The gang of eight is trying hard to justify the millions of aliens given amnesty. We ask if they should be allowed to give you no information, and expect you to give them amnesty.
Obama's administration is advancing its plan by ignoring the Constitution, bypassing Congress and ignoring the American people.
Marco Rubio in his senate campaign, said "I will never support-never have and will never support-any effort to grant blanket legislation, amnesty to folks who have entered or stayed in this country illegally."
He said he would not grant amnesty unless the border is secure.
In a speech at a dinner of La Raza (the Race), Lindsey Graham remarkably said: "We're going to tell the bigots to shut up", regarding amnesty. So, if you are against amnesty, you are a bigot.
John McCain has been an amnesty advocate in his career, except when he is running for office. When forced to make a stand on a fence, he said he would build a "goddamned fence."
The bill is out, and it legalizes most of the 11-18, actually 30 million or more, illegals before any enforcement provisions kick in. Rubio doesn't deny it. As far as the 11-18 million illegals, that is an estimate. It is in fact, much closer to 30 million. Nobody knows how many illegals are here now. Nobody has been counting them. A "pig in a poke" comes to mind. Do you think we should know how many illegals are in the country, before we open the floodgates?
Marco Rubio has always been against illegal aliens, hasn't he? It turns out, he has not. In the senate he has voted ambiguously, or for illegal aliens. He talks a good talk, but his votes are for the illegal aliens.
Twenty million are here, looking for work. But, they are just Americans. The gang of eight doesn't care about the twenty million. The twenty million have to find their jobs on their own. There is nobody trying to find work for them.
Let's try to guess the cost. The estimate is from Robert Rector, the Heritage Foundation. It's a whopping $6.3 TRILLION. That's $6.3 TRILLION, not Billion. We have to take his word for it, because the gang of eight has never given an estimate of what it will cost. In fact, his estimate may be low.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO have ironed out their differences. Thomas J. Donohue is president of the Chamber. Perhaps at one time the Chamber was looking out for you, but this is not the Chamber of old. He is the sixth highest paid lobbyist in the country. He's been known to remark "show me the money". He is busy trying to bring in illegal aliens.
The AFL-CIO has deep pockets, also, and is intent on making money from illegal aliens.
Ira Mehlman, communications director of the group, Federation for American Immigration Reform, remarked about the Catholic Bishops:
"What the bishops are saying , essentially, is that other people are going to have to sacrifice their jobs, their children's educational opportunities because the Catholic Church is placing the interests of illegal immigrants ahead of those who are legitimately here in the United States."
"Well, there it is.....it doesn't matter that our immigration laws say that 'aiding and abetting' the illegal alien is a crime, the Catholic Church is saying it doesn't need to follow those laws. The Catholic Church also doesn't care about the rights of the honest, hard-working American who dutifully honor the 'rule of law' which is the foundation of this country, while the Catholic Church does not!"
"What about the dignity of ordinary Americans citizens to be free from the massive illegal alien incursion that is crushing our country. Balkanizing our neighborhoods, overwhelming and degrading our schools, medical facilities, and most importantly, our quality of life? Clearly, the Catholic Church has declared itself ABOVE and BEYOND the LAW!"

Opposition to S. 744 has more than 150 conservatives and Tea Party leaders and immigration officer unions, including several Fox News contributors.
The gang of eight has been secretive, stirring up suspicion, and it is hard to guess just what they have in store. The bill is over 1,000 now, from 744. Some more has been added to the bill, from 744. One wonders why more was added; didn't they get enough benefits for the illegals? In any case, it is hard to think they are going to knuckle down on the illegals. They haven't yet.
It is coming down to a question of not knowing whether the border is safe. Rubio seems to think it is. Enter the cartels. Jack Riley, head of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Chicago, told the AP that today the push for the drug supply is "probably the most serious threat the United States has faced from organized crime." Riley also said "People think, the border's 1,700 miles away. This isn't our problem. Well, it is. These days we operate as if Chicago is on the border".
Do you still think you are safe in the United States?
