Momentum Builds for U.S. Immigration Reform Plan

Will Dunham, Chicago Tribune, November 11, 2012

Two U.S. senators launched a fresh move to put together a bipartisan immigration reform plan on Sunday, restarting talks on a proposal that includes a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country.

{snip}

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Democratic Senator Charles Schumer said he and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham have agreed to resume talks on immigration reform that broke off two years ago.

“And I think we have a darned good chance using this blueprint to get something done this year. The Republican Party has learned that being … anti-immigrant doesn’t work for them politically. And they know it,” Schumer said.

{snip}

Speaking on the CBS program “Face the Nation,” Graham said the tone and rhetoric used by members of his party on immigration “built a wall between the Republican Party and the Hispanic community.”

{snip}

The Graham and Schumer plan has four components: requiring high-tech, fraud-proof Social Security cards to ensure that illegal workers cannot get jobs; strengthening border security and enforcement of immigration laws; creating a process for admitting temporary workers; and implementing a path to legal status for immigrants already in the country.

Schumer said the plan embraces “a path to citizenship that’s fair, which says you have to learn English, you have to go to the back of the line, you’ve got to have a job, and you can’t commit crimes.”

Graham added, “Sixty-five percent of the people in the exit poll of this election supported a pathway to citizenship.”

{snip}

The Obama administration announced in June it would relax U.S. deportation rules so that many young illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children can stay and work. The change would allow illegal immigrants who, among other criteria, are younger than 30 years old and have not been convicted of a felony to apply for work permits.

    Lindsey Graham has been peddling his open borders, amnesty treason for years now. I
    only pray this traitor, and others who push the same poison are held
    accountable for their crimes against White humanity some day.

    • Bobby

      Thank you for mentioning this traitor. All I have to say for those South Carolinans that voted this freak in again is, YOU ARE GOING TO GET WHAT YOU SO RICHLY DESERVE.

        what part of not being defeatist did the last eight commenters not grasp?? PETITION YOUR LEADERS. Could not be easier nowadays. It is a right and a duty of a citizen. I’ve written asking for him to affirm the veracity of the quoted statement. And for god sake who gives a damn if he is homosexual, as long as I don’t have to hear about it.

        • IstvanIN

          who gives a damn if he is homosexual Actually it wouldn’t make a difference if he were pro-America but since he isn’t it makes one wonder: is he just another anti-white liberal or is he being blackmailed?

          • Bobby

            Yeah, Know, wer’e talking. Those ARE the relevant questions when it comes to this fool.

      • BannerRWB

        They are already getting it.  I lived north-west of Charleston some 30 years ago, and remember the area as being quite nice.  I passed through the area with my family about two years ago, and we stopped at a mall area near to where I had lived to pick up a couple items.  We were somewhat concerned at the high number of people (Hispanic day-worker types?) seemingly just hanging out on the walk areas, but after our children expressed a sense of fear upon entering the store, we just returned to our car and left the area.  Here’s a nice comment from Wiki: “According to the University of South Carolina’s – Consortium for Latino Immigration Studies, South Carolina’s foreign-born population grew faster than any other state between 2000-2005.”  Saying good-bye to the U.S. will be difficult because of what it used to be, not so much for what it is today, or will become in the future.

          Mexicans are all over SC now.  Graham was reelected after leading the pro-amnesty Republicans in the Senate.

          • Bobby

            So what does this mean in South Carolina, that South Carolinans are pro-amnesty?

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/NQHEAYZCMBOERHG2VZRDQ3YUSQ Felix

            If SC secedes from the union, as many other states are talking of doing, will they keep their mexicans and latinos (They do add such vibrant color to our pasty culture, don’t they?), or will they fob them off on the other states?

    • Puggg

      Lindsey Graham getting behind something is building momentum for something, but it’s not legislation.

      From what I hear.

      Tap, tap, tap your feet…

    • Bobby

      Now I just read that Schumer and Graham, are discussing Amnesty together.  Yep. But all I’d like to know is if they dined together in some Washington D.C. restuarant and if they did, did they play “golf” together after dinner? What a sick two party system.

  • JohnEngelman

    Expect the Republican Party to come around pretty quickly on immigration “reform.” The people Republican leaders care about benefit when a high rate of immigration depresses wages. 

    • nathan wartooth

      Well duh. 

      The Democrats will get votes and the Republicans get more money from big business. 

      They are both selling out our country for short term gains. 

  • Bobby

    That 10 dollar lawn care, that “cheap” child care, that “cheap”, fence, roofing job, plumbing, painting, etc.etc. is going to cost Americans bigtime. Now will come the true price of those services, as millions more will be saying gimme gimme gimme,etc.

    • America First

      “Cheap” is the right word for it.  Liberal relatives of mine have seen, up close, the quality of work the Mexicans do: sloppy, superficial, and worth what one pays.  They drink on the job when they can.  Even when the work appears to have been done right, you’re having it re-done within the year.  They simply do not have the same ethic or pride in their work that whites (and some northeast Asians) do. In my opinion, they are here to get a foothold, will stop working as soon as they can, and live off those that do.  I would never hire them to fix, remodel, replace or build anything of mine.

      • Bobby

        That’s pretty much how I characterize the illegal aliens in California, although some do try to do right. The problem is, too many don’t!! They have this attitude that, “Hey man, what’s the problem”,even when you point out something they screwed up on. And yes, there literally never seems to be a single illegal alien household that isn’t on some state aid in California, whether some members of the family are working or not. I repeat, Lindsay Graham getting re-elected was a gift to the Democrat Party and left, and South Carolinans are going to RICHLY DESERVE what is going to be coming at them. While working class people in South Carolina sweat and compete with illegal job destroying and wage destroying pay, Lindsay Graham will probably have retired with a FAT CHECK every month from his ENTITLEMENT, having “worked” in Government. Oh, excuse me, ENTITLEMENTS are what Republicans call tiny Social Security checks that people get who have done honest hard work their whole lives. Forgive me.

        • kjh64

           “Oh, excuse me, ENTITLEMENTS are what Republicans call tiny Social Security checks that people get who have done honest hard work their whole lives. Forgive me.”

          That is so true. You can serve 6 years in congress and get retirement and good medical insurance for life yet some elderly person gets a measley 800 dollars a month after working all their life and that’s an “entitlement” or some illegal Mexican cranks out 8 new “Americans” and that’s not an entitlement. One time, Rush “stupid” Limbaugh was saying that the family of the elderly should pay for their care. Really? How many families can afford to pay for hopitalizations etc. for their elderly parents/grandparents? Amazingly, Rush and these republicans are strangely silent on illegals or for it. They claim they want less government and lower taxes but what good are lower taxes when the public is forced to pay for all these illegals?

      • Yorkshireman.

        Your illegals actually work?? Ours in UK don’t, they just claim benefits, free housing, free total healthcare and, of course, free education. They did not have to sneak in, our left wing Labour government invited them in, by the million, just to expand their voting numbers. They are not actually classed as illegals, even though they were followed by many, many more. Especially Pakistanis.

    Here is a quote from Sen. Graham in an article from the weekend Financial Times, widely read by political and financial leaders.   

    “Senator Lindsey Graham, once a mild-mannered backer of bipartisan immigration laws, stressed this week that assimilation and an end to birthright citizenship would have to be cornerstones of any immigration reform.”

    Let’s ignore the platitude of, “assimilation” and try not to be defeatist about this statement, although Graham has proven rather malleable in the past to put it charitably.

    The article is notable for the naivete of the normally hard headed writer, Caldwell, in that he seems to think this would have a chance of a single vote in the democratic party, which has made it clear that nothing, absolutely nothing; national security, the decline of middle class wages, the environment, the ruination of the schools and healthcare systems, will come before their desperate efforts to change this country.

    Here is the link to the article:

    • Bobby

      Oh, sure. I’ve watched Graham play t his good cop, bad cop, routine for years, as he sells out European and other Americans by advocating the flooding of this country with millions upon millions of people–EVEN IN THIS ECONOMY. He is a TRAITOR AND A PHONY.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NQHEAYZCMBOERHG2VZRDQ3YUSQ Felix

      Lindsey, so often on his back with his heels in the air, can seldom take a tough stance on anything.

  • Tom_in_Miami

    Sounds fine except for the “implementing a path to legal status for immigrants already in the country” part.  Why should illegals be allowed to remain here?

    • IstvanIN

       Reward bad behavior and get more of it.  Simple human nature.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/NQHEAYZCMBOERHG2VZRDQ3YUSQ Felix

        Reward bad behavior and get more of it.O’ course, but guess what? Congress and our leaders in Washington to give a ****. With their cushy retirement packages, they’re insulated from the consequences of their actions.

        I am, sadly, starting to believe that making sure one’s leaders respect the anger of the masses might be a good thing.  The odd lynching or two, from time to time, of some wayward congressman or Senator might do wonders toward correcting their willingness to put the needs of special interests before those of their constituents.

  • IstvanIN

    You know, one final amnesty might not be such a bad idea if it included the following constitutional amendments: 1) English is the national language and no government services are to be provided in any other language; 2) Birth-right citizenship is ended, with strict and clear laws on who can be a citizen; 3) All immigration is ended for a period of not less than 50 years; 4) No refugees shall be admitted, ever; and 5) A secession procedure.

    • BannerRWB

      While such measures sound decent enough, I don’t believe they address the issue of race-replacement.  I would modify the guidelines thusly: 1) Institute Latin as the second language for all White nations, to be taught from pre-school along with the mother tongue for the given White ethno state; 2) Have strict and clear race-based citizenship laws, supported and enforced by a fourth branch of government that is not beholden to any other branch. (With this in place, some form of birth right citizenship may be okay); 3) Immigration to the U.S., in proportions, by White Europeans would be welcome in the effort to maintain a desired level of population; 4) We would take in White refugees, such as those from South Africa, and; 5) Sesession procedures could remain in place, but would hopefully not be needed.  Once you get down to a certain level of compartmentalization, such as race, ethnicity, or religion, we are going to reach a point beyond which separation may be difficult.  As things are currently in the U.S. though, it appears we have room for consideration.

      • http://twitter.com/Bison1776 Bison1776

        I’m not a white separatist like you.  But you make an interesting point about having a common second language.  I’ve always liked that idea for the United States, but I think it should be Spanish.  (And I say that as a Pat Buchanan-type conservative.)  Requiring all Americans to learn a common second language in school makes it that much more difficult for immigrant Persian/Indian/Chinese/Arab, etc., families to have their children learn Persian/Hindi/Mandarin/Arabic, etc., because that would now be a third language for them to learn instead of a second; losing the mother tongue would help assimilate them more into the American mainstream.  Granted, many can still learn three languages, but they won’t be as fluent than if they had to only learn two, or if they tried to be trilingual other school-age subjects would suffer as a consequence.  Also, common knowledge of Spanish would stop making the language a source of arguments between Hispanics and non-Hispanics because all Americans would know it; furthermore, proper written Spanish can be a real pain to learn correctly (so many irregular verbs and complex grammar) that it can be taught in a manner that both Hispanics and non-Hispanics will hate it.

    • The__Bobster

      There IS no such thing as a final amnesty. Each amnesty just begets another.

      This one could result in another 50-100 million new Democrats here. Thus, your points would become moot.

      • Bobby

        Ha,hahahahah……. no final amnesty. Kind of like controling illegal immigration by shrinkage or whatever that word phony Repubicans always use. Only where Republicans are talking about a policy of illegal immgration slowly going down, gradual amnesties of Democrats make it slowly go up…hahahahah……………. 

        • Guest

          I can’t believe Republicans are actually suckering into the the hype. European Americans still make up majority. At each step it can be overturned, but won’t

          • Bobby

            Republicans are as irrelevant to European-Americans as could possibly be. They want our taxes and sweat, they want our votes, and in the end they will do whatever the Democrat Party wants them to do. USELESS AS CAN BE. Time for a third political party, a nationalist party, that takes care of American citizens, not Coca Cola, Shell Oil, or Mexico’s problems,etc.

    • crystal evans

      Is there ever a final amnesty? I thought the 1986 amnesty was the last amnesty because Ronald Reagan was led to believe that by giving illegals amnesty would end illegal immigration. They were wrong.

    • kjh64

      “You know, one final amnesty might not be such a bad idea if it included the following constitutional amendments”

      Your others points are good but one final amnesty would be a disaster. We would have another 50 million who would pour in and vote for another amnesty.

      • IstvanIN

         The amnesty would be the bargaining chip for the constitutional amendments.  Of course I would prefer no amnesty and the amendments, but it appears the Republicans are willing to do for Obama what they wanted Romney to do for them.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/EY2Z5WYZ2BF6LUO6JZS4PKA34Q ∆Stacēē∆

    Why should they not go for the throat? The Republican Party is behind them now, and whites are too timid to make a move. Let the Democratic Party keep attacking, and use the “R” word until it no longer works anymore.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/EY2Z5WYZ2BF6LUO6JZS4PKA34Q ∆Stacēē∆

    I don’t see the Republican Party doing anything about it, so wouldn’t this be the perfect time to strike?
    Once they do come, however, I would like to see them settled in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Give those white democrats what they asked for, I say.

    • crystal evans

      The businessmen who support the Republican party are benefiting from illegal immigration. They are getting cheap labor from the illegals. I do not think legalization would make any difference to most illegals since they do not have the education or the skills to do anything else other than the work that they are doing now.

  • Mika12375

    Graham is a fool who needs to learn basic math.  The Latino vote is supposedly 10% of the available votes and the Democrats got 70%.  If 20 million illegals were to become citizens given the same voter profile as today I calculate the Republicans would have to obtain roughly 48% of all Latino votes to win election based on a shift in Latino vote, other things being equal.  Given the mentality of the Latino vote that is no better than wishful thinking.

    • crystal evans

      The Republican party needs to focus its attention on Asian Americans as opposed to trying to get more Latino votes. The only Latino voters that they will attract are the ones that are upwardly mobile. 

      • IstvanIN

         They need to focus on the countries real problems, the main one is unrestricted thrid world migration, legal and illegal.

      • SLCain

         No, they need to focus on whites, and to hell with all the minorities.

        • crystal evans

          Unfortunately, the white electorate was around 72% and shrinking. In order to survive, the Republican party needs to attract more people than evangelical Christians who are more interested in social issues than the economy and job creation. A lot of Hispanics are going to vote Democratic because of the gimme’s they can get. The only Hispanics that will vote Republican are Cubans and other upwardly mobile Hispanics. Asians have the education and income that whites have but they have never been approached by the Republican party.

          • NM156

            Asians voted 75% or so for Obama. With Asian success in America, their natural political allies are Republicans, but this high percentage indicates that Asians see themselves as allies with blacks and Hispanics.

          • SLCain

            As NM156 pointed out, it’s hard to imagine a demographic group that is already more naturally Republican than asians – middle class, stable families, hard workers, etc.  And yet, they went for Obama three-to-one.

            Anyway most asians live in overwhelmingly democratic stronghold states.  Pursuing their votes would be a complete waste of time and money – certainly in terms of electoral college votes, and probably even in terms of gaining seats in Congress.   As far back as 1998, the Republicans could not win a Senate seat in the heavily asian state of California, even with a chinese-american candidate, Matt Fong.

            The Republicans need to be a white party, or they won’t be much of any kind of party at all.

  • razorrare

    Just yesterday i heard Lindsey Graham comment that,”that American people dont want illegal immigration,they want legal immigration.”

    Legal Immigration allows for 100,000 black low i.q. third worlders with no skills to legally immigrate to America each month…this has been happening since about 1990…this equals around 1,200,000 per year…while illegal immigration is estimated at being around 500,000 per year. Which is worse? Do the numbers.

    • crystal evans

      We need to change our immigration focus from chain migration to one involving necessary skills. Australia and Canada allow immigrants into their countries who have the necessary skills that the country needs. The y do not allow unskilled workers other than refugees.

      • IstvanIN

        We do not need ANY immigrants.  We have enough unemployed and underemployed high skill/high IQ people and more than enough unskilled/low IQ people who need jobs as well.  We need an immigration moratorium.  Do we really want 500 million or even 1 billion in this country.  Just from a population standpoint we do not need anyone!

        • mobilebay

          Amen!

    • kjh64

      “Just yesterday i heard Lindsey Graham comment that,”that American people dont want illegal immigration,they want legal immigration.””

      The American people, most of them anyways, want legal immigration severely reduced. With the current economy and job shortages, we don’t need to be bringing in anybody. L. Graham is just being sneaky. He is for illegal immigration but knows now that it could politically hurt him as many people are more and more angry so basically what I’ll bet he will try is to “legalize” in a sneaky way, the illegals so it would be “legal” immigration ie. “guest worker program” instead of amnesty and it would be “legal.”

  • Rob

    Celinda Lake, Democrat strategist, said that about 80% of US latinos want gun laws of US to be as those in Mexico are; they want BIG GOVERNMENT with lots of goodies for them, they want their children taught by people WHO LOOK LIKE THEM, and it gets worse from there.
    The GOP is NOT our friend. Perhaps Jeff Sessions and a few others but overwhelmingly, WE ARE ALONE. Election night Obama told the UN that US wants the Small Arms Treaty talks to restart. The Democrats are serious about disarming White people. Ask yourself what they have in store for you.

    • dhs

      You bring up a good point about the UN’s gun confiscation polices coming to the U.S. The question is why didn’t the Romney campaign  use it. The liberals are opposed to guns in private hands, but it’s the one item that  virtually all non-liberals agree on. I think that if the Romney campaign had pushed this item, starting with the debates it would have made a significant difference.

      Obama would have been forced to be explicit about his anti-gun position, this would have gained him no votes. On the other hand, it would have  activated white gun lovers, who sat out the election or even voted Democrat, to vote for Romney.

      This tactic might have won the presidency for Romney.

  • NorthernWind

    Amnesty would be the coup de grace for the Republicans. You don’t usually participate in your own execution but the Republicans seem to be fond of doing exactly that. They are engaging in magical thinking as far as I can see.

    The Republican party deserves to die. In the end they are just as disgraceful as the democrats.

     I realize that some will say that my attitude is one of being a defeatist and that we should  and fight the good fight – to those I reply that we have lost period and the hoard against white people is growing in numbers significantly.  Things are going to get worse, quick.  The only way the Republicans can get the votes of the dark skins in the future is to give them more than the democrats give them with us whites paying for most of the giveaway of course.  We are doomed.On November 30th I leave the south and fly to the great northwest to start life over in a 95% white area. Good luck to those remaining behind.  Have a good time.

      “The only way the Republicans can get the votes of the dark skins in the future is to give them more than the democrats give them with us whites paying for most of the giveaway of course.”

      Very true, but the crash will come when there simply aren’t enough Whites to pay for it.

      The worst case may happen: Our great grandchildren will be mulattos, anyway. Our genes will end up like the mixed genes of the Uighurs of central Asia–only a different, darker mix. When future whites become powerless, they will give up their whiteness and have mixed children to ensure that the children survive. Whites who resist assimilation will be wiped out. This will be our doom.

    I predict that once Obama grants amnesty to the estimated 11-12 million illegal immigrants currently residing in the US, they will then become eligible for Obamacare.  I also predict that the taxes raised on the wealthy will go towards footing the bill for the health insurance premiums of our new fellow citizens, as I doubt many of them will  be able to afford to pay for it themselves.  See?  There will always be a way to get around those pesky little details.

  • NM156

    Why is Drudge obsessed with this stupid Gen. Petraeus cover-up story while Boehner and Graham prepare to destroy the United States? The absence of attention to amnesty talk is bizarre. Could it be possible that Drudge is covering up the impending stab in the back? You’ll notice that Drudge puts up very few articles that harm GOP Inc.’s position on immigration, which is open borders. This fixation with a possible connection between the general’s affair and the Benghazi attack strikes me as a diversion.

    I will never vote for any republican who supports immigration reform, (read: amnesty). With amnesty the democrats will get millions of new voters, the GOP nothing, and if they support amnesty, they’ll even lose the supporters they now have.

    • jack ryan

      Felix, you need to do a bit more than just not voting for some immigration traitor like lisping South Carolina RINO Lindsey Graham.  You need to learn effective ways how to punish traitors, this doesn’ t mean revolutionary fantasies about guns and bombs.

      There are thousands effective ways to punish rich, White traitors – learn where they socialize, learn where their spoiled children go to schools.

      Out and shun.

      There most be a strong social punishment for treason.

    2004:  Kerry 58%, Bush 40%.  D+18  (Even with Bush slinging the borders wide open, canceling immigration law enforcement, and handing out subprime mortgages to Hispanics like candy, a near-billionaire plutocrat still beats Bush by 18 points)

    2007:  John McCain, Ted Kennedy and George W. Bush push hard for amnesty

    2008:  Obama 67%, McCain 31%.  D+36.  (That’s Juan McAmnesty to you.)

    2012 March:  Romney ditches Kris Kobach to embrace the amnesty and cheap labor lobby (It’s some of that “stuff” I know)

    2012 November:  Obama 71%, Romney 27%.  D+44

    The future:  Republicans push for more amnesty and more open borders, Andrew Cuomo beats Marco Rubio in the 2016 Presidential election by 45-50 points among Hispanics.

    Lisping South Carolina RINO Lindsey Graham is arguably the worst immigration traitor in the now solid, White GOP South (I’ll include RINO, Neo Con bad Baptist Ex Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee).

    It is imperative that our people here spread the word that Lindsey Graham is a flat out racial traitor to our people, he’s working for the genocide of our people, the race replacement of our people in South Carolina, the South, the entire USA. 

    I ask our Southern readers here, how is it that Lindsey Graham gets away with teaming up with arch New Yawk shyster Sen. Charles Schumer on mass illegal alien amnesty?  Why has Lindsey Graham never been bombarded with rotten eggs, water balloons filled with foul liquids?

    Instead we get endless Southern rants about taking up guns and fighting/killing tens of thousands of Yankees in another North South Civil War.

    Your enemy – South Carolina Lindsey Graham is out in the open, publicly betraying your people and he gets away with it?

    Until something is done to take down/out South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, I don’t want to hear Southerners bad mouthing Yankees or making a lot of unsubstantiated shouts. Talk is cheap.

    The speed with which the Rockefeller Republicans have come out with this plan is amazing!

    It is so shocking, so shameful, that it has finally moved me to finally give up on the Republican Party for good and become a full time White Nationalist.

    When the GOP votes to support amnesty, I stop voting for them. The country doesn’t need two political parties working to advance the democrat party’s leftist agenda.
