Here's the rub:In this country, the rule of law guarantees equal
treatment to every individual, including more than one million immigrants to
whom we grant permanent residence every year. That is why we oppose any form of
amnesty for those who, by intentionally violating the law, disadvantage those
who have obeyed it. Granting amnesty only rewards and encourages more law
breaking. That statement is from the GOP platform of 2012.Rubio,
McCain, Flake and Graham are working against the delegates of the GOP who
approved the platform.They are out of line here, not the GOP members.
It is essential that immigration reform be done asap. Our country has been
built with the labor and talents of immigrants. Those that deny that are naive
and narrow-viewed. Our military has been strengthened by non-citizen soldiers
and support systems.We owe much to the millions of immigrants here
now awaiting the path to citizenship. They have willingly labored at
agricultural and construction jobs and been highly productive. All Americans
are better off because of their contributions.If the voices of those
against the proposed immigation reform had been around throughout America's
history...Non-land-owning Americans, Blacks, Hispanics and Women would never
have gained full citizenship. Indeed, the minority white male would rule over
the rest with a stern hand.We're beyond that now. Every
generation faces these same debates. We know what to do. We know what is right.
And we must do it.
Everything is about votes and recruitment, Latino support, and what is
politically wise for ME, ME, ME !Gang of Eight?: Because these guys
are no different than L.A. street gangs trying to increase their numbers and
territory.What's best for our country plays a very tiny second
fiddle. Can't even hear it.
This was a big gamble for Marco Rubio.And at this point it is not looking
good for him.
The real problem: Senators and Congressmen are so eager to create a new bill
without ever fixing the previous existing problems.Why don't we look at
1996?It has been seventeen (17) YEARS, not less than 40 percent (say
5 million) of the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS living in the United States have stayed
longer than allowed by their visas.Since 1996, the entry system works
well, but the EXIT SYSTEM is NON FUNCTIONAL.At home, I do not allow
my son doing something else without him without him fixing whatever present mess
he made. It is just as simple as that.WHY SHOULD WE LET CONGRESSMEN
AND OR SENATORS CREATE A NEW BILL WHILE NOBODY HAS ANY CAPACITY OR SMART ENOUGH
TO FIX THE EXISTING PROBLEM?and the world says UNITED STATES is a
GREAT COUNTRY, with abundant of INTELLIGENT PEOPLE.in this
relevance, would you say it is a true statement?or, are you kidding me?
Even though John McCain has a valued past, he is marginalizing that now with
some of his antics. His state or citizens want action but I am not sure their
Governor appreciate what may be happening with this process. There are a lot of
good people that have cross our borders illegally but that entailed breaking our
laws that are and have been on the books. Period. That became a definite
crossing of the United States of America's border when their feet crossed
the line. That was a line of demarcation and those people knew it. They may
have been escaping a despot ruler but they then have to declare that to the
border agents, at that time. They want to blend in. They take jobs that some
in our country won't take or do because those citizens want more money or
get enabled benefits that give them more money, not more pride.When
I see the term Gang, even of 8 Senators, I wonder why they would use that term.
Gang is not something that is positive no matter how you spell or mean it to be.
Are they going to ramrod this bill as the healthcare bill?
If it is lead by a "gang" then you know it is bad, very very bad for
The last few months we have been told that the Hispanic vote lost the
Republicans the election by the media. Now someone points out how it will affect
immigration, and people are scrambling. Highly entertaining flip
flop by the pro-illegal people and the Democrats.
California was a republican strong hold until the last imigration reform took
place. Anything involving mccain I wolud be afraid to support.
the immediate impact? We will have to pay for 11 million more welfare recipients
and violent crime will go up as well. Sorry but facts are facts. Will our new
Mexican citizens suddenly like conservatives? Not a chance unless conservatives
suddenly turn into Santa Clause like their democrat brethren and provide plenty
of free-bees. This is a disaster for America...just look at what the same type
policy has done to poor bankrupt California.
