Are the President and Chuck Schumer saying they Support a Piece Meal Approach to Immigration Reform? THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!
Articles I am reading are saying that the President AND Chuck Schumer from the Gang of 8 are saying they are supporting the GOP House of Reps in passing a Piece Meal Approach to Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
According to GOPUSA Articles: Sen. Chuck Schumer said he'd support the Republican-led House's piecemeal approach to U.S. immigration reform, provided it offered a path to citizenship. "We would much prefer a big comprehensive bill, but any way that the House can get there is OK by us," the New York Democrat told CNN. "I actually am optimistic that we will get this done." Schumer, a leader of the bipartisan "Gang of Eight" senators whose comprehensive immigration-reform legislation passed the Senate in June, said he'd "had a lot of discussions with various members of both parties in the House. Things are moving in the right direction. "The initial reaction was the House isn't going to take up any bill," Schumer added. "That would have been very bad -- no bill. Now, they're doing it in pieces. A couple of their pieces are very similar to our bill."
If Schumer bothered to read the PRESS of the House GOP's Piece Meal Version of Immigration Reform, he'd know that Piece Meal means passing ONE Step at a Time.
Step One: Enforcing Current Law = Mass Deportation, ICE Raids and Racial Profiling Enforcement Sweeps
Step Two: 2,000 Mile Electronic Fence,
Step Three: Changing the 14th BirthRight Citizenship Laws
Step Four: English Only
Around Step 18 or 20, they begin to think about the possibility of Legalization, but that, from their perspective, is years and years down the road, IF EVER.
IF the President and Schumer are Truly Considering this, THEY NEED TO GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD. THIS IS NOT, NOT, NOT ACCEPTABLE!!
