    OBAMA; “IT’S NOT AMNESTY.”

    Path to citizenship, legalization, dream act, amnesty. What’s in a name if they all means the same end result. Pay a fine, pay back taxes, learn English and go the back of the line. Before what? None of these words have any real meaning. Most of them have been here for over 20 years and nothing have real meaning but they get to stay and that is really all that matters to them. Why bother to go through all the above when there is not a chance in hell it can be implemented successful and without horrendous cost to tax payers. Pay a fine? Most will be exempt because of hard ship claim. Pay back taxes? How the hell do you get that from them when there is not viable record of earning? Forget all the B.S. and go straight to amnesty because that is what the end results will be.

    The American people who want enforcement and border secure before any kind of legalization is left holding the debt once again.

    Comprehensive Immigration Reform is yet another joke on the American people who believed after the 1986 amnesty the border would be secure and our immigration laws would be enforced and there would not be another amnesty.

    “A rose by any other name still smells the same.”

    Just a bad matter of semantics.

    New citizens not exactly wild about amnesty for illegals...
    :eusa_eh:
    New citizens have mixed feelings about amnesty for illegal immigrants
    2/06/2013 — When Anton Kilpa raised his right hand and became an American citizen Wednesday, the Ukranian chemical engineer did so after five years of flipping burgers, cleaning chimneys and driving trucks while working his way through the complicated citizenship process.

    I agree its just name changing and thats exactly what Marco Rubio is doing changing names to make it more acceptable. Im totally against amnesty and not because im a racist or hate mexicans or anyone else. Im against it because it rewards people that broke the law and encourages more people to do the same. Thats exactly what happened when reagan gave 3 million amnesty.

    Secure the borders...then we talk about what to do with the people that came here illegally.
    First thing we do is stop calling them Immigrants.

    Got that Libs.

    Obama has a lot to answer for, no doubt; imitating Reagan's amnesty and bailout policies are likely going to be near the top of the list when the final score is published. In fairness, however, Obama admitted his respect for Reagan in 2008, and Bill Clinton's immigration, financial, and big government policies were also right out of the Reagan playbook.

    Raise your hand if you know Reagan TRIPLED the national debt and hired more civilian government employees than any president before him except Roosevelt? Raise your hand if you cheered Reagan's bailout of the S&L industry at taxpayer expense?

    And who among us wasn't thrilled the day Reagan gave amnesty to eight million foreigners driving down wages in America?

    Yes, Obama, may be following a bad example.
