Skip to comments.GOP opens door to immigration reform after election loss (Just throw in some more "freebies")
Posted on 11/12/2012 3:34:59 AM PST by tobyhill
Republicans are warming to the idea of reforming the "broken" U.S. immigration system in the wake of their defeat in this week's presidential election by Democratic incumbent Barack Obama, who was the choice of 70 percent of Hispanic voters.
Among those raising the issue after Tuesday's loss at the polls is the GOP's highest-ranking elected official, House Speaker John Boehner, who speaks of the need for a plan to deal with the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants now in the country. "What I'm talking about is a common-sense, step-by-step approach to secure our borders, allow us to enforce the laws and fix a broken immigration system," he said Friday at a press conference.
"It's just time to get the job done," Boehner said, though declining to offer any specific ideas.
Expressing Republicans' willingness to work with Democrats, the speaker stressed that "on an issue this big, the president has to lead."

What about a “Romneyphone” for minorities?
this is about cheap labor for the GOP first and votes for the GOP second.
Now they are working in concert to finish the job.
The GOP will never win their vote.
i LOVE Rush’s solution to this....OFFER them ALL Amnesty, BUT they can’t VOTE for 25 years!!! See who says “NO WAY”!!!
I think it is a smart move to allow Hispanics to push out Blacks. Hispanics are, after all, the number one minority in the country. Blacks have been acting for years as if they are half the population and that simply isn’t true. Time for Hispanics to take the place Blacks have occupied since the sixties.
It will be overturned in under 5 years by the supreme court.
“The GOP will never win their vote.”
They should be able to win many of them; in my area many foreigners are opening businesses. The legal aliens are often the entrepreneurial classes from their country of origin, and are often taxpayers.
Blacks act as if they are half the population....true. Time for Hispanics to take the place Blacks have occupied since the sixties.
Apparently you have not read about Rev JJ'$$$ new plan$$S for "di$enfranchi$ed" Black people (/snix).
Rev Jackson: Black Voters Deserve A Return On Election Investment
WBBM-AM / FR Posted by 2ndDivisionVet
EXCERPT The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Saturday said that President Obamas reelection was a great victory, but that it would be incomplete with a reconstruction of urban America and an investment in the communities where the blacks who voted overwhelmingly for the president live. Were happy and full of pride, in the presidents reelection, Jackson told the crowd at the Saturday morning forum at Rainbow/PUSH headquarters, 930 E. 50th St., but our houses remain raggedy our schools remain closed. Despite attempts at voter suppression in states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, Jackson said, blacks turned out en masse to vote, enduring waits that stretched into hours in many places. We waited, we voted, we believed, Jackson said. Now we want to get well. We voted early, we voted long. Our votes won, he said. --SNIP--
I guess Rev JJ thinks O is off to a good start (/snix):
O's billion dollar stimulus was strictly for the 47%'s entitlements and public sector budgets......BUT ONLY in states that were re/electing democrats. The money is gone but public sector got 2 years worth of budget goodies out of it........as O schemes to have the rest of us pay and pay and pay.
And howz'about O's other billion dollar fraud (one that we know of)---"minority" farmers getting federal payouts without having to prove they even raised a radish?
Amnesty was in the bag already, presumably as payoff to campaign donors.
In his second debate with Obama, Romney almost couldn’t stop himself from trying to make another $10K bet—this one guaranteeing that he would get ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ passed within the year.
He knew it was a done deal already.
HYPHENATE PRICE TAG-—the price we are paying so that vote-crazed Obama and other desperate pols can get re/elected.
NOTE Oftentimes the conniving pols bury these programs within other programs making them difficult to find. Americans have been hammered with govt propaganda that it was the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting the US. Heres the real reasons:
1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments.

2. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.Verify at: http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.HTML
3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens. Verify at: http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.HTML
4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary & secondary education for children here illegally and [usually] cannot speak a word of English. Verify at: http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt....0.HTML
5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies (or as Terry Anderson says JACKPOT babies!)Verify at: http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML
6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. Verify at: http://transcripts.cnn.com/%20TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML
7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. Verify at: http://transcripts.CNN..com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt...01.HTML
8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & socialservices by the American taxpayers. Verify at: http://premium.cnn..com/TRANSCIPTS/0610/29/ldt.01..HTML
9. $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens. Verify at: http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRI
13. In 2006, illegals sent $45 BILLION in remittances to their countries of origin.

14. The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States. Verify at: http: // www.drdsk.com/articleshtml
The total cost is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR WHICH WOULD BE ENOUGH TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY FOR THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY. Are we THAT Stupid?WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!!!!!
1. The Earned Income Credit...money people get back on their taxes that they NEVER paid into in the first place! Illegal aliens, most of which pay zero in net taxes, enjoyed $4.2 billion from the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) last year. Thats more than the annual revenue from the selected oil tax deductions and corporate jet deductions combined!Verify: http://www.redstate.com/dhorowitz3/2011/09/02/illegal-aliens-receive-4-2-billion-in-additional-child-tax-credits/
2. The cost of prosecuting and making SURE the rights of illegals are protected by US laws madefor US citizens. In 2009, the U.S. Justice Dept filed nearly 92,000 pro-immigrant-related criminal cases in the federal courts. The record-breaker accounted for more than half of all new federal prosecutions, according to data maintained at Syracuse University. Verify at:
True;however, when that cheap labor votes in politicians who pass legislation making onerous regulations that are so aggegious it offsetss any financial gains of the cheap labor, which is precisely what is happening in California and now maybe the rest of the country, it’s a mute point. GOP-e has committed suicide with the open border policy in more ways than one and it has finally destroyed the nation.
Here is where the line must be drawn. This would be the party deal breaker because the ‘r’ would become useless. I and others would be permanently finished with the ‘g’ OP politics, period, if they help reward illegal immigrants with voting priviledges [and I do mean ‘priviledge’].
Might as well start a new constitutionalist party from scratch if that happens.
“The GOP will never win their vote.”
Right. Our neighbors in Central and South America are raised to hate everything a pre-Obama America stands for. They hate our military, they hate the rich, they hate the concepts of freedom, and they are cynical enough to think that every party is as corrupt as the DNC — ‘everybody does it’.
You’ve got to be crazy. Make citizens of the Hispanic illegals here and we’ll have nothing but race-based socialism ever after.
We told you what the common sense approach was 5 years ago.
Build the fence first.
You failed to do that—now go pound sand.
We cannot afford 30 million illegals, with between 71 and 79% of them receiving a handout from the rest of us, plus sending back $ 25 billion a year to Mexico and other places.
So tell me again, Mr. Weeper, why should we Hispander to those who won’t vote for us anyway?
What a eunuch.
