Thought experiment: we give BO whatever immigration reform he wants. What happens 10 years from now when an Equadorian woman with 10 year old child comes over the Mexican border? What happens when a Polish worker overstays his visa? When intercepted do the woman and child get deported? Does the worker get tracked down and deported? Do you want to buy the lovely bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan?

All the Times et al are really advocating is open borders.

And not only that, once they put themselves in the hands of the Border Patrol, they'll get a bus ticket for the rest of the ride in the USA. "Senora, you say you have friends in New Hampshire? Si. Well little lady here's a bus ticket to New Hampshire. Y'all have a nice day now."

There's a freeway that runs along the Mexican border in San Diego County--goes from I-5 at the Tijuana entry gate east to the Otay Mesa entry gate. I occasionally drive along it and see a yellow sign with a graphic image of a woman running leading two children by the hand. I always figured that freeway to be the finish line of the "cross border dash". Little did I know at the time that it was also going to become a taxi stand for Border Patrol officers to pick people up and give them a ride to the Greyhound Station in downtown San Diego.

Interesting timing,no?

URGENT per Fox's @ChadPergram - "Fox has also learned that the emails of six other prominent IRS officials have also gone missing."

Comanche, that same sign appears on I-5 just south of Camp Pendleton, about 65 miles north of the border.

the emails of six other prominent IRS officials have also gone missing

Those deleted to comply with the 500MB mailbox limit? Of course they're missing. How could they not be?

"Thought experiment: we give BO whatever immigration reform he wants.."

Counter-thought experiment...you're a marketing executive charged with selling Pepsi. Pepsi is a great product, but it's narrowing demographic is having a severely negative impact on it's gross sales.Hispanics don't drink Pepsi but they're open to the possibility and you decide that you don't want Hispanics drinking your pure white American drink,you only want clean white "Traditional Americans drinking it.Now...go to Pepsi and tell them your amazing marketing campaign and years later when you're wondering to yourself why your 17 year old daughter is dancing on a pole instead of graduating from Harvard comfort yourself with the notion that you never gave up on your principles.


This is why you loose elections. It doesn't take a marketing or political genius to figure out that when you're selling a product, principles are about as useless as a dickless man at a swingers party. Principles are for the sick and the indulgent and they are two words that sum up your childish tea party and your radical right.


You put forward an immigration bill with a path to Citizenship you lock down the Hispanic Christian vote(who despise abortion and are naturally conservative) for the next 40 years because the children of immigrants will become doctors and lawyers...... and even the toothless,inbred rednecks will eventually come back.


Stop stop stop being principled politicans and start being disgusting sell your mother for a vote Democractic polls who win and control the political narrative.

Pele was a Pepsi spokesman. DuDa continues to be an idiot.

"Pele was a Pepsi spokesman. DuDa continues to be an idiot"

Yeah,I think you're right. I'm not college educated,my grammar's a nightmare and can't structure a sentence to same me life.

Time and time again I see Democrats raiding Conservative ideoligy,re-calibrating it for the times and using a lot of really excellent ideas and I think..shit..why don't republicans just fine tune and use their own doctrine.

It'll happen,but it'll take a few years.

"Interesting timing,no?"

I think you can count on a daily attempt by this administration to change the subject.

Someone should keep a list.

I remember putting the ants in there to watch them trying to escape. Does that make me David Attenborough or Charles Manson?

The NSA tracked him down as the only guy on the African continent who tried to order Hillary's book on Amazon.

I have this image of the video -- a Tom Lehrer style song whipping through the list with photos flipping by to illustrate each one.

WTF is DuDa smoking? It needs to be eliminated from the planet.

Yes,yes you're right, he was the only guy on the African continent who tried to order Hillary's book. Yes that's right. Yes.That's right. Yes.

Good luck in 2016.

Got any predictions for 2014, dd?

Come to think of it, maybe DuDa's not smoking anything, but injecting pure hatred right into his veins.

Black Hat

Dublindave: not my point. There will be no additional de facto enforcement under any reform plan proposed by BO and endorsed by the Times. I'm not sure that I want to live in a place where there is the level of enforcement needed to eliminate illegal immigration. That's why this is a farce. If you want open borders, advocate for them.

AliceH

I'm not going to bother to read the NYT on this. Can someone tell me if they address the big-gaping hole in the 'escaping violence at home' "explanation:, i.e. once they reach Mexico they had escaped ... so why keep going until they reach USA? Yeah - I'm not going to hold my breath.

pagar

" so why keep going until they reach USA?"

Trying to get to Chicago. Oh wait, that's worse than Central America.

Miss Marple

Has anyone explained why Mexico isn't stopping them? I mean, Mexico is known for a strict immigration policy (more sever than ours by a long shot).

So why are they allowing all of these immigrants to go throughtheir country? Are they stopping any of them? Are they escorting them? Are they stopping them and when they say they are going to the US, are they being released with 2 weeks to get out of Mexico?

Is Mexico in cahoots with the governments of Guatemala and others? Are the rumored ads on Central American radio stations true? Who is paying for them?

If I were a reporter, I would ask these questions.

Patriot4Freedom

Miss M - If you were a reporter, the MFM *wouldn't let you* ask those questions . . .

Stephanie

MM, a few days ago I posited in a thread here that THAT is the reason the marine is still in prison in Mexico. Blackmail for the agreement to allow free passage to the US.

I still think I'm right. And I think a smart reporter (oxymoron, I know, right) could unravel that if they wanted.

narciso

well it is out of character, miss marple, for Mexico not to do this, with Guatemala,the dirty little secret is the military is somewhat tied into the smuggling networks, to a degree,

Speaking truth to power;
