Thread: GOP Version of the "Dream Act"

  1. #1
    GOP Buzz Word Breakdown

    The most popular current buzz word on the campaign trail is "Rule of Law". "America is under siege by a flood of illegal aliens. Restrictionists encourage us to except the premise landscapers and dry wall hangers are a "threat to our security" and "sovereignty". This did not work out well in the last election but the GOP clings to this strategy because radio talk show hosts and the new GOP Chairman Lou Dobbs have made this decision on their behalf.

    Q. What is the penalty for Business owners who entice workers to violate federal immigration law, labor laws, and reporting regulations?

    A. Possible fine and a stern talking to.

    Q. What is the penalty for a foreign worker without proper authorization?

    A. Apprehension, indefinite detainment (in a remotely located detention facility owned by a Haliburton Subsidiary), Deportation and a 10 year or permanent exile from the United States.
    Possible death as some detainees die as a result of denial of medication necessary to sustain life such as Insulin for diabetics or statins for heart patients.
    Mixed status US Citizen family members end up on public assistance and suffer separations from loved ones more severe for a civil infraction of Immigration code than robbers, murderers and rapists.

    I thought "Rule of Law" had a relationship with "punishment fits the crime", but not in Immigration Enforcement.

    At the $1000 a plate GOP campaign trail dinners we have Republican owned business interests calling enticement of undocumented foreign workers to cross the US Border without inspection, harboring fugitives, violating US Labor laws and Tax Regulations, "cost of doing business.".

    At the $100 a plate GOP dinners Presidential candidates are calling un-documented
    foreign workers Illegal Aliens, Criminals, and potential terrorists.


    Way up the food chain our Fear Level is manipulated, we are warned of potential terrorist attacks all leading to the proposal of the militarization of the border. Defacto GOP party Chairman Lou Dobbs is calling for a crack down on these "evil illegal aliens who are invading our country" and destroying our nation.

    The war on "Illegals" is costing taxpayers a fortune and is no different than the drug war. Billions have been spent but no real progress in controlling the drugs. We now have a "real problem" an Industry (prisons for profit) that government insiders are using to financially fleece the American Public. They are just getting warmed up as our fear level intensifies. More money to "fight the illegal aliens" more Detention Centers, mean more Federal Dollars spent on incarcerating people who were previously self sufficient and no threat to society. I for one am not on board with the concept of spending $85 a day to support Jose and his dozen cousins when they are perfectly capable of supporting themselves. It really ticks me off that because we incarcerated him his US Citizen spouse and kids are now on the dole as well. This "cracking down" thing seems to be punishing me, and most certainly is a pretty expensive way of "proving a point".

    If you think that the GOP Version of the Dream Act is "helpful" to the taxpayer, wake up and smell the espresso Amigo. The only one getting Rich on this scheme is Haliburton and friends of George W. Xenophobes keep it up, when ICE succeeds its "mission" in your hometown. Do not be deluded into thinking Americans will get their jobs back, we are past that. Your local Factory or Plant will be gone and relocated to Mexico, where cost of doing business is cheaper and far less hassle. You can say goodbye to you local small business profits and landlords will be stuck holding the bag.

    The OP, republicanwriter, is not a Republican. Her/his views are more liberal than some Democrats I know. Read back her/his previous posts. S/he just misspelled her/his Login ID, it should have been "republicanwriteoff."

    Went astray, then found the correct way back home.

    Republican or not, this post painted a very true picture! Come on all you Republicans, step forward if you can debate one word that was written in the OP's post!

    Yeah, I know its tough to tell the difference between the big-government Democrats, and the even-bigger–government Republicans. There are many like me in the GOP that are from a different time, when it the Constitution had a meaning.

    Expanding the Government is a liberal idea.

    Government interference with the Free Market Economy is a Liberal Idea.

    There is certainly no fiscal conservancy in building the longest fence on the planet. There is no logic in militarizing the Mexican border, when terrorists were escorted through the turnstile or got thier VISA's from the same agency you now advocate expanding. I am not drinking that cool-aid.

    A "True" conservative would not be willing to place concern about immigration above any devotion to American liberty and the Bill of Rights. The GOP and this Cheny/Bush puppet show is promoting nothing less than Stalinism.

    If this is America ask yourself, do we promote liberty and free markets? If the answer is yes, why all this anti-immigration zealotry, warmongering, economic ignorance, nativism and calls for police state measures?

    DHS is the closest thing we have in America to the Gestapo. They are a rogue agency running around terrorizing communities. If this was not true you would never see an affiliation between US Citizen Puerto Ricans and Mexicans. (other than the Hispanic caucus) It doesn't happen. Yet in NY, a Puerto Rican agency is suing DHS/ICE for warrentless pre-dawn raids. We have a government agency with no accountability literally busting down the doors and rousting US Citizens for no reason, other than they happen to be Hispanic.

    When the state "cracks down on immigration," it is acting in its own interests of power and expansion. It is clear that the FED's have become an entity unto themselves, and simply want to further manage and rule our lives. The border is just another excuse.

    Why the tampering due-process and judical review and the "stacking" of the the judiciary by the Administration? I was not suprised when suddenly there are not enough Prison and Detention center beds. Oh lucky us Haliburton is just the company to handle the job. FOLLOW THE MONEY, it will always open your eyes.

    Davdah - you still have your blinders on! Time for a wake up call! The GOP has turned our country into a serious laughing matter. It's a sad state of affairs - but you need to back down and stop defending it!!!!!

  9. #9
    No need for self righteous statements right now. This country is in serious turmoil! All of the blantant, negative, biased words aren't going to fix it! It's going to take masses of us to join together to try and turn this around. So, please stop the stupid, inconsequential fighting that's going on. Who cares if one is fat, ugly, a moron - whatever - that's shallow in comparison to the crisis facing this country.

    I second the motion. Knowing is the key for ProudUSC. As what they say: we may never remember people by what they have said or done, but we will, by how they made us feel (or something like that). Looking through the eyes of our neighbors, it counts to look beyond their documentation, which is temporal, it's their honor and dignity that're everlasting.
