Maybe this will finally stop all the whining, for a while anyway. The debate which included EXCLUDING illegal aliens from HCR is a plus as well.

Health-care passage would kill immigration bill, key senator says

Talk about an empty threat, traitors.

Besides; quite a few Latinos are against illegal immigration.

i couldn't help but notice that graham said "this year" in the statement. could it be that it is because he thinks that democrats will lose seats this election cycle and won't have the numbers to push it through?

graham is a RINO who sponsored this legislation in the first place.

i would guess that any legalized hispanics would resent fast tracking illegal immigrants in,because 1) it cuts into their wages if they are working, 2) it causes the same economic damage to them as taxpayers as it does to americans by birth, unless they are trying to bring family members into the country.

Some are smart enough to figure that out but far too many of them have an ethnocentric agenda that trumps common sense. Not only are many trying to bring in family members but they want to legalize those already here even though they didn't play by the rules.

And 3): the mere presence of Hispanic illegal aliens is a slap in the face of those true blue Americans of Mexican, etc. background.

Don't believe Grahm for one minute and please start calling and emailing the traitors. The administration did not listen to the overwhelmingly number of Americans that rallied against this bill. Obama will pass/grant amnesty when the cowards in the house and senate pass the next bill and there will be not only an additional 30,000,000 receiving free (subject for debate) healthcare but 60,000,000 more people taking from the well of taxpayers dollars with a soon to be shortage of qualified doctors. The other treat is now that most of us look at the McDonald jobs as a lifeline will be shoved to the back of the line because the illegals/now Americans will come out of the shadows to suck up what is left of employment. I give up. Going to Costa Rico.

Funny thing about that...the illegals at the protest were shouting that they were responsible for putting "the one" into the WH. I think many more were in fact voting. Well, let them vote out our rights and our voice in the near future. I also predict that they will not want to pay SS dollars for the old fat white folks expecting a drink at the well.

I read a response to one letter sent to a congressman and in it he stated that he believed in a pathway, blah blah but that those who fail to comply "should" be deported, not will. Also claimed they will get in the back of the line. Well, to me, the back of the line is in their country of origin, behind those who have not made it here yet but are waiting to step onto American soil, not hang out here and never finish the process. I am sure they would find another loophole or claim such ignorance, someone will do the work for them and push them through. People proposing amnesty really think Americans are stood. CIR makes absolutely no sense.
