Byron York reports:

When the Gang of Eight filed its massive immigration reform bill, many observers predicted a long, momentous struggle before any legislation — probably changed in fundamental ways by an arduous amendment process — made it through the Senate.

Now, after a few days of on-and-off consideration of the bill, one well-connected Senate source concludes: “This thing’s over.”

As the source sees it, the Senate will vote on the still-unreleased Hoeven-Corker amendment on Monday.  And then, Majority Leader Harry Reid will move for a final vote. “We’ll vote on Corker, a couple of remaining pending amendments, and then cloture on the final bill as amended by Corker, and call it a day,” says the aide. By “call it a day,” the source means the Senate will pass the bill.

If this is accurate, then all those things that Sen. Marco Rubio claimed that he wanted fixed in the bill, will remain unfixed. And he will vote to pass it anyway, setting the stage for President Obama and the Democrats to demagogue the House into passing the bill as well.

Boehner and other establishment republicans are scared the dems will make defeat of this bill a campaign issue in 2014....I welcome that strategy. Let's show how it is another obamacare-esque disaster full of LIES and BACKROOM DEALS/PAYOFFS and tie it right around their (dems) necks. Come on, Old Yellowstain, grow a pair and fight for the American people...stop being a wimp and fight back for a change. Sens Sessions, Lee and Cruz are on the right side in this fight...let's support them with everything we've got!

Remember BENGHAZI!

THE 1000 PAGE SENATE BILL S.477, IS NOT GOING TO BE A WINNER FOR THE 12 MILLION AMERICANS LOOKING FOR A JOB, GIVEN UP OR STUCK IN TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT?

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, the real man of the
people blew the lid off whom really drafted the S.477 immigration bill behind was closed, shutters and doors.

Sen. Sessions opened the largest can of worms possible this morning, reading from a report that the Gang of Eight and their co-conspirators didn’t write the bill, but the trade Unions, high technological companies, Dept of Commerce, trail lawyers, meat packers and poultry plants, agriculture, foreign government advisory, radical advocates as La Raza, construction and development companies, wealthy special interests cheap labor and open border maniacs deciding the enforcement laws. No members of the public, the huge and growing Tea Party or any Conservatives organizations were granted this audience. Just the lobbyist who WROTE THIS BILL, not the Senators!

IT JUST GOES TO PROVE THIS WASN’T WRITTEN FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BUT TO FILL THE BANK ACCOUNTS OF BIG BUSINESS AND ALL THE OTHER INSUFFERABLE ENTITIES WHO AFFECT THE RIGHT MEASURES IN THE RULE OF LAW. WITH DISDAIN I REALIZE NOW WHY ENTERING AMERICA HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN INFRACTION AND NOT A FELONY? IF THIS LAW PASSES AS IS, IT WILL BE OUR DUTY AS AMERICANS TO DISCARD THESE SENATORS AND ALL THOSE INVOLVED INTO THE GUTTER WHERE THEY BELONG?

It was beneficial to the Special Interest that the real Double layer parallel 700 mile fencing was rejected, with concertina razor wire running the top of both fences. No illegal alien should gain citizenship, until they have achieved their atonement until the end of 13 years. Many loopholes graced the senate bill, conveniently on behalf of the Special fortunate entities. There were even carefully disguised laws that would allow illegal aliens benefit from welfare program for illegal aliens. Just like the Simpson-Mazzoli bill of 1986 every person must undergo strict medical exams, learn English, and pay fines, pay back taxes and no waivers, as in the1986 amnesty fraud. No employer should escape heavy fines and prison for violating the law in 1986. Every Guest Worker must be fully vetted and investigated for criminal records back home, or they will be rejected unlike what happened in 1986. BUREAUCRAT HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY JANET NAPOLITANO, ERIC HOLDER, JOHN MORTON SHOULD HAVE NO DISCRETIONARY AUTHORITY AS LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE TO ADMINISTER THE LAW. CHRIS CRAIN OF THE ICE UNION stated they have no confidence in these egotistical women, because she is not an elected official. Whereas Chris Crain border patrol agents take an oath of office, to defend America’s people and uphold the law. She allowed her supervisors at her discretionary orders to release illegal aliens with odious criminal records back on the streets. The person who is in charge should be an elected official, not another civil servant.

As an addition to enforcement an entry and exit protocol which tracks visitors to our country at airports, shipping and ferry docks and other entrance ways must be mandatory. The Supreme Court should visit the Birthright Citizenship law, because it is giving instant citizenship to every child born of illegal aliens, which in reality should take the parents country of origin. Many other foreign countries have rescinded this law of birthright citizenship including Mexico, as United States law was for the emancipation of slaves, so their descendants could become a citizen. Let lawmakers know you are watching their every move, “A vote for De Facto amnesty means NO VOTE FOR THEM IN THE NEXT ELECTIONS!" We can cripple their phones at toll-free -- 1-888-978-3094-- or you may phone the United States Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A terminal operator will connect you directly with the Senate office or just about anybody lawmaker in Congress you request. Set up your message on Twitter or Facebook and Social network as the Left is doing the same with their counterproductive ambiguous information. You can contact millions of people on these Social networks, so we can hammer away at these untrustworthy politicians who many become rich by bowing to lobbyists. Read even more facts about illegal immigration at American Patrol website.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) were irate yesterday about the immigration debates, because the Democrat Senators run off even though very important amendments were pending. Both Sessions and Lees were ignored, because the Gang of Eight and all those who approved this bill behind closed doors, with. This G8 are trying to rush this immigration reform bill S.477, which as it is, will never gain a breath inside the House of Representatives, without amendments being voted on? Unless every amendment is voted on, we are head for the same closed door, middle of the night travesty as the ObamaCare insurance nightmare. Both these great Senators are worried that the G8, 4 Democrats and 4 Republicans are going to push for an up and down vote, the losers being the 12 million jobless American workers.

Are you ready to stand with millions of American to abolish the Internal Revenue Service? The movement that began its spiraling of signatures is creating a battle plan to end this insidious agency of the government http://www.abolishirsnow.com. There is no excuse for the intimidation and abuse of Conservatives, the Tea Party, churches and religious organization. If you were going against the grain of the Obama administration and its subordinates, you could be waiting years for their tax exempt status, only to be faced with several pages of questionnaires with suspicious undertones? There is no exoneration for the Internal Revenue Service and all Americans can make this happen. We have the power of the vote and remove this stigma from our society While citizens and legal permanent residence and even some illegal migrants and immigrants have paid into the system, but its been guaranteed for decades that the tax code has been offering unique privileges in corporate welfare and special interests, including fraudulent payouts of up to $5000 dollars for children of illegal immigrants. Senator Ted Cruz has set up an email address for people to contact if they believe they were besieged by the IRS. That address is: IRSTarget@Cruz.Senate.gov. WAIT TELL THE STATEMENT GETS OUT NATIONWIDE? In a rally in Washington Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas said, “the very best solution is we need to abolish the IRS,”
