Amnesty Plan Equals 'Unlimited Future Illegal Immigration'
NewsMax ^ | Jan 28, 2013 | David Yonkman

Posted on 01/28/2013 12:47:51 PM PST by EXCH54FE

An agreement over sweeping overhaul of immigration law reached by a bipartisan group of leading senators has quickly drawn its critics.

The outline of the plan covers border security, guest workers and employer verification, as well as a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country.

The deal, expected to be announced later this afternoon, has a long wayto go before the thorny details are worked out. But the development heralds the start of what could be the most significant effort in years toward overhauling the nation's inefficient patchwork of immigration laws.

It is already drawing critics who say it will add an incalculable financial toll on America

If your business model requires the use of underpaid workers, making your current workers citizens, paying necessary higher wages to new Americans will not benefit your business. You will still need your slave laborers.

The Republican Party is dead to me.

Does anyone have a list of the votes?

Same here. The Republicans better hope that their fond dreams of that mythical “conservative hispanic voting bloc” come true (which they won’t), because they have lost my vote forever, and I won’t hold my nose “for the sake of the nation” ever again, because I finally recognise that this nation is done, stick a fork in it, anyway.

Illegals are government growth hormone and this will lead to explosive government growth.

30 million plus illegals are enough to create some 50 more primarily democrat congressional districts with all their costs, earmarks, pork, and entitlements. Anybody supporting this crap should burn their conservative card right now because calling yourselves conservative is simply lying.

How can this be a financial toll on America? After all, that great Republican John McCain told us a million times they do the jobs Americans don’t want to do - it’ll boost the economy!

And that other great Republican George W Bush told us over and over that family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande. Yep, good ole Dubya saw fit to relax border controls instead of tighten them, even in the face of 9/11.

Can’t wait to see what Rubio’s BS spin on this is...

Black republicans don’t draw the black vote and hispanic republicans won’t fair any better.

I saw this coming ten years ago under Bush’s administration. Does anyone recall the interview with GW when the interviewer told GW that 85% of Americans were against illegal immigration. His reponse was, “well I think they’re wrong”. That is why I turned to the Constitution Party. No need for voter fraud now. I feel sorry for the future of my children.

Ted Kennedy: 1986 Amnesty

“In 1986 Senator Kennedy said, ‘This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.’ If Senator Kennedy lied to us then, how can we trust him now?” . “Attrition through enforcement is the only fair and feasible way to deal with the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens currently in the United States. This proposal guarantees only that the problem of illegal immigration will only grow exponentially as it did after the 1986 amnesty.”

How many pages is it?

Do we have to pass it to find out what’s in it?

“because they have lost my vote forever, “

yes, me too. They are insane if they think they will ever win again without The Tea Party and/or Libertarians or just plan conservatives who never identified with a particular party.

Exactly, and Republican politicians, who are generally savvy when it comes to their careers if nothing else, must know this. Which makes me wonder what’s in it for them.

I would re-title this: Amnesty means permanent one party democrat rule.

Nothing is new in history.

Look up the “Edict of Caracalla,” where in 212 a Roman emperor granted citizenship to all the illegals in his empire, mainly to tax them.

Check it out. Perspective is the gift of a history education.

I’m thinking the same. All those times of getting to the polls, even in the primaries, because “my vote could make a difference”... ... makes one feel like a schmuck, eh?

To paraphrase Hillary: “what difference does it make?”

Since the election, there have been the whispers in the wind that the Republican party was finished — while others claimed that no “third party” could ever supersede it.

Think back twenty-plus years ago to when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down. I recall talking heads of that time saying, that even though the wall was gone, it would be years and years before the “two Germanys” would re-unite. Well, only a year or so later, it was “one Germany” again. Certain “historical waves”, once they get rolling, grow beyond control, assume a life of their own.

Told you that to tell you this:
In the few short months since the election, the Republican party is collapsing on itself at a rate faster than the Berlin Wall was torn down. If it continues to self-destruct, something will have to rise up to replace it. This could happen more quickly than anyone could have foreseen or predicted.

I’m wondering if there will still -be- a “Republican Party” by 2022?

Nope. We’re back to the early 20th. century where immigrants powering urban machine politics kept the Dimocrats on top until Reagan.

Totally skewed poll. It is impossible to say you are against illegal immigration. Period. 66% is a lie.

I am more focussed on some more far important events in the story of man on this earth soon coming to pass, very soon-events which I and other believers will be allowed to watch from the vantage point of the Marriage Feast of Our Lord and His Bride. I don’t know how to thank God enough for the Blessed Hope, except to try to bring more into the fold to escape the coming destruction, and persecution, and wrath like nothing we could imagine from the Evil One because he too will know that his time is short.

Yes, but the problem is that there is no guaranty that whatever rises up to take its place will be conservative, Constitutional, or traditionally American as far as what we understand American values to be. We’ve already tipped over into more takers than makers, and they have their own grievances, and they outnumber us. Not to mention that left has a voting fraud machine in place that we could never match if we wanted to. They’ve infiltrated, undermined, and taken over every American institution, including the media and academia for decades now, and more recently the “mainstream” Christian church and the military.
It’s all over. Our last organistion to work through politically-the Republican party-has shown they have their own agenda to serve their own interests.
Two things will be my priority now-to not allow myself and family to be disarmed, and to study prophecy alongside current events. That will tell me what I need to know, and how best to be ready for it.

I’m with you but not sure we as believers escape the “destruction, and persecution, and wrath”. Not here on earth, anyway.
