Swalwell Parries with Rick Perry

CONGRESS | 15TH DISTRICT | Rep. Eric Swalwell meet Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Multiple media reports described it as “sparring” last week between the freshman Democrat and the folksy Texan who received the question while sitting side saddle. But, it was hardly that.

In fact, Swalwell’s questioning of Perry over the immigration and detention of young people attempting to cross the border from Central America fizzled to the point where the subject began quizzing the questioner into making comments that could be construed by the Fox News crowd as liberal flip-flopping.

“Do you not agree that they need to be sent back to where they’re from?” Perry began questioning Swalwell.

“I do agree on a case-by-case basis, we do not want them to come here,” Swalwell answered. But, possibly sensing a chance to corner Swalwell, Perry pressed on.

“But you agree—I want you on the record here in front of God and everybody—you agree that they need to be sent back to the country where they came from?” said Perry.

Watch the entire exchange below:

  1. To quote the Elvis Presley song, "Return to Sender!"

    If you're here illegally, you back to the home country. Legal immigration--yes; illegal--no.

    End of story.

  2. This is what we lost when we lost Pete Stark.

    We lost a progressive voice who would stand up for those kids, who would label them as refugees--which they are--and fight for them to have safe haven in our country, not force them to go back to the violence and oppression they desperately fled.

    Instead, we have someone who uses these kids as a political gimmick. Who wants to turn away helpless children fleeing violence. Who says "we do not want them to come here."

    We need people who deal with these issues with compassion & mercy. That is the difference between a good progressive and a corporate Dem.

  3. Thank you, Mr. Open Borders--come one; come all.

    Sorry, they have to get it right in their home countries. Ahora mismo la nuevo revolucion!

    If we didn't have the Pacific and Atlantic oceans protecting us, we would have all the 'refugees' from Africa, Asia, and Europe. Jam-packing the U.S. is not the answer.

    0 population growth for EVERYONE, U.S. included, and stability in their own countries is the only answer. Anything else is an a false panacea and crap shoot at best.

    Don't forget to label me racist in my oratory when I've also said 0 population growth for everyone, including Anglos in the U.S.!

  4. Word!

    Don't want no illegals here. Stand in back of the line and take your f****n turn like the rest of us.

    We must deport, big time and pronto!

  6. “I wish I could take all those children home with me"

    The day that Nancy Pelosi actually takes in some of these children and houses them at her SF home and/or her Napa wineries is the day that I will know Democrats are serious about this problem. She won't. They aren't. This is just an exploitation of a crisis for political purposes.

  7. "Sorry, they have to get it right in their home countries."

    Agreed. I wish our local politicians were as concerned with the unemployed and underemployed US citizens...especially the African-American youth in Oakland and SF.

  8. I'm against sending refugees, especially children, home to be killed.

  9. I believe that America is the land of immigrants.

  12. Hard to make Rick Perry look reasonable and intelligent, but Swalwell managed it.

    Not intending to do so, Swalwell said he wants the vast majority of these young people returned to their home country.

    I might add that from Oakland to Hayward, our lower skilled workers would agree. That last thing we need is more lower skilled, minimally educated undocumented workers undercutting our long time local employed and unemployed.

    When will Swalwell make it his priority to address the needs of our local underclass before spending billions more on these people flooding over the border.

    Do you realize that the proposed $3.7 billion dollars, divided by the current 60,000 coming over in Texas, is equal to over $60,000 per undocumented immigrant.
    You can fly a person, coach class from Texas to Central America for less than $500 per person.
    We are spending $250 per day to house and feed and care for EACH of these new arrivals.

    Mr. Swalwell, start paying attention to the lower income residents in your own district. Stop promoting the further border crossings by people who would come to Alameda County to compete for low wage jobs.

    Go to the carpenters hall in Hayward, see how many carpenter are out of work or working few hours. Wages are down, due to the majority of carpenters on new residential construction being part of undocumented crews hired by sub-contractors.

    Stop trying to burnish your progressive credentials, by inviting ever more thousands to come over illegally.
    BTW, of the "children" over 65% are males between the ages of 15 and 17. They are here to work. Who will they be replacing in your district and at what wage level?

  13. Congressman Swalwell got it right.

    No to the courts; just deport!

    ReplyDelete
  14. 5:39 pm You've got it absolutely right! Amen.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Bottom line is that East Bay progressive Democrats care more about newly arriving undocumented workers than they do about out of work and under employed long time residents.
    Why else would they encourage bringing in ever more low wage workers to compete with our own neighbors?

  17. Speaking of Fortney, where is he these days.

    At one point he said he was moving back to Alameda County.
    Then again, he said he was going to use some of his millions to fund Corbett's campaign against Swalwell.
    Well, he never gave Corbett a dime and I've heard nothing about him moving back.

    Face it, he has been a DC area citizen since January 1973.
    He ain't moving no where.

  18. Some of the right wingers need to look up the words on the statue of liberty. Many of these children are refugees escaping tyranny, rape, and even death.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Some of the left wingers need to look up the words in our laws--that's right, LAWS! We accept refugees, but not those fleeing poverty and tyranny. Big difference between being target by a death squad, such as El Salvador in the 1980s, and simply living in a war-torn country. If an ocean didn't separate us from Europe, Africa and Asia, we'd have even more illegals.

    Time these folks have los revolucions in their home countries.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm not willing to send children back to be raped or killed. You need to do some reading. Many of these refugees are leaving because they will be killed and are escaping death. What will these kids start a revolution with? Rocks against guns doesn't seem like a fair fight. What a Tea Party heartless bastard you are.

  21. Sorry, bitch, but you don't get to make decisions for our country.

    The case is simple, and ultra leftist nuts like you simply want open borders. Not going to happen in anyone's lifetime--certainly not yours.

  25. They are children 8:41. Thousands of them, many under 12 years old. They are coming from the violent and gang ridden countries of South America.

    The facts are they claim to be refugees and they are protected by International and U.S. laws. Every one must receive due process to see if they have legitimate claims.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The loophole needs to be and soon will be closed, which is the only fair way. These 'refugees' will then be repatriated just like Canada and Mexico 'refugees.'

    The loophole has been exploited, and you know it.

    We don't do open borders, not now nor at all.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's NOT a loophole no matter how many times you quote Tea Party talking points. It's the LAW signed by Bush in 2008. YOU don't get to pick and choose which laws to enforce anon 3:45. These children ARE protected by International and US law.

  28. CAFTA provoked this current crisis. The US-Central American Free Trade Agreement restructured trade relations and gave unfettered power to US corporations. This has resulted in the destruction of Central American economies, particularly agriculture. Family farmers' ability to make a living was destroyed by cheap, subsidized US agri-business exports to the region that rake in about 20 billion annually.

    We need to restructure CAFTA to allow Central American governments to protect local business and stimulate local agricultural production even if US corporate profits suffer. Until these nations are able to provide gainful employment for their citizens, people will be displaced from their homelands, disintegrating families and perpetuating the perfect climate for drug trafficking, gangs and violence to flourish.

    ReplyDelete
  29. No cigar. All of the experts have said that this loophole has been EXPLOITED by the 'advocates.' Central American illegals need to go into the same category as Mexican and Canadian illegals. No difference.

    I promise you that the law will be modified post-haste before anything else, including the appropriation Obama wants, is done. I'm glad that you realize that YOU don't get to pick and choose which laws are ENFORCED.

    We must secure the borders, most especially the southern one, and then return all of these illegals post-haste. 'Niagara Falls' must be turned off and everyone stay in their home country. That's what's necessary outside the framework of legal immigration policies.

    The flood is the problem, and once that border is secured--land mines might help, seriously--then we need to round up and deport. As Elvis would say, 'return to sender!'

  31. Anon 8:35 needs to stop listening to the extreme right-wing talk shows. The main cause happens to be Washington's hostility toward leftist Central American governments seeking to level the playing field in one of the most inequitable regions of the world.

    Most prominent is our government's failure to defend Democracy in Honduras when the nations president was ousted in a military coup. Since then, the social reforms that had been implemented have been rolled back. Today Honduras has the dubious distinction of vastly leading the region in the huge number of children fleeing their homeland due to terror.

    In sharp contrast Nicaragua, an equally poor country that receives far less U.S. aid because of our government's hostility toward the Sandinistas, sends very few children across the border. Why? since coming back into power, the Sandinistas have enacted strong programs to allow the poor to become self sufficient.

  32. As to 'pick and choose,' Obama has done that forever.

  33. It's no loophole, it's our own law signed by George Bush in 2008. The law was supposed to ensure that children fleeing persecution or trafficking or other severe abuse were not returned to grave danger. That's not the problem. The problem is too few immigration judges to handle the backlog of cases, including the latest flood of children. Blame that on the Republicans.

    We are a nation of laws and YOU don't get to pick and choose which ones to adhere to. I do hope you will do more reading on this instead of quoting Fox news. Surely, our nation will meet this crisis in a manner befitting our history. Extreme right wing radio and talk show hosts aren't experts even though Tea Party people would want them to be.

    Problem with you people is you want open borders and to accept all people's from all lands who can't make a go of it themselves. Our country would cease to exist the moment that happened and the tyrants would win.

    It's too bad that you don't have an education nor understand how the real world works. Please cease and desist from scribbling your ultra left-wing rantings about having open borders. It's not going to happen. We must and will close the loophole that has been exploited most viciously. Other countries must be put on par with Canada and Mexico.

They have refused to provide the necessary resources to deal with what they call a serious problem because the Tea Party Republicans are acting like children and need to grow up. Calling on you to grow up and start acting like an adult also.

    The bill you cite has no chance because the Republicans can't get out of their own way. In the meantime the laws of our country say the refugees must have their day in court to determine if these children can be sent back safely. We are a nation of laws and you don't get to choose which ones to obey for the rest of us or for our nation. What an anarchist you are!

  64. Anon at 1:14 who's posted the same post many times;

    The conservative editorial board of The Wall Street Journal reamed into congressional Republicans in an editorial published in Saturday's paper, after the House passed a bill Friday night that effectively would put the status of nearly 700,000 young undocumented immigrants in limbo.

    House Republicans passed legislation Friday night to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program established unilaterally by President Barack Obama in 2012. The program shields hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from deportation.

    The WSJ editorial board wrote, however, that the adding on of the DACA legislation to the package only provided " another spectacle of internal disarray" on what should be a path to a Senate majority in November.

    From the editorial:

    "The bill should have been a moment to redirect attention to President Obama's cynical handling of the border problem and to the Democratic Party's immigration divisions. Instead the GOP again gave the country the impression that its highest policy priority is to deport as many children as rapidly as possible back from wherever they came. [...]

    The GOP's Deportation Caucus—led by Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and Ted Cruz of Texas—lobbied House conservatives to resist any immigration compromise and pick a fight with Mr. Boehner. The dissenters demanded an array of policy changes, most notably new restrictions on the President's executive order allowing some undocumented immigrants who were brought here as children to remain in the country.

    Readers may recall that the last Republican in an election year to support deporting immigrant children brought here through no fault of their own was Mitt Romney. A splendid voter attraction that was."

  65. Boy, it looks like the last poster, otherwise know as one-in-the-same, really can't take it. He doesn't believe in the rule of law at all. Only laws that he happens to like. I'm going to stay away from the hyperbole, chants of racism, sexism, etc. and simply put the blame where it belongs--on the extreme elements in BOTH parties.

    The Republicans might not be able to get it together, but they GET IT. Loudly and clearly, they get it. You naysayers simply don't agree with it. Fine. That's what elections are all about. At present a majority of the country, for lack of a better quick slogan agrees with 'return to sender.' The Democrats, other than the great Henry Cuellar of Texas, [He really is a great guy, and he GETS it.], don't have a clue. As a Democrat it really pains me to write this but the party is going to be cut off at the dick, and it deserves to be, since it is an apologist for law breakers and illegals galore. As an ardent ENVIRONMENTALIST and one who is pro-abortion, it kills me to see the Republicans take both the House and Senate, and they will, because these issues will both be thrown under the train.

    Until Democrats stop giving in to the ultra liberal union whores from Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward and the like, they will continue to lose. They will have brought this on themselves and will reap what they sew. The party must be purged of the Jesse Jacksons, Pete Starks--thank G-d he's gone, and other radical whores who pull the rest of us down with them. Cut the cancers lose and then throw them into the fire where they belong.

    Moderation such as Cornyn-Cuellar--look it up to understand it--are the only solution which can combat this epidemic. The border must be secured and we must deport like there is no tomorrow. There is enough blame for all but the correct order of obstructionists is: Democrats, Obama, and then some Republicans. Ahora mismo! Andole!

  66. Boy, it looks like the last poster, otherwise know as one-in-the-same, really can't take it. He doesn't believe in the rule of law at all. Only laws that he happens to like. The law that Bush signed says that refugees have a right to a hearing before they are deported to see if they are in danger if sent back. There is a backlog because Republicans have been loathe to spend the money to get the required number of judges, and heaven forbid the ones the President nominates. These young children will be treated humanely like the LAW says they will. Listen and learn, and then be proud you live in America which doesn't send children back to their death.

  68. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and while 11:09/12:03--one in the same--has chosen to plagiarize my comments and then twist them her way, the bitch would do well to understand that whether it happens now through the bipartisan Cornyn-Cuellar legislation that the Democrats are blocking, that reform is coming and the loophole will be closed.

    Let me elucidate, daughter. The USA returns illegals from both Canada and Mexico without your precious hearings. The law that Bush signed has been exploited to no end because of the loophole which has a provision for such a hearing as you refer to. We are going to plug that leaking 'life preserver' and return the illegals post-haste. Now, if Obama wants to help lead in that regard, wonderful. If not, he will pay a horrible price this November when he loses the senate in addition to the House. He will be effectively neutered and become the lamest of lame ducks for the final two years of his presidency. It will simply be the game of running the clock out and starting anew in 2016. The choice is his and the Democrats to make.

    We'll try not to be too hard on the bitch. After all, she is simply crawling out of her dark hole, the one where the sun don't never shine!

  75. Both parties agree that immigration is likely to play a bigger role in the 2016 presidential election. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the GOP nominee in 2008, has said his party can't win without supporting an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is among the potential candidates to urge the party to liberalize its approach to immigration.

    A GOP-sanctioned "autopsy" of Mitt Romney's 2012 loss made only one policy recommendation: The party "must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform," a term understood to include creating pathways to legal status for millions of immigrants living in the nation illegally.

  80. And then there is the way the GOP moved last week to marginalize themselves with Hispanic voters. Today Hispanics represent 16% of ordinary Americans. By 2050 they will represent 30%. No matter. Not only did the House GOP leadership refuse to bring a popular immigration reform measure to a vote that was passed by a large bi-partisan majority in the Senate. But last Friday, the Republicans also passed a bill to eliminate the Dreamer program that was established by the President to defer the deportation of children brought to America as minors who have known no other country except the USA.

    Most Hispanic Americans do not think of these questions as "policy debates." They take them very personally. They believe that Republicans are not on their side, and that they don't respect their community. And when Hispanic Americans see the vitriol directed by the right wing extremists at buses containing Central American children, they know for a fact that the GOP is opposing immigration reform because much of their base simply does not like Hispanics.

    If anyone had remained unconvinced that was true, the vote on the Dreamer program sealed the deal. To find something to address the children border crisis that would pass with the support of their caucus, the GOP leadership had to keep making their bill meaner and meaner until they satisfied their most extremist members.

    It is likely that this vote will be a watershed moment similar to former GOP California Governor Pete Wilson's support of Prop 187 in the 1990's that turned formerly purple California into a bright blue state. Between 1960 and 1988 California voted for the Republican Presidential nominee in six of seven elections. It has voted Democratic in every Presidential election since 1992.

  81. You're a really odd fellow. I suppose that your bottom line is winning elections--at all costs. Fine for you. Obviously, you make your living as a consultant, operative or some other flak. I suppose it's a living.

    As a Democrat, I vote based on rule of law. Period. I'm sure I'm in an extreme minority. That's fine, too. I have to vote based on principles, not simply what or who is 'sexy' or in vogue at a particular moment in time. I think you do a disservice to Hispanics by lumping them all together and suggesting that their motivation is amnesty for 'their brethren.' But even if that were true, it's still catering to breaking the law to curry political favor. Again, I will never go down that road. Ever.

    I was taught respect for the law and fairness for all, regardless of race, gender, orientation, etc. et al. Neither me nor my family would ever think of subverting the law to curry political favor and win elections. Naive you might say, but without principles and rule of law our society is nothing.

    If this is what the Democratic party is going to be all about, then they will lose the last of the honest, principled voters who believed in stalwarts such as FDR, the Kennedys, and even Bill Clinton, and cater exclusively to a radical, extreme-left fringe.

    They are children. Thousands of them, many under 12 years old. They are coming from the violent and gang ridden countries of South America.

    The facts are they claim to be refugees and they are protected by International and U.S. laws. Every one must receive due process to see if they have legitimate claims.

The law was supposed to ensure that children fleeing persecution or trafficking or other severe abuse were not returned to grave danger. That's not the problem. The problem is too few immigration judges to handle the backlog of cases, including the latest flood of children. Blame that on the Republicans.

    The conservative editorial board of The Wall Street Journal reamed into congressional Republicans in an editorial published in Saturday's paper, after the House passed a bill Friday night that effectively would put the status of nearly 700,000 young undocumented immigrants in limbo.

    House Republicans passed legislation Friday night to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program established unilaterally by President Barack Obama in 2012. The program shields hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from deportation.

    The WSJ editorial board wrote, however, that the adding on of the DACA legislation to the package only provided " another spectacle of internal disarray" on what should be a path to a Senate majority in November.

    From the editorial:

    "The bill should have been a moment to redirect attention to President Obama's cynical handling of the border problem and to the Democratic Party's immigration divisions. Instead the GOP again gave the country the impression that its highest policy priority is to deport as many children as rapidly as possible back from wherever they came. [...]

    The GOP's Deportation Caucus—led by Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and Ted Cruz of Texas—lobbied House conservatives to resist any immigration compromise and pick a fight with Mr. Boehner. The dissenters demanded an array of policy changes, most notably new restrictions on the President's executive order allowing some undocumented immigrants who were brought here as children to remain in the country.

    Readers may recall that the last Republican in an election year to support deporting immigrant children brought here through no fault of their own was Mitt Romney. A splendid voter attraction that was."

  109. This isn't an immigration problem, said the New York Times-it's a refugee crisis.

In El Salvador, murders of kids have soared 77% in a year.

  110. Both parties agree that immigration is likely to play a bigger role in the 2016 presidential election. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the GOP nominee in 2008, has said his party can't win without supporting an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is among the potential candidates to urge the party to liberalize its approach to immigration.

    A GOP-sanctioned "autopsy" of Mitt Romney's 2012 loss made only one policy recommendation: The party "must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform," a term understood to include creating pathways to legal status for millions of immigrants living in the nation illegally.

  128. To the sexist racist of the last two posts: The latest poll shows how the majority of Americans view the subject:

    The results of a Reuters/Ipsos poll highlight the complexity of the child migrant issue for Obama, who has sought to emphasize his compassion while also insisting that his administration plans to send home most of the children, many of whom have fled violence in their homelands.

    The poll, conducted on July 31-Aug. 5, found that 51 percent of Americans believe the unaccompanied children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border should be allowed to remain in the country for some length of time.

    That included 38 percent who thought the unaccompanied youngsters should be sheltered and cared for until it was deemed safe for them to return home. Thirteen percent said the children should be allowed to stay in the United States, while 32 percent said the children should be immediately deported.

    "Overall, people are humane and they understand that no matter what our situation is with the budget, whether or not we can afford this, these are kids. No matter what the immigration system is, they are innocent," said Lance Lee, 42, of Alabama, who took part in the survey.

    Back to your war-torn, poverty-ridden countries to fix it yourselves. This country had a revolution in 1776. Go have your own. Don't be a burden on others. Since they're treking through Mexico why not stay there? Anyone thought about that? Not too likely. After all, Los Estados Unidos is 'the wealthy land!' It's all about $$$$. Don't kid yourselves.

    The answer will be Cornyn-Cuellar after Nov. Unless Obama wants to be a complete lame duck, he'll get behind this bipartisan legislation which is the only answer and puts Central American illegals on par with illegals from Canada and Mexico and closes the current loophole. The Democrats will have lost congress after Nov. If Obama and Barbie Lee want to do something constructive they'll follow congress' lead after January, otherwise we run out the clock the next president will sing the song that a majority of Americans do now, 'Return to sender!'

    You need to do a lot more reading about why these children are here and stop spewing Tea Party hatred and extreme right-wing venom. Many will be killed/raped if they return. This is fact not fiction.

    They are children. Thousands of them, many under 12 years old. They are coming from the violent and gang ridden countries of South America.

    The facts are they claim to be refugees and they are protected by International and U.S. laws. Every one must receive due process to see if they have legitimate claims.

    It's no loophole, it's our own law signed by George Bush in 2008. The law was supposed to ensure that children fleeing persecution or trafficking or other severe abuse were not returned to grave danger. That's not the problem. The problem is too few immigration judges to handle the backlog of cases, including the latest flood of children. Blame that on the Republicans.

    We are a nation of laws and YOU don't get to pick and choose which ones to adhere to. I do hope you will do more reading on this instead of quoting Fox news. Surely, our nation will meet this crisis in a manner befitting our history. Extreme right wing radio and talk show hosts aren't experts even though Tea Party people, and you, would want them to be.

    How many children killed or raped is acceptable to you? Your lack of education on this subject is remarkably underwhelming!

    Game is over for you even if YOU don't believe in American laws, all the recent polls, all the conservative newspaper editorials, etc. Get out of the way Mr. anarchist!

  139. It's really a shame that you can't answer the question posited below, a very honest one. However, the ultra-left radical fringe such as you people don't hail from the school of knowledge so one needn't try to engage with you cerebrally. Need to say it again because it's the American way: after Nov., Cornyn-Cuellar is happening whether you like it or not!


    We definitely agree. LEAVE IT!

    Back to your war-torn, poverty-ridden countries to fix it yourselves. This country had a revolution in 1776. Go have your own. Don't be a burden on others. Since they're treking through Mexico why not stay there? Anyone thought about that? Not too likely. After all, Los Estados Unidos is 'the wealthy land!' It's all about $$$$. Don't kid yourselves.

    The answer will be Cornyn-Cuellar after Nov. Unless Obama wants to be a complete lame duck, he'll get behind this bipartisan legislation which is the only answer and puts Central American illegals on par with illegals from Canada and Mexico and closes the current loophole. The Democrats will have lost congress after Nov. If Obama and Barbie Lee want to do something constructive they'll follow congress' lead after January, otherwise we run out the clock the next president will sing the song that a majority of Americans do now, 'Return to sender!'

Not only did the House GOP leadership refuse to bring a popular immigration reform measure to a vote that was passed by a large bi-partisan majority in the Senate.

  142. Part of an AP article

    Both parties agree that immigration is likely to play a bigger role in the 2016 presidential election. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the GOP nominee in 2008, has said his party can't win without supporting an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is among the potential candidates to urge the party to liberalize its approach to immigration.

    A GOP-sanctioned "autopsy" of Mitt Romney's 2012 loss made only one policy recommendation: The party "must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform," a term understood to include creating pathways to legal status for millions of immigrants living in the nation illegally.

    Note-----The Republicans can't win a presidential election if they let the extreme right dictate their policies.

    Such leading members of the Demobstercratic Party as Barbara Lee are pretending that they are motivated by humanitarian concerns in the positions they have taken in regard to aiding, helping, and assisting. and quite likely also permanently settling in our country, the huge numbers of undocumented aliens who recently have been entering the US.

    However, and just like virtually every position that the leadership of the DNC has taken for at last several decades, in other words going back to at least the1920's, the phonies, con men, and scam artists who comprise the overwhelming majority of the leadership of the DNC, and including in their latest desperate attempt to increase illegal immigration, are actually motivated by a desire to win elections, and including since they are well aware that people who are poor, uneducated, on welfare, or recent immigrants almost always vote for the DP, and while the overwhelming majority of people who are intelligent,. educated, employed, NOT on welfare, and even slightly successful overwhelming vote Republican

    But the DP is in serious trouble. In other words, in recent decades more and more people have caught on to the fact that the DP is the party of lies, garbage, nonsense, stupidity, street crime, idiocy, destroyed schools and neighborhoods, crooked lawyers, and social programs that do not work.

    So most likely based on recent trends, the DP would be looking at big losses in the soon November 2014 elections, and quite likely even many times drastically larger losses two years from now in the November 2016 elections.

    So as to avoid being quite likely almost totally destroyed and virtually voted out of existence in November 2016, the Demobstercratic Party therefore needs to get in still higher gear with more and more and ever increasing welfare programs, making massive vote fraud still easier, and increasing illegal immigration.

    So that is the real reason that Barbara Lee, Obama, and various other members of the leadership of the DP are in favor of increasing illegal immigration.

  145. Just how big an ignoramus are you. It's the Republicans that are in the way and to blame for failing to fix problems at the border. They have refused to provide the necessary resources to deal with what they call a serious problem because the Tea Party Republicans are acting like children and need to grow up. Calling on you to grow up and start acting like an adult also.

    The bill you cite has no chance because the Republicans can't get out of their own way. In the meantime the laws of our country say the refugees must have their day in court to determine if these children can be sent back safely. We are a nation of laws and you don't get to choose which ones to obey for the rest of us or for our nation.

  146. This poll and all the others taken show why you are very wrong. I know you would like to deny the results, but this is realty!

    The results of a Reuters/Ipsos poll highlight the complexity of the child migrant issue for Obama, who has sought to emphasize his compassion while also insisting that his administration plans to send home most of the children, many of whom have fled violence in their homelands.

    The poll, conducted on July 31-Aug. 5, found that 51 percent of Americans believe the unaccompanied children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border should be allowed to remain in the country for some length of time.

    That included 38 percent who thought the unaccompanied youngsters should be sheltered and cared for until it was deemed safe for them to return home. Thirteen percent said the children should be allowed to stay in the United States, while 32 percent said the children should be immediately deported.

    "Overall, people are humane and they understand that no matter what our situation is with the budget, whether or not we can afford this, these are kids. No matter what the immigration system is, they are innocent," said Lance Lee, 42, of Alabama, who took part in the survey.

    So, get on board Mr. conservative extremist, whether you like it or not, America has spoken, and all the polls show you lose!

  171. You can deny the polls all you want but here's the reality: FACT CHECK

    The poll, conducted on July 31-Aug. 5, found that 51 percent of Americans believe the unaccompanied children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border should be allowed to remain in the country for some length of time.

    That included 38 percent who thought the unaccompanied youngsters should be sheltered and cared for until it was deemed safe for them to return home. Thirteen percent said the children should be allowed to stay in the United States, while 32 percent said the children should be immediately deported.

    "Overall, people are humane and they understand that no matter what our situation is with the budget, whether or not we can afford this, these are kids. No matter what the immigration system is, they are innocent," said Lance Lee, 42, of Alabama, who took part in the survey.

    So, get on board Mr. conservative extremist, whether you like it or not, America has spoken and all the polls show you lose!

  174. It's really a shame that you can't answer the question posited below, a very honest one. However, the ultra-left radical fringe such as you people don't hail from the school of knowledge so one needn't try to engage with you cerebrally. Need to say it again because it's the American way: after Nov., Cornyn-Cuellar is happening whether you like it or not!


    We definitely agree. LEAVE IT!

    Back to your war-torn, poverty-ridden countries to fix it yourselves. This country had a revolution in 1776. Go have your own. Don't be a burden on others. Since they're treking through Mexico why not stay there? Anyone thought about that? Not too likely. After all, Los Estados Unidos is 'the wealthy land!' It's all about $$$$. Don't kid yourselves.

    The answer will be Cornyn-Cuellar after Nov. Unless Obama wants to be a complete lame duck, he'll get behind this bipartisan legislation which is the only answer and puts Central American illegals on par with illegals from Canada and Mexico and closes the current loophole. The Democrats will have lost congress after Nov. If Obama and Barbie Lee want to do something constructive they'll follow congress' lead after January, otherwise we run out the clock the next president will sing the song that a majority of Americans do now, 'Return to sender!'

    Part of an AP article

    Both parties agree that immigration is likely to play a bigger role in the 2016 presidential election. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the GOP nominee in 2008, has said his party can't win without supporting an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is among the potential candidates to urge the party to liberalize its approach to immigration.

    A GOP-sanctioned "autopsy" of Mitt Romney's 2012 loss made only one policy recommendation: The party "must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform," a term understood to include creating pathways to legal status for millions of immigrants living in the nation illegally.

    Note-----The Republicans can't win a presidential election if they let the extreme right dictate their policies.

    And then there is the way the GOP moved to marginalize themselves with Hispanic voters. Today Hispanics represent 16% of ordinary Americans. By 2050 they will represent 30%. No matter. Not only did the House GOP leadership refuse to bring a popular immigration reform measure to a vote that was passed by a large bi-partisan majority in the Senate. But last Friday, the Republicans also passed a bill to eliminate the Dreamer program that was established by the President to defer the deportation of children brought to America as minors who have known no other country except the USA.

    Most Hispanic Americans do not think of these questions as "policy debates." They take them very personally. They believe that Republicans are not on their side, and that they don't respect their community. And when Hispanic Americans see the vitriol directed by the right wing extremists at buses containing Central American children, they know for a fact that the GOP is opposing immigration reform because much of their base simply does not like Hispanics.

    If anyone had remained unconvinced that was true, the vote on the Dreamer program sealed the deal. To find something to address the children border crisis that would pass with the support of their caucus, the GOP leadership had to keep making their bill meaner and meaner until they satisfied their most extremist members.

    It is likely that this vote will be a watershed moment similar to former GOP California Governor Pete Wilson's support of Prop 187 in the 1990's that turned formerly purple California into a bright blue state. Between 1960 and 1988 California voted for the Republican Presidential nominee in six of seven elections. It has voted Democratic in every Presidential election since 1992.
