Hispanic amnesty activists are expanding their goals beyond the so-called “DREAM Act” youth amnesty, towards a national amnesty for roughly 11 million Hispanic illegals. President Barack Obama and Congress “need to come together to deliver change on immigration policy, and by that we mean … a roadmap to citizenship for our parents and communities,” said Cristina Jimenez, direct of an advocacy group, United We Dream. Jimenez was born in Ecuador and arrived in this country as an illegal immigrant. “Deporting members of our community is irresponsible and unacceptable,” added Lorella Praeli, the group’s policy director.
Comments: I just cannot believe Sean Hannity has now joined the group supporting amnesty. I don't how we are going to survive economically with the burden these people have placed on the system. It is so depressing.
What is really depressing are the millions who voted to continue the downward sprial of the USA by every measure know to man. They voted for Santa and he will keep the printing presses going until the dollar becomes more worthless than it already is.
Years ago, Peru made a very bad decision in electing their president. Everything went to hell. A year ago, they elected another president, who is offering Peruvian people to return home in exchange for credits to purchase a home and get a job. Anything is possible.
Site pest alert. Poster #1, this site is not about dividing the nation and fixing blame to any group. Our frustration is that the liberals are using those tactics with the intention of destroying our Constitution that ensures an equal opportunity to all of our citizens. In addition we believe we all as individuals have a personal obligation those in need of help. Nowhere in our Constitution is there a suggestion that squatters from other countries be given citizenship.

No #6, they are demanding payback from the big O for their voter turnout this time around. But, much like the Unions in 2008, they will quickly find that the Dems will never give them what they want for one simple reason. If they grant them their demands now, how will the next Dem candidate get their vote? Suckers, lol...
2. Wanna see my demands? Mine are those of an American citizen. Who follows the law.
3. Is there a link to the Mexican gov't's Amnesty page?
#1: Gee, "nigros" seems to be a popular misspelling soiling this salon a lot lately. How about that? Or maybe -- say, is that a really, really, really clever, sly, smart way of getting around a posting-language filter? I guess one has to have a real nose-bleed-level IQ to think up stuff like "nigros." If so, what's the latest on preons as the possible components of quarks? I've been wanting to dig into that bit of physics territory. What can you tell me?
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!
Granted the majority of Illegal aliens are from Mexico, but also hale from multiple countries around the world. Lock them all up--enough FEMA camps are out there--let them grow their own food, raise cotton, spin and weave their own clothing. Cut off all government aid. VISAs need to be checked to see who overstayed their Visa. Has anyone checked Andrew Sullivan's Visa or Piers Morgan. Heard Sullivan was not eligible to citizenship due to HIV positive status. How about starting with expired Visa stamps and get them out of the country.
NØbama has promised them citizenship, not just amnesty. That will give the Demon-RATS 11,000,000 new voters, which will turn even solidly red states (like Texas) into blue states over night.
The socialist lie-beral Demon-RATS now own this country.
All of the voters who sat home, or voted for a 3rd party candidate, because they couldn't vote for Romney because he just wasn't ''perfect'' (a Mormon, not conservative enough, etc, etc) did every bit as much to kill our republic on 11-6-2012 as the welfare slaves on the welfare plantation did by voting for NØbama.
I just hope that NØbamacare provides free Vaseline for all the times the government is going to tell us to bend over and just take it over the next four years. Our chance to stop that was on November 6th, and we blew it.
Idiot people cannot understand 2 immutable laws of nature: 1. You cannot have both open borders/amnesty AND an entitlement state. The life boat only holds so many passengers. You cannot allow the entire 3rd world to come to the US for free mediacl care, free education, free housing, food stamps, social security. 2. Amnesty only gurantees a tidal wave of more illegal immigrants. Reagan tried it. It doesn't work
Two can play this game, Republicans. A day or two ago I heard Mark Levin say that what the GOP needs to do is to open every embassy worldwide and offer every Eastern European, Russian, Venezuelan, Cuban, Chinese, etc instant American citizenship....if they register and vote GOP...
The left ran ads on all Hispanic radio and television for weeks up to election day threatening that if Romney was elected he would put their parents in a box and ship them back to Mexico. The R's did nothing to counter.
If these kind of demands work then we can expect the prison populations to make the same demands...why not. and if the illigals all say they come here for a 'better' life then why do they try to convert OUR country into what they claim to run away from??? In 50 years they will have overun our country, trashed it beyond recognition and start heading back to theirs. What makes me chuckle is that the hispanics will shortly become the dominating minority and ease the blacks out...the same ones that brought them here to redo our country with millions of 'voters'...think they will continue to get free cell phones then???
If the Republicans hand the liberal Democrats 11 million prospective new voters they will never win a national election again, the Republicans would affectively be committing long-term political suicide. Do you think that the highly partisan liberal Democrats and their Hispanic group political allies would be pushing for such voting rights for legalized aliens if there was any chance that more then a few would have an epiphany and vote for conservative Republicans.
Only the House of Reps can block Obama´s approval of 11,000,000 more permanent Democrats. I don´t think they have the spine for the fight, though. Hispanics, other than a few Cubans, will never vote Republican, so do not give the vote to millions of Democrats, or it will be the end of the Republican Party.
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
