Steve Deace – Et Tu, Rand Paul?

Steve Deace – Et Tu, Rand Paul?

“Likely fellow 2016 GOP presidential rival Marco Rubio has taken some heat from the conservative grassroots for being the face of “comprehensive immigration reform” (or what many conservatives call amnesty). Now it appears Rand Paul is going to the left of Rubio on this issue if you read his column in The Washington Times,” says Steve Deace.

The entire premise of Rand’s piece is what’s best and fair for the illegal aliens and never discusses what’s best and fair for the people here legally, paying taxes, and paying the freight for those who aren’t.

Gang of 8 Plan A Security Nightmare

“While the Democratic Party has been most often seen as the party that was eager to enable and encourage millions of aliens, including illegal aliens, to enter the United States, the reality is that both Democrats and Republicans see significant gains to be achieved by opening America’s borders to aliens from around the world, irrespective of how they enter the United States,” says Michael Cutler at

“[I]t is impossible to understand how the Gang of Eight has utterly ignored the fact that there is virtually no integrity to the process by which aliens are granted lawful status and U.S. citizenship under the current circumstances. Aliens who are applying to participate in the “DREAM Act” program cobbled together by the President without the consent of Congress are not being interviewed in person.”

Jan Ting – Say No to Another Amnesty

“The so-called comprehensive immigration reform proposed by a group of senators and President Obama amounts to immediate amnesty for millions of immigration-law violators, and the lifting of limits on future immigration, with some window dressing designed to assuage skeptical voters. We’ve seen this act before,” says law professor Jan C. Ting.

“The 1986 amnesty promised to fix the immigration problem by granting amnesty to three million immigration-law violators, strengthening the border, and penalizing employers for hiring illegal immigrants. It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.”

Fitton – Don’t Be Fooled by Deceptive Amnesty Claims

“More than a few Republicans in the United States Senate seem to have contracted a severe case of what Harry Truman called “Potomac Fever” (wanting to go along to get along in Washington). Apparently still trembling from the recent election debacle, they have cobbled together a deceptive and destructive “bipartisan” compromise on illegal alien amnesty,” says Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch.

“There is no question that the Senate plan is unjust. Illegal aliens have broken our laws, and they shouldn’t be rewarded with amnesty and immediate legalization. Here’s something else: Simply talking about providing a “pathway to citizenship” is only going to worsen the already out-of-control illegal immigration crisis by inducing greater numbers of illegal aliens to flood across the border to take advantage of the program.”

    Simple questions that nobody will answer: The horrified cries ring out when anyone suggests deportation. “We can’t deport 11 million people.” I ask, why not? But no one replies. We managed to move whole armies and equipment in WW11. Are we less able a half century later? What they mean is “We don’t want to deport 11 million (or the true number which is probably three times that estimate.

    Another observation – Republicans are standing on their heads to pander to the Hispanic voters. It is said they must have “Immigration Reform” to win them over. I would be insulted if I were a legal Hispanic. What is being said about Hispanics is, that unless you allow the millions of illegal aliens to stay, we will not join your party, i.e., we are holding you hostage until you agree to allow the lawbreakers to remain and reap the benefits despite their crimes..Do legal Hispanic voters truly want to destroy this country?

    Oh gee. Knock me over with a feather. Applicants for the Dream Act are “not being interviewed in person”. So much for all those “strict background checks”. And this is only for a small portion, less than 10%, of those being considered for a general amnesty.

    They’re already lying. But it’s supposed to be “trust us” just like the one time 1986 amnesty. No, you can’t be trusted. A general amnesty is not even passed and look at the failed promises of Dream Act enforcement. Liars, plain and simple.

    What the Hades does Conservative [or Liberal for that matter] have to do with accepting amnesty for IAs?

    Let’s fess up and admit it. Our current two party system is run by cowards and/or scoundrals [you pick]. Its time for a new Party, call it We the People perhaps and supports the voters’ will for once. No amnesty!
