Skip to comments.BREAKING: Cornyn presents solution for Gang of Eight
Posted on 06/05/2013 1:55:52 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
In a dramatic breakthrough on immigration reform, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) is offering up an amendment to break the log jam and address his and other GOP senators concerns about border security.
Entitled the RESULTS amendment (Requiring Enforcement, Security and safety, & Upgrading Legitimate Trade and travel Simultaneously) the amendment would:
Requires DHS Secretary and GAO Comptroller General to jointly certify that these triggers are met before Registered Provisional Immigrants (RPI) can adjust to Lawful Permanent Resident (green card) status: 1. 100% Situational Awareness monitoring capability at every segment of Southern border 2. Full Operational Control defined as at least a 90% apprehension rate along Southern border 3. Biometric Exit System fully operational and in use at all air and sea ports of entry to which U.S. Customs and Border Protection is currently deployed; retains current law for land ports 4. Nationwide E-Verify System must be implemented (identical to S.744) Mandates that DHS deploy newly defined border security metrics to gauge success or failure. Requires DHS to issue a Southern Border Security Strategy within 120 days to achieve operational control of every sector of the Southern border, and a 50 percent wait-time reduction at land ports of entry.Authorizes supplemental and emergency appropriations to improve border security, including $1 billion per year over 6 years for land port of entry infrastructure improvements and personnel.

Here is my solution. Primary Cornlyn out of office!
Doesn’t matter. If Nobama doesn’t like it he will veto it if it is make too restrictive. If it does pass and signed the feds have shown their willingness to cherry pick which laws they enforce.
Cornyn is still dead to me as a Texan.
Once this goes through the GOP is finished. Eleven million new “immigrants” and five to ten million of their family members they will bring in...once Texas, Arizona, and Nevada become captive of the Democrat/immigrant vote...it’s over in the Electoral College.
This is suicide.
I propose we legalize’em, and institute these 99 other things.
Adopted and Implemented
The other 99 things.
No direct mention of a fence only infrastructure.
When should the border jumpers be allowed legal status? NEVER!!
She's like every other Eastern urban cosmopolite. Texas can go to hell, California already is hell, and who cares about Arizona and Colorado? I mean, as long as we can still get fresh knishes at 3 a.m., that's what counts, right?
Here is my amendment: Scrap everything else and secure the border. Talk to me after it is DONE, not planned, scheduled, half done, DONE.
What could be fairer than that?
The issue here is trust, or, at the very least, trust is an inseparable missing part of the process.
And, the political will isn't there, and the Senator knows it.
This bill must be stopped dead. Nothing less will do.
1. Seal the border with troops. Have the National Guard and Reserve folks do their two weeks per year there. Therefore no need to fund untold amounts of Border Patrol agents.
2. Rewrite the 14th Amendment so ‘anchor babies’ don’t get automatic citizenship.
3. Start cutting benefits to illegals. 1st year - 5% cut, across the board 2nd year - another 10% 3rd year - another 20% 4th year - 40%
If there are any left after that, which I doubt, in the 5th year all bennies are cut off. If they want to hire an immigration lawyer and sue, let them do it from their home country and then deny them a VISA so they can’t come to court.
The solution is no solution at all. It’s still amnesty and no enforcement. Nothing will change that.
That looks like a rather large pile of dung. They’re not trying to “find a solution,” they’re trying figure out how to hide the fact they’re not willing to secure the borders.
I like that. It sings to me.
Enforce the current law what is so hard about that!
We dont need legislation we need deportation!
Cornyn is no Ted Cruz. Goodbye, John.
