Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on March 31, 2013 by Allahpundit

A day after labor and business groups struck a deal on a new guest-worker program, key senators said they are within reach of finalizing an immigration overhaul proposal.

Members of the Senate’s bipartisan “gang of eight,” which is crafting a comprehensive immigration bill, said they have not signed off on a proposal just yet, but are likely to unveil it next week.

“With the agreement between business and labor, every major policy issue has been resolved,” Sen. Charles E. Schumer said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

***

Sen. Jeff Flake, Arizona Republican and another member of the gang, said they are “much closer” with labor and business coming together on the guest-worker issue.

“That doesn’t mean we’ve crossed every ‘i’ or dotted every ‘t,’” he said. “We’ve still got a ways to go in terms of looking at the language, making sure that it’s everything we thought it would be,” he said. “But we’re closer, certainly.”

Mr. Flake says he has no intentions of walking away from the debate, but he acknowledged that Mr. Rubio, Florida Republican, is an influential voice in the debate.

“He’s extremely important to this effort,” Mr. Flake said.

***

“Reports that the bipartisan group of eight senators have agreed on a legislative proposal are premature,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican who is among the lawmakers working on legislation…

“Eight senators from seven states have worked on this bill to serve as a starting point for discussion about fixing our broken immigration system,” Rubio said. “But arriving at a final product will require it to be properly submitted for the American people’s consideration, through the other 92 senators from 43 states that weren’t part of this initial drafting process.”

Fellow Republican, Rep. Peter King of New York, was skeptical about any prospects for a deal.

“Eight guys in a room saying the border is going to be secure is not enough,” said King, who is not working on the bipartisan proposal.

***

Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Senate’s Gang of Eight immigration reform team, has sent a strongly-worded letter to Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, warning against an expected Democratic effort to rush an immigration bill through the committee. Specifically, Rubio suggests — in wording that is actually more than a suggestion but less than an outright demand — that Leahy hold multiple hearings on the Gang of Eight proposal, once it is actually written and introduced in the committee.

“I am aware that the Judiciary Committee, both under your leadership and under the leadership of your predecessors, has conducted a number of hearings related to immigration reform,” Rubio, who is not a member of the Judiciary Committee, writes. “I am certain that those hearings deepened your knowledge of these issues and will guide much of your work this Congress. But they cannot be a substitute for fresh hearings to consider specific legislation as part of a national conversation.”…

“I cannot urge strongly enough that [discussion of the bill] start with meaningful hearings,” Rubio said. “Of particular importance is a full consideration of border security proposals, including testimony from border security experts, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and others. A key feature of our bipartisan approach has been an insistence on meeting border security and other enforcement triggers before unauthorized immigrants can apply for permanent residence. But the success of these triggers will require examining what the American taxpayer’s commitment must be in order to make this security plan a reality.”…

Rubio’s letter places him firmly in line with the Republicans on the committee — Sessions, Charles Grassley, Orrin Hatch, John Cornyn, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz — who have publicly called for a more deliberative process than Leahy has suggested.

***

Axelrod on NBC’s “Meet the Press” dismissed GOP suggestions that President Obama was not serious about immigration reform and sought to use the issue to score political points and win Hispanic voters.

“I understand their paranoia, because it was a terribly different issue for them and continues to be,” said Axelrod. But, he added Obama “wants this accomplishment.”

“This is a legacy item for him. There’s no doubt in my mind that he wants to pass comprehensive immigration reform,” he said.

“I think we’ve got a deal, and we’ve got to write the legislation,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of The Union.” Graham is part of a bipartisan group of eight senators working an effort to develop broad immigration reform legislation…

He expressed confidence it could pass both the Senate and the GOP-controlled House.

“It’s got to be written up. We haven’t signed off; there’s a few details yet. But conceptually, we have an agreement between business and labor, between ourselves. It has to be drafted; it will be rolled out next week” said Graham.

VorDaj on March 31, 2013 at 11:04 PM

And the Flake.

If they’re smart they forget about amnesty, which would kill the deal, and instead stick with an enforceable guest worker program that doesn’t require American citizens to get a biometric national ID cards and accept stop-and-frisk practices nationwide. Perhaps the guest workers should put up some sort of collateral on entering the country and when they leave in a verifiable fashion they’ll not only get their collateral back but the right to return for the following season. Perhaps the employer should have to pay some percentage of their pay into an account that the guest worker will receive back when they leave.

If the Gang of Ocho demands amnesty then forget the entire, comprehensive POS bill, no guest worker program either!

Frankly, if guest worker program is actually done right I’d probably support more than 20,000. That number actually seems low to me. But amnesty for millions of socialists is unacceptable. Even if there are only 11 million illegals, which I doubt, if they are legalized they will bring in tens of millions of additional members of their extended families. It will destroy the country of my birth. It will be America In Name Only.

Is anyone else suspicious of this statement? Who agreed with what?

Amjean on April 1, 2013 at 6:49 AM

This issue of illegal immigrant amnesty is extremely important to me. I am totally against granting amnesty to people who entered the country illegally. We need to enforce our immigration laws, period.

Here is a relevant post on the issue. Some people you may not expect are also for amnesty…

Warning: Beware of egomaniacal, overly self-promoting frauds like Sarah Palin who also support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

The following aired on October 21, 2008 during the broadcast of “Aquí y Ahora” on Univision Network. The following excerpt was taken from that interview: ( http://www.univision.com/content/content.jhtml?chid=3&schid=10414&secid=0&cid=1716304 )

Governor, let me ask you about immigration. How many undocumented immigrants are there in Alaska?

-I don’t know, I don’t know. That’s a good question.

As governor, how do you deal with them? Do you think they all should be deported?

-There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant -there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants- not only economically is that just an impossibility but that’s not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue that we face with illegal immigration.

Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?

-No, I do not. I do not. Not total amnesty. You know, people have got to follow the rules. They’ve got to follow the bar, and we have got to make sure that there is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in line for services being provided and those opportunities that this great country provides.

To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?

-I do because I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be treated equally and fairly in this country.

————
From here: http://www.americanpatrol.com/GOP/PALIN/ProAmnesty091205SP_.html
Lars Larson interview with Sarah Palin – December 3, 2009

Note: Lars Larson is a talk show host on KXL – AM 750 — Portland, Oregon

Lars Larson: The amnesty proposal that was defeated in the Congress — in your view, was that amnesty for illegals and would you back amnesty or a path to citizenship, as the current president calls it?

Sarah Palin: … And you know, there are humane ways to deal with the 11-13 million illegal aliens that are in our country right now, but if they’re not going to follow the rules, they need to get out.

Lars: So you would be in favor, not of a path to create legalization process, but tell them, if you’re not here legally, leave and, in the meantime put up a barrier to keep new illegals out?

Palin: Uh, I would absolutely prefer the latter that you’re suggesting right there. To secure the border and to not allow this generous amnesty that the Democrats are proposing. No, that’s not how we’re going to create or form an economy – that’s not how we are going to create a fairness and equality to allow people to be here illegally.
——–
Notes from article linked above:
Since Illegal aliens haven’t followed the rules as it is, when Sarah Palin said, “but if they’re not going to follow the rules, they need to get out,” she must mean new rules. When she said, “I would absolutely prefer the latter,” she was agreeing with Lars about putting up barriers, but not necessarily when he said, “if you’re not here illegally, leave.”
Palin has cleverly left room for proposing a path to citizenship for all illegal aliens presently in the U.S. Some call that amnesty.

Somebody is going have to explain why this trial has taken on the life that it has. They’re even casting a Lifetime made-for-tv movie about this crazy woman.

I support someone like Ted Cruz on his issue. He is solid.

uh huh..for now. Blind trust isn’t wise BG.
Rubio was sold too in 2010. Now he is the gang leader.

Well, I’ll support him until he stops being solid. I believe in rewarding those who stand up for the right things.

Much like Casey Anthony..
It has all the right elements for the high drama that people just love
to watch and gawk at. Kinky sex and murder-attractive victim and perp. The media feeds the people.
The reason why Jerry Springer(and similar shows) was even on the air.
Unfortunately, that is our society.

The parts I have watched, have been a joke and a complete waste of time. The judge has let in so much crap that is not relevant and helped maintain the insanity. Claiming she was a victim of domestic violence/abuse. It disgusts me for all the real victims of abuse. Its a mockery. This is about saving her from the needle.

I support him as well..and agree.
You just show your usual signs of obsession.
Was a friendly reality check.
You just couldn’t help yourself with the Palin post.
Ya know..I sometimes agree with you but then you add
insane drivel to the good parts..so it is hard to take you seriously.
I really hope one day you evolve in your posting style.
You could be a good poster.

bazil9 on April 1, 2013 at 8:33 AM

Sorry, you are right. I just get very worked up sometimes. I need to show more self-restraint at times.

bluegill on April 1, 2013 at 8:43 AM

Okay then.
This is a very important issue to me as well.
Put your energy in to helping defeat this and post what is relevant
now. Palin isn’t part of this at all..
quit worrying and obsessing over Palin and who likes her or doesn’t.
You may find a real discussion among HA then, instead of the animosity that you create for yourself.
We are in a war..talking about Palin is a waste of time..best served elsewhere. Stay on topic and focus. Palin isn’t your enemy. She backed your new fave guy. Your fighting the wrong battle and will loose the war.

I have a conference call to prep for. Have a nice day and hopefully you meant what you said.

Have a great day girl!
see ya.

You all are probably familiar with Cody Wilson, the guy who made a big impact against the new gun control push with his 3D printed AR-15 magazine. The Department of Justice and Homeland Security has seized his website: http://defcad.org/ and are pressing charges.
His web site is protected by the 1st amendment!

FloatingRock on April 1, 2013 at 2:43 AM

Dude, that is insane. This should be a top HA story.
