Quote:How is it racist to want people who entered the country illegally, deported back to their own countries? I'd love to hear your tortured logic on that.
Brandon. Please explain to me why you think racists wouldn't want people deported?
The tortured logic is yours.
Racists, might well want people deported. Racists might well want to go to the movies on Saturday or take a nap for 30 minutes, but none of these things makes someone a racist. I didn't ask if a racist could want this. I asked how wanting this makes one a racist. So, once again, I ask you how wanting people in the country illegally to be deported makes someone a racist.

That you know that we already dont have anywhere near enough jobs, if the reason you dont want these brown people to come is not because their brown but because they are mostly without education or skills, because we dont need any more supply to weaken the job market from the employees side of the equation, if you dont want them here because they are illiterate and dont have much interest in being literate, if you dont want them here because you want a salad bowl society but all to often these poor mexicans and asians insist upon cocooning themselves in ghettos of there own kind thus depriving you of your salad bowl......does not matter.
Amen Hawkeye! You make my point better than I ever could.
You have a point there. President Romney's opposition to immigration reform, particularly his comment about "self-deportation", is one of the reasons he won the election. His opponent, Obama, promised he would legalize immigrants. That's why he was a one term president.
What is it about you extremists that you always falsely accuse anyone who disagrees with your extremism of racism?
I think the executive order was ill advised because it stomped all over the moderates who were about to try to pass reform legislation, but I don't have a good sense either way on the question of whether it is or isn't Constitutional.
"All the Dreamers that are out there and all those who qualified for my executive action moving forward, I want you to know I am confident in my ability to implement this program over the next two years," Obama said after meeting with the youths. "And I am confident that the next president and the next Congress and the American people will ultimately recognize why this is the right thing to do."

WASHINGTON -- The House will finally vote on a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security without immigration measures, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told his conference at a meeting on Tuesday.
The vote will come after the House narrowly averted a shutdown last Friday when the House GOP rejected a "clean" DHS funding bill passed in the Senate, and then 52 conservative Republican members joined Democrats to block even a three-week continuing resolution. The House passed a one-week funding bill in hopes that Senate Democrats would allow a conference between the two chambers to go forward, but that was rejected on Monday.
Senate Democrats have already shown that they will not vote for a funding bill that passed the House in January. That bill would tie funding to ending President Barack Obama's immigration actions, which could allow as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants to temporarily stay in the country and work.
Now, the House is conceding defeat on getting immigration measures into the DHS bill. The vote could come as soon as Tuesday.
