    Sean Hannity, John Boehner say GOP should tackle immigration reform

    Sean Hannity, John Boehner say GOP should tackle immigration reform | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

    We've gotta get rid of the immigration issue altogether. It's simple for me to fix it. I think you control the border first, you create a pathway for those people that are here, you don't say you gotta go home. And that is a position that I've evolved on. Because you know what—it just—it's gotta be resolved. The majority of people here—if some people have criminal records you can send 'em home—but if people are here, law-abiding, participating, four years, their kids are born here ... first secure the border, pathway to citizenship ... then it's done. But you can't let the problem continue. It's gotta stop.
    Latinos don't want to vote for Republicans, prominent Republicans suddenly join us "pro-illegal scum". I wish all Republican nominees in 2016 good luck. Not only that, I hope NONE of them have said anything too damaging about illegal immigration. However, that's a less than likely possibility these days. I hope they haven't blamed the illegals for taking jobs, or blamed them for drug dealing, or blamed them for them not being able to afford healthcare.

    However, I know that's a less than likely possibility. Even states who don't have Mexico next to them are chimed in on the issue. Here is Bobby Jindal

    http://www.ontheissues.org/Governor/...mmigration.htm

    Within 18 months, achieves operational control over U.S. land and maritime borders, including:

    systematic border surveillance through more effective use of personnel and technology; and
    physical infrastructure enhancements to prevent unlawful border entry

    Defines "operational control" as the prevention of all unlawful U.S. entries, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, narcotics, and other contraband.

    Proponents support voting YES because:

    It is obvious there is no more defining issue in our Nation today than stopping illegal immigration. The most basic obligation of any government is to secure the Nation's borders. One issue in which there appears to be a consensus between the Senate and the House is on the issue of building a secure fence. So rather than wait until comprehensive legislation is enacted, we should move forward on targeted legislation which is effective and meaningful. The legislation today provides over 700 miles of two-layered reinforced fencing, and for the rest of the border provides a virtual fence, via integrated surveillance technology.

    Opponents support voting NO because:

    Just to build the fence is going to cost us at least $7 billion. Where is the money coming from to pay for it? How much is it going to cost to maintain this 700-mile fence? Who is going to do it? This bill contains no funding.

    This bill also ignores real enforcement measures, like hiring more Border Patrol personnel, and instead builds a Berlin Wall on our southern border. So long as employers need workers in this country, and while our immigration systems impede rather than facilitate timely access of willing workers to those opportunities, undocumented immigration will never be controlled.

    Walls, barriers, and military patrols will only force those immigrants to utilize ever more dangerous routes and increase the number of people who die in search of an opportunity to feed and clothe their families.
    Jindal co-sponsored bill requiring government services in English only

    A bill to provide that Executive Order 13166 shall have no force or effect, and to prohibit the use of funds for certain purposes.

    Be it enacted that Executive Order 13166, 'Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency' (August 16, 2000), is null and void and shall have no force or effect.

    On August 11, 2000, the President signed Executive Order 13166. The Executive Order requires Federal agencies to examine the services they provide, identify any need for services to those with limited English proficiency (LEP), and develop and implement a system to provide those services so LEP persons can have meaningful access to them.
    How ironic that the GOP's anti-Mexican rhetoric will now be part of their undoing.

    It's good to see them finally coming around. It remains to be seen whether the House back-benchers will follow suit though.

    Pro-illegal rat traitorous scum exist in the republican party.This is nothing new. I am sure pro-illegal rat traitorous scum exist in every party out there unless its a party with a anti-illegal immigration position as part of their party's platform.Those scum in the republican were trying to push for the McCain/Kennedy/Bush amnesty plan back when Bush was office. Luckily the American people spoke up and that amnesty plan was defeated.





    How ironic that the GOP's anti-Mexican rhetoric will now be part of their undoing.
    Are you trying to say that all Mexicans are illegals? I ask because there is no anti-Mexican rhetoric going on.There is anti-illegal immigration rhetoric going on. So if you're claiming that anti-illegal immigration rhetoric is anti-Mexican rhetoric does that mean you think Mexicans and other people of Hispanic decent are here illegally?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No. I'm trying to say that the GOP has a clear anti-Mexican rhetoric. Case and point: SPEAK ENGLISH IN 'MURICA!

    When you have a party:

    1. constantly blaming one particular ethnic group for loss of jobs
    2. creating laws supposedly targeting illegal immigrants, who as we all really know are overwhelmingly Mexican
    3. and going against the grain of what their revered founders came up with in order to quell the immigration of that particular group

    then there is clearly an agenda against said group. Now, you can play the shuffle game all you want about how that's not an anti-Mexican agenda, but hey - facts speak louder than words. The GOP is playing the 150 year old game of trying to make the U.S. as unwelcoming to Mexican immigrants as possible by making the main demographic of voters vehemently xenophobic and supporting of laws which we all know are tailored against Mexicans legal or illegal.

    well, they generally learn english anyway, or at the least their kids do so it's really a non issue the republicans could safely ignore.

    Sure it is. Just like they'll ignore the fact that just 6 months ago they were trying to do away with birthright citizenship to stop Mexicans from coming over.

    I'm glad. Let their schizophrenic stance on this issue bury them. Democrats will make good use of this.

    might backfire, might work, if they do manage to close that pathway to citizenship it will reduce the pace of their base's demographic decline.

    Good luck overturning the 14th amendment with an unpopular bill.
