John McCain & Lindsey Graham Want You to Know Boston Bombings Wont Slow Immigration Reform
Yahoo News ^ | April 20, 2013 | Becket Adams

John McCain & Lindsey Graham Want You to Know Boston Bombings Won’t Slow Immigration Reform By Becket Adams | Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Friday released a statement saying that despite the week's events with the Boston Marathon bombing, it won't deter or slow their efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

Here's their statement, released before the capture of 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev:

In the wake of this week's terrorist attack in Boston, some have already suggested that the circumstances of this terrible tragedy are justification for delaying or stopping entirely the effort for comprehensive immigration reform.

In fact the opposite is true: Immigration reform will strengthen our nation's security by helping us identify exactly who has entered our country and who has left - a basic function of government that our broken immigration system is incapable of accomplishing today. The status quo is unacceptable.

We have 11 million people living in the shadows, which leaves this nation vulnerable to a myriad of threats. That is all the more reason why comprehensive immigration reform is so essential.

I wish I was still naive enough to be surprised by this sort of thing. Using their own logic, I guess they can’t wait to let in more “enemy combatants”, in spades, even. Brilliant!

BORDER BATTLELINES

Open immigration invites terrorism, again

Exclusive: Tom Tancredo says U.S. system ‘should afford protection against jihadists’
Published: 22 hours ago

Tom Tancredo is the founder of the Rocky Mountain Foundation and founder and co-chairman of Team America PAC. He is also a former five-term congressman and presidential candidate. Tancredo is the author of “In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security.”

Surprise! Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York and other guardians of political correctness have declared a taboo against linking the two jihadist Muslim terrorists in Boston to our failed immigration policies.

Two young Muslim immigrants have been identified as the culprits behind the Boston Marathon slaughter. Using homemade “backpack” bombs constructed on the models in al-Qaida training manuals, they killed three people, maimed a dozen others and injured over 170. Yet, our nation’s lawmakers are not supposed to worry about how the immigration system allows legal entry to thousands of individuals from territories infested with jihadist training camps?

Sen. Schumer has reasons to be worried. His 844-page amnesty bill is in enough trouble already without these uninvited guests crashing the Schumer-Rubio Happy Hour.

Americans not infected by the common disease Potomac Myopia can connect the dots. Ordinary folk assume that a successful immigration system should afford protection against jihadists, not a welcome mat. When citizens say they want our broken immigration system fixed, they think that means securing our borders, real enforcement of immigration laws and better screening against jihadists gaining legal status by way of a green card.

The political reaction to the horrific news out of Boston should serve to alert Americans to this unpleasant fact: Sens. Schumer, Rubio and other members of the “Gang of Eight” have different priorities. Most citizens will be shocked to find out that the bill this “Gang” introduced this past week, S.744, actually makes it easier, not more difficult, to enter the United States illegally and then obtain legal status and citizenship.

If comprehensive immigration reform means getting the illegals out that are here, preventing anymore from coming in and halting the islamofilth infiltration, then I’m all for it.

Obama's take on the bombings: "Just relax Americans, kickback, and enjoy it as the terrorists come to kill you."

THE BORDER-CROSSERS SAY OVER AND OVER THY WANT TO KILL US---BLOOD-CURDLING "LA RAZA STUDIES"---ACTUALLY TAUGHT IN ARIZONA SCHOOLS FOE TEN YEARS : 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.

I have yet to see a single politician who understands that immigration policy should first and foremost serve the interests of citizens.

And that the people allowed to come here should be people who want to be us, and that they should be brought in numbers that can be easily assimilated. More people could theoretically be allowed in from countries that will easily assimilate, while others who are harder to assimilate you obviously allow fewer if any at all.

You should never allow immigration from any one country in numbers large enough that they establish colonies that do not assimilate. And your immigration policy should actively filter out people who do not want to assimilate.

That is all the more reason why comprehensive immigration reform is so essential.

As everybody knows, if a bill has a title with the word "comprehensive" in it, that's a clear tipoff that the bill contains loads of pork and crap provisions that would NEVER pass on their own merit as stand-alone measures. McCain and Graham can take their "comprehensive" pile of crap and shove it where the sun don't shine.

Graham is getting pounded in SC for his bonehead immigration stand. His approval in SC is dropping like a rock. He was at 71% approval, and it’s plummeted to 54%.

He is vulnerable to a primary challenge.

At WHAT POINT did the Federal Government assume the RIGHT to overrule the sentiments of the majority of its citizens on an issue as important as this one??

It will be slowed and stopped. One way or the other. If they keep letting more Muslims come here, the odds say we will have more terrorists here. And future immigrants will view this country as being too unsafe to live within. The brain dead Oligarchy knows this, but they will be retiring in Malta with their briefcases full of money.

The Big Lie is that the bulk of border-crossers are Mexican----BUT we know Mexico is the staging area for all of the Third World freeloaders---that includes global terrorists bent on destroying America.

Terrorists from Mideast countries are entering the US from Mexico......their swarthiness gives them a pass to masquerade as Mexican illegals

The Mexican border has become the staging area for (1) global terrorists (swarthy Mideasterners who pass for Mexicans), (2) the criminal latino uderworld, (3) Third World lowlifes, (4) drug cartels, (5) impoverished latinos hoping to win the "border lottery" in the US and the like.

And US politicans are looking the other way. The word is out---"come to Mexico to infiltrate the US. It's open season to conduct your dirty deeds."

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

As FReeper sick of libs insightfully posted: Rubio's new reform pkg "says" there'll be at least a 10 year wait BUT the wait for US citizenship will be s-o-o-o long that illegals who apply will wish they had NEVER left their comfy Third World homelands.

SUMMING UP Rubio's plan will make them sorry they came here. Plus they will get zero benefits for those l-o-n-g 10-15 years. Plus Schumer and Durbin and Obama agree with all this.....b/c Rubio is such a tough negotiator, he has them eating out of his hand.....(alarm bells ringing)...

=============================================== CONCLUSION-- (Sniffle) AT ALL TIMES, the Gang of Eight was guided by sacrosanct founding principles----government of the people, by the people, and for the people (sob)...... The "people"---that's us.

Mexican drug cartels swarming into the US (read below) already have financial arrangements with Hamas and Hezbollah, and will be empowered to expand those partnerships via The Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill. It’s a small step from blanketing America w/ marijuana and heroin to aiding and abetting Hezbollah operatives. To these hardened criminal, the profit motive rules, no matter the source.

NY POST EXCERPT--- Mexican cartels dispatch agents deep inside US - spread into non-border states

CHICAGO (AP) — Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the US border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States — an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most lucrative narcotics market and maximize profits. If left unchecked, authorities say, the cartels' move into the American interior could render the syndicates harder than ever to dislodge and pave the way for them to expand into other criminal enterprises such as prostitution, kidnapping-and-extortion rackets and money laundering.

Some cartels even have Mexican operatives fill out job applications before being dispatched to the US, Riley added.

In Mexico, the cartels are known for a staggering number of killings — more than 50,000, according to one tally. Beheadings are sometimes a signature. So far, cartels don't appear to be directly responsible for large numbers of slayings in the United States, though the Texas Department of Public Safety reported 22 killings and five kidnappings in Texas at the hands of Mexican cartels from 2010 through mid- 2011. Still, police worry that increased cartel activity could fuel heightened violence.--SNIP--

In Chicago, the police commander who oversees narcotics investigations, James O'Grady, said street-gang disputes over turf account for most of the city's uptick in murders last year, when slayings topped 500 for the first time since 2008.

Although the cartels aren't dictating the territorial wars, they are the source of drugs. Riley's assessment is stark: He argues that the cartels should be seen as an underlying cause of Chicago's disturbingly high murder rate. "They are the puppeteers," he said. "Maybe the shooter didn't know and maybe the victim didn't know that. But if you follow it down the line, the cartels are ultimately responsible."

They plan on increasing visas...a lot! As well as bringing back people they deported. And other equally offensive measures, like funds for aliens to hire lawyers, etc, etc.

"I wonder how much BIG labor and BIG business are paying these two pixies to shove this crap down our throats."

Millions and millions. I was recently looking at the figures for Microsoft, who Grover Norquist Lobbies for. Cpac's Suhail Khan is director of external affairs.

[snip]Microsoft - TOP ISSUES LOBBIED, 2012

1. Taxes - HINT: Norquist & ATR aren't lobbying for higher taxes for Bill Gates!

2. Immigration

3. Telecommunications

4. Computers & Information Tech

5. Copyright, Patent & Trademark

Do you know who his biggest lobbyists are.....The K St. goons who facilitate his liberal agenda? That might surprise you.

[SNIP]”Yesterday, Grover Norquist’s weekly Americans for Tax Reform conclave was the venue for an announcement by Suhail Khan that he was becoming director for external affairs for Microsoft.

Khan’s transformation into a corporate lobbyist comes amidst rising concerns in conservative circles about his longstanding family and personal ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB or Ikhwan) in America and his positions in favor of such MB priorities as building the Ground Zero mosque, closing Guantanamo Bay.... dissembling about shariah, etc. “

THAT would be the same radical Islam apologist Suhail Khan, CPAC organizer & board member AND Grover Norquist, CPAC organizer , founder of the Islamic Institute & Microsoft lobbyist, friend of the American Conservative Union...who happens to also be for AMNESTY.

An article explains how the Norquist scam works:

Take General Electric, which faced withering, bipartisan criticism last year when it was revealed that the company, thanks to a myriad of tax credits and other tax subsidies, had paid no federal income taxes in 2010. Norquist was there to defend the company in a chat with The Washington Post, arguing absurdly that removing billions in tax rebates to GE would just be a tax on consumers. Cutting GE’s tax credits, after all, would break the Norquist pledge.

In a recently posted 2011 giving report, General Electric says it made a contribution of $50,000 to Norquist’s foundation that year.

Consider that—GE gave more to Norquist in 2011 than it paid the IRS for income taxes in 2010, a year the corporation made $14.2 billion in profits.

Then he sends out volumes of fund raisers for ATR and his various other conservative sounding 'non profits' to loyal conservatives so they can send their money to him to facilitate the likes of GE and Microsoft! And IT'S all legal! Lying and using US citizens to bring about amnesty to profit our enemies is just another day at the office for Norquist and Khan.

Bottom line? Conservatives, you are paying for your own demise while Grover & Khan are raking in your hard earned money at CPAC and the ACU! They don't care about poor aliens, and they don't care about YOU!

Why is it that these guys [McCain, Graham, Rubio, et al] spend more time ‘representing’ illegals than they do representing their constituents?

Best guess comes from a Judge Judy quote: “Follow the money.”

Maybe opponents need to be checking into these guys’ offshore bank accounts.

Idiots! Please South Carolina get rid of this turd!!! PLEASE!!!
******************************************************************
Our South Carolina brothers and sisters will need some (financial) help from us out-of-staters. You can bet your boots that Little Lindsey has a massive war chest—much of it funded by out of state lobbyists and interests.

So, when the time is right, please provide financial support (give til it hurts—or your spouse complains) to Lindsey’s 2014 primary opponent(s).

Let’s give this little weasel a retirement to a bathhouse of his choice.

We have 11 million people living in the shadows, which leaves this nation vulnerable to a myriad of threats.

What does that mean?

Most of the criminal aliens I know of are anything but in the shadows. They are out, working for cash, using the ER for their health insurance, driving without a license or auto insurance, having a ball.

Immigration reform will strengthen our nation's security

They must think we're stupid. Clearly they're the real fools.

I’m hoping us SC voters can team up and put Linda Gayham out of office next year. We need to get started right away. Gayham has over $5 million to buy the election.

We have 11 million people living in the shadows, which leaves this nation vulnerable to a myriad of threats. That is all the more reason why comprehensive immigration reform is so essential.

Both of the bombers were here legally, fully out of the shadows. Once was a naturalized citizen. So I guess we know how immigration strengthen our nation's security.
