Up to 11 million illegal residents
to be granted U.S. citizenship
under new deal hammered out by
bipartisan Senate group

Daily Mail [UK], by Michael Zennie

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/28/2013 1:42:01 PM

A gang of eight Republican and Democratic senators has hammered out an immigration reform deal that could allow 11million illegal immigrants to gain legal status and, eventually, American citizenship. The agreement includes strict enforcement measures like stepped up border security and visa exit tracking that must go into effect before any illegal residents are given official status. The plan is endorsed by conservative newcomers Marco Rubio, of Florida, and Jeff Flake, of Arizona, as well as liberal veterans Charles Schumer, of New York, and Dick Durbin, of Illinois. The senators hope that the broad range of political

Comments:
It won´t take effect until border security is "tigtened" and it will allow more low skill workers into the country???? Just what we need. s/o This will never make it through the House and then the Republicans will be called racists. What goes on in Washington these days is an unmitigated disaster, doesn´t solve anything and creates more problems. Nothing is mentioned about chain migration.

As a legal resident, but not a citizen (yet), I´m immensely unhappy with this mockery of the law.
Any politician who voted in favor of this would not get my support. Ever.

This country does not belong to eight Senators, nor do they have any right -- or authority -- to give it away.

FTA: The agreement includes strict enforcement measures like stepped up border security and visa exit tracking that must go into effect before any illegal residents are given official status.

Riiiiiight.

There won´t be any control of the border line, and every body knows it. Plus, the 11 million number is very low end. It´s more like 25-30 million. American citizens have been sold out by the elitist hypocrite members of the ruling class.

My grandparents (both sides) came through Ellis Island 100 years ago.
They worked hard to assimilate into the American culture.
The illegal Mexicans here now refuse to assimilate, flout not only the immigration law, but others..DUI, rape, murder, theft, identity theft.They refuse to learn English and expect US to press 1 for English. They demand our resources to educate their children, and provide free medical care and school lunches.
They worship La Raza and make demands on the citizenry.
Throw them OUT, do not reward bad behavior and law breaking.

These people KNEW they were breaking the law when they came into this country illegally and stayed. Send ´em all back. --And the children who are also here illegally--why should they be allowed to stay either? It´s said that they shouldn´t be punished for their parents´ breaking the laws. Why not? What is the saying in the Bible about generations paying for the sins of their fathers for 7 generations? Why SHOULDN´T families be broken up because one of the parents broke the law? Sounds harsh, but maybe it would cause fewer people to BREAK the laws if they knew that was what would happen.

Guess I misinterpreted Rubio´s immigration plan. I thought he said America needed and desired skilled workers. Illegal immagrants now living in our country would be given work permits. Any illegal who committed a serious crime would be deported. Those here now would not immediately become citizens and would not be eligible to vote or take advantage of benefits that American citizens enjoy. In order to eventually become American citizens, supposedly years away, these illegals would have to go to the end of the line and perform certain requirements as there are others from many different countries in line ahead of them. Fairness needs to be a priority. None of this would be done until the border is secured. He didn´t say how. I don´t remember anything being said about chain migration. I hope all the aunts, uncles, grandmothers, cousins, brothers, sisters, etc., will not be allowed to enter the U.S. We could have upwards of 50 million non-assimilating immigrants. Americans really need to wake up..their standard of living and way of life is being attacked. Our Constitution is being ignored and we have an authoritarian President who has no respect for the rule of law. If anything, one would think Americans would fight for the future of their children. Why are so many so accepting? When there are no more unemployment payments or foodstamps, when more businesses are closed by unelected bureacrats and the end of what is the best medical care in the world ceases and an oppressive "big brother" Government takes control of our lives, curtails our liberties..then this great nation called America will no longer be. Only the memories of citizens of a certain age will be left to tell the tale of what it was like to be truly free.

Rubio has decided to become as mccain. He seems to be very concerned about his political future and perhaps he needs 11 million future votes to run for President as did his mentor,mcain. And will lose, because by that time,Hillary will have learned to speak Spanish.

No! No! No! ...We remember when the devious beltway dem pols pulled this trick last time in the 1980s! They PROMISED then, ´´Never again!´´ ...´´One-time-only amnesty would fix EVERYTHING!´´ The dem pols would, ´´NEVER,´´ again even think of, much less legislate, amnesty again!

However, the current power-crazed conniving dem pols are apparently emboldened enough to try ANY radical statist policy during 0bama´s tenure, so yet again, they are plotting to but water-down & demean the precious value of each American´s legal, ´´USA Citizenship,´´ with the inclusion of millions of votes of ILLEGAL aliens?!!! There is no longer any thought of the once required assimulation into American culture and traditions as the dem pols bulldoze, ´´FORWARD!´´

Boomtown´s gang is now proceeding like Lucy in Peanuts, pulling Charlie Brown´s football away YET AGAIN!!! How gullible is the GOP if its leaders fall for this con again? mmm mmm mmm

Once they become citizens, they don´t need the "protection" of the Dems.

They´ll get jobs, pay taxes, succeed, become wealthy and Republicans.

This is a joke. As others have said, it didn´t work in 1986, and it won´t work now.

When people came through Ellis Island, they had to promise that they would not become a burden to society--they had to have some sort of support in this country until they got on their feet. If they were sick, they were denied entry. And they got a job quickly, because they had to. Those sorts of conditions are gone now. How many lawbreakers will just become wards of the state?

My "Path Way to Citizenship" for illegal immigrants:

1. Go home (to your country of origin).

2. Apply for a visa.

3. Apply for permanent resident status.

4. Apply for Citizenship.

(Just like everyone else.)

Let´s look at some facts. Since records have been kept, the GOP has never even come close to winning the Hispanic vote:
1980 + 21% Democrat advantage over GOP
1984 +24% D advantage despite Reagan amnesty)
1988 +39% D advantage
1992 +36% D advantage
2000 +27% D advantage
2004 +18% D advantage
2008 +36% D advantage
2012 +46% D advantage

Latin America is comprised of many countries. How many right of center leaders can you name? Any? 11 million is definately on the low end because its a government estimate. This round of amnesty will bring in more like 25 million. And after that, bring on the next round of illegals. Time for Teh Stupid Party to go bye bye.

The illegals will get every benefit in the bill,

OTOH those enforcement provisions such as visa tracking and border security will not be enforced at all.

But since enforcement is supposed to come first the government will just lie and say that has been done. Expect it about two months before the 1914 elections. They will just have time to register to vote.

It really doesn´t matter. Washington couldn´t be bothered for decades when the problem was small and easily controlled. Now they are just passing another useless law.

While I am firmly against this, if it happens, I have three quick thoughts.....

1) It gets capped at eleven million, NOT eleven million & one.

2) Every one of them will be required to file a 1040, and NOT allowed to claim an EIC.

3) There will be no future allowances for "family" members who have not yet come here.

Please feel free to add additional requirements.

#24 - supposedly the single poll showing W closing the Hispanic gap (your +18%) in 2004 was an outlier. Other evidence shows that W´s 2004 Hispanic performance was not much different from his 2000 result. Unfortunately that one poll sufficiently confused the man into gambling the rest of his political capital in pushing an amnesty bill in the summer of 2007 not just once but twice.

His approval numbers dropped sharply in that summer and never came back.

The politicians proposing this change to immigration law and amnesty are the same eight who always show up when someone talks up another amnesty.

Nobody knows how many illegal aliens are here. Obama´s media water carriers propaganda says 11 million, but in reality there may be 20 million.

Once legalized they would start bringing huge numbers of their foreign relatives here. That would accelerate more once they were granted US citizenship. The Liberal Democrats know that most will be Democrat voters in the years ahead, and would not be pushing a path to citizenship and voting rights for them if they ever thought that those mostly poor and uneducated people would ever have an epifinany and vote for conservative Republicans.

Most will get on government financed social welfare programs on a massive scale and be politically beholden to the liberal Democrats for giving them access and expanding those programs.

The Democrats will register those people by the millions of vote as soon as they can. With that many new voters the Democrats will be able to change the political balance of the country and keep the stupid party from ever again winning national elections. The end result of this exercise will be long-term political suicide for the Republicans!

I heard today on the radio that it is 2 republicans. The only remaining 2 that voted for amnesty the last time which they ticked off many conservatives and voted out many so called republicans.

Nothing bi partisan about this. This is a back room deal with obama asking for more and the compromise will be 11 million illegals being given amnesty. Each illegal will be allowed to bring in 5 members of their family - before yoy know it there will be 100 million Mexicans and our country will be gone.

This is such beeS. I live in a sea of brown in various shades. I don´t know any poor immigrants out of work. They have jobs and work for cash while the women have more kids and ask for social services. If you have never looked at the application for welfare, you should.

Agriculture ? What a joke. Here they are told working in ag is beneath them and are encouraged to either go to a tech school and get a stipen, or if they have ever paid taxes, sign up for disability from working in the fields for ten seconds.

Expecting them to sign up to pay taxes is a joke. Even more women will be filing tax forms for child credits on taxes however.

Those professionals with degrees will take even more jobs from the highly educated here still looking for work like the engineer´s wife who told Zippy her husband needed a job.

I will venture even further to say the gang of eight live in gated communities and haven´t a clue what the real world looks like.

WASHINGTON – Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has denied an emergency request by the National Rifle Association to block enforcement of a California city ordinance that bans gun magazines capable of holding more than 10 bullets. A court spokesman says Kennedy denied the request without comment. The ban in Sunnyvale went into effect last week after 66 percent of voters approved it in November. The NRA challenged the law, but a federal judge ruled that it does not violate the Second Amendment right to own guns for self-defense.

The House approved legislation Wednesday that would let Congress file civil suits against the Executive Branch for failing to enforce the laws, a response to what Republicans say is an Obama administration that routinely ignores the will of Congress. Members approved the bill in a 233-181 vote. Every Republican voted for it, along with five Democrats: Reps. John Barrow (Ga.), Henry Cuellar (Texas), Pete Gallego (Texas), Collin Peterson (Minn.), and Nick Rahall (W.Va.). The bill is the culmination of years of GOP frustration with Obama´s use of Executive Branch discretion. Republicans have cited Obama´s decisions to deprioritize the deportation of

The Democratic chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee declared Wednesday that cabinet secretaries do not have to answer questions at hearings if they don’t feel like it, the latest breakdown in collegiality. In a politically-charged atmosphere during a hearing on increasing the minimum wage, HELP Committee Chairman Tom Harkin brushed aside ranking Sen. Lamar Alexander´s request for a “yes or no” answer from Labor Secretary Thomas Perez. Alexander was asking Perez if he believes that the Congressional Budget Office is qualified to judge the impact of raising the minimum wage. The CBO has said increasing the

House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans initiated a probe Wednesday to determine who at the Environmental Protection Agency was responsible for crafting greenhouse gas emission rules for future power plants. The GOP members want to zero in on a provision in the proposed rule that they say violated the Energy Policy Act of 2005, as it cited carbon capture and sequestration projects that received federal funding. They said the act prevents the EPA from requiring new power plants to use that technology, which would be necessary to comply with the rule. "EPA may only impose emissions standards that would require the use

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy. I think he is semi-delusional about the results of these five years. There is not a spot in the world you -- can go from Syria to Libya to Iran to China, to Russia to Ukraine

In an online comedy bit with comedian Zach Galifianakis, Pres. Obama asks what could be considered a very serious question. In a mock online interview on the Funny Or Die website, Obama asks Galifianakis if he thinks First Lady Michelle Obama would marry a nerd: (Video) Zack Galifianakis: "You said if you had a son, you would not let him play football. What makes you think that he would want to play football? What if he was a nerd, like you?" Pres. Obama: "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd?"

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state. As for Cinque and the exchange with

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager. "I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., said, correcting the freshman senator. Booker laughed weakly. "I did not drive to Hawaii," he admitted. "Thank you for that clarification, I

Sean Hannity introduced last night’s climate change all-nighter session in the Senate by calling it a “waste of time” for Democrats. He then invited Fox’s Bob Beckel and Greenpeace co-founder turned climate change skeptic Patrick Moore to hash it out over what Hannity called “propaganda and a hoax.” After accusing Beckel of saying everyone in the South believes “crap,” Hannity moved on to Moore, asking him “where is the evidence to suggest this is real and not a political agenda?” “There is no scientific proof that we’re causing climate change,” Moore declared, stressing that he does believe the planet is

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican

Madison — Police arrested six people believed to be involved in what they´re calling one of the most brutal crimes in recent memory. Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23. Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping. The suspects are accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting the woman who was six months pregnant. "I can tell you that in my 27-plus years of
