A draft of a White House immigration proposal obtained by USA TODAY would allow illegal immigrants to become legal permanent residents within eight years

According to the White House draft, people would need to pass a criminal background check, submit biometric information and pay fees to qualify for the new visa. If approved, they would be allowed to legally reside in the U.S. for four years, work and leave the country for short periods of time. After the four years, they could then reapply for an extension…

The immigrants could then apply for legal permanent residence, commonly known as a green card, within eight years if they learn English and “the history and government of the United States” and pay back taxes. That would then clear the path for them to apply for U.S. citizenship…

The draft obtained by USA TODAY does not include sections that would alter the nation’s legal immigration system to adjust the future flow of legal immigrants, which is expected to be a critical component of any immigration overhaul.

***

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding new details about President Obama’s immigration plan, as first reported by USA Today:

“It’s a mistake for the White House to draft immigration legislation without seeking input from Republican members of Congress. President Obama’s leaked immigration proposal is disappointing to those of us working on a serious solution. The President’s bill repeats the failures of past legislation. It fails to follow through on previously broken promises to secure our borders, creates a special pathway that puts those who broke our immigration laws at an advantage over those who chose to do things the right way and come here legally, and does nothing to address guest workers or future flow, which serious immigration experts agree is critical to preventing future influxes of illegal immigrants.

“Much like the President’s self-described ‘stop gap’ Deferred Action measure last year, this legislation is half-baked and seriously flawed. It would actually make our immigration problems worse, and would further undermine the American people’s confidence in Washington’s ability to enforce our immigration laws and reform our broken immigration system.

“If actually proposed, the President’s bill would be dead on arrival in Congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come.”

***

“This is the president torpedoing his own plan. It shows me that he’s really not serious,” Mr. Paul, Kentucky Republican, said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“There are many people who think Democrats bring up these ideas as wedge issues, they don’t really ever want to pass them because then they would no longer have the Republicans to blame. They set themselves up for failure by putting something up there that’s untenable.

“It seems to me to show that really the president doesn’t want immigration reform.”

***

This morning, Representative Paul Ryan had no kind words for the president’s proposed immigration legislation and the White House’s decision to leak it yesterday. He explained that “leaking this out sets things in the wrong direction,” “makes [immigration reform] that much more difficult.”

The congressman laid out his criticism in blunt terms, saying that the question from the beginning on this immigration debate has been, “Is the president looking for partisan advantage, or a bipartisan law?” The White House’s release of its own plan at this time, Ryan said, is a clear indication that the president is doing the former, “looking for partisan advantage,” which is “counterproductive” for actual efforts to reform the U.S. immigration system.

***

Schumer, a New York Democrat and a close ally to the White House, said he has not seen the draft proposals but, along with the Democrats working on a compromise, met with Obama this week to talk about progress being made on Capitol Hill. Schumer acknowledged that a single-party proposal would have a much more difficult time becoming law and urged the bipartisan group of senators to keep meeting to find common ground.

“I am very hopeful that in March we will have a bipartisan bill,” Schumer said. “And, you know, it’s obvious if a Democrat — the president or anyone else — puts out what they want on their own, (it) is going to be different than when you have a bipartisan agreement. But the only way we’re going to get something done is with a bipartisan agreement.”

Denis McDonough, the president’s top White House official, said Mr. Obama’s aides are continuing to work with a bipartisan group of senators despite harsh criticism Saturday night from a key Republican after a newspaper reported what it said were details of the administration’s immigration plan.

“We’ve not proposed anything to Capitol Hill yet,” Mr. McDonough said on ABC’s “This Week” in his first appearance as chief of staff. “We’re just going to be ready. We have developed each of these proposals so we have them in a position so that we can succeed.”…

“He says it’s dead on arrival if proposed?” Mr. McDonough said of Mr. Rubio’s comments. “Well, let’s make sure that it doesn’t have to be proposed, let’s make sure that that group up there, the gang of eight, makes some good progress on these efforts, as much as they say they want to. That’s exactly what we intend to do, to work with them.”

Our beloved pathetic president hasn’t an original thought in his brainwashed head.

He is no friend of the Constitution, or of the office which he unfortunately holds. A “Constitutional Scholar” would hold dear the protections of the Second Amendment, were he not philosophically against said principals.

The lame media did not do its job in the run-up to the 2008 election; in fact, they did all they could to obfuscate the facts.

hillbillyjim on February 17, 2013 at 10:47 PM

Every point you made is correct sir. However, write off the media and be more troubled by the fact that McCain and Ronmey like the feeling of their thumbs up the ass rather than bringing those same points up to the attention of apparently too many people.

I think we are all tragically awaiting that hammer to fall.

It is not gonna be pretty.

The news that dribbles out about it, is nothing like 0 said it would be.

It is done for nefarious reasons.

We shall all suffer for it.

How we shall suffer? One only need look to history and see what has happened to other nations whose finances have gone out of control.

People speak about Zimbabwe, will we get as bad as that?

I don’t think so.

We may end up like Greece or some other EU country going broke.

Will there be riots in the streets?

Your guess is as good as mine.

I do believe inflation will hit and hit hard… no amount of printing money will help but will worsen it.

Should the govt actually physically run out of money, and no one will lend us any, I do not know what will happen.

Will the gov’t actually steal americans savings? I have heard that.

The poor ones are the ones who will be hit hardest, and who will cry out to the gov’t for help and none will come.

If that happens, we be in a whole heap of trouble.

I can only hope and pray that the people elected come to their senses long before that.

0 is a stubborn bastage, he wants what he wants, and nothing less.

He will be our demise.

A continuation of The Culprit Fay by Joseph Rodman Drake.

III.

‘Tis the hour of fairy ban and spell:
The wood-tick has kept the minutes well;
He has counted them all with click and stroke,
Deep in the heart of the mountain oak,
And he has awakened the sentry elve
Who sleeps with him in the haunted tree,
To bid him ring the hour of twelve,
And call the fays to their revelry;
Twelve small strokes on his tinkling bell -
(‘Twas made of the white snail’s pearly shell:- )
“Midnight comes, and all is well!
Hither, hither, wing your way!
‘Tis the dawn of the fairy day.”

IV.

They come from beds of lichen green,
They creep from the mullen’s velvet screen;
Some on the backs of beetles fly
From the silver tops of moon-touched trees,
Where they swung in their cobweb hammocks high,
And rock’d about in the evening breeze;
Some from the hum-bird’s downy nest -
They had driven him out by elfin power,
And pillowed on plumes of his rainbow breast,
Had slumbered there till the charmed hour;
Some had lain in the scoop of the rock,
With glittering ising-stars inlaid;
And some had opened the four-o’clock,
And stole within its purple shade.
And now they throng the moonlight glade,
Above – below – on every side,
Their little minim forms arrayed
In the tricksy pomp of fairy pride!

@Jackalope I’m very sorry to discourage you, but in all honesty, I believe that its too late to right this ship. Also, we have bigger dangers than the progs. I’m extensively well travelled, have lived many years in muzzie nations. I’m now hearing rumblings from there. The Arab Spring is the worst thing to happen. This secular PC crap that we portray is weakness in their eyes. Unknown to most of our citizens, they’re slowly banding together, be it Shia or Sunni. The next five years would be difficult. If we’re economically paralyzed, its over. I just pray that I’m wrong.

Good Tommy, also unknown to an ignorant citizenry Obama brings them together. The ‘Arab Spring’ is all bs and he owns it.

He models the world in their/his favor (all the same) and the stupid (in the majority) Americans are out to lunch, literally/figuratively.

May all who brung him, with no exceptions, and those who kept him, be destroyed by him. They deserve NO less.

All others make preparations for you and families because his mission is just about to go obvious. The first 4 years were stealth and nothing compared to his real aims.

Look around. The muzzies succeed apace at taking over…the muzzie brothers that is, and he is them.

@CoffeeLover Very true. And thats what scares me. The muzzies, on their own, can’t counter us. I’m gonna sound a bit tinfoiled to you, but among Arab political elites, its an open fact that they have formed a secret pact with China to weaken us further. And these are supposed to be our ‘allies’. With Chinese growing economic and military strength combined with Arab oil wealth makes a formidable enemy.

Umm, I would like to hear a Somerset accent….

KCB on February 18, 2013 at 1:25 AM

The frustrating part is the $$ we keep sending to the mid-east.

Hello..:)

Dire Straits on February 18, 2013 at 1:31 AM

Dire is here. Thankfully a meteor did not ruin his collection of pink Flyod vinyls.

SparkPlug on February 18, 2013 at 1:32 AM

Goodnight all. Let’s all make this week a good one.

Wow! I am purposely avoiding the subject. My take. Something bad is gonna happen to the US. Catastrophic. We will go into offensive mode. There will be at least one nuke. We look weak to the world. We will be hit. Then, and only then, will we hit back harder. Our only hope is that it will wake people up, because this Arab Spring BS is going to play a major role in us being hit. There, I said it.

Good evening..:)

Dire Straits on February 18, 2013 at 1:27 AM

Just to get away from the gloom and doom, and to throw a little something different into the mix, this is for all of you music lovers.

I promise it’s different than what you’re used to, and worth it at that.

hillbillyjim on February 18, 2013 at 1:37 AM

There, I said it.

Didn’t mean to be short. I was just keeping it to myself.

@Scrumpy Sorry. My net conn is giving me trouble. To answer your quest, sadly, the ordinary man on the street does support the MBH. Their faith binds them to that philosophy, and in our thinking, extremism.

KCB on February 18, 2013 at 1:41 AM

And before our resident Chinese expert (think its daikocu or sumthin) comes in and starts arguing with me, let me assure him that I speak from the Arab end of the isle, not his end. :-)

tommy71 on February 18, 2013 at 1:42 AM

Captain Sparky Cook still can’t find his rum barrels? ;-)

I did pull up a fav band from somerset called the wurzles, funny guys but they have the very strong accent!

I however do not have such a strong accent, not really liking it, but I do have that ‘proper’ english accent :-)

Best I could find!

Pretty heavy but nice. I wonder what Chrissy’s sounds like???

KCB on February 18, 2013 at 1:48 AM

@Scrumpy I lovez the ‘proper’ Brit accent. Sounds really good. :-)

Scrumpy on February 18, 2013 at 1:44 AM

Irony abounds. Your link goes to a different Bristol — mine goes to Bristol VA/TN — when country music was born.

hillbillyjim on February 18, 2013 at 1:48 AM

Well, better said, when popular country music was born.

hillbillyjim on February 18, 2013 at 1:50 AM

KCB on February 18, 2013 at 1:48 AM

Well sort of like that lol…when I talk to my sister it really gets thick! lol…

But now I sound to me family like an american, but to okies, I still sound like a brit, funny that innit!

Scrumpy on February 18, 2013 at 1:52 AM

Chrissy sounds like Kate Winslet? ;-)

Strangely enough, each town has it’s own accent, the Bristol accent is a little different to my Yeovil accent… not by much tho.
