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.

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.
enough of this sh-t already. blow this immigration bs up already and enforce the laws that exist. the system certainly worked well enough when it was adhered to for over a century.
Thank God for the Tea Party and a republican majority in the House ... to handle TREASON within Congesss.
if the gop assists...what? the GOP is in charge, right now, of getting this passed. keep calling.
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
Comment at site may say it all: Isnt Barack Obama subject to charges for all of these offenses? Maybe thats 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.
Our government is inciting a riot.
“Thank God for the Tea Party and a republican majority in the House ... to handle TREASON within Congresss.”
You’re joking...right? I didn’t see a sarc tag.
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 ~
Well I’m certainly convinced the GOP. Does not want this old guys votes or money...
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.
Is it time for an American Spring?
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.
Yup 18 Rinos and he Rats = Law...
It’s time for massing millions of us on streets and not shutting up until. Not sure what until. But we have a rogue gov.
>> 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.
I agree. I don’t know how we get started but we need to get our butts out there. Enough already!
agree....these rinos should be arrested for treason. can you imagine giving obama an out for using a connecticut social security number instead of a felony conviction
What will it take to convince these idiots??? ITS OUR COUNTRY NOT THE DAMN POLITICIANS!!!...A million man march on Washington?
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.
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.
...in other news, illegal Mexican Bank robbers, will now receive free savings and checking accounts...
I apologize for voting for Corker and inflicting this liar on us all. I did not support him in the primaries.
YES!!! I'm getting SICK of the ads and the politicians (yes, I'm screaming) that talk about "fixing our broken system", and the useful idiots that parrot that line. IT ISN'T THAT IT'S BROKEN - IT'S THAT IT'S NOT BEING USED!!
yeah, those ads are insulting and patronizing.
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.
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!
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.
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?
Rush finally said it. They’re working toward one party government. And with blackmail they’re accomplishing their goal rather fast.
I wonder if there are posters from conservative websites who post something the government thinks is a tad too threatening and all of a sudden stop posting.
I don’t know.
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.
Has TN had anyone good in Congress since Davy Crockett? I know Mrs. Blackburn is good, but is there anyone else?
