The Senate has Lost its Mind

Okay, not the full Senate – yet, but can there be any doubt this lunacy will fly right through that democrat-controlled body?

Senate panel OKs tax-welfare benefits for newly legal immigrants

By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times
Monday, May 20, 2013
The Senate Judiciary Committee voted Monday to allow illegal immigrants who get legal status to begin collecting tax-welfare payments, as the panel spent a fourth day working through amendments to the massive immigration bill and party-line splits began to emerge.
In one major change, the committee voted 17-1 to make a third drunken-driving conviction a deportable offense for the newly legalized immigrants if at least one of those offenses occurs after they are approved for legal status.
But immigrant-rights groups called that a rollback of due-process rights for the immigrants and said a drunken-driving incident shouldn’t cost someone a chance at citizenship.
“We cannot and will not support hard-line proposals that take away discretion and limit an individual’s ability to pursue the pathway to citizenship,” said Paromita Shah, associate director of the National Lawyers Guild’s National Immigration Project.
Overall, the committee continued to maintain the delicate balance struck by the “Gang of Eight” senators who negotiated the 867-page bill: Quick legal status for illegal immigrants, but delaying citizenship rights until after the administration spends more money on border security, puts in place a new electronic verification system to check workers’ status, and enacts an entry-exit system to check visas at airports and seaports.
In previous days’ action, two Republican members of the Gang of Eight — Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Jeff Flake of Arizona — joined with Democrats to block a series of GOP amendments to stiffen the bill’s security.
But on Monday, the two Republicans sided with their party colleagues on key questions on giving illegal immigrants public benefits.
The 10 Democrats on the committee still outnumber the newly unified Republicans, but the votes signaled tough fights ahead on the Senate floor.

Parasites

Hopefully the republican-controlled House of Representatives will put a swift end to this insanity, as unlike the idiots currently populating the Senate, all of them will be up for reelection next year.

-But you will pardon me if I refrain from holding my breath.

As for myself, I am getting beyond tired of seeing Americans being treated like second-class citizens in favor of illegal invaders by our own government.

Those on that Senate committee that voted for this idiocy should be ashamed of themselves.

Of course, when you have no shame…

Until all this I thought Rubio was a bright shining star for the conservatives. But if he succeeds here, the result will be a flood of new voters from socialist countries, who have no understanding of what made America great and prosperous.

All American citizens are American citizens. If you read what the bible has to say about something relatively the same in principle that is, there is the parable of the workers who were hired early in the morning who were promised a certain sum for the days’ work, and then during the day workers were added to the work force, and at the end of the day they all received the same amount of pay. If we are saved later on in life, we are not dnied the benefits of salvation, Jesus died once and for all, and by his… Read more »

You are wrong on so many accounts of what the Bible really says, I don’t know where to begin. GOD set up boundries (borders) for His people, period! This country was created for the POSTERITY of those who founded it. Do you know what POSTERITY even means? Read the Preamble Of The Constitution for starters. Posterity means the SEED LINE, OFFSPRING, PROGENY, of the RACE of the Founders, period! It was not lots of different “nationalities” as you call them, it was peoples of the EUROPEAN nations only. The other nonwhite races were NOT the peoples who built, created, nor… Read more »

Shame on Trail Dust? Do show us where in the U.S. Constitution or the Declaration of Independence that says this country is meant only for “whites” — assuming you can even define what “white” is. Do you mean by your precious “whites,” people like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Bill & Hillary Clinton, Chris Matthews … ? (I can go on, you get the idea. Note that none of them is a Joo, whom you also trash.) By “white” do you mean skin color or physiognomy? “White” is a term devoid of meaning in Physical Anthropology.

Abigail, have you lost your mind? Immoral for people of 2 races to marry? You’re kidding! Right?
And don’t think that quoting Lincoln will settle any of these issues. An examination of the facts will show that Lincoln has been put on far too high a pedestal. He was a politician, with all the warts and blemishes, who was as mixed in his motives as most people. What Bible do you read that gives you the idea that God favors one race over another?

Some people are not going to like my comment, but I read recently that the average IQ of illegal immigrants from Mexico is 85. They are going to bring in more crime and breed more low IQ babies. Instead of adding to the labor force, many of them are going to end up on welfare. If you don’t want to have to tighten your belts even more in the near future, you need to call or write your Senators and Representatives.

“Native Americans” are not “natives.” Your ancestors also came from somewhere else — from Siberia across the Bering Strait.

Hey, starfish,
Ever heard of the Kennewick Man? His remains were found in Washington State in 1996. Scientists determined he lived 9,000 years ago, long long before the first “Native Americans” Siberians crossed the Bering Strait into North America. And Kennewick Man was Caucasian. Reconstructions of what he looked like show Kennewick Man bearing an eerie similarity to the actor Patrick Steward, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Not only is the idea that the “Native Americans” were a peace-loving people a myth, the Anasazi in the American southwest were cannibals. I used to show this sobering video to my students:

Copy and sent it on for educational purposes.
It kept the elite in power…to dominate the masses…crush decent…and a pliant people easy to subjugate. This sure sounds a like today.. Is this is just one step away?
Word getting out that we have cannibals in our midst would bring about allot of social control with very, very little effort. If you put in a number of political correctness in instead of cannibals it is scary how well it fits.

starfishoo,
I’m as tired of the “Native American Card” as I am of the “Race Card.” This immigration bill is not merciful, as you rightly desire it to be. It is a cynical attempt to consolidate power on the left. These senators don’t give a rat’s ass about anyone but themselves.
And while we’re on the subject, it seems the Reservations are monstrously destructive to people who choose to live there. Like the unemployment line, the public welfare often has the result of destroying all drive and initiative.

Illegal Alien

1. a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorization.
2. a foreigner who enters the U.S. without an entry or immigrant visa, especially a person who crosses the border by avoiding inspection or who overstays the period of time allowed as a visitor, tourist, or business person.

The majority of Mexican illegal aliens who live in my region are not of Spanish-European descent, they are indigenous Indians from their respective regions south of the border are rather short in stature and do not have a high school education. Although some are working at jobs most citizens don’t won’t to do, there’s a larger percentage who have been receiving free benefits from Social Services because of the anchor children they are producing. Making them wait 13 or 15 years for citizenship and benefits is a smokescreen as they already get those benefits on behalf of those children once… Read more »

Thank you Dave for this interesting post. Usually, if laws are broken, there is some type of justice imposed. There are many legal aliens and immigrants who complied with U.S. laws. It is a slap in their faces when the laws regarding citizenship and legal aliens are ignored or avoided.
