Many Republican supporters of loose borders, along with quite a few Democrats, vehemently deny that they support amnesty. They contend that merely asking illegal aliens to pay a fine and back-taxes in return for legal status is not amnesty. Fox News’s Brit Hume passionately denounced those who refer to some of the immigration proposals in Congress as amnesty.

But amnesty means means “an act of forgiveness for past offenses, especially to a class of persons as a whole.” What else would you call granting legal status, let alone the privilege of full blown citizenship, to millions of people who came to the U.S. illegally?

Even beyond amnesty itself, Congress seems to trip over itself providing benefits to people who came to the U.S. illegally. Just look at the inability of the GOP-controlled House to deny aliens welfare and benefits even before they are granted legal status.

POLL: Should the state citizen militias step up to secure the southern border since the Obama administration refuses to do it?

On Tuesday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered an amendment to the FY 2015 Transportation-HUD appropriations bill (H.R. 4745) to cut off Section 8 housing for those here in the country illegally. Gohmert cited a 2009 HUD study which showed that 0.4% of spending for housing programs go towards subsidizing illegal immigrants. His amendment would have cut the Public Housing Capital Fund by $7.1 Million and the Public Housing Operating Fund by $17.6 million, which is commensurate to the 0.4% share of the overall budget steered towards housing subsidies for illegal aliens.

“In a time when some American citizens can't get the housing they need it is unacceptable that those ineligible are stealing from them. This amendment would help encourage HUD to look into this problem and make corrections in their oversight and enforcement of the laws that should govern the way they run the federal housing assistance programs,” said Gohmert.

Amazingly, 70 Republican House members joined with almost every Democrat to defeat Gohmert’s amendment. Among those who voted to keep the subsidies for illegals were Eric Cantor and Renee Ellmers, two Republicans who were challenged on their support for amnesty. Ironically, Cantor was defeated in a stunning upset on that very day by Dave Brat who criticized Cantor for promoting policies that have attracted more illegal immigration.

What about Americans without jobs and are homeless, yet again the taxpayer funds the bill for the idiots in Washington.

Another good reason to quit paying taxes......


Indeed!...send him to Iraq, the 'Hellhole' constructed via Obummer.

How can Congress give (American Citizen tax money against our will) to Illegals?  We have LAWS from 1986 and after that people in our Country ILLEGALLY have to leave, they are NOT entitled to ANYTHING.

Congress, mostly the Democrats, are never concerned with the harm to American families by Millions of Illegals here, only helping them for political reasons.  Phone your Congressmen and tell them that if they are for Amnesty, (or whatever they choose to label it), you will NOT vote for them!

I phoned Congressman Paul Ryan yesterday and many times before.

Phoning the congressman only leads to more depression and anger which leads to poor health. None of them give a damn about our opinions. Not even the so called good ones. With all the unconstitutional B.S. allowed to go on, mostly criminal, and none of them face any punishment. They get paid for it. 

When we break the law we get punished. No one in charge, as usual has the stones to do their job. Unless we replace 75% of the incumbents with fresh young conservatives, or just regular decent people, the trend will continue. Don't forget that the FED is in control anyway. The Constitution is hardly there. If the people would outright in mass numbers just stop funding the beast on all levels and back it up with force if necessary, don't chicken out. Then we could get some results. Basically use the same tactics they use against us. They intimidate with jail and taking all our property at gun point if we don't pay them and shut up.

But everyone is too chicken to really do what is necessary. Hell, I can't get any of my peers to go to a town hall and get in the congressman's face. So I go it alone and end up getting ignored. But they sure don't hesitate to bitch constantly. Twice I have called the same people in my bitching circle and they never can make the town hall.

The illegals have no problem cutting in line, eating fruit while shopping and not paying for it, raping, killing, child molesting, all while laughing in their language at us. So have another great day bitching and watching the real life soap opera the is Washington D.C. Keep doing the same things with the same end result. Oh, and let us not forget the Whore Media who is biased.

Well said folk...! you nailed it...

ellis:  You are so right.  All I hear is spanish this or that.  They all need to be sent back and La Raza is a mexican terror group with only one thought in mind, take back the Southwest away from the gringo.  I guess we may have to use guns to stop the invasion as the government just turns a blind eye, and encourages it!

Many Repubes are going down in Nov.  That is, if there's even an election held.  We are treading dangerously close to martial law with the bogus POTUS poppin' off all kinds of False Flags n' such.  

and to think that for their illegal actions they are being rewarded with more compensation than those that worked and paid taxes thru all their lives.  Shameful, that we put up with this.  They are sending the worst of the worst and the children used as an excuse.   Maybe....few good ones.  Like Castro did doing the Mariel lift.  America, when are you going to learn that a democrat means chaos, injustice and suffering?

Remember voters who elected these officials. The voters sold out their country just like these elected jackasses. We the people who did not vote for socialist government are the ones that are paying the price. Obama and the liberals have agenda to break the once great country USA. In my life time it goes back to Jimmy peanut farmer who wanted socialism. Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. were both for New World Order along with Clintons. Now we have Obama putting the final touches on our demise. United States Of America will soon be known as United States Of Socialist  States under King Obama. 

Oren:  I was turned away from section 8 because they are suppose to be full for another 8 years.  I'm on S.S.D. and could use the help as my rent goes up every year. I and other CITIZENS are being displaced for these rotten illegals with no standing in this country. Why do they get any help from the taxpayers is what I would like to know.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
