Sessions: ‘A large-scale amnesty is
likely to add trillions of dollars
to the debt over time’

The Daily Caller, by Caroline May

Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions voiced concerns over the bipartisan proposal for immigration reform introduced on Monday by eight senators, saying the plan will substantially increase the already sky-high national debt and criticizing the federal government for inadequately enforcing existing immigration laws. “No one should expect the members of the Senate are just going to rubber stamp what a group who met decided,” Sessions said on the Senate floor. While immigration system needs to be reformed, Sessions said, the country has been through this dance before. The Alabama senator recalled the failed promise of enforcement following immigration reform in 1986

I´m not sure what crowd Sessions is playing to. I have yet to see anyone get their panties in a twist over trillions in debt. Except for us here, of course.

It´s not on any news broadcasts, and no one on Capitol Hill is debating it. The Obama fluffers could care less.

Border control first, and let BHO veto same, and thus prolong Congressional BS over amnesty for the 12 million until the summer when USA schools are vacationing and thousands of school buses are available for SENDING THE ILLEGALS BACK HOME.
"NO AMNESTY WITHOUT BORDER CONTROL".

No matter who says it or how they say it, the US is never going to close it´s borders, not even a little bit and amnesty will shortly become so standard that we will close down any "legal procedure" for arriving because all anybody will have to do is walk in. Soon we´ll be covered up with TB, AIDS, leprosy and a whole batch of bad stuff out of the rivers of Africa and Southeast Asia

Our borders are porous, our visa system is a shambles, we haven´t the will to deport - so the only thing we have that works is .... doing nothing.

No green cards for the 11-20 million. Green cards mean eligibility for SS, Medicare, Medicaid, etc etc. Sessions is exactly right - those green cards would cost the taxpayers $ Trillions.

11-20 million? Try about 35 million today. 5 years ago – yeah you could have said 20 million but the math don’t add up anymore. In 2001 the PEW research Center (left leaning) claimed there were nearly 10 million illegals in the US. According to USCIS own data approximately 3 million people enter the country illegally annually but only approximately 350,000 people are deported each year. So are we to believe that in 12 years the number has gone up by only 2 million? Even I can tell you the math does not work at all. No matter how you slice it the number is significantly higher. So…Does anyone really believe that MILLIONS of Illegals are leaving the US as fast as others are entering and going completely unnoticed by USCIS, the Border Patrol and every port authority in the nation? Come on! This immigration deal the president is a payoff for over 70% of the Hispanic vote. That smirk by the way makes me want to launch the nearest brick through my screen.

Once they get amnesty, who is going to stay in the fields. They will move on and more will come in to take their place and we will be granting another amnesty. That is how it works.

The problem will solve itself in a few years, as the children of these illegals will be citizens. This is a one-generation problem, unfortunately.

Here´s my solution: no amnesty, deport illegals, secure borders. Now how hard was that? Unemployment would immediately decrease and wages rise, particularly among those hardest hit during the Obama recession - youth, especially black youth.

As for Sessions´ comment - as wonderful as Obama is in making us and our progeny pay for his generous spirit, we cannot afford to add millions to our welfare, medicare, social security and various other entitlement roles. The vast majority of these "folks" as Obama would say, don´t and won´t make enough of a financial contribution to carry their own weight, which Americans can´t even do for their fellow citizens.

How do y´all like living in the United Banana Republic of America? If immigration "reform" goes through with Republican support, there will be one less Republican to vote for these sad spineless losers.

What to do about illegals? Stop the gravy train. Enforce labor laws. No more freebies for foreigners here illegally. Overtime, they WILL self-deport. In the meantime, the way to play the issue politically is to address the issue from an economic perspective. Sessions gets credit for bringing up the deficit issue, but there is a more compelling moral argument to be made: why should the US reward those who have broken numerous laws to have priority of the multitudes who have tried to immigrate legally? I´d like to see some GOP heavies get in front of large groups of people who are trying to do it legally and be their champion. Secondly, there is the labor market argument: illegal workers artificially expand the labor force and thereby suppress wages for everyone. Just look at the flat wages over the last 30-40 years we´ve had open borders. This argument will get the attention of poor working class democrats (Reagan Republicans) and these are the people the GOP must reach to regain majority status. Rubio´s notion that illegal immigrants will vote in droves for the GOP because they will be business owners and want low taxes doesn´t pass the laugh test. 70% vote democrat, always --- amnesty or no amnesty.

I´ve read before that by the time Barry is no longer in office, the national debt will become around $21 trillion. If this amnesty goes through, that $21T will get pushed to $30T.

Major victory for illegal
immigrant students in Michigan
Daily Caller, by Robby Soave    Original Article
Posted By: ragu- 7/19/2013 10:52:32 PM     Post Reply
The regents of the University of Michigan (UM) granted a hefty tuition discount to students who are in the country illegally. The vote to establish in-state tuition rates for illegal immigrants took place on Thursday, following months of discussion over the issue. The two Republican members of the Board of Regents voted against the measure. Under the old tuition policy, illegal immigrants living in the state of Michigan were automatically considered out-of-state students. Now all residents of Michigan, regardless of whether they lawfully entered the U.S., will enjoy in-state tuition rates. The difference between in-state

In January, Rush Limbaugh warned that there was “an effort under way to normalize pedophilia,” and was ridiculed by liberals (including CNN’s Soledad O’Brien) for saying so. But now liberals have joined a crusade that, if successful, would effectively legalize sex with 14-year-olds in Florida. The case involves Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt, an 18-year-old in Sebastian, Florida, who was arrested in February after admitting that she had a lesbian affair with a 14-year high-school freshman.

Despite momentum, GOP leadership

WASHINGTON — While momentum has been building inside the House Republican conference for a special congressional committee to investigate last year’s terrorist attacks in Benghazi, the GOP leadership is making it clear they still have no enthusiasm for establishing such a committee. About two-thirds of House Republicans – 153 in total – have signed on to the resolution offered by Rep. Frank Wolf of Virginia to establish “a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya.”“I think there’s a lot of frustration up here among members

IRS union denies ‘smoking gun’

The National Treasury Employees Union is denying claims that the union’s president was in contact with President Obama shortly before Internal Revenue Service employees began targeting conservative groups. In a statement emailed to The Daily Caller, the NTEU explained just what NTEU president Colleen Kelley was doing at the White House on March 31, 2010 — shortly before the IRS Determinations Unit began targeting tea party groups. “On March 31, 2010, NTEU president Colleen M. Kelley attended the White House Forum on Workplace Flexibility at the Old Executive Office Building,” an NTEU spokesperson wrote in an email.

Byron York in the Washington Examiner: "After six months of mulling over November´s election results, many Republicans remain convinced that the party´s only path to future victory is to improve the GOP´s appeal to Hispanic voters.

Obama housing nominee: Most white people

President Obama’s pick to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency once said that a “majority of white voters” would never vote for a black candidate and that they should be excluded from “the democratic process.” The White House announced Wednesday that Obama will nominate Democratic North Carolina Congressman Mel Watt to take over the FHFA, which regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the country’s government sponsored mortgage companies. Watt, the former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, has in the past accused white Americans of racism.

As the debate over gun rights heats up on Capitol Hill, the Supreme Court on Monday denied a petition to hear a challenge to a key provision of New York state´s restrictive gun laws. The high court without comment refused to take up a petition challenging a lower court´s upholding New York state´s requirement that citizens prove "proper cause" to carry a weapon for self-defense outside the home. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled in November in favor of the state."Our review of the history and tradition of firearm regulation does not ´clearly demonstrate´

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
