Posted on 04/30/2013 6:31:55 AM PDT by Hojczyk
The immigration bill introduced to the Senate a week and a half ago would, if passed, allow illegal immigrants to access state and local welfare benefits immediately, Breitbart News has learned. The financial impact of allowing potentially millions of immigrants onto state and local public assistance could overwhelm these programs' budgets.
The Gang of Eight made a promise that illegal immigrants will not be able to access public benefits, Sessions said in a statement to Breitbart News. We already know that, once granted green cards and ultimately citizenship, illegal immigrants will be able to access all public benefit programs at a great cost to taxpayers. We have, however, identified a number of loopholes that would allow illegal immigrants to draw public benefits even sooner than advertised.
According to page 91 of the bill, all illegal immigrants granted legalized RPI status would legally be considered lawfully present. That section reads as follows: (4) TREATMENT OF REGISTERED PROVISIONAL IMMIGRANTS.A noncitizen granted registered provisional immigrant status under this section shall be considered lawfully present in the United States for all purposes while such noncitizen remains in such status, except that the noncitizen (A) is not entitled to the premium assistance tax credit authorized under section 36B of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986; (B) shall be subject to the rules applicable to individuals not lawfully present that are set forth in subsection (e) of such section; and (C) shall be subject to the rules applicable to individuals not lawfully present that are set forth in section 1402(e) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (42 U.S.C. 18071).

GOP Senators. Do you understand the meaning of ‘Hell No’?!
Marco and Juan and Linseed obviously can’t read. Or was this law written in Spanish?
Regardless of what it says, I thought the Supreme Court ruled before that no one in the US cannot be denied a benefit as long as their status was legal.
Our forefathers would be shooting by now.
No, not Spanish. It was written in Gobble-T-Gook.
They don't care! Marco & Juan just want to pass amnesty irregardless!!! Consequences be damned!!!
This gets my blood boiling.
We need to have a law mandating an affidavit be attached to each and every law between Congress, the Senate, and up to the President’s desk that states that the law was drafted by a law maker and ONLY by a law maker, was read completely and understood by the law maker submitting the bill, is Constitutional by provisions outlined therein, and applies to every American, including the law makers themselves.
This BS with outside entities and legal groups drafting laws, handing them to Representatives and Senators to bring up on the floor without knowing whats in them is complete tyranny. We did not elect these shadow law groups, we elected our Representatives and Senators. This is complete and total failure of the American system of Republicanism.
Austrian or Ebonics.

Can someone explain to me how the “Gang of Ocho” is not guilty of treason? Seriously.
Doing what anchor babies do now, start the welfare bennies train in motion.
Like illegals don’t sign up now.
Go to this website and oppose all immigration “reform” bills. They are all DemonRAT voter roll enhancement bills.
If you don’t have an account, create one. Pleas register and let your congressional delegation know your thoughts.
Here are some of mine ...
Secure the borders FIRST!
Just a standalone bill authorizing the states to use their National Guard to patrol their own borders, with provisions to keep the FedGov (i.e. Eric Holder and his transnationalists) on a short leash when States assert their sovereignty in border regions.
NEXT: A bill that guarantees that only CITIZENS can vote. Birth Certificate, Naturalization Papers, or US Passport ONLY, plus proof of residency in the precinct.
Do those FIRST, then we can talk immigration.
No more anchor babies.
One baby born here, and the whole extended family moves in.
We’re not as stupid as you think we are.
And, by the way, my parents were immigrants, and we have adopted foreign-born children. All of us came through the FRONT DOOR, paying all fees and submitting all required documentation, and WAITING for the slow wheels of the bureaucracy to turn.
What happened to the days when immigrants had to prove they had a job waiting and were useful to society?
Well, that what’s they want, after all - think they came here for the “freedom” and “democracy” and all the “potential” to pursue their “destinies”?
No, they came here for all the free stuff, courtesy of the American taxpayer.
Everyone concerned would no doubt be better off if they just stayed home and our government sent them a check every month.
I told you Rubio was FOS claiming those who apply get nothing from the taxpayers for 10 years. I can smell a BS sales pitch amile away. You know Schumer and Durbin would never sign on to what Rubio was claiming.
Not only will they get anti-poverty benefits from the states but they are not required to support their children (to comply and get amnesty ) and so they will also get Federal benefits through them(their kids in US) , like food stamps.
This shows how much we can trust Rubio.
If Rubio was being honest this bill would forbit any government benefits Federal or local, and forbid them from getting SS disability, and they must support all their dependents wo gov help, AND they would be required to meet all the Obama-care mandates, as would their employers, without the subsidies. And if they dont comply then deport
If the Gang of 8 spent as much time and effort figuring out how to secure the border and get rid of the 11 million locusts that are plagueing this country they would be gone already.
I knew this without even reading the bill. Congress can’t even ban these illegals from accessing state and local benefits now.
Well even though having a sponsor, etc. was part of our legal immigration laws it was never enforced on the welfare level. About 25 years ago I worked for our welfare dept. and had switched from being an eligibility worker in food stamps to Medi-Cal (California’s version of Medicaid). I was working I&R (intake and referral) and had a legal immigrant come in who had only been here a couple of years. After he left I asked my supervisor if he was eligible according to the immigration laws. Oh, we don’t enforce that, its not our job she said. So I passed the case on.
Giving illegals preferential treatment over American citizens, attempting to extend American civil rights to non-citizens, failing to protect our borders, not enforcing laws that are on the books in regards to illegal immigration and failing to deport, attempting to marginalize the constitution, turning technology against American citizens, unleashing paramilitary forces against the citizens circumventing posse comitatus.
Yes! This is treason in my book.
It would be amazing if politicians put the interests of American citizens above those of the illegal invaders.
No wonder the rush to pass when the bill is received and less than 24 Hrs to read the bill and pass it. More Obama BS that probably had empty pages so more could be added as it saw the need
It’s not just treason, it is a premeditated plan with a desired end result.
If they become legal courts would no doubt order this anyway.
Divide the country...No other solution. I’m sick and tired of this damn bullshit!
BIG money (facebook, microsoft, ge, unions) with powerful lobbyists behind this amnesty, using conservative named non profits to do it!!!
Don’t be fooled!
To be Clear About Mark Zuckerbergs Americans for a Conservative Direction
Rubio is a 100% fraud.
“How many Americans even know this horrible Amnesty bill is being rushed through Congress? the news media is hiding it like when democrats passed Obamacare on xmas eve . “
It’s time to demand Hannity and Limbaugh and Beck NAME THE NAMES on our side who is pushing this! Levin has started on the right path, the others need to, FAST. We’re almost out of time.

EXCLUSIVE Secret Emails: Cato, Norquist, Rubio Use Boston Terror Attacks to Push Immigration...
Immigration bill sprinkled with pet projects(more Muslims? )
Abdurahman Alamoudi, the Boston bombers, Grover Norquist, and the GOP
Clearly vote-crazed pols are prostrate in obeisance, taking orders from foreign agents cunningly attempting to undermine US ntl security on the pretext of “immigration reform.”
These foreign control agents present a clear and present danger to Americans....and must be stopped.
REFERENCE The America-hating Tsarnaev family collected bigtime----rode the US gravy train using several identites. The Boston bomber brothers' lavish style could not have been financed merely w/ welfare checks, food stamps, housing subsidies, etc etc etc.
A look at dead bomber Tamerlan's reading list on Amazon shows he researched several books WRT forging new identities (each identity pocketing US govt freebies).
TAMERLAN'S READING LIST--PUT THIS IN YOUR BROWSER
Faked/forged identities is a common practice among "impoverished" latinos on US soil....."the just here for a better life types". The "impoverished" invaders pay $$$ thousands for fake identities. The latino Washington state rapist had some 30 identities. Another latino scammed UI for $3/4 million using fake identities.
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. ####
Señator Rubio, your reply?
NY POST EXCERPT April 2013--- 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."
A FREE PASS FOR BEHEADINGS Viscious Mexican drug cartels behead people who try to stop them. The 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 Obomba/Holder are 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.
TAXPAYER ALERT A-n-o-t-h-e-r govt giveaway w/ taxpayers footing the bills. How soon they forget the sub-prime debacle which cost taxpayers zillions. The debacle was facilitated by the hispanic caucus in Congress---Mexican ads heralded "free homes in the US." Read the slimy details below.
SUB-PRIME MORTGAGE SCAMS--MASSIVE MORTGAGE FRAUD ON CAPITOL HILL: The Congressional Hispanic Institute, Inc, is an entity organized by Cong Joe Baca (D-Cali) in his capacity as head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
Cong Baca created "HOGAR" (Spanish for home) in 2003 to work with the mortgage industry, F/M, lenders, banks and latino community groups to increase mortgage lending to what savvy observers consider to be unqualified Latinos.
"HOGAR" colluded w/ Cong Baca in what was to become a massive bilking of taxpayers. Cong Baca calculatedly hyped the fact that the national Latino homeownership rate was 47%, compared with 68% for the overall population.
HOGAR was coached to call the figure "alarming," and to say "a concerted effort was required to ensure that by the end of the decade Latinos will share equally in the American Dream of home ownership."
HOGAR and Cong Baca conned the public, failing to note that most of the "dreamers" were illegals, citizens of Third World countries who had violated US borders.
Predictably, HOGAR colluded w/ co-conspirators which included:
(a) shaky mortgage companies that ran into big trouble;
(b) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both now under federal control after billions in taxpayer bailouts;
(c) Countrywide Financial Corp., sold to Bank of America Corp;
(d) Washington Mutual Inc., taken over by the US government and sold to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.; and,
(e) New Century Financial Corp. and Ameriquest Mortgage Corp, both now defunct, killed by defaulted subprime Latino mortgages.
HOGAR's ties to the subprime mortgage industry were substantial. Bribery and self-dealing were rampant:
<><> Companies that donated $150,000 to Cong Baca got the right to have their own research fellow who would conduct fraudulent studies, which were cunningly used by industry lobbyists to pump lending.
<><> Bribery and extortion in the form of $100,000 annual donations to Cong Baca, for which HOGAR provided phony news releases from Cong Baca's Hispanic Caucus promoting a lender's commercial products to the Latino market,
<><> The most shocking example of bribery well-substantitated by Hogar's literature..... HOGAR announced it worked with Freddie Mac on a self-serving two-year examination of Latino homeownership in 63 congressional districts.
The "study" found Hispanic ownership on the rise thanks to "new flexible mortgage loan products" that the industry was adopting at the urging of Cong Baca's collusive coterie.
<><> HOGAR conned lenders into even more lenient down-payment and underwriting standards.
<><> As the subprime debacle unfolded, HOGAR declined repeated requests for comment despite the economic havoc their activities precipitated.
The mortgage schemes demonstrated the criminal activities of border violators with multiple identities---perhaps violent, terrorist-connected foreigners---colluding and conspiring to defraud private companies and public entities. And mortgage racketeering enterprises which employed sub rosa finance and business practices to carry out deceptions and frauds.
The alleged ring of swindlers---a Congresman, individuals with multiple identities, banks, insurance companies, mortgage brokers--might be charged with cheating the US govt, taxpayers and bank share holders out of hundreds of millions of dollars via an elaborate web of mortgage and bank frauds.
The mortgage Dreamers used multiple phony identities, fraudulent Social Security numbers, purchased from identity forgers in order to obtain govt-subsidized benefits.
L/E will find that individuals with multiple identities obtained fraudulent mortgages then flipped the houses at ever-higher prices to family member who then absconded to foreign countries, sticking banks (and taxpayers) with hundreds of millions in fraudulent mortgages.
BACKGROUND A Wall Street Journal investigative report related that, according to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council examination of the borrowing spree, uncovered financial schemes by low-income housing groups, Hispanic lawmakers, a congressional Hispanic housing initiative, mortgage lenders and brokers, all colluding in fraduent schemes to increase homeownership among Latinos with forged documents which enabled massive fraud.
This was not simply the mortgage market at work. It was fueled by avarice, greed, and Congressional enabling fraudulent practices. In 2005 alone, mortgages to Hispanics jumped by 29%; Latinos with multiple fraudulent identities in low-paying jobs obtained subprime mortgages for prime properties---soaring to 169%.

Jeff Sessions for President
The news is much worse in Washington state.
ILLEGAL immigrants are already eligible for federal welfare.
Here, you can qualify for Food Stamps and Medicaid without showing any documentation that verifies you are legally in the country.
