House Republicans Unveil Amnesty Plan
Last Thursday at their annual retreat, House Republican leadership released its proposal for amnesty legislation. (House GOP Immigration Principles) The two-page proposal, remarkably similar to the Senate Gang of Eight’s outline released ahead of their mass guest worker amnesty bill, is in the form of six principles to guide the GOP in fixing our “broken” immigration system. (Compare Senate Gang of Eight Outline)
The first component of the proposal is a large-scale amnesty for the 12 million illegal aliens currently in the United States. Under the plan, illegal aliens will be granted legal status if they “come forward” and “admit their culpability,” undergo “rigorous” background checks, pay “significant” fines and back taxes, learn English and civics, and be able to financially support themselves. (House GOP Immigration Principles) According to the outline, “[c]riminal aliens, gang members, and sex offenders” will be ineligible. The Gang of Eight made similar claims but it turned out they lied about criminal aliens and gang members not being eligible for amnesty as well as lied about the requirement to pay back taxes and learn English. Notably, the document makes no mention of ineligible illegal aliens being subject to deportation and even refers to illegal aliens as “Individuals Living Outside the Rule of Law,” which further demonstrates the pro-amnesty influence in drafting these principles.
In addition to this one-size-fits-all amnesty provision, the House GOP plan calls for a direct path to citizenship for illegal aliens allegedly brought to the U.S. as minors, or so-called “DREAMers.” In fact, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is reportedly crafting House leadership’s own version of the bill (along with Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte (R-VA)), known as the Kids Act, and although he has yet to release legislative language, the principles reveal that they will be granted citizenship through an expedited process that would only require them to graduate college or serve in the Armed Forces.
Regarding enforcement, the Republican plan only offers a generic goal of “securing our country’s borders, enforcing our laws, and implementing robust enforcement measures.” Interestingly, like the Senate bill, the workplace enforcement section does not specifically mention the proven E-Verify program, which raises the possibility of them gutting the existing program and developing a new one. Moreover, the plan declares that “[w]e must secure our borders now” but does not specifically call for any border fencing. The proposal also includes a cursory statement on implementing a biometric entry-exit system which has been required by law for over a decade.
In addition to granting amnesty and a generic nod to border and interior enforcement, the GOP plan also proposes to increase legal immigration. First, despite 20 million Americans being unemployed or underemployed, the principles remarkably claim that “[v]isa and green card allocations need to reflect the needs of employers” indicating that GOP Leadership prioritizes the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s desire for cheap foreign labor over the best interests of American workers. Second, the broad language appears to propose giving green cards to foreign graduates of U.S. universities in “high skilled fields,” even though they will compete directly with U.S. graduates. Finally, it appears that the plan will shift our green card system from a primarily family-based distribution to one that is more employment-based as well as repealing the green card lottery.
In sum, the House Republican immigration “principles” are noteworthy because they are virtually identical to core elements of the 1,200 page amnesty bill the Senate passed last year, despite the GOP document declaring that “we will not go to a conference with the Senate’s immigration bill.” (House GOP Immigration Principles) Additionally, the plan repeats the same mistakes of the 1986 amnesty. In the 1986 amnesty bill, Congress granted amnesty to illegal aliens and promised enforcement of the laws, yet the enforcement never came and the illegal alien population has since quadrupled. House Republican leadership, however, appears to be optimistic that their proposal will somehow work when others have failed. Just like Gang of Eight Senator Chuck Schumer said in 1986 when he spearheaded the last amnesty efforts, House GOP leaders promise that once their plan is implemented, “our immigration laws will indeed be enforced.” (Id.)
FAIR blasted the Republican principles for catering to special interests at the expense of the American worker. “The Republican principles call for illegal aliens to be allowed to ‘live legally and without fear in the U.S.’ of having the law enforced against them. This is clearly and undeniably amnesty. There is one way for illegal aliens to ‘get right with the law,’ and that is to obey the law,” charged Dan Stein, FAIR’s president. (FAIR Press Release, Jan. 30, 2014) “In short, the principles offered by the House leadership not only ignore the core interests of the American people, they willingly sacrifice those interests to satisfy the demands of powerful special interest groups.” (Id.)
Is this yet another ploy by our Representatives or are McConnell’s words true
Trust is not something that they have worked to instill
A watchful eye - determined activism - and a United Front
Eyeing a new majority, Senate Republicans are seeking to trample the immigration reform blueprint crafted by their counterparts in the House.
They are careful not to criticize the substance of the House GOP’s new set of principles by simply saying the chances of crafting a new immigration law this year are remote. Should amnesty.”
Guilty Verdict for Men Accused of Coast Guard Murder
United States Coast Guard
Posted: Wednesday, February 5, 2014 4:00 pm
More than a year after the death of a veteran Coast Guard officer near Santa Cruz Island, a Mexican national has been found guilty of second-degree murder and other federal charges in connection with the crime, according to the LA Times.
Jose Meija-Leyva, of Ensenada, Mexico, was found guilty Wednesday by a federal court and could face a maximum sentece of life in prison.
His accomplice in the attack, Manuel Beltran-Higuera, also of Ensanada, was convicted as an accessory after the fact and could face a maximum of 60 years in prison.
This deadly attack marked the first occurrence of a Coast Guard officer being killed in the line of duty in over 80 years. Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne III was killed during a drug-smuggling investigation, when Meija-Leyva and Beltran-Higuera rammed an inflatable Coast Guard vessel holding Horne and three other officers with their fishing boat.
It is believed that the two men were supplying gasoline to other smugglers along the coast when the Coast Guard discovered them. They were later captured when they attempted to return to Mexico.
Meija-Leyva was convicted of seven counts in total. According to the U.S. attorney’s office, in addition to second-degree murder, he is guilty of assaulting federal officers with a deadly and dangerous weapon.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor said calling illegal aliens “criminals” is “insulting”.
Sotomayor, the nation’s first Hispanic justice, was asked at a talk at Yale Law School Monday about her use of the term “undocumented immigrants” rather than the traditional illegal alien. Sotomayor characterized the issue as a regulatory problem and said labeling immigrants criminals seemed insulting to her.

The Illegal Alien, The Family and The Verdict
A little injection of Reality Here …. Please
This illegal alien (19 years old) knew what had happened - proof is that the boyfriend (18 years old) did receive time for hiding evidence - Again - SHE KNEW- both Obama Dreamers!
Now we read she will serve no time - sentenced to probation and community service and her attorney is worried that the ILLEGAL ALIEN is in grave danger of being deported - Are you Kidding ME?
Apparently we are witnessing just a mere inconvenience in her life even though two little girls are forever gone. The inconvenience of someone who SHOULD NOT have been in the Country to begin with .
AND with all due respect to the family and their lose - Their “FORGIVENESS” makes me angry. They have the right to respond as they choose I suppose, however - just what is their reactions having on the rule of law and on OUR DEMANDS of enforcement and justice…. versus yet another (deadly) pass.
I wonder if the next loss of life …only within a Patriots Family - if they demanded justice and requested 15 years and deportation…would their pleas heard as well - OF COURSE NOT - justice would be water down to what some Judge claimed was the max he or she could do
If this Illegal Alien was an American would she just be walking away - You tell me.. I bet not - Justice is Blind right???? Just not where illegal aliens are concerned - They have FREE REIGN and we are paying the price - Ruthie
