Do 1 and 2 and there will be no need for number 3.
“The president's making this harder and harder every day for us to try to deal with this in a responsible way," Boehner said. And you and your amnesty loving Republicans in the House leadership share in the blame as well. The new spirit of "permisos" has the fingerprints of way too many Republicans as well. All this talk of legalization that Boehner and the rest of his GOP cohorts in Congress are throwing around has certainly contributed to the problem.

The 'Obama Brand' in Crisis

If only this were true. What evidence do you have that the parasites at the top or the bottom are about to lose power and entitlements? If anything their hold on power and entitlements seems ever more secure.

Not really. He is currently facilitating the massive importation of future Democratic voters -- and the Republicans in office can barely muster a peep.
"Democrats pushed back, however, claiming that stipulations in DACA and the Senate’s immigration bill wouldn’t even apply to the recent surge of illegal immigrants. Rather, the conditions in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras must be so dire (and somehow drastically different than in the recent past), they are simply coming to the U.S. looking for a safe haven." The bottom line is that if the would-be-immigrants knew there was little to no chance of successfully staying in the United States they wouldn't spend the money, suffer the hardship, and endure the risk of leaving everything behind and trekking north on the journey -- regardless of how bad the conditions are in their home country.
"If Republicans truly want to stop Obama, they must refuse to keep playing the Democrats’ game." One problem -- the Republicans (most of the ones in power anyways) don't want to stop Obama.. This recent wave of illegals are future cheap labor for their donors to enjoy. The Republicans should be out forcefully challening Obama on this disaster and yet we hear little more than crickets. Hello Rep[ublicans, anyone home? Anyone manning the store?

Amnesty Lite Is Still Amnesty

"House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor -- thinks that amnesty is not amnesty if you call it "immigration reform" and toss in some fig-leaf requirements before the amnesty kicks in." Actually, most of the fig leaf requirements are not required until after the amnesty / legalization kicks-in -- making those fig leaf requirements even less likely to occur.

So true, and such short term thinking. The immigrants that these COC types lobby for today will be the electorate of tomorrow that votes in politicians hostile to business. At least unless you have the crony capitalist connections to navigate the heavily regulated business climate. Think about the business climate of California in the 1960's and 1970's with Ronald Reagan as Governor. Now contrast that with what you have there now. What caused it all? Decades of uncontrolled largely 3rd world immigration that swung a moderately conservative state into a leftist utopia.

"Amnesty is not some esoteric concept. It means that you are not going to be punished for breaking the law" I couldn't agree more. And if you want to get technical, deportation is really amnesty since it doesn't actually punish the lawbreaker with fines or imprisonment -- it merely returns the illegal to their rightful place of origin . What these open border zealots really want is far worse than amnesty -- not only do they want little or no punishment for the lawbreaker, they also want to reward the lawbreaker with legal title to their ill-gotten good. If we applied this same starndard to other crimes such as car theft we would be handing out pink slips to the criminals that stole the cars. Do you think that might result in more car thefts? But since we have the wonderful record of the 1986 amnesty -- which both supporters and opponents universally called an amnesty, we will use the term amnesty as it was used then. Amnesty is giving legal status to those that are here illegally even if you toss in a few easily circumvented requirements and fines to conceal the legalization.

Thank you Dr. Sowell, THANK YOU!!!! You have painstakenly described better than anyone else why amnesty has absolutely nothing to do with citizenship -- it's all about the legalization. And why those that try to confuse and obfuscate with the red herring of citizenship are only trying to conceal their support for amnesty.

Wrong Lessons from Cantor Defeat

No-Way-Jose Wrote: Jun 13, 2014 7:28 AM
Once again Chavez is delusional. Cantor's immigration scorecard was skewed from his "evolving" position on the subject. In other words, his past votes didn't match up with where he was moving on the subject but they stil influenced his scorecard. Cantor expressely supported amnesty "for the kids" (make sure you wipe a tear from your face as you emphasize the kids) and also the House immigration principles which advocates for amnesty for all illegals. Like all GOP amnesty proponents he tried to conceal his soft position with various veneers and tangled language, but the people of his district saw right through the charade. More than anything Eric Cantor was a man of his benefactors -- and with almost complete unanmity the corporate crony capitlaists want an amnesty and vast increases in legal immigration to ensure cheap compliant labor. And this is why Cantor's position was evolving. Far more than any other issue, Cantor's opponent, made this election about immigration -- this is not even debateable. And your skewed polls purporitng widespread amnesty support can't change that fact.
