Representative Mike Pence (R) on Republican inaction:

"Congress has spent the last 18 months telling the American people the immigration system is broken," Pence said. "Without significant progress, there may be a price to pay."

Like the article says (between the lines) Americans simply are fed up with these recent high immigration rates.

Pence's program is completely unrealistic. He expects 12 million undocumented to voluntarily leave the States for his corporate privatized Ellis island centers on the slim hope they can come back for a garbage three year work visa. Plus, it excludes the Irish and anybody else from outside Latin America.

How can somebody from Irish immigrants come up with a program that does nothing for the Irish?

I'm American and I want something done to keep the Irish here.

America without the Irish is not America. America without the Irish would be England.

Legalize the Irish!

Put that in your nail and bite it.

The Irish get .19% of American green cards, yet they make up only .0615% of the world's population. That's something to bite into.

I would check the facts before I bite into the unsupported statistics posted by Nail Biter. If you like the taste of cow cookies, however, take a big bite and chew well.

Pences answer to immigration debate is so backward even Geronimo would have said that it would'nt work when the first people started coming here. Send home 12 million working people, has he a share in an airline or does he just want to slow down the whole economy. His plan makes sense if you or your faimly members are aspiring busboys or turnip snigers but for the rest of America it only has a damageing affect

The world population is just a wee bit bigger than the number of green cards given out, so nail biter's insinuation that the Irish have too many greencards is just a wee bit out of hand.

Plus back biter drops the zero in 0.19% making it look like almost 20 percent to the quick reader.

nail biter said...

The .19% is from the IRIL website. Ireland's population is 4 million, while the world is 6.5 billion. You do the math.

Johnny "Red" Cave said...

Are there 4.5 billion greencards?

What exactly is it Biter is trying to say?

nail biter said...

What I'm saying is that since the Irish make up .0615% of the world's population, they should receive .0615% of the allotment of green cards, rather than the .19% of green cards they currently receive.

They do not give out greencards based upon world population figures.

not biting;
so why should the irish feel shortchanged?
