    The only reason to assume that hispanics will continue to vote Democratic is to assume that Republicans will continue to be gratuitously cruel, racist, and damaging to the American economy. There’s a way to fix that, but it would require changes in policy, and Republicans (Marco Rubio in particular) are too cowardly to do that.

    Absolutely correct. This is the time that the Republican leadership should actually do something that will benefit the US. They are in the same position that they were in in 1994, when the populace, weary of the way the Democrats were running things, gave the keys to the country to the Republicans. They responded to the challenge with their Contract on America, continuing through shutting down the government, and ending with Newt Gingrich being removed by his own party from the Speakership as a result of ethics violations.

    It appears the Republicans are not responding any better to the challenge today. This is a golden opportunity for them to do something other than abortion or gay marriage, like jobs and the economy. I wonder if they actually even see the opportunity, or if they are just actively avoiding it.

    Well,,,, that would certainly solve the problem of illegal immigrants from Mexico, now would it not? To say nothing about making our southern border as totally meaningless as any other border between individual states of the US!!

    Polls are showing that the more people learn about this bill, the more they dislike it. Kinda like Obama(non)Care.

    That’s why this Gang of Morons is trying to ram through this bill before even more people find out.

    Mexico would actually be the 51st through 81st state, as it has 31 states. Boy howdy would THAT change the makeup of Congress!

    If you think that a 13 year waiting period is ridiculous, how about a 23 year waiting period (Philippines F4) or a 20 year waiting period (Philippines F3, Mexico F1, F2B, F3) or a 16 year waiting period (Mexico F4) or a 12-13 year waiting period (Mainland China F4, India F4, Philippines F1)? And my understanding from listening to my friends gripe (and some give up and go home) about it is that the wait times can jump around so you really don’t know how long you will be waiting until the state dept gets around to your form. Personally, those in the country without visas should be allowed to get a visa without a citizenship path. They then could apply (with no penalty for being here before) for a visa class that does have a citizenship path and get in line with everyone else.

    One major aspect that is different from 1994 is that the Republicans have let the one note marginals take over the party. Almost no one will vote for a Tea Party fanatic except in local districts. Less so nationally.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. Hope we can get our representatives to go that Visa path.

    japan requires sufficient capital or skills, either personally or within family, to support oneself. let us add that to the bill.

    Until we get the Mexican government to pay more than lip service to improving their economy, and patrolling the border from THEIR side, we’ll continue to have problems. And where do the Repubs want to cut to pay for the BILLIONS it would take to secure the border to their satisfaction? I think ALL in Congress who want to SECURE the border should take themselves, their staffs, AND their bitchy constituents to the border and patrol it themselves!

    Obama is also confused about British Prime Minister’s first name.

    Some places expect you to have a job waiting when you move to their country.

    We should only note for whatever relevance to the black propaganda of the Regressive White Right Wing.
