Chamber of Commerce to Push For Passage of Immigration Reform Law in 2014

Just legalize it


The president of the US Chamber of Commerce says the nation's biggest business lobby intends to "pull out all the stops" to pass an overhaul of immigration laws. That would place the chamber on the side of President Barack Obama on one of the White House's top legislative priorities of the year.

"We're determined to make 2014 the year that immigration reform is finally enacted," Chamber President Tom Donohue said Wednesday, during his annual "State of American Business" address.

  1. I know people on conservative sites get it but let’s ask the almighty intellectual Progressive what the definition of legal is versus illegal. Because it one supports something that is illegal on the grounds that it is not really a legal issue then one suffers from anti reason. That’s why I never comment back to their “you’re a racist” remarks. You cannot reason with the irrational.

    Well here is my answer to all of them. What if the illegal has been here ten years? Deportation. What if they got married here? Deportation. What if there are children now? Deportation–and he can take the children with him or her to Mexico or direct them to social services. That dilemma is the illegal’s own doing, not ours.
    If a burglar was caught ten years after the fact none of these “what ifs” would ever come up. But when it is person of color, as the huge, almost 100% of illegals coming from the southern border are Mexican, suddenly the law is not the law.

    We are seriously in debt. The idea one dollar is given to
    an illegal is the anti reason I speak of and write about in fiction and nonfiction. And a country that does not operate in reason will soon find they will not be a country at all but just another footnote in history of fallen empires.
    And that’s what the Progressive really wants.
