HALEY BARBOUR: CONGRESS CAN STILL PASS AMNESTY AFTER CANTOR DEFEAT
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 16 Jun 2014 | by TONY LEE

Posted on 06/16/2014 8:04:02 PM PDT by kingattax

On Monday, despite House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's (R-VA) shocking primary loss last week that was viewed as a referendum against amnesty legislation, former Mississippi Governor and lobbyist Haley Barbour said the House could still pass amnesty legislation this year.

"I don't think Eric's loss should have anything to do with it," Barbour said at the New York Meeting before pushing for a bill that would give a pathway to citizenship to "everybody's who's here illegally" so long as they confess they are in America illegally, pay fines and back taxes, and are put on probation.

Barbour said the House should pass "a very strong bill" that is to the right of the Senate's comprehensive amnesty bill and emphasized that "we gotta control the border at the end of the day or the American people will have a right to be furious with us."

Harbour has chicken producers and rich “windshield farmers” who love that cheap brown labor by illegals. They count on the taxpayers to subsidize that labor force with free health care, food stamps, school for their children, including free school supplies and free breakfasts and lunches. Sweet deal for Haley’s cronies!

Passing a new border invasion law, when current border protection laws are not being enforced, is insanity. And that’s the state of the GOPe. Pathetic.

The Dims lost big so they just doubled down on it all while they still could!

What are you smoking? They didn't lose anything, they won big time. They imposed socialized medicine on the country, it performed as poorly as it could, and now it's done. No one is even trying to repeal it, or change it. Along the way, they used it to turn the Supreme Court into a joke. They may lose a few seats in one election, but they don't care, they'll make it back, and now the U.S. has permanent socialized medicine, and conservative opposition to anything has been made a joke of. I can't imagine a bigger victory they could have.

Riposte: secure the border, a complete moratorium on “undocumented immigration” (it is, uh, illegal) and once that’s done, even if it takes years, then we’ll talk about “comprehensive immigration reform.”
As it is, Haley, we know you guys are like the campus Lothario who promises his dates anything in order to get them to say “yes.” All you want is amnesty. Been there, done that.
No. No. No. And “No”.

This is sure to help his friend, Thad Cochran, in his runoff election in MS. Never did like Haley Barbour. He was a LOUSY RNC Chmn. When Clinton was vulnerable, Barbour decided to sit on a huge pile of GOP cash, rather than begin early to frame the ‘96 debate against him. By the time Barbour decided to part with the cash, it was too late. And Bob Dole was a lethargic candidate, to boot.

Nothing. It subsidizes packing plants in Mississippi.

“we gotta control the border at the end of the day or the American people will have a right to be furious with us.”

I am already furious and I already have a right to be furious, the border was not protected after the last amnesty by democrats or Republicans or lobbyist. Why in hell would any sane person believe any of your promises to protect our borders or enforce immigration laws? Enforce current immigration laws and protect our borders for the next thirty years as was promised after the last amnesty 30 years ago and possibly there will be something to talk about. I’m sorry Governor Barbour, I have voted for and defended you in the past but with your push for amnesty and your push to control a Senate seat where Senator Cochran is obviously no longer capable of carrying out his duties or be able to chair the Appropriations Committee if Republicans carry the Senate. You have lost all credibility with me and I will not support you again and anyone you endorse is now suspect, for all I care you can go back to DC and take Henry, who apparently believes he is the Republican party in Mississippi, with you.

Good point. A lot of people — the husband included — like Newt because he is glib and can land a zinger on the Rats from time to time.

I have cheered his barbs myself on occasion, but I know it’s all a show. He’s a good actor and shallow like most actors.
