Congress loses its way on immigration

From page A9 | January 18, 2014 |

First there was welfare, then their was amnesty, now there is someone trying to push a form of “Obamacare” for the illegal immigrants.

This Congress is beginning to get on my nerves, as well as it should be getting on yours with some nut in Congress trying to pass medical coverage for people who entered this country without the permission of you and me.

The head of the Latino caucus is trying to get it passed. Does it not make you wonder how the heck most members of Congress are leaving Congress as millionaires, according to the news, and now some yahoo is trying to cost the U.S. citizen who pays into the government by way of taxes. Do they think they have the right to give our money to people who don’t belong here in the first place?

Has this country gone completely off the deep end or what?

Wait, don’t answer. Apparently all the bad guys are not behind bars, because it looks like they are in both federal and state governments.

    Let's start a petition to turn California back over to Mexico. They could not do any worse job of running the state. And now that Whites are a minority, maybe the Mexican government would give you welfare, free housing and free healthcare. I'll sign!!

    Could be. What's your source? I can see we're going to have to define "welfare."

    I too favor ceding California to either China or Mexico. They would do a much better job running the lawless immoral renegade state of tyranny.

    Illegal immigration and illegal aliens is clearly what California wants and as such California is now an outlaw renegade state. This is what you pay for! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXDhMvFoXrc

    That traitor Garamendi tried to call illegal immigration just ''immigration'' at a town all meeting several years ago and repeatedly attempted to deny the distinction between the 2 terms. Of course, the meeting is chock full of his true believers who think just like he does. He needs to publicly confronted on this again.
