    Anything for power, besides look at Mexico the politicians are paid quite well there. Schumar likes living off the people.

    Why are Democrats so willing to throw away the country just to win an elections? This is like willlingly accepting pancreatic cancer so the Giants are assured to win the next four Super Bowls.

    This would be the death knell for the United States in fairly short order.

    “Illegal immigration will be a thing of the past,” Schumer said on the Senate floor, celebrating the passage of the motion to proceed.
    Schumer complained in an impassioned and lengthy speech on the Senate floor that opponents saying the bill does not have border security “is not fair.” Schumer said giving billions of dollars to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will lead to increased border security, even if illegal immigrants are given amnesty first. He promised that assurances of future border security measures would be maintained.

    And why are the Democrats so eager to create a “path to citizenship” for these foreign invaders? I think the answer is obvious. They are seeking the votes and support of these criminals.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    This has been or was going to happen anyway. The mexicans don't want to come here anymore! I mean, we all saw the south park ep.

    You answered your own question.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Re: Schumer: 'Illegal Immigration Will Be a Thing of the Past'

    The chance to do "Give everyone amnesty and we promise we'll get really serious on immigration enforcement to make sure we don't suffer this same fate a few decades later" was back in the 1980's

    Amnesty was given.

    Getting serious on immigration enforcement wasn't.

    Three decades later, here we are.

    Either Enforce THEN deal with those here, or if you want a compromise....Enforce and allow residence without benefits/citizenship until Triggers are met.

    But simply "Amnesty and trust us, we really really really mean it this time that enforcement will happen" is a non starter. That cry of "Wolf" isn't being bought any longer

    There will likely always be some number of illegal aliens, whether these trespassing illegal aliens are terrorists, drug-runners, spies, thieves (the vast majority of the 20 million), human traffickers, whatever, and no matter how long they had been in America or planned to be in America.

    However, if we do two things we can greatly reduce the number of these illegal aliens: 1) greatly improve the border security, which can be done successfully with the right combination of physical presence and information presentation to all nations, and 2) put equal effort into preventing illegal aliens from receiving public benefits (other than life-saving emergency medical) and partaking in private transactions (such as employment, banking, etc.).

    These are things we can easily do now.

    The information presentation is hugely important, as communicating to the world that America will no longer tolerate illegal aliens in any way will greatly reduce the incentive to come here to violate American citizens.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    It is hardly specific to democrats. All politicians will put career ahead of everything else. Common knowledge.

    This bill will hit a brick wall in the house. It isn't exactly a done deal.

    The Reagan administration did try to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws in the interior. What the Reagan administration did was to appoint someone in charge who was going to do take his job seriously and enforce our laws. That person was Harold Ezzel who was appointed as director of the western region of NIS.

    He was good, our laws were being enforced but the usual people yelled "racism." The usual people were the same back then as today, liberals, Communist Party USA, National Council of la Raza. MEChA, Party of Liberation and Socialism, MALDEF, A*N*S*W*E*R* Coalition, etc.
    Harold Ezzel was forced to resign.

    Any time the federal government tries to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws, your going to hear the same people yelling racism. We see the same thing in Maricopa County, Arizona. You have an elected and popular Sheriff upholding the oath of office he took and is doing what the vast majority of Americans demand, enforce our laws and he's called a racist by the radical left.

    When government stops lying to the American people and actually starts securing our borders and start enforcing our immigration laws that are on the books and you start hearing the word "racism" being yelled by the left, you know the government is doing their job.
