Mr. Rush Limbaugh offered up a suggestion a while back. So far, no takers from either side.

You people, especially liberals, who say this isnt about more voters, this proves that is a big farce. You dont give a damn about these people, just their votes.

Let all who are here become citizens, with the strict rule that they will not be allowed to vote for 25 years. Simple as that. But you liberals and Obama care sooooooooo much for these people you would turn down doing that. Lying hypocrites.

I like the concept, but in all they wouldn't be citizens if they could not vote. Maybe they could use that as punishment for breaking our laws.

How about no amnesty at all? Send them back to their nations. Ten year moratorium on all immigration with legal immigration capped to less than 100,000/year henceforth.

Citizenship without voting for 25 years sounds pretty damn fair to me. Some simple, cheesy, quick path to becoming a voter is all that Obama and the Dems care about.

This was offered up simply to prove a point. Obama and others would never go for it. If they cant have voters, and have them quickly, they would never go for it.

Ding ding ding

This is the reason why the Democrats are so reluctant to support statehood for Puerto Rico. The number of islanders who affiliate with the national Republican Party is to the extent that - contrary to popular belief - it is not guaranteed that the island would lean Democrat. Historically Puerto Ricans who support statehood have tended to be national Republicans. Additionally the pro-territory/status quo party is affiliated with the national Democratic Party and donated over a million $ to Obama's re-election campaign.

Well, instead of being proud of voting for him, perhaps you should smack yourself and live with regret. This man doesnt care about our laws as youll see yet again when he comes out against protecting our borders.

Wrong, WIHS. We're assured by the inllegal immigration "experts" on here that most, if not all Hispanics, are ethnocentric and vote Democrat to benefit our Mexican "brethren"

Kidding aside, yes contrary to popular belief, Puerto Rico would actually be a swing state with socially conservative Democrats and socially conservative Republicans

Why should there be two classes of citizens? Either you are a citizen with full rights or you are not. We fought a civil war over a similar issue a long time ago.
