The Democrat controlled Senate will begin consideration of the Schumer – Rubio amnesty sometime today and could vote on it as early as next week. It cannot pass without some GOP votes.

Barack Obama is pushing the bill and assuring Republicans that another amnesty will help their party. Because, as we all know, helping the GOP is tops on Obama’s agenda!

Some Republicans, maybe including both Georgia Senators, will vote for the bill.

We think a picture is indeed worth a thousand words.

Here is info for the people who keep calling us asking what to do: contact Senator Johnny Isakson at his Atlanta office. Please know the illegal alien lobby has been calling for six months.

@Robert: It has been demonstrated for many years that the anti immigration legal efforts have not been successful. That's why we have millions and millions of undocumented immigrants here. Are you following this? A point which you and others have clearly missed over and over. What you and others continue to say is, "enforce the laws". You and others have NOT made any unique suggestions, if you are going to complain then make some suggestions involving a solution. Since you and others don't make viable suggestions but do whine about the problem that qualifies all of you as "cry babies".

You are finished.

Lib in Cobb. Nobody takes anything you say seriously. With good reason. Law enforcement stops crime. So you dictate that law enforcement cannot be the answer because you don't want it to be true. You are a liberal and therfore a mindless idiot.

It does help to picture you endlessly checking blogs to see if anyone is paying attention to you.

In the past few weeks I have challenged a number of "wingers" here to give us a unique solution to the immigration problem/situation. So far only "Against Amnesty" has approached an answer, but not unique. I will again challenge the "wingers", you know who you are, to develop a unique plan to address this issue. Sorry, "enforcing the laws" is not unique".

Sure! WQe need more workers! Is Isakson insane?

So much for the thesis of declining labor slack and rising labor leverage. Moments ago the BLS reported its Q1 labor costs which poured cold water over all recent hypotheses that the US worker's plight is improving. It isn't: productivity increased by 0.5% in Q1 in ling with expectations of 0.6% (on what is not exactly clear - everyone on their iPhones?) but it was labor costs which plunged -4.3% on expectations of a 0.5% increase driven by a 3.8% collapse in hourly compensation that was the stunner. This was the biggest labor cost drop in four years and the biggest collapse in hourly compensation in well, ever.

For the purpose of determining amnesty , S.744 Rubio's bill allows DHS to waive the following conduct, which does not require a conviction in order to make an alien inadmissible:

•Committing crimes or of moral turpitude (INA 212(a)(2)(A)(i)(I));

•Violating federal or state drug laws (INA 212(a)(2)(A)(i)(II));

•Trafficking in passports (INA 212(a)(2)(A)(i)(III))(added to the INA by §3709);

•Providing fraudulent immigration services (INA 212(a)(2)(A)(i)(III))(added to the INA by §3709);

•Trafficking immigration documents, including document fraud (INA 212(a)(2)(A)(i)(III))(added to the INA by §3709);

•Prostitution (INA 212(a)(2)(D)(i));

•Gang membership (INA 212(a)(2)(F))(added to the INA by §3701);

•Misrepresenting a material fact to procure visas or other immigration benefits (if done for any purpose other than submitting an amnesty application) (INA 212(a)(6)(C)(i));

•Violating student visas (INA 212(a)(6)(G));

•Falsely claiming citizenship (INA 212(a)(6)(C)(ii)); and

•Illegally re-entering the U.S. after deportation (a felony)(INA 212(a)(9)(C).

Gang of Eight Breaks Promise on Back Taxes!

A close analysis of the Gang of Eight's amnesty bill (S.744) shows that illegal aliens will in fact not be required to pay back taxes in order to receive legal status, which the bill calls "registered provisional immigrant" (RPI) status.

This conclusion turns on one word used in the text of the bill: "assessed." Under S.744, an alien may not even file an application for RPI status "unless the applicant has satisfied any applicable Federal tax liability." (Sec. 2101, p.68-69) "Applicable federal tax liability" is defined as "all Federal income taxes assessed." (Id.)

While this sounds good at first blush, one must look closer at the exact words used. First, "taxes assessed" does not mean "taxes owed." A tax is "assessed" when the IRS officially records that a person owes a tax. (See, e.g., Warren, Gorham & Lamont Treatise on Tax Controversies, § 3.01; Warren, Gorham & Lamont Treatise on Tax Procedures, § 10.01) A tax assessment can happen in two ways. One, an individual files a tax return, tells the IRS what he owes, and, after correcting any mathematical errors, the IRS records it. (See 26 U.S.C. §6201) Two, the IRS audits an individual — whether or not he has filed a return — and, after giving the taxpayer an opportunity to contest, records how much the person owes. (See 26 U.S.C. §6212)

This leads to two possible scenarios in which the "back taxes" of an illegal alien will have been "assessed." In the first scenario, the illegal alien has filed a tax return and the IRS has "assessed" any unpaid portion of the reported tax. This will be a rare scenario since an illegal alien is unlikely to file a return reporting taxes that he is unable or unwilling to pay, for fear of causing trouble with the federal government. In the second scenario, the illegal alien is working off the books, has not filed a return, and has been audited by the IRS. This will also be a very rare scenario since the IRS has no knowledge of the alien's existence. In short, despite the promises of the authors, the Gang of Eight has drafted a tax provision that will almost never require illegal aliens to pay "back taxes" as a condition of receiving amnesty.

Nice try Rich. You mindless fraud. Go back to the Nation of Islam to feel important.

The entire report you try to use, which was financed by the Chamber of Commerce, shows the opposite of waht you want to be true. Illegal aliens are here because they will work cheap. The balance is made up by TAXPAYERS.

Note that Mexico protects its workers by keeping out illegal labor Rich.

"For those undocumented immigrants who are consigned to low-wage jobs ( nearly 100% of them fit that decription), they cannot contribute a

high dollar amount in taxes. However, like other low-income workers, low-wage undocumented

immigrants presumably contribute a considerable amount in taxes as A SHARE OF INCOME through the

sales and property tax system."

If mass illegal immigration is such a financial bonanza for our country, maybe President Obama's open borders/no deportation immigration policy will save America from collapse and bankruptcy.

I know he/they don't want you to be confused by the facts but:

If all unauthorized immigrants were removed from Georgia, the state would lose $21.3 billion in economic activity, $9.5 billion in gross state product, and approximately 132,460 jobs, even accounting for adequate market adjustment time, according to a report by the Perryman Group.

Unauthorized immigrants contribute to the state’s economy.

Unauthorized immigrants in Georgia paid $456.3 million in state and local taxes in 2010, according to data from the Institute for Taxation and Economic Policy, which includes:

$85.7 million in state income taxes.

$36.4 million in property taxes.

$334.2 million in sales taxes.

The average unauthorized family in Georgia contributes between $2,340 and $2,470 in state and local sales, income, and property taxes, according to a 2006 study by the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute. An unauthorized family that does not pay income taxes would have a sales and property tax contribution of $1,800 to $1,860.

And this is just one state--imagine when you add all 50--the incredible positive economic impact of the immigrants!!!

All I keep hearing is comprehensive immigration reform, comprehensive immigration reform, comprehensive immigration reform. How about some comprehensive ENFORCEMENT reform to get the illegal aliens out of this country? How's this for an idea? Make entering this country illegally a felony. Make the fine $2500 plus one year in Federal prison. Make this the same on overstayed VISAs. If drugs are involved, triple the fine. Then, apply this to all the illegal aliens in this country now. Leave or if you get caught, the fine will apply to them. Maybe, just maybe, this will take the place of a fence that is costly and doesn’t seem to work all that well. It may even cut down on the cost of deporting these illegal aliens. The other thing is this birthright citizenship. We MUST end it. E-Verify in EVERY business and check EVERY employee. End FREE medical care for illegal aliens. End schooling illegal alien children. End food stamps for the illegal aliens. They have NO RIGHT to be here. Yes, let’s start with this..

@DA: Instead of being a small fish in a small pond, why don't you run for one of the US congressional seats, then you too could be a very mediocre congressman from GA.

Just a few facts that you conveniently omit or hide (and this is just about GA; imagine when all 50 are added):

If all unauthorized immigrants were removed from Georgia, the state would lose $21.3 billion in economic activity, $9.5 billion in gross state product, and approximately 132,460 jobs, even accounting for adequate market adjustment time, according to a report by the Perryman Group.

An unauthorized family that does not pay income taxes would have a sales and property tax contribution of $1,800 to $1,860.

So much for the economic drain argument.

So, what is it really, cultural drain (translated as : not white enough?)as FAIR's founders, Bill O'

Reilly, and others who are honest admit? Is that why you label Latinos as terrorists who are here to kill our children? Please come out of your closet(s) and be honest regarding your motivations.

I would suggest that the GOP accept the help from the man who put a "whuppin" on them twice.
