What's wrong with you liberals? Your answer to stop them is to give in to them. My response would at least cut down on the number of these bloodsucking scum from coming here. If we started killing enough of them, they wouldn't want to take the risk now would they? But you know.....that makes too much sense and too many people are afraid of hearing the bitching, crying and moaning from a bunch of liberal pussies that don't have the backbone to defend their family by defending their borders. Nobama is a pussy just like every other piece of shit that ever wanted to give these scum free reign. Did you notice the other asshole that wanted to do this was Carter and he was the only other president to have an approval rating as low as this douchebag since the 1800's.
Carter huh. Jimmy Carter was the only other president that wanted to give these scum free reign. Well this is from PolitiFact...
But as Giuliani reminded his foes during the Jan. 5, 2008, Republican debate, none other than Ronald Reagan, the patron saint of modern-day conservatism, signed the very law that Republicans call amnesty.
Say it ain't so!
Sorry. It's so. In 1986, Reagan signed an immigration reform bill, the first in 20 years, that legalized the status for 1.7-million people.
Some defenders of the law dispute the term "amnesty."
But here's how Edwin Meese, Reagan's former attorney general, characterizes what his boss did: "President Reagan called this what it was: amnesty. Indeed, look up the term 'amnesty' in Black's Law Dictionary, and you'll find it says, 'the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act provided amnesty for undocumented aliens already in the country.' "
Reagan signed the bill after Republicans and Democrats cobbled together an amnesty program in response to concerns from farmers worried about harvesting profits. The official record of congressional debates shows that lawmakers intended the program to provide a steady supply of labor for growers of perishable crops, such as cherries, grapes, peaches, etc. At the time the bill was written, however, "perishable" was defined so loosely that more durable crops such as potted plants, tobacco and seedlings were lumped in as well.
So even at the start, this program could be interpreted in ways that would benefit employers looking to save on wages.
To qualify for temporary status, migrants had to show they entered the United States before Jan. 1, 1982, and that they had continuously resided since then. They could get permanent residency within 18 months after that if they met certain requirements, such as learning English. The program took effect in 1987, also covering up to 350,000 people who had worked in U.S. agriculture at least 90 days in each of the preceding three years.
Many have called the program a success because it awarded green cards to 2.7-million migrants, giving them the hope of entry to the American middle class.
In exchange for the amnesty, the new law was supposed to have beefed up border patrols and stiffened fines for both the migrant workers and employers in cases of violation. Alas, the law failed to stop illegal immigration, and many critics of the law say the government never thoroughly regulated employers who skirted the law's requirements.
This much is certain: If the law aimed to curb illegal immigration, it failed: When the law was passed, there were about 5-million illegal immigrants; now, there's an estimated 12-million.
When Reagan signed the law, many predicted it would encourage the hiring of more migrants, especially outside of agriculture, and that this would spur the backlash against immigration that we're seeing today.
Giuliani, it would seem, brought up Reagan's legacy to show how difficult the immigration issue is. In doing so, he didn't trip any alarms on the Truth-O-Meter, which scores him a True.
Oh no! Not the Gipper! Seems like we had another president other than Obama and Carter (and I don't know if he did or not) that wanted immigration reform. But with his pen that liberal pussy Ronald Reagan gave millions of illegal "scum" American citizenship. Unlike Obama or Bush or Carter it was Ronald Wilson Reagan that signed a bill into law that gave amnesty to illegal immigrants. BTW President Bush pushed for immigration reform when he was in office and the 2008 Republican nominee John McCain co-sponsored a immigration reform bill with Ted Kennedy of all people.
Doesn't mean they're right either. You guarantee it? Alright Broadway Joe.
