This isent "reform" it's selling away our nation's future. We have 23 million Americans out of work, millions more underemployed and these RINO clowns like Rubio and McShame want to bring in more immigrants and more visa holders? We already let in over a million legal immigrants and year and apparently that is not enough

I refuse to be associated with a party that is more interested in trying to earn the "Hispanic vote" by pandering to lawbreakers and invaders than with providing jobs to Americans and putting our nation first and foremost. Here's a hint: Hispanics are large group of many different cultures each with their own issues that the Republicans can seek to work on. Your not going to magically get their votes by agreeing to import entire villages from Guatemala or the Dominican Republic. Focus on individual groups like the Puerto Ricans for example who are NATIVE BORN AMERICANS.

They should also focus on Cuban-Americans. Many if not most who have roots in Latin America and in particular Mexico are a lost cause.

For people who bleed for the sanctity of the English language, and the American way of life, the typos on this threads are extremely offensive and disturbing.

Especially since browsers will actually show them to you.

We all need to learn English, even the natives eh?

The problem ain't our "English"; the problem is illegal aliens and here, the problem is many people ain't happy with the Repubs wanting to sell out US citizens. Sheesh!

All countries hold their native languages in revere. It is a part of their national identity and culture. There is something wrong with that? I find it hypocritical that some think it is terrible to want to retain our national language as being English but would be adamant about other countries (Mexico comes to mind) to want to retain theirs.

There are citizens within every country that don't spell or speak the native language perfectly. It is a silly argument to deny any country their native language based on that.

If the Republicans help pass immigration "reform" I am leaving the party


Then you might as well as leave the "party" now, because you and I know key GOP Senators are working on behalf of comprehensive immigration reform.

It is going to be a hard sell in the House. Many Republicans in the House are against it because it isn't reform but amnesty.
