Obama campaign plans major push for Gang of Eight immigration bill (The Washington Examiner) Nuff said. – if President Obama agrees this is a good bill . . . then it’s not.
Republican senators are trying to limit the opposition from conservatives over what many call “amnesty” for illegal immigrants and broaden the party’s appeal to Hispanic and moderate voters.
These eight congressmen are attempting to ram their bill through before anyone can find out what’s in it.
Sen. Marcio Rubio (R-Fla.)
Sen. Jeff Flake(R-Ariz.)
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.)
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)
Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.)
Some Republicans, including Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, have already expressed concerns.
“It’s worse than we thought. It’s amnesty on a massive scale, greater than we anticipated,” Smith told Politico, adding, “We took their word that the border was going to be secured before the other reforms were implemented and that’s not the case.”
Both Rubio and Rand Paul, two upcoming bright spots, are turning into major disappointments.
They appear be falling into the constant campaigning mode. Both are looking to run for president and are making decisions they think will bring votes, instead of governing in the best interest of the nation.
11 million voting illegal aliens will certainly benefit the Democrats. Why doesn’t Rubio understand this?
There’s nothing in this massive amnesty for ordinary Americans, except that we get to pay for it.
I don’t know why any conservative politician would consider any kind of immigration reform until the border is closed and secure. – They can then take time to put a plan together that will draw the Hispanic vote to the Republican Party. Here’s a few suggestions.
It could be done in a few months, at a low cost, and could be maintained without adding any extra payroll.
Just keep things simple.
The first thing I would do is break the immigration issue into two parts.
I think it would be smart to pass legislation first that would secure the border. – Everyone already agrees that needs to be done.
And it would be easy to sell, if you could prove that you had a “fail safe plan” that could be easily implemented. – The following plan should do that.
First. We need to retrieve the required amount of soldiers the we’ll need for labor by bringing a portion of them home from each unit that is serving in a peaceful country like, Germany, France, Japan, etc.
They’re already being paid — so there won’t be any additional labor cost.
Second. Using this free labor – instead of building a fence – string a line of razor wire the full length of the border. – That will be much faster and cheaper.
Then move back 50 yards (or whatever is decided on), and run another strand parallel to the first.
This will create a neutral or “no man’s” land. – where the illegal intruders will be prohibited.
We can always add additional strands of wire (two or three deep) along the border side. Or come back yearly and add a strand, until you’re satisfied.
You can then, using these same paid soldiers to line up along this second line of wire – armed and guarding every inch of the “no man’s” land.
This would also eliminate the need for a lot of expensive technology.
Drones, helicopters and extra men could be secured for emergency situations.
I believe this plan would secure the border — easily – and would be hard for anyone to reject.
A bonus would be . . . The soldiers would be spending their money locally instead of overseas, boosting the economy in that area.
The person that solves this problem first, will be seen as a leader that knows how and is willing to take on hard issues.
