Skip to comments.GOP lawmakers preparing changes to immigration system (the smell of betrayal is in the air)

Interest in reforming the immigration law remains high as Republican lawmakers prepare bills that would make changes to the current system.
President Obama received harsh criticism after proposing an executive action steering clear from congressional approval to halt deportation for nearly four million immigrants. However, Republicans remain up to the task to enact their own proposals into the bill.

They damn sure are. We won’t forget their betrayal.
Might be time to march on Washington
Remember, Republicans are better than Democrats.
Because being stabbed in the back is better somehow. And it doesn’t hurt the brand. Which doesn’t hurt the long term chances of turning the country around.
Nope, nosiree. Keep voting Republican!
It’s probabaly a safe bet that there will be no bills pushing conservative reform of legal immigration. A sane GOP would be looking to reduce legal immigration. They would end extended family chain migration. They would abolish Ted Kennedy’s absurd Diversity Lottery Visas. They would severely restrict refugee and asylum visas. They would try to halt or at least slow the immigration-driven demographic shift of the United States towards the left.
But a sane GOP would have done all of this long ago, so there really isn’t much to hope for now.
I am for change in the on-going system:
1. physically seal the Southern border
2. Give the Border Patrol authority to do the job as set out in the US Code.
3. Enforce the current law forbidding employers from hiring illegal aliens.
4. Allow State and local law enforcement officers to enforce the immigration law as they do the federal criminal law.
5. Pass legislation prohibiting “anchor” babies. If a child in born to any foreign national, legal or illegal, that child is a citizen of the country of the parents.
If these go into effect, a deportation program will not be necessary. They will self-deport.
Re-establish the old migrant farm worker program whereby they arrive from a foreign country for a season and return home at the expense of the farmer’s associations - withhold part of their pay until they return to home country. Illegals cannot be part of the program, only those residing foreign.
They whom bankroll our “representatives” are more important to our “representatives” than we the people the “representatives” represent.
I see dead elephants! Zombie Elephant Robots, to be exact, under remote control of O’s White House!
They will be kicked out of office in the next election.
This time next year, there will be a strong FReeper chorus starting with that golden oldie, "ANY R is better than a D!"
Just shined up my pitch fork. Is a date set for the march? These clowns need to understand that the 2014 elections were not just for fun.....
I wish the RINOs would just change parties and be done with it.
A sane GOP would be focused on preserving the Constitution and working to put an end to executive fiat. The problem is that we absurdly ignore the real problem and play up the phony reasoning behind it. They say ‘Obama is only doing this because nothing has been done.’ Well nothing has been done precisely because the American people don’t want the changes they (Obama, dems and the Republican elite establishment) want to make. They take the attention away from the real problems, they’re not listening to us, enforcing the laws or doing the will of we the people and they place the attention on their phony concern — amnesty is the only solution and has to be given by the govt. someway, some how.
We need to stop playing up their phony concerns and focus on actual problem, both parties have decided that the Constitution is no longer relevant and believe that they should be able to bend the laws and shape them as they see fit.
In 2007, the McCain/Kennedy bill sought to increase “legal” immigration as a pressure release valve, to lessen illegal immigration.
That bill allowed annual increases to legal immigration from Mexico, that could in ten to twenty years allow massive numbers of it’s citizens to come into the U. S. legally.
One thing they are doing now, is allowing visas for visits to remain valid for much longer periods of time.
We have problems now, with something like 3 to 6 months on a visitor pass. Imagine the problems with evasion if a visitor gets to stay, obtains a job, and refuses to comply.
This would be a nightmare to enforce. Ah yes, but that’s the idea isn’t it.
Round two in ten years...
This nation is being capsized on purpose.
Is it possible all that so-called “nonsense” talk so many of us had about the Democrats infiltrating our ranks all the way from the grassroots to the RNC wasn’t just talk after all? Or maybe we’ve always had far too many moderates in our ranks than we cared to admit. Either way the GOP is about to take a winning advantage and blow it all in just a few years.
They need to seal the damn border, stop invaders with Visas from disappearing here after the Visas expire, THEN talk about how to deal with illegals already here.
As for “temporal guest workers” SCREW THAT!!!
If they can’t stop holders of temporary visas from jumping ship here, HOW THE HELL WILL THEY DEAL WITH HORDES OF “TEMPORARY” guest workers??????
If we need more people here, raise the immigration quotas and get those SPECIFIC workers we need. Pick ones who want to learn English and BE AMERICANS! !!
Don’t create massive unassimilable ghettoes of hostile foreign third class residents like the idiots in Europe did with those damn Muslims just so certain segments of corporate America can have a cheap source of peon labor.
The republican leadership are fascist/socialists just like their democrat friends.
