When Ronald Reagan implemented his infamous 1986 Amnesty for 3 million illegal aliens (called "Rodinos", because one of the principal backers of the bill was Peter J. Rodino, of New Jersey), Reagan promised there would never be another amnesty. Reagan basically said, "I hate to do this, but this is a one-time fix; we are going to stiffen immigration laws and protect the borders..This will never happen again". Twenty-seven years later, more Republicans, now led by McCain and Rubio, are saying THE SAME THING Reagan said. Only this time, it's ELEVEN MILLION illegal aliens seeking pathway to citizenship....... with millions more 'knocking on the door'. The 'word' of the GOP, and its leadership, means absolutely NOTHING to me now.

Do you even have a clue what happened in 1986 when Reagan made that deal? Somehow I doubt it or you wouldn't have made the stupid comment you did. Reagan was promised that if he signed the bill the Democrats would enforce immigration laws.
BUT, Democrats being the liars they are, and always have been, as soon as Reagan was done signing the bill they reneged on their part of the deal.

Andy: So the very fact that a Repub says the right thing becomes your excuse to say he is lying? With that attitude, we'll never get ANY problems solved. Somebody NEEDS to say the right thing. Obviously we hope that is followed up with the right action....but that has to involve Democrats too. Right now, we have a POTUS who will not enfoce existing law and has sued the state of AZ for doing so.

That is what happens when you compromise with democrats. The democrats NEVER keep up their end of a compromise.

Perhaps this newest wave of amnestized illegals will be called "McCains" or "Rubios".

I will never vote for another GOP candidate. The Democrats, at least you pretty much know what you're getting. The worst kind of deception, and talking from both sides of the mouth, has come from the GOP.

Obama wants to spread citizenship as much as he wants to spread our wealth. And why not, since he thinks there is nothing exceptional about America?

GOP: Political cowards.

President Obama has wrapped up his $1.6 million campaign event immigration reform speech in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Now is the time for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform," Obama said.

Piggybacking off of a bipartisan immigration reform plan presented by eight Senators yesterday, Obama called on Congress to quickly come up with legislation.

"We can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in endless debate," Obama said. "For the first time in years, Republicans and Democrats seem ready to attack this problem together."

Although Obama focused on further enforcement as a top priority for reform,...
