Immigration Bill Swells to Over One Thousand Pages
Breitbart News ^ | 28 May 2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 05/28/2013 5:53:45 PM PDT by george76

The Senate Judiciary Committee has increased the already-sizable length of the “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill to more than a thousand pages during the markup process

...

The first version of the bill that was filed by the eight senators--Marco Rubio (R-FL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), John McCain (R-AZ), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Bob Menendez (D-NJ)--totaled 844 pages. An updated version, filed just before the bill went to the committee markup, stretched 867 pages in length.

The new bill towers over previous versions in length, clocking in at 1,076 pages. It was introduced on Tuesday afternoon

I guess we will have to pass it so we can find out what’s in it.

The quality is in inverse proportion to the size of the bill.
STOP!

When they nicknamed it the Gang of Eight, they probably thought they were being cute.

The trouble is, they really are a bunch of gangsters. Typical of today’s Senate.

What a mess.

Now we have to see if the Gimmie-crats can get “their” Republicans lined up to support this monstrosity. If it dies in the Senate, they loose big.

All of this because we have a Congress that tolerates and budgets for its enacted legislation to not be enforced and does that for decades. What a bunch of destructive piglets at the sow.

1000 Pages?

1000 Pages mean BIG GOVERNMENT. How much welfare do they plan to give the illegals?

Amnesty is not Conservatism

It sounds as though Los Gangstas de Ocho are sneaking some climate change and “gay marriage” crap into their amnesty bill.

I'll bet you he doesn't think so. After all, Hillary's the Dem favorite for 2016, isn't she? Unless something changes, Rubio will be the lesser of 2 evils to a lot of disgusted voters.

Well, we know that Leaky Leahy has already added an amendment in committee to insure "same sex" spouses would be given priority under the "family re-unification" section of the bill.

Why is it that 8 men representing the voters of 7 states drafted this bill? What about voters in the other 43 states whose voices are excluded because their senators are shut out of the process? This is supposed to be a government that represents the people, not a government of gangs and select committees.

I won't vote for anyone that votes for this piece of crap. I don't care who is running against them. Just like I didn't vote for Romney. The GOP needs to buy a clue.

You can bet the commie ‘RATS have slipped in a “reparations” bonus for all of the illegal aliens who were forced “to live in the shadows” for years. That’s just the way ‘RATS are.

How come the Treason Lobby never demands that the immigration laws that we now have simply be enforced?!

Oh yeah, silly me, that would mean deporting the foreign nationals who decided to squat here in violation of the law.

And the last thing that the Treason Lobby wants to do is enforce the law.

They are just eager to “reform” it, after which they won’t enforce the new law either.

The contemptible Hugh Hewitt is sponsoring an “immigration forum” tonight, where he will be selling the Treason Lobby’s steaming bucket of urine to whomever he can fool into drinking it.

Most of us have trouble following those, as simple as they are, much less the War and Peace man made versions coming out of DC.

I sure hope that you are right. But he’s not the only Amnesty pusher to have outed himself, Paul Ryan and Rand Paul showed that they put the interests of illegals ahead of Americans as well.

The ‘GANG OF EIGHT’ is a group of 6 WORTHLESS IDIOTS who should be run out of the senate for being there to long, a TRAITOR to his country (mccain) and a LIARing jr senator who wants to be president but is TO STUPID to realize that he just blew any chance he had of getting the nomination.

Well. I guess they will have to “fast track it” to ensure that nobody - that’s nobody - knows what the hell they’re signing!

Probably a half hour between delivery and vote is sufficient!

Reminds me of Mafia Kingpins meeting to see how much of the bounty each will get..

None of the eight care one iotta about the sovernity of this country...they’re ready to hand it to any who invade this precious land.

I am so sick of politicians masqurading as “servants” to the people when they only ones they serve are each other and those who can keep them in office. They ALL want the Hispanic vote....which would not be an issue had we established borders as every other country does..and enforced the laws we have.

This is absolutely a disgusting group of men...screw em!

....”interests of illegals ahead of Americans”....

Hispanic population is no different than the Islamic invasion. Politicians know the American people are not so easily led anymore...and Americans are fed up with the lot of them.

So they bring in the hoards, and when their numbers are sufficient...the American people’s voice will be silenced in the background of their roar. They’ll give them all we have and they’ll then vote for this creeps!

I do think this country is indeed lost to the hoards...both in our Government...(illegally)..and on our land (illegally).
