House Republicans crafting Dream Act-like immigration bill
The Hill ^ | 7/11/2013

Posted on 07/11/2013 4:33:40 PM PDT by markomalley

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) are drafting legislation to provide a path to citizenship for immigrant children who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents, their offices said Thursday.

The bill, which a Cantor spokeswoman said is in its “early stages,” would be the first House Republican proposal to address the status of illegal immigrants, but it would not go nearly as far as Democrats want. While the legislation resembles the Dream Act that is part of the Senate immigration bill, aides said it would not be as broad.

The Senate Dream Act provides an expedited path to citizenship for children and for young adults in college or who have served in the military. The House GOP proposal, by contrast, may be limited to younger people. “As part of the step-by-step approach the House is taking to address immigration reform, Leader Cantor and I are working on a bill to provide a legal status to those who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children by their parents,” Goodlatte said in a statement Thursday.

“These children came here through no fault of their own and many of them know no other home than the United States,” Goodlatte said. “This is one component of immigration reform — any successful reform plan must improve our legal immigration programs, strengthen border security and the interior enforcement of our immigration laws, and find a way to fairly deal with those who are currently in the country unlawfully.”

Aides said there is no timetable for when the proposal would get a committee hearing or vote.

The Judiciary Committee has already approved four immigration bills dealing with interior enforcement, an e-verify system for employers, high-skilled visas and an agricultural guest-worker program.

Democrats said the move was a welcome sign from Republicans who have been reluctant to provide any legal status to illegal immigrants. But they said it is not enough.

“You’ve got to deal with all aspects of the broken immigration system,” said Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), the House Democratic caucus chairman who is working on a bipartisan, comprehensive bill. “You can help the kids, but if you leave the parents behind, you still have a very broken system.”

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said the House would move immigration reform on a step-by-step basis rather than with a comprehensive bill. Becerra said the system could not be fixed with “band-aids” or “in pieces.”

“I’m not in the Republican conference. I’m not the Speaker,” Becerra said. “The Speaker has to determine how he can try to move things forward. I will simply say that we know what it takes to fix the broken immigration system. Pieces don’t fix the machine. You’ve got to fix the machine. You know, man up, do it right, get it done.”

Several lawmakers made compelling cases for approving some version of the Dream Act during Wednesday’s closed-door House GOP meeting on immigration reform.

“It seemed like a lot more people [thought] that if you were brought here as a child and you graduate valedictorian — how can we be against it?,” one veteran lawmaker told The Hill after the meeting. “A lot of people said that and I was surprised.”

An embrace of any form of the Dream Act would represent a shift by the GOP, especially since just last month the House voted to kill policies that give officials discretion to not deport illegal immigrants considered low-risk.

Only six Republicans opposed the amendment sponsored by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and approved by the House in a 224-201 vote.

Republican leaders have consistently voted against the Democrats' Dream Act over the last several years.

According to one member of the Republican leadership team who spoke to The Hill on the condition of anonymity, it was apparent at Wednesday's lengthy meeting that "there was a growing recognition" the GOP needed to deal with the issue.

"I think there's growing support to deal with that in immigration — that immigration is changing before our eyes because our kids have grown up with these kids, they're in the families, they're in the neighborhoods, they are graduating with our kids and it's like, what the heck are you going to do with a 18-year-old valedictorian who was brought in when they were one or two?," the lawmaker said.

Cantor's effort on a Republican Dream Act is consistent with a post-election speech he delivered at the American Enterprise Institute in February. When it comes to immigration reform, Cantor said at the time, "a good place to start is with the kids."

He added, "One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents."

Last year, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) planned to offer the a Republican version of the Dream Act, but later opted not to.

So most of them think that if a child was brought here and then graduates valedictorian that they should become citizens. Okay, how many is that? 2? 3??? Couldn’t be many so I am okay with that. Everyone else has to go.

This comes under the generality of “It’s for the children.” It is designed to paint Republicans in a corner. If any Republican objects, their words testify that they are heartless, cruel, mean spirited beasts (you would think they are pro-abortion) and will allow the Democrats to join in the frenzy. Their objective is amnesty. These two Republicans are truly devious snakes.

Why not create a law, that every person who is a citizen of Mexico is automatically a citizen of the United States. And for every new citizen, they should strip one current citizen of citizenship.

This might be what ends up happening:

The establishment and Boner realize a 3rd party will form if they pass full on amnesty. However, they will be assaulted by the media and big business as racists if they pass nothing. In exchange for some border security figleafs that will probably never be enforced, the House will overwhelmingly pass Dream Act amnesty for wannabe anchor babies.

Republicans get their “border security”, Dems get most of what they want with amnesty, everyone wins. Except Americans.

Odd that he picks something Obama has already practically done by executive decree.

And where is that great founding principle stated? Utopian blather. Children are constantly disadvantaged for the mistakes of their parents and government can't change that.

Does Cantor also think that children should be rewarded with something people all over the world want, but will never have, rewarded with US citizenship because their parents are in the US illegally and have been serial lawbreakers all the time they've been here?

In July 2003, then-congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colorado)gave Insight Magazine the following account of his conversation in Mexico with Juan Hernandez, head of the newly created Ministry of Mexicans Living in the United States. According to Mr. Tancredo:

“I asked about the purpose of the government agency he heads, since I had never heard of such a thing. He said its purpose is to increase the flow of Mexican nationals to the United States. I asked, ‘Why?’

"’It serves Mexico's needs,’ he said, and ticked off a list of such things as remittances to Mexico of $10 billion a year, which is 30 percent of the Mexican GDP [gross domestic product]. It provides employment for an exploding population, it alleviates social instability due to rising unemployment and it provides training for Mexicans, ultimately repatriating those skills back to Mexico.

"I responded to his final aim - repatriation of trained and skilled Mexicans back into Mexico - and asked, ‘Then your government would oppose amnesty for the illegal Mexicans in the United States?’

"He cried, ‘Oh no! We support amnesty totally. . . . by populating the United States with millions of Hispanics who are tied economically, politically and linguistically to Mexico, we are able to exert enormous influence and pressure on U.S. policy and its dealings with Mexico.’

"President Vicente Fox believes the U.S. border is a figment of the imagination. In fact, Fox and/or members of his government stated at one point that the borders of Mexico extend much farther north than currently drawn on the map.”

I’m not okay with that. Parents raise their children abroad in foreign countries legally all the time—without them somehow because of that earning citizenship in that country. Businessmen, diplomats, NGO workers, missionaries, etc., all raise their children abroad—but legally—and it is not some undue hardship that the children do not automatically become citizens of that country.

The same should apply even more so with children brought in and raised here illegally!

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” according to Florida’s Senator Rubio the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..

THE QUESTION IS SENATORS HOW COULD YOU PASS A 1200 PAGE BILL YOU HAVEN’T READ... THAT HAS A FINE OF $5000 FOR ANY EMPLOYER WHO HIRES A CITIZEN OVER AN ILLEGAL ...WHY ARE YOU SO SET ON IMPORTING LOW WAGE LABORERS MAINLY FROM ONE COUNTRY WHICH TAKE UP JOBS OUR YOUTH AND ESPECIALLY BLACKS COULD BE PERFORMING ?

KNOWING THIS HOW CAN YOU HOUSE MEMBERS PASS ANY KIND OF LEGISLATION THAT MAY HAVE THAT AND AN UNSECURED BORDER COMMING OUT OF “CONFERENCE”....???HOW ABOUT REPRESENTING THE INTERESTS OF YOUR CONSTITUENTS AND THE COUNTRY NOT YOUR POLITICAL PARTY ?

FR’s ; are urged to visit their respective Congressional Representatives and let them know their feelings ... WHEN IT COMES TO AMNESTY

THIS IS THE MEXICAN PART NO ONE DARES MENTION

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. PUSH THE HASTERT RULE.

ONE NATIONALITY AMNESTY SKEWS QUOTAS. HURTS OTHERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA, AND SKILLED LABOR QUOTAS FROM OTHER NATIONS ...WORSE YET OFFERING AMNESTY FOR NATIONALS FROM A COUNTRY THAT HAS CLAIMS ON OUR NATIONAL TERRITORY THAT COULD AND HAS TURNED INTO PROBLEMS FOR BORDER STATES CLAIMED BY MEXICO .

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 hyphenated Americans trap created by the hyphenated 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

THE SOLUTION ASSERT OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND TALK RECIPROCITY .

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..

If this story becomes real (and I'm not saying it won't), you will hear about it everywhere.

I have to say, that FR is posting way more than 100 times more on Zimmerman trial threads than on immigration threads is a bad sign. It's sad where we are putting our attention....

Thanks. Maybe the article is wrong. It says that Cantor and Goodlatte are writing a bill with a path-to-citizenship for Dreamers, but every other source I have read about this says that Goodlatte is opposed to such a path-to-citizenship. Or maybe he changed his mind recently, who knows. The article later quotes Goodlatte as saying "legal status" instead of path-to-citizenship.

I have to say, that FR is posting way more than 100 times more on Zimmerman trial threads than on immigration threads is a bad sign. It's sad where we are putting our attention....

For what it's worth, I think FReepers will pay more attention when they have real bills written and start voting.

Post-facto "anchor babies".

They will then petition to have their illegal parents, grandparents, uncles and nephews to stay (so as to "not break up the family") Just watch. Then they will also petition for more immigrants OUTSIDE the USA to come in, with no skills and just seeking to get on the dole. The WHOLE FIASCO WILL CASCADE INTO A BIG PILE OF CRAP. Guaranteed.

MAN do we ever have some traitors on our side of the aisle. Primary their hides!

"Pathway to US Destruction" is more like it.

I hope you're right about the attention coming later, but later may be too late. At this point it's hard to not see why we lose so often......I think the Zimmerman trial is a travesty too, but this issue is waaaaay beyond one person getting screwed.

As to what's really happening with the leadership, until I see the actual evidence, until my congresscritter's aide tells me something different, I'm not biting on the MSM attempt to demoralize us. It's what they do and what they will keep doing, it's what they do for a living.

If and when the House leadership turns traitor like the RINO Senators have, I'll be as livid as anyone.
