"Attorney general promises government working to protect illegal aliens"
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, in remarks that largely have escaped notice, has claimed that creating a mechanism for [illegal aliens] to earn citizenship and move out of the shadows is a matter of civil and human rights.
Holder also said that the federal government will work hard to safeguard the rights of language minorities.
These claims are likely to add fuel to the growing controversy over the Senate amnesty proposal developed by the so-called Gang of Eight.
Holder made these remarks in an April 24 speech to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund Awards Gala. MALDEFs notable activity includes suing Sheriff Joe Arpaio and opposing Arizonas immigration law.
Holder said, [I]t is long past time to reform our immigration system in a way that is fair; that guarantees that all are playing by the same rules
However, one of the primary criticisms of amnesty is that it does not treat all immigrants according to the same rules. Instead, according to critics, amnesty would reward illegal aliens by allowing them to bypass established procedures required for legal entry.
Holder framed the amnesty proposal in........

Amnesty is a civil right? Does the IRS know this?
Except for Christians trying to escape persecution for home-schooling their children.
THIS from the man the burned American children ALIVE
when thereafter he devoted the DO”J” to defending
terrorists (killing Americans) from American justice.
Holder belongs in prison, as do his defenders in Congress
for misprision of felony.
“Amnesty is a civil right”
No it is not, just like a drivers licenses, it is a privilege not a right and you can loss privileges
this Amnesty bill is horrendous.
1. it gives illegals amnesty
2. allows the new Amnestied citizens to bring in their families back home from Mexico and other hell holes(100 million new 3rd world immigrants
3. it creates a new visa
4. it is over 800 pages and growing ( have the American people read it no because the media is hiding what they are doing )
5. creates new gov bureaucracies
they want to finish off America. this all started with the 1965 kennedy immigration bill (after that 80% of the legal immigrants came from the 3rd world . no country allows this level of immigration from the world's sewers. democrats destroyed the greatest society by importing maggots. these legal immigrants provided a home base for illegals, communities etc. repeal the 1965 immigration bill
This man won’t enforce federal law. He needs to go.
Such huffing & puffing. He can say whatever he wants but can he convince a court? I think not...
Killed off? Without question
Slowly? More like at a record pace.
The whole purpose for amnesty is to register 30 million new democrat voters.
That would be the end of our representative republic.
Think we aren’t represented now?
It would solidify democrat rule and effectively eliminate any opposition.
That is their goal.
I’m thoroughly convinced that his whole administration is made up of the dumbest humans ever to walk the face of the earth. How can they say the crap they do with a straight face?
Holder is so full of it. Where’s the House UnAmerican Activities Committee?
Mexican drug lords are partners in financial arrangements with Hamas and Hezbollah terorists. The savage terroristss will be empowered to expand those partnerships via The Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill, and Holder is aiding and abetting the terrorist schemes.
Its a small step from blanketing America w/ marijuana and heroin to aiding and abetting Hezbollah terrorist operations. 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.
In Mexico, the cartels are known for a staggering number of killings more than 50,000, according to one tally. Beheadings are 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, narco/cop Commander 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."
I don't think it's their choice but most younger folks have the rest of their lives to live and i suspect that accepting an appointed job under Obama is something that will ruin your credit rating, and ultimately your public reputation, for the rest of your life.
Once these 30 new democrat voters have Amnesty they can also bring in their families from the 3rd world. that's all we need more 3rd world vermin , a 100 million more locusts
the whole purpose of the 1965 immigration act was to import democrats. California used to be a conservative state as they elected Reagan as their governor. import several million Mexicans into california and viola california is now a sick liberal socialist hell hole. they are doing this to all of the U.S.
Those are fighting words but there are no patriots in Congress.
A look at Tamerlan's reading list on Amazon shows he researched forging phony identities---a practice very common in the latino community.

NJ BERGEN RECORD CIRCA 2004---Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity (many latinos establish multiple identities in order to ride the US gravy train).
The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses----for any state in the US------ passports and resident alien cards, said NJ state police.
The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot.
The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. After a search, police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.
All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street when sold to "impoverished illegals." Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 phony Social Security cards. ####
The Third World knows massive financial benefits would derive from "immigration reform"......Third world pressure groups exchanging votes for foreign aid---zillions of us tax dollars going straight into the pockets of corrupt third world federales.
Several year ago, a TV report concerned a US Post Office somewhere near the Mexican border that was used by illegals to send money home. It was so busy the US Govt. put in several trailers to handle the business.
IMPOVERISHED THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES LYING IN WAIT---W/ PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally sending billions back home): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside), Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.
absolutely, it is a privilege....entry is a privilege too. In those regards, when one says something it is not, like a right, sounds to me like a high crime.
