Obama, top Dems now appear to be pushing for comprehensive immigration reform

President Obama and his top Democrats on Capitol Hill appear to have reset their sights on the Republican-controlled House passing comprehensive immigration reform, instead of a step-by-step process, as lawmakers leave Washington for the Christmas holiday break.

The president on Friday appeared to urge the House to back the comprehensive, bipartisan immigration bill the Senate passed this summer -- a departure from recent comments that suggested Obama was OK with the lower chamber’s apparent piecemeal plan.

“The Senate bill has the main components of comprehensive immigration reform that would boost our economy, give us an opportunity to attract more investment and high-skilled workers who are doing great things in places like Silicon Valley and around the country,” Obama said in the year-end press conference. “So let’s go ahead and get that done.”

All the Muslim Maggot needs to do is call Bonner and say I have your NSA file and it does not look all that good, relative to the immigration bill,,,,,set down and shut up!

THE ONLY REFORM WE NEED IS TO GET THE PEOPLE OUT THAT ARE NOT ENFORCING THE CURRENT IMMIGRATION LAWS.....!!

Our immigration system is not broken the laws are just not being enforced. Why pass new laws when we all know that they will not be enforced.  Make it impossible for an illegal to work in this country and the illegals will selfdeport. Do not reward lawbreakers.

They do not want any new laws ...they want no laws ...open borders , after all we will be a one world nation ! 

The Senate's comprehensive immigration overhaul is just another piece of socialist rhetoric by which the democrats put more low wage earners on the dole, set up more fly-by-night "Solyndras" and hand over piece-meal parts of the economy to the communist groups such as La Raza and promote Marxists like Raul Grijalva as the Czar to "oversee" the thievery. The ONLY solution to the chaos that is the immigration mess, is to round up and deport EVERY illegal alien, Return the immigration system to the pre-Obama model and be exceedingly strict in the selection of acceptable immigrants, This great Republic has no need for any immigrants. We are raising and educating young people in need of employment right this minute. We no longer need the "Huddled masses longing to be free." when we decide to reopen our doors, we can do so without putting up with the ungrateful protestors and drug runners that have breached our system with the aid and knowledge of our own government. We are not and should not be the safe harbor for those who will not resist the dictators in their own homelands nor do we need ANY muslims whose creed demands that WE accept their horrendous Shariah laws and make nonsensical condescensions to their religious demands.

Dr. Thomas E. Davis, Colonel, USA  (ret)   

Return our immigration system to the pre-1964 laws, which worked pretty well.

Dr.Davis,

Thank you for the most lucid.factual reason to stop amnesty. Well done.

Dr. Davis, WELL SAID, AND ACCURATE!   Actually, we need to put a complete PROHIBITION TO ANY IMMIGRATION OF MUSLIMS.  And just STRICTLY ENFORCE THE CURRENT IMMIGRATION LAWS. 

I am GREATLY offended when ILLEGALS march in the street DEMANDING rights???? Are you kidding me?

Back in the 40s, immigrants coming into Ellis Island HAD TO HAVE A SPONSOR FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEM FOR TWO YEARS, THEY HAD TO LEARN THE CONSTITUTION, BILL OF RIGHTS, THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, U.S. HISTORY, AND.... ENGLISH!!!!! 

ENFORCE IT!!!!

Hey obummer, STFU!

This is a joke. Silicon Valley needs Hardware and Software engineers, not tomato pickers.

The Republican Party needs to just ignore this attempt by BO & the Dems., it is NOT a winning issue, Most Americans & LEGAL Immigrants do not want another Amnesty, they want our borders secured FIRST with mandatory E-verify.  If the GOP gets involved in this unwinnable political maneuver by them, they will just get dragged down by the Media and Dems.  They need to reverse the discussion to "Why haven't our borders been fully secured and mandatory E-verify passed if Democrats are so interested in Amnesty again?"  They have had years to do it and meanwhile are NOT deporting Illegals, indeed, even sneaking Illegals into the Country by the Dept. of Homeland "Security"!

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
