McCain to GOP: Accept
path to citizenship in
immigration-reform bill

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Jeremy Herb

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/27/2013 4:23:53 PM

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said that the Republican Party has to accept a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants as part of an immigration-reform package. McCain said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday that a group of bipartisan senators would be announcing “principles” on immigration reform this week, which he said was similar to a plan unveiled during President George W. Bush’s second term that ultimately failed. McCain said there’s one big reason that his party has to loosen its opposition to

Comments:
They have to accept the path to citizenship?? How about securing the borders and enforcing the laws on the books before anything is done. 0bama and his regime through DHS and DOJ refuse to follow the rule of law and we´re expected to agree with them on everything. It´s outrageous. 0bama will just issue another Executive Order, who needs congress. s/o

The great thing about being a senator is never having to admit you were ever wrong. John was a big supporter of the Arab Spring, intervention in Libya, and Huma/Hillary, yet is never confronted on these or any of his many errors in judgment. Every new day he feels free to come before the microphones and pontificate. Every day is Groundhog Day in the US Senate, and McCain resembles Punxatawney Phil very strongly, come to think of it.

There couldn´t be a worse point man for the GOP to put out there as McCain.

one of the more laughable aspects of this is getting illegals topay fines and back taxes.How do you even figure out how much tax they owe and the government will also make loans to these people to pay the fines. Good luck collecting those loans.

Yep, just accept that we´re no longer a nation of laws, as Zero proves every day of the week by his continued existence in the WH. The GOP gains nothing from caving once again, as the enemedia will give Zero full credit for anything that transpires.

Hey McPain,
Why not just close down the border gates completely and let everyone come in.

Stop playing this idiotic game of visas, passports, green cards, apprehension of illegals, no apprehension, deportation, no deportation, amnesty, no amnesty, etc.

Give them driver licenses, medical care, voting rights, instate tuition, tuition assistance, welfare, unemployment benefits, and free tacos, burritos, tortillas, beans, and rice at any restaurant of their choosing.

#6, it´s called an incentive. An incentive to break the law. Sorry for the kids, but the parents of those kids need to be responsible. Yup, if I had a kid and could come here illegally but my kid could be a full, legal American citizen, I´d probably do it, too. Sweet thoughts, rabbit, but think unintended consequences.

Once we fully accept that those that violated our laws should be forgiven and allowed to what they stole we should next consider forgiving bank robbers and allowing them to keep their loot. Bank robber don´t have enough votes or politicians would be urging their forgiveness.

This is precisely why McCain is invited on the Sunday shows. The CrapMedia knows McCain will turn on his own. This puts all conservative leaning republicans on the spot having to answer why they are `out of step` with the likes of McCain and Lindsey Graham.

It`s as if McCain learned n-o-t-h-i-n-g during the 2008 campaign.

Anyone still think the GOP will hold the House in 2014?

The deal shouldn´t just be for the current illegals here, but we need to increase the LEGAL quota on immigration NOW.

The current illegals will need to apply, fill out the necessary paperwork, pay an application fee ($3000-5000 each), and wait in line like everyone else.
It´s humane and puts the status in a LEGAL process.

But, we need to increase the LEGAL quota and state we´d like say 30-50 million new immigrants over the next 20 years.

Bring them from India, China, Australia, Germany, etc...

It will invigorate the country with LEGAL immigrants looking to achieve the American dream. Looking for homes, creating jobs.

Sorry Juan, even though the Senate and the WH are both potentially pro-amnesty, this time, unlike in 2007, the House is in firm control of the GOP. Not much is going to get through there.

Even the Senate is unlikely as only the most pro-amnesty GOP Senators will vote for a ´path-to-citizenship´. When Bush was in control, he managed to get some waffling GOP Senators to support him purely out of ´´party loyalty´´ or some such. This time those guys are voting NO!

Not only no, but Heck NO!!
Apprehended car thieves don´t get to keep the car if they´re driving their kids to school in it. There are a lot of sad stories, some quite touching, that are used to seek justification for lawbreakers.
So?
Nor am I terribly convinced by the calls for increased legal immigration, either. There was a time before the town was known as "Dearbornistan". Remember? There was a time before hordes of Somalia heathens stunk up western Tennessee with their gutter religion. Remember? All the fruits of LEGAL immigration. To the damage of the nation and the culture. We can absorb only so many, and they must be those who wish to become unhyphenated Americans. McPain has forgotten.

Allowing a criminal alien invader a "path to citizenship" that does not include a) filing in his "home" country and especially b) waiting in line behind every legal immigrant who has filed in his home country is exactly the same as allowing a bank robber to be exempt from all punishment if he can only avoid capture for a set number of years.

Even a fool would know that if 12-20 million illegal aliens are legalized and put on a "path to citizenship" that eventually about 80% of the former legalized aliens who would register to vote would become Democrat voters, that´s the way it has always been. By voting for that, the wimpy Republicans would be committed long-term political suicide by destabilizing the political balance that now exists in this country to the favor of the Democrats big time.

When you listen to McCain´s comments on this issue you can see why the Republicans are known as the stupid party.

There is no need to rush to grant US citizenship and US voting rights to illegal aliens, the vast majority of who would be perfectly happy to accept a conditional immigration status that allowed them to reside here indefinitely, to work, and to travel to and from the USA as long as they complied with the immigration laws. As the Presidente de Mexico has said, Mexicans like being Mexicans, and most do not need or want US citizenship.

Marco Rubio Shakes Up Staff And
Stirs 2016 Presidential Rumors
Fox News Latino, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/14/2014 9:24:33 PM     Post Reply
Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

Survey shows ObamaCare sending

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

Hume said the reaction to his comments about Holder and President Barack Obama “benefitting enormously” because of their race was equal parts positive and negative, with about half of people on Twitter calling him “racist” because there were no African-Americans present for the debate on Fox News Sunday. “In other words, in order to discuss this, you have to have an African-American present,” Hume added. “But if you’re just white,

4 We told you a few weeks back that the Obama Administration was prepared to take an astonishing step of surrender, even for this crew, in giving up control of the Internet’s domain name system. That would threaten the Internet’s independence as it would create an opportunity for regimes far less friendly to freedom to step in and gain power and influence. Well, this idea was so horrendous that even Bill Clinton, in addition to 35 Republican senators, spoke up and told the administration not to do it, as well as a great many other voices. Guess what.

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service is prepared to rewrite a proposed rule regulating the political activities of non-profit groups to address complaints from the right and left that it goes too far, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Monday. "In all likelihood we will re-propose a redefined rule and ask for more public comment," Koskinen told USA TODAY´s Capital Download. It´s a process he predicts will take "until the end of the year and beyond" to complete. The proposed regulation of groups known as 501(c)(4)s drew a record 150,000 comments before the deadline in late February. He said the new rule would

Google has acquired drone maker Titan Aerospace, the Wall Street Journal reports. Titan is a New Mexico-based company that makes high-flying solar powered drones. There´s no word on the price Google paid, but Facebook had been in talks to acquire the company earlier this year for a reported $60 million. Presumably, Google paid more than that to keep it away from Facebook. It sounds like Titan will work on a variety of projects for Google. Titan will be able to collect photos from around the planet from high up, which could help with Google Earth and Google Maps. It will also contribute to Google's Project Loon,

Glaring limits of the Civil Rights

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)

4 killed, at least 36 wounded in weekend shootings During a 36-hour period over the weekend of April 11, 35 people were shot in Chicago, causing four fatalities in a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Chicago Police responded to 26 separate shooting incidents over the weekend, but over half the shootings occurred in only a 12-hour period on Saturday. Several of the incidents featured multiple shootings with multiple victims. Many were gang related. Chicago´s murder rate had been down over last year´s rates and some have errantly pegged the drop in murder rates to the fact that

Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out last week on his treatment by Congress, with the implication that it may have to do with his race. However, Holder cleared up to The Huffington Post that his comments were not about race, they were meant to reflect the current level of partisan “incivility” in Washington. The media buzzed for days about whether Holder played the race card, but the attorney general explained HuffPost last Friday, “I didn’t say there was a racial component. I was very careful not to say that.” When he was talking about his unfair treatment to Al Sharpton‘s National Action

MSNBC host Ed Schultz and Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson attacked the panel for lacking diversity and said that some of its members, and Fox News analyst Brit Hume specifically, were guilty of “race-baiting.” “So, the color of your skin will determine if you get disrespect or not?” Schultz asked.

Obama also praised the Pope’s simplicity and spirituality. “I suspect, my sense is, is that he’s a little bit uncomfortable with all the trappings of being Pope,” he said. “That’s not his style, and that is part of why I think he has been so embraced around

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

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)

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
