Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Monday announced his intention to file another amendment to the so-called “gang of eight” immigration bill that is facing tough opposition from some GOP lawmakers.

“I’ll file amendment to immigration bill that permits states to require ID before registering voters & close this hole in [federal] statutory law,” Cruz wrote via his official Twitter account.

Ted Cruz to Introduce Voter ID Requirement Amendment in Immigration Bill

@SenTedCruz Senator Ted Cruz

Cruz has consistently opposed the immigration bill, voting against its advancement in the Senate three times and has shown no signs of flipping on the legislation.

Cruz previously attempted to amend the bill to remove the path to citizenship provisions for illegal immigrants. As previously mentioned, the Texas Republican’s latest amendment would require states to require ID before registering voters.....

Let's make this so simple that even all elected retard congrescritters can understand it.
If whatever laws get passed DO NOT include A POISON CLAUSE THAT INVALIDATES THE ENTIRE THING if all related pre-conditions are not met we do not need them!

If all existing immigration laws are ignored with impunity, we sure as hell do not need more laws to be ignored with impunity.

Surely, the great legislative minds can devise a means to attach serious penalties (jail time?) to the branch of government charged with enforcing them!

This amendment is for the red meat patriots, it matter not it will never be adopted. We need to be careful of any concessions because if the House passes any form of Amnesty bill, nothing good will come out of a conference committee, but the bill will come to the floor and will be passed by the democrats.

It is a trap people, don't fall for it.

We need more like Ted Cruz (and Mike Lee).

Patriots, step up. NSA already has completed your background check. You have no problems; join Cruz and the others who are not afraid to stand up to these unconstitutional acts that are going on.

Ted Rocks!

Shove it McCain, Graham.

There are white families who have been denied entrance to the U.S.
because the” immigration quotas” were filled.

It’s all bull-hockey.

Makes perfect sense - - why would anybody oppose such an amendment?
Should be a slam dunk.

Unless, of course, the scumbag rats have an ulterior motive for wanting to legalize hordes of illegal aliens...
Nah... Should be a slam dunk. Yep.

Find it strange when the excuse is being given that while the government knows whats going on in 300 million citizens lives but because the illegals are not citizens and in “the shadows” as Senator Rubio claims the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..

FR’s ;MICHELLE BACHMANN ANNOUNCED OVER THE RUSTY HUMPHRIES SHOW THERE IS A ANTI AMNESTY RALLY SCHEDULED FOR DC ON THE CAPITOL GROUNDS FOR TOMORROW WED JUNE 19th TO LAST ALL DAY PROTESTORS WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO VISIT HOUSE MEMBERS TO MAKE THEIR FEELINGS KNOWN..
If you agree with the above and the following please don’t let it lay here in FR-land. Pass it on to to your favorite talk show host and to your US legislators..

ONE NATIONALITY AMNESTY SKEWS QUOTAS. AMNESTY FOR NATIONALS FROM A COUNTRY THAT HAS CLAIMS ON OUR NATIONAL TERRITORY HURTS OTHERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA, AMERICAN CITIZENS AND SKILLED LABOR FROM OTHER NATIONS

In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. There’s a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.

SOLVING THE ‘LATINO” PROBLEM A MYTH HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE BUT A POLITICAL LINGUISTIC CONTRIVANCE ...don’t fall into the hypenated Americans trap created by the hypenated political party ...The DEMO-COMS

The Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. They’re permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country don’t get.. Worse yet the Obama government has been working hand in glove with Mexican movements such as LaRaza supporting the Mexican claims which are also supporting “Amnesty”.

Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory is a recipe for later serious problems which are happening now.

ARE MEXICAN ILLEGALS SQUATTERS PERPETUATING THE MEXICAN CLAIMS ?

We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). It’s displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. We’re courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.

MOST COINS OF THE REALM HAVE TWO FACES WHAT ABOUT HOW ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS LIVING IN MEXICO BEING TREATED ?

Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. They’ll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesn’t apply to a citizen of Mexico.

By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally we’re offering no incentive for assimilation and we’re not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico.

ENOUGH OF THE ONE WORLD SOCIALISM ...BRING BACK SOVEREIGNTY AND SANITY TO OUR COUNTRY .....BRING BACK BELIEF IN GOD ...THIS GOVERNMENT OUT OUR FACE..... OUR RELIGIONS..... AND OUR BEDROOMS

Sound amendments on a bad bill never go anywhere; the American people are determnined to open the floodgates, and I don’t see what we can do to stop them.
