Posted on 01/29/2013 5:29:25 AM PST by jimbo123
The Obama administration has developed its own proposals for immigration reform that are more liberal than a separate bipartisan effort in the Senate, including a quicker path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, people with knowledge of the proposals said.

That’s why these RINOs need to be pressured by Conservates both inside and OUTSIDE of their districts. If your congressman isn’t a RINO, call the ones OUTSIDE your district instead!
Obama has no desire to stop the flow of potential welfare recipients into this country. His idea of amnesty is registering all of Mexico to vote for free stuff from the few million tax payers still left in this country...
When the money runs out Greece will look like utopia
This is a coordinated strategy between Bonner , mitchy, rove , Reid, Jeb , mccaishame, grahamnasty ,and the Obama drones !
Did you notice McConnell sending Sen. Sessions out as a sop to conservatives?
McConnell isn’t stopping this deal but too much opposition in the House. The deal will fall apart and we will have fiscal cliff fiasco 2.0: the dems voting it through the House with GOP “leadership” hiding under their desks. BOHICA.
Do you know that then-senator Obama cast the deciding vote AGAINST the immigration reform bill in 2007?
I don’t think he will actually pass his liberal bill - I think he made so unacceptable, on purpose, to ensure it remains an open issue - and he can blame the Republicans for ‘blocking’ his bill. Thus ensuring that more voters will vote against the Republicans, probably forever.
I also believe the same about his gay marriage lies. He wants that to remain open as well, another issue he can blame the Republicans for.
It really doesn’t matter which way the Republicans vote. If they support illegal amnesty, they alienate their own voters and the Dem voters will still be Dem votes.
If they support gay marriage, same thing. Their own voters will be alienated and the gays will still vote for the Dems.
It’s a win-win for Obama and the Republicans are unable to win no matter what they do.
I’m 66 and I don’t think I will see another Republican President in my lifetime.
Previous voter registration is the key. Anyone who is against checking that and making it a deal breaker until charges are tried is lying about wanting fair immigration reform.
"OF course it will be more 'liberal'. Its all the democrats have to do when the GOP tries to play their game - just raise the progressive ante."
Yep. This why Republicans will always lose the pandering game. They will never be able to match the goodies that the Dems can promise.
Plus, Obama's announcing his own, even further leftwing plan, in order to make the Senate "bipartisan" plan look "moderate" in comparison. He wants people to focus on his plan to try to get them to overlook the multitude of flaws with the Senate plan, so that the Senate plan can be the default in the end.
So our national debt is 17 trillion, but we’re taking on a multi-trillion dollar health care bill, and then adding tens of millions of foreigners onto the free health care bill? What could possibly go wrong?
I dont think he will actually pass his liberal bill - I think he made so unacceptable, on purpose, to ensure it remains an open issue - and he can blame the Republicans for blocking his bill. Thus ensuring that more voters will vote against the Republicans, probably forever.
I think the Dems really want to get amnesty done this time. Huge Dem voting blocks in key places like FL and TX. FL will become a solid blue state with amnesty and Dem GOTV.
The dims won’t get a better time to push it through since the GOP thinks they have our votes locked up due to gun control. It’s going to happen, now.
Baynative: “It is amnesty and voter registration for the DNC - nothing more.”
And that is exactly why the Obama immigration plan is to #1 NOT secure the border as a precondition and #2 speed up the amnesty process.
Buy Votes & Collaborate with Enemies
“I won! I will be More Flexible!”
Long ago George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and many other Founding Fathers warned that when the “greedy takers” - non-working voters exceed the number of productive citizens that the takers and corrupt politicians will start voting for bribes for themselves and bribing private companies to receive kickbacks
As America started increasing the numbers of voters certain special interest groups demanded that government give them everything they desired and more
That is what we now see in Washington DC and in our state capitals and our huge crime ridden bankrupt urban cities and chrony-capitalist companies run by politician’s relatives
President Dwight David Eisenhower gave us the same dire warnings too.
MNDude: “What could possibly go wrong?”
Why nothing of course. These are hard working undocumented immigrants who are doing the nasty jobs Americans won’t do. They’re also faithful Catholics, totally conservative, highly moral Christians who strongly support traditional family, respect the law, and can’t wait to join American conservatives. Plus, let us not forget that most of them have lived here so long they can’t remember anything about their home countries. They’re practically Americans already! It would be a crime against humanity to send them home to a place they don’t even know!
And WHAT OF THOSE GOING AT BEING AND AMERICAN CITIZEN LEGALLY? I MEAN WHAT MESSAGE DOES THAT SEND TO THEM?
Gads, does this idiot ever think things through? Talk of shooting from the hip
Karliner: “Gads, does this idiot ever think things through?”
Well, that’s one theory. The other theory is he knows exactly what he’s doing. Personally? I think it’s the latter. Even if President Obama is himself an idiot, his advisers are not necessarily so. They have a plan. Remaking the USA with waves of newly amnestied, generally socialist immigrants is part of it.
Last night I was watching Univision and they were talking about Amnesty. I couldnt understand much they were saying, but they kept showing children in Mexico crying saying “I miss my father”.
I guess their point was that families are being separated by the mean USA whenever an illegal succesfully makes it across the border but his family remains on the other side.
Boo flippin' hoo. Why don't they (these dads) just stay in Meheeco and *demand* better wages/conditions? They can "be the change" for their homeland.
That's why I am writing congressional reps to urge that they include checking voter registration on all applicants.
Rush takes it even further by saying the bill should include that the amnesty include not voting for 25 years.
Democrat opposition would prove their insincerity.
Jamie Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) is being targeted by democrats to vote for amnesty. She needs contacting.
NOTE: When contacting reps using their automated email link it is wise to copy one of their office addresses and zip code if you don't live in their district. Otherwise your message is filtered out. I learned this from an office staffer in DeeCee.
That Shariah poster reminded me of the laugh I had trying to envision what it looked like at the Muslim Inaugural Ball for Obama last week. No, drinking, no music, no dancing ... how does that work at a ball?
