"Gang of eight" hoping for immigration bill this week, Schumer says
cbsnews.com ^ | 4/8/2013 | staff

CBS News) The "gang of eight" senators working on a comprehensive immigration reform bill that includes a pathway to citizenship could present the legislation by the end of this week, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday on "Face the Nation."

Joined by his friend and fellow "gang" member Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Schumer said the staffs of the four Republican and four Democratic senators "are in a room working 12 hours a day, taking all the agreements that we've come to over the last three months, and turning them into legislative language, specific legislative language."

All You Need to Know About Any Gang of 8 Immigration "Deal": Key Players, 1986-2013

CHARLES SCHUMER: "Immigration Reform & Control" (Amnesty) in 1986 & "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" (Amnesty) in 2013.

Heading the congressional fight to pass the 1986 Amnesty, Schumer warned, "We are here to solve problems before they become crises. Sure enough, if we do nothing, our immigration problem will become an immigration crisis."

Different cover names and different times - but still "brokering" the "bi-partisan" Amnesty deals to sell out Americans.

JOHN MCCAIN: Keating-5 in1989 & Gang of 8 in 2013.
Saying it would not stop the flood of illegals into the country, McCain voted against Schumer's 1986 Amnesty. After his predication and vote proved so correct, how is it that McCain then moved to the wrong side of the issue? When he got caught in 1989 with the gang of 4 Democrat grafters in the Keating-5 scandle, to save his political career, he signed his soul over to the Democrat media. He's been dancing their tune ever since.

Different gangs and different times - but still "crossing the aisle" to sell out Americans! And McCain's membership in the 1st gang figures as critical as the 2nd in any 2013 immigration "deal."

It was sickening to watch Schumer and McCain heaping praise on each other for this ‘big accomplishment’.

The MSM is giddy, keeps saying over and over ‘The GOP needs this’ (the deal includes citizenship for illegals)

McCain keeps whining about GOP filibusters.

All I need to know about the Congressional bypass ‘deal’ is does this unenforceable immigration ‘law’ include the sentence “MEXICANS, GO HOME!” ?

Conspiring to destroy our nation once & for all (except for the elitists) and enjoying every minute of it. We need a great, bloody battle Am Rev II or CW II to wipe these liberal, socialist bastards away! Both demoRATs & traiterous repubs!

Now we know why Democrats go ballistic when voter ID comes up....would reduce their vote count considerably.

Votino vote scam artist---Bronx Democrat Nelson Castro, a Dominican Republic native---led a life of crime before landing in the Albany legislature.

IS HE A US CITIZEN? Nelson Castro, the Bronx state assemblyman at the center of NY's latest political corruption scandal — got into office even though he had a record of criminal arrests in two states and had lied in court about voter registration fraud at his Bronx apartment.

BACKSTORY Bronx Democratic Party leaders anointed Castro---a former staff member for State Sen. Adriano Espaillat, a Dominiocan Republic native; party bosses were eager to elect a young Dominican politician in the South Bronx, where the Dominican population was growing rapidly.

He was a candidate who had led a life of crime:

<><> a 1989 felony arrest in Michigan for larceny. Michigan court records show that 19-year old Castro pled guilty to a misdemeanor conspiracy and was sentenced to 180 days probation.

<><> In 2003, Castro was arrested again in New York, this time for grand larceny. He was accused of pocketing $4,900 in unemployment checks while holding a job. He pled guilty to petty larceny, repaid the money and was slapped with three years probation.

<><> Then in March 2008, Castro was arrested a third time — for driving in East Harlem with a revoked license and as a scofflaw who owed more than $3,000 in parking tickets.

Even more disturbing revelations followed.

<><> During the hearing before Special Referee Mary Lynn Dlabola, evidence emerged that 10 people registered to vote from Castro's one-bedroom apt including Castro's fiance, his cousin, his aunt and uncle, two relatives of his fiancée, and three people who were key figures in Nelson's Castro campaign. Most had registered to vote only months before.

But Castro lied---and testified that he had no idea all those people were registered there. Asked why so many people were claiming to live in the same tiny apartment, Castro's lawyer claimed at one point that it was a "common practice in the Dominican community for families to take in relatives."

ARE THE REGISTREES US CITIZENS? Unbelievably, Castro also told the court he "did not know" a man who was actually his coordinator of volunteers. That campaign coordinator was a votino scam artist, and had 15 other people registered to vote at his home address, as well.

The investigation led to a sealed indictment against Castro for perjury. To save himself---he got wired-up and allowed to run again---and be elected. (NY Daily News factoids.)

Yes, by all means, lets legalize millions of people to drive down wages, add to the unemployment lines and put on the public dole.

If Obama got nothing on guns and immigration (esp out of Senate) it would be a huge failure on his record, and libs would be demoralized.....but MCCain is clearly on his side trying to save him.

McCain's a fool.

I'll bet the puffed up elitist goes to Vietnam and expresses amazement about how ‘nice’ the people are... It never occurs to people like McCain that if he was dependent and helpless many of those ‘nice’ people wouldn't be so nice... They'd have him back in a cage in a second.

It's the same for Undocumented Democrats. They commit a criminal act by breaking into our country and they'll keep breaking the laws. They established who they were when they crossed the border illegally.

BUT they'll kiss McCain's butt.

Undocumented Democrats won't harass his wealthy family - they won't take his job - the street gangs they form won't be after his grand-kids... Because John McCain's an effing elitist like Schumer. If these 'two peas in a pod' elitist want illegals here - lets move them next to their families and friends. Let them be inclusive for a while...

And NO this is not prejudice against Mexicans. If these idiots puffed up fools think we need more Brown People - fine. Send the illegals home and let in an equal number of Mexicans who followed the rules and stayed in line to get here. Those types won't be preying on the rest of us. They won't start out as criminals...

You're a fool John McCain...

I figure like the Bush’s McCain has some home/domestic workers like a nanny or cook or housekeeper who are either illegal themselves or have family members who are illegal who cry to him and his wife and so McCain like you say sees nothing wrong with legalizing them etc as long as they didnt break any other laws.

This is similar to the ‘my best friend’s child is gay’ phenomena where they join the marriage equality bus, like the Bush’s and Cheney’s did.

All 3rd world types kiss up to power. It comes from the brutality of the ‘who do you know’ cultures they come from...

Maybe someone should remind McCain that Jan Fonda was treated with much kindness, butt kissing and flattery - by the same people who had him in a cage.

Illegals (Undocumented democrats) don’t kiss up to middle class families. We’re NOT Jane Fonda - but McCain is... to these illegals. McCain’s become an old fool.

Not sure what you are asking me.
You want me to make a thread out of that video?

I think that same Harris Perry vid was referenced here:

The whole instant citizenship for a bunch of Mexicans is a ruse , remember that it will also give it to the hoards of muslims that have been pouring into the country .

Not a snowball’s chance that after this there will ever be anything but a leftist or worse in the White House ever again and these two are almost giddy about it .

America do you really think that you can murder your babies and mock God with gay marriage and remain unrepentant and still expect him to bless you ?
