Boston bombing shouldn't derail immigration reform (Libs already want more terrorist in US)
cnn ^ | 4/20/2013 | Ruben Navarrette

Posted on 04/20/2013 12:35:02 PM PDT by tobyhill

We already knew that opponents of immigration reform had no good arguments in favor of preserving the status quo. Now we know they have no shame.

Some of them are deliberately mixing apples and oranges and trying to use the tragedy of the Boston Marathon bombing to scuttle efforts in Washington to achieve immigration reform.

All last week, my friends in the immigration reform community held their collective breath and hoped that -- when investigators finally zeroed in on a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing -- that person would NOT turn out to be foreign-born. Immigrants are blamed for enough in society; they need not be blamed for this tragedy.

The Communist DemocRATS are really counting on those amnesty voters in 2014 in order to get that huge hammer back for grandma Pelosi.

Ruben Navarrette is either a fool or an advocate of the reconquista. Either way, his opinion is suspect.

While all along CNN have been using Sandy Hook to promote an
unconstitutional gun ban. Hypocrites.

TIME TO RAISE THESE TWO ISSUES ON AMNESTY

(1) When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss amnesty ?

This is a question: Should Mexican citizens when in the US be given the same rights American citizens are given while in Mexico? This has yet to appear on any US legislator’s questionaire from either chamber....ASK YOUR FEDERAL LEGISLATORS WHY IT HASN’T

(2) What makes it necessary for US to subjugate our sovereignty because of available cheap labor ? While the Godless Demo-Coms socialists encourage population control and abortion . Then complain the US is not reproducing enough citizens to replace its aging retiring workforce. But rely on (as the Romans did) on foreigners (barbarians) to keep their welfare ponzie schemes supplied with tax money and keep the system working..

Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.

Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.

Americans can’t own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash they’ll get unceremoniously sent back or put in jail untill some relative comes up with the “fresh”. That’s just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea let’s give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections .

They’re half right—common sense alone should kill the amnesty bill, without regard to the terrorist attacks.

FBI had a thick dossier on Tamerlan Tsarnaev. They couldn’t even figure out that the guy on the video was suspect #1. They received warnings about this guy was involved in terrorist activites and living his whole life in Boston area. If they bothered to go knock on mommy Tsarnaev’s door from MON - Thurs. they would’ve found out the guy had a brother that looks strikingly like Suspect #2. They needed the public to figure it all out for them.

9-11 suspects waltz into this country with relative ease and the government took NO steps to stop them.

Do you trust this government?

Afraid so. They know that, if they force through amnesty then the left will never lose another election. Arizona and Texas will go the way of Colorado and California.

Immigrants are blamed for enough in society; they need not be blamed for this tragedy.

I never hoped that the terrorists would turn out to be black, Muslim, foreign born, white, Christian, Asian, Tea Party, or Amish. My hopes were less bigoted than the hopes of liberals: I hoped the murderers would be captured with no further loss of innocent life. I'm interested in reality: the lost lives of an 8 y/o boy and of a 29 y/o woman, and the lost limbs of so many others. Liberals are disgustingly self-centered, caring mainly about whether a terrible crime would make it harder to push their political agenda through. How can leftists stand to look in the mirror? I would be ashamed if I was that shallow.

At least this author insults over half the nation, but doesn't pretend to be conservative, like Norquist.

Senate Gang of Eight: Immigration Is “Ours To Lose”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3009500/posts

[snip] Grover Norquist: “In an unlikely pairing, renowned anti-tax activist Grover Norquist stood alongside AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, the leader of the nation’s largest labor coalition. Senators from both parties yukked it up with jokes throughout the hour-long affair.

After the conference ended, Norquist predicted the Gang of Eight would succeed, arguing that opponents like Sessions and Vitter, who sunk the last immigration bill in 2007, have been marginalized.

Restrictionists, Norquist said, are people who merely “think of themselves as conservatives.”

The guys were, in fact, IMMIGRANTS ~ why shouldn't they be blamed for doing what they did?

I think, though, the writer meant ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ~ no Mexicans in this mess so far ~ but who knows.

OHAHA AND THE DEMS ARE SUCKING-UP TO TERROR BIGTIME (undermining US laws left and right): No one is safe w/ this terror-sucking freak and his Chi/mob crew occupying our WH. Ohaha is using US govt authority and tax dollars for "immigration reform"---to welcome terrorists who have SAID LOUD AND CLEAR that they want to kill AMERICANS.

<><> US govt orders delay in Capitol Hill intern's arrest (Peruvian pedophile) to help Sen Menendez get elected

<><> Encouraging escalation of Mexican govt meddling in US affairs---signs petition in favor of US gun control..

<><> Latino rights protesters demand Obama end Sheriff Stanek’s deportations

<><> Casa de Maryland latinos fuming about "Difficulty in obtaining bond,"

<><> US govt scraps ICE 287(g) Program That Allowed Local Police to Enforce Immigration Law

<><> Obama's policies protect sanctuary city illegals by not cooperating with federal immigration officials

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

BOSTONIANS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BLOOD-CURDLING "LA RAZA STUDIES"---ACTUALLY TAUGHT IN ARIZONA SCHOOLS: 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 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.

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

Kerry presented his "credentials" to Obama when the Secy of State job became available.

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

mmigrants are blamed for enough in society; they need not be blamed for this tragedy....So, I need to blame my 86 year old neighbor lady? I absolutely hate this Immigration REFORM crap. To reform something, you need to change it’s basic premise. How did these pukes receive citizenship in the first place, when he was designated a terrorist on a watchlist? How did he reenter the country after being on a watchlist? How comes my friend from Germany has waited 14 years to become a citizen when he has paid all the fees, background checks, etc., etc and gets no answers from INS? Reform means DO WHAT THE SYSTEM WAS INTENDED TO DO and DO IT CORRECTLY.

“Anyone know how many Muslims [like Boston] are legal immigrants?”

Hard to keep track of, WAY too many, and half will overstay but there are 100,000 Saudi students here on visas. Those visas are issued in Saudi Arabia, by Saudi Arabia....like ALL those 9/11 hijackers.

Saudi student convicted of terrorism in Texas
http://www.examiner.com/article/saudi-student-convicted-of-terrorism-texas

[snip]Last year, Saudi applications for visas to the United States more than quadrupled from 25,000 in 2010 to 110,000 in 2011. Even worse is the fact that a whopping 93%–or 102,300– of these applications were approved, 75% of them–nearly 77,000–within a week (!) of the application.

“No shame” they cry, after waving the bloody shirt of Sandy Hook over the entire nation just days after children were murdered by a psychopath for whom existing laws played no part in his crime. Shamelessly waving the bloody shirt in order to push through a long-standing agenda of more infringement of the Second Amendment against those who do abide by constitutional law.

Ruben Navarrette is an ethnic bigot. If 90% of illegals were from Scandinavia instead of Mexico and Central America he’d be demanding arrests and deportations. But since 90% of illegals are hispanic ol’ Ruben champions rewards for illegals instead of punishment.

Don’t you understand, if we can save one American chil’ we must ban something ~ this time its immigrants. Before it was guns. NOBODY wants to ban pressure cookers. The peeps in Denver would have nothing to eat otherwise! They’re gettin’ the munchies bad out there.
