Corker Amendment Permanently Offers Citizenship to Those Overstaying Their Visa
Brietbart ^ | 21 Jun 2013 | Mike Flynn

Posted on 06/21/2013 4:02:41 PM PDT by Cheerio

Just as public anxiety about the weak border security provisions in the Senate immigration bill was building, GOP Sen. Bob Corker stepped forward with an amendment to "fix" the problem. The result of his efforts, however, has been a "christmas tree" measure, covering items far beyond border security. Breitbart News has learned exclusively that one provision of Corker's amendment will allow workers who stay in the country past their visa will remain on the "path to citizenship."

Even in the future, breaking the law won't stop progress on what VP Joe Biden calls the "unfettered path" to citizenship.

Current law states that those applying for green cards are ineligible if they are either "illegally present" at any point or overstay the terms of their work visa. Such an immigrant, in current law, would have to return to their home country and restart the immigration process. The Corker Amendment wipes away that enforcement mechanism.



Let us hope this goes down in flames. IF the GOP assists in passing this in the Senate and passing onto the House and the House paases it in committee let us hope the GOP meets it's demise before the election of 2014.

This is utter madness with a political class bent on legitimizing Invasion

They must think that the police state they have erected will somehow hold it all together.

another problem...WHY the RUSH???

Just a few felony crimes that will be waived for ILLEGAL aliens under Immigration Bill S.744:

‘Falsely representing or knowingly using a Social Security Number obtained with false information’

‘Falsely claiming citizenship on Form I-9’

‘Knowingly altering a Social Security Card’

‘Document fraud to prove eligibility for employment’

http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2013/06/immigration-bill-waives-felony-document-fraud.html

Comment at site may say it all: “Isn’t Barack Obama subject to charges for all of these offenses? Maybe that’s why the immigration bill is getting the ultra-fast track treatment; maybe evidence of his ineligibility is mounting toward levels which can no longer be ignored.”

The system started in the immediate post WWI era, barely a century. You have to recall that for most of our history most of the people coming here didn't want to be here!

Obviously they were stupid ~ but we had to GIVE stuff to wheat farmers in Europe to move here!

Most of my own lineages are made up of people who were here as early as the mid 1500s ~ and that's just rare as all get out ~ seriously. Big time immigration didn't show up until the early 1800s when two decisions were made ~ (1) to allow Catholics to move here, and (2) to give away land.

Mind you not all the Catholics in the world came here ~ and not all the landless poor did either, but there was plenty of hard work for everyone who did and a chance to become an important person, or maybe even wealthy.

For the greater part of our history you couldn't pay a Mexican enough to come here ~

If they give illegal aliens tax amnesty, citizenship, etc, I am denouncing my US citizenship and taking an Hispanic name, refuse to pay any further taxes. I can declare tax amnesty and vote as many times as I want to.

Disgraceful and unforgivable behavior by the Senate GOP. They are putting their House brethren in an untenable position. The MSM will move heaven and Earth to push a bill, ANY bill, through the House.

I cannot understand how southern GOP senators are getting away with this crap, whether they are up in 2014 or 2016.

This is political suicide for the GOP.

>> an amendment to “fix” the problem.

Coordinated and timed. No chance for public response.

These deceitful GOPsters remind me of the “Pro Life” Democrats that signed onto Obamacare in exchange for the meaningless EO.

That’s what Marxist regimes do in order to justify putting down an iron fist of absolute rule and control.

None of this is by accident or by incompetence.

The GOP knows where the power is going to lie in the MarxoFascist dictatorship being constructed around us. And they will do anything to share in it.

I don't know where you got your information about Catholics not being allowed to move here until the early 1800s. Maryland was started as a refuge for Catholics by Lord Baltimore in the 1600s. William Penn allowed Catholics to settle in colonial Pennsylvania. Charles Carroll of Carrolton, one of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence, was a Catholic and one of the richest men in America--a Maryland plantation owner. His relative Daniel Carroll was a signer of the US Constitution and also a Catholic.

The Homestead Act did not get passed until the Civil War--but there were plenty of immigrants before then, and some of them bought farmland.

Yes, if you don’t trust the prescription the doctor gives you then by all means throw it away but don’t go around blaming the doctor for your illness and demand that he write another prescription.

They act like they were shown proof that the US of A has been defeated, so they are writing articles defining our surrender.

BS! Show US all that "proof" and we'll go from there, otherwise Corker and his ilk need to be shown the end of their political careers.

Or a cell. The Constitution specifically directs the Fed to secure US from invasion, not open all the doors and grant equal citizenship to all foreign invaders!

You’re joking...right?

My answer is ... I don't think so.

Treason is defined in the US Constitution in the words ... "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war aginst them, or in adhering to their Enemies. giving them Aid and Comfort."

We have, today, a President (lacking appropriate credentials) giving aid and comfort to ... ?

That last, in my opinion, is loaded with anti-American entities.

Believe it or not but in the various codicils surrounding the Treaty of London (1604), the treaty crammed down the throats of everybody in Europe by the guy who owned America, Filipe II/III, son of Filipe I/iI, there's a section on the rules of toleration ~ on how Catholics should behave in non catholic lands, and how non catholics should behave in Catholic lands.

Most folks skip over that part, but for the King of Spain who ruled over 15 separate kingdoms and principalities, each with its own constitution, ancient customs and religious divisions, this was very important.

That's the treaty that carved up North America among the king's Russian, Scottish, French and Spanish relatives ~ oh, and carved out the very worst part ~ a barren desert according to some, where Protestants could go. It was a space nearly as large as Western Europe.

That's where it starts ~ the fundamental law itself created a Catholic free Protestant refuge.

During the next couple of centuries things changed.

Regarding Maryland, it was carved out of Virginia, as was New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania an New Jersey. The Calverts said 'Catholics go here' and some did, but it was for English Catholics, not all Catholics! By 1685 they'd lost all civil liberties and were simply tolerated ~ the community was saved by intermarriage ~ as usual. Almost everyone with a Smallwood ancestor has a Carroll ancestor, and vice versa.

In general, the English, who ran much of North America, did not encourage Catholic immigration. Priests were less than welcome except in French and Spanish territory. There are neat maps on the net to show you who claimed what at which periods, but more importantly, look at the really large boundary lines ~ the PA/NY state line is a substantial part of one of them. It ran to Chicago all the way from the tip of Cape Cod. This was surveyed in the early 1600s by a Spanish company with Swedish and Dutch employees.

Then, look at the Virginia/North Carolina line ~ that too was done in the early 1600s by a different Spanish company, with Breton and Swedish employees. Look how far that line goes ~ to the MISSISSIPPI ~ with a couple of deviations to get around some geographic obstacles.

Those were adventures worthy of Lewis and Clark!

DesIsles show another line West of the MIssissippi from Arcola Texas to Kensington Minnesota ~ that may have been done a little later as a BASE LINE for further subdivision of Spain West of the Great River. They've even found Spanish boundary stones along all those lines ~ they have a peculiar shape.

Now, in the East, the Treaty of 1604 called for marking the Western boundary of the open (protestant) territory through the highest peaks of the Cordillera ~ that is, the Smokey Mountains, and lo and behold marker stones have been found for that irregular boundary.

So, where did you hear that the area the King of Spain himself set aside for Protestants was open to Catholics?

I don’t think it is too threatening if it’s not about violence or threatening a persons life and such.

I wanted to add:

I think what our government is doing is more threatening to the lives of American citizens than anything I’ve ever read on Free Republic.

Our government doesn’t intend to do background checks on these people they are wanting to grant blanket citizenship to. The ones protesting for amnesty have already went and protested a private home. That is unacceptable.
