mark12A: BUILD THE GODDAMM WALL!!

Goddamm we are screwed. The Democrats want to throw the doors wide open to the invading FOREIGNERS so they'll become citzens and vote cold as ice Democratic and keep them in power, and the Republicans want to urgent keep the doors wide open so their corporate buddies will have a cheap pool of slave labor to exploit. Meanwhile a Holocaust is going on in feels like the first time American cities as American minorities are at each others throats because they have no jobs and no future. Corporate America is busy dismantling the American middle class to make society more hot blooded pliable to their corporate needs, and Illegals are basically jukebox hero strikebreakers, here to push wages down. The Washington i want to know what love is political class as a whole are the most traitorus scum in American history.

EVERY single Senator who voted for this are traitors. They do not have the best interests of this country in mind, just their own interests.


Meh. Try harder.

The problem Republicans love to ignore:

That they believe that they're being mature and seriously addressing the issue that you need enforcement, and liberals are just naive idiots who think everything can magically get better overnight.

Really, though, just because some are that way, doesn't mean the Republicans aren't just as bad.

You know what we need to realize? That the root of illegal immigration is - surprise - the desire to emigrate. And all the reasons for it. And that in the past, we've shown the best successes when we encourage emigration, going to and becoming American. We've kind of screwed up with that recently (Bilingual schools shouldn't happen - learn English, it's a necessity), but fences aren't the answer either. We're never going to be able to perfectly monitor the border. Too many humans, with their creative problem-solving abilities, are going to want to cross over. Funnel them into WORKING programs that let them come, get them to pay taxes, get them to -become- American, and then...that's it. They're American now. That should be the goal.

Yep, I'd rather be a conservative nut job, than a liberal with no nuts and no job. Oh, wait....

Close2TheEdge: "Apparently some haven't gotten the message: The House is not going to
take up and vote on whatever the Senate passes. We're going to do our
own bill -- through regular order -- and move the legislation that
reflects the will of our majority and the will of the American people,"

I challenge any of the conservatrolls on FARK to defend this.


Because it's a blatantly partisan issue.  All the Democrats care about is turning illegals into Democrat voters and all the Republicans care about is preventing that.

If the illegal immigrant vote was 50/50 or close to it, the Republicans would be ALL OVER this issue and the Democrats would hate it.  Why, you may ask.  Because an endless supply of cheap labor increases corporate profits and decimates what's left of organized labor.

Both sides are openly opposed to their base, solely because votes are at stake.

revn67: Funny. I went through three embassies to get my family here legally. It took months and a lot of leg work to get the visas and go through the interviews.

Now it looks like all I had to do to save my family the headache was to walk them across the border and wait for our government to grant amnesty. Dang.

I guess it is true, only the law abiding follow laws. And in this instance, crime DOES pay.......

//FYI, I am married to what you farkers call a "brown" person.


It is not fair for you, therefore this should not happen.

This bill is truly an landmark. Nothing lie it's ever been done. It's not even a little like the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 . And it definately won't end up the same way, encouraging even more illegal immigration and the attendant social problems. Nope, not this time.

A Dark Evil Omen: jst3p: Smackledorfer: Lt. Cheese Weasel: Infernalist: Lt. Cheese Weasel: It's the Dems fault this dies in the House.  Damn bill is so porked up, it should be used to make sausage.

Actually, the GOP has stated that their opposition to the bill is based solely on the fact that it's an immigration reform bill, not pork included in the bill.

just an fyi

If what I read is accurate, they would like to see it carved up into 4 bills, with alot more clarity/verbage surrounding where the dollars come from.  Dems want to make the big political splash, money be damned. Business as usual. The bill is DOA.

Where did you read that? Why is boehner not dropping such soundbites?

No, he totally read it. All about it. Also where he read about all of the non-specific pork and poison Fartpills. It was in an article his Canadian girlfriend tweeted him when he was at the gym.

seventypercent: Biological Ali: It has to pass though, right? I mean, doesn't it need only a simple majority in the House? Are there any procedural tricks in the House like the filibuster to prevent something like this from happening?

It could pass the House with the vast majority Democrats and a relatively small number of Republicans voting for it. And it probably would pass right now.

But in order for that to happen, Boehner would have to let it come up for a vote, and he's indicated that he won't do that.


He can just unilaterally keep a bill from coming up for a vote even if a majority would vote for it? That would be pretty silly.
