    • On February 02, 2013, by Oldentimes - Ted Kennedy on the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Bill (Reagan amnesty), “This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.”

    • On January 31, 2013, by Oldentimes - The business of America should be one where there is opportunity but we all play by the rules not change the rules to accommodate those who broke them. What happens to all the illegal immigrants who don’t want to learn English, get fingerprinted, fined and pay taxes, ultimately not coming forward and applying in the given timeframe, if there a time frame? Many don’t want to be a taxpayer; they just don’t want to be deported. Will politicians deal much more harshly with new illegals or the legal illegals that chose not to be processed? Will the feds strictly enforce our immigration laws or let them slide like they always do? What are the feds going to do in the interim when thousands more will try to get here under the wire?

    • On January 31, 2013, by Oldentimes - These people already cost us billions and will cost taxpayer a bloody fortune more in health care and social services. It will happen eventually, when you provide the “pass”, you will have emboldened their base and if we don’t provide services to them, they will demonize us, demand it and get it…. Will they fix the 4.2 Billion in Refundable Credits illegals currently collect? Will the IRS treat citizens with the same leniencies who owe back taxes? Will the legal illegal be deported or will they be made to pay for any crime they may commit as any citizen would? Will their citizen children earn them special preference or social benefits over those in waiting line for citizenship?
