    Gimme my check and MAYBE I'll vote for you. The 47% Romney got caught being truthful about just making sure everyone knows THEY WANT THEY CHECK!!! Worthless parasites feeding on a host for their refrigerator full of food and electricity to run it and cable tv, milk and eggs delivered to the door, etc. etc. I say drug test welfare recipients first. A good half of it's rolls would drop off immediately.

    " I say drug test welfare recipients first. A good half of it's rolls would drop off immediately."
    Florida did it, and the program didn't save enough money to pay for itself.
    The number of failing test was miniscule. It turns out that welfare recipients generally can't afford to do drugs.

    And it's too bad a strongly held opinion can be just as wrong as any other.
    You should think more, and gather more actual information before you opine.

    These so called "New Americans" are simply Illegal's. To in any way suggest they are American is a pipe dream by these two Mexican Activists. These people arrived by sneaking over the border or overstaying their visa's. They then produced the new crop of "New American" children who found out about and enjoy the joys of entitlements. Mom and Dad may have wanted to work, the kiddies don't. Until some push is made to secure the border, a regulation is made and abided by to restrict any new citizen from being on the dole for 10 years and some form of reparation is made to the US for services given, no deal. These people, who broke our laws, need to face the exact same punishment they would if they were American citizens crossing into Mexico to live and work.

    How about all the people here who are prison for fraud, and identity theft being released immediately. If it is ok for a felony illegal it should be ok for a legal citizen??????????

    No. While I do support immigration reform of some type, views like those expressed here are predicated on dishonesty,coercion and intimidation. If immigration reform will "turn undocumented immigrants into legal workers and citizens" they must by definition then be illegal immigrants at this time. They are not "the new Americans" but foreigners who broke the law to come here and continue to break our laws each day they remain. This is not the way our immigrant ancestors came here, sneaking in illegally until their numbers were so vast that they could strong arm a "pathway to citizenship" and it is no way for any "aspiring citizen" to behave. Why should such dishonesty and lack of respect for our laws and political system be rewarded with citizenship?

    I'll believe this is just about illegal immigration when we start discussing a wall on the Canadian border.

    @drpeeper AHAHAHAHA. You know squat about Canada. Canada had to develop picture ID health cards to keep the americans out. Look at the health statistics over the last half century (assuming you can do a read and understood).

    I have solved immigration. When I worked at a company back in the day, I knew there were a number of Chinese and Indians working there that were doing so illegally on tourist visas. Company knew (major oil field services company). So I got to thinking. Those illegals were paying taxes, learning the language, adopting the culture because a person working and making a income they can live on needs to do those things. Then you have the uneducated masses shipped up from Mexico and wherever, making nothing they can really live on, not learning the language, not assimilating into the culture, and being told they don't have to and they get involved in terrorist groups like La Raza to hate America. So the first group are worth a crap and the second are pieces of crap. Let's legalize those who are worth a crap and deport the pieces of crap. NO Amnesty.

    Can we also get rid of the "pieces of crap" that were born here?
    The ones that cannot pass a citizenship test? The ones milking the welfare system?

    @Fishbone345 - Do you mean the largest percentage of welfare recipients, residing in southern red states? Good idea, but where are we going to send them? I don't think anyone else wants them either.
  • #112

    @Denizen_Kate Yep. The ones that live in states that consistently place behind certain other states in test scores, graduation rates and college placement. You know the ones I'm talking about, the ones that want fairy tales taught as reality in classrooms.

    "Aspiring citizens"? Who says they aspire for citizenship. Did they go though the process like the rest of the immigrants? The second I read this, I know the rest is pure garbage. The problem is people like the authors who want to disregard flagrant illegal activity for whatever motives. The problem is politicians who know votes equal money equals money etc etc etc. If presented with a vote on whether to let the illegals get amnesty, the people would vote no. So what really is their point in this erroneous op-Ed?

    They would go away if we rounded them up and FORCED them to leave. Funny how so many people speak out against us being bullies on the global stage, but we're too afraid to be a "bully" within our own borders.

    Illegal means illegal. Aliens here now have broken the law. They have no right o protest anything. Thye sdhould be grateful we don't go out and arrest them enmass at these whining protests. There needs to be a law where ALL employers have to check a centralized database to see if a perspective employee is here legally. AND THE SOUTHERN BORDER NEEDS TO BE DEFENDED! SEND THE NATIONAL GUARD DOWN THERE.

    "By its vote, the Senate embraced this new wave of American energy that will spark our nation to reinvent itself and grow". Yes, grow and reinvent ourselves right into a third world country.

    Nope, show that the borders are secure and the laws are being enforced FIRST, and then I would consider supporting immigration reform. We tried this back in 1986, it was passed on the "promise" that borders would be secured. That didn't happen and as a result, the illegals continued to run rampant. Enforce the borders and current laws first, and make the illegals go to the back of the line, behind those who came here legally, then I can get behind immigration reform, until then, no way in Hell.

    The "clenched fist" is a perfect image for what Republicans seem to stand for. In my opinion, it is very unlikely that they will be reaching out to anyone other than those who embrace their increaingly radical right-wing philosophy!

    America's promise is to be like a quilt of many colors. Those who don't appreciate the nations great diversity will fall away under the weight of their racial prejudices which many of them attempt to disguise as concern for what is legal.

    America started its decline once they adopted your PC drivel of a "quilt" or "mosaic" metaphor for immigration instead of a melting pot. When different metals are mixed in a melting pot, they produce an alloy with far superior properties, the same as our society.

    @JackinVienna
    Human beings of different colors if "melted" with other colors will produce dominant colors which is why the idea of a "melting pot" has been rejected by the majority except for inclusion of certain races that look like them.

    @WMCOL Rejected by progressive liberals and their allies in academia and in the media. That does not make it true. You show your true racist intents, since all you see in the melting pot is a change in color.

    One only has to look at the successful integration model of American immigration during the late 19th and the first 65 yrs of the 20th century. Immigrants from different countries, many of which were historical enemies became integrated into and embraced American culture within a generation or two. They prospered and loved their country. This was long before guaranteed social benefits and other "press 1 for English" immigration reforms. This melting pot culture resulted in the country going from a backwater country to the economic and military superpower of the world. It did this naturally, by incorporating the best aspects of each culture, while at the same time minimizing the worst elements of each culture. These changes occurred through natural equilibrium, not fostered through ham handed social engineering experiments.

    What we have seen after the change to the "quilt" model is divisiveness and balkanization...not just in America, but in every western country that has adopted this model. These societies, which have thrived and produced the highest living standards in the history of the world are being destroyed from the inside. For what? So progressives can feel good about themselves?

    I find it ironic that the left which makes straw man arguments of "separate but equal" policies in every aspect of American life and fights them at every turn would make a "separate but equal" argument in support of our immigration model.

    Race is very relevant in terms of a melting pot, which was the suggestion for what works.

    "...independent analysts agree this type of immigration fix will grow our economy, reduce the federal budget deficit, raise the wage ladder for all U.S. workers and create new jobs by turning undocumented immigrants into legal workers and citizens...." eliminate hair loss, reduce obesity, and cure the common cold.

    Amazing how the administration has made it appear there are only the poor down and out mexicans crossing the border to find a better life.One would think the korans found at the border were left their by mexicans practicing islam .One would wonder why distress signs are printed along the boarder in chinese,arabic and spanish.In reality the administration could care less who is crossing the boarder and for what reason.They have done a great job leading some to believe it is only mexicans .

    I don't know, maybe I'm too old and too cynical, but when I'm told "if only we do this, things will be better" I keep remembering a number of things like "if we put railroad ties on our cars front bumpers it will be cheaper to fix them and insurance rates will drop", and lots of other similar tales of woe. I guess I've become a 'doubting Thomas' in my old age.

    rewarding illegal aliens with citizenship for their crimes is not common sense. we have already seen this failure. common sense would be holding all to enforce the laws we have now without exception,they all need to show some good faith that they will enforce laws instead of trying to sell us new ones we all know they will go against later.

    not to leave out the millions of greencards they want to issue out to finish off or cripple our already falling job market. they mention this many jobs, yet never say if that many citizens filled those jobs or if they all went to imports brought here to do those jobs which does not help citizens in any way. the way i see it no job counts unless a citizen fills it.

    The only people facing a "clenched fist" in 2014 will be the hard left and the amnesty pushers.

    Dear Illegals: F off, we're full.

    No! Huge mistake!
    Immigration "reform" is the latest bandaid on the wounds caused by pseudo-progressive social engineering. Specifically the minimum wage law and elaborate welfare system for citizens. That created an underground human trafficking, worse gang and drug culture, crime, and permanent poverty class (of both citizens and illegals).
    Abolish the minimum wage and move welfare cases to state family courts instead (IRS should enforce new system of surtaxes and fines on the relatives of the citizen needy kin).
    Only then will the underclass shrink and middle class grow again.
