If there was ever a question of the Republican's feelings about legalizing undocumented immigrants, it's been answered. You're not wanted.
This according to the article by Richard Cowan and Rachelle Younglai:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Prospects for congressional passage of a U.S. immigration overhaul looked bleak on Friday, but some House Republicans signaled they would offer a way for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country to get legal status that could be portrayed as something other than a pathway to citizenship.
Yes, it's called second class status. As Marco Rubio told Ted Cruz, "Ciudadanía de los Estados Unidos? Por encima de mi cadáver." Translated: U.S. Citizenship? Over my dead body.
And that leaves 11 million people to only hope. I didn't say what they may be hoping. But if I were you GOP, I wouldn't be expecting too much Feliz Navidad come December.
What douche bags the GOP-led house have proven themselves to be. When it suits that orange skinned Klan leader Boehner, he invokes the non-official Hastert rule about not bringing a bill to the floor unless it has his party's majority interest. Yet he's broken that rule a number of times and the country didn't explode like the death star in Star Wars episodes 5. So when it serves him or the evil empire, Darth Boehner invokes it as if it were law. If only the Speaker understood the law.
So, it looks like the GOP doesn't just fear the Latin population, it loathes it. He's living Hunter S. Thompson's book, only set in Washington, instead of Las Vegas. And he's gambling with our future. Pathetic.
Too cool for school. Via.
Pretty cool. Via John.
Wow, that's no super-fan, that's a super-nerd. Via.
