    Default Businesses give Obama's immigration plan a chilly reception

    Oh I am not surprised by this in the least! What more does everyone want from the guy? There has been zero cooperation on this issue for years!
    Business leaders who have long clamored for immigration reform say they are unsatisfied with President Obama’s move this week to give legal status and work permits to millions immigrants in the United States illegally.

    Top business groups in Washington say Obama may have “undermined” any faint hope of meaningful measures to overhaul the nation’s immigration system by going around Congress to delay deportations.

    “We wish the president had tried a little harder to work with the incoming Congress to find a legislative solution to the immigration problem,” says Jack Mozloom, spokesman for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

    But business groups were less than less than enthused by the plan, arguing that it does not do enough to improve the position of U.S. businesses on the global stage."Successfully competing (using cheap labor) for the world’s best talent and hardest workers will be indispensable to our efforts to grow (our bank accounts) the economy and expand jobs and incomes for all (illegals) Americans,” said Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    This whole thing is a ef'ing joke!!!

    I think the real joke here is that politicians have had every opportunity to do something about this and never have. For years they allowed illegals to flood into this country for their cheap labor.

    Flood of illegal immigrants to pour into NYC schools | New York Post

    The city’s per-pupil spending in the 2012-2013 academic year averaged $20,749, which would bring the total for the migrant kids to $48.7 million.

    But the costs could soar, because the youths — many of them victims of poverty and abuse — will need state-mandated English-language instruction, free or reduced-price lunch, and a range of other services, including psychological counseling, medical and dental.

    What ... ???

    He's back with more insight on how well the republicans will do now that they have control.
    Let's see if they do anything, or just continue to spin their wheels and waste taxpayer money ... like the lawsuit against the President, or another Benghazi panel ... even though the first 7 all said the same thing.

    Perhaps you will continue to ignore the damage done to America. Obama is fundamentally transforming America.
    The new voting block has arrived and you no longer matter.

    BIDEN PROMISES REFUGEE STATUS TO CENTRAL AMERICANS UNDER 21

    Previous U.S. immigration policy included a program that allowed up to 4,000 people a year from Cuba and Columbia to apply for refugee status. The new policy, as described by Biden, would expand that program to people under age 21 from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras who already have a parent in the U.S. legally, to allow them to come and join their parents.
    "It provides those seeking asylum a 'right way' to come to our country, as opposed to crossing the border illegally," said Biden about the new policy. "The program will provide a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children make -- and some children don’t ever arrive, don’t ever make."

    I am not saying the Republicans are any better but the ones in charge are bringing this country to third world status.. I know I will get a lot backlash on this but IMO Obama is among the worst Presidents we have had.. We have to get away from the two party system and come up with system that allows the people to grade their elected officials.. No more four year and six year stints.. Elect them every year.. If they want to keep their jobs then maybe they will get something accomplished..

    Your right ... something must change to bring the average American citizen back into the picture, instead of the corporations and wealthy running this country.
    But ... the worst President ?
    I'll question that.
    Because he has been blocked constantly by the republicans his chances to move important issues ahead have been blocked at every level.
    Let's look at numbers ... and we all know that if a republican was in office they would throw out the numbers too.



    Seems like everything is much better then when the republican G.W. Bush walked out of Washington.

    What good are numbers if the average american has to work more than one job to make ends meet..

    Seems like everything is much better then when the republican G.W. Bush walked out of Washington.
    I would have to disagree with you on that.. They might not be any worse but they surely aren't any better unless of course you are talking about wall st..
