Senate Immigration Bill Passes Out Of Judiciary Committee (Crowd yells "Si Se Puede")
HuffingtonPost ^

Posted on 05/21/2013 9:22:13 PM PDT by fifedom

All Democrats on the committee, along with Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and gang of eight Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), voted in favor of the bill, which will now go to the Senate floor.

The crowd in the room erupted into applause when the final vote tally was read, rising to their feet and chanting "Yes we can!" then "Si se puede!"

The fix is in. This is going to pass the Senate.

Now our only hope is for Boner not to bring it up for a vote in the House since a majority of Republicans oppose it.

Fat chance.

All you can do is laugh to keep from crying. Like Dandy Don used to sing on Monday Night Football. "Put out the lights, the party's over."

If this passes, it's over. For the U.S. of A.

This isn’t exactly the proper climate to pass a damned thing of the Democrats.

Hm, at what point can the States declare the Federal Government to be treasonous (all they have to do is show the FedGov is a: waging war on the States, or b: giving aid and comfort to enemies of the States).

That was always the plan. The Senate Republicans in the Senate are too stupid to see the writing on the wall. The Senate passes the Bill, the House blocks it. Then Republicans are blamed as it was killed by the Pubbies in the House. Bingo-all sorts of new Dem voters.

If this damn thing passes it will be the death of what remains of our economy and our country.

This makes me so angry and then they don’t even have the brains to learn the words in English. Just one of many things that upset me about the illegals that come here now vs. the ones from 40 or 30 years ago.

I thought GOOBers in the 8 Gangbangers were going to force the illegals to speak English in exchange for welfare and other freebies. It looks like the Republicans are lying to us now. Hey! It works for the DemocRATS, the GOOBers might as well give it a try.

I voted against McCain, because he was no different than a Democrat. I voted for Flake, but I feel dirty. The democrat would have been no better, but I’m not sure he would have been worse than “I want to grow up and be John McCain” Flake.

What does one do when no one in the GOP gives a rat’s rear about anything one holds dear? Who do you vote for, when everyone on the ballot is a lying traitor?

He is a traitor and he knows it! As do they all. The people of America have been sold out.

They’ll keep sellin’ their lies and many will buy into it until this country resembles the worst of 20th century USSR.

Read Solzenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago because this tale will will told again. However, the racial dynamic against whites will make the American experience even more hideous and pathetic.

I don’t like it either but what is your suggestion for a REAL alternative? Obama has literally declared that they are not deporting anyone short of a murderer. They already milk the system for welfare. They use services but pay no taxes.

We need to live in the real world. No President in memory has ever dealt with the problem so we are where we are. Conservatives are completely and totally f’ing useless in terms of fighting these social fights. Gay marriage, pot, and now immigration. One domino after another has fallen because we SUCK at politics. Sorry but we should take the best deal we can get.

I’d disagree — there were a lot of things the fedgov did to push around the southern States and make them want to leave, but the refusal to abandon Fort Sumter to the State meant that the FedGov could say “but he started it” (and indeed, that is what many Lincoln Apologists claim)... this, however, is categorically different:
In this case we have the federal government aiding and abetting an invasion, the States could declare such a state of invasion specifically naming the illegal immigrants as the actors thereof, and the FedGov would be aiding these enemies by it’s non-enforcement of laws... and the Amnesty would be an overt action,rather than overt inaction.

It may indeed be time; but I think having a good deal of congressmen, administrators/bureaucrats, and executive-agency heads doing rope-dances could stave off that need. {The problem there is ensuring the punishment is contained to the perpetrators; we do not want an French-revolution Terror where families, friends associates, and anyone alleged to be is also punished.}

Since I know the GOP won't do it, Tea Party groups need to be ready to start running those commercials, showing the faces of the Boston marathon terrorists, and reminding the people of just what happens with ‘pathways to citizenship.’

On September 11th, 2012, Tsarnaev was granted citizenship after coming to this country as a refugee. A few months before, his mother was caught shoplifting, and his older brother was over visiting the same countries that the ‘refugees’ were supposedly fleeing, on vacation, if not on a learning expedition to facilitate their attack on Americans. On April 15th, Patriot Day in Boston, the two walked through crowds of families cheering on runners, paused, placed two explosives on the ground, one next to an 8 year old child, and walked away, before setting off two bombs.

America - we don't reward liars and line cutters.

Perhaps it is. A government that allows us to be infiltrated by millions of foreigners against our will(Without the vote of Americans), committing crime and competing with us for jobs and welfare programs, is one that is traitorous and unlawful.

So if it does pass, no WHEN it does, cause it seems like we are on an out of control downward spiral, what are we going to do about it? Sit here and rant until we all end up with stroke? We shouldn’t have even let it get this far. They have their marches (The arrogance @#$) why weren’t Conservatives out there counter-marching? Why can’t we all get it together? Join your local tea-parties people and organize to get our voices heard. The time is NOW.

I think the fix is in and has been for decades. I don’t think shy of revolution there is any hope - and the will isn’t there for Judeo-Christian western society to exist apart from our new one world dystopian reality.

Any real fight outta the people or any serious threat from representatives in authority would be put down in the harshest of measures. A revolution - just try it - playin’ into a well thought out scenario. There is a plan A, B or C or D and anyway it goes we are headed from a slippery slope to a vertical fall in the not to distant future.

Yeah, it wasn’t for having a firm faith in God and His Son and His providence I’d be beyond exasperation.

Reality - all this countries problems could be fixed but not one of them will be. The only problem like a stick in the spokes of a wheel are the Christians and Jews and conservative people of faith that will be dealt with in the future.

The house should pass a plan, but do their own. No amnesty. Do the border control, business enforcement, government reform, and worker visas. I am not sure where this concept was born that the House must rubber stamp senate bills. The House is majority run, and controls the legislative agenda.
