Immigration Reform
Last comment by JimmyMack 1 year ago.

Well the Senate passed the Immigration Bill in a bi-partisan manner 68-32. Fourteen Republicans joined all 52 Democrats and two independents to make the bill happen. In other words, compromise can be found in the Senate. The question now is, can it now be found in the House of Representatives.

It is going to be interesting to watch, especially how House Leader Boehner deals with the Tea Partiers and all the other Republicans. The time is NOW to deal with Immigration and not later. My hope is that compromise can be reached in the House and that it not be held hostage by the heretofore intransigent Tea Partiers amongst them.

Once out of the House we can then, hopefully in a bi-partisan way deal with the next bill.

I heard on the news the House said they would reject the Senate Bill because they wanted to draft one of their own.

I am beginning to think that the Tea Partiers are anarchists.

JimmyMack, this is a good bill; however I don’t think the house should pass it as is without concrete enforcement on the border with penalties for not enforcing it. I wanted to do some research of my own because I’ve heard that the amendment for the proper fencing and the proper enforcement wasn’t enforceable. Here is a good article to read; 6 Things You Need To Know about The Senate Bill:


And here is the proof that the border fencing isn’t appropriate or enforceable. Hugh Hewitt interviews Senator Hoeven, 1 of the Gang of 8 and a Republican (RINO) on the amendment, and has difficulties explaining the specifics and Hewitt is all on him like he should be:


The Democrats have the pathway to citizenship and now the Republicans want Border enforcement. The Dems passed landmark legislation and missed a critical issue that the people want. Let’s see what happens.

Good points, Funk. I'm thinking that whatever happens in the House, pass or fail, has the potential to greatly hurt or help the Republicans.

Cuz you and I know, we b dealin wid politicians.

The House needs to get with the program and get a bill into conference committee so that this issue can be disposed of NOW. The Senate bill looks like a pretty good template. The Republicans need to get this issue off the table for 2014 - if for no other reason than their own political necessity. Besides that, the country needs to update the way we deal with immigration for a whole host of reasons - not the least of which is national security.

They need to get it done NOW.

The Coming Republican Nightmare
July 26, 2014
No. The Nightmare is not the Tea Partiers hi-jacking the Republican Party and embracing aspects of National Socialism. Though, that truly would be nightmarish. It just ain't likely to happen.

For the Poll Watchers (not me)
