“America claims to be a moral nation except when it comes to being held accountable for her own actions, particularly when it comes to American Black citizens. This is why America will always be a immoral, hypocritical, racist nation. It's baffling how many claim this nation to be a Christian, God fearing nation and people yet the majority refuse and reject for America to. pay the debt she owes to her own citizens.”

“As I previously stated, President Obama cannot trust this Congress. They have proved countless times their mission is to destroy his Presidency. Unfortunately those members of Congress who understand their job is to work for the American people have to be left out in the cold in this sensitive matter. they only have their fellow Congressional members to blame. These days Congress is more loyal to the Sunday morning chat shows than the country. I support the President with his decision”

“Only americans could think that it is acceptable to right a wrong by committing another wrong.

It is Not committing another wrong when this government INTENTIONALLY created laws, practice and policy to disenfranchise one group of citizens and advance another on their backs. That is what America did, it is clear that you don't believe American Black people are on the same playing field that you're on and America has no obligation to pay for the Crimes she Intentionally committed

The largest benefactors of the Affirmative Action program are White women, it is clear you don't what you're posting about and using RACE as the sole reason why you object to America paying what she owes.

“Ask your parents about the Civil Rights Bill, like you now they were probably part of the 66% of White Americans who was against the Bill yet it is law of the land. Things like this is done because it's what's best for the Country. Paying Americas debt to her Black citizens is the Right Thing to Do.”

“Only americans could think that it is acceptable to right a wrong by committing another wrong.

That is why we are universally hated as a people.

Ok by your own logic, I should get reparations as well. I was personally rejected for employment directly do to affirmative action. So as a direct result of people that I am in no way associated with actions against Black people. Affirmative action was created. I personally and in a very real and tangible sense was directly affected by this policy. I have only ONE life on this earth and it was directly effected by it multiple times that are verifiable.

And Now you want me to pay?

You know as well as I do that it is never going to happen.

Again
Only americans could think that it is acceptable to right a wrong by committing another wrong.”

“When you chose to immigrate into any nation you accept the good and bad. What it has to offer and it's debt. If folks who immigrate chose not to be responsible for the debts of the Government of United States of America, then they can always return to their countries of origin. That's how it works.”

“This is no surprise, the majority of "Americans" (meaning Whites) believed Civil Rights for Blacks were unnecessary, the same folks who laud and cherry pick Dr King speeches today prayed for and celebrated his assassination. This is why some issues are left to the American people but to the government, as the payment of reparations must be. One can also say that based on this poll many White Americans and wanna-be's still have a deep seeded hatred for Black Americans.”

“You think 25 million americans are going to work for sub-mininum wage jobs?

You're advocating paying illegals less wages, seriously. That's where the US government has FAILED because they do not raid and prosecute companies who employ illegal aliens. You do once illegals get some type of legal status, companies will only import more illegals,since as you stated they'll work for less wages.

The Guest Worker Program which is successful WORKS for migrant workers.

and yet there isn't enough of them

There is easy remedy for that, increase the Legal number of Guest Workers.

o quote: It's not hearsay it's a FACT please direct me to any post you've written concerning unemployed American Black citizens.

it isn't fact just because you say so, child.

That's very easy to solve cupcake, direct me to your post expressing concern of American Black citizens being unemployed in numbers not seen since Pre Civil Rights. I won't hold my breathe.”

Nick Kelsier on Jun 3, 2014 at 13:10:25

“No, child, I'm advocating paying them regular wages by giving them amnesty after we secure the borders and they go through a process to earn it. Why? Because I, unlike you, aren't dumb enough to think you can deport 15 million+ people without severely damaging the economy in the process plus there is the fact that you can't deport 15 million people like that in the first place because of the time and expense involved. President Obama has deported more illegals during his 5 years in office then the last 6 presidents combined...and the number is still approximately 15 million.

Now before you go off on your "Americans can do those jobs" yeah the types of jobs I'm referring to aren't jobs that most americans are willing to do. You may blather that is "insulting" all you want, child, but it is still fact.

As for guest workers, You ain't going to be able to increase it that much that quickly with that much efficiency. And I find it real curious that you seem to think you should be able to hire workers from outside the country and then when you're done with them ship them off home like you're putting a toy on a shelf when you're done playing with it until the next time. Sorry, farming is not something that can wait for that much bureaucracy..when its time to plant you only have a narrow window because of the weather and the same is true for harvesting.”

really? You think 25 million americans are going to work for sub-mininum wage jobs? Then pray tell, child, why didn't that happen in Alabama when they scared all their illegals away? Their agricultural sector nearly collasped because they didn't have enough workers.

and yet there isn't enough of them nor are you going to be able to ramp that up fast enough to cover. Plus the fact you'd see food prices jacked up to pay for it.

You certainly can and that's what should be done.

Do you want them to have to take responsibility

If they were "responsible" they would immigrated here legally.

r do you want to leave them in the dark so they can continue to be exploited by others?

Any exploitation they experience, they brought upon themselves. I don't feel sorry them.

“The issue is that there are millions of people with established lives,

Like the almost Two Million Americans we have in prison who also violated the law, those here illegally must suffer the consequences of their actions. Being poor and disenfranchised is not an excuse to illegally enter the United States of America, commit identity fraud and gaming the system. It does not work that way, as things look now and probably will turn out NOTHING will be done for folks here illegally.

The first reason is that the American people are still,angry and distrustful of Congress who lied to the American people during the Saint Ronnie Reagan great amnesty back in the 80's. Secondly we have over 25 million or so American citizens who are out of work and don't need more job competitors. This is about obeying our laws and not caving into those who knowing violated our countries laws. The GOP fully understand if they bring a vote to the floor they will be voted out of office, look at Minority Leader Eric Cantor who is chittingbricks in fear of losing his election bid because he's pro amnesty. It's also unfair to those who play by the rules and America is about fairness, mass amnesty is not fair.”
