Biden: Amnesty for 11 Million Illegals ‘Granting Them the Dignity & Respect They Deserve’
CNS News ^ | May 9, 2013 | Penny Starr

Posted on 05/09/2013 10:56:25 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that passing an immigration reform law that would give the estimated 11 million people in the country illegally a pathway to citizenship would be “granting them the dignity and respect they deserve.”

Speaking at the Conference on the Americas on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., Biden told attendees from countries throughout the Western Hemisphere that every nation has to make “tough choices.”

“In the United States, it means reforming our immigration system and 11 million undocumented men, women and children being able to come out of the shadows and be full participants in American life,” Biden said. “Imagine that - the dignity.

“My father would say, ‘it’s all about dignity,” Biden said. “Granting them the dignity and respect they deserve.”

Biden said not doing so would be disrespectful to the people living throughout the Americas....

Based on that logic, setting bank robbers, burglars, forgers and muggers free with the money they stole would be "granting them the dignity and respect they deserve" wouldn't it?

Biden and others imagine these people to be UNDOCUMENTED like they were some kind of stateless refugees.

Actually, they are ALL documented and have citizenship somewhere.

After tens of billions of US taxpayer dollars and decades of work it's almost impossible to become an undocumented stateless person in this world.

One exception can be added to the Gang of 8 law ~ to wit, any person with citizenship in a currently existing nation, state, country, or subdivision thereof, is disqualified from invoking each and every section of this law.

Now if they knew there was a chance of them being shot sneaking in I suppose one could say they got what they deserved if they didn’t quite make it.

However committing crimes against this country’s citizens does NOT mean they deserve to then screw the citizens out of monies set aside for social programs for AMERICAN CITIZENS.

I am done having sympathy for those that willfully ignore this Nation’s laws regarding immigration. Either adhear to them or GTFO! No where at ANY time did I grant anyone that is not a American Citizen a right to live off MY Tax dollar.

This is a uniquely Democrat/Liberal disease, believing that criminals are somehow due the same "respect and dignity" that they have themsleves chosen to turn their backs on by electing to become criminals.

There is no dignity, or honor, or respect in being a criminal. And those who pretend that there is or should be are just enablers who encourage criminal behavior in others. They are no different from the criminal element they engender with their ignorant pandering.

We as a society cannot afford to draw any distinction between the criminal aliens who are destroyng what was once our uniquely American society and those who give them aid or succor.

They all must be done away with for America to return to her legacy greatness and manifest destiny.

"granting them the dignity and respect they deserve..."

Just what did they do to earn that "dignity and respect"? I mean - besides breaking our laws?

Or is Biden implying that, just by being inhabitants of Latin America, they deserve U.S. citizenship?

They want Mexicans voting for Democrats more than anything. This is beyond a typical Obama power play, it’s a broad axe stroke directed squarely at the GOP’s neck. Boehner was right, Obama Is trying To “Annihilate The Republican Party”. The GOP needs to change the narrative and quick but with the media controlled by the democrats, that’s easier said than done.

11 million illegals and their 20 million relatives who will join them and the flood of poor South and Central Americans who are already packing their bags and scraping up the coyote fare to go north where they have been told the government will shower wealth upon them in the form of free food and medical care and housing and obamaphones. Amnesty at this point is essentially granting citizenship to the world’s poor people which may well rapidly convert the USofA into a third world hellhole from which people will be trying to get out to where there is something left to eat.

This is a workup I developed with data found here.  http://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/surveymost?ce

At that page I selected total private employment and government employment, and ran the numbers.  Once inside the report, I expanded it out to a report from 1939 to the present.

I wanted to get fairly traditional reasoned growth numbers, so starting in 1965 when the figures seemed rather settled, I used those figures until the present time to come up with the information supplied above.

From 1961 through 1964, a rather normal work environment as it relates to job growth took form.  Using figures from the jobs report starting in January of 1953 and continuing on every four years conciding with each new or continuing administration, I developed this report that reveals the jobs created each four years.

What prompted this study, was recent media reports that the economy has really turned around.  I like many of you have been asking, "Well yes, but as compared to what?"  Are we merely talking about the stopped hemeraging, or are we talking about returning to a robust economy that is now nearly healed.

On the right I chose to provide a little gauge of where we really stand comparted to what we should traditionally be able to expect as it relates to jobs in our nation.

I took a fairly level ten four year terms of jobs increases from 1965 to 2001.  I then calculated the total growth over the ten periods, and developed a reasoned average we have come to expect on a normal basis.

Then on the right I plugged in that average growth, and from 1965 on, I calculated what we should expect when it comes to jobs held in the United States.

The figures I came up with are not exact, because they don't fluctuate.  None the less, they hold pretty darned close through 2001.  At that point they are about 734,000 jobs off.  Still that's a fairly accurate model to have held up over 40 years, the four year job growth projection from 1961 through 2001.  It's off by only 0.55%.  The prior four year mark in 1997 is only 0.25 - 0.35% off.

For that reason, I think it's a fairly accurate indicator of where our jobs should be today.  How many U. S. Citizens should be employed today?

If you take a look at the figure on the left our government says are employed today, and compare it to what traditional job growth projects say we should have employed, you'll note we're coming up 40 million jobs short.

To put that in perspective, we are employing 77.013% of the people we should be today.  22.987% of our citizens who should have jobs don't.  That's nearly one in four people.  And when you consider how many of our citizens are under-employed, it's a national disgrace.  I wouldn't be shocked at all to learn half our potential workforce is either unemployed or under-employed.  As Yakov Smirnov used to say, "America!  What a country..."

Moving jobs off-shore, allowing citizens of other nations to come here and take jobs when so many U. S. Citizens are unemployed, to have the highest Corporate tax rates in the world, to actually give tax advantages to corporations that employ people off-shore... our leaders have really worked their magic.

So no, in answer to our reasoned questions, Barack Obama and the Leftist swill have not returned our economy to a healthy status.  And no, our Republican cohorts haven't lifted so much as one finger to change that.

And that's the way it is, May 09th, 2013.

Yes, the numbers keep changing.... Aside from Old Joes’ stupid remark, (don`t think it will pass anyway, shouldn’t) Only give 11 million slots for amnesty, and see how they start howling about that!! It’s been 11 million for 10 years, right? NO AMNESTY! NO CITIZENSHIP! GO HOME!!! Mexicans are only proud of their country when they are NOT IN MEXICO!!! COWARDS AND TRAITORS.
