McCain & Schumer Agree...Immigration Plan Will Result in Unhappy Campers

According to reports today, we should be hearing a lot about immigration reform this week.  Senator Chucky Schumer (D-NY) thinks the Gang of Eight will have the immigration plan finished by the end of the week.    Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Chucky were on the Sunday news shows chatting it up and agreeing that there are going to be a lot of unhappy campers.


"There will be a great deal of unhappiness about this proposal because everybody didn't get what they wanted," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a leader of the eight senators negotiating the legislation, said Sunday. "There are entrenched positions on both sides of this issue.""There's a long road," said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., appearing alongside McCain on CBS' "Face the Nation." ''There are people on both sides who are against this bill, and they will be able to shoot at it."
"Shoot at it"???  Senator Schumer, shame on you!  Remember, Sarah Palin got in trouble for saying such things. Oh, wait, I forgot.  She's a republican...never mind.

Wonder if the "long road" will end with Mr. Obama making another executive order.  He has warned Congress that, if they don't move fast, he's got his own immigration bill waiting in the wings.

I keep hearing that my Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), who is part of the Gang of Eight, does not want this bill rushed through:
But Rubio advisers made clear that he views a lengthy, traditional process that includes hearings, a healthy committee markup and an open floor debate during which senators can offer amendments as key to his ability to build and maintain conservative support for a comprehensive immigration rewrite. Rubio does not have a specific timetable in mind. But anything viewed as “rushed” would violate promises he made to grass-roots conservatives and could cost his support, even if he is OK with the bill in principle.
Let's hope he keeps his promise.

I found this article that contains everything you wanted to know about "immigration", but were smart not to afraid to ask.

I found one paragraph especially interesting:

Nearly two-thirds of the 5.4 million legal immigrants from Mexico who are eligible to become U.S. citizens haven't done so, according to a Pew study released in February. Their rate of naturalization is half that of legal immigrants from all other countries combined. The barriers to naturalization cited by Mexican nonapplicants include the need to learn English, the difficulty of the citizenship exam and the $680 application fee.

Here's an intersting article I found:
High-Skilled Visa Requests Exceed Supply in 1 Week

The article does not mention the nationality of these people. 


  1. I hope enough unhappy campers in Arizona recall McCave!

    1. It will be interesting to see how this is accepted in his state. I totally respect Sen. McCain's service to our country, but he's been in office way too long.

  2. The image says it all. Ditto TCL, but mclame has been damaged goods for a while now. randy 'duke' cunningham was a Vietnam Fighter Pilot Hero type who entered politics in Kalifornia and is now serving a prison term for being a thieving political bastard

    john campaigns on Extremely Tight Border Control, then 5 seconds after being elected starts yapping about the amnesty plans of the hard left.

    mclame needs to be put out to pasture. Frankly, I don't think much would be different with john in the white house other than the Illusion that we had a patriotic president.

  3. If you opened these anonymous emails-there will be a flood more of them---SPAM.
    If you did not open them as email, then on your blogger dash board > comments,check the box left of the comment and up top click spam. Then on the left column click spam--under comments, and then click the box on the left of the comment and again at the top click delete. Blogger will block them from repeat visits.
    If you opened them from the email--then there will be a flood of them.
    I did the email thing and have been flooodded with these pukes spam, but doing the steps I listed, blogger has started stopping a few of them. But a lot are New SPam so they are hip to not repeat visits as the same "my site: bla bla bla".
    Did you hear about the 14 students stabbed at the Lone Star College in Tx today? The same College as January Shoot out.
    The guy was a loner (deaf-with a coloquar implant), says he has been dreaming about going on a stabbing rampage sense grade school--and had been planning this for a while (lately).

    1. Thanks for the info and I have been doing that. I don't open them from emails. Today is the most I've seen in one day. At least these weren't vulgar. I've received some that were just awful. Tomorrow I'll go back and mark these as spam (can't do it from my tablet).

      I heard a little about the stabbing. I guess Mr. Obama will want to outlaw knives now.

  4. I opened some emails. You did not.
    So I guess that opening emails did not start the uninvited... come to think about it, they are comments that are sent to my inbox. So they are not emails but blogger's alerting that I have comments.
    I have a widget that shows from where visitors hale. But I have these comments--that are sent to my inbox, that do not show up as a visitor on the widget. How do they do that?

    1. You got me. All I know is that I have more spam now than ever. Very annoying.
