Schumer, Graham: Boston brings urgency to immigration reform ("Faster-not-slower" they both say)
The Hill ^ | April 21, 2013 | Mike Lillis

Posted on 04/21/2013 10:55:19 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The Boston Marathon tragedy is a reason for Congress to move faster – not slower – to overhaul the nation's immigration system, according to two co-authors of a Senate reform package.

Some conservatives on Capitol Hill have suggested Monday's deadly bombings – allegedly orchestrated by a pair of young immigrants from Russia's volatile Caucasus region – should cause lawmakers to move more deliberately in their approach to immigration reform this year.

But Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) – chief architects of a sweeping bipartisan immigration proposal unveiled last week – argued Sunday that their bill will help prevent future terrorist attacks at home and should be taken up as soon as possible.

"Now is the time to bring all of the 11 million [undocumented immigrants] out of the shadows and find out who they are. Most of them are here to work, but we may find some terrorists in our midst," Graham said in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" program. "What happened in Boston … should urge us to act quicker, not slower, when it comes to getting the 11 million identified."

Schumer echoed that message and accused those urging a slower process of using the Boston tragedy as "an excuse" to kill the bill....

No,,,it means exactly the opposite. The “reform” will give us more of what we saw in Boston, more Arab spring types, more cartels, etc.

when they say reform we get something like Obamacare

this new immigration bill is 1500 pages the equivalent of an immigration Obamacare that of course will grow government, give amnesty to illegals, and let 100 million more of their relatives in.

look people the problem is these laws, gov creates a problem as the 1965 immigration act another law created this illegal and 3rd world immigration problem , so they say let’s fix immigration so then we get an even worse monster to add to our troubles, more gov, another 1500 page law which is not the answer. the answer is to repeal the 1965 immigration act as repealing Obamacare is

11 million illegals? It’s a lot more than that.

Have them “come out of the shadows?” Illegals are protesting, marching, demanding free healthcare, etc.
Since when are they “in the shadows?”

“Most of them are here to work, but we may find some terrorists in our midst.”

As well as car thieves, anchor babies, rapists, dope traffickers, murderers, welfare cheats, et al. But 10% of 11 million is only 1,100,000.

Had we enforced the existing laws, the little ba***** would hve been deported and this most likely wouldn't have happened.

Had Bubba taken Bin Laden when he was offered on a platter, 9-11 may have never happened.

Had Hasan been kicked out on his ***, the Ft. Hood incident may never had happened.

Poor leadership! Cowards all!! Period...

Even if I was to accept this premise there is zero national security gained from giving these illegals US citizenship, as Obama imiigration admin gave to that terrorist who just bombed Boston.

The GOP seems determined to go down this suicidal path.

SC was once the bright hope of the GOP in the South after Strom Thurmond switched parties. I don’t think it has turned out as planned, considering old Strom’s successor.

TOO BAD CHARLIE That's what you think---but the most important thing is what Americans think .... Immigration reform is the gateway to terrorism. "Undocumented" is code for "ethnic solidarity" (Boston bombers w/ a latino accent).

US politicans aiding and abetting terror against Americans should be investigated----determine who is giving them their marching orders----possible collusion and conspiracy with foreign agents to undermine US ntl security.

The word is out: "undocumented" terrorists, come on down---invade the US, and bring bombs. It's open season to conduct dirty deeds....and US politicans are helping us."

=========================================================

THE "UNDOCUMENTED" TEACH ETHNIC SOLIDARITY---AND VOW TO KILL AMERICANS.

BLOOD-CURDLING "LA RAZA STUDIES"---ACTUALLY TAUGHT IN ARIZONA SCHOOLS FOR TEN YEARS : These shocking quotes are taken directly from A LA Raza textbook "Occupied America" (pg. 167): “Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (also known as the Plan of San Diego). LA Raza school textbook chapter from “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and if worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

La Raza books also talk about the need for the govt of Mexico to re-take seven states in SW United States. so that the Southwest USA would become a Chicano nation.

YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to "La Raza charter schools" via the US Dept of Education grants. These charter schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

La Raza is using taxpayer funds to organize the murdering of Americans; the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.

ARIZONA SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASE--- Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza ethnic solidarity indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.

Cong Raul Grijalva (and friend) is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal representatives in our Congress....aiding--abetting and funding La Raza studies.

AS SICKOFLIBS INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: Even if Americans were to accept the politicians' preposterous premise that there is zero national security threats by giving "the undocumented" all the benefits of US citizenship, we MUST keep in mind that sap-happy Obama immigration policies conferred on the viscious Boston bombers the very same benefits.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old Chechen terrorist killed Friday morning in a wild shootout with Boston police, was a legal US resident. He could have been sent back to his homelabd after a 2009 domestic violence conviction. BUT thanks to Obama’s sucking up to ethnic solidarity terrorism, the prez sap-happily decreed that "deportations" are limited only to for foreigners who committed “serious crimes” ao obama allowed the bomber to stay and do his dirty work.

The second bro/bomberDzhokhar Tsarnaev--now in a Boston hosp[ital---gained US citizenship in 2012 after being granted "asylum" in 2002.

NOTE THAT Foreigners who come here claiming "asylum" suck off American taxpayers bigtime---they are able to collect generous monthly checks from SS without having put a dime into it.

OH, GO STUFF YOURSELF IN A CAN, CHARLIE Who is giving Schumer his marching orders? Is Charlie in collusion with foreign govts of "The Undocumented"? The FBI should subpoena Charlie's phone records, emails and snail mail of every amnesty freak on Capitol Hill. Examine the freaks' campaign contributors, foreign travel, Capitol Hill staff, etc.

NANCY SUCKS UP---doing the deals to get reinstated as majority leader.


L-R--Sen. Robert Menendez , (D-NJ); Dr. Salomon Melgen, VOXXI Chairman of the Board; Rep Nancy Pelosi; Francisco J. Sanchez, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, and Emilio Sanchez, president and CEO of VOXXI during the latino NALEO Gala in Washington. (Photo/ Dr Melgen's ethnic solidarity website---Voxxi)

======================================================

Dems are sucking up every which way but loose---At the Dem 2012 convention San Antonio Mayor Juan Castro (his twin brother is a Congressman) was the Dem keynoter....Juan genially introduced their mother---Maria “Rosie” Castro.

Mamasita Castro is a busy activist---a radical ethno-centric anti-assimilationist---a key figure in ethnic solidarity activities. Mamasita is connected to the racialist “La Raza" which promulgates the federally-funded La Raza terrorist studies program in US schools----advocating bloody latino uprisings and mass killings of Americans.

THE CASTROS---LATINO UNDERWORLD KINGPINS HOLDING PUBLIC OFFICE God only knows how many ruses the Castros use to get elected---and how much govt money the Castos and Mamasita La Raza are scamming.

Every govt budget, agency, and bank account under Cong Castro and San Antonio Mayor Juan Castro's control should be examined with a fine-tooth comb for govt fraud, racketeering, conspiracy, collusion, nepotism, secret LLC accounts, and money laundering, wire fraud, tax evasion, etc, etc, etc.

The feral government selectively enforces only the parts of the current immigration law that result in more Democrat voters.

There is no reason to believe that they won't selectively enforce only the parts of any new immigration law that result in more Democrat voters.

This proposed immigration law has the same weakness as the proposed gun-control laws had: Laws only influence the behavior of law-abiding people. They have no effect on law breakers. Every single illegal immigrant is a law breaker.

Unless this law will improve their situation (and maybe not even then), they will ignore it. Anyone with a criminal record or outstanding warrants will ignore it. This law will not catch any criminals.

No one in our government seems to understand this.
