaks. I live in a small apartment complex that has roughly 200 units. In those units we have approximately 40 families from Burma a country which only recently gained political recognition and normalized relations with the U.S. A great celebration was made of this fact and credit for this recognition was given to Hitlery Clinton.
Of those approximate 40 families all receive food-stamps, housing payments, and medicaid. And they have received those payments from day one. All arrived here with at least two little ones in tow and several of the women were pregnant when they got here with two children on the ground already. One family in particular has four kids two they arrived with and two more since getting here with the new births coming in less than two years. And they are still on the taxpayers dole, reproducing like rabbits because they too realize that the more children they have the more money they get!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS HAS TO STOP AND STOP NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the woman's face in this video... if Sessions was consistently passing gas, that's what it would look like. Wonder what Jeff had for lunch. Great comments though. :)
Fix the borders first. A Fair Tax would be nice because ANYONE who is in this country will pay taxes, whether they're here legally or not. Some of the things Rubio is suggesting makes sense and could be a decent course to take... if the borders are indeed secured first and the laws are enforced properly. Also... go after employers who hire illegals.
But I agree with Scoop... this can't be done in the next 4 years. Obama and the Democrats will undermine any reasonable attempt to fix this problem... and the damned lapdog media will echo their sabotage and propagandize the left's point of view. Bank on it. Plus, Obama wants to add to his legacy... this would be another feather in his pimp hat. The problem is, whatever passes through the bowels of the Democrats and Obama, always stinks and is wrapped up in tons of paper (regulations and subterfuge).
Sadly, I think we're past what I really want, which is to deport ALL the illegals and their families - it's been a problem that's grown way out of proportion for too long, under too many Presidents and it has become very complex. It's just plain impractical now to do the right thing. For now, I think Rubio is trying some decent ideas... and many of his solutions/suggestions have merit.
A republican who foists a fake solution as being serious is a RINO. Background checks for illegals? Who are you going to call? The gangs they were in? Mexican Government?
Please. This is BS. And Rubio put his flag on it.
Its amnesty. Sorry, that's just the truth. They say that the amnesty wont happen without the border being secure. Bull. While they're supposedly securing the border they'll go ahead with the rest of the amnesty plan. Sure that sounds like it'll work.
If Rubio really wanted to do something real he would say when there is a border fence across the ENTIRE southern border then we'll start thinking about the rest of this BS. He could say that before we do anything the number for people who slip through should be less than 5%. Do something palpable. Do something ballzy.
They will sell Rubio out, fake border protection, and make sure every illegal becomes a citizen.They will certainly try, and I deeply appreciate Sessions's warning, especially because all the laws in the world are worthless without enforcement. But, could it be Rubio is being very shrewd? It's too early to tell yet, but as I listen to him speak warily and precisely on the issue, I wonder if he has in mind to leverage the appearance of compassion into a establishing a more secure border without handing out citizenship to any- and everybody.
Amnesty will NOT get the Republicans any more hispanic votes. None. If it didn't work for Reagan, it certainly will not work for us in 2016. Hispanics will sell their votes like any other spcial-interest group, to the highest bidder. All the Democrats have to do is keep promising them more and more "free stuff," in the form of benefits, entitlements, welfare, Obamacare, or government paychecks, and they will always get a comfortable majority of the hispanic vote. Like Rush Limbaugh said after the election, it's hard to beat Santa Claus.
Our unrepresentative representatives in Congress continually prey upon the good nature of we Americans and that needs to stop. Much like the wrangling about gun control (AKA stopping gun violence) has nothing to do with saving the children and or curbing gun violence. Same with fixing our "broken" immigration system has nothing to do with uniting families, improving our economy, and bring these poor folks out of the shadows. It's about control of our system by tyrannical forces - or a power struggle between we the people and the power elite! Say NO to both issues........often!!
As for Sen. Rubio, while he occupied one of the top seats in the Florida Legislature he tabled every piece of legislation regarding any effort to control the our illegal alien issue. Also, when he announced he was running for the US Senate, I contacted him requesting whether he would, as Senator, represent all Floridians or favor Hispanics. Never got an answer......until now! When I think Rubio, I think RINO much like Sen. Martinez.
I don't know if he's doing it because of a racial bias or because of the truth he's an establishment ruling class elite darling dutifully groomed by the Bush family. I regard him like the other RINO Senators pushing amnesty, like McCain and Graham, he's McCain 2.0. Their tactics make me cringe.
Why make any more laws? Enforce the laws we have. Do another "Operation Wetback" like Eisenhower did.
We have enough laws. Republicans should not make any more new laws for the next 4 years.
Personally I don't think our government is going to do anything positive to correct the huge immigration problem we have! The Dims only see the illegals as voters for them, they don't care one whit about the problems the illegals are causing. We're in a dire situation and all the politicians are doing is talking and talking about what we "should" do, but no one is actually doing anything to correct this problem. Endless chatter isn't going to fix ths problem!
It is all a political game. A game they all think has risen to such a complex level yet everything is crumbling around them as they play.
Is Rubio simply posturing his creds amongst "hispanics" to run as Bush3 in 2016?
Is Obama letting the elephants float a bill only to come along with a "serious one when it fails?"
Are they all just posturing for the next election willing to give away even more of our nation to migrants and illegals?
We have imported 12 million people who despise our country and our laws. When given citizenship they will vote for more of the same and bring in more illegals like themselves.
1986 Amnesty was granted to 1.7 million illegals. Noe we want to give Amnesty to 12 million illegals. Roughly that means each illegal-turned-citizen from Reagan's Amestry, resulted in 7 more illegals in our country. Do the math for the next round!
I just do not care any more about these elitists who play their games financed on our debt. They absolute and intentionally are not enforcing our existing laws. None of them will admit this yet IT IS THE PROBLEM. They do not care that is destroying our sovereignty, our security and our economy. All they care about is the next election.
Democrats beg Obama: Please don’t offer your own immigration bill
It's going to go down just like it did under Reagan. All of the 'amnesty' provisions will be immediately put in place, and none of the border security provisions will.
There was 'supposed' to be a fence built along our entire southern border decades ago and I'm not talking about some kind of 'virtual fence', I mean a real one. Try sneaking across Mexico's southern border (or the border of most other countries), and watch what happens to you.
Suggestion to the GOP RINO Senate: Lynchpin it to a certified budget and cuts in debt otherwise, may as well just leave it all up to Comrade President Obamakov and his all knowing executive powers.
Sessions rocks! 'Nuff said.
TRS, yeah Obama wants amnesty and open borders for votes, but will Rube-io or anointed Jeb who won't shut up about his love for open borders be any better on amnesty? Either they're deluded into thinking it gets them votes or something, but it won't.
I'm glad somebody in Congress is doing something in regards to putting the brakes on any kind of pushing or more like "ramming" of amnesty legislation through. The leftists in Congress will try to pass their amnesty crapola if it means bending over for groups like La Raza (a very bigoted, racist group), making shady back-room deals, and trying to force legislation (unread, of course) through in the dead of night while Americans against amnesty for illegal immigrants are sleeping. I wouldn't put it past Zero to once again violate our Constitution and institute more Executive Orders.
Yes Brian...exactly. The original deal was never honored. Would you run such a deal in your personal affairs?
I see you support e-verify. Sadly, that is a joke. It just encourages illegals to buy stolen soc. Sec. numbers and it gets the employers off the hook. They know they are hiring illegals, but hey, they passed e-verify. Wink. Wink.
However, e-verify turned a gush into a drip. Rather than ALL illegals being able to gain employment, e-verify made it so only those that tried to steal an identy, and of those only the ones that did so SUCCESSFULLY, would gain employment. It's better than nothing, but still isn't the "answer".
Actually employers are being held responsible if the illegals have stolen ID or are using a relatives ID, gov't issues the penalities, seizes documents and you have to sue to get your business cleared. They place the burden on the employer saying we should have known.
If it does, the employer is not availed to that information. Here's the other one, new hire reporting for child support. Both of these only partial match on first few characters of last name and first few of first name. Again, employer is only told if SSN matches, not that there are child support orders in any specific state. Again, the employer must withhold but if they don't have the court order, they don't know. Employers only find out if the employee willingly discloses and once the quarterly wage match is done by the gov't agencies.
I tried for years to get this fixed and a national database for federal welfare payments.
I thought E-Verify also linked up to W-2s...Hell, when I run my Credit Check even IT tells all the places I've worked. So sharing a SSN will most likely show up on E-Verify as someone working in 13 states, and they can CLEARLY tell what's REALLY going on.
I'm first in line to go after employers that knowingly hire illegals. My point above is that the illegals are stealing and using others' SSNs and identities yet the employer is punished. e-Verify is so very limited. The latest scam is sharing identities. e-Verify does not tell the employer the candidate/employee has 15 jobs in 13 states. We employers need to know that and we also need to have a mechanism to safely report good faith concerns of this happening. Today, we don't, if we try the EEOC threatens to shut the company down.
Because most employers that hire illegals KNOW they are doing so. The point was to make it VERY BAD to actively seek illegals for employment.
How is it good news that the employer is punished when the illegal commits the crime? How is the employer supposed to know?
Last time, under Reagan, we signed an Amnesty Bill with the requirement that the Border become secured. It never happened...and now, we're planning on doing it AGAIN?!? With the SAME requirements, and with the SAME people?!? WHAT?!?
...and with a foreign dictator in the WH who is hellbent on destroying America and killing off white America.
Remember, he did say right before the election that the future workers of America WILL be blacks and hispanics.... no mention of whitey.
And let's remember, he wants to make it easier for these same illegals to buy guns! Civilian brown shirts to fire upon Americans?????
That's right. He wants legal immigrants to have guns, but NOT US citizens.
Good grief, how can Republicans be so dumb to support this amnesty and RUBE is leading the charge.
Wazza matah wif dat?
Whitey's don't much like bein' slaves now do they? We'll just take away their guns.
