Early Thursday morning, the bipartisan Gang of Eight senators will announce an agreement to strengthen border security.

“We will add 1 border guard for every estimated 3,000 illegals that invade our country” how can you argue with that?
marcrolled rustupidtotrustme & juan mCpilot!
The GOOBers better not fall for this a second time. "Agreements" are just like New Year's resolutions. They are made to be broken.
And you can thank BOEHNER. He views his role as collecting votes for Obama. And the sht for brains Repubs put him back in as Speaker.
I changed my party affiliation last week. Sick of these clowns. They don’t get the job done.
That may have been a bit harsh but really, immigration is the #1 issue?
F&F, AP, IRS, NSA, Benghazi... any one of which are serious crimes by themselves warranting investigation and punishment. Any one of these is political gold. The moribund Repubs don’t do a thing about any of them. Instead they focus on advancing Obama/Democrat agenda: “immigration reform”, which is nothing but amnesty.
So actually, I wasn’t harsh enough. Not by a mile.
More from the article. (More lies!)
A second capitol hill source tells ABC News the agreement will include a major border build up, with a huge increase in border personnel and an increase in fencing. The change will mean the legislation will deliver the 70 votes desired by the bipartisan group.
Probably years down the road.
We’ll have to see what they have.
They’ve already showed their hand. They intend to flood the nation with millions of people who have hopped the turnstyle and thumbed their noses at one of the most sacred institutions that forms the backbone of a nation... border security and customs enforcement. They are just trying to figure out what flavor candy coating to put on this monstrously destructive legislation.
“I changed my party affiliation last week.”
I changed my party affiliation the day that the house re-elected that traitor boehner, worthless. compromised weakling scum of a person.
if whatever it does doesn’t happen before “legalization” (amnesty), it can’t work.
Marco Rubio, 2009
I am strongly against amnesty. The most important thing we need to do is enforce our existing laws.
We have existing immigration laws that are not being adequately enforced.
Nothing will make it harder to enforce the existing laws, if you reward people who broke them.
It demoralizes people who are going through the legal process, its a very clear signal of why go through the legal process, if you can accomplish the same thing if you go through the illegal process.
And number two, if demoralizes the people enforcing the laws.
I am not, and I will never support any effort to grant blanket legalization/amnesty to folks who have entered, stayed in this country illegally.
H/T right scoop
They’ll send 250 billion to mexico so they can beef up their side of the border and keep their people in.
Our border patrol will be cut so mooo-chelle can go to ireland to visit the blarmy stone.
Can someone with contacts in the NSA put out a search for all the freepers last year who defended Perry’s no fence bs and argued about what a bad idea it was? They seem to be missing from these immigration/ocho threads.
This crap is WHY a physical fence must be built. Lib pols can and do play games with semantics on security. A fence is THERE and once built, will never be undone.
The Dems told Reagan a fence would be built in exchange for his Amnesty for illegals, too.. Still waiting for them to make good on their 25+ year old promise!
I see this as a coordinated two pronged attack.
The objective of the “immigration reform” prong is to regularize illegal aliens. In order to obtain this objective a token move to control the borders & ports may be offered. This token is a sop to buy votes. It will be weak, partial, temporary, virtual, and in the future. Watch for requirements to be pushed down to a commission or other administrative body rather than specified in law.
The second prong is the attack on citizenship verification. The Supreme Court just struck Arizona’s voting registration citizenship verification requirements.
States are already giving Driver Licenses to illegal aliens. This will only become more widespread and “acceptable” as a result of amnesty.
These two prongs work together to enable foreigners to register to vote and on election day produce a state issued photo-id (Driver License) and cast votes.
A vote can not be undone.
When foreigners control your government you are conquered.
Rather than control who enters the country everyone will be admitted and a Rube Goldberg process of tracking will be instituted.
Rather than control who registers to vote everyone will be registered and admitted to the process, the onus on the State to determine who is illegally registered while the State is barred from obtaining information from the applicant.
Common sense: Control the point of entry - to the country and the voting process - rather than backstop it after the fact.
Rot in hades Ocho stupidos.
A huge Border Patrol with no authority to stop them from coming over the border.
Obama is openly planning on arming Al Qaeda.
And the first priority of The Speaker Of The House is amnesty?
There is something very very wrong in DC.
Very very wrong.
