    All right people. Let's look at this post.

    Title: "US Ordering 34 Million Green Cards for Illegal Plan" (this is also the headline of the "news article")
    Well, that means the US has sent a purchase order to a government contractor to print 34 million green cards for the plan with how to deal with illegal immigrants, right?

    Or maybe it means that the US has sent a purchase order to print 34 million green cards for Obama's illegal plan, an executive order he intends to declare dealing with immigrants.

    Well, not really. If you read the article it says that a draft proposal, or a call for proposal to vendors has been written to see who wants to bid on the contract to supply 4 million cards for 5 years, just in case there is an executive order declared that would legalize illegal immigrants.

    If you continue reading the article you get this statement, out of thin air:

    One estimate suggests 34 million cards will be printed in total.

    But if you keep on reading the "article" you see this:

    An official from the government agency told MailOnline on Monday a plan was developed "in case the president makes the move we think he will," even though the agency's Document Management Division isn't yet committing to buying the materials.

    Another official cautioned the plan was only a "contingency" in case immigration reform legislation passes in Congress, stressing it wasn't in anticipation of an Obama executive order.


    Ahhh...so the US has not ordered any green cards, much less 34 million green cards. There is a contingency call out to vendors to possibly print 4 million cards per year should an immigration reform bill be passed.

    This is why you should not get your news from NewsMax. They are just a lousy source for news.

    Unfortunately, that brother never has anything good to add to a post. He will find grammar errors, spelling mistakes, and in this case, he doesn't like your source for news! Just keep plugging on. You can't make everyone happy all the time, and all the time, you can't make everyone happy.

    Thanks for the post. BTW - California is ready to hand out millions of drivers license ID's on January 2nd! Welcome to California all you illegal, border jumpers. Moral of this story: Break our immigration laws, and we will give you residential status! :smilewinkgrin:

    You guys are absolutely ridiculous! InTheLight does nothing but point out the actual facts. He does it without any personal attacks whatsoever.

    Then in response you both simply try and attack him, the person, because you can't refute anything he posted.

    Both of you come out of this looking very foolish, yet if things follow suit around here the rest of your lock step crowd will chime in and simply dismiss the facts and attack.

    At least this came out before the Election ! Now if the Dems rule both Houses after 5 Nov - you might as well expect 34 million Green cards to be printed.

    Moral of the Story - Elect a GOP majority in Both houses.

    To my detractors:

    Answer Yes or No based on the article posted.

    "The US government is ordering 34 million green cards for illegal immigrant plan" ?

    Doesn't make any difference what the article says - what do the officials PLAN on doing.

    Doesn't make a difference what the article says? So people can post falsehoods with impunity?

    Officials have sent out a proposal for a contract. They are looking for vendors IN CASE there is a change in the immigration policies. They have NOT ordered any green card as article alleges.

    (And I guess answering a yes or no question is beyond your abilities.)

    From the article:
    An online solicitation by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services seeks vendors that can produce a minimum 4 million cards per year for five years, and 9 million in the early stages.

    It's no different if a business was expecting landing Wal Mart as a customer. They would be seeking vendors to produce packaging for their products (for example). JUST IN CASE they get the order from Wal Mart they want to be ready to rock and roll. But, no, no packages have been ordered.

    In this case, no green cards have been ordered.

    So what? Someone didn't like the source the OP used, I simply posted a different source. I never said a word about any of it.

    But, some people simply look for things to criticize, even when nothing was said.

    Someone was "me", and I objected to the false reporting that 34 million green cards had been ordered. I stated as an aside that you shouldn't trust NewsMax as a source.

    If it will make you happy the Fox news article is false as well.

    Here's the headline:
    Order for millions of blank work permits, green cards raising amnesty concerns

    No cards have been ordered. No blank work permits have been ordered. In this instance Fox is not a reliable news source.

    Well, SORRY, but if you say that 34 million green cards have been ordered and the facts are that NO CARDS HAVE BEEN ORDERED, that is going to get criticism.

    :BangHead:Where did I say cards had been ordered? Again, all I did was post a different source for the story.

    So they are preparing to put out bids for 20 million and the number may go as high as 34 million. What's with all the quibbling?

    The point is they are getting ready for Obama's illegal executive amnesty.

    And they are preparing to order twice as many as there are illegal aliens in the country. I wonder why????

    Well, not you personally, I meant "you" in the generic term, as in the Fox news article posted.

    The article should have said, "Immigration Service Putting Out Bids for Millions of Green Cards" NOT "34 Million Green Cards Ordered"

    Or getting ready for a new immigration law.

    That won't happen. Obama has killed any chance for a legislative solution.

    On purpose, I believe.
