What did Republicans win
in immigration deal?

Washington Post, by Greg Sargent

It’s has been widely assumed this morning by some immigration advocates (and by yours truly, too) that the new immigration reform plan’s process of citizenship for the country’s 11 million undocumented immigrants is contingent on a commission of Southwestern officials declaring the border secure. Not true. I’ve now got clarification from Senate staff working on the bill, and it turns out that the enforcement commission’s judgments will only be advisory, and are entirely nonbinding. Congress’ actions will not be dictated by what this commission concludes;

Golly gee...we sure did something now.

But of course they didn´t.

Hate politicians. Especially RINOs.

OK, the next 11 million run right over!

Of course the real number is something like 20 million, but who´s counting...

For the rest of you who don´t feel like getting paper, don´t worry, there won´t be any enforcement either.

What a joke. Why bother?

Republicans may, in the end, have won the frustration factor. Where are these new citizens, even the brightest and best, going to get jobs? When they see how the democ rats have used them, they are not going to be happy. Remember, they are, I believe, smarter than your average Obama voter. If they are really here for jobs and opportunity, they will discover it is best to vote republican.

With McCain and Graham steering this legislation it`s bound to drive straight into a ditch.

Are there 2 more inept out of touch senators in office today?

What 11 million ??

When Bush was in office, (how long has it been now 6 or 7 years since we were talking about the illegal immigration issue ?) they were using a figure of 12 million plus.

Now they are trying to say we have fewer illegals than we did 6 years ago ???

I would agree with a n earlier comment above... my estimate is at least 20 million illegals (and that´s not even counting the hezbolah and other muslim terror cells that have come in through our southern border in the last 10 years or so)

Rubio got to Hannity and Drudge. This amnesty deal is getting the blackout treatment.
Who can normal citizens trust these days? Nobody: not John McCain, not Boehner, not Tea Party fraud Rubio, not Hannity, not Drudge. The GOP is a dilapidated shack that needs to be demolished. There is no competing with a voting public that has been raised on free government cheese and brainwashed from Kindergarten to graduate school. No trophy candidates like Rubio or Liz Cheney are every going to change that fact. Besides, Hillary is going to sweep 2016 -- she already has the blessing of Ryan and Rubio. She´s already gearing up for it with her little softball interview with Greta Van Feminist. Time to burn the place down and move on. Game over.

Before the wimpy Republicans agree to any sort of Democrat legalization program actually swinging into action, they had better make sure that all the enforcement components of the deal are already in place and working, especially an enhanced e-verify type system to keep illegal aliens out of US employment, if not, the Democrats and their ethnic and immigrant rights advocates will sabotage those enforcement components administratively, through the courts, and in future Congresses. That what happened after the 1986 amnesty.

The deal should only give longtime illegal aliens a conditional immigration status, that allows them to stay here indefinitely, to work, and to travel to and from the USA. To go any further in "a path to citizenship" the legalized aliens should have to qualify for an immigrant visa to get permanent residence, as all legal immigrants have to do today, and thereafter meet all the requirements for naturalization, as all legal immigrants have to also do today.

The Democrats bottom line will always be a "direct path to citizenship" for just about all illegal aliens allowing the legalized aliens to progress almost automatically to permanent residence and US citizenship with US voting rights, knowing that about 80% of them would become Democrat voters as always has been the case in the past. The Democrats would never be doing that if they ever thought that a plurality of the legalized aliens would have an epifinany and vote for Republicans in the future. You can bet on that. Most illegal aliens are Mexicans and as the former Mexican President has said many times, Mexicans love being Mexicans and do not need or want US citizenship, they just want to work in the USA and be treated with dignity, so why are the Democrats rushing to grant them US citizenship?

Anything put together by a group with McCain, Graham, Rubio and that other guy is likely to be as out of step with rest of the GOP as is possible. And the chance of something from them getting through the House would be slim to none.

I think that very little of the Obama agenda, or the Obama-Schumer agenda will get anywhere. It´s gridlock time.

This is the Republican reaction to the election. They feel they have to ´reach out´ to get voters. They were told this repeatedly by the liberal media this is why they lost the election, remember? Who cares what it costs taxpayers, what it does to the economy, as long as they gain some perceived ´votes´.

Sad thing is, they will likely lose more votes to their actions than gains due to conservatives bailing to Independent, and voting against them.

The GOP is imploding, all by itself. Obama doesn´t need to go for the throat.

Face it folks, we´ve been sold down the river. In 1968, my mother predicted uncontrolled illegal immigration would destroy this country.

I´m so angry over this issue, I have to go away to avoid a lifetime ban. Adios.

Why should Hispanic voters cast votes for the weak kneed Republicans after all the illegal aliens have been granted amnesty? There is no reason, as the Democrats will always out bid the Republicans in creating new rights and increased benefits and services to that population group.

Most illegal aliens are poor generally uneducated people who have low incomes and big families and need social welfare services to survive here. Historically immigrants of that class have become Democrat voters. There is no evidence that such a historical perspective will change, as the liberal Democrats already run and control the ethnic communities where most illegal aliens reside.

If the Republicans go along with a liberal Democrat plan that gives just about automatic US citizenship to all illegal aliens within a few years along with US voting rights, the Republicans will have committed what amounts to long-term political suicide when the Democrats use their many millions of new voters to change the political balance of the country greatly in their favor. Once that happens the Republicans will never again be able to win national elections and it will become clear why the Republicans are called the stupid party.

Contempt, that they´ve earned, and the undying enmity of the citizens of this land. I spit on their shadow.

Folks you might want to start selling everything you have which ties you to this country and start looking for an alternate place to live. I still don´t know where that is, but the USA is going to go down the toilet real fast (ie much faster than it already is) if this passes.

Here is what will happen folks, I will map this out. Cut it out, put it on your fridge, and watch EVERY single part of what I say come true.

1) For the TWENTY million, not suddenly 11, but the TWENTY million illegal aliens, this new deal will give them amnesty.

2) There will be some ´feel good" measures in there, such as paying a fee, back taxes, etc. However, the ACLU and other groups will sue about this, and these "good, hardworking immigrants" will not pay a cent.

3) There will be no crackdown on paying these people under the table, or any serious work on the stealing of others´ identities and phony identifications. So, we will welcome and give citizenship to all these people, many of whom will not pay taxes.

4) We will allow them to bring over family members so that "families are not torn apart". Which will turn 20 million aliens into 40-60 million.

5) For the minority that actually do file a tax return, they can claim all their children and their "poverty status" and pay no taxes, perhaps get additional money sent to them.

6) All these recently arrived family members will get free medicine, school, college grants, paid for by the citizens of this country.

7) If you speak out about this, you will be labeled racist. You may be charged with a hate crime, putting your job and family at risk.

8) Your taxes will go up to accommodate.

9) Some will be happy. The liberals will get more voters, ensuring them a strong voting block. The Republicans will get an endless supply of cheap labor for their big business backers.

10) We are going to lose the Senate in the next election.

11) We will not see a Republican president again.

Thank you #25, I meant the House. And yes, I think it will be lost.

The momentum of illegal aliens converting to legal alien voters, the rise in minorities, the general dumbing down of Americans, and the rise of wimpified men and women voting with their vaginas likely has doomed us.

We survived Johnson and Carter, but with not nearly the amount of issues mentioned above.

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep.

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.

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

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)
