‘Native American Lawmaker To Anti-Immigrant Kansas Official: ‘When You Mention Illegal Immigrant, I Think Of All Of You’

native american

‘A Native American state representative in Kansas rebuked Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a leader in the anti-immigrant movement, at a hearing yesterday’.

“I think it’s funny Mr. Kobach, because when you mention illegal immigrant, I think of all of you,” said State Rep. Ponka-We Victors (D), a member of the Tohono O’odham Nation of Arizona, during a hearing on Wednesday about a state statute that allows children of undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates at public universities’.

‘Wednesday’s hearing on House Bill 2192 would have repealed a nearly 10-year-old statute that allows students who graduate from Kansas high schools and have lived in Kansas for at least three years to pay in-state tuition at state universities and community colleges, regardless of residency status’.

‘Kobach, a lightning-rod for controversy on immigration issues, told the committee federal law conflicts with that statute’.

“U.S. citizens should always come first when it comes to handing out government subsidies,” Kobach said’.

‘Michele Bachmann: Obamacare Will ‘Literally’ Kill People’

Leadership in political parties use to ‘censor’ Representative or Senators when they ‘crossed a line’.

But since the campaign of Romney and Ryan, lying is the staple of Republican politics.

The out right lies are the easiest way to ‘excite’ the smiple minds of the teabaggers.

What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘Senator Wants Permanent Underclass, Creates Punitive Tax Code For Immigrants Who Achieve Legal Status’

jeff sessions1

Setting up a sub class of citizens that contribute a permanent revenue stream but can’t claim benefits from programs that revenue stream pays for.

To Republicans – this is ‘freedom’ and ‘liberty’.

Having learned nothing from the election but claiming that they need to ‘reach out to Latinos…….

‘Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has introduced measures that could permanently bar undocumented immigrants from receiving federal tax credits and health care benefits under the Affordable Care Act — even if they achieve legal status through comprehensive immigration reform’.

‘The amendments seeks to prevent the undocumented population from qualifying for all refundable tax credits — including the homebuyer credit, the health coverage credit, and the child tax credit’.

‘Immigrants would be unable to take advantage of the tax benefits after they earn legal status and seek to integrate themselves into American society’.

‘They’ll pay the same taxes as others, but would be denied the assistance that their taxes are intended to cover’.

‘Below is the text of the two amendments’:

‘SEC. 3__. DEFICIT-REDUCTION RESERVE FUND TO ACHIEVE SAVINGS BY PROHIBITING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS OR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS GRANTED LEGAL STATUS FROM QUALIFYING FOR A REFUNDABLE TAX CREDIT’.
‘the prohibition of illegal immigrants or aliens who were unlawfully present in the United States prior to receiving a grant of legal immigration status from qualifying for refundable tax credits’.

‘SEC. 3__. DEFICIT-REDUCTION RESERVE FUND TO ACHIEVE SAVINGS BY PROHIBITING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS OR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS GRANTED LEGAL STATUS FROM QUALIFYING FOR FEDERALLY SUBSIDIZED HEALTH CARE’.
‘prohibiting illegal immigrants or aliens who were unlawfully present in the United States prior to receiving a grant of legal immigration status from qualifying for Federally subsidized health care’.

Why it’s called the ‘Stupid Party’ – ‘GOP Congressman: ‘The Best Thing About The Earth Is If You Poke Holes In It Oil And Gas Come Out’

stockman

When he’s not inviting nut case Ted Nuggent to the State of the Union speech, Representative Stockman tweets.

Maybe he shouldn’t do either…….

‘Most people probably believe the best thing about the Earth is that it has a stable biosphere and climate that sustains life — unique among all the planets we have observed’.

‘Stockman’s number one source of corporate campaign donations in the 2012 election was the oil and gas industry’.
