Stand With Arizona

Perhaps the most visible argument in favor of term limits in Congress, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) - who has served in Congress since 1965 - and known for uttering bizarre and offensive statements, has done it yet again.

The Ranking Member on the House Judiciary Immigration subcommittee, Conyers before today's hearing on potential "reform" legislation scolded other members in advance for calling illegal aliens "illegal immigrants" - calling them "out of  status". Perhaps even more bizarrely, Conyers - twice - refers to illegals as "citizens":

I hope no one uses the term ‘illegal immigrants’ here today, Conyers said.  Our citizens are not–” he said, breaking off to correct himself.  “Our, the people in this country are not illegal.  They are out of status.  They are new Americans that are immigrants, and I think that we can forge a path to citizenship that will be able to pass muster.”

You call it corn, we call it maize.

Personally I prefer the more accurate "Criminal Alien".

Mr. Conyers must not realize that the Dixiecrats mocked black people years ago by calling them ‘citizens’.

I totally agree Mr. Conyers. They are citizens. Citizens of whatever country they came from. They are here illegally and they need to be returned to their own country immediately.

They’re not citizens. Why is Conyers still in Congress?

Conyers knows what "illegal" means.

His wife Monica Conyers, former City Councilwoman, served time in federal prison.

“Immigrant” implies legality.

The correct term is “alien”. They’re illegal aliens.

I doubt CONyers would be quite so friendly to Canadians if they were invading Detroit and driving blacks out by force and intimidation.

Time for a focused ousting of Conyers. Get a small team of people giving him the deep scrutiny until enough dirt is gathered to jail him. No wishy-washy congressional committee, just a good old fashioned crime trial.

John Conyers, who has served in Congress since 1965

Too bad Americans refuse to wake up to the government corruption.

The great generation stood by and watch these people spend their entire lives in government, as they became more and more corrupt and controlling. We now have GD dynasties with the country turning into an oligarchy.

A Constitutional amendment should have been passed 80 GD years ago declaring no one could hold elected office more than 8 years...Period!

That's it! No more bull shit!

The longer these people are in power, the worse, the more corrupt, the more controlling and arrogant they become!

Just look at our country!

This country better get it right real fast, or it's f'n over and won't even be salvageable. This should have been done decades ago for cripes sake...

The Michigan GOP chairman is asking to reopen the investigation of the fake tea party scam of 2010. It appears that one of those convicted is now naming the former Michigan Democratic party chair as the ringleader.

Oakland dem links Brewer to tea party scheme

This really needs some attention.

John Conyers calls for border laws to be broken AND this long in the tooth politician is getting away with it. How can any elected American call for lawlessness...Illegal Aliens are law breakers. Mr. Conyers must know what crime is...his wife is a criminal.

These word shenanigans are practiced by both sides of the aisle. Over at the GOP Elite rationalization website (i.e., hughhewitt.com) the latest attempt is to change “amnesty” for illegal aliens to “regularization” of the lawbreakers.

If they are “citizens” and not “illegal” why are we holding hearings and discussing passing laws on making these “illegals” “citizens”?

“John Conyers calls for border laws to be broken”

I agree, at the same time these clowns are calling for an expansion of laws that will be punitive to current citizens that are not breaking any current laws! What do you get when you have no consistency in law? You get a banana republic!

Yet the average citizen is happy discussing Beyonce and the superdome power outage!
