Gang of Eight Senators Reach Bipartisan Deal on Immigration Reform


Oh Boy … Gang of Eight reach bipartisan deal on immigration reform.

The Gang of Eight, Sens. John McCain (AZ-R), Lindsey Graham (SC-R), Marco Rubio (FL-R) and Democrats Dick Durbin (IL-D), Chuck Schumer (NY-D), and Bob Menendez (NY-D), have reportedly reached a bipartisan outline of a deal that would overhaul immigration in the United States. One of the tenants of the immigration reform is to “create a tough but fair path to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants currently living in the United States that is contingent upon securing our borders and tracking whether legal immigrants have left the country when required.”

From the Politico:

A powerful group of senators from both parties has reached a deal on the outlines of a comprehensive immigration overhaul, a development that will drive an emotional debate on a hot-button issue unseen in Washington for more than half a decade.

The group unveiled the basics of its proposal at a Monday news conference on Capitol Hill, essentially laying down a marker on the issue one day before President Barack Obama heads to Las Vegas to unveil more details about his own immigration proposal.

According to a five-page document provided to POLITICO, the sweeping proposal — agreed to in principle by eight senators — would seek to overhaul the legal immigration system as well as create a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s roughly 11 million illegal immigrants. But establishing that pathway would depend on whether the U.S. first implements stricter border enforcement measures and new rules ensuring immigrants have left the country in compliance with their visas. Young people brought to the country as children illegally and seasonal agriculture industry workers would be given a faster path to citizenship.

So two RINO’s, a Cuban-American wannabe 2016 presidential candidate and three liberals have come together to pave the way for immigration reform. Who just got a queasy feeling in their stomach? Sorry, but immigration reforms begins at closing the border, PERIOD!!! Until this is done, there should be nothing and I mean nothing to pave the way for illegals to get US citizenship. The closing of the US border should be done for national security purposes, let alone keeping illegals out. We have seen these types of promises from the LEFT before under Ronald Reagan. He granted amnesty with the promise from the LEFT to later protect the borders and guess what, it never happened. I will believe this when I see it. If the GOP actually think they are going to receive the Hispanic vote for passing immigration reform they are sorely mistaken.

      This bill WILL pass because fortune 500 companies want to import highly skilled workers instead of employing our citizen graduates. They make it sound like an imigration bill but it’s really a jobs bill for foreign grad students (absolutely the best kind of temp worker ever invented) Illegal imigration is just a sideshow. E-verify sounds great but I doubt it will ever be fully implemented due to exemptions, but I guarantee Babu and his friends ARE coming

      Ryan open to ‘earned citizenship’
      January 29, 2013
      Ryan believes a bill that offers immigrants the option of an “earned citizenship” is likely to gain some traction in Congress. Ryan says it’s just not viable to round up the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the country, and changes are needed “to get this system working because it works for nobody.”

      Would this gang and eight be advocating to provide a pathway to citizenship for eleven million Muslims who chose to bypass established legal procedures for entering the United States? In other words … a pathway to destroy the American Way from within.

      A Pandora’s box is being open in regards to amnesty for illegals from Mexico. A precedence is being established. All nationalities are going to be demanding equal treatment.

      Also … think about those worldwide waiting in line attempting to enter the country through the legal process. They are now placed behind eleven million illegals. What an ultimate betrayal for doing right.

      Rubio blasts Obama for resistance to border security provision in immigration plan
      Published January 29, 2013

      Hours before President Obama is set to deliver a major immigration speech, a key Republican senator blasted the president for reportedly opposing a requirement to shore up border security before legalizing up to 11 million illegal immigrants.

      This crew should be trusted about as far as they could collectively throw the White House. RINOs and Democrat/socialists all.

      The border needs to be closed for a period of two years prior to any consideration of any other immigration issues. If they are at all serious about anything in this plan, this should be number one.

      TED CRUZ
      United States Senator for Texas

      WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) issued the following statement regarding today’s bipartisan immigration reform proposal:

      I appreciate the good work that senators in both parties have put into trying to fix our broken immigration system. There are some good elements in this proposal, especially increasing the resources and manpower to secure our border and also improving and streamlining legal immigration. However, I have deep concerns with the proposed path to citizenship. To allow those who came here illegally to be placed on such a path is both inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly unfair to the millions of legal immigrants who waited years, if not decades, to come to America legally.

      Another Executive Order on the Horizon?

      Obama: ‘Now’s the time’ for immigration reform
      Published January 29, 2013

      Administration officials said they were encouraged to see the Senate backing the same broad principles. In part because of the fast action on Capitol Hill, Obama does not plan to send lawmakers formal immigration legislation.

      However, officials said the White House does have legislation drafted and could fall back on it should the Senate process stall.

      Anything these guys propose is worthless because they will not do the right thing. When push comes to shove, they all crumble like a box of crackers.

      The only way to get our country secure and free of illegals is to stop all immigration for a period of three years. During that time there should be an effort to find all of those who have overstayed a visa and get them deported. The other effort is to close all the borders with additional fencing, manpower and using drones to provide the security. Those found crossing illegally should be made to work a chain gang for not less than five years. When this message gets out we will have a lot fewer people to deal with on a day to day basis.

      all illegals past and present should have to pay at least half a million just for the chance to become a citizen. and if you don’t check out, you just lose your money. this should take care of obama’s stupid healthcare. i really hope the democrat smokers are loving that they may have to pay an extra 5 thousand for their insurance.
      you get what you pay for democrats and you paid for a fraud.

      Marco Rubio, The Immigration Reform Savior or Fraud?
      January 28, 2013

      “I am strongly against amnesty. The most important thing we need to do is enforce our existing laws. We have existing immigration laws that are not being adequately enforced. Nothing will make it harder to enforce the existing laws, if you reward people who broke them.

      It demoralizes people who are going through the legal process, its a very clear signal of why go through the legal process, if you can accomplish the same thing if you go through the illegal process. And number two, if demoralizes the people enforcing the laws. I am not, and I will never support any effort to grant blanket legalization/amnesty to folks who have entered, stayed in this country illegally.”

      Marco Rubio, March 2009
