Darrell Issa’s Amnesty Bill

District of Corruption

Fresh from their humiliating defeat in the ‘government shutdown’ clown show (OD ignored this grandstanding fiasco), House Republicans led by Rep. Darrell Issa are gearing up to surrender on amnesty for illegal aliens:

“Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is planning to release legislation next week that would provide legal status for six years to undocumented immigrants in the United States, he said in an interview Wednesday.

Issa, an influential Republican who leads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, described the legislation as a “come-from-the-shadows” effort that would allow the government to do a full accounting of those who are in the U.S. illegally. Immigrants in this new status would be able to travel to their native country while on this temporary visa, he said. …”

Note: In hindsight, the highwater mark of enthusiasm on OD for participating in ‘mainstream’ politics was during the 2010 midterm elections.

Back in those days, I briefly succumbed to the delusion that it was possible to reform the system by throwing out the “bad Republicans.” Over the course of 2011, I saw one Republican-controlled state legislature after another reject Arizona-style immigration laws, and finally in 2012 the Republican-controlled Supreme Court weighed in and crushed Arizona’s SB 1070 and turned a dear ear to Alabama HB 56 appeal.

  1. These camel jockeys’ like Issa really don’t have a concept of a nation state like we do in their background. Issa is a descendent of wandering nomadic tribesmen, who like their cousins the Jews, where they pitch their tent is their home.

    Comparatively speaking, Issa may not be as bad as some of his fellow sand-scratchers, but, he sure is acting like a Levantine son of the desert in this immigration/invasion debacle.

  2. Enforcement of existing immigration laws first!

    And limit ourselves to only adding the population of Idaho every single year?
    I don’t think so, jingo.

  3. “And limit ourselves to only adding the population of Idaho every single year?

    Less than that if we eliminate all those Hindoo H-1Bs and that we spade you before you breed.

  4. San Diego Republican Congressmen are generally solid on immigration, Issa – always something just wrong about the guy. He’s White, well, mostly sorta of, hat’s with the name? He has partial Lebanese ancestry, they at always in and out of the await world camp, a lot like. Jaws, both goos are international mechanics, bankers.

  5. The problem with throwing out the “bad republicans” is its hard to get to the ones that run the Republican National Committee, they control the purse strings and decide who gets GOP backing.

    I think we need state parties. Defined as parties who only operate within one state and only take donations from voters in those states. To do any good, they would have to be filled with men with backbones and big enough balls to insist on state sovereignity. Its a long shot, but any revolution must have an organised political component.

    That’s a brilliant and original idea. No national funding of political parties. Anyone else thinking along those lines?

  7. He’s worth 450 million. But what’s his “home country,” really? An immigrant, with no exposure AT ALL IN LIFE to the Oral Traditions of the real united states people for whom the nation was made, “for us and our posterity.” No way, in his background, was he exposed to what millions of people would call “americans.” His mother says she was a mormon? Dad orthodox, worked for rabbis? He seems “a house divided,” and so very hard to call!

    Maybe more Generational Americans in the governance of the country their own families (really) founded might be a good thing, lol
