Does anyone have a good feeling about this?
The Politico reported:

A powerful group of senators from both parties has reached a deal on the outlines of a comprehensive immigration overhaul, a development that will drive an emotional debate on a hot-button issue unseen in Washington for more than half a decade.

The group is expected to unveil the basics of its proposal at a Monday news conference on Capitol Hill, essentially laying down a marker on the issue one day before President Barack Obama heads to Las Vegas to unveil more details about his own immigration proposal.

According to a five-page document provided to POLITICO, the sweeping proposal — agreed to in principle by eight senators — would seek to overhaul the legal immigration system as well as create a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s roughly 11 million illegal immigrants. But establishing that pathway would depend on whether the U.S. first implements stricter border enforcement measures and new rules ensuring immigrants have left the country in compliance with their visas. Young people brought to the country as children illegally and seasonal agriculture industry workers would be given a faster path to citizenship.

The broad agreement by the influential Gang of Eight senators amounts to the most serious bipartisan effort to act on the highly charged issue since George W. Bush’s comprehensive measure was defeated in the Senate in 2007.

    Sorry to see Rubio’s face in that lineup. Most of them should have their pictures hanging in the post office.

    I think about 5% of the GOP base supports this.

    The next time you get a speeding ticket for breaking the law. . .claim amnesty!

    The next time someone steals something (and gets caught) for breaking the law. . .claim amnesty!

    This is rewarding illegal, law breaking people with citizenship and a slap in the face of the millions of people who waited their turn; filled out their paperwork/interviews and legally became citizens!

    Enforce the laws that are already on the books and stop pandering to illegals. . .just like a leopard never changes it’s spots, illegals are still going to vote for Dems–the party of “free stuff” (paid for by the rest of us).

    And Bob Menendez needs to go to jail for engaging in sex with underage woman. . .don’t care if it was in another country. . .this is not the type of behavior that a US Senator should be engaging in–EVER!

    The progs are on the march. TEAParty members better beware, not just in Kentucky, but every in every red state.

    Forewarned is forearmed.

    Bipartisan? I don’t think four liberals and four pro-amnesty RINOs = bipartisan.

  • bigkahuna

    I have a great plan…. Those here illegally will be allowed to leave peacefully and get in line like others and wont have their illegal entry held against them. If they dont they will be deported and never allowed back ever.

    We like to call it…THE FREAKING LAW.

    If I steal your car and dont get caught in the act ….do I get to keep the car and have you pay for the insurances, gas, tires etc ??? I mean I only stole it to be able to take care of my family.

    with over 20 million americans out of work our politicans think we need to let MORE people come into the united states. this isn’t reform its an attempt to legitimize their illegal thirty five year colonization program.

    how many muslims do you think will be allowed to colonize the united states legally under this plan?

    Included in the proposal the destruction of STEM careers for US citizens. Government data does not support a shortage of new graduates to fill openings. It is common knowledge that older STEM workers are both the first fired and not hired so that business can import cheap workers from third world countries.


    Have ‘gangs’ always run the Senate? As I once heard in a movie….it is time to take a flame thrower to that place.

  • samminusa

    It better include ending the “anchor baby” BS!!!! Not legally here or a citizen……tough……no citizenship for said “baby”!


    I am certain that the gang of four GOP’s demanded that we will sign on to this ONLY if we get photo VOTER ID laws enacted and that ONLY citizens can be allowed to vote and ONLY once.
    Right? We got something out of this, right?

    Sasja, I always read around every in every typo you make!


  • jony101

    hope the republicans know they just put a fork into there party. Illegals/undocumented only know one english word “democrat” actually 2 words “foodstamps”. Like the monkee at the zoo who presses the button that gives him a treat, immigrants legal/illegal only vote democrat. 10 million new democraat voters will make this a one party country.


    Is there still a debate about the conservative credentials (nevermind the intellect) of Mr. Rubio, or is he going to get a pass for trying to pass defacto amnesty? I swear you’ld think these repubs are delusional or intentionally wanting to make permanent the progressive (i.e. marxist) power base.

    These 8 men are supporting Traitor in Chief idea shame on them. Shorter duration you see mafia style Mexican drug cartels will rack havoc around American cities.

  • MLloyd

    Illegal, undocumented, alien, immigrant. Mix the words however you want but it still comes down to “You aren’t supposed to be here”. Now get out. PS: take the gang of 8 with you and please be careful not to trip over the border line on your way out. Adios, bye-bye, don’t try coming back.
