    Conservatives Only -- Are you for the Gang of 8 Immigration Bill?

    I heard a commercial on the radio the other day that discussed the immigration bill and applauded the conservatives for "moving the country forward" by approving of this bill. How many conservatives here on DP are for this bill?

    I am not!!!!!
    This will be another fiasco like 1986.

    There aren't enough jobs for our own citizens let alone
    millions more!

    I wish they would use E-Verify for all employers.
    And Perp walk the businessmen who refuse to follow the law!

    One has to wonder why our elected politicians are doing something so destructive to our country. Americans don't owe our jobs, country and resources to foreigners. We should take care of our own first, our elderly, our sick, our children.

    From what I know about it, I think it's fine but I doubt it can be strictly enforced. I support border security but I also think there are good humanitarian reasons to open the opportunity for legal residency.

    An insult to those who took the time and expense to do it legally. Why bother, when you can have it handed to you on a silver platter with all the fringes attached.....
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Those are RINO's they were speaking of, and I'm very disappointed in Marco Rubio.

    I do not support any immigration reform bill that contains amnesty,pathway to citizenship, work permits, dream acts or any other form of amnesty. Because what will happen is that any enforcement measures will be revoked or neutered once the 12-20 millions have legal status.
    "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"

    I support it as long as it has definitive metrics in place in terms of border security and enforcement that must be met prior to any path way to citizenship begins for those here illegally. And those definitive metrics should not be largley subjective things that the "Executive Branch" gets to decide are met or not.

    Oh **** them. They're selling their own country out to get votes and don't care what damage is done by it. They aren't moving the country forward, they're adding a crippling hindrance.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    a large portion of those who do it "legally" do so through kickbacks to local officials. People shouldn't be able to "buy" their way to citizenship. That is just as big of a fiasco as those who come here illegally.
